Bonjour Barbara !

Attention ! The "ne explétif" is used in conversation, as well as in writing. It's just that some people nowadays omit it sometimes.
You still need to know that it's there, and recognise it when people use it, notwithstanding use it yourself in formal writing (admin...).

Bonne journée !
