I'm grumpy! How are you?

Cacoethes 23-12-2016 09:42 PM

Any particular reason for being grumpy or just one of those days?

How are you Lorraine?

Voldemort 23-12-2016 09:45 PM

Evening all.

Sketchy 23-12-2016 09:46 PM

I'm sorry to hear you are grumpy. I hope your ok.

I'm ok thanks Beckie. How are you?

Hello Amy, how are you?

Voldemort 23-12-2016 09:48 PM

I'm impatient. Tomorrow at 3ish I'm getting out of here for 2 nights and I want it to be now!

How are you, Lorraine?

Serendipity. 23-12-2016 09:48 PM

I am feeling sorry for myself because I'm allll aloooone over Christmas!

Hey Beckie and Amy, how are you both?

Serendipity. 23-12-2016 09:49 PM

Oh that's exciting Amy! Any plans?

Voldemort 23-12-2016 09:50 PM

Just chill out, have Christmas dinner and relax basically! I can't wait.

Sketchy 23-12-2016 09:54 PM

Amy I'm really happy for you. I hope you have a nice relaxing time.

Hannah, I'm sorry to hear you'll be alone. Do you have any plans?

Voldemort 23-12-2016 09:57 PM

Thanks. I'm delighted.

What are your plans for the weekend?

Cacoethes 23-12-2016 10:01 PM

I'm ok thanks Lorraine.

Hi amy! Glad to hear you're getting out for Christmas. Not long now! :)

Awww Hannah. Sorry to hear you'll be alone for Christmas. Hope you can still do something nice though

Sketchy 23-12-2016 10:01 PM

Tomorrow I'm going to my dad's house for a few days. My sister will be there too, but she's working night shift on Christmas Eve because she's a nurse. We're just having a quiet xmas because it's difficult at this time without my mum. I'm bringing monopoly though, so it might not be that quiet, as we will likely argue over that. I'm a bad loser. And a bad winner.

Voldemort 23-12-2016 10:04 PM

Sounds good to me, Lorraine! Monopoly does bring out the worst in people though.

Sketchy 23-12-2016 10:06 PM

I know. It's a horrible game when you really think about it. But fun.

Voldemort 23-12-2016 10:07 PM

Aye it is.

Cacoethes 23-12-2016 10:08 PM

Ah yes. Monopoly! Destroyer of relationships!

The worst game we ever played for Christmas was Risk. Me and my mum and sister got bored after about 2 hours, but my step dad and brothers were sooo competitive and they played for hours and hours!! Then one of my brothers stormed out when one of my other brothers won. Was all quite funny though!

Voldemort 23-12-2016 10:09 PM

Board games and alcohol don't mix at all.

Sketchy 23-12-2016 10:10 PM

Board games and families are always a volatile combination.

Voldemort 23-12-2016 10:10 PM

That too!

Cacoethes 23-12-2016 10:14 PM

Yep! Alcohol + families + board games = disaster

Serendipity. 23-12-2016 10:29 PM

I enjoy alcohol and board games.

Voldemort 23-12-2016 10:58 PM

So do I! One of my brothers can be a right ******** when it comes to drink and board games though.

Serendipity. 23-12-2016 11:00 PM

I don't think my family has ever had a real argument over a board game! Literally everything else, but not board games!

Buttons. 24-12-2016 06:43 AM

Alcohol+board games is awesome. As is charades-only really fun at Christmas time, after a fair amount of booze and with an insane family.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 08:37 AM

I don't have a big enough family to make charades and things fun :(

They used to make us play charades at the after school club I went to, I was always horribly self conscious! As obviously I wasn't drunk then :P

Happy Christmas Eve guys. How are you all today?

Wonderland. 24-12-2016 08:59 AM

Hey Hannah lovely. Got any plans today?

I have the same problem with my family. Boooo.

You charade filled after-school club sounds absolutely cringe worthy! How could you not be drunk doing that?!

I'm going over to mums today, I need to pack. Ugh I hate packing. But a teensy bit excited though. Although cringe for huge family dinner out.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 09:12 AM

Hey Amy! Do you know I keep meaning to message you to see how you're doing but I have no organisational skills :P

Today I am going into work to sit there all day doing **** all probably!

Haha, I know, it would have been so much better if they'd got us drunk first :P

Packing is evil. I hope you have a lovely time at your mum's though, and that the dinner out goes okay. How long are you staying with your mum for?

Wonderland. 24-12-2016 09:40 AM

Haha, no worries my organisational skills are zilch also. We shall have to meet up in the new year some time when you aren't working.

Hopefully you and your colleagues will find some fun way to spend the shift! Can you take a dvd in to watch with the residents or something?

I'm staying at mums just for 2 nights and coming back some time boxing day. Thank you I'm sure it will all go okay, just anxieties. But have plenty of fags so I can escape outside if I need!

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:52 AM

Yes, we definitely need to meet up soon, it would be so lovely to see you!

We have no clients in because clearly everyone is too busy with Christmas to want to spend it here, and I have no colleagues in today either. I am literally just sitting here with **** all to do!

I hope you have a lovely time. Escaping when you need to is good, and remember we're here! I will probably just be sitting on ryl all Christmas :P

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 11:43 AM

Happy Christmas eve guys!!

I'll probably be on ryl quite a bit tomorrow as well because once all the presents are opened in the morning, everything gets very boring!

How are we all?

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 11:59 AM

Hi Beckie! Oh good, you can keep me company :P how are you today?

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 12:16 PM


I'm good thanks!
Watching the orginal willy wonka and the chocolate factory. Haven't seen it in years! It's pretty much the only thing on.
Miracle on 34th street is on later but I'm gonna miss it because I'll be travelling!

tiptoes 24-12-2016 12:17 PM

You have just made my day!! Goes in search of the time..

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 12:20 PM

Oh my goodness, I haven't seen that in forever! I kind of want to watch it now!

Beckie! You need to find a way to watch it! You did promise!

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 12:36 PM

Willy wonka is a brilliant film. I used to have it on video!
Although I made the mistake of watching it when I was nil by mouth one time and I was just like choocoollateee

I did promise! And I dont break my promises!
I'll download it now ready for when I come home after Christmas!

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 12:44 PM

Oh no, that would be so upsetting haha! :(

Good! I will be checking that you have!

I'm so bored! And I feel sick. I'm feeling so sorry for myself right now :P

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 01:10 PM

It was! Haha!

Oh no! Feeling sick is awful!! Any reason or just random nausea?

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 01:15 PM

I have no idea! I think I may have some kind of bug, it feels like that kind of sick! Hopefully it will go away soon!

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 01:17 PM

Oh no! Hopefully it's not a bug. Bugs are horrible.
Hope it passes soon!

I'm watching despicable me now. My brother should be here soonish.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 02:01 PM


I hope you have a lovely time with your family Beckie! :)

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 05:17 PM

Thanks Hannah :)

Had a fun journey here singing (shouting) along to some very loud music!
Just arrived. Jasmine is in total overdrive and it turns out that one of my brothers have taught her 'dabbing'. She doesn't know what dabbing is but she's been doing it as part of her dancing with my sister

Buttons. 24-12-2016 05:33 PM

Must confess I also don't know what dabbing is!

I finally got my hair done, bloody expensive but look slightly less like a prat. My dad is picking me up and bringing me over to their's for lunch with them and my grandma, then one of them will bring me home and I will probably be lonely and stalking this thread :P

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 05:43 PM

I didn't know until I Googled it.
I don't know how to explain it!

Sounds good Katy! I love getting my hair done! It is expensive though :/

I'll also be stalking this thread quite a bit.
Although there is no wifi here!! D:

Hi everyone. How are we all?

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 05:59 PM

I knoooowww :'(
It's my step grandparents place and they are old and they do have wifi but they turn it off most of the time because they don't have unlimited data. Which is sooo weird and my step dad keeps trying to get them to change it but they're like...no.

Hi Lorraine. How are you?

Sketchy 24-12-2016 06:04 PM

I'm ok thanks. I'm over at my dad's house for a few days. We already started the board games and had a game of scrabble. I lost and am in a sulk.

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 06:17 PM

Sounds good! Apart from the scrabble bit!
I'm sure you'll have plenty of chances to win other games!

My mum is cooking a casserole and we've started on the baileys and the prosecco will be coming out soon I imagine!

Sketchy 24-12-2016 06:29 PM

That sounds lovely Beckie. We've already had a gin and tonic. Dad is making vegetarian sausage and mash for dinner tonight and we're having some beer with it. Yum.

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 06:36 PM

Ooo veggie sausage and mash! Nom!!

We are all watching penguins of Madagascar!
