My nanny is a really good cook

Well that's not very nutritious!

nonperson 12-10-2018 07:39 PM

How long are you staying with her? Hope she's got more amazing meals planned for you.

I never even tried to convince myself it would be nutritious. =P

Probably do some pasta in a bit. Not that I really need more carbs... >.>

Cacoethes 12-10-2018 07:41 PM

Staying until Monday
I'm sure she will!
Everything she makes is yummy, even when she's just like 'I've been lazy and just whipped this together' its still way more effort and more delicious than I can ever do!!

Haha! :p
Got anything to go with the pasta?

nonperson 12-10-2018 07:48 PM

It's the special skill of that generation, I think!

Not really. I bought some stir-in pasta sauces so I'll just use one of those and dump a load of cheese on top. =P

nonperson 12-10-2018 07:48 PM

I also need to go out later and get cash/supplies for tomorrow... =/

Cacoethes 12-10-2018 07:59 PM

My mum can do it too.

Mmm cheese!!
Sucks that you have to go out again though!
Its dark!!

nonperson 12-10-2018 08:02 PM

And still windy!

I was dumb and went out yesterday to do it but forgot to take my debit card.

Cacoethes 12-10-2018 08:13 PM

Yep and windy!
Ah no thats so annoying!

Aubergine 12-10-2018 08:20 PM

Yo! :)

nonperson 12-10-2018 08:23 PM

Yobergine! How are you?

Aubergine 12-10-2018 08:23 PM

I'm OK thanks. How're you?

nonperson 12-10-2018 08:34 PM

I'm alright. Full of nerdy excitement for tomorrow. And pasta. =)

Cacoethes 12-10-2018 08:36 PM

Hi Aubergine!

Aubergine 12-10-2018 08:50 PM

What's tomorrow, Person?

Hi Beckie! How are you?

I have a cold. I've been poorly for a WEEK!

Cacoethes 12-10-2018 08:51 PM

I'm ok thanks!

Oh no Aubergine!!
Colds are no fun

nonperson 12-10-2018 08:52 PM

Tomorrow is giant pumpkin weigh off day. =)

Oh no. Are you getting better now? A week is a long time to be ill.

Cacoethes 12-10-2018 08:57 PM

My family are growing pumpkins this year.
I doubt they are anywhere near as impressive as yours though np!

Aubergine 12-10-2018 08:58 PM

Ooo hooray for pumpkins! I hope you have fun. :)

I'm glad that you're OK, Beckie! :) Been up to much?

I thought I was getting better, but feel awful today. I can't work out if it's the first cold that's got a second wind, or I've icked up another cold. The problem with working with sick people. :(

not_so_insig 12-10-2018 09:29 PM

Hello all.

not_so_insig 12-10-2018 09:30 PM

How was your meeting with Mike the other day Beckie?

Cacoethes 12-10-2018 09:37 PM

Thanks Aubergine!
Met up with Mike yesterday and stayed over.
We had a great time thanks Dawn!

That sounds awful aubergine :(
I hope it clears off soon

nonperson 12-10-2018 10:05 PM

There are three transit vans full of police outside my house! I've never felt so safe. =)

Eska 12-10-2018 10:18 PM

Oh, wow! How come, do you know?

I am tired... We did a marathon Ikea shop for the new flat after work and now I am on my way home.

nonperson 12-10-2018 10:21 PM

Because of royal wedding stuff. They've been around all day.

Eek, Ikea is a tiring place to visit even if you don't buy loads! Did you get everything you wanted?

Eska 12-10-2018 10:29 PM

Ah right! I hardly even knew a royal wedding was happening. Shows how tuned in I am.

I think we got most things! There are a few bits and pieces we might order online instead. And we still need a fridge, that's probably the most urgent.

Indigo. 12-10-2018 10:41 PM

I also had no clue about any weddings!

Eska, IKEA marathon sounds exhausting. I hope you can get some rest soon.

Glad you had a good time yesterday Beckie.

Oh no Aubergine, I can empathise, been sick for a while too, and everyone around me has had this cold (I've got a kidney infection, didn't catch the cold.) I hope you feel better soon.

NP, yay for pasta! Hope tomorrow goes well :)

nonperson 12-10-2018 10:48 PM

This one was much more low-key but we've known about it for months here.

Thanks Indigo. =) The pasta was very nice!

chinahorse 13-10-2018 08:18 AM

Morning guys :)

Cacoethes 13-10-2018 12:38 PM

I have just woken up

not_so_insig 13-10-2018 03:30 PM

Oops Beckie!

Though I can beat you as I woke up at about quarter past two.

one_step_closer 13-10-2018 06:22 PM

I hope you two aren't going to be awake all night now.

I'm eagerly awaiting NP coming into the thread.

Buttons. 13-10-2018 06:59 PM

Evening all, guess who is out of hospital and has cuppa soup to share round!

Cacoethes 13-10-2018 08:45 PM

That's awesome buttons!!

Its 8:40 and i am tired but only just setting off for the club

nonperson 13-10-2018 08:51 PM

I'm here! And absolutely shattered. Long but exciting day.

My two pumpkins didn't weigh as much as estimated but still pleased with the results. Came 3rd for the squash (45 stone) and 10th for the pumpkin (48 stone) and won a fancy ribbon and 50 which was a complete surprise (didn't know there was money to be won...!)

Yay! =D

not_so_insig 13-10-2018 11:11 PM

Good news Buttons.

chinahorse 14-10-2018 06:04 AM

Yay buttons! That's fab news. You've been missed :-)

Ooo np well done! Do you have any idea what you'll spend the money on? It should be something nice though and not boring! I demand it :'P

I'm at my uncles and everyone is asleep. Even the cat who loves me but is 19.

nonperson 14-10-2018 09:37 AM

Aw, that's a really old cat. He/she probably spends all the time asleep at that age!

And thanks. =P I'm not actually sure if I'm allowed to keep the money because it was partly a work thing and we have a weird rule about having to declare "gifts" (even freebies like calendars from suppliers!).

I was thinking it would buy me a massive tub of fertiliser for next year, lol! But I'm sure that doesn't count as nice so I'll have to rethink. =P

What're you up to when everyone wakes up?

one_step_closer 14-10-2018 11:27 AM

Nice to see you Buttons, I'm glad you're home now. How are you doing?

Well done NP :-) I hope you get to keep the money and buy something good even if it turns out to be fertiliser!

Hey Lillie, I guess people are awake by now? Are you doing much today?

What's everyone getting up to?

chinahorse 14-10-2018 11:44 AM

Erm a cake as well as fertiliser may be appreciated lol np.

I'm on my epic trek home. Train 1. Before the 2 tubes and train 2. I hate living in the arse end of beyond.
But Billy the cat came and lay on my front with his chin on mine and we had cuddles. He doesn't even mind you touching his paws and ears! My auntie kept trying to get me to take him home lol.

What are you guys up to?

one_step_closer 14-10-2018 11:53 AM

Aww cat cuddles are the best. What a journey Lillie, have you got things to occupy yourself with? Hope the journey goes smoothly.

I've got some housework to do. Might attempt to go for a walk later but I'm not sure.

nonperson 14-10-2018 12:04 PM

Good luck on your travels, Lillie.

Lindsay, hope your weather is better than it is down here, got rain all day so no walk for me.

I need to get off my arse and stop looking at pumpkin stuff, go shopping and then meet my friend later to bore her with more pumpkin stuff!

I'm wondering if I have a problem - is pumpkin addiction a thing? =)

Going to post some pics later.

chinahorse 14-10-2018 12:04 PM

They are!
And nope I was in a bad physical health place when I packed so I barely managed to get clothes and toiletrise together. May buy a book or something.

Ugh housework! Don't remind me. I haven't done mine fully in 2 weeks. Just bits and bobs.
How's the weather where you are? It's grey and wet in London.

chinahorse 14-10-2018 12:05 PM

Pumpkin soup is the best thing ever though. So if your pumpkin talk involves that it's all good np.

nonperson 14-10-2018 12:08 PM

I have a massive (not giant) butternut squash that I'm planning on making into soup later. =)

*waves to Lillie as she passes by on the train?* =P

chinahorse 14-10-2018 12:23 PM

Good but no pumpkin :-(


Am knackered. Being up at 5.45 is catching up with me. And everyone else gets Sunday lunch and to snooze.

Buttons. 14-10-2018 01:18 PM

I concur with Lillie pumpkin soup is EPIC. Damnit now I want some :( Thankyou for all the lovely comments :) I'm especially glad I got discharged as my birthday is on Wednesday and I didn't want to spend it in there!

Cacoethes 14-10-2018 01:42 PM

Hey guyss

Buttons. 14-10-2018 01:50 PM

Hey Beckie :)

chinahorse 14-10-2018 01:50 PM

Ooooo what fun do you have planned buttons?

I hate life. My train tube train journey is now a train tube train bus train taxi journey. Damn line is forever flooding !! And someone has burger king on the train and I want it so bad.
