Ah I'm glad you're so happy with it Katy!

Cacoethes 08-09-2017 07:06 PM

I'll check it out Katy!

How funny that they showed it in gaelic!!
Is it still spoken a bit then?

Sketchy 08-09-2017 07:09 PM

Not in Glasgow, but in some parts of Scotland, like up north it is.

Sketchy 08-09-2017 07:10 PM

It looks good Katy.

Sketchy 08-09-2017 07:11 PM

On the ferry to Arran the announcements were also said in Gaelic.

Cacoethes 08-09-2017 07:12 PM

Ah ok!
That's interesting!
I guess welsh is still spoken a bit too.

I like it katy!!

Sketchy 08-09-2017 07:12 PM

And some of the train stations in Glasgow have Gaelic signs under the destination signs at the station.

Eska 08-09-2017 07:18 PM

Yeah I know a bunch of people who speak Welsh, and all the train announcements and signs and stuff are in both languages. My university had to provide materials in both languages too.

Cacoethes 08-09-2017 07:18 PM

I need to visit Scotland again
Been a few times when I was a kid because we have Scottish family.
One of my relatives is a professional bagpipe player and plays in Germany a lot.
He's like your stereotypical bagpipe player really!

On my student finance application, it asked if I wanted stuff in welsh. And i think on my driving test booking too!

Sketchy 08-09-2017 07:26 PM

Definitely come to Scotland. So much to see.

That's interesting about the Welsh. I would love to see Wales.

Eska 08-09-2017 07:28 PM

<3 Wales

Cacoethes 08-09-2017 07:28 PM

Wales is beautiful!
Although pretty much everywhere is impossible to pronounce :p

Cpt_Stunning 08-09-2017 08:14 PM

I've been to Wales & Scotland, but only to Cardiff (Wales), Edinburgh & Glasgow (Scotland) not the countryside of either.

Sketchy 08-09-2017 08:19 PM

Hi cpt stunning. I haven't been to Edinburgh in ages. I should go again.

Buttons. 08-09-2017 08:23 PM

I've only ever been to Edinburgh once as a child so was bit too young to appreciate it, although I do remember liking haggis.

Re languages my dad used to teach at a university in Wales and they had to have everything in both languages as well.

Thanks all :)

Sketchy 08-09-2017 08:25 PM

I like vegetarian haggis. Haven't had it in ages.

not_so_insig 08-09-2017 09:42 PM

Hello all.

Eska 08-09-2017 09:46 PM

Hi, how's your evening?

not_so_insig 08-09-2017 09:51 PM

I am a bit better than before. I am having a quiet night.

Sketchy 08-09-2017 10:01 PM

I'm already curled up in bed. Deciding whether to read or watch something on Netflix.

not_so_insig 08-09-2017 10:23 PM

I would have netflix but I don't have unlimited data so I would be scared of going over my allowance. Plus I have plenty of dvds.

Dwi'n siarad cymraeg!

Sketchy 08-09-2017 10:27 PM

I'm lucky to have Netflix. I use it a lot.

Eska 08-09-2017 10:28 PM

Did you go to a Welsh-speaking school, Dawn, or did you learn it at home?

Buttons. 08-09-2017 10:37 PM

I'm very impressed Dawn, it seems such a hard language to learn!

Just watched the film Kubo, wasn't expecting it to be my thing but I actually thought it was pretty good. Anyone else seen it/have an opinion? Made me deserately want to learn origami but I have tried and epically failed at that before ;P

not_so_insig 08-09-2017 10:38 PM

My dad talked to me in Welsh whilst I was at home from when I was little but I went to a bilingual school in a Welsh speaking area. My first language is English though. I did second language Welsh gcse in the hardest tier possible and got a B. I could have done it a level but years of bullying meant that I didn't have enough confidence to do so. I have found learning foreign languages easy as I have qualifications in french and Spanish. I can listen to something in a foreign language a few times and learn the correct pronunciation.

Buttons. 08-09-2017 11:19 PM

That's a really impressive skill to have Dawn, apart from some sign language I'm not very good at foreign languages. It's a shame bullying put you off doing the A level though-is there no way you could do it now?

[Luna] 09-09-2017 10:22 AM

Morning guys <3

Buttons. 09-09-2017 12:00 PM

Morning all :) How are you Luna?

Eska 09-09-2017 12:26 PM

Morning Katy and Luna

[Luna] 09-09-2017 12:47 PM

Hey guys, how are you? What are you guys up to today?

Eska 09-09-2017 01:06 PM

I'm ok. Not up to all that much! How about you?

[Luna] 09-09-2017 01:08 PM

Just finishing watching something on Netflix then need to go out to the shops. Have you got much planned for today?

not_so_insig 09-09-2017 01:45 PM

It's raining here rather heavily.

Afternoon all. *tips hat *

Sketchy 09-09-2017 03:02 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Buttons. 09-09-2017 03:08 PM

Afternoon all. I just went out for lunch with my support worker and had an absolutely amazing lasagne so I'm happy :P

Sketchy 09-09-2017 03:10 PM

Sounds like you had a yummy lunch.

Buttons. 09-09-2017 03:11 PM

Really did. Also met new support worker, was bit nervous so didn't say much, but she seems okay, and the dog likes her, which ceals the deal for me :P

Eska 09-09-2017 03:15 PM

Aw I'm glad Lady liked her! And that you had such a good lunch.

Sketchy 09-09-2017 03:16 PM

I'm glad it went well with your support worker, and it's good the dog liked her.

You up to much now?

I'm being super lazy. Very tired. Again. I'm going out later though for coffee. If I go to the coffee shop after 5 pm it's usually quiet. It's opened until 9pm so I have plenty of time. I need to go to the shop again too.

Eska 09-09-2017 03:20 PM

I'm having a very lazy day too, Lorraine. Coffee shop sounds good though.

Sketchy 09-09-2017 03:22 PM

Sometimes lazy days are needed. Although I have too many of them.

Buttons. 09-09-2017 04:10 PM

I'm being lazy now as well. Have just texted friend/neighbour who has the staffie that plays with mine if she wants to bring her over for a bit so the dogs can play and run off some energy in back garden, but it'll depend if she's busy/working. Either way dog is currently licking my sofa very happily so she's not bothered 0.o In mean time TV, pop and comfy blanket for me :)

Sketchy 09-09-2017 04:49 PM

Sounds good. That's cute that your dog has a friend.

Buttons. 09-09-2017 06:28 PM

Yeah, they're both similar age and breed so equally hyper and they absolutely love playing with each other. The neighbour/friend is bringing her dog over tomorrow :)

Buttons. 09-09-2017 06:29 PM

Best to remove all breakables though ;P

Eska 09-09-2017 06:31 PM

Sounds like it will be a lot of fun :)

Buttons. 09-09-2017 06:53 PM


Sketchy 09-09-2017 07:43 PM

Sounds like fun Katy.

I didn't make it to the coffee shop. I'll go tomorrow. I did make it out to the shop and now have houmous and crackers to eat. Too warm and tired to cook a proper dinner.

Sketchy 09-09-2017 08:40 PM

It's quiet here today. Hope everyone is well.
