Not sure about that. =P

And yes far too late to be doing stuff but I always do shopping late and have been at work/dog sitting during the day...

Glad you're reasonably ok. Positive thinking, hopefully it lasts. =)

chinahorse 22-09-2018 07:37 PM

Busy busy np!

And I wasn't allowed a messy room either really.

Too early for bed?

zombiehunter 22-09-2018 07:38 PM

hi oriental equine

Cacoethes 22-09-2018 07:39 PM

I don't remember having a particularly messy room as a child!

It is too late to do stuff!

Any time can be bed time!

one_step_closer 22-09-2018 07:40 PM

I hope the shop is quiet at least NP.

Lillie, if you're tired and think you can sleep then I guess it's not too early for bed? But if you go to bed now will you wake up in the early hours of the morning or something?

chinahorse 22-09-2018 07:44 PM

I'm always tired! It's a perpetual state of being as an adult.

nonperson 22-09-2018 07:44 PM

It's dark which means it's night so it's perfectly acceptable to go to bed.

Cacoethes 22-09-2018 07:45 PM

I've been tired lately too.
Not been sleeping well for some reason!

chinahorse 22-09-2018 07:51 PM

I may have to adopt that reasoning NP!

Cacoethes 22-09-2018 08:02 PM

It is good reasoning!

nonperson 22-09-2018 08:04 PM

Haha, yes. I think the darkness makes me more tired too...

Cacoethes 22-09-2018 08:19 PM

I do like that its colder though!

nonperson 22-09-2018 10:19 PM

Yes colder is much nicer. Autumn has been a long time coming.

I am finally back after food shopping. Bought lots of stuff for making shortbread for next Friday.

one_step_closer 23-09-2018 11:26 AM

Morning everyone.

chinahorse 23-09-2018 12:00 PM

I just had to remove a woodlouse from my flat. I am traumatised.

Also morning.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 12:21 PM

Morning guys

I get woodlice in my bath a lot.
I have no clue how they get in there

chinahorse 23-09-2018 12:38 PM

That's a strange place to get them!

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 12:44 PM

It is!
I really don't know how they get in there
Maybe the plug?

chinahorse 23-09-2018 01:04 PM

Dunno. Very odd!

What're you up to today?

I've just hung up wet laundry and put away the clean stuffand half cleaned the bathroom. Now to make myself look less dead and go to town.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 01:09 PM

I need to go to the shop but I don't want to get out from under my blanket!

Well done for getting those things done!

chinahorse 23-09-2018 01:14 PM

Ta. And I feel you. And it's sunny here and my hair is a mess and somewhat greasy at a day and a half and just cba.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 01:18 PM

Its quite grey here.
And only 9 apparently!

Have you got any dry shampoo?
Its a lifesaver

chinahorse 23-09-2018 01:20 PM

That's chilly!

I do but I have too much hair to wash it every bloody day.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 01:24 PM

Right. I'm going to get off my arse and go to the shops

Ugh that's a pain

not_so_insig 23-09-2018 02:31 PM

It's raining here. It's just absolutely chucked it down but thankfully I am indoors. I am in a garden centre today and they are giving away free glass of prosecco so I had some.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 02:52 PM

Its sunny here now!

That sounds good Dawn

one_step_closer 23-09-2018 03:48 PM

It's sunny and sort of cold then sort of warm here.

Hope you've all accomplished your tasks and are able to have some time to relax too.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 03:52 PM

I am currently relaxing!
Nothing else to do today

How are you Lindsay?

one_step_closer 23-09-2018 04:06 PM

Yay! Are you ok at keeping yourself occupied though?

I'm alright. Did the big hoover but it exhausted me quite quickly so I didn't do as good a job of it as I needed to.

Craving a biscuit or some cake.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 04:10 PM

Yeah it's been quite a busy week so I'm glad of the rest!

Well done for doing it!

Mmm cake
Do you have any?

chinahorse 23-09-2018 05:15 PM

Well done! Hoovering can be exhausting! You deserve a treat now definitely.

I'm hungry and knackered.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 05:20 PM

Hey Lillie!
Have you got any easy food?

chinahorse 23-09-2018 05:25 PM

Yeah I probably do have something I'll bung in the oven once I cba to move.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 05:36 PM

Thats good.
I feel you about the moving thing

chinahorse 23-09-2018 05:57 PM

I moved from the armchair to the sofa via the kitchen side for chocolate. Oops

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 06:04 PM


I've just put pizza in the oven because cba to cook
The Lego movie has just started! :-D

chinahorse 23-09-2018 06:08 PM

Pizza! Nomnom. Enjoy the film :)

I've put chips and veggie sausages in the oven. I hope I can stay awake long enough for it to cook and eat it.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 06:16 PM

Thanks :)

Hope you manage to eat it!
Dont fall asleep and let it burn!
I've done that before.

one_step_closer 23-09-2018 06:19 PM

I had a Kit Kat but it didn't seem biscuity or cakey enough.

Putting things in the oven IS cooking.

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 06:22 PM

Thats a shame Lindsay!

Yes i suppose it is!

Aubergine 23-09-2018 07:30 PM


Cacoethes 23-09-2018 07:31 PM

Hey Aubergine!
How are you?

Aubergine 23-09-2018 07:36 PM

I'm alright. Kind of. Difficult week. Not awful, just challenging and motivation is next to nothing. Though I did go out with a friend for a couple of hours yesterday. Need to cook something. Thinking pesto pasta. Can't be bothered with anything else. Might stick some tinned vegetables in it.

How are you?

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 07:45 PM

That's good that you managed to get out
Hopefully this week will be better :)

I am a big fan of pesto pasta!

I'm ok.
Very tired for some reason.
Bet I still won't sleep though!

not_so_insig 23-09-2018 08:04 PM

I bought a christmas present today. A glass that has "it's gin oclock" on it and a bottle of strawberry and rhubarb gin.

Aubergine 23-09-2018 08:07 PM

Thanks Beckie. Pesto pasta is a go to dish. Shove the pasta in the saucepan, cover it with boiling water, wait, drain and add the pesto. Tadaa!

Pasta is in the pan, simmering. Not long and I'll have something to eat that isn't cereal.

Oh it's so annoying when you're tired but can't sleep! Boo to that. Here's hoping you can catch up a bit tonight. :)

Aubergine 23-09-2018 08:07 PM

Hey Dawn! That sounds really lovely. :)

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 08:16 PM

Yep pesto pasta is so easy!

I've got to catch up at some point!
Luckily I'm not very busy this week

not_so_insig 23-09-2018 08:22 PM

Thanks Ducky. I didn't specifically go for a christmas present just saw it and my mum said that it would make a good present for my friend. There was a display of gins and some random woman asked us if we knew anything about gin. Unfortunately my mum explained that we didnt know anything and that it was a present. :-(

Cacoethes 23-09-2018 09:57 PM

Ugh I'm feeling tired still but I've gone from really tired to slightly more awake but still tired enough to want to sleep but too awake to actually sleep
This is frustrating!
