Is it a class you enjoy beckie?

Hey aubergine. Anything that helps with the anxiety?
Ooo seeing friends and getting away for a bit sounds lovely.

I'm trying to summon the strength to walk to town and the post office. It needs doing today but I'm so tired and sore. I'm an idiot for moving to a place with no easy buses.

not_so_insig 08-03-2018 03:04 PM

I have been for my walk around the park at the bottom of the road. First time I have been for ages though with the combination of the weather and my friend deciding to meet on a Thursday for coffee.

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 04:19 PM

Thanks Aubergine!

It was English.
It did end up being quite fun as we had to do a 'human knot' so we stood in a circle and held the hands of other people and then tried to undo ourselves without letting go!
Its impossible but it was a good laugh!

Sorry you're feeling anxious Aubergine.
Seeing your friends sounds good though!

That's a shame Lillie.
Once its done you'll be able to relax a bit?

Pomegranate 08-03-2018 05:25 PM

That sounds fun Beckie!

Sorry you’re not feeling great Aubergine

Hope town goes ok Lillie

My social worker called half an hour ago to say she’d be coming round at 4.30, my flat was a **** hole! Never moved so quick in my life. It’s still a complete mess but at least almost within normal standards!!

chinahorse 08-03-2018 05:37 PM

Sounds good beckie. You off home now?

Well done emma, even if you didn't choose to tidy yourself lol

Made it to town and back ok. Now in my pj's and waiting for prn painkillers to kick in. Should ring my cpn but I'm waiting to see if she cares enough to call me.

wildly insane 08-03-2018 05:40 PM

oh dear, sounds like some people are having tough days, hugs if you like them.

I've got an hour left of work and my brain has just flopped down in a huff and told me it's not functioning any more!

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 05:49 PM

Yep I am home now
Impulsively bought a chocolate orange
I really need to stay off them but they are so good!

Well done for tidying Emma!
Hope it goes ok with your social worker

Well done Lillie
Really hope the painkillers help

Hey wildly insane!
You can do it!!

wildly insane 08-03-2018 05:51 PM

ooh I love chocolate orange flavour
I'll get there!
It's such a long week this week :P

nonperson 08-03-2018 06:55 PM

Seems quiet around here lately...

chinahorse 08-03-2018 07:01 PM

Chocolate orange is amazing! Omnom.

nonperson 08-03-2018 07:10 PM

I thought you could only buy them at Christmas... Am I wrong?

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 07:11 PM

It has been quite quiet in here!

Nope you can get them all the time!
Unfortunately for me :p

nonperson 08-03-2018 07:12 PM

Now that I have that knowledge it might be unfortunate for me as well...!

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:17 PM

I'm not even going to enter into the chocolate orange argument again :P

I've just utterly confused my dog as it's dark and I was engrossed in a film so haven't put the light on yet and I've accidental balanced a magazine and phone on her head, mistaking her for sofa/blanket :P

nonperson 08-03-2018 07:21 PM

Poor dog! Did she stay still and let you do it? =)

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 07:30 PM

You aren't allowed to talk about chocolate oranges buttons :p

Haha! Poor doggo

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:30 PM

Yes, I only realised when she snorted :P

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:30 PM

Fine, then you're banned from chocolate buttons. So there :P

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 07:35 PM

You cant ban me!!

nonperson 08-03-2018 07:36 PM

Oooh, why does round flattened chocolate taste so good?

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:37 PM

Oh yeah? Watch me. MWA HA HA

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:37 PM

Because all the best things are button shaped.

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 07:40 PM

Chocolate is just amazing in general!

nonperson 08-03-2018 07:41 PM

Can't argue with that. =)

Edit: Ha, that was a reply to Buttons' comment but it applies equally to yours as well, Beckie!

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 07:44 PM

I don't think I could even pin point a favourite choclate.
Its all good!
I do have a thing for chocolate orange atm though

Favourite chocolate guys?

nonperson 08-03-2018 07:52 PM


Uhm... anything Lindt. =)

I'm going to be the Lindt Master Chocolatier one day, you know.

Orrrr mini eggs. Or chocolate orange. Or... Green & Blacks if I'm feeling fancy.

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:54 PM

Galaxy <3

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:54 PM

Lindt is also nommy.

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:54 PM

And malteasers.

Buttons. 08-03-2018 07:55 PM

And Minstrels.

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 07:55 PM

I love the lidnt truffle things!!
And galaxy is also really good!

Its impossible to pick just one isnt it!

nonperson 08-03-2018 07:55 PM

Definitely Maltesers!

I used to get Green & Blacks cherry dark chocolate but it doesn't seem to exist any more. =(

nonperson 08-03-2018 07:56 PM

Oh my ****ing god, Minstrels!

chinahorse 08-03-2018 07:58 PM

My fav fluctuates on a day to day basis. And at work is whatever blends easily and doesn't need chopping.

Buttons. 08-03-2018 08:00 PM

nonperson 08-03-2018 08:01 PM

I was going to go to the supermarket tonight... Not sure I should now... You know what's gonna end up in my basket. =)

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 08:08 PM

Its so hard to resist!

nonperson 08-03-2018 08:19 PM

I probably will resist. I don't crave or binge on chocolate as much as I used to. Tend to go for more savoury things nowadays...

Must be something seriously wrong with me. =)

Buttons. 08-03-2018 08:31 PM

I'm more a savoury person as well Np.

chinahorse 08-03-2018 08:36 PM

I'm a food person lol :D

But crisps omnomnom

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 08:38 PM

Same Lillie!
Im a food person :p

Although not big on crisps particularly

Buttons. 08-03-2018 08:41 PM

Cheese and meat are my big temptations-I'm basically a veggie/vegan's nightmare :P

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 08:43 PM

Cheese and meat are good!!
A nice spag bol drowned in cheese!

Buttons. 08-03-2018 08:45 PM

Damn you Beckie now all I want is spag bol!

zombiehunter 08-03-2018 08:46 PM

I had a mixed grill in the pub tonight :-D

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 08:53 PM

I might have to make a spag bol tomorrow!
Unfortunately cheese isnt very slimming world friendly but you can have some cheese!
Just not an entire block which is how much I would put on if I could....

Sounds nice zombie!!

Damn. Now I'm hungry again.

zombiehunter 08-03-2018 09:11 PM

it's my wee niece's birthday today and we went out for dinner, my wee niece is now 10 :-O

Cacoethes 08-03-2018 09:18 PM

Aww they grow up so fast!

Sketchy 08-03-2018 09:56 PM

Hey all. How is everyone?

I got back from Oban yesterday. Had a good time, but it took it out of me.

nonperson 08-03-2018 10:02 PM

Holidaying is always really tiring for some reason.

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 12:35 AM.
