I didn’t watch strictly. Just casualty. I wouldn’t mind being able to dance.

Cacoethes 28-10-2017 10:20 PM

Im terrible at dancing!
I still enjoy my dance exercise classes though

Sketchy 28-10-2017 10:25 PM

I need to get more exercise. I’m going to start walking more.

Buttons. 28-10-2017 10:57 PM

I didn't realise until I checked on iplay and watched them in order I was a weel behind in Casualty due to college hmwk etc. Didn't realise I'd be that triggered by both. Normally not by anything so that was fun news -_-

I find walk/rolling with the dog quite rewarding Lorraine and also when I used to be able to walk to town centre where I used to live I'd make myself an (extensive) playlist on my phone for my walk so it became enjoyable. In your case incorporating your artistic side maybe think of the photopgraphic opportunites you'll have on each walk.

Sketchy 28-10-2017 11:00 PM

I’m sorry you found it hard. *hugs*

That’s a good idea. I’ll take some photos and put together a playlist on my iPod. For a while I was doing well with walking, but I’ve been struggling to get out. I might go for a walk on Monday. I’ll be going to the post office to post a certain persons parcel so maybe I can walk to the further away post office.

Buttons. 29-10-2017 09:44 AM

Glad you think it might be helpful and YAY PARCEL *hem hem* don't have a clue whose parcel you mean :P

How are you today? I'm geeking out on JK Rowlings History of magic programme from last night that I didn't have chance to watch.

Sketchy 29-10-2017 11:06 AM

Geeking out sounds good. I’m still at my sister’s. Going to stay here until lunchtime and then going to the shop. I’ll probably do some sewing when I get home. I really should do housework and work into my paintings, but there is always tomorrow.

We are eating croissants for breakfast.

Eska 29-10-2017 11:08 AM

Morning everyone :)

I'm on the train on the way into work. Not really feeling it today.

Sketchy 29-10-2017 11:10 AM

Morning Eska. Sorry you aren’t feeling it. I hope you have a good day at work.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 11:50 AM

Morning guys

Shy_Bambi 29-10-2017 11:54 AM

Good morning everyone, hope we're all well?
I just woke up but I'm bored already!

Have a good day at work Eska!

Buttons. 29-10-2017 12:03 PM

Hope the day improves Eska.

Morning all! How are we? I'm hoping when my support worker eventually arrives she'll agree to go to the carvery down the road-really craving a roast dinner!

Sketchy 29-10-2017 12:10 PM

Morning all.

I hope you get your roast dinner Katy.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 12:14 PM

Mmmm carvery!
I had one the other day.
Hope you manage to get one!

Shy_Bambi 29-10-2017 12:26 PM

I hope you get your dinner! It sounds good. I'm really hungry but it's a bit early to be eating for me. I'm watching Judge Judy.

Sketchy 29-10-2017 12:37 PM

It’s nearly lunch time Rebecca. What you going to have?

Shy_Bambi 29-10-2017 12:38 PM

I might have some quorn nuggets and peas. Just something small
How about you Lorraine?

Sketchy 29-10-2017 12:42 PM

Not sure what we’re having. Quorn nuggets sounds good. Haven’t had them in ages.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 12:47 PM

Not sure what im having either.
I'll be setting off home soonish.

Sketchy 29-10-2017 12:49 PM

Do you have a long journey ahead of you?

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 12:51 PM

About 2 and a half hours.
Its not too bad.
The journey goes quite fast because I just listen to music and zone out!

Sketchy 29-10-2017 12:52 PM

Music makes all journeys better. Don’t know where I’d be without my iPod.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 01:09 PM

Me too!
I can't do a journey without music!

Buttons. 29-10-2017 01:14 PM

Thanks all I hope I get my dinner too!

Quorn nuggets as I remember were nommy-enjoy Rebecca!

Beckie I also cannot do a journey without music. Although mine is getting increasingly 'old' :P

Sketchy 29-10-2017 01:41 PM

I’m bored. My sister is away for a nap, so I’m in the living room alone now. I was sewing for a while but I’m having a rest.

Sketchy 29-10-2017 01:42 PM

Nothing wrong with old music Katy. I have some really old stuff on my iPod.

Buttons. 29-10-2017 01:44 PM

True dat :P

Sorry you're bored.

Tell you what favourite artist and why (other than Frieda Kahlo)-have a think on that!

Sketchy 29-10-2017 01:49 PM

Ooh that’s a big question. I love lots of artists.

I like Nathan Coley.
And Edvard Munch.

Actually I can’t choose. There are so many I like.

Buttons. 29-10-2017 01:51 PM

Least it gives you something to think about ;P

Sketchy 29-10-2017 01:55 PM

I like Tony Cragg and Toby Paterson. Nope, nope, I can’t choose one. Don’t make me choose just one!

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 02:41 PM

I have mostly old music too tbh
Been listening to the same music for about 10 years XD

Katy is the queen of difficult questions!!

I am on the train and will be departing soon!
These trains are always only 2 carriages but I got a seat that hasn't been reserved so yay!!

Sketchy 29-10-2017 02:44 PM

Glad you got a seat Beckie. Hope your journey goes by fast.

I’m going to be having lunch soon. If my sister wakes up. Then I’m going to Asda.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 03:00 PM

Thanks! :)
The signal is really bad most of the journey though which is annoying!

What are you having for lunch?
I had a ham sandwich and some trifle.
Morrisons do a homemade trifle and it is actually amazing!

Sketchy 29-10-2017 03:03 PM

Not sure what we are having. Probably a bagel with cheese.

That’s annoying about the signal.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 03:43 PM

Haven't had a bagel in years!
I used to like marmite and cheese in a toasted bagel. Nom!

I need the toilet but a) I hate train toilets and b) I have really heavy bags and dont want to drag them all the way down the carriage!
Will have to hold it in for the next 40 mins!!
Because you all needed to know that :p

Sketchy 29-10-2017 04:33 PM

I hope you hold it in Beckie. Train toilets are the worst.

I’m in Asda cafe having a cup of tea after having done my shopping. I didn’t have much to get. Just things I forgot the other day at Morrisons.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 04:42 PM

Thanks. I managed it.
On next train now.
Should be home in 40ish minutes!

Sounds nice Lorraine!
Well done for getting out!

I dont think i have anything in for dinner and asda will be shut by the time I get back.

Sketchy 29-10-2017 04:44 PM

Oh no, what are you going to have? Takeaway? Do you even have pasta or something at home?

I nearly never made it out, so glad I did.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 04:46 PM

I'll probably get a takeaway.
I dont even think i have pasta!
I'll see when i get home.

You should be proud of yourself!
Getting out can be really difficult when you aren't feeling great

Sketchy 29-10-2017 04:48 PM

I’m also planning to go out tomorrow. I promised to post a bag to Dawn and Katy, so I’ll have to go to the post office. I’ll also go for a coffee. What have you got planned for the week? College tomorrow?

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 04:50 PM

Sounds good!

Yep im back at college tomorrow.
Im quite looking forward to it!
Ive missed my friends.
Not looking forward to the early start though!
It'll be darker when I get up because the clocks have changed.

Sketchy 29-10-2017 04:52 PM

That’s true. But it will be worth it to get back into it and see everyone.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 04:54 PM

It will indeed!!

I cant wait to get home.
I had a really nice time at my nannys but it'll be good to be in my own house again!

Sketchy 29-10-2017 04:57 PM

It’s always good to get back home. I had a lovely time staying over at my sister’s, but I’m looking forward to going home too.

I’ve finished my tea. Going to head home now.

Sketchy 29-10-2017 05:30 PM

Home now. I hope everyone is having a good Sunday. It’s a lovely day here. It’s cold, but it’s so bright. A lovely autumn day.

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 05:39 PM

Im just home too

Its not bad here either. Not too cold.
Getting darker now though!

Sketchy 29-10-2017 05:47 PM

I love it when it’s cold and bright. Perfect for walking in. I hope it’s nice like this when I walk to the post office tomorrow.

You’ll be glad to be home after that long train journey. Why are train journeys so tiring?

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 05:51 PM

It rained on and off throughout my journey. Saw a few rainbows!

Its weird that long journeys are so tiring because all you do it sit down! But they are tiring!

Sketchy 29-10-2017 05:55 PM

Ooh I like rainbows. Seeing one always makes me smile.

What are you going to do now you are home? Relax?

Cacoethes 29-10-2017 06:23 PM

No relaxing for me unfortunately!
Need to get this research proposal done.
Im so tired though!
