Will you have a relaxing night after the cinema do you think?

Sketchy 06-10-2017 06:38 PM

Cinema was last night, so I’ll definitely have a chilled night tonight. I’ll do some sewing while my sister knits.

You up to much this evening?

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 06:45 PM

Not really, probably after dinner get an early night, watch a couple of short stories on YouTube maybe.

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 06:49 PM

I watch quite a few Japanese short films, because I like hearing the language.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 07:00 PM

Sounds good. I’ll probably get an early night too. My sister has just poured me a gin and tonic.

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 07:07 PM

sounds nice, I've only drunk gin about 3 times in my life, didn't like the taste, or any spirits, I just drink cider, when I've been to Spain I drank some white wine or lager, but only a bit, they don't serve cider in Spain, & I only really like cider.

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 07:13 PM

Actually, come to think of it, a friend & I went to Spain 15 months ago, & there was a mini-bar in the hotel room, with small bottles of spirits & cans of lager, we got a bit drunk, a huge TV, very stylish hotel, with a conference room & people in smart suits, & us 2 English scruff boxes turned up.:-p A good few days.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 07:14 PM

I do quite like gin. My sister isn’t drinking though. She’s doing dry October to raise money for charity.

I’m not keen on cider, although I like the mixed fruit ones.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 07:14 PM

That sounds a good few days. Merry too.

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 07:20 PM

It was, the hotels are a lot cheaper over there, even the stylish ones, we had a great time, took the ferry, 20 hours to Spain, it was great, bars, restaurants, entertainment, it was during Euro 2016, he said he'd like to do it again, good friend of mine, but he died, went to his funeral 6 months ago.

I went back to Spain on the Ferry, stayed in the same hotel, went to the same bar that he liked, just after the funeral, imagined him with me there in spirit.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 07:22 PM

I’m so sorry about your friend. It must be so upsetting, but it’s nice you went back. You’ll have good memories of your visit with him.

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 07:27 PM

I'm so glad I got to go to Spain with him, it was a nice time, I'll always remember it.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 07:29 PM

It sounds like you both had a good time.

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 07:30 PM

I doubt whether I'll ever go back to Spain again, been there so many times, probably France next time, learn some French.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 07:33 PM

I’ve been to the north of France. It was lovely. I know enough of the language to get by. I did French as one of my highers (Scottish equivalent to a level). I’ve forgotten a lot of it because it was so long ago.

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 07:35 PM

On a trip with school? I did that when I was 14, to Normandy.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 07:40 PM

No I was 19 when I went. I’m 35 now.

Buttons. 06-10-2017 07:41 PM

I still maintain this 35 is a lie Lorraine-judging on pics you can only be 21/

*waves* hello hope everybody is well :)

Sketchy 06-10-2017 07:42 PM

Katy I actually love you for that comment!! Thank you.

How are you Katy?

Buttons. 06-10-2017 08:00 PM

Well I mean it-I genuinely thought you were either same age as me or younger!

I'm ha ha...erm alive?

Sketchy 06-10-2017 08:02 PM

You star!

Keep going Katy. You can get through this! You aren’t alone here.

Buttons. 06-10-2017 08:10 PM

You're awesome <3

Cpt_Stunning 06-10-2017 08:16 PM

I didn't know you put a picture of yourself on here Lorraine, I've seen pictures of UnanimousAnonymous & not so insig, but not of you.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 08:20 PM

Thanks Katy. You are awesome too.

Chris my picture is in there somewhere. You’ll spot the pink hair if you see any pictures.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 10:37 PM

Anyone doing anything exciting?

I’m at my sister’s sewing. Think I’ll stop for tonight soon.

tiptoes 06-10-2017 10:41 PM

I'm trying to find something to watch to distract me from my feelings.

How are you doing? What are you sewing?

not_so_insig 06-10-2017 10:42 PM

No I am just watching tv Lorraine. I am going for a shower later.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 10:44 PM

I hope you find something to watch. TV can be a good distraction. Hope you are ok. I’m sewing a bag.

What you watching Dawn?

not_so_insig 06-10-2017 10:46 PM

I am watching Classic Who Wants to be a millionaire.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 10:48 PM

I hope you enjoy it.

What’s everyone up to this weekend? I don’t know what I’m going.

not_so_insig 06-10-2017 10:50 PM

I am going out on Sunday but I dunno where yet.

tiptoes 06-10-2017 10:51 PM


Enjoy who wants to be a millionaire Dawn, and I hope you have a good time on Sunday.

I dunno what I am doing either, I think I need a quiet weekend :)

Sketchy 06-10-2017 10:53 PM

Hope you go somewhere nice.

A quiet weekend sounds good. I think I’ll do the same. Urgh, I have housework to do though.

Deborrah 06-10-2017 10:55 PM

Sorry I poofed for a few days. My health got pretty bad.

How is everyone?

not_so_insig 06-10-2017 10:55 PM

That's the downside of living alone nobody to do your cleaning.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 10:56 PM

I hope you are ok Sibe. Are you feeling any better?

I’m ok thanks.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 10:57 PM

That’s true Dawn.

Deborrah 06-10-2017 11:00 PM

I'm a bit better now, but my muscles hurt a lot. I think I might have some sort of flu.

Anything interesting happen over the week?

Edit: This is Sibe; I changed my username. :)

Sketchy 06-10-2017 11:15 PM

What would you like us to call you? The cold and flu is going around. I’m just recovering from a cold.

I’m having a chilled weekend but sadly I have housework to do.

Deborrah 06-10-2017 11:37 PM

You can just call me Mori or Morgaine. :)

I won't have a chilled weekend; we are painting the house so everything's a mess!

Sketchy 06-10-2017 11:45 PM

Hi Mori. I hope the house painting goes well. It’s always chaotic but will be worth it when it’s done.

Sketchy 06-10-2017 11:56 PM

I’m going to sleep now. Good night. Hope you sleep well.

Deborrah 07-10-2017 12:00 AM

Sleep well Lorraine :)

Shy_Bambi 07-10-2017 05:30 AM

My cat woke me up and now I can't get back to sleep *cries* ;__;

Sketchy 07-10-2017 11:16 AM

Oh no. Poor Rebecca.

Good morning everyone.

Shy_Bambi 07-10-2017 11:47 AM

Hello Lorraine! I hope you slept well, how are you?

not_so_insig 07-10-2017 11:52 AM

Morning all.

I have received my psych appointment through the post. The bad news is that it's dead early. I can't get up early even with a alarum clock so I will have to ask for an later appointment. All my psych appointments have always been in the afternoon so I am confused why it's in the morning.

Sketchy 07-10-2017 11:56 AM

I’m ok thanks Rebecca.

I hope you get it changed Dawn.

How is everyone?

not_so_insig 07-10-2017 12:10 PM

Yes. The good news is that according to the letter it's with my regular psych. He has been on a sabbatical so I didn't want to see a locum. Originally I was supposed to have an appointment this month which is highly strange because I last saw my psych in December. So it's in November which is not quite a year and also i only know the Italian for one year! I speak Italian to my psych.

Shy_Bambi 07-10-2017 12:34 PM

That sounds like my social worker dawn. I keep telling her I don't want times near when the kids leave school but the appointments are always around 3 so I always have panic attacks. She knows I can't use the phone so I think that's why she does it, she knows I can't change it. Very cruel.
