Yeah it is!
I'm sure they will make more. Will make us wait another year though probably!

Sketchy 11-06-2017 03:59 PM

I'll need to find other things to watch soon on Netflix.

I'm waiting for the rain to stop so I can go to the shop. What you up to?

Sketchy 11-06-2017 04:12 PM

The rain has stopped. I'm off to the shop.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 04:12 PM

I'm on episode 10 now.
I'll probably go back to game of thrones after ive finished OITNB.

cant believe its raining where you are! Its so sunny here.
I like the rain though.

Im just watching OITNB. Been to asda already.
Ive got the clozapine clinic tomorrow which is good because i need to do something and get out of the house

Shy_Bambi 11-06-2017 04:14 PM

I've always wanted to watch Game of thrones but we can't afford digital tv! Boo!!

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 04:20 PM

I downloaded it online.
I'd LOVE to be able to afford sky or whatever.
The box set is expensive too. Its like 45!

Ha ha if you were concerned by naked people in OITNB you'd definitely find game of thrones interesting :P

I've been asleep most of the day don't know why was just so tired.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 04:44 PM

Ah yeah i was going to mention that.
GoT is basically porn in some places!

Sometimes we just need the sleep katy! And its sunday. Day of rest and everything!

Sketchy 11-06-2017 04:55 PM

I'm back from the shop. I had to move fast because it started to rain again. It's a miserable day up here.

Katy, you can't help feeling tired. Just take it easy and enjoy a relaxing Sunday.

I'm lying down trying to cool down before I go and paint.

Buttons. 11-06-2017 04:56 PM

Fair point :)

Buttons. 11-06-2017 04:57 PM

Well done on avoiding the weather Lorraine!

Sketchy 11-06-2017 05:00 PM

What everyone's plans for the rest of the day?

I'm going to rest for a wee bit, then paint. I will definitely be watching some orange is the new black later. Tempted to watch it now, but then I'll never get my paintings done.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 05:00 PM

At least you can stay in now Lorraine.
Well done for getting out!

Are you up to much now katy?
(Katy autocorrected to Matt for some reason) :/

Buttons. 11-06-2017 05:13 PM

That's weird!

Just catching up on Mock the week and fuming a bit at the support worker who just left. How about you?

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 05:16 PM

Mock the week is always good!
What did they do?

Im just watching oitnb and trying not to feel guilty that i barely did anything today!

Sketchy 11-06-2017 05:16 PM

You ok Katy? Want to talk about it?

Sketchy 11-06-2017 05:17 PM

Don't feel guilty Beckie. You had a busy day yesterday and like you say it's Sunday. Sundays are supposed to be lazy.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 05:21 PM

Thanks Lorraine. That's true

Buttons. 11-06-2017 05:24 PM

She came in whinging as per, went straight on her phone and ignored me as per, then when I woke up she hadn't helped me out with any of the house stuff she's supposed to as I can't stand or walk atm despite me asking her, then she whinges some more, says something really horrible then ****s off home.


In other news, if you were a pen, in the vacinity of a sofa and hiding, where would you be? :P #takeabreak puzzle issues.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 05:27 PM

Ugh that is awful!! I knew staff like that in hospital. Mostly agency staff.
One of them was meant to be on my 1-1 and she stood there the whole time video snapchatting and taking selfies and texting and its like...wtf.

I would guess hidden down the sofa cushions! That's where all mine go!

Sketchy 11-06-2017 05:28 PM

She sounds a nightmare and not very helpful. Do you think you could talk about it with her to get it resolved?

If I were a pen I'd be hiding under the sofa.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 05:33 PM

I agree with Lorraine. You should talk to her or someone

Buttons. 11-06-2017 05:36 PM

Oh my days Beckie can't believe the snapchatting and shiz!! Mine mainly plays some stupid game. Tbh I'm too tired to keep trying to resolve things with her, they were going to reduce her hours with me a lot but then person replacing her (legend of a sw who I really like) has broken her ankle so they have no one experienced enough with enough free hours to put it into action. So here we are.

Yeah I've tried sofa cushion and as far as I can reach under the sofa (which isn't v far tbf) otherwise is a mystery. Luckily next time I have to get in wheelchair and move I know my mum bought me a giant pack of biros which should be on the coffee table that's been put out of the way for now somewhere as I was driving her mad moaning about losing pens :P so there will be another one somewhere.

Buttons. 11-06-2017 05:44 PM

I still love that after everything I've done/not done that's what nearly pushed mum over the edge, pen losing :P she stormed off to a poundland (if you can storm off to a poundland :P) and bought be the biggest pack of pens known to man :P

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 05:46 PM

You should get onto them again. When you feel up to it.
You shouldn't have to deal with that crap! They are paid to do a job and they should do it otherwise they shouldn't get paid for it!
Not only that, playing on your phone when you're with someone is just plain rude!!!

I bought a big pack of pens recently and i have like 2 left. I think there is a pen black hole in my house

Ahaha! Your mum is amazing! :p

Buttons. 11-06-2017 05:56 PM

Yeah the phone playing thing drives me up the wall when anyone does it. It is so rude. She also tends to leave an hour or so early to pick her son up because he has autism. I swear half her vocabulary is made up of well I have my shop to run as well! or well my son has autism. *stops whinging*

Ha ha yes my mum is a legend :P I have yet to confess to her I have already lost about half that pack. Totally agree re pen black hole. Same with lighters.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 06:28 PM

If the job doesn't fit around her life then she should get another flipping job!!!
Ugh. Ridiculous!

Haha! Yep with the lighters too!
Although i have about 6 broken lighters in the bowl that all the random crap goes in.

Just had dinner. I tried a roasted onion instant mash and it was much more oniony than i expended!
The mix literally smelled like a bag of cheese and onion crisps.

Buttons. 11-06-2017 06:37 PM

I agree with you Beckie. I sympathise but as you said if you can't fit your job in with your life then the thing to do is not to guilt trip the person you're supporting but to get a different job.

I FOUND MY PEN *falls over*

That mash sounds...interesting? Did you enjoy or was it too over the top?

Is it THAT bad xD

Buttons. 11-06-2017 06:58 PM

Ha ha it really is.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 07:00 PM

Yep the guilt tripping is totally wrong!! Like it's your fault!

Yay!! Where was it katy?!

The mash wasn't horrible but i wouldn't have it again.
There was no regular mash left so i had no choice!

Yes Rebecca, it is that bad!!!
Like literally could be mistaken for porn in some parts!

Buttons. 11-06-2017 07:14 PM

Exactly, and I think I've been more understanding than some would have been as I've worked with people with autism and those around them, but there is a limit.

Yeah the mash doesn't sound like something I'd be overly fond of either.

The porn thing is no exaggeration, I remember being proper paranoid that one day someone like my CPN or somebody would come round and I'd have paused at a really really dodgy moment :P

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 07:20 PM

I get paranoid about it too katy!!
I close half my curtains so people walking past can't look in and think im watching porn while im watching game of thrones.
And i always make sure to pause it in a non dodgy place when the carer comes!

Shy_Bambi 11-06-2017 07:23 PM

Oh wow that's some hardcore sounding stuff right thar xD

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 07:25 PM

Oh it really is!!!

Im on the last episode of OITNB.
Im sad it's nearly over!!

Buttons. 11-06-2017 07:43 PM

Because closing all the curtains looks less dodgy Bex :P

It's always sad when a good series comes to an end. But imptorant thing to remember...Netflix now has Jumanji.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 07:44 PM

Not ALL the curtains. Just half :p

That is true!!

Buttons. 11-06-2017 08:01 PM

Well half makes it all better :P

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 08:04 PM

Totally does :p

Buttons. 11-06-2017 08:29 PM

Complete change of topic just flipping through channels and found yet another elephant programme (yes I'm tad obsessed with elephants) and I still maintain no matter how down a person is, watching a baby elephant is the cure :P

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 08:38 PM

Baby elephants are adorable!
My family visited an elephant sanctuary in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago and i was so jealous!!

I went to a turtle sanctuary in i think it was Corsica. Baby turtles are also very cute!!

Buttons. 11-06-2017 08:42 PM

Jealous of both your family elephant visit and you with the turtles! Not quite as jealous as of my friend who went back packing round the world and worked for month or so at an elephant baby sanctuary where you basically adopt one as your child sleep next to it, bond with it, feed it, play with it, and (amongst the herd they've got) basically teach it to be an elephant so can be released.

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 08:44 PM

Omg that sounds amazing!! Major jealously!

Id love to go backpacking around the world!

Shy_Bambi 11-06-2017 08:46 PM

Wow you guys have some amazing stories and experiences!!! Then I'm over here like all I have is yeah guys I once rescued a baby Starling from next doors cat xD

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 08:47 PM

Im sure it was amazing to the starling you rescued!!

Buttons. 11-06-2017 09:22 PM

Cacoethes 11-06-2017 09:31 PM

I am sleepy!
Will probs go to bed in a bit.
Hopefully I'll actually wake up to my alarm tomorrow!

not_so_insig 12-06-2017 10:07 AM

I am awake because my next door neighbour is having a new door fitted (the council decided that because of health and safety we should all have fireproof doors) & the workmen are using power tools. So it woke me up because they were dead near my bedroom and there was no way that I could sleep through the noise.

Cacoethes 12-06-2017 10:50 AM

Thats annoying dawn.
At least it's not too early!!

Got to leave for clozapine clinic in a bit.
It looks chilly outside!

not_so_insig 12-06-2017 01:08 PM

I am knackered. I hope that clozapine clinic went ok for you Beckie.
