I love how basically everyone here hates maths! :p
I might go for a coffee afterwards.
I'm going to try going to clubbercise tonight if my anxiety doesn't get the better of me!
At least it will be dark so no one can see me :p

Glad it went ok Lillie!

Sore throats suck dawn! I find lemsip helps, but then I use lemsip for basically any ailment!

chinahorse 09-03-2017 12:50 PM

What on earth is that beckie?

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 01:05 PM

I might have a lemsip Beckie. I have had a sweet though. I have a runny nose too.

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 01:07 PM

Speaking of lemsip does anyone remember the user lemsip?

[Luna] 09-03-2017 01:37 PM

I'm also intrigued as to what clubbercise is, Beckie.

Sorry you have a sore throat, that's horrible. *sends sympathy*

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 01:50 PM

Thanks Luna.

I have listened to my new record. It sounds ok so I have left feedback on ebay.

chinahorse 09-03-2017 02:28 PM

Glad it sounds ok dawn.

Gargh I want to buy things because I'm sad about my foot.

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 03:48 PM

My clothes order came before and I have been on my walk around the park at the bottom of the road.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 04:04 PM

Clubbercise is basically a nightclub type setting but you dance according to an instructor I believe. You get glow sticks and everything! Apparently it's 90's - present type music.
It should be fun!

Sketchy 09-03-2017 06:14 PM

Clubbercise sounds fun. Let us know how it goes.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 06:25 PM

Will do! I'm half looking forward to it and half terrified! Lol!

Howare you Lorraine?

Sketchy 09-03-2017 06:30 PM

I'm a bit blah but I'm allowing myself a quiet day and taking it easy. I'll need to go out tomorrow, so hopefully tomorrow will be a more productive day.

How are you? It's understandable to be half terrified, but it sounds like it will be a good laugh. Enjoy yourself.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 06:43 PM

A quiet day sounds good. You need those sometimes!

I'm ok thanks. Wondering whether to have dinner now or when I get back. The class doesn't end until 8:45pm which is a bit late to eat really. Will probably be best to have something now and give it time to settle. Class is at 8pm.

Sketchy 09-03-2017 07:18 PM

Sounds like a good plan. You'll be really hungry if you wait until afterwards.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 07:24 PM

That's true.

Are you up to anything this evening?

Sketchy 09-03-2017 07:25 PM

No, I'm just going to watch Netflix. I'm really tired today.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 07:30 PM

Sounds like a good plan! Are you watching anything in particular atm or just browsing?

Sketchy 09-03-2017 07:32 PM

Just browsing. I can't decide. Think I might just have a nap now.

Hiway202 09-03-2017 07:33 PM


I'm not going to read all 342 pages, but I thought I'd post.

So, yeah...

Don't really know how to contribute at the moment, but thought I'd start by saying hi.

Sketchy 09-03-2017 07:33 PM

Hi. Welcome to the thread.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 07:42 PM

I can never decide what to watch either!

Hello!! Welcome to the thread :)

Sketchy 09-03-2017 07:44 PM

I'm just not good with decisions. Just now I'm deciding whether to nap or to watch something. I think I'll put the heating on. It's cold.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 07:52 PM

I'm the same with netflix. It takes me forever to decide!

It is getting a bit chilly!

Sketchy 09-03-2017 07:56 PM

It's too cold for march. Scary to think it's already march.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 07:58 PM

I know! This year is going so fast!

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:00 PM

I'm looking forward to it getting warmer and lighter. It's weird, I used to prefer winter.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 08:05 PM

Me too.
It was quite warm and sunny earlier. We actually had to open a window on the bus!
It will be much easier to motivate myself to do more walking when it gets warm.

chinahorse 09-03-2017 08:06 PM

I'm looking forward to it also and I agree it was lovely today I even went out without a coat on

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:07 PM

That's what I'm thinking too. I want to do a lot more walking, but it'll be easier when it's warmer and lighter.

I'm finally starting to heat up.

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:08 PM

Hi Lillie. How are you?

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 08:08 PM

It was lovely and sunny here before. I saw a bungalow with an open window!

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:09 PM

Hi Dawn. How are you? I'm glad you got some sun.

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 08:11 PM

Apart from a sore throat I am ok Lorraine. I am currently listening to a record.

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:12 PM

I hope you feel better soon. Sore throats are horrible.

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 08:14 PM

Thanks. It's actually better than this morning as I have had it since I woke up. I tried on my clothes order (which was swimwear) & thankfully they fit.

chinahorse 09-03-2017 08:16 PM

Yay for your order fitting though sorry to hear about your throat dawn.

I'm not too great. My foot is infected they think and my graft has failed. Got an appointment tomorrow.

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:16 PM

It's always nice to treat yourself to new clothes. You going swimming again soon? I haven't been swimming since I was in primary school. My skin doesn't tolerate the chlorine very well.

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:17 PM

I'm sorry to hear that Lillie. I hope the appointment goes well and you get the help you need.

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 08:17 PM

Glad it's better dawn.

Sorry to hear that Lillie :( I hope your appointment goes ok tomorrow.

I have to leave at 7:45. I'm so so anxious!!!

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:19 PM

Good luck Beckie. I'm sure it will be fun dancing away to the music.

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 08:20 PM

I went swimming yesterday Lorraine. I bought myself a swim top and swim leggings plus an new costume. The swim leggings are for days when I don't feel so confident about my scars even though I have been swimming the past 4 years and nobody has said anything.

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:22 PM

Glad you got out for a swim. Hope you had fun.

not_so_insig 09-03-2017 08:26 PM

Oh yes I did. It wasn't too crowded nor were they any kiddies. I am going for a eye test soon so if they decide I need new glasses I have decided to purchase some prescription goggles.

Sketchy 09-03-2017 08:31 PM

That will be worthwhile since you go swimming a lot.

chinahorse 09-03-2017 08:35 PM

Thanks guys.

I'm sure it'll be okay beckie.

Swimming is so much fun!

Moonlight Princess 09-03-2017 08:55 PM

Also I did not know that prescription googles were a thing! You learn something new every day!

chinahorse 09-03-2017 08:59 PM

I kinda thought it was possible but yeah thought they were out of the realms of possibility for normal folk.

Moonlight Princess 09-03-2017 09:03 PM

I probably wouldn't have any need for them even if I do go swimming. I have a really buoyant bum and just keep bobbing near the surface!

Cacoethes 09-03-2017 10:09 PM

Clubbercise was actually amazing!
Everyone was sooo nice and the instructor spoke to me at the beginning and the end and said I did really well and was glad I enjoyed it. I said I was anxious and she said she totally understood and shared some of her experiences with me.
I can't wait for next week!!
I'm actually buzzing!

Nymphadora Tonks 09-03-2017 10:13 PM

I went swimming yesterday and just have to squint through my goggles, if I really get into it I would consider buying prescription ones, even with a buoyant bum Kiran haha :p. Another trait we share.
Ah Beckie, that's awesome!!! It sounds such an energetic fun type of exercise
