I always have to dip my feat into the sea. I can’t wait until it’s appropriate weather to do that.

Aubergine 07-01-2018 08:35 PM

I live right by the seaside! I used to be able to cross the road from my flat and be on the beach. I'm still only a 7 minute walk away. Fish and chips by the seaside are the best!

Cacoethes 07-01-2018 08:35 PM

Got to be done!
Jasmine loves the seaside

You're lucky aubergine!
Must be cool to go to the beach whenever you want!

Sketchy 07-01-2018 08:37 PM

You are so lucky Aubergine. I love the seaside. I love looking for shells, dipping my feat in and walking along the beach. So calming.

Cacoethes 07-01-2018 08:40 PM

I think I'm going to go to bed.
Took my meds really early today so they've kicked in.
Got an early start

Night night all and sleep well!

Sketchy 07-01-2018 08:41 PM

Good night Beckie. Sleep well.

Aubergine 07-01-2018 08:42 PM

It is calming. I love the feel of sand under my feet, and I'll go barefoot in the water whatever the weather. I love watching the waves crash over the sea wall when it's stormy. <3

Aubergine 07-01-2018 08:43 PM

Night night, Beckie. I hope you sleep well and that college goes well tomorrow. <3

not_so_insig 07-01-2018 08:46 PM

I have been watching Dancing on Ice.

not_so_insig 07-01-2018 08:51 PM

I also love the seaside. I used to live by the sea. I am a member of the National Piers Society. You find piers by the sea.

Aubergine 07-01-2018 08:51 PM

Enjoy it, Dawn? I don't really like reality TV programmes.

not_so_insig 07-01-2018 08:52 PM

It was ok.

nonperson 07-01-2018 08:57 PM

I love the sea. It's a kind of happy and sad place for me at the same time. Weird.

not_so_insig 07-01-2018 09:02 PM

There's a Yankee candle called sea air. I had it once.

Aubergine 07-01-2018 09:02 PM

I get that. I think places can definitely be both.


I'm getting tired now. I'm glad. Sleep soon, hopefully.


What are you up to, Person?

nonperson 07-01-2018 09:11 PM

Half-watching Rogue One and browsing the internet. Nothing interesting. I'm also getting tired.

Hope you get a good sleep tonight.

Sketchy 07-01-2018 09:19 PM

Hope you sleep well Aubergine.

Rogue one is a good film.

Aubergine 07-01-2018 09:31 PM

Thank you. :)


Anyone got any recommendations for a light comedy on Netflix or Amazon Prime?

Sketchy 07-01-2018 09:45 PM

The Big Bang theory and the IT crowd are on Netflix. I find them funny. Also Black Adder is good, but only series 2 to 4. First series isn’t funny.

Buttons. 08-01-2018 02:13 AM

I know what you mean about the sea, it's the same for me.

I've just discovered that Friends is now on Netflix which is good because it's easier for me than trying to put DVDs in the player. I also like Blackadder, I like the first episode of the first series but not really any of others in that series, like you Lorraine I prefer 2nd through to the last one.

Cacoethes 08-01-2018 06:52 AM

Morning guys
It's far too early to be awake

chinahorse 08-01-2018 09:46 AM

I agree beckie! And it's a few hours later now.

Was ment to be the start of my week off today but now I have to go into work :(

Aubergine 08-01-2018 09:58 AM

Morning. :)

chinahorse 08-01-2018 10:06 AM

Hallo :)

Got any plans today lovey?

MunchBox 08-01-2018 10:10 AM

Hello :)

Aubergine 08-01-2018 10:58 AM

Hey Lillie and Munchbox (I am SO sorry - your name escapes me right now)!


How's it going?


Shame you have to to work now, Lillie. So annoying when you get called in on days off. What time do you start?


I'm going for a walk with my Mum in a bit. She's working from home today, so I think she's grateful to be able to stop doing admin for a while! She said she's not coming over if I don't put my heating on though... :P

MunchBox 08-01-2018 11:02 AM

Haha, no worries, it's Mary.

I'm currently alone at home, waiting for my friends to finish their exams. I'm so bored.

Best put your heating on then but a walk sounds nice.

Aubergine 08-01-2018 11:10 AM

Mary. Of course! I did know it, just had a mind blank. :)


I'm sorry you're bored! Got much you could be getting on with? Anything to watch/read/instrument to play/music to listen to?


I have put my heating on now. Hopefully that'll keep her happy. :P It's very cold outside, but it's dry. Cold and dry and sunny is my favourite weather. I'm hoping we may drive to a beach we both like and go for a walk there. I like the beach by my flat, but the other one would make a change and I really like the drive there. :)

chinahorse 08-01-2018 11:26 AM

Glad the heating is on! I've become a bit of a scrooge with it too since living alone. Most of the time it's set to come on if it drops below 14. Except for 3 evening hours where it's 18. Fine if I'm out the house lol

Hope you get to go to the other beach, sounds like a nice day out if you get to go to either though.

Mary, maybe watch something online or go for a nice walk or something?

I wouldn't care if I was genuinely needed but I'm not. And I haven't had any time off at all since July! I could moan and moan about work. Boss is making my life hell whilst also being a friend. Grr.

Aubergine 08-01-2018 11:40 AM

Hehe. I don't have central heating, so no thermostat or anything - I just put on the electric heaters if I'm super cold. I have a heated throw for when I'm in my living room; I only tend to put the heating on if I have visitors. I am a scrooge!


Yeah, either beach would be OK. I have a snuggly warm coat and fluffy boots, so I will be protected against the elements! :)


Oh, that's really annoying. No time off since July? That's terrible!

chinahorse 08-01-2018 11:47 AM

How do you survive without central heating?!

Yeah, I was in treatment then went straight to work the day after being discharged. So the last time I had more than 2 days off in a row (which is rare enough) was summer!

MunchBox 08-01-2018 12:04 PM

Might watch The IT crowd as that has been keeping me entertained. Far too cold for a walk. Half of my friends are stingy when it comes to the hearing and the other would turn it on all night. It's currently off atm but I'm wrapped up warm.

Jesus, Lillie. You're superwoman.

Aubergine 08-01-2018 02:00 PM

Hello again! I went for a walk with my Mum and we stopped in a cafe for a hot chocolate. :) She's gone now. My flat is like living in a furnace now I've had the heating on, so I have turned it straight off! If I get cold, I will wrap up in my heated throw. Silly Mum.


No more than two days off in a row since Summer? I would be so cross! Makes me very grateful for my five day weekends!


IT Crowd is amazing! I'm glad you're wrapped up warm. :)

MunchBox 08-01-2018 02:56 PM

Ah hot chocolate sounds amazing.
Yeah, can't believe it took my so long to getting round to watching it. Bloody love it.

not_so_insig 08-01-2018 03:00 PM

I am worried. My nurse phoned me before and she's coming today. I am scared that she will want me IP or frogmarch to a psych. I am probably worrying over nothing though.

Aubergine 08-01-2018 03:01 PM

It's so good! Love Richmond. :D Have you seen it all?


My landlord just phoned me. At the moment my flat is managed by a letting agent because the last tenant had to be evicted and she didn't want that nightmare again. She called to ask me if I'd mind if she took over from the letting agent, because I've been here 18 months now and "haven't been a royal pain in the arse" so she feels OK to sort things herself. It's nice to know that she feels that way!

not_so_insig 08-01-2018 03:02 PM

That's good Aubergine.

Aubergine 08-01-2018 03:11 PM

I'm sure it will be OK, Dawn. :)


I have strawberries!

MunchBox 08-01-2018 03:21 PM

Haha! Yes! Richmond :,)
But Douglas, my god, his voice has me on stitches.

On season 4 atm

Aubergine 08-01-2018 03:24 PM

Oh he's funny too! Though also, how could ANYONE work for anyone like that? It's hilarious. And I bet there are company owners out there a bit like him!

Cacoethes 08-01-2018 03:32 PM

Hey guys

Richmond is my fav character in IT crowd!
Then Moss

Aubergine 08-01-2018 03:34 PM

Hey Beckie! How's it going?!


I love Moss too.

MunchBox 08-01-2018 03:35 PM

I know right, aubergine!

Beckie, how are you, lovely?

Cacoethes 08-01-2018 03:49 PM

Hey guys!
Im not bad thanks.
Got back from college early so yay!

How are you both?

Aubergine 08-01-2018 03:54 PM

I just got into bed! My bedroom is freezing, so I'm sandwiched between an electric under blanket and a heated throw. It's toasty.

Cacoethes 08-01-2018 03:58 PM

Sounds cosy!

Aubergine 08-01-2018 04:00 PM

It really is so very cosy!


You up to much?

Cacoethes 08-01-2018 04:15 PM

Nah.
Just watching tv and wishing dinner time would hurry up cos im hungry! :p

MunchBox 08-01-2018 05:03 PM

Whatcha cooking?

one_step_closer 08-01-2018 05:05 PM

Fooooood! I have steak pie and potatoes in the oven, going to have some cabbage with it. I've started having my dinner a lot earlier than I usually do because I'm just greedy and can't wait!
