I had a late lunch of falafel so I’m not really hungry. Might just have soup later. I have grapes to snack on too. I’m looking forward to my treat night which will be next week. Before life drawing I’m going to a burger place with my sister and they do amazing veggie burgers. 3 or 4 different ones to choose from. It’s a gourmet burger place.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 06:04 PM

Falafel is yummy!
Used to eat it all the time when I was veggie.

That sounds good!
Burgers are awesome. Especially if you get the posh ones!!

Sketchy 03-10-2017 06:15 PM

The burgers there are so good and such a nice treat. Knowing I have that ahead of me is stopping me from eating junk. Very determined to eat healthier.

What you up to this evening? I’m just going to relax and determined to get rid of this cold. I want to be out and about in town tomorrow.

not_so_insig 03-10-2017 06:17 PM

I had a burger on Sunday. In fact burgers are my downfall because when my bed acts up I tend to binge on burgers. But I haven't had any problems with bed this year so far which is good.

not_so_insig 03-10-2017 06:18 PM

I have my parents coming later.

Sketchy 03-10-2017 06:20 PM

That’s good Dawn. It must be hard.
It’s good your parents are coming over. I hope they have a nice visit.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 06:25 PM

I've got slimming world and holby is on tonight.

Hope you have a nice time with your parents dawn.

not_so_insig 03-10-2017 06:26 PM

Thanks Lorraine and Beckie.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 06:34 PM

Time is going too slowly!

Sketchy 03-10-2017 06:39 PM

It won’t be long until pizza time. It will taste better for the wait. I’m quite jealous.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 06:41 PM

That's true!

Haha! You'll get your burger day soon!

Sketchy 03-10-2017 06:44 PM

It’s aaaaaaaaaaages away. :( Monday.

I can’t believe it’s getting dark already. I do love autumn though. I plan to draw some leaves at some point.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 06:50 PM

It'll be worth the wait!

I know! I'm really cold too.
Don't want to have to leave the house again but I'll only be out 20 mins or so!

Sketchy 03-10-2017 06:58 PM

It is cold. You won’t be out long and then you have that glorious pizza to look forward to.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 07:01 PM

Yep! I am sooo looking forward to it!

I'm trying to avoid putting the heating on because it's expensive!
So wrapped up in jumpers and blanketed!

Sketchy 03-10-2017 07:05 PM

Heating certainly is expensive. I’m going to have to start putting mine on soon. It’s cold up here.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 07:08 PM

If it's cold here it must be freezing in Scotland!!

Buttons. 03-10-2017 07:22 PM

My heating keeps randomly turning itself on since some guy came round to check the boiler and no one can figure out how to turn the damn thing off -_- dread to think what my bill will be by end of the month!

Not that the dog is complaining-she's discovered a new best friend-the radiator :P

Sketchy 03-10-2017 07:26 PM

That’s not good Katy. Maybe phone them back and get it seen to.

I’m keeping warm under my blanket.

Buttons. 03-10-2017 07:46 PM

I'm too tired to deal atm. Will try to get round to it.

Glad you have your blanket, hows your cold?

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 07:47 PM

That doesn't sound good Katy!!
You should get that checked out!

Good plan lorraine!

Im back and pizza is in the oven!

Sketchy 03-10-2017 07:49 PM

My cold is still there but getting better thanks Katy.

Yay, pizza!

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 07:56 PM

There were a couple of people at slimming world who were feeling a bit under the weather. And chels has been a bit coldy too!
(She'd better not give it to me this week!!)

Sketchy 03-10-2017 07:59 PM

It’s certainly going around. I hope you don’t get it.

My doorbell went and I ignored it because I freaked out. Starting to panic now. No idea who it could be. If it was important they would surely leave a note.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 08:24 PM


Try not to worry, like you said, if it was important, they would have left a note or phoned you or something.

Sketchy 03-10-2017 08:26 PM

It won’t be anyone I know. Everyone I know would text beforehand. Maybe somebody selling something. I’m so easily freaked out by these things.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 08:29 PM

I get freaked out about things like that too.
Could be selling things or a charity person or something.
Its hard when you live alone.

Sketchy 03-10-2017 08:31 PM

I know. I always think of the worst case scenario. I’m calming down now.

What you up to now? I’m going to do some writing. I have writing to submit for my writing groups in a few weeks, so I’ll work on that.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 08:45 PM

Glad you're calming down.
It can be really unsettling.

Im just watching holby.
Will go to bed after this.
I am so tired!

Writing sounds good!

Sketchy 03-10-2017 08:47 PM

Enjoy holby. I keep saying I’m going to start watching that.

Buttons. 03-10-2017 08:52 PM

It's understandable to get worried by things like that, you aren't alone in feeling on edge Lorraine. As Beckie said if it was anything important they'd leave a note or ring.

Enjoy Holby Beckie :)

Sketchy 03-10-2017 08:53 PM

Thanks Katy.

What are you up to this evening?

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 08:53 PM

It is good.
Not as good as casualty though, in my opinion!

not_so_insig 03-10-2017 08:53 PM

It could be kids messing about Lorraine. I had that with some kids during school holidays. I know how you feel though as I get scared if someone rings my doorbell and I am not expecting anyone.

Sketchy 03-10-2017 08:55 PM

It’s just strange that the buzzer didn’t go first. The door to the flats is always locked.

I’m just going to put it out my mind now.

What you up to Dawn? Did your parents visit you?

not_so_insig 03-10-2017 08:56 PM

My parents are here Lorraine.

Sketchy 03-10-2017 08:59 PM

How are they? It’s nice to have a visit.

Cpt_Stunning 03-10-2017 09:01 PM

Egg on toast, cup of tea then bedtime soon, always the same, don't want to go to bed, but don't want to get up either.

Cacoethes 03-10-2017 09:02 PM

I'm off to bed now.

Enjoy your evenings guys!
Night night!

Sketchy 03-10-2017 09:09 PM

Goodnight Beckie. Sleep well.

That sounds good Chris. I know that feeling. Sometimes I just don’t know what to do with myself.

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 08:12 AM

Good Morning

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 10:12 AM


Im so tired. Might go back to bed after carer has been.

Shy_Bambi 04-10-2017 10:23 AM

Good morning all!
Going back to sleep sounds good, Beckie! Wish I could do that too!

Buttons. 04-10-2017 10:24 AM

Morning all.

A rest sounds like a good plan Beckie-recharge your batteries.

I have an other gastroscopy or whatever it's called today-not looking forward to it and I'm bloody starving not eating for it. If don't feel too lousy after the sedation I intend to eat myself out of house and home afterwards :P

Shy_Bambi 04-10-2017 11:07 AM

I have NO idea what that is but I hope it goes well for you!!
I'm getting ready to go and collect my meds. Don't really want to go out today though :/

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 02:19 PM

Woken up from my nap.
I really needed that!

I hope your procedure goes ok Katy!

not_so_insig 04-10-2017 03:21 PM

Afternoon all. I have my new nurse coming today. My cat has a cold. He caught it from my other cat.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 04:20 PM

Hi dawn
Hope it goes ok with the nurse

Sketchy 04-10-2017 04:35 PM

Hope it goes ok Dawn.

I’m in town in costa. I finally managed to go into town! I got the fabric I wanted and some other buttons and accessories and I got the foo fighters album.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 04:37 PM

Yay that's brilliant Lorraine!
Sounds like it's been a successful trip!

I think I am coming down with a cold.
Got the beginnings of a general coldy feeling.
I hope it stays away!
At least until after my birthday!
Time to break out the Lemsip!!
