Its not been fantastic but the tutors have been brilliant.
Waiting for bus home now.
Im so tired!

Are you looking forward to it?

Sketchy 31-10-2017 04:27 PM

Sorry it’s not been fantastic, but glad the tutors have been great.

I’ve decided not to go. I’m just not feeling up to it at all.

not_so_insig 31-10-2017 05:38 PM

My mum came to help me unpack the bookcase. Turns out it needed some self assembly so my dad had to come. It is now up and running.

I have my ps3 working. It turned out to be user error why it wasn't working before. I have been playing Transport Tycoon. I am thinking of going to the cex shop and game shop in town tomorrow to get some new games. Via caffe nero of course.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 05:44 PM

Thanks Lorraine

Thats fair enough.
Hope you are looking after yourself lorraine!

Glad your book shelf is sorted Dawn

Sketchy 31-10-2017 05:47 PM

Thanks Beckie.

Dawn that sounds like a good plan.

not_so_insig 31-10-2017 05:51 PM

I forgot to say that the wind has gone. So I can watch tv through the dish. I forgot to say Beckie did you know that a new series of 999 whats your emergency has started? There was a new episode last night.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 05:58 PM

I didnt know that Dawn!
Thanks for letting me know.
I'll have to catch up with that!

not_so_insig 31-10-2017 06:05 PM

I know that you like it Beckie.

I am debating whether to order Dominos.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 06:10 PM

Thanks :)

Do it Dawn!
Pizza is always a good idea

not_so_insig 31-10-2017 06:17 PM

I am definitely not opening my door to anyone else. Trick or treaters don't usually bother with me but I am not risking it.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 06:23 PM

I just had a delivery guy bang on my door and asked me to take a parcel for another house.
I never do because it makes me really anxious having other people's mail and means that I'll be anxious waiting for someone to come and pick it up at any moment!
He got a bit shirty with me but meh. Not my problem!

not_so_insig 31-10-2017 06:35 PM

I once refused to take a parcel for across the road. The one time I did the person it was for was extremely hard to get hold of and when they did they weren't very grateful. Like I know how hard it is to get hold of couriers.

I have a note on the door on who to deliver parcels to if no answer but I do the same for them and also I say thanks. If I am baking cakes I give them some. Manners cost nothing especially if someone is doing you a favour.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 06:45 PM

If i was friendly with my neighbours then I would.
But everyone keeps themselves to themselves so I dont really know them.

not_so_insig 31-10-2017 06:49 PM

Fair enough.

I have posted a photo of the bookcase in the picture board.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 06:52 PM

Looks good!

I just had Skittles for the first time in years.
Forgot how good they are!

Sketchy 31-10-2017 07:16 PM

I could really go some sweets.

I have pasta bake in the oven.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 07:29 PM

I got some for potential trick or treaters.
There will be loads left though!

Yum pasta bake!
I have a pizza.

Sketchy 31-10-2017 07:37 PM

That’s right it’s pizza night.

I never get any trick or treaters. Still wish I had sweets though. I have grapes for later.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 07:41 PM

It is!
Time is dragging though!

Im sure all the sweets will be on special offer tomorrow!

Sketchy 31-10-2017 07:44 PM

That’s true. I’ll probably buy some to take to my sister’s on Friday.

It won’t be long until you are enjoying your pizza. My pasta bake should be ready in ten minutes.

Cacoethes 31-10-2017 07:49 PM

Good plan!

Yep! I'm looking forward to it as always!
I was going to get fish and chips but i cant be bothered to go into town again.
And its more expensive than my pizza!

Sketchy 01-11-2017 10:10 AM

Good morning all.

Buttons. 01-11-2017 10:42 AM

Morning lovely, how are you?

I'm left with loads of chocolate eyeballs as a result of missing the door at Halloween- don't quite know what to do with them now :P I kind of want to put some through the children owning (:P) households to say thankyou for their children being so understand and respectful around the wheelchair-automatically stopping games so I can get past etc-but I don't think chocolate decorated as an eyeball would be the best idea-seems more like a weird threat than a thankyou :P

Sketchy 01-11-2017 10:49 AM

I’m sure the kids would love it.

I didn’t get any trick or treaters, but then I never do.

not_so_insig 01-11-2017 10:54 AM

Chocolate is chocolate to a kid.

I had no trick or treaters thankfully. Mainly because our block is full of elderly people and me who is vulnerable that nobody tends to answer their doorbells that they don't bother coming here. Besides no kiddies live in my block of flats. If anyone rang the bell yesterday I would have ignored it.

Sketchy 01-11-2017 11:02 AM

Hi Dawn.

There aren’t many kids in my area too.

What’s everyone doing today? I’m going to relax a while longer, then get ready to go to either the local shop or into town. I’ll see how I feel.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 11:53 AM

I had no trick or treaters either.
More sweets for me :p

I have a CC appointment. Thats about it.
Need to start on English assignment though.
Lets hope my laptop will cooperate!

not_so_insig 01-11-2017 12:09 PM

I am going out today. Not sure whether to go to the park at the bottom of the road or to town. I am making it my goal to go out today.

[Luna] 01-11-2017 12:51 PM

We had quite a few trick or treaters. I was shocked as our house is quite hidden away.

Like you Dawn, I'm making it my goal to get out of the house today. Unfortunately it's been a massive effort just to get out of bed.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 01:08 PM

Nice to see you Luna!

I am also making it my goal to get out.
Getting off the sofa is going to be difficult!

[Luna] 01-11-2017 01:10 PM

Thanks Beckie, I've just stuck the heating on. Hopefully being less cold will make me want to change out of my PJs.

How are you today?

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 01:21 PM

That will definitely help!
So much harder to get up and dressed when its cold!
Im still refusing to put the heating on.

Im ok thanks.
Very tired though!

[Luna] 01-11-2017 01:26 PM

I'm such a wimp when it comes to the cold (mind you I'm a wimp when it comes to heat too - I'm just not designed for weather :P)

Sorry you're tired. Did you not sleep well?

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 01:35 PM

Haha!
I much prefer cold to heat

I slept fine.
I think it's because I have an early start the last couple of days.
Was nearly falling asleep on the bus yesterday!

[Luna] 01-11-2017 01:37 PM

Ah right, no wonder you're tired.
I've fallen asleep on the bus before, luckily have managed to wake up before my stop.

I also prefer cold to heat. Nicer to put more clothes on than take them off.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 01:41 PM

I've never fallen asleep on public transport (so far anyway!)

Definitely! Only so many layers you can take off without being arrested....

[Luna] 01-11-2017 01:47 PM

Haha. I've fallen asleep on a bus and a train. I've also fallen asleep on the Northern line and had a member of staff wake me up when I got to the end of the line.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 01:50 PM

That must have been really annoying!!
Luckily my bus to college is very near the end of the line. So if I fell asleep and got to the end, it would only be a 10 min walk to college.
And the bus back home is also the end of the line so I'm quite lucky!

[Luna] 01-11-2017 01:52 PM

I was actually aiming for the end of the line thankfully but was so embarrassed that someone had to come wake me up.

Sketchy 01-11-2017 01:53 PM

I’ve fallen asleep on buses and trains. Thankfully I’ve woken up in time to get off.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 01:56 PM

Ah that's good Luna!
I would be embarassed too though!
I fell asleep on a night shift once. That was embarassing. Tbf, I had done an early shift then slept and came back for the night shift. Which probably wasn't smart!

Thats lucky Lorraine!

[Luna] 01-11-2017 02:01 PM

Wow, yeah, no wonder you fell asleep!

Right, I'm now dressed and ready to go so I'm going to head out.
Chat to you guys later xxx

Sketchy 01-11-2017 02:03 PM

Catch you later Luna.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 02:04 PM

See you later Luna!

not_so_insig 01-11-2017 03:17 PM

I am in caffe nero. So far it's been disappointing.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 03:25 PM

Im not a fan of caffe nero.

not_so_insig 01-11-2017 03:30 PM

Caffe nero is ok except for some screaming kid and another running about. What I meant that is town is disappointing. Went to the cex shop and found nothing that takes my fancy. Went to the market to find out that it's shut on a Wednesday. Just gotta go to game once I have finished my latte.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 03:31 PM

Kids can be annoying.

CEX can be a bit hit and miss

Sketchy 01-11-2017 04:34 PM

That’s a shame about town Dawn. I’ve decided to go into town tomorrow. I want to get more buttons. And it means I get to look at all the fabrics too. They sometimes do good sales on remnants of fabric that’s the perfect size for my sewing.

I hope you enjoyed your coffee.

Cacoethes 01-11-2017 04:57 PM

That sounds like a good plan Lorraine.

Ive got college tomorrow.
