I've just ordered a new printer.
It was in a sale so like 25 off!
Will be nice not having to print stuff off in the library all the time!

Sketchy 27-12-2017 03:04 PM

That’s excellent. That will be useful for your studies.

Sketchy 27-12-2017 03:16 PM

I’ve managed to finish my lunch. Kitty is having a sleep.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 04:11 PM

Very useful!

Glad you managed to eat your lunch eventually!

Im just back from asda

Sketchy 27-12-2017 04:45 PM

Did you get anything nice?

Molly is sound asleep.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 04:51 PM

I got a cheeky pizza!
And lots of fruit. I've eaten so much chocolate im really craving fruit now!!
Finally watching the christmas doctor who now!

You doing much today other than cat sitting?

Sketchy 27-12-2017 04:57 PM

Fruit sounds good. I might get some from the shop. I’ve been eating so much chocolate lately. I got lots of chocolates for Christmas.

Enjoy doctor who. It’s a good episode.

I’ll just stay here for another few hours then go home. I need to do some housework. I’m also going to go for a bubble bath tonight with all my nice new lush stuff I got.

Pizza sounds good!

one_step_closer 27-12-2017 05:15 PM


Are you going to eat your pizza tonight Beckie?

Hope you enjoy your bubble bath Lorraine. I went to spend a Lush gift voucher someone gave me but the shop was mobbed so I left quickly.

Buttons, sorry your support is being not very supportive.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 05:15 PM

Me too!

It was a good episode!
Can't wait for more

Lush stuff smells amazing!
Hope you enjoy it!

Yep I'll be having the pizza tonight!

How are you Lindsay?

one_step_closer 27-12-2017 05:21 PM

Hope your pizza is extra tasty!

I'm ok. Did manage to spend my Paperchase birthday 5 they give you on the rewards card thing. Took me a very long time to decide what to get though. I was going to just buy some thank you cards but I like to choose them depending on the person I'm giving them to and I don't need any right now. Ended up buying a water bottle thing but will probably put Pepsi Max in it instead of water!

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 05:27 PM


Paperchase is awesome!
So many lovely things!
If I had a water bottle then I'd totally fill it with coke zero instead of water!

Sketchy 27-12-2017 05:31 PM

I love paperchase. I can’t go in there without buying anything.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 05:34 PM

Thats why I have to avoid going in there!
There isn't one near me anyway

Sketchy 27-12-2017 05:39 PM

There’s a big one in town.

I might go home soon and have my bath.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 05:53 PM

A bath sounds nice!

My nanny just called to see if I'm feeling a bit lonely too.
She lives on her own as well and it turns out she was feeling the same way as me when all the family left!
Getting used to being alone again now though.
And tbh it is exhausting being around lots of people.

Sketchy 27-12-2017 05:57 PM

That’s good your nanny phoned you. It can feel lonely after Christmas.

I feel a bit lonely too now, but probably needing alone time too. There’s no pleasing me!

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 06:02 PM

I know exactly what you mean! Lol!

Sketchy 27-12-2017 07:32 PM

I’m back home. Had a shower instead of a bath, but I used my lush shower gel.

It’s so cold and icy here. I’ve put the heating on.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 07:41 PM

Lush shower gel sounds good!

Its a bit cold here.
There were tiny bits of snow about this morning.

Sketchy 27-12-2017 07:48 PM

I’d love it if there was thick snow. I love wrapping up and walking in snow.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 07:50 PM

Me too.
As long as I don't have anywhere on public transport!

Sketchy 27-12-2017 07:52 PM

That’s true. The trains and buses aren’t reliable in bad snow.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 08:20 PM

Its annoying.
What are you up to this evening?

Sketchy 27-12-2017 08:24 PM

I might do a bit of tidying. I’m doing washings just now. And I’ll probably relax and eat more chocolates! I got so much chocolate for Christmas.

What are you going to do?

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 08:28 PM

Sounds productive!!

I should probably do some tidying too but meh.
Been feeling very lazy lately!

one_step_closer 27-12-2017 08:31 PM

Lazy is ok at this time of the year, you should use that excuse while it lasts!

Sketchy 27-12-2017 08:32 PM

Sometimes you need to be lazy and that’s ok.

Cacoethes 27-12-2017 08:34 PM

Good point Lindsay.
It is a lazy time of year!
Thanks Lorraine :)
Im gonna try and get some stuff done tomorrow.

not_so_insig 27-12-2017 08:38 PM

Hey there!

Sketchy 27-12-2017 08:39 PM

I’m going shopping tomorrow. I need to by hair dye to do my roots. I might go for a coffee too.

Sketchy 27-12-2017 08:40 PM

Hey Dawn.

not_so_insig 27-12-2017 08:43 PM

Hi Lorraine.

I haven't been up to much today. It was nearly 1 pm when I woke up.

Sketchy 27-12-2017 08:46 PM

You must have needed the sleep. Do you feel well rested for it?

not_so_insig 27-12-2017 08:56 PM

No because I fell asleep since. I am probably sleeping tons because I am taking prn at night.

Sketchy 27-12-2017 08:58 PM

I hope you are ok.

Buttons. 27-12-2017 10:05 PM

Hope you are okay Dawn.

I'm currently watching Miranda does Christmas (I love Miranda Hart!) Someone did turn up very late and I do feel a little guilty because I told her I was unhappy with her being so late but it needed to be said, hopefully she will mention to her company and I might have a shot at someone arriving (at all) or on time until my regular support worker comes back.

My dog is currently trying to eat her own tail, I love dogs more, but still think cats might have the upper hand in intelligence :P

Sketchy 27-12-2017 10:12 PM

You are perfectly right to say you weren’t happy. I hope you soon get the support you need.

I don’t know. Molly chases her tail and licks her shadow.

Sketchy 27-12-2017 10:13 PM

In Molly’s defense, she is still a kitten, so still learning.

Buttons. 27-12-2017 10:14 PM

Ha ha (cover Molly's eyes for this) she sounds more dog than cat *shock horror*

Sketchy 27-12-2017 10:16 PM

She is very playful like a dog.

Buttons. 27-12-2017 10:35 PM

That's sweet :)

My dog has currently gone back under the covers of my bed when she realised nothing exciting was happening :P

Sketchy 27-12-2017 10:39 PM

She probably wants to get nice and cosy on this cold night.

I think I’ll fill my hot water bottles. I have the heating on, but I’m still cold.

one_step_closer 27-12-2017 10:43 PM

*runs in to say "Hello guests who are currently reading this thread, join RYL and join us!"* Wonder what they think of us.

Sketchy 27-12-2017 10:58 PM

I wonder too. Join us. We’re a nice bunch!

Buttons. 28-12-2017 06:48 AM

Hello guests!

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 10:33 AM

They probably just think we're a load of weirdos who talk about food a lot

nonperson 28-12-2017 11:17 AM

But food is THE best topic of conversation.

Speaking of food, I am back from my Cornish Christmas holiday and I had a mahoosive Cornish pasty for breakfast on Christmas day!

Best. Breakfast. Ever.

one_step_closer 28-12-2017 12:54 PM

I don't think I can remember what is in a Cornish pasty.

Cacoethes 28-12-2017 01:08 PM

Very true nonperson!
Food is life :p

I love a Cornish pasty!
Can't remember whats in one but they are delicious!

nonperson 28-12-2017 01:28 PM

Traditional ones are beef, potato, swede and onion all wrapped in lovely pastry.

But they come in all flavours now. Lamb and mint, cheese and bacon (my favourite), steak and ale, steak and stilton, chicken and chorizo... There are even sweet ones like apple and blackcurrent.
