Dublin. It takes about 3 hours so still on the train.

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 01:55 PM

That's a long journey!
I've always wanted to go to Dublin. I'm half Irish but never been to Ireland!

Sketchy 09-05-2017 02:03 PM

I have a rubber duck collection in my bathroom. A few little ones and lots of bigger ones, including a pirate ducky and a princess ducky.

Shy_Bambi 09-05-2017 02:04 PM

Good afternoon everyone!!
Wow Ireland, someone my mum knows who lives there sends me pictures on whatsapp, its so beautiful over there!!

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 02:12 PM

I have a black duck with skulls on it (given to me many years ago!) As well as a few regular yellow ducks in various sizes!

Hi Rebecca!
How are you?
Ireland does look lovely!

Shy_Bambi 09-05-2017 02:21 PM

We have 2 rubber duckies in our bathroom, both with the Union Jack on them. Ducks are cute!

I'm okay. Im on a 3 day diet and its really tough, so badly want something warm to eat as its quite cold here!

How are you?

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 02:25 PM

That sounds annoying! When will you be able to eat warm food again?
It's cold here too.

I'm ok thanks. :)

Shy_Bambi 09-05-2017 02:31 PM

Thats good to hear. Up to anything fun today?

I can eat something warm in 3 days time. I have to drink only water too but I had a sneaky drink of Pepsi zero a moment ago oops lol

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 02:38 PM

Not really. GP appointment later then asda then slimming world!

That sounds tough! Why do you have to do it, if you don't mind me asking?

Shy_Bambi 09-05-2017 03:03 PM

Sounds like a packed day to me! How often do you go to slimming world?

I'm doing it because I need to lose weight pretty much lol! There aren't any clubs near where I live so I'm trying to find a way that works for me and this is the first diet I'm trying. My mum has done it before and it worked for her!

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 03:06 PM

I go to slimming world once a week.

You can register to do slimming world online. I'm not sure how it works because I haven't done it but I know you get access to all the recipes and stuff and it does really work for some! Maybe that's worth looking into ?
I have lost quite a bit following slimming world

Shy_Bambi 09-05-2017 03:11 PM

Oh I didn;t know that!! I just now looked it up, it looks good. I'm going out in a bit but when I get back I'll look into it more, thank you!

I use the MyFitnessPal app on my phone to make sure I don't go over a daily calorie limit, thats quiet a good app.

Congrats on your weight loss!! :D

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 03:12 PM

It's worth a shot!
And there are a TON of success stories about which really motivate me.
And some of the recipes are sooo good!

Thanks! :)

Shy_Bambi 09-05-2017 03:16 PM

Success stories and pictures are amazing!

I'm going to start getting ready now. The sun has suddenly come out, so now I'm not sure if it's going to be warm or stay chilly. Typical british weather lol! It was nice talking to you, byeeeee!!

Wonderland. 09-05-2017 03:17 PM

There are loads of SW blogs with recipes with syn values.

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 03:18 PM

See you later Rebecca!

Yeah SW is everywhere these days!

Sketchy 09-05-2017 04:25 PM

Anyone up to much? I'm having a lazy day. I did go out to the shop though.

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 04:34 PM

Hi Lorraine!
Just got back from GP and asda

Sketchy 09-05-2017 04:37 PM

Hope your appointment went ok.

Did you get anything nice from Asda?

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 04:43 PM

It was fine thanks. Knee is playing up so got to go for an x ray tomorrow. Fun fun!

Yep I got pizza and a chocolate bar as well as my usual shopping.
I forgot jelly though :(

Sketchy 09-05-2017 04:47 PM

I hope you get your knee sorted.

Oh that's right, it's pizza night. I'm jealous.

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 04:54 PM

Thanks. It should be fine. Will probs have to go back to physio though .

Yep! I love pizza night!
Have you got anything planned for dinner?

Sketchy 09-05-2017 04:57 PM

I have no idea what to make. Feeling unmotivated so will have to be something easy.

I think I need a nap. I'm so tired.

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 05:04 PM

You should nap if you feel tired. You must need the extra sleep!

Buttons. 09-05-2017 05:25 PM

Hope X ray etc goes okay with your knee Beckie and enjoy your pizza!

I second what Beckie said Lorraine a nap could do you good.

I'm definitely in hiding and comfort eating mode feel a bit ****. On the plus side my Such Fun Miranda Hart book came, and I have signed up to try and enrol on a counselling course that starts in September at my nearest college-scary but shows progress.

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 05:36 PM

Thanks Katy!!

That sounds awesome! I know it's scary bit you are doing awesomely and I'm so proud of you!

Wonderland. 09-05-2017 06:18 PM

Sounds super interesting Katy! Definitely definitely progress indeed :-)

Also Miranda is AWESOME!

Hope you knee turns out to be okay Beckie! Go easy on it!

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 06:21 PM

Thanks amy!

What are you up to?

Wonderland. 09-05-2017 06:50 PM

I'm just having my tea whilst watching BBT.

How about you?

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 06:52 PM

Cool :)

I'm watching criminal minds while waiting for slimming world time (and pizza time) :p

Wonderland. 09-05-2017 06:54 PM

Good luck for SW hope it goes well, and yay for pizza!

Have you ventured onto a flavour other than ham and pineapple yet?

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 06:56 PM

Thank you!

I have not! I keep meaning to but always end up going back to the ham and pineapple.
Might get pepperoni next week

Wonderland. 09-05-2017 06:57 PM

You could get a base and add your own toppings. Go wild!

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 06:59 PM

Oooo I hadn't thought of That!! What a great idea!

Wonderland. 09-05-2017 07:09 PM

We used to do that as kids when we didn't have time to make dough, or use the thicker wraps like the warbutons ones.

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 07:15 PM

Good plan!
Will defo be doing that next week!

Sketchy 09-05-2017 08:43 PM

I needed that nap. I'll probably end up staying up late now, but I can get stay in bed longer tomorrow morning. I'll be going out in the evening. Meeting my friend in the pub for dinner. I hope it's beer garden weather.

How is everyone?

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 08:45 PM

Hey Lorraine. Glad you had a good nap.
Tomorrow sounds good!

Sketchy 09-05-2017 08:55 PM

I'm looking forward to it. I have the usual anxiety because it means going in town, but I am determined to enjoy it.

Did you enjoy your pizza?

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 08:57 PM

I can understand the anxiety. You do so well with going out! I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself.

I did thank you! It was very yummy!

Sketchy 09-05-2017 09:03 PM


Do you have anything planned for the week? I'm also going out on Thursday. I'm going on a long walk with my sister. We're going to a park that is much further away than the other ones, but has a gallery and glasshouse with cafe in it. It's also very close to a pub with a beer garden. :)

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 09:10 PM

I don't have much planned.
Need to sort out when I'm getting my washing back because I have to go to the hospital for my x ray which will take up most of the day.
College and clubbercise on Thursday. Zumba on Friday.

That sounds awesome! I wish we had stuff like that here!

Sketchy 09-05-2017 09:17 PM

Sounds like you have a busy week and you do enjoy your clubbercise which is good. I hope your X-ray goes ok and you aren't waiting around much.

I think I'll curl in bed and watch Netflix. Again, haha. That's all I spend my evenings doing. I should be finishing paintings and working on my writing and other art, but I'm too lazy at the moment.

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 09:21 PM

Thanks :)

Nothing wrong with having lazy days once in a while. And it seems like you've been getting out lots recently so that's good :)

Sketchy 09-05-2017 09:22 PM

That's true. Thanks Beckie. :)

Cacoethes 09-05-2017 09:29 PM

I am very cold so I'm going up to hide under my duvet and my electric blanket should have warmed up nicely by now!
I don't use my phone in bed because of sleep hygiene. It has honestly helped so much not using electronics when in bed!
Anyway! Night night all!

[Luna] 10-05-2017 09:23 AM

Morning guys, how's everyone?

Cacoethes 10-05-2017 10:13 AM

I'm ok. How are you?

Buttons. 10-05-2017 12:03 PM

Morning/afternoon all!

Shy_Bambi 10-05-2017 12:09 PM

Good afternoon everyone! It's quite sunny today!
