Sounds like the perfect excuse to do nothing!

chinahorse 04-11-2018 02:49 PM

Mmmmmmmm brownie!

The wind is bitter rn. Heating is working over time.

I agree with np that waiting in sounds like a good reason to do nothing beckie!

Am having mac n cheese fingers and chips. Had to have some granola to tide me over lol. Definitely need to do something with the pumpkin today.

Anyone else fancy an afternoon nap? *snores*

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 02:50 PM

Haha yep!!
I am quite enjoying not having anything to do
Although I miss swimming!

Sounds yummy Lillie!

nonperson 04-11-2018 02:55 PM

Do you think you'll have time to go swimming at all today?

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 03:07 PM

Depends on when the electrician arrives

Aubergine 04-11-2018 03:46 PM


Cacoethes 04-11-2018 03:48 PM

Hey aubergine
How are you?

Aubergine 04-11-2018 03:51 PM

I'm OK. Did kid's church this morning for the first time in months. I was really nervous, but I think it went OK. :)

How're you?

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 03:54 PM

That's good :)

Im ok thanks
Should probably do some cleaning

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:01 PM

Boo to cleaning. Though it's nice when it's done!

I may have a sofa snooze.

nonperson 04-11-2018 04:01 PM

*collapses into thread after doing mass washing up*

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:03 PM

Well done, Person!

nonperson 04-11-2018 04:05 PM

Thanks. Still haven't finished though. =/

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 04:06 PM

Thats true aubergine!

Sofa snooze sounds like a good plan

Well.done np!

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:06 PM

But it sounds as though you've made a good start!

nonperson 04-11-2018 04:13 PM

Yep I can see my worktop again!

Random question relating to snoozing:

Aubergine, how cat proof is your heated throw?

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:16 PM

I was going to sofa snooze, but now Alec the Cat is taking up half of the sofa. >.<

I've had no problems with the cat and the heated throw. He doesn't try and eat it or the cables or anything. I have got it plugged into a surge protecting plug thing, but I don't know that I actually need to do that.

nonperson 04-11-2018 04:20 PM

Does he do that pummelling thing with his claws on it when he's getting comfy?

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:21 PM

Nope. He's never done that, for some reason. He just kind of flops on it!

Indigo. 04-11-2018 04:29 PM

Hey Aubergine! Hope you get to snooze soon.

Massive well done NP, sounds like you've done quite a bit. Doing the washing up is exhausting.

Hope the electrician cones soon Beckie.

That sounds yummy, Lillie. I wish I had granola now. Contemplating going to the shop for some sort of snack when my girlfriend wakes up. What do you plan on doing with the pumpkin?

nonperson 04-11-2018 04:30 PM

My cat pummels A LOT before settling down, I just wondered if it would damage the wires inside.

No chance of stretching out on the sofa now...

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:35 PM

Hey Lucy!

Hmm. I'm not sure, Person. How do normal blankets bear up?

nonperson 04-11-2018 04:39 PM

I just have a normal fleece throw at the moment and it's mostly fine except for a few pulled threads.

Very cute pic. =D His grey seems to have gotten really dark.

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 04:41 PM

Aww cute kitty!!

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:43 PM

It has got much darker as he's got older. He'll be a year old (and not a kitten anymore) in February!

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 04:46 PM

Oh wow!
That's gone fast!

Buttons. 04-11-2018 04:46 PM

Time flies!! Aww cosy kitty. Can't believe I've had my dog about 7\8 months already!!

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:47 PM

Hehe! He's funny. He's quite shy around strangers, moreso than he used to be. I think it's because the flat is our territory!

I'll tell him you think he's cute. And that he shouldn't let it go to his head!

Hmm. I'm not sure then, person. I think it would depend on the material of the blanket. I had one stiffer one before I got this one (it broke) and that would have probably been better with le chat.

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:47 PM

Yo buttons!

Buttons. 04-11-2018 04:49 PM

Yo Aubergine :) How are you?

My dog isn't normally massively territorial but the fireworks are driving her up the wall, despite calming collar and distraction and such.

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 04:50 PM

Bless him!

Hey Buttons

Buttons. 04-11-2018 04:53 PM

Hey Beckie, hows you?

Aubergine 04-11-2018 04:54 PM

Aww poor dogster. Alec really wasn't fussed by the fireworks last night!

Indigo. 04-11-2018 04:55 PM

Awww Alec the Cat is just adorable, perhaps infuriatingly so while stealing your spot on the sofa.

I couldn't move for the past two hours because my girlfriend's cat was asleep on me(and she's a huge cat!)

Fireworks are nice to watch but the noise sucks.

Hey Buttons, how are you?

Buttons. 04-11-2018 05:01 PM

Glad Alec wasn't fussed by the fireworks. Can we swap pets until after bonfire night? :P

Ha ha like the cat imprisonment Indigo! I'm okay having a chillaxing day.

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 05:01 PM

Im ok thanks
Still waiting for electrician!

All this talk of cats makes me want one!

Aubergine 04-11-2018 05:02 PM

It is illegal to move a sleeping cat.

Aubergine 04-11-2018 05:03 PM

Nope Buttons, sorry. I think I'd get separation anxiety...

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 05:06 PM

Must never move a sleeping animal!

Buttons. 04-11-2018 05:09 PM

Waking a sleeping guinea pig can be a dangerous move!

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 05:12 PM

Guinea pigs are adorable!

Buttons. 04-11-2018 05:12 PM

True, I had two, but still dangerous to wake!!

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 05:15 PM

We had two when I lived at home
Don't think we ever woke them up though!

Aubergine 04-11-2018 05:21 PM

It seems Alec was not taking up enough space as he was, so he's decided that I must be his pillow or move out of the way. Of course, being a lowly human servant, I have submitted to his will and my leg is now his highness's head rest. I know my place.

Aubergine 04-11-2018 05:21 PM

Guinea pigs are cute!

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 05:22 PM

Haha Aubergine!!

Indigo. 04-11-2018 05:27 PM

Lol Aubergine, that's an accurate description of being a cat servant XD

I'm having a chillaxed day too Buttons.

Beckie, the electrician is surely taking their time!

Cacoethes 04-11-2018 05:31 PM

I really hope they do actually turn up!
If not I will be rather annoyed

Indigo. 04-11-2018 05:33 PM

I hope so too Beckie!

I'm waiting for my girlfriend to wake up and it's been hours since I've been up. I might take a nap.
