Good morning Buttons :)

Buttons. 29-03-2017 09:44 AM

hey :) (you can call me Katy if you want :) ) any plans for today?

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 09:48 AM

Oh, thank you :) you can call me Rebecca if you want too :3 I have a hospital appointment today. Not looking forward to going though. How about you?

chinahorse 29-03-2017 09:51 AM

Hope it goes ok Rebecca. :)

I GET TO SEE BEAUTY AND TGE BEAST TODAY. I'm using it as a reward for therapy even though wed be going anyway. And we are going to prezzo after.

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 09:53 AM

Oh that sounds fun! I've heard that it's really good. I hope you enjoy it!

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 09:54 AM

I hope your appointment goes okay Rebecca. :)

That is an excellent reward Lillie! I've seen it and it is AMAZING! I hope you have a lovely time :)

Buttons. 29-03-2017 10:01 AM

Thanks Rebecca :) hope the hospital appointment goes okay.

Lillie I am SO JEALOUS. I promised to see it with my friend when she gets back off holiday and the wait is killing me :P

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 10:02 AM

Emma watson is such a good actress

Buttons. 29-03-2017 10:14 AM

She really is. Seems like a nice person as well.

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 10:22 AM

I wish ryl was an app too. It would make it easier to be here on a phone. I'm usually on my phone here.

not_so_insig 29-03-2017 11:07 AM

I am on my phone and I find ryl one of the easiest sites to use. The only issue seems to be chat because you need a specific browser but I don't use it anyway.

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 11:23 AM

To be honest this is the only site I use on my phone. I just have to keep zooming in and out on everything all the time because the text is so small
Still love the site tho.

chinahorse 29-03-2017 11:23 AM

I'm on my phone too. The hospital has no wifi. :(

Ah Katy I shall tell you if the wait is worth it!

Gargh such a bad pain and cotton wool head day.

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 11:42 AM

I hope things are okay, Chinahorse. I'm just leaving to go to the hospital myself. Hospitals should have WiFi, because you're always just waiting around.

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 11:50 AM

Hey everyone :)

[Luna] 29-03-2017 12:00 PM

Hey again, how are you all? I went back to bed for a couple of hours and feel more human now.

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 12:02 PM

Hello Luna! I'm just getting on the bus to the hospital. Do you have any plans for the day?

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 12:03 PM

Oh hello Cacoethes! I hope you're doing well.

[Luna] 29-03-2017 12:05 PM

Hey Rebecca, I've got an assignment to start then need to go the shops and slimming world tonight. Hope it goes well at the hospital.

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 12:09 PM

Hope hospital goes ok!

Busy day Luna! Sounds like you needed that extra bit of sleep!

[Luna] 29-03-2017 12:10 PM

How are you doing Beckie?

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 12:18 PM

I'm ok thanks my dear!
Had a surprise visit from cc and psych but all is well kind of!! He was a bit strange but tbh I've never met a psych that wasn't a bit odd :p

[Luna] 29-03-2017 12:20 PM

Are they putting anything in place for you? You're right, most psychs are strange! Are you up to much today?

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 12:40 PM

Not really! It was a rather brief appointment.
Chels is going to call my cc later to see what's what!
No plans for today! Asda as usual and I'll go for a walk and play on the wii fit.
Atm I am waiting for The Bill to come on :p

[Luna] 29-03-2017 12:42 PM

I'm glad you've got Chels helping you out. I hope you enjoy your walk/playing on the wii fit.

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 01:12 PM

Yeah she's been great!
Thanks!

What's your assignment on Luna?

[Luna] 29-03-2017 01:19 PM

The first part is a research activity. It's so long-winded and my concentration is really bad today. Really want to give up and go back to the playing Pokémon gold but going to try and stick it out for as long as possible then pay a pokemon as a reward before I go to the shops.

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 01:27 PM

That sounds like a plan Luna. Can you try and give yourself regular breaks and mini-rewards, even if it's just a cup of tea? I hope it's going okay :)

Beckie, I hope they sort something out for you! I agree with you on the psychiatrist front, they all seem to be a bit odd :P

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 01:36 PM

Sounds like a good plan Luna!
Research activities suck tbh!
And Hannah has some good ideas!

Hello there Hannah!
Yeah it was weird like he suggested carers come in twice a day for meds stuff and now I feel like an old person!
Might as well get one of those life alert things and the alarm thing at the bottom of the stairs :p

It's so weird isn't it? I find that every profession has their little quirks!
My cc was telling me she had an IT guy sort her computer and she was being her normal scatty self and the IT guy was like, yep, you're a social worker :p

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 01:40 PM

Haha! Are you managing your meds okay? If you're not it isn't that weird :P

Lol, my CC is also a social worker and I imagine she could relate :P I want to be a social worker, not sure what that says about me haha.

My current psych seems relatively normal. And nice. It's a bit suspicious really!

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 01:50 PM

I am but they think i'm not which is annoying! I can't convince them otherwise! I do have more meds than I should but that was accidental and I don't have any of some of my meds because I'm due to get more from the pharmacy this week but they did not accept my reasons!!

Haha!
Well, are you naturally disorganised? If so, then you're halfway there :p

Hmm, that is suspicious!

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 01:54 PM

Well I'm afraid I may be on the side of your team on this one, but I shall keep my mouth shut :P

I am a weird combination of incredibly disorganised in my personal life and super organised at work! I'm good at organising other people too, though my mum has taken to telling me I'm a bully :P

It is, isn't it?!

What are you up to Beckie? I'm bored. Bored bored bored. And lonely.

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 01:58 PM

No one ever takes my side!! Literally no one!! :p

Well you're probably the right amount of disorganised!
I was pretty organised when I was working but I couldn't organise other people!
When they put me in charge of a floor I was like....wat....

I'm watching The Bill. Need to go to asda.
I am also incredibly bored and lonely!
But doing stuff and seeing people costs money because I have literally no friends in the local area, I would have to get a train!

[Luna] 29-03-2017 02:03 PM

Sorry you're both bored and lonely :( Talk here! I just got told to go back to bed. I had a quick skype session with my therapist and got ordered to have another nap. I'm not too tired though.

I've had a cuppa and listening to a bit of Emilie autumn.

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 02:04 PM

Wellll I gotta say it, maybe there's a reason for that and you should start listening to people! :P You should listen to me. I am always right!

Go to Asda! Although I guess you've now just missed your 1pm slot :P 2pm then?! (Yeah, I'm a stalker, soz).

I know the feeling!! Although I have money (I think! :S) and enjoy trains, so it's more that everyone else is too busy having a life to entertain me!

I'm going to take myself to Costa!

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 02:05 PM

Cuppa and Emilie Autumn is always good!! If you can't manage a nap maybe just some time chilling out?

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 02:06 PM

Are you going to nap? Not much point if you're not that tired though I suppose!

Sounds good! I was gonna watch NCIS but I've seen this one so off to asda I go!!

[Luna] 29-03-2017 02:10 PM

Jesus Christ I've only just seen what time it is!!! I swear I've misplaced an hour. So confused.
Need to get my butt in gear and get ready to go to the shops.
Have fun at Asda Beckie and listen to Hannah, she is wise.

What are you up to Hannah?

not_so_insig 29-03-2017 02:18 PM

I have been swimming today. Slightly disappointed that my prescription goggles haven't arrived. My mail consisted of a youview box, a book and a ballot paper. Oh and a b&q leaflet which is about as useful as a chocolate teapot because I have no garden.

[Luna] 29-03-2017 02:19 PM

Did you enjoy the swim despite the lack of goggles?

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 02:22 PM

Have fun at the shops Luna!

Sounds more exciting than my post dawn :P something i ordered tried to arrive but I missed it due to being out. Sad times.

[Luna] 29-03-2017 02:24 PM

Oh no, I hate when that happens. Sometimes I'm convinced the postman doesn't even knock and just puts an attempted delivery card through the door.

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 02:43 PM

Hi all. I'm in the waiting room at the hospital for a few mins and thought I'd pop in. I know what you mean, I don't think the postman knocks all the time either. I hope you enjoyed your swim, not_so_insig! :)

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 02:45 PM

By the way, I love your Sig Cacoethes. Makes me smile.

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 02:45 PM

Luna, maybe your postman has social anxiety :P

Hope your appointment goes well Rebecca!

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 02:57 PM

Hope the appointment goes ok!!

Im back from asda and suddenly feeling very unwell! Very strange!
I'm watching beauty and the beast, the cartoon one.
Really want to see the new one!

[Luna] 29-03-2017 02:58 PM

He may well have Hannah but it's very inconvenient for me :P

Oh no Beckie, what's up love?

not_so_insig 29-03-2017 03:01 PM

I did enjoy my swim.

I had that problem with the postman but 3 of my neighbours said that they would take in my parcels so I have a note on my door. However some people try ringing my doorbell which has never worked since I moved here so I had to write another note saying that the bell doesn't work.

I have managed to set up my youview box. It's working but the annoying thing is that the same remote also works on my freesat box so instead of turning the youview box off it turned the freesat box off!

Cacoethes 29-03-2017 03:05 PM

Just feel very tired all of a sudden and major headache!!
Taken neurofen so hopefully that kicks in soon!

If I get anything from amazon they put it in my outside cupboard which is good.
And the post office is a 10 minute walk away so I can easily collect parcels which is handy!
Not like in my last house where the post office depot was about a 40 minute walk and hidden in an industrial estate!

[Luna] 29-03-2017 03:07 PM

That doesn't sound nice Beckie. I hope the painkillers kick in soon.
That's good about the post office depot. Ours is a ten minute walk but theres always a huge queue.

I really need to stop getting distracted and go to the shops.
