Aubergine 23-01-2018 12:35 PM


Showered and put on clean clothes. Achievement unlocked! Meeting a friend for coffee in a bit. It's cold and bright outside, which is my favourite weather. :)

not_so_insig 23-01-2018 12:46 PM

It's quite nice here for winter. Have workmen outside which is making me feel paranoid. Hopefully having a tesco shopping order today.

chinahorse 23-01-2018 12:54 PM

Well done aubergine :) and that's lovely weather to have. It wet here.

Hope you manage to get the shop dawn!

I've showered, put my bed linen on to wash, hoovered and washed up. Which apart from wipe the surfaces and Polish the cooker hood is all I plan to do today chore wise. Well apart from put bed linen back on the bed lol.

not_so_insig 23-01-2018 01:09 PM

I have my shopping delivered and it's come. Had 3 substitutions but I accepted them anyway.

chinahorse 23-01-2018 01:17 PM

Substitutions are getting much better than they used to be.

not_so_insig 23-01-2018 01:17 PM

Also I feel sorry for the holby city loving people of Wales. BBC 1 Wales have decided to put some regional crap instead. I don't watch it though.

I find tesco quite good subsitution wise. One was tuna which instead of being in water was in brine but as long as it's not oil I am not bothered.

chinahorse 23-01-2018 01:56 PM

Thats good then.

I need to hang up my laundry but I cba.

Sketchy 23-01-2018 02:08 PM

Hey all. I’m just up. Needed the sleep.

Got the fire on. I’m cold. I was going to go to Asda, but I can’t be bothered, so I’ll just go to Tesco round the corner. I’ll do that later.

How is everyone?

chinahorse 23-01-2018 02:14 PM

Do you feel rested?

Theres no problem with that as long as the Tesco has everything you need.

Im being a grown up eating cadbury spread off the spoon and contemplating watching Moana or Mulan as a reward after I call e.on

Sketchy 23-01-2018 02:17 PM

I can get what I need from Tesco, but it has less choices.

I still feel tired, but not as tired as normal.

That sounds good Lillie. Yum Cadbury spread.

chinahorse 23-01-2018 02:46 PM

Well thats an improvement at least Lorraine! (always want to call you rainey)

Suppose if its got what you need theres no issue.

I need to stop chain drinking tea. Been awake less than 4 hours, have had 6 cups and keep needing the loo!

Sketchy 23-01-2018 02:57 PM

You can call my Rainey if you like.

Tea is always good. I might make a cuppa.

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 02:58 PM

Tea is always good!!

chinahorse 23-01-2018 03:07 PM

Yay, Rainey it is!! :)

Tea is always the answer.

Hi Beckie.

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 03:09 PM

Hey Lillie
How's your day going?

chinahorse 23-01-2018 03:12 PM

Ok enough so far. Apart from the headache, which I suspect is lack of sleep.

Got pretty much everything I wanted to achieve today chore wise done- apart from putting on fresh bed linen and Ive only been showered and dressed since 11.15am. Wish my boss would hurry up and send the rotas to me so that I can book a hairdressers appointment lol.

You up to much?

chinahorse 23-01-2018 03:13 PM

How soon is too sonon to call up and ask where about on a waiting list you are?

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 03:32 PM

Headaches are awful
Hope it eases up soon

Sounds like you've had a productive day

There's no harm in ringing up whenever!
They'll still be able to give you some sort of answer i expect

chinahorse 23-01-2018 03:35 PM

Thanks :)

I just don't want to sound pushy but due to one thing and another and no fault of theirs Ive been dealing with the issue for nearly a year now.

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 03:38 PM

I don't think you'll sound pushy
It's perfectly reasonable to check on things
That is a seriously long time to be dealing with something alone

chinahorse 23-01-2018 04:00 PM

I called and they have apparently sent a letter but Im having it fixed on the 19th Feb!! YAY!

Boss is moaning I need 2 days off now. Ffffs

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 04:03 PM

That's good news!

What's he moaning about?

chinahorse 23-01-2018 04:07 PM

He's already done the rotas and now has to swap his only day off and doesn't have anyone else to swap with and if I need more than 2 days off he can't accommodate it blah blah blah

I'm having minor figging surgery!! Not like I want time off to go shopping.

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 04:14 PM

What a nightmare!!
Not like you're doing it for the lolz!

Sketchy 23-01-2018 04:43 PM

I hope it goes well for you Lillie. Your boss doesn’t sound very helpful.

I’m back from the shop. Got it over with and I now have Diet Coke.

chinahorse 23-01-2018 04:44 PM

Thanks Rainey.

He is simultaneously a good an terrible person/boss/friend.

Yay! Now you can snuggle and chill out.

Sketchy 23-01-2018 04:48 PM

My fire is on and I’m nice and toasty.

What are you guys up to?

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 04:50 PM

Well done Lorraine!
Its always best to get it over with!

That must be hard to deal with Lillie

Im trying to work on assignment.
Its due on Friday and got about 1100 words to go :ermm:

Sketchy 23-01-2018 04:52 PM

You can do it Beckie.

chinahorse 23-01-2018 04:56 PM

Thats sounds ace Rainey :)

You can do it Beckie. Plan plan plan plan. Thats my advice.

And urgh I need to moan to other humans. Boss is a dick. I have 6 days in a row starting Friday. When I moan it 'doesn't count as Monday is a half day'. I HAVE MULTIPLE SEVERE ENDURING HEALTH CONDITIONS YOU JERK. And then on the 3 weeks of rota I have I don't have 2 days off together. Like are you for real?! He has his 2 days off together on every single rota. I don't mind maybe 1 week of 4 or in an emergency but part of the reason my health is once again declining is the lack of time to relax and recover in. I'm so angry. Also he always puts me in on the delivery days unless I ask for it off- its all lifting and stuff which aggrevates my health.

Sketchy 23-01-2018 05:02 PM

That’s awful Lillie. Could you try talking to him again? Explain how it affects your health. I hope he listens.

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 05:09 PM

Thanks guys!

That sounds horrible Lillie
Do you have a union to go to or anything?
That's not right at all

chinahorse 23-01-2018 05:12 PM

Get your butt off here and do some work Beckie!! :-P

And no union, I will try to talk to him again but he won't do anything about htis months rota even if he does anything at all.

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 05:24 PM

Yeah I should do that :p

He sounds like an absolute t*at tbh!
I don't know how you put up with it

one_step_closer 23-01-2018 05:43 PM

Hi everyone.

Lillie, are there other people who work with you who could have a word with your boss? Or would some kind of letter from your GP help at all?

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 05:54 PM

Hi Lindsay
How are you?

Letter from GP is good idea!

one_step_closer 23-01-2018 05:56 PM

Hi, I'm trying to hold on to semi-okness.

How are you getting on Beckie?

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 06:02 PM

Hope you're ok <3

I have 911 words to go.
Now it's under 1000 it feels more manageable!
Getting there slowly but surely.

one_step_closer 23-01-2018 06:04 PM

Thank you.

You're making good progress there, keep going if you're up to it and make sure you do something really nice for yourself when you finish up for the day.

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 06:06 PM

Thanks :)

I'm getting my chinese takeaway tonight for after slimming world so that will be a nice treat!

one_step_closer 23-01-2018 06:08 PM

Oh yeah. You've reminded me that I wanted prawn toast! Hope you enjoy your takeaway. I went to McDonalds for lunch so I'll need to have something light for my dinner.

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 06:12 PM


Ooo maccy D's!!
What did you get?

one_step_closer 23-01-2018 06:14 PM

I got a double cheeseburger and fries. Probably should have went for a normal cheeseburger and no fries but what's done is done! I was tempted to get a McFlurry too but held back.

What do you like from McDonalds?

Aubergine 23-01-2018 06:17 PM

Hey. :)

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 06:22 PM

I usually get a big mac meal.
I love chicken nuggets too!
And the fries have to be dipped in a strawberry milkshake :p

Hey Aubergine!
How are you?

Aubergine 23-01-2018 06:24 PM

Love a Big Mac!

Fries in milkshake?!

I'm tired. I have clean sheets though. :)

Cacoethes 23-01-2018 06:27 PM

Fries in a milkshake is the best thing ever!!

Yay for clean sheets!
Such a nice feeling

Aubergine 23-01-2018 06:31 PM

Can't say I've ever tried it! I haven't been to McD's in years.

chinahorse 23-01-2018 06:33 PM

Yay for clean sheets! I will too when I can be bothered to put them back on.

Eww fries in a shake is just wrong.
