I have had a call from a local learning disabilities centre and they are asking for someone called sheila. I keep on explaining that I am not Sheila and to remove my number from their records. They are taking no notice of me. So I feel as though I have no choice but to block the number as I have had another phone call from them.

Oh and the amazon person has arrived. He was young about 20 and rather cute.

I hope that the washing machine repair manages to get your washing machine fixed Dawn.

That sounds frustrating, could you find an email address for the centre and send them a message that the number they have for Sheila is not the correct number and to stop calling your number?

How is everyone today?

Eska 12-07-2017 02:23 PM

I am tiiiiiiiired. Trying to get some reading done but it's going slowly. Luckily the chapters are pretty short so I can at least break it down. How are you?

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 02:34 PM

I've just woken up (didn't sleep until around 8am) I have a short college lesson later which I'm stressing about. Every time I try to go to a course I end up stressing so much that I have a seizure. I really don't want to fit today :(

not_so_insig 12-07-2017 03:20 PM

I have washing going in my machine.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 03:34 PM

Hey guys.
I woke up for carer then went back to bed so just woken up properly!

Good luck at the college session Rebecca.
You can always leave if you feel uncomfortable

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 04:32 PM

Hey Beckie! That's true, but I've paid for the course so I'll be wasting money if I walk out.

Do you have anything planned for the day? Aside from asda :P

Sketchy 12-07-2017 04:41 PM

Hey everyone.
How are we all?

I'm in the coffee shop, but not feeling too comfortable to sketch. Having irn bru and a goats cheese bagel. Yum.

tiptoes 12-07-2017 04:47 PM

I hope the course goes ok Rebecca.

Sounds yum Lorraine! :)

I'm alright thanks, how are you doing?

not_so_insig 12-07-2017 04:48 PM

My washing machine is making strange noises. They only last for 30 seconds though. I am hoping that it's because it's new and not permanent.

Sketchy 12-07-2017 04:50 PM

I'm alright thanks. Feeling creative and might do some painting later this evening.

I hope your washing machine is ok Dawn.

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 05:00 PM

That's sucks dawn. I hope you don't have to call them out again

That sounds like a good plan Lorraine! You're an awesome artist!

not_so_insig 12-07-2017 05:01 PM

I hope so too Lorraine. It seems to be only happening on the spin cycle and rinse cycle though. It's currently washing the clothes and it is just making normal noises.

Sketchy 12-07-2017 05:01 PM

Aww thank you Rebecca lovely.

not_so_insig 12-07-2017 05:08 PM

I am watching Keeping Up Appearances and Hyacinth has just said "completely conducive to contemplating cosy charasmatic country cottages".

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 05:23 PM

Omg Dawn is that what your signature says?! I always thought it said cabbages not cottages I'm so sorry xD

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 05:30 PM

I always thought it said cabbages too!!

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 05:35 PM

Oh good I'm glad I'm not the only one xD

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 05:39 PM

I bought some pesto and spaghetti to satisfy my craving!!
Cant wait for dinner time!

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 05:42 PM

That sounds yum!!
I just ate vegetable pizza and am now on my way to that college course. Feeling sick with nerves.

Sketchy 12-07-2017 05:55 PM

I hope it goes well Rebecca. Can you maybe reward yourself whenever you go?

I'm home now and having a rest before I paint. Just now it's too warm to do anything.

Sketchy 12-07-2017 05:56 PM

Spaghetti and pesto sounds yum.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 05:57 PM

Pizza is yummy!

I hope the course goes ok Rebecca.

It is very warm today!

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 05:58 PM

I think when I get home I'll just go straight to sleep, stress makes me sleepy.

Sketchy 12-07-2017 05:58 PM

A nap is always good.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 06:02 PM

I agree!

Yes it does.

My washing machine cycle has finished and it sounded near normal so fingers crossed that the noise before was because it's new. I have another load going atm.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 06:26 PM

Glad the washing machine seems ok!!

Ive got a bit of a headache :(

chinahorse 12-07-2017 06:50 PM

Glad it seems ok dawn.

Oh no beckie that sucks. Drink some water and take some paracetamol?

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 06:51 PM

Ive taken some neurofen so hoping that does the trick!

How are you Lillie?

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 06:53 PM

Maybe take some paracetamol like Beckie suggested and have a nap?

I'm standing in the hall of the college having a major panic attack. I'm so convinced I'm going to be the ugliest/fattest/dumbest person in the class and everyone will hate me xD

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 06:58 PM

I know its easier said than done but try to calm down.
I am very sure that none of those things are true!
Honestly i know how anxiety provoking it can be, when i started college i was terrified but after starting it got loads better and i told the teacher about my issues too

chinahorse 12-07-2017 07:09 PM

Make sure you hydrate as well :)

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 07:37 PM

How are you lillie?

I've just had my pesto spaghetti. It was yummy!

chinahorse 12-07-2017 07:52 PM

Oooo tasty!

I'm ok enough thank you. Another interesting meal though.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 07:57 PM

Good interesting or bad interesting? :/

chinahorse 12-07-2017 07:59 PM

Erm neutral? Like undercooked sweet potato fries, burnt falafel, super crispy flat bread with spinach avocado and Cheryl tomatoes.

Sketchy 12-07-2017 08:05 PM

That doesn't sound like it was yummy Lillie. That's a shame.

I just did some painting. Doing washings now. I should be doing other housework but I can't be bothered.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 08:07 PM

It sounds like it would be delicious if cooked properly!

Glad you managed to get some painting done Lorraine!8

Sketchy 12-07-2017 08:10 PM

Yes, I'm glad I got some done.

What's everyone up to?

chinahorse 12-07-2017 08:19 PM

It's better than the last two days food.

Yay for doing some painting lorraine.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 09:00 PM

Im watching x men.
Gonna have a shower in a minute!
Carer has just been and we had a nice chat!

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 09:18 PM

I just got out of college. It was okay, only 11 people in the class so it wasn't crowded. My mum has met me after, she bought me some iron bru as a treat, never had it before. It's really nice!! Annoying because I can't place the taste...kinda fruity? It's lovely. Going to thank Lorraine for suggesting it, it's because of you I wanted to try it!! :D

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 09:24 PM

Im glad it was ok. And well done for getting through it!
Irn bru is nice!

not_so_insig 12-07-2017 09:41 PM

I wonder if tesco does irn bru. I am so going to add it to my order if they do.

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 09:45 PM

Thank you Beckie :D

Yeah add it Dawn! I'm definitley getting it again in the next shop.

I think I'll have a nap when I get home. Hope everyone here is doing okay!

Sketchy 12-07-2017 09:48 PM

Well done on getting through college Rebecca. I'm glad you liked the irn bru. I've had one today too. It's really popular up here. I think it sells more than Coke does here.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 09:55 PM

I've always thought of irn bru as a scottish thing.
I think I've seen it in the supermarkets though!!

Sketchy 12-07-2017 09:56 PM

It is a Scottish drink. You can easily get it anywhere here, just like you would Coke. I think I'll get some more tomorrow. Yum.

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 09:57 PM

It says it's Scottish on the bottle xD
