Enjoy pirates of the Caribbean. An early night is a good idea. I’m going to do the same.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 07:11 PM

I love the pirates of the Caribbean films!

Im already getting tired which is weird because I've done nothing this weekend!

Sketchy 19-11-2017 07:13 PM

Sometimes you just get tired for no reason. I’m always tired and there’s no reason why I should be. Maybe you’ll feel better after an early night.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 07:16 PM

That is true!

Sketchy 19-11-2017 08:07 PM

I’ve filled my hot water bottles. Nice and warm now.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 08:09 PM

Love a hot water bottle
I might do mine now

not_so_insig 19-11-2017 08:10 PM

That's great Lorraine. I have had wine and my tea so I am warm. Plus I am under a duvet.

Sketchy 19-11-2017 08:11 PM

Good plan. They are super useful at this time of year. I’m glad I bought them yesterday.

Sketchy 19-11-2017 08:12 PM

Did you enjoy your tea Dawn?

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 08:22 PM

Hot water bottles are amazing!
Ive just done mine and i have my fluffy blanket!
So toasty!

Sketchy 19-11-2017 08:27 PM

Excellent. I’ve went under my duvet with my hot water bottles, so I’m nice and toasty. Can’t keep just putting the heating on.

I think I’ll watch my mad fat diary and stay hiding under my duvet.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 08:30 PM

Sounds like a good plan!
Its so cold!

Im hungry again.
Might have an alpen bar

Sketchy 19-11-2017 08:32 PM

Alpen bar is a good idea. I still have pizza left. Might have a slice later.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 08:37 PM

Ive just gone to put my electric blanket on but it looked like there were flashing lights in the plug bit which I'm assuming is not a good sign :/
Probably sparking or something

Sketchy 19-11-2017 08:39 PM

That doesn’t sound good. Best keep it off. Can you treat yourself to a new one or maybe ask family to get you one for Christmas?

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 08:44 PM

I won't be able to afford a new one for a while i dont think but I could ask for one for christmas. Thats a good idea
At least I have my hot water bottle!!

Sketchy 19-11-2017 08:48 PM

It’s so annoying how expensive this time of year seems to be. I hope you get one for Christmas.

I have one hot water bottle at my feet and the other I’m almost hugging. Nice and cosy.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 08:49 PM

I know!
I think I'll just have to get presents for Jasmine and my little sister this year. And one of my brothers because his birthday is christmas day.
I usually try and get presents for everyone but I have 4 siblings so its hard!

I do the same with my hot water bottles! So warm!

Sketchy 19-11-2017 08:54 PM

I have my sister, Dad, uncle and friend to buy for. Thankfully I can make things easily, so my writing group will be getting a handmade gift.
Four siblings is a lot to buy for.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 09:03 PM

Thats really nice
I wish i was creative!

Yep. I know my brothers will understand that its hard for me to buy things for them. And my sister would too but she's 13 so I still feel she's young enough for the whole christmas thing where my brothers are older and not so into it.

Sketchy 19-11-2017 09:08 PM

I’m sure your brothers will understand. They would rather you use your money for things like bills and food. My family don’t expect massive gifts from me for that reason. I’ve so far bought my dad’s Christmas present. He’s joined walking groups and is really into it, so I got him a book about Scottish walking routes and where is nice to walk. The book looks good and is very detailed with good ideas.
I have no idea yet what to get my sister. She’s always so good to me so I like to treat her when I can.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 09:13 PM

Yes they will understand.
Just a shame because I'd like to be able to treat them
But it is what it is i suppose!

The walking book sounds great. Im sure he'll love it.
Still got plenty of time before Christmas yet.
Im sure you'll think of something!

Sketchy 19-11-2017 09:15 PM

I know it’s frustrating. I would love to be able to treat my family more, but as you say it is what it is.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 09:21 PM

Hopefully one day I'll be able to!

Im watching the big bang theory.
Theres a new episode next

Sketchy 19-11-2017 09:24 PM

I’m way behind in watching that.

Cacoethes 19-11-2017 09:25 PM

Me too.
This is the first time I've caught a new episode in a long time!

Buttons. 20-11-2017 04:52 AM

4od is a wonderful creation to help you catch up with Big Bang!

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 07:51 AM

I always forget about 4OD for some reason!

Morning everyone.
Do not want to be awake at this time
And my living room light bulb has died.
I can't get the bulb out

not_so_insig 20-11-2017 01:18 PM

Afternoon all.

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 02:13 PM

Hi dawn

College finished early so im on the bus home!
Very pleased
Got some work to do though

not_so_insig 20-11-2017 02:35 PM

That's great Beckie.

I don't know what to have for tea.

Sketchy 20-11-2017 03:39 PM

Afternoon all.

What is everyone up to? I’m just relaxing before I go to the shop later.

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 04:12 PM

I am home!
And i managed to remove the old lightbulb!
Quite proud of myself because I wouldn't even touch a light bulb before for fear of shocks!
Can't get any new light bulbs until tomorrow though

not_so_insig 20-11-2017 04:38 PM

My lightbulb went the other day too. Fortunately I had a spare lightbulb.

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 04:43 PM

I dont have a spare one.
So I shall be spending tonight in darkness!

not_so_insig 20-11-2017 05:59 PM

Do you have a torch? Be safe in the dark Beckie.

Sketchy 20-11-2017 06:11 PM

Maybe for tonight you can sit in your bedroom instead Beckie.

I’ve still to go to the shop. Going soon, because I need to buy food. Really want noodles.

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 06:13 PM

I don't have a torch.
I am downloading a torch app on my old phone so i can use that for now!
I'll be fine :)

What sort of noodles do you get lorraine?

Sketchy 20-11-2017 06:57 PM

Just back, I got super noodles. BBQ, which are surprisingly vegetarian. I’ve been wanting noodles all day yesterday and today, so I’m glad I went out.

Cpt_Stunning 20-11-2017 07:09 PM

I'm going to have my usual fried egg on toast to start with, already had one this morning, after that don't know.

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 07:10 PM

Super noodles are nice
I like the chicken ones best!
I am surprised that they are veggie!

Sounds good Chris

Ive just had some soup

Sketchy 20-11-2017 07:13 PM

Sounds yummy Chris.

Soup sounds good too Beckie.

I bought diet irn bru too, and a few other odds and ends, so I’m all sorted for tonight. I’ll do a proper shop another day. Glad I made it out. It wasn’t looking too promising earlier.

Sketchy 20-11-2017 07:14 PM

I don’t think all the super noodles are veggie, just some of them. I had to check the back.

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 07:24 PM

Well done for making it out!
Its especially hard at this time of year.

Sketchy 20-11-2017 07:26 PM

It is indeed. It was so dark and raining.

How are you coping? Do you have candles?

Cpt_Stunning 20-11-2017 07:28 PM

That reminded me, I've got pot noodles, I'll have one of those.

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 07:30 PM

Im ok
I dont have any candles apart from my scented one
Its fine though
Ive got my kitchen light on which is providing some light and the tv as well
I have a pot of 'nakd noodles'
They are like posh pot noodles.
I got a couple when they were on special offer but the 2 ive tried so far have been disgusting!
I still have one to try but i doubt I'll like it

Sketchy 20-11-2017 07:39 PM

That’s good you have some source of light.

Those noodles don’t sound too appealing. I hope the one you have to try is alright.

I’m already fed up with winter and it’s only November. Can we fast forward to March?

nonperson 20-11-2017 07:42 PM

*comes in frowning, in a tangle of wires...*

Trying to install new orchid lighting but there are too many wires! Starting to get annoyed with it all so I need a break, grr...

Cacoethes 20-11-2017 07:42 PM

It will probably also be gross tbh!

Me too.
Its so dark and cold!
It wasn't actually that cold when I got up this morning
It was 7 which is pretty good considering its been like -1

Take a break and try again in a bit nonperson!
It sounds super frustrating!
