I have rehydration salts now so I’m drinking those.

Glad you’re back, Dawn!

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 03:45 PM

Hi Dawn!

Thats good Eska. Hope they help!

Im trying to start another essay.
Its 3000 words *dies*

not_so_insig 20-12-2017 04:00 PM

Thanks Eska and hi Beckie.

I have been swimming today. Last one of the year and for a few weeks as I don't go when the kids are off school!

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 04:42 PM

Swimming is good!

Ive just been sitting here with my essay in front of me, eating my body weight in satsumas and quality street :p

Sketchy 20-12-2017 05:39 PM

Hi everyone. I’m getting a chippy for dinner, so looking forward to that. Yum!

Cpt_Stunning 20-12-2017 05:40 PM

I got Beef Chilli & Rice

Sketchy 20-12-2017 05:41 PM

I hope you enjoy it.

Cpt_Stunning 20-12-2017 05:43 PM

it's been nice & warm here over the last few days.

Sketchy 20-12-2017 05:44 PM

Yeh, it’s not been as cold. I’m still cold though, but not as bad.

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 05:58 PM

Ooo chippy dinner!
One of the best dinners!

I have stuffed mushrooms, Mediterranean veg and root veg mash.
Not hungry yet though cos I've eaten too many satsumas and chocolate :p

Im determined to get 1000 words done tonight!
Got almost 500 so far

Buttons. 20-12-2017 06:02 PM

Sounds like an impressive amount of words Beckie!

I'm trying not to comfort eat, bit flashbacky and I'm overweight anyway. Did enjoy a crafty burger in town today when me n support worker went into town for last minute shopping so maybe it's better to be fat and happy :P

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 06:05 PM

Im finding it much easier than the sociology essay because its on mental health and I know quite a bit about mental health already!!

Ah you had a cheeky burger then!
I had one on saturday :p
Love a crafty burger!
Tbh there are LOADS more important thing than weight!

Sketchy 20-12-2017 06:39 PM

Sounds like you are doing well with your studies Beckie.

I hope everyone enjoyed or enjoys their dinner.

I had an early dinner. Chips! So yummy.

Tonight I’m wrapping up Christmas presents and will probably open a box of roses. I’m being rather greedy today, but I’ll go back to normal tomorrow.

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 08:23 PM

Finally reached 1000.
I can relax now!
Only 2000 to go....

Sounds like a good evening Lorraine!
I need to pick something up from the post office tomorrow. So I'll do some wrapping then!

Sketchy 20-12-2017 08:28 PM

Well done Beckie. You deserve a rest.

I’ve done my gift wrapping. Now I’m going to relax.

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 08:34 PM


Sounds good.

Sketchy 20-12-2017 08:36 PM

You know me so well! Might watch ‘love actually’ tonight. Not sure. I’ll see what’s on.

What are you up to now?

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 08:38 PM

I watched that for the first time the other day.
It was ok!

Im watching the goldbergs.
Night at the museum 3 is on later so I'm looking forward to That!

Sketchy 20-12-2017 08:41 PM

I hope you enjoy it.

I’ve just opened a box of roses. Seems appropriate after Christmas gift wrapping.

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 08:42 PM

Eating chocolates totally goes hand im hand with gift wrapping!!

Aubergine 20-12-2017 08:44 PM


Cacoethes 20-12-2017 08:45 PM

Hi Aubergine!
How are you?

Sketchy 20-12-2017 08:46 PM

I love roses chocolates. Yum!

Any plans for tomorrow? I need to post cards before it’s too late, buy some bath bombs for my friend and I’ll go for a coffee too.

Sketchy 20-12-2017 08:46 PM

Hello Aubergine! :)

Eska 20-12-2017 08:47 PM


I feel a bit better than I did so hopefully things are going in the right direction.

Well done on writing those words Beckie!

Glad you enjoyed your dinner Lorraine :)

Sketchy 20-12-2017 08:49 PM

Hi Eska. Glad you are feeling a bit better.

Aubergine 20-12-2017 08:54 PM

Hey Lorraine and Eska!

I'm at my mum's to watch the football!

Sketchy 20-12-2017 08:56 PM

Hope you enjoy the football.

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 09:05 PM

I have to go and have the blood test because I couldn't be bothered today!
And pick up a present from the post office.
And do some wrapping.
And hopefully do some more of my assignment.

Glad you are feeling a bit better Eska!

Enjoy the football aubergine!

Aubergine 20-12-2017 09:07 PM

Thanks. My dad is a season ticket holder and is watching it at the ground. Mum has got sky so I have commandeered their tv for the evening! What are you up to?

Sketchy 20-12-2017 09:09 PM

That sounds a busy day Beckie.

I’m having a lazy evening after doing my gift wrapping.

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 09:09 PM

Who's playing?

I wouldn't say I'm a huge football fan but I did used to enjoy going to matches!
I'd like to start going again actually!

Aubergine 20-12-2017 09:23 PM

Bristol City and Manchester United. It's a cup quarter final. I'm not a huge football fan either, but it's such a big team for city to play!

Lazy evening sounds good, Lorraine.

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 09:36 PM

Hope you enjoy it!

I think i might look into going to see my team play soon actually!

Aubergine 20-12-2017 10:11 PM

Bristol City just scored! Against Manchester United! :O

Going to watch your team sounds good!

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 10:14 PM

There was a post on my team's fb page about beating Man U in 2015.
All the comments were just like, yeah, we've become really sh*t now XD

Sketchy 20-12-2017 10:18 PM

I hope you are enjoying the game.

I don’t have a clue about football.

one_step_closer 20-12-2017 10:31 PM

There's a football pitch behind my house where kids teams play. I used to get quite distracted watching them but now I'm so used to it. My neighbour is always moaning about the noise of the ball being kicked and hitting on the fence and stuff but she and her husband have lived here for more than 40 years so they should really be used to it!

Sketchy 20-12-2017 10:35 PM

I live near a stadium. Gets very chaotic during games.

one_step_closer 20-12-2017 10:37 PM

Is there lots of traffic and people passing your place when games are on?

Cacoethes 20-12-2017 10:37 PM

Im off to bed now!
Night night all!

Sketchy 20-12-2017 10:38 PM

Yes. They all pass my street to get to the train station. Police horses everywhere.

Sketchy 20-12-2017 10:38 PM

Good night Beckie. Sleep well.

Aubergine 20-12-2017 11:33 PM

Bristol City won! It was such an exciting game!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 06:14 AM

Glad your team won Aubergine.

I can’t sleep. Very annoying!

Buttons. 21-12-2017 07:12 AM

Hope you managed to get back to sleep Lorraine. I managed a few hours which is better than nothing. Up now though. Dog has checked if I was getting anything food related from the kitchen and gone screw this and gone back to bed :P

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 10:59 AM

Morning guys.
Had such broken sleep!
Not tired though somehow!

Eska 21-12-2017 11:15 AM

Morning Beckie! I’m sorry you didn’t sleep well, hopefully you catch up a bit tonight.

I’m feeling a lot better and my boss has told me he has cover and I should stay home so I’m going to have a nice chilled day I think.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 11:18 AM

Glad you're feeling better!
And yay for day off!

Eska 21-12-2017 11:21 AM

Me too! My housemates are recovering as well so hopefully we’ll all be ok soon.

What are you up to today?
