Victorian markets sound fun! Have never actually been to Norwich hope you both have fun :)

[Luna] 05-12-2016 06:43 AM

Morning all! How is everyone?

Buttons. 05-12-2016 06:54 AM

Morning! I'm alright, just watching Come Dine With Me and cringing slightly :P How are you lovely?

[Luna] 05-12-2016 06:57 AM

I love Come dine with me. I'm ok. Couldn't sleep because of a bad back.
What are you up to today?

Buttons. 05-12-2016 07:00 AM

Me too :)

Sorry to hear about your back, have you tried a hot water bottle? I sometimes find that helpful when mine is causing me problems. At other times a cold pack has helped...no idea how both can work but I've found they do :P

I'm seeing my social worker in the afternoon and debating on trying to go into town at some point but suspect that won't happen today, bit anxious.

Buttons. 05-12-2016 07:05 AM

Now watching a programme about dogs. Even the ugly ones are cute!

[Luna] 05-12-2016 07:28 AM

Haha, which ones are the ugly ones?

Buttons. 05-12-2016 09:27 AM

These hairless Chinese things, and in my opinion pugs.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 10:46 AM

Hey guys!
My Internet is being stupid. It won't connect so I'm using my phone.
Probably because I haven't paid the bill yet.
Which means no Netflix until Friday :(

I think pugs are ugly.

Wonderland. 05-12-2016 11:04 AM

I feel for you bex!

One of the girls when I was in rehab was allowed her pug puppy to visit the ward, and it got so overly excited it sounded like it was having an asthma attack the poor thing!

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 11:26 AM

Morning all

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 11:36 AM

That's funny Ames!
When I was in adolescent, a girl used to bring her dog in sone weekends. It was awesome! Although one of the staff was terrified and hid in the office the whole day! It was only a little dog! Some sort of terrier.

Morning Dawn!

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 11:59 AM

I won the things I was bidding on yesterday. 4 video game related things.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 12:14 PM

That's brilliant Dawn!

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 12:20 PM

Yes especially as one is a gift for my brother.

My youngest kitties were uber annoying last night. They were running around at top speed as I was trying to sleep. Annoyingly they knocked over the tree so I had to lock them out of the living room. So my tree needs adjusting today.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 12:27 PM

Why do cats do that?!

In my old house, my neighbours had a cat and apparently he'd go mental and jump up at the wall between our houses. We worked out that he'd go mental like that if I was having a seizure in my house so if the cat started doing that, my neighbours knew to come and check on me.
And in one of my hospitals we had a cat and she would go into or wait outside patient's doors if they were having a particularly bad day.
It's so amazing how animals have that 6th sense!

Buttons. 05-12-2016 12:47 PM

Ha ha my terrier (which my parents look after atm) was allowed in on the downlow when I was 14 and in an adolescent psych unit, guy who let her in brought us all a cup of tea, dogs response-mission to kill :P

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 01:22 PM

My eldest cat becomes very clingy and won't leave my side when I am having a bad day. Normally she's very nervous and my cpn doesn't see her. I used to spend a lot of time in bed when I was sicker than I am now and she used to spend her time on my pillow. Now when I am going to sleep she spends her time on my pillow but sometime during the night she moves off.

Sketchy 05-12-2016 01:52 PM

Good afternoon all.

I'm attempting xmas shopping today and tomorrow. Wish me luck. I hate shopping.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 02:10 PM

Animals are brilliant. I want a dog so badly!
My dream pet is a snake though!

Good luck with your Christmas shopping Lorraine! I still need to finish mine.

Serendipity. 05-12-2016 02:27 PM

I haven't even started my Christmas shopping. Oops.

I want a pet! In January I'm moving to a flat with two cats, yay.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 02:30 PM

Yay for cats!! :-D

My Internet bill is waaaay more than I expected... :ermm:

Wonderland. 05-12-2016 02:33 PM

Thats awesome Hannah :-)

Oh no Bex, adulting sucks!

Wonderland. 05-12-2016 02:34 PM

Or trying to.. :-p

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 02:40 PM

Yep it really does suck!!
Spent all that time as a child/teenager wanting to move out and grow up but now I realise how stupid that was!!

Wonderland. 05-12-2016 02:46 PM

Oh I think a lot of us are the same. You are kind of sold as a child/teen the illusion that you can do/be anything. Which really isn't very realistic whatsoever!

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 02:55 PM

Exactly! I was watching a show on cbbc once and they asked kids what they were most looking forward to when they grow up.
Answers were like:
Going out when you want
Going to parties and clubs
Getting a house and having a job
Getting a car

I was like, they are going to be very disappointed when they realise that basically no one can afford to buy a house these days, cars are ridiculously expensive to run, there are no jobs and you can't go out to parties because you have bills to pay!
It really does suck!

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 03:00 PM

I have barely started on mine! I only have one present. Trouble is that people haven't said what they want and I suck unless they tell me.

I am going to buy some Christmas cards tomorrow because the last post for Australia is Saturday and I want to post the card to my online buddy. I have another buddy who's in the USA so it makes sense for it to be posted then. She doesn't like cards with Santa on due to religious beliefs and the only cards I have got have Santa on. I would have gone today only for the fact I was waiting for a amazon parcel to be delivered.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 03:06 PM

I only have one present too. Same reason as you dawn, no one has told me what they want!

I'm rubbish at sending cards!

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 03:09 PM

Also Beckie they can't go out whenever they want because they have lack of money!

Serendipity. 05-12-2016 03:18 PM

I hope you find some nice cards Dawn :) I usually write all mine and then forget to send them!

Adulting really does suck. But then would you really want to go back to being a child and doing what you're told and having to deal with all the ridiculousness of school and other children? Basically, life sucks :P

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 03:20 PM

Much easier if people have amazon wishlists because I just tell people to get me something from it. Trouble is that mine has things like ariel and toilet roll (I put it there because it's easier to find plus it's cheaper on amazon) so I am hoping that nobody buys me those. Hopefully one of my ebay wins comes soon so I can say that I have 2 presents.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 03:23 PM

That's true Hannah! I don't think I'd want to be a kid again!

I don't have an amazon wishlist. I don't think any of the family do either!

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 03:24 PM

I was badly bullied from age 7 to 17 so I wouldn't like to be a kid again because I was so unhappy. Even though I am now ill I am generally been happier in the past 10 years than in any previous years.

Voldemort 05-12-2016 04:03 PM

Afternoon all.

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 04:04 PM

Hi Amy

Buttons. 05-12-2016 04:27 PM

Hey :)

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 04:36 PM

Hey guys!!

I'm watching Mulan and attempting to do English homework that's due tomorrow!
I hate the writing tests. Reading tests, absolutely fine but writing is loonnnggg!

not_so_insig 05-12-2016 04:36 PM

Hi Katy.

Voldemort 05-12-2016 04:54 PM

I don't mind writing tests too much.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 05:38 PM

I hate writing things like emails and letters in everyday life! I get really anxious about them!
So writing them with a time limit and knowing it's going to be graded is my idea of hell!!

Voldemort 05-12-2016 05:51 PM

I hope you get it done! I'm sure you'll be fine.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 06:16 PM

Thanks! :)

Only got one more bit to do. No concentration though!

Voldemort 05-12-2016 06:19 PM

That sucks. Just try and manage the last little bit and you'll be home free!

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 06:27 PM

I'll have to power through! Then I can enjoy my evening without the homework hanging over my head!

Voldemort 05-12-2016 06:32 PM

*Cheer leads*

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 08:03 PM

Thanks Amy! :)

I have finished! Woo hoo! It's probably ***** but I don't care anymore :p
Had a shower now waiting for my hair to dry before I take my meds.

How are you?

Voldemort 05-12-2016 08:10 PM

Well done! I'm glad you got it finished. :)

Ehh. I'm ok. Got a bit of a stomach ache for some reason.

Cacoethes 05-12-2016 08:18 PM

Thanks :)

Oh no! Stomach aches are no fun :(
Hope you feel better soon!

Voldemort 05-12-2016 08:21 PM

Thanks. How are you?
