Awesome, thanks. I do love a good brownie. ;)

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 03:36 PM

Me too!
I was really craving something cakey

Sketchy 18-11-2017 04:21 PM

Afternoon all.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 04:26 PM

Hey Lorraine!
How are you?

Sketchy 18-11-2017 04:27 PM

Im ok thanks. I’m sitting in the coffee shop having a cup of tea.

How are you?

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 04:31 PM

Sounds nice :)

Im ok. Im on an x men films binge!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 04:32 PM

Sounds good. I hope you enjoy it.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 04:45 PM

I am! :)
Have lit a nice scented candle as well

Sketchy 18-11-2017 04:45 PM

Casualty tonight! Yay!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 04:45 PM

Ooh scented candles. Nice!

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 04:50 PM

Yay casulaty!!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 04:57 PM

I look forward to Saturdays because it means casualty and a cheeky glass of wine. The two just go together so well!

Having a diet irn bru now. After this I’ll go to the shop then back home. The coffee shop is nice and quiet.

Went for my migraine treatment today; multiple cranial nerve blocks (10 in total) - quite sore this time around! Treated myself to a costa afterwards though haha. Hope everyone is OK.

Sketchy 18-11-2017 05:00 PM

Hey Tasha. I hope you are ok. Costa afterwards is a good treat. What did you get?

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 05:01 PM

That is a good combo Lorraine!

Tasha, that does sound like it would be rather sore!
Hope you feel better soon!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 05:13 PM

I think I’ll pop into the chemist next to see if they sell hot water bottles. I can’t find mine.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 05:16 PM

Thats a good idea.
Hot water bottles are great!

Caramel Latte - they don't even ask me what I want anymore haha ;-)

I've got a bruised forehead now which is quite annoying but it's long term pain relief so I'm grateful!

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 05:30 PM

I always get caramel lattes when I go to Costa.
Nom!

Thats good it helps in the long term!
Does sound annoying though
I guess better than migraines
Ive only had migraines a few times luckily but they are so awful!!

not_so_insig 18-11-2017 05:34 PM

Afternoon all. I have a cat on my lap.

Sketchy 18-11-2017 06:22 PM

I hope you heal up soon Tasha. Yum, caramel latte.

Lucky you Dawn. I’d love to have a cat on my lap.

I’ve been to the shop and bought two hot water bottles. I’m already having a wee lay down and have filled them. I couldn’t be any toastier if I tried!

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 06:43 PM

Hot water bottles are the best in this weather!!
I dont go to bed without one!

Buttons. 18-11-2017 06:46 PM

Hope you heal soon Tasha!

Hot water bottles are win. I'm currently using my dog as one. Though tbf I think she uses me for the same thing on occasion so...

Sketchy 18-11-2017 06:48 PM

I’ll be refilling them up tonight before I go to sleep. My friend has been nagging at me to get one. He has four!

What are you having for dinner Beckie? I bought quorn cheesy escalopes. Going to have one of those. Will probably have it later though. I’m too toasty to move. :)

Sketchy 18-11-2017 06:48 PM

Pets are good for that Katy. I hope you are keeping each other warm.

Sketchy 18-11-2017 06:50 PM

Also, what are you having for dinner Katy? Not that I’m nosey or anything.

Buttons. 18-11-2017 06:50 PM

Am entirely thick what's an escalope?

I'm having a rare second takeaway in a row in a bit as my friend is coming round. Bit nervous as she hasn't seen my house yet and apart from lunch a few weeks ago we hadn't seen each other in Years but lunch went really well so I think it will be fun.

Sketchy 18-11-2017 06:51 PM

It’s like a fillet with a layer of cheese and breadcrumbs on top.

Sketchy 18-11-2017 06:52 PM

That’s great you are having a friend over. I hope you both enjoy your takeaway. What kind?

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 06:54 PM

Hope you enjoy yourself katy!
Takeaway is always a win!

Im not actually that hungry (makes a change!!)
But i will have something at some point
Cheesy escalopes sound yummy!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 06:59 PM

Casualty isn’t on until 9.10 pm tonight. I prefer it when it’s early.

Buttons. 18-11-2017 07:04 PM

That sounds really tasty Lorraine! And thankyou.

Thanks Beckie :)

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 07:05 PM

I prefer it when its on early too
Although now i do have time to squeeze in a 3rd x men film!!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 07:08 PM

I’m going to watch my mad fat diary on all 4 until casualty comes on. Might make dinner soon. I’m getting hungry.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 07:13 PM

That was a good series!

Ive just put some soup on

Sketchy 18-11-2017 07:16 PM

Yum. What kind of soup?

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 07:19 PM

Swede, carrot, onion and potato again.
Its one those ones in the bag that you just add stock to and cook on the stove
Im getting hungry now!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 07:21 PM

That sounds good. I’ll need to start making soup again. It’s ideal in this weather. I have an odd craving for noodles. I must buy those next time I’m in the shop.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 07:27 PM

I love noodles
I have the mug shot chicken and sweetcorn noodles that I bring for lunch at college.

I can hear a strange ticking type noise but i cant identify what it is. Its annoying and freaking me out!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 07:36 PM

I like the mug shots.

I hope the ticking goes away soon. I get freaked out by strange noises too, so I do sympathise.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 07:43 PM

The ticking seems to have stopped!
I mainly worry that the boiler is going to explode or something.
I am really jittery around anything gas.
I can't use any gas cookers or anything and when we had to use the bunsen burners in college I was panicking so much and was convinced i could smell gas!
Im a bit of a weirdo tbh

Sketchy 18-11-2017 07:49 PM

You’re not a weirdo. I’m the exact same. I constantly worry about my boiler.
Glad it’s stopped though.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 07:53 PM

Thanks!
At least its not just me
Sucks to be so anxious about it though

Sketchy 18-11-2017 07:56 PM

I know. It does suck. I’ve phoned my dad many times needing to be reassured that nothing is going wrong.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 08:15 PM

I just sit and quietly panic because part of me knows I'm being irrational but I have been very close to calling 999 about it before!
Im similar with electrics. The upstairs hallway light has been out for almost 3 years because im too scared to change it!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 08:36 PM

I’m ok changing lights, although my height makes it difficult! But I’m terrified of leaving electrics on. I have to check everything properly at night before I go to bed.

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 08:38 PM

I do the same.
Nothing can be left on!

Sketchy 18-11-2017 09:41 PM

30 minutes until casualty!

Cacoethes 18-11-2017 09:47 PM

Not long to go!!!
