I love dunking bourbon biscuits, although those aren't alcoholic.

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:15 PM

They're the chocolatey ones? They were my favourite in hospital.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 09:16 PM

Yes they are :)

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 09:16 PM

Bourbon biscuits are my favourite biscuits. I got two boxes of m & s biscuits.

Aubergine 28-12-2017 09:18 PM

Hey everyone.

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:18 PM

Why are they even called Bourbon biscuits? (can't be bothered googling).

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:19 PM

Hello Aubergine. Are you doing much this evening?

Buttons. 28-12-2017 09:19 PM

They're my favourites too Dawn.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 09:19 PM

The biscuits must be dunked!
I am shocked!

I did see that robot show advertised.
I think it would creep me out too much though!

I was tempted by the reduced selection boxes but I resisted somehow!

Hi aubergine!

Buttons. 28-12-2017 09:19 PM

Hey Aubergine.

And Lins no idea why.

Aubergine 28-12-2017 09:20 PM

Hey Lindsay. How's it going?


I'm watching the Big Bang Theory and waiting for my new laptop to finish updating.

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 09:21 PM

I miss my kitties :-(

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:21 PM

Buttons, be my slave and Google it for me...

New tech is fun.

Aubergine 28-12-2017 09:22 PM

Hey Beckie and Buttons!

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:22 PM

*hugs Dawn* I know that feeling.

Sketchy 28-12-2017 09:23 PM

Chocolate liqueurs have liquid inside. Champagne truffles have a truffle inside with champagne mixed in with it. The truffles are the best ones. I like a rum truffle.

Mmmmm Bourbon biscuits!

Sketchy 28-12-2017 09:23 PM

Poor Dawn. When do you get them back?

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:23 PM

I like normal truffles. Was sad when they took them out of the Celebrations chocolates.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 09:24 PM

Alright Lins. It turns out they were named after the Royal House of Bourbon.

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:25 PM

Thanks! What shall I get my slave to do next...

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 09:25 PM

Ikr lindsay!
The truffles were the best ones in celebrations!!

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:26 PM

Yes they were Beckie. The malteasers ones are my second favourite.

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 09:27 PM

I get them back 2nd of January. But not until the afternoon because I have a dentist appointment in the morning.

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:28 PM

I'm sure they'll have lots of purrs and cuddles for you. :)

Aubergine 28-12-2017 09:28 PM

I love truffles of all kinds! I had some Baileys truffles for Christmas. They are now gone! They were delicious.


New tech IS fun. I had some money for Christmas and needed a new laptop for Open University studies, as I have an old Chromebook and you need to download software for my course, which you can't do on Chrome. Very excited to play with it, but will be more excited when the updates finish. Only 80% to go...

Sketchy 28-12-2017 09:29 PM

I hope it goes by quickly for you Dawn. You will be reunited soon.

Sketchy 28-12-2017 09:29 PM

Ooh baileys truffles!

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:29 PM

Is it taking ages to update? I'm quite impatient when it comes to setting things up.

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 09:34 PM

One of my cats gets dead excited if she doesn't see me for a while. The cattery takes pictures of the cats in their care unless you specify otherwise. They uploaded pictures before and they look well especially my nearly 17 year old.

Lindsay been as you're now my Facebook friend most of my posts are about my cats.

Sketchy 28-12-2017 09:37 PM

I’m sure your cats are very happy, but they will be glad to see you again.

I’m looking after Molly the cat on Sunday all day. Looking forward to that.

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 09:41 PM

Is she going to be an outdoor cat once she's neutered or are you going to keep her indoors only?

Sketchy 28-12-2017 09:43 PM

She’s indoors. There are too many busy roads near us.

She’s perfectly content anyway. She’s either really playful, asleep, or demanding hugs and attention. Very adorable.

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 09:49 PM

Mine are indoors only.

Aubergine 28-12-2017 09:51 PM

That's really good that the cattery takes pictures, Dawn. I'm glad they're looking well.


Your cat sounds so cute, Lorraine! Love a good kitten cuddle!


It is taking ages to update, Lindsay. It's now at 35%...

Buttons. 28-12-2017 10:10 PM

*casually releases my adorable dog into the thread to chase off all the cats* Although last time she approached a cat she got biffed over the head with it's paw for her trouble and she jumped into my arms like muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum the cat is going to eat me!!!

Sketchy 28-12-2017 10:14 PM

She might be scared of Molly then. Molly is a brave wee thing who would probably chase her.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 10:28 PM

Ha ha I think Molly would probably win :P

Cacoethes 29-12-2017 12:22 PM

Morning guys

Sketchy 29-12-2017 12:30 PM

Morning everyone.

We have thick snow everywhere! I’ll be going out a walk in it later. I love snow.

Cacoethes 29-12-2017 12:36 PM

Hi Lorraine
Enjoy the snow today!

Sketchy 29-12-2017 12:37 PM

Thanks.

How are you Beckie?

Cacoethes 29-12-2017 12:53 PM

Im not thanks.
Got the dentist later.
Really can't be bothered.
Would rather stay inside.
Got to be done though!

Sketchy 29-12-2017 12:58 PM

I hope the dentist goes well and goes by quickly.

Cacoethes 29-12-2017 01:02 PM

Thanks :)

Sketchy 29-12-2017 01:03 PM

I’m looking forward to going out. I love a walk in the snow as long as I’m wrapped up warm.

Cacoethes 29-12-2017 01:10 PM

Will you go anywhere in particular?

My new printer has been delivered.
Looking forward to setting it up!
Will be so much better than going to the library!

Sketchy 29-12-2017 01:12 PM

That’s great you have your printer. Very useful.

I’ll probably walk around the park, then go for a coffee.

not_so_insig 29-12-2017 01:17 PM

I have the dentist on the 2nd of January so I feel your pain Beckie.

Cacoethes 29-12-2017 01:24 PM

Sounds good Lorraine.
Coffee is great in this weather!
I might go for one after the dentist.

Sorry you have an appointment too Dawn!
The dentist is awful!

nonperson 29-12-2017 01:27 PM

Y'ello all.

I was going to say morning but I now realise it's not any more...
