All I've left to do now is clean the shower cubicle and bathroom floor and run the hoover around. Though the latter always seems a bit pointless as it's a fair bit rubbish.

Is it raining where everyone is? It is here which is making me not wanna go out.

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 12:12 PM

Well done Lillie!
How fantastically productive!

Not raining here

not_so_insig 16-06-2018 01:13 PM

It's not raining here either. Forecast rain but so far it hasn't appeared.

chinahorse 16-06-2018 02:14 PM

Thanks guys. I managed to stay mostly dry on my trip to town. But now it's so windy it's raining sideways.

Am knackered! Lunch and nap before some study I think.

What're you guys up to?

not_so_insig 16-06-2018 02:15 PM

Why is there nothing decent on the telly today? The only programme I am looking forward to is Casualty and that's over 6 hours away. Not everyone likes football so you would think that they would put something decent on to compensate. Time to break out the dvds!

not_so_insig 16-06-2018 02:16 PM

I am not up to much Lillie. Contemplating what to do now that there's **** all on the telly.

chinahorse 16-06-2018 02:20 PM

Agree! And there'll be weeks of football yet :(

I'm watching a place in the sun.

not_so_insig 16-06-2018 02:30 PM

Then we have Wimbledon to look forward to as well so even less choice. Fortunately I am going away during the first week of Wimbledon so I shan't be bored.

one_step_closer 16-06-2018 03:20 PM

It was absolutely bucketing down here about half an hour ago. I had almost just arrived home so it was a win for me! I don't mind the rain too much though.

Football is definitely overrated in my opinion and I really don't think it should dominate TV so much.

I've got a free trial of Netflix so I'm watching crime documentaries and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt mostly.

not_so_insig 16-06-2018 04:57 PM

It's raining here. I am watching the Chronicles of Narnia dvd (the bbc version). I am having to watch it on the portable dvd player because for some reason it won't play on the one fixed to the telly.

Aubergine 16-06-2018 05:18 PM


chinahorse 16-06-2018 05:55 PM

As per usual my nap became way too long :/

Glad you disnt get soggy lindsay.

Hey aubergine :) how's things?

RiseInside 16-06-2018 06:19 PM

Hi everyone!

I know how you feel chinahorse, it seems like every time I try and nap it turns into a few hours long slumber.

Maybe my bed's just a little too comfortable.

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 08:27 PM

Hey guys

not_so_insig 16-06-2018 08:28 PM

I have had pizza. Had to construct it myself rather than just open the packet and shove it in the oven. But it was nice and I had a dip so it was worth it.

one_step_closer 16-06-2018 08:46 PM

Hi Aubergine.

Hi Beckie.

Welcome RiseInside.

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 08:58 PM

Sounds good dawn

Hi Lindsay!
How are you?

one_step_closer 16-06-2018 09:25 PM

I just spent ages scrolling through the Paperchase sale on their website but didn't really see anything I wanted/needed. I do like a sale though.

What are you getting up to Beckie?

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 09:26 PM

I love paperchase. So expensive though!

I'm watching casualty

one_step_closer 16-06-2018 09:31 PM

Yeah, Paperchase is mega expensive. I enjoy getting my birthday 5 to spend there with my membership card or whatever it is.

You should be fully focusing on Casualty, not posting here, what if you miss something important!

chinahorse 16-06-2018 09:31 PM

Paperchase is amazing! Unnecessarily expensive though.

I'm doing some CPD for work on safeguarding children and its sapping my will to live :/ Also made me feel somewhat wobbly/

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 09:44 PM

I find it impossible to just focus on one thing at a time!
So I'm pretty much always on my phone/playing a game at the same time as watching tv!

That sounds pretty terrible tbh Lillie.

chinahorse 16-06-2018 09:53 PM

Im like that too Beckie. Its cos our brains are super impressive teehee

Im looking at laptops. Where else do you get a laptop than currys?

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 09:58 PM

That is defo the reason!

I buy everything from Amazon
Other than that, not sure!

Aubergine 16-06-2018 10:21 PM

I'm like that too, Beckie and Lillie! Sometimes I have music on quietly so I can just hear it over a TV programme, and be on the internet messing about. I can't just do one thing.

How're you guys this evening?

I got 84% on my COPD assignment. :D

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 10:34 PM

Im watching mrs browns boys and baking slimming world oat cookies.
Not sure how they'll turn out!

That's fantastic aubergine!
Very well done! :-D

Aubergine 16-06-2018 10:37 PM

Mmm. Oat cookies sound delicious! I had slimming world Haribo things the other day. Were rather nice!

I don't like that programme. :P

I'm listening to music and Googling things!

Thank you! :)

chinahorse 16-06-2018 10:38 PM

Nomnom Beckie!!

Well done aubergine :)

Aubergine 16-06-2018 10:43 PM

Thanks Lillie! :)

Cat as asleep next to me. <3

*shares the cat love*

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 10:45 PM

The oat cookies are quite nice!

Yay for cat love!
Wish I had a pet!

not_so_insig 16-06-2018 10:50 PM

I am hopefully baking stuff tomorrow if the voices don't kick in. Does anyone know if you can freeze carrots?

Aubergine 16-06-2018 10:53 PM

I'm glad they're nice, Beckie! :)

Sounds good, Dawn! I freeze cooked carrots. :)

Cacoethes 16-06-2018 10:55 PM

Off to bed now guys!
Night night all and sleep well!

Aubergine 16-06-2018 10:57 PM

Night night, Beckie! I hope you sleep well. :)

chinahorse 16-06-2018 10:57 PM

Night Beckie :) sleep well.

*takes some kitty cuddles*

Carrots freeze?!

Im buying a laptop and hoover. So grown up.

Aubergine 16-06-2018 11:02 PM

Well, I freeze carrots when I freeze stew and stuff?

Oh that is grown up shopping! What kind of hoover? I have a real want for a cordless vacuum, but they're expensive. :( Maybe if I get some birthday money I can start to save up...

not_so_insig 16-06-2018 11:06 PM

I ask because I have a kilo of carrots because that was cheaper than buying ready grated carrots. I definitely don't need a kilo of carrots for my carrot cake so it seems wasteful to put them in the bin. I wouldn't eat them so if I could freeze them it means that I would have enough for any future carrot cake.

chinahorse 16-06-2018 11:11 PM

Worth a try Dawn, worst that can happen is you eventually have to bin them.

Its a erm Vax bagless cylinder mabob.

Aubergine 16-06-2018 11:34 PM

I agree with Lillie, Dawn! :)

Oh sounds nice! I have a super old vacuum that my manger gave me a couple of years ago! A cordless one will be mine one day...

not_so_insig 17-06-2018 08:24 AM

FFS! My neighbours alarum clock has woken me up. Who on earth sets their alarum clock at 7 am on a Sunday?! Pissed off is an understatement.

Buttons. 17-06-2018 10:15 AM

Sorry you got woken up Dawn although they might have had a good reason to be up early.

Morning all :)

chinahorse 17-06-2018 10:20 AM

Might have work or something Dawn. Though it does suck that you were woken up.

Morning buttons :)

Buttons. 17-06-2018 10:28 AM

Morning Lillie hows things?

chinahorse 17-06-2018 10:33 AM

I'm sore but ok enough.
How're you?

Irritated that the laptops I want to buy are out of stock for delivery and getting to the retail park is a nightmare.

nonperson 17-06-2018 11:15 AM

Hullo folks.

I really need a new laptop, still struggling through with my increasingly glitchy one...

one_step_closer 17-06-2018 12:20 PM

Morning morning.

I got a new hoover delivered on Friday. The suction was so strong I was surprised it didn't suck up the whole carpet and leave a bare floor!

Cacoethes 17-06-2018 12:46 PM

Morning guys

Sounds like a good hoover Lindsay!

It's very grey and cloudy today.
Will probably rain.
Its the duck race today but my ankle is so bad I don't think I can make the walk down :(

not_so_insig 17-06-2018 02:13 PM

The thing is that they are in the flat right now so if they had work at 9 am they wouldn't be in. He seems to be not in at between 12 and 6 so presumably works then so there's no reason to set his alarum clock on a Sunday at that time.

Cacoethes 17-06-2018 02:30 PM

I always get a box of grapes and melon for lunch.
They've all been arranged with grapes on top, orange melon in the middle and green melon at the bottom.
For the last few days, the green melon has been in the middle and the orange melon is at the bottom.
This is not ok!

chinahorse 17-06-2018 02:39 PM

Which hoover lindsay?

Haha beckie! We are such creatures of habit. What's up with the ankle?

NP :D howdy.

I went back to bed. And have just woken up feeling a lot more alive. Yet to try sitting upright though which was the issue before. Still yay for minimal fatigue.
