Luckily nothing bad happened! But it was really scary.

chinahorse 28-10-2018 11:18 AM

Are they frequent?

CB has mentioned them before.

one_step_closer 28-10-2018 12:11 PM

Scary stuff Lucy. I was scared enough seeing frost this morning!

Indigo. 28-10-2018 12:31 PM

Earthquakes are fairly frequent, yeah, but not this high on the scale. I've felt quite a few that had magnitudes between 3 and 4.5. I could actually hear everything move while the building was shaking last night :/ Amazingly nothing broke though!

Frost must mean winter is coming, Lindsay!

How is everyone today?

not_so_insig 28-10-2018 12:40 PM

No earthquakes in this part of Wales.

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 01:26 PM

Hey guys

chinahorse 28-10-2018 01:27 PM

Ah right. Scary stuff that it was higher on the scale.

Eek cold lindsay! Mind it's not warm here and I'm in the south on the coast.

I'm extrenely fatigued. Need to shower do my hair and go to town though.

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 01:47 PM

I kept waking up due to the cold!

Thats a pain Lillie
Hope you don't have to be out for too long

chinahorse 28-10-2018 03:23 PM

Put the heating on!

Nope. I've just 2 more things to get then I'm off home.

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 03:27 PM

I think the heating will have to go on when I get back from my swim later
I'm ok with my hot water bottle and blanket atm!
Should be ok because I always shower at the gym so at least I'm not using the gas on showers!

That's good!

Eska 28-10-2018 04:31 PM

Hi people

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 04:37 PM

Hi eska
How are you?

chinahorse 28-10-2018 04:44 PM

My gas and electric bill is going to be huge I think :/ I pay 40 which the decreased to 20 over the summer and I didn't even use that so they refunded me 8 quid but then put my bill up to 38.

I'm home and snuggled on the sofa. May have to dig out my own hot water bottle and then nap.

Hey eska :)

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 04:48 PM

Oh dear :/
Im on a pre payment meter so no idea how much i spend

Sounds like a good plan Lillie!

chinahorse 28-10-2018 05:03 PM

Is that the one you have to top up like a pay as you go phone?

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 05:10 PM

Its annoying at times but I prefer it
Because I know I'll forget to pay gas/electric bill like I did in my last place and ran up a debt

Aubergine 28-10-2018 05:54 PM


I also have prepayment meters. :) I prefer them, especially now that I have smart meters and can top up online. :)

How are you all? I went to see my friend. HAve just got in and then church at 7pm.

It's so cold. I spend about 1.15 a day on electricity, according to my online usage thing. I haven't put the heating on yet though. Might have to soon. My heating is just SO EXPENSIVE. Stupid electric heaters.

Aubergine 28-10-2018 06:01 PM

ZOMBIE! :D :D How are you?

zombiehunter 28-10-2018 06:06 PM

all good here thanks :-D

mostly been playing red dead redemption 2 this weekend :-D

how are you??

Aubergine 28-10-2018 06:34 PM

I have never heard of that! I hoe you've been enjoying it. :D

I'm alright. Just having a clean up of my flat. Front room is done, kitchen is almost done, then for the bathroom. :) Will tackle the bedroom tomorrow, I think... :/

zombiehunter 28-10-2018 06:41 PM

do you live under a rock or something?? :-p

it's like the biggest game of the year, after I did everything I needed to do on Friday I picked up my game and by the time I had it installed and stuff it wa around 4 pm and I didn't stop playing til around 3am yesterday morning :-p

Aubergine 28-10-2018 06:49 PM

I think I must. :P

I see! Well, that sounds like a fabulous few hours! :D Does it take a long time to complete?

zombiehunter 28-10-2018 06:50 PM

I haven't completed it yet :-p

despite all the hours I've put into it I've barely scratched the surface

chinahorse 28-10-2018 06:53 PM

Wow zombie that's a heck of a long time!

Aubergine, hope you enjoy church. Electric heating is so expensive!!

Just got my hot water bottle out and it's glorious. Conversely anyone know where I can get 2 ice packs for my knees?

Aubergine 28-10-2018 06:59 PM

Hmm. I'd say Wilkinsons! You'd pick some up in boots or something, but they'd be expensive. Alternatively, Amazon sell EVERYTHING!

chinahorse 28-10-2018 07:01 PM

I looked in Wilkinsons no joy.

May have to amazon it but not this month. Shall have to keep defrosting the peas lol.

Aubergine 28-10-2018 07:10 PM

Oh dear! Your poor knees. :(

My front room is now tidy. And my kitchen. Any my bathroom. And there's a load of laundry on (just hope my work clothes dry by tomorrow...)

chinahorse 28-10-2018 07:12 PM

My knees are ridiculous.

There's always the age old hair dryer if they aren't dry by morning.

nonperson 28-10-2018 07:17 PM

The Aristocats is on Channel 4! =D

chinahorse 28-10-2018 07:18 PM

It's a good film isn't it? I have it on dvd.

Aubergine 28-10-2018 07:19 PM

That is true!

Hey Person! :)

It's cold.

chinahorse 28-10-2018 07:20 PM

Sandwhich yourself between the heated underblanket and throw?

nonperson 28-10-2018 07:23 PM

To make a roasted Aubergine? =P

It's one of my fav films. =D

Aubergine 28-10-2018 07:26 PM

Hehe! Doing that is rather delightful! :D

I'm leaving for church in about 15 minutes though, so don't want to get too comfy!

I managed to hurt my hand whilst taking down a gazebo last night. :wow:

Aubergine 28-10-2018 07:26 PM

Roasted aubergine?! :'(

nonperson 28-10-2018 07:28 PM

In a non-edible way. =)

Oh no, hope you didn't hurt it too badly?

Aubergine 28-10-2018 07:29 PM

Hehe. That's OK then! :D

No, it's not too badly hurt. Just a bit sore and I keep catching the hurt bit. :(

Really should get moving...

nonperson 28-10-2018 07:30 PM

Rubbish. =/ And yes you should.

I also need to get moving and sort some dinner.

chinahorse 28-10-2018 07:37 PM

I feel you aubergine, make sure to look after it.

I burnt my palm and finger on a hot oven tray the other week which split open and are now deep horrible wounds over the joints. :-( And because of work they won't heal.

Oops forgot dinners a thing. Should do that too.

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 07:41 PM

Hey guys
Back from my swim

Sounds like you guys have been in the wars!

nonperson 28-10-2018 07:45 PM

Your swimming pool opens late on a Sunday o.o

Lillie - ouch!

Aubergine 28-10-2018 07:52 PM

Made it to church. Cannot be bothered to talk to anyone. I have such a community spirit. Hah.

That sounds horrible, Lilly. :(

How was the swim, Beckie?

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 07:55 PM

Its open until 9pm on sundays!
Swim was good thanks
Was a tad busy though!

My heating has been turned on!

Hope church goes ok Aubergine

nonperson 28-10-2018 08:18 PM

You can join in with community spirit by just being in the presence of people.

I assume everything closes early on a Sunday. Surprised it was busy though!

Yay for heating. =P

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 08:23 PM

Everything in this town closes at 4pm except the gym and the co op!
The co op is open until 11pm!!

nonperson 28-10-2018 08:38 PM

I think all Co Ops do that. Dunno how they get round the trading hours thingy.

Buttons. 28-10-2018 08:41 PM

Mostly there's some shop or other still open in my town but I am in no mood to go shopping, I'm staying safely on my sofa with the heating on and trying to persuade the dog that me denying her my supernoodles is not the greatest tragedy to hit canine kind :P

Cacoethes 28-10-2018 08:45 PM

Yeah co ops are always open!
There was also a pizza place I very hurriedly walked past!

Why are you so cruel Buttons! Poor doggo wants super noodles!

nonperson 28-10-2018 08:52 PM

I'm googling heated items to buy... throws and blankets and mattress toppers. =o
