Hi Lorraine!
Hope you get on ok with your housework. Not the most fun thing to do but has to be done!

I got it back thanks. It was all still warm from the tumble dryer and smells lovely!

Sketchy 21-12-2016 06:36 PM

Glad you got your washing. One less thing to worry about.

Cacoethes 21-12-2016 06:43 PM

Thanks. It definitely is!
At least now I've got clean clothes for a while now.
Will be able to get a new washing machine in the new year as my mum is lending me the money for one. :)

Sketchy 21-12-2016 07:00 PM

That's good of your mum. I know how stressful it is not having one. When mine broke I was so annoyed and grateful to have a new one.

Cacoethes 21-12-2016 07:07 PM

Yes its very good of her. She knows there is no way I'd be able to afford one myself. I can pay her back in installments which will be helpful.
It is very stressful. You never really appreciate your washing machine properly until you don't have it!
I can't wait to get a new one

Serendipity. 21-12-2016 07:12 PM

Oh that's good Beckie, I'm glad you can get a new washing machine! I hope you have fun on your date tonight! :D

Sketchy 21-12-2016 07:13 PM

I know. I was lucky having my sister live so close to me. At least you know there is that same place you got your laundry done today you can use. I hope you get a new one soon though.

Voldemort 21-12-2016 08:37 PM

Evening all.

Serendipity. 21-12-2016 08:52 PM

Hello! How are we all this evening?

Voldemort 21-12-2016 09:25 PM

Hannah! How are you?

Sketchy 21-12-2016 09:33 PM

Hello Hannah and Amy.

Voldemort 21-12-2016 09:43 PM

How are you, Lorraine?

Serendipity. 21-12-2016 09:43 PM

Hi Lorraine! Hi Amy! I'm good thank you :) How are you both?

Sketchy 21-12-2016 09:46 PM

I'm low but that's not for this thread.

How are you?

It's freezing today. I got caught in rain and hail stones today. I'm still freezing.

Sketchy 21-12-2016 09:46 PM

How are you both?

Voldemort 21-12-2016 09:54 PM

I hope you warm up soon. If you want to pm, feel free.

Sketchy 21-12-2016 09:55 PM

Thanks Amy. I'll be fine. Just lying in bed trying to ride it out.

I've got my heating on so hopefully I'll soon heat up. What you up to? Watching house?

Voldemort 21-12-2016 10:08 PM

Aye. I am indeed. Are you watching anything?

Sketchy 21-12-2016 10:19 PM

No. I can't think what to watch. I think I just want silence. I might read for a bit before I go to sleep.

Voldemort 21-12-2016 10:25 PM

That sounds like a good idea. I hope you feel better soon.

Sketchy 21-12-2016 10:27 PM

Thanks Amy.

Voldemort 21-12-2016 10:28 PM

I'm waiting on meds so I can sleep. There's a new woman in my room and she's really annoying. I hope she lets us sleep tonight.

Sketchy 21-12-2016 11:02 PM

I hope the woman doesn't bug you and that you get a good nights sleep.

Cacoethes 21-12-2016 11:48 PM

Evening guys.

Hope you've warmed up now Lorraine!

Hopefully the meds will help you sleep through the noise amy. It's horrible having a noisy roommate in hospital. They usually settle down though.

I had a good time on my date :)

Serendipity. 21-12-2016 11:54 PM

Hope you all sleep well!

Glad you had a good time Beckie! Who won?!

Cacoethes 22-12-2016 12:21 AM

He won....but we are going to arrange a rematch! I blame the fact I had a stomach ache and also a couple of beers :p

Off to bed now. Thought I had clozapine clinic tomorrow but it's actually on Friday so yay for lie in tomorrow!

Good night guys. Sleep well!

Buttons. 22-12-2016 07:33 AM

Early morning all!

Serendipity. 22-12-2016 07:46 AM

Morning! How are you today Katy? I woke up before my alarm today, not impressed!

Buttons. 22-12-2016 08:06 AM

I'm okay, not looking forward to this stupid group I have to go to each Thursday but it's only two hours out of my life, and I'm going to go and get myself a burger or something from the tiny Christmas market in centre of my town to treat myself after :P

How are you apart from not impressed with beating your alarm? :P

Serendipity. 22-12-2016 08:46 AM

I hope the group goes okay lovely. A Christmas market burger sounds like a good plan for afterwards - you will definitely have earned a treat! :)

I'm okay thanks, got work today after like a week and a half off so I'm quite looking forward to that!

Cacoethes 22-12-2016 12:15 PM

Morning guys!

Hope your group goes ok Katy! Getting a burger sounds like a good plan!!

Have fun at work Hannah! Well, fun might be the wrong word but have a good day!! :)

Buttons. 22-12-2016 12:29 PM

Walked out of the group.

Hope work goes okay Hannah!

How are you Beckie?

Cacoethes 22-12-2016 01:10 PM

Sorry to hear you couldn't cope with the group.
In my experience, sometimes walking out of a group is necessary if it's just going to make you more agitated if you stay.

I'm ok thanks. Need to go to asda at some point for coke and fags (staple diet!)
And going to pop into the vape shop to get some liquid for my e-cig which I've never used so I need them to show me how it works! Won't be able to smoke over Christmas so I need some form of nicotine!

Buttons. 22-12-2016 01:15 PM

That sounds like a fantastic diet Beckie :P :D

Cacoethes 22-12-2016 01:26 PM

Haha! Yep! Very healthy :p

Sketchy 22-12-2016 02:28 PM

Afternoon all.

It's freezing. I always seem to be moaning here about the cold. I hope you guys are keeping warm in this weather.

Cacoethes 22-12-2016 03:05 PM

Hi Lorraine.
It's not that bad here today weather wise.
Hope you're keeping warm!
What are you up to today?

Buttons. 22-12-2016 04:25 PM

Sorry you're feeling so cold lovely.

I went back into town, alone (big deal for me) and had some of a burger rather than sitting at home sulking, although I may have slightly bought a jumper I can't afford in Primarni :P

Cacoethes 22-12-2016 05:15 PM

That's really good that you made it back into town Katy! I'm glad you manged a bit of a burger. :)
Primarni is dangerous when you have no money!
I bought a dress from there last week. It was only 4 but still more than I could really afford!
I do need more clothes though.

Serendipity. 22-12-2016 05:30 PM

Well done Katy! <3

Haha, it's Christmas, everyone spends too much at Christmas therefore it's okay :P

I only had to be at work for half my shift today because we don't have anyone in - everyone has decided to postpone having a crisis until after Christmas clearly :P So then I went shopping instead, oops!

Buttons. 22-12-2016 05:33 PM

Ha ha we should all start a club: shoppers anonymous (first meeting in Primarni :P)

Serendipity. 22-12-2016 05:33 PM

Sounds like a good plan to me :P

Cacoethes 22-12-2016 05:35 PM

Hi Hannah!
Yay for finishing early!!
What kind of shopping did you do? Food? Clothes? Presents? Aardvarks?

I bough a small box of celebrations for the clozapine nurses when I go for my blood test tomorrow.
It's taking all the willpower I posses not to eat them!!
I guess I could eat them and get another box tomorrow.......

Sketchy 22-12-2016 05:54 PM

I'm glad everyone's enjoying their shopping. Katy, I hope you enjoyed your burger.

I'm having a lazy day. I had an appointment but now I'm back in my flat catching up on washings and trying to relax.

Serendipity. 22-12-2016 05:57 PM

I hope you manage to relax a bit Lorraine. Is there anything that usually helps you to do that?

Yes Beckie I bought myself some aardvarks :P Nah, if I was going to buy some weird animals it would be sloths and flamingos! I actually bought myself some new clothes (which I did not need!) and boots (which I also did not need!). And a sandwich (which I did need).

That's nice of you to get chocolates for the nurses! I want to be a bad influence and tell you to eat them but I feel like you'd probably regret it if you did since you've been doing so well with Slimming World!

Sketchy 22-12-2016 06:04 PM

Music sometimes helps. Watching stuff on DVD or YouTube also helps.

It sounds like you did a good shop. I plan to shop for new clothes after the new year.

Serendipity. 22-12-2016 06:06 PM

That sounds like a good plan. Have you got any good DVDs to watch? I am loving watching Christmas films at the moment.

I also plan to shop for new clothe after the new year :P I need a going out dress so I'm going to look in the sales!

Cacoethes 22-12-2016 06:07 PM

Lazy day sounds good Lorraine! Hope you manage to relax a bit :)

Sloths are awesome! They are so cute and so chilled!
Well, it is christmas! If this isn't a time to treat yourself then I don't know what is!

Slimming world has completely gone out of the window this month! I think I'll have to start all over again in January!
The celebrations are on my armchair. I can almost hear them say 'open me! Open me!'

Sketchy 22-12-2016 06:11 PM

Pass me a celebration! Is that the ones with snickers and galaxy in them?

I like sloths too.

Serendipity. 22-12-2016 06:14 PM

I relate to sloths! :P

Well if you're opening them I'll have one too. I like the maltesers ones!
