Who decided that the world had to start at like 9/9.30? Why couldn't we start at like 10?

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 12:58 PM

Hi indigorose- that sounds a good idea :-)

Urgh, early mornings are the worst Lillie!

Aubergine 02-02-2018 01:42 PM

Lunch. I am tired. 5 hours to go and then it's a five day weekend, starting with speak to no one Saturday!

nonperson 02-02-2018 02:16 PM

I’m having a speak to no one (unless I absolutely have to) Friday.

After a while 10am would become too early as well!

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 02:23 PM

That sounds a good plan Aubergine and Person.

I’m just on the bus on the way to my friend’s house. Working the whole weekend so will be another epic two and a half hours travel tomorrow :-(

nonperson 02-02-2018 02:30 PM

The difference is I’m at work and should be nice and friendly to people!

That is epic. Can no one give you a lift to work?

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 02:33 PM

No cos it’s about 35 miles away. My dad is picking me up on Sunday though so only have to do the trip one way.

How’s work going?

nonperson 02-02-2018 02:58 PM

Ah one way travel is much better than two ways.

Works going ok, think I’m actually on top of things now. Thought I was going to be running around like crazy to get everything done. And I’ve realised I do have to speak to someone today at 3:15! Yay... x.x

Sketchy 02-02-2018 05:19 PM

Hey all.

I’m at my sister’s and staying overnight. The cat is being adorable.

Cpt_Stunning 02-02-2018 05:49 PM

I'm watching a scary film, & the woman's just about to look in the mirror, had to pause it.

Sketchy 02-02-2018 08:34 PM

Hope it’s not too scary Chris.

Aubergine 02-02-2018 08:37 PM


Pomegranate 02-02-2018 08:42 PM

Heya Aubergine! How was your visit from your Mum?

Cacoethes 02-02-2018 08:42 PM

Hey guys!
Ive just had a tattoo done!

nonperson 02-02-2018 08:45 PM

Hi all.

What tattoo did you get, Beckie?

Aubergine 02-02-2018 08:45 PM

She didn't come in the end because my sister was late home and the table was booked for 6:45pm, so they didn't have time to pop in. I don't really mind. I'm clean though and have eaten chicken curry. Just sat on my bed in my pyjamas, eating chocolate orange (sorry Beckie) and listening to music.

How're you?

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 08:46 PM

Ooooh what tattoo did you get Beckie?

Well done Aubergine. Are you in pjs etc?

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 08:47 PM

Oh, just seen you are! Under covers?

Cacoethes 02-02-2018 08:58 PM

I got a star with like a galaxy inside it.
And the stars are done with UV ink so they glow under UV light!

Well done Aubergine!
Veerrryyy jealous of the chocolate orange!!

nonperson 02-02-2018 08:59 PM

That's super cool o.o

I keep thinking about tattoos but don't think one would suit me. Keep watching Tattoo Fixers lately. =P

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 08:59 PM

That sounds very cool actually Beckie! Where did you get it? I’ve never heard of UV in tattoos but then I have none myself.

Cacoethes 02-02-2018 09:05 PM

Tattoos are awesome!

The tattooist recommendeded the UV stuff.

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 09:07 PM


How many do you have? Have you ever had scars tattooed ever? I think that’s the only time I’d get one but not sure whether there’s a limit on what they can tattoo over.

What’s your next tattoo going to be?

Aubergine 02-02-2018 09:15 PM

I am not under covers, but I am wrapped in my heated throw. :)

Just considering whether using olbas oil that expired in 2013 is a bad thing...?

Aubergine 02-02-2018 09:16 PM

Tattoo sounds good, Beckie! Of course, I shall now have to get the same one...

Sketchy 02-02-2018 09:26 PM

The tattoo sounds awesome.

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 09:27 PM

Personally my theory would be ‘what’s the worst that could happen?’ And I use it. However, as a health care worker.... ‘expiry dates are there for s reason. Meds May be more or less effective after their expiry date’ blah blah blah :-p

Aubergine 02-02-2018 09:32 PM

Well, it's in my diffuser and still smells nice. That's enough for me! Yes, "do not use after their expiry date etc blah." I chucked away a box of tablets that cost 10,000 when they went out of date a couple of weeks back. Mad.

Cacoethes 02-02-2018 09:41 PM

This tattoo was over some scars.
I'll post a pic when i get home!

I reckon the oil should be fine!!

That's a crazy amount of money!!

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 09:42 PM

Crazy. It’s like on the wards when we dispose of patients individuallly labelled medication....such a waste! Made me so cross.

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 09:42 PM

Ooooh. You out Beckie? What you upto?

Aubergine 02-02-2018 09:48 PM

It is a crazy amount of money when you think it's for 21 capsules, which is one cycle's worth, and people are often on it for life once they've been diagnosed with the condition. I know pharmaceutical companies have to get back their research costs etc, but it sill does not justify a price that high. They are raking it in at the expense of patients and the NHS. Makes me so cross!

Aubergine 02-02-2018 09:48 PM

Beckie! How dare you be doing fun things. You must sit and talk to us. :P

Cacoethes 02-02-2018 09:59 PM

When i was at work we had to chuck out a load of super expensive wound dressings because it had the person's name on them all and he passed away
Such a waste!

It annoys me too Aubergine!!

I'm still at the tattoo place!
Chels is getting one now!

not_so_insig 02-02-2018 10:11 PM

Hullo everyone!

Aubergine 02-02-2018 10:14 PM

Oh cool! What's she having done?

Dressings are so, so expensive. A while ago I looked into how expensive it would be to buy some, rather than faffing about getting prescriptions etc. One box of 5 dressings was just under two hundred pounds.

Aubergine 02-02-2018 10:14 PM

HEy dawn. :)

not_so_insig 02-02-2018 10:19 PM

Hey Ducky.

I fell asleep before. Catching up on Corrie.

Aubergine 02-02-2018 10:22 PM

I don't watch any soaps. What's coronation street like? I hope you're enjoying it. :)

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 10:22 PM

Sounds like a nice chilled evening Dawn.

What time are you planning on sleeping Aubergine?

Aubergine 02-02-2018 10:29 PM

I'm not sure yet, Emma. I'm worried I'll find it hard to sleep, so am currently avoiding it. I'm shattered though, so must get into my bed soon. Though I may wait until I feel sleepy and tired, rather than tired and not sleepy. If that makes sense to anyone?

What are you up to?

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 10:46 PM

Makes perfect sense. Have you taken a diazepam?

Aubergine 02-02-2018 11:01 PM

I haven't, but I don't usually use those for sleep unless it's gone midnight when I need to take something. I've got zopiclone I could take or temazepam as something a little more heavy duty. So lots of tools at my disposal! I could actually set up a little pharmacy where I live, I think.

How are you doing? Sleep at any time soon?

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 11:07 PM

Sounds good! I think you should take something if it gets late and you’re still not sleepy. I’ve taken prn clonazepam as well as normal. I’m in bed. Contemplating zopiclone soon. I think o really need an early night. In bed at the moment with lights off but TV on. Work and sleep in tomorrow so I know o won’t sleep well.

Aubergine 02-02-2018 11:18 PM

I think I'll take something at 11pm if I'm not sleepy/asleep by then. Then I should sleep through.

An early night sounds like a good plan. I hope you get some decent rest in preparation for work over the next couple of days. Anything good on TV?

Pomegranate 02-02-2018 11:19 PM

Sleeping through sounds good :-). Nothing too exciting. Got law and order on at the moment but I’m also talking to a friend on text so it’s more background noise.

Aubergine 02-02-2018 11:26 PM

Oh I like Law and Order. Glad you're chatting to a friend via text. It can be so good to talk.

Sleeping through does sound good.

Cacoethes 02-02-2018 11:58 PM

I am also watching Law and Order!

Posted pics of tattoo in picture board if anyone is interested!
Finally home and cooking dinner

Really hope you sleep well tonight Aubergine!

Aubergine 03-02-2018 12:20 AM

I'll take a look. :)

What's for dinner? Bet you're really hungry eating this late!

Thank you. I'm in bed with the light off and have taken zopiclone. Fingers crossed. Send sleepy vibes, please.
