Voldemort 02-05-2017 08:34 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 02-05-2017 08:38 PM

Hey Amy!

Sketchy 02-05-2017 08:43 PM

Hi Amy.

Agatha is a cute name for a cat. My friend's cat is called Joy and she comes up to you when you put your hand out. She's also quite a chatty wee thing with big eyes. I like giving her treats.

Shy_Bambi 02-05-2017 08:50 PM

...'His' name was 'Agatha'? Isn't Agatha a girls name though? D: I mean, I guess you can call your cat whatever you like really. My bunny was called Luna though he was male lol (I swear he wasn't male when I got him though he was female)

Cats are awesome. They're underrated, I think.

Voldemort 02-05-2017 08:52 PM

We have Ronji (ginger and 10), Midnight (black and 9), Pumpkin (ginger and 8), Trixie (black and white and 2), Rupert (black and white and 1) and Anoushka (tortoiseshell and 8 months). And Rolo the dog, Labrador /husky cross and 8. Well. The first three are turning those ages in the next couple of months and the last 3 are current ages. Rolo is 8 this month actually.

Cacoethes 02-05-2017 08:57 PM

Yep, Agatha was a boy!! My neighbours were quirky! They were the absolute best neighbours though. I miss them!
I think it's quite difficult to tell with bunnies!

Omg I'm jealous of all your animals Amy!

Sketchy 02-05-2017 08:57 PM

Wow that's a lot of animals Amy.

Voldemort 02-05-2017 08:59 PM

Yeah. I know. We keep acquiring them. :P

Shy_Bambi 02-05-2017 09:04 PM

Oh wow..I'd love to live at your place with all those fluffballs running around!

Cacoethes 02-05-2017 09:15 PM

My friends have 7 bunnies. It's fun at their flat because they just run loose!

When I lived with my family, we had 6 horses, 2 dogs, 2 cats, a rabbit, 20 chickens, 4 ducks and some tropical fish!

Shy_Bambi 02-05-2017 09:29 PM

Oh my goodness!! I feel so left out! The most I've had is 3 cats! I have 2 cats 3 african land snails, 4 fish and a hamster. Very tame lol!

I'm going to turn in for the night guys! I'm so boooorrreeeddd.

Goodnighy!!

Voldemort 02-05-2017 09:35 PM

At one point we had 6 cats, 2 dogs, 5 rabbits, 2 mice and a hamster...

One dog found a new family, some of the baby bunnies died, 2 got regimes and mama rabbit went to a better home (we moved house and didn't have the space inside so she was in a shed and we were terrible to her, not deliberately). The rodents died, a cat died, one got rejoined and then another one died last year. In the last year and a half we've acquired 3 cats.

I hasten to add, the dog went because she was happier at her new home (someone was minding her for us when we were away and then they didn't want to be separated) and the cat was mother of the 2 cats that died and she was so unhappy after the babies that we had to regime her and she's much happier and settled now so it was the right move. We're not in the habit of just getting animals and getting rid of them.

Shy_Bambi 02-05-2017 09:38 PM

Losing animslas is the worst :( But Its good to hear your bunny and cat went to a good home!

Cacoethes 02-05-2017 09:38 PM

Goodnight Rebecca!

I love seeing pics of your animals on FB Amy!

Voldemort 02-05-2017 09:41 PM

Awh thanks! I love my babies like they're actually part of me. 4 of our current cats Ritzi's had (and me since I've been here) since birth, Anoushka came to us at about 5 weeks (she was dumped) and Trixie was about 1 and heavily pregnant from an abusive home.

Cacoethes 02-05-2017 09:48 PM

Aww bless!
They are lucky to have you and Ritzi!

Voldemort 02-05-2017 11:00 PM

Awh thanks! I like to think so.

[Luna] 03-05-2017 08:09 AM

Morning guys, what's everyone up to today?

chinahorse 03-05-2017 08:29 AM

Morning :) I have group and individual therapy fun times.

How about you?

[Luna] 03-05-2017 08:36 AM

Morning Lillie, fun indeed! I hope they go well.

I'm currently dying my hair. I have an appointment at the fertility clinic this afternoon and Slimming world this evening.

not_so_insig 03-05-2017 09:59 AM

I am going swimming today.

I have had someone from the council knock on the door. Apparently we are having new entrance doors due to health and safety.

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 10:34 AM

Morning guys

I hope group and therapy goes ok Lillie!

What colour are you doing your hair luna? And good luck with clinic and sw!

Have fun at swimming dawn.

I need to post a parcel and get some stuff from asda (I think I should probably just move into asda tbh!)
And I'm visiting my friend in hospital this afternoon :)

[Luna] 03-05-2017 10:41 AM

I hope you enjoy swimming Dawn.

Thanks Beckie, I've dyed it purple.
I know how you feel about ASDA. We have a sainsburys up the road and I'm pretty much in it everyday. I hope it's nice seeing your friend.

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 10:45 AM

Purple sounds nice!

Thanks :) I haven't seen her in ages so it should be nice

[Luna] 03-05-2017 10:47 AM

Sounds good. Do you have far to travel?
I'm really anxious about today. It's so silly.

Voldemort 03-05-2017 10:54 AM

Morning all. Sounds like you all have busy days! I have to mow the lawn and I potentially have a psych appointment this afternoon.

[Luna] 03-05-2017 10:56 AM

Morning love. How are you? I hope mowing the lawn goes ok.
It looks like it's going to rain here.

Voldemort 03-05-2017 10:58 AM

It's nice rather here thankfully, but we have a huge lawn and the grass is so long so it's a big job and I hate it. Ritzi can't manage the lawnmower though so I don't have a choice.

[Luna] 03-05-2017 10:59 AM

Ah I see. I don't envy you. Luckily we only have a small garden and J likes gardening.

Voldemort 03-05-2017 11:33 AM

I don't envy me either. :P Lucky with your small garden! I need to move my butt and go get my blood results and then I shall do it. I will!

chinahorse 03-05-2017 11:37 AM

Wow everyone is full of busy!

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 11:47 AM

It's not a long journey really. Like 30 mins on the train and another 30 mins or so on the bus. And then a 20 min walk.

It's not silly to be anxious Luna. <3

I have a small strip of grass outside my house and I hate mowing it. Got to be done though!
I could do with a strimmer though.

[Luna] 03-05-2017 11:54 AM

I've just got on the train and seen that my hair is patchy as ****! It looks horrendous. I need to buy some hair bands and more hair dye.
Just what I need when going to a posh hospital. Gah!

chinahorse 03-05-2017 12:02 PM

Luna I'm sure its more obvious to you than yto anyone else.

That is a heck of a journey beckie!

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 12:03 PM

I'm sure no one will notice Luna. It'll be fine!

Yeah. I like long journeys though (as long as the train/bus is quiet) because I can just put my headphones on and zone out for a bit!

[Luna] 03-05-2017 12:09 PM

You're probably right but I'm very self-conscious about it now.
Just watching Peter Kay on my phone while on the train to try and distract from the anxiety.

That is one heck on a journey beckington.
How are you doing Lillie?

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 12:19 PM

Peter Kay is funny! Hope it helps x

[Luna] 03-05-2017 12:22 PM

I was laughing quietly to myself and some woman is giving me daggers!
Apparently my laughing face mortally offends her.

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 12:26 PM

Go and laugh in her face! Miserable cow!

[Luna] 03-05-2017 12:27 PM

Some people are just so strange! The train also suddenly smells like burnt toast.

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 12:31 PM

Yep!
How very odd!!

My friend asked me to get a cake or something so we could eat it all and end up in a cake coma just like the good old days! But slimming world :(
So I'm going to look for a healthier option. Any ideas?!

not_so_insig 03-05-2017 01:28 PM

Perhaps you could bake a slimming world friendly cake Beckie?

I have been swimming. It wasn't too bad. That person with disabilities was there again but he was with his regular carer who tells him off. Though for some strange reason he decided to talk to me. I say talk but it was random sentences.

Voldemort 03-05-2017 01:32 PM

Lawn is mown! Just waiting for Ritzi to get done in the shower so I can hop in and then psych appointment.

Luna, I hope your anxiety eases a bit.

What about yoghurt rice cakes, Beckie? Yummy but a bit more slimming world friendly (I think)?

I find it really irritating when strangers talk to me, hah.

[Luna] 03-05-2017 01:40 PM

Is there a low syn treat you like that you could have instead Beckie. I love those fibre one brownies.

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 02:02 PM

The fibre one brownies are awesome! They didn't have any in asda today so I got the lemon drizzle ones instead. I have yet to try them!

I've got plenty of time so I'll look around. I'm sure I'll be able to find something!

Shy_Bambi 03-05-2017 02:42 PM

Good afternoon! Lemon drizzle sounds yum, though I've never had them either!

That woman on the train sounds like a right sulk Luna. She needs to lighten up.

Cacoethes 03-05-2017 03:03 PM

I thought visiting was 3 but it's actually 3:30. Oops!
So just chilling in the reception area for 30 mins!

[Luna] 03-05-2017 03:18 PM

I haven't tried the lemon drizzle ones yet. Let me know what you think of them.

How are you Rebecca?

Shy_Bambi 03-05-2017 03:33 PM

I'm okay thank you Luna! Just watching tv. It's very miserable out, so I'm staying in today. Are you up to much?

not_so_insig 03-05-2017 03:57 PM

I am supposed to have a cpn's appointment this afternoon. I am dreading it. Not because I am unwell but the type of person she is. If she makes an unhelpful comment then I am definitely going to post my complaint letter.

The neighbours barking dog is back. If it is still barking by the time I go to bed then I am going to complain to the council.
