Charcoal was my favourite drawing medium when I used to do art. Charcoal and white chalk on brown paper.

Sketchy 14-02-2018 05:03 PM

Ooh brown paper is good. I love a sketchbook with brown paper.

Aubergine 14-02-2018 05:09 PM

That sounds great! Art shop sounds fun. :)


I'm about as artistic as a paper bag.

Sketchy 14-02-2018 05:11 PM

You just haven’t found the right art or craft for you. There is something out there for you. When I taught art workshops I was always determined to find something for everyone.

nonperson 14-02-2018 05:30 PM

I haven’t done art of any kind for so long. Keep thinking about joining an art class... I’ll probably never do it. And too unmotivated to draw stuff myself.

Aubergine 14-02-2018 05:33 PM

I enjoyed woodwork when I did that at school. Was OK at it too. Found drawing, sewing, painting etc difficult and not enjoyable. Creativity is not my strong point. Even with woodwork I had to be given something to make. Struggled to come up with ideas on my own. No imagination! Doom.

nonperson 14-02-2018 05:36 PM

Not everyone needs to be creative!

Maybe you would have become more creative if you did it for longer.

Sketchy 14-02-2018 05:40 PM

An art class is a good idea Nonperson.

Aubergine 14-02-2018 05:42 PM

That's true, Person! Perhaps it's OK to not be creative!


How's your day been?

nonperson 14-02-2018 05:48 PM

It’s been ok. Only worked a half day then I’ve been home this afternoon to look after poorly cat. I also made a practice microwave Victoria sponge (for friend’s upcoming birthday). I need a lot more practice.... I’m not creative when it comes to baking! I got overly excited when I managed to whip cream. =D

Sketchy 14-02-2018 05:49 PM

Victoria sponge sounds delicious. I hope your kitty is ok.

Aubergine 14-02-2018 05:49 PM

Well done on the cream whipping! Impressive. :D Practicing baking is fun. Is it a mug cake thing? Or some other kind of microwave sponge? How's your cat doing?

nonperson 14-02-2018 05:52 PM

It’s a mug cake of course!

He’s doing ok, doesn’t like wearing his cone and not being allowed outside. But he’s just being clingy mostly so I’ve not been able to move most of the afternoon. It’s quite a big incision the vets did on him though, looks like he’s had open heart surgery!

nonperson 14-02-2018 05:55 PM

Also mug cake masterpiece: https://ibb.co/gkPnBS

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 05:59 PM

Back from driving lesson
No one died, always the sign of a good lesson :p
Even though I've been having lessons for a while, I still think 'woah, I'm driving an actual car!' every time!
Makes me feel like a real grown up for some reason

Aubergine 14-02-2018 06:00 PM

I'm glad he's doing OK. Poor thing. I'm glad he's got you to have cuddles with. :) That mug cake looks awesome!

Aubergine 14-02-2018 06:00 PM

Well done, Beckie!

chinahorse 14-02-2018 06:00 PM

Poor kitty cat :(

That cake looks rather nice!

Aubergine 14-02-2018 06:01 PM

Hey Lillie! How goes it?

Sketchy 14-02-2018 06:01 PM

Poor kitty. I hope he makes a speedy recovery.

That cake looks gorgeous. I’m impressed.

chinahorse 14-02-2018 06:01 PM

Heya :)

Bit mergh, hopefully its just tiredness and not illness.

How be you?

Sketchy 14-02-2018 06:02 PM

Glad your lesson went well Beckie.

Hey Lillie.

nonperson 14-02-2018 06:04 PM

Haha, the cake was ok, a bit rubbery and the cream on top was hiding a massive hole!

Aubergine 14-02-2018 06:06 PM

I'm OK thanks. Looking at cats to rehome! https://www.rspca.org.uk/local/llys-...2072119/teaser <3


Not that I've got my landlord's permission yet!


I hope that a good sleep helps you feel better, Lillie.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 06:07 PM

Hope you feel better soon Lillie!

Ooo cats!!

Sketchy 14-02-2018 06:09 PM

I hope your landlord says yes. Cats are so precious. Molly the cat sends you hugs and luck on your search.

chinahorse 14-02-2018 06:26 PM

Cats are cute, if they are snuggly and playful though.

Sketchy 14-02-2018 06:28 PM

Molly was so playful this morning. We played with all her toys and I had her chasing a straw around the flat for ages.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 06:31 PM

Cats are awesome

nonperson 14-02-2018 06:34 PM

Yes they are. ^.^

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 06:43 PM

I still prefer dogs though!

nonperson 14-02-2018 06:45 PM

I like dogs a lot too.

Aubergine 14-02-2018 06:47 PM

I just asked my landlord...

Aubergine 14-02-2018 06:47 PM

Thank you for the Molly luck! I'll understand if it's a no, but it would be lovely to have company.

Sketchy 14-02-2018 06:48 PM

Ooh good luck!

nonperson 14-02-2018 06:50 PM

When will you find out, Aubergine?!

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 06:51 PM

Fingers crossed Aubergine!!

Aubergine 14-02-2018 06:51 PM

Thanks Lorraine. I was supposed to wait until I've been here two years, but to be honest, it's been 18 months and I think if it's going to be a yes/no, it'll not change in 6 months.

Aubergine 14-02-2018 06:51 PM

Ooo I'm too slow. Thnaks everyone! I don't know. Whenever she messages back haha!

nonperson 14-02-2018 06:52 PM

Eek, hate having to wait for a response!

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 06:54 PM

Hopefully she'll get back to you soon!

Buttons. 14-02-2018 07:01 PM

Hope she gets back to you soon :)

Sketchy 14-02-2018 07:02 PM

Hey Buttons!

It’s so cold. Trying to heat up. Think a cup of tea might help.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 07:04 PM

Hey Buttons!

Its raining really heavily!

Buttons. 14-02-2018 07:05 PM

Hey Lorraine :) Cups of tea are good for warming up with. Dad helped me with my boiler so I now have some central heating at last-I'm in shock at not being cold except when I nip out for a cig-I've been sat there with layer on layer for months now a hoody and leggings and I'm fine :D

Buttons. 14-02-2018 07:06 PM

Hey Beckie. It's only raining a bit here, but quite windy.

chinahorse 14-02-2018 07:08 PM

That must be glorious buttons!

Tea is good for heating up. As is tea in bed in a onesie like I am rn. Gunna see if another snooze helps me feel less ill. Troll body. I would like to have enjoyed my first day off in 6 days.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 07:14 PM

Glad your heating is sorted Buttons!!
Why do these things always break when it's freezing?!

Its raining so much that it's slightly interfering with tv signal :(

Aww Lillie I hope you feel better soon!

chinahorse 14-02-2018 07:15 PM

Eesh that must be quite some rain!

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 07:21 PM

It is!!
I love the rain but not when it interferes with CSI new york!
