Man I want a pasty now!!
But im not going all the way to asda again.
I'll just have my super noodles.

Peterborough train station always smells really strongly of pasties because there's a cornwall pasty company shop there by the entrance. Its always very tempting!

nonperson 28-12-2017 02:12 PM

I'm not sure I'd be able to resist.

But also they're just not the same if they're not actually made, bought and eaten in Cornwall.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 02:13 PM

That is true!!

Ugh. I really should get some work done but just not feeling it!
Got to be done though.

nonperson 28-12-2017 03:03 PM

Maybe if you just get a little bit done, it's better than nothing.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 03:13 PM

That is true.
I want to get my english assignment finished.
Its only 400-500 words so it should take me no time.
It should.
But I am very easily distracted!
And I sometimes find it hard to organise things in my head.
But i should be able to finish it and that would be a bit off my mind.

You got anything planned today?

nonperson 28-12-2017 03:42 PM

Maybe try to organise things on paper? That's what I do, it can make more sense then or least help you to make a bit more sense of it.

Nope. I was maybe going to go food shopping but I can't be bothered. I think I need a day to do nothing.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 03:46 PM

Hope your essay goes well Beckie.

Also hope you enjoy your relaxing day nonperson.

nonperson 28-12-2017 03:50 PM

Hi Buttons. How're you?

Buttons. 28-12-2017 03:52 PM

I'm a little worried because I had a seizure in the taxi home from the shops with my support worker but I'm going to try and make a GP appointment tomorrow and am currently watched Russell Howard's comedy to take my mind off things :)

nonperson 28-12-2017 03:57 PM

Oh no! Hope you're okay... Is that the first time it's ever happened?

Russell Howard is a good distraction, he's one of a few comedians that can make me laugh out loud.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 03:59 PM

It's not the first time it's happened but it's the first time in quite a while.

Me too. I also tend to laugh out loud at Peter Kay and Dara O'Brien. And Michael Mcyntire. I've been trying to find other comedians as I've watched them to death but I haven't fond any yet. Any suggestions would be gratefully revieved.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 04:06 PM

Seizures suck
Hope you feel better soon!

Ive made a start on the essay.
Once I get going I'm generally ok!

Russell Howard is awesome.
I also like Frankie Boyle, Dara O brien, Romesh Ranganathan....actually I like loads of them!!
I love shows like Mock the week and have I got news for you

Buttons. 28-12-2017 04:10 PM

I know, I noticed they weren't exactly fun when I had my first one :P

I'm sure your essay will be brill :)

I like all of those things too except Frankie Boyle, he can be really funny but sometimes I think he goes too far.

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 04:23 PM

Hi there. I didn't wake up until 1 pm. Probably fall asleep after tea.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 04:38 PM

Thanks Buttons!

I keep writing like a sentence and then rewarding myself with 30 mins on the internet. This is why it takes me forever to do essays XD

Frankie Boyle does say some very controversial things.
But I have an extremely inappropriate sense of humour so he appeals to me.
I dont often let the darkest side of my humour out!

Sketchy 28-12-2017 04:40 PM

I hope you are ok Buttons. Sending hugs.

How is everyone?

I finally bought my hair dye. I’m in a coffee shop just now.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 04:57 PM

Tbh Beckie so long as you get the essay done I don't think it matters how many breaks you take.

Hair dye sounds good Lorraine, same colour?

Sketchy 28-12-2017 04:59 PM

Yip, still pink. I also got a bleaching kit to do my roots which are big and very brown.

Might do it tonight.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 05:02 PM

Pink is a good colour. I hate my roots such a pain!

Sketchy 28-12-2017 05:06 PM

I know. So annoying.

You feeling any better?

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 05:08 PM

Good point Buttons!

Pink is a great colour!

Sketchy 28-12-2017 05:17 PM


What’s everyone up to this evening? I’m hoping I dye my hair, but I bet I’ll probably end up doing it tomorrow. So lazy!

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 05:25 PM

I've got slimming world tonight.
Its on a different day this week.
Got to face the music at some point!
Dread to think how much I've put on!
But I've enjoyed myself over Christmas.
Weight can always be lost again!

Sketchy 28-12-2017 06:14 PM

As long as you’ve enjoyed your Christmas. You can get healthy again after the new year. This is the time of year to treat yourself. That’s what I’m telling myself.

I’m home now and glad to be. It’s so icy outside. I nearly slipped a few times.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 07:01 PM

Yep thats what ive been telling myself too!
Back on track now!

Glad you're home.
Its pretty icy here too.

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 07:13 PM

It's been snowing here.

Sketchy 28-12-2017 07:22 PM

I think we’re supposed to get snow tomorrow.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 07:23 PM

We had a sprinkling of snow the other day but that is it

Sketchy 28-12-2017 07:24 PM

We had snow on Christmas Day, which was nice.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 08:08 PM

It was hailing quite badly last night and today here.

Hope slimming world goes well Beckie.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 08:10 PM

Snow on Christmas dsy sounds nice!

Not a fan of hail though!

Slimming world did not go well! Lol!
But we were all in the same boat.
Back on it now :)

What's everyone up to this evening?

Sketchy 28-12-2017 08:23 PM

I was going to dye my hair, but leaving it for tomorrow, so I don’t know what I’m doing. Probably relaxing and finding something to watch.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 08:25 PM

There should be some good things on tv.
I find this time of the year there are some good movies on!
Im waiting for eastenders to come on.

Buttons. 28-12-2017 08:25 PM

That's true of everyone I think Beckie but I'm sure you'll lose it soon :)

Relaxing sounds good Lorraine. I'm just watching Simpsons.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 08:30 PM

Simpsons is good!

I finished my English essay. Whoop!

Sketchy 28-12-2017 08:32 PM

Yay. Well done Beckie.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 08:39 PM


one_step_closer 28-12-2017 08:40 PM

Good stuff Beckie!

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 08:41 PM

Thanks Lindsay!

What are you up to this evening?

Sketchy 28-12-2017 08:41 PM

Sister got me champagne truffles. Tempted to open them!

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 08:51 PM

Ooo they sound nice!

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 08:56 PM

I had 3 boxes of biscuits for Christmas and a mug with a slot to hold biscuits in.

Sketchy 28-12-2017 08:59 PM

That sounds nice Dawn. I got enough chocolate to last me ages.

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:03 PM

What is it with boozy chocolates, they sound disgusting to me!

Dawn, do you dunk your biscuits? I don't drink hot drinks but I have had a dunking experience before, was a bit strange!

I went to Aldi but saw nothing I wanted but had to buy things anyway because there was no way out the shop except through the tills. So I have some popped crisps to eat. Will maybe watch that thing on iPlayer Six Robots and Us I think it's called.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 09:04 PM

I've eaten all my chocolates.
Now i have no more temptation in the way!

You HAVE to dunk the biscuits!
Its the law!!

I've never heard of that programme Lindsay!

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:07 PM

Are you not tempted to buy a selection box from the sales? I'm guilty of that.

Did you ever see the programme The Robot Will See You Now? I think it was maybe on channel 4. That was an interesting one.

Sketchy 28-12-2017 09:07 PM

I hope you enjoy your program.

There’s a posh chocolate shop in Glasgow that does champagne truffles that are so yummy, which are the ones I have. I confess, I like my boozy chocolates.

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:09 PM

Do chocolate liqueurs have actual liquid in the middle?

not_so_insig 28-12-2017 09:12 PM

No Lindsay I don't dunk my biscuits. I can't stand soggy biscuits.

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 09:14 PM

I think you and me are in this together Dawn. Breaking Beckie's law.
