Katy!! I was wondering where you'd disappeared to!!

chinahorse 06-03-2017 05:17 PM

HI Katy :)

I'm so sleepy!

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 05:23 PM

Hey Lillie!
Time for a nap maybe?

Buttons. 06-03-2017 05:37 PM

Thanks all, I've had the weirdest few weeks-was in physical hospital for two weeks, my phone dies for no reason, ipad follows quickly, laptop had done similar few months ago. I swear I didn't just withdraw from booze I got an internet/technology shakes :P Did read and do lots of puzzles though so hopefully my brain is cleverer.

I second the nap idea.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 05:41 PM

Hope you're ok! X

You don't seem to be having much luck with technology!
Puzzles and reading are good though

chinahorse 06-03-2017 05:43 PM

Oh that sucks Katy. Darn technology!

I've had a nap which is maybe why I was sleepy.

Wonderland. 06-03-2017 05:47 PM

Woe on your technology dying Katy!! But glad you are now physically okay :)

You obviously need a nap Lillie, can you just chill this evening?

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 05:53 PM

Chilling is a good idea.

What's everyone up to?

Wonderland. 06-03-2017 06:00 PM

I'm just chilling while I wait for my noms to cook.

How about you?

Buttons. 06-03-2017 06:01 PM

I'm trying to persuade myself off the sofa into the kitchen to make a brew then watch some new Big Bang

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 06:02 PM

What are you having?

Just watching the Goldbergs and wondering what to have for dinner! Think I might go for soup. Still not feeling too well so it seems the best option!

Sounds like a plan Katy!

Wonderland. 06-03-2017 06:05 PM

I'm having a jacket potato with sweet chili philadelphia.

Soup sounds good Bex!

Get your brew Katy, they are wonderful things :)

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 06:13 PM

Ooo that sounds lush!

Sketchy 06-03-2017 06:17 PM

Hello everyone.

Jacket potato does sound good.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 06:19 PM

Hey Lorraine! How are you?

Sketchy 06-03-2017 06:20 PM

I'm ok thanks. How are you? How is everyone?

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 06:24 PM

Been up to much?

I'm ok. Had a massive headache all day though which is annoying!

Sketchy 06-03-2017 06:26 PM

Oh no, that is annoying. I hope you feel better soon.

I've stayed in all day. I'm really tired today.

chinahorse 06-03-2017 06:35 PM

Oh no that sucks beckie hope it eases soon.

Hi lorraine. Sorry to hear you're tired. Maybe getting out if you can tomorrow would help?

Ooo noms. Nice noms. I'm not hungry yet though.

Sketchy 06-03-2017 06:36 PM

Thanks Lillie. I'm going to try go for a walk tomorrow.

chinahorse 06-03-2017 06:41 PM

That's a good plan if you feel able to lovely.

Sketchy 06-03-2017 06:42 PM

I'm going to try not stay up to late, so I can get up tomorrow. I'll take my sketchbooks and go for a coffee too.

Sketchy 06-03-2017 06:43 PM

What are you up to? You watching tv? I'm going to watch some Netflix.

chinahorse 06-03-2017 06:44 PM

Haha you know me o well! Though I did do my washing up earlier. What sort of thing do you fancy watching?

Sketchy 06-03-2017 06:46 PM

That's good you got your washing up done.

I don't know what I feel like watching. Might watch a comedy series or something. Maybe a film. Decisions decisions!

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 06:46 PM

Thanks guys. I'm drinking lots of water to see if that helps!

That sounds like a good plan Lorraine!

Well done on doing the washing up Lillie :)

chinahorse 06-03-2017 06:50 PM

Hope it does beckie it definitely cant hurt!

I did my washing up. There's still like a weeks worth of other peoples.

Buttons. 06-03-2017 06:58 PM

Hope the headache wears off soon x

Also soup is always a winner when ill if only for comfort.

I love jacket potato but with cheese and beans :)

I have some left over stir fry my support worker brought me over which smells amazing but I still have so little appetite.

Well done re.washing :)

chinahorse 06-03-2017 07:01 PM

Maybe try and eat a little bit Katy. Food is important. Especially yummy smelling stuff.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 07:05 PM

Thanks guys

Cheese and beans is the best topping for jacket potato imo!

Yep, what Lillie said!

chinahorse 06-03-2017 07:09 PM

I used to love that but at the cassel we have jacket potatoes 3 times a week. Learned to love to hate them.

I'm hungry but am watching the news so will make something quick after that.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 07:19 PM

It can ruin it if you have to much of something!

What are you thinking of having Lillie?

I have my soup. It's yummy, country vegetable.

Wonderland. 06-03-2017 07:24 PM

Stir fry sounds nice Katy, you don't have to have it all, maybe just try having a few mouthfuls at a time.

I'm weird as I don't tend to get bored of foods. I always have the same thing over and over. I like it that way. I'm an odd one.

Sounds nommy Bex.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 07:27 PM

I sometimes do the same meals.
Like if I have chicken or any meat really for a meal, I'll have to have it the next day to use it up and I don't really get bored of it.

It was! I wish I had some bread to dip in it though!
I don't use enough bread to justify buying even the small loaves

chinahorse 06-03-2017 07:32 PM

You can always freeze the bread beckie and then just defrost what you need?

I had a pizza for lunch so thinking of something like macaroni cheese.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 07:34 PM

That's a really good idea Lillie! I'll definitely be doing that.
Mac and cheese is yummy!

Wonderland. 06-03-2017 07:34 PM

My mum just buys loaves reduced wacks them in the freezer. And just gets a slice out to defrost when she needs to.

Wonderland. 06-03-2017 07:36 PM

Wahhh Lillie beat me to it.

She also does the same with Milk. I literally had no idea one could freeze milk till she did. She just pours a big bottle into small ones and gets a small one out every time she needs, and it's cheaper for her that way.

chinahorse 06-03-2017 07:37 PM

Your mam has good sense! Especially when they reduce bread to like 20.


Talking of milk it may be cuppa time if I can brave the kitchen.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 07:43 PM

An AMHP told me about the freezing milk thing. I was going into hospital and said I didn't want to throw all the milk away so she said to freeze it!

Cuppa sounds good Lillie!

chinahorse 06-03-2017 08:00 PM

I find defrosted milk goes watery though.

My kitchen is so gross.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 08:04 PM

YeAh it does a but.

Ugh! Could you tell whoever it is to clean it up?

chinahorse 06-03-2017 08:07 PM

It doesn't make a blind bit of difference. I bought them washing up liquid so they stop using that as an excuse.

Wonderland. 06-03-2017 08:11 PM

She uses skim milk anyway, so I don't find you really tell.

What's their excuse now? People like that are just annoying when you have to live with them.

chinahorse 06-03-2017 08:20 PM

Ahhh I see. No idea how normal people use skim milk. Eww.

They are lazy? I mean they are only just in from work so I'll let them off.

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 08:26 PM

I use skim milk now and I dont mind it. I only have it in tea so don't notice.

Maybe you could put up some passive aggressive posters.

chinahorse 06-03-2017 08:29 PM

Jodie is trying to get me to do that lol. Makes no difference.

Hmmm don't know I agree. Like I only really use milk in tea and cereal and I notice it

chinahorse 06-03-2017 08:38 PM

I can hear plates moving about?!progress may be occurring!

Wonderland. 06-03-2017 08:40 PM

*fingers crossed*

Cacoethes 06-03-2017 08:45 PM

There's that milk that is skimmed but tastes like semi skimmed (apparently) but it's too expensive. Would like to try it though.

Fingest crossed!!
