Aubergine 15-08-2017 09:13 PM

That sounds horrible, Rebecca!

Ugh. Not nice, Beckie! I'm glad it's better in your new house!

Sketchy 15-08-2017 09:15 PM

I live in a really old flat, so I often get spiders at this time of year. Thankfully they don't bother me.

Cacoethes 15-08-2017 09:18 PM

I wish spiders didnt bother me!
I dont know why i find them so horrifying

Sketchy 15-08-2017 09:19 PM

We all have our different fears just like I'm scared of dogs.

Cacoethes 15-08-2017 09:23 PM

That is true!
And my fear of Ainsley Harriot!

Aubergine 15-08-2017 09:25 PM

Fears all round!

Buttons. 15-08-2017 09:29 PM

The spider one though there's some psych theory that we have an innate fear of spiders (same for snakes) because evolution wise those humans went and poked the poisonous spider/snakes didn't live as long as those who stayed well away, and the only reason in this day and age some are okay with them (despite majority not being okay with them) is socialisation and the fact that in a lot of ways due to housing, technology etc these animals are less of an immediate threat. *geek moment over, sweeps out with a cape top hat and knowledge ;P*

Cacoethes 15-08-2017 09:32 PM

That makes sense katy.
I think i remember reading something like that actually!
Apparently theres an episode of Peppa Pig that teaches kids that spiders are not to be feared. But it had to be banned in Australia because in Australia, spiders are to be feared very much!!

Weird though cos i love snakes!

Oh dear definitely Not an episode to be aired in Australia!!!

Yeah I find it weird because I also detest spiders and love snakes. Maybe we are potential Basilisk handlers/heirs of Slytherin :P

Sketchy 15-08-2017 09:36 PM

I'm falling asleep, so I think I'll log off now. Good night everyone. Hope you all sleep well.

Cacoethes 15-08-2017 09:37 PM


YES!! that's definitely the reason katy!

Good night Lorraine!

Aubergine 15-08-2017 09:39 PM

I am scared of both! Makes complete sense!

If I read Harry potter I'm sure I'd understand much more around here... :P

Aubergine 15-08-2017 09:40 PM

Night night Lorraine!

Cacoethes 15-08-2017 09:41 PM

Yeah i think like 99% of us are harry potter geeks here :p

You should read them! They are great!
(One of us, one of us!!!)

Cacoethes 15-08-2017 09:54 PM

'Insane winking gay magician' is my new favourite tv quote.

Shy_Bambi 15-08-2017 10:05 PM

The spindley spiders are awful! Just thinking about one of them walking along the wall makes me shiver!

Yay for Harry Potter!! I took that quiz on Facebook and got Ron :D

The Worst Witch 15-08-2017 10:05 PM

I didn't think I'd ever hear someone say Peppa Pig is banned...shame its not here, I work with the under 5s and they all go mental for Peppa Pig! That and Paw Patrol, I embarrassed myself at work the other week for not knowing who they were...rookie mistake.

Hello :). I'm Mildred (not my real name but I use it on here for privacy reasons). How is everyone?

Cacoethes 15-08-2017 10:10 PM

Ron is awesome!

Hello Mildred!!
I agree, Peppa Pig is bloody awful!!
I dont mind paw patrol that much tbh!
I don't know why kids love peppa so much.
Like theres even a peppa pig world!

Im off to bed now guys!
Night all!

not_so_insig 15-08-2017 10:11 PM

Hi Mildred. I have all the series of The Worst Witch plus Weird sister college on dvd.

not_so_insig 15-08-2017 10:11 PM

Night night Beckie.

Cacoethes 15-08-2017 10:14 PM

Just had to say, i used to love the worst witch!!
I tried to change my name to Mildred when I was in year 2 :p

The Worst Witch 15-08-2017 10:17 PM

Yeah, a few kids from work have been...not my ideal holiday destination for a child, but then I suppose if they're happy that means mum and dad are happy/can relax a bit!

I love Harry Potter, but I haven't read it for a good couple of years. When I was training, I did a project on it with the kids at Halloween and we all made wizard hats after I read some of the first book to them. I need to read them again!

The Worst Witch 15-08-2017 10:21 PM

Haha, here is the only place thats ever heard of it...! The Daily Mail gave away the whole series of books about 5/6 years ago, they were my favourite books as a kid (apart from Harry Potter).

Buttons. 15-08-2017 10:30 PM

Ron is an awesome pick, well done Rebecca!

Yeah Aubergine you might want to start reading the Harry Potter books or you may well find yourself a tad confused :P (plus the books are EPIC).

Milldred I used to adore The Worst Witch growing up!

The Worst Witch 15-08-2017 10:45 PM

I have all the books on my iPad, but still getting used to teading on an iPad. My girlfriend put a whole load of books on mine for me, including the Worst Witch series but I think I still prefer holding an actual book.

Ron is indeed awesome, but my favourite Weasley is Ginny. JK Rowling lives not far from the girlfriend but I haven't bumped into her yet :(.

Buttons. 15-08-2017 10:56 PM

I do understand the adjustment, happens to the best of us :)

I like book Ginny but film Ginny pisses me off.

You do realise if you ever do run into her this entire thread will mob you until we have an autograph each :P

The Worst Witch 15-08-2017 11:23 PM

Film Ginny pisses me off too, I think she's just all wrong for the role. I don't like the films anyway, I'm much more of a book kinda person. I don't think I've ever seen a film adaptation that I liked more than the book.

Haha, I shall bear that in mind :P. The street she lives on (or has a house in anyway) has a specific name, I won't say here because it'll give away location but its so heavily guarded that commoners are arrested for walking down it! Colin Montgomerie lives nearby too, but he's mot so famous anymore.

Sketchy 16-08-2017 05:44 AM

Hello everyone.

my goodness it's early!

The Worst Witch 16-08-2017 06:49 AM


Yeah, have to say that I'm not loving these early starts after 6 weeks off...am tired! You up to much today, Sketchy?

Buttons. 16-08-2017 08:01 AM

Morning all :)

Aubergine 16-08-2017 09:06 AM

Morning. :)

Shy_Bambi 16-08-2017 09:26 AM

Goooood morning. It's too sunny for my liking today Dx

Aubergine 16-08-2017 09:29 AM

Hey Rebecca. You don't like the sunshine?!

Buttons. 16-08-2017 09:30 AM

I'm okay with the sunshine provided it doesn't get any hotter than it already is-I don't do being too hot well at all.

What's everyones plans for today?

Aubergine 16-08-2017 09:37 AM

Hey Katy. :)

No interesting plans. How about you?

Buttons. 16-08-2017 09:45 AM

Nothing much, seeing CPN later.

not_so_insig 16-08-2017 10:14 AM

Morning all.

Shy_Bambi 16-08-2017 10:17 AM

Yeah not a fan of the sun in general to be honest! But the sun has gone in now and it's cloudy so yay!

Aubergine 16-08-2017 10:18 AM

I hope it goes well with your CPN.

I am tired.

I'm going to visit my dad later.

How is everyone? I just woke from a nap. Lazing around before I have to get ready.

Shy_Bambi 16-08-2017 10:45 AM

You've been super busy recently Sketchy!

I have a doctor's appointment. I just hope they don't cancel it like they did the past 2 days :/

Sketchy 16-08-2017 10:48 AM

I have been busy.

I hope your appointment goes well and it isn't cancelled.

Aubergine 16-08-2017 10:50 AM

Nap sounds great, Lorraine. I hope seeing your dad is good.

Oh I hope they keep the appointment, Rebecca!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 10:51 AM

Hey aubergine. What are you up to today?

The Worst Witch 16-08-2017 11:08 AM

I hope they don't cancel your appointment too and that it goes well, its so annoying when they do that!

I hope you have fun with your dad, Sketchy.

Ducky!! I haven't spoken to you for ages. How goes it?

Sketchy 16-08-2017 11:09 AM

You up to much Mildred?

Buttons. 16-08-2017 11:10 AM

I'm trying to persuade myself that I actually like crisps as I don't have anything else in :P definitely need to do a food shop today when support worker materialises.

Sketchy 16-08-2017 11:12 AM

You don't like crisps? That's almost as bad as not liking m&ms!

Definitely do a food shop. Get something yummy.

The Worst Witch 16-08-2017 11:21 AM

I'm sat in the office at work trying to do planning but RYLing instead...my head is mush today, but its only the second day back at work after having 6 weeks off so I'm thinking its a symptom of that.

I don't mind food shopping. Or washing dishes, or any chores really. I find them quite relaxing, although I can put them off occasionally too. I think its because I live at home, desperately trying to prove to my mum that I'm "well" enough to live on my own. You'd think being in charge of 25 3 and 4 year olds would do that, but apparently not!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 11:23 AM

It must be hard to adjust to work after having that much time off.
