Done. =P

It's gone now, I think that was the last of it for today.

chinahorse 18-02-2018 12:49 PM

Haha thanks! It got lost on the way though :/ but the fog has gone now at least!

Aubergine 18-02-2018 01:09 PM

Heya. :)

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 01:31 PM

Heya :-)

Aubergine 18-02-2018 01:44 PM

Emma! Hey. :) How's it going?

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 01:59 PM

I’m bored lol. You?

Aubergine 18-02-2018 02:12 PM

Oh dear! I don't ever get bored, so am not sure what to suggest! *provides entertainment* :P


I'm good thanks. Still in bed, actually! It's glorious!

nonperson 18-02-2018 02:19 PM

Hullo all.

Aubergine 18-02-2018 02:22 PM

Yo Person! How're you?

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 02:29 PM

Hey person, how’s things?

Lol, thanks Aubergine- I get bored quite easily lol and don’t really ‘do’ being at home for very long. Missing my car cos no buses and I would normally have popped to my mum’s or a friend’s today.

nonperson 18-02-2018 02:35 PM

Yo. =)

I'm ok, just having some lunch and building up to going food shopping which I've left last minute yet again.

I've been a bit bored lately cos of having to be a permanent lap for the cat but he settled upstairs in the airing cupboard and has stayed there surprisingly. o.o

nonperson 18-02-2018 02:36 PM

How're you guys, other than bored and lazy in bed? ;-)

Aubergine 18-02-2018 02:43 PM

No buses on a Sunday is annoying. I'm sorry about your car. Can't imagine how frustrating it is if you're used to having it. Any luck getting a supporting letter from psych? I'll play the piano (badly) for you! :P


Aww. Kitty cat. :) I'm glad he's settled somewhere other than on your lap! :) I hope food shopping goes OK.


I'm good thanks. Lazy though, apparently. :P

nonperson 18-02-2018 02:44 PM

I'm only saying that because I'm jealous. It's a good kind of lazy!

Aubergine 18-02-2018 02:52 PM

Hehe! Speak to No One Saturday was full of people (how rude of them), so today is the day! I love bed. <3 It's so toasty with my electric blanket on. I'm currently sat on my bed, wrapped in my duvet and typing here. It's delightful!

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 03:00 PM

Psych hopefully doing paperwork for my appeal next week :-).

My mum just text offering to pick me up and then drop me home, which is kind cos it’s an hour and a half driving each way!

chinahorse 18-02-2018 03:01 PM

That sounds amazingly snuggle aubergine!

I've braved the outside world. And now to hibernate foe the remainder of the day with pizza. Oh and do some laundry.

Are you unbored yet Emma?

nonperson 18-02-2018 03:01 PM

You definitely deserve to stay in bed today then. Hope it was a nice Speak To Everyone Saturday though.

Your kitten is going to love your electric blanket by the way. I saw the pic - she looks just like one of my old cats. =)

chinahorse 18-02-2018 03:03 PM

Out ninjas!

That's lovely of her Emma. Hopefully she'll have some good gossip for you to keep you occupied lol.

I'm so jealous of you people with your kitties.

Aubergine 18-02-2018 03:03 PM

Oh that's great, Emma. :) Fingers crossed! That's kind of your Mum. Are you going to take her up on her offer?


Hey Lillie! Well done for braving the outside world! Pizza and hibernation sounds excellent. What toppings? Boo to laundry.

nonperson 18-02-2018 03:05 PM

We shouldn't talk about food just before I go to the shop........!!

*adds pizza to the list*

Aubergine 18-02-2018 03:05 PM

Argh! Ninjas!


You think kitty will love the electric blanket? Yay! She'll be very welcome to share it with me!


Lillie! You need to get a kitty!

chinahorse 18-02-2018 03:05 PM

I quite like doing laundry tbf. Makes my house smell nice.

It's just cheese but it is a fancy pizza express one. (Was reduced)

Aubergine 18-02-2018 03:05 PM

Yay for pizza, Person!

Aubergine 18-02-2018 03:06 PM

Ooo nice, Lillie!


Now will people stop posting so quickly so I can catch up. :P

nonperson 18-02-2018 03:08 PM

I need something quick for dinner tonight so a Pizza Express pizza would be awesome.

Are they half price in Tesco by any chance, chinahorse???

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 03:08 PM

Yeah we’re going to go to Windsor for dinner :-). Just have to amuse myself until 6!

That sounds nice Lillie.

chinahorse 18-02-2018 03:08 PM

Haha I'm like that too when I go food shopping NP.

I want a kitty too but its be unfair atm with the amount of hours I work. Not to mention I'm not allowed one.

Aubergine 18-02-2018 03:11 PM

Only four hours, Emma! Ooo Windsor. Posh. :P


That's true about the number of hours you work. Hmm. Could you ask if you were allowed another kind of pet, if one would make you happy/you could make it happy?

chinahorse 18-02-2018 03:12 PM

NP, they aren't but I got mine reduced for date in tesco. They have some other pizzas on a deal though.

Erm read a book Emma? Have a nap? I'm useless at suggestions because I'm an always on the go person too even if my body wishes I wasn't lol.

chinahorse 18-02-2018 03:12 PM

Nah I want a pet that will love me aubergine and give me cuddles.

Aubergine 18-02-2018 03:16 PM

I can understand that, Lillie. Kind of why I went for a kitty cat. Though my Dad has a cat and it is the most miserable thing! She doesn't like being stroked, or even really being near you. Spends all of her time sat in whichever room has no humans in.

nonperson 18-02-2018 03:19 PM

Windsor's not that posh. They've got to clean up all the homeless people for the Royal Wedding... *eye roll*

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 03:22 PM

Haha NP!

nonperson 18-02-2018 03:22 PM

Aaanyway, enough stalling... I better get to the shop. *cry*

See you all later.

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 03:23 PM

Have fun :-)

Might go watch Big Bang Theory in bed for a bit

Aubergine 18-02-2018 03:25 PM

My Grandpa use to live in Englefield Green. I don't remember it that well, to be honest. He got the house with his job at Royal Holloway, then retired down here.

I've read about them clearing the homeless for the wedding. :(

Aubergine 18-02-2018 03:26 PM

Hope it goes OK, Person!



Sounds good, Emma!

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 03:47 PM

Yep. Bed is warm!

Buttons. 18-02-2018 04:19 PM

The clearing out the homeless is disgusting. Tbh our country's general attitude to the homeless is disgusting. Even people who don't realise their own attitudes, it's like the sw I was with today was like 'oh my God you just gave that homeless man some change for a coffee and gave him a cig-I wouldn't even have thought to do that'-I was like what world are we living in? It's a bit of change and a cig.

Hope shopping goes well Np.

Big bang theory andwarm bed are awesome.

I've not long got back from a Chinese buffet with my sw-I am full to bursting point and have probably put on half the weight I've lost this month but I don't care-it was awesome! The support worker was my age as well and we had a proper good laugh and chat. The only tiny fly in the pointment was the restaurant has apparently now started locking the back disabled access door (the front one has steps) and the sign on the door says basically if you are disabled and need to use this door knock loudly and wait until someone notices you to let you in, which defintely draws unwanted attention of other diners etc.

Pomegranate 18-02-2018 05:12 PM

Chinese buffet sounds epic! Although that’s annoying about the backdoor. Is she a regular sw?

nonperson 18-02-2018 05:20 PM

Survived the shop. Bought pizza!

There's nothing better than a chinese buffet. Mmm.

chinahorse 18-02-2018 05:56 PM

Glad ypu enjoyed it buttons :) could you notcall ahead and have someone waiting to let you in at a set time?

Yay for surviving the shop NP. Did you get some
Yummy treats?

I had a nap but now feel even worse. No fair!

Cacoethes 18-02-2018 06:15 PM

Hello peeps
I am back home

Glad you enjoyed the buffet Buttons!
love a Chinese buffet!

Yay for pizza nonperson!

Sorry you feel worse Lillie. That is so unfair!

Im going to order dominoes.
Slimming world totally out of the window this week but I've had so much going on that healthy eating has not been a top priority!

nonperson 18-02-2018 06:31 PM

I did get yummy treats, mostly crisps and chocolate biscuits and ingredients to make fudge fat bombs which are now chilling in the freezer.

You need a break from dieting sometimes, Beckie!

My frozen supermarket pizza is going to be eclipsed by your Dominos! =( It is "takeaway style" with a stuffed crust though. =P

Sketchy 18-02-2018 06:31 PM

Sorry you aren’t feeling well Lillie. Hope you feel better soon.

Dominos is a yummy plan Beckie.

Cacoethes 18-02-2018 06:34 PM

Sounds good nonperson!
And it has to be stuffed crust! Nom!

Hey Lorraine!
How are you?

Sketchy 18-02-2018 06:40 PM

I’m ok thanks. You?

CBS drama is showing ER episodes all night, so my night is sorted.

Buttons. 18-02-2018 06:41 PM

Thanks Pomegranate :)

Never met this sw before but she was very nice and friendly.

Lillie sorry you aren't feeling too good *hugs gently* I would have if I had known but it's a new thing, previously always just let me and whoever in ourselves no bother.

Oooh yummy treats-send some my way np!

And I agree Beckie, I'm only casually dieting at the moment have lost a fair bit after leaving hosp and not drinking at all though) and my weight fluctuates but frankly other things in my life and my MH are more important right now. And you are right. Stuffed crust pizza is life!!!

Cacoethes 18-02-2018 06:41 PM

Not bad. Bit cold!!
Put the heating on so will hopefully warm up soon!

Sounds good! I've never watched ER but I do like that sort of show

Glad the sw was friendly! It really helps when you get on with them.

You are right Buttons, there are more important things right now
