You should give it a go!

I wouldn't know where to start with it all xD
Plus I've recently only just got my laptop back from the tech guys at Currys because I got a bad virus from something and I'm worried I might get another one D:

I hope your headache goes soon, by the way!!

I've been super lazy so far today. Still not talking to my mum since yesterday so I've spent my day so far watching DVDs.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 05:01 PM

Tbh i can't even remember how i downloaded the program i use to play the videos!
And there is a risk of viruses when downloading stuff anyway.
I think i just got lucky!!

Youre still not speaking?
That must be a bit awkward!

Sketchy 04-08-2017 05:06 PM

I hope you and your mum sort things out.

Shy_Bambi 04-08-2017 05:21 PM

Yeah she's been avoiding me so far today. We live in the same house but haven't seen each other yet at all. Not going to lie, I feel even more lonely than I usually do But it's okay. I'll just watch DVDs to keep me busy. But if she needs me she knows where I am.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 05:22 PM

Hopefully you'll make up soon.

Sketchy 04-08-2017 05:27 PM

Why don't you make the first move. Make her a cup of tea?

Sketchy 04-08-2017 05:42 PM

I've decided I can't go out today. Luckily I have enough medication and can pick it up tomorrow.

Shy_Bambi 04-08-2017 05:52 PM

Making tea for each other isn't really a thing, or I would have done it. Besides, we stay in our rooms and I never go in her room so I wouldn't know if she wants tea or not. I could message her on WhatsApp I guess. Maybe later.
I hope you manage to get out tomorrow Lorraine.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 05:56 PM

If you just rest today then hopefully you'll have more energy tomorrow Lorraine

Ive totally forgotten how to live with other people so im not sure what id do in that situation!
Whatsapp sounds like a good plan though

Sketchy 04-08-2017 06:54 PM

I'm going to do that Beckie. Hopefully tomorrow will be different.

What everyone having for dinner? I'm going to have spicy pasta.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 06:57 PM

I think I'll have pasta and pesto.
Its one of my favourite meals and requires basically no effort :p

Sketchy 04-08-2017 07:02 PM

That sounds good. I love pasta. So easy to make.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 07:03 PM

I want to make a tuna pasta bake at some point.
There's a slimming world recipe for it and it is really nice!

Sketchy 04-08-2017 07:06 PM

Sounds like a good plan. My sister makes amazing pasta bake with mushrooms through it. So good!

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 07:10 PM

That sounds nice. I love mushrooms!

Shy_Bambi 04-08-2017 07:11 PM

I don't think it'd ever had a pasta bake, I wouldn't have a clue how to make one but they sound REALLY yummy!!

I just had a sandwich with dairylee so I don't think I'll have a dinner today, I'm too full!

Sketchy 04-08-2017 07:11 PM

I love mushrooms too. Especially on pizza!! But sadly I'm avoiding pizza for a while since I've gone a bit crazy over it.

Sketchy 04-08-2017 07:13 PM

Maybe you can have a snack later Rebecca.

Pasta bake is easy. You can get the sauces in supermarkets and the instructions are easy to follow.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 07:18 PM

Mushrooms are great on pizza!

As Lorraine said, pasta bake is really easy to make!
Definitely worth a try.

Sketchy 04-08-2017 07:22 PM

My friend is terrified of mushrooms.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 07:26 PM


I have a friend who is scared of cheese. And one who is scared of baked beans!

Sketchy 04-08-2017 07:29 PM

It's amazing what phobias there are. I worked with a woman who was scared of bananas.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 07:37 PM

So strange!

I dont think i have any phobias luckily!

Sketchy 04-08-2017 07:42 PM

I'm scared of dogs, but I've been attacked by them, so I suppose that's not surprising.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 07:44 PM

Thats fair enough.
If i was attacked by a dog I'd probably be really scared of them too

Shy_Bambi 04-08-2017 07:45 PM

Scared of bananas? That's one I've never heard of before!
I'm terrified of spiders and babies. Actually kids in general.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 07:52 PM

Im scared of spiders but wouldn't say i have a phobia.

Im also scared of Ainsley harriot but again, not a phobia!

Sketchy 04-08-2017 08:08 PM

Poor Ainsley. What did he do?

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 08:15 PM

Basically, a while ago whenever I'd get up at night to go to the toilet, I had such a strong belief that Ainsley harriot was there, standing on the stairs, looking through the banisters and the belief was so strong that I could almost physically see him standing there and it freaks me out.
Also, i found a pack of ainsley harriot cous cous in my cupboard that i did not buy!
So yeah. Thats why I am scared of Ainsley harriot.

Sketchy 04-08-2017 08:45 PM

Sorry, that does sound scary.

Cacoethes 04-08-2017 08:56 PM

Its ok. It was a while ago and I can laugh about it now!!

Buttons. 05-08-2017 09:52 AM

Bless you Beckie!

Rebecca I can identify with the spider one, and I'm not overly fond of children either :P

I'm scared of heights and small spaces.

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 11:32 AM

Morning guys

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 11:39 AM

Good morning Beckie! How are you today?

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 12:06 PM

Im ok. Very tired!
Think carer is going to help with lawn this morning.
And then I'll probably go for a nap.

How are you Rebecca?

Sketchy 05-08-2017 12:25 PM

Good morning.

How is everyone?

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 12:49 PM

Morning Lorraine. How are you?

Carer has done the mowing. Just in time because it started chucking it down just as she'd finished!
Shes going to tidy it up with the strimmer later.
I really appreciate her! Shame she's leaving soon :(

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 12:51 PM

I'm okay. I'm about to start watching DVDs again. I'm watching each of them once then I'm going to sell them because they're taking up too much room. On the plus side it helps to pass the time quicker, since there is absolutely nothing on tv at all today! Boo for no casualty!

Good morning Lorraine!

Sketchy 05-08-2017 12:52 PM

I'm ok thanks. Just going to laze for a few hours and then go out for meds and coffee since I didn't yesterday.

She sounds like a great carer. It's a shame she's leaving.

Sketchy 05-08-2017 12:52 PM

That's not fair that casualty isn't on. I'll need to find something else to watch.

not_so_insig 05-08-2017 01:03 PM

I am watching a dvd later with my mum instead of casualty. I agree that there's f*** all on the telly.

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 01:07 PM

I don't know why they make weekends so boring. The kids are off from school and lots of people aren't at work, so you'd think they'd put something on tv for them. Something instead of athletics and cooking shows!

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 01:07 PM

Looks like its DVD days for all today!
There really is nothing on tv.
And im gutted there's no casualty :(

All the good carers end up leaving.
The companies treat them really badly.

Thats true rebecca!!
And the films they do show tend to be shown every weekend!

Sketchy 05-08-2017 01:07 PM

Dvds sound a good plan. I might do the same.

not_so_insig 05-08-2017 01:12 PM

Or repeats of game shows or property programmes. We need new shows godamnit!

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 01:15 PM

I'm just watching police interceptors
Ive probably seen all of them now!!
Its always on

not_so_insig 05-08-2017 01:21 PM

I don't think that I have seen that programme Beckie.

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 01:24 PM

I quite like it!
There are loads of similar shows about too like traffic cops. I like traffic cops because it's filmed in my county!

Sketchy 05-08-2017 01:34 PM

I'm really excited. I'm going back to life drawing on Monday. I haven't been in ages. It's a drop in untutored life drawing, so has artists of all stages. It means I can update my blog too.
