Good morning πŸ™‚ Not bad time to get up, seeing as I was up til very late last night… Or maybe I’ll just lay in bed for a little longer. Bless days off!


Hey look, friends is on T4 πŸ™‚ I watch a double episode and then decide to get up!


I go to my usual forum haunts (Protagonist pictured) I can spend hours on the computer!


Mum gets a phone call from the man who is welding the bottom of my car. She tells me after that I have to get ready to go and get it, and then I can carry on playing on the computer πŸ™‚


I choose my “Star” top, and my fav pair of Jeans. Time to get dressed!


I got a battery operated toothbrush for Xmas, so no more boring brushing! Yesss! I got my face wipes, hair bands, deodorant…


Muahaha, back to the computer I go… This is in our dining room. We have a large table but it’s magical haha. It folders away and all the chairs goes into the door thing under it.


Hmph. About an hour after the last pic, my dad takes me to get my car but makes me leave the camera at home. I don’t think he quite understands the idea of a photolog. Anyway, my mum is actually cooking! Yuck, it don’t look very nice…


I grab some Thai Bites (Sweet Herb flavour!) some Tropical juice and a mini mars bar. I don’t eat the whole pack, only a few of them. Mum has them because they are just rice crackers and are VERY low in fat!


After I finish once again on the computer. This is the road behind my house. The back of my house is in a cul-de-sac and this is the road just off of that. I’m walking to Safeway as my car is on charge. Besides, we rely too much on cars…


5 minutes later I reach the main road. The man is on red, and the lights are on green, but I cross anyway. It’s not very busy!


I crossed over to the Wheatway. At the top of the hill, one of my ex bf’s used to live. He moved away about 2 years ago (thank heavens!). Right outside his old house a year ago I had a car crash, where the white car is coming out, another one of my ex-bfs used to live (His mum kicked him out cos he was always in trouble), and the turning on the right 2 of my mates from Primary school lives.


Finally get to the top of the hill, and back down the otherside. That’s Safeway, where I used to work πŸ™‚ Right, it’s about 2pm…


Hehe, some of the nutters I worked with. (l-r) Rich Johnson, Phil Knight and James Morgan. I only came up to get some Fanta Orange, some AAA batteries, a Vodafone top up card and some papers for mum! I chat to these guys for ages and then bump into James Knights who I haven’t seen in months cos he’s back from Uni.


Seeing as it only takes me about 15 minutes to walk to Safeway and it’s now about 3:20pm… I was a bit chatty! Hehe. I took a small detour to the front of my house to show you guys my road. It’s a bit messy though, but behind the flats in the distance are farms and fields and behind the houses to the right (well a bit further) is Robinswood Hill, where they have a ski slope!


This is my house, with the castle wall πŸ™‚ The middle window and the window on the right are mine πŸ™‚ My room is over the alley leading to the back garden of our house and the neighbour’s to the right.


Time for more food. I’m really hungry!! I have some Xmas cake (yummy!) and some orange. I continue to play on the computer!


Time for a break I think. I sit in the lounge with my parents, my bro and his fiance. Another double episode of Friends! This time on E4. T4 is on channel 4, and E4 is the sky equivalent.


I finish off 2 episodes of Friends, and then I go to my room to be musical. I have a go on my guitar and my flute.


Yummy, mum makes some nibbles! I got Brie and crackers, some cheesey sausage rolls, cashew nuts and 3 slices of ham and pickle. Mmmmmmmm…


Bath time πŸ™‚ The Lavender body wash was my present from my bro. I have to be at my mate’s house in about 2 hours


My over night bag is packed with my pillow, duvet and sleeping bag (I’m sleeping on the floor. The duvet is to make is more comfortable)


Happy New Year! As you can probably tell this was taken through a window (TV image in the bottom corner!) LOTS of fireworks were going off, but I caught it at a bad time I guess. We were watching Jonathan Ross on TV.


Ugh, It’s 6:30 in the morning and the alarm on my psion wakes me up. Time to turn on the lamp and TV.


After 20 minutes of just laying in bed I suppose it’s time I’d better get up! I have my clothes picked out and my reindeer antlers ready!


Right, time to go to the bathroom. I have to clean my teeth, brush my hair and put tinsel in it and cleanse my face too with my face wipes.


I have to drive to work now, and it’s still dark! I start at 8am. Can you see my nodding dog in the back and my white teddy bear in the front?


Hooray! At work! If you can read it, the phone rings: “Hello Kirsty”, and then has my Extension number πŸ™‚ I’m all signed in on my phone and I’ve signed in on the Admin sheet.


This is my (unorganised) desk. Lots of paperwork, just the usual stuff.



Asha’s started work. She’s just logging on to her computer.


Breakfast time. Or at least something to tide me over until my first break, seeing as I never really have breakfast before I go to work in the morning πŸ™‚ It’s mini Jaffa Cakes and Apple and Pear soft drink from the vending machine. And for some reason my “Chatterbox” pack of tissues.


Everyone is in now, except Peter. He starts at 10 and generally keeps himself to himself. Sophie, Khalid, Terry and and Asha are all hard at work. It’s going to be a slow day for me!


At last! First break, I’ve been here 2 hours now. Let’s see I have a bacon roll, tomato sauce and some Cherry Coke. I was given a Xmas card with a fairy on by Sophie. We went to break together and she got toast and hash browns.


It’s ME! And I’m hard at work with the few jobs that came through on e-mail. Don’t you just Looooooove my reindeer antlers? They’re almost as good as the woman stood at the team leader’s desk behind me. She has a nice green Mrs Claus type outfit on. That’s Josephine who sits on my right on the Enquiries desk.


Another picture of me at my desk. My tinsel was falling out of my hair.


I wander off to Kelvin’s desk to see what he’s up to. Look at the greedy pig! All that chocolate! I’d better give him a hand there…


Kelvin opens the Maltesers for me to have some. I think I ate about 2 or 3 and one of the Miniature Heroes. He has a ton of work toΒ do.



Meanwhile back at my desk, the inbox is empty. I walk over to Sophie’s de

sk and catch up on the latest gossip with her. Not anything else to do!


12.42 and it’s lunch. I have the coke left over from earlier and some chips and beans. Half portion – 40p. I’m sat with Sarah. Kelvin comes out for his 10 minute break and then leaves.


No work at all for me on e-mail, so I draw a picture in paint. Festive, huh? I’ve been given another card by Sarah this time. I’m bored.


Finally, some work to do! I have 2 jobs to add to my incoming sheet (I have to keep a record of how many jobs we receive) Only an hour and a half to go and that’ll take me all of 10 minutes to do!


My final 10 minute break. Mars Bar, a sweet from Julie and what’s left of my coke.


I’m sat with Sarah (red top) Amy (Kelvin’s gf in the beige) and Kelvin. Amy doesn’t want her picture taken. Party pooper.


After all of 8 jobs all day, the work starts coming in… and I have less than half an hour to go! Most people were asked if they wanted to go home and use up Lieu time but I didn’t see the point.



Home time πŸ™‚ Sophie waves goodbye to me. Bye bye! Let’s see, I’ve signed out, signed off my phone, logged out and taken my headset to my locker – someone might take it!


Crank up the volume! I listen to my mix tape of Hanson “Snowed In” and Destiny’s Child “8 Days Of Xmas”. There’s Homer air freshner and my white teddy bear πŸ™‚


Right, I’m home and I’ve put my cards together. These are only a few I have, the rest are in the lounge.


Stewart comes into my room to wrap his presents for everyone, and asks to borrow some wrapping paper.


Better have some tea before I go out. Ham and Cheese Chicken Kiev and more beans!


Might as well watch some TV too. It’s celebrity Weakest Link… There was nothing else on, honestly!


I’m going to wash my hair and have a bath now. lol, cheap Asda shampoo and some Avon Lavender body wash!


Better dry my hair cos I don’t want to catch a cold when I go out. I still have the tinsel on my shoes. I might as well listen to Snowed In too while it’s there πŸ™‚


I’m going to check my e-mail and go to Dodo’s board.


I decide it’s a better idea to wrap my last remaining presents, but there’s a problem. Stewart’s used all my wrapping paper! That’s all I have! What am I going to do?


I wrapped up the t-shirt in a little bit of gold wrapping but I had to fold it tiny! Dad’s toilettries went in the one scrap. As for Stewart’s gf’s toilettries I’ll have to wrap them in a bag. It’s Monty Mouse there, he sings Jingle Bells and his nose flashes!


Arrive at my friend’s house house. I only expect to be there until 9:30pm. I take the big bag of presents for his family over too. I’m going to his nan’s house for dinner tomorrow.


EASTENDERS! Jamie’s on his death bed because of Martin Fowler’s driving skills. Can’t miss a moment of this, it’s my fav soap!


After Eastenders, The Mummy comes on TV. We watch that until Kevin comes over. That’s Kev in the grey top. He was supposed to be over at 8pm, but in Kev Time that was gone 8:30pm. We were going to go to The Turmut Hoer (pub that’s behind me and you can’t see) but instead go to the One Stop Shop to get alcohol and head back to Rich’s house (has his back to me with the dark top on)


We arrive at Rich’s house to watch a bit of TV and socialise. Look Who’s Talking was on, but no one seemed interested in it and so we just chatted. We were getting ready to leave, debating on whether to go back to the Turmut and hope that the queues had gone down. Everyone stares at the sound system in the back of Rich’s car…


We’re back at my friend’s house, drinking some more, eating Chocolates and playing cards with his mum, sister and his mum’s friend. Kevin and Lisa are truly getting into the Xmas spirit! I haven’t had a drop to drink.


Kevin tries explaining some good tips for playing cards… lol, nope. They were discussing their plans for the rest of the night. After this pic was taken they went to Midnight Mass where the plan was to get drunk and sing carols really loudly! I was invited to stay over, but after another 2 hours…


I’m back home. I got a glass of milk and a Cadbury Trifle to eat before I go to bed. I haven’t eaten since my tea over 6 hours ago!


Can’t go to bed without pinching a present from under the tree to open as soon as I wake up… Like the Xmas tree?


Pajamas, and hot water bottle… I’m all ready for bed!


I’m going to finish off “I Love 1983” before I go to sleep. I was born that year! Good night everyone, and Merry Xmas!!
