I have a key for every single handbag that I own. Actually I was more surprised that my parents didn't say anything rather than it working in rural Wales. It's only the 3rd time I have used my key. According to my parents I should use my key more to get my money's worth. I said that I feel self conscious because I am not obviously disabled and the first time I used it someone stared. My parents l said that I should take no notice of them and if anyone says anything to remind them that my disability is invisible and I am entitled to use the disabled loo. Also I should show my toilet card more.

I had a nice time on the pier. We actually had a drink in the pub opposite the pier.

I am thinking of going swimming tomorrow. Otherwise if I don't go I won't be able to go for 3 weeks.

Hello everyone.

That's me just home from my friends flat. We had pizza in an Italian restaurant, then back to hers for wine. Perhaps too much wine. :)
It was good though.

not_so_insig 03-04-2017 01:06 AM

Glad you had a good time Lorraine.

Sketchy 03-04-2017 01:09 AM

Thanks Dawn. It was fun. How are you?

not_so_insig 03-04-2017 01:38 AM

I am ok. My washing machine decided to go slow so it was going until about 10 mins ago I just hope that I haven't disturbed anyone. Nobody came knocking to complain. Fortunately nobody in this block of flats goes to bed early so I am hoping that I am worrying about nothing.

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 10:40 AM

Morning guys!

not_so_insig 03-04-2017 11:35 AM

Hi Beckie.

My back is hurting me. I have taken a load of painkillers so I am hoping that they will kick in soon.

Buttons. 03-04-2017 12:07 PM

Hope your back feels better soon.

not_so_insig 03-04-2017 12:13 PM

Thanks Buttons (sorry I forget your name ).

Buttons. 03-04-2017 12:16 PM

Katy :)

Have you tried a hot water bottle or heat pad or something?

not_so_insig 03-04-2017 12:34 PM

No just painkillers atm. It's slowly getting better though.

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 12:47 PM

Glad it's getting better!

Hey Katy! How are you? Loving your sig!

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 12:53 PM

Katy! Loving the new sig and avatar!!!

Just been to stop smoking appointment. The guy is so fit! :p
I've got the next step of patches now, they're a lower dose of nicotine :)

not_so_insig 03-04-2017 01:09 PM

Ooh I have read that a Papa John's is coming to town! Fingers crossed that they will deliver to me (unlike pizza hut).

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 01:18 PM

That sounds good dawn!

Shy_Bambi 03-04-2017 01:21 PM

Good afternoon everyone! How are you all? :D

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 01:23 PM

Pizza is always good!

You're doing so well with not smoking Beckie!

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 01:24 PM

Hi bambi! How are you?

Thanks Hannah! I definitely feel much better for it!

Shy_Bambi 03-04-2017 01:43 PM

I'm doing okay today thank you, Cacoethes! How are you?

Tixy 03-04-2017 02:08 PM

Hi all

How long have u been given up smoking for? I gave up 383 days ago! It was hard at first and sometimes now I still think about it but not a lot.

Buttons. 03-04-2017 02:09 PM

Thanks for the compliments on my sig and avatar Hannah and Beckie :D I'm okay got a fairly busy pleasant week in store, cinema to see Beauty and the Beast with a friend, Wednesday lunch with my mum celebrating her being back off holiday, Thursday hopefully meeting another friend in town :)

Beckie I have been trying the patches and reducing, have reduced a bit but not been massively successful so am going to the smoking cessation thing at my GP soon see if it helps. Hope the nicotine reduction goes well for you I am so proud of you for how well you're doing giving up!!

Buttons. 03-04-2017 02:10 PM

Hi Tixy :)

Tixy 03-04-2017 02:12 PM

Both stick with it cause it does get easier :)

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 02:28 PM

I'm good thanks bambi. And feel free to call me Beckie :)

Hello tixy! Well done for stopping smoking! You've done great!
It will be 3 weeks on Wednesday so I'm over the worst of it!

Sounds like a good week ahead Katy!
Smoking cessation things really do help!
I probably wouldn't have been able to do it without their help!
Thank Katy! X

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 02:29 PM

You're all amazing! Glad you're feeling better for it Beckie! :)

Sounds good Katy :) Beauty and the Beast is wonderful!

What are you all up to today? I'm bored as usual :P

Tixy 03-04-2017 02:33 PM

Your doing great cacoethes! Do you find that your tast buds have changed? Mine did everything tasted different when I stopped.

Well I might go out for a little bit later for a drive, that's if I get the motivation to get up. Lol!

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 02:35 PM

A drive sounds good :)

Tixy 03-04-2017 02:37 PM

I try and go out everyday for a drive or I would drive myself insane lol

Shy_Bambi 03-04-2017 02:37 PM

Oh I wish I could drive, it must be a good way to busy your mind and unwind sometimes! What type of car do you have? :D

Tixy 03-04-2017 02:40 PM

It is bambi, I love turning on the music and just driving to random places. I have a little blue Peugeot, I love it lol.

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 02:41 PM

Thanks tixy!
My tastebuds have definitely changed. I don't have to put salt on all my food now because I can taste it better!
Funny how that happens!

Drive sounds good. I can't wait to learn to drive! Waiting for my provisional licence to come through and it's taking forever! !

Tixy 03-04-2017 02:47 PM

When I had ketchup after I stopped smoking it was like the best thing ever! I couldn't get enough of it lol.

Hopefully it will come soon! Best thing I did was learn to drive.

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 02:51 PM

I really need to learn to drive! I keep meaning to start lessons, I just need to change the address on my provisional. And possibly inform the DVLA about my mentals :P

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 02:52 PM

Haha! That's funny!

Thanks! Life would be much easier if I could drive!
Been waiting so long to be well enough to drive!

You need to do it Hannah!
You could do it considering how bored you are! :p

Shy_Bambi 03-04-2017 02:54 PM

Aww that sounds like a cute car Tixy!!
I can't learn to drive because I have epilepsy :( sucks because it's one of the things I want the most. Ain't that always the way lol

Tixy 03-04-2017 02:58 PM

:( that does suck! Well I love driving but it does get expensive what with MOT, Petrol, insurance and when it breaks.

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 02:59 PM

I also have epilepsy. But I've been seizure free for 15 months now so my neuro has cleared me to drive.

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 03:03 PM

Yay for no seizures!

I hope you can learn to drive at some point Rebecca.

I should do that Beckie! When I as a kid, my mum used to tell me that only boring people get bored. I must be a very boring person! :P

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 03:05 PM

Haha!! Me too Hannah! :p

Tixy 03-04-2017 03:06 PM

Lol I must be also then!

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 03:07 PM

The correct answer is 'no Hannah, you are a super interesting person and your company is scintillating' :P

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 03:08 PM

Haha!! Well I certainly didn't think you were boring when we met up! It was a very fun day!

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 03:10 PM

It was fun! My piercing still hurts :'(

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 03:12 PM

Mine doesn't hurt at all! :p
Are you cleaning it regularly?

I'm off to get jabbed with a needle. Fun times!

not_so_insig 03-04-2017 03:14 PM

I just had a knock on my door. Turns out to be a courier with a parcel for me. It was supposed to come via royal mail so I was in my pyjamas as I am having a lazy day.

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 03:14 PM

Haha, have fun :P

Not fair :( tbf mine only hurts when I accidentally poke it or try to sleep on it!

Shy_Bambi 03-04-2017 03:15 PM

I'm really glad you're seizure free Cacoethes!!! I had one 2 days ago, still feel a bit weird from it. Keep getting auras too which sucks.
dare I be nosey and ask what piercings you have lol

Serendipity. 03-04-2017 03:15 PM

they won't care about the PJs Dawn! Hope it was something nice :)

not_so_insig 03-04-2017 03:17 PM

It's a portable dvd player. I am in the middle of testing it but I have already multi region hacked it so it plays all my dvds.

Cacoethes 03-04-2017 03:29 PM

Sorry to hear that bambi. Seizures are horrible. Are yours not very well controlled then?

I got a rook piercing. I love it!
