I'm a bit para that she's cut it at different lengths but my mum has reassured me that it's just how I've pushed my hair back in this pic https://imgur.com/a/lVYy8G0
Still looking a bit ratty and unhealthy though

^ Thats great to here Melangell
Is it an online course or one that involves interacting with real life people?
Either way, it sounds very brave and pro active


@ Bluebear- Leaving somewhere that wasn't a healthy environment for you anymore is a massive achievement

Wow, you have beautiful lustrous looking hair, Dimples, and I am green with envy


@ Jen.m - Well done on signing up for ice skating lessons
It's something that I have never done but wish I had

This was terrible It was just me and four guys, two much younger than me and two much older. It felt a bit awkward since the place was quite busy. I didn't feel too nervous talking to them, but I got the impression that none of them really wanted me there. Oh well. They weren't really the kind of people I'd be friends with anyway.

I answered the door to the Tesco delivery guy tonight. My mum had to go out quickly and Tesco arrived when she was out (I usually hide upstairs when they come round) But tonight I had to answer the door and unpack the boxes. It was only slightly awkward because I unpacked the boxes really quickly so hardly any awkward silence. I also wished him a good night so at least managed to say something.

^ I carry the boxes myself from the front door to the kitchen, so I don't have to interact other than swapping empty boxes for full ones.

I don't really know what the etiquette is for that. I don't do online food shopping much, but when I do I just pile everything in the porch while they lift up each box in turn for me to grab the contents, then put it all away when they're gone.

^When mum's delivery comes, they wheel it all through to the kitchen for her and I guess unpack it for her.

They often seem to assume people want to chat and are obviously told to be friendly. I get that most people want that, it's just mildly distracting for me having a conversation - especially with someone new - when I'm unpacking and checking things - or at the checkout when I'm carefully packing my shopping. Part of my brain always goes - why is this person talking to me as if we know each other and are catching up? Then I'm like, oh they've been told to do this because the average customer likes it. Must be polite. All good practice I suppose. And if you order at the same time and day you often get the same driver, so I suppose it would be more natural to talk in that situation.

I actually complained about something yesterday...
I was staying in a cheap hotel, the first room they gave me was not entirely clean (details omitted for politeness) so I went downstairs and said that the room wasn't clean. The woman apologised and gave me a different room. It went well!

Good attitude and nice personality
Excellent, well mannered yet professional and competent
Polite, courteous, cheerful and helpful
Good communication, cheerful and pleasant

The other day, I went to a pub in Faversham and had a beer and some lunch, with just me and my dog. It was lovely.
A few years ago, there was no way I could go into a pub on my own and order lunch. I'd be too worried about what people thought about me being on my own. Now I just think, **** want people think. Anyway, there were plenty of people on there own there, so it's nothing unusual

Nice. I was wondering myself earlier if they do rowing on the Thames. I know there is a place that does canoeing and somewhere that does some small sailboat thing. can't remember rowing though.

I like doing hill challenges on the cycle.

I've never really been into rowing machines, but the other day I had a go on one belonging to one of my sister's housemates and I loved it! I'd never seen one like that before - it's made of wood and has a water bowl on the end that goes swish-swish as you pull.

^That's the same one I've got. A waterrower.

They look lovely and are easy to store, but they don't have the same community as the Concept rowers do, so if you're competitive you're better off with the Concept as you can compete online.

Ooh yeah, that's it.

The ones at the gym are just boring metal ones.

Can you fill it with juice?
