Hey beckie.

I'm in the city for a job interview. Surprised I made it to the bus as I didnt get out of bed until 15 mins before I had to leave the house.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 11:04 AM

Hope you enjoy church!

I'm ok. Off swimming in about an hour

That's some speedy getting ready Lillie!
Good luck at your interview!

Haha Lillie!

chinahorse 31-01-2020 12:07 PM

Guys. I got the job. She wanted me to start Monday but I wanted the contract first so start Tuesday we think. She offered me the position after like 5 minutes.

nonperson 31-01-2020 12:11 PM

Wow! Super well done Lillie! So proud of you. =)

What job is it? Do you think you'll enjoy it?

tamobhuuta 31-01-2020 12:44 PM

Well done China! I hope you enjoy your new job.

tamobhuuta 31-01-2020 12:58 PM

That's great :) Any plans for today?

nonperson 31-01-2020 01:08 PM

It was Victoria sponge, Tamo =)

I think Lillie deserves cake today!

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 01:49 PM

That's fantastic Lillie! Well done!
Will you be doing anything to celebrate?

Victoria sponge is yummy!

I've finished my swim

nonperson 31-01-2020 02:21 PM

Did you treat yourself to a coffee afterwards? Can't remember what one it is, something with caramel sauce?

tamobhuuta 31-01-2020 02:32 PM

Oo I do like Victoria sponge but nothing beats chocolate fudge.

chinahorse 31-01-2020 02:43 PM

All cake is nommy!! Chocolate is the best though.

Did you enjoy the swim beckie?

I've wandered around the shops. Bought some mascara so I dont look like an alien at the new job and mine was dry today and some black socks because I only own ones with things on. And some immune booster tea for a friend who ill and I'll see this weekend if shes feeling better. And wrapping paper,a card with a Mexican banana on it and a cuddly dinosaur for a different friend.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 03:01 PM

I did have a coffee!
I had a cappuccino this time

I did enjoy it thanks Lillie :)

Sounds like a successful shopping trip!

chinahorse 31-01-2020 03:14 PM

Ewww. Latte is where it's at! Thpugh I paid for mine to be vanilla and it wasnt. Grumps.

chinahorse 31-01-2020 03:14 PM

Cant wait to get home. Stuff to sort out for new job and then nap time.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 03:20 PM

Ah that sucks.

Have you got lots to sort out?

chinahorse 31-01-2020 03:29 PM

Universal credit and council tax as I've got a hugely reduced rate because of my income atm. And then I need to call my course provider as I'm suspended atm and get that going again or I'm not legally ment to be in surgery. Then need to dig out my help B immunity certificate, p45, NI card, DBS check and probably more I cant remember. And I'm starting to get super worried I've forgotten everything!

chinahorse 31-01-2020 03:30 PM

And may need to call cmht when I know what my day off will be to rearrange things.

chinahorse 31-01-2020 03:33 PM

Oh and I'm getting a discretionary housing payment from the council too so need to stop that.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 03:38 PM

That is rather a lot to sort out!

nonperson 31-01-2020 04:10 PM

Eek... o.o

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 04:32 PM

Hey np
How's your day going?

chinahorse 31-01-2020 04:40 PM

Waiting for a call back from my course so can't do anything else. Well Im wrapping things in really cheap nasty paper.

Hey np.

nonperson 31-01-2020 06:29 PM

My day was going really slowly. But home now... and achey. =/

What's everyone up to?

chinahorse 31-01-2020 06:39 PM

Glad Toure home but sorry you're achey. Nice hot bath/ shower?

I'm laid on the sofa watching tv. The cat has wedged himself between my side and the sofa and is having a bath.

nonperson 31-01-2020 06:44 PM

Nah, it's too cold and dark now for bathing/showering.

Is it one of those really noisy wet sort of cat-baths?

I have a cat on my lap. He squeezed himself on in front of the laptop.

chinahorse 31-01-2020 06:51 PM

Not have a light in your bathroom?! :-P

He was crunching his claws- shudder. And hes now balanced back on my side after his bath.

Aww. He missed you.

nonperson 31-01-2020 06:53 PM

Haha, yeah I do have a bathroom light! I meant dark outside, I suppose. Makes me want to hibernate and not move.

Eugh claw crunching...

I dunno, I think he just wants my warmth.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 06:54 PM

Glad you're home np!

Nawww kitties!

chinahorse 31-01-2020 07:01 PM

I think my kitties presence has a lot to do with my heated throw.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 07:04 PM

Ah that may be it!

chinahorse 31-01-2020 07:38 PM

Why has my local news chosen a noisy warehouse to broadcast live from? Can barely understand what's going on.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 07:40 PM

So annoying when they do that kind of thing!

chinahorse 31-01-2020 07:41 PM

It's a Brexit special. Like just shut up about it already.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 08:16 PM

Ugh Brexit.
So sick of it!

chinahorse 31-01-2020 08:47 PM

I thought it would be over tonight but apparently we've not fully negotiated it for another 11 months or something.

How is it only 7.45?!

Shirayuki 31-01-2020 08:50 PM

hi guys, how are you and whats up?

how is it only 2:48?! i thought it was at least 2:58 so only two minutes of school left but nope. i want the weekend to not come though (see venting form for why)

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 09:08 PM

Oh how ridiculous.
I don't really keep up with it all. Cant get my head round it!

Hey shira!

chinahorse 31-01-2020 09:15 PM

I only see bits when/if I watch the news beckie. Whatre you up to?

Hey shira.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 09:38 PM

I'm watching would I lie to you
What about you?

zombiehunter 31-01-2020 09:39 PM

my wee granny is being transferred to a different hospital right now as I type this

it has better facilities to help her and stuff but its further away than the one she was in which makes visiting difficult

we are going to visit her there tomorrow though

chinahorse 31-01-2020 09:43 PM

Cant deal with that show.

I'm chatting to a friend and semi watching traffic cops.

Sucks about visiting zombie but hopefully means shell get home quicker.

Cacoethes 31-01-2020 09:48 PM

Aw zombie that must be difficult
I hope she gets better soon

I like traffic cops

zombiehunter 31-01-2020 09:49 PM

its unlikely she'll be coming home :-(

even she does get back on her feet itsnpt safe for her to be alone so we are thinking about care homes for her
