That must be frustrating Beckie. Do you have something planned for tomorrow to keep you occupied?

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 08:07 PM

Nothing planned. There's not a lot you can do without money!
I might just walk and walk and see where I end up!

Sketchy 21-05-2017 08:10 PM

Walking is good. You could take some photos too.

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 08:12 PM

That's a good idea :)

Sketchy 21-05-2017 08:17 PM

I like taking photos when I'm out and about. I bet you would take some interesting ones. I need to start using my old slr camera. It's a good camera my dad got when he was 21ish (a long time ago) and it takes excellent photos. It's also nice to use film and get them developed.

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 08:29 PM

There is something really nice about getting photos developed!

I wish I lived somewhere more interesting!

Sketchy 21-05-2017 08:33 PM

That's true. It's always exciting to see how they will turn out.

Maybe on your walks you will see something worth photographing. I get fed up with being in the same area. I'll need to go further afield.

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 08:38 PM

Maybe!
I was considering maybe travelling to Cambridge. It's not far from me at all and it's a nice city to walk round.

Sketchy 21-05-2017 08:42 PM

That's a good idea. I'd imagine there is much to see there. Lots to photograph. I've never been there. I've actually been to few places in England. Mainly Carlisle and the Lake District.

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 08:44 PM

Yes there's quite a lot to see. It's a very historical place with lots of fancy buildings!

I haven't been to either of those places. I'd love to go to the lake district

Sketchy 21-05-2017 08:46 PM

I've been to Keswick at the Lake District twice. I went last year. A beautiful place. I've always had fun there and enjoyed the boat trips and feeding the ducks on the lake.

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 08:52 PM

Sounds lovely!
I'll have to make the effort to go one day.
I can't wait until I can drive! I'll be able to move about more freely!

chinahorse 21-05-2017 08:54 PM

Driving is the ultimate freedom!

Is it too early to go to bed yet?

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 08:56 PM

Indeed! I should hopefully getting my provisional delivered sometime this week!

I wouldn't say it was too early.
I've just taken my meds so it won't be long til I'm in bed!

Buttons. 21-05-2017 08:59 PM

I wouldn't say it's too early either.

Exciting stuff about the provisional Beckie!

Sketchy 21-05-2017 09:01 PM

I'm wanting to go to sleep too, but I'm doing washings.

I'd love to be able to drive, but my anxiety would get in the way. It would be a nice freedom.

Sketchy 21-05-2017 09:02 PM

Hi Katy . Your new avatar and signature threw me off guard there. Didn't register that it was you at first. I should change mine and add a signature.

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 09:03 PM

It is exciting! I can't wait!

Loving the new sig etc. Katy!!
Night at the museum ftw!

chinahorse 21-05-2017 09:04 PM

Hi Katy :)

Oh exciting stuff beckis.


Right Im off to sleep. Night folks.

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 09:06 PM

Night night Lillie!

Sketchy 21-05-2017 09:06 PM

Good night Lillie. Sleep well.

Buttons. 21-05-2017 09:09 PM

Ha ha sorry Lorraine!

Thanks Beckie. Night at the museum just never gets old!!

Hi Lillie. Goodnight Lillie :P

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 09:16 PM

It threw me off a bit too! Lol!

Buttons. 21-05-2017 09:18 PM

Ha ha I'm glad to be of service in confusing people :P

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 09:20 PM

Haha! :p

I'm going to bed after this episode.
I've decided I'm going to Cambridge tomorrow. Love a good random trip!

Sketchy 21-05-2017 09:22 PM

I'm jealous of your Cambridge trip. Sounds much more exciting than my Asda trip. I hope you have fun.

Cacoethes 21-05-2017 09:24 PM

It's a lot more exciting than my usual trip to asda!
Although I will still be going to asda when I get back though :p

Bedtime now!
See you all tomorrow! Night Night!

Sketchy 21-05-2017 09:25 PM

Good night Beckie. Sleep well.

Buttons. 22-05-2017 09:11 AM

Enjoy Cambridge Beckie :)

Morning all!

Cacoethes 22-05-2017 09:35 AM

Morning guys!

My provisional licence came today!! Yay!! :hop:

chinahorse 22-05-2017 10:34 AM

Woop woop!!! Now to book some lessons :D

Cacoethes 22-05-2017 10:39 AM

Yep!! I'm so excited!

How are you Lillie?

not_so_insig 22-05-2017 11:13 AM

Hi there!

I have received 2 signed photos from celebrities today. At least I think that it's what they are because I have 2 envelopes with my handwriting on. Wonder who it can be?

not_so_insig 22-05-2017 11:26 AM

It was from 2 celebrities. Jason Durr (David in Casualty) & Terence Hardiman. Terence Hardiman was most famous for playing The Demon Headmaster though he was briefly in one episode of Keeping Up Appearances.

chinahorse 22-05-2017 11:57 AM

:)
I'm not good beckie but hey ho.

Yay for more photos dawn do you have a folder for them all?

Shy_Bambi 22-05-2017 11:58 AM

Morning everyone!! Congrats on your licence Beckie!!!!
Really envious of your signed pictures Dawn! I need to write off to David at some point. I used to watch the Demon headmaster all the time as a kid!! The good old days!!

not_so_insig 22-05-2017 12:00 PM

No I have them in my happy box Lillie.

not_so_insig 22-05-2017 12:05 PM

I used to watch The Demon Headmaster as a kiddie. Terence Hardiman wrote a brief note of which he said that The Demon Headmaster is available in bbc store. There's a dvd of Series 1 which is quite rare and expensive but I have it.

Shy_Bambi 22-05-2017 12:27 PM

I watch episodes of the Demon headmaster on YouTube for free so I won't buy the dvds :p

not_so_insig 22-05-2017 12:58 PM

I have managed to hack my dvd player. Yay!

Cacoethes 22-05-2017 01:06 PM

Just stopped off for some lunch in the market square.
It's been a nice day so far!

chinahorse 22-05-2017 02:52 PM

Glad you're having a nice day beckie. The weather is certainly lovely for it!

Cacoethes 22-05-2017 05:10 PM

Finally back home!
I'm exhausted!!
It's been a lovely day though.

What's everyone up to?

chinahorse 22-05-2017 05:12 PM

What did you get up to there? You can rest now, and it's always better when you've been busy.

I'm crocheting. Wasting time till I have to meet with someone. Cba though.

Cacoethes 22-05-2017 05:21 PM

I walked a lot. Went to a museum. Saw lots of fancy buildings and churches. Ended the day at the botanical gardens which was lovely.
I feel good after being out for the day. Not so wound up!

Hope it goes ok. I bet you're getting good at crocheting now!

Sketchy 22-05-2017 05:59 PM

Sounds like you had a lovely day Beckie. Did you take any photos?

Cacoethes 22-05-2017 06:13 PM

I took a few at the botanic gardens. It was really pretty!

How's your day been?

Sketchy 22-05-2017 06:17 PM

I love botanic gardens. We have one in Glasgow, and it's one of my favourite places.

I went to Asda with my sister then we dropped off our shopping and went for a coffee. I'm now home and having a lazy evening because I'll be out the next few days.

Cacoethes 22-05-2017 06:20 PM

They are lovely places!

That's good. I always say this but it must be so nice to have someone to pop out with!
Lazy evening is well deserved!

Sketchy 22-05-2017 06:23 PM

It is. I realise how lucky I am. She's got nearly two weeks off work just now so I'll be seeing more of her.

What are you up to this evening?
