I need to go to the shops too, but I'm leaving it for tomorrow. I need food though, so I'm tempted to phone for a takeaway. Im already hungry. Been snacking on fruit though.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 06:03 PM

In real life, I have all the personality skills of a shrub! :p
Although tbh I have been a lot more chatty and friendly recently so maybe I am improving!!

Food shopping is annoying!
I get paid tomorrow so will have to do a largeish shop! Grrrrr!!

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 06:07 PM

Improving.. being crazy.. yeah, probably one of them :P

Takeaway is good! What will you get? I would do that but Tesco is like 5 minutes away if that and I want to buy chocolate too. To drown my sorrows in :P

Sketchy 30-03-2017 06:08 PM

Food shopping is annoying. I really need to do a shop tomorrow. I know I went to Asda yesterday but I didn't buy a lot. I do my shopping in bits.

Sketchy 30-03-2017 06:09 PM

There's an Italian restaurant that does takeaway. I might get pizza or pasta. Their pasta is nice. So is their pizza.

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 06:11 PM

I don't really mind food shopping usually but I can't be bothered today!

Pizza sounds good. I never used to be much of a fan of pizza but I love it now!

Sketchy 30-03-2017 06:13 PM

I love pizza so much. It's a comfort food. I think I'll go and do some housework and then phone for takeaway later. Yum.

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 06:17 PM

Sounds good. I hope you enjoy your takeaway! :)

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 06:18 PM

Well, I could be improving and be crazy at the same time!! :p
Although I have started talking to people at bus stops and supermarkets and stuff so I think I've become 'that' guy that everyone is too polite to tell to f off but are just like really uncomfortable! I am aware of it but I can't stop!! Lol! :p

Ooo pizza!! My favourite!

I was looking at chocolate in asda today but remained strong!!
Although I know a bar of chocolate.or two would be absolutely fine!!
Might get one tomorrow :)

Sketchy 30-03-2017 06:21 PM

It's always good to treat yourself Beckie. I know I shouldn't have takeaway, but I'm considering it a treat.

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 06:23 PM

I would tell you to f off Beckie :P

There's nothing wrong with the odd treat you know! :)

not_so_insig 30-03-2017 06:36 PM

I had pizza in my tesco order on Tuesday but I have yet to eat it. I was going to eat it yesterday but I wasn't hungry.

I went for my walk around the park at the bottom of the road but it started raining so I only went around once (normally I go around twice).

Sketchy 30-03-2017 06:42 PM

It's good you still got out though Dawn. I'm going to go a walk tomorrow. Well, the intentions are there.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 06:57 PM

I'm sure you would Hannah! :p

Treats are good!! :)

I have a ready meal again, one of asdas healthy ones though. Beef lasagne!

not_so_insig 30-03-2017 07:02 PM

Thanks Lorraine.

Does anyone like candles? I do. I have a yankee candle tealight candle going right now. I had a buddybox pot luck box come today and I was so pleased that a candle came in it.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 07:08 PM

Sounds cool Dawn.

I like scented candles. I've run out though! My mum is going to get me a specific one next time she goes to waitrose.

not_so_insig 30-03-2017 07:15 PM

I am still working through the ones I had for Christmas. Then again it took most of January to get through the advent calendar ones.

I like yankee candle ones the best. Though I found out I was allergic to berry trifle.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 07:20 PM

I've never had any of the Yankee candle ones.

The one from waitrose is called 'over the moon' but I'm not sure what the scent is exactly.
It was very nice though! Not too strong.

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 07:36 PM

I love scented candles. I have a vanilla one and another I got for Christmas that I can't remember what it is.

Does anyone have any exciting weekend plans?

not_so_insig 30-03-2017 07:44 PM

I usually go out on a Sunday but I dunno where yet. Usually we decide on the day.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 07:51 PM

I get paid tomorrow so I fancy going on an adventure on the weekend! Not sure where though!

EDIT: I will not be going abroad and probably not going anywhere too far away or unusual!

not_so_insig 30-03-2017 07:56 PM

I get paid twice next week. I find it rather annoying because I wish that I had them on different weeks.

I have my annual blood test next week. Boo! Dreading it because I am scared of needles and I can't remember if it's a fasting one.

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 07:56 PM

Adventures are good. Impulsive trips abroad probably not so much :P

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 07:57 PM

Oh, blood tests aren't much fun! I had a student doc trying to take mine yesterday and she couldn't do it which is silly because I have amazing veins so then I had to go to phlebotomy at the hospital and they got it first time, predictably!

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 08:00 PM

I have blood tests every month so I'm not bothered by them at all now!

Dawn could you call up and check whether it's fasting or not?

That reminds me, I have to get my contraceptive depo injection next week.

not_so_insig 30-03-2017 08:06 PM

I have terrible trouble with getting hold of my replacement nurse who organised the test so I will play it safe and fast. I don't eat breakfast anyway and it's quite early so I should be ok. I will take a sugary drink to drink afterwards.

I fancy some jelly babies but I have none!

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 08:32 PM

That's a good plan.

Ooo I haven't had jelly babies in forever!

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 08:36 PM

Jelly babies are good. I like the orange and pink ones!

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 08:42 PM

Good luck for the blood test Dawn.

That reminds me I was meant to go for a fasting one a few weeks back. Oops.

What is everyone up to tonight??

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 08:44 PM

I'm off to clubbercise in a bit.
I'm nervous that it's not on because zumba isn't on tomorrow. But I'm sure that the instructor said it was on tonight. Oh well, it's only a 10 minute walk away so if it's not on, it's no big deal!

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 08:48 PM

Hope you enjoy! And just think nothing disastrous is going to happen if its not on this week.

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 09:10 PM

Have fun Beckie!

Hi Amy! How are you?

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 09:22 PM

Hey Hannah, I am good this evening. Are you up to anything exciting?

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 09:24 PM

Glad you're good :) I'm not up to anything exciting, just watching TV!

How about you?

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 09:29 PM

Watching anything interesting?

I'm just chatting to friends on le fb.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 10:09 PM

I'm back and all was well!! It was absolutely BOILING though! We had a new routine and that was fun. :)

Glad you're ok amy!

I'm now catching up on eastenders!

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 10:24 PM

Yay Bex, I'm glad it was enjoyable. New routines are always good fun.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 10:34 PM

Yep!! :-D

What are you up to this evening?

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 10:38 PM

Glad you had fun Beckie!

I'm bored of TV. I really need to find something thrilling to watch but I can't! Ooh. Dirty Dancing is on at 10, yay! :D

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 10:38 PM

I am making food and watching a new episode of Chicago fire.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 10:44 PM

Dirty dancing annoys me :p
There's this one scene where he's trying to get into a car and he smashes the window then goes round the other side and just opens the door like wtf?!

What are you making amy?
I'm hungry but I have no snack type stuff in.
I've never seen Chicago fire. It looks good though!

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 10:49 PM

I'm just cooking a jacket spud as per :tongue2:

Not seen Dirty Dancing in ages Hannah, hope you enjoy!

Chicago fire isn't bad tbh, it links in with Chicago PD.

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 11:04 PM


There are so many police shows on at the moment!
I like Brooklyn 99

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 11:27 PM

Sounds yummy Amy! Having anything in it?

Beckie! :O Dirty Dancing is wonderful! I mean, the girl annoys me and tbh I would want to punch her in the face, but it's still an excellent film!

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 11:37 PM

Haha! She is annoying!
I'm not a fan of basically any romance films! Especially dancy singy romance films!! :p

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 11:38 PM

Dancy singy romance films are basically my favourite films!! :P

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 11:40 PM


Just phily.

I'm looking at college courses and jobs. I need to do something with my life. I'm still waiting for my provisional. Woe.

Serendipity. 30-03-2017 11:41 PM


That sounds exciting Amy - as long as you don't push yourself too hard! What kind of jobs and courses are you looking at?

Cacoethes 30-03-2017 11:44 PM

I don't think we can be friends Hannah! :p

That sounds great amy! Colleges usually have a wide range of courses!
I'm waiting for my provisional too. It's taking forever!!

Wonderland. 30-03-2017 11:46 PM

Well job wise I want to do community care but you need a car for all I've seen. College would be an adult h&s care course, or just something fun or of interest, like learning to do massage or hair.

I was my provisional to come throughhhhhh. It's been like a month since I sent it off, ugh for having to declare the mentals!!

When did you send yours off Bex?
