Well done, Dawn. =)

Any baking on the agenda today?

not_so_insig 15-09-2018 02:52 PM

No baking today. I only did most of it because my friend was coming. She didn't eat much because she brought a meat and potato pie. So now I have a lot of cakes left. Fortunately my parents are back soon so they can help me eat the cakes. I haven't given my neighbours the brownies so that will get rid of some.

nonperson 15-09-2018 02:56 PM

There's nothing worse than having too many cakes. =P

I'm sure your parents and neighbours will appreciate them.

Cacoethes 15-09-2018 03:05 PM

Hey guys
Was gaming with the bros until 2:30am!
Waiting for my mum in a cafe now.
Somehow got to make this coffee last another 25 mins
And I had a piece of delicious carrot cake!

not_so_insig 15-09-2018 03:06 PM

I think that the carrot cake may go because I ate most of it after giving it to my neighbours so haven't got much left. I have half a pack of rich tea biscuits too.

nonperson 15-09-2018 03:15 PM

I also have half a pack of rich tea biscuits in the cupboard that I'm not sure what to do with.

one_step_closer 15-09-2018 03:22 PM

Why do you all have cake and biscuits and I don't? *sulks*

nonperson 15-09-2018 03:23 PM

I only have biscuits!

*sends some over*

not_so_insig 15-09-2018 03:32 PM

*shares cakes with everyone*

one_step_closer 15-09-2018 03:51 PM

Thanks. :-)

What are you all getting up to apart from making me crave food as you always do?

nonperson 15-09-2018 04:08 PM

Looking for clothes online and attempting to make a food shopping list for later...

What about you?

not_so_insig 15-09-2018 04:26 PM

I am just watching tv. Horsey sport is on later so I will miss Casualty. That's assuming that it's not like last night where it kept on being delayed.

chinahorse 15-09-2018 04:29 PM

Afternoon :) I had another accidental 4 hour nap- oops.

not_so_insig 15-09-2018 04:31 PM

Oh dear Lillie.

I am considering what to have for tea. Probably have a sausage salad.

nonperson 15-09-2018 04:32 PM

Hi Lillie. If you need to nap, you need to nap. It's a powerful force that you shouldn't fight.

chinahorse 15-09-2018 04:35 PM

Haha np :-P does mean I should do something productive now though. Ive put the washing machine on again and taken the bin and recycling out.

Sausage salad? Thats an odd combination.

not_so_insig 15-09-2018 04:37 PM

I had a gousto meal box and that was in it. It should be tasty as I have only had 1 bad meal from them.

nonperson 15-09-2018 04:40 PM

Sausage goes with everything!

not_so_insig 15-09-2018 04:41 PM

It has croutons too!

chinahorse 15-09-2018 04:44 PM

Its getting weirder and weirder.

Croutons are for soup!

nonperson 15-09-2018 04:45 PM

I have croutons with salad sometimes!

And they offer croutons in the Harvester with the salad buffet aaaaand when you get the salad box thing in Morrisons. So they must be a normal thing to have with salad.

Aubergine 15-09-2018 04:46 PM

Hello! I hate this studying for a degree thing. it's hard! Stupid assessment. I'm rather fed up of it now and still have forever to go. Raaaaaaaar. Mum did just pop in and bring me hot chocolate and cake from Costa. She's an excellent egg.

nonperson 15-09-2018 04:52 PM

Hi Aubergine. It is hard - I don't know how anyone does it (I don't think I could ever go back to education). Maybe have a break from studying for a while?

chinahorse 15-09-2018 05:01 PM

Well done for doing some aubergine! And your mum is lovely <3
My best advice is small goals with rewards like 10 mins playing with alec, 10 mins listening to your fav song etc.

And I agree np, its super hard, I did uni, finally finished, had a few years not studying and now am back studying and am worse than ever at studiously avoiding it :-P

not_so_insig 15-09-2018 05:18 PM

Croutons are part of a caesar salad too. I used to like the caesar salad from table table until they ruined it by adding kale. Now they don't do it anymore probably because nobody was ordering it due to them adding kale. I don't know anyone who likes kale.

nonperson 15-09-2018 05:23 PM

I like kale! One of the few vegetables I will eat.

one_step_closer 15-09-2018 07:40 PM

I thought kale was maybe some kind of seaweed. Never tried it.

I had steak pie and mash and broccoli for my dinner.

chinahorse 15-09-2018 07:47 PM

I've only ever had kale in a smoothie that we used to make in my old work. So the flavour was masked by the ingredients.

What a proper dinner!

I appear to be having ginger snap biscuits for mine, oops.

Aubergine 15-09-2018 07:59 PM

Hello! I like kale. :)


Studying is haaaaaard, but I've done the first two sections (so 66%). Just the last section to go, which is an essay, which I hate. Haha.

Aubergine 15-09-2018 08:00 PM

Dinner first though. Might even leave it until tomorrow!

chinahorse 15-09-2018 08:06 PM

You've done loads today aubergine! Well done :)

WHats for dinner?

zombiehunter 15-09-2018 08:37 PM

hello eggplant and oriental equine

Aubergine 15-09-2018 08:49 PM

Dinner is steak, new potatoes and salad! :D :D :D


Yo Zombie! How're you?


Alec has just congratulated me by being sick on the carpet.

zombiehunter 15-09-2018 08:52 PM

all good here thanks eggplant

I'll be having Korean chilli chicken and rice for ****ing dinner :-D

nonperson 15-09-2018 09:03 PM

Poor Alec. =/

chinahorse 15-09-2018 10:04 PM

poor alec :(

sounds nice zombie

Aubergine 15-09-2018 10:10 PM

I know! He seems OK now. I haven't even heard him be sick before, poor boy. He's soundly asleep on the sofa next to me, so I think all is good.


Time for bed soon. My brain hurts.


How's everyone doing?

chinahorse 15-09-2018 10:41 PM

Am off to bed. Night x

nonperson 15-09-2018 11:10 PM

Goodnight, Aubergine and Lillie.

Am I in here all alone now?

not_so_insig 16-09-2018 12:14 AM

Yeah lol.

nonperson 16-09-2018 12:18 AM

Ohh… :sad:

:-p

Pomegranate 16-09-2018 12:58 AM

Hey NP

not_so_insig 16-09-2018 01:04 AM

Hi Pomegranate

nonperson 16-09-2018 01:12 AM

Hi Pomegranate =)

Why's everyone up so late?

Pomegranate 16-09-2018 02:29 AM

Hiya both. I’m watching Netflix and having some wine. Thought it may motivate me to clean and tidy ��

nonperson 16-09-2018 02:31 AM

Is it working? =P

I emergency cleaned and tidied this morning so thankfully that's done for the week.

Pomegranate 16-09-2018 03:30 AM

It is most definitely NOT working ��. I’ve spent a stupid of time playing on my phone and Pokemon go :-p

nonperson 16-09-2018 03:35 AM

Yay, a fellow Pokémon Go player! =D

not_so_insig 16-09-2018 05:52 AM

I am up at this time of morning because my **** of a neighbour decided to play music at 3 am. Therefore waking me up. Not only that they have decided to cook and burn their snack by setting the smoke alarm off. Argh.

chinahorse 16-09-2018 09:37 AM

Hope everyone got some sleep!
