I love pick and mix too but my sister and I are trying to be healthy, so no sweets this time. I was at the cinema a month ago and had a big pick and mix, so this time I should go without.

Cacoethes 12-09-2017 09:44 PM

Ah yeah.
Good on you for being healthy!!
I haven't had pick and mix in a really long time.
There's a retro sweet shop in town that does all kinds of sweets and ice cream but I try not to go in there!

Sketchy 12-09-2017 09:46 PM

I love sweets so much. But I had a treat this week by having pizza yesterday. I've already planned my next treat which will be a while away. I keep craving a bag of chippy chips. There are loads of chippys near my flat and they are taunting me!

Cacoethes 12-09-2017 09:48 PM

Cravings are the worst!
Whenever I go into town in the morning it smells of bacon sandwiches because of all the cafes!!

Sketchy 12-09-2017 09:51 PM

Yup, they are the worst. But I'm telling myself I'm allowed a treat every so often and then I will get the craving out my system.

Cacoethes 12-09-2017 09:57 PM

That's what I do and it does work!
Cravings don't feel so bad when you know you can treat yourself on whatever day.

I'm off to bed now.
Night night!!

Sketchy 12-09-2017 10:00 PM

Night night Beckie. Sleep well.

Buttons. 12-09-2017 10:06 PM

Cravings are natural, and as you both say, knowing at some point you can treat yourself can really help.

Incidentally I used to work in an old fashioned sweetshop. Sherbet lemons were my weakness.

Sleep well Beckie :)

Sketchy 12-09-2017 10:09 PM

If I worked in a sweet shop I know where my wages would go! I love sweets.

Buttons. 12-09-2017 10:35 PM

Ha ha believe me it gets old quickly, day in day out.

Buttons. 12-09-2017 10:35 PM

It's only really in the last year or so I've got back into sugary things and that's about 9 years after that job :P

Sketchy 12-09-2017 10:38 PM

I can understand that. I worked in a pub many years ago and was never tempted by the food. It didn't appeal to me because I saw it all the time and like you say it got old.

Buttons. 12-09-2017 10:41 PM

I'm definitely never working in a pub then-I love my pub grub! :P

Sketchy 12-09-2017 10:44 PM

I'm vegetarian, so a lot of the food never appealed to me, but even the vegetarian food didn't make me want to eat it. It turned my stomach. I enjoy pub food now.

Buttons. 12-09-2017 10:50 PM

Fair enough :)

I like sherbert again now, and some chocolate.

Sketchy 12-09-2017 10:59 PM

Mmmmmmmmm chocolate.

Buttons. 12-09-2017 11:16 PM

What's your favourite chocolate?

Sketchy 12-09-2017 11:29 PM

I like so many chocolates. I like dairy milk and galaxy. I have lemon chocolates in my happy box from a posh chocolate shop that has the most amazing chocolates.
What about you? Or are you more of a savoury person?

Buttons. 13-09-2017 03:23 AM

I'm generally more savoury but I do like Galaxy, really don't like Dairy Milk for the most part though. I also love twixes, malteasers, and it has to be said-curly wurlys :P

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 09:58 AM

Morning guys

Eska 13-09-2017 10:18 AM

Morning Beckie!

Shy_Bambi 13-09-2017 11:00 AM

Good morning everyone :)

Sketchy 13-09-2017 12:12 PM

Afternoon everyone. How are we all?

Cpt_Stunning 13-09-2017 12:38 PM

OK, I just had bolognaise & chips, it's raining outside

Eska 13-09-2017 12:42 PM

Hi Rebecca! I was wondering yesterday how you are doing.

Hi Lorraine and Cpt Stunning (sorry I don't know your name!)

I'm ok. Been napping but kept getting sleep paralysis so I'm going to go ahead and get up I think.

[Luna] 13-09-2017 12:48 PM

Hey guys!

Shy_Bambi 13-09-2017 12:57 PM

Thank you eska! Never had someone say that before :) I'm good. I was on holiday with my mum over the weekend. Hope everyone here is okies!

Love the Halloween vibe, Luna!

Buttons. 13-09-2017 02:51 PM

Afternoon all! Cpt Stunnng I love bolognese!

[Luna] 13-09-2017 03:54 PM

Thanks Rebecca!

Hey Katy, how are you?

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 04:28 PM

I went for a nap
It's now 4:30.

How are you all?

Sketchy 13-09-2017 04:36 PM

Hi all.

I have been napping too Beckie. Sometimes it's needed.

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 04:42 PM

I think it's because of getting up so early for college and being there all day.
It's gonna take some getting used to I think!

How are you Lorraine?

Sketchy 13-09-2017 04:46 PM

It will take time to adjust, but totally worth it. I'm really excited for you. I miss my student days. I studied at art school for 4 years to get my degree and it's my proudest achievement. Enjoy your student days. It's exciting.

I'm ok thanks. Having an indoors hide away day, but that's ok I guess. I'll try go out tomorrow.

How are you?

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 04:53 PM

That is true.
Thank you! :)

It is definitely ok to have an indoors day!
I've had one too.

Im ok. Just watching CBBC again!

Sketchy 13-09-2017 04:56 PM

I'm not watching anything just now. I'm enjoying the quiet.

I might snack on some nuts. I'm hungry but I'm going to have a late dinner.

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 05:05 PM

Sounds good.

What are you going to have for dinner?

Sketchy 13-09-2017 05:07 PM

I feel like having veggie sausages again with potatoes. Bit boring because I had that yesterday, but that's what I feel like. Or I might have spicy pasta. Don't know yet.

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 05:17 PM

I have the same meals a lot too.
If that's what you fancy then go for it!

Sketchy 13-09-2017 05:19 PM

I think I will.

I got a refund on my gas because I was paying too much. They are refunded me 123, so that's cheered me up today. Think of the art supplies I can buy!!! I should save it, but...

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 05:20 PM

Oh wow thats awesome!
Gotta love surprise money!

Sketchy 13-09-2017 05:25 PM

I know. A nice surprise. I was hesitant in opening it because it had the gas company on the envelope and I was think 'Oh here we go. Another bill.'

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 05:27 PM

Im always hesitant to open those types of letters too.
Sometimes it takes me a couple of days to work up the courage!

Sketchy 13-09-2017 05:31 PM

I always get nervous opening letters. I always think the worse.

Any plans for this evening? I'm going to do some drawing. I want to update my blog next week so I'll need to finish off some work.

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 05:42 PM

Me too

Sounds like a good plan!
I need to have a shower and cook dinner.
Also need to try and find an affordable desk!
And start to plan assignment.
Its only a 300-400 word thing to help judge what kind of level I'm at but I still want to do well!

Sketchy 13-09-2017 05:45 PM

First assignment is exciting. I'm sure you will do well.

Can you get a second hand desk? Or maybe try ikea. They usually have some bargains. Argos is sometimes not too bad either.

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 05:52 PM


I've looked at ikea and they're pretty expensive.
Argos have some good ones though.
I need to measure the space it would go in.
I've got a bay window so it will go in that space.
Not really got room anywhere else!

Sketchy 13-09-2017 05:58 PM

I hope you get something good.

Cacoethes 13-09-2017 06:11 PM

I need to get one soon.
I don't think I'll be as productive working on my sofa!

Buttons. 13-09-2017 06:12 PM

I love unexpected money Lorraine, I got some unexpected back pay for all the time they were dithering about me getting high moblity PIP. Awesome moment. I checked my online banking and assumed it was minus the amount and then looked again and was like what!? YAY!!!

Beckie re. desk I would strongly advise checking charities that do furniture such as St Roccos-I've had some awesome furniture from places like that over the years. First assignment nervewrackng but exciting! I need to get a proper word programme on my ancient laptop and invest in a cheap printer as I start college tomorrow (eek!)

I just found out the housing people who are supposed to be sorting out a more disabled friendly home for me have lost the OT report my social worker sent them. For the second time. And I'm not even on the effing list until that goes through. Luckily seein social worker tomorrow anyway so going to ask her to physically print the stuff off and hand it to them like I did with PIP form, she has said in the past she would do that as a last resort as oppose to emailing so I don't anticipate it being a problem-it's just when she has the time to trek to the place as obv she has like 3 million people to support so is a busy lady.

Sketchy 13-09-2017 06:18 PM

That's terrible that they lost the paper work Katy. I hope you get it sorted soon.

That's exciting about college. Are you looking forward to it?
