I'm back!
Slimming world was good. It was nice to see everyone again and had some good chats :)

How are we all?

nonperson 25-09-2018 10:06 PM

That's good, Beckie. You always enjoy it more than you think you will.

I'm watching Bake Off and pondering a dessert of more lasagne.

Cacoethes 25-09-2018 10:12 PM

That is true!

Lasagne is yummy!

nonperson 25-09-2018 10:19 PM

Hi Jinxie!

That sounds encouraging. =)

nonperson 25-09-2018 10:24 PM

Long may it last. =)

They're making ginger cakes on Bake Off and it's making me actually drool.

Cacoethes 25-09-2018 10:24 PM

Glad you're feeling positive jinxie!

Mmmm ginger cake

Aubergine 25-09-2018 10:27 PM

Hey Person! How are you?

Well done for going to Slimming World, Beckie. You can do it!

Hey Jinxie. :)

Two days off now!

nonperson 25-09-2018 10:27 PM

Is anyone going to a Macmillan coffee morning on Friday?

nonperson 25-09-2018 10:27 PM

Hooray for two days off! Got any exciting plans?

I'm ok. Oddly cheerful tonight.

Cacoethes 25-09-2018 10:28 PM

Thanks Aubergine!
And yay for 2 days off!

No I'm not np. Are you?

nonperson 25-09-2018 10:29 PM

Yeah, we hold one every year at work. =)

Cacoethes 25-09-2018 10:32 PM

That's cool

There are probably some happening around here somewhere!

Aubergine 25-09-2018 10:33 PM

I'm woooooorking all day on Friday. So no coffee morning for me. I think the Macmillan Centre upstairs is doing one, but we'll likely be too busy to go. :(

I have church tomorrow, going to go for a swim, a Bible course all day on Thursday, then a prayer evening. It's 24/7 prayer week, so there's lots of stuff going on! :)

Are YOU going to a coffee morning, Person?

I have chocolate!

Cacoethes 25-09-2018 10:44 PM

Busy Aubergine!
Sounds like good stuff

Mmm chocolate!

I'm waiting for an indian takeaway.
One last blow out before I'm back to my healthy eating routine!

zombiehunter 25-09-2018 10:44 PM

Cacoethes 25-09-2018 10:46 PM

Of course. =P No matter how busy I am at work I will be there nomming cake. The quality is always really high!

Going to be making shortbread for it too as it's the only thing I can bake. =/

Aubergine 25-09-2018 10:53 PM

Mmmm. Cake! :D

Ooo shortbread. I would really like you to deliver some to the Macmillan Centre here, please. :) :P

nonperson 25-09-2018 10:55 PM

No problem! Cherry or chocolate chip?

Cacoethes 25-09-2018 11:04 PM

Shortbread is yummy!

chinahorse 25-09-2018 11:04 PM

Choc chip please!

Cacoethes 25-09-2018 11:06 PM

Definitely choc chip!

nonperson 25-09-2018 11:09 PM

I'm wondering how well shortbread would travel in the post... =/

Aubergine 25-09-2018 11:16 PM

Chocolate chip please! :D :D

I'm sure it'll travel excellently. :P

nonperson 25-09-2018 11:21 PM

My cherry shortbread is better for some reason. =P

Aubergine 25-09-2018 11:29 PM

I'll have that instead then. :P :D

My knee hurts. :( Xray on Tuesday. Really need to do more exercise! :O

nonperson 25-09-2018 11:31 PM

Of course virtual shortbread is always going to be the tastiest.

Oh dear, what have you done to your knee?

Aubergine 25-09-2018 11:41 PM

No idea. It's been hurting and swollen for over a month. Mentioned it to the GP when I saw her to get a sick note extended back whenever and she referred me for an Xray. I'm hoping it's just soft tissue damage or something that'll heal itself! I'm rather overweight, so that's not going to help. It just hurts when I bend it. Can stand on it fine, but going up stairs/cycling is an ineresting one!

Yum! Virtual shortbread! :D

nonperson 25-09-2018 11:58 PM

That is strange. Sometimes things just don't heal on their own, especially if it's bending it that's the problem. Maybe you'll need a full leg cast. ;-)

Aubergine 26-09-2018 12:01 AM

Don't even joke. :P :D

I'm so sleepy! In bed. Hoping for sleep soon! :)

You're awake late for a work night! :)

nonperson 26-09-2018 12:04 AM

I don't think that'll happen, don't worry. =P

I'm tired but not sleepy for some reason. Made myself a hot chocolate though so maybe that will help.

Aubergine 26-09-2018 12:10 AM

Haha! Nor do I, but Murphy's Law and all that. :P

Oh, I'm sorry that you're tired but not sleepy. That can be so frustrating! Hot chocolate sounds good. :) I hope it helps and you're able to drift off!

Got much on at work for the ret of the week (other than cake eating on Friday. :D)?

nonperson 26-09-2018 12:15 AM

Normally by now I'd have fallen asleep on the sofa so... dunno. Seems to be either one thing or the other with me sometimes.

I also have a warm cat on my lap who might follow me up to bed if I got off my arse and moved.

Well, just the usual boring work stuff, mingled with lots of food stuff this week actually. Tomorrow is a lecture lunch thing (free food, yay!), then more cake eating on Thursday for a leaving do... and then Cake Friday. =D

Aubergine 26-09-2018 12:34 AM

Ooo cat on your lap! :) Love a good cat cuddle! Would be good if he followed you up to bed - I hope he does! Bed snuggles with a cat is the best.

Ooo that is a lot of food stuff. Nice! :) Free food sounds excellent! Very, very occasionally we'll get drugs reps that give us free food. :D

nonperson 26-09-2018 12:40 AM

I thought for a moment that said the reps gave you free drugs!!

Must be more tired than I realise.

chinahorse 26-09-2018 07:28 AM

Morning all :)

It's too cold to get out of bed.

Eska 26-09-2018 08:30 AM

Morning Lillie! Tis definitely chilly, I slept with a fleece and warm socks on last night and didn't overheat at all.

Cacoethes 26-09-2018 12:36 PM

Morning guys

one_step_closer 26-09-2018 03:04 PM

It's afternoon now! How are you all getting on?

Cacoethes 26-09-2018 03:13 PM

Not bad
Had my hair cut and it feels and smells so nice!

How are you doing lindsay?

one_step_closer 26-09-2018 03:19 PM

Did you get it washed at the hairdressers too? I would virtually stroke your hair but that might be creepy!

I'm alright. A reminder has popped up about a phone call I have to make but as is almost always the case I have a cat sleeping on me. When I make phone calls I have to be sitting on the stairs for some reason. Will just have to get up eventually.

Cacoethes 26-09-2018 03:30 PM

I love getting my hair washed at the hair dressers!
So relaxing
Yeah that would be a little creepy :p

You can't move the cat!
Its the law!
Good luck with the phone call

Aubergine 26-09-2018 04:52 PM


Cacoethes 26-09-2018 04:57 PM

Hey Aubergine!
How are you?

Aubergine 26-09-2018 05:15 PM

Good thanks! How are you? Been up to much today?

Cacoethes 26-09-2018 05:19 PM

Im ok
Had my haircut, that's about it!
I was going to go for a swim but my ankle isn't up to the walk

How about you?

not_so_insig 26-09-2018 05:37 PM

Hello all.
