I know. I proper ugly cry at it. So glad I'm watching it alone.

A bath sounds good. It might help you relax and sleep well.

Cacoethes 07-06-2017 08:20 PM

That sounds interesting! Might have to give it a watch.
I never cry at films!

A bath sounds lovely. Hope you enjoy it

Sketchy 07-06-2017 08:24 PM

i recommend it. It's set in the early 70s. It was released in the early 90s. Mackauly Culken is in it.

Cacoethes 07-06-2017 08:29 PM

I shall put that on my watch list for when i have the proper attention span!

Sketchy 07-06-2017 08:33 PM

My girl 2 is on Netflix too, but that's not so good.

I need to create a watch list. I can never decide what to watch. I've been watching doctor who, RuPauls drag race, and I can't wait until orange is the new black releases the new series.

Cacoethes 07-06-2017 08:41 PM

I watched a couple of episodes of RuPauls drag race. It was entertaining but couldnt really get into it.
I am majorly jealous of all their makeup skills though!!

Omg i can't wait until the new series of OITNB!! i think I'll probably end up watching the series in a day!

Sketchy 07-06-2017 08:42 PM

I know. I'll likely watch it really fast, then be sad when it's over. Not long until it's released.

Aubergine 07-06-2017 08:45 PM

Bath was lovely! In bed now. I'm so cool.


Deciding what to watch is very difficult! There is so much choice, isn't there?! I usually just watch one series at a time. iZombie is running a new series at the moment which is entertaining me every Wednesday. :)

Cacoethes 07-06-2017 08:49 PM

Same here Lorraine!

There is loads of choice aubergine!
I looked at izombie and it looks good but i have a real thing about zombies and so far, every zombie movie/show i have watched has freaked me out MAJORLY!!
So i have to be careful!

Aubergine 07-06-2017 08:58 PM

Best not to watch it then, Beckie. Being careful is sensible.


I love bed so much.

Cacoethes 07-06-2017 09:03 PM

I cant even cope with comedy zombie films! Its ridiculous really!

I have some nights i get into bed and get comfy and its like 'yessss this is the best feeling ever!!'

Aubergine 07-06-2017 09:06 PM

It's not ridiculous. There are some subjects I can't deal with either.


Isn't it good? I've not long got a weighted blanket to help with anxiety stuff and it's on my bed and it makes it so comfy and it feels like a cocoon!

Cacoethes 07-06-2017 09:24 PM

Thanks.
Yeah i guess some people have their 'things'

That sounds amazing!
Id love a weighted blanket.
Even when its really really hot, i have to have my duvet on still because i need the weight of it!

Just found out that its the village fete where my mum lives this Saturday and theyre helping out, so i will have some time with just me and Jasmine doing all the kids stuff so im really looking forward to that!
Hope it doesnt rain!!

Aubergine 07-06-2017 09:29 PM

Oh that sounds really lovely. :) Love a fete and even better that you get time with jasmine. I hope you have a great time and that it doesn't rain!

Cacoethes 07-06-2017 09:37 PM

Thanks!!
Village fetes are brilliant!

Im off to bed now. Suddenly veeerrryyy tired!!
Good night all !

not_so_insig 07-06-2017 11:54 PM

I am the same Beckie - I can't get to sleep without a duvet on me no matter the weather.

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 10:40 AM

Morning everyone

Buttons. 08-06-2017 11:13 AM

Morning. Hows you?

not_so_insig 08-06-2017 12:05 PM

Afternoon all. It's polling day today so don't forget to vote!

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 12:55 PM

I'm ok thanks Katy.
How are you?

Hi dawn!
Yep, i will be voting before clubbercise!

Sketchy 08-06-2017 04:38 PM

Afternoon all.

I've just been to vote, and now I'm in town. I went into the art shop for paints and canvas. I'm now in Costa enjoying an iced caramel latte.

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 04:40 PM

Hi Lorraine!
Sounds like a good day :)

not_so_insig 08-06-2017 04:41 PM

I have been out to vote too at the park at the bottom of the road. Sadly it's raining and windy so I got soaked. I have also been to the post office to post something I sold on Facebook.

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 04:43 PM

It has been raining here too. And windy!

Sketchy 08-06-2017 04:44 PM

That's a shame you got soaked Dawn. It's raining here too.

I can't wait to get home and use my new art supplies. Very tired though, which is annoying. The canvas I bought was on sale, so that was good.

not_so_insig 08-06-2017 04:51 PM

That sounds good Lorraine. I should get back to painting.

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 04:58 PM

Sounds good Lorraine. Always nice when you get a good deal on something!

Im hungry but too early to eat! So ive just had an alpen bar. The jaffa cake ones taste exactly like jaffa cakes. Nom!

Sketchy 08-06-2017 05:04 PM

Indeed. I love a bargain. Especially since I'm fussy with my art supplies and they can be so expensive.

Jaffa cake alpen bar sounds nice.

Dawn you should paint again. I liked your paintings and you always seemed to enjoy it.

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 05:09 PM

Anyone up to much this evening? X

Sketchy 08-06-2017 05:12 PM

I'd like to do a bit of painting. I'm so tired though. Hopefully I'll get some done. I need to do some housework too, which is boring. Apart from that I'm going to do my usual Netflix watching and try to go to sleep at a reasonable hour.

What you got planned Beckie?

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 05:14 PM

Hopefully you'll be able to manage some.
Will be good to get to sleep at a reasonable hour!

Ive got carers coming, then clubbercise and going to vote too

Sketchy 08-06-2017 05:17 PM

That's good you have clubbercise. You always seem to enjoy that.

Right, I've finished my iced latte. I'm going into another two shops then home. I need to by a compass to make perfect circles for a painting I have an idea for. Need to buy food too.

Catch you guys later.

Enjoy clubbercise Beckie.

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 05:22 PM

I do enjoy it. Im focusing so hard on all the moves, i dont have time to be stressed! And its a lot of fun :)

See you later Lorraine!

Buttons. 08-06-2017 06:11 PM

Painting and creativity in general sounds like a good plane :)

Enjoy clubbercise Beckie.

I've been looking up some interest groups nearby like writing and bookclubs and other things for when I feel well enough.

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 06:12 PM

That sounds really good katy :)
Have you found anything good?

Sketchy 08-06-2017 07:09 PM

I'm finally home. Having a lay down before I do some painting.

Katy I highly recommend creative writing. I did creative writing evening classes and, although I was anxious, I got a lot out of it. I learned a lot and I met people who are now my good friends. It really helped my confidence. I hope you find something good to do.

Buttons. 08-06-2017 07:45 PM

Yeah there's a few writing and book clubs around-I used to love writing back in the day.

I already go to a mental health cafe and a few other bits (well did before the latest drama llamas) I just need to get back into it and find other things to get out each day rather than sitting in a self made pit.

Sketchy 08-06-2017 07:51 PM

It's understandable to be apprehensive after what you've been through, but it might be good for you to join a group.

You doing anything exciting tonight? I'm trying to summon up the energy to paint, but I'm so tired after running around shopping.

Buttons. 08-06-2017 08:17 PM

Thanks.

Maybe give yourself a break chillout and you'll feel up to painting a little later/tomorrow? I've had left over Chinese (always exciting!) and am watching the film Florence Foster Jenkins for the first time-seems interesting so far.

Sketchy 08-06-2017 08:24 PM

You're right. I get tired easily, but I can always paint tomorrow.

Left over Chinese is always good. Yum.

Buttons. 08-06-2017 09:09 PM

What did you have for dinner Lorraine?

Sketchy 08-06-2017 09:14 PM

I couldn't be bothered cooking and wasn't overly hungry, so I just had a cheese sandwich.

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 09:24 PM

Hey guys!
Just back from clubbercise and voting.
Rolled my ankle at the end so it really hurts now!

Sketchy 08-06-2017 09:26 PM

Oh no. Hope you are ok.

tiptoes 08-06-2017 09:27 PM

RICE!!

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 09:42 PM

Ive been instructed to ice it, keep it elevated and take ibuprofen!
The pain is easing.
I'm really hoping it'll be ok for zumba tomorrow!!

Buttons. 08-06-2017 09:51 PM

Cheese sandwhiches are the food of kings!!!

Aww poor Beckie-hope you are okay for Zumba!

Cacoethes 08-06-2017 09:55 PM

Thanks Katy!

Im off to bed now. Night night all and sleep well!!

Buttons. 08-06-2017 10:20 PM

Night. I found a Queen Latifah film I haven't seen so I'm happy.

Cacoethes 09-06-2017 12:05 PM

Morning guys.
Got up at 8am for carer then went straight back to bed. Just woken up!
Ankle still reeaallyy hurts so no zumba for me :(

How is everyone?
