Nooo, I wiggled too much and he's gone now.

Got no excuse any more... so I am going to go do stuff.

Pomegranate 11-03-2018 03:33 PM

Afternoon all!

Good luck doing stuff NP

nonperson 11-03-2018 03:34 PM

Hi and bye, Pomegranate. =)


Cacoethes 11-03-2018 03:34 PM


Hi emma!
How are you?

Pomegranate 11-03-2018 03:48 PM

Just mustering the energy to get dressed. Got to get two trains to go to my mum’s for Mother’s Day later. Dreading it.

How are you?

Aubergine 11-03-2018 03:50 PM

I feel you, Emma. I'm waiting for train one of three and I do. not. want. I hope your journey goes OK. *hug*

Pomegranate 11-03-2018 03:53 PM

Thanks *hugs* to you too.

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 03:55 PM

Hugs for both of you <3

Aubergine 11-03-2018 04:09 PM

Thank you. <3

I am also sad to leave my friends. My friend who dropped me at the station said that I'm welcome up any time, even next weekend if I wanted, and that I'm such an easy guest and he loves how easy it is to have a conversation with me, even though we haven't seen each other for 18 months. I have laughed so much. I see them again at the end of July, so not too long. :)

Went to a camping shop and bought a new anywhere chair and a sleeping bag. Because you can't go to a tent shop and not buy something. :P

How're you, Beckie?

How's the getting dressed thing coming along, Emma?

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 04:13 PM

Sounds like you had a lovely time :)

Camping shops are fun!

I'm ok thanks

Aubergine 11-03-2018 04:34 PM

Yeah, I did :) I have been feeling so anxious, but feel better after a break. Will feel even more refreshed once I finish this train journey! On this current train for about an hour though, so it's all good for the moment. Just have to get off at the right station because the station after is a London station and that is Not Cool.

Up to much?

Pomegranate 11-03-2018 04:36 PM

Don’t fall asleep then Aubergine :-p

Getting dressed is not happening lol still sat on the sofa watching Big Bang theory.

Aubergine 11-03-2018 04:41 PM

Haha! I've got my music on full blast through my headphones (I had to buy more while I was away as I managed to destroy the other ones by trapping them under a door. >.<) Hoping that that will keep me awake. To be honest, I think the fear of ending up in London will keep me awake. That's even more scary than the possibility of ending up in Aberdeen which could have happened on the way up here. :P

*sends encouragement and gentle prods* Do you need to see your Mum today? It's OK not to if it's too much. :)

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 04:42 PM

I'm glad you feel better after the break Aubergine

Oh dear Emma!
When do you have to leave?

I'm not up to much.
Just trying to distract distract distract!!

Aubergine 11-03-2018 04:46 PM

What can I do to distract you, Beckie? Can I dance for you? I used to do tap dancing... Or I could play you the piano? Or I could describe what I'm seeing out of the window. Or I could play long-distance I spy with you? Or I could sing you a song? :P

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 04:52 PM

How about singing a song while playing the piano and tap dancing at the same time? :p

Pomegranate 11-03-2018 05:01 PM

Got dressed. Need to leave in about half an hour to walk to the station. Thanks Aubergine but I really need to go otherwise she’ll get all upset and my sister will get snarky.

What are you doing to distract Beckie?

Aubergine 11-03-2018 05:05 PM

Yeah sure. I'll get on it! I could tap dance ON the piano, making the right tune to sing along to? What song would you like? :D

Ah, I see. Well done for getting dressed. :) Half an hour to prepare yourself. What will help you to manage while you're waiting to leave?

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 05:07 PM

Well done for getting dressed
I hope it goes ok
Family can be a pain sometimes!

The usual.
Watching TV, playing games on my phone, looking at funny pictures on 9gag. It's half working. Lolz.

Tap dancing on the piano would be cool!
Has to be Mr Brightside

Aubergine 11-03-2018 05:11 PM

Oh how I wish I was that talented! :P

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 05:13 PM

Haha! You'll have to practice :p

Aubergine 11-03-2018 05:15 PM

I will! :D Though the last time I wore tap shoes was about 20 years ago and I was never that good at it then. :D There's video evidence of me dancing in a show at our local theatre. It's painful to watch. :P

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 05:18 PM

Tap dancing is hard!
I used to go to a summer drama school when I was a kid and we did various types of dancing.
I love dancing but I am crap at it :p

Aubergine 11-03-2018 05:34 PM

I found tap easier than modern, which I also did! Never again. :P I didn't even really enjoy it, but dancing is what you do when you're 10, right?!

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 05:39 PM

That's always been my experience!
Everyone did some sort of dance.
Jasmine does ballet at the moment

nonperson 11-03-2018 05:43 PM

I didn't do any kind of dance!

Was forced to do some ballet as part of gymnastics training though...

Aubergine 11-03-2018 05:44 PM

Aww. :) Does she enjoy it?

Aubergine 11-03-2018 05:44 PM

Ooo gymnastics was something else that people did!

nonperson 11-03-2018 05:45 PM

I did it right up until I was 18 at a proper club with competitions and everything.

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 05:58 PM

She loves it! She also does gymnastics. Her school has said she should join a proper club when she turns 7 because she's so good.
Jasmine is very athletic, unlike literally everyone else in the family :p

That sounds cool nonperson!

Aubergine 11-03-2018 06:02 PM

Oh wow. That's really cool! I bet you were good. :)

Train issues. It could be a late night. :(

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 06:04 PM

Oh no aubergine :(
What's up with the trains?

Aubergine 11-03-2018 06:21 PM

Protesters on the tracks, which I did not read about until I was catching up on the news on my way! Which means assistance will be affected and raaaar.

zombiehunter 11-03-2018 06:43 PM

what the **** were they protesting about??

Pomegranate 11-03-2018 06:44 PM

Whaaaaat? I’m sorry Aubergine. That sucks

Nawwww I bet she looks so cute doing her gymnastics Beckie. You must be proud.

My train was cancelled so wasn’t going to get there on time. Arranged to meet my mum later in the week instead. Relieved tbh. Back home curled up on the sofa.

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 06:50 PM

That sucks aubergine.
I hope you manage to get home ok
The protest is about Turkey's war crimes. It just came up on the news thing on my phone.

She does look cute. I am very proud of her!

Im glad you got to go back home Emma!

zombiehunter 11-03-2018 06:52 PM

oh I jut saw on the news about the protests, they were protesting against turkey for having a go at the kurds when they should be fighting ISIS.

Aubergine 11-03-2018 06:54 PM

Kurdish people in Syria and Turkey.

Thanks. It's OK. I've been too scared to phone passenger assistance to see if they can rearrange for the later train (because of the delay), so have phoned Mum and she's going to talk to me on the phone while I find a train person and ask them for clarification on the platform and time of the next train etc. My Uncle is going to pick my up from my home station so I don't have to walk home late at night. Looking at the Network rail site, it could have been worse had I been travelling earlier in the day, so it's not as bad as it could have been. Just got to keep my **** together. :P

Curled up on the sofa sounds nice, Emma. :)

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 06:59 PM

Sounds like you've got a good plan in place aubergine
Sending good vibes!

Aubergine 11-03-2018 07:04 PM

Thank you, Beckie. Good vibes always welcome!

The train got busy and I no longer have two seats to myself. I was being pretty greedy, mind. :P

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 07:08 PM

Hate it when that happens!

Aubergine 11-03-2018 07:19 PM

Hehe next stop soon! If I can get my act together and change reaaaaaaally quickly I could get on a train that'll get me home before 9pm...

nonperson 11-03-2018 07:31 PM

Eek, that's a late home time, Aubergine.

Also sending good vibes - you can do it!

Hello everyone.

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 07:36 PM

You can do it Aubergine!!

Hi nonperson
How are you?

nonperson 11-03-2018 07:39 PM

Hi Beckie. I'm still unshowered and have been quite unproductive... Got sidetracked with looking up stuff on my old laptop.

But I did do some laundry... just need to go hang it up now!

How're you?

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 07:42 PM

Its so easy to get side tracked!
At least you got some laundry done though

Im ok. Tired for some reason!

nonperson 11-03-2018 07:44 PM

I'm also tired, just did a big fat yawn.

Aubergine 11-03-2018 07:47 PM

Oh, tired people. Early night both? I'm hoping for one!

I made it. Train travelling pro. (We'll ignore the bit where I cried down the phone to my mother while finding the correct platform. :P )

Cacoethes 11-03-2018 07:51 PM

Definitely will be having an early night.
Got to get up for college tomorrow morning. Ugh!

Well done Aubergine! :-D
