Aubergine 05-11-2018 10:58 PM

I slept under my heated throw last night. Am doing the same tonight, sharing my bed with the cat. It's delightful! :D

Sleep now, I think. Night night.

nonperson 05-11-2018 11:01 PM

Sounds gloriously toasty! Night night.

Indigo. 05-11-2018 11:51 PM

Night Aubergine! You should totes listen to the audobooks.

Stephen Fry is <3

The winter edition chocolate has Christmas tree shaped pieces.

nonperson 05-11-2018 11:53 PM

Ah I thought it was a special flavour or something.

Indigo. 05-11-2018 11:54 PM

Nah it's just milk chocolate with a tiny bit of white chocolate in it. I find it cute.

nonperson 06-11-2018 12:10 AM

Goodnight. =/

Indigo. 06-11-2018 12:26 AM

Night night NP!

Buttons. 06-11-2018 09:51 AM

Hope everyone slept well, morning all.

Aubergine 06-11-2018 09:54 AM

Buttons! :) Good morning. :)


I slept okish. Was woken at 5am by the cat who was pawing my face! He had food out, so I can only guess that he wanted some fuss. I gave in, as you can't ignore a cat who wants stroking! :) He was happy then and flopped on my be so I went back to sleep! Not long woken up. :)

Buttons. 06-11-2018 10:29 AM

Thanks :)

Ha ha my dog does a less cute version of what your cat does, she paws at face then if that doens't work stands on my hair as she knows that will get a reaction -_-

Aubergine 06-11-2018 10:34 AM

How are you? :)


Hehe, how funny! She sounds great. :D

nonperson 06-11-2018 10:42 AM

I eventually went to sleep at 2am and woke up at 7:30... =/

Cat's still in bed under the covers!

Eska 06-11-2018 10:59 AM

Morning to everyone and everyone's pets.

Cacoethes 06-11-2018 11:23 AM

Hello everyone

Aubergine 06-11-2018 11:39 AM

Morning Person and Eska and Beckie. How's it going?

nonperson 06-11-2018 11:42 AM

Morning Aubergine and all.

It's going ok. I'm trying to ressurect my dying orchids... and trying to cull some too. =/

How're you?

Aubergine 06-11-2018 11:47 AM

Well done on trying to ressurect them. If anyone can do it it's you!


I'm OK thanks. Bit sleepy, but OK. :)

Eska 06-11-2018 11:51 AM

I'm almost caught up in work :)

Other than that a bit meh, but never mind.

Cacoethes 06-11-2018 12:01 PM

Hope your orchids turn out ok!!

What's everyone up to today?

Eska 06-11-2018 12:14 PM

Good luck with the orchids!

Aubergine I hope you feel more awake soon :) I'm glad you're doing ok.

Beckie, I'm in work and it's averagely busy. Nothing super exciting.

Aubergine 06-11-2018 12:14 PM

Sorry that you're a bit meh, Eska. :( *hug*


I am currently still in my bed, under my heated throw. I have work at 2pm. Then I plan on not doing much! :)

Eska 06-11-2018 12:16 PM

Aubergine that sounds cosy! I hope work goes well too.

Cacoethes 06-11-2018 12:19 PM

Hope work is ok today both of you!

Sounds so cosy Aubergine

Aubergine 06-11-2018 12:19 PM

Thank you. :) We were super busy yesterday. Mondays always are, as there's a dermatology satellite clinic that comes from the city. Not really any grumpy people though, so that's OK. :)


What time are you working until?

one_step_closer 06-11-2018 12:21 PM

Afternoon, hope you're all having an ok day at least.

Aubergine 06-11-2018 12:27 PM

Afternoon Lindsay. How are you?

Cacoethes 06-11-2018 12:27 PM

That's good Aubergine.
Grumpy people are no fun!

Hi Lindsay
How are you?

Im just off for my swim!

Aubergine 06-11-2018 12:27 PM

Have fun swimming!

nonperson 06-11-2018 12:28 PM

Hey Lindsay.

Orchids are all soaking in water and I've been fighting with/cable tying wires on the shelving. It's finally tidy! I think I might have posted the work-in-progress photo on here when I originally installed the lighting last year! And shamefully the wires have stayed a tangled mess until now. =/

one_step_closer 06-11-2018 12:29 PM

Hi Aubergine and Beckie.

Have you moved from bed yet Aubergine? Lunch will be needed before work!

I hope you enjoy your swim Beckie.

I've got my reading group at 2pm. Hoping my favourite lady will come back as she wasn't going to because of the noisy children at 3.30pm so we're starting at 2pm instead of 2.30pm to try and avoid them.

one_step_closer 06-11-2018 12:30 PM

Hi NP.

That sounds like quite a job! I remember the photos you posted at some point. :-)

nonperson 06-11-2018 12:47 PM

It's always best to avoid noisy children..!

Not hugely interesting but before and after pics:




Plants are all over the kitchen floor.

one_step_closer 06-11-2018 12:49 PM

Untangling wires can be frustrating, good job!

Aubergine 06-11-2018 12:55 PM

Good work, Person! You're awesome!



Just remembered that my uniform is still in the washing machine from last night. D:

nonperson 06-11-2018 01:02 PM

Whoops. Hair dryer it? Or... tuck it under your heated throw with you and the cat! That'll dry it off in no time. =P

Aubergine 06-11-2018 01:17 PM

The hair dryer came to the rescue! Thankfully my washing machine has a decent spin on it too. :)


I need to leave at 13:30. Boo.

Cacoethes 06-11-2018 02:16 PM

Hope work goes ok Aubergine!

My swim was cut short (only by 5 mins) because one of the special needs kids had a seizure in the pool and we all had to get out and there was an alarm.
I think he's ok though. They all left early.

Indigo. 06-11-2018 02:24 PM

Hey guys!

Hope you have a good day at work Aubergine.

And I hope you enjoy your reading group Lindsay.

Well done on detangling everything NP. Hope the orchids come back to life!

Was your swim nice Beckie? EDIT: Oh dear, I hope the kid was ok!

not_so_insig 06-11-2018 02:34 PM

I have been swimming. Annoyingly the road through my village is still shut even though according to the council website it should be open. Thankfully my dad took me otherwise I wouldn't go.

Swimming was interesting. Someone took my locker! For some reason they divided the pool into lanes so that meant I had to swim under a rope to get to the ladder.

Indigo. 06-11-2018 02:46 PM

Hi Dawn! It sucks the road is still shut, I hope it opens soon.

I am a fan of lanes! How did you find them?

not_so_insig 06-11-2018 02:48 PM

It was ok except I was anxious about getting out.

Indigo. 06-11-2018 02:52 PM

Fair enough, I think I would have been anxious myself, especially if things had changed unexpectedly.

Are you up to much this afternoon?

not_so_insig 06-11-2018 03:00 PM

Not really. I have a pip assessment tomorrow so I had to find my council tax bill for it but I found it now so I don't have to search for it. I just have to wash my towels after swimming though

Indigo. 06-11-2018 03:08 PM

Good luck with your pip assessment!

It sounds like you can relax until tomorrow :)

one_step_closer 06-11-2018 03:53 PM

Hope work is going alright Aubergine.

Emergencies in swimming pools/gyms scare me! At least you weren't 5 minutes into your swim Beckie. What are you doing with the rest of your day?

Good luck with your PIP assessment Dawn.

How are you doing Lucy?

The reading group was very quiet, just me and 3 other people. My favourite lady isn't coming back.

Cacoethes 06-11-2018 03:59 PM

Luckily the kid was fine
Saw him outside sitting with a carer when I left
I have slimming world tonight.
That's it.
But it's Tuesday which means PIZZA NIGHT! :-D

that's a shame shes leaving Lindsay
Did you enioy the group though?

one_step_closer 06-11-2018 04:03 PM

Yay for pizza! Will you be having your usual topping?

I don't really say much at the group so it's a bit awkward but it was a little easier today because there were less people and the book we have been given seems like it might be interesting.

Cacoethes 06-11-2018 04:05 PM

I have a cheese feast stuffed crust. Nom!

Sounds ok!
Hope the book is good

one_step_closer 06-11-2018 04:10 PM

Where are you getting the pizza from? I hope you enjoy every single bit! Have you ever had a hotdog stuffed crust?

Cacoethes 06-11-2018 04:17 PM

Its only one from asda but they are very tasty!!
I have had a hotdog stuffed crust. Love it!!
