Jasmine was very interested in the bagpipes! She started pretending to play the bagpipes too.

Sketchy 28-01-2017 08:30 PM

That is so cute.

There's often a man in the city centre playing bagpipes. I think the tourists like it. The shops he's outside of are probably not so keen.

Bellatrix 28-01-2017 08:30 PM

What's burns night?! I probably do know but I'm drawing a blank.

Luna, I love Coroline. It's a great film!

Sketchy 28-01-2017 08:32 PM

Celebrating poet and writer Robbert burns, or Rabbie Burns. Involves haggis and bagpipes.

Bellatrix 28-01-2017 08:33 PM

Ahhhh yes I have heard of that!

Sketchy 28-01-2017 08:37 PM

The shops here were really promoting haggis for it. As soon as you walked in it was everywhere. I only like the vegetarian stuff.

Cacoethes 28-01-2017 09:37 PM

All I know about Scottish food is haggis and 'neeps and tatties'
We actually say neeps and tatties quite a lot in our family! We just like the way they sound :p

Wonderland. 28-01-2017 09:41 PM

What are neeps?

Cacoethes 28-01-2017 09:46 PM

I've always known neeps to be turnips. But I just had a quick Google and apparently there's some debate about whether neeps are turnips or swedes!

Wonderland. 28-01-2017 09:50 PM

I say ask a scot!

Cacoethes 28-01-2017 09:52 PM

Lorraine, we need you, as our resident Scot! :p

Sketchy 28-01-2017 10:16 PM

I say neeps are turnip. Haha.

Wonderland. 28-01-2017 10:22 PM

The scot has spoken!

And thinking about it logically how would you get "neep" out of the word swede?

*goes to youtube how scottish people pronounce turnip*

Sketchy 28-01-2017 10:24 PM

You just had me repeating turnip to myself to see how I say it. I don't think there are many ways to say it.

Cacoethes 28-01-2017 10:35 PM

I really don't know how you would get 'neep' from swede!
I don't know how Scottish people pronounce turnip because all my Scottish family all just say 'neep!'

Sketchy 28-01-2017 10:39 PM

If it's mashed turnip I'd call it neeps, if it's just say chopped in soup, then I call it turnip. I wish you could here me say turnip so you finally know. I wonder if my neighbours can hear me saying turnip to myself.

Cacoethes 28-01-2017 10:53 PM

Haha! Your neighbours must be rather confused if they can hear you!

Sketchy 28-01-2017 11:00 PM

They'll just think I'm taking one of my 'funny turns', haha.

How are you Beckie? Doing anything exciting? I should probably go to sleep soon, but I think I'll stay up a bit longer.

Cacoethes 28-01-2017 11:05 PM

I'm ok. Just watching mock the week with a lovely mug of hot chocolate!
I should probably go to bed at some point soon. I'm pretty tired. I really need to clean the house tomorrow but I hate cleaning!

How are you Lorraine?

Sketchy 28-01-2017 11:07 PM

I'm low but plodding along.

Hot chocolate sounds amazing. I still have lots of Christmas chocolates left over. Maybe I should have a wee chocolate.

Cacoethes 28-01-2017 11:10 PM

Sounds good! Chocolate cures all!

Sketchy 28-01-2017 11:11 PM

It does indeed!

Cacoethes 28-01-2017 11:17 PM

I'm off to bed now. Good night and hope you sleep well :)

Serendipity. 29-01-2017 12:05 AM

GUYS. I believe I have the answer to the turnip debate! Neeps are (mashed, generally) "turnip" but what we (in Scotland anyway, I am not sure about the rest of the UK!) refer to as a turnip is actually technically a swede. (Sweeds are the big ones and turnips are the little ones. Technically). Hope that helps, I know it's a super important question :P

Hope you all sleep well! <3

Buttons. 29-01-2017 12:16 AM

Glad to know about turnips and swedes! In other food related news I had an epic leek and potato soup earlier <3

Sketchy 29-01-2017 01:51 AM

Thank you Hannah for resolving this debate. I wasn't too sure what a swede was, I just assumed they were similar to turnips.

Katy, leek and potato soup is awesome.

Wonderland. 29-01-2017 02:03 AM

Hey all :)

Sketchy 29-01-2017 02:05 AM

Hey Amy. You up late too? I should go to sleep so I'm fit to go shopping with my sister tomorrow, but I got a burst of energy.

Wonderland. 29-01-2017 02:13 AM

Yep my sleep is messed up once again. Woe is me.

Are you shopping for anything in particular with your sis?

Sketchy 29-01-2017 02:15 AM

It's our dad's birthday soon, so we'll be getting his presents.

Wonderland. 29-01-2017 02:16 AM

Ahh good plan to do it together :)

Sketchy 29-01-2017 02:18 AM

Yes, means we can go for coffee too.

I better log off and try sleep, so I'll wish you good night. I hope you manage to get to sleep.

Wonderland. 29-01-2017 02:35 AM

Sleep well :)

Buttons. 29-01-2017 10:33 AM

Hope everyone managed to get to sleep :)

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 01:18 PM

Hey everyone :)

[Luna] 29-01-2017 02:06 PM

Hey Beckie, how are you?

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 02:22 PM

Hi Luna! Im ok thanks. Apart from feeling a bit sick!
How are you?

Buttons. 29-01-2017 03:22 PM

Hope you feel less sick soon Beckie.

How are you Luna?

[Luna] 29-01-2017 03:22 PM

Oh no, feeling sick is horrible.
I think my female organs are trying to kill me and I'm struggling to stay awake it seems but I'm ok.
How was it seeing Jasmine yesterday?

[Luna] 29-01-2017 03:22 PM

Ninja Katy, how are you love?

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 03:28 PM

Thanks Katy. I feel a bit better now.

Sorry to hear that Luna. Definitely get lots of rest. Do you have a hot water bottle?

Seeing Jasmine was great thanks :)
Even though she did steal most of my lunch!

I'm watching greys anatomy again. There are so many slim, pretty blondes that I genuinely can't tell them apart most of the time!

Buttons. 29-01-2017 03:28 PM

Ha ha ninja skills!

Hope you're doing okay xxx

Buttons. 29-01-2017 03:31 PM

Glad you're feeling less sick and had good time with Jasmine :) Luna hot water bottles are the best :P

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 03:45 PM

I attempted some cleaning but sickness came right back
:(
At least I managed to clean my bathroom sink and bath. They were pretty grubby!

[Luna] 29-01-2017 04:33 PM

Painkillers are FINALLY kicking in, thank god.
Sorry you're feeling sick again love, do you know what's causing it?

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 04:43 PM

Glad the painkillers are helping :)

No idea. Sometimes it just happens randomly and I have no clue why!!

Sketchy 29-01-2017 05:48 PM

Luna and Beckie, I hope you both feel better soon.

I was supposed to be going shopping with my sister, but we postponed it for tomorrow, so I'm having another lazy day. Really tired anyway. I'm determined not to stay up late again.

What is everyone up to?

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 06:31 PM

Thanks Lorraine.

Lazy day sounds good, especially of you're tired. You did go to bed quite late!

I'm just cooking jumbalya and watching lord of the rings.
My laptop charger has broken so no more greys anatomy until I get a new one!

[Luna] 29-01-2017 06:40 PM

I tried to install a software update on my phone and now it's broken :(

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 06:48 PM

Oh no!! :(
Is it fixable do you think?
