How's your sister getting on, Lorraine?


Just went to check on my neighbour. He's in his 80s and the snow outside his door hadn't been stepped in. Took him some long life milk; he said he was OK for everything else as he's stocked up, but had ran out of milk.

zombiehunter 02-03-2018 08:42 PM

WHAT!! :-o *whistles innocently*

Sketchy 02-03-2018 08:48 PM

That’s really kind of you Aubergine.

My sister should be finished work, so I’m waiting to hear if she gets home.

one_step_closer 02-03-2018 08:59 PM

Some of the videos people are making about the weather are so funny.

zombiehunter 02-03-2018 09:01 PM

did you see the one of the guy skiing down the street?? :-D

Sketchy 02-03-2018 09:21 PM

I saw the skiing guy. Amazing.

Good news. My sister got home safely and doesn’t have to stay overnight at the hospital. She had to get a taxi.

Aubergine 02-03-2018 09:32 PM

Skiing down the street?! Cool!

I'm glad your sister was able to get home, Lorraine. :)

Sketchy 02-03-2018 09:34 PM

Thanks Aubergine.

I’m watching ER. What’s everyone else doing?

Aubergine 02-03-2018 09:39 PM

I'm listening to music! I'm warm. It's glorious.

Sketchy 02-03-2018 09:40 PM

Glad you are warm. I’ve finally heated up. Nice and cosy by the fire.

Aubergine 02-03-2018 09:43 PM

Fire sounds great! I just have my radiator on, but it's lovely. This is me for the next 48 - 72 hours, I think!

Sketchy 02-03-2018 09:44 PM

Best to stay in with this weather.

Aubergine 02-03-2018 09:46 PM

You got any plans, or are you staying in too?

chinahorse 02-03-2018 09:50 PM

Heya guys, how're you all? Warm and cost I hope!

Sketchy 02-03-2018 09:52 PM

Tomorrow I’m babysitting Molly, so that will be fun.

Hey Lillie, hope you are warm too.

Aubergine 02-03-2018 09:54 PM

Hey Lillie! Are you warm?

I am warm! Heating right up!

Oh looking after Molly will be fun!

nonperson 02-03-2018 09:54 PM

I'm having a glamorous Friday night nosebleed!!

chinahorse 02-03-2018 09:56 PM

:) molly is a cutie!

Oh no NP. Do you get them often?

That'd good aubergine. Have ypou got the heated throw out?

I'm warm yep. And fed and washed.

nonperson 02-03-2018 10:00 PM

I used to, but not for a long long time!

So gross.

Aubergine 02-03-2018 10:04 PM

I've got the heating on, the heated throw out, and the electric underblanket heating up my bed!

I'm glad you're warm too. <3

Oh dear, NP!

nonperson 02-03-2018 10:06 PM

It's stopped now, I think.

Sorry for sharing...!

Sketchy 02-03-2018 10:06 PM

Poor Nonperson. Hope it stops soon.

nonperson 02-03-2018 10:08 PM

I think it's the central heating's fault.

chinahorse 02-03-2018 10:12 PM

Glad it's stopped NP!

Wow aubergine! So many heaty things!!

I'm starting to get chilly but tbf I've not got socks on or owt and I have wet hair.

Sketchy 02-03-2018 10:26 PM

Dry that hair Lillie and get some socks on!

chinahorse 02-03-2018 10:56 PM

But dryiny hair is souch effort! It's uber long and stupidly thick.

I'm now heating up in bed with a hot water bottle.

Sketchy 02-03-2018 11:04 PM

Hope you heat up soon Lillie.

Pomegranate 02-03-2018 11:29 PM

Lillie you should def dry your hair and not go to bed with it wet!

That’s really sweet of you Aubergine.

How’s everyone?

Sketchy 02-03-2018 11:46 PM

Hey Emma. I’m ok. How are you?

Pomegranate 03-03-2018 12:00 AM

Not too bad thanks. Got work tomorrow :-(. Having to get a lift in a 4x4 and take the cat with me lol. What are you doing tomorrow?

Aubergine 03-03-2018 12:05 AM

Hey again.

Still nice and warm, Lorrane? I'm a bit too hot now! Turned the heating off as will be getting into bed shortly.

How's it going, Emma? I hope that 4x4 journey goes well. Boo to work. Such is the life of those who work in healthcare, right? There were 4x4s ferrying clinical staff to and from the hospital today. They've made the physio gym into a dormitory for staff who can't get home tonight. I only live 1.5 miles from where I work, so was able to walk both ways. Took me an hour mind!

Sketchy 03-03-2018 12:12 AM

I hope your journey to work goes well. Be careful.

Tomorrow I’m catsitting Molly. :)

Yip Aubergine, I’m nice and warm. I’ve put on my thickest fluffiest onesie.

I think I’ll head to bed now. Goodnight everyone. Sleep well.

Aubergine 03-03-2018 12:13 AM

Night night, Lorraine. I hope you sleep well and have nice dreams about Molly!

not_so_insig 03-03-2018 12:15 AM

I am glad that I am not due my depot soon as there would be no way I could get to my cmht which is based in the hospital and the nurses might not be in or able to get to me. I am a bit worried about my tesco order but only the cat food, lemonade and cheese is essential so if necessary I can get my parents to get it.

Pomegranate 03-03-2018 01:05 AM

Night night Lorraine :-)

one_step_closer 03-03-2018 01:19 PM

Afternoon everyone. There was finally milk in one of my local shops!!! How are you all today?

Cpt_Stunning 03-03-2018 01:29 PM

I got milk from Morrison's, + other stuff too, I'm OK, still a bit cold, going to nap this afternoon, then have dinner.

one_step_closer 03-03-2018 01:31 PM

Are you within walking distance of Morrisons? I hope you warm up soon and have a good nap and enjoy your dinner. Do you know what you're going to have for dinner?

Cpt_Stunning 03-03-2018 01:33 PM

Yes, about 5 mins walk from Morrison's, probably curry for dinner, are you doing OK?

Sketchy 03-03-2018 01:45 PM

Hey everyone.

I’m babysitting a very hyper Molly and watching doctor who.

Aubergine 03-03-2018 01:50 PM

Hey Lorraine! Aww hyper Molly sounds great! My friends have a cat and says there is such a thing as "kitty witching hour" when they go a little mad. :P

Cpt_Stunning 03-03-2018 01:51 PM

Possibly my earliest memory ever was watching Dr. Who when I was 3-years-old, 1977.

I, well not I, my parents had several cats over the decades, one was a real character, he died in 2005, but I still have dreams that he's still alive.

Cpt_Stunning 03-03-2018 01:53 PM

I don't watch Dr. Who or James Bond movies, never going to be like it used to be.

Aubergine 03-03-2018 01:55 PM

Hey Chris! How's it going?

I had a dream about the cat I'm getting last night! I dreampt that I'd brought her home before I'd got the place ready for her and she had nowhere cosy to hide. :(

Sketchy 03-03-2018 01:56 PM

That’s very true Aubergine. We call it Molly’s mad moments.

Hey Chris. Is that the cat in your avatar?

Cpt_Stunning 03-03-2018 01:58 PM

I'm OK thanks, worry too much, but keeping it under control.

Cpt_Stunning 03-03-2018 02:01 PM

No, that is Monty, a British Blue cat, he was cute.

I grew up with Burmese cats, one in particular lived for 15 years, of all the cats I've known, he was my favourite, even though Monty was cute.

They say you shouldn't have favourite pets.

nonperson 03-03-2018 02:03 PM

The snow is now just melty mush here now. =(

Which is good really, it just looks sad outside when it's halfway gone.

Cpt_Stunning 03-03-2018 02:06 PM

Why sad?

nonperson 03-03-2018 02:08 PM

Because it's pretty outside when everything is all white... and now it's patchy... When everything is all green and brown and normal again I'll have forgotten all about the snow but as it's halfway gone it's just a sad transition to watch!
