Glad it was okay! Maths is horrible!!

Oh no, how did you manage to break it? Getting another one tomorrow is a good plan!

Yeah I did eventually! Been trying to get it sorted all week!

Are you up to much this evening?

Cacoethes 12-01-2017 06:36 PM

Maths is horrible indeed!! I hate it with a burning passion!

I tripped over the cable and instead if just coming out like it should do, the metal bit snapped in half! Grrrrr!

Glad you got it sorted eventually! Gp surgeries can b Le a right pain!

I'm not up to much. Pretty bored tbh!!

Sketchy 12-01-2017 07:22 PM

Hello everyone, I'm back.

I ended up meeting my dad in town. I'm home now and sitting in the living room for a bit rather than hide in my room.

Beckie, I'm glad college went ok.

Hannah, I'm glad you got your appointment sorted.

Cacoethes 12-01-2017 07:24 PM

That sounds nice Lorraine.
And well done for managing to stay in your living room :)

Sketchy 12-01-2017 07:33 PM

Thank you. I've also put the washing machine on, so I'm very productive. What are you up to?

Cacoethes 12-01-2017 07:36 PM

That's really good :)

I'm just watching eastenders. Haven't seen it in a while!

Sketchy 12-01-2017 07:39 PM

I haven't seen eastenders since I was really little. I'm watching the goldbergs.

I just realised I forgot to put the detergent in the washing machine, so I'll have to do it again. What an idiot I am!

Cacoethes 12-01-2017 07:48 PM

I like the Goldbergs.

Oh no! That's annoying!

Sketchy 12-01-2017 07:52 PM

I know. I'm such an idiot. Oh well, easily fixed.

I love the goldbergs. So funny.

Wonderland. 12-01-2017 08:01 PM

Hey lovelys :)

Shame on your cable for tripping you over Bex.

Nevermind Lorraine, I'm sure we've all done it.

Sketchy 12-01-2017 08:09 PM

Has anyone ever tried vegetarian Colin the caterpillar sweets from marks and Spencer's? I have a bag. Yum.

Cacoethes 12-01-2017 08:55 PM

You're not an idiot Lorraine, we've all.done the same or similar at some point!

Hi amy! How are you?

I've never tried them Lorraine. I don't have a marks and Spencer near me.
Well, I kind of do but it's in the retail park which is on the outskirts of town so I can never be bothered to go there as it's the opposite direction to town!

not_so_insig 12-01-2017 08:56 PM

I had to wash my clothes twice before because the pod hadn't disingrated properly. Never had that happen before. Unfortunately I am allergic to washing powder so I have to use pods or gel.

The candle I am burning keeps on going out despite there being lots of wax left. It's rather annoying. It must be faulty.

Sketchy 12-01-2017 08:59 PM

Thanks guys. I'm re washing the clothes.

Dawn, I hope you have other candles. I haven't used a scented candle in ages.

not_so_insig 12-01-2017 09:02 PM

Oh yes I have plenty of candles Lorraine. 3 different people gave me candles for Christmas. The one I have currently came from my yankee candle advent calendar though.

Sketchy 12-01-2017 09:03 PM

Yankee candles are nice. So many different scents.

Cacoethes 12-01-2017 09:04 PM

I always use pods because I just find it so much easier!

I love scented candles! I have one that my brother got me for my birthday which is nice. I might light it tomorrow!

Sketchy 12-01-2017 09:05 PM

Good plan Beckie.

Cacoethes 12-01-2017 09:10 PM


I'm going to be going to bed soon. So tired! Looking forward to being able to sleep in tomorrow!

Sketchy 12-01-2017 09:12 PM

Good night Beckie. Enjoy your sleep.

Cacoethes 12-01-2017 09:14 PM

Thanks :)
Good night, hope you sleep well.

not_so_insig 12-01-2017 09:24 PM

Yankee candles are nice. I have one in my happy box. Unfortunately I have discovered that I am allergic to berry trifle scent. I had a candle holder for Christmas with my name on.

Sketchy 12-01-2017 09:27 PM

That's nice you have your name on it.

not_so_insig 12-01-2017 10:50 PM

My candle has gone out again. But this time it's due to the fact that it's run out of wax.

I have got the slow cooker out. I am doing a full English breakfast in it for tomorrow. Only bacon beans and sausages though.

Sketchy 12-01-2017 10:57 PM

Sounds like it will be good to wake up to breakfast. I've never used a slow cooker before.

Wonderland. 12-01-2017 11:41 PM

Just finished watching White House Down, love that film :)

Sketchy 12-01-2017 11:52 PM

Hope you enjoyed it. I'm motivating myself to get ready for bed.

Buttons. 13-01-2017 02:48 AM

I'm hopeless at cooking most things but I do love a cooked breakfast when someone who can cook does it (altohugh my request is basically sausages, fried eggs (vitally done properly :P), potentially beans and toast and a hash brown, love smell of bacon but hate the taste no idea why-weirdo0. V impressed you can do your own-I'm hopeless in the kitchen.

Hope everyone managed good sleep.

not_so_insig 13-01-2017 11:42 AM

Yes I slept well.

My breakfast was slightly burnt but it was still edible. First time I have done it in a slow cooker so I will do it for less time next time. Or try a different slow cooker (I have a choice of two).

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 12:20 PM

Hey guys.
Full English breakfasts are awesome!
I havent done one in ages!
I need to start using my slow cooker. I got it ages ago but never used it!

not_so_insig 13-01-2017 12:37 PM

You can do all sorts of stuff in your slow cooker Beckie. The last thing that I did before today was a jacket potato and beans. Next time I have a whole chicken I am going to cook it in my slow cooker.

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 12:55 PM

That sounds nice!
I've had dinner at other people's when they've cooked in a slow cooker and it's always been delicious!!

not_so_insig 13-01-2017 01:19 PM

Do you have a Facebook account Beckie? There's a slow cooker slimming world group. Might be worth joining.

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 01:23 PM

Yes I do.
That sounds good! I'll look it up. Thanks :)

Have you got much planned for today Dawn?

not_so_insig 13-01-2017 01:52 PM

Nothing much. I am going to my parents house layer though if it starts snowing then I may have to come home early as they live quite high up.

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 01:55 PM

That sounds good. Hopefully the snow holds off!
We've had no sign of snow here yet!

not_so_insig 13-01-2017 02:06 PM

I had snow yesterday but there's none atm. But it's forecast for later.

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 03:37 PM

I heard it was meant to snow today but we have nothing!
It is incredibly cold though!
Home with the heating on now.

not_so_insig 13-01-2017 05:11 PM

Something strange is going on. I ordered a tshirt from an Australian company back in September. Never received it despite sending 4 emails enquiring where it was. Filed a claim with PayPal in December and got my money back. Today I received a email saying it's been posted. So it looks like I may be getting a free tshirt. If I don't then I am not too bothered because I got my money back.

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 05:25 PM

That's weird. You never know with buying things online!

not_so_insig 13-01-2017 07:09 PM

Yeah Beckie. It is apparently tracked so if it shows up as coming to my address then it's definitely been posted. It's a Keeping Up Appearances tshirt so I hope that it does come as I was disappointed that it didn't come in the first place especially as I had previously good service with them.

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 08:16 PM

Fingers crossed you get it!!

Chels is over for the weekend. We're cooking butternut squash and bacon risotto. It's all been a bit of an experiment because neither of us have cooked butternut squash or risotto before. And the risotto doesn't have instructions on how to cook it which is very helpful :eyeroll:
Think we've managed it though!

Sketchy 13-01-2017 08:43 PM

That sounds good Beckie. Hope you and Chels have a good time.

I hope you get your tshirt Dawn.

I'm not long home and just out a bubble bath. So relaxing. I was out today with my dad and we went for dinner. Tomorrow I'm going to my sister's,so it's a busy weekend for me.

How is everyone?

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 08:49 PM

Thanks Lorraine. The meal was lovely!!

Bubble bath sounds awesome. Sounds like you've had a good day :)

Sketchy 13-01-2017 09:21 PM

Glad you enjoyed your meal.

Anyone else freezing? I can't heat up. I have the heating on and I'm in my bed. I must just be getting old.

not_so_insig 13-01-2017 09:28 PM

I am cold too Lorraine. I don't think that it's snowing atm.

Sketchy 13-01-2017 09:31 PM

We haven't had snow today either.

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 09:48 PM

I'm rather cold too!
No snow for us!
Hopefully it stays that way as we are planning to get the train to the cinema tomorrow.

Wonderland. 13-01-2017 09:50 PM

I was cold before but now all cosy in my fleecy pjs :)

What you planning on seeing at the cinema Bex?

Cacoethes 13-01-2017 09:54 PM

Fleecy PJs are the best!
I'm going to stick my electric blanket on in a bit.

The assassins creed movie. I LOVE the assassins creed games so am very excited to see the movie!
