Hugs back.

Costa does have some comfy chairs. What drink did you get?

Aubergine 21-03-2017 05:07 PM


I got a strawberry creamy cooler. Completely off of the slimming world plan! It's yummy though.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 05:09 PM

The creamy coolers are so nice!!
I haven't had one in ages. I used to get the white chocolate and (I think) raspberry.

chinahorse 21-03-2017 05:30 PM

Ooo sounds yummy. The white chocolate one especially.

I've had a caramel frappe today which was lovely.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 05:32 PM

I'm ok thanks. How is everyone?

I've just been on a walk and now having a cup of tea.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 05:32 PM

Glad you are free aubergine.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 05:42 PM

Caramel frappe sounds yummy Lillie!

Hi Lorraine! Did you enjoy your walk?

Sketchy 21-03-2017 05:45 PM

I did enjoy my walk. I had my music on (foo fighters), and it's not raining for once here. I walked to a shop to buy peaches but they had none. I really want peaches for some reason. I got chopped mango though. I'm looking forward to that.

What you up to?

chinahorse 21-03-2017 05:47 PM

Oh thats dissapointtinh but mango is a good substitute lorraine. Glad you had a nice walk.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 05:50 PM

Hi Lillie. What you up to?

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 05:56 PM

Mango is lovely! Probably my favourite fruit.

I'm watching another x men movie.
Got slimming world tonight and I have pizza and garlic bread for afterwards!
I was gonna get a takeaway but can't really afford it and asda pizzas are nice anyway! So I'm looking forward to dinner!

chinahorse 21-03-2017 05:59 PM

I'm just mingling in the lounge waiting till its my time to cook. I and another girl are making sausages two types of mash and peas and broccoli. I cba but it'll be ok once I get in there.

Ooo sounds yummy beckie. X men is good. Which one?

Sketchy 21-03-2017 06:01 PM

Takeaway can be expensive, but Asda pizzas are nice. That will be a nice treat to have after slimming world.
I like mango, but it can be a pain to chop up, so I was lazy and got the ready chopped stuff. I'll enjoy that later.
I've never watched the x men films apart from the very first one, where I was on a date to the cinema. I think it was the first one. It was many years ago.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 06:01 PM

That sounds yummy Lillie. I love mash potato. Such comfort food.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 06:04 PM

Sausage mash and veg is a good meal Lillie! I have it quite a lot!
Its x men: first class.

I always get the pre chopped mango! Cutting it up is effort! I cut up a butternut squash recently. It was such hard work!!

There are loads of x men films. They can get quite confusing because the latest ones are mainly prequels so I can never quite be sure which goes where!!
I love them though!

chinahorse 21-03-2017 06:05 PM

Cinema dates are weird. Like you go on a date to talk to each other which you can't do in a cinema!

It is the best comfort food. I just ceeb to cook for 10 people.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 06:06 PM

Butternut squash is a nightmare to cut up. Cutting up turnip is the worse though.

I don't know what I'll watch later.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 06:07 PM

I know, it's all very awkward. We only lasted about 4 months.

chinahorse 21-03-2017 06:09 PM

But all of them taste so good to eat and are worth the effort of chopping them up.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 06:12 PM

That's true Lillie. I'm just very lazy.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 06:14 PM

The best date I went on was to an epic indoor crazy golf course. Still had time to chat and because of the golf there was something to talk about so no awkward silences!

They are definitely worth the effort of cutting them up!! It's a good workout as well :p

Sketchy 21-03-2017 06:15 PM

That sounds like a fun place to go on a date. I've never been to crazy golf.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 06:51 PM

It's a lot of fun!
The one near me is especially good as it's all themed and there's an ultraviolet light section so the golf balls looked like they were glowing! I'm easily pleased!

Aubergine 21-03-2017 06:52 PM

I'm home. :)

I love crazy golf so much. It's my summer fun thing to do. :)

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 07:05 PM

Yay for being home!! :-D

It is a lot of fun! I'm so bad at it though! Well, I was last time I went. Before that I was mediocre!

chinahorse 21-03-2017 07:13 PM

Yay for being home!

Wow that sounds a lot of fun beckie! Especially the uv bit.

The person I'm cooking with has refused to come down so I'm cooking meat for the first time in years. Just sausages but still.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 07:17 PM

It is!

Ugh! That's so annoying! It's so not fair on you.
Could you ask someone else to handle the meat bit?

Sketchy 21-03-2017 07:27 PM

Glad you are home aubergine.

Lillie, that's not fair. I wouldn't even know how to cook meat.

not_so_insig 21-03-2017 08:36 PM

I agree as you have to be uber careful with meat I would get someone else to do it.

I had paella for tea. Unfortunately as I misjudged the size of pan needed a lot went over the cooker. It was nice though.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 08:48 PM

I always get paella all over the place when I cook it!

Sketchy 21-03-2017 09:00 PM

Glad you enjoyed it Dawn.

It's cold tonight. Some parts of Scotland had snow this morning. My friend sent me a snowy photo of his town. It's hard to believe it's march.

chinahorse 21-03-2017 09:03 PM

I got peas all over the cooker too lol. Oops. I just stuck the sausages in the oven for the alloted time and it went ok. I mean Im no Gordon ramsay but I'm pleased with myself.

Wow I didn't think it was that cold lorraine. But we'll I suppose I do live near London in the week.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 09:04 PM

It is very cold! I can't imagine snow though! Wow!

Well done for doing it Lillie!

Sketchy 21-03-2017 09:08 PM

I'm glad the cooking went ok. I still think it was unfair of that person to leave you alone with it.

Yes, it's cold up here. I've got my heating on.

chinahorse 21-03-2017 09:21 PM

The circumstances were hard for her though.

We made here put the heating back on lol as it was freezing without it and they told us off.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 09:24 PM

That's rubbish. You need heating in this weather. It's too cold without it.

chinahorse 21-03-2017 09:33 PM

Well it's cos it's boiling in here with the heating on and freeing with it off.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 09:35 PM

It's really cold outside but inside is bearable without heating on.

I forgot I have a pre op appointment tomorrow morning. So now I'm gonna have to shower and get up at 6am :plain:
I'd be ok if I had remembered earlier and planned for it but now it feels all uncomfortable now it's the evening and I've remembered I feel all weird about it.
Just one of my quirks I suppose!

Sketchy 21-03-2017 09:36 PM

That's annoying when there is no in between. I wish my flat would hurry and heat up. I should have put the heating on earlier.

Sketchy 21-03-2017 09:37 PM

That's an early start Beckie. I hope you get a good nights sleep for it.

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 09:42 PM

Thanks Lorraine. Appointment is at 9:50. I should get there early enough to grab a coffee before the appointment which will be much needed I imagine!

chinahorse 21-03-2017 09:43 PM

Eek that is early beckie!

Cacoethes 21-03-2017 09:47 PM

Yep!! Stupid irregular buses!!
And I'll have to pay for the bus as well because it's before 9:30. :plain:
Although I do always try my bus pass and look shocked when it doesn't work and sometimes the driver will let me on anyway :p

not_so_insig 21-03-2017 11:45 PM

It was very cold here today.

Also Countryfile is from my part of the country on Sunday so I demand that you watch it and see what views I have. They filmed part of it in my parents village.

The bus pass time rules are ridiculous-I always feel like saying 'oh wow my disability is turned off before 9? Cool!'

Hope you have time for your coffee and appointment goes well *Hugs*

I'm OK thanks. I slept so well. :)

[Luna] 22-03-2017 08:48 AM

It took me ages to get to sleep but once I was off I slept through which is always good. I'm so pleased you slept well! Are you home now?
