That is shocking indeed.

Aubergine 10-09-2018 06:35 PM

I think asda is going to make less profit without Beckie!

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 06:42 PM

Haha!
I'm sure they've all been wondering where I've been :p

Aubergine 10-09-2018 06:43 PM

I expect they are wondering where you got to!

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 06:46 PM

Probably! Haha!

Aubergine 10-09-2018 06:49 PM

I couldn't finish my dinner. Eating was too much effort. So, so tired.

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 06:54 PM

Sounds like you need an early night!

one_step_closer 10-09-2018 06:54 PM

Beckie now you shop in Aldi you have, have, have to try the Dairy Fine Mini Delights (the milk chocolate ones with milky centre).

Are you able to take it easy for the rest of the day Aubergine?

I'm wishing there was some kind of acceptable t-shirt or badge or something that would let people know if you're having an anxious day so they don't have too much awkward contact or make jokes that might hurt. And also to keep the charity fundraisers away.

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 06:59 PM

Ooo that sounds yummy!
I'll look for some tomorrow.

That would be very handy Lindsay!

Aubergine 10-09-2018 07:03 PM

That would be good, Lindsay! You could make yourself one?

one_step_closer 10-09-2018 07:04 PM

The problem I find with Aldi is that they sell all their yummy stuff in multipacks and I have no self restraint when it comes to having multipacks of yummy things in my house.

I'm feeling quite physically unwell but other than that I'm ok for now I think.

What are you getting up to Beckie?

one_step_closer 10-09-2018 07:05 PM

Aubergine, I would be too socially anxious to wear something letting people know I'm socially anxious! :laugh:

Aubergine 10-09-2018 07:07 PM

Haha Lindsay! I know what you mean!

I'm sorry that you're feeling physically unwell. What's up?

one_step_closer 10-09-2018 07:11 PM

Nothing major, likely just a cold. I tend to feel sorry for myself easily when it comes to physical stuff!

Do people like the evenings getting dark earlier or not?

Aubergine 10-09-2018 07:14 PM

Colds can make you feel rotten. take good care of yourself.


I don't mind the dark evenings.

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 07:18 PM

I tend to not have much self restraint with yummy things either!!

Colds are no fun :(

Dark evenings are fine
Although my town has been hit by a bit of a crime wave which is sad so it makes me not want to be out of the house when its darker.

nonperson 10-09-2018 07:21 PM

I like that the evenings are cooler.

I don't like it so much when I get up and it's dark, go to work in the dark and then come home and it's already dark. =/

Hello everyone.

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 07:25 PM

Yeah its so much harder to wake up properly when it's dark!

one_step_closer 10-09-2018 07:25 PM

Dark makes me feel like I can't be bothered doing much. I miss it being light in the evening to go for a walk.

How are you doing NP?

Aubergine 10-09-2018 07:33 PM

Hey Person! How're you doing


I love cosy nights in. i don't like how much I end up spending on heating...

nonperson 10-09-2018 07:33 PM

I have one of those wake up alarm clocks that simulates sunrise. I've found that makes a big difference for me. It makes waking up much more gentle.

Hi Lindsay. I'm alright... Trying to get up off the sofa to make dinner.

nonperson 10-09-2018 07:33 PM

Ninja post, Aubergine. See comment above. =)

Aubergine 10-09-2018 07:40 PM

The alarm clock sounds good!

What's for dinner?

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 07:40 PM

Ugh heating is so expensive!!

That alarm clock sounds cool np

nonperson 10-09-2018 07:43 PM

It is cool. One of the best things I've ever treated myself to.

Dinner is the microwave curry stuff I didn't have yesterday. Need to go to the shop later too... Boo.. =(

Aubergine 10-09-2018 07:43 PM

Heating is super expensive. I have electric heating that isn't very efficient at all. My top up meter goes down quickly!

Aubergine 10-09-2018 07:45 PM

Oh no. Why do you have to go to the shop? Microwave curry sounds lovely!

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 07:46 PM

I have gas heating which I am told is better than electric (I have no clue about any of this stuff)
Although when I get my disabled heating allowance thing in the winter, it always goes on my electric key.

Aubergine 10-09-2018 07:48 PM

Oh I get that too. it's so handy when do we have to start applying for it? Do you know?

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 07:51 PM

It is fantastic!
I don't think I'd survive the winter without it!
I think it's October that you can start applying.

Aubergine 10-09-2018 08:09 PM

Nope, nor would I. I'd freeze to death or go broke! So grateful for them crediting my meter!

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 08:16 PM

Yep me too!
Such a good scheme.
Warm home discount! That's what it's called!
I'd forgotten. Lol!

Aubergine 10-09-2018 08:18 PM

I just googled it! I'd forgotten what it was called too!

You up to much?

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 08:22 PM

Just watching mock the week

How about you?

Aubergine 10-09-2018 08:25 PM

You are always watching mock the week, it seems!
I'm just lying on my sofa trying to work up the motivation to go into my bedroom!

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 08:32 PM

Haha! Yes it is my night time programme of choice at the moment!

You must be tired!

Aubergine 10-09-2018 08:35 PM

It is really funny, I'll give you that! I like watching comedy at night too!

I am very tired. My bedroom is about seven steps away!

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 08:37 PM

It makes me literally lol!
Good to go to bed on a good note

You can do it!!

Aubergine 10-09-2018 08:39 PM

Definitely good to go to bed on a good note. None of this horror film malarkey!

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 08:42 PM

Oh no horror films this late!!
I'd never sleep!

Aubergine 10-09-2018 08:44 PM

I used to love horror films when I was younger. won't watch them at all now!

Cacoethes 10-09-2018 08:50 PM

I have recently discovered I like horror films despite not being able to stand them before!!
Its weird how quick that changed only about a week ago!

I'm gonna go to bed.
You should too!!
Night :)

Aubergine 10-09-2018 08:59 PM

Night night, Beckie. sleep well!

nonperson 10-09-2018 10:01 PM

Emergency shopping all done.

Aubergine 10-09-2018 10:06 PM

Well done. What did you get?

nonperson 10-09-2018 10:14 PM

Nothing exciting. =/

And my neighbours have finally got back. I was expecting them back at 6ish...

Aubergine 10-09-2018 10:30 PM

Boo to nothing exciting. :(


Oh dear. Did they get caught in traffic or something? As least they're home now and you can hand the dog back over!

nonperson 10-09-2018 10:46 PM

I don't know what happened... One of them told me "late" and then the other said "normal time". I haven't spoken to them tonight, just saw the car was back. The dog was already in his outdoor kennel thingy so no hand over to do.

nonperson 10-09-2018 11:15 PM

I think I just saw a big spider run under my coffee table...……..

chinahorse 11-09-2018 12:39 AM

Eek NP! The only answer is to burn your house down and start again!!

I went for a nap 7.5 hours ago. It was still light and Monday! !
