His name is Patch and he is three years old. :) One day, I will own a cat like Patch! For now, I will have to just look at pictures and keep my finger crossed for when I eventually ask my landlord. <3

Beautiful cat :)

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:31 PM

I hope you get your cat. They are such precious animals. I love Molly so much.

This is fluffy!

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:34 PM

I like Fluffy. I love a black cat. They are the hardest to adopt, which is sad because cats like Molly have so much love to give.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 06:44 PM

Oh, I didn't realise that black cats are the hardest to adopt. Do you know why? I don't mind what colour a cat is. Just want to give one a home.

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:51 PM

Some people are superstitious about them and believe they are bad luck. Some think they don’t look good in selfies. Not true, Molly is good luck and takes a beautiful photo.

wildly insane 05-02-2018 06:52 PM

you wont believe it but the perception is that they don't photograph as well and are therefore not popular for instagram etc.

wildly insane 05-02-2018 06:52 PM

mine photograph beautifully :)

Sketchy 05-02-2018 06:54 PM

How many cats do you have?

one_step_closer 05-02-2018 07:32 PM

Cats make great selfie partners.

Buttons. 05-02-2018 07:34 PM

Selfies is a truly pathetic reason not to adopt a certain colour of cat -_-

Buttons. 05-02-2018 07:39 PM

I suspect cats are sometimes the brighter I must confess although I am a dog person-my dog is currently quite literally chasing her own tail 0.o

one_step_closer 05-02-2018 07:43 PM

Oh to be so easily amused.

one_step_closer 05-02-2018 07:43 PM

I might get myself a tail to chase.

Buttons. 05-02-2018 07:46 PM

I know right!

Maybe ask Hagrid to furnish you with a tail.

one_step_closer 05-02-2018 07:49 PM

I'm not sure if that is wise, he may get it seriously wrong.

Buttons. 05-02-2018 07:53 PM

Fair point.

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 08:05 PM

Hey guys im back home.

How are we all?

Aubergine 05-02-2018 08:07 PM

They don't look good in selfies? What a funny reason to not adopt a cat. I don't really believe in good or bad luck, so a black cat could live with me no problem.


Nice to see you, Lindsay!

Aubergine 05-02-2018 08:08 PM

Beckie! How was your afternoon?

Buttons. 05-02-2018 08:08 PM

Hey Beckie, how are you?

I'm tired but good :)

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 08:24 PM

Was ok thanks!
I am also tired!

Glad you are good Buttons! :)

Eska 05-02-2018 08:34 PM

Buttons, I'm glad you're good :)

Beckie, can you maybe get an early night?

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 08:35 PM

Will definitely be getting an early Night!

How are you eska?

Eska 05-02-2018 08:40 PM

I'm good :) I just went to the gym!

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 08:46 PM

Oooo very good!!

one_step_closer 05-02-2018 08:48 PM

I hear a lot of goodness in this thread! Good stuff!

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 08:57 PM

Hey Lindsay!!

Aubergine 05-02-2018 09:57 PM

Heya.

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 10:07 PM

Hey Aubergine!

Im off to bed now.
Night night all!

Aubergine 05-02-2018 10:29 PM

Night Beckie! Hope you sleep well.

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 11:41 PM

Hey all :-)

Night Beckie

Aubergine 05-02-2018 11:55 PM

Hey Emma. How are you?

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 11:58 PM

Came home early but cat snuggles are helping. Watching law and order svu. How was your branch group?

Aubergine 06-02-2018 12:02 AM

I'm glad that cat snuggles are helping. :) Do you have plans for tomorrow?


Branch group was good. My friends are great and the hosts' house is warm. Now I am tired and cold! Got the electric blanket on though, so will be getting in bed soon. Just need to take meds etc.

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 12:16 AM

Sounds nice :-)

I’m supposed to be meeting friends in windsor to look at volunteering stuff for one of them and have coffee. Going to see how I feel in the morning though.

What about you?

Aubergine 06-02-2018 12:28 AM

Seeing how you feel is a good plan. If you're not feeling great, could you call your CC? It might help to talk to someone, and you really wouldn't be bothering her. :)


I'm going for lunch with a friend to talk about going on retreat. I think Mum is coming at some point in the evening. My flat is so stupidly cold. My hands are icy where they're sticking out of my jumper. Oh how lovely would central heating be?!

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 12:40 AM

I know it shouldn’t please me that you have no central heating but I don’t either! And everyone acts like I’m odd for not getting it sorted. Everyone seems to have it these days! It is cold tonight though. Got my electric heater next to me.

Sounds like you’ll be nice and busy tomorrow then :-).

Aubergine 06-02-2018 12:47 AM

I worry that my landlord would put my rent up if she put in central heating! I've got wall mounted panel heaters. They throw out a lot of heat, but are just really expensive. Don't have instant hot water either. Either have to boil the kettle or heat the whole tank up using the immersion. Thankfully my shower is electric! I don't think people think I'm odd though; they just don't come round very often in the Winter!


Yeah, should be. :)

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 12:50 AM

Ah ok. I don’t have panel heaters either lol. But I do have hot water.

What time are you going out tomorrow? Have you moved from your bed yet? Would a time limit help? Like give yourself until midnight?

Aubergine 06-02-2018 12:58 AM

Hot water is good. :) I keep meaning to put the immersion on for an hour a day so I always have hot water for washing up and stuff, but I either forget to turn it on, or I turn it on and forget to turn it off until three days later... :wow: Not so long back the thermostat on the tank broke, and steam was coming up through the floor of the flat above me because I'd just left the thing switched on. I didn't realise because I was living in my bedroom at the time. Then the letting agent phoned and said someone had been knocking on the door because there was something rather amiss. :whistling:


I'm not sure. I can't remember. I'll message my friend in the morning to check. I've not moved yet and I really need to. Could do with meds first.

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 01:10 AM

Why don’t you give yourself until 12.30 and then take them and post here when you’ve done so? I can kick you if it helps?

Aubergine 06-02-2018 01:13 AM

OK. Thanks. :)


What are you up to? Sleep soon?

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 01:32 AM

*kicks* how’s movement going?

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 01:34 AM

Just had a snack. One of my friends I was out with earlier wants to call me to check in when she gets home in 15mins or so; just waiting for that and then I’ll go to bed hopefully.

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 01:53 AM

*kicks again*

Aubergine 06-02-2018 01:53 AM

Snack sounds good. What did you have? I'm glad your friend is calling. Sounds like you have some good eggs in your life. I hope you get some decent sleep once you've spoken to her.


I took the medication and wriggled into my pyjamas. Now I just have to turn the light off and then get into bed.

Aubergine 06-02-2018 01:54 AM

You're quite the taskmaster!

Pomegranate 06-02-2018 02:02 AM

Lol, not sure if that’s a compliment or not! Well done for taking meds and getting into pjs.

Friend not called yet but have gotten into bed and turned off main light. Tv still on though.

What’s your deadline for turning off lights and getting into bed?
