Chocolate with gravy would not be good though.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 08:56 PM

Nah chocolate and gravy would not be good!!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 08:58 PM

Chocolate oranges bring out the violence. They are so hard to break.

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 08:59 PM

I think they might be hard to break if you do it the way the adverts used to show (from what I recall) but I just pull it apart.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 09:01 PM

I like to break them. I'm quite good at it :p

Buttons. 21-12-2017 09:19 PM

Why am I not surprised Beckie :P

I have to confess I absolutely hate chocolate oranges. Growing up I had a friend of the family who insisted on buying me one every year which was a lovely thought and mum and I couldn't make ourselves break it to them that I hated it so in the end we just accepted them and gave them to my dad instead-he benefited quite well from that system :P

Sketchy 21-12-2017 09:22 PM

Hi Buttons. That’s a shame you didn’t like them. But lucky for your dad.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 09:23 PM

Lucky for your dad though :p
I know quite a few people who don't like chocolate orange.

Sketchy 21-12-2017 09:24 PM

I’ve never met a chocolate I didn’t like.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 09:25 PM

Me neither lorraine!

Buttons. 21-12-2017 09:30 PM

Ha ha I am a bit of a weirdo when it comes to chocolate I'm either in love with it or can't stand it, it varies. And I don't like dairy milk as I've got older, just Galaxy and so on.

Sketchy 21-12-2017 09:32 PM

I love chocolate, but I’m not as obsessed as I used to be. Still love it though.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 09:36 PM

I love all chocolate!
I used to have a serious sweet tooth but recently, like only in the last month or so, have preferred savoury!

Buttons. 21-12-2017 09:42 PM

I prefer savoury as a general rule too. Did enjoy the profiteroles me and support worker got from Aldi though.

Sketchy 21-12-2017 09:43 PM

Ooh yum profiteroles!

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 09:45 PM

Ooo i havent had profiteroles in ages!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 09:50 PM

What’s everyone up to tomorrow?

I don’t have any plans. Might go out a wander.

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 09:52 PM

Chocolate is the best. I munched all my advent calendar chocolates one night because I was hungry.

Tomorrow I'm going to the gym with a new support assistant. I've met her before and she seemed ok so hopefully it'll go alright. I also should be getting a delivery so I hope it doesn't come while I'm out.

Are there any good walks near you Lorraine?

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 09:54 PM

I have to go to the post office again to pick up a parcel.
Im not sure what it is though! Can't remember if ive ordered anything else.
My brain is just not working atm!!
I'm going to find a Christmas film to watch tomorrow and wrap all the presents with some cheeky chocolates!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 09:55 PM

I hope you enjoy the gym.

There are plenty of parks near me, so there is always somewhere nice to walk.

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 09:55 PM

Does your post office always have a huge queue at this time of the year?

Sketchy 21-12-2017 09:56 PM

Good plan Beckie. I did my gift wrapping with some cheeky chocolates too.

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 09:56 PM

Hope the weather is suitable for a walk if you're going Lorraine. Not slippy or any kind of weather that you dislike walking in!

Sketchy 21-12-2017 09:58 PM

If the weather is bad I’ll probably just go for a coffee. My dad got me a lovely hat and scarf for my birthday, so I’ll be all wrapped up warm.

one_step_closer 21-12-2017 09:59 PM

Cold ears and neck are the worst, cold in general is horrible! Glad you have some nice accessories to keep you warm.

Sketchy 21-12-2017 10:01 PM

Thanks. It’s horrible being cold. At least it’s not as cold as last week.

Cacoethes 21-12-2017 10:03 PM

No the post offices have been fairly empty here!

I hate cold ears!
Its been very mild the last couple of days though.
I haven't even needed a coat, just a hoodie!

one_step_closer 22-12-2017 01:07 PM

Hi everyone. How are you all getting on today?

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 01:12 PM

Hey Lindsay!
Ive pretty much just got up.

How are you?

one_step_closer 22-12-2017 01:13 PM

Did you sleep ok?

I'm alright, decided not to go to the gym since I need to wait for the delivery and I also just can't be bothered.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 01:27 PM

It was a very restless night.
Not sure why thats happening recently!

That's fair enough!
You don't really want to miss a delivery this close to Christmas

chinahorse 22-12-2017 01:46 PM

Morning guys :)

What's in the delivery?

Sorry to hear your night wasn't great beckie :( hopefully you can have a low key day today.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 01:48 PM

Hey Lillie!
Nice to see you!
How are you doing?

Ive got a few things to do today but nothing taxing really!

chinahorse 22-12-2017 02:02 PM

:) I'm rather rubbish. My body gave up finally and I've had to take the next 2 days off work. Still got a mountain of things to do as well.

Glad you don't have to rush around.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 02:09 PM

Sorry to hear that :(
Make sure you take it easy and look after yourself!

Buttons. 22-12-2017 03:37 PM

Sorry you are struggling Lillie. Hope everyone else is as well as possible.

I'm just feeling very physically and emotionally tired. I actually cried at the prospect of doing anything this morning. But I got up and did it anyway so win.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 03:50 PM

Well done for getting it done Buttons.
It can be so hard but you are winning!

one_step_closer 22-12-2017 04:17 PM

The delivery is a couple of presents for my brother, still hasn't arrived.

Lillie, I hope you can have at least some time to relax.

Keep going Buttons. Proud of you.

How are you Dawn?

I've just watched the film The Fourth Kind. I've seen it before but a long time ago, enjoyed it and was kind of freaked out but then read the stuff about it online. Totally spoiled the film! It's about alien abductions so if anyone likes those kind of films and is thinking about watching it don't read anything about it online before you watch it.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 04:19 PM

How annoying Lindsay.
Waiting for deliveries is annoying.

Ive never seen that film!
Might have to give it a watch!

I've wrapped all the presents.
Still sitting on the floor for some reason :p

one_step_closer 22-12-2017 04:22 PM

Yay for finishing the wrapping! It's actually quite nice to sit on the floor sometimes, I find, since a lot of the time we sit on actual chairs etc.

I'm hoping the delivery is actually going to come today. I have to do some hoovering and other housework that might make me not hear the door so I'm putting it off until it arrives. Don't want to be rushing about on Sunday if it doesn't arrive today and I'm having to wait in quietly tomorrow too.

not_so_insig 22-12-2017 04:45 PM

I am ok thanks Lindsay. My phone is behaving itself for now but it behaved itself for one day and then it misbehaved so fingers crossed.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 04:48 PM

I do like to sit on the floor sometimes!

Hope the delivery comes
Sometimes you just don't know with these people

Fingers crossed your phone keeps behaving dawn!

not_so_insig 22-12-2017 04:51 PM

I am waiting for a parcel but it's coming via royal mail not a courier.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 05:03 PM

Royal mail are a bit more reliable than couriers!

Im going to try and get some more of my essay done

Buttons. 22-12-2017 05:05 PM

Thanks all support appreciated.

Hope your parcelt turns up soon Dawn.

Good luck with the essay Beckie :)

I have a new game, can you guess which wonderful weirdo who is part of our distraction crew sent me this wonderful card?

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 05:21 PM


That is so awesome!!

Sketchy 22-12-2017 05:52 PM

I wonder who?

I’m in Asda cafe having a Diet Coke before I go and buy leggings and a jumper. My dad gave me an Asda card with some money on it, so I’m going to use it.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 05:58 PM

Always nice to treat yourself!
I treated myself to some new PJs for Christmas day

Sketchy 22-12-2017 06:00 PM

Lovely. Did you get Christmassy ones?
