Hi Aubergine!

Aubergine 31-12-2017 10:32 PM

Hey Lorraine and Beckie! How's it going?

I'm OK thanks. Thinking of having a Baileys hot chocolate at some point this evening!

Sketchy 31-12-2017 10:40 PM

I’m ok thanks.

A baileys hot chocolate sounds an amazing plan!

Cacoethes 31-12-2017 10:41 PM

Bailey's hot chocolate sounds amazing!

Sketchy 31-12-2017 10:44 PM

I got a posh chocolate set filled with different chocolates and champagne truffles. It has chocolate buttons, which I’m eating just now, except they aren’t called chocolate buttons, they are called salted caramel puddles!

Aubergine 31-12-2017 10:47 PM

Ooo posh chocolates sound lovely! Salted caramel puddles? Cool! I like it.

I have told myself I must do at least a tiny bit of tidying before I am allowed my hot chocolate.

Cacoethes 31-12-2017 10:50 PM

Ooo very posh!!

Good plan aubergine.
I should probably do something like that!
My house is a tip
I have no chocolate though :(

Sketchy 31-12-2017 10:52 PM

I wish I could share my chocolates with you guys.

That’s a good plan Aubergine. I’m tidying my flat tomorrow. Part of my New Years resolution.

Cacoethes 31-12-2017 11:02 PM

Good plan Lorraine!

Aubergine 31-12-2017 11:02 PM

I wish we were eating chocolates and drinking Baileys hot chocolate together. :) It would be a nice way to see in the new year. I don't ever really get lonely, but I've got a lot on my mind at the moment and am not looking forward to at least the beginning of 2018, so some company with you guys would be lovely! Will have to settle for internet company, which isn't the same, but you're still awesome and I still enjoy sitting with you virtually.

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:05 PM

I know what you mean Aubergine. You are awesome too!

Cacoethes 31-12-2017 11:13 PM

That would be awesome, all of us spending new year together irl

You're awesome too aubergine!
I love all you guys

Aubergine 31-12-2017 11:13 PM


I still have not moved a muscle. I REALLY need to do some tidying. My flat is a state. Oops. At 22:15 I will heave myself off of my bed and break down a cardboard box or something!

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:14 PM

I love all you guys too. I don’t know where I’d be without this forum.

Not long to go.

Cacoethes 31-12-2017 11:19 PM

Me neither Lorraine!

Ive been here for about 12 years now. Scary!
Met so many awesome people.

Im getting a bit sleepy now!
I want to stay up and watch Kingsmen though because im quite enjoying it!

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:22 PM

I’m oddly wide awake.

Cacoethes 31-12-2017 11:23 PM

I think I'm going to have to give in and go to bed!

Happy New year everyone and night night!

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:28 PM

Happy new year and good night Beckie.

Aubergine 31-12-2017 11:36 PM

Night night, Beckie. Happy new year! :)

I broke down a box and washed up a few bits and now I am back on my bed with a Baileys hot chocolate and some chocolates. :)

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:39 PM

Excellent! Baileys hot chocolate sounds delicious! I’m going to have a whisky in a bit. I’m still munching on my posh chocolates.

Aubergine 31-12-2017 11:45 PM

Whisky sounds good! I like a cap full of whisky in a cup of tea. :) Mmm. Posh chocolates. Delicious! My chocolates are cheap chocolates, but they are still very tasty!

Hotel Chocolat by any chance??

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:49 PM

I’ve never had whisky in tea. I do like a whisky though.

I’m glad your chocolates are tasty. My dad and sister gave me lots of chocolates for Christmas. The posh set my sister gave me. She’s so good to me.

Urgh, I’ll need to tidy up tomorrow. I have someone coming to do the annual check on my boiler on Friday, so I better tidy up.

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:49 PM

Yes Nonperson. How did you guess?

nonperson 31-12-2017 11:52 PM

Because I'm a MASSIVE fan of Hotel Chocolat and I've had their puddles before. =D

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:54 PM

I love hotel chocolat. There’s a shop in Glasgow and I’m always tempted to go in when I’m in town centre.

Sketchy 31-12-2017 11:56 PM

My dad got me chocolate gingerbread men from there and chocolate liqueurs. I’m not short on chocolate at the moment.

nonperson 31-12-2017 11:58 PM

There's a shop here too but I haven't been in town for ages.

They often give out free samples so it's worth checking in regularly!

Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:01 AM

Ooh I like free samples! I love the chocolates with shortbread and caramel through it. I can’t remember what they are called. The champagne truffles are my absolute favourite though.

Aubergine 01-01-2018 12:03 AM

Hotel Chocolat is my favourite chocolate, but I've never had their puddles! My absolute favourite chocolate ever is the pistachio and honey milk chocolate slabs that they do. Oh they are so good! There isn't a shop where I live, but there's one in the city and I treat myself whenever I go there.

Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:05 AM

Yay, we all love hotel chocolat. That sounds yummy Aubergine.

Aubergine 01-01-2018 12:10 AM

Would it be really to have two Baileys hot chocolates? So good! You can all have one too! :D

There is an independent chocolate shop in town and I keep meaning to try it. I don't go into town very often though, but I might make it a new years resolution to pop in there. What a lovely new years resolution to have!

nonperson 01-01-2018 12:11 AM

I usually like their Christmas range. And their boxed chocolates, nom.

Didn't go in for a look this year.

Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:14 AM

That’s a fantastic resolution! Any resolution that results in chocolate is a good one.

Their boxed chocolates are delicious!

Aubergine 01-01-2018 12:15 AM

What kind of things do they usually do for Christmas, Person?

Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:15 AM

Also, yes, have another baileys hot chocolate. I’d love one too!

nonperson 01-01-2018 12:22 AM

Usually just nice little snowmen on sticks, that kinda thing! And christmas dessert chocolates. Just good stuff for gifting.

Oooooh, it's all reduced on their website...!!! O.O


Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:24 AM

My dad got me those toasted toddy’s chocolates. Ooh, yum, reduced price.

nonperson 01-01-2018 12:26 AM

Oh dear God, I should not have looked.

Chocolate truffle christmas tree.... portly penguins... winter chocolate pudding box... salted caramel and clementine hot chocolate... alternative mince pies.

Aubergine 01-01-2018 12:26 AM


Look! Surprise chocolate!

nonperson 01-01-2018 12:29 AM

Ooooh nice.

I was looking at this: http://www.hotelchocolat.com/uk/the-...sz=90&start=86

Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:30 AM

Aubergine that looks so good!!!!

I loooooooooooooove chocolate!!!

Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:30 AM

Now that’s a nice hamper!

The set my sister gave me came with a mini bottle of prosecco.

Aubergine 01-01-2018 12:33 AM

Oh wow! That is a LOT of chocolate! :D


I like this one too!

nonperson 01-01-2018 12:33 AM

Oooh fancy. =P

Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:34 AM

That’s a nice wreath!

Aubergine 01-01-2018 12:39 AM

ALL of the chocolate! I hope I have lovely dreams of amazing chocolate now.

Sketchy 01-01-2018 12:41 AM

Chocolate is the best!

It’s nearly new year! I’ve just poured my whisky. My dad will likely phone after midnight because he knows I’m awake.

nonperson 01-01-2018 12:45 AM

My mum always tries to stay up and does something random like sewing/art that she enjoys because she says she likes to start the year as she means to go on.

I'm tempted to go play piano after the fireworks and actually make it a resolution to learn an entire song in 2018.

Aubergine 01-01-2018 12:45 AM

It is nearly new year! I will get my Baileys hot chocolate ready and we can toast... :) Nice that your Dad will ring after midnight.

My little sister just sent me a text message saying happy new year and that she's really proud of me and she thinks I'm the best person and that she wishes that she was more like me. She's so lovely.
