I can't drink really cold drinks, it makes my throat hurt. Water straight from the tap is perfect! =P

Eska 19-05-2018 09:41 PM

I basically only drink water and juice/smoothies. Occasionally a hot chocolate. I don't like fizzy drinks.

nonperson 19-05-2018 09:46 PM

I like your style, Eska. ;-)

chinahorse 19-05-2018 09:51 PM

I basically only don't like hot coffee and milk. Will have anything else so I sit on the fence!

I feel poorly. And I'm trying to decide if I should go to my cousins s wedding on a credit card or not go.

Cacoethes 19-05-2018 09:59 PM

I've not had a smoothie in ages!
I do like a smoothie.
And milkshakes!

Hmm that's tricky Lillie.

nonperson 19-05-2018 10:04 PM

How well do you know your cousin?

chinahorse 19-05-2018 10:34 PM

Really well. Grew up together. Went to visit her in 2016.

nonperson 19-05-2018 10:37 PM

Do you think she'd be upset then if you didn't go? Or would she understand cos of money stuff if you didn't?

Pomegranate 19-05-2018 10:51 PM

Do you want to go?

chinahorse 19-05-2018 10:53 PM

I've already told her it isn't looking likely I'll make it and she understands and is fine about it. But I do really want to go.

nonperson 19-05-2018 10:54 PM

Aw =/ It's good she understands though! when do you need to decide?

chinahorse 19-05-2018 11:00 PM

Soon because I need to book holiday off work, book flights and transport and a hotel.

nonperson 19-05-2018 11:02 PM

Eek. Is it abroad?

chinahorse 19-05-2018 11:03 PM


nonperson 19-05-2018 11:11 PM

Oooh. She lives all the way over there?! That's such a shame if you know each other so well.

If you absolutely think you'd be able to pay back the credit card, I'd say it would be worth going!

chinahorse 19-05-2018 11:18 PM

I don't know enough about credit cards and haven't done a proper budget for my new job to know.

nonperson 19-05-2018 11:19 PM

I always pay mine back every month so it's not a problem but gives me a good credit rating. If you want to pay back over several months you'd need to choose one with a low interest rate.

chinahorse 19-05-2018 11:24 PM

But I have minimal credit rating so wouldn't be able to get a low interest one would I? And how'd I know what the repayment was?

nonperson 19-05-2018 11:35 PM

Uhm.... I dunno! The minimum repayments would be stated when you signed up, like for example mine is 25 a month.

chinahorse 20-05-2018 10:42 AM

Morning guys :)

Eska 20-05-2018 11:04 AM

Morning Lillie! How are you?

I'm waiting for the train to work... It's a super lovely day too.

nonperson 20-05-2018 11:48 AM

Morning all.

I'm very sore and stiff. =(

Pomegranate 20-05-2018 12:58 PM


What’s everyone upto today?

nonperson 20-05-2018 01:37 PM

Hi. =)

I've just got the usual chores and food shopping to do because all the roads are open again today.

How about you?

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 01:40 PM

Hello peeps

nonperson 20-05-2018 01:44 PM

Hi Beckie. How's things? =)

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 02:48 PM

Hi nonperson!

Things are fine!
I'm tired for some reason even though I only got up at 12

How are you?

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 03:08 PM

Hello! I'm tired too and also got up late!

I am trying to motivate myself to go for a run but it's a lot of effort!

What are you all up to today?

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 03:17 PM

Hey Hannah!
Must be that Sunday feeling!

That is a lot of effort.
I went to asda and was just like, ugh!
This heat!

nonperson 20-05-2018 03:23 PM

I woke up at 7:15 but managed to go back to bed again until 10. First lie in for aaaages. Still tired though.

Just waiting for laundry to finish and then I'm braving the supermarket. =/

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 03:35 PM

7:15 is far too early!!

Good luck with the supermarket!
Asda was rather busy today.

I just got a message from DVLA saying they've been trying to contact me about a vehicle tax refund of 48. I don't have a car, have never had a car so it's obviously a mistake.
So tempted to take the money though, seeing as I'm on the verge of using a food bank again XD
But I'd probably end up in trouble if I did that.

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 03:50 PM

Are you sure it's genuine Beckie? If it is, I really wouldn't recommend trying to take it!

Hope the supermarket goes okay NP!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 03:55 PM

Not sure.
It takes me to the gov website but could still be dodgy!
And I havent had any letters from the DVLA so :ermm:
I never answer my phone for unknown numbers but I'm sure they would have left a message if it was true

chinahorse 20-05-2018 04:03 PM

Definitely doesn't sound legit beckie.

I'm contemplating going for a nap. I barely slept last night and still don't feel good. And walking round the shops has worn me out!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 04:07 PM

Yes, the more I think about it the more it sounds dodgy!

Nap sounds good Lillie!
Especially if you didn't sleep well and don't feel great

chinahorse 20-05-2018 04:13 PM

Yeah. I kept waking myself up coughing or from lack of air. Really need to do some of my coursework forms for work though. That's if I make it in, still can barely talk.

What're you guys up to?

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 04:47 PM

That sounds awful
Definitely get some rest!

Im watching Criminal minds and attempting essay

nonperson 20-05-2018 05:10 PM

Supermarket was uneventful which was good! Managed to speak to the pharmacist and get some giant dressings for my elbow so I can cover up at work tomorrow.

Having some chill time now and pondering making jelly with fruit in it. =P

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 05:16 PM

That sounds nice NP, make some for me :P

I hope you can get some rest Lillie and feel better soon!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 05:18 PM

That sounds yummy np!
And chill time is good!

I'm hungry.
Roll on dinner time!

nonperson 20-05-2018 05:22 PM

There will be plenty of jelly leftover for anyone who wants some!

What's for dinner, Beckie? Or is it too early to talk about that yet...

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 05:24 PM

Yay jelly!!

I'm not sure yet.
I haven't got a great deal in!
Should be able to find something!

nonperson 20-05-2018 05:26 PM

Pesto pasta?

Serendipity. 20-05-2018 05:29 PM

Hope you find something nice Beckie!

I'll be having a pesto, chicken, mozzarella and avocado quesadilla when I get around to it!

nonperson 20-05-2018 05:32 PM

Wow, sounds nice!

I've never tried avocado... I know it's meant to be a bit of a super food.

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 05:37 PM

I have no pesto or pasta :(
And asda is closed now
I think I might still have an emergency ready meal in the freezer.

That sounds delicious Hannah!

I love avocado!!!

I've just changed my bedsheets.
And washing is on.
Looking forward to having a shower and having freshly washed PJs and fresh sheets!!

nonperson 20-05-2018 06:15 PM

Emergency ready meal sounds good. =P

I've suddenly become really sleepy... Wondering if I should have a nap, but I should probably be doing stuff like making jelly or hoovering or fishing the slime out of the pond!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 06:17 PM

Ew slime!!!
I can't nap this late because it means I won't sleep at night, so bear that in mind!
Might be different for you though!

I have an emergency ready meal! :-D

nonperson 20-05-2018 06:21 PM

Eww slime indeed. I think that job can wait. =P

Yeah, if I nap now I'll just end up going to bed later tonight... but that's sort of normal anyway so I don;t think it'll make much difference.

I'm going to make jelly, put The Little Mermaid bluray on and then see what happens nap-wise. =)

Enjoy your ready meal!

Cacoethes 20-05-2018 06:22 PM

That sounds like a good plan!
