not_so_insig 21-12-2017 12:00 PM

It's the last day posting for first class stamps today so if anyone has any cards to post best do it today as it won't arrive for Christmas otherwise.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 12:07 PM

Thanks for the info Dawn!

Im waiting for my blood test.
Its super busy!

Shy_Bambi 21-12-2017 12:32 PM

Good afternoon everyone :) how are you all?

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 12:39 PM

Hi everyone. My house is so cold, think I need to put the heating on. Got some cleaning/tidying to do anyway for my brother coming over on Sunday.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 01:06 PM

Hey guys
I've impulsively decided to go to the cinema to watch pitch perfect 3.
Starts at 1:30

Shy_Bambi 21-12-2017 01:32 PM

I saw on Facebook you said that, hope it's good!!

Eska 21-12-2017 02:18 PM

Hope you're enjoying it Beckie

Shy_Bambi 21-12-2017 03:35 PM

It's really crowded out! My mum dragged me out with her because I haven't been out for a while. Can't wait to get back to my room.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 03:36 PM

Waiting for train home now.
It was a good film

It is very crowded here too rebecca!
Last minute Christmas shopping i expect!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 03:44 PM

Hello everyone.

I’VE FINALLY FINISHED MY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!!!!! Bought the last thing just there. I’m having a well deserved toasted panini and diet irn bru in the coffee shop. I feel so relieved.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 04:56 PM

Yay well done!!

Im home now

Sketchy 21-12-2017 04:57 PM


What you going to do now you are home?

I’m about to go to the shop, then home.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 04:59 PM

Not sure.
Just watch some TV and I might do some wrapping.
Even though I'm terrible at it! XD

Sketchy 21-12-2017 05:02 PM

It just gets ripped open, so don’t worry.

I better go to the shop now.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 05:25 PM

That is true!

See you later Lorraine!

Buttons. 21-12-2017 05:26 PM

I am terrible I just don't even bother trying to wrap my gifts anymore. When Zed and I gave my mum her stocking she could mostly tell who gave her what as Zed's were all nicely wrapped and mine not so much :P

Buttons. 21-12-2017 05:26 PM

Hope the shop goes okay Lorraine :) I'm going to brave Tesco for last minute provisions tomorrow :P

Sketchy 21-12-2017 05:41 PM

Thanks Buttons.

I hope your shopping goes well tomorrow.

I’m home now. Shopping all done!

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 05:55 PM

Sounds just like my wrapping Buttons!

Good that you've got your shopping done Lorraine!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 06:01 PM

Thanks Beckie.

I feel like a huge weight has been lifted now that I’m done Christmas shopping.

I think I’ll relax and read my sewing books my sister got me for my birthday and eat some of the roses chocolates I have left over from yesterday tonight.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 06:03 PM

Sounds like a good way to spend an evening!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 06:08 PM

I hope your wrapping goes well. I listened to music while I did mine which helped. I just need to wrap what I bought today for my friend. I’ll do that tomorrow. Seeing her on Saturday for a Christmas lunch.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 06:16 PM

Im going to do the wrapping tomorrow I think.
Im really tired!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 06:19 PM

Good plan. Maybe have a relaxing evening then?

I can’t believe Christmas is Monday already! Normally I dread it and to be honest I do find it hard, especially without mum, but this year I’m slightly less stressed than normal. Still can’t wait until it’s over though. I sound like Scrooge!

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 06:25 PM

Im glad youre feeling less stressed.
It must be so difficult.

I'm looking forward to Christmas day because of Jasmine. Will be nice to get it all over with though!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 06:30 PM

Christmas is really exciting at her age. She must be so excited now. Will she be leaving a carrot for Rudolph and a mincemeat pie for Santa?

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 06:35 PM

She is very excited!
And its always good to have the 'you have to be good for santa' thing :p
Yep she'll be leaving a carrot for rudolph and mince pie!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 06:38 PM

Haha, that’s one way to ensure she behaves.
Will your whole family be there? You have a big family don’t you?

I’ll be going to my dad’s house with my sister and uncle.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 06:44 PM

We're all going to my nanny's as the family house is still not quite built!
It'll be a squeeze as my nanny only has a 3 bed house and theres me plus 3 siblings (i don't think one of my brothers is coming) and mum and step dad and Jasmine.
Should be fun though!

That sounds good :)

Sketchy 21-12-2017 06:45 PM

Sounds like it will be fun.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 06:48 PM

Yep hopefully!

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 06:53 PM

I don't know if I could cope with a big family gathering! But I do get that it must be quite nice at times to have a strong family network. Hope you both (and everyone else) have some good times over the holidays. My brother is coming to mine on Sunday and leaving on Tuesday I think. He usually comes on the train but his partner is maybe going to bring him in his car this time and I'm dreading having to make small talk as I've only met him briefly before!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 06:55 PM

I hope you and your brother have a good time. You’ll soon get to know his partner in no time.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 06:59 PM

Every Christmas has to be a big family thing because I'm one of 5 kids plus we have Jasmine and my mum and step dad! There's no avoiding it! Lol!

I hope you have a good time Lindsay :)

Sketchy 21-12-2017 07:05 PM

What everyone getting for Christmas dinner?

My dad is cooking turkey, but for me a quorn fillet and we have roast potatoes, garlic mushrooms and sprouts with gravy. I’ll get a separate vegetarian gravy from them.

Sketchy 21-12-2017 07:05 PM

I always talk about food!

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 07:08 PM

Just the usual dinner I think!

When I was veggie I always liked a nut roast at Christmas!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 07:08 PM

Yum. I love a nut roast.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 07:15 PM

They are tasty!!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 07:17 PM

I haven’t had nut roast in ages. Think I’ll have to rectify that!

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 07:17 PM

I havent either!
Might have to purchase one soon

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 07:21 PM

Oh yes, food talk, my favourite! I usually have turkey etc and my brother has quorn roast but he keeps saying he's going to look into having something different this year. I spent ages making him a nut roast from scratch one year and he didn't like it.

Sketchy 21-12-2017 07:22 PM

That’s a shame, but quorn roast is tasty. I’ve had that at Christmas a few times. Lovely with some gravy.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 07:24 PM

Quorn roast sounds good!

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 07:30 PM

I think I may eat anything if it's covered in gravy.

Sketchy 21-12-2017 07:31 PM

Gravy is good.

I’m eating roses chocolates now. Tasty and festive.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 07:33 PM

Gravy is awesome

I've just had a terrys chocolate orange!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 07:35 PM

Ooh yum. My sister always puts a chocolate orange in with my Christmas present. Yummy!

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 07:45 PM

They are tasty!
And I like bashing it on the table to break it up :p
