Yep they are very sweet!
I like sweet cocktails where you can't taste the alcohol whatsoever!

Cold?!?!?! How?!?!

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 07:46 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 20-05-2022 08:36 AM

Morning Beckie.

How are you?

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 08:40 AM

I'm ok thanks!


Zurg 20-05-2022 09:21 AM

A bit tired, a bit meh…. But i have a cup of coffee beside me. So it could definetely be a lot worse!!

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 09:26 AM

Yay for coffee!
I also have coffee!

not_so_insig 20-05-2022 11:17 AM

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 11:43 AM

my phone is dead. legit dead. and i cant phone samsung because i have no phone! the nearest samsung store is oxford street.
and my intenrnet is being stupid

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 01:52 PM

Hey everyone.

I hope your coffee helped Kat. Have you tried any of the biscuits yet?

I hope your appointment goes well Dawn.

Is your internet behaving yet Beckie?

P.S. I'm not ignoring Beckie's broken phone, we have been chatting about it elsewhere.

I'm feeling really awful today. I told my support worker I don't want to try a woodland thing because it's on the same day as the gym group and I can't cope with such a long day. She's trying to push me to give things a try and it's making me anxious. I went on the bus to go to another town to go to Asda and I was so anxious. Now I just feel like crying. I'm scared of life.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 02:03 PM

The internet is behaving now!
This phone is super slow. Its annoying!

Sorry to hear that Lindsay
Did you tell her it's making you anxious?

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 02:08 PM

Are you using the phone for the internet or do you have a laptop or whatever? I would get so impatient with a slow phone. We all expect things to happen straight away now!

I didn't tell her it's making me anxious but she wants me to push past things and give things a try. There's so much stuff going on mentally that she can't see but she just focuses on how i'm going to the gym group so things look good on her side.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 02:11 PM

I'm using the phone now. I find it easier to type on the phone

There's no point in doing something that's going to make you feel bad! No shame In not being able to push past it. Not everyone can

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 02:17 PM

Thanks. You can take over my support!

I don't know how you can use your phone to go on the internet. It's too small. Except for things like the Fb app. I much prefer my laptop.

I finally defrosted my freezer.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 02:22 PM

Would if I could!

I think I'm just used to it now!

Yay well done!

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 02:27 PM

It wasn't such a task. I just left it off overnight with some towels on the floor and then wiped it out this morning. I haven't put it back on yet because I don't need to. I don't know what to put in it because I'm trying to be healthy but I can't just eat soup for lunch and salad for dinner every day, I need variety.

What have you been up to today?

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 03:01 PM

Deciding what to eat every day is hard

Not a lot really.
Post office then asda. Then home and then had to go out again to get this phone!

one_step_closer 20-05-2022 05:10 PM

I had a takeaway because I couldn't face salad. So bad.

You got the things done that you needed to so that's a win of a day.

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 05:16 PM

No problem with getting a takeaway once in a while!

That's true!
I just feel.lazy lol

nonperson 20-05-2022 07:47 PM

Evening all

What's up with your phone, Beckie? I thought it was kind of new?

Cacoethes 20-05-2022 08:04 PM

Hey np!

It is pretty new! About a year old?
The display has gone. The phone software and everything is fine, it's just the display. An easy but expensive fix!

nonperson 20-05-2022 09:22 PM

Ah that's not good!

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 08:16 AM

Morning everyone!
I have Jasmine coming over today :-D

tamobhuuta 21-05-2022 11:34 AM

I hope you have fun :)

one_step_closer 21-05-2022 11:36 AM

I hope you have a lovely day Beckie.

Do you have anything on today Tamo?

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 11:38 AM

Thanks guys!!

How are you both?

tamobhuuta 21-05-2022 11:40 AM

I'm ok, no plans for today. Doing all the things that help me.

How are you osc?

one_step_closer 21-05-2022 11:41 AM

Trying not to think of what bad things might happen in the future.

When's Jasmine arriving or is she already there?

Keep doing those things, Tamo.

tamobhuuta 21-05-2022 11:45 AM

We can't tell the future, try not to obsess . Easier said than done!

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 11:47 AM

My brother said around midday. So hopefully very soon!

one_step_closer 21-05-2022 11:51 AM

I know Tamo, it is very hard. I waste my days worrying about what if's when I should be focusing on the current day.

Is your brother good at being on time for things? Enjoy. :-D

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 12:05 PM

It varies! Lol

one_step_closer 21-05-2022 05:14 PM

Evening everyone, how has your day been?

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 05:42 PM

Hey Lindsay!
I've had a really good day!
Jasmine didn't want to leave lol!

nonperson 21-05-2022 07:24 PM

Evening. I've had a mixed sort of day but ended it with a really long dog walk which has surprisingly helped.

Glad you and Jasmine had a good day, Beckie.

How's your day been Lindsay?

Zurg 21-05-2022 07:44 PM

I approve of all things dog related, NP!!!

How old is Jasmine now, Beckie???

I am eating a wee bit of crisps before escaping the birdie madness and rush to the bedroom. I love the wee feathery beasts but some days i quite look forward to them going to sleep….

nonperson 21-05-2022 07:48 PM

Do you approve of her eating other dogs poop? XD

Understandable, Zurg. Everyone needs their own space even away from pets sometimes.

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 08:19 PM

Dogs are great!
Though the eating poop thing is not so great!

Jasmine is 9 now zurg!
Though most people think she's 11-12. Even passport control didnt believe that shes 9!

nonperson 21-05-2022 08:24 PM

It's not great at all but y'know, no one's perfect.

Is she tall or just mature for her age?

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 08:30 PM

She's very tall! She steals my nearly 18 year old sister's clothes and shoes! (Sister is quite short)

nonperson 21-05-2022 08:42 PM

That's handy. =P

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 08:51 PM

Yep! My sister gets rather annoyed though!

nonperson 21-05-2022 08:59 PM

I can imagine.

Never had that problem with my sister. Close in age but very different clothing tastes. =)

Cacoethes 21-05-2022 09:05 PM

I don't have a sister close in age but our clothing tastes are different anyway!
Especially when i was younger. I was full on goth/emo!

nonperson 21-05-2022 09:09 PM

I was a sort of a grunger I suppose while she was a bit... Spice Girls, lol

Cacoethes 22-05-2022 07:28 AM


Morning everyone!
It's my chemical romance daaaayyy!!!!

nonperson 22-05-2022 09:53 AM

Ah, the only band I've seen where I left in the middle of their set.

Cacoethes 22-05-2022 09:59 AM


nonperson 22-05-2022 10:48 AM

Didn't like it. =P

Cacoethes 22-05-2022 10:53 AM

Oh nooooo!
Well, placebo are also playing!

Pretty much every train from Euston to MK are cancelled
It's going to be stressful getting there!
Hopefully the trains back won't be so bad.
I'm already getting home at 1:30am if all goes to plan! :ermm:

tamobhuuta 22-05-2022 11:07 AM

I've never been to a gig
