Sounds like you've had a good day Lorraine

Ive not done much really!

Cpt_Stunning 21-10-2017 05:35 PM

I've just been eating quite a bit, the storm's not really that bad.

Sketchy 21-10-2017 05:39 PM

Glad the storm isn’t that bad. It’s just raining off and on here. Bit of a miserable day.

Today has helped me a little bit and I’m trying to distract from all the mh stuff.

I’ve got my sewing stuff out now.

Cpt_Stunning 21-10-2017 05:46 PM

It's good that you have hobbies like that, I don't do anything creative, just watch movies, short films or documentaries on the net, mostly YouTube.

Sketchy 21-10-2017 06:01 PM

Maybe you can take up something creative? I used to work as an artist before I got too ill and taught workshops. I learned there is something creative for everyone. It’s just a case of finding it.

Cpt_Stunning 21-10-2017 06:09 PM

Not sure really, I just like seeing/watching stuff created by other people, I'm watching a Korean short movie, 30 mins long, on a site called viddsee.

Sketchy 21-10-2017 06:18 PM

I’ve yet to check out that site. I remember you mentioning it before, so I’m guessing it’s good.

Cacoethes 21-10-2017 06:21 PM

It's incredibly windy here

Cpt_Stunning 21-10-2017 06:23 PM

It is good, I watch movies on the Lifetime Movies site too. I hardly ever watch TV anymore, only in the morning when I have breakfast before work, about half an hour a day.

I'm not going to buy any cider tonight, not good for me, carry on eating, I've got spag bol in the fridge, then probably egg on toast.

Cpt_Stunning 21-10-2017 06:29 PM

It's really windy here too, I'm trying to resist the urge to buy cider, shop's 3 mins away walk closes at 10, probably will buy some.

Sketchy 21-10-2017 06:30 PM

Spag Bol sounds good. I’m not bothering with dinner, because I had a massive lunch. My dad took me to an Indian restaurant. It was tasty, but I’m so full now.

Sketchy 21-10-2017 06:30 PM

Are you trying to quit cider? Is there something you can have instead?

Cpt_Stunning 21-10-2017 06:35 PM

Nice food is what I have, in the freezer/fridge/cans in the cupboard, but cider's what I like the most.

I've got enough to keep me occupied this evening, I won't go to the shop tonight, but I will be there tomorrow to get cider.

Sketchy 21-10-2017 06:36 PM

Just think of the weather. That will put you off going to the shop.

not_so_insig 21-10-2017 06:55 PM

Funny enough despite wales supposedly hit hard it's not too bad. I am at my parents house now but I could watch tv through the dish before. I live in a windy spot so I was relieved.

Sketchy 21-10-2017 07:00 PM

Hope you have a nice evening at your parents Dawn.

Cacoethes 21-10-2017 07:26 PM

Its really annoying having one side of my curtain rail broken.
Means i cant close the curtains all the way and it makes me uncomfortable!

Sketchy 21-10-2017 07:31 PM

That is annoying. Is there any way you can get it fixed? I had to fix my sister’s because it was broken. She couldn’t do it because she’s scared of heights. It wasn’t easy because I’m short.

Cacoethes 21-10-2017 07:36 PM

I dont think I'll be able to fix it.
The screws on that side have come out of the ceiling and won't stay in.
Ive had to tape it up with cellotape so the rail doesn't hang down!
Hopefully my mum will be able to come over and sort it. Shes good at that sort of thing.

Sketchy 21-10-2017 07:42 PM

Hopefully your mum will help. She sounds helpful for times like these.

Are you up to much this evening Beckie? I’m just waiting for casualty to start.

Cacoethes 21-10-2017 07:49 PM

Yep she is!

Im waiting for casualty too.
8:20 isn't it?

Sketchy 21-10-2017 07:51 PM

Yip. Can’t wait. Half an hour to go!

I think I’ll have a sandwich soon. I wasn’t hungry enough to have dinner because I had a big lunch, but I’m getting hungry now. Dad treated me to lunch in an Indian restaurant today.

Cacoethes 21-10-2017 07:56 PM

Ooo lovely!
I haven't had indian food in a long time.
Veggie korma is my favourite.
Me and college friends were talking about Indian food the other day. One of them is indian and she was saying how the indian food they serve in restaurants in the UK are literally nothing like the food that Indians actually make!

Sketchy 21-10-2017 08:00 PM

I wonder what it’s really like. I love Indian food too. I had a paneer curry. My dad had chicken. We shared a naan too. I like veggie korma too.

Cacoethes 21-10-2017 08:04 PM

Sounds yummy!
Love a naan!
It would be interesting to see what a 'real' curry would taste like.

I want an indian takeaway now! :p

Sketchy 21-10-2017 08:07 PM

There’s a restaurant in Glasgow that claims to be authentic, but I don’t know if it is. It does taste different from other restaurants. And they do something similar to tapas, but with Indian food. So tasty.

Cacoethes 21-10-2017 08:18 PM

Sounds lovely!
Im really hungry now! Lol

Casualty is nearly on!

Sketchy 21-10-2017 08:20 PM


Cacoethes 21-10-2017 09:09 PM

That was a good episode!

Sketchy 21-10-2017 09:17 PM

It was indeed.

Cacoethes 21-10-2017 09:28 PM

Im going to head off to bed.
I wantedto watch Gunpowder because Kit Harrington <3 but im too tired.
Night night all!

Sketchy 21-10-2017 09:39 PM

Goodnight. Sleep well.

Shy_Bambi 22-10-2017 11:38 AM

Good morning all. I had a seizure yesterday so I'm feeling really weird today
How is everyone?

not_so_insig 22-10-2017 11:42 AM

Good morning all. I feel much better than yesterday as I am in less pain. I am going out later but I dunno where so I probably won't post here until much later.

Shy_Bambi 22-10-2017 11:48 AM

That's good to hear dawn
When I had my seizure yesterday I fell down some stair at home so I have a red bump on my forehead :( and I bit my tongue too so I can't eat for a few days, I can only drink cold things.

Cacoethes 22-10-2017 12:07 PM

Sorry to hear that Rebecca
Seizures suck.
Get lots and lots of rest today!

Shy_Bambi 22-10-2017 12:30 PM

Thank you Beckie. I'm going to stay in today and try to have some soup.

How are you?

Cacoethes 22-10-2017 01:24 PM

Good plan

Im ok.
Been to asda and now watching finding dory.
Its so windy and cold out there!

not_so_insig 22-10-2017 02:27 PM

I had a seizure whilst ip due to meds once and bit my tongue that I couldn't eat anything except for ice cream so I feel your pain Rebecca.

I am in Snowdonia. Sitting outside on a bench because I feel sick and thought I was going to vomit in the shop.

Sketchy 22-10-2017 02:28 PM

Take it easy Rebecca and allow yourself time to recuperate.

I hope the sickness eases Dawn.

Cpt_Stunning 22-10-2017 02:33 PM

I'm OK, just been sleeping a lot today, will try to do washing & eat.

Sketchy 22-10-2017 02:35 PM

Sometimes you need a sleepy day. What are you going to eat? I have a Mac and cheese ready meal for dinner later.

Cpt_Stunning 22-10-2017 02:41 PM

I wish I had a McDonald's close to me, there's one about 2 miles up the road, bit too far to walk, I've got a chicken curry to eat.

Sketchy 22-10-2017 02:46 PM

They are building a McDonald’s near me. I’ve never been a fan, but then I’m vegetarian. I hope you enjoy your chicken curry. I like a curry.

Shy_Bambi 22-10-2017 02:46 PM

I just had some vegetable soup but I couldnt finish it all so I'll just drink some water to fill me up a bit.
Mcdonalds sounds so good right now, I haven't been there for months.
I'm watching bargain hunt on the iPlayer because Sundays are boring with nothing on tv.

Cacoethes 22-10-2017 02:48 PM

Theres a McDonalds not far from me.
But its a small motorway services so you can only get there by car and i dont drive!
There's a kfc and a burrito place and some other fast food outlets!

Sketchy 22-10-2017 02:51 PM

I have lots of take away places and restaurants nearby. There’s always somewhere to eat.

What’s everyone up to?

I’m hiding in my room. There’s football on near my flat and I’m hiding in my room which faces the back. The crowds make me really anxious.

Shy_Bambi 22-10-2017 02:52 PM

You don't drive YET :-p

Cpt_Stunning 22-10-2017 03:01 PM

The guy in the room next to me has football on the TV, & he's shouting at the TV, I can't be bothered with it tbh, it's just 22 grown men kicking a bit of leather around - if you think about it. But I do like international football.

Sketchy 22-10-2017 03:02 PM

I don’t like football either. It looks like it should be fun, but I can never get into it. I just don’t understand it.
