I’m sleepy. Couldn’t sleep last night. I’m just relaxing for a bit then I’m going out for a coffee. Trying not to hide away.

How are you?

[Luna] 23-11-2017 03:33 PM

Sorry you didn’t sleep lovely. I hope you manage to have a nice time when you’re out.

I’m tired too. Disappointed I have to go on meds but that’s life.

Sketchy 23-11-2017 03:35 PM

It must be disappointing. I’m sorry. I hope the meds help.

Do you have anything else planned for the day?

[Luna] 23-11-2017 03:39 PM

No, I can’t wait to go home and rest.

Eska 23-11-2017 03:40 PM

*hugs* for those who want them

Sketchy 23-11-2017 03:41 PM

Hey Eska, how are you?

Eska 23-11-2017 04:06 PM

Hi Lorraine :) I’m ok, enjoying having a day off and catching up with one of my housemates and his sister.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 04:14 PM

Hey guys
Finished college
There are reindeer in the town centre!

[Luna] 23-11-2017 05:10 PM

Wow, I take it's there on purpose and hasn't escaped from somewhere lol

I'm finally home. *collapses*

Sketchy 23-11-2017 05:38 PM

I fell asleep. Won’t be going out for coffee after all.

Reindeer are cute.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 05:45 PM

Yep its on purpose luna :p
Its the big light switch on tonight so there's lots of random christmas type stuff about

Im finally home.
Absolutely shattered!

[Luna] 23-11-2017 05:50 PM

Wow, early for Christmas lights?

Do you feel better for the sleep Lorraine?

Sketchy 23-11-2017 05:53 PM

No, I just feel guilty for not making it outside. I don’t want to go out now in the dark. Oh well.

What’s everyone doing this evening? I’ve nothing planned.

[Luna] 23-11-2017 05:56 PM

Try not to feel guilty lovely, there's always tomorrow.

I haven't got anything planned for this evening either.

Sketchy 23-11-2017 05:58 PM

That’s true. I’ll try tomorrow.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 06:05 PM

Christmas lights in my town are going on Friday :/

As Luna said, no need to feel guilty!
You can go tomorrow

[Luna] 23-11-2017 06:09 PM

But it's still November!

Have you got any plans this evening Beckie?

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 06:25 PM

I knoowww!!
Im tempted to go to the switch on here on friday because ive never been to one.
But there's going to be street food and I LOVE street food but I'm trying to stick to plan this week!

I have nothing planned.
Im so tired!
How about you?

Sketchy 23-11-2017 06:28 PM

The Christmas lights in Glasgow have already been switched on. Can’t believe it’s that time of year already.

Another cold night. I hope everyone is warm.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 06:30 PM

I'm probably going to get my little tinsel tree down at some point.

Ive just put the heating on!

Sketchy 23-11-2017 06:31 PM

I’m putting my heating on too.

Cpt_Stunning 23-11-2017 06:56 PM

it's not really cold here, no wind or rain, we don't have control over the heating, when it drops below a certain temperature, the heating comes on, dunno what that is though, the heating's not on, so not really cold.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 06:57 PM

Its been really windy here

Sketchy 23-11-2017 07:00 PM

It’s not windy here, just really cold. We’re supposed to get snow tomorrow, but it’s also going to rain tomorrow so not expecting it to be thick with snow.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 07:20 PM

Snow?!
Its rained a bit here today.
Horrible blustery rain!
Supposed to be fairly ok tomorrow.
We shall see!

Sketchy 23-11-2017 07:25 PM

They’ve been saying for a while that it’s going to snow, but it’s yet to happen. Or if it has there’s been no layer of snow.

Cpt_Stunning 23-11-2017 07:35 PM

there hasn't been heavy snow here since December 2010, I slipped up on Christmas eve, eye purple & closed over on Christmas Day, didn't feel as though I slipped & head hit the pavement, felt as though the pavement came up & hit my head, people got tissues for me & helped me. No grit or people with shovels clearing the snow when it did snow, because doesn't happen very often, then it turned to ice, I knew a woman who broke her hip.

Sketchy 23-11-2017 07:47 PM

That sounds awful Chris.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 07:49 PM

Ouch! That sounds horrible!

Cpt_Stunning 23-11-2017 07:50 PM

I've still got the scar above my eye, I remember reading that the winter was going to be harsh, an Arctic Blast, or the newspapers called it 'The beast from the east'.

Sketchy 23-11-2017 07:57 PM

They’ve been saying that this is going to be a bad winter. It’s already feels cold enough.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 07:58 PM

They've been saying its going to be the worst winter in x years for about 5 years now
Hasn't happened yet!

Sketchy 23-11-2017 08:02 PM

I think this is going to be a cold winter. I’m struggling with it being cold. I’m like an old woman!

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 08:05 PM

Haha!
Its been less cold this week though

Sketchy 23-11-2017 08:06 PM

Not here it isn’t. :(
Maybe I should move away to somewhere warmer. I just need to find that thing called money to do so!

Cpt_Stunning 23-11-2017 08:10 PM

But you'd miss your sister though

Sketchy 23-11-2017 08:11 PM

That’s true. I’ll just have to wear more layers and deal with it. Might get my hot water bottles out.

Cpt_Stunning 23-11-2017 08:14 PM

Where would you most like to live, I spent 3 months in Spain in 1996 working as a translator, possibly the best 3 months of my life, could've stayed longer but got really homesick.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 08:17 PM

Where I live its been quite mild

I like Spain
Used to go there every summer and some half terms.
The fam have a villa out there so they go a lot still

Sketchy 23-11-2017 08:19 PM

I don’t know where I’d like to live. I love living in Glasgow, and I like the area I’m in, but I wouldn’t mind somewhere a bit warmer. Not too hot though. I’m rubbish in hot weather too. No pleasing me!

Cpt_Stunning 23-11-2017 08:22 PM

That's really nice, the place I stayed was a city called La Coruna in the North West of Spain, been back there twice, been to a city called Santander in the North-East of Spain a few times on the ferry - 20 hours - but south of Spain's probably different, loads of ex-pats maybe.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 08:26 PM

That sounds lovely.
Our villa is in the province of Alicante.
Lovely place in the mountains with a little village at the bottom of the mountain. Its not touristy at all which is nice.

Im not good in hot weather either Lorraine!
We had a pool at the villa which is how i coped!

Sketchy 23-11-2017 08:31 PM

That sounds nice going to Spain regularly. I’ve never been before.

I’ve just filled my hot water bottles, so hopefully I’ll heat up soon.

Cpt_Stunning 23-11-2017 08:38 PM

I'm quite lucky, because the ferry port's about 2 miles away from me, with ferries going to France & Spain, I'll probably go to France next time for a bit, shorter ferry journey, got too sea-sick on my last visit to Spain.

The ferry to Spain is huge, I see all these cars waiting to get onto the ferry, that's the only way people can take their cars to Spain, & when I get to Spain I see them all drive off.

Sketchy 23-11-2017 08:40 PM

I’ve been to the north of France. It’s lovely. I was in jersey and we took a day trip to France.

Cpt_Stunning 23-11-2017 08:44 PM

It's getting late, really need to go downstairs & have dinner, bye.

Sketchy 23-11-2017 08:50 PM

Enjoy your dinner.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 08:52 PM

France is lovely also!
When we were younger, we'd get the ferry to france and then drive through france to spain, stopping over to camp in various places along the way.
I miss our family holidays.

Enioy your dinner!

Sketchy 23-11-2017 08:54 PM

That sounds lovely Beckie. We never had many family holidays, although we are doing it now. I’m going to Amsterdam next year with my sister, Dad and uncle. I’m also going to Oban in March with my sister, so I’m lucky.

Cacoethes 23-11-2017 08:59 PM

That sounds cool!
Amsterdam looks like a lovely place
