CSI New York. Not my favourite but still worth a gander. I really should sleep but I’m fighting it because I need some more down time before sleep, I think. Glad he’s rebuilding his life. Sounds like a pretty bad relapse. It’s good he can afford not to work as well :-)

Aubergine 11-02-2018 11:08 PM

Down time before sleep is good. I do hope that you feel able to go to sleep soon though. Rest is important. :) I'm glad you can stay in your PJs tomorrow. Having a quiet day after such a busy weekend is a good idea!


I really, really need to tidy. Again. :wow: Will do it tomorrow when I get home, I think.

Pomegranate 11-02-2018 11:30 PM

Me too lol. Can’t you do it another day though? You deserve to rest after your busy weekend and day of training!

Aubergine 11-02-2018 11:34 PM

Haha! Oh dear. Why do things get in a mess so quickly?! I guess I could do it Tuesday morning or something. :)

chinahorse 11-02-2018 11:46 PM

I fell asleep on the sofa :/

Sorry guys. I'm sucky at conversation rn.

Aubergine 11-02-2018 11:49 PM

It's OK to have a sofa snooze, Lillie. Could you get into bed now?


No need to apologise. I think most of us can relate to that. :)

chinahorse 11-02-2018 11:51 PM

Yep I'm in bed :) and have hung up washing and tidied a bit and put another load on to start tomorrow.

It's gone cold again hasn't it?

Aubergine 11-02-2018 11:56 PM

Well done. :) You sound very organised! Thank you for mentioning washing - mine is still in the machine, completely forgotten about! It's work uniform too, which I really need for tomorrow. Oops!


It has gone cold again. I don't know how the northerners are coping!

chinahorse 12-02-2018 12:02 AM

Eek hang it up and put the heating on for a bit. It'll soon be dry.

Me neither. Mind we got hail so big and heavy today that people literally ran for cover.

Aubergine 12-02-2018 12:11 AM

I've done just that! Thankfully it's really light material so it should dry in time. If not, it won't be the first time I've gone to work in wet uniform. :wow:


Oh wow! Hail is nasty. Best to be inside when that happens - can understand people running for cover! It's been dry all day here and very sunny. Just cold! :)


Sleep soon, Lillie? <3

Buttons. 12-02-2018 08:19 AM

Morning all :)

Aubergine 12-02-2018 08:25 AM

Morning Buttons. How's it going?

Buttons. 12-02-2018 08:36 AM

Okay thanks, bit anxious as there's a few hard things this week but am handling it better than I thought I would so win. Plus weather has brightened up so so long as wrap up warm should be able to take the dog on a decent walk. How are you?

Aubergine 12-02-2018 08:40 AM

I hope the hard things go ok. :) Well done for handling them! Cool that you can take the dog for a decent walk! It's bright and cold here too. My favourite weather. :)


I'm alright thanks. Tired! :)

chinahorse 12-02-2018 08:48 AM

Hope they go ok buttons.

Did your work uniform dry aubergine?

It's bright and cold here too.

Wish I'd have called in sick to work last night. It's too late now but I'm in so much pain :/ Oh well.

Aubergine 12-02-2018 08:59 AM

Hey Lillie. I'm sorry that you're in so much pain. How long is your shift today?


My tops are dry, but not my trousers. I was messaging a friend on her way to work and when I told her that I was going to be going to work in wet uniform again, she said "classic Aubergine." How rude of her!

chinahorse 12-02-2018 09:09 AM

Could you not have ironed or hairdryer them dry? I do that more often than I care to admit with work aprons.

Its only a 5 hours shift so I shouldn't moan.

Buttons. 12-02-2018 09:10 AM

Thanks both :) I like bright and cold weather too.

That sucks about the wet trousers-would a hair dryer help a bit if you have time? I've resorted to that in the past with work uniforms :P

Sorry you're in so much pain Lillie *cuddles gently*

Aubergine 12-02-2018 09:10 AM

I don't own an iron, but I could hairdryer them - good idea! :)


5 hours is a long time when you're in pain. I hope it goes quickly for you.

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 11:15 AM

Hey guys!

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 02:28 PM

Afternoon all! Beckie I took inspiration from you fhe other day and only just got out of bed :-p

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 02:34 PM

Haha!
Hey Emma!

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 02:41 PM

Heeeeeeeeeey. How’s it hanging? What you upto?

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 02:42 PM

Not much.
Watching pirates of the Caribbean.
Trying to build up the motivation to open the laptop!

You?

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 02:45 PM

Just seen about your dad. Are you ok?
Watching posh pawn and doing **** all lol. Need to do some tidying!

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 02:48 PM

I'm ok thanks.
Not much I can do about it.
Hopefully he'll be able to be brought round from the coma tomorrow and I can go up and visit soon.
His girlfriend is going to keep me updated.

We all need to do **** all sometimes!

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 02:50 PM

That’s a good way of looking at it. Make sure you update your support thread if you need to though.

Haha, thanks. My CC has left me a task list of things to do in my flat so I really should do some of it lol

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 02:55 PM

Thanks :)

I should really do some cleaning too tbh!

Is it a long list?

Eska 12-02-2018 03:10 PM

Afternoon :)

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 03:11 PM

Clean kitchen, clean bathroom, sort out bookcase and Junk I’ve hidden behind a chair (clearly not hidden well enough :-p), get hallway carpet laid. Boring stuff.

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 03:11 PM

Hey eska!
How are you?

Ah those things don't sound fun emma

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 03:11 PM

Afternoon Eska! How are you?

Eska 12-02-2018 03:19 PM

I’m doing ok, having a quiet day. I ought to go to the supermarket but I really don’t know if I can bring myself to do that...

Emma, I hope all your tasks go ok!

Beckie, how are you?

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 03:34 PM

Quiet days are good.
Don't blame you for not wanting to go to the supermarket. They're bad enough when it's not half term!

Im ok thanks

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 03:48 PM

Sorted out junk behind chair. Just doing washing. Boring.com

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 03:56 PM

Boring but I'm sure you'll feel better for doing it!!

Eska 12-02-2018 03:57 PM

Good work!

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 04:03 PM

Thanks. Now bleaching kitchen. Do feel a bit better for doing it. Have you managed to open laptop yet Beckie? If you don’t go to supermarket do you have food Eska?

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 04:07 PM

I submitted the sociology assignment.
Now to decide what to do next.
We have to do a 1-1 discussion with English tutor for our next piece of english work.
Have to discuss this topic for a solid 10 mins.
And the topic is 'what are the key factors which may adversely affect a student's mental health'
Which is quite amusing considering my current state :tongue2:

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 04:20 PM

Hahaha/ sorry, shouldn’t laugh! Interesting though.

Eska 12-02-2018 04:26 PM

I do have some food I can have, yeah.

Beckie that is kind of amusing! Does sound like a good topic for discussion though. I always find that ten minutes goes super fast in those situations.

Emma, it sounds like you’re doing great!

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 04:26 PM

It is amusing!! :p
I don't even think I have to do any research for it, I'm living it! Lolz!
Not looking forward to it though.
The assessed group discussion was bad enough, now I have to talk to someone alone for 10 whole mintues about this specific subject.
Hate things like this!
It probably will go quite quick in the end.
Hope it does anyway!

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 04:40 PM

Will probably go super quickly. Before I went Mental I used to do public speaking competitions and the time limit always went super fast!

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 04:43 PM

Public speaking competitions?!
How!?
I think I'd actually explode if I did something like that XD

Pomegranate 12-02-2018 04:48 PM

Yeah, wouldn’t like to do it now!

not_so_insig 12-02-2018 04:51 PM

Afternoon all

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 04:55 PM

I can't believe there are actual people that not only can do public speaking, but enjoy it as well!!

Eska 12-02-2018 04:56 PM

Afternoon Dawn, how are you?

Yeah, Beckie, a lot of our work was assessed through presentation/discussion and it always went faster than people had allowed for!

Cacoethes 12-02-2018 04:59 PM

Ugh! Can't be dealing with presentations and shiz!

not_so_insig 12-02-2018 05:00 PM

I am pissed off with the bin men. They were supposed to collect the bins last Thursday and despite reporting it, it still hasn't been collected. Some bastard is dumping waste in my bin too instead of their own.
