Well it's actually for a park-wide garden competition but they check every garden just to make sure everything's in order. They found rusted old cars in one person's garden one year...!

chinahorse 26-05-2018 09:16 PM

They must have been there a while to get rusty! !

We have thunder and lightening.

nonperson 26-05-2018 09:18 PM

I don't think anyone knew they were actually there until they came to clear the garden when the person moved out. =P Hence regular garden checks, hehe.

Do you like thunder and lightning? I think we're expected some tomorrow.

chinahorse 26-05-2018 09:21 PM

Ahhhh I get ya!

Don't mind it. And if it clears how horribly muggy it is then I'm all for it.

nonperson 26-05-2018 09:23 PM

Didn't think it'd be muggy with all that fresh sea air you have. =P

Hope it clears though, mugginess really is horrible.

chinahorse 26-05-2018 09:29 PM

It doesn't get muggy that often but it was today.

nonperson 26-05-2018 09:45 PM

According to BBC weather we're going to having rain and thunder very soon too.

In fact, it looks like a combination of thunder, rain and a bit of sun inbetween that for most of this weekend and next week. o.o

chinahorse 26-05-2018 10:03 PM

That sucks. Why couldn't it have been nice now instead of when I was at work?!

It hasn't rained since mid afternoon so it's still muggy and sticky.

nonperson 26-05-2018 10:09 PM

I know, that's always the way, isn't it! I suppose we've had nice bank holiday weather so far this year so it was bound to revert to normal at some point.

I always want rain in the week, makes my job an awful lot easier. =P

What're you up to this evening?

nonperson 27-05-2018 12:00 AM

Some pretty amazing lightning going on here right now. It's lighting up everything like daylight.

Aubergine 27-05-2018 05:10 AM

I just woke up, fully clothed with the curtains open. Oops!

chinahorse 27-05-2018 08:39 AM

Haha aubergine! Least you got some sleep though.

Np that sounds impressive!!

I'm not sure if we had more storms (I sleep like the dead) but it's rained overnight and feel much fresher. :)

chinahorse 27-05-2018 11:00 AM

I should get showered and dressed but so much cba. My hair is interesting so I need to do that also. Days like today I wish I was bald.

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:03 AM

Oh dear, Lillie! Haha!

I am on a traaaaiiiiiiin. :)

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:06 AM

On a train to wheeeeere? =o

I'm awake and breakfasted and need to start house cleaning. =(

Eska 27-05-2018 11:10 AM

Hi everyone :)

Thought I had work today but turned up and one of my colleagues was there to cover my shift so I have a free day! I can watch the F1 and have dinner with my housemates :)

Eska 27-05-2018 11:10 AM

I'm waiting for a train back home...

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:11 AM

Further south! :D

Well done for being up and breakfasted! House cleaning is a pain. Think of how nice it'll be when you've done it though. :)

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:12 AM

Hey Eska! Sounds like a great free day!

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:14 AM

Hi Eska. That's kind of annoying and nice at the same time! Glad you can have a nice day now though.. =P

I have a person and a little person coming over this afternoon so need to tidy and make the place baby-proof because all sorts of chaos happened last time!

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:16 AM

That sounds nice, Person. :) baby proofing is a good idea!

Eska 27-05-2018 11:18 AM

NP that sounds like an interesting challenge! Out house would be an absolute nightmare to babyproof so it's lucky we don't know any. The most we have to worry about is the occasional dog visiting!

Aubergine I hope you have fun on your travels!

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:20 AM

I just need to move things out of reach so it'll force me to tidy or at least move the mess somewhere else.

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:22 AM

Good plan! Will stop any mischief! How old is baby now?

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:27 AM

16 months, not quite walking unaided but she can pull herself up and hold on to things and then move around by herself. And it's all about investigating everything in reach!

chinahorse 27-05-2018 11:40 AM

:/ small humans scare me!!

Annoying that you went but good you get a day to yourself eska :)

Am showered. Now trying to psyche myself up to blow dry my hair.

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:42 AM

They scare me too, but I've gotten to know this particular one quite well so it's ok.

You can do it!

I'm going to start cleaning at 12, I've decided. 15 minutes more lazy time.

Eska 27-05-2018 11:47 AM

My train arrived and I'm on my way home.

I'm wary of small humans too but agree it's easier when it's one you know.

Sounds like a good plan np :)

*sends Lillie hair-drying energy*

Aubergine 27-05-2018 11:48 AM

Missed my connecting train because I got in a fluster and went to the wrong platform. :(

nonperson 27-05-2018 11:53 AM

How long until you get home, Eska?

Oh dear, Aubergine. Have you got long to wait until the next one?

Eska 27-05-2018 12:02 PM

I should be back by half twelve :)

nonperson 27-05-2018 12:05 PM

Not long to go then. =)

I've now been distracted by Youtube, whoops.

chinahorse 27-05-2018 12:13 PM

Glad you've gotten to know and like the small human np!

Not too long now then eska and then you can chill.

Oops aubergine!

Hair is dry and marginally less offensive. It doesn't like the new conditoner :/
Can't decide if I'm Gunna change outfit though. I'll go empty the recycling so I can see if its cold out.

Aubergine 27-05-2018 12:18 PM

I'm on the next train. :)

That's cool, Eska. Nearly there. :)

Anything good on YouTube?

Well done, Lillie. :) what conditioner? I do not use conditioner...

Eska 27-05-2018 12:21 PM

I have to use conditioner or my hair becomes a brittle tangly mess!

I'm nearly home :) Just the hill to walk up.

Glad you're making progress Aubergine!

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 12:33 PM

Hello everyone!
Just popping in to check you're all behaving yourselves :tongue2:

Aubergine 27-05-2018 12:36 PM

My hair gets super greasy and conditioner makes it look awful!

Glad you're nearly home, Eska. :)

Hey beckie! We're behaving. :) hope your having a good time!

nonperson 27-05-2018 12:40 PM

I have to use conditioner or I just end up in a fly-away, static mess!

Was looking at subscription box un-boxings on Youtube. It's not made it any easier to decide which one to get so I'll stop now and do some cleaning instead.

Aubergine 27-05-2018 12:44 PM

I do not know what an unboxing is! Hope you're able to decide though! Cleaning is a good plan!

I can see the sea from the train!

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 01:00 PM

Glad you guys are behaving! :p

I also need to use conditioner every time!

Aubergine 27-05-2018 01:12 PM

You strange haired people. :P

Cacoethes 27-05-2018 02:39 PM

Me? Strange?!
*shocked face*

I think you’ll find we’re the normal ones here ;-)

nonperson 27-05-2018 03:21 PM

Eska 27-05-2018 03:59 PM

I'm going on holiday to Cornwall in August.
5* cottage with hot tub and sauna!

Aubergine 27-05-2018 07:08 PM

Sounds amazing! Who with?

I had a lovely day down south. Weather has been fabulous!
