Thanks Eska!
I think it went ok.

Climbing is fun, i haven't done it in ages!

Buttons. 13-12-2017 07:01 PM

Evening all glad interview went well Beckie :)

Hope everyone is doing okay :)

Cacoethes 13-12-2017 07:16 PM

Thanks Buttons!
Ive just got home. So tired!

How are you?

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 08:30 PM

You are a champion Beckie! Hope you can have a relaxing evening now.

Sketchy 13-12-2017 08:42 PM

Glad it went well Beckie.

Hello everyone.

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 09:03 PM

Evening Lorraine, how has your day been?

Sketchy 13-12-2017 09:05 PM

Really lazy. Been adjusting to a new med, so been a bit out of it today.
I’ve been out and about the past few days though, so I’m okay with having a lazy day.

How has your day been?

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 09:07 PM

I hope the side effects of the med settle soon and you find it beneficial. Take care of yourself.

I visited my friend in hospital today, was stressful. Really glad to be home.

Sketchy 13-12-2017 09:09 PM


That’s good of you to visit your friend. Maybe you can do something nice now and reward yourself.

Cacoethes 13-12-2017 09:11 PM

Thanks guys!!
No relaxing for me unfortunately!
Stupid sociology assignment.

Lazy days are good lorraine!
You've been quite busy lately!

I hope you manage to de stress now Lindsay!

Sketchy 13-12-2017 09:15 PM

I hope your assignment goes well Beckie. You sound very busy. I hope you are taking breaks too.

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 09:21 PM

You always have so much to do Beckie, hope you're getting enough time to unwind.

I've got nothing planned tonight, not that I ever do, so I'm going to take it easy.

Cacoethes 13-12-2017 09:27 PM

Thank you!
Once I get this assignment done then I can relax a bit.
My brain just does not want to cooperate!

Taking it easy sounds like a good plan.

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 09:28 PM

Brains can misbehave a lot.

Sketchy 13-12-2017 09:52 PM

My brain often misbehaves.

I really want a Diet Coke or diet irn bru, but I have none. I’ll get some at the shop tomorrow.

Cacoethes 13-12-2017 09:54 PM

They can indeed!

Thats a shame you don't have any Lorraine!
Im running low on diet coke!

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 09:54 PM

That's one of the worst things ever really craving some kind of food/drink and not having it in! I'm feeling like eating something sweet in general but I'm not venturing out in the snow. Is it snowing where you are Lorraine? It's finally started here.

Sketchy 13-12-2017 09:57 PM

I had some water. Really thirsty today.

What’s everyone’s plans tomorrow? I’m doing the last of my Christmas shopping. Thankfully I don’t need to go to town. There is an area near me with plenty of shops and gift shops, some really nice shops. I’ll go for a coffee too.

Sketchy 13-12-2017 09:58 PM

Nope, not snowing here.

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 09:59 PM

Bet you'll be glad to have your shopping finished. I hope you get everything you need and you enjoy your coffee.

I'm not sure what I'm doing tomorrow. I have no concrete plans.

Sketchy 13-12-2017 10:00 PM

I’ll be so relieved to get it done. Christmas shopping is so stressful.

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 10:11 PM

I agree.

I'm so hungry right now but don't have any snacks in and don't like to eat much at this time of the night. There's a new dessert place opened near me and I really need to try it because it looks soooo good. Think I would go in and not know what to say though as they have things like waffles and you choose your own toppings and ice cream and sauce.

Sketchy 13-12-2017 10:18 PM

You should treat yourself one day Lindsay. It sounds nice.

one_step_closer 13-12-2017 10:21 PM

I'm a bit anxious about making a mistake in ordering or something, but I will definitely need to try it.

Sketchy 13-12-2017 10:23 PM

That’s understandable, but they will help you if you are unsure.

Cacoethes 14-12-2017 10:08 AM

Morning guys

one_step_closer 14-12-2017 12:20 PM

Morning. How is everyone today?

not_so_insig 14-12-2017 12:54 PM

Hi there! I'm not so good how are you?

Cacoethes 14-12-2017 02:43 PM

Im ok.
College is now done until Januaray!
Still got a ton of work to do though :(
Currently sitting in a cafe with a caramel latte waiting for the pharmacist to come back so i can finally get my meds!!

Sorry you're not feeling great Dawn.

How are you Lindsay?

one_step_closer 14-12-2017 04:40 PM

Sorry you're not so good Dawn, hope you feel better soon.

Beckie, will that take a little bit of the pressure off? I know how much work college can involve even when you don't have classes.

I'm ok, had a review with my support worker and although parts of it showed that I have very little hope for the future there were some ok points and it's always good to have a chat with my support worker anyway.

Sketchy 14-12-2017 05:59 PM

Hi all.

Sorry you are not too good Dawn.

I’m glad parts of your meeting went well Lindsay.

Buttons. 14-12-2017 06:04 PM

Sorry you're not so good Dawn.

Hope you enjoyed your latte Beckie.

Sorry it was a mixed visit with your support worker Lins but glad you can focus on the postives (and if in doubt eat some more chocolate :)

I'm really tired but got a lot of stuff done although dog is still sulking because I took her to the regular park where dogs aren't allowed off lead rather than the dog park :P

Buttons. 14-12-2017 06:05 PM

Hi Lorraine :)

Sketchy 14-12-2017 06:06 PM

I hope your doggy cheers up soon. Can you give her a treat?

Buttons. 14-12-2017 06:09 PM

Ha ha she's had her food and a treat. I think she's prolonged the sulk because it's raining so when I let her out in the garden she gives me a look like 'why would you make rain?' :P

Sketchy 14-12-2017 06:12 PM

Very cruel of you to make it rain!

It’s pouring down here too. I’m in Morrisons cafe. I’m heading home soon. I came in for chocolates and selection boxes to put in with Christmas presents.

Buttons. 14-12-2017 06:14 PM

I know right how dare I not control the weather :p

Sounds nice you've bought some chocolatey things are you having a drink in the cafe?

Sketchy 14-12-2017 06:18 PM

I’m having a Diet Coke and a sandwich. I missed lunch, so it’s rather late and more like a dinner.

I just need to buy gift wrap and my friend wants new wine glasses, so I’ll get that on Monday or Tuesday and then I’m sorted. I even got my sister a wee present from the cat.

Argh, I remembered something else. I need to go back in. Aargh!!!

Buttons. 14-12-2017 06:20 PM

Ha ha I always forget something at the shops then am about to leave and like damn it I have to go back and do the whole till rigmarole again :P

That's cute about a present from the cat and I'm sure your friend will appreciate the wine glasses :)

not_so_insig 14-12-2017 06:54 PM

Yay! The parcel man has come with a present for myself. Just waiting for my tea to cook and then I can play with it. I wasn't expecting it to come considering that the regular post is delayed.

Sketchy 14-12-2017 07:02 PM

Yay Dawn. It’s always good to get a treat.

I’m finally home. Got a taxi home, so that was quick.

Eska 14-12-2017 07:48 PM

Evening all :) I am on my way home from work, tired as we were pretty busy today.

Sketchy 14-12-2017 07:49 PM

Hi Eska. Did you have a good day at work?

one_step_closer 14-12-2017 08:02 PM

Hope you're all having a relaxing evening.

Eska 14-12-2017 08:02 PM

It was a pretty good day, yes. We have a nice team.

Sketchy 14-12-2017 08:03 PM

Hi Lindsay, how are you?

Glad you had a good day Eska.

not_so_insig 14-12-2017 08:28 PM

I had the rest of my rice pudding today as I made it yesterday. I made it in the slow cooker. Now I feel stuffed and it was nicer than the tinned stuff. It was also very filling and warming as that's what you need in the cold weather.

I still have snow but that's slowly disappearing. The biggest problem is that it's slippery outdoors where I am.

Sketchy 14-12-2017 08:30 PM

That sounds tasty Dawn.

I hope you are careful when you are out.

not_so_insig 14-12-2017 08:36 PM

I am only going out to the bins. I wouldn't do that except for the fact that I have used litter every day and having in the flat isn't very hygienic. I keep on taking my time and I am not going very far.

Sketchy 14-12-2017 09:19 PM

Taking your time is a good idea.

I think we’re supposed to get snow during the night, but they’ve been saying that for a while.

What’s everyone up to? I might watch a film. The back to the future films have been put on Netflix.
