     ARGH stupid doctors and hospitals and their staff! It's taken me about 20 minutes to find a phone number for the hospital, and when someone finally answered, it wasn't even the hospital! I said "Oh sorry is that blah blah hospital?", and she goes "which department do you want?" so I said I was just wondering if there was a...and she put me through to someone else. The phone started ringing again, and then I got an answering machine saying "Please leave your name and number, and the health board will get back to you". 

    Back to square 1!

     Done a retune LL? During a switchover you often have to retune your digital channels, no biggie just use the auto tune should take around 5 minutes. 
    Where is it saying HD is not supported? If it's an HD ready TV its 720p, it could be you're feeding it a 1080p source and it can't display it

    Actually because of temperatures warming, and more snow melting, the Golf Stream has been getting weaker and weaker as result. And therefor Europe may be facing small ice age soon. And another thing is, that we may be in ice age soon - I think there was a small ice age during 14 or 15th centuries. In the past there were period when it was even warmer than today, during the interglacials periods. And generally interglacials periods are warmest towards the end and generally last about 10 to 20 thousands years. So we may actually be nearing the end of ours

    In the elizabethan period the river Thames nearly dried up and later I think in the 1800s it ws so low it lead to the big stink. ... from  that comes Londons sewers......every cloud has a sewer full of..cr&p

    I am suffering from burn out, thanks to work. I get home, I stare at the wall, for a hour or 2, not caring about food or drink, just feeling completely tired and cannot bring myself to care about something

    My cystitus came back the day before I'm due to go home for graduation.  Not fun when tomorrow will involve lots of sitting on a train.  :(  There wasn't time to go see the Dr this afternoon because I'd already committed myself to attending a seminar that turned out to be not worth it at all, and I probably won't have time to go in the morning as an emergency either.  So annoying.

    *Hugs* I hope you can find some time to look after yourself soon. I know it's hard, but working yourself in to a breakdown would be worse!

    Thank you *hug back* how have you been?

    I will try to get some time off, but it is hard, between work and university, doing PhD to get even a week off. Unfortunately.

     Laveila, please look after yourself, lovely :/ Sounds like you're working yourself really hard right now.

    I have so much bloody work on at the moment. I had a colloquial speaking test today (which, to be fair, went better than I expected), but tomorrow I have a written MSA exam that I am utterly unprepared for, and I really want to do well in. I also have a university deadline for Friday that's worth 15% of my mark for this year, and I had the assignment three-quarters finished last night (slogging steadily at it took me hours), and then my computer decided to restart and I lost everything so I have to literally start from scratch. Then I have to finish another bit of work before the 12th.

    Add into this that between three girls in this flat (all of whom need to get these assignments done), there is one internet cable. The landlord is an utter pig who, despite promising us internet, is now making us pay for everything ourselves. We went and bought a WiFi router today, to make things easier, got it back and it doesn't bloody work, so we lost four hours (I don't understand how everything takes so bloody long to accomplish here) of revision time to buying a sodding router, only to find out we have to do it all again tomorrow.

    I'm so pissed off and homesick. I know everyone says that your year abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime thing, but I am bloody grateful for that. The only thing that gets me through most days in this God-forsaken city is the thought that I'm leaving it for a bit next month...

    I am so annoyed, I think no one was in when the postman knocked today so he took my parcels to the 'nearest' delivery office - which is an hour's walk from where I live! They call that local?! I have to wait 48hours before collecting as well which means I now won't get them till Tuesday because I'll be busy and have uni on Monday :/ I am so so angry, I was looking forward to these for a few days now. Stupid Royal Mail
