True Beckie.

What're you watching NP?

nonperson 31-08-2018 09:04 PM

The Flash.

Cacoethes 31-08-2018 09:14 PM

Im going to go to bed when this movie finishes

not_so_insig 31-08-2018 10:56 PM

Hello all!

Aubergine 01-09-2018 06:23 AM


Sofa came and is made. It's much bigger than it looks (and was expecting!) It's amazing though! Like, a sofa I never thought I'd never be able to own because it's so squishy and comfy and awesome!

I was glad to come back into the thread to see you all enjoying my sofa too! :P

How's this morning for everyone?

Completed sofa in all its glory! :P

chinahorse 01-09-2018 09:31 AM

Looks super comfy aubergine and impressive that you built it!

Hope you're ok lovey as you were up very early?

I have done some more cleaning in a very slow way. Laundry is about done which leaves the hoovering and the shower. I have so much to do :( and feel very blah.

Aubergine 01-09-2018 09:44 AM

Oh Lillie. :( I wish I lived closer; I would help you to clean. Slow is OK. I know it can feel ovewhelming when there's so much to do. *hug* What can we do to help? Would you like to see a picture of Alec stealing MY spot on the sofa?!

Thank you. <3 I'm a bit surprised that I managed it to be honest. :P

I'm OK, yeah. Kind of. I woke up really early, then fell back to sleep and had horrible dreams that I couldn't get myself out out even when I eventually realised that they were dreams, because I couldn't move or wake myself up. So I'm just trying to calm down from that.

I'm alright though. Going to make some breakfast and get a drink. I've not got plan for the day. I can't go to the pool yet because it's "family swim" from 10am - 2pm, or I'd do that. Have a friend coming at about 2pm, which will be nice. We are going to go for a walk in the park, weather permitting. :)

Buttons. 01-09-2018 09:50 AM

I get the dream thing Aubergine, so sorry you experienced that. Sounds like will be good with your friend this afternoon though :) Might be going park myself later with dog. Depends on what random sw they've sent for today.

chinahorse 01-09-2018 09:54 AM

I think seeing the handsome kitty would help me recover enough to do some filing :)

(It's just frustrating. I am not this person. I am not this lazy and slow. Even of late I can clean the whole house in an hour in one go. And get most of my jobs done in a day.

Oh love that sounds horrid. Glad you're looking after yourself.

How annoying about the pool! (Definitely didn't auto correct to poo- *shifty eyes*)
If the weather turns maybe you could go for a coffee?

chinahorse 01-09-2018 09:55 AM

Oh buttons. I want to come up and shout at your sw agency! I do hope you manage to get out.

Aubergine 01-09-2018 10:09 AM

Hey Buttons! Thank you. I'm sorry that you get it too. I really, really hope that you get to go out to the park. Your SW agency sound terrible. How is doggy?OK I hope. (Well, as OK as dogs can be. :P)

Oh Lillie. You are probably the least lazy person that I know! I can understand it being frustrating though if you're used to being able to do things more quickly. *squish*

Haha! No, definitely the pool. :P Might go after I've seen my friend, as it's open until 7pm and no children after 2pm! :D If the weather is bad we'll probably stay at mine and have a coffee. Or we might drive somewhere, as she has a car.

Alec the King in my spot:

chinahorse 01-09-2018 10:14 AM

Sounds like a good plan aubergine :)

Alec melts my heart <3 I had some kitty time with upstairs athena yesterday. She invited herself in to my flat lol but she only sort of likes me. I can't wait to get my own.

Aubergine 01-09-2018 10:28 AM

Sort of likes you? Hehe! I'm excited for you for when you get your own - it's going to be great. You've got to have been there a year, haven't you? How much longer do you have to go?

chinahorse 01-09-2018 10:35 AM

She likes me on her terms but grumps at me because I often have to pick her up and remove her from my flat when I need to leave. She also wasn't much impressed by the cheese I tried to feed her.

And yep, mid December.

nonperson 01-09-2018 11:36 AM

A cat that doesn't like cheese?!

Aubergine 01-09-2018 11:52 AM

Hehe Lillie! You spoil the cat! My cat does not get cheese. :P

He had a TINY bit of milk this morning, mainly because it was the only wat to stop him from trying to drink the milk in my cereal bowl. Didn't want to upset his tummy (for his sake and mine!)

How are you, Person?

nonperson 01-09-2018 12:15 PM

My cat loves cheese. He only has it rarely and not loads, just like one little grating because Siamese are meant to be particularly lactose intolerant.

And milk and cream and mayonnaise and bacon grease.

I'm alright. Apart from I've come back downstairs and there seem to be flies everywhere!?

Aubergine 01-09-2018 12:25 PM

Aww. :) I love your cat. He's such a cutie!

Alec has never had any of those things! He has had milk. Haha. I'm such a meanie.

Flies? Oh no! How do they always seem to get in, but never seem to be able to get out? I do not understand.

I need to dismantle my old sofa. Doom.

nonperson 01-09-2018 12:32 PM

He doesn't get given all those other things - he can just be a really sneaky scrounge when he wants to be!

Need the cat to catch the flies but he's not around!

Doom indeed, but it's easier to dismantle than.. mantle(?) ! :confused:

Aubergine 01-09-2018 12:35 PM


Yes, I guess deconstructing is easier than... constructing?! :) Hehe!

My friend is definitely coming round at 2pm. We're going to drive to a pretty park and sit and drink from a flask of tea. :) <3

What are you up to? Other than trying to catch the flies. :P

nonperson 01-09-2018 12:40 PM

Er, yes those are much better words. =P

Sounds nice! I'm also seeing my friend this afternoon for a walk in the park.

Right now I am munching on rocky road clusters and waiting for some laundry to finish.

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 01:19 PM

Afternoon all. I am watching burghley cross country (big horse riding competition) on the telly. I got my first post crossing postcard.

nonperson 01-09-2018 01:20 PM

Hi Dawn. That's cool about the postcard! Where/who did it come from?

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 01:24 PM

It came from Finland. It has a cat on the front.

nonperson 01-09-2018 01:29 PM

Nice. Did they know you like cats?

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 01:35 PM

Well I put that I like animals and interested in history. The stamp has a dog on it.

nonperson 01-09-2018 01:42 PM

That's very thoughtful of them. =)

Aubergine 01-09-2018 01:48 PM

That's cool, Dawn!

My friend has been sending me post cards with Dad's Army stamps on. :) She sent one to me when I was in hospital with a "Don't Panic" stamp on it, with a note to say sorry but she hadn't realised what the stamp said until she'd stuck it on. :P

Oh bum. Laundry. I've left some in overnight. Oops...

Oooo rocky road! Walk around the park sounds lovely. :) Has your laundry finished now? Other than bedding, I put pretty much everything on a 30 minute wash. :P

chinahorse 01-09-2018 01:53 PM

Aubergine a rinse and spin with some fabric conditioner in it will freshen it up!

Hope you both enjoy your walks in the park Np and aubergine.

I am clean and dressed. The house is also fully clean. I am however shattered now and having a rest before going to post my huge parcel.

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 02:03 PM

I opened my mystery parcel last night. Is anyone interested in what's in it?

nonperson 01-09-2018 02:09 PM

I haven't seen Dad's Army for ages! "Don't tell 'im, Pike!" :laugh:

I'm doing bedding and towels today and the first load was a disaster because as usual I overloaded the machine and have had to separate it out and do two extra spin cycles. Will I ever learn?

My work stuff gets absolutely filthy so a 30 min wash wouldn't do anything for my normal clothing wash!

Towels have just finished so I'll go hang them up and then go shower so I'm clean for going out.

It's really sunny out so it's probably going to be really busy. =/

nonperson 01-09-2018 02:10 PM

And yes, reveal what was in the mystery parcel!

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 02:13 PM

There was several postcards, chocolates, a coaster and 2 colouring books. Plus a China cat which has pride of place on my bookcase next to 2 glass cats in my parcel.

nonperson 01-09-2018 02:14 PM

I thought you were going to say it was something really boring. That's an amazing mystery parcel. Do you know who it was from or is that still a mystery?

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 02:20 PM

Yes I know who the parcel is from. It was the postcard from postcrossing I don't know who it's from.

nonperson 01-09-2018 02:23 PM

Ah that's good. Would be strange to receive all that and not know.

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 02:30 PM

I also received a pen in the parcel.

I once received a vase of flowers once when I was IP. Didn't know who it was from until several weeks later.

Cacoethes 01-09-2018 03:15 PM

Hey guys
I got up at 12 and then went for a nap shortly after
Just woken up :ermm:

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 03:19 PM

Oops Beckie! You must have been tired.

Cacoethes 01-09-2018 03:30 PM

I was very tired!
I feel awake now though

not_so_insig 01-09-2018 04:30 PM

I have some bad news for you folks. There's no Casualty on next week. Last night of the Proms instead. But HP is on so it's not all bad.

Buttons. 01-09-2018 04:43 PM

Hey all :) I'm feeling better And just finishing off a super hero film marathon.

I LOVE THAT LINE. On a few occasions I've used it and the person wth me has looked at me like I'm an alien.

Cacoethes 01-09-2018 04:57 PM

Buttons. 01-09-2018 05:06 PM

Cacoethes 01-09-2018 05:29 PM

What will we watch instead!?

Aubergine 01-09-2018 05:40 PM

Casualty's rubbish anyway. :P Listen to music instead! :D

Cacoethes 01-09-2018 05:41 PM

How very dare you!!!
Get out!

Aubergine 01-09-2018 05:42 PM

YOU get out. You're the one that watches terrible TV. :P

Cacoethes 01-09-2018 05:44 PM
