Oh no Aubergine, I hope you're not going to be too cold!

Thank you Beckie. How was your swim?

Do painkillers help at all, Lillie? I'm also resting and trying really hard not to sleep(very difficult because tramadol). Got to see my neighbour and my dad in a bit.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 04:34 PM

My swim was good thanks
There was a Halloween fete at the gym today so the pool was pretty empty

Indigo. 27-10-2018 04:39 PM

Ah that's great, Beckie! I love swimming in an empty pool. I used to go swimming all the time in the evening at the pool by my grandma's house, and it was always rather empty.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 04:41 PM

That sounds cool

I was once literally the only person in the pool
It was really awkward because there were still the 2 lifeguards at either end of the pool and I felt a little uncomfortable!

chinahorse 27-10-2018 04:47 PM

Haha I'd have felt awkward too beckie lol though

Painkillers sometimes help. I should take some more different ones. Right really need to go get milk.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 04:55 PM

I hope painkillers help Lillie
Hope you manage to get the milk!

chinahorse 27-10-2018 05:44 PM

Painkillers haven't helped yet :-( but I now have milk for tea which is a bonus.

What's everyone up to?

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 06:03 PM

Yay tea!

I am eating pesto pasta and watching prison break

chinahorse 27-10-2018 06:07 PM

That sounds like a very good combo!!

I'm watching say yes to the dress and ignoring the guilt of not studying. But I'm nice and snuggly in a fleece top after a very hot shower. It's so cold!

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 06:17 PM

It is!

You sound very cosy!
It is very cold

I woke up at about 3am because I was so cold
Debtated going down to refill my hot water bottle
I wish I had one of those taps that give you instant boiling water
My mum has one and it is amazing

chinahorse 27-10-2018 07:23 PM

Omg does she? I never quite believed they worked.

My front room curtains are about 10 cm too short and it's draughty.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 07:25 PM

They definitely work!
Not sure how but its awesome!

That's super annoying Lillie

chinahorse 27-10-2018 07:28 PM

Omg that's a proper adult dream present.

Yep but my windows are huge like the curtains must be 7ft tall so like hell am I changing them. Even if they aren't my taste.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 07:31 PM

I know I would LOVE one!

Wow that is a big window!
I found regular curtains a pain to put up!

Indigo. 27-10-2018 07:35 PM

I do hope painkillers help Lillie. Glad you're all snuggled up now.

That doesn't sound great Beckie. Being cold is the worst. That tap sounds amazing. Also yay for pesto pasta!

It took me maybe twenty minutes to write that. I feel blah.

chinahorse 27-10-2018 07:36 PM

Curtains are a pain if you're doing it by yourself, thankfully they came already up as they are about 2 ft off the floor. My ceiling are stupidly high.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 07:39 PM

What's up Lucy?

I wouldn't want to attempt putting curtains up at yours Lillie!!

Indigo. 27-10-2018 07:50 PM

I totally missed the curtain part of the conversation! Luckily I haven't had to put up my own curtains before, but I've inherited some lovely ones so I might have to soon.

I have a rather painful uterus. Endometriosis is debilitating.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 07:57 PM

Ah that sounds awful Lucy :(
Hope it eases up soon

Indigo. 27-10-2018 08:15 PM

Thank you Beckie X

I took painkillers and feel a bit better.

You up to much tomorrow?

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 08:25 PM

Thats good

Nope. Will just go for my swim and that's it!
How about you?

chinahorse 27-10-2018 08:32 PM

Sending hugs Lucy. Glad it's eased a bit.

You're really enjoying the swimming aren't you beckie :)

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 08:40 PM

Yes I am!
Finally found an exercise I enjoy and actually want to do!
Worked out that I do around 1200m every time I go which is most days. Its really helping everything.

Indigo. 27-10-2018 08:42 PM

Swim sounds fun though. I miss swimming so much! I can't wait to start swimming again.

Not much planned for me, I'm afraid. Might catch up with TV shows.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 08:43 PM

It is a great exercise!

Any particular tv shows?

Indigo. 27-10-2018 08:43 PM

Thank you Lillie *sends hugs also*

Glad swimming is working for you Beckie.

Aubergine 27-10-2018 08:44 PM


Indigo. 27-10-2018 08:45 PM

I haven't finished the latest season of BoJack Horseman, so planning to watch that. And Voltron, which is one of my favourite things to watch!

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 08:45 PM

Hey Aubergine!
How was the church thing?

chinahorse 27-10-2018 08:52 PM

Hope you've defrosted from the craft table thing aubergine!

Wow Beckie- super fit. How many lengths is it out of interest?

I've not heard of either show Lucy.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 08:54 PM

48 lengths according to the maths my friend did
(I suck at maths)

Indigo. 27-10-2018 08:56 PM

Hi Aubergine. How was your evening?

They're both animated Netflix originals, Lillie. Voltron is a remake of a cartoon/anime from the 80s. And BoJack cannot even be described in words. Great comedy, a bit strange.

Indigo. 27-10-2018 08:56 PM

Wow, that's impressive, Beckie!!

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 08:59 PM

I've heard good things about BoJack
Might have to give it a go!

Thanks! I just love swimming
I feel quite peaceful in the water

chinahorse 27-10-2018 09:00 PM

Woah Beckie!

Aubergine 27-10-2018 09:02 PM

Most of me has defrosted, but I'm not sure about my feet!

That is impressive, Beckie! I love swimming too. :) It is peaceful in the water.

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 09:05 PM

Oh dear Aubergine!
Got any fluffy socks?

Glad you find it helpful too :)

chinahorse 27-10-2018 09:11 PM

Snuggle them under the heated throw?

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 09:15 PM

I need to get a heated throw

Indigo. 27-10-2018 09:15 PM

Beckie, BoJack is fantastic, I can't recommend it enough!

I too feel peaceful in the water. I sometimes wish I were a mermaid!

Hope you can be completely warm soon Aubergine, feet included!

Cacoethes 27-10-2018 09:17 PM

I'll watch it once I'm done with prison break!

Being a mermaid would be really cool tbh!

Aubergine 27-10-2018 09:47 PM

I think I may get into bed with my heated underblanket.

chinahorse 27-10-2018 09:50 PM

Can you feel the wires in it aubergine?

Aubergine 27-10-2018 09:57 PM

Nope! I can't at all. :)

nonperson 27-10-2018 10:15 PM

I miss swimming. =/

Indigo. 27-10-2018 10:34 PM

I've never seen Prison Break. Is it good?

I hope you can get comfy and warm with the heated blanket Aubergine.

Last time I went for a swim was this summer, in the ocean(Swansea). The water was pretty warm and I really enjoyed it. I'd never gone for a swim in the ocean in the UK before!

zombiehunter 27-10-2018 11:58 PM

finally dragged myself away from red dead redemption 2 :-p

chinahorse 28-10-2018 07:55 AM

My body doesn't Sunday :-(

Indigo. 28-10-2018 08:32 AM

I'm sorry you're not feeling great today either Lillie :( Can you have a lie in and relax?

I was woken up at 4 am by my bed shaking like crazy. 5.6 magnitude earthquake. Scared the **** out of me.

chinahorse 28-10-2018 10:35 AM

Oh wow Lucy! Glad you're ok!!
