Sounds good.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 07:07 PM

Yay for board games! Yay for alcohol!

I am home alone :'( Hope you all feel sorry for me! I do have pizza and cider though so it's not all bad!

Sketchy 24-12-2016 07:09 PM

Poor Hannah. *hugs*
Pizza and cider sound good.

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 07:15 PM

Pizza and cider is good!

My mum has said she is monitoring my intake of diet coke because she knows I am 'addicted' to it. Which I am tbh but now that's alcohol and soft drinks that she is 'monitoring'. This is going to be incredibly annoying. Not like I'm 25 years old or anything :eyeroll:
And I keep trying to sneak off to puff on my e-cig but Jasmine is following me everywhere so can't get a moment alone!!
I'm getting stressed already!!

Sketchy 24-12-2016 07:17 PM

Stay calm Beckie. She's just being a mother and looking out for you. My dad keeps making sure I'm eating ok and I'm 35.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 07:17 PM

Thanks Lorraine!

Lol Beckie! Tell your mum that you're all grown up and you can drink as much diet coke as you like :P

Buttons. 24-12-2016 08:49 PM

I can think of worse things to be addicted to than diet coke :P (not that I'm advocating it!) but on a scale... I know it must be hard with the e-cig but it's kinda sweet that Jasmine wants to follow you around :)

I'm watching Michael McIntyre's Christmas special thing which is cheering me up a bit out of my depression/memory shiz :) Can't wait to see the result of his Aled Jones' call to all! :P

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 08:59 PM

Hi Katy! Oh my goodness, my life is so sad that anytime anyone posts I'm like omg yay a person to talk to! :P

*offers hugs* Glad watching Michael McIntyre is helping, I love him!

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 09:08 PM

Thanks guys. My mum has chilled out a bit which is good!
Jasmine is still very hyper but I managed to sneak off to have a puff on my e-cig which has helped!

We're watching Michael Mcintyre as well Katy!!

All the cool kids are!!!

Glad your mum has chillaxed a bit and you managed to get a bit of your e-cig. I find 'going to the bathroom' a good excuse as the water vapour doesn't set off smoke alarms so no one need ever know (though may begin to believe you are having stomach issues :P)

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 09:13 PM

Katy has good suggestions! I have no clue re smoking. I don't because I am a good girl :P

Oh no, I guess I am not a cool kid then :'( I am watching Under the Dome!

Shame on you. Shunned.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 09:21 PM

Oh my god Katy, no! Charlie the unicorn ****ing creeps me out!

Buttons. 24-12-2016 09:22 PM

You brought it upon yourself *shakes head solemnly* :P :D

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 09:23 PM

I'm traumatised D:

Buttons. 24-12-2016 09:25 PM

Screw PTSD, now been replaced by PTUS-Post traumatic unicorn shunning :P

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 09:26 PM

I do keep 'going to the bathroom' :p

Jasmine is getting sleepy I think. She's getting grumpy and playing with her hair!
I've just written that and now she's shouting about bears (we just watched going on a bear hunt)
Children!!
Eastenders now! Step dad isn't keen but mum and little sister have overridden him!

I cant keep up with the ninja posts because there is no wifi and my phone signal is only on H!!! No 3G. No 4G. H!!!!!!

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 09:28 PM

Katy I'm totally gonna tell my team I have that!!

Lol Beckie hopefully Jasmine will go to sleep soon! I haven't watched eastenders in yeeears! Is it still extra depressing at Christmas?

Oh please for my sake do and covertly record their response ! :P

Beckie I loved that bear hunt book as a kid but when working in a school for a while and reading it out three million times I kind of went off it :P Glad Jasmine is enjoying though, even if it's driving the rest of you insane :D

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 09:47 PM

Right I'm going to do that Katy! :D It will srsly make my day! Though they may think I'm crazy or something :P

I was scared of that book because bears. I was a sensitive child! :P

Buttons. 24-12-2016 09:48 PM

Also you mean you haven't all bought her a bear for Christmas? Shocking :P

Buttons. 24-12-2016 09:53 PM

Oh please please do, you would make my year, let alone day :thumbup: ! :D If they're only just edging towards the conclusion of craziness I am slightly afraid about their professional qualifications, especially in light of the book thing (though I can't talk, according to my mum she found me aged about 3 full out sobbing having been set down in front of a Peter Rabbit cartoon, crying on the basis of the fact in said cartoon he had got caught in some netting and was finding it hard to get home-tragic stuff) :P :hehe:

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:00 PM

How rude Katy!!! I am clearly completely sane and normal!! No-one could ever think I was any kind of crazy!

Hahaha. Though I think that is completely understandable really especially at that age! Shows you had lots of empathy :P I couldn't finish watching thumbelina (I think that's the right film I'm thinking of?) because of the bit where the little people get separated because one of them is stuck in an ice cube. I was distraught :P

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 10:06 PM

The bear hunt book was awesome! Can't believe you were scared of it Hannah!! Although I'm scared of Ainsley Harriot so yeah.

That Peter rabbit cartoon sounds sad Katy!
I was quite sad at eastenders because nobody came to Dots leaving party and Dot has been working at the laundrette since forever and she was made to leave :'(

We were discussing crazy cat ladies because of eastenders and my step dad asked me if I had a cat. I said no. He said 'oh well, you're already half the way there'
:plain:

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:09 PM

Poor Beckie. That was a mean thing to say to you.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:11 PM

Beckie that Made me laugh I'm afraid! Sorry :P

Poor Dot! How sad :'(

Hi Lorraine! How's it going?

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:13 PM

I'm ok. Just relaxing at my dad's house.

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:14 PM

How are you doing?

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:15 PM

That sounds nice :)

I'm good but I'm bored and frustrated and do not want to be sitting in on my own. My friend invited me over but I can't drive (and don't have a car obviously!) and a taxi would be too expensive so I'm sad.

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:17 PM

I'm sorry to hear that. Will you be around people tomorrow? I'll be around here, so I can keep you company.

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 10:18 PM

That's ok Hannah! We all had a bit of a laugh. It's a pretty standard joke in my family :eyeroll:

Sorry to here that Hannah :(
Is there no one that could give you a lift?

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:20 PM

My family make similar jokes at my expense.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:22 PM

Tomorrow I will be sitting at work on my own! Thank you, virtual company is good :)

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:23 PM

Sadly not Beckie, everyone is off enjoying Christmas with their families!

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:23 PM

I'll pop by here and annoy you. :)

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 10:34 PM

I'll be here as well! Well, depending on phone signal!

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:37 PM

Yay! Company! <3

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:39 PM

Right, I think I need to make myself and dad a cup of tea. What's everyone else doing?

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:47 PM

Tea is good! I'm still watching under the dome and I am trying out a dating site!

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:53 PM

My friend uses a dating site. She's had a few interesting dates, but I know someone who met their now boyfriend on a dating site. I don't know which site though.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 10:57 PM

I know quite a few people who have met their partner that way! I don't necessarily need a relationship anyway, I don't mind just doing the dating thing for a while :)

Sketchy 24-12-2016 10:58 PM

Good luck with it.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 11:01 PM

Thanks :) I think it might be fun.

Sketchy 24-12-2016 11:04 PM

I think I'll have to log off now, but I'll be back tomorrow.
Good night.

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 11:09 PM

Sleep well lovely :) xx

Cacoethes 24-12-2016 11:24 PM

Good luck with the dating site Hannah!
I'm on one and been on 2 dates now. It seems to be going well! I've also known people who have been in good relationships from dating sites :)

I'll probably log off in a bit too. Taken my meds so I'm tired but want to watch the end of this film. Woman in a van or something. It has Maggie Smith in it.
I immediately exclaimed 'Professor McGonagall!!! And everyone was like....Wat?

Serendipity. 24-12-2016 11:47 PM

Lol. I love Maggie Smith!

I'm glad the dating is going well :) I like stalking your r/v (well, everyone's tbh!) and when you made that typo I was like 'oh, was Beckie's second date today? Guess it went well then!!' :P

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 12:20 AM

That did also cross my mind :P

I love that woman in a van film! Don't know where on earth I've put my copy though, it's disappeared into the general untidiness which are my living room bookshelves :P

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 04:18 AM

Haha I hope you find it Katy! I haven't seen that film.

Why am I still awake????
