Eska 22-12-2019 11:12 AM

It's good thank you! I spent yesterday reading for a bit, then napped, then showered, then headed to a friend's place for Christmas dinnerr and it was so lovely to see them. I have a chilled out day today - need to do a bit of revision/studying for work tomorrow but other than that I'm free so am snuggling on the sofa and listening to a lovely audiobook.

How about you?

nonperson 22-12-2019 11:12 AM

Morning Eska.

What sort of salady stuff, Lindsay?

I'm trying not to think too much about all the things I have to do today...

Eska 22-12-2019 11:13 AM

Oh no np! What do you have on?

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 11:15 AM

Morning guys

I am not a fan of salad

Doesn't sound like too bad of a day eska!

What have you got to do np?

nonperson 22-12-2019 11:18 AM

Need to go buy food supplies for Christmas... and a few supplies for myself... It's going to be busy out. =/

And I need to do laundry and tidy the house and kitchen, feed the birds, change the bed... Working tomorrow and going away on Christmas Eve so I need to prepare and tidy now so that I don't come home to a hell hole.

Argh. x.x

chinahorse 22-12-2019 11:24 AM

Itll get busier as the day goes on so best to go and get it over with np.

Nice day eska.

Hey beckie.

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 11:26 AM

Lillie is wise

I also need to do laundry and change the bed. I have put the laundry on.
I should also tidy as well actually!

nonperson 22-12-2019 11:31 AM

Yes Lillie is very wise.

I think I'm just getting myself in a bit of a panic about going. And I need to speak to a person behind the cheese counter and that is stressing me out as well. Stupid thing to stress about but meh.

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 11:50 AM

Deep breaths!
It's not stupid, talking to people can be stressful!
You'll be ok though :)

chinahorse 22-12-2019 12:01 PM

It's not silly np. If it involves talking to someone I go without. Or change to something that's on the normal shelves.

I've put laundry away and laundry on too. Need to wash my hair as well.

nonperson 22-12-2019 12:06 PM

I usually avoid talking to people too but I've promised everyone a particularly special cheese counter cheese. >.<

I have a cat sitting on my arm. Gonna have to kick him off now. =(

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 12:12 PM

Gah I need to wash my hair too
You guys keep reminding me of stuff I need to do!!

Just get it over with np
I'm sure it won't be as bad as you think it will be

chinahorse 22-12-2019 12:21 PM

Take your headphones and hopefully itll be better than you think np.

Hair washing is such a pain. I should shower too but will do it this evening so I'm clean for seeing family tomorrow.

tamobhuuta 22-12-2019 12:27 PM

I hate hairwashing! I'm going to try and have a shower on Monday so I'm clean for Christmas.

Not doing anything today :)

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 12:27 PM

Headphones are a good idea

I'm going to wash my hair in the shower
Also seeing family tomorrow so need to not have greasy hair or my mum will moan!

chinahorse 22-12-2019 12:31 PM

It's the drying not the washing. I do it over the bath most of the time as I'm still showering keeping a leg dry.

Nothing days can be nice tamo.

Yep same beckie. But going to have to wash and dry the hair again monday night so its clean for going away. Or j could ask my friend what her bathroom situation is. Worst case scenario itll be a stand alone shower which I wont be able to use.

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 12:36 PM

Ah that's annoying

I'm going to have to shower and wash hair again on Monday night too because I'm also going away.
Out with my brothers for Christmas eve then heading up to mums Christmas morning.

chinahorse 22-12-2019 02:17 PM

Sounds like nice christmas plans beckie.

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 02:20 PM

Yep I'm looking forward to it!

What are your Christmas plans?

chinahorse 22-12-2019 02:28 PM

Seeing grandparents and brother and dads partner tomorrow. Going to a friends in liverpool with bertie on the 24th. Christmas dinner at her partners parents. Then chilling and coming back on the 27th.

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 02:33 PM

Sounds nice :)

chinahorse 22-12-2019 02:54 PM

Worried about the train up north. Has a connection and will be stupidly busy.
And I asked for a seat reservation but they didnt give me one.

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 03:03 PM

Trains are a pain at the best of times
Can you ask for travel assistance?

chinahorse 22-12-2019 03:07 PM

Would make me more anxious.

nonperson 22-12-2019 03:18 PM

Have you done the journey before?

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 03:20 PM

Thats a tricky situation

I just cut my finger on super noodles

chinahorse 22-12-2019 03:34 PM

No I haven't done it before. And I'm gunna have a suitcase and a cat.

Oh beckie. Boo.

nonperson 22-12-2019 03:37 PM

Just take it slowly. Hopefully Bertie will help you stay calm?

Ouch, Beckie. Who knew supernoodles could be so mean...

Eska 22-12-2019 03:37 PM

Beckie... how?

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 03:44 PM

That sounds difficult Lillie
I'm sure you'll manage

Ikr np!

I'm not sure eska
I think it happened when I broke the noodles up when they were dry

nonperson 22-12-2019 03:48 PM

If anything I'd have guessed it was a papercut from the packaging, not an actual noodle.

Eska 22-12-2019 03:48 PM

Ah, fair enough. How mean of them!

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 03:56 PM

I think it was the actual noodle

nonperson 22-12-2019 04:15 PM

Did you still eat them and show the noodles who's boss?

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 04:17 PM

I did!!!

nonperson 22-12-2019 04:24 PM

Oh that is a relief to hear. =)

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 04:36 PM

Wasn't going to let the noodles win

not_so_insig 22-12-2019 04:54 PM

Olympia is on the telly later!

tamobhuuta 22-12-2019 05:00 PM

I watched some show jumping yesterday, got quite into it!

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 05:09 PM

Glad to see it's staying light a bit later now

nonperson 22-12-2019 05:11 PM

It's not really noticeable yet.

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 05:14 PM

I think it is!
Maybe I'm just confusing times though??

not_so_insig 22-12-2019 05:47 PM

You are probably confused Beckie as I havent noticed any difference yet *pats head*

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 05:52 PM

Just me then!

nonperson 22-12-2019 06:04 PM

It'll only start getting lighter in the evenings by like one minute each day from now on.

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 06:05 PM

Maybe I just have super eyesight :p

Indigo. 22-12-2019 06:45 PM

*jumps into the conversation*

Hey all!

Can't wait for it to get lighter tbh I woke up late today and meaning to go to the shop now but it's completely dark. Not helping my motivation tbh.

one_step_closer 22-12-2019 06:51 PM

Hi Lucy.

I also can't wait for it to get lighter. Is the shop far from you?

Cacoethes 22-12-2019 07:01 PM


Yeah the dark doesn't help with motivation

nonperson 22-12-2019 07:06 PM

Cold and dark and rainy is a bad combination for anything. =/
