With my dad, his fiancee and her daughter

Glad you've had a nice day Aubergine!
The weather has been good

Eska 27-05-2018 08:32 PM

Beckie that sounds amazing!

Aubergine I'm glad! What did you get up to?

Aubergine 27-05-2018 08:41 PM

Wow Beckie! You so deserve a holiday like that! Really pleased for you. :)

Walked, talked, sat in the sun looking at the sea. :)

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 09:00 PM

I am really looking forward to it!
Wanted a holiday for ages!
And I won't have to pay for anything :p

That sounds lovely Aubergine

How are you eska?

Aubergine 27-05-2018 09:02 PM

Free holidays are even better! :)

I'm going to go to Dawlish tomorrow! I love the sea! Going to sit on the beach and chill. :)

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 09:13 PM

Sounds lovely!

Aubergine 27-05-2018 09:21 PM


I love that P20 sun spray. Put factor 50 on this morning, spent all day in the sun and no burning! So much less fuss than reapplying stuff!

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 09:28 PM

Sounds good!
I was in the boiling sun all day yesterday with no sun cream :ermm:
Oddly enough, only one part of my right arm looks red. Nowhere else. And I was in a sleeveless dress all day!

Aubergine 27-05-2018 09:32 PM

Oops! That's pretty lucky then really! You up to much this evening?

There are lots of really drunk, loud, sweary people on my train. :(

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 09:39 PM

Yes I was lucky!
Should be more careful really
Me and nanny are waiting for the handmaidens tale to come on at 9pm.
She showed me the first episode earlier and I am hooked!

Oh no! Those kind of people are the worst.
Have you got long left on the train?

Aubergine 27-05-2018 09:53 PM

Oh I've never heard of it! What's it about?

They got off. :D I reach my stop in about 3 minutes. :)

nonperson 27-05-2018 10:02 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 10:03 PM

Hard to explain!
Im not even entirely sure what's happening.
It's very graphic and violent but very good

Have you got much planned this evening?

Hi np!

Aubergine 27-05-2018 10:21 PM

Hey Person! How goes it?

Sounds... Interesting! Glad it's good. I hope ou and your Nannie enjoy it. :)

I am home. Sat in my hammock with a glass of squash and a sandwich. :)

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 10:26 PM

Thanks :)

Sounds good.
I am forever jealous of your hammock!!

Aubergine 27-05-2018 10:29 PM

It is one of the most relaxing things ever! Though once I've sat in it I never really want to get out. :P

Cat gave me lots of love when I got in. Now he is running around the flat like a loon. Kitty witching hour, clearly.

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:08 PM

It goes ok. Just ate far too much dinner but I did some gardening today and can see some of my pond again so that's a good start. =)

I think I'd get stuck in a hammock...

My cat also had kitty witching hour... about an hour ago! He's gone out again now to hopefully wear off the energy outside.

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:10 PM

Well done on the gardening. :)

Nah, you'd be fine! Though if you did get stuck, you wouldn't be th first person. More than one of my friends has got stuck in it!

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:13 PM

Haha. =P

Does it scrunch you up into a ball? Or can you stretch out in it a bit?

chinahorse 27-05-2018 11:30 PM

I want a hammock!!

Haha kitty witching hour made me giggle. Have they settled now np and aubergine?

I'm rather sunburnt :/

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:32 PM

Mine came in again, did a few circles of the room and went out again! So no. =P

Oh noo, have you got any aftersun?

chinahorse 27-05-2018 11:39 PM

Oh dear lol!!

Nope. Have same atopic moisturiser stuff though so am slatherin that on.

What're you up to?

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:43 PM

Scrunches you up a bit if you curl up in it. You can stretch out if you sit with your feet on the floor though. :) I like to do do both depending on what I feel like. It is super nice to sit in it and rock gently with my feet in my foot spa. :D

Hey Lillie! Alec has not really settled, no! Though I think he's on the verge, as he's only half heartedly playing with the feather on the stick I'm holding in my hand!

Oh dear, Lillie! That's no good. I did wonder... I have sunburn on my back, which I couldn't reach to put P20 on this morning. The rest of me is still nice and pale though. :P

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:44 PM

Hope it helps!

I'm just watching Taskmaster on Dave. Couldn't find much on... =/

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:45 PM

Ooooh, foot spa. Fancy!

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:49 PM

It's great. I also have a shitsu foot massager, but that gets a bit hot to use in the summer. I've collected a lot of self-care/distraction stuff over the years. :P

I've never seen Taskmaster. Any good?

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:53 PM

Ah I see. =P

It's ok, I've only seen a couple of them.

chinahorse 27-05-2018 11:55 PM

Oh dear! Sunburn is no fun.

Now I'm super jealous of the hammock kitty and foot spa!

I can't watch that I get too embarrassed. Is 9t the new series?

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:58 PM

*shares hammock, kitty and foot spa* <3

How come you get embarrassed, Lillie? I don't know what it's about!

I'm watching the crime drama. Apparently I didn't even make it through the first episode before falling asleep, going by what I remember!

nonperson 28-05-2018 12:00 AM

Yeah I think it is the new series. Why do you get embarrassed?

chinahorse 28-05-2018 12:04 AM

Just that they're having to do all these odd things and how silly they must feel.

chinahorse 28-05-2018 12:04 AM

Omg just spent ages wondering what a horrible screech noise was. Turns out it's my belly :/

nonperson 28-05-2018 12:05 AM

I don't think they care about feeling silly!

Aubergine 28-05-2018 12:05 AM

Oh! Can you eat something, Lillie?

Aubergine 28-05-2018 12:17 AM


Glad it's OK. :) I'm going to try and watch some of the crime drama I fell asleep watching last night!

Aubergine 28-05-2018 12:23 AM

That's weird. Why did that just post again?!

nonperson 28-05-2018 12:26 AM

I can only see it once?

Aubergine 28-05-2018 12:30 AM

I just looked back and so can I! I'm sure I posted it before... I think I must be tired! :wow:

nonperson 28-05-2018 12:37 AM

Weird. =P

Aubergine 28-05-2018 12:39 AM

I am not!

nonperson 28-05-2018 12:41 AM

I meant the posting situation, not you!

Aubergine 28-05-2018 01:15 AM

Haha! :D

I've lost the cat. He took himself to bed, then moved to my bed, then he disappeared. He's not gone far, as there are only four rooms in my flat!

nonperson 28-05-2018 01:19 AM

He's probably just found a secret snuggly place to sleep.

Aubergine 28-05-2018 01:22 AM

He's now back on my bed! He came in, we bumbed noses, and now he's curled up by my feet. He usually prefers his bed on his mini tower these days. I must have done something right (I expect it was the dreamies...

How's your night? How come you're still awake?

nonperson 28-05-2018 01:26 AM

Or maybe he's just making sure you don't go away again.

My night's ok. Cat's still out though so no snuggles for me. I'm watching Along Came Polly on tv now... Dunno why I'm still awake, I did get up late-ish though.

Aubergine 28-05-2018 01:29 AM

He might be. :) I worry that he thinks I'm never coming back when I go out. I always come back. <3

What's Along Came Polly about?

Do you have any plans for tomorrow?

nonperson 28-05-2018 01:34 AM

It's... a rom-com, I guess, with Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston. An easy-to-watch kinda film. I've never seen it all the way through, always fall asleep by this point.

Nah, no plans as yet... Maybe more garden stuff if it's not raining.

What about you?

Aubergine 28-05-2018 01:41 AM

Oh cool. Sounds OK. Easy watching it good. :)

Garden stuff sounds like a plan if there's no rain! :) What else needs doing? Did you have a nice time with your friend and her baby today?

I'm going to go to Dawlish for the day. :) I plan to sit on the beach and paddle in the sea and just have a change of scenery in solitude. The weather is supposed to be lovely and Dawlish is beautiful. :) Cannot wait!

nonperson 28-05-2018 01:49 AM

I have indoor plant-related jobs to do too. I did have a nice time but they didn't stay too long in the end.

I think my mum likes Dawlish! I'm having a vague memory of her mentioning it a lot... Sounds like you have a nice day planned. =)

Aubergine 28-05-2018 01:53 AM

Ah it's cool that you've got indoor jobs that you can do too. :) I killed my rose plant. :( I did not water it, which is a problem... I'm glad you had a nice time even though they didn't stay long. Did your baby-proofing work?

I just want to make the most of the nice weather and my positive mood. :) And I love the sea, so seeing different sea is always good. :) I may go in up to my knees again! :D Plus, I found a straight through train, so no changing at strange stations for me. Woop!
