I find it exhausting too.

Curly wurly brownies sound yummy.

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 03:08 PM

Brownies are nom, so therefore not cake :tongue2:

Apricot and dark chocolate go really well together.

You should definitely get yourself a little treat, shopping at this time of year is hard work!


Serendipity. 02-01-2017 03:25 PM

You definitely deserve a treat Lorraine!!

Brownies are amazing but apricot is vile!

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 03:45 PM

Hey Hannah, how are you?

Serendipity. 02-01-2017 03:48 PM

I'm okay thanks, how are you Amy?

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 03:56 PM

I'm good thanks just getting all the dogs things together as mums coming over soon to pick him up.

You up to much today?

Serendipity. 02-01-2017 04:12 PM

Aw, will you be sad when your mum picks him up? I'm always sad to leave my dog behind haha.

Not really, been at work, should be tidying but am not, going to the cinema tonight. How about you?

Sketchy 02-01-2017 04:14 PM

Cinema sounds good Hannah. What are you going to see?
I'm back from the shops. I didn't get myself a treat after all.

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 04:24 PM

Hey guys!

Cinema sounds good. I love the cinema! I really really want to see the assassins creed movie as I am slightly obsessed with the video games!

I'm back from the shops too. Will start baking soon :)

Serendipity. 02-01-2017 04:26 PM

Yay for baking Beckie!!

That's a shame Lorraine! What's your plan for the rest of the day?

I'm going to see Passengers. I want to see that too Beckie even though I don't do video games! :P

Sketchy 02-01-2017 04:30 PM

I really should be doing housework but can't be bothered.

Serendipity. 02-01-2017 04:33 PM

Me too!!

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 04:41 PM

Hope you enjoy the cinema!

That reminds me I need to apply for a disability cinema card.

Doggy has gone but am sure I'll see him again soon.

Buttons. 02-01-2017 04:42 PM

Hope you enjoy the cinema :) I love it, although am a tad addicted to their hotdogs which are so expensive!! How did film go?

I just shortly got back from parents' Mum had made meat and potato pie (nom nom nom!!) and now just watching a bit of Sister Act while chillaxing.

Buttons. 02-01-2017 04:42 PM

I need to do the same Ames re disabled cinema card!

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 05:04 PM

Brownies are in the oven. Hope they turn out ok! The mix tasted good anyway! Should make up for the fact that I forgot to buy fruit today.

Sister Act is a good film!
I'm watching Percy Jackson: sea of monsters

Serendipity. 02-01-2017 05:08 PM

Sounds nice Katy!

Make sure you share the brownies with us Beckie! :P

I'm watching Sleepy Hollow on Amazon Prime. It's quite enjoyable! Someone make me go and tidy?!

Buttons. 02-01-2017 05:11 PM

I agree re please donate brownies our way!!!!

Sounds like everyone enjoying their selves re watching stuff and chilling-always an epic plan!

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 05:23 PM

I don't think the brownies are going to last that long :p

Chilling is always a good plan!

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 05:28 PM

Good recipe then I take it Bex?


Sketchy 02-01-2017 05:30 PM

I'm finally getting up to do some housework. I'll put music on to keep me motivated.

Sketchy 02-01-2017 05:31 PM

Also, I would happily try your brownies.

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 05:44 PM

Well done for motivating yourself!!

I need to have a shower then go shops, but ugh effort.

Serendipity. 02-01-2017 06:03 PM

Well done Lorraine!

Go Amy go!

*steals all the brownies*

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 06:14 PM

Shower is done, wahey.

Tidy Hannah tidy!

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 06:32 PM

There aren't many brownies left :p
It was a good recipe!

Well done Lorraine!

Yay amy! Best to get it over and done with!

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 07:04 PM

Yay for nommy brownies!

I'm planning fun things to do this year with my friend when she gets discharged from rehab. Tis exciting, I found this place in wales called zipworld that looks completely epic!

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 07:10 PM

That sounds cool amy!!!

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 07:21 PM

It sure looks it, it's got the longest zip wire in europe!

It has other stuff to like tree top nets and this underground bounce thing among other stuff.

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 07:32 PM

That sounds awesome!
I'd love to go to one of those places.

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 07:36 PM

Lets go on a road trip!
Although small problem neither of us drive.....

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 07:38 PM

That would be awesome!
But yeah, the neither of us driving thing could present a problem :p

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 07:40 PM

You distract the driver with your brownies, and we'll steal the car.
Who can resist a brownie or two?!
It's a solid plan!

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 07:42 PM

That sounds like a great plan!
Although I don't know how to drive a car :p
I'll be able to start lessons soon though!!

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 07:46 PM

Hmm maybe there was a flaw in the plan. Doh!

How exciting for you!!
I'm hoping to start lessons this year too :-)


Sketchy 02-01-2017 07:53 PM

I can't drive either. I would be scared because I'm so clumsy.

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 07:58 PM

Haha, a very slight flaw :p

I am so excited! I wasn't allowed a licence when I was 17 because of mentals. Then I finally was allowed a licence at 21 then started having seizures!! I have been waiting for this for sooo long!!

Driving isn't for everyone it seems! If you live in an area with good public transport and everything around you then I guess it's not so important to drive

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 07:59 PM

I'm anxious about learning, but there is a women instructor in my area who specializes in teaching people who have anxiety problems and learning difficulties. So am going to see when I can get booked in with her.

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 08:00 PM

You must be very eager to get behind the wheel Bex!

Sketchy 02-01-2017 08:05 PM

Good luck to you both with that.

I live in an area with plenty of buses and trains that are regular and some all night, so I guess I'm lucky.

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 08:16 PM

Buses confuse me so much! The amount of times I've got lost in my own town is unbelievable *facepalm*


Sketchy 02-01-2017 08:21 PM

I prefer trains to buses. They seem less chaotic, well the ones where I live are.

Sketchy 02-01-2017 08:21 PM

That's impressive getting lost in your own town. Oh dear.

Wonderland. 02-01-2017 08:25 PM

Yep, I just can't master the simple art of busing unfortunately. Love trains though!

Cacoethes 02-01-2017 09:12 PM

I am sooo looking forward to driving lessons!!
Not that I'll be able to afford a car anytime soon!

Buses round here are pretty simple. There's only one bus that goes to the next big town so it's very hard to mess that up, well, there's two but one is quicker but only goes every hour. There are a couple of other buses that go to other places, like some surrounding villages, but I've never had to use those ones and probably never will!

I go through phases of preference between buses and trains. I quite like my bus route because my usual destination is the very last stop so I can zone out a bit!
I'm in a bus phase at the moment!

Serendipity. 03-01-2017 12:20 PM

Morning everyone! How are you all today?

I love trains! Travelling by train is one of my favourite things, and train stations are my happy places! :D

Buttons. 03-01-2017 01:23 PM

^ Have to confess I'm the complete opposite, train stations are one of my scariest places!!!

Cacoethes 03-01-2017 02:12 PM

Hello Hannah and Katy!

I don't mind train stations. But only if they have coffee shops!!
Mine has a coffee shop on the platform but it only seems to be open at morning peak times.
I think there's another one just outside the station that's open all day but I have yet to go.in!
No toilets at the station though which is annoying!

I've just come back from a delightful GP appointment and now watching legally blonde!

Serendipity. 03-01-2017 06:49 PM

I hope your GP appointment was really delightful Beckie! Legally blonde is awesome, I need to watch that again!

Yeah I don't like little train stations much, I love the big ones though!

Cacoethes 03-01-2017 06:57 PM

It was slightly worrying but me and my GP always have a laugh no matter what the problem is!

Yes the big ones can be fun with all the coffee shops and little newsagents and stuff. And St Pancras with all the awesome shops and a really nice pastry shop. And Kings Cross has some good food places.

I'm watching Forrest Gump now. I haven't seen this film in years. So good!
