Morning :)

FabulousMike 05-07-2017 10:52 AM

Top of the morning.

How are we all?

Buttons. 05-07-2017 10:55 AM

I've just had the revelation that it is Wednesday not Thursday and therefore unusually I have no appointments so don't need to make self look presentable :P

FabulousMike 05-07-2017 10:56 AM

I hate it when that happens!

Buttons. 05-07-2017 11:00 AM

Ah but I've caught it before I started getting ready so it's like win I have zilch to do *flops back on sofa*

FabulousMike 05-07-2017 11:17 AM

Lol! Nothing to do days are the best!

chinahorse 05-07-2017 11:27 AM

Yay for not having to look presentable but boo to nothing to do.

I'm going to dye my hair to keep me out of mischief.

Buttons. 05-07-2017 11:28 AM

Indeed. Just watching America's got talent. Watched little girl do an epic version of Celine Dion, had urge to sing heart will go on dramtically-conclusion: I am not Celine Dion.

Buttons. 05-07-2017 11:29 AM

Tbh Lillie I feel like I need one of those days of nothing to do just to regroup a bit.

Dying hair sounds like a poa, what colour?

Shy_Bambi 05-07-2017 01:03 PM

Good afternoon all :)

Edit: decided to let my cat say hi and this is what she says:

Ilunchth l.y2k.k.

:D I think it means hello xD

chinahorse 05-07-2017 01:44 PM

Hi kitty cat :)

Lol Katy I don't think many of us are Celines.

Decided I cba to dye my hair today.

Shy_Bambi 05-07-2017 02:30 PM

I've always wanted to dye my hair purple. But like, tinted purple. My hair is dark brown, so like, it goes purple in the sun if that makes sense. I've never seen that in the shops though and even if I did I'm not brave enough!

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 04:52 PM

Hey guys.
It is sooooo hot!!

Shy_Bambi 05-07-2017 05:07 PM

I've had my fan on since I woke up, it is very hot!! We're way overdue a thunder storm

How are you Beckie?

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 05:19 PM

Im ok thanks!
Hate this weather though!
There are sooo many bugs around!!

How are you?

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 05:23 PM

Although i did sleep funny so now my neck and shoulder are killing!!

Shy_Bambi 05-07-2017 05:23 PM

Ugh I hate the flies!! Especially those big black ones that you can hear buzzing but can't see them!

I'm okay. Just munching on peanuts and putting things up on eBay. I'm getting take away later yay!

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 05:30 PM

Exactly!!
I had my Windows open for a bit but i kept hearing flies so had to close them.
Ive got all these really tiny bugs all over me too. Its awful!

Yay for takeaway! What are you getting?

Shy_Bambi 05-07-2017 05:37 PM

Oh that sounds really icky! I have a plug that emits a high pitched sound which gets rid of flies and moths. It works for me, so maybe you could get one of them. It says it's a 'pest repeller electro magnetic' we don't have one in the hallway and that seems to be where the flies have gathered for their secret meetings or whatever it is they do!

I think I might get either fish and chips or pizza. Haven't decided yet!

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 05:53 PM

I had no idea that kind of gadget exisits!
I'll definitely have to look into that!

Both good choices!!

Eska 05-07-2017 06:18 PM

Hello peeps! May I join this conversation? I have too many words and no one to talk to at the moment!

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 06:19 PM

Hi Eska!!
I know that feeling! Lol
You are more than welcome here!

Sketchy 05-07-2017 06:42 PM

Hello all. Welcome to the thread Eska.

I've had a nice lazy day. I stayed overnight at my sister's flat and had a long lie and then lunch at hers. We then went to the local pub for two drinks and I'm now back in my flat. It's handy our flats being 4 doors away. I had planned to do lots of house work but I suppose I can do that tomorrow. Too tired now.

How is everyone?

Eska 05-07-2017 06:42 PM

Hi! Are you up to much today? I just got back from a walk in the sunshine :D

Sketchy 05-07-2017 06:48 PM

A walk in the sunshine sounds good. It's warm here but a bit cloudy.

Eska 05-07-2017 06:49 PM

Sketchy that sounds like a great day! And super convenient to live so close, my sister is at the other end of the country so I don't see her that much although I visit when I can.

I'm good! Making happy playlists right now, went into town this morning and bought new walking boots and then cooked fajitas for lunch, which all makes it a super productive day by my standards!

ETA: Oh and I dyed half my hair purple!

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 06:50 PM

That sounds lovely Lorraine!
I was considering going to the pub today but didn't.

A walk sounds lovely Eska!

Im watching Spongebob.

Eska 05-07-2017 06:51 PM

I've... never seen Spongebob.

Sketchy 05-07-2017 06:54 PM

Hope you are enjoying sponge bob. I've never actually watched it.

Fajitas sound yummy Eska. Yay to purple hair. I bet it looks nice. I have pink hair.

Shy_Bambi 05-07-2017 06:57 PM

Purple hair dye must be awesome Eska! I've always wanted to dye my hair purple!!

That sounds like a lovely day Lorraine! Chilling out for the rest of the day sounds like a good plan to me!

Sketchy 05-07-2017 07:00 PM

I have a cheek to chill out since it's been such a lazy day, but those two drinks have made me tired.

not_so_insig 05-07-2017 07:03 PM

I have had a interesting day. First of all I went swimming before and the fire alarm went off whilst I was in there. Not once but twice. They evacuated everyone out of the pool the first time. I felt vulnerable standing outside in just my swimming costume. I am just glad that it's not winter! The second time I was in the changing room and I just stood there waiting for people to go out of the building but nobody did so I waited for the alarm to stop then got dressed.

Then I had a different nurse to do my depot except the depot wouldn't come out of the needle! The nurse tried her best but it refused to come out. It was the first time it happened to us both. So she had to give up so goodness knows when I will get my depot. Unfortunately she didn't have any spare medication to try again.

Eska 05-07-2017 07:03 PM

Sketchy pink hair sounds brilliant! Mine isn't super obvious because my hair is a mid-brown to start with so it's come out more subtle than super bright (enough that my dad hasn't noticed yet lol). Nothing wrong with chilling out, especially if you're tired - we all need lazy days sometimes.

Shy Bambi --- do itttttt it's great!

Sketchy 05-07-2017 07:10 PM

Dawn, that's a shame about the swimming. I know you enjoy a swim. Are you going back again soon?

Eska, my hair is brown too, but I dyed my hair blonde first so the pink is really bright.

Eska 05-07-2017 07:13 PM

Dawn (is it ok if I call you that?) - definitely a shame about the swimming! Sounds like a bit of a strange day all round... I hope you have a lovely evening though and that your depot gets sorted :)

Sketchy, I wouldn't be brave enough to do that! It sounds sweet as though.

Sketchy 05-07-2017 07:16 PM

It's probably sensible not to. My hair is rather dry from lightening it. You can call me Lorraine if you like.

not_so_insig 05-07-2017 07:20 PM

Yes I am going swimming next week hopefully. It didn't bother me too much as the first time I was in the jacuzzi so I had finished my swim. Just felt vulnerable because my scars were showing. I was worried how I was going home because my keys and bus pass were in the locker. But we were only outside for about 5 minutes.

chinahorse 05-07-2017 07:23 PM

Hey guys :)

What have I missed out on? I've been big a make up model all afternoon.

Sketchy 05-07-2017 07:34 PM

Hi Lillie. You were a make up model? Sounds fun.

chinahorse 05-07-2017 07:36 PM

It was fun but sadly the college supplied crap make up which set off my super sensitive eyes. Still the tutor was like good practice for them working around the watering lol

Sketchy 05-07-2017 07:38 PM

That's a shame it irritated your eyes. Did you get any useful tips?

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 07:41 PM

Sounds fun Lillie! Shame about the eye watering though

Whats everyone up to?

chinahorse 05-07-2017 07:42 PM

I did yes lots about blending and contouring.

I'm cooking the first meal I will have since Erm Wednesday. In my defence I have just had many snacks.

Sketchy 05-07-2017 07:44 PM

Well done on cooking. What you making? I just had a quorn cottage pie.

Eska 05-07-2017 07:45 PM

Aw Lillie, that's unfortunate! I'm glad it was generally fun though. (Edit - unfortunate about the make-up, not the cooking! The cooking sounds good :) )


I am making a happy playlist :) Anyone recommend any songs for me?

Sketchy 05-07-2017 07:45 PM

I'm not up to much. Being lazy.

Sketchy 05-07-2017 07:47 PM

A happy playlist sounds a good plan. I can't think of any songs. I like rock music. I like making playlists for walking or when I panic on my iPod.

Eska 05-07-2017 07:48 PM

Question: how do I get the little mood box thingy under my username?

Cacoethes 05-07-2017 07:49 PM

The cooking sounds good lillie!

Happy playlist is cool!
I like many different kinds of music but the happy ones are usually like ones with an awesome bass drop or fast rock music if that makes sense!
