Cacoethes 18-03-2018 02:29 PM

Yep I'm all snuggled with my fluffy blanket and hot water bottle!

Awww he's so tiny!!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 02:33 PM

That sounds very cosy. :) I got back into my pyjamas! No one should be outside today!

He is tiny. :) All of the kittens are tiny, but he's the runt. :P He's special, like me. :wow:

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 02:44 PM

It is!
Yay for PJs!

Aww bless him!
So adorable!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 02:46 PM

I'm glad you're cosy. :) The snow is melting here. We're due more later, but the ground is now really wet, so I'm hopeful that it won't settle again. :)

I need to wash up...

Eska 18-03-2018 02:54 PM

It seems to have mostly stopped snowing here too.

You can do it, Aubergine!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 02:56 PM

That's good, Eska! :)

Thanks! I can! I will! ...Later... :P

Eska 18-03-2018 02:57 PM

Heh! I know that feeling...

Aubergine 18-03-2018 02:58 PM

I'm just so comfortable!

Eska 18-03-2018 03:07 PM

Me too :) It’s a good way to be! Although I just had lunch and now I am very full.

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 03:07 PM

It is hard to do stuff when you are comfy!!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 03:13 PM

Hooray for comfy people! What was for lunch, Eska? I'm still full from my English breakfast! :D

IT is hard to do stuff when you're comfy. It's also hard to do stuff when you're lazy. :P

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 03:14 PM

Also true Aubergine :p

Aubergine 18-03-2018 03:15 PM


My Mum liked her birthday present!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 03:17 PM

That's good :)

Aubergine 18-03-2018 03:23 PM


YouTube keeps advertising "grammarly" to me. Is it doing that to everyone, or is it just me who it thinks needs the help?!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 03:27 PM

How odd!
I haven't noticed it

Aubergine 18-03-2018 03:29 PM

Haha. It obviously approves of your writing skills. :P

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 03:31 PM

Thank goodness for autocorrect :p

Aubergine 18-03-2018 03:32 PM


Considering a nap...

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 03:37 PM

Naps are good!
Sunday's are rest days

Aubergine 18-03-2018 03:38 PM

Naps ARE good. I don't want it to ruin my sleep tonight though. Sleep is already hard enough at the moment! Doom. :P

Anything good on TV? Been playing your DS recently?

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 03:47 PM

Ah yes.
You don't want to ruin your sleep!

I'm watching Richie rich on tv.
I haven't actually been on my ds for a bit

What are you up to?

Aubergine 18-03-2018 03:57 PM

I've never seen Richie Rich! Is it good?

I'm studying kind of half heartedly. Should really get down to it, but my brain was fried by chemistry and having to talk to people I don't know, so it's hard to absorb things. :P

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 04:06 PM

I like it!

Peopleing is tiring!
Regular breaks are good!

Eska 18-03-2018 04:12 PM

Regular breaks are definitely good, and it’s understand that you’re a bit drained Aubergine.

I’ve never seen Richie Rich... I’m watching Bridge to Terabithia even though it will probably make me cry.

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 04:19 PM

Omg bridge to terabithia
More like bridge to tearing my heart out

I'm now watching the great escape

Aubergine 18-03-2018 04:21 PM

I've never seen that either, Eska! What's it about?

Peopling is tiring. Mum said "there you go, you don't have to speak to people for the rest of the day" when she dropped me home after breakfast today. I must have been pretty obviously peopled out. :P

Regular breaks are good! I've found that I learn better if I read the content by finding out the answers to the end of topic quizzes. If I just read it without looking for anything in particular, then nothing goes in at all. I could bjust be staring at a blank screen for all the good it does. Reading with a purpose, is what I need to do! I'm nearly at the end of the quiz for the current week's section of the topic!

Eska 18-03-2018 04:21 PM

I know right?

Eska 18-03-2018 04:26 PM

Aubergine it’s about a couple of kids who imagine a magical kingdom... I love it.

It’s great that you’ve found a way to study that works for you! That’s so crucial. It sounds like you’re making really good progress :)

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 04:28 PM

I NEVER cry at films but that one got me!

Mums know!

That's a good method aubergine

not_so_insig 18-03-2018 04:37 PM

Afternoon all. I am currently stuck inside at my parents house. This is because of the snow. At least I got a long lie in.

Eska 18-03-2018 04:39 PM

Afternoon Dawn! Being stuck sounds unfortunate, though a lie in is always good.

not_so_insig 18-03-2018 04:41 PM

Just as long as I can get home!

Eska 18-03-2018 04:49 PM

Is it far?

Aubergine 18-03-2018 04:50 PM

Oh, that sounds good! Apart from the crey-ey stuff. :)

Hey Dawn! I'm sorry that you're stuck inside! Hopefully the snow will be not so bad that you can't get home.

Thanks. :) It took me over a month to study a week's worth of material back in January/February and I was scared that it was all going to go horribly wrong, but it's been OK since I got my brain back and I'm up to date with everything now. :) I just phoned my tutor about something. First time! She was nice and now I understand. Going to stop for the day because I've got myself all caught up and got the quiz questions correct!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 04:54 PM

Thats brilliant aubergine!
You're doing so well

Aubergine 18-03-2018 05:10 PM

Thank you. <3

Not sure what to have for dinner. It's a bit early yet, but it's been a while since breakfast and I wasn't hungry at lunch time! Doom.

not_so_insig 18-03-2018 05:12 PM

It's the next county Eska but the trouble is where I live is very hilly with lots of cars parked on the side of the road as very few houses have off street parking. Unless the council have gritted it's even worse than my parents because they live on the main road. Let's hoping that everything's good

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 05:12 PM

Have you got much in Aubergine?

I'm not starving which is very unusual for me!!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 05:17 PM

I've got a bit of stuff in. Asda only came the other day. Might have an omelette, actually. Got loads of eggs! An omelette and beans!

Oh, must make a nice change not being really starving!

WIll keep my fingers crossed, Dawn. :)

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 05:20 PM

Sounds good!
I can't make omelettes.
Always ends up as scrambled eggs!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 05:24 PM

I have the opposite problem! I can make a good omelette, but I have to make scrambled eggs in the microwave or they just end up like an omelette. :wow:

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 05:25 PM

I didn't even know you could do scrambled eggs in the microwave!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 05:28 PM

You can! You have to be careful as it's easy to overcook them and make them a bit rubbery, but if you don't then they're just as tasty as eggs done in a pan. :)

You watching anything else on TV?

I'm finding acoustic covers on YouTube. Love acoustic music. :)

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 05:29 PM

Will have to try that!!

I'm watching The Great Escape

That sounds cool :)

Aubergine 18-03-2018 05:31 PM

Oh, nice. I haven't seen that either! I am not a great watcher of films. Can you tell? :P

Do you have any plans for the coming week?

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 05:37 PM

Yeah I noticed :p

Just college really
And need to arrange a driving lesson

Aubergine 18-03-2018 05:42 PM

Haha. :P

How're you feeling about college? Driving lesson sounds fun though! How's that going? I need to send off another form to the DVLA because my psych said he'd support an application for my provisional to be given back, then we discovered that I'd have to change meds and now I've got to remain normal for three months before he'll agree again. :plain:

I have work tomorrow and Tuesday afternoon. Branch group Tuesday evening. Meeting a friend on Wednesday - don't know what we're doing, but she's got the week off work so wants to have a day out somewhere. Meeting another friend for coffee on Thursday afternoon and then on Friday and at the weekend I'm going to fit some studying in, as well as having some nice quiet time. :)

Eska 18-03-2018 05:44 PM

I’m terrible at scrambling eggs in the microwave, I can do them in a pan though.

I’m not great with films either Aubergine!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 05:45 PM

Cba with college but must go really!
Yep I like my driving lessons
My nanny has given me money to book a driving test so I'll organise that too.

Ah thats a shame about your provisional.
I'm sure you'll get it soon though!

Thats a busy week!
