chinahorse 30-06-2017 02:07 PM

Hopefully the day will go without any hicupps beckie and tgat is sweet of your sister.and wow she's grown!!

I've made 2 baby blankets and 1 big blanket this far. Now got jodies to make.

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 02:09 PM

Yep it has!! My beautiful baby girl isn't a baby anymore!!
No idea what to get her for her birthday. She wants everything!!

Sounds good lillie! You must be getting good now!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 03:17 PM

Good afternoon everyone!! How are we all?
That sounds like a really nice day tomorrow Beckie! I wish I had a sister. But alas, I am but an only child.

chinahorse 30-06-2017 03:21 PM

Maybe get an experience to make memories not something material beckie?

Hi rebecca:) hope I've got the name right!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 03:31 PM

I have 4 younger siblings.
I always wanted to be an only child when i was a kid but we've all grown up now (youngest is sister who's just turned 13, next one up is 18) and it's pretty nice to have siblings now!!

That's a really good idea Lillie!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 03:33 PM

Hello Lillie! Yup that's my name! :D how are you today?

I'm glad I'm an only child but I do get really lonely a lot :(

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 03:37 PM

I get pretty lonely too. My siblings are off doing their own things now! I haven't seen one of them in months, and that was only for 5 minutes when he picked up a tv from mine!
The others still live at mum's though so I see them occasionally!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 03:41 PM

Having siblings must be nice even if you don't see them. Just knowing you have someone there. You can always call them up, too just to say hi!! :D it's just the sharing stuff that I wouldn't get on with lol!!

chinahorse 30-06-2017 03:42 PM

Try having a twin. I've literally never ever been able to be selfish or be the centre of attention lol

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 03:45 PM

Oh wow you're a twin?! I've always wished I had a twin! :D

chinahorse 30-06-2017 03:46 PM

I have a male twin. Isn't as exciting as if I were identical.

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 03:47 PM

I would call them up for a chat if they ever answered their bloody phones!!
I usually only call them when I cant get hold of mum to ask where she is. Shes terrible with answering phones too :eyeroll:

Oh no lillie! I can't imagine having a twin!!

chinahorse 30-06-2017 03:49 PM

Mist run in the family beclient lol

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 03:52 PM

Me and my mum always communicate on WhatsApp. We live in the same house, and we stay in our rooms that are literally next door to each other, but instead of talking we WhatsApp xD

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 03:56 PM

Must do!!

Haha! We used to do that when i lived at home.
Well,back then it was MSN. Mum used to message us to tell us when dinner was ready.

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 03:59 PM

Oh wow, back in the good old days when msn was the must have thing xD kids these days are missing out!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 04:06 PM

Ikr!!! Loved msn!! XD

I feel so old. I don't think my sister would even know what msn is!!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 04:11 PM

Like vhs tapes. Kids these days wouldn't have a clue! They'll never know the struggle we had with waiting for rewind the tape every time so we could watch it again!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 04:13 PM

Omg yes!! And how **** the quality actually was!!
I miss blockbuster. Something really exciting about going and picking out a film! We only did it as a treat once in a while!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 04:32 PM

I remember doing that too!! Nowadays it's all at the click of a button. Back in my day we had to work for what we wanted. We couldn't get it online like now. And back in my day, our internet was literally the phone line. You couldn't use the phone if I was online. I had to literally call up the internet and hope it would answer xD and I could only in on after 6pm because it was cheaper. none of this WiFi dohicky stuff back then. The struggle was very real!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 04:40 PM

Exactly!! And when you used the internet you'd get that horrible dialling up tone when it was connecting!
Kids these days don't know how good they've got it!!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 04:41 PM

My mum loved that tone xD ah, the good old days!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 04:42 PM

How could she like it?!
It was an awful screechy sound!!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 04:50 PM

I think she just liked the idea of calling the internet up to be honest. It was such a new exciting thing, it made her happy xD but I agree it was like some kind of banshi screaming through the speakers!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 04:54 PM

Oh gosh but don't get me started on if I wanted to watch a video online! D8 I'd honestly have to wait like 15 minutes for the thing to load so I could watch a 2 minute video. And pictures, I had to wait for them to load line by line xD

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 05:06 PM

It was very banshee like!! Awful!

Omg yes!! The loading was terrible!
Nowadays if it doesn't load in 3 seconds we get frustrated!!

My sofa has just been delivered. Its nice!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 05:08 PM

That's exactly right!! When the page lags I get really irritated xD

Oh!!! What colour is it?

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 05:15 PM

Same!!

Its like a mocha kind of colour i suppose. Its nice and very comfy!
So now my living room is crowded because old sofa isn't going until sunday!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 05:36 PM

Oh that sounds nice and warm and homey! Have you got anything else coming for your home?

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 05:38 PM

Hes gonna try and find a wardrobe for me. In 5 odd years of living in the community, i have never been able to get a wardrobe!
Im gonna ask about a desk too.

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 06:04 PM

Oh wow not bad!! I haven't got a wardrobe, I just folds my clothes up and put them in a heap on my floor xD

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 06:08 PM

Yep that's my clothes situation also!

FabulousMike 30-06-2017 06:23 PM

Wardrobes are overrated!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 06:31 PM

Well, I've managed without one for this long!

FabulousMike 30-06-2017 06:36 PM

Exactly, they are not needed!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 06:44 PM

Nope! But it would make things a bit easier!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 08:05 PM

Last time I had a wardrobe when I was little it ended up just being a toy cupboard with only toys in it and on clothes!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 08:09 PM

Haha! I had wardrobes in hospitals.
In one of the adolescent units, me and a friend would hide in our wardrobes to scare the staff. It was funny. :p

Wonderland. 30-06-2017 08:54 PM

Me and this other girl absolutely **** this member of staff up by chance one time. She hid in my cupboard when this HCA came to do checks as we were always getting bollocked for being in each others rooms, so I somehow pulled off the lie (I'm such a bad lier!) that she'd gone on leave as she had been earlier that day and people who were allowed leave were always coming and going from the ward. So everything was okay at first and then she went on a rampage round the ward frantically looking for her. Then came back to my room with another member or staff who immediately knew she was in the cupboard but kept quiet. Then this HCA is pacing up and down asking me where she's gone and if I'm really sure she went on leave. It was so hilarious and they Sammi pops out the cupboard in hysterics as did the other member of staff and me. Lets just say the HCA wanted to bloody kill us ;-p

Wonderland. 30-06-2017 08:56 PM

Think those ten minutes were the longest I've had anyone on ever!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 08:58 PM

Wow that's awesome! I kinda wish I was in a place like that now just for the lolz!

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 09:09 PM

Ahahaha!! Thats hilarious amy!!
We were in dorms. 4 to a room with walls separating our bed spaces.
We used to build forts a lot and write 'no staff allowed' on signs!
They always took down our forts when we were at school :(
Adolescent units could be quite fun! You kind of had to make the best of it!

Sketchy 30-06-2017 09:43 PM

Hey everyone.

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 09:50 PM

Hi Lorraine! How are you?

Sketchy 30-06-2017 09:54 PM

I'm sleepy but ok. Im tired after my busy day shopping and eating out, then being at my sister's yesterday. Im back home now and lying in bed.

How are you?

Cacoethes 30-06-2017 09:57 PM

Sounds like a good day!

Im sleepy too. I took my meds early because i am sick of being so bored! So I'll probs be in bed soon!

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 09:57 PM

Oh I loved making forts when I was a kid! I used to eat my dinner in them and everything. Best thing ever. I should go ahead and make one tomorrow. Just because I'm a grown up doesn't mean I can't have a fort :D

Hi Lorraine!! Sounds like a good busy day for you!

Sketchy 30-06-2017 10:00 PM

Hi Rebecca. How are you?

I'll probably be asleep soon too Beckie. Being bored sucks. Do you have a film or program you can watch?

Shy_Bambi 30-06-2017 10:03 PM

I'm bored too but I'm staying up for Graham Norton, then I'm going to sleep.
