I haven't had it in so many years! Since i was in Scotland!!

Sketchy 12-07-2017 09:58 PM

Does Asda not sell it where you are?

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 10:01 PM

Im sure it does.
I kind of go into autopilot when im in there and don't notice anything!

Sketchy 12-07-2017 10:03 PM

I'm easily distracted in Asda and end up buying all sorts of random stuff. I wish I could just stick to my list and go.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 10:04 PM

I tend to go down the same aisles in the same order. I don't even realise that im doing it!!

Sketchy 12-07-2017 10:07 PM

Our Asda has George upstairs and I always have to look through there. And I like to go to the cafe first for a pizza slice.

Shy_Bambi 12-07-2017 10:16 PM

Our clothes section is tiny, and it's majority baby clothes for some reason so I never go there. I always go down the same isles too! Going into another isle not on my list would make me super uncomfortable.

Cacoethes 12-07-2017 10:18 PM

We have a clothing bit and like aisles for all the home ware and technology and kitchen stuff.
There's some nice things down those aisles but i rarely go down rhere because I'll end up spending loads!
I wish ours had a cafe!

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 10:51 AM

Good morning everyone! It's all sunny and hot again, boo!

not_so_insig 13-07-2017 11:15 AM

It's what I call "nice pussycat weather" ie just the right sort of weather for pussycats to be outside. If it was horrible outside then I would refer it as "nasty pussycat weather" ie just the sort of weather for pussycats to be inside.

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 11:25 AM

I think I'm just sensitive to the sun in general because it looks like nasty pussycat weather to me at the moment.

not_so_insig 13-07-2017 11:35 AM

It's sunny here and warm. Also I have received a email from Mike.

chinahorse 13-07-2017 11:44 AM

Morning guys :)

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 12:05 PM


chinahorse 13-07-2017 12:19 PM

How are we all? Anyone doing anything exciting?

Today is my quiet day here. I'm hoping to see the gp though. And I've rearranged the furniture in my room and it's made the energy in here so much better.

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 12:29 PM

That sounds good Lillie! My room is a tip at the moment, it's full of stuff I'm trying to sell on eBay

I'm trying to memorize what we learnt in college yesterday, I have to learn it by tomorrow. Stress! xD

Good morning Beckie! How are you?

chinahorse 13-07-2017 01:54 PM

All the stuff I'm a selling is in a few black bags. Keeps it tidy.

What techniques are you trying?

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 02:14 PM

Im waiting for bus to mums. Still have 15 mins wait.
And im also wrangling a helium balloon and it is windy!!

chinahorse 13-07-2017 02:21 PM

Those balloons are a nightmare at the best of times. Is it jasmine birthday?

Eska 13-07-2017 02:35 PM

Have fun with that Beckie :P

I'm trying to get some reading done. Managed a novella yesterday but it was hard work.

Techniques? :blink: I'm just putting up everything I want to sell. Books, Pokemon cards, LPs, toys etc

I haven't had a helium balloon since I was like 5 Beckie, sounds fun!

Eska 13-07-2017 02:43 PM

I think Lillie meant revision techniques?

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 02:51 PM

Oh!! xD sorry. Flashcards :3

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 03:05 PM

Yep it is Jasmine's birthday!

Flash cards are good!
What course are you doing?

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 03:29 PM

Oh that's nice! Happy birthday her :D

I'm doing a Korean course. Have a lot of vocab to learn.

Eska 13-07-2017 03:58 PM

Beckie I hope you have a lovely time with her!

Rebecca that sounds fascinating!

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 04:06 PM

Me and a brother are going to pick her up from school soon. We've blown up lots of balloons and mum and sister are going to get party food!
And a caterpillar cake which is tradition in our family!

Korean sounds awesome! Id love to learn a language like that!

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 04:21 PM

I've never had a birthday party but that sounds so fun!! Are you playing pass the parcel and stuff? :D

I'm also learning Tagalog, because my dad is married to a Filipino and she's helping me

not_so_insig 13-07-2017 06:11 PM

I have had a productive day so far. Been for my weekly walk around the park, been to the sorting office and been for coffee. We were talking about funerals. I got my 5 years free present to myself. I still haven't decided what to get for my 6 years free present.

Eska 13-07-2017 06:42 PM

That does sound productive! Five years free is incredible, what did you get yourself?

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 07:28 PM

Just waiting for bus home now.
I am shattered!
We all had a good time!

5 years free is awesome dawn. Well done!

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 08:10 PM

Congrats on 5 years free Dawn!! I hope you got yourself something special!

Welcome back Beckie, glad you had fun!!

not_so_insig 13-07-2017 08:38 PM

I am actually 6 years free! it's just that the company making my present wasn't taking orders for ages. They are taking orders now it's just that they were swamped with orders it's taken this long to make it.

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 09:08 PM

Im home now. So shattered!

Oh wow 6 years is great!! Well done!

not_so_insig 13-07-2017 09:35 PM

Thanks Beckie. I actually post updates on how I am doing in the SH discussion part of the board. I actually have done well in other parts of my life too.

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 09:43 PM

I never go on that part of the forum. Don't know why!!

Sketchy 13-07-2017 10:25 PM

Hey how is everyone?

I just had dinner at my sister's which was nice. I fell up the stairs leading to my flat going home and now have sore knees. Such an idiot.

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 10:27 PM

Hi Lorraine!
Dinner sounds nice!
I fall up the stairs all the time! Lol!

Sketchy 13-07-2017 10:30 PM

I don't know how it happened. One minute I'm walking upstairs and then the next minute splat!

Did Jasmine enjoy her birthday?

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 10:32 PM

It just happens sometimes i guess!

Yes she did thanks! We had a lovely time :)

Sketchy 13-07-2017 10:34 PM

Glad you both enjoyed yourselves. Is she five now? Seems like not long ago she was a baby.

Sketchy 13-07-2017 10:35 PM

Congratulations Dawn. And congratulations Jenna too. That's an excellent achievement.

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 10:36 PM

Yep she is 5! Getting so grown up now.

Congratulations Jenna!!

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 10:42 PM

I've fallen up the stairs before and got carpet burns. These are the stairs in my house which I've been in since I was born, how can I miss them, honestly xD so yeah you're not alone with that Lorraine!

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 10:44 PM


Ive always envied people who have been in the same house or even area since they were born.
Ive had to move sooooo many times!!

Sketchy 13-07-2017 10:47 PM

I stayed in the same flat until I was 19 and then moved into a house. Since living alone I've moved quite a few times. Been in this flat for 4 and a half years, which is the longest.

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 10:53 PM

Oh goodness I could never imagine moving from here. I know I will have to one day, but the thought of it absolutely terrifies me!!!

Sketchy 13-07-2017 10:56 PM

It sounds like you and your mum are happy living together, so there's no rush to change it. I've been living alone for 10 years, so I've gotten too used to it.

Shy_Bambi 13-07-2017 11:00 PM

Yeah to be honest I couldn't live without her. I guess I'm a bit too dependant on her to be honest. I don't think I could live on my own. I need someone there, you know? Hard to explain

I'm going for a bath before bed! I have college tomorrow *stress*

Cacoethes 13-07-2017 11:00 PM

The one place my family did stay for about 12 years? But i spent most of that in different hospitals around the country so it doesnt really count!
Ive been living alone for about 5 years now (3 years in current house) and i couldn't imagine living with someone else now!
I like where i live now and im hoping I'll be able to stay here for a long time! Landlord in last house sold it so im always worried that they'll decide to sell the house!

Im off to bed now guys.
Night night!!
