Well any reason is a good reason, I suppose!

Indigo. 19-10-2018 10:16 PM

Pasta is nom! So is chicken!
I made steak for my dad and uncle, and it was rather nice, if I may say so myself.

I too let food go to waste :( I have a very small freezer so I can't freeze anything. I can't wait to move and get a bigger fridge-freezer.

That sounds like a good reason to do your nails. Sparkly bronze sounds nice!

NP - Ahh what a naughty cat!

Aubergine 20-10-2018 06:01 AM

Why am I awake?

nonperson 20-10-2018 08:18 AM

I was having that same thought at 3:30 this morning...

chinahorse 20-10-2018 09:46 AM

Me 3 at various points in the night.

Indigo. 20-10-2018 10:14 AM

Me 4 at 4 am tonight. Why insomnia? (Although admittedly I'm jet lagged, but I've managed to sleep at quasi-normal hours so far!)

How is everyone today?

Eska 20-10-2018 10:27 AM

Morning people :) I am waiting for my friend to come and change some light fittings for us.

chinahorse 20-10-2018 11:11 AM

Like the shade bit eska?

It's so sunny! I'm waiting for my dad his partner and the dogs. I'm strangely nervous. Mind my body is being an anxiety troll atm so maybe that's why.

Indigo. 20-10-2018 11:14 AM

It's really sunny here too!

I hope your anxiety eases and you have a good day Lillie. Also: dogs!!! I miss my dog.

Hopefully you wont have to wait long for them Eska.

Buttons. 20-10-2018 11:23 AM

Morning all. It's sunny here too but quite cold.

Indigo. 20-10-2018 12:48 PM

Not sure how cold it is outside. It's warm in the house.

Aubergine 20-10-2018 02:23 PM


Indigo. 20-10-2018 03:09 PM

Hey there Aubergine. How are you doing? X

Eska 20-10-2018 03:19 PM

Hi Aubergine, how are you doing?

Lillie I hope the anxiety feeling abated and you are having a nice time.
They are wall lights, so the process involved unwiring the existing ones and taking them down, wiring in the new ones and screwing them to the wall. It's all done now and it looks a lot better.

Lucy, how is your day going?

Aubergine 20-10-2018 03:31 PM

Hey Lucy and Eska! How are you both?

I'm glad that your lights are sorted, Eska!

I'm OK. Tired, I think. And a bit nervous about a medication review on Monday. It's a mandatory one with the pharmacist employed by my GP surgery and they wont let me have my next lot of meds without it. It's a bit of a waste of 20 minutes really, given that I work in a pharmacy (with one pharmacist who's got a post graduate diploma in psychiatric meds) and have a routine review with my psychiatrist on Novemeber 7th. And all of my meds are psychiatric. :wow:

Indigo. 20-10-2018 03:51 PM

I've had a quasi-productive day. Sorted through my mom's books in my grandma's house, and I now have a pile of them I'm gonna have delivered to my place and a much larger pile I will be donating.

Glad to hear the lights got sorted Eska. Did you recently move to a new place? I think I remember you saying something about that before.

Ah, Aubergine, medication reviews are a bit futile if nothing significant has changed. Let alone if you could've just discussed it with your psych and/or your colleague! I hope it goes smoothly on Monday.

chinahorse 20-10-2018 04:07 PM

Glad it's all sorted now eska.

Busy busy Lucy!

I have forgotten everything else :/

Eska 20-10-2018 04:12 PM

Lucy I did, so there's been a lot of sorting and stuff going on. Next project is the ceiling lights.

Lillie, how is your day unfolding?

Aubergine, I hope you manage to get some rest and that it goes ok on Monday.

chinahorse 20-10-2018 04:17 PM

You've done loads! I still ha entry put a lampshade on my 2suitable lights after 10 months!

Ok. We took the dogs to a beach and let them run crazy which was fun. Then they kept shaking on us lol. We then had lunch which awful and thankfully now home in track bottoms under a blanket.

Indigo. 20-10-2018 04:24 PM

Eska, I am familiar with the stress of moving. I'm planning to move too in the next few months hopefully and I'm dreading the technicalities.

Lillie, it's good you're home and comfy now! Hopefully you can get some rest as it sounds like you've had a long day.

My dad's coming over for dinner, and now I'm just waiting for him. Got to do the washing up but cba.

chinahorse 20-10-2018 05:08 PM

Washing up is tedious. Good you get to see your dad though. What're you cooking?

Aubergine 20-10-2018 05:33 PM

I've been here forever almost and haven't put lampshades on my suitable lights either. :P

chinahorse 20-10-2018 05:36 PM

Glad I'm not the only one!

Eska 20-10-2018 05:41 PM

Lillie, dogs on the beach sounds fun! The only reason I'm being is proactive is that the wall lights looked nasty and gave weird shadows and the ceiling lights are ridiculous and don't give much light despite having nine bulbs each. Plus I kind of enjoy the whole process of picking stuff out and making a room feel right.

Lucy, I hope you have a good time with your dad.

chinahorse 20-10-2018 05:49 PM

Good reasons and wow that's a lot of bulbs!
My excuse is that even stood on a chair or the bed Im about 2 ft too short to read my bedroom one. And my living room ones are recessed into the ceiling.

You are right about picking out stuff. I still get the same buzz about nesting at home.

Eska 20-10-2018 05:56 PM

Yep, especially given that there are two of the things in the living room bit!

I have been nesting hardcore over the past few months in anticipation of moving in here, so now we're actually in I'm doing all the things!

Indigo. 20-10-2018 06:47 PM

I've been putting off changing the lightbulb in the bathroom for months now, going to the shop to pick the right one seems exhausting.

Oh wow Lillie, you're quite tall if I remember correctly, you must have high ceilings.

Thank you. We're having a nice evening; I don't get to see my dad very often, so it's good to catch up. I only made salad, and our neighbour popped in and gave us some meat loaf so we're having some of that.

I too enjoy picking out stuff, I'm looking forward to moving.

zombiehunter 20-10-2018 06:53 PM

*peeks in*

chinahorse 20-10-2018 07:25 PM

Hey zombie. How's things?

It's great you get to spend some time with him Lucy.

Ha no I'm short though everyone seems to think I'm tall. Im not even 5 foot 4.

zombiehunter 20-10-2018 07:44 PM

hey there oriental equine, alls good here thanks, how're yoU??

chinahorse 20-10-2018 07:47 PM

Good good :)

I'm ok enough thanks. Tired.

zombiehunter 20-10-2018 07:51 PM

been the **** up to much???

Eska 20-10-2018 08:06 PM

Hi Zombie, glad all is good with you

Aubergine 20-10-2018 08:08 PM


zombiehunter 20-10-2018 08:10 PM

hi eskamo and eggplant :-D

eskamo did I read earlier in the thread that you like to go climbing or is my head up my arse??

chinahorse 20-10-2018 08:17 PM

Been to the beach with my dad his partner and the dogs. And have been watching harry potter.

Indigo. 20-10-2018 08:40 PM

Lillie, oops, I swear you were taller than me when I saw you! And I'm 5'7".
Which HP you watching? Always a fan!

Hey Zombie, glad all is well.

not_so_insig 20-10-2018 08:55 PM

Hello all. I have a shiny new phone. I downloaded all my apps though it was a bit of a pain having to retype in all my passwords. So if you see typos blame the phone!

Aubergine 20-10-2018 08:56 PM

I still have not seen/read/listened to Harry Potter. Really should remedy that!

I'm glad taking the dogs out was fun, Lillie. :)

Up to much, Lucy? Glad you had a nice time with your Dad. :)

I'm considering getting into bed.

chinahorse 20-10-2018 09:01 PM

You should have watched them on it aubergine. They've had 1 every Saturday now. And it was deathly hallows part 1 Lucy.

Least you could remember them all dawn! You liking the phone so far?

Do it aubergine. I've just got into bed. Though I wish my mattress was more comfy.

zombiehunter 20-10-2018 09:01 PM

i'm watching father ted :-D

Aubergine 20-10-2018 09:37 PM

That's cool, Dawn! :)

I did it, Lillie. In my bed now and it's delightful. Though I feel you about a comfier mattress. Think you'll sleep soon?

Cool Zombie! Haven't seen that for years. :)

Indigo. 20-10-2018 10:16 PM

Yay for new phone Dawn!

I've been talking to my girlfriend about watching all the HP movies with Sunday dinner until Christmas. I like Deathly Hallows pt 1 more than pt 2 Lillie, but I've only seen them once I think.

Aubergine you should definitely watch/read them!

Not up to much at all, also about to get into bed! I've had a long day so excited for sleep.

Aubergine 20-10-2018 10:20 PM

Hooray for sleep, Lucy! I hope you sleep long and well. :)

I'm terrible at concentrating on reading or watching a film! Have considered buying a film at a time and watching them in chunks. Might have to do it! Only so I don't feel left out in this thread, mind... ;)

Indigo. 20-10-2018 10:29 PM

Thank you :) I'm gonna read a bit before bed, and hopefully that'll help me fall asleep more easily.

I can relate to not being able to concentrate. I haven't really seen too many films because of this. I often struggle with reading as well which sucks because reading is one of my favourite things(I'm a textbook Ravenclaw XD)

Aubergine 20-10-2018 10:30 PM

What are you reading, Lucy?

I don't really understand what a Ravenclaw is. :P

Indigo. 20-10-2018 10:48 PM

Some fanfiction, not the best I've read but it'll do, it's a great distraction from life!

A Ravenclaw is someone who values knowledge above all I guess: in other words, a massive nerd, which I certainly am XD It'll all make perfect sense once you've read/watched HP! :)

nonperson 20-10-2018 10:54 PM


Aubergine 20-10-2018 11:05 PM

Perhaps I'm a Ravencaw then. I'm such a nerd. Mostly when it comes to pharmaceuticals though! Yes, I'm even weird for a nerd. :P

I'm glad that the fanfiction is providing such a good distration from life! :)


nonperson 20-10-2018 11:08 PM

I'm a pumpkin obsessed Hufflepuff - equally weirdly nerdy.


I found aubergine christmas decorations in a shop today and thought of you.
