Sounds good Lorraine! I might go out for coffee tomorrow.

Sketchy 16-02-2017 06:23 PM

Good plan. I'm going to try do the same tomorrow since I need to pick up meds anyway. I took my my sketchbook with me. I was drawing insects, but tomorrow I might draw something abstract or marbles. Random, yes I know.

Cacoethes 16-02-2017 06:43 PM

That sounds cool!
Drawing is therapeutic I find.

not_so_insig 16-02-2017 07:18 PM

I am going out for coffee tomorrow. Not sure where yet because I am going to a retail park and they have more than one option. I am meeting with my friend who is going to give me my birthday present and card. Then she's off to see her grandchildren afterwards.

Sketchy 16-02-2017 07:22 PM

That will be good for you getting out tomorrow. What day is your birthday? Have you anything planned for it?

not_so_insig 16-02-2017 07:27 PM

My birthday is on Wednesday Lorraine. I am going out for my birthday meal on Sunday and then on my actual day I will be going out somewhere. Not sure where but it's my choice. Probably go to a seaside resort with a pier (I love piers and am a member of the National Piers Society).

Sketchy 16-02-2017 07:32 PM

Seaside sounds like a nice way to spend your birthday. I love the seaside. I haven't been in ages. I really need to go again. It always inspires me to draw.

not_so_insig 16-02-2017 07:40 PM

I love painting the sea. I haven't done any painting for ages though. I have about 10 piers within a 2 hour drive so I have plenty of choice. I have some vintage postcards of the sea including some which are over 100 years old!

Sketchy 16-02-2017 07:43 PM

That sounds nice. I like piers too.

not_so_insig 16-02-2017 07:54 PM

Scotland has 2 piers Lorraine - at Dunoon and Rothesay. I haven't been to them. All I know is that Dunoon is a mug company!

Sketchy 16-02-2017 07:57 PM

I've been to Dunoon years ago. I was in Rothesay on holiday last year. It's nice there.

not_so_insig 16-02-2017 08:14 PM

I have just finished my tea. It was an entirely vegetarian meal - tomato and cambert tarts with some chips. I like some vegetarian food.

Sketchy 16-02-2017 08:15 PM

That sounds really yummy. I've been vegetarian for 20 years, so I know quite a few vegetarian dishes. I like making things like chilli or curries.

not_so_insig 16-02-2017 08:22 PM

I sometimes make a bean chilli. My favourite meal is pasta primavera though. It has pasta, dill, leeks, chives, runner beans, cheese and clotted cream.

Sketchy 16-02-2017 08:25 PM

That does sound good.

not_so_insig 16-02-2017 08:41 PM

Oh and garlic. I forgot about that. I use my garlic crusher.

chinahorse 16-02-2017 11:49 PM

All of those sound super tasty!

Sketchy 17-02-2017 12:32 AM

I should probably go to sleep, but I feel like staying up a little bit longer. Anyone around?

Hello Lillie. *waves*

Moonlight Princess 17-02-2017 12:45 AM

Hello folks!

Sketchy 17-02-2017 12:48 AM

Hello Kiran. How are you both? What are you up to?

Moonlight Princess 17-02-2017 12:52 AM

I'm just Youtubing random songs and reading short stories on a website called Literally stories.

How about you Lorraine?

Sketchy 17-02-2017 12:54 AM

Just procrastinating. I really should get ready for bed.

Sketchy 17-02-2017 01:01 AM

I'm off to bed. Good night everyone.

Moonlight Princess 17-02-2017 01:03 AM

Goodnight :)

chinahorse 17-02-2017 02:09 AM

I immediately had a doze after posting. Oops.

Anyone still up?

not_so_insig 17-02-2017 10:55 AM

I am awake because I am meeting my friend today. Although I don't leave for another hour I have to tidy my flat up. So busy busy!

[Luna] 17-02-2017 11:01 AM

Morning guys.

tiptoes 17-02-2017 11:13 AM


[Luna] 17-02-2017 11:15 AM

Hey love, how are you?

tiptoes 17-02-2017 11:18 AM

I'm good thanks, how are you?

chinahorse 17-02-2017 11:20 AM


[Luna] 17-02-2017 11:22 AM

Morning Lillie.

What are you guys up to today?

I'm just getting ready to see my support worker then going to the RAF museum with J and E.

tiptoes 17-02-2017 11:30 AM

I have a few chores to do but other than that, I have a quiet day in front of the telly planned :)

I hope seeing your support worker goes ok and that you have a nice time at the museum.

How are you doing Lillie?

chinahorse 17-02-2017 11:40 AM

Hope you have a nice time at the museum :)

A quiet day sounds nice and relaxing. There's not much on the telly though.

I'm sore and exhausted. My dad is picking me up later and taking me the 3 hours to his as I can't look after myself. I called the hospital and they said there's nothing they can do.

[Luna] 17-02-2017 11:47 AM

I'm glad your dad is coming to get you love. I really hope it helps.

It's quite warm today!

chinahorse 17-02-2017 11:50 AM


Is it? I'm wearing a summer dress so it feels cool. It's also very overcast outside.

[Luna] 17-02-2017 11:56 AM

I'm wearing a jumper and have my coat so I'm sweating.

chinahorse 17-02-2017 01:54 PM

Take ya jumper off then!

I'm gagging for a cuppa.

Cacoethes 17-02-2017 02:04 PM

Hey guys!

Hope you enjoy the museum Luna!

It is a bit warm today which is good! It is very cloudy though.

How are we all?

chinahorse 17-02-2017 02:19 PM

Hey beckie :)

Cacoethes 17-02-2017 02:36 PM

Hi Lillie! :)
How are you?

chinahorse 17-02-2017 03:17 PM

I'm dressed and had a cuppa and feeling a bit more human.

How're you? Got much on today?

[Luna] 17-02-2017 03:21 PM

I'm at the museum, I been taking photographs while E makes a model plane.
How are you guys doing?

chinahorse 17-02-2017 03:30 PM

I'd love to see some of them. Your photos are ace!

not_so_insig 17-02-2017 03:31 PM

I have returned from my coffee with my friend. It was good to have a catchup. I was at a retail park and I thought that I would go into outfit there. Came out with 3 tops...oops.

chinahorse 17-02-2017 03:34 PM

Glad you had a nice catch up dawn. And oops but yay for new toPs. What are they like?

not_so_insig 17-02-2017 03:38 PM

One has a cat face one, one is a black waterfall cardigan and the other is off white with a load of red flowers on. I don't normally go for flowers but it was so pretty and they had my size I went for it.

chinahorse 17-02-2017 03:40 PM

They sound lovely and very wearable.
