Where are you????

DemonBradleySlaysPippi Fri 23-Oct-09 21:46:34

Top shop shoes are a rip off - sorry. Went there last saturday and the quality is rubbish and the prices shock!
Managed to find a great pair of biker boots in a little boutique shop in Long Acre for half the price!

How long am I going to talk to myself before you find me?

JavierBardem Fri 23-Oct-09 21:48:14

I am here. I was talking to myself on the other thread. I also want a Halloween name.

JavierBardem Fri 23-Oct-09 21:48:49

Agree about the quality at TS.

JavierBardem Fri 23-Oct-09 21:50:54

Off to bed in 5 minutes. Did the tidying, but cannot face anything else except sleep.

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 21:51:10

Hey people.

I don't shop in TopShop any longer as it would be shameful to be seen trying to dress the same as my students. grin

Uggggghhhh. Feel sick. I ate a tub of ice cream and a quarter of a jar of Nutella. For no reason other than I could. Blurrrgh. blush

Salads tomorrow! grin

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 21:51:51

Am also drinking G & T. Tut tut.

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 21:52:48

Actually, I know exactly the reason. DH is in Lecce for a conference, and so he is not here to break my balls about eating crap. grin

Camomilla Fri 23-Oct-09 21:53:01

i'm here, sorry, busy coughing l'anima...

JB, nothing major, i mean, don't even speak to them, but the stupid girls are always outside chatting on the phone at late night, if not them, then it's the father with one of the boyfriends, which you hear arrive because of the loud speakers and slamming of doors, and they've got a conifer that was just a little bush, but their garden is a jungle so that thing hasn't been touched and is now double the fence height so bif shade in OUR garden angry. and they chat basically underneath the bedroom window where DD sleeps, waking her quite often angryangryangry

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 21:53:26

I also had Chinese for dinner.

The list of shame goes on and on... grin

DemonBradleySlaysPippi Fri 23-Oct-09 21:54:16

Hey Penthe! I've had a week of such c**p diet, gos knows why! And no I am NOT pg!
How's things? Enjoying work?
You can and should look like your students!!

JB my evening was same as yours. Should have gone for bath and bed with a book and early ight considering the million times minipippi woke up last night and possibly will tonight. Instead I am here discussing KM and TS. hmm

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 21:54:45

Ahhhh, Camo poverina. I hope your cough eases up soon.

Argh. Your neighbours sounds awful. sad & angry for you. It would drive me wild.

Camomilla Fri 23-Oct-09 21:55:18

notte JB, don't do any reading, I've got far too much to catch up!

penthe, wish I had some wine to join you... and wish I could be bothered heating up the creme brulee...... but might go for a magnum...

DemonBradleySlaysPippi Fri 23-Oct-09 21:56:16

Camo when are you going to see some more houses?

JavierBardem Fri 23-Oct-09 21:57:06

Camo, pita neighbours, I see your point.

Hello Penthe, lucky dp to be able to go to Lecce, I hear it;s beautiful. How is work? And life?

I really should go to bed...

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 21:57:50

Hey Pippi. Yes, love work. Am less in love with the fact that I feel so rushed all the time - every minute is accounted for. Previously, I could mooch about a bit - find a colleague for coffee, stay late to finish photocopying, whatever. Of course now I have to rush there and back because of DD - which I want to, of course, to be with her - but still, it puts pressure on my job which wasn't there before. Nevermind. I have a good job. I'm lucky. smile Pressure, though - need to complete a lot of research output before the next research assessment exercise (or replacement). If not, I've been told in no uncertain terms that I will never be promoted... Sigh. Must get on with it...

JavierBardem Fri 23-Oct-09 21:57:53

yes, let's talk houses?
have you moved penthe?

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 21:59:30

Wassup Javier. grin

I have the first series of The Wire on DVD - present from a friend. Am scared to start it in case of addiction... grin

Camomilla Fri 23-Oct-09 22:00:37

not til next year now, just no time really til after xmas (need to sort THIS house first blush). MIL coming in 2 wks time for 9 days (she said she only wants to come for 4 days, been very reluctant to come as she finds it too tiring, but she won't listen and come on the train, insist on coach hmm). she says she won't come for a very long time afterwards hmm. so sounds like instead of getting in a mood after 2-3 days, she'll already be in a mood by the time she gets here

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 22:01:01

Ha. Have we moved? Fat effing chance. Of course, it is all DH's fault wink. Seriously, though, he was too ill so we had to cancel on the day (arrgh - major expense), and now he's too stressed at work, and I'm not much better - so we're holding out to Xmas, which is a financial disaster really. But hey. There it is. No point worrying.

JavierBardem Fri 23-Oct-09 22:01:29

Penthe, don't then. You WILL become addicted. The writing is soo good. Must rewatch it. You sound busy, but you are strong and young!

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 22:02:29

Yikes. Sounds like fun, Camo. hmm Our ILs are coming for Xmas too. It Will Be Fine. I am telling myself this...

Penthesileia Fri 23-Oct-09 22:03:25

LOL @ strong and young. You make me sound like a milking heifer or something. grin Moooo.

JavierBardem Fri 23-Oct-09 22:03:33

Camo, lol at your mil. Hard work. grin

Penthe, you can have Christmas in your new place. A new beginning. You will love it. Sod the expense. grin
