You need to get Netflix mildred!
It will change your life!!

Buttons. 16-08-2017 07:55 PM

Okay I'm now going to have to get some potatoes!

Hope everyone is okay :)

I'm letting myself have a few minutes of emo music woe then watching 101 Dalmatians because it is impossible to watch that and be sad :P

Aubergine 16-08-2017 07:55 PM

Enjoy the chicken, Katy.


Oh dear, Mildred. No fun getting soaked.


I've got Spotify on my phone so have mostly been listening to music. There's a TV here but I'm struggling a bit with the TV at the moment. I have also been people watching as my window faces inside the hospital over the atrium.

Buttons. 16-08-2017 07:55 PM

And Netflix is indeed awesome.

Sketchy 16-08-2017 07:56 PM

Join the Netflix club!!!! It's so good. But you do spend a lot of time just searching.

Do you like having a slow cooker Dawn? I don't have one, but my sister loves hers. She made a lovely mushroom stroganoff in it. So tasty.

Aubergine 16-08-2017 07:57 PM

Potatoes all round! How do you do them in the slow cooker, Dawn?


I'm sorry you're sad, Katy. 101 Dalmatians is an excellent plan!

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 07:58 PM

101 dalmations is an awesome film! It really is impossible to be sad when watching it!
Hope it cheers you up katy!

People watching is fun Aubergine!
I like to do that too!

I have a slow cooker but never used it.
I really should get it out!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 07:58 PM

People watching is good Aubergine. It's good you have music too. I don't know where I'd be without my iPod.

I hope you are ok Katy. Get watching those Disney films! :)

Buttons. 16-08-2017 08:00 PM

Ha ha I may fall asleep counting Dalmations instead of sheep :P

Aubergine 16-08-2017 08:01 PM

Sounds like an excellent way to get to sleep!

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:02 PM

Dalmations are better than sheep! :p

Although I do really like sheep as well

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:02 PM

Dalmations are cute! Not a bad way to go to sleep.

Buttons. 16-08-2017 08:11 PM

Indeed :D

The Worst Witch 16-08-2017 08:14 PM

101 Dalmations is not my favourite Disney movie, but that may be because when my sister was younger, that's all she wanted to watch. I like the little mermaid.

I shall have to think about Netflix! I've just bought a smart TV, so it probably makes sense to get it.

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:15 PM

Im not sure where the last couple of hours have gone!
Usually time drags on!

Little mermaid is a good one!
My favourite is Aladdin.
Its why I named my daughter Jasmine!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:15 PM

I really want some sweets! I will not buy sweets tomorrow! I am an adult damn it!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:16 PM

That's really nice Beckie. Jasmine is such a pretty name.

Aubergine 16-08-2017 08:19 PM

I love the name Jasmine. It's pretty.


I haven't seen a Disney film for years!

The Worst Witch 16-08-2017 08:21 PM

Why can't you buy sweets, Lorraine?

I like Aladdin too, and The Lion King. The only disney film I cannot stand is Frozen, but if you listened to 'let it go' day in and day out every time it was tidy up time for roughly 3 years you'd hate it too! I'm glad the phase is over, although they're bringing out a new one. Also, every lesbian that I tell that I hate it curses me, because supposedly Elsa is gay and its a really strong girl power film. Apparently I should love it because it has a gay disney princess?!

I'm tired. I need to get some planning done - at least my laptop is open! And I have a cup of tea! Now I just need to work...

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:24 PM

I'm trying to be healthier Mildred. Maybe at the weekend I can have a sweetie.

That's good you have tea. That always helps for work. Tea makes everything better.

Aubergine 16-08-2017 08:25 PM

I have never seen frozen. My little cousin loves it!


You can do it, Mildred!

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:26 PM

I also like the name Jasmine because the shortening of it is 'Jas' and i quite like that too. Lots of her friends already call her Jas!

Omg I would hate Frozen too if I was subjected to that Mildred!!!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:26 PM

I've never seen frozen. It doesn't appeal to me. I'm not a fan of these cartoons and the princess thing never appeals to me.

Buttons. 16-08-2017 08:29 PM

Jasmine is a beautiful name :)

Yeah the song let it go ruined Frozen for me although before it was played to death Everywhere I quite liked it, I tend to like Idina Menzel's voice.

Favourite Disneys are Pocahontas, Mulan, Lion King...and a million others. Hunchback of notre dame close 4th.

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:31 PM

I went to see Frozen on the day it was released in cinemas. I knew straight away it was going to turn into a huge thing! Not quite as big as it got though!

Old Disney is better than new disney. No argument about it!!

Buttons. 16-08-2017 08:32 PM

True dat!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:34 PM

I like anything with Mickey Mouse, because I had a Mickey Mouse soft toy as a kid that I loved so much. I think it's in my Dad's loft somewhere.

Buttons. 16-08-2017 08:36 PM

I still have Mickey mouse egg cups from my visit to Disneyland Paris at age 8/9 or something.

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:36 PM

Aww thats cute Lorraine!

Its weird what little things we still have after so many years!

I still sleep with a toy rabbit that I've had since birth.
My mum said that they used to strap him into my carseat as practice before i was born :p

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:39 PM

That is so sweet Beckie!

I bet that was a good trip Katy.

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:42 PM

I want to go to disney again!
I went when i was like 5 so i dont remember it

RYL disney meet anyone?!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:45 PM

I'm planning on a lotto win, so yes!

Aubergine 16-08-2017 08:45 PM

Disney places are so busy! I'd rather go to the beach. :P

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:46 PM

That's true Aubergine. I'm bad with crowds. Maybe a quiet seaside place.

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:47 PM

Well if you win the lotto Lorraine, we can hire the entire Disney park out just for us!

Aubergine 16-08-2017 08:48 PM

Yes! Let's!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:49 PM

That's true. Let's do that! Okay, now the pressure is on for me to win the lotto!

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:52 PM

You've got to do it for the Distraction Crew, Lorraine!!
We're all counting on you!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:53 PM

Argh the pressure. Right I'll put a ticket on for the distraction crew. We can do this!!!

Aubergine 16-08-2017 08:53 PM

Hehe!

Buttons. 16-08-2017 08:53 PM

Lotto Disney park POA!!!!

Also Beckie that is really cute with the carseat thing. Unfortunately my childhood toy dog has had to be uncermoniously shoved down the back of the sofa so that my very much alive dog doesn't kill him :P

Buttons. 16-08-2017 08:54 PM

No pressure of course Lorraine...but my life will be destroyed if you don't win. Again, no pressure ;P

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 08:59 PM

Lol!! Yep no pressure Lorraine!! :p

Oh no Katy!! Your poor toy dog!

Sketchy 16-08-2017 08:59 PM

*cracks under pressure*

Aubergine 16-08-2017 09:07 PM

*glues back together *

Sketchy 16-08-2017 09:09 PM

Aww thank you . :)

Cacoethes 16-08-2017 09:14 PM

Haha! I love you guys

Aubergine 16-08-2017 09:14 PM

:) You're very welcome.

Aubergine 16-08-2017 09:14 PM

We love you too, Beckie.

Sketchy 16-08-2017 09:16 PM

We have a good wee thread here. It's certainly got me through some tough times.

It's starting to get dark earlier now.
