Hey Lillie, could you prioritise what errands are most important, get them done then go back to bed? We're going out with J's family this afternoon.

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 11:25 AM

Hey guys.
It's a black galaxy s7.
I've ordered a marauders map phone case :D

Luna has good suggestions Lillie.

Hope you enjoy yourself Luna!

I'm going to see Jasmine today:)

[Luna] 29-04-2017 11:29 AM

My mum has a marauders map phone cover. Looks cool!

Yay for seeing Jasmine, you got much planned with her?

E and I are currently watching Spider man 2.

Buttons. 29-04-2017 12:20 PM

Marauders map phone case sounds awesome *jealous* then again I am wearing a map of middle earth skirt so... :P

Buttons. 29-04-2017 12:21 PM

Luna is Spiderman worth a watch? Think I've only seen 1.

[Luna] 29-04-2017 12:51 PM

I quite enjoy the Spider-Man films with Tobey Maguire. They don't take themselves too seriously.
How are you Katy?

chinahorse 29-04-2017 12:57 PM

Ooo jealous of that phone beckie and yay for seeing jasmine! Whatre you guys getting up to? The phone case sounds awesome.

Hope you have a good time out Luna. Was the film any good?

Woah tgat skirt sounds amazing Katy!

I've been out since 8.45. Just got home. Done all my errands and bought lots of bits for a scrap book for my friends birthday.

Buttons. 29-04-2017 01:01 PM

Thankies :)

Sounds like a v productive morning Lily!

I'm still fairly upset/pissed off after psych appointment yesterday but have decided to stop sulking and try to get out and about and distract-hopefully if weather holds and support worker agrees could take my dog round the dam again-fresh air+happy dog+exercise, fingers crossed!

[Luna] 29-04-2017 01:07 PM

Thanks guys. I've seen the film so many times but still enjoy it. I annoyed Ethan because I kept asking silly questions. We're now watching Finding nemo.

I've just had a bath with one of my lush bath bombs and now I smell like lemon sherburt!

Sounds very productive Lillie, well done!!

I hope you're able to go out Katy, sounds like the distraction would be good.

not_so_insig 29-04-2017 02:16 PM

I am knackered. Stupid neighbours dog kept on barking all night and kept me awake. If it does it again I am complaining to the council. The voices are kicking off today because I am tired but I have taken prn.

Shy_Bambi 29-04-2017 03:12 PM

Good afternoon everyone! You all seem to be doing okay which makes me happy :D

chinahorse 29-04-2017 03:45 PM

Hi Rebecca and dawn:)

I can't decide what to do with my scrapbook bits for my friend.

Shy_Bambi 29-04-2017 05:25 PM

Oh that sounds like fun. Is it for crafty things like pictures you make from felt and stuff or photos or something?

chinahorse 29-04-2017 05:30 PM

I've stuck in Washi tape and ribbon and luggage tags and fabric and things. I have sections. So far I have once upon a British summer time I was thankful for, I went to visit, I made future plans.

I need two more. Help! I'm not crafty so it looks **** though

Sketchy 29-04-2017 05:40 PM

Hello everyone.

Sorry you didn't get much sleep Dawn. Hopefully you will sleep better tonight.

A scrap book sounds good Lillie. I bet it looks good.

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 05:41 PM

Katy where did you get a map of middle earth skirt that is amazing!!!!

We went to the soft play centre. It was nice:)

chinahorse 29-04-2017 05:41 PM

HI lorraine :) how're you today?

Sketchy 29-04-2017 05:45 PM

I'm really lazy today. Haven't left the flat, even though I had planned to. Too tired, so just going to accept I need to stay in. I can go out tomorrow.

Think I'll change my bed linen and do a wash, so I'll have done something productive.

chinahorse 29-04-2017 05:59 PM

Listenening to you body is always good dawn.

Fresh bed linen always makes me feel better so I hope it does you too.

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 06:03 PM

Fresh bed linen is awesome :)
Nothing wrong with staying in if you are tired.

How are you Lillie?

Shy_Bambi 29-04-2017 06:03 PM

That book sounds amazing already, I'm sure it looks awesome!

Sketchy 29-04-2017 06:06 PM

I've just changed my linen and switched on the washing machine. Fresh bed linen always makes me feel better too.

What's everyone up to this evening?

I'm going to relax and watch casualty.

Wonderland. 29-04-2017 06:09 PM

Lillie could you do a section on reasons why your friend is awesome or what makes them them? (assuming I've understood correctly and it is something you are making for your friend)

Weekends are for chilling Lorraine, be kind to yourself!


Sketchy 29-04-2017 06:10 PM

That's true Amy. I'm feeling less guilty now.

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 06:44 PM

I want to buy lots of pretty things but I have to resist!
:'(

chinahorse 29-04-2017 06:57 PM

Good topic Amy I'll pop tgat in.

Oh it's always so hard to resist buying pretty things!

Wonderland. 29-04-2017 07:04 PM

Save up Bex, then you can spendddd ;-)

Glad to be of help Lillie!

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 07:19 PM

I will have to save up!
It's hard though because in losing weight and will hopefully lose lots more I don't really want to spend loads on clothes if they're not gonna fit in a few months time!
Life is hard :p

How are you both?

Wonderland. 29-04-2017 07:32 PM

Primarni is your friend! (As long as you can control yourself and not buy the whole shop!)

I buy most a lot of my clothes from there as I've been up and down with my weight over the years. Went in there the other day and got loads and spent less than 50.

I am goooood, but a tired teddy. My provisional came through yesterday!!!!!!
They gave me 1 year licence so gotta get on it!

You up to much this evening?

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 07:37 PM

I can never find anything I really like in Primark!

Yay for your provisional licence!!! :hop:
I'm STILL waiting for mine! :(
I did get a letter saying I've been issued a 5 year licence (which surprised me!) And that was weeks ago. I am so impatient!

I'm not up to anything really!
How about You?

[Luna] 29-04-2017 07:41 PM

Evening guys!

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 07:43 PM

Hey Luna! How are You? :)

[Luna] 29-04-2017 07:44 PM

I'm good. How was you? How was Jasmine?

Wonderland. 29-04-2017 07:48 PM

Thats odd, I got my driving licence yesterday and then the letter explaining it came today. Maybe you should ring them because your licence has been issued so it should have arrived by now I would have thought :confused:

And how the bloody hell did you manage to get a 5 year one and I only get 1 year?! Pfft are they trying to say we don't really trust me in a car but we'll give you a shot!

I use primark for basic thing like vest and pj's, sometimes jeans, and underwear. But thats literally what I live in so all good! They have loads of HP tops in my local on atm.

I'm just cooking my tea, jacket spud which surprisingly I haven't had in a few days!!! And just a bit of tidying.

chinahorse 29-04-2017 07:54 PM

Hey Luna how's your day been?

I agree primarni is your friend. You just need to look hard and go early when it's not busy!

Yay for licenses coming through :) I really can't wait to learn to drive either!

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 07:58 PM

I'm good thanks Luna!
Jasmine was very happy today!

Hmmm. I might have to contact them then Amy!
Yeah, I don't have a clue why they trusted me with a 5 year licence!! Lol! :p

I'll have to pop into Primark at some point and have a look round!

Wonderland. 29-04-2017 08:10 PM

Hope you're okay Luna!

It's a good place to get kids clothes aswell Bex for cheap.

Here's to us all being on the road soooooon!

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 08:14 PM

I always avoid the kids section because I could spend loads on clothes for Jasmine!!

Would be soooo great to drive!

chinahorse 29-04-2017 08:18 PM

But the mini clothes are so cute! But yes very dangerous as it all adds up.

Someone do my budgeting for me? I promised myself I'd do it if I got housing benefit which I have. And I need to start sticking to it once I've done it!

Wonderland. 29-04-2017 08:19 PM

You should just take cash with you if you go in the kids section, or buy a gift card so you've only got a set amount with to spend.

You'll be able to learn once you get the card through, so not long to wait as they should sort it pronto! Just need to save them pennies!

Shy_Bambi 29-04-2017 08:20 PM

I'm terrible with buying clothes that don't fit! Except I buy them too small. I'm trying to lose weight but it's tough! I buy smaller clothes thinking Yeah I'll fit in this next month! Lol!

A gift card sounds like a good idea to me.

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 08:32 PM

Wish I could help you Lillie but I'm crap at budgeting too!

Good plan Amy!

Wonderland. 29-04-2017 08:40 PM

Lillie try starting off with writing down what regular monthly incomings (benefits/wage? etc) and outgoings you have (utility bills/rent/phone contract etc). Those are the most important numbers. The next things for outgoings would be food, basis toiletries, and then transport. And then luxuries - so anything you don't really need, but want, or need to pay to go and do.

I think I've included everything on that, but can't be certain as head is a bit mushy. Google should have some budget templates if you search though to make sure you have everything included.

Don't pressure yourself to do it if you are too tired though.

Hey Bambi, how are you?

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 08:50 PM

Amy has good ideas!!!

Shy_Bambi 29-04-2017 09:59 PM

Omg casualty was unbelievable! Who watched it? D:

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 10:14 PM

I watched it!!
I did not see that coming!!

Sketchy 29-04-2017 10:16 PM

I just watched casualty too. That was unexpected! And sad.

Shy_Bambi 29-04-2017 10:20 PM

Very sad. I sent off for his autograph last week! He's one of my faves, I still can't believe it. That was one heck of a curveball!

Cacoethes 29-04-2017 10:23 PM

Very very sad!
And sooooo unexpected!

Sketchy 29-04-2017 10:25 PM

I can't wait for next week, since I'm sure this will become a big story, I hope.
