Good stuff Beckie, I often leave my shoes just sitting somewhere and they're still wet the next day. Watching the rain is good, I like storms too. Can remember in one of the places I used to live there were so many storms and power cuts but think I've only had a partial power cut where I live now.

Oh no Dawn, cold water isn't fun! Hope you warm up soon. Are the workmen making a lot of noise?

I don't really know how I am!

not_so_insig 24-01-2018 03:37 PM

They aren't too bad atm but I suspect that it will get worse over the next few weeks.

one_step_closer 24-01-2018 03:39 PM

Do you know how long the work is going to take? Will you be able to go out and do things sometimes during the day to get away from the noise?

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 03:40 PM

I love storms too!

Well, I guess not knowing how you are is better than not feeling good!
Got much on today?

According to the notice it could take up to 8 weeks. I will get out as much as possible. I am going out tomorrow.

Aubergine 24-01-2018 04:17 PM

Storms are great! When I'm inside... :P

Hey Lindsay!

Hey Dawn!


not_so_insig 24-01-2018 04:23 PM

Hey Ducky.

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 04:24 PM

Oh yes, have to be inside!!
Although if I'm in a 'happier than normal' phase and it's raining or storming, I'll go out and dance in it
It is fun! :p

Hey Aubergine!

Aubergine 24-01-2018 04:30 PM


I have been out to dance in the summer rain before. I've never had a happier that normal phase though; I just really hate the hot weather! :P

Aubergine 24-01-2018 04:31 PM

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 04:37 PM

Maybe it's quite a normal thing then!! :p

You up to much?

Aubergine 24-01-2018 04:44 PM

Yup, we're quite normal. :)

I'm still sat listening to music. :) How about you?

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 04:48 PM


I'm finishing assignment.
It's going to take forever because I'll write a few words then reward myself with coming on the internet :p

Aubergine 24-01-2018 04:50 PM

Hehe. I was doing that the other day with my PDP. It took five hours rather than 30 minutes... :whistling: You can do it though! What is it now, less than 500 words to go?

one_step_closer 24-01-2018 04:54 PM

The internet is so distracting! You're getting there though Beckie, you've done quite a lot since yesterday haven't you?

one_step_closer 24-01-2018 04:54 PM

Although I probably should not be asking you questions because that will distract you further!

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 04:57 PM

Yep just less than 500 now!
Im on the home stretch!

Yes I did get quite a bit done yesterday

Haha! Its all your fault Lindsay :p

not_so_insig 24-01-2018 05:01 PM

I have hiccups.

Currently debating whether to have fajitas or duck with pancakes for tea.

one_step_closer 24-01-2018 05:08 PM

Keep going Beckie! I will take the blame on this occasion only.

I've never had duck with pancakes. Sounds interesting. Can you have a bit of both fajitas and duck with pancakes? Decisions can be so hard to make especially with yummy food.

one_step_closer 24-01-2018 05:09 PM

Oh and BOO! (That was to scare Dawn's hiccups away).

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 05:13 PM

Duck and pancakes is AMAZING!!!

not_so_insig 24-01-2018 05:28 PM

My hiccups have gone but now my cat has them.

I have decided to have duck with pancakes because I have a cucumber that needs using. Love cucumber with duck and pancakes.

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 05:35 PM

I am jealous!!

Aubergine 24-01-2018 06:28 PM

I don't know how you go to Asda everyday, Beckie!

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 06:36 PM

It can be a very stressful place!
I dont have much of a choice though. :p

Aubergine 24-01-2018 06:38 PM

We got out just before the after-work rush! Phew!

How's the assignment going?

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 06:53 PM

That's lucky!
Supermarkets in rush hour are hell!!

About 300 words to go.
I had to rewrite some of it which was annoying but nearly done now!

What are you up to?

Aubergine 24-01-2018 06:57 PM

It was lucky!

You're doing well! Keep going! :D You will have to reward yourself with something other than the internet when you've finished. :P

I'm sat on my bed eyeing up the family platter of fruit that I bought from Asda. :P

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 07:11 PM

Im not sure what to reward myself with!

Ooo what fruit did you get?
And very healthy choice there!

Aubergine 24-01-2018 07:15 PM

It's this ready prepared range of fruit, that says is designed for families, but I think is designed for Aubergines. :) I also got gingerbread men. Those are medicinal though... :P

What about one of those Terry's Chocolate Orange bars? Do they still do those? It might be OK within your SW allowance. :)

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 07:25 PM

I could defo eat a fruit platter for a family! :p
Love gingerbread men!
They are medicinal, they used to help when I had morning sickness!

That's a good idea!
I'll check them out.

one_step_closer 24-01-2018 07:37 PM

I'm eating a packet of sugar snap peas most days now. So good!

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 07:42 PM

Ooo nice!
I might have some snack a jacks in a bit.

200 words to go.
I don't know what else to write!!

one_step_closer 24-01-2018 07:46 PM

What's your favourite flavour of snack a jacks? I think mine is salt and vinegar. Kind of want some now so make sure you eat them for me too!

Can you do something totally different from uni stuff? Sometimes changing activity can actually help you have fresh thoughts about essay content.

Aubergine 24-01-2018 07:48 PM

Love sugar snap peas!

Could you write "I AM AMAZING SO GRADE ME 100" lots of times, or however they grade the access stuff.

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 08:00 PM

I like the sweet chilli ones!

I just want to get it done now!

Haha! Totally could do that aubergine :p
I read somewhere that you can put in a load of white text because obvs they don't count all the words themselves and it will show as 3000 on the word count still.
But I'm too scared to do it!

Aubergine 24-01-2018 08:07 PM

I didn't know about that white text thing! I don't think I'd recommend it though. What if they highlight it for some reason?!

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 08:08 PM

Id never have the balls to try it!

100 words away.

Aubergine 24-01-2018 08:08 PM


(Please don't steal my caps)

nonperson 24-01-2018 08:18 PM


Aubergine 24-01-2018 08:28 PM

Hey Person!

one_step_closer 24-01-2018 08:32 PM

Beckie you ARE doing this!

Hi nonperson, how's things?

nonperson 24-01-2018 08:38 PM

Hi folks. I'm eating cheesecake with sugar in it this time so things are much better.

How's everyone?

Aubergine 24-01-2018 08:47 PM

Yay! Cheesecake!

I am cooking pasta and chicken.

nonperson 24-01-2018 08:49 PM

I had pasta and pesto and a load of veg I threw in to make me feel like I was being healthy.

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 08:50 PM

It is done!

Yay for cheesecake!

Pasta is great in general.
Especially with pesto!

Aubergine 24-01-2018 08:52 PM

I might add some spinach...

Yay Beckie! Really well done!

Cacoethes 24-01-2018 08:55 PM

Good idea!
Get some iron in!


Aubergine 24-01-2018 08:57 PM

Shoved some spinach and butternut squash in. I love frozen veg.

nonperson 24-01-2018 08:57 PM

I added some kale, that's kinda like spinach. =)

Well done Beckie, knew you could do it! Bet you feel so relieved now.
