That’s good you finished early. You can relax now. You up to much this evening?

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 06:16 PM

Im not up to much.
Just TV and dinner!

How about you?

Sketchy 27-11-2017 06:18 PM

Probably just tv. Might do some writing. I’m really tired, so I want to have a relaxing night, not that I do much other nights though.

Sketchy 27-11-2017 06:20 PM

What you having for dinner? I had a late lunch, so I’m not hungry. Had a jacket potato with cheese in the coffee shop. It was yummy.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 06:24 PM

You have been busy lately so relaxing evening sounds good!

Ive just got a ready meal for tonight.
Being lazy!

Jacket potatoes win!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 06:28 PM

Sometimes you just want a ready meal. Something easy.

I just found out my sister and I are getting a cat on Wednesday. I’m so excited.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 06:35 PM


Yay that's awesome!! So exciting!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 06:40 PM

I’m off out tomorrow to buy her food and toys. Sister is ordering cat perch, litter tray, etc tomorrow. So excited!

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 06:42 PM

Aww that'll be great!!
Are you going to a rescue?

nonperson 27-11-2017 06:43 PM

Hi everyone. =)

This thread has made me happy because cats have been mentioned!

Cats are the best. Mine is my bestest friend, but he's odd as he's more like a dog really.

Have you got a name for her yet, Sketchy?

Sketchy 27-11-2017 06:46 PM

She’s a a cat that needs rehomed, someone my sister knows.

Hi nonperson! We’re going to call her Molly. She’ll stay at my sister’s, but I’ll be helping look after her since we live four doors away from each other. My sister works long shifts as a nurse, so I’ll spend those days looking after her.

nonperson 27-11-2017 06:48 PM

Molly is a great cat name. I keep thinking about getting another cat... They're great companions and I think any pet makes a big difference to peoples' wellbeing.

Sketchy 27-11-2017 06:51 PM

My sister says it will be good for my mental health. I love cats, but my flat is too small. My sister has a good sized flat. Perfect for a cat. I’m so excited. She’s a little black cat. 11 weeks old.

nonperson 27-11-2017 06:54 PM

I agree with your sister!

Aww, black cats are lovely. It's good you're getting her quite young, she'll adapt easily then.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 06:55 PM

Awww she sounds cute!
Black cats are awesome

Sketchy 27-11-2017 06:56 PM

My friend has the most adorable black cat. She’s gorgeous. Of course I’ll find Molly is the most gorgeous!

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 07:03 PM

Aww Molly is a cute name!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 07:06 PM

I got to name her. :)

That’s it, the heating is going on!

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 07:11 PM

I have the heating on!
Its far too cold not to now

Sketchy 27-11-2017 07:17 PM

it is indeed.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 07:32 PM

Im already sick of hearing about prince Harry getting engaged!
Its just going to be non stop until the wedding.

Sketchy 27-11-2017 07:35 PM

That’s me just heard about it. It will be all over the tv and news now.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 07:39 PM

Well, at least we might get a bank holiday out of it

Sketchy 27-11-2017 07:41 PM

Haha, that’s true.

I’m still frozen. I might fill up my hot water bottles. And make a hot drink.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 07:45 PM

That is a good plan!
I think I'll make a hot chocolate actually.

I really just want to go to bed but its too early!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 07:53 PM

You’ve had a busy day, so you must be tired. It won’t be long until it’s a reasonable time to go to bed.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 07:55 PM

Thats true.
Another early start tomorrow!
But seeing the family after college which will be nice.
And its pizza night!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 07:55 PM

Hot chocolate sounds good!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 07:56 PM

Sounds like tomorrow will be a good day then. Yay for pizza!

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 07:58 PM

Except I have maths. Boooo!!!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:00 PM

Oh no! I hate maths!

I’ve filled my hot water bottles and made a cuppa. I should be toasty in no time.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 08:09 PM

Me too!
The other week I had a full blown panic attack complete with tears and hyperventilating because he handed out a maths test sheet.
It wasn't even an actual test.
It was literally just to practice doing something we did in the lesson.
But my brain decided that was clearly too much to deal with!!

Sounds cosy!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:11 PM

That must have been so distressing. I’m so sorry you went through that.

I’m starting to get cosy now.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 08:14 PM

It was.
Thanks. My tutors were really good about it which helped.

Good :)

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:16 PM

That’s good they were helpful. I used to get panic attacks when I was doing my degree at art school, so I understand how upsetting it is. And embarrassing too. I was mortified when it happened, but generally people are nice about it.

Buttons. 27-11-2017 08:16 PM

That sounds stressful Beckie glad you had a good tutor though.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 08:20 PM

It is embarassing but people have been great.
I still get a bit panicky in maths and end up hiding on the stairs for a bit!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:21 PM

Hi Katy.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 08:22 PM

Dont talk to katy
She's being mean to me again

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:23 PM

Now do I have to separate you two again?

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:24 PM

Katy. Explain yourself!

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 08:25 PM

She started it!!

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:29 PM

I need to hear both sides!

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 08:33 PM

No need.
I am always right :p

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:36 PM

Just to be safe I’m separating you two.

Cacoethes 27-11-2017 08:37 PM

*sticks tongue out at Katy*

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:38 PM

Now now Beckie! Don’t be an instigator.

Buttons. 27-11-2017 08:40 PM

Beckie is a horrible disablest who wants to put bricks in front of my wheelchair!

Possibly best toseoerrate :p

Buttons. 27-11-2017 08:40 PM

Just saw Beckies latest post. *reaches through space and time and pokes*

Sketchy 27-11-2017 08:41 PM

Beckie, is this true????

What have I gotten myself into?
