Well done on your tidying. I find listening to music helps when I’m doing the washing up.

Sketchy 16-01-2018 06:35 PM

Thanks Nonperson. I’ll give it some thought.

Aubergine 16-01-2018 06:43 PM

I've heard good things about yoga for mental health. Partly why I'd quite like to try it. I'm hoping this thing on Sunday will be good. There were only two places left when I booked, so it must be pretty popular. This thing is in a village hall, but apparently there's a yoga studio two roads down from where I live, so that might be handy!


I try to do washing up mindfully. Sometimes I find that along with music can make it more appealing. It's usually just the thought of it. Plus the fact I'm really lazy. :P

Sketchy 16-01-2018 06:45 PM

Just think how good you will feel when it’s done.

Aubergine 16-01-2018 06:53 PM

That's very true! I think I will do it when Mum's gone. She's popping in at about 7pm. :)

Sketchy 16-01-2018 06:57 PM

That’s nice that your mum is visiting.

I’ve had the fire and heating on a while now and my flat is all toasty. Already got my onesie on. I’m just going to have a night in front of the tv.

Aubergine 16-01-2018 07:06 PM

Oh that sounds lovely. Love a toasty flat. Night in front of the TV with your onesie sounds great. What's on?

Sketchy 16-01-2018 07:09 PM

There’s nothing much on. I might put a dvd on. Probably doctor who.

Aubergine 16-01-2018 07:35 PM

Sounds good! Mum popped in, but didn't stay long because she'd had some sad news and needed to go and see one of her friends. It was nice to see her for a bit though. :)

Sketchy 16-01-2018 07:44 PM

I’m sorry she had sad news. Hope you are both ok.

Aubergine 16-01-2018 07:46 PM

Thank you. :)


It's very windy and rainy tonight. The wind is flying down the extractor fan in my bathroom and whipping around the flat! It's very noisy.

Sketchy 16-01-2018 07:48 PM

It’s been windy here too, and snowy.
I bet you’re glad to be indoors, but that noise must be annoying.

Do you have any plans for tomorrow?

Aubergine 16-01-2018 08:07 PM

I am very grateful for having a roof over my head and a toasty heated throw! It is very noisy though.


I am picking my little cousins up from school tomorrow. They are 7 and 9. I am looking forward to seeing them and spending time with them for an hour before my Aunt and Uncle get back from their trip to the city.

Sketchy 16-01-2018 08:12 PM

Hope you all have fun.

I’m grateful too to have a roof over my head.

I might have a look at my sewing books and get some inspiration. I’ve got lots of gorgeous fabric that’s begging to be used.

Aubergine 16-01-2018 08:16 PM

That sounds like a good idea. Weren't you thinking of making a painting apron?

Sketchy 16-01-2018 08:20 PM

I am yes. My books have some apron ideas in them. I need to get painting done too. I haven’t updated my art blog in a while. Need to get to work again.

chinahorse 16-01-2018 08:24 PM

Evening all :)

Aubergine 16-01-2018 08:24 PM

Sounds good! One thing at a time though, I guess. Do what you fancy first! You're so amazing and creative. :)

Aubergine 16-01-2018 08:24 PM

Hey Lillie!

Sketchy 16-01-2018 08:26 PM

Hey Lillie. How are you?

Aww thanks Aubergine. I feel like just sitting down to sew. I’m a bit too tired to paint just now.

chinahorse 16-01-2018 08:27 PM

You make me wanna start crocheting again lorraine!

Im tired but chilling in my onesie after a nice long hot shower.

Sketchy 16-01-2018 08:31 PM

You should Lillie. You were doing so well with it.

I’m in my onesie too. Onesies are great in this weather, except when you need the toilet. :(

Aubergine 16-01-2018 08:34 PM

Hehe. The toilet thing is the one thing that puts me off onesies!

Sketchy 16-01-2018 08:40 PM

Thankfully I have a radiator that works very well in the bathroom. Still annoying though.

not_so_insig 16-01-2018 08:41 PM

I have snow.

Turns out I am not getting new neighbours yet as a notice has gone up saying that a company is going to be working in the flat and that they apologise in advance for the noise. If the noise is excessive or have any complaints to phone this number. Just as long as they don't wake me up early and I can hear the telly I don't care.

Sketchy 16-01-2018 08:42 PM

I hope they aren’t too noisy Dawn.

not_so_insig 16-01-2018 08:49 PM

I hope so too.

Aubergine 16-01-2018 08:49 PM

Yes, still annoying!



I have a really old fashioned radiator in my bathroom. It's really high up the wall and you have to pull a string to turn it on. It does chuck out a lot of head though, so it's not all bad!


I might make my dinner.

chinahorse 16-01-2018 08:51 PM

Haha the loo thing can be a pain. But I wear a vest so its not too horrific.

At least they will probably be quickk Dawn, considering they will want to re-let it so that they get money.

Aubergine 16-01-2018 09:05 PM

I think I'll stick with my thin, cotton pyjamas with a cold bedroom and a really toasty bed. M favourite!

Sketchy 16-01-2018 09:31 PM

Enjoy your dinner Aubergine. Hope you have something yummy.

Aubergine 17-01-2018 10:40 AM

Hey. :)

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 10:41 AM

Hey guys
Im at the uni for my interview
The phone signal is rubbish!!

Aubergine 17-01-2018 11:02 AM

Oh good luck, Beckie! :)

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 12:28 PM

Thanks!
It was ok.
Don't think I did too well though!
You had to demonstrate a 'non clinical skill' so just something random and i didn't find that out until this morning when others were talking about it.
So I just made a paper aeroplane. You had to talk them through how to make it.
Some others skills were sign language and doing a hair style.
Bit of a random thing to do for an interview.

Aubergine 17-01-2018 12:42 PM

Well done for doing it. Bet you've done better that you think. :)


What are your plans for the rest of the afternoon?

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 12:47 PM

Thanks :)
Im just on my way back to mum's.
Well near mum's and she'll pick me up.
I have to get on unfamiliar buses which is both exciting and scary!

What about you?

Aubergine 17-01-2018 12:56 PM

Oh going to your mum's sounds good. What will you do there?


I'm lying on my bed. So, so tired. Picking my cousins up from primary school later. Going to take them to w h Smith's so they can choose a book each. I really don't treat them very often. :)

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 01:19 PM

Not sure what the plan is yet

Aww that sounds nice
Hope you have a good time!

Aubergine 17-01-2018 01:36 PM

Well I hope you have fun whatever you do!


Thanks. :) They're great, so it should be good. 7 year old is hilarious!

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 05:46 PM

Finally home.
I am shattered!

Aubergine 17-01-2018 05:53 PM

Early night, Beckie?

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 06:14 PM

Definitely!
Got college tomorrow as well so early start.
I am freezing because I've just eaten ice cream :p

How was your time with your cousins

Eska 17-01-2018 06:44 PM

Ice cream in this weather? It's tipping it down and cold here!

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 06:47 PM

Yeah not a great choice.
It was tasty though!

How are you eska?

Eska 17-01-2018 06:51 PM

I'm ok, a bit tired. Just on my way home from work now though so I should be able to curl up in the warm and maybe do some drawing.

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 07:00 PM

That sounds good :)

I've just made myself a hot chocolate

Eska 17-01-2018 07:27 PM

That seems more seasonal!

Cacoethes 17-01-2018 07:51 PM

Yep!
I'm pretty much warmed up now!

Sketchy 18-01-2018 11:24 AM

Good morning everyone.

I’m still at my sister’s after staying overnight. Been playing with the cat who has been adorable.
