That's less than half, Beckie! You might be OK!


17 minutes? Cool. How come you get to go early? I'm in my hammock. It's nice. Might go for a walk down the seafront.

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 01:02 PM

I wouldnt mind snow if I was at home.
I just dont want to get stuck anywhere!

Because it's my mums birthday and im going to hers this afternoon. I need the extra time so I can find somewhere to get flowers before my bus to hers.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 01:07 PM

Snow is horrible! Luckily we rarely get it here because we're by the sea.


Oh, that's nice of you to get her flowers. :) Are you doing anything together for her birthday?

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 01:11 PM

I can't imagine a snowy beach!!

Not sure.
My aunty and nanny are driving down so not sure if we'll go for a meal or just chill at the house.
Should be nice anyway.
And I'll get to see Jasmine!

What are you up to today?

Aubergine 05-02-2018 01:19 PM

It has happened once in the time I can remember. The year I was IP for Christmas. The hospital is about 5 minutes from the beach, so the OT and her assistant took me for a walk in the January when it had been snowing and there was sea-slush to paddle in :D


Oh that sounds lovely. :) Hooray for getting to see Jasmine. That will be fun. :)


I popped into work earlier. Now I'm home and sat in my hammock under my heated throw. Might go for a walk down the seafront at some point, and I've got branch group later. :)

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 01:51 PM

Paddling in sea slush!??!
I can't think of anything worse!

Yep it should be good!

Sounds nice!

Aubergine 05-02-2018 01:58 PM

It was amazing! Very refreshing!


I think you should paddle in sea slush! Did Chels paddle in Great Yarmouth?

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 02:23 PM

Afternoon all. Sounds like everyone is being very productive :-)

Aubergine 05-02-2018 02:28 PM

Hey Emma. Well, I'm sat in my hammock eating ice cream. Not terribly productive, but it is rather lovely. :)


How are you?

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 02:39 PM

Not too bad thanks. Still in my pjs on the sofa. Watching loose women lol.

Hammock and icecream sounds epic.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 02:44 PM

Nice! Proper day time TV! Sounds chilled. Any plans for the day?


It is rather epic, especially because it's Magnum ice cream in a tub, which is my favourite!

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 02:58 PM

Feeling restless so need to do something but equally lacking motivation. Might get the bus to my friends later. What are you upto today?

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 03:05 PM

I think my mum has forgotten i was coming because no one is at the house!
No one is answering their phones either.
And it's the middle of nowhere so looks like I'll just have to wait until someone turns up!
I had an inkling that this would happen!

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 03:06 PM

Oh how annoying!!! Hope someone turns up soon.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 03:11 PM

Bus to your friends later sounds like a good idea. It sounds like a really difficult feeling to sit with.


I'm going to branch group later, which is a church thing. Or kind of. We're a bit of an unofficial branch because we can't be official because someone who attends is a member of a different church now. None of us wanted him to leave though, so we still meet and do Bible study and stuff. They are some of my favourite people in the world. :)

Aubergine 05-02-2018 03:12 PM

Oh no, Beckie! I hope someone gets back soon.

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 03:40 PM

That sounds really nice and chilled Aubergine. Will be nice to see your favourite people :-)

Aubergine 05-02-2018 03:46 PM

Yeah, it will. It's been a while because I've been being very good at avoiding things recently!


You still watching TV? What's on now?

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 04:05 PM

No just getting ready to go out. Hate this mood lol.

What times your branch group?

Aubergine 05-02-2018 04:09 PM

Sounds like a horrible mood. When are you next seeing your CC? I think it'd be worth contacting someone tomorrow.


Not until 7pm. Someone's picking me up about 6:45. :)

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 04:12 PM

13th. Don’t want to bug her though. I’ll see how things are tomorrow.

That sounds nice and yay for lifts! :-)

Aubergine 05-02-2018 04:20 PM

13th is a while away. See how you are tomorrow, but don't feel worried about bugging her. She sounds like a good egg who'd rather you contact her. :)


Lifts AND there is a cooked meal AND sometimes cake.

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 04:45 PM

Omg! Well jel (as the kids say) ;-)

Aubergine 05-02-2018 04:52 PM

Haha! Never have been "down with the kids." Not even when I was a kid. :P

Sketchy 05-02-2018 04:54 PM

Hey all!

I’m in hide away mode, but I will try go out tomorrow. Need to go to the post office and pick up meds.

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 04:56 PM

Hide away mode is ok for the odd day :-). Hopefully you’ll feel better tomorrow.

Ha, me neither Aubergine. Sometimes I have to google what my teenage sister says to understand her!

Sketchy 05-02-2018 04:57 PM

Thanks Emma.

How are you guys?

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 05:01 PM

Edgy lol. But currently waiting for the train to go see my friend. I’ve broken my headphones.

Are you doing anything relaxing at home?

Sketchy 05-02-2018 05:03 PM

Sorry you are edgy. It’s a horrible feeling. I hope your friend can distract you.

I’m just deciding what to watch on tv. I might paint or sew later.

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 05:04 PM

Thanks :-). That sounds good. What kind of painting do you do?

Sketchy 05-02-2018 05:06 PM

I’ve got some abstracts on the go.

Just now I’m relaxing on my rocking chair.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 05:06 PM

Hey Lorraine! I agree that hide away days are OK sometimes. Hopefully you'll feel up to going out tomorrow. TV sounds good, as do sewing and painting. Got any projects on the go?


Annoying about the headphones, Emma. Is there a shop you can get any new ones from? I don't go outside without headphones.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 05:07 PM

Well done for being in your front room, Lorraine. That's really positive for a hide away day. :)

Sketchy 05-02-2018 05:11 PM

Thanks Aubergine. I’m planning on making more bags. I’d like to make a bag for my threads.

It took me ages to get out of bed, but I’m determined to stay in my living room until bedtime.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 05:18 PM

A bag for your threads sounds like a really good idea. :)


It's OK that is took you ages. You've done it now. :) I am currently resisting the urge to get back into bed!

Sketchy 05-02-2018 05:30 PM

Can you get all cosy on your hammock?

Aubergine 05-02-2018 05:38 PM

I'm in my hammock with my heated blanket. I'm just feeling really, really tired and I have trouble sleeping anywhere other than my bed. I have fallen asleep in my hammock, but it doesn't happen very often. Bed straight after branch group, I think. :)


Are you comfy?

Sketchy 05-02-2018 05:41 PM

An early night sounds a good plan. I hope your meeting goes well.

I’m very comfy. I’ve got the fire on, but I think I need to put the heating on too. It’s very cold tonight.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 05:44 PM

It is cold. Even colder up where you are I'd imagine! I put my heating on. I don't usually, but thought I'd treat myself. :)

Sketchy 05-02-2018 05:48 PM

That’s good you have your heating on. I’ve just put mine on. My living room is heating up because of the fire but the rest of the flat is freezing. Hopefully it will heat up soon.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 05:54 PM

Oh, I only have heating on in my living room! My heaters are electric panel heaters and are all separate. I could switch them all on, but they are super expensive to run. The only reason I've dared to put it on today is because of the warm home grant thing I got. Maybe one day my landlord will install gas...

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:00 PM

Electric is more expensive. My first flat had electric heaters and they were so expensive. Thankfully I now have gas in this flat.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 06:03 PM

Gas is good! One day I will have gas heaters. And a cat.

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:10 PM

You can borrow Molly. She gives hugs and kisses.

Buttons. 05-02-2018 06:13 PM

My boiler is tempermental so I have to rely on electric heaters. Your cat is so cute Lorraine!!!

I've had a really good day, had nice lunch with support worker, went on a primarni spree and the psychologist who is reassessing my diagnosis says I don't have BPD after all so win life!

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:15 PM

Glad you have had a good day Buttons. What did you have for lunch?

Buttons. 05-02-2018 06:19 PM

Pizza <3

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:21 PM

Nice! I had a cheese salad baguette. Tasty!

Aubergine 05-02-2018 06:22 PM

Hey Buttons! Pizza is good!


Look at this cat:

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:25 PM

What a gorgeous cat!
