Aubergine 09-04-2018 07:42 AM

OK thanks. Though I still look like someone has punched me in the face - stupid tooth!

Getting out of bed is overrated!

chinahorse 09-04-2018 07:48 AM

Eek! When will you be able to make it to your proper dentist?

It is but I really need the loo as I went to sleep at like 9 last night.

Aubergine 09-04-2018 07:57 AM

I'm going to phone my dentist this morning. They open at 8:30am. Hoping for an appointment this week, but not Friday because I'm at work 9am - 6pm. Fingers crossed they can accommodate!

Ohh that is so annoying.

chinahorse 09-04-2018 08:19 AM

Fingers crossed for you!

My tv remote has died :( and my tv doesn't have buttons to work it manually.

Pomegranate 09-04-2018 08:19 AM

Do they not do emergency same day appts?

chinahorse 09-04-2018 08:25 AM

An emergency appointment wouldn't be long enough to treat in. The emergency dentist she saw would have done the job of an emergency appointment.

Aubergine 09-04-2018 08:26 AM

Oh no, Lillie. :( Is it the batteries?

Hey Emma. :)

I think they do, but I don't know if this counts as an emergency, as I'm already on antibiotics from the emergency dentist yesterday, and I don't think they'll do anything until there's less swelling/infection. Hoping that the receptionist has some idea! :)

chinahorse 09-04-2018 08:29 AM

I hoped it was but I've changed them and it still won't work.

Aubergine 09-04-2018 08:31 AM

Oh dear. Can ou get one of those universal remotes? Not sure how much they are. Or is it still in guarantee?

Aubergine 09-04-2018 08:36 AM

Currently number ten in the call queue...

chinahorse 09-04-2018 08:49 AM

Nah it's older than a year and was cheap off of amazon. I'll have to get a universal one and hope that works.

I'm getting a lift to work but he's going to make me late whereas if I walked I've have been early. So annoying. So I'm eating cake for breakfast.

Hopefully you're further up the queue now?

Aubergine 09-04-2018 08:57 AM

I hope a universal one works. :)

Oh, that is really annoying. :( Ooo cake. What kind?

I got through! Got a 10 minute appointment next Monday at 2:20pm for x-ray and for my dentist to see what she needs to do, then can book in to have done whatever needs to be done. :) Will have to see if I can use some of my TOIL to start at 3pm instea of 2pm, but it should be fine.

Aubergine 09-04-2018 09:03 AM

Phoned work and can have TOIL and start at 3pm next monday, so can see dentist. :)

not_so_insig 09-04-2018 12:47 PM

Afternoon all

Aubergine 09-04-2018 01:03 PM

Hey Dawn. How are you?

Aubergine 09-04-2018 01:31 PM

Sat on my sofa, under my heated throw, with a cat asleep on my legs. Unfortunately I have to eave for work in about 15 minutes, so will have to disturb him shortly. :(

Buttons. 09-04-2018 02:22 PM

^ Poor kitty

I am currently trying to reboot my energy after 3 days hosp and when finally getting home having to go to Tesco, but have completed the Tesco (and the hosp obv) support worker has just gone home and I can now chillax and turn Orange is the new black back on and watch under a newly washed and dried blanket so alll goooood.

Hope everyone is doing okay <3

one_step_closer 09-04-2018 02:57 PM

Aubergine, I hope you didn't feel too sad about disturbing Alec.

Hope you're managing to relax Buttons. What season of OITNB are you watching? I only watched part of the very first episode then couldn't be bothered continuing. I liked the book though.

Buttons. 09-04-2018 03:50 PM

Thanks Lins :) How are you? I'm actually on the 5th series (never seen before) I got bored in first one or two seasons then started again recently.

Pomegranate 09-04-2018 05:59 PM

Morning all!

nonperson 09-04-2018 06:12 PM

Morning, Pomegranate. What time is it over there?!

not_so_insig 09-04-2018 06:17 PM

I have been doing my combined SI/OD free reward today. Still haven't quite finished so will continue tomorrow. Ice cream has been consumed (and it was a new company and flavour but I only got it because it was half price) and face pack has been put on. More snacks will be consumed tomorrow and my nails will be painted, lip gloss on and a spray of perfume.

Buttons. 09-04-2018 06:22 PM

Hey NP :)

Well done Dawn!

nonperson 09-04-2018 06:33 PM

Hey Buttons. =)

Who wants to come cook me dinner?

Aubergine 09-04-2018 06:55 PM

Heya! :)

zombiehunter 09-04-2018 06:55 PM

we're having curry for dinner if you make it up in time you can have some too :-p

nonperson 09-04-2018 07:04 PM

*hijacks a passing plane...!*

nonperson 09-04-2018 07:04 PM

Hi Aubergine. =)

Aubergine 09-04-2018 07:06 PM

Hey Zombie and Person. :)

How's it going?

Alec survived me going back to work! He greeted me at the door, which of course won him Dreamies! We're currently on the cheese ones and they're a hit!

nonperson 09-04-2018 07:11 PM

The cheese ones are by far the best. And I've tried one - they do taste cheesy!

It's going ok... wishing the rain would go away and that Amazon would actually find my house for a change.

Aubergine 09-04-2018 07:13 PM

You've tried one?! Haha!

Aubergine 09-04-2018 07:16 PM

Sorry, the cat managed to post that...

It has been a horrible, rainy day. I spent 4 hours of it in a windowless box though, so you know...

Where did Amazon leave your parcel?!

nonperson 09-04-2018 07:21 PM

Didn't see what the cat posted..!

And yes of course I've tried one... or... some. =D

I have no idea. They told me they'd delivered it but I was home and they didn't even come to the house so who knows where it is. I could go have a nose around and see if it's somewhere nearby but I'll just wait for it to surface tomorrow...

Aubergine 09-04-2018 07:28 PM

Hahaha. :) One of my friend's ate one at a church meeting at someone's house once. He's not coming here and eating MY cat's Dreamies. :P

Could you use Amazon's online chat thing to ask them where they've put it? That's what I've had to do a couple of times and I live in a fairly straigh-forward place!

nonperson 09-04-2018 07:43 PM

According to Amazon it was put by my front door/porch... which it wasn't so that's probably all they would be able to tell me.

It'll turn up, usually does. =)

Aubergine 09-04-2018 07:45 PM

Oh, well that's handy! I hope it gets to you soon. :)

Cat is in his favourite position - on my legs, with the heated throw underneath him. :)

nonperson 09-04-2018 07:47 PM

I knew he'd like your heated throw.

Mine's in the airing cupboard - his favourite rainy day/cold weather place.

Thanks Buttons. I have been watching a dvd of The Railway Children. Got the longest out of the way but I am watching all 3 versions with Jenny Agutter in.

chinahorse 09-04-2018 07:52 PM

evening all :)

wish I was small enough to hide in the airing cupboard

Aubergine 09-04-2018 07:57 PM

He sure does, Person! Though now I should really draw the curtains and put the light on and make some dinner and take medication, but I don't want to disturb the cat...

Sounds good, Dawn! Congratulations!

Wouldn't that be good, Lillie?!

nonperson 09-04-2018 08:03 PM

A normal-sized person could actually get in my airing cupboard. =)

Aubergine 09-04-2018 08:07 PM

Cool! I might pop round. :P

nonperson 09-04-2018 08:09 PM

Not sure if the cat would let you in. ;-)

chinahorse 09-04-2018 08:10 PM

I'll share it with the cat :)

chinahorse 09-04-2018 08:17 PM

Carrot fries are DISGUSTING. And then I dropped a dollop of red sauce down my front.
And I'm hungry still cos of said horrible not chips.

Aubergine 09-04-2018 08:26 PM

Think Lillie, the cat and me could fit in there, Person?

I'm sorry that dinner was horrible, Lillie. :(

Well, I moved. Had dinner (Farley's Rusks and milk is a legitimate meal, right?), took meds, changed my bed (clean sheets!), turned the light on and drew the curtains. Cat watched me do it all, then he had a drink, and is now asleep on me (and the heated throw) again!

chinahorse 09-04-2018 08:44 PM

Its obviously tiring being a kitty cat!!

And lol, suppose its err nutritionally balanced for a toddler :P

Aubergine 09-04-2018 08:51 PM

Hah! Not for a 30 year old?

Have you got anything else in you can have for dinner, Lillie?

chinahorse 09-04-2018 08:53 PM

Not reeeaaallllllllyyyyy aubergine. No.

I have everything in lol. I spent like 65 quid in aldi on tuesday 55 or so on food alone. Might have some ice cream but I'm cold already.

Aubergine 10-04-2018 11:05 AM

Morning. :)
