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?
