True, true!

Glad you enjoyed your driving lesson :)

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 03:52 PM

Thanks :)
Booked my test for the 5th September so its all feeling very real!!

You up to much this afternoon Katy?

Buttons. 25-07-2017 03:55 PM

That's awesome!

Try not to go out and buy alcohol basically.

Sketchy 25-07-2017 03:56 PM

Good afternoon all.

I'm in costa in town. I'm meeting my writing group in a couple of hours. I had an appointment and wasn't worth going home first, so I have a lot of time on my hands. Thankfully I have my sketchbooks. I might go the art shop too and look at all the pretty supplies!

What are you guys up to?

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 03:57 PM

Have you got any distraction-y stuff you can do Katy?
Watch a film? Play with the dog? Read a book?
And talk to us of course!

How was the appointment Lorraine?
Sounds like a good plan!

Sketchy 25-07-2017 04:00 PM

*hugs Katy *. Keep talking to us. We are here for you.

Appointment went ok. Glad it's over though. I'm rewarding myself an iced caramel latte and sketching away.

Buttons. 25-07-2017 04:03 PM

Writing group sounds fun

I've stuck Friends on and am watching the dog be her weird and wonderful self. Can't really concentrate very well.

Sketchy 25-07-2017 04:06 PM

Friends is always good. And your dog will be a good distraction. Try take it easy and keep trying distractions. You can get through this.

Writing group is fun. I missed it last month, so I'm looking forward to it.

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 04:10 PM

At least Friends is one of those things you don't have to concentrate very much with.
Hope you start to feel better soon <3

Hope you enjoy it Lorraine!

Sketchy 25-07-2017 04:12 PM

Beckie it's good you've planned driving test. You'll be on the roads in no time. My dad bought his first car yesterday at the age of 62. He's been sending so many photos of it and planning journeys.

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 04:15 PM

Thanks :)

Aww bless your dad! It is very exciting!!

Sketchy 25-07-2017 04:19 PM

He's retired, so he's able to go on lots of journeys.

I've never had lessons. I don't think I would be confident enough.

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 04:23 PM

That must be great for him :)

Driving is scary at first and I was a very over cautious for the first few weeks but you do get more confident as you go along!
But if you live somewhere with good public transport i suppose its not such an essential thing

Sketchy 25-07-2017 04:25 PM

Yeh I'm really lucky where I live. So many buses and trains to choose from.

Urgh, my knee is hurting after my spectacular fall. Stupid clumsiness.

I'm definitely going into the art shop. I might treat myself to pastels or new pencils.

not_so_insig 25-07-2017 04:25 PM

Sorry I fell asleep. Been as I had to get up early and didn't sleep last night it was needed. Internment went as well as can be expected. I am not so good.

Sketchy 25-07-2017 04:26 PM

I'm sorry things are so difficult just now Dawn. I hope your sleep helped. Maybe take it easy for the rest of the day.

Shy_Bambi 25-07-2017 04:29 PM

I hope you feel better soon Katy! *hugs*
What are you drawing Lorraine?
I'm at the bus stop waiting to go asda for cat food

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 04:29 PM

Treating yourself at the art shop is a good idea!
And make sure to rest that knee up!!

Sorry you're not feeling great Dawn.

Sketchy 25-07-2017 04:31 PM

I'm drawing wind turbines and landscapes.

I'm going to rest my knee tomorrow. It was probably a bad idea coming out today, but I had to anyway for my appointment.

Shy_Bambi 25-07-2017 04:32 PM

Oh I love landscape pictures! You can just get lost in them. I bet it looks awesome.

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 04:33 PM

Sounds cool. I like wind turbines. There's a cluster.of them near where i live. I find them quite relaxing to watch them turn!

Shy_Bambi 25-07-2017 04:38 PM

I've only ever seen 1 wind turbine before and it was in the sea so I couldn't see it that well. But I know HUGE!

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 04:39 PM

Yep they are enourmous!!

not_so_insig 25-07-2017 04:41 PM

Thanks all. When I used to paint I did mainly landscapes.

Sketchy 25-07-2017 04:51 PM

They are huge. There's a massive wind park that I go to and the turbines are huge and kind of eerie.

Maybe you could start painting again Dawn.

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 05:17 PM

They are quite eerie actually!

Im counting down the hours until pizza time!!

Shy_Bambi 25-07-2017 05:30 PM

Oh pizza!! I have a pizza at home, I'm craving it now xD what pizza will you have?

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 05:32 PM

Its a ham and pineapple pizza!
Roughly 2 hours to go.
Time is going so slowly!!

Sketchy 25-07-2017 05:34 PM

Ooh pizza night. Awesome!

I bought new pencils and a square papered notebook. I'm now in the coffee shop where I meet my friends. I'll just sketch until they get here at 6pm.

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 05:43 PM

Yay for new pencils and notebook!!
I hope you have a good time

Sketchy 25-07-2017 05:44 PM

Thanks Beckie.

Shy_Bambi 25-07-2017 05:48 PM

Oh new stationary is like the best thing ever. Love getting new pens and stuff!!

I have a cheese pizza at home. I don't eat cheese (it triggers auras) but on pizza it's fine for some reason!

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 05:51 PM

Thats very strange Rebecca!
Glad you can eat it on pizza though. That would suck if you couldn't!!

Shy_Bambi 25-07-2017 05:55 PM

It sure would, since like 99% of pizza has cheese!!

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 05:56 PM

I love cheese. I would not be able to get through life without cheese!!

Buttons. 25-07-2017 06:48 PM

Cheese is life! As is pizza!

I'm so old I actually had to Google what QFT stands for xD

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 07:12 PM

Haha!! Don't worry, i have to google a lot of these things too!!

Buttons. 25-07-2017 07:45 PM

So do I, don't worry, we're all old here :P

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 07:48 PM

Pizza in oven!! piiiizzzaaaaa! :hop:

Buttons. 25-07-2017 07:51 PM

Jammy git :P

Shy_Bambi 25-07-2017 07:57 PM

My pizza is ready now, eating whilst watching Holby!!!!

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 07:59 PM

Pizza and holby is a good combo!
I also have m&ms!

Sketchy 25-07-2017 08:50 PM

Hope you guys enjoyed your pizza.

I'm on train home from writing group. When I get home I'm going to change my bed linen then go for a shower. Fresh pyjamas and fresh bed linen is the best.

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 08:54 PM

Pizza was awesome!

You're right Lorraine, fresh bed linen and fresh PJs after a shower is the best feeling!!

Shy_Bambi 25-07-2017 08:59 PM

Omg M&Ms!!!! *envious* what ones are they?

Fresh bedding and pajama are the best!

I was so hoping Dom and Lofty had a thing!!

Cacoethes 25-07-2017 09:04 PM

The crispy m&ms!

Dom and Lofty would be so sweet together!!

not_so_insig 25-07-2017 09:08 PM

I have decided that I am going to have a Domino's tomorrow as all this talk of pizza has made me want one.

Buttons. 25-07-2017 09:20 PM

What do you like on your pizza Dawn?
