Cool. I really liked the Hobbit films. :) Have you seen it before?

Bed at a reasonable time sounds like a good plan. Can't imagine being sleep deprived and going to the shop is much fun either! I hope it's OK at the shop and that you can whizz in and out in not too much time. :)

2 year olds are lovely, but they have so, so much energy. It's only an hour and a halfish of actually being with them (more time for set up and clear down, and they come into the main church for the first 15 or so minutes), but they're exhausting! Like little whirlwinds!

nonperson 24-02-2018 11:02 PM

I have seen it before. I find I need to concentrate on it a lot though so it's only on in the background for now.

Shop is never fun, sleep deprived or not! It should be fine though if I get there for opening. Actually got lots to do tomorrow, eek.

I don't know how you look after children especially 8 of them! 45 minutes of being with my friend's one year old is exhausting enough for me!

Aubergine 24-02-2018 11:05 PM

No, shops aren't ever fun! Lots to do? Eep. Have you got a plan?

There are two of us looking after the eight, but it's still rather a lot of entertaining. Rather frazzling!

nonperson 24-02-2018 11:13 PM

Shopping, laundry, looking after my friend's dog at lunch and I wanted to do a few garden bits too and make my friend's mug cake so it's there for when she gets home =) I think I have a plan!

That's still four children each, eek! I'd have no idea what to do with them all. Not a kid person. =P

Cheryl88 24-02-2018 11:37 PM

Hi guys. I've been out all day and now I'm lying comfortably in bed watching Taggart.

How's everyone's weekend going?

nonperson 24-02-2018 11:54 PM

Hey. =)

The Hobbit has just finished so I'm actually going to head to bed now.

Night night.

Cheryl88 24-02-2018 11:56 PM

Night night, sleep well.

chinahorse 25-02-2018 09:41 AM

Good morning!

This time on a Sunday should be illegal. *grumbleworkgrumble*

I need to get up and shower but cba.

nonperson 25-02-2018 09:46 AM


I agree. I'm up and also need to get in the shower and then go food shopping. Argh.

1, 2, 3, go?

chinahorse 25-02-2018 09:48 AM

Seems about the only way we will manage it!

But food shops won't open till like 10.30 today remember?

Pomegranate 25-02-2018 09:52 AM


Had an incident with service user and was up until 3.30. Then got woken up again at 5. Knackered! How is everyone?

You can do it NP :-)

nonperson 25-02-2018 10:00 AM

I think they open at 10 here. But I need lots of time to get myself organised!

I also had very broken sleep and crazy messed up dreams... =/

Lots of coffee today, Pomegranate?

chinahorse 25-02-2018 10:31 AM

Oh I see NP. Hopefully you'll feel better when you get up and going :)

Oh no Emma! I hope today goes as smoothly as it can so you can go home and rest.

nonperson 25-02-2018 12:05 PM

Oh dear ****ing God.... I think the supermarket is actually worse at this time of day than at 3pm on a Sunday......

Haven’t even gone in yet... I’m sat on the car, parked miles away and staring at all the people and cars... *cry*

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 12:17 PM

You must be shattered emma!
Hope today goes ok

That sounds stressful nonperson
Could you go a bit later?

nonperson 25-02-2018 01:09 PM

Nah needed to go this morning. All done now, panic over! =D

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 01:56 PM

Well done!
Busy supermarkets are awful.

I've just been to asda and it was rammed

Aubergine 25-02-2018 02:19 PM


Cacoethes 25-02-2018 02:21 PM

Hi Aubergine!
Hows you?

nonperson 25-02-2018 02:22 PM

I was also in Asda.

Hi Aubergine!

Aubergine 25-02-2018 02:24 PM

Supermarkets are AWFUL. I applaud you both! :)

Was at kids' church. It was mad!

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 02:24 PM

Yay asda!

nonperson 25-02-2018 02:30 PM

How were your 2 year olds? Did you get enough sleep to handle them?

Aubergine 25-02-2018 02:31 PM

They were good fun, but very liveley! I didn't sleep until gone 3am again, so am absolutely shattered now! May order takeaway roast dinner...

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 02:34 PM

Takeaway roast dinner sounds great!
I think you deserve it after looking after lively children when already tired!

nonperson 25-02-2018 02:39 PM

Any takeaway is great but takeaway roast dinner sounds something special indeed.

Aubergine 25-02-2018 02:39 PM

I ordered one. Lamb! :D

You guys up to much?

nonperson 25-02-2018 02:40 PM

Oooh love roast lamb.

Sitting with my friend’s dog but I’m gonna head home soon and come back later to walk her.

Eska 25-02-2018 02:45 PM

Afternoon everyone :)

I'm about to leave the country! Just sitting at the departure gate now.

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 02:49 PM

Hope you enjoy it aubergine!

What kind of dog nonperson?
I love dogs

How exciting eska!

Aubergine 25-02-2018 02:52 PM

Thanks! :D

Hey Eska! That's super exciting!

Dogs are great! Walking her later sounds like a good plan. :)

Aubergine 25-02-2018 03:44 PM

Hmm. My roast dinner still isn't here! It's been over an hour!

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 03:45 PM

That's not good!
Time to give them a call Maybe?

nonperson 25-02-2018 03:54 PM

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 03:57 PM

Thanks! :tongue2:

nonperson 25-02-2018 04:13 PM

Argh, had my afternoon all planned out and then my mum calls me for an hour!

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 04:24 PM

That's a long time to be on the phone!

nonperson 25-02-2018 05:01 PM

She spent most of it talking about Asda because she works there!

nonperson 25-02-2018 05:03 PM

And Beckie, you CAN do it.


Cacoethes 25-02-2018 05:03 PM

How can you possibly talk about asda for that long?!

Thanks :)

nonperson 25-02-2018 05:11 PM

Cacoethes 25-02-2018 05:13 PM
