Thanks Lorraine :)

Did you enjoy writing group?

Sketchy 24-01-2017 08:53 PM

I did. I nearly never went because of anxiety, but I'm glad I did. How are you?

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 09:05 PM

I am glad that you went Lorraine. I am supposed to be going for coffee tomorrow with my friend but I am scared.

Sketchy 24-01-2017 09:12 PM

I understand feeling scared, but maybe you'll enjoy it when you get there. And you'll feel pleased with yourself if you do go.

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 09:14 PM

Yes I think that my friend will be equally as anxious so it helps.

Sketchy 24-01-2017 09:16 PM

It will be nice for you to see each other.

What are you up to this evening? I'm not long home. Just in bed trying to heat up. I'm always cold.

RainbowWalker 24-01-2017 09:20 PM

You could try to use one of these heat bottles! I have a rubber one which I use almost every night in winter. It's quite nice. I remember my grandmother even had a metal one. These were dangerous ...if the water was too hot, you could easily burn your feet or legs. So they often wrapped a towel around it. ;)

Sketchy 24-01-2017 09:23 PM

I should get one. I never used to feel the cold this bad. Are you up to anything exciting this evening?

Cacoethes 24-01-2017 09:23 PM

Hot water bottles are a good idea.

I've just watched holby and watching eastenders now. Lots of drama going on!!
Probably go to bed after this. I'm very tired!

Sketchy 24-01-2017 09:24 PM

You must be tired from all your hard work studying. Do you have any exams tomorrow?

Cacoethes 24-01-2017 09:26 PM

Luckily not. My next exam isn't until next Tuesday. And I don't have college tomorrow so I can have a lie in :)

Have you got much on tomorrow?

Sketchy 24-01-2017 09:28 PM

You deserve a lie in.

I'm not doing anything tomorrow. If I feel like a walk I might, but I think I'll probably leave my walk until Thursday. I'll see how I feel.

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 11:10 PM

My neighbour found a dog. It's now in the care of the dog warden but I wondered why there was a strange dog in her garden. According to Facebook (I belong to a lost and found pets group) it may belong to someone 2 streets away. It's very friendly and let me give it a fuss.

Sketchy 24-01-2017 11:12 PM

I hope the dog finds his home.

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 11:16 PM

Hopefully it's chipped because that's a legal requirement now but the kennels the dog warden takes all dogs too is open at 8 am so they will get it back. It also had no collar if it had a tag my neighbour would have phoned the owner.

Sketchy 24-01-2017 11:20 PM

I should go to sleep, but I feel like staying up a bit longer. I've finally heated up.

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 11:22 PM

I went for a shower to warm up. I am waiting for the washing machine to finish otherwise I would go to bed early.

Sketchy 24-01-2017 11:24 PM

Have you anything planned for tomorrow? I don't. I should tidy the flat though. I might go for a walk if I feel up to it.

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 11:26 PM

Only coffee with my friend if she doesn't cancel.

Sketchy 24-01-2017 11:28 PM

I forgot about that. I hope you manage to enjoy yourself.

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 11:30 PM

Yes I am sure it will be fine. I am not sure what sort of mood my friend will be in as she's been depressed for about 6 months now.

Sketchy 24-01-2017 11:33 PM

That's a shame. I know how awful depression is. Hopefully it will do her good getting out for coffee, even if it is hard.

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 11:39 PM

Yes the fact that she intends to meets me means a lot. That reminds me I must get her present ready.

Sketchy 24-01-2017 11:41 PM

I'm going to log off soon so I'll wish you good night. Hope coffee goes well.

not_so_insig 24-01-2017 11:44 PM

Goodnight Lorraine

Buttons. 25-01-2017 05:29 AM

Morning all :P

chinahorse 25-01-2017 06:49 AM

Morning :)

[Luna] 25-01-2017 07:36 AM

Good morning lovelies

chinahorse 25-01-2017 07:42 AM

So ooo anyone up to much excitement today?

I have a meeting work group and that's it I think. May go out and explore the area if my hips let me.

[Luna] 25-01-2017 07:46 AM

I hope the group goes well. Exploring sounds a nice idea. Richmond is a lovely area.

I don't have anything especially exciting planned. Need to go to the library, got a doctor appointment this afternoon and slimming world later on. My back is absolute agony so will probably lie under my duvet and watch a film.

Buttons. 25-01-2017 08:54 AM

Hope your back improves lovely.

Exploring sounds like a plan Lillie

I am hoping to meet Zed in town later if can make myself half way presentable :P support worker coming in in hour or so should be able to help :)

[Luna] 25-01-2017 09:00 AM

Thank you.
I hope your support worker helps and you enjoy spending time with Zed!

Buttons. 25-01-2017 09:09 AM

Sure I will :)

[Luna] 25-01-2017 09:17 AM

I need to stop looking at amazon when I'm bored :/

Buttons. 25-01-2017 09:21 AM

Oh my days same I swear a fair portion of my dreams end up in Amazon buying ;P

not_so_insig 25-01-2017 10:23 AM

I had a strange dream last night. Basically I was looking after Tina's mum in eastenders whilst dealing with a employer who told a pack of lies.

[Luna] 25-01-2017 10:51 AM

I don't watch EastEnders but that does sound like a strange dream!

not_so_insig 25-01-2017 10:59 AM

Yes especially as in my dream my employer made a few nasty comments about my weight. He also sent malicious emails and a computer whizz basically proved that it was his computer in his office. All whilst swimming in a pool. It was bizarre to say the least.

[Luna] 25-01-2017 11:29 AM

Sounds very strange and not very pleasant. what you up to today?

Cacoethes 25-01-2017 11:38 AM

Morning everyone :)

[Luna] 25-01-2017 11:47 AM

Morning Beckie, how are you?

Cacoethes 25-01-2017 12:56 PM

I'm ok thanks. Just filled in the medical form for my provisional driving licence which is exciting!

How are you?

[Luna] 25-01-2017 01:32 PM

That's very exciting Beckie!

I'm supposed to be tidying the house but I'm in too much pain. Feel a bit pathetic.

not_so_insig 25-01-2017 01:47 PM

I recently did the same Beckie as you said exciting times.

Sketchy 25-01-2017 02:25 PM

Good afternoon everyone.

not_so_insig 25-01-2017 02:32 PM

Afternoon Lorraine.

I went for coffee with my friend before. We both had a good time and hopefully we can meet again next week.

Sketchy 25-01-2017 02:38 PM

That's great you both managed it. I know you were a bit worried. What are your plans for the rest of the day?

not_so_insig 25-01-2017 02:42 PM

Nothing much just watching tv. I found out the reason why my letter to my friend went unanswered today and it's nothing that I have done.

Sketchy 25-01-2017 02:44 PM

That must be a relief.

I'm having a lazy day. I'm not up to doing much today.

not_so_insig 25-01-2017 02:52 PM

Basically she moved and the post office didn't forward my letter was the reason why. She's moved within walking distance of the cmht and there's plenty of buses so it's a lot easier to get to her house as where she lived before was very remote with no public transport.
