Heya. :)

nonperson 05-05-2018 12:00 AM

Watching Big Bang now. Much better. =)

Hi Aubergine!

Aubergine 05-05-2018 12:05 AM

Hooray for Big Bang! :)


I'm listening to music. :)

nonperson 05-05-2018 12:06 AM

Good stuff. =)

How's your cold?

Aubergine 05-05-2018 12:13 AM

Much better! I still have a tiny bit of a sore throat and a sniffly nose, but I don't feel ill anymore. :D


How has your day been?

Serendipity. 05-05-2018 12:15 AM

Yay, glad you're feeling better Ducky! :)

zombiehunter 05-05-2018 12:15 AM

EGGPLANT :-D

nonperson 05-05-2018 12:16 AM

Ah that is good it didn't last too long!

My day was absolutely hectic! But got three days off now =D

Aubergine 05-05-2018 12:17 AM

Thanks Hannah! How are you feeling?



Zombie! :D

Aubergine 05-05-2018 12:17 AM

Hooray for three days off!

Serendipity. 05-05-2018 12:18 AM

Yay for three days off NP :) Any plans?

Hey Zombie! How's it going?

I'm still feeling ill and sorry for myself Ducky :P

nonperson 05-05-2018 12:25 AM

No, no plans.... other than the usual, tidy the garden, etc...

Oh no, Hannah! That sucks. :( I hope you're looking after yourself!


Tidying the garden etc sounds OK. What's the weather supposed to be like your end?


My Dad is coming over for fajitas and nachos! With my step-mum. Which means I will have to tidy the flat, which seems to be a never ending job. :P

Aubergine 05-05-2018 12:33 AM

(Cat says hi)

nonperson 05-05-2018 12:36 AM

Oh my, Alec is so adorable!!

Weather's meant to be full sun and hot hot hot here.... which usually makes me want to just hide away more than normal. But should make the most of it and do some weeding or at least wash the car.

That sounds nice having your dad and step-mum over! I'm sure they won't notice if the flat is a little bit untidy.

Aubergine 05-05-2018 12:39 AM

Washing the car could be fun in the hot weather! Lots of water to cool down with. :D


Yeah, it should be nice. I find hosting a bit stressful, but I'm sure it'll be OK. Can't go far wrong with fajitas and nachos, can you?!

nonperson 05-05-2018 12:43 AM

Last time I washed the car I nearly froze to death so the hot weather will be a nice change. =)

Hosting definitely is stressful! My mum is very critical of my cleanliness... =/ But fajitas and nachos sound excellent! I might crash the party too, haha. ;-)

Aubergine 05-05-2018 12:47 AM

Hehe! No freezing to death! :D


Hmm, yes, my Dad's the same. Not cool.

zombiehunter 05-05-2018 12:52 AM

I got distracted by youtube :-p

I'm all good here thanks serendipitydoodah :-D

nonperson 05-05-2018 12:57 AM

Also goes to show how often I (don't) wash my car.... and it's white!

My mum came to stay here for a bit a few years ago and cleaned all the skirting boards because she was appalled....

My sister's on the same wavelength as me though and says "Who's got the time for that?!" Much better things to be doing. =)

chinahorse 05-05-2018 06:47 AM

Alec is so cute!!!


I've been awake since 6am. Perils of a- going to sleep at 8.30 and b- waking up at 6.30am for work all week.

Serendipity. 05-05-2018 08:46 AM

Oh no Lillie! No one should have to be awake at that time :'( Any plans for today?

I have to go to work this afternoon. Moan moan. I really do not want to!

chinahorse 05-05-2018 11:11 AM

I went back tk sleep and have only just woken up again!

Boo to work. Is it a long shift?

not_so_insig 05-05-2018 12:43 PM

Hello all. I am watching badminton (the horse competition not the racquet sport) today so that's my weekend sorted. I am going to miss tomorrow's coverage as I will be out having a life.

Serendipity. 05-05-2018 01:34 PM

Glad you got more sleep Lillie! How's your afternoon looking?

Sounds good Dawn.

Not super long Lillie, 2-10. Tomorrow I have 7.45-10. I might actually cry.

Aubergine 05-05-2018 01:37 PM

Heya. :)

nonperson 05-05-2018 01:44 PM

Afternoon.

Aubergine 05-05-2018 01:45 PM

Hey Person! How goes it?

nonperson 05-05-2018 01:57 PM

Ehh, see thread. =)

How're you?

Aubergine 05-05-2018 02:04 PM

Alright thanks. I woke up a reasonable time, but dozed on and off with the cat. Cat is now well and truly awake, so so am I! I really need to tidy and bake banana muffins and go to the shop to get nachos...

nonperson 05-05-2018 02:10 PM

What time are your guests coming? Better to get stuff done now rather than rush around later.

Aubergine 05-05-2018 02:13 PM

Between 5pm and 6pm. Really, really need to move.

nonperson 05-05-2018 02:18 PM

*kicks?*

Aubergine 05-05-2018 02:28 PM

Haha thanks! :P


I'm going to move at 14:30. It'll take half an hourish to tidy the flat, then about 15 minutes to go to the shop and back, then baking is fine because as long as it's in the oven by the time they come it's no bother and I'm only baking something easy - pretty much just "shove all ingredients in bowl and mix together..."

nonperson 05-05-2018 02:45 PM

That's my kind of baking, if I ever do it. =)

Except without banana. Yuck.

Serendipity. 05-05-2018 03:47 PM

Sounds yummy Ducky! I'll come round for dinner too :P

I got sent home from work. Win!

one_step_closer 05-05-2018 04:03 PM

Are you ok Hannah?

nonperson 05-05-2018 04:32 PM

Did you at least get a Krispy Kreme before you left?!

Serendipity. 05-05-2018 04:33 PM

Oh yeah I'm okay, just have a bad cold/cough/thing.

How are you Lindsay?

Serendipity. 05-05-2018 04:34 PM

I didn't! The service users had got hold of them and there were none left! :'(

nonperson 05-05-2018 04:42 PM

Oh that's rubbish! =(

one_step_closer 05-05-2018 04:45 PM

I don't know the full context here but maybe you need to be putting yummy things in a safe from now on!

Will you be taking it easy for the rest of the day then?

chinahorse 05-05-2018 05:01 PM

Glad you don't have to work when you're ill hannah (fairly sure thats your name?). Shame you didmtadid manage to nab a donut though!!

I've been shopping and spent way too much money. Oops. It's so sunny here :)

I'm now chilling in my pj's in front of the tele.

Have you managed to get going aubergine?

Serendipity. 05-05-2018 05:32 PM

Ooh, did you buy anything nice Lillie? Yeah, it's Hannah :)

I know, I was genuinely upset about the donuts!

I'm sitting in a park drinking iced coffee :) Bit cheeky when I've been sent home, but can't let the weather go to waste!

not_so_insig 05-05-2018 05:34 PM

I have finished watching badminton. It was good.

chinahorse 05-05-2018 05:37 PM

Haha I feel like I'm 'wasting' the weather too. Such a british thing.

I got a couple of dressed, a car die some cheap shoes and some coasters. Not sure if I'm Gunna keep one of the dresses though.

I totally forgot badminton was on!

not_so_insig 05-05-2018 05:42 PM

The showjumping is on tomorrow so you can watch it chinahorse.

one_step_closer 05-05-2018 06:35 PM

Hannah, that sounds like a nice way to spend time especially when you're feeling unwell. Good weather is usually good for your health anyway so you're technically looking after yourself!

Lillie, sounds like you had a successful shopping trip. What's on TV for you this evening?

Dawn, have you seen any horse events in person or just on the TV?

chinahorse 05-05-2018 06:53 PM

Might put a dvd on- there seems to be not a lot on the actual tv.

What's everyone up to?

one_step_closer 05-05-2018 07:22 PM

Will you watch a DVD you've already seen or something new?

I'm going to try and read in a bit and then watch some TV, got shows to catch up with.
