Ha ha middle to upper I would say :P then again I grew up in a semi detatched house which was very posh at the time so I can't talk. We even had a spare room-big deal at that time (a.ka dad's 'study' irl where he kept all his videos and vinyl records and drove my mum insane :P) I'd say we were fairly safely in the middle class bracket somewhere. Not sure where I am now. Ha ha social workers can be freaks, I remember one of them saying to me they didn't 'feel I had a genuine Northern accent'...wtf I;ve lived North all my life.

Buttons. 22-12-2017 09:40 PM

Also I think you as a Southerner can testify (a couple of years later than that meeting but still) that I have a Northern accent :P

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 09:49 PM

GdMy familys new house is about a mile away from any other houses! And it backs onto the country park which is so nice! No spare bedroom though. Although they have a boot room, yes, a room specifically for boots, that is genuinley bigger than my living room. And a cinema room in the basement. And another room in the basement whcih is going to be a gym apparently.
You know what, I'm just gonna move back in with them because their house is actually gonna be awesome

Buttons. 22-12-2017 09:49 PM

Tbf though the social worker in question was when I was in the south so...not sure I'm asking the right person :P

Buttons. 22-12-2017 09:50 PM

They have a CINEMA ROOM? **** me that's insane.

Cacoethes 22-12-2017 09:56 PM

You definitely sound Northern Buttons!!!

Yeah. Its a rather large house!

Buttons. 22-12-2017 10:02 PM

Ha ha this was about 3 years ago think the social worker thought I was faking being Northern for some reason. Bizarre. She was wearing a pink Umbridge-esque jumper and wasn't the brightest penny so I might let her off :P

So when do we turn on your family with an army and take the house (I've been watching too much game of thrones) :P

Sketchy 22-12-2017 10:23 PM

Wow. That sounds like an impressive house!

nonperson 22-12-2017 10:50 PM

Evenin' all.

Sketchy 22-12-2017 10:51 PM

Evening Nonperson. How are you?

nonperson 22-12-2017 10:54 PM

I'm ok... Starting to get a bit anxious though cos I'm going away tomorrow and feel like there's still lots to pack/organise...

How're you doing?

Sketchy 22-12-2017 10:55 PM

Sorry you are feeling anxious. Maybe you can write a list. I find lists help.

I’m ok thanks.

nonperson 22-12-2017 10:58 PM

I love a good list. Made one already, I'm just hoping I didn't forget anything...

Buttons. 22-12-2017 10:59 PM

I'm sure you won't forget anything lovely x

Sketchy 22-12-2017 11:00 PM

I like making lists. Very helpful.

You up to much tomorrow? I’m having lunch with a friend then going to my sister’s.

nonperson 22-12-2017 11:09 PM

I'm on Christmas holibobs tomorrow. Heading down to Cornwall with my parents for five days. Never been away from home for Christmas before!

Sketchy 22-12-2017 11:12 PM

I hope you have fun there.

Sketchy 22-12-2017 11:12 PM

Buttons, what you up to tomorrow?

Buttons. 22-12-2017 11:37 PM

I have no idea, depends if support worker turns up or not and who it is. Hopefully taking dog to the normal park (where you have to keep your dog on a lead) but is still a decent walk and whatever else needs to be done. Might try washing my hair but although it sounds simple it's hard with limited mobility and no access to a bath tub. I'm basically washing my hair in a plastic sink basin thing and relying on a support worker to help me with the situation as I can't hold the plastic basin thing and shampoo and wash the shampoo out of my hair at the same time. So washing my hair is quite the event :P

Sketchy 22-12-2017 11:45 PM

That sounds really difficult. I hope you get help to do it.
The dog will enjoy a trip to the park. Have fun.

I’m off to bed now. I have a busy day tomorrow. Goodnight.

Buttons. 22-12-2017 11:51 PM

Thanks hope you sleep well xxx (llama face :P)

Sketchy 22-12-2017 11:55 PM

Hahaha. Sleep well. Xx

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 12:13 PM

Morning guys
Its Christmas eve eve!

one_step_closer 23-12-2017 12:54 PM

Is Lorraine the llama sender?!!!

Morning Beckie. Happy Christmas Eve Eve.

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 12:56 PM

Hi Lindsay!
How are you?

Got to brave asda in a bit :crazy:

chinahorse 23-12-2017 01:13 PM

Morning guys!

I feel you beckie, I need to go to sainsburys or tesco :/

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 01:56 PM

Hi Lillie! How are You?

Asda was pretty mental :/

one_step_closer 23-12-2017 02:46 PM

Hi Lillie! Hope your shopping trip goes ok.

Is that you able to avoid Asda for a while now Beckie?

I have to go to Tesco once my brother gives me a list of food and drink he likes.

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 02:48 PM

I'll be travelling up to my nan's tomorrow so I won't have to go for a few days!
Although I may pop in tomorrow to get some snacks for the journey.

Hope tesco isn't too busy!

one_step_closer 23-12-2017 03:50 PM

You'll have to buy ALL the snacks to justify waiting in a maybe long queue.

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 03:53 PM

Haha! I probably will tbh.
I'll be travelling with 2 of my brothers who are bascially bottomless pits when it comes to food!!

Buttons. 23-12-2017 03:58 PM

Oh hell don't remind me. Not looking forward to all the Christmas rigmarol (yes I am a scrooge :P)

Alright I'll put you out if your misery, yes yes she is.

Sorry everyone who has had to go to the shops today!

Bet you'll enjoy your time with your gran Beckie :)

I'm okay but bit annoyed that support worker didn't turn up today and the person who normally resolves this issue is in Australia so I can't exactly ask her for help. So a day trapped in the house it is! Luckily I have plenty of provisions and I can let the dog out for regular play sessions in the garden.

Hope everyone is doing okay :)

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 04:12 PM

Im actually so excited for Christmas and I dont know why because I haven't liked Christmas since I was like 10!
One year was actually the most depressing Christmas ever because I was alone and had tomato soup out of a jug for Christmas dinner :p
Even worse that the Christmas I spent on 1-1 obs with the happiest person on earth when I was 15 XD

That is unacceptable Buttons! They can't just not turn up!!! Defo need to complain

Buttons. 23-12-2017 04:24 PM

I'm glad you're excited Beckie <3 I've had some pretty grim Christmases as well so I understand. I think it's high time you deserve a happier Christmas :)

Turns out they can not turn up. My regular support worker told them in advance that she was taking today off to look after her daughter etc so they had plenty of time to arrange cover but ah well. I'm alright. I am continuing my game of thrones marathon and I have food and cigarettes so not a tragedy :P It just pisses me off a bit.

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 04:34 PM

Thanks Buttons <3

Its still unacceptable though!
Like, you have them for a reason!
GoT marathon sounds good though!

Buttons. 23-12-2017 04:48 PM

Yeah having someone help me get out of the door would have been in a win but worst things happen at sea :P

No problem :)

It's very foggy where I am just noticed it now when I went out for a cig, anyone else the same?

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 04:50 PM

Lets just hope they sort their sh*t out!!

Not foggy here, despite weather app on phone saying it was earlier!

Im watching the boy in the striped pyjamas and its weird seeing professor Lupin as a nazi

Buttons. 23-12-2017 05:07 PM

Lets hope ha ha.

Weather forecasts for Britain seem to always be inaccurate :P Unless you deliberately sent the fog up here with magic powers to offend us Northerners :P

Yeah I love that film but Lupin weirded me out too

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 05:09 PM

Totally didnt send the fog to you
*shifty eyes*

It is very strange!
I havbet watched it since it came out at the cinema

Buttons. 23-12-2017 05:23 PM

I know you did it you weather witch :P Southern weirdo :P

Yeah I only watched it earlier this year when it came on Netflix. Read the book ages ago though.Think it was one of the rare films where the film lives up to the book.

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 05:26 PM

I'm pretty sure it's only the gays that control the weather actually :p

It was a very good book!

Buttons. 23-12-2017 05:48 PM

a) you are completely right every gay person has this super power :P and b) I didn't know you could read :P

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 05:50 PM

I can read, I just choose not to :p

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 06:11 PM

I accidentally ordered pizza....

one_step_closer 23-12-2017 06:18 PM

What a terrible accident Beckie. Feel for you!

I'm such a Sherlock guessing that Lorraine was the llama sender. Well not really since there were very few options and she hinted!

Buttons, sorry you didn't get any support today. Not fair. Hope you're enjoying GoT. One of my previous support workers thought it was called Games of Throne.

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 06:21 PM

Thanks! :p
The app makes it so damn easy!!!

How are you Lindsay?

one_step_closer 23-12-2017 06:25 PM

Food ordering apps are a blessing and a curse. I had half a pizza for my dinner but it was one I had got from Tesco. Not been to Tesco today yet as I'm still waiting on my brother's list! Hoping he'll send me it before I leave to feed my friend's cat at 6 so I can do both things at once.

What are you going to be getting up to this evening apart from eating pizza?

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 06:27 PM

They are Indeed!

Hope you get the list soon!
Maybe give him a virtual prod to hurry up with the list!

Casualty is on tonight so will be watching that!

one_step_closer 23-12-2017 06:30 PM

I think he's at work right now but I text him early in the afternoon but at that point he was probably in bed. I might need to be brave and join the swarm of people in Tesco tomorrow.

Yay, Casualty! Missed it being on last week.

Cacoethes 23-12-2017 06:33 PM

Eeep its going to be so busy tomorrow!!

Me too!
Saturday just isn't Saturday without casualty!
