unless you are sailing and kinda essential

Cacoethes 08-02-2020 09:00 PM

Very true

nonperson 08-02-2020 09:15 PM

I just found a hot drink in the kitchen that I made myself when I got in from work earlier... Totally forgot about it. =(

Cacoethes 08-02-2020 09:51 PM

Oh no!

nonperson 08-02-2020 10:15 PM

Can't have wanted or needed it that badly, heh. =P

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 12:42 AM


I cannot sleep. Probably because anxiety about tomorrow :/

nonperson 09-02-2020 12:56 AM

What time do you need to leave tomorrow?

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 01:46 AM

The train station is a 5 min walk from mine so I don't have to get up horrendously early
I'm just fed up of being awake and would like to sleep
Zopiclone is a lie!

chinahorse 09-02-2020 07:53 AM

Morning all. Its so windy!! Properly unsettled the cat.

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 07:56 AM

Morning Lillie
It is windy!

chinahorse 09-02-2020 08:05 AM

You're up early!

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 08:09 AM

So are you!

I have to get the rail replacement bus/train/underground/train/bus

chinahorse 09-02-2020 08:10 AM

Ugh what a nightmare beckie!

I went to bed very early and have actually had like a 40 min lie in from normal getting up time.

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 08:21 AM

Yep! Just fingers crossed the trains are ok!

Wow! You get up early! Is it the cat?

chinahorse 09-02-2020 08:22 AM

Everything crossed for you!

No, I have a new job and I have to leave the house at 6.20am.

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 08:33 AM

Thank you!

Ah I see. That is an early start! :/

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 09:36 AM

Rail replacement didn't turn up.
Luckily was able to split a cab with 3 other people.
And now the train is running 20 mins late.
This is not going to be a fun day!

nonperson 09-02-2020 11:10 AM

Morning all. It is awfully windy. Stuff strewn across the garden already and the cat is seriously freaked out. The birds look like they're having fun though.

Bad start then Beckie, hope it goes ok. Stay safe!

Morning Lillie. You have to work Sundays? I didn't know dentists were open.

chinahorse 09-02-2020 11:15 AM

Ack, hope you manage to get there beckie!

No np, I do work saturdays though, just explains why I was up so early.

nonperson 09-02-2020 11:26 AM

Ohh I see! I always wake up at normal work time too. Do you know which day you get off in the week yet?

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 11:27 AM

Made it to London!
Now to battle the underground and then another train and then a bus

How are you guys coping with the wind?

nonperson 09-02-2020 11:31 AM

Yay, progress! Hopefully the underground isn't affected by the wind because that would make no sense, haha. =P

I'm just sitting here watching the world outside and listening to it squalling around the house. =/ I thought the trees might be swaying around loads but actually it's not so bad because they don't have any leaves yet.

Need to make the most of today and get myself organised with house and holiday stuff.

chinahorse 09-02-2020 11:54 AM

Yay beckie!

Well a fence panel between mine and my neighbours has fallen down.

nonperson 09-02-2020 11:58 AM

Damn, that's always a pain when that happens. Is it yours or theirs? I used to have to help my dad put all of ours back up again, heh.

chinahorse 09-02-2020 12:05 PM

Not sure, and the actual panel looks to be damaged too :/ Ill just email my letting agency and it becomes their problem.

nonperson 09-02-2020 12:07 PM

Ah bummer. It's always nice to pass a problem like that on. =)

chinahorse 09-02-2020 12:12 PM

Yep! One of the good things about renting.

Urghhhh Im out of milk, but its so windy and wet and horrid out.

nonperson 09-02-2020 12:15 PM

Oh no. Normally I'd say don't go outside today but milk is kind of essential! How far is the shop? The wind might help you get there quicker. =P

chinahorse 09-02-2020 12:16 PM

10-15 mins?

I may take off like mary poppins!

nonperson 09-02-2020 12:18 PM

Yup, but probably with less style! XD

chinahorse 09-02-2020 12:18 PM

haha! indeed!!

chinahorse 09-02-2020 12:19 PM

I want to go back to bed though. So tired.

nonperson 09-02-2020 12:21 PM

Well the wind is meant to get worse later so maybe go get milk now and then go back to bed when you get back?

chinahorse 09-02-2020 12:23 PM

Worse than this? Wow!

I have stuff to do though when I get back, should do some coursework and crochet and clean and put fresh sheets on the bed I stripped.

nonperson 09-02-2020 12:30 PM

Yeah I think it peaks this afternoon some time.

Maybe the wind and tea will wake you up a bit? Or plan in a nap too.

I also need to change my bedding, ugh.

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 01:28 PM

Surely it can't get worse?!

Changing bedding is the worst

I have finally arrived at the hotel!
The sheets are so white I feel weird sitting on the bed!

nonperson 09-02-2020 01:52 PM

Whatcha gonna do with the rest of your day, Beckie? Is there any news on whether your flight is still going ahead tomorrow? =/

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 01:59 PM

I have no idea! To both those questions actually!
I'll just turn up at the airport tomorrow and hope for the best!
I'm just watching TV atm and will go to the restaurant for dinner later

chinahorse 09-02-2020 02:02 PM

So jealous beckie. LOVE staying in a hotel.

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 02:08 PM

Me too!
And this bed is way comfier than mine at home

chinahorse 09-02-2020 02:12 PM

Hotel beds tend to be nice and squishy :-)

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 02:17 PM

They are

Anxiety fuelled stupid question here but there will be an Uber about at 4am won't there?
I mean there should be around an airport. And the airport is only 10 mins away

chinahorse 09-02-2020 02:19 PM

There should be but if not the hotel will have a list of local taxis

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 02:26 PM

That's true
I'm going to leave extra early just in case!
(And probably get there 2 hours earlier than I need to as always!)

nonperson 09-02-2020 03:22 PM

When do you find out where you're going?

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 03:55 PM

Tomorrow at 5am!

nonperson 09-02-2020 04:04 PM

Not too long to wait then. =)

Cacoethes 09-02-2020 04:23 PM

I just hope I sleep ok
Last night I got about an hour of broken sleep because of the anxiety about today's journey! Silly really!

nonperson 09-02-2020 04:25 PM

Try to get to bed early. Maybe the super comfy bed will help you relax. Is there anything else you can do to chill out a bit before sleep?

Shirayuki 09-02-2020 04:35 PM

sorry if there's an ad in the beginning ^^"
