Yay for hair washing, boo for work!!

chinahorse 14-02-2018 01:54 PM

All stuff that needs doing.

Hope you have a good lesson beckie. And do you science test *prods*

Oh no emma, one of you silly long shifts again?

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 01:59 PM

Still impressed you did it though lol. I have loads that needs doing and I ignore :-p

Yep. Working until 2pm tomorrow

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 02:01 PM

And I will do my test soon.
Just building up to it!

Im the same as Emma, loads that needs doing and ignore it all!

That sucks Emma! :(

chinahorse 14-02-2018 02:15 PM

How do you do such long shifts?! It'd end me.

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 02:17 PM

The middle bit is a ‘sleep in’ from 10pm. So we get woken up if they have any problems but usually manage some sleep. Start ‘waking shift’ at 6.30am tomorrow :-(

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 02:17 PM

Was impossible on quitiepine but ok now on aripiprazole

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 02:19 PM

Do you get woken up often?

I once did an early shift then slept at work and went back for a night shift.
That was tough.

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 02:28 PM

Not too often. Maybe a couple of times. Usually get to bed about 1.30am

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 02:30 PM

That is quite late!

My laptop is open!

not_so_insig 14-02-2018 02:34 PM

I have some news. The council have finally emptied my bin this morning. Huzzah!

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 02:37 PM

Yay Dawn :-)

Well done Beckie!

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 02:37 PM

Its so sad when opening a laptop is an achievement XD

not_so_insig 14-02-2018 02:54 PM

Thanks Emma. I was worried that they might miss my bin as it wasn't with the others (and Thursday is my bin collection day) because other people were dumping rubbish by my bin. But because it has an assisted collection sticker on it they collected it. It knackered me out moving it back so I was going to move it tonight as I thought they would empty it tomorrow.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 03:06 PM

Glad they finally collected it.
Bin drama is the worst!

not_so_insig 14-02-2018 03:13 PM

I have a cat on me.

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 03:20 PM

I’m on the train on my way to work. Cat sounds better option :-p

not_so_insig 14-02-2018 03:23 PM

Hope work goes ok Emma.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 03:25 PM

Hope work is ok!!

I want an animal on my lap!
Preferably a dog.
I'm more of a dog person

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 03:27 PM

My mum has just bought a Great Dane puppy to go with their labradoodle and cocker spaniel. They have a farm though.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 03:30 PM


The fam has a tri colour collie pupper
She is adorable

Eska 14-02-2018 03:34 PM

Those dogs all sound wonderful <3

I'm on my way to the gym... will hopefully have more energy than I did yesterday!

nonperson 14-02-2018 03:37 PM

Hi everyone.

I also have a cat on me. I’m only working half days for the rest of the week so I can look after him after his hernia operation.

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 03:37 PM

Have fun! Everyone seems very productive today!

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 03:40 PM

All dogs are wonderful.

Well done for going to the gym eska!

Hey nonperson!
Thats good you get to look after him.

I've not been productive at all :p

It's pouring down!
Driving lesson in about an hour.
Not driven in rain before!

not_so_insig 14-02-2018 03:41 PM

I am not very productive as I am just watching tv.

nonperson 14-02-2018 03:42 PM

I wasn’t very productive at work but did do the washing up when I got home.

Can’t move now so it’s going to be an unproductive afternoon =P

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 03:44 PM

So half of us have been productive and half unproductive :p

Eska 14-02-2018 03:44 PM

Thanks Beckie! I hope the lesson goes well. Experience of driving in the rain is definitely a good thing to have.

I hope your cat recovers quickly nonperson.

How are you, Emma?

not_so_insig 14-02-2018 03:44 PM

My cat has jumped off me now.

Eska 14-02-2018 03:45 PM

I had a very unproductive morning too. Hopefully will get more done this afternoon, as well as the gym I need to pick up a couple of gifts for the boyfriend.

Eska 14-02-2018 03:46 PM

Aw no, Dawn, that's a shame. Still hopefully you will get more kitty snuggles soon.

not_so_insig 14-02-2018 03:58 PM

I am watching my cat using the puzzle feeder. It took her 10 mins of staring at it to work it out yesterday. She's intelligent.

nonperson 14-02-2018 04:00 PM

I’m watching Winter Olympics. Figure skating, not really my thing but was watching doubles luge earlier. Now that’s a totally weird but fascinating sport!

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 04:07 PM

I can't find anything to watch on tv!

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 04:12 PM

Science test Beckie! :-p

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 04:16 PM

I can't find it online!
I think somethng has gone wrong on moodle because it won't let me access the test.
I've asked on the college group chat, nothing I can do until I get a reply!

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 04:17 PM

Haha ok, I’ll let you off then!

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 04:18 PM

I'm just hoping that something has gone wrong and I can't do the test.
Buys me a bit more time to not do anything :p

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 04:23 PM

Lol! I’m still on my way into work. Bored!

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 04:25 PM

That sounds like a long journey!

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 04:28 PM

Two hours when I get a lift to the station :-(

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 04:30 PM

Wow! That is seriously long!

Sketchy 14-02-2018 04:38 PM

Hey all.

I’m just back home after staying over at my sister’s. Drinking Fanta sugar free. Yum.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 04:39 PM

Hi Lorraine!
Fanta is nice!

Sketchy 14-02-2018 04:44 PM

I haven’t had Fanta in ages. A nice treat. A change from my usual diet irn bru.

What are you up to Beckie?

Aubergine 14-02-2018 04:45 PM


Sketchy 14-02-2018 04:47 PM

Hey Aubergine. What are you up to?

How is everyone?

Aubergine 14-02-2018 04:53 PM

I've just been to my mindfulness course. It was good, even if I did cry! Now I am sitting on my bed until my water heats up so I can wash up ready for my friend coming for dinner later. :)

How are you?

Sketchy 14-02-2018 04:57 PM

I’m sorry it made you cry, but maybe that was a good thing. A cry can make you feel good. I hope you have fun with your friend.

I’m ok. I’m in the mood to do some charcoal drawings. Might dig out my supplies and see if I need to get new supplies. I’m going to the art shop tomorrow. I love going there.
