Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:57 PM

No harm at all! I was convinced my landlord was going to say no and she said yes! They may surprise you. :)

Eska 18-03-2018 07:58 PM

Definitely no harm in asking, Beckie!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:00 PM

I'll have to get up the courage to call them at some point!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 08:07 PM


I haven't washed my work uniform. I forgot it was in my laundry basket. Someone come do my laundry for me? :(

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:10 PM

Oh no!
I don't mind doing laundry, I'll do it! :p

Aubergine 18-03-2018 08:12 PM

Thanks! *passes over work top, cardigan and trousers* :D

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:13 PM


Aubergine 18-03-2018 08:25 PM

Thanks! :D

What to do tomorrow morning? I might have a lie in! No work until 2pm. :)

Eska 18-03-2018 08:27 PM

I’m pondering the same thing - I don’t start til 12. I might head in a bit earlier though to allow for the trains potentially being messed up by snow.

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:27 PM

Lie in is a good idea!!

My money on the gas card has run out.
Knew I'd forgotten something!
At least its almost bed time anyway and I don't have the heating on at night.
And it's pretty warm from being on all day anyway

Aubergine 18-03-2018 08:30 PM

That's a good idea, Eska. Hopefully they'll be OK though.

Ooops Beckie! I'm glad you've got the place pretty warm anyway. Can you put some on tomorrow? I have a smart meter so top up online. I do not miss running out of electricity!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:32 PM

Yep I'll put some on tomorrow
A smart meter would be soooo handy!

Eska 18-03-2018 08:33 PM

Beckie I’m glad you’re warm enough for the time being!

I really hope the trains are ok. I need to make it in to be trained on how to open up, otherwise I won’t know what to do on Thursday!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:34 PM

Fingers crossed they're ok eska!!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 08:35 PM

Does your energy company do smart meters? Do you think you would be allowed to get them put in? I had them done for free. :)

Will keep my fingers crossed, Eska!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:37 PM

I'm not sure
They probably do
Something else to ask the letting agent!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 08:39 PM

You can do it, Beckie! :) I did everything pretty much as soon as I moved in. Anything to make my life as easy as possible. :P

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:40 PM

It would definitely make life easier!!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 08:44 PM


I might get into bed in a minute. :)

Anyone up to anything?

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:45 PM

Bed is good
I took my meds early tonight so hopefully I'll be asleep early!
6:30 start tomorrow :(

Aubergine 18-03-2018 08:47 PM

I hope you get a good night's sleep. :) 6:30am is far to early! There should only be one 6:30 in a day, and that's pm. :P

Eska 18-03-2018 08:48 PM

Ouch, Beckie, that’s early! I hope you get a really good night’s sleep.

Aubergine, bed sounds like a nice idea!

I’m just browsing tumblr. I did have the tv on in the background but it’s gone weird again.

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 08:49 PM

Too right Aubergine!

Ugh stupid tv!

Im half watching The mummy 2
Cant concentrate on just one thing atm

Eska 18-03-2018 08:58 PM

I want to drink a smoothie but I can’t open the bottle :(

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 09:00 PM

Oh no!
What kind of bottle is it?

Eska 18-03-2018 09:13 PM

Just a normal plastic bottle. It’s ok, I’ve got into it now!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 09:18 PM

Glad you got into it! :) What kind of smoothie is it?

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 09:19 PM

I once had a jar of salsa in my cupboard for aaggess and I kept trying to open it but I just couldn't!
And I don't have anyone to ask so I eventually had to throw it away

Eska 18-03-2018 09:19 PM

Apple, pineapple and kiwi. It’s very green!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 09:21 PM

I have a jar of honey like that in my cupboard, Beckie!

Ooo yum!

not_so_insig 18-03-2018 09:24 PM

I have a jar opening device which makes opening jars easy. Though saying that I couldn't open a fray bentos pie once and had to throw it away because I managed to make a hole but not any further.

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 09:24 PM

Sounds yummy!

Haha aubergine!
Its so frustrating!

Im going to head off to bed and hope I sleep soon
I know it's super early but meh.
I am tired!
Night night all!

not_so_insig 18-03-2018 09:25 PM

Good night Beckie.

Eska 18-03-2018 09:25 PM

Goodnight Beckie, sleep well.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 09:26 PM

Night Beckie. I hope you sleep well. :)

Sketchy 18-03-2018 10:27 PM

Hey all. How is everyone?

Eska 18-03-2018 10:29 PM

Hi Lorraine :) I’ve been better but I’m managing. Having a quiet evening in. How about you?

Aubergine 18-03-2018 10:30 PM

Hey Lorraine. How's it going?

Sketchy 18-03-2018 10:37 PM

Glad you are managing Eska. I hope things get better for you.

Hey Aubergine. How are you?

I’m ok thanks. Spent the day with Molly. We were waiting until she’s old enough to be dressed, but we think she’s already in heat. She’s been meoawing so loudly, which isn’t like her. Poor thing. I gave her lots of attention and treats. We’re getting her dressed soon.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 10:42 PM

I'm good thanks.

Oh, spending the day with Molly sounds great! Is getting a cat dressed like getting her spayed? I've not heard of that before.

I'll be getting Alec neutered when he's old enough. :)

Sketchy 18-03-2018 10:46 PM

Yes, that’s what I meant. We feel bad, but it’s for her own good. Poor Molly.

Good idea getting Alec neutered when he’s old enough.

not_so_insig 18-03-2018 10:48 PM

It must be a Scottish thing because I have heard many sayings but not that one. It's probably best to get her microchipped too even if she's indoors because if she gets out she won't be able to find her way home.

Eska 18-03-2018 10:48 PM

Poor Molly. I’m glad you got to spend the day with her.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 10:49 PM

I know what you mean about feeling bad, but it really is for her own good. Can prevent lots of health problems and things. When will she be old enough? I know you can get boys neutered from four months most of the time. :)

I'll be getting Alec neutered too. :) It'll happen as part of a new kitten pack I'm getting from my local vet. :)

not_so_insig 18-03-2018 10:51 PM

4 months for females and 6 months for males is what most vets say.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 11:02 PM

Oh. Cat's Protection said 4 months for Alec. Maybe it is 6! I'll have to ask the vet. :)

Sketchy 18-03-2018 11:03 PM

She’ll be old enough now, so we are arranging it soon. Yip, we are getting her micro chipped too.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 11:06 PM

Microchipping is a must, I think. I'd hate it if I had an escapee and someone thought he was homeless. :(

Sketchy 18-03-2018 11:07 PM

I’m looking after Molly again on Tuesday. I have plenty of dreamies waiting for her.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 11:09 PM

Not long until Tuesday! What flavour Dreamies does she like?
