Easter eggs are totally essential!

one_step_closer 30-01-2021 03:20 PM

I have an Easter egg coming in my Asda delivery this evening.

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 03:24 PM

Easter eggs for all!

nonperson 30-01-2021 03:30 PM

I'll have to get one tonight so as not to feel left out. =P

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 03:40 PM

Yes you will np!

tamobhuuta 30-01-2021 07:44 PM

I Want An Easter Egg.

Cacoethes 30-01-2021 07:57 PM

You should get one tamo!

one_step_closer 31-01-2021 12:32 PM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 12:49 PM

Morning lindsay
I'm ok
Was woken up by carers at 9:30 but went back to bed!

How are you?

nonperson 31-01-2021 01:23 PM

Afternoon people.

I somehow was organised enough this morning to get to Tesco for 10 minutes past opening. It wasn't too busy. Weird driving there in the daylight though.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 01:29 PM

Afternoon np

Well done for getting to tesco!
Did you get everything you need?

nonperson 31-01-2021 01:33 PM

Yup, didn't need a lot so it was quick.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 01:37 PM

Good good!

Have you got much planned for the rest of the day?

nonperson 31-01-2021 01:53 PM

Nope, just laundry and trying to avoid thinking about going back to work tomorrow. =(

What about you?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 01:57 PM

Aww no, work :(

I really have to at least look at the OU stuff!
Course officially starts today and I have done no reading at all.
It's a module I really don't want to do but have to. Statistics. Ugh

nonperson 31-01-2021 02:03 PM

Yeah, work. x.x

Erf, I remember doing statistics for my degree! It's definitely not the most exciting of modules.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 02:16 PM

It really isn't.
And I hate anything vaguely maths-like.

nonperson 31-01-2021 02:34 PM

I used to find maths quite methodical and easy. I think now it would give me a complete mental and physical meltdown... =/

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 02:39 PM

That's what it does to me!
I hate maths with a passion!
I can do it if I try.
My mum said it's because I found everything else really easy at school (I did) but maths I couldn't do straight away so it sent me into a panic!

nonperson 31-01-2021 03:01 PM

Well you've got time to get your head round it now so hopefully that will help.

Are you just doing the one module?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 03:03 PM

Yes that is true!

Yes I am because this is the only module I need to complete my first year.
I usually do 2 modules.

nonperson 31-01-2021 03:24 PM

That's probably a good thing, like being able to focus on just one difficult module and get it out of the way without the stress of a second one too.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 03:33 PM

That's a very good point!

one_step_closer 31-01-2021 04:13 PM

I'm glad you're getting back into your course Beckie. Statistics is a lovely way to start back!

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 04:19 PM

Thanks lindsay :)
Haha, yes indeed...

How are you today?

one_step_closer 31-01-2021 05:12 PM

Low and hopeless.

How's your day going?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 05:16 PM

I wish there was something I could do to help. I really do <3

Not bad thanks. Still haven't got any studying done but I've made great progress on pokemon platinum :p

nonperson 31-01-2021 05:53 PM

Is it too early for dinner discussion?

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 05:55 PM


nonperson 31-01-2021 05:57 PM

Good! What's on everyone's plates tonight then?

not_so_insig 31-01-2021 06:08 PM

I had chilli and rice for my tea

nonperson 31-01-2021 06:10 PM

I totally approve of that meal, Dawn. =)

My tv just turned itself on... o.O

not_so_insig 31-01-2021 06:12 PM

Spooky nonperson!

nonperson 31-01-2021 06:14 PM

Actually I think it was in a sort of standby mode and just re-woke itself, which isn't so spooky after all. Freaked me out though!

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 06:17 PM

That's what my old TV did when it was breaking!
Very creepy at 3am!

nonperson 31-01-2021 06:20 PM

Eek, yes I can imagine!

Luckily this was Nowtv so it just started up with the home screen thing. It's gone a bit wonky with its screensaver settings lately, so just goes black if I don't select something else to watch. That's why I assumed it was off.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 06:28 PM

Ah ok!
That makes sense

I don't know what to have for dinner
I don't have much in because I was too excited about easter eggs and shreddies to remember to get most other things!

nonperson 31-01-2021 06:30 PM

Haha. I dunno, I think you just listed two very good ingredients for dinner right there. =P

I also don't know what to have.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 06:33 PM

Haha! True!

Did you get nice things in your shop today?

My nanny has just called to tell me she's randomly deposited £200 in my account to cheer me up.
Very grateful and it has indeed cheered me up!

nonperson 31-01-2021 06:38 PM

Oh that's lovely of her! Going to treat yourself?

My shop wasn't that nice. Mostly just sandwich things and cereal bars for work.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 06:43 PM

Yes I think so!

Ah ok. That's disappointing!

nonperson 31-01-2021 06:48 PM

Did you treat yourself to a dress before with her money?

I was sent plenty of nice food things during the week though.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 07:03 PM


Oh that's good.

nonperson 31-01-2021 07:06 PM

I wasn't sure I was remembering that right so that's cool. =)

I've probably got enough cake and biscuits and cheese to last me several months.

Although realistically it'll only be a week or two.

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 07:23 PM

Cake, biscuits and cheese sounds like a good dinner!
In that order :p

nonperson 31-01-2021 07:31 PM

I already had cake today, for breakfast. >.>

I'm trying not to overdo the cheese because I think it actually gave me some pretty weird sort of semi-conscious dreams the other night so I'm a little freaked out by that still. o.o

Maybe I will crack out the biscuits though!

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 07:36 PM

Ah ok!
Cake for breakfast is great tbh

They do say cheese gives you nightmares!

nonperson 31-01-2021 07:42 PM

Yeah I've had some pretty weird dreams after eating cheese, maybe just a coincidence because that happens without cheese. This was different though. Possibly the combination of cheese and alcohol but it was definitely weird. =P

Cacoethes 31-01-2021 08:02 PM

I have weird dreams sometimes!
But not cheese related.
I'm going to need to buy cheese tomorrow now though because talking about it has made me want it :p

nonperson 31-01-2021 08:08 PM

The dreams the other night weren't specifically about cheese, but I just remember feeling this intense fear about eating it. Like world ending doom sort of feelings.

Ooh what kind?
