Had toast and mackerel pate cos not really eaten much today so was hungry!

Buttons. 06-02-2018 02:21 AM

My sleep pattern is a bit off and I find falling asleep to the TV good for getting my brain to shut up long enough to nod off.

I like toast and mackerel but not pate, hope you enjoyed though :) Surprised other people are still up! My dog poked her head out of the covers looked at me like 'are you getting food? no? I'm going back to sleep, sod you' :P

Aubergine 06-02-2018 02:26 AM

That sounds like a nice snack. :) Has your friend called yet?

I'm in bed now. It's definitely warmer in bed than it is sat on it. Managed to move myself again before I turned into an ice cube.

Hey Buttons. Poor dog!

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 02:29 AM

Poor doggy lol. You in bed then Buttons?

Yeah she has. Just general chit chat, she told me not to rush to meet her and other friend tomorrow which was nice.

Glad you’re warmer. Well done for getting into bed :-)

Buttons. 06-02-2018 02:41 AM

Ha ha she's now snoring so don't think she's suffering too badly :P

No I'm on the sofa atm, too awake to try to sleep yet. Might try in half an hour or so.

That sounds like a good chat :)

Aubergine 06-02-2018 03:01 AM

General chit chat sounds good. It's nice that you don't have to rush out tomorrow. I hope you have a lovely time with them. :)

I'm tired. I think I might try and sleep. Night night. :)

Buttons. 06-02-2018 03:09 AM

Hope you sleep well :)

Aubergine 06-02-2018 07:47 AM

Morning. I have a cracking headache and I do not know why I am awake.

Cacoethes 06-02-2018 08:08 AM


Headaches are awful :(
Hope it eases up soon
It is very early to be awake!

chinahorse 06-02-2018 09:41 AM

Morning guys. It's very very cold!

Hope you've managed to doze back off aubergine.

Aubergine 06-02-2018 10:08 AM

Hey Beckie and Lillie. How are you both?

I did dose back off thanks. ;)

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 10:11 AM

Morning all :-)

chinahorse 06-02-2018 10:16 AM

Hey emma :)

Feeling any better aubergine?

Cacoethes 06-02-2018 11:19 AM

Hello everyone!

Its very cold.
Had some very light snow earlier!

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 11:21 AM

It is freezing! No snow here though- just miserable grey

What you upto today Beckie?

Cacoethes 06-02-2018 11:34 AM

I'm at college.
Maths next. Uuggghhhhhh

How about you?

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 11:40 AM

Urgh, boooo :-(

I’m on a bus on my way into Windsor to meet friends. Can’t believe how much longer it takes on a bus versus a car!

Cacoethes 06-02-2018 12:03 PM

Buses do take forever!
Must be frustrating after being used to a car!

Hope you have a good time with your friends!

Aubergine 06-02-2018 12:27 PM

Boo to buses. I'm so grateful that I live where I do. Everywhere I need to go is walkable, pretty much. The city is an hour's bus ride away, but I don't like going there anyway!

Maths sucks, Beckie. It's what I'm worried about most with the OU stuff. Hope it's not too bad for you!

Cacoethes 06-02-2018 12:34 PM

I am so tired I could easily fall asleep!
An hour of maths left *cries*
And getting some delightful chest pain :eyeroll:

Aubergine 06-02-2018 12:36 PM

Do you think any of your class mates would notice if you had a quick nap?!

Another hour? Oh dear. :( What maths are you doing?

Chest pain doesn't sound good!

Cacoethes 06-02-2018 12:41 PM

Doing excel and bar charts on the computer.
Which I can actually do so its not too bad really.

It's getting quite bad.
Considering leaving for the day but would still be in pain at home so idk
Cant really afford to miss anything

Aubergine 06-02-2018 12:52 PM

Oh, it's good that it's something you feel able to do. :) Still not much fun though!

Have you spoken to your GP or anyone about your chest pain?

I'm still in bed. I think I gave my friend my cold, so she is unable to meet me for lunch today. I'm sorry she's poorly, but to be honest I'm quite glad to have a restful morning. Got another friend coming round for coffee at about 3:30pm, so that'll be nice. :)

Cacoethes 06-02-2018 12:58 PM

I was referred to cardio but they found nothing.
So who knows!
It's bad today though.

Its good to rest!
Especially if you've not been sleeping well.
Friend coming round sounds good :)

chinahorse 06-02-2018 01:06 PM

Oh no beckie :( hope you're starting to feel better now. And that maths has gone quickly.

Things always take forever on the bus emma. Usually because they take a stupid route.

Hope you have a good time with your mate this afternoon aubergine.

Aubergine 06-02-2018 01:12 PM

How odd. I'm glad that cardiology have checked you out. Are you particularly anxious today? If it's bad, could you get an appointment to see someone today? Sounds like it's worrying for you and must be very uncomfortable.

Thanks Lillie. :) How're you doing?

chinahorse 06-02-2018 01:18 PM

Aubergine is very wise beckie *nods*

I'm pants, both physically and mentally, but the show must go on.

Cacoethes 06-02-2018 01:21 PM

Think I may call 111.

Sorry you're not feeling great Lillie :(
Have you got time to do any self care type stuff?

Aubergine 06-02-2018 01:38 PM

I'm sorry things are so difficult, Lillie. You're right when you say that the show must go on, but I know it's not easy. Keep on keeping on, I guess.

111 sounds like a good idea, Beckie.

chinahorse 06-02-2018 01:42 PM

Thank you both. Yup I've painted my nails so they look pretty and will probably snuggle ul with a film this evening.

That's a good plan beckie.

Aubergine 06-02-2018 01:43 PM

Snuggling up with a film this evening sounds like a good plan. :) What colour are your nails?

chinahorse 06-02-2018 01:56 PM

They are like a metallic coppery gold colour.

Aubergine 06-02-2018 01:59 PM

Sounds lovely. You're always so well turned out! I'm quite in awe. :)

I really, really need a hair cut. I might phone and see if there are any appointments for next week.

chinahorse 06-02-2018 01:59 PM

Probably should also work out how I'm getting to my appointment and put my face on and have lunch. So much effort involved in all of them!

Aubergine 06-02-2018 02:05 PM

Oh effort! I don't ever put on a face. It's always naked. :wow: Got anything nice for lunch? I need to do a food shop.

Booked a hair cut for next Tuesday. It's been about six months since last time. Oops.

chinahorse 06-02-2018 02:27 PM

Nakey!! Ooo errrrr hahaha :-P

Just having bicuits and a pot noodle lol

You think that's bad?! It's been that long since I've been and mines dyed! When it wasn't I literally went once every few years.
Are you going for a new style or a trim and tidy up?

Aubergine 06-02-2018 02:35 PM

Nice! Biscuits and pot noodle sounds like good, easy food!

Haha! It wouldn't be so bad if my hair wasn't so short. It actually looks like if you turned me upside down you could use me as a mop.

chinahorse 06-02-2018 02:44 PM

Lol that's a funny image!

Mines stupidly long. It's at the point where if you cut 10cm off it no one would notice because it'd still be stupidly long.

Aubergine 06-02-2018 02:47 PM

My hair is an awful image right now. :wow:

Long hair is nice. I have really fine hair though, so it looks like rats' tails if I grow it. :plain:

Cheryl88 06-02-2018 03:10 PM

Hi everyone, how's life?

I see the topic is hair. I badly need a haircut and to get my eyebrows waxed, I haven't been for months. I'll get round to it but everything seems to take so much effort.

Cheryl88 06-02-2018 03:14 PM

I'm having the day off. I've just finished cleaning my kitchen and bathroom so now I'm drinking beer, listening to German music and thinking about what to make for dinner.

Aubergine 06-02-2018 03:15 PM

Hey Cheryl. How're you doing?

I know what you mean about effort! I've been meaning to dye my hair since New Year. Have the dye, don't have the motivation. Will do it on Tuesday after my hair cut.

Eyebrow waxing sounds painful! I've never even plucked mine, but they're really fine and fair, and they grow where they're supposed to, so I can get away with it.

Right, to the shower...

Cheryl88 06-02-2018 03:22 PM

Hi Aubergine.

I envy your eyebrows, mine make me look like Noel Gallagher, not quite a monobrow though. :D

Enjoy your shower. I'm going to potter about my house and see if I can get anything else done. Have a nice day!

Aubergine 06-02-2018 03:49 PM

I think bushy eyebrows are fashionable at the moment, aren't they? My sister does something with soap that I don't quite understand!

Shower was lovely. I did manage to pull the pull string off of my light switch in the bathroom though, so am going to have to see if Dad will come round after work and fix it, as the ceilings are really high and I don't have any ladders. :plain:

Sketchy 06-02-2018 05:47 PM

Hey all!

zombiehunter 06-02-2018 05:49 PM


Sketchy 06-02-2018 05:52 PM

ZOMBIE!!! :)

Aubergine 06-02-2018 06:05 PM

Hey Lorraine and Zombie. :) How are you two?

Sketchy 06-02-2018 06:08 PM

Hey Aubergine. How are you?

I’m ok thanks. I finally made it out the flat and did a few things needing done. Been to chemist, shop and post office. Now back home and on my rocking chair.

Aubergine 06-02-2018 06:20 PM

Well done. :) I'm really pleased that you managed to make it out and run your errands. Glad you're comfy in your rocking chair! Have you got your fire on?

My Dad can't come round tonight as he has archery, so I am going to have to leave my bathroom light on until tomorrow evening when he can come round. There is no way of turning it off! I'm such a doughnut!
