Cider is nice!
I have to be in the mood for beer.
Always up for a shandy though! So refreshing!
I had a glass of white and a glass of prosecco at my brothers birthday meal.

Sketchy 09-04-2017 08:56 PM

Ooh I had prosecco last night with my sister. It was awesome. Such a nice treat.

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 08:59 PM

I love prosecco! It is a nice treat!

What's everyone up to this week?

Sketchy 09-04-2017 09:02 PM

This week I'm going to try be more productive and get housework done. I plan to go into town to treat myself to new hair accessories. On Tuesday I'm meeting my sister for coffee and on Wednesday I'm meeting a friend for a drink. Don't know what's happening the rest of the week. It depends on my mood and energy levels.

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 09:06 PM

Ooh, I like prosecco! I have a bottle of red wine I'm working my way through at the moment :)

That sounds like a good plan Lorraine :)

I need to go to the gym now but it's so much effort!

Sketchy 09-04-2017 09:08 PM

I like a red wine too Hannah.

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 09:10 PM

I am really fussy about red wine but unfortunately I don't know enough about wine to know what I like about the ones I like :P

Sketchy 09-04-2017 09:15 PM

I like a really good wine. I like Rioja. Actually that's a lie. I like most wines. :)

Voldemort 09-04-2017 09:24 PM

I don't like wine. I'm really fussy with alcohol!

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 09:26 PM

I can't drink red wine. It gives me headaches and makes me feel sick!
I know nothing about wines but the house white I had on Saturday was very nice!

Voldemort 09-04-2017 09:28 PM

If I drink any wine it'll be red. But yeah. I prefer cider, vodka or gin really! Sometimes tequila.

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 09:38 PM

There are so many types of alcohol I can't drink anymore because I've overdone it on them in the past and got really messed up on them so I can't drink them now without immediately throwing up!
Dequila, malibu, red wine....probably more!

Voldemort 09-04-2017 09:46 PM

Oh! I love sambuca. Couldn't drink it for a couple of years as I drank far too much one night at a house party. (Ended up having a rather in depth conversation about child abuse at 4am with a stranger, as you do). Then I was still swinging between drunk and hungover the next day at work so didn't touch that for a while! And Jacques berry cider. *Shudders*

I'm mainly just fussy though!

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 10:02 PM

Oh no, sambuca is one I can't do any more!!
Although, I haven't had it in years so I might be ok with it now.

I keep hearing low planes going around. It's making me very anxious!
It's quite unusual. Might be a police helicopter? Idk but I'm not comfortable with it!!

Sketchy 09-04-2017 10:06 PM

I've had many a night out involving Sambuca and it's never ended well. :)

Beckie could you turn your tv up or listen to music to drown it out? It will likely be just a routine police helicopter for nothing exciting. Try not to worry.

Voldemort 09-04-2017 10:07 PM

Ugh. I hate that. It puts me on edge completely! I always worry they're going to crash into my house even though that's completely illogical!

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 10:11 PM

I've just read on the county police page that someone has gone missing so maybe it's a police helicopter looking for them?
Although he went missing on Thursday so maybe not.
I worry about them crashing too amy!
Or bombs.
But I doubt anyone would bother bombing a tiny rural town!
And I'm pretty sure the army and stuff are pretty hot on aircraft entering the airspace and what not.
Just my irrational fears!!
And I know they are irrational but still.. I'm silly! :p
It seems to have gone now.

Sketchy 09-04-2017 10:15 PM

It's not silly. At least you can see that they are irrational, so maybe it's best you try distracting yourself.

I've decided to take a trip to accessorize tomorrow and treat myself to new hair accessories. I'll need to be brave to face the town, but I'll go for a coffee too.

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 10:17 PM

I'm sure it will be fine Beckie! I can understand those fears, but it's just your mind stressing you out, it really is okay.

I used to be really fussy with alcohol but I am much less fussy now :P I can only have like a glass or two of wine though, if I get drunk on wine I just get really really ill, it's so not worth it! I have been to the gym, didn't stay that long but I still went, so I shall now reward myself with a glass of wine!

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 10:17 PM

That sounds good Lorraine! :) You should post pics of what you get!

Sketchy 09-04-2017 10:18 PM

I will do.

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 10:19 PM

Thanks Lorraine :)
It's gone now and I'm watching CSI which I like so it should take my mind off it!

That's a great idea! I love accessorize. Such pretty things!
And coffee is good. It's really good to have little rewards when you do something stressful like shopping.

I ordered 2 dresses online. I'm desperate for new clothes but reluctant to buy anything because I'm still losing weight. But there was a sale on so one dress was 8 and one was 12 so it's not too bad. And next day delivery was only 1.50 with the promotional code so yay!!

Sketchy 09-04-2017 10:19 PM

Well done Hannah. You deserve that glass of wine.

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 10:20 PM

Ninja post Hannah!

Well done for going to the gym! A short time is still good time! Enjoy your wine!

Sketchy 09-04-2017 10:20 PM

That's good you got dresses Beckie. It is good to treat yourself, I agree. I haven't shopped for anything other than groceries in ages.

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 10:24 PM

It makes me feel better when I have nice things on, rather than just jeans and a t shirt or this one dress I wear that was 4 from primark so not great!
Especially now it's getting warmer and I can't hide under a coat!!

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 10:24 PM

Beckie you should post pics too! I love seeing what other people buy!

I organised some of my stuff earlier and it occurred to me how much new stuff I have accumulated recently. Oops. No shopping for me for a while!

Sketchy 09-04-2017 10:29 PM

What kind of things did you get Hannah?

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 10:31 PM

I will!!

Lol Hannah!

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 10:46 PM

Umm. Clothes. Many many socks, it's ridiculous how many socks I now own! Lots of sloth-related items. Slippers. Books. Mugs.

Cacoethes 09-04-2017 10:50 PM

You can never have too many socks!! :p

I'm off to bed now guys! Night night and sleep well!

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 10:52 PM

But I only have two feet! :P

Sleep well Beckie! :)

Voldemort 09-04-2017 10:53 PM

Pics or it didn't happen. ;)

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 10:57 PM

You want pictures of my socks?

Voldemort 09-04-2017 11:31 PM

I want pictures of everything! I have loads of socks and that's even after getting rid of about 1/3 of them!

Serendipity. 09-04-2017 11:35 PM

Haha, I had lots of socks to start with, now I have even more! Some of them are super cute though. I shall photograph them after my nails dry!

What are you up to Amy? Bed soon?

Voldemort 10-04-2017 12:19 AM

I'm watching Bones! And reading through my LJ from like 2009. Ohhh dear!

Serendipity. 10-04-2017 12:22 AM

Haha, I guess my LJ is still there, I'm kinda tempted to read it now :P

Voldemort 10-04-2017 12:34 AM

I really don't advise it!! It's just funny reading mine but I'm in a good headspace. If you're not it's not a good idea!

Serendipity. 10-04-2017 12:46 AM

Well make sure you are being careful!

Too late, I'm doing it now :P Tbh I am just irritated with myself for being so emo!

Cacoethes 10-04-2017 11:13 AM

Morning guys!
I had to get up early to wait for my clothes delivery so I'm tired! I had like a half asleep nap type thing on the sofa. Feeling less groggy now!
And Yay for new clothes! Although I checked my bank account this morning and I'm in minus numbers now. Oops!!
I get paid tomorrow though. It's all good! :p

What's everyone up to today?

Wonderland. 10-04-2017 11:17 AM

Try and keep in the positive numbers Bex!
But yay for new clothes!

I taking it mostly easy today but got a bit of shopping to go and get.
You up to much for the rest of the day?

Cacoethes 10-04-2017 11:20 AM

I'll try!! :p

Taking it easy is good!
I'm pretty much doing the same. Need to go to asda and the library to print something out.
And I'll do some stuff on the wii fit later.

Wonderland. 10-04-2017 11:22 AM

Sounds pretty chilled.
Are your workout classes back on soon?

Cacoethes 10-04-2017 11:31 AM

They're back on next week. I've missed them so much!!

Wonderland. 10-04-2017 11:33 AM

Aw not too long to wait now then! Just have to put up with the wii and it's bluntness for a bit longer!

Cacoethes 10-04-2017 11:48 AM

Haha! Yep!
I'll probably still go on the wii most days. It's quite fun despite being insulted by it all the time! :p

Wonderland. 10-04-2017 11:51 AM

Bet it's nice to feel able to do a class in a social environment now though!

Just goes to show how much confidence you've gained!

Cacoethes 10-04-2017 11:59 AM

Yes definitely!! The social aspect is amazing!
I have really gained a lot of confidence since starting the classes! So glad I decided to do them!

My new phone charger arrived today as well. I didn't realise it was one of the fast charging ones so that was a nice surprise! My old one took forever!

not_so_insig 10-04-2017 12:08 PM

I have got a fast charging charger on the way as I left the other one in my parents house. I have a spare charger but it is so slow in comparison. I usually have to charge my phone at least twice a day.
