Eska 31-08-2017 01:25 PM

I'm ok. Ended up sleeping most of the morning though, and I'm still trying to work out what to do with my life. It's a dilemma!

How are you Beckie and Dawn?

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 01:52 PM

Hey guys

Ive just had a driving lesson.
I booked an extra one for sunday as my test is on Tuesday and felt I needed a bit more driving around!
Although I did a mock test today and I would have passed but didn't do a left reverse and I'm awful at those :p

Eska, you should go to asda.
That's always what I do! Lol :p

Eska 31-08-2017 02:00 PM

There is no Asda here! Otherwise I'm sure all my problems would be solved.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 02:03 PM

Oh no!!!
Thats a shame.
Asda is life.

Have you got anywhere you can go for a coffee or something?

Eska 31-08-2017 02:49 PM

I'm meeting a friend (actually my ex :/ ) for coffee now.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 02:52 PM

Hope it goes ok!

not_so_insig 31-08-2017 03:40 PM

Afternoon all.

I have been for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 03:46 PM

Hi dawn
That sounds good.

Ive just been to asda.
Gonna watch dance moms (love the trash!) :p
And then do a workout video

Aubergine 31-08-2017 05:03 PM


Cacoethes 31-08-2017 05:22 PM

Hi aubergine!
How are you?

Aubergine 31-08-2017 05:26 PM

Hey Beckie. How're you doing? How was your workout DVD?

I'm OK. Went out for a walk with my Mum earlier.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 05:29 PM

Im still doing it.
There are little breaks in the video.
Its fun!

That sounds nice.
Is it nice weather where you are?

Aubergine 31-08-2017 05:46 PM

I'm glad it's fun! Breaks sound good.

Yes it's been lovely weather. Going a bit overcast now.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 05:55 PM

Breaks are needed!
It's quite energetic and I'm not really an energetic person :p

Glad it was nice.
It went overcast here ans rained for about 10 seconds and now its sunny again!

Sketchy 31-08-2017 06:02 PM

Hello all.

I'm home from my three days away to Arran. So tired now.

Aubergine 31-08-2017 06:11 PM

Energetic is supposed to be good for you. My Mum goes to the gym allllll the time and she seems quite healthy. Me? Not so much...

I bet you are tired, Lorraine. It sounds like it was good though. I loved the picture of your friend the robin.

Sketchy 31-08-2017 06:12 PM

Thanks. I also made friends with a cat who let me pat him.

How are you?

Aubergine 31-08-2017 06:14 PM

That sounds lovely. I love friendly cats. :)

I'm OK. Tired.

Sketchy 31-08-2017 06:19 PM

Maybe try have a rest.

The cat was certainly friendly. He rolled onto his back to show his belly. So cute.

Aubergine 31-08-2017 06:28 PM

I'm sat on my bed watching How I Met Your Mother waiting for the water to heat up so I can have a bath. It's restful. I'm just... Not great. I'm looking forward to sitting in the hot water, but my boiler is about a million years old, takes forever to heat up, and is super expensive to run. It'll be worth it though.

Oh that is cute! What colour was he?

Sketchy 31-08-2017 06:33 PM

A nice hot bath might do you some good. Very relaxing. I hope it helps.

A lovely ginger cat.

Aubergine 31-08-2017 06:38 PM

Thank you. I'm going to put some lavender bath salts in it and then get into my pyjamas.

Ginger cats are so pretty. :) What are you up to at the moment?

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 06:39 PM

That sounds cool Lorraine!
Any day with a friendly cat has to be a good day!

Hope up enjoy your bath aubergine.
Sounds like it will be worth it

Sketchy 31-08-2017 06:46 PM

Lavender salts sound a good plan. I find lavender soothing. I love my lavender oil.

I'm just lying in bed. I'm catching up on washings too.

Sketchy 31-08-2017 06:46 PM

Hey Beckie. How are you?

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 06:49 PM

Im ok thanks.
Just had a shower and put washing away.
Watching the goldbergs now

Sketchy 31-08-2017 06:52 PM

I like the Goldbergs. Very funny.

Aubergine 31-08-2017 06:53 PM

Thanks Beckie. It will be worth it. Lavender is good isn't it, Lorraine? I find it soothing too.

Washing is a good plan. Do you have somewhere outside to hang it?

Sketchy 31-08-2017 06:55 PM

I do, but I'll just hang it on my clothes horse. I've been for a shower so I'm in my pyjamas, so can't go out.

Lavender is lovely. I hope you have a nice bath.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 06:58 PM

Looks like pajamas for all! Lol!

I have the random urge to climb mount Snowdon

Aubergine 31-08-2017 07:00 PM

Clothes horses are good. That's what I have too. I can go out the back and hang things on the line, but I prefer to use the clothes horse.

Pyjamas are great!

Right now, Beckie?!

Sketchy 31-08-2017 07:05 PM

I agree. Pyjamas are great. I'm glad to be in mine.

That is random Beckie.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 07:20 PM

I used to have a clothes horse before i got my washer dryer.
I love my washer dryer!! :p

Pajamas are awesome.
It should be socially acceptable to wear them all day.

Yep right now!
I know its a bit odd :p
Its impossible for me to get there though so sadly I will not be doing it!

Aubergine 31-08-2017 07:29 PM

Is it expensive to run, Beckie? I'm kind of glad you can't get to Snowdon right this second. It'd be dark before you got up there!

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 07:34 PM

It is a bit more experience. Couldn't say how much but as I live alone, I don't do a great deal of washing so its ok.

That is true!
I've asked my friend if she wants to do it so we're looking at next year because the cafe at the top is only open certain months and we need to build up some stamina!
I'd probably die if I tried it now tbh :p

not_so_insig 31-08-2017 07:37 PM

You could always get the train Beckie. Then visit electric mountain which is rather interesting.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 07:40 PM

I really want to climb it!
It will be an awesome challenge and I'm getting fitter now anyway.
I love waking if it's somewhere interesting!

What's electric mountain?

not_so_insig 31-08-2017 07:44 PM

Electric mountain is a power station inside a mountain. It's fed by pumping water from one lake to another. It's very interesting because you get to see the turbines.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 07:45 PM

That sounds really cool!

not_so_insig 31-08-2017 07:49 PM

You could always cycle down mount snowdon Beckie


Cacoethes 31-08-2017 07:51 PM

Oooo that could be fun!!

Eska 31-08-2017 07:53 PM

Climbing Snowdon is fun :) although it was tipping it down when I did it.

not_so_insig 31-08-2017 07:54 PM

Though you would have to work hard to beat a now 7 year old. Unless you're his sister.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 08:20 PM

Did you have to train a lot for it eska?

I probably wouldn't be able to beat that kid!
Especially as I havent ridden a bike in many years!
Although I hear it's just like riding a bike :p

not_so_insig 31-08-2017 08:37 PM

Lol Beckie.

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 08:49 PM


not_so_insig 31-08-2017 08:54 PM

I have a new candle going. It's called Autumn Night and it's a yankee candle.

Also I have ordered a new diary for 2018.

Eska 31-08-2017 08:58 PM

I didn't train at all... it was fine. Just took it steadily. You have to decide which route to do though!

Cacoethes 31-08-2017 09:10 PM

Sounds lovely Dawn!
I love scented candles

Ah ok!
I didnt think id have to do any training really because I like walking!
As long as its somewhere interesting!
Did you enioy it?

Eska 31-08-2017 09:17 PM

I did :)
