Oh no! Poor Beckie. What day is your birthday?

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 04:41 PM

It's on Monday.
Chris is coming to mine tomorrow and then I'm going to hers for the weekend and we're going to do something for it so I hope I don't feel too ill!
And college tomorrow too.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 04:48 PM

Yay. That will be fun. I hope you don’t get ill. Take it easy and take lemsips.

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 04:49 PM

I like the Costas in the place where my parents live because they've got chairs & tables outside so you can have a cigarette, plus it's a lot quieter than town.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 04:52 PM

Thanks Lorraine :)

That's good cpt!
Theres a coffee shop near me that has heat lamps and blankets outside which is awesome.
Especially appreciated it when I was a smoker!

Sketchy 04-10-2017 04:58 PM

Hi Chris. You’ll be pleased to know I managed to get some fabric that is a little more manly for your bag. My other fabric was too girly.

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 05:12 PM

Cool, it's good that you got out today, & have hobbies, I just mostly watch short or full movies on the net, mostly YouTube, do some volunteering too, but don't have a proper hobby as such.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 05:20 PM

Volunteering is good. I’m glad I have this hobby. It’s a good distraction and I enjoy making them.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 05:20 PM

Is it volunteering in the cat home?

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 05:22 PM

Yes, Saturdays, often other days if I have day day off work.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 05:23 PM

That’s such a nice thing to do.

not_so_insig 04-10-2017 05:55 PM

My new nurse didn't come today because she's sick. Instead I got the nurse she replaced.

I have been swimming today and it was a very annoying bus ride on the way there. It stopped at every single stop. Including ones that it doesn't normally stop at.

I feel much better than yesterday flu wise. I feel near normal.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 05:56 PM

Glad you are feeling better Dawn. Did you have a good swim?

I’m on train home. Finished my shopping.

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 06:01 PM

That's cool, I don't take the train, too close to the city centre, I know people who live outside of the city get the train here, so convenient.

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 06:02 PM

Thinking about it, next time I go shopping, I may take the train to another town.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 06:03 PM

I like the train. There are plenty of buses that go into town too but I prefer the train. It’s quicker too.

not_so_insig 04-10-2017 06:09 PM

Yes I had a good swim thanks Lorraine. Apart from there's this annoying person who is sometimes there. She tells everyone that they need to lose weight and that they should join weight watchers. She interupts people's conversations and tries to talk to you all the time. When I go swimming I like to be left alone. One of these days I am going to tell her to **** off because being rude is the only way to get her to leave you alone. It was one of those days she was there.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 06:29 PM

You should tell her to f*ck off!!
That's just plain rude!

Sketchy 04-10-2017 06:40 PM

She sounds a nightmare. I’d tell her to mind her business. So rude!

Glad you still had a good swim though.

I’m home now. The weather here is miserable so I’m glad to be back in my flat.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 06:41 PM

Glad you're home!
The weather here isn't great either.

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 06:44 PM

It's always good to get home when the weather's bad, I got soaked the other day, best part of the day, was getting home & changed.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 06:44 PM

I got soaked, so I’ve already changed into my pyjamas. Nice and comfy now. I still can’t believe I went into town. I nearly cancelled and had to force myself. Feeling a bit pleased that I managed it. Plus I now have lots of sewing stuff to be getting on with. That will keep me out of mischief. :)

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 06:45 PM

Nothing better than changing in to warm dry clothes after getting soaked!

I got my cosy jumper out of the tumble dryer earlier and its all soft and warm!

Sketchy 04-10-2017 06:47 PM

That must be so nice. I think I’ll be digging out the onesies soon.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 06:56 PM

Definitely getting into onesie season!!

Sketchy 04-10-2017 06:59 PM

What you up to this evening?

I’m just going to relax. I have house work and the cinema tomorrow and then Friday I’m staying over with my sister where I’ll get some sewing done. I’ll need to work into my paintings. They’ve been a bit neglected. I have life drawing on Monday, so I’m quite busy for me.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 07:02 PM

I'm just watching Doctor who and drinking tea.

Sounds like you're going to be busy!
What are you seeing at the cinema?

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 07:03 PM

I'm watching Tom Petty songs on YouTube

Sketchy 04-10-2017 07:04 PM

They are showing hamlet, the one benedict cumberbatch was in. Love benedict! I’m going with my dad.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 07:04 PM

That’s a shame about Tom Petty. So sad.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 07:04 PM

Ah that sounds cool lorraine!

I don't think i know who tom petty is

Sketchy 04-10-2017 07:06 PM

He’s a musician who passed away recently. He’s influenced a lot of rock musicians.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 07:11 PM

Ah ok.
Always sad when someone so influential passes away.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 07:16 PM

It is indeed.


What doctor who are you onto? I like the ones with Donna Noble.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 07:24 PM

Still Tennant. Just finished the Martha ones and now its Donna!

Cpt_Stunning 04-10-2017 07:26 PM

My favourite song of Tom Petty was 'Don't come around here no more' , over 12 million views on YouTube, & it wasn't even in the top 20 of his best songs.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 07:28 PM

The Donna ones are the best.

Chris I’ll need to have a look on YouTube.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 07:39 PM

I like Martha best I think.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 07:44 PM

I like the ones with Martha, the master and captain jack. They were good episodes.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 07:48 PM

Those are the ones I've just finished watching!
I <3 captain Jack!
He's the main reason I like torchwood so much.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 07:50 PM

I love torchwood. I wish they would put it on Netflix or on tv.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 07:53 PM

I have them all downloaded.
Managed to do it before virgin media told me off for pirating....

Sketchy 04-10-2017 07:56 PM

I don’t know why it’s not shown on tv. It’s a good show. And they repeat plenty of other random stuff.

I can’t believe it’s nearly 8pm already. Where has the time gone? I did go out late in the day though.

Netflix has put more episodes of the Big Bang theory on, and many of them I’ve not seen, so I might watch that.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 08:05 PM

I know! Torchwood was great, I don't know why they don't show it again.

I quite like big bang theory.
There are new episodes coming soon I think

not_so_insig 04-10-2017 08:09 PM

They should have a bbc classic channel so that much loved old programmes get an airing. Some of the comedies are available on gold but not everyone can afford paid channels.

My cat sounds awful with his cold. I made an appointment with the vet on Friday so hopefully he will be back to his old self next week.

Sketchy 04-10-2017 08:10 PM

Oh no. Your poor kitty. I hope he gets better soon.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 08:16 PM

They show some old programmes on Drama. Like the Bill and really old episodes of casualty and last of the summer wine and other stuff.

Hope your cat gets better soon Dawn.
Looks like even the animals are getting this cold!!

Sketchy 04-10-2017 08:19 PM

Everyone is getting the cold it would seem. Mine is starting to get better. Just a bit of a cough now and a bit of nausea, but I’m much better than I was.

Urgh, I need to do housework tomorrow before the cinema. I’d do some tonight but being in town was tiring.

Cacoethes 04-10-2017 08:21 PM

That's good that youre much better!

Im actually feeling better now. Hope it lasts!

Housework is a pain!
Got to be done though!

Sketchy 04-10-2017 08:23 PM

It is a pain. It’s got rather messy around my easel, so if I want to paint I’ll have to clear up. It’s so boring though. I’ll probably put my new foo fighters album on while tidying. Very excited about it. The album, not the tidying!
