Aubergine 11-09-2018 04:39 AM

Oops Little! Hope you got back to sleep. :)


I am awake and I really shouldn't be. :(

nonperson 11-09-2018 06:24 AM

I’m awake and really don’t want to be. =(

Aubergine 11-09-2018 06:26 AM

Oh dear, person! What time do you start work?

nonperson 11-09-2018 06:30 AM

7:30. =( Need to drag myself out of bed for a shower...

Aubergine 11-09-2018 06:32 AM

Well, that's a horrible time to start! I struggle with my 9am start on a Friday!

You can do it! *Cheerleads*

nonperson 11-09-2018 07:34 AM

I made it. Trying to muster up some motivation to actually start doing something.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 07:36 AM

Well done. :) What do you need to do first?

nonperson 11-09-2018 07:40 AM

Go into the glasshouse and start watering... My colleague isn’t in until 8:30 so I only have 50 mins now to dither.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 07:43 AM

Ah, ok. Can you do bits at a time? Maybe will be ok once you've started and got the momentum going?

chinahorse 11-09-2018 07:51 AM

I've had another 6.5 hours sleep and am still tired.

Hope you've managed to make a start NP.

Did the zopiclone not work aubergine?

Aubergine 11-09-2018 07:58 AM

I'm glad you got some more sleep, Lillie. Sorry you're still so tired though.


Not really, no. I did drop off more quickly, by about 12is, but I'm aware that I'm racking up quite a large sleep debt and I don't want it to set me back.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 07:58 AM

chinahorse 11-09-2018 08:11 AM

Can you speak to someone on your team about it?

Aubergine 11-09-2018 08:14 AM

My CC is on holiday for two weeks. Someone else from her team is supposed to be phoning me at some point to check in, so I could maybe speak to her. Probably not a bad idea. I think I'm just worried about a lot and that makes it difficult to sleep!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 08:37 AM

Oh chuck *cuddles* sounds silly but do you do something to unwind before bed?

Aubergine 11-09-2018 08:51 AM

Thank you. Yeah, I do. Usually listen to some einaudi and have some horlicks. Perhaps it'll be better tonight when I'm not going to work the next day?

chinahorse 11-09-2018 09:01 AM

I hope so. If not consider calling your team? Even if its not your own CC I'm sure they can listen and may have something useful to suggest?

Aubergine 11-09-2018 09:11 AM

Yeah, you might be right. I'll see how I go tonight and if it's the same again I'll call tomorrow.



How're you doing?

chinahorse 11-09-2018 09:24 AM

Thats a good plan.

I'm a bit flat I think? Very fatigued. I need a kick up the bum to wash my windows and shower and stop being a giant idiot.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 09:31 AM

You are in no way a giant idiot. Motivation can be hard to find sometimes, especially if you're feeling a bit flat. Don't be so hard on yourself.*hug*

chinahorse 11-09-2018 09:40 AM

Thank you :)

I have washed up, put laundry on, put the dry stuff away and am about to hang up the stuff I put on so not too shabby.

Just feel so meh. Oh well.

What're you up to today?

Aubergine 11-09-2018 09:46 AM

That's not shabby at all! Pretty amazing given how you're feeling.

Not much this morning. Got work at 2pm until 4:30pm. Trying to rest before hand so I'm completely useless when I get there

Do you have plans? Did you say that you've got an appointment today?

chinahorse 11-09-2018 10:03 AM

Resting up sounds good. And you're not useless. You're getting back into the swing of things and that takes mental and physical effort.

Yeah I am meeting with my psych and CPN at half 3. I also need to do some of my course for work and REALLY need to wash my windows. But that involves getting showered and dressed and I am too potato shaped to feel happy in any of my clothes. And my psych writes about my appearance in her report.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 10:09 AM

It's really knackering, to be honest. Takes so much emotional and mental energy. Especially when I haven't slept.

Oh Lillie. You are not potato shaped! I understand you not feeling comfortable in any of your clothes though. My psych writes about my appearance too. This time he wrote "kemp" which is an improvement!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 10:13 AM

Everythings harder when you haven't slept!

Lol I usually get 'has obviously taken care over her appearance' or 'wasn't wearing make up, usually a sign she is low'. Of course I'm gunna take care when you judge me on it!! She even managed to write about my appearance when I was in work uniform.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 10:16 AM

Very true.

Wow, she really does pay attention! How did she managed to do it when you were in your work uniform?

chinahorse 11-09-2018 10:18 AM

Something along the lines of 'in work clothing but somewhat dishevelled'. Dude It was midweek and mid way through the day, when I'm seeing you on my lunch break and I get up at 6.20am and run around like a blue arsed fly all day.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 10:25 AM

Haha! Yes, it's difficult to maintain an immaculate appearance in those conditions. I always look like a mess when I leave work at the end of the day!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 10:31 AM

Lol me too!

My mum just told me to treat myself and she'll put something in my bank. Shes such a sweetie.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 10:35 AM

Oh that's really lovely! What are you going to treat yourself to?

chinahorse 11-09-2018 10:35 AM

A starbucks I think. I adore their caramel coffee frappes.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 10:37 AM

Sounds great! We don't have a Starbucks here, which is a bit sad. About 5 million Costas though!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 10:37 AM

But only if I get off my derriere and shower and do some of my course. Its sort of raining so I may have to wash the windows later- but they are minging cos of the building work going on all around me.

chinahorse 11-09-2018 10:38 AM

We have 4 costas bt only 1 starbucks now. And about 8 billion other coffee shops.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 10:59 AM

Oh cleaning minging windows doesn't sound fun at all. You're so good. I've been here over two years and I haven't cleaned the windows once!


People do love a coffee shop!


Need to have some kind of food...

chinahorse 11-09-2018 11:25 AM

I don't blame you. Ive considered paying a window cleaner. Its just mine are so huge that I need to do it.

Ugh getting dressed was an ordeal. My body has decided to be super sensitive to everything ever so everything I put on felt like sandpaper.

Did you find any food?

Aubergine 11-09-2018 11:34 AM

Big windows are nice, but they do have their downsides!


Oh no. :( That sounds horrible. Well done for persevering! I would have probably just turned up in my pyjamas! Wonder what psych would make out of that...


I haven't got much in. Nothing that I fancy, anyway. :/

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 11:38 AM

Hello everyone

My mum has floor to ceiling windows on one whole side of the house. There are 5 of them in the kitchen/dining room alone!
I don't think she thought that through when building the house lol!!

Well done for doing the windows though. Like Aubergine, I have never done it!

That doesn't sound good Lillie.
Hopefully your body will get used to the clothes.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 11:46 AM

Hey Beckie! How are you?


I'm glad that I'm not the only one who doesn't clean their windows!


Wow, those windows sound pretty epic, Beckie! Bit of a pain though!

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 11:53 AM

Im ok thanks

Haha! Yeah ain't nobody got time for that

Yep! They tend to get Jasmine height finger prints on them a lot. And dog height nose prints :p

Aubergine 11-09-2018 11:57 AM

Haha! They sound like a faff!


Glad you're ok. :



My goodness, I am so tired.

nonperson 11-09-2018 11:57 AM

I’m also in the never-wash-the-windows club.

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 12:01 PM

How did you sleep Aubergine?

Yay np! Lol

Aubergine 11-09-2018 12:04 PM

Hey Person! Glad you're on mine and Beckie's team! :)

Slept for four hours. nowhere near enough!

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 12:07 PM

Oh dear, 4 hours is not enough at all!!

#teamdirtywindow

Aubergine 11-09-2018 12:15 PM

I found it really difficult to focus yesterday because I was so tired. Today is going to be worse. Bleurgh. Mind you, get through these 2.5 hours and I've got two days off! Hooray!

Haha! I love the name of our team!

one_step_closer 11-09-2018 12:39 PM

I thought I was the only one who didn't wash my windows! I seem to be the only one among my neighbours anyway, the person across from me has just finished cleaning her windows.

I hope you get on ok today Aubergine.

one_step_closer 11-09-2018 12:45 PM

Update: My neighbour has actually not finished washing her windows.

Just in case you wanted to know.

How's everyone getting on this afternoon?

My washing machine is beeping at me so I better go and get the clothes out and then have some lunch.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 12:48 PM

Yay Lindsay! You can join #teamdirtywindows :D


Thank you. :)


How're you today? Lunch and laundry is a good plan.

I really must get ready for work now. ugh.

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 01:03 PM

Hope work goes ok Aubergine!
Just think of the 2 days off!

Lunch and laundry sounds good!

I've just been to Aldi.
Its so hard to eat healthily when you have no money.
Pack of own brand jaffa cakes - 31p
A melon - 1 something
And frozen pizza for 85p!!
Its ridiculous!
Payday on Friday though so I'll be able to resume my healthy eating
