What did you have for lunch Cacoethes?

Sketchy 16-09-2017 01:17 PM

Hi all.

How is everyone.

It's a miracle! I got out of bed and made it to my writing group! Glad I did. This feels like a huge step considering how low and exhausted I've been feeling.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 01:24 PM

I'm OK, had a ham sandwich, how many people are in the group?

Sketchy 16-09-2017 01:26 PM

Hope you enjoyed your sandwich. Usually there are 5 of us, but there were only 3 this week.

Cacoethes 16-09-2017 01:53 PM

I had a 'Moroccan style veggie cous cous salad' from Boots.
It was very tasty!!

Well done for getting to your group lorraine!
Thats excellent!

Sketchy 16-09-2017 01:56 PM

That does sound tasty.


How is your day so far?

I'm in costa having a tea before I go getting passport forms, photos and other shopping.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 01:58 PM

I didn't know any shop of Boots was big enough to do food anymore. There used to be a huge Boots shop in the city centre where I am, but that was years ago, got taken over by M&S, or Marks & Sparks as people call it.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 02:01 PM

Only the city centre boots tend to do food here.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 02:06 PM

Is it big? the M&S store where I am is massive, I think there's only 2 Boots stores in the city where I live, both small

Sketchy 16-09-2017 02:09 PM

Two of them are rather big. We have big m&s too.

Right I'm off to get my passport forms. Catch you guys later.

not_so_insig 16-09-2017 02:09 PM

Afternoon all.

I dropped my kitties off at the cattery this morning and I am already worried about them.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 02:10 PM

Have you used them before? I'm sure your kitties will be fine, although I can understand you worrying.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 02:12 PM

I volunteer at the local homeless cats shelter, but the have boarding cats too, some people - if they have more than one cat - put their cats in the same kennel, some people book different kennels for each cat, dunno why.

not_so_insig 16-09-2017 02:31 PM

No I haven't used them before. They took the kitties off me so I didn't get to settle them in the pens. I know that my youngest will be fine as she's confident but my oldest is quite nervous.

not_so_insig 16-09-2017 02:39 PM

I had two pens. My youngest sometimes picks on my oldest and in my flat she has enough space to get away. I didn't want my oldest to be bullied so it's probably safer on her own.

When I had my previous cat he was on a different diet to the others so it was detrimental if he ate the others food. I used to supervise him at meal times at home; they couldn't do that in the cattery. Although the other two were on the same diet they didn't get on well enough to be locked in a small space so they had a pen each.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 03:09 PM

I got my forms. Now on train home, waiting for it to leave.

I hope your cats are well looked after. I'm sure they will be. Do you leave tomorrow? I hope you have a good time.

not_so_insig 16-09-2017 03:10 PM

I am leaving tomorrow Lorraine.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 03:12 PM

Hope you have a fab time. It will be nice getting away for a bit.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 03:45 PM

not_so_insig, did you book them into on of the catteries where they put webcams in so wherever you are in the world you can log in & watch your cat?

I think maybe that started as a novelty, but the fad wore off maybe.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 03:53 PM

Home now. I'm so tired from my early start to the day.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 03:55 PM

where are you going not-so-insig?

The cat on my avator was called Monty, he was my parents cat but he died in March 2014.

This is a video of me interacting with him.


Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 03:58 PM

It is quite easy to set up a YouTube account & record videos of your cats, they sort of have like a really easy guide on how to do it.

Monty unfortunately passed away from heart failure over 3 years ago, I've got pictures of him still, but videos are better to remember him by.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 04:09 PM

I watched the video. Monty looked an adorable affectionate wee cat. I'm sorry for your loss.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 04:14 PM

he was really cute, I grew up with Burmese cats, but my parents decided they were a bit too affectionate, so after the last one died, they got Monty a British Blue, cuddly but not overly affectionate.

I'm not allowed a pet where I live now, renting.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 04:17 PM

I bet you're glad to be home now Sketchy, got much planned for the rest of the day?

Sketchy 16-09-2017 04:19 PM

I am glad to be home thanks. You can call me Lorraine if you like.
I'm just going to have a relaxing rest of the day and maybe do some drawing.
Do you have plans?

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 06:35 PM

Just had a nap, have quiche & chips for dinner probably. Then watch a movie on YouTube.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 06:52 PM

I like quiche. Hope you enjoy it.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 06:55 PM

bet your favourite is quiche lorraine, sorry rubbish joke, bet you've heard that before.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 06:58 PM

quiche is nice, my mum makes it from scratch, really big to, yum.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 07:10 PM

Haha yup I've heard that before.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 07:17 PM

watching a bit of Ali G now, have more to eat maybe egg on toast later before bedtime

Sketchy 16-09-2017 07:19 PM

Good plan. I'm just lying down for a bit. Really tired after early start and I didn't sleep well last night. I'll be watching casualty later.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 07:40 PM

I have been called 'The man with a plan' before.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 07:46 PM


It's getting colder now. I might have to start putting the heating on again.

Buttons. 16-09-2017 07:51 PM

I know the feeling Lorraine with the 'is it time to put the heating on....yes' Also I;ve been getting my wooolly jumpers down from upstairs via mum/support workers.

Sorry if I've ignored anyone haven't got energy to read back through so hello how are you? <3

Buttons. 16-09-2017 07:52 PM

Also Casualty is always a win.

Sketchy 16-09-2017 07:54 PM

Hi Katy.

Yay casualty! I'm looking forward to that.

Cpt_Stunning 16-09-2017 07:54 PM

I didn't know Casualty was still going, is it mostly still the same format?

Sketchy 16-09-2017 07:56 PM

Yeh, it's still pretty much the same format. A lot of us on this thread all watch it.

Cacoethes 16-09-2017 07:58 PM

I have just got home and am also waiting for casualty!
I was walking through town and there are all these people in pubs and waiting at the train station all dressed for a night out and here I am, in my PJs eating nectarines and drinking tea :p
Rock and roll!!

Sketchy 16-09-2017 08:00 PM

Eska 16-09-2017 08:02 PM
