It was indeed hilarious.

one_step_closer 26-11-2019 03:55 PM

Poor Bertie, but I would have laughed too!

I hope your days are all going well.

chinahorse 26-11-2019 04:00 PM

I cant work out if a bird I can see out the window is real or likea garden ornament.

Hows your day going?

one_step_closer 26-11-2019 04:05 PM

Haha! You'll need to go outside and poke it!

I've been busier than usual, had a meeting thing and then went to the gym with some of the people from the group because the gym is doing a 12 days of fitness challenge thing so we need to come in on an extra day to keep up with the exercises.

Also had a shower and a kitty got the door open and came in. I'm glad there was no one in my house!

chinahorse 26-11-2019 04:08 PM

Its raining and I've already had bath today!

Well done on your busy day!

Haha naughty kitty! I don't actually ever close my bathroom door so often have a cat attacking the shower curtain. Perks of living alone.

one_step_closer 26-11-2019 04:19 PM

Keep a very close eye on the bird thing then. Is it still there?

My shower curtain doesn't go all the way round because I have a stupid shower and the bit that is exposed is right at the door so I prefer to keep it closed in case someone breaks in or something and sees me! Kind of ridiculous I know!

Are you doing anything nice with the rest of your day?

chinahorse 26-11-2019 04:29 PM

It is. So perhaps it's an ornament?

Oh I see! You need a longer shower curtain! Or perhaps a second one?

I'm crocheting under a blanket and doing laundry. Because its exploding out the bin.

not_so_insig 26-11-2019 04:46 PM

I am home. I have been to the hearing voices group. It was quite good. My headache has gone today after the flu jab.

chinahorse 26-11-2019 05:14 PM

Glad the group is good. Will you go again?

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 05:15 PM

I'm back on the ward.
Last Christmas was quite good! Even though I've had the song stuck in my head since it ended.

I always lock my bathroom door when I'm in the shower. At home anyway. The en suites have no doors here.

chinahorse 26-11-2019 05:18 PM

Makes me wanna see it even more now.

No doors at all?! Odd. At the priory the had like 3/4 doors and everywhere else I've been they have full doors.

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 05:36 PM

There was a very emotional twist at the end!

Nope! There's meant to be a curtain but this room hasn't had one since the last time I was here.
There used to be doors about 4 years ago but they took them all off for some reason.

not_so_insig 26-11-2019 05:38 PM

Yes I will go again Lillie.

Christmas light switch on in the next village tonight. I think I have avoided the annual drowning out of the telly.

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 05:55 PM

I was gutted to miss the light switch on in my town

tamobhuuta 26-11-2019 06:13 PM

On our unit the en suites have foam doors attached by velcro so it's safer but gives you privacy.

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 06:16 PM

That sounds sensible
I don't know what was wrong with the doors anyway
The same key opened them so it wasnt really making things much more dangerous

chinahorse 26-11-2019 06:55 PM

Oh man was it a difficult to cope with emotional twist?

Think the lights were switched on after the christmas market at mine on Sunday but didn't hang about to see.

not_so_insig 26-11-2019 07:00 PM

I saw the float for the Christmas switch on in the end. When I was having my Tesco delivery the float went on the next street. There was an Santa waving to everyone. Fortunately he didn't stop. The Tesco man was wtf is going on?!

chinahorse 26-11-2019 07:29 PM

Aww nice for the kids Dawn.

not_so_insig 26-11-2019 07:44 PM

They shut the main street for several hours in the next village so that they can put kiddies rides on it. Which means that the buses have to divert their route.

chinahorse 26-11-2019 07:46 PM

Oo rides are fun.

one_step_closer 26-11-2019 08:28 PM

I just did my stupid ordering a takeaway because I'm stressed, a dessert one, and the guy who delivered it would not stop talking which included telling me about how he has a sexual relationship with someone but she isn't actually his girlfriend...thanks, I really needed to know that. It's put me off ordering again though so that's a win!

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 08:30 PM

It was a bit of a heart wrenching emotional twist!

Wow that's.....slightly oversharing there lindsay!
That would put me off ordering too!!

chinahorse 26-11-2019 08:30 PM

Suppose that's a win then?

one_step_closer 26-11-2019 08:36 PM

He's the owner of the shop too :laugh: I do hope it puts me off in the future because I need to stop eating so much rubbish.

How is everyones evening going?

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 08:41 PM

I'm just waiting for night staff to come on so they can do supper and I can get a hot drink
Could ask to get some hot water now but they're probably all busy with notes and shiz

chinahorse 26-11-2019 08:47 PM

Probably not worth moaning to the shop then lindsay!

Yeah true beckie. Never get anything done in the half hour before shift change.

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 08:48 PM


What are you up to Lillie?

chinahorse 26-11-2019 08:59 PM

Trying to crochet in the dark because I'm too lazy to turn the big light on.

nonperson 26-11-2019 09:03 PM

Oh my, I'm rather freaked out by Lindsay's TMI delivery man....!

I've just got back from physio and from going to collect a Tesco order that didn't exist... so yay.

chinahorse 26-11-2019 09:06 PM

As in you never made it?

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 09:07 PM

Turn the light on Lillie!!

Oh that's not good np!

nonperson 26-11-2019 09:16 PM

I did make it (but had to check multiple times that it wasn't my mistake) but Tesco never told me they couldn't pick it. >=(

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 09:22 PM

How ridiculous!

chinahorse 26-11-2019 09:24 PM

Oh grrrrr np!

nonperson 26-11-2019 09:28 PM

Oh well. =/

chinahorse 26-11-2019 09:31 PM

Suppose nothing you can do but still annoying.

I have now put the big light on and got a honeycomb hot chocolate.

nonperson 26-11-2019 09:34 PM


Tell me more about honeycomb hot chocolate! As in... where to buy it?!? =o

chinahorse 26-11-2019 09:38 PM

Its Options. I got it in morrisons for 2 quid for the jar.

nonperson 26-11-2019 09:40 PM

Oooh, don't think I've seen that one before.

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 09:42 PM

Ooo that sounds tasty!

I'm going to make a double choc mocha when they open up for supper. Which should be soon

chinahorse 26-11-2019 09:44 PM

Think it's their special atm?

I keep wanting to try those beckie.

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 09:48 PM

They are quite nice!
And one of the staff on tonight is making it special for me with hot milk

chinahorse 26-11-2019 09:49 PM

Oooo lush!

Not sure Bertie is such a fan of my hot choc. Hes scraping the carpet around the mug with his paw- like they doing the litter tray.

nonperson 26-11-2019 10:01 PM

Geordi does that with his food bowl. I think it's him trying to "hide" it because it's too good to share, not a hate thing!

Cacoethes 26-11-2019 10:25 PM

Awww cute!

chinahorse 26-11-2019 10:32 PM

Quote of the day:

I could trampoline nude and still not need a sports bra.
