I have discovered that the Demon Headmaster complete series is coming out on dvd! But only in Australia for some reason. I hate it when overseas gets decent dvds of British programmes but it either doesn't come out in the UK or we get a crappy release (Keeping up appearances is one example ).

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 04:02 PM

Ahhh I used to love that show!

Hi Aubergine- how are you today?

not_so_insig 28-04-2018 04:19 PM

Fortunately I have a multi region dvd player so once it comes out I am buying it!

Aubergine 28-04-2018 04:28 PM

Hey Emma and Dawn. How're you doing?

I'm ok. Think the increased stomach meds have kicked in, as am in significantly less pain today. Saw a friend for a couple of hours, which was lovely, and now I'm cuddling the cat and messaging a couple of friends.. Getting him is the best decision I've made in a ling time. Even CC said she thinks he's the best thing that's ever happened to me.

not_so_insig 28-04-2018 04:32 PM

I am not so good.

Aubergine 28-04-2018 04:38 PM

Ah, I'm sorry dawn.

Sorting out pet insurance. Got two months free. :)

My boy. :)

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 05:04 PM


Awwww he’s so cute! I’ve just taken Leo’s cone of shame off and he’s very confused!

Aubergine 28-04-2018 05:10 PM

Hehe! How did he cope with the cone of shame? Is he all healed now?

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 05:13 PM

He was very grumpy for a good few hours. I don’t think he’s all healed but he’s worked out how to lick despite the cone so there wasn’t much point keeping it on.

What are you upto for the rest of the day?

Aubergine 28-04-2018 05:18 PM

Hehe. Clever cat! (Or silly cat?!)

I'm currently lying with the cat and half studying about pain. It's interesting. I plan on going for a walk round the park at about 6pm, then I'm going to cook some dinner. Stir fry, I think.

How about you?

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 05:24 PM

Think he’s a bit of both!

That sounds nice. Love a good stir fry.

I’ve done very little today. Just watching Charmed and playing with the cat.

chinahorse 28-04-2018 05:33 PM

Jealous of you guys and your kitty cats!

I had a full head of highlights and a cut and blow dry. They also managed to give my coat to someone else so I had to walk home without one :(

Aubergine 28-04-2018 05:35 PM


Me too. Asda do frozen chicken strips, frozen sliced peppers, frozen diced onions etc that you can cook from frozen. I live on that and microwave stuff. Really could do with defrosting my freezer though.

Must empty the litter tray on my way out to the park.

Sometimes a quiet, people-free day is good. How're you feeling?

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 05:35 PM

What?? I hope they gave you a discount on your hair after that!

Aubergine 28-04-2018 05:36 PM

Hey Lillie! That sounds lovely. Will we get to see a picture? Only if you're comfortable, mind. Oh, that's annoying of the hair salon to give your coat to someone else! Did they compensate you?!

chinahorse 28-04-2018 05:37 PM

Nope they did not. I'll give them until tomorrow to track it down and then I'll be having words.

Aubergine 28-04-2018 05:38 PM

That's awful of them. I would complain!

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 05:41 PM

Not too bad thanks. Sinus pain and muscle pain is bad today. Leo is being super loving the last couple of days though.

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 05:42 PM

I’d definitely complain too!

Aubergine 28-04-2018 05:43 PM

Pain is horrible. :( Have a hug. Aww, he sounds lovely. What colour is he? I'm not sure that I've ever seen a picture. Alec the cat has woken up and is currently killing his favourite mouse...

chinahorse 28-04-2018 05:44 PM

I'm more annoyed that I had to walk home cold and I can't afford to replace an expensive jacket.

Sorry you're in pain emma love. Be gentle with yourself.

Aubergine 28-04-2018 05:46 PM

I hope they find it, Lillie. It really is awful of them to give it to the wrong person. Do you think you would feel up to asking them to pay for a new one, should it not be retrievable?

chinahorse 28-04-2018 05:48 PM

I definitely will but even if they give me 50 quid or whatever I got it in the sale over a year ago and then it's finding one I like etc. Ruined a nice day that has. And I'm really sore from sitting in their chair :/

Aubergine 28-04-2018 05:52 PM

:( You have a hug too. Hair salon chairs are not the comfiest, especially if you've got medical issues. Can you rest up this evening? Perhaps pamper yourself a bit?

chinahorse 28-04-2018 05:55 PM

Probably will just veg out in front of the tv. Need to put the sheets back on as well.

Did you say you were going out aubergine?

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 05:58 PM

I’ll try and upload one but need to work out how to resize first. He’s black and white :-)

That sucks Lillie :-(, are you happy with your hair at least?

Aubergine 28-04-2018 06:04 PM

Black and white cats are cute. :) There was a black and whitd cat in Alec's litter, but she'd already been reserved and was the first to go! :)

Thanks Lillie! I am going out! Now! Right now! Brave the outside world and get some fresh air and gentle exercise. :)

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 06:06 PM

He’s very cute- but I’m biased!

Enjoy your walk.

Hello from me and Crookshanks (pictured cat).

Hope you're all having an ok evening.

I'm determined to reply to things on here, just feel tired even though I only got up at about 9.10am which is about an hour earlier than usual. I've got a bit of a cold so my throat is sore and my ears are blocked a little which is making my tinnitus worse.

Aubergine 28-04-2018 06:43 PM

I walked for half an hour, took some pictures and now I'm lying on the grass. It's a beautiful evening. :) it's nice to be out. I think I finally feel a bit normal. What a ride that was! :)

Aubergine 28-04-2018 06:44 PM

Oh Lindsay. Gorgeous cat! Be gentle with yourself.

Pomegranate 28-04-2018 06:48 PM

Lovely cat.

Sounds nice Aubergine.

Aubergine 28-04-2018 06:49 PM

It is nice!

How're things your end?

one_step_closer 28-04-2018 06:52 PM

Can we join you Aubergine?

Cacoethes 28-04-2018 07:02 PM

Hey guys
I'm home now
It was the 'pit run' today which is a tradition there apparently. Lots of stalls and beer tent and live music.
Jasmine was going to join the kids run but she fell over and didn't want to do it anymore which was a shame.
We had fun anyway!

Aubergine 28-04-2018 07:16 PM

Of course you can, Lindsay! It'd be lovely to have your company!

Hey Beckie! Sounds great!

Cacoethes 28-04-2018 07:33 PM

What are you all up to this evening?

zombiehunter 28-04-2018 07:37 PM

i just had steak fajitas and now I'm finishing off a nice cold beer *burp*

what dafuq are you up to coco??

Cacoethes 28-04-2018 07:45 PM

Sounds good!

I just made a chicken and sausage jumbalya.
It was tasty!
Casualty is on tonight! :)

zombiehunter 28-04-2018 07:46 PM

watching casualty in the hospital? isn't that like watching speed on a bus??

not_so_insig 28-04-2018 07:48 PM

It's on next week too Beckie. We are due a break though because it's nearly May and the Eurovision Song Contest is in may.

not_so_insig 28-04-2018 07:51 PM

According to Google the Eurovision Song Contest is a fortnight today.

not_so_insig 28-04-2018 07:53 PM

Last time I was IP and in during a weekend we watched casualty zombie. Kinda required viewing in hospital.

Cacoethes 28-04-2018 07:58 PM

I'm out of the hospital now!
Well, on leave.

I really do not like the Eurovision song contest!

Aubergine 28-04-2018 07:59 PM

I do not like hospital programmes. They make me feel all squirmy. Wouldn't believe that I work in one. :wow:

I took these in the park:

Cacoethes 28-04-2018 08:02 PM

Lovely photos aubergine!
Wish I had a nice park near me

zombiehunter 28-04-2018 08:05 PM

I have a park near me, its not nice as you have to be careful of dogs jobbies and junkie needles but it does have a wee petting zoo and there is a pretty cool view of the city at the top of the park.

Aubergine 28-04-2018 08:19 PM

Parks are lovely. I'm 5 minutes from the park and 7 minutes from the sea. :) I feel really, really lucky to live where I do. :) *sends park to Beckie*

That view sounds good, Zombie!

zombiehunter 28-04-2018 08:22 PM

only one thing wrong with it though, it's a view of Glasgow :-p
