All hail the psychic fish!!! :p

Hope things go ok today lovely xx

It looks like I'll be going home this evening. If my brother can refrain from drinking today!
It's still not set in stone. :(

I had a fortune telling fish in a parcel that came as part of a ryl raffle once.

I am going to my aunt's house later so don't worry about me not posting. Her grandchildren are going to be there so I am not looking forward to it because it will be noisy. Noisy situations stress me out and make the voices worse. I wish I could get out of it.

Serendipity. 26-12-2016 04:46 PM

Beckie, the fish obviously knew that you are secretly in love with me :P

*Huge hugs for Katy*

Dawn can you just tell them you don't feel up to it? Otherwise I hope it goes okay!

not_so_insig 26-12-2016 05:20 PM

Unfortunately I can't get out of it otherwise I would. But thanks anyway Hannah.

Sketchy 26-12-2016 05:46 PM

Beckie I hope you get home ok.

Dawn, I hope it's not too stressful for you and they aren't too noisy.

I've not long got home. I'm just going to relax and eat some of my Christmas chocolates I got with a book.

Cacoethes 26-12-2016 06:43 PM

Haha!! I totally am Hannah :p

It doesn't look like I'll be going home tonight. Which really really sucks. I want to go home!

Hope it goes ok Dawn.

Sounds good Lorraine :)

Sketchy 26-12-2016 10:05 PM

Sorry you're not going home, but I hope you enjoy your extra day there anyway.

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 12:34 AM

I knew it Beckie! :P

I have a cold :( Sympathy plz.

Sketchy 27-12-2016 12:37 AM

Poor Hannah. I hope you feel better soon.

not_so_insig 27-12-2016 12:39 AM

Thanks everyone for their wishes. The grandchildren weren't very noisy until the crackers were pulled and a whoopee cushion came out. Cue lots of sitting on it for about an hour of which the children went to bed soon after. Then because the kids were trying to sleep it was normal conversation level. So it weren't too bad. I feel a little bit stressed than normal but nothing that I can't handle. I got a cute cat mug as a present though.

tiptoes 27-12-2016 12:39 AM

Leaves loads of sympathy.

I hope you feel better soon Hannah. x

Sketchy 27-12-2016 12:41 AM

Well done Dawn on getting through it.

tiptoes 27-12-2016 12:41 AM

Sounds like you had a pretty good day not so insig.

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 01:47 AM

I'm glad it was okay Dawn :)

Thanks for the sympathy! How are you all tonight?

Buttons. 27-12-2016 07:25 AM

*showers sympathy*

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 07:33 AM


Morning Katy! How are you? Any plans for today?

Buttons. 27-12-2016 09:23 AM

My mum is hopefully coming round and also taking me for more cigs to last me over the insane next week or so so happy times :) How about you?

I've got it :tongue2:

Sketchy 27-12-2016 02:28 PM

Good afternoon everyone. How are we all?

not_so_insig 27-12-2016 02:47 PM

My amazon parcel arrived before (I had an amazon voucher but not for Christmas). Been as I am at my parents the delivery person came with a parcel for my mum too. I am not sure if I should count my latest purchase as a SI free reward.

Sketchy 27-12-2016 02:49 PM

You could always make it a little treat and still reward yourself. I'm doing a daily to do list where after a week or so I'll reward myself. Not sure what with. Just something small.

not_so_insig 27-12-2016 02:52 PM

Thanks Lorraine.

I got The Tomorrow People dvd (the 1990s version ) if anyone was interested in what I got.

Sketchy 27-12-2016 02:56 PM

I hope you enjoy it.

not_so_insig 27-12-2016 04:01 PM

Thanks Lorraine. I have it recorded because the first two episodes were shown as part of citv's old skool weekend that they had a few years ago. I can delete them which should free up some space on my hard disk on my freesat box.

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 05:29 PM

Hi everyone. Finally home!!

Sorry to hear about your cold Hannah!
I have a feeling I may develop one as pretty much the whole family had colds!!

Wonderland. 27-12-2016 05:46 PM

Yay for being home Becky!

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 06:07 PM

Hi amy!! Thanks :) how are you?
Off to slimming world in a bit. Dreading it but got to face the music at some point! Might as well get it over and done with then I can start again in the new year! Loads of people do this though so at least I'm not alone!

Wonderland. 27-12-2016 06:16 PM

I think a lot of people will be in the same boat as you so try to worry!

I'm good thanks, just very tired!

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 06:23 PM

Yeah, it won't be just me!

Hope you have a restful evening!
I'm quite tired too. Weird how a long journey can make you tired even though you're not doing anything!

Sketchy 27-12-2016 06:32 PM

Hi Amy and Beckie. Beckie, I bet your glad to be home.

Wonderland. 27-12-2016 06:39 PM

Hey Lorraine how are you?

Thanks Becky I will do.

Car journeys are tiring! Hopefully you can chill after slimming world.

Sketchy 27-12-2016 06:41 PM

I'm ok thanks. How are you?

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 07:52 PM

Hey guys. Slimming world actually went incredibly well! Don't know how but I feel really good about it! :)
Chilling with game of thrones until holby comes on!

Hi Lorraine!

Sketchy 27-12-2016 08:49 PM

Glad it went well. Enjoy game of thrones. I can't decide what to watch.

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 08:53 PM


There doesn't seem to be a great deal on TV tonight.

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 08:58 PM

Well done Beckie! I think sometimes giving yourself a bit of a break can actually be good for weight loss. That's what I tell myself anyway!! :P

I am now back home, back to work tomorrow! I had a lovely couple of days with my parents though.

Sketchy 27-12-2016 09:13 PM

Glad you had a lovely couple of days Hannah.

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 09:14 PM

Thanks :) How are you Lorraine?

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 09:15 PM

Thanks! It certainly seems to be! Must not get into a habit though. I'm sure it won't work if I ate like this every week :p

Glad you had a good couple of days Hannah :)

We're in that weird nothing space between Christmas and new years now.
Anyone doing anything for new years?

Sketchy 27-12-2016 09:19 PM

I'm ok thanks.

On New Years eve (or Hogmanay as it's called in Scotland) I'm going to my sister's flat. It will just be the two of us with wine and food. She sometimes works over new year so I'm glad she's got it off.

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 09:19 PM

Probably, but it's okay at Christmas!

I'm working the night shift on NYE, so probably sleeping all NY day! Are you doing anything?

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 09:20 PM

That sounds nice Lorraine! :)

Sketchy 27-12-2016 09:28 PM

It will be nice. I'm looking forward to it.

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 10:09 PM

That sounds good Lorraine :)

I never do anything for new years. I'd like to, but all my friends are off doing other things.
So I expect it will be an early night for me!!

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 10:14 PM

You can come in here and talk to me Beckie! :P

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 10:17 PM

I'm sure I will be in here quite a bit!! :p

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 10:26 PM

Yay, I'll have company! :P

Ugh I'm feeling so sorry for myself, I'm all snotty and coughy!

Cacoethes 27-12-2016 10:38 PM

Yay!!! Me too!! :p

Oh no :( lemsip and fluids for you!!

Serendipity. 27-12-2016 10:39 PM

I have no lemsip (can't stand the stuff!) but I'm drinking cider so that counts as fluids right? :P
