I don't usually put my heating on until October. I am sitting under a duvet and have my electric fire on.

Sketchy 14-09-2017 06:34 PM

I hope you heat up soon.

[Luna] 14-09-2017 06:34 PM

It's definitely getting cooler.

Sketchy 14-09-2017 06:36 PM

I'm looking forward to wearing my boots, wrapping up and walking through leaves. I love autumn.

[Luna] 14-09-2017 06:38 PM

I love autumn too! I need to get a jacket though. My winter coat is far too bulky but I get chilly outside.

Cpt_Stunning 14-09-2017 06:38 PM

I don't mind the cold too much, it's just harder to get out of bed in the morning mostly I find, even outside I don't mind it too much.

What I don't like is driving wind and rain, you open you're umbrella & it turns inside out.

Sketchy 14-09-2017 06:40 PM

I have a coat that's not too bulky and I can always wear layers. I don't like being too warm though. I'm looking forward to taking photos of the leaves and drawing then.

[Luna] 14-09-2017 06:40 PM

Yeah that's the worst! That's how nearly all my umbrellas break.

Sketchy 14-09-2017 06:40 PM

Umbrellas are so frustrating!

[Luna] 14-09-2017 06:48 PM

They are indeed. They are so flimsy and I always nearly have my eye poked out by someone else's umbrella.

Cacoethes 14-09-2017 06:48 PM

I got caught in torrential rain earlier.
I had my umbrella and still managed to get soaked!
:plain:

[Luna] 14-09-2017 06:49 PM

Oh no Beckie, that's not good. Are you dry and ok now?

Sketchy 14-09-2017 06:50 PM

Oh no. I hope you are dry now Beckie.

Cacoethes 14-09-2017 06:50 PM

Yeah I'm back home and all dry now!

Sketchy 14-09-2017 06:51 PM

How are you Beckie? How's your day been?

Cacoethes 14-09-2017 06:53 PM

Not great tbh!
I had to make an emergency GP appointment and I have a nasty infection. Got to pick up anti biotics tomorrow.
Fun fun!!
I'll live though!

How are you Lorraine?

Sketchy 14-09-2017 06:55 PM

That's a shame Beckie. I hope it clears up soon. Try take it easy and be kind to yourself.

I'm ok. Tired as always, but I'll survive.

Cacoethes 14-09-2017 06:57 PM

Thanks.
Gutted i won't be able to make it to fit beatz tonight!!

Are you up to much tonight?

Sketchy 14-09-2017 06:59 PM

There is always next week. Why don't you watch your favourite programmes or do something nice you like.

I'm going to relax and do some drawing.

Eska 14-09-2017 07:08 PM

I hope you feel better soon Beckie!

Enjoy your drawing Lorraine :)

Sketchy 14-09-2017 07:09 PM

Hi Eska. How has your day been?

Eska 14-09-2017 07:13 PM

It's been ok! I went into town and managed some food shopping, and also bought a little diary for tracking my mood. Then I worked on a mood scale to go with it so I can work out what number I'm at on any given day. Hopefully it will be helpful.

Sketchy 14-09-2017 07:15 PM

That sounds like a productive day. I hope the mood diary helps.

Eska 14-09-2017 07:20 PM

Thanks :) I also made a flowchart the other day of what to do if I'm getting to crisis point, so hopefully that will help too. It's all because I'm trying to get ready to move back in with my friends so I need to have all the strategies I can in place.

Sketchy 14-09-2017 07:25 PM

That sounds really positive and a good way of managing things. It's always good to have a plan of action. Hopefully the move will go smoothly, but you know you have us lot here for support if you need it.

Cacoethes 14-09-2017 07:28 PM

Thanks guys

Sounds like productive day eska!

Buttons. 14-09-2017 08:10 PM

I'm back. Woman on the phone gave my mum the wrong ****ing date. College starts next week instead. So I've rolled home and broken the two weeks or however long I've been out of hospital's sobriety. And I really, really don't care. Dad was awful.

So I have cuddled up with my dog and am watching Dara O'Brien's stand up and might try and find my set of Miranda DVDs or something else light hearted when can next be arsed to move.

Buttons. 14-09-2017 08:11 PM

Well done Eska *gives gold star* :)

not_so_insig 14-09-2017 08:26 PM

I don't know what to say Katy but I leave hugs.

Mike has sent me a email *feels special*

Buttons. 14-09-2017 08:29 PM

Thanks Dawn. Indeed an honour-did it pertain to the Labour Party perchance? :P

Sketchy 14-09-2017 09:02 PM

*hugs* for Katy.

Buttons. 14-09-2017 09:10 PM

Thanks Lorraine <3

Buttons. 14-09-2017 09:11 PM

I've switched to Peter Kay now...garlic.....and bread?

Eska 14-09-2017 09:20 PM

Oh Katy <3 I'm sorry you've had such a rough evening. Comedy and dog cuddles sounds like a good way forward.

Buttons. 14-09-2017 09:59 PM

Thanks Eska. I've R&Ved and also written some utter crap on my literary thread in creativty and reviews so am tryng to get feelings out *constructively*

Cacoethes 14-09-2017 09:59 PM

Massive hugs katy
Hopefully comedy will help

Buttons. 14-09-2017 10:01 PM

Thanks Queen of the Aardvarks!

Cacoethes 14-09-2017 10:09 PM

<3 <3 <3

Im watching ambulance

not_so_insig 14-09-2017 10:14 PM

I am watching Ambulance too.

Katy, Mike emailed me regarding union stuff. I am the member of the same union community as Mike since we live fairly near each other.

Cacoethes 14-09-2017 10:21 PM

Im off to bed now.
I want to watch ambulance but I'm so tired!

Night all

Buttons. 14-09-2017 10:26 PM

I'm leaving ambulance for tonight and will watch in better head space, seems wise :P I'll stick with Peter Kay and Janice and Barbara for now :P

That's really cool Dawn :)

Eska 15-09-2017 09:51 AM

Morning everyone

Cpt_Stunning 15-09-2017 09:57 AM

Good morning

Buttons. 15-09-2017 09:58 AM

Cacoethes 15-09-2017 10:00 AM

Morning guys!

Eska 15-09-2017 10:15 AM

How are we all?

Cacoethes 15-09-2017 10:17 AM

Ok thanks.
Off to zumba in a minute.

How are you?

Buttons. 15-09-2017 10:21 AM

Life is **** but I am wearing a Roal Dahl Matilda T-shirt (original art quentin blake) with book worm written on it that i didnt realise arrived yesterday. I cannot wait to rub it in Lins/Onestepcloser's face (because I'm a delight like that) :P

Buttons. 15-09-2017 10:21 AM

Zumba sounds fun!

Eska 15-09-2017 10:27 AM

I'm ok. I'm watching Educating Greater Manchester.

Zumba sounds good!

Katy I expect pictures, that sounds like a great t-shirt.
