Et it was nice to be back in your own bed :)

I'm so sleepy still. But I have to get up and going soon.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 07:50 AM

I'm sorry you're sleepy lovely Lillie, what's on the agenda today?

chinahorse 22-03-2017 08:18 AM

Today is firm, work group, individual, lunch, group and teas then dinner then bed. I did want to go into town but I have no time.

What about yourself?

[Luna] 22-03-2017 08:26 AM

Sounds very busy, I hope it all goes well.

I've got to go to the GP surgery, have a blood test, I have managing emotions group this afternoon and slimming world tonight.

chinahorse 22-03-2017 08:48 AM

It's a relatively quiet day lol.

Do you find slimming world enjoyable?

[Luna] 22-03-2017 09:59 AM

Yeah, I get on well with the plan and the group are really friendly and supportive.

Just at the hospital waiting to be bled. It's so wet and miserable outside :(

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 10:13 AM

In Wales you can use your bus pass any time. I have used it before 9.30 am. What annoys me is that you can't use it for English buses. I mean you don't suddenly become not disabled because you're in a different country.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 10:21 AM

I find it really annoying that I can't use my freedom pass before 9.30am. Why is there a time restriction on it. I can only use my pass in London.
Can be frustrating because, like you said, your needs don't change just because you're in a different location.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 10:24 AM

However freedom passes are like gold dust nowadays so I'm incredibly grateful to have one!

chinahorse 22-03-2017 10:37 AM

I'm insanely jealous of people with bus passes.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 10:51 AM

Do they not do any sort of passes you'd qualify for where you live Lillie?

chinahorse 22-03-2017 10:55 AM

I don't qualify for them and then in the week I'm in richmond so it'd be useless.

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 11:12 AM

Morning guys.
Didn't have to go to appointment because it was cancelled. I'm very very grateful they text me at some point before I got up because I would have been LIVID if I got all the way there to find out it was cancelled!
It's all wet and miserable outside.

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 11:25 AM

I am waiting for the postman because I have a parcel coming. I wish he would hurry up!

[Luna] 22-03-2017 11:29 AM

It is very wet :(

I hope the postman doesn't take too long!

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 11:32 AM

He could be here any time in the next hour. Annoyingly I can't go out because I am waiting for my amazon delivery too and possibly my replacement nurse is coming later.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 11:35 AM

That's annoying love.

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 11:38 AM

Yes I just got excited because there was a knock on the door. Sadly it was the meter readings man.

chinahorse 22-03-2017 11:39 AM

That's good beckie.

Oh how annoying dawn.

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 11:43 AM

I feel quite stressed now at the thought of seeing people today. I could do with hiding away.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 11:49 AM

Perhaps a day in wouldn't be such a bad thing then? Could you do something creative or watch a film/

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 11:50 AM

I hate waiting around for parcels!
I pretty much stare out of the window all day when it says it out for delivery!!

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 12:00 PM

Yay! The postman came. I have 2 items out of the 4 I ordered.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 12:02 PM

Yay, get anything exciting?

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 12:04 PM

Only a dvd of Heartbeat Series 1 and a dvd of The Railway Children (the 1960s version - I already have the two later versions).

[Luna] 22-03-2017 12:05 PM

Ah, fun. I hope you enjoy them :)

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 12:09 PM

The heartbeat dvd has a Keeping Up Appearances cast member in it hence why I wanted it. I had an amazon voucher so it cost me less than 2 for the 2 dvds and a book.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 12:12 PM

Really? Who is it? I do like Keeping up appearances

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 12:14 PM

Shirley Stelfox who played the first Rose and later Edna in Emmerdale. Malcolm Hebden ( Norris Cole in Coronation Street ) is in this series too.

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 12:16 PM

I have had a phone call to say that my new glasses are ready.

[Luna] 22-03-2017 12:18 PM

Oh yeah I know her. I have to say I preferred the later Rose though.
I haven't watched Emmerdale or Coronation street since my nan died 10 years ago. She loved all the soaps, apart from Hollyoaks which is the only one I watch now.

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 12:18 PM

I need to go to asda later but it's so cold and rainy!!!

[Luna] 22-03-2017 12:21 PM

that sucks Beckie :(
I have to go back out later for Managing emotions group so I feel your pain!

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 12:21 PM

Clive Swift (Richard Bucket ), Geoffrey Hughes (Onslow), Judy Cornwell (Daisy) & Josephine Tewson (Liz) have all appeared in Heartbeat. I have them all bar the series with Josephine Tewson in.

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 12:27 PM

Ah that sucks Luna!!
With weather like this it should really be a duvet day! :p

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 12:30 PM

It's a lovely day here!

Buttons. 22-03-2017 12:34 PM

It's cold and rainy here as well-not impressed.

Oh I loved the Railway children film but haven't seen in ages, must try and find out which version I liked and purchase it. I finally got a copy of the Anne of Greengables film that I love the other day-brought back happy memories watching it.

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 12:39 PM

I think I remember watching the railway children on video many years ago.
I wasn't too impressed with it tbh!

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 12:42 PM

I love The Railway Children however I tried reading the book and got bored!

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 01:16 PM

My amazon parcel has arrived. less than two minutes later I had another knock on the door and the parcel man was there. Sadly there's nothing interesting but lightbulbs in my non amazon parcel. Seems the world and his wife want to disturb me today.

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 02:00 PM

I saw my neighbour whilst going to the bin.

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 02:01 PM

That's good dawn.

It's stopped raining (for now!) So I'm going to take the opportunity and go to asda now before the rain starts again!
Also random but my hands are not cooperating so it's taken forever to type this!

Sketchy 22-03-2017 04:50 PM

Good afternoon all.

I'm in the coffee shop waiting for my dad.

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 05:02 PM

Hi Lorraine!
That sounds good!

Sketchy 22-03-2017 05:03 PM

Hi Beckie. How are you?

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 05:06 PM

I'm ok thanks!
Just watching a film.
It's gone quite sunny and warmish now :)

Sketchy 22-03-2017 05:08 PM

It's not bad here either, but a bit cold.

Cacoethes 22-03-2017 05:14 PM

At least the rain stopped eventually!

not_so_insig 22-03-2017 05:58 PM

I had a visit from my nurse and I have washed my hair.

chinahorse 22-03-2017 06:16 PM

Well done dawn.
