Hope you find something to do.

My sister is making spag bol for dinner.

Cpt_Stunning 08-11-2017 06:23 PM

sounds nice, I had faggots, chips & peas for lunch today, so probably just have a light dinner.

Sketchy 08-11-2017 06:51 PM

Hope you have something nice.

Sketchy 08-11-2017 07:37 PM

How is everyone this evening?

It’s another cold night. I’m at my sister’s and she has the heating on, so I’m nice and warm.

I’m doing some sewing. What are you guys up to?

Cpt_Stunning 08-11-2017 07:45 PM

going to take the brown bins out soon, all 8 of them, apart from that just something to eat, cup of tea then bed, sweet dreams hopefully.

Sketchy 08-11-2017 07:46 PM

I hope you eat something nice. My sister made spag bol and it was delicious.

Cpt_Stunning 08-11-2017 07:57 PM

I'm jealous, I'll just have beans on toast soon.

Sketchy 08-11-2017 08:00 PM

I like beans on toast. Yum.

nonperson 08-11-2017 08:18 PM

Make some gourmet beans on toast with a splash of Worcestershire sauce and cheese on top! ;)

Sketchy 08-11-2017 08:27 PM

Ooh that sounds nice.

Buttons. 08-11-2017 08:31 PM

Home made spag bol is the bees knees! I bought an illadvised chippy takeaway-it was very nice and I have a piece of chocolate fudge cake waiting when I can make room!

Sketchy 08-11-2017 08:33 PM

That sounds great Katy. I love a chippy takeaway.

SailAway 08-11-2017 08:42 PM

Currently watching Coronation Street (Chesney does my bloody head in!), and I'm waiting for my phone to charge so I can listen to "A Game of Thrones" :).

Had an...interesting...apppintment with the recovery team today and I'm starting group therapy (my worst nightmare!) in 2 weeks time.

Also been doing some art work for a bit, bit shocked at the prices of Sketch Pads in The Range though!

Hope everyone is OK, Chocolate fudge cake is my absolut favourite, Buttons!

Sketchy 08-11-2017 08:52 PM

What kind of art work sailaway? I need to get my sketchbooks out.

I’ll need to go back to life drawing too.

I hope your therapy goes well.

SailAway 08-11-2017 08:54 PM

Thanks Sketchy :)

I just doodle anything really. Surreal, abstract etc. Using ProMarkers at the moment and getting used to how they work.

Sketchy 08-11-2017 08:59 PM

Sounds good. It’s good to get creative.

My name is Lorraine.

SailAway 08-11-2017 09:00 PM

Awesome, I'm Tasha.

Sketchy 08-11-2017 09:03 PM

That’s a nice name.

SailAway 08-11-2017 09:04 PM

I can't agree but thank you :)

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 08:12 AM

Morning guys
It is freezing again

chinahorse 09-11-2017 08:50 AM

It is beckie! Makes it super hard to convince myself to get out of bed. Shame I can't wear pj's to work.

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 09:13 AM

Pjs to work would be awesome.
Getting dressed in this cold is torture!

I gave in and put my big winter coat on.
And lukcily the bus is heated today!

[Luna] 09-11-2017 09:16 AM

It's so cold!

Just noticed the cold had already been established. Oops!

Buttons. 09-11-2017 09:37 AM

I third how cold it is!!!

[Luna] 09-11-2017 09:44 AM

How are you Katy?

Buttons. 09-11-2017 09:50 AM

Bit anxious as finally have a neurology specialist appointment later today and I'm hoping they'll be able to give me a definitive diagnosis rather than this generic 'well it's some kind of nerve damage but we don't know which illness is causing it...' so I know what I'm fighting and might be able to find treatments etc. I've written symptoms down and they'll obv have my medical records but I'm still panicking I'll forget to mention something important. Also it's my dad's car and he's a prat about wheelchairs so i can't take my outdoor wheelchair that I feel confident in, only my shitty indoor one. But I'm coping better than I thought which is the main thing :)

How are you doing lovely?

Eska 09-11-2017 10:27 AM

Katy it sounds like you've prepared really well. I hope your dad is supportive and that you get some answers.

I'm still in bed so haven't established how cold it actually is here but according to my phone it's 12 degrees? Which seems almost improbably warm but it is cloudy rather than clear so I guess that could be right.

Sketchy 09-11-2017 01:46 PM

Good afternoon all.

Katy I hope your appointment goes well and you get some answers.

Buttons. 09-11-2017 03:13 PM

Thanks both :)

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 03:45 PM

English teacher is ill so I'm home early!
Well, not yay for her being ill but yay for being home early

Buttons. 09-11-2017 03:48 PM

Yay for early hometime!!!

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 03:53 PM

Indeed! :-D

How are you Katy?

Buttons. 09-11-2017 04:00 PM

Bit nervous about this appointment but okay :) how are you lovely?

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 04:06 PM

Hope it goes ok x

Im ok thanks.

Sketchy 09-11-2017 04:32 PM

Hi everyone

I hope it goes well Katy.

I’m just back from Asda. I went with my sister and we had lunch in the cafe. Now back home.

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 04:44 PM

Hi Lorraine

That sounds nice
Did you have a good time?

Sketchy 09-11-2017 04:49 PM

I did thanks. I stayed over with sister and we had a good time.

Are you glad to be finished college for the day? I hope you have a nice relaxing evening after that.

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 05:00 PM

That's good

Yep very glad!
We all were!
Thank you
Ive got a personal statement to write but im going to leave it for tonight

Sketchy 09-11-2017 05:02 PM

Will that take long to do? Sounds like college is keeping you busy.

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 05:05 PM

It shouldn't take too long
Its hard though because its a piece of writing to bascially sell yourself to potential universities.
You need a good personal statement if you want to get interviews. Im not good at writing about my strengths and stuff

Sketchy 09-11-2017 05:10 PM

Maybe get someone else to go over it for you. It’s always good to get a second opinion. Would Chels help you?

It’s getting cold again. I’ll have to put the heating on later.

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 05:12 PM

People have been taking theirs to student services to check over it but I think I've left it too late now.
Chels has offered to look over it though

It is.
Ive just done a hot water bottle

Sketchy 09-11-2017 05:16 PM

That’s good Chels has offered to look through it.

I really need to find my hot water bottle. Or buy a new one.

Are you watching anything good at the moment? I’m still watching Orange is the new black. I’ll need to find something else to watch.

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 05:19 PM

Hot water bottles are great

Im just watching a dvd
Im hungry but going to eat a bit.later otherwise I'll be starving tonight and I have nothjng to snack on or anything

Sketchy 09-11-2017 05:21 PM

I’m eating later too, but then I had a late lunch. What are you going to have for dinner? I’m going to have vegetarian haggis and mash.

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 05:27 PM

I have butternut squash and red pepper soup

Ive never tried haggis, vegetarian or otherwise

Sketchy 09-11-2017 05:30 PM

I like butternut squash soup. That will be yummy.

I recommend the veggie haggis. So yummy. I’ve no idea what the meat one is like.

Cacoethes 09-11-2017 05:34 PM

I really like butternut squash

Hmm. I'll have to see if anywhere round here sells it

not_so_insig 09-11-2017 05:55 PM

It is definitely getting colder. I went around the park at the bottom of the road before and my mum commented on it. I hope that we don't get ice this winter as everywhere here becomes lethal.
