I'm not really sure how to explain Taboo so I'll just c/p the plot from Wikipedia:
1814. James Delaney reappears in London, a changed and haunted man, presumed dead in Africa many years before. His return finds his father, Horace Delaney, dead and a country at war with France and the United States. Set to inherit what’s left of his father’s shipping empire, James’ arrival not only threatens to disrupt the plans of his half‐sister Zilpha and her husband Thorne, but also the political ambitions of the mighty East India Company, chaired by Sir Stuart Strange.

It's odd. Something about stolen diamonds as well.

I hope you are enjoying it.

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 09:58 PM

I'd probably be enjoying it more if I knew what on earth was going on!
I think it's one of those shows you really have to concentrate on. Or maybe more will be revealed?
I will persevere!

What are you up to Lorraine?

Sketchy 07-01-2017 09:59 PM

I'm doing nothing. Thinking of going to sleep soon.

Sketchy 07-01-2017 10:00 PM

Although I feel like watching something but not sure what.

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 10:03 PM

I'll probably go to sleep soon too.

Maybe have a flick through the channels? There's sure to be something on.

Sketchy 07-01-2017 10:06 PM

I think I'll see what's on iplayer, because I'm in bed using my phone.

Cacoethes 07-01-2017 10:07 PM

Good plan.

I'm off to bed now. Night night everyone! :)

Sketchy 07-01-2017 10:08 PM

Good night .

Serendipity. 07-01-2017 10:19 PM

Sleep well!!

I don't like things I have to concentrate too much on :P

Buttons. 08-01-2017 06:08 AM

Was chuffed for Dylan in Casualty, also drama llama re. Connie etc!

Early morning everybody :)

Serendipity. 08-01-2017 09:04 AM

Katy why are you always up so early?! Poor you! I would totally still be in bed right now if I didn't have work!

Buttons. 08-01-2017 09:55 AM

Ha ha I'm usually up from 2am onwards so... :P

Hope work goes okay :)

Serendipity. 08-01-2017 10:12 AM

Ugh no, that's terrible! What time do you to sleep?

How are you today?

Buttons. 08-01-2017 10:17 AM

If I go to sleep at 9 I tend to be awake from 12 onwards if I sleep by 11 or so I can get through to about 2am. Have had the odd occasion where gone back to bed about 6/7 and slept til 8am.

I'm not brilliant but I'll survive I always do :) How are you doing lovely?

Cacoethes 08-01-2017 11:17 AM

That sounds really **** Katy!
I need a lot of sleep because of the clozapine. If I don't get enough sleep then I am unable to function!

Have a good day at work Hannah! (I don't know why but I'm suddenly unsure of what your name is, I'm pretty sure it's Hannah!)
My brain is being weird!! :p

Buttons. 08-01-2017 11:27 AM

^ Ha ha forgetting name-wise I'm exactly the same, don't worry about it! I'm actually glad am not the only one!!

It's alright, could be worse. My meds tend to make me sleepy (when I remember them :P) it's just I get to sleep then a couple of hours later usually after nightmare am up, knackered, but can't get back off again. Worse things happen at sea though, and the night sky is often very pretty :P

Buttons. 08-01-2017 11:27 AM

*hums always look on the bright side of life* :P

Cacoethes 08-01-2017 11:44 AM

Haha!! We can be forgetful weirdos together then :p

Have you tried any sort of sleeping aid? Promethazine can be quite good and you can get it otc!

Great, now I'm going to have that stuck in my head for the rest of the day!! And a sudden urge to watch Life of Brian!!

Buttons. 08-01-2017 02:10 PM

Indeed. We can become the league of weirdos-who else wants to join? :P

I tried some herbal stuff but didn't work, may try what you suggested...sleep has become a bit of a fear thing though cos whenever I do I have stupid nightmares.

Ha ha it can NEVER be a bad thing to watch Life of Brian. May have to do similar later. HE'S NOT THE MESSIAH...

Cacoethes 08-01-2017 02:17 PM

It's worth a go. And promethazine isn't addictive or anything. It's quite gentle really if you know what I mean! Not like benzos

Blessed are the cheesemakers!!!

Buttons. 08-01-2017 02:19 PM

Will defo have a look when in town :)

'brought peace?'
'Peace? SHUT UP!'

Cacoethes 08-01-2017 02:24 PM

I really need to watch it again!
Going out at 3 so probably will watch it when I get home!
It's so funny!

'Biggus dickus' XD

Buttons. 08-01-2017 02:29 PM

Sounds like a poa-I will probably try and find my copy at some point this afternoon!

NO ONE IS TO STONE ANYONE UNTIL I BLOW THIS WHISTLE. Even and I want to make this ABSOLUTELY CLEAR even if they do say Jehovah!

Cacoethes 08-01-2017 02:31 PM


AnD the but where all the women are wearing fake beards. 'Who said jehova?'
'She did she did! Uhh he did, he did!!'

Buttons. 08-01-2017 02:36 PM

I like the bit with the juniper bushes :P

Cacoethes 08-01-2017 02:50 PM

The old man is hilarious!!

I'm off now. See you guys later!!

Buttons. 08-01-2017 03:03 PM


Have fun!!!

Sketchy 08-01-2017 03:16 PM

Good afternoon all. How is everyone?
I just went on a walk and am now having a cup of tea in a coffee shop.

Buttons. 08-01-2017 03:20 PM

Sounds like a good afternoon Lorraine :)

Sketchy 08-01-2017 03:21 PM

I'm really forcing myself to get out and about, which is hard.
How has your afternoon been?

Buttons. 08-01-2017 03:29 PM

That can be so so difficult but the fact that you've made yourself do it, do you know what that shows? Commitment and bravery.You are an admirable person, even if it doesn't feel like it right now.

It's been okay thanks :)

Sketchy 08-01-2017 03:31 PM

Thank you so much. That was really sweet of you.

Buttons. 08-01-2017 03:32 PM

Well it was meant. Believe me I don't say things I don't mean :)

What's your plans for rest of evening?

Sketchy 08-01-2017 03:38 PM

Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.

I'm going to the shops for bread and other boring stuff, then I'm going home to tidy a little bit and then have a bubble bath. I'll probably just relax because I'm really tired now.

What do you have planned?

Buttons. 08-01-2017 03:41 PM

Bubble bath sounds relaxing.

I am trying to distract (and thanks to Beckie now watching Life of Brian in between smokes).

Sketchy 08-01-2017 03:42 PM

TV is a good distraction. I hope it's helping.

Buttons. 08-01-2017 04:16 PM

Thankyou :)

Serendipity. 08-01-2017 05:15 PM

You're all fabulous <3

Sounds like you guys have good plans for the evening, I hope you manage to relax and stay distracted. I am going to do my ironing tonight, thrilling I know!! :P

Sketchy 08-01-2017 05:23 PM

I hate ironing. It's best to get it out the way though.
I just had a bubble bath after my walk. I used some of my Christmas gifts I got, including a lush set, rose bath bomb and shower gel. So relaxing.

How are you Hannah?

Serendipity. 08-01-2017 05:45 PM

Oh that sounds nice Lorraine! Well not to me, I hate baths :P But I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

I hate ironing too but my pile of ironing that needs doing is threatening to take over my whole bedroom so I really need to do something about it!

I'm okay. How are you?

Sketchy 08-01-2017 05:47 PM

I'm ok thanks. Just relaxing after my walk.

I avoid ironing if I can. I hang my clothes to dry in a way that will require minimal ironing.

Serendipity. 08-01-2017 08:19 PM

I do not seem to have that skill!

Relaxing is good :)

Wonderland. 08-01-2017 08:23 PM

hey guys.

Sketchy 08-01-2017 08:24 PM

Hey Amy. How are you?

Wonderland. 08-01-2017 08:30 PM

I'm a sad egg today. Trying to cheer myself up by watching "this time next year".

Are you managing to relax okay?

Serendipity. 08-01-2017 08:31 PM

I'm sorry you're feeling sad lovely. Anything we can do to help? I haven't seen that I don't think. Is it good? <3

Sketchy 08-01-2017 08:32 PM

I'm sorry you are feeling sad. *hugs*

I am relaxing. I'm curled up in my bed just now, but that's mainly to heat myself up. I always seem to feel cold these days.

Wonderland. 08-01-2017 08:37 PM

I like it, people come on and set a goal to try and have accomplished in a years time, like lose weight, have a baby, conquer a fear etc and then come back on the same episode and they tell you how they've done. It's quite inspiring.

Sketchy 08-01-2017 08:39 PM

Sounds interesting.
