I hope you both get your things fixed.

How was the jumbalya? I had pasta.

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 09:18 PM

The jumbalya was good thanks. It's my favourite thing to cook!
Pasta sounds good!
What are you up to?
I'm watching x men now. I love all these films.

Sketchy 29-01-2017 09:21 PM

I was watching my mad fat diary box sets on the 4 app thingy. Think I'll watch some more for a bit.
There's quite a lot of x men films now aren't there?

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 09:30 PM

I like my mad fat diary. I haven't watched it since it came out on TV. It's a good series!

I think there are 8 or 9 x men films so far!
They're all like sequels then prequels so I don't know which order they go in. It's quite confusing!

Sketchy 29-01-2017 09:33 PM

That must be confusing. I hope you enjoy it though. It's something I never got into.

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 09:55 PM

I am enjoying it. I haven't seen all the x men films yet I don't think. Need to download them I think!

What kind of films do you like?

Sketchy 29-01-2017 10:32 PM

I like lots of films, especially if Benedict Cumberbatch is in them. I also like nostalgia from the 80s, like old Winona rider films like heathers and mermaids.

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 10:42 PM

Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant!
I haven't watched many 80's films I don't think!
I like action and fantasy films. Not a huge fan of mushy romantic type stuff!

Sketchy 29-01-2017 10:46 PM

Nah, I'm not a fan of mushy stuff either.

not_so_insig 29-01-2017 10:50 PM

I am not too keen on super heroes stuff. I prefer a good drama on tv. In fact I am trying to think other than HP, Frozen, Northern Soul the film, Santa Claus the movie and From Time to Time what films I possess in my dvd collection. Oh and The Railway Children.

Cacoethes 29-01-2017 10:51 PM

I remember the railway children. I had it on video.

I'm off to bed now guys! Good night and sleep well :)

Sketchy 29-01-2017 11:04 PM

Good night. I'm off to sleep soon too.

Sketchy 29-01-2017 11:04 PM

Oh, and hello Dawn. How are you?

not_so_insig 29-01-2017 11:59 PM

Actually I own the following films: The Wizard of Oz, Flight of the white stallions, The Rocky Horror Show, To Sir With Love, Beauty and the Beast, Marley and Me, Paddington, International Velvet, Black Beauty, Brideshead Revisited, Seabiscuit, Finding Nemo, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, The Last Unicorn in addition to what I have previously mentioned. All the rest of my dvd collection is mostly dramas with a few sitcoms and animations.

Buttons. 30-01-2017 04:23 AM

I haven't seen Railway children in so long-loved it as a kid though!!

I'm a bit of an X-men obsessive-the films tend to be good comics are good as well :)

not_so_insig 30-01-2017 12:15 PM

I have both the 1970s and the 2000 version of The Railway Children on dvd. I have the 1960s version on my amazon wishlist.

I received a letter from the dvla saying that they have written to my psych and expect a reply within 6 weeks. I am glad that they have written to him (even though they can't spell his name) because he was the one that cleared me to start driving and also he knows me better than the gp.

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 12:43 PM

Morning all!

I sent off my driving license application last week. Hopefully it won't be too long until my psych and neuro get the forms back!

not_so_insig 30-01-2017 01:23 PM

I hope that I can start driving in March. Hopefully my psych will respond quickly and that it will reach him as they spelt his name wrong! His name ends in ghi and they wrote omi!

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 01:42 PM

I don't know how to spell my psychs name! I just Googled what I thought it sounded like and used what Google suggested!

Serendipity. 30-01-2017 01:59 PM

Lol Beckie! I think I might have called the CMHT to check :P

Yay for driving! I'm going to start driving lessons again soon but I think I'll just wait until after I move in a couple of weeks.

not_so_insig 30-01-2017 02:02 PM

I can only spell my psych ' s surname can't pronounce it! Everyone calls him by his first name even the professionals in the cmht!

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 04:23 PM

Couldn't be bothered to phone the cmht. I'm sure I got it probably right. They'll know who it means anyway :p

Driving lessons sound good Hannah!

I've just cleaned the house which I've been meaning to do for ages! And lit a nice scented candle too :)
And I got an email from mu English teacher saying I've passed my English reading exam so yay! :-D

Serendipity. 30-01-2017 04:33 PM

Well done Beckie, that's great!! :D Yay for clean house and scented candle too :)

Buttons. 30-01-2017 04:43 PM

Well done all :)

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 04:47 PM

Thanks guys :)

How have you all been?

[Luna] 30-01-2017 04:47 PM

Well done Beckie,
How is everyone?

Buttons. 30-01-2017 04:50 PM

Well done Beckie <3

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 04:55 PM

Thank you both :)

I'm ok thanks Luna! How are you?
And how are you Katy?

chinahorse 30-01-2017 04:56 PM

Hallo :)

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 05:10 PM

Hi Lillie! How are you?

[Luna] 30-01-2017 05:13 PM

Hai Lillie!

not_so_insig 30-01-2017 05:13 PM

Well done Beckie.

I have had a text from the washing machine people. They are coming early so to bed early tonight for me. No precise time but the engineer is going to phone me when he's nearby. Fingers crossed that I can have it fixed tomorrow.

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 05:18 PM

Thanks Dawn :)

Hope you manage to get your washing machine fixed tomorrow! It's such a pain being without a washing machine.

not_so_insig 30-01-2017 05:20 PM

Thanks Beckie.

Sketchy 30-01-2017 05:57 PM

Beckie, well done on your exam. Your hard work has paid off and you deserve it.

Dawn, I hope you get your washing machine fixed.


How is everyone today? I've been out shopping and for lunch with my sister.

chinahorse 30-01-2017 06:13 PM

Hi guys.

Hope you get your washing machine fixed dawn.

Lorraine sounds like a nice day.

not_so_insig 30-01-2017 06:14 PM

I am ok thanks Lorraine. I haven't done much today though.

chinahorse 30-01-2017 06:16 PM

I'm exhausted. I've had 3 lots of therapy. At least I got some travel reimbursed and have Pepsi max. Still got to cook for everyone though.

not_so_insig 30-01-2017 06:16 PM

Also thanks Lillie (I think that is your name chinahorse).

Sketchy 30-01-2017 06:20 PM

That does sound exhausting Lillie. I hope you are ok. What are you cooking?

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 06:46 PM

Thanks Lorraine :)

Did you enjoy your day Lorraine? Shopping and lunch sounds nice :)

That does sound exhausting Lillie. Hopefully you'll be able to rest a bit after dinner. You definitely deserve a break after all that!

Sketchy 30-01-2017 09:59 PM

I did thank you. We weren't out long, but it was nice and the city centre wasn't too chaotic.

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 10:16 PM

Sounds good. It's always nice when the city centre isn't too manic!

I'm just watching family guy with a nice hot chocolate.
2 more exams to get through. Think i'm going to dye my hair this weekend as a bit of a treat for getting through them.

Sketchy 30-01-2017 10:58 PM

That sounds nice.

What colour are you dying your hair. I've had mine pink, red, blue and purple, but now I'm back to brown. I'm dying it black though this week some time.
You definitely deserve a treat.

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 11:07 PM

I want to dye it purple, but I don't think it will go very purple as my hair is dyed brown at the moment.
I've had red hair and pink hair and once I had it blue, purple, red and pink at the same time! I quite liked that!
But the brown has faded quite a lot so hopefully the purple will show up a bit!

Sketchy 30-01-2017 11:10 PM

I hope it works out. I miss my pink hair, but I had to give it a rest after years of bright colours. I had to bleach it because my natural hair colour is brown, so it's time for a rest.

Cacoethes 30-01-2017 11:15 PM

Thanks.
All the colouring and bleaching really does take its toll on hair!
I'm naturally blonde and would like to go back to blonde, but I've dyed it so much over the years that I'll never be able dye it blonde, I'd have to grow it out completely which would take forever and it would look awful!
So I'm just sticking to dying it.

I'm off to bed now. Night night and sleep well! :)

Sketchy 30-01-2017 11:16 PM

Night night and sleep well.

Buttons. 31-01-2017 12:54 AM

Hope the dying goes well :) last time I dyed my hair it was a mixture of purple and red didn't think would work but worked out about :)...not sure I'll ever be able to go back to brown though.

Hope everyone sleeps well x

chinahorse 31-01-2017 07:12 AM

Morning all :)

I slept for all of 6 hours booo. I'm so sleep deprived.

And I managed to book two of the sane train journey. So more adulting to sort that out. I suck majorly.
