The Worst Witch 20-04-2020 11:27 AM

Yeah not bad ta. I saw my friend and her kids the other day while I was food shopping, so that cheered me up no end :).

How are you?

tamobhuuta 20-04-2020 12:30 PM

I'm ok thanks, about to put clothes on.

The Worst Witch 20-04-2020 12:58 PM

I got up earlyish to do some college stuff but my motivation isn’t the best today

one_step_closer 20-04-2020 01:34 PM

I think getting up early and motivation don't always go hand in hand.

The Worst Witch 20-04-2020 01:57 PM

True. It’s a bit better now I’ve made a cup of tea

How are you Lindsay?

one_step_closer 20-04-2020 02:54 PM

I'm in a very lazy mood. But that makes me bored so it's not great.

How's your day going?

The Worst Witch 20-04-2020 02:57 PM

I managed to finish half of my college work. Will do the other half after tea I think.

What are you up to? I’m about to get my book out until its time to do my share of the dinner chores/prep.

chinahorse 20-04-2020 03:21 PM

Hey. I'm eating food and just got back from morrisons. I got 3 plants too. Bertie immediately knocked the orchid over and one of the flowers fell off and theres bark stuff all over the floor :-(

Well done on the college work.

Might get a cuppa after this food and probably nap. Did a bit more sorting out of stuff this morning.

one_step_closer 20-04-2020 04:32 PM

Well done for managing some of your work.

What are you eating Lillie?

Cats and plants don't tend to go well together in my experience.

nonperson 20-04-2020 05:41 PM

Oh no, poor orchid. =(

chinahorse 20-04-2020 05:44 PM

It's ok now. Still need to clean up the carpet though :-/

He got walloped every time he went near the new plants. Then sulked but left them alone. Now is fast asleep.

nonperson 20-04-2020 05:58 PM

Orchid bark does make a right old mess.

What are the other new plants?

Shirayuki 20-04-2020 06:07 PM

Hey guys, how're you?

Good job on finishing some work :)

Poor orchid!

The Worst Witch 20-04-2020 07:42 PM

I like orchids, they’re pretty.

How did your first day back at work go np?

nonperson 20-04-2020 08:05 PM

It was ok. =/

The Worst Witch 20-04-2020 08:50 PM

That doesn’t sound too confident..

Shirayuki 20-04-2020 08:52 PM

*agrees with wholeheartedly*

What happened Np?

nonperson 21-04-2020 07:21 AM

Nothing particularly. Just thought with all that time off I'd return with a clearer head but I was pissed off within an hour. Student hadn't watered properly over the weekend, people had broken my stuff and killed my plants. *shrug*

The Worst Witch 21-04-2020 08:08 AM

Gah, how annoying! Especially killing your plants, poor plants :(.

How is everyone this fine sunny day?

chinahorse 21-04-2020 10:01 AM

Morning guys :-)

tamobhuuta 21-04-2020 10:22 AM

How frustrating np.

Hi WW and china, how are you?

I only woke up once in the night!

The Worst Witch 21-04-2020 10:28 AM

I’m not bad, just cold. Its really sunny here but its still freezing!

How are you tamo?

tamobhuuta 21-04-2020 10:39 AM

It's sunny here too, but I don't know how cold it is, haven't been out yet.

I am ok, might have a shower but just about to make another coffee.

Cacoethes 21-04-2020 10:39 AM

Morning guys

The Worst Witch 21-04-2020 10:43 AM

Morning beckie

How are you today?

tamobhuuta 21-04-2020 10:47 AM

Decided not to have another coffee, having tea instead. Important update I know.

Cacoethes 21-04-2020 11:07 AM

I'm annoyed already lol
But put some washing on

You rebel tamo!

tamobhuuta 21-04-2020 11:14 AM

Well done for doing washing Cacoethes!

Cacoethes 21-04-2020 11:20 AM

Thank you! :)

chinahorse 21-04-2020 11:21 AM

Well done for washing.

Tea is better than normal coffee!! And yay for a better nights sleep tamo.

I've had a phone hospital appointment. Which I'm upset over even though it was what I expected. Showered and had breakfast and signed stuff with the landlord. Now want to sleep again.

tamobhuuta 21-04-2020 11:35 AM

I want to sleep too.

Cacoethes 21-04-2020 11:41 AM

Thanks Lillie
Have you got much left to do today?

chinahorse 21-04-2020 12:07 PM

Nothing I HAVE to do today no. Want to out up my curtains in the living room. If the picture hanging strips arrive I may put them up. Just need to allow myself to rest.

The Worst Witch 21-04-2020 12:09 PM

I also want to sleep but I'm in the middle of my tutor on video chat explaining how to do my last report of the year.

Well done for doing washing Beckie. You've reminded me, I need to put some pyjamas in the wash when I'm finished with classes today!

Why did appointment upset you Lillie?

Tea rules all tamo. I can't stand coffee, it just tastes wrong!

Cacoethes 21-04-2020 12:12 PM

Hopefully you can rest today then Lillie
Do the picture hanging strips actually work?
I've been too nervous to try them in case they leave a mark on the wall

Hope you get on ok with your last report!

chinahorse 21-04-2020 12:33 PM

Sleep after the video chat?

Cant stop the problem or investigate why until after this quarantine stuff.

They do work well beckie! Have to get the command brand though

one_step_closer 21-04-2020 01:25 PM

I'm sorry your phone appointment upset you Lillie. I hope you can rest today. Command strips are definitely the best.

Well done for doing some washing Beckie.

I hope your video chat goes/has gone well.

Why are people so sleepy? I don't dare to try and nap or sleep through the day in case it messes up my sleep routine.

not_so_insig 21-04-2020 01:38 PM

Afternoon all. I am tempted to put a bear in my window the trouble is which one! (Have a collection of bears) I suppose I could put a different bear each week that would solve the problem.

Cacoethes 21-04-2020 01:42 PM

That's annoying Lillie.
I really hope all this quarantine stuff ends soon. It messes with so much!

Me too lindsay

tamobhuuta 21-04-2020 01:43 PM

I think I'm missing something - why are you putting a bear in your window?

not_so_insig 21-04-2020 01:45 PM


It's a new thing to do during lockdown tamobhuuta

Shirayuki 21-04-2020 02:18 PM

Morning guys ^^

How're you?

Hope today goes better np x

Hope your last report goes well!

Oooh Teddies!! I love teddies, they're so cuddly, fuzzy and a great stress reliever *rambles on about teddy bears*

tamobhuuta 21-04-2020 02:38 PM

Aw that's a really sweet idea.

one_step_closer 21-04-2020 02:48 PM

I really want to put a rainbow in my window but I don't want my neighbours to see. I only have three teddies. Well I also have a clould character and a pot of daffodils soft toy. And a vase of smiley face soft toy flowers.

How are you doing Rose? I can't remember what we call you now that you've changed your username.

chinahorse 21-04-2020 03:28 PM

I have about 800 penguins, a boofle, unicorn and purple elephant.

Shirayuki 21-04-2020 03:30 PM

What's a "boofle"?

Can I have a penguin?

The Worst Witch 21-04-2020 03:38 PM

I love boffle! He's so cute.

Thanks. I think it's pretty straight forward, I have to put in observations of children though and I didn't finish all mine before the virus happened. Oh well, will have to improvise!

Shirayuki 21-04-2020 03:39 PM

Maybe you could do a video call to a friend?

The Worst Witch 21-04-2020 03:50 PM

Nope, because all the reports will be different depending on what children you observed, it'd be obvious if you copied someone else's. Will have to do the good old method of just making them up!

Shirayuki 21-04-2020 03:52 PM

Good luck!

How's it going so far?
