Collie's need a name like that. =P

And yes he does like adventuring - I'd love to see what he gets up to! He's back and snuggled up next to me now though on my/his blanket.

one_step_closer 04-09-2018 07:13 PM

Did you see that programme, The Secret Life Of Cats, I think it was where they put cameras on cats collars and filmed what they got up to?

nonperson 04-09-2018 07:19 PM

Was that the one where they tracked different cats and you could see the routes they all took on a map and how far they actually travelled? Some of them went miles! Might have been a different programme...

one_step_closer 04-09-2018 07:23 PM

I'm not sure if that was the same one of not, I remember that though. I think there have probably been a few similar programmes. How well travelled do you think your cat is?

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 07:28 PM

I think i remember seeing that advertised

nonperson 04-09-2018 07:32 PM

The one I'm thinking of was probably on about 10 years ago!

I don't think he's that well travelled. I know some of the places he gets to because people tell me sometimes if they've seen him... but it's usually not that far from home. I have acres of parkland on my doorstep so he probably goes much further than I dare think!

one_step_closer 04-09-2018 07:42 PM

Do you know if he goes to other people's houses for treats?!

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 07:55 PM

We had cats where we used to live.
But they were outdoor cats and lived in the barn.
No idea what they got up to apart from finding various varieties of small creature disembowled under the horse rugs...
They were sweeties though

nonperson 04-09-2018 08:02 PM

I often find various varieties of small disemboweled creatures in my house!

And no I don't think he goes to anyone else's houses. He's a bit too skittish. But one of my other cats used to. When I spoke to the lady who livd there she said she didn't know his name so called him Silver Balls! Not in a rude way but more in a David Beckham Golden Balls way because he was such a pretty cat.

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 08:05 PM

Silver balls LOL!!

My nanny on my dad's side took in a cat unintentionally. So the cat kind of adopted my nanny!
He is imaginatively named 'BC' which is short for Black Cat

chinahorse 04-09-2018 08:10 PM

Evening all :)

Hows things?

nonperson 04-09-2018 08:13 PM

Beckie, that reminds me of TC (Top Cat) and he is very cool so therefore the name BC is awesome. =P

Evening Lillie!

Things are alright, just chilling on the sofa as normal... How're you?

chinahorse 04-09-2018 08:17 PM

It is sofa chilling o'clock tbf. Thats what I'm doing too.

I had a fun filled day of being rushed off my feet doing things I've never done before with many many equipment failures. Did have a frappe and gingerbread bear from starbucks and a tiny lie in though.

nonperson 04-09-2018 08:19 PM

Oh that sounds a bit like my day! Equipment failure and running around like crazy... and lots of snacks because there's loads of food in the mess room at the moment... No lie in though, but no extra work at the end of the day for a change. =)

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 08:19 PM

Ah top cat!
Slightly before my time but I have seen it!

I too am chilling on the sofa

Sounds like you deserved that frappe Lillie!

nonperson 04-09-2018 08:20 PM

Yes I'm old, thanks Beckie...!!

chinahorse 04-09-2018 08:29 PM

Oh what joy equipment failures are NP! Glad you had no extra work. I did though :( and left loads not done too.

I had the frappe before the mayhem of work though :(

Vintage NP. You're vintage!

nonperson 04-09-2018 08:33 PM

Oooooh, vintage! That's made me feel much better. =D

I also left loads not done, never enough hours in the day... hence extra work most days.

You still deserved the frappe. Always nice to have a treat regardless of what the day has in store.

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 08:36 PM

Oops! Sorry np!!

Omg my mum, me and Jasmine were tidying Jasmine's room and they still have an England football shirt that I got when I was 5!!
It must be retro/vintage now!!
Im going to be 27 in 5 weeks

chinahorse 04-09-2018 08:41 PM

I thought you were older than me Beckie. And wow, that is a heck of a find.

True np, treats help.

nonperson 04-09-2018 08:43 PM

You young'ns… *sigh*

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 08:54 PM

I feel about 80 tbh
Everytime I get up from the sofa or out of bed at least 2 parts of my body cracks!

nonperson 04-09-2018 09:00 PM

I have clicky knees and elbows.

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 09:05 PM

I have clicky everything XD

chinahorse 04-09-2018 09:31 PM

Me too Beckie!! :-P I also made old lady noises so bad the patient laughed at me today.

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 09:36 PM

I make the old lady noises too :p

chinahorse 04-09-2018 09:46 PM

How is it only Tuesday? I feel like this week should be well over by now!

Cacoethes 04-09-2018 09:51 PM

It does feel much later than tuesdsy!

Aubergine 04-09-2018 09:56 PM

Heya. :)

Cacoethes 05-09-2018 11:49 AM

Morning guys

Buttons. 05-09-2018 01:31 PM

Afternoon Beckie :)

not_so_insig 05-09-2018 02:18 PM

Afternoon all. I have been swimming today. Every man and his dog went swimming today. I think it's because it's the first week that the kiddies are back in school.

There's this woman who has some sort of learning disabilities who likes to talk to you. She likes to tell everyone that they should join weight watchers regardless of your weight. If you are having a conversation with someone else she interrupts. My dad friends call her the motivator because ignoring her and carry on swimming is the only way to deal with her. Unfortunately she was there. I would tell her to f*** off if I was on my own. Being blunt is the only language she understands.

Cacoethes 05-09-2018 02:22 PM

Hi Buttons! :)

Glad you went swimming dawn.
Telling her to **** off sounds pretty harsh though
You can be blunt without being rude

not_so_insig 05-09-2018 02:59 PM

Yeah unfortunately if you tell her to stop bothering you she takes no notice. It's the only language she understands.

one_step_closer 05-09-2018 03:39 PM


I think cat on my lap has just farted.

not_so_insig 05-09-2018 03:44 PM

Oh dear Lindsay that doesn't sound great.

Cacoethes 05-09-2018 03:49 PM

Nice Lindsay! Lol

one_step_closer 05-09-2018 03:54 PM

He left and went to do a poo! Lol, I could not deal with having a child.

What's everyone up to?

Cacoethes 05-09-2018 03:57 PM


Im just chilling watching films
College tomorrow for enrolment day!

one_step_closer 05-09-2018 04:04 PM

Ooh, that is exciting! How are you feeling? Will you be getting your timetable etc tomorrow?

Cacoethes 05-09-2018 04:08 PM

I'll be glad to go back
Been so bored!

one_step_closer 05-09-2018 04:17 PM

Are you getting new stationery?! You have to get a proper new smelling bag.

I remember I'd always want a bit of a break when I was studying but then when the break came it would be far too much time. I hope you enjoy being back.

Cacoethes 05-09-2018 04:21 PM

I might do!
Could use a new notebook and some pens!
And I'm not sure what bag to use

Yep same here!
And its been a long summer

one_step_closer 05-09-2018 04:23 PM

Does this mean you'll be starting classes this week or not till next week? I'd like to send you a back to college pack if that's ok, so don't buy too many pens etc if you're ok with me sending you something.

Cacoethes 05-09-2018 04:29 PM

Not sure!
Im still not sure if I'll have to go in straight away because I've completed some of the course already.
That's very kind of you Lindsay! Thank you!

one_step_closer 05-09-2018 04:34 PM

You're welcome. If you have any specific requests let me know.

Will you be doing any freshers activities?

not_so_insig 05-09-2018 04:36 PM

one_step_closer 05-09-2018 04:38 PM

not_so_insig 05-09-2018 04:44 PM
