Amy, thank you so much. That was really kind of you and it has given me a boost. I came home and did another task, and I have put the washing machine on, so now I'm allowing myself to relax so I don't feel worse for it tomorrow. I need to accept doing too much makes me feel exhausted, but feel good for doing what I can.
Well done on completing your second task.

Thank you Katy.

Thank you Beckie. I hope you enjoyed your risotto. You must be a good cook, because you always seem to be making exciting dishes. That's a shame about your charger. Must be frustrating.

Wonderland. 08-02-2017 08:10 PM

Haha, you were the one who did me the favor :) glad you got a bit more done.

Butternut squash risotto is tasty stuff! Woe at no charger, maybe you will have to erm, get a life? :-p

Hannah how are you?

Sketchy 08-02-2017 08:12 PM

Glad to be of help. :)

Serendipity. 08-02-2017 08:17 PM

I am good thanks Amy. Tired though! How are you?

Well done Lorraine :) How are you this evening?

Sketchy 08-02-2017 08:22 PM

Thanks Hannah. I'm struggling, but had a little boost for having achieved something today, given I struggled to leave my bed. I'm going to decide what to watch and relax now.

What are you up to? I hope you can get some rest.

Cacoethes 08-02-2017 08:28 PM

There's so many amazing slimming world recipes so I try to vary what I cook and I like trying new things. It always turns out well so I reckon I'm a decent cook!

Amy, I don't even know what to do with myself! I need to get a hobby or something!

Well done for all you've accomplished today Lorraine :)

Hi Hannah!

Wonderland. 08-02-2017 08:41 PM


Read a book or something Bex.

Glad to hear you are doing well Hannah :)

Sounds like a good plan Lorraine!

I've finished all my tasks, so thats pretty awesome.

Cacoethes 08-02-2017 08:45 PM

Yep,definitely first world problems!!
I could try reading. I used to love reading but my concentration just got too bad.

Yay for finishing your tasks!

Sketchy 08-02-2017 08:45 PM

Well done Amy. That is awesome.

I've written my list for tomorrow. It's a small one, but if I do more then that is great, if not then I've at least done set tasks.

Wonderland. 08-02-2017 09:01 PM

Thats a really positive way to look at Lorraine :)

I'm the same with books, but with some practice you can gain some of that concentration back.

Cacoethes 08-02-2017 09:01 PM

That sounds like a good plan Lorraine :)

I've got a book that I want to read. I'll try and give it a go!

Sketchy 08-02-2017 10:50 PM

Thanks Amy.

Beckie, I hope you enjoy your book.

Buttons. 09-02-2017 05:42 AM

Glad everyone is being productive :)

[Luna] 09-02-2017 09:55 AM

Good morning lovelies, did everyone sleep well?

tiptoes 09-02-2017 10:59 AM


How are you??

[Luna] 09-02-2017 11:01 AM

Very tired. Just getting ready to go to the doctors. How are you?

tiptoes 09-02-2017 11:03 AM

I am great thanks!

Being tired sucks, I have spare energy here is a little box of it [_]. I hope the doctors goes ok.

[Luna] 09-02-2017 11:05 AM

Nice, thank you :) I'm glad you're feeling good! What are you plans for today?

tiptoes 09-02-2017 11:09 AM

You're welcome :)

I have uni work to do! Yawn!!

[Luna] 09-02-2017 11:10 AM

What do you study? *Sprinkles motivation glitter*

tiptoes 09-02-2017 11:18 AM

Its not so much that I don't want to do the work there are just much more exciting things I would rather be doing!!

[Luna] 09-02-2017 11:36 AM

Could you reward yourself after doing some work with something fun?

tiptoes 09-02-2017 11:41 AM

That is a good idea!! I might just do that! In the meantime I'm going for fun ways of making notes! haha!

How is your day looking?

Cacoethes 09-02-2017 12:31 PM

Morning guys!
Just found out I passed my maths exam! Soooo happy!

tiptoes 09-02-2017 12:40 PM

Yay!! You rock Beckie!!

Buttons. 09-02-2017 01:01 PM

So happy for you Beckie :)

Wonderland. 09-02-2017 01:21 PM

Knew you would Bex! You are so awesome :)

Cacoethes 09-02-2017 04:10 PM

Thanks guys!! :-D

How are we all this afternoon?

Wonderland. 09-02-2017 04:16 PM

I hope it's given you a boost lovely :)

I'm about to nip out to get some groceries, boring adult stuff. Boo. Surprised my mum earlier by telling her I wanted to take her out on valentines day wherever she wanted as it's the first one without dad. She's proper chuffed.

Have you got anything going on this afternoon/evening?

Cacoethes 09-02-2017 04:23 PM

It really has :)

That's a really lovely idea! I hope you a both enjoy yourself.

I've not got anything on. Just chilling and will have a look through my level 2 maths book to get an idea of what I'm up against!

Wonderland. 09-02-2017 04:32 PM

I'm glad to hear it :) when are you starting the level 2?

Thanks, we're both singletons so may as well have a mum and daughter day :)

tiptoes 09-02-2017 04:36 PM

Oh that it is such a lovely idea Ames. I hope you both have a lovely time.

I hope you have written somewhere large and colourful "I CAN do Maths!!!" Beckie!

Chilling and preparing sounds a good plan.

I'm still chipping away at uni work. I would be going a lot faster if I wasn't so distractable! oh well!

Wonderland. 09-02-2017 04:44 PM

And an even more epic sign that says "**** THE DOUBTERS ESPECIALLY THE ONES IN MY HEAD BECAUSE I CAN DO MATH!"

Distractions are so annoying, is it anything you can tune out with music? Like annoying humans!

Cacoethes 09-02-2017 04:51 PM

Haha! I should make a sign! It would probably help me when im doubting myself!
I started the level 2 today, the exam will be in June.

Distractions are annoying! At least you're chipping away at it!

tiptoes 09-02-2017 04:52 PM

I think it is more me than my surroundings!! Some of them have gone to a meeting so I'm back in my corner and trying to get stuck back into work!

I agree with Amy's sign!

how is your afternoon looking?

Cacoethes 09-02-2017 05:08 PM

Oh dear!! Can you try and give yourself breaks? It might be better than having one long chunk of time working!

I'm just trying to warm up atm! It is very cold!

[Luna] 09-02-2017 05:11 PM

Hi guys.

Cacoethes 09-02-2017 05:17 PM

Hi Luna! How are you?

[Luna] 09-02-2017 05:19 PM

Very tired. How are you Beckie love?

Cacoethes 09-02-2017 05:30 PM

Hope you're managing to get some rest <3

I'm good thanks my dear

[Luna] 09-02-2017 05:41 PM

How's your day been going?

Sketchy 09-02-2017 06:12 PM

Hi everyone.

Beckie, well done on passing your maths. Awesome!!

Amy, that is a lovely idea for Valentine's .

I've just did one of my tasks and will do another task later. The third task on my list was to go for a walk, but I didn't make it out today. Can't face the world today. I need to go out tomorrow, so I'll not hide away then.

[Luna] 09-02-2017 06:35 PM

Well done for getting one of your tasks done love.

It's soooo cold today.

Wonderland. 09-02-2017 06:43 PM

I agree Luna, rather nippy indeed! I'm all wrapped up in my fluffy dressing gown.

Try not to beat yourself up about not getting out today Lorraine, you are trying super hard and that is what counts. Good job for managing a couple of tasks even though you are struggling <3

[Luna] 09-02-2017 06:55 PM

It snowed very lightly earlier. Apparently we're supposed to be getting snow again. Brr!!

Sketchy 09-02-2017 06:55 PM

Thank you both.

It certainly is cold. I have the heating on and still feel cold. I hope everyone heats up soon.

[Luna] 09-02-2017 07:01 PM

Can't wait for the summer. Tired of always being cold.

Cacoethes 09-02-2017 07:04 PM

Thanks Lorraine :)

It is indeed freezing today!

[Luna] 09-02-2017 07:06 PM

I'm watching some weird documentary about selfies. There's a girl that takes 1000 selfies a day!

Wonderland. 09-02-2017 07:11 PM

Thats an insane amount!!! Over 40 each hour, not taking into account hours shes asleep.
