Hey Nonperson. How’s it going?

nonperson 08-03-2018 09:06 PM

It's going. Watching new Big Bang.

Did you do any arty stuff while away?

zombiehunter 08-03-2018 09:09 PM


how the **** was oban??

Sketchy 08-03-2018 09:17 PM

I did. I got plenty of sketching done and I’m going to turn them into charcoal drawings.

Hey Zombie. How are you? Oban was great thanks .

not_so_insig 08-03-2018 09:40 PM

Hello everybody

Sketchy 08-03-2018 10:02 PM

Hey Dawn, how are you?

not_so_insig 08-03-2018 10:41 PM

I am in a lot less pain now. Nearly back to normal.

Sketchy 08-03-2018 10:48 PM

Glad you are in less pain.

not_so_insig 08-03-2018 10:56 PM

Yeah I am glad too. I fell asleep before and since then I have felt better.

chinahorse 08-03-2018 11:54 PM

That's good dawn.

Hey rainey :) charcoal is such a fluid and inretesting medium. I'd live to see some when you get them done!

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 12:00 PM

Morning/afternoon guys

Aubergine 09-03-2018 12:01 PM

Heya. :)

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 12:06 PM

Hey Aubergine
How are you?

Aubergine 09-03-2018 12:09 PM

Hey Beckie. How's it going?

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 12:10 PM

Got a headache but hopefuly the neurofen will sort it!

How about you?

Aubergine 09-03-2018 12:18 PM

Oh I hope it goes soon. :) Got any plans for the day?

I'm OK. On a train! Just bought myself a ridiculously priced hot chocolate. :P

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 12:22 PM

Thanks :)
Got to see CC and crisis, go to asda and I'm pretty sure i have some college thing due today :/

Is it a good hot chocolate?!

Aubergine 09-03-2018 12:27 PM

I hope it goes OK with CC and crisis. Be honest with them. <3 Getting anything nice from Asda? What's due for college? I submutted my first essay for uni on Wednesday. I'm not feeling very confident!

It's a lovely hot chocolate! :)

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 12:33 PM

Thank you <3
Just the ususl stuff from asda! Milk, yogurt and pasta.
Its just a reflection on a discussion. 500 words so not a huge piece of work.

Im sure you'll do fine!
Well done for getting it submitted!

Good :)

Aubergine 09-03-2018 12:44 PM

Nice! Oh, you can do it. :) 500 words in a day is achieveable! :)

Thank you! I've read some things on the OU forums, like people panicking because they've missed the deadline and not asked for extensions etc, so I feel a bit better. I know I've got at least 6 marks out of 100 because I managed to input some data into an online table, and you get six marks just for adding to the table, whether your data is correct or not. :P I'd be happy with 6. ;)

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 12:46 PM

It will still take me bloody ages because I'll write a sentence and then reward myself with a 2 hour break :p

Haha! I'm pretty sure you'll get more than 6!

Aubergine 09-03-2018 12:52 PM

Haha you sound like me. :P With this one I was like - write a sentence, potter about a bit, do the washing up (if ever there was a way of getting me to wash up, it's by making write an assignment), make a cup of tea, write another sentence, watch some TV, hoover the floor, have a look on the forum, make another cup of tea et cetera. :P

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 12:55 PM

Haha! Yep that sounds familiar! XD

Eska 09-03-2018 12:56 PM

Hi Aubergine and Beckie!

Good luck with the assignment and everything Beckie, I hope it goes well with your CC and all.

Aubergine I'm sure you'll be fine!

Aubergine 09-03-2018 12:58 PM


Up to much? I am trying not to fall asleep or I'll end up in Aberdeen...

Aubergine 09-03-2018 12:58 PM

Hey Eska! How are you?

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 01:02 PM

Thanks eska!

That wouldn't be good Aubergine!!

Aubergine 09-03-2018 01:05 PM

No, it wouldn't be good! I want to go north, but not THAT north. :P

I'm off to Newcastle in June to go to my friend's ordination (she's training to be a vicar)! Then off to Christian camp in July. So many thing to look forward to! (And get anxious about. :P)

tiptoes 09-03-2018 01:06 PM

Can you set an alarm for 10 minutes before you are due in your station Ducky?

I was just the same when I had assignments too!

Eska 09-03-2018 01:09 PM

I'm ok, having a relaxed day off.

Aubergine 09-03-2018 01:15 PM

Hey Sarah! How's it going? I've woken up a bit now. Was so tired a short while ago! Might set an alarm anyway, just in case I drop off...

I'm glad you're having a relaxing day off, Eska. :)

tiptoes 09-03-2018 01:24 PM

It's going ok, I'm having a fairly relaxing day too :)

Glad you have woken up a bit but maybe an alarm would be a good backup. I don't know what it is but trains always make me sleepy.

Do you have any plans for your day Eska?

Aubergine 09-03-2018 01:33 PM

Relaxing day sounds nice. :)

I have now set an alarm. Another hour and 40 minutesish before I change... Though the train manager guy has just said to me "you could make the train that goes 5 minutes after we arrive" and I think he was trying to be helpful, but it's just made me go "arghhhIcan'tand30minuteschangeovertimeisfineandar ghhhh". :wow: I think I'll tell assistance person at the other end that we'll stick to the original plan...

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 01:37 PM

Relaxing day sounds good guys!!

Thats a long time aubergine!

tiptoes 09-03-2018 01:40 PM

Do whatever you feel comfortable with Ducky, I guess some people would be more stressed waiting in the station and others more stressed running for a train. Remember they are there to make this easier for you.

How are you getting on beckie?

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 01:42 PM

Agree with sarah!

Meh. Just about to go to asda.
Fun times!

How are you?

Aubergine 09-03-2018 01:42 PM

Thanks Sarah. :) That's true. I would honestly rather wait an hour changing over than rush.

I am studying nutrition at the moment and it's making me rethink my Asda online shop. :P

Aubergine 09-03-2018 01:43 PM

I hope Asda is OK, Beckie!

not_so_insig 09-03-2018 01:46 PM

Whenever I used to visit my friend in Warrington I would prefer to wait 30 mins than rush between trains. Especially if it meant that I could have a coffee. Especially as they change platforms all the time so I didn't know which one to get. Haven't been to Warrington for a while because my friend prefers to meet half way since her husband is a nightmare (he has dementia) if left alone too long.

Aubergine 09-03-2018 01:47 PM

Sounds similar to me, Dawn! Half way sounds good if your friend's husband struggles on his own. :) How are you?

not_so_insig 09-03-2018 01:58 PM

I am struggling a little but otherwise I'm good.

tiptoes 09-03-2018 02:01 PM

It depends on what kind of day I'm having which person I am. Some times it's nice to have a bit of calm other times I just have to get on a train as quick as possible.

It's good you are able to meet halfway dawn.

Have fun in asda beckie!

tiptoes 09-03-2018 02:02 PM

Sorry you are struggling a little Dawn, anything we can do to help?

chinahorse 09-03-2018 02:11 PM

Blergh so much sky water today :/

Hugs for you all xx

Aubergine 09-03-2018 02:25 PM

I hope things feel easier soon, Dawn.

Hey Lillie. How's it going?

chinahorse 09-03-2018 02:30 PM

4 hours till I can curl up in a ball and give up.
Even veggie Colin the caterpillar didn't cheer me up!

How's the journey going?

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 02:31 PM

Asda was fine thanks guys.
Didn't need much so was in and out in less than 10 minutes.
The heavens have opened! Luckily I got home in time to miss it.

How's everyone doing?

Even colin won't cheer you up lillie?!?

Aubergine 09-03-2018 02:37 PM

Oh no, Lillie. :( *sends something else to cheer you up, though I'm not sure what if even Colin has failed!* Have a hug. :)

I'm glad Asda was OK, Beckie. And that you got home before the rain!

The journey is OK. Though the closer to my next station I get the more anxious I'm feeling. Oh to be normal. :P

Pomegranate 09-03-2018 02:37 PM

Hi everyone.

On train to doctors for blood test. So anxious today I feel sick.

Cacoethes 09-03-2018 02:41 PM

Im sure you'll be fine Aubergine. You've done well so far!

Sorry you feel anxious emma.
Could you do something to treat yourself after your blood test?
