Racheal is a nice name too.

I think my name is old fashioned now. I'm not keen on it. Although my mum used to call me Lainey and I was called Lainey in an old job. My sister sometimes calls me it.

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 05:44 PM

I dont mind the name!

Ive had a lot of people mistakenly call me Rachel for some reason!

Lorraine is a nice name.
And Lainey is a really nice shortening of it

Sketchy 13-08-2017 05:47 PM

Thanks Beckie.

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 06:00 PM

Whats everyone up to?

Buttons. 13-08-2017 06:01 PM

I like the name Lorraine and the shortening Lainey.

Also like Beckie and Rebecca.

I ended up Katy because my parents couldn't agree on the spelling of Catherine/Kathryn. I quite like my name except I spend half my life trying to convince computer systems I exist because someone has misspelled it Katie.

Buttons. 13-08-2017 06:02 PM

I'm back watching Friends how about you?

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 06:09 PM

That must be annoying katy!

Im watching nurse jackie.
I should watch friends again.
Haven't seen it in ages!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 06:12 PM

I like the name Katy too.

That is a travesty :P

I'm also playing a game on Facebook called Trivial Crack and very nearly just said I'm doing crack :P which with my possibly misconstrued Coca cola addiction does not make me look good :P

Buttons. 13-08-2017 06:13 PM

Thanks Lorraine :)

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 06:20 PM

I used to play Quiz Up which was really cool.
Every subject you can think of, there's a quiz about it and you play against real people.
I always used to do the nursing ones.
I should download it again!

Buttons. 13-08-2017 06:21 PM

ooh link me if you find it please? sounds like a good game.

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 06:22 PM

Its an app! :)

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 06:25 PM

Just downloaded it again and there's a Friends bit as well. Might suit you!

Buttons. 13-08-2017 06:25 PM

will have a look :)

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 06:27 PM

You can level up as well.
Ive just logged into my old account and I'm an Orthopaedic surgeon :p

Buttons. 13-08-2017 06:29 PM

can't find the friends bit, having a meltdown :P

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 06:31 PM

It'll be there!
Unless I hallucinated it :p
There's game of thrones and harry potter too.
Its changed so much, i last played in 2015!

Buttons. 13-08-2017 06:40 PM

Ugh now can't figure out how to get off a stupid advert for final fantasy xv or some ****.

Am so rubbish at technology :P

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 06:46 PM

There weren't any ads when i used to play it.
I was really disappointed to see that they've allowed ads on there :(

Buttons. 13-08-2017 07:09 PM

Okay I am in shock. Home treatment team just rang me about some issues yesterday. They Actually rang back just over 24 hours later. What is this madness????? :P

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 07:11 PM

Omg!!!! :o
That is a moment in history!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 07:14 PM

I am also in shock! But that's good they rang back. I hope you get the help you need.

What's everyone doing tonight. I'm going to put the washing on and watch some Netflix. You know, just for a change, haha.

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 07:16 PM

Im watching nurse jackie still.
Very tired!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 07:23 PM

I've never watched that. I'm going to watch the night shift. It's supposed to be good.

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 07:29 PM

Ive heard good things about it!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 08:01 PM

What did you guys have for dinner? I had tofu sausages. They were yummy.

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 08:03 PM

I had a sausage sandwich with some mixed veg.
It was nice!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 08:04 PM


Cacoethes 13-08-2017 08:08 PM

Yep :)

Im tired but it feels too early to go to bed!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 08:10 PM

It won't be long until bed time. I'm tired too. I was up early because I could hear noises from upstairs. At first I thought it was my boiler and was convinced I was going to blow up. Stupid imagination!

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 08:13 PM

I get worried about weird noises like that too.
I have an active imagination! Lol

Sketchy 13-08-2017 08:15 PM

I'm a nightmare for letting my imagination run away with me.

Any plans for tomorrow? I have life drawing in the evening. I hope to get a good drawing session and update my blog soon. Feeling really creative just now.

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 08:37 PM


I have a driving lesson at 12.
Thats about it.
And asda of course!

Life drawing sounds brilliant!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 08:43 PM

Oh that's right. I forgot about your driving lesson. Hope it goes well.

Life drawing is great. It's in an old pub in the function room which is also a ballroom, so you can have a drink while you're drawing. I'm always grateful of the models. They have amazing confidence to be able to do that. I couldn't.

Serendipity. 13-08-2017 08:43 PM

Life drawing sounds fun. I wish I was artistic!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 08:45 PM

There's an art form for everyone Hannah. When I taught it I would try make sure everyone did something they were pleased with, no matter how much they protested at not being artistic. I'm very stubborn!

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 08:45 PM

Thanks Lorraine :)

That does sound fun! Always nice to be able to have a drink as well!

Hello Hannah!
Long time no see!

Sketchy 13-08-2017 08:50 PM

How are you doing Hannah?

Serendipity. 13-08-2017 08:51 PM

Haha, I need you to come and teach me Lorraine! I am quite crafty and I like to persuade clients at work to do crafts with me but I wish I could do actual art!

Hi Beckie! How's it going? I'm afraid I appear to have gone and got a life :P

Sketchy 13-08-2017 08:53 PM

Was it you that made the sloth key ring in the picture board? That was good.

Cacoethes 13-08-2017 08:56 PM

A life hannah?!?
How is a life more important than us?!

Buttons. 13-08-2017 09:32 PM

I also get anxious about odd noises no one is alone in that I think.

I also had sausages for tea :)

That sounds incredible with the ballroom Lorraine :)

I think my artistic talent is limited to very shoddy stick people and maybe the odd collage. Did do some okayish pictures replicating Marvel characters as a kid but I seem to have lost even that smigeon of talent. Love colouring books when I can find my pens though.

Sketchy 13-08-2017 09:39 PM

Maybe you just need practice with the marvel characters. Keep going with it. Colouring is good.

Serendipity. 13-08-2017 09:39 PM

Katy! How are you? I'm pretty sure I've seen pics of some collages you've done - not sure if I'm thinking of the right person but if I am I was very impressed by them!

Yes that was me Lorraine! I love doing stuff like that. I made a monkey one for my boss as she loves monkeys. I need to get back to my keyrings!

Haha, I do apologise Beckie, nothing could be more important than you!! :P

Sketchy 13-08-2017 09:42 PM

You are very good at stitching. It was nice and neat. I'd love to see more.

Buttons. 13-08-2017 09:59 PM

Think that might have been me Hannah.

Thanks Lorraine. I love how supportive you are towards everyone regarding artistic persuits :)

Sketchy 13-08-2017 10:09 PM

I just like seeing people be creative and what they can make. I used to work as an artist leading art workshops, so it's always been important to me to share creativity.
