Sorry you are having a bad day Lillie.

Beckie, I'm glad you guys are having fun.

chinahorse 29-07-2017 06:10 PM

Sounds great beckie :)

Sketchy 29-07-2017 06:16 PM

What kind of takeaway?

chinahorse 29-07-2017 09:59 PM

It's been quiet today! How is everyonethis evening?

Sketchy 29-07-2017 10:00 PM

Hey Lillie.

I'm having a lazy evening. Just watched casualty. Was a good episode.

What you been up to?

chinahorse 29-07-2017 10:06 PM

Ah yeas I've seem the hype about the episode on fb. Glad it lived up to expectations.

I've just had dinner (beanssssss) after being asleep since later afternoon. Darn chronic illness.

Sketchy 29-07-2017 10:07 PM

I hope the sleep did you good. You feeling any better?

chinahorse 29-07-2017 10:09 PM

I'm ok as long as I don't try to do anything. The trip to the kitchen was done in stages. How I will travel back tomorrow is beyond me.

Sketchy 29-07-2017 10:17 PM

That must be really difficult. I hope your journey back goes ok. Do you have to be up early? Might be best to get some more sleep for it.

chinahorse 29-07-2017 10:20 PM

I don't have to be at the station until 1 thankfully.

Have you got much on tomorrow?

Sketchy 29-07-2017 10:23 PM

That's good. Hopefully you'll be feeling a bit better by then.

I've nothing planned for tomorrow. I might do a little housework. I need to go to the shop, so I'll have to actually leave the flat. I hope to write, draw or paint. I want to do something creative, but I'm struggling with motivation.

chinahorse 29-07-2017 10:25 PM


Maybe see if you can find some inspiration on your way to the shop? I hope you can find the motivation.

Sketchy 29-07-2017 10:29 PM


I'm off to sleep now. I'm really tired today. Goodnight Lillie.

Shy_Bambi 30-07-2017 12:03 PM

Good afternoon all :)

Eska 30-07-2017 01:26 PM

Afternoon Rebecca! How are you?

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 01:54 PM

Hey guys!

Im on my way home.
I got really anxious because its super busy but the train lady is being sooo nice so its ok!
But my tablet has just run out of battery so I can't watch the rest of my film.

Hope everyone is good!

Sketchy 30-07-2017 01:57 PM

Hi everyone.

Beckie I hope you had fun. I hope the train journey isn't too stressful.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 02:06 PM

I had lots of fun thanks :)

The train journey is ok because she put me on a seat so it's all good.
Although I'm not actually supposed to be on the train becsuse its one of those that you need to book a ticket for the specific train.
In all the fluster of being helped to the train and on to a seat and checking im ok, she's forgotten to check my ticket so thats lucky!
Otherwise I'd have to suffer 2 train changes ro random places instead of just 1!

Anyway! How are you Lorraine?

Sketchy 30-07-2017 02:09 PM

That sounds really stressful. It was nice of her to help you. Hopefully it will be a good quick journey.

I'm ok thanks. I'm accepting that today will be unproductive because I'm tired. I'm going to the shop later though, but thankfully there's a small Tesco very near my flat.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 02:13 PM

Thanks. Ive got just under 2 hours left i think.

Dont worry, sundays are made for resting and being unproductive!

Sketchy 30-07-2017 02:16 PM

Hopefully it will go by quickly. Do you have anything to read to keep you occupied? Is there a tea trolly? I always like to get tea and a snack on the train on long journeys.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 02:24 PM

There is a tea trolley but im trying not to drink anything wlse because i need to avoid train toilets!
Itals right down the other end and id have to take my bags with me and effort!
Ive already had a bottle of coke :/

Sketchy 30-07-2017 02:26 PM

That's a fair point. Train toilets are horrible.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 02:35 PM

Yep!! I avoid them at all costs!

Sketchy 30-07-2017 02:41 PM

I really need to go to the shop. I badly want a cheese sandwich but I have no cheese. Urgh, why am I so lazy?

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 02:49 PM

Best to get it over and done with.
And think of the cheese sandwich! It will be worth it!
Cheese is awesome.

Sketchy 30-07-2017 02:51 PM

You're right. I'm going. Might get some diet cokes too.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 02:58 PM

Good plan!

not_so_insig 30-07-2017 03:02 PM

I am by the seaside. Actually sitting in a shopping centre using the free wifi.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 03:07 PM

Hi Dawn.
That sounds nice!

Sketchy 30-07-2017 03:22 PM

That sounds nice Dawn. I love the seaside.

I've been to the shop and I'm now having a late lunch. Cheese sandwich. Yum.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 03:35 PM

Well done for getting out Lorraine!
Glad you got your sandwich

Sketchy 30-07-2017 03:39 PM

I'm glad I did it, but I'm also glad to be back home. Having an indoors day. Don't feel like facing the world.

How is the train journey going?

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 03:42 PM

Its ok. Not got long left on this train. But then I have to wait almost an hour for my next train. Its only about 30 mins from there anyway.
Hopefully the coffee shop will be open and I can sit in there !

Sketchy 30-07-2017 03:45 PM

I hope the coffee shop is open. It will be nice to get a hot drink after all that traveling. That's a shame you have to wait so long. I'm guessing it was worth it though, because it sounds like you and Katy had a great time.

Eska 30-07-2017 03:52 PM

I just went for a walk and took the skin off the back of my heel :(

Sketchy 30-07-2017 03:58 PM

Oh no Eska. That sounds sore.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 03:59 PM

The coffee shop is open!
In fact, everything is which means the whole station smells of pasties from the cornwall pasty shop which is making me hungry but i must resist! Like i resisted the burger king at Manc Piccadilly :p
So i have a much needed coffee now!
Definitely worth it because we had an awesome weekend!

Oh no eska! That sounds painful

Sketchy 30-07-2017 04:02 PM

Glad it's opened. Enjoy your coffee. It's good you have somewhere to sit with a coffee while you wait for your next train.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 04:05 PM

Yep! Thank goodness this is one of the bigger stations!
Lots of stations round my area are tiny and don't even have a toilet!!

Im very confused by the weather today.
I keep going from being hot to cold and back again!
And it rained a bit but now its sunny.

Whats the weather like for you guys?

Sketchy 30-07-2017 04:10 PM

It's been raining here, but light rain when I was out. I just checked the weather. It's going to be raining all week here. How annoying.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 04:12 PM

The forecast for here isnt too bad.
But when is it actually accurate? Lol

Sketchy 30-07-2017 04:13 PM

That's true. I just hope we get good weather at the end of August when I'm in Arran.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 04:16 PM

Yes you'd need good weather for that! Fingers crossed!

I've almost finished my coffee and still got about 30 mins to wait!

Sketchy 30-07-2017 04:22 PM

Hopefully it will go in fast enough.

I think I'll go for a shower soon. Might make me feel more motivated to do something.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 04:27 PM

Cant complain really. The journey has been very smooth today with no delays or anything which is great for a Sunday!!
Ive probably jinxed it now :p

Thats a good idea lorraine. It might help you feel better

Sketchy 30-07-2017 04:31 PM

You don't have long to go. I'm sure it will go smoothly and you'll be home in no time. Train journeys can be really tiring though.

Cacoethes 30-07-2017 04:34 PM

Yes it's surprising how tired you can get from just sitting down for hours!!

Sketchy 30-07-2017 05:04 PM

I just had a quick shower. Didn't wash my hair though, I'll do that tomorrow, but I feel better for it.

I'm now sitting down to sketch and write.

Buttons. 30-07-2017 05:06 PM

Hope journey continued to go well Beckie!

Sketching and writing sounds good.
