Its so quiet!! Why are you all having lives on my day off?!!

Cacoethes 31-08-2018 01:14 PM

This is how I feel a lot of the time :p

My bus didn't turn up so I had to wait for the longer and later bus.
Which means I will miss my next bus that only goes every hour :plain:

not_so_insig 31-08-2018 01:26 PM

I have had a parcel. Idk what's in it though. I am waiting until I am alone (my mum is here) to open it though.

chinahorse 31-08-2018 01:30 PM

Oh no Beckie! Where are you off to?

Intriguing Dawn.

Aubergine 31-08-2018 01:30 PM


I have done my housework, except from the vacuuming. Because I started and then it wouldn't suck anything up. I was getting cross with it because I've only had it since he end of June and spent almost 5 weeks not being able to use the thing. Then I looked at the filter and saw on the instructions that it was recommended to clean it out once a week with warm water (it's cordless). So... No vaccuming until the filter has properly dried out! Oops...

That was a long and boring story. I wouldn't say that housework and making Important Phonecalls would be 'having a life' to most people, but to me I'm still getting over the novelty. :P Also, trying to relax on my last Friday before going back to work. :/

chinahorse 31-08-2018 02:03 PM

Very productive aubergine! And glad you figured out the filter thing. I'm guilty of knowing I should do it but don't.

one_step_closer 31-08-2018 02:30 PM

Hello everyone.

It's hard to get hoover filters to dry in the months when you don't put your heating on, so then you're left without a hoover for ages I find.

Aubergine 31-08-2018 03:09 PM

Hello Lillie and Lindsay! How are you both?

I am getting a new sofa soon! It's coming today! I'm so excited, as the one I've got is not at all comfortable and a bit broken. It was super, super cheap and it's served a purpose, but my Uncle came into some money a part of a pension pay out, and kindly offered to buy me a new one, so hooray! :D

:D I also got the EXTRA COMFY SEATS. Me and that cat aren't going to know that we're born!

Buttons. 31-08-2018 03:16 PM

*blatantly steals Aubergine's new sofa* that looks SO COMFY!!!

Aubergine 31-08-2018 03:42 PM


Pleae don't steal it. I have NEVER had a comfy sofa of my own in the 10 years I've been moved out of home. I feel so lucky that I'm getting one now! :D AND it comes in a box and is 'guaranteed to fit' into my flat! That means it's self-assembly, but it's all good. I have a friend coming tonight to help me. I'm paying her in chinese... :D

How are you, Buttons?!

one_step_closer 31-08-2018 04:04 PM

That looks so good, multiple positions easily possible! I'd hope there isn't too much self assembly but I'm glad your friend is coming to help. I hope you enjoy the comfiness. :-)

I'm ok I think.

How's everyone else?

Aubergine 31-08-2018 04:16 PM

Thanks Lindsay. :) I will offer the sofa to the thread in a virtual manner. :) You can all sit on it in cyberspace!

I'm glad that you think you're OK. Have a *hug* What have you been up to?

Aubergine 31-08-2018 04:17 PM

Thanks Lindsay. :) I will offer the sofa to the thread in a virtual manner. :) You can all sit on it in cyberspace!

one_step_closer 31-08-2018 04:35 PM

Ooh, virtual comfort! I'm wondering what things we have in this thread since many things have been brought in in the past. Do they still exist here or do they disappear?

I went to get points put on my card for The Works because it said on my last receipt that they weren't added but when I got there the lady said they had been added so I had went out there for no reason. I don't have any concrete plans for the rest of the day.

Have you been doing anything exciting other than Sofa purchasing?

chinahorse 31-08-2018 06:36 PM

That sofa is so tiny! But super squishy looking. Is it here yet?

Oh, thats annoying Lindsay. At least it got you out in the fresh air though?

one_step_closer 31-08-2018 06:38 PM

I get out most days anyway, it was just I went there specifically and it's a bit of a bus journey. I have nothing better to do though!

How is your day going Lillie?

nonperson 31-08-2018 06:39 PM

Weeeeeeeekend! =D

nonperson 31-08-2018 06:40 PM

one_step_closer 31-08-2018 06:54 PM

zombiehunter 31-08-2018 06:55 PM

nonperson 31-08-2018 06:56 PM

Only a little bit. =)

It's been an incredibly tiring week and I'm more than ready to sleep in and do nothing all day tomorrow.

Buttons. 31-08-2018 06:59 PM

Glad you're getting your rest time Np :)

one_step_closer 31-08-2018 07:27 PM

What Native American delights have you ordered for us Beckie?

Cacoethes 31-08-2018 07:39 PM

I ordered veg korma, egg rice, peshwari naan and onion bhajis!!

And now watching Infinity war

nonperson 31-08-2018 07:41 PM

Peshwari naan is awesome.

I'd swap the naan and bhajis for a stuffed paratha and samosas though.

zombiehunter 31-08-2018 07:45 PM

only a korma?? you wuss also VEG korma, you hippy :-p

Cacoethes 31-08-2018 07:50 PM

Peshwari is the best!!

I can't handle spice!!
And I am very much a carnivore but I prefer veg korma for some reason!

nonperson 31-08-2018 07:50 PM

Korma is tasty.

Cacoethes 31-08-2018 07:54 PM

It is!
It has all been nommed now

zombiehunter 31-08-2018 08:25 PM

I went to see that film the happytime murders last night

I will never think about silly string the same way again

chinahorse 31-08-2018 08:27 PM

That film seems very weird zombie.

It was fairly nice, bit drier than I was expecting but nice enough.

Cacoethes 31-08-2018 08:46 PM

I am tired!

chinahorse 31-08-2018 08:51 PM

Me too! Feels much later than 10 to 9. And you just reminded me I need to put the mattress protector, sheet and duvet cover back on :(

Cacoethes 31-08-2018 08:56 PM

It does feel lots later!

Ugh effort.
Will be nice when they're on though!

nonperson 31-08-2018 09:02 PM

I am also tired... Not sure I'll make it through the next tv programme.
