Aubergine 11-09-2018 02:16 PM

So more pizza today? Needs must and all that...

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 02:19 PM

That felt too unhealthy! Lol
I got spaghetti instead. 20p!

Eska 11-09-2018 02:29 PM

My housemate owns the house we live in so I leave the cleaning of windows to him! Gonna have to do some in the new place though I think...

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 02:43 PM

In the places I've lived, the windows don't appear dirty so I've been able to get away with it!

Aubergine 11-09-2018 02:47 PM

Ooo spaghetti is lovely!


Sounds like a plan, Eska!


I'm stood outside the hospital I work in. This is going to be such an effort!

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 02:56 PM

Yep spaghetti is good!

Just think of the days off aubergine.
You can do it!!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 03:06 PM

Fuit is expensive but veg much much cheaper Beckie!

You can do it aubergine!

Obviously 14 hours asleep wasn't enough so I've just had a few more. *rolls eyes at self*

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 03:13 PM

That is true!

You must have needed it Lillie!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 03:19 PM

Honestly feel like I could sleep more!

Should work on making myself look acceptable.

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 03:21 PM

You must be exhausted!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 03:25 PM

Yep. CBA to leave the house.

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 03:29 PM

Don't blame you!
Do you have to be out for long?

chinahorse 11-09-2018 03:33 PM

Only a couple of hours but Ive just looked at the buses and unless I move now I will be late. For a 3 mile journey and an appointment at 3.30. Grr.

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 03:34 PM

Ugh what a pain

chinahorse 11-09-2018 04:08 PM

I am out! And on a bus that hasn't sey off yet so I'll probably be late. And my hair didn't appreciate the moisture and it's super fluffy now.

What're you up to?

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 04:19 PM

Hope it goes ok!

Just watching a film
Probably should do some cleaning but not feeling very motivated!
House inspection is on Monday so I've still got time

chinahorse 11-09-2018 05:45 PM

It was as so so as I predicted it would be.

What film did you watch? Might be easier to do the tidying bit by bit though? And you always seem to be having house inspections!

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 05:49 PM

I watched Gravity
I have house inspections every 3 months!
They are fussy

Aubergine 11-09-2018 06:03 PM

Did it! It was hard, but I did it. Bit worried though because I was supposed to be increasing my hours next week but my manager has asked me not to because she thinks it'll be too much. I'm worried that I'm not doing well enough. :/

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 06:04 PM

You're doing really well!
It can be so hard to get back to everything you were doing before after a period of illness but you are smashing it! Don't doubt yourself!

Aubergine 11-09-2018 06:09 PM

Thank you. I'm just so very tired! Fingers crossed for a good sleep tonight!


How's your afternoon been?

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 06:27 PM

You deserve a good sleep!

Boring really!

Aubergine 11-09-2018 06:32 PM

Boo to boring! I don't get bored, but I can't imagine it's much fun. *Provides entertainment* :)


Cat is snuggled up to me. Should be tidying up, but I'm sat on the sofa with the cat snuggled next to me and I genuinely don't think I can move!

not_so_insig 11-09-2018 06:36 PM

You can't move cats. It's the law.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 06:40 PM

Hehe Dawn! You are absolutely right with that one! :

How are you?

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 06:46 PM

No it isn't fun!

Yep Dawn is right, you're not allowed to move now!!

not_so_insig 11-09-2018 06:54 PM

I am not too bad thanks.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 07:01 PM

Stuck here until the cat moves? That's fine with me! Quite content to stay in this position all evening!


I'm glad that you are ok, Dawn. How has your day been?

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 07:39 PM

what's everyone up to?

not_so_insig 11-09-2018 07:51 PM

Nothing much just watching tv and drinking wine.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 08:23 PM

I have just ordered a takeaway roast dinner!

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 08:28 PM

Ooo yum!
I can't believe you can get a takeaway roast dinner!

nonperson 11-09-2018 08:33 PM

It's the sort of weather for pies and roast dinners.

Aubergine 11-09-2018 08:36 PM

Mmm. Pie!

Yup, takeaway roast dinner. Absolutely awesome! With honey roast parsnips of course!

How are you, Person?

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 08:38 PM

Honey roast parsnips?!
Nom!
I am jealous!

nonperson 11-09-2018 08:43 PM

I'm ok, knackered but survived the day. And I had cornish pasty, veg and gravy for dinner which is nearly as good as a takeaway roast but definitely would have been better with roast parsnips.

How's everyone tonight?

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 08:47 PM

Glad you survived np!
Cornish pasty, veg and gravy sounds lovely!

My dinner of plain spaghetti with some salt pales in comparison XD

I'm ok. Still watching mock the week!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 08:49 PM

Take away roast is a thing?!

Beckie, I always keep bread in the freezer for such situations.

I'm cream crackered.

nonperson 11-09-2018 08:51 PM

I quite like plain pasta. =/

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 08:52 PM

Bread in the freezer is a very good idea!

Early night Lillie?

Plain pasta is nice, but it's no roast dinner or Cornish pasty!!

chinahorse 11-09-2018 08:54 PM

I read spaghetti as spaghetti in a tin not the long pasta. Oops.

nonperson 11-09-2018 08:56 PM

Tinned spaghetti is also good. =)

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 08:59 PM

I do also like tinned spaghetti!

nonperson 11-09-2018 09:00 PM

Not spaghetti hoops though...

chinahorse 11-09-2018 09:04 PM

Whaaaaat? ! Hoops are the best kind. Other than the shapes you get in tiny tins for kids.

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 09:04 PM

Whats wrong with spaghetti hoops?!

I agree Lillie!

Aubergine 11-09-2018 09:09 PM

Manager just sent me this:

I was just about to message you to reassure you that you are doing amazing but o don’t want to push you and that I hoped you didn’t think I was out of place to keep your hours the same. My main aim to make sure we set pace of your return that doesn’t put you under to much stress to early. You’ve had a few stressful things to deal with so just want to make sure I’m not adding to it. I look forward to having you back uk to full hours but there is no rush you are a long term investment :)


So I feel a bit better about the whole thing now. She's awesome!

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 09:16 PM

Aw that's so nice of her!
She sounds like a great boss!

nonperson 11-09-2018 09:20 PM

That's a really nice message. She's right, there is no rush.

Also, I don't know what it is about spaghetti hoops or the kid's shapes... They just seem watery and unsubstantial. =/

Cacoethes 11-09-2018 09:22 PM

I'm not a fan of the kids shapes ones but I do love a tin of spaghetti hoops!!
