Thanks buttons :)

Glad you managed to get out for lunch!
Good plan to stock up on supplies.
My nanny said she did the same!

Sketchy 27-02-2018 04:36 PM

Hey all.

I went for a coffee with my sister and got caught in the snow. I’m home now and have the fire on.

Pomegranate 27-02-2018 04:41 PM

Sounds like a nice day. We’ve had a small flurry but that’s it.

Sketchy 27-02-2018 04:42 PM

Hey Emma. You up to much?

Pomegranate 27-02-2018 04:45 PM

Nope, all I’ve done today is two lots of washing and watched tv with the cat!

What are you upto this evening?

Sketchy 27-02-2018 04:46 PM

I’m going to do a washing too, relax and try keep warm. It’s so cold.

wildly insane 27-02-2018 05:15 PM

Go Lillie, atta girl!
we didn't clip the dog, thought the weather was a bit cold so it would be mean :P

Eska 27-02-2018 05:25 PM

Hi everyone! It isn’t snowing here, it’s been gloriously sunny, but it is between -8 and -16 depending on how high up you are. The wind today was so cold!

Sketchy 27-02-2018 05:30 PM

Hi Hannah. Hi Eska.

Wow Eska, that’s really cold!

wildly insane 27-02-2018 05:30 PM

that's cold Eska!

Eska 27-02-2018 05:36 PM

Hi Lorraine and wildly insane, how are you both?

It is definitely cold! I was dressed up pretty warm so didn’t feel it too much except for my fingers and my ears a bit. Still need to go out to pick up some food though, I think that’s going to be chilly. Luckily I have a super fluffy hat.

Sketchy 27-02-2018 05:39 PM

I’m ok thanks.

Wrap up warm Eska.

wildly insane 27-02-2018 05:50 PM

I read "pick your food" for a second there Eska, rather than "pick up food"! I thought, what's growing out there now to pick and in this cold as well.

chinahorse 27-02-2018 05:50 PM

Eeeesh that is so cold Eska!!

s freezing out. Thought my face would drop off its so windy and cold! My heating is on a thermostat sensor and to keep it at 17.5 the radiators are constantly on!

wildly insane 27-02-2018 05:52 PM

Hi Lorraine, my cats have been in all day thanks to the cold, they're going to drive us crazy tonight I can tell.

Cacoethes 27-02-2018 05:57 PM

Ive just got home and put the heating straight on!

Sketchy 27-02-2018 06:00 PM

Hey Beckie.

Poor kitties.

Cacoethes 27-02-2018 06:26 PM

Think I'm going to do a hot water bottle!

Sketchy 27-02-2018 06:29 PM

That’s a good idea Beckie.

Even though it’s cold I’m going to have a Diet Coke. Very thirsty.

Eska 27-02-2018 06:33 PM

Survived the trip to the shop :)

Hot water bottle sounds like a plan Beckie!

Enjoy your Diet Coke Lorraine.

Buttons. 27-02-2018 06:35 PM

I'm proving my laziness in that I want another green tea but kitchen=effort so instead I'm going for the cordial next to the sofa :P

Buttons. 27-02-2018 06:35 PM

Glad you survived Eska!

Sketchy 27-02-2018 06:38 PM

Hey Buttons. A green tea would be good, but cordial is good too.

Cacoethes 27-02-2018 06:39 PM

Glad you survived eska!
I don't think I would in those temperatures!!

Ewww green tea!

chinahorse 27-02-2018 06:51 PM

Agreed! Green tea is nasty :S Normal tea however, *sips 33rd cup of the day*

Jeremy (my plant) is dying :( he is only like half a week old! Send help!!

Cacoethes 27-02-2018 06:53 PM

Normal tea is awesome

Oh no! Poor Jeremy :(
I am ***** at gardening so I'm afraid I'll be no help!

Eska 27-02-2018 06:55 PM

I don’t drink tea...

Unfortunately I have no helpful advice Lillie because I am terrible with plants.

chinahorse 27-02-2018 06:59 PM

How do you get by without tea?! :O

Cacoethes 27-02-2018 07:01 PM

I am shocked!

Buttons. 27-02-2018 07:06 PM

Eska not liking tea is weird.

People in general green tea is awesome!! It's one of the few healthy things I would have by choice.

Poor Jeremy :( The plant I gave my support worker called Maureen also perished not long ago.

Cacoethes 27-02-2018 07:09 PM

I actually used to like green tea.
Not anymore though!

I don't keep plants.
I did have a nice orchid when I was in the medium secure unit though and I managed not to kill it somehow!
Oh and a cactus!

Buttons. 27-02-2018 07:20 PM

Orchid sounds cool.

Cacoethes 27-02-2018 07:23 PM

They are pretty!!
Maybe I should get some sort of house plant...

zombiehunter 27-02-2018 07:25 PM

I have Chinese :-D

Buttons. 27-02-2018 07:29 PM

^ Jealous!! What did you choose?

nonperson 27-02-2018 07:29 PM

Plant conversation, yay!

I have a million orchids and cacti and lots of houseplants. =D

zombiehunter 27-02-2018 07:30 PM

*presses buttons*

I have mixed meat satay and fried rice washing it down with a nice cold beer :-D

Sketchy 27-02-2018 07:33 PM

Hey Nonperson. Hey zombie.

zombiehunter 27-02-2018 07:34 PM

hi sketchbook :-D

Sketchy 27-02-2018 07:36 PM

I’m still freeeeeeeeezing. Got the heating and fire on. Hope to heat up soon.

chinahorse 27-02-2018 07:37 PM

NP if you tell me how to revive Jeremy Ill be forever greatful!
I'd love an orchid but I'm 99% sure I'd murder that very quickly :P

Enjoy the Chinese!

nonperson 27-02-2018 07:39 PM

What kind of plant is Jeremy?

Cacoethes 27-02-2018 07:40 PM

Sounds awesome zombie! Enjoy!

Its pizza night tonight :-D

Sounds like nonperson is the one to go to for plant advice!

Buttons. 27-02-2018 07:41 PM

My favourite plant was my first bonsai, lasted ages. Had a nice amaryllis at one point as well.

Buttons. 27-02-2018 07:41 PM

Yay pizza night! I gave in and had one on Sunday-was nommy.

nonperson 27-02-2018 07:41 PM

I didn't say any of my plants were looking particularly good though, hah. ;-)

zombiehunter 27-02-2018 07:42 PM


chinahorse 27-02-2018 07:48 PM

Jeremy is a pencil grass. He is all droopy and floppy :(

nonperson 27-02-2018 07:53 PM

Oh poor Jeremy. =( I've never grown a pencil grass. Is it like a succulent plant or literally like grass?

chinahorse 27-02-2018 07:54 PM

Well Im gunna say just grass as my teeny tiny succulent (Sydney) looks VERY different.
