Even if it’s my half-hour late day I’m still tired, go away!


I watch GMTV til about half past when I start getting ready. Wednesdays I don’t have to start work until 08:30, score!


“Where’s your teddy?” “What happened to Homer and the furry dice… and the nodding dog?” I hear you ask! Well as of Saturday this won’t be my car any longer, I’m getting a new one! It’s an early 21st birthday present! I’ve taken everything out because early in the morning the new owner is looking over it.


I’m at work, and I’ve bought in some nibbles because we’re having a mini party. There won’t be much work to do today anyway so it’ll be a good chance to get my filing done and have a clean out of our e-mail box. I gave Sophie a lift to pick up her car yesterday so she got me a Galaxy Muffin… I’m gonna eat that now! lol


Breakfast time! Here’s the spread of food that everyone’s contributed to 🙂 No one likes sitting at this desk cos it’s right next to the door, and no one’s really in today so that’s our buffet table!


It’s time for lunch. I grabbed some of our buffet before I came out and I’m listening to the iPod bought me for xmas. Asha’s sat next to me.


This is Ros and Sedem, and Asha’s sat to my left out of the camera view. Sedem’s sat in my place and Sophie’s gone to lunch so I’m sat at her desk. We’re having a bit of a chinwag about a few work related things.


Sophie’s back and John’s came over to eat some of our sweets too… Have we really eaten that much today!?


Work’s finished and my mate’s working 3-11pm. We finally figure out what’s happening tonight. They said I can stay over on one condition, I have to go to Asda and get some red wine, Strongbow and 2 pizzas. Better get moving then. I think they close at 6 but the traffic could be bad!


That was awful! They close at 5, Stewart called to find out where I was and got angry because I was running an errand for my mate when he’s been at home all day and my dad wants to change the batteries on our cars because I had a new one put on mine but we’re selling it. I would have taken a pic inside Asda but I could barely move and I have to hurry up and get home now so Stewart can go to Claire’s.


Deep calming breaths. Had to call my mate up and he has to pick me up after all because dad’s taking the car early in the morning. They said I had to drive over to theirs, but I call him and explain and he agrees to swing by after he’s finished work to pick me up, so I’m going to sit and watch my new DVD “2 Weeks Notice”.


Mmmm a nice hot bath, just what I need. My parents are all ready to go out now so I’m going in the bath.
I got out an hour later (all wrinkly like a prune lol) after my mate called to tell me he had got off work early and he’d call me later when he was ready to pick me up.


There’s an “Only Fools And Horses” special on TV. I love that show. While I’m watching, Mate calls to tell me he’ll be on his way. My hair is still soaking wet and I’ve not packed my overnight bag. Better get cracking!


I called Stewart to ask to borrow his duvet (blue stripes) as I’ll be sleeping on the floor tonight and he says it’s fine. So here’s my junk in my mate’s room. He picked me up after Only Fools and Horses finished at 9.


We sit and watch lots of TV. We’re watching K-Pax at the moment.


At 23:50 we start flicking through the channels (BBC1 and ITV) We watched some of the Hogmanay celebrations, but the outdoor stuff was cancelled due to poor weather conditions, but they still had Liberty X to perform lol.

We head off upstairs after 10 minutes and get ready for bed, watching “100 best TV moments of 2003” His parents come home at 1:15 ish with some friends and they invite us downstairs for a drink but we decide not to. We both finally drifted off to sleep at 3am 🙂


Morning. I woke up at 5am, but decided I was rolling back over and going to sleep some more!


Now Stewart’s awake I can get my presents from my secret hiding place (under my sofa bed in the box for my duvet). I can’t wait to see everyone’s faces!


This is my parents and Stewart opening their presents. I only had a few to open so they’re still going with theirs. Still I have Buster to play with and to watch my bro opening all his presents from me 🙂
I was so unaware what was about to happen! After Stewart had opened his presents we went up to get his presents for mum and dad, and he apologised for not getting me anything this year. I never normally get presents from Stewart anyway and I don’t expect them, but he always gets us all a card. He handed my parents their presents and card and handed me my own card. When I opened it, out fell my present – tickets to see Busted in concert in March! I cry and give my bro a big big hug!!


Here are all my funky presents – Doggy slippers and car cover from my parents, tube of Smarties from Ros (work colleague), My Busted ticket to the left of the smarties, A White Musk Body shop gift set from Sarah (work colleague), Moonflower body shop set from Beckie (mate’s sister), Splat balls from Sophie (work colleague) and a Vanity case with cosmetics from my nan and gramp 🙂


I decide to watch “A Knight’s Tale” I bought this DVD ages ago and still haven’t seen it yet… But just as the film starts I get a call from Stewart who had already left and was at his fiance’s house. Kelly and Tom were at home but were going out at 11:45 so I could take my pressie to Kelly and the card for them and the twins.


I’m wandering up the road to go and see them now I’m ready lol! Bit of a dull, wet and dreary day in good old England!


Aww, this is Bailey wearing her “Baby’s First Xmas” Winney The Pooh baby grow outfit. Kelly’s getting ready, and Tom’s just popped out. Soon enough, Jane (Tom’s mum) and his grandma had arrived at their tiny flat, so I suggest I leave them to it, and wish them all a Merry Xmas 🙂


My cousin Leanne lives just down the road from Kelly and Tom so I pop in to see her, my Aunt Jayne and Uncle Brian. She’s on the phone chatting to her mate. I haven’t seen her since the wedding when we were both bridesmaids. I’d still be in my warm PJs too!


I finally walk back home and decide to have a nap with Taz after looking at my vanity case. I don’t have a lot of makeup and don’t really wear it, so this’ll be fun! I have a small nap before Tigger’s movie comes on!


Mum calls me for my xmas dinner (just what we normally have on a Sunday really) and I carry on watching the Tigger Movie


Mate finished work at 2, but I don’t know what time I’m going over or anything so I’d better get ready now just in case. Nice hot bath! Mmm!


Like my handy work? I found this pic at the Nerdy Boards (Busted and McFly) and decide to have it as a desktop pic and for my winamp too. I might put this up at my site for download


I got a message from my mate to say I can go over whenever. These are my presents 🙂 A necklace from mate’s mum and dad, and an iPod and USB lead from my mate! A place to put all my Busted songs on!!


Heck, it has to be my birthday and xmas all in one – Busted on Parkinson’s dressed as choirboys *drools* They soon rip that off and get their guitars to do their version of Hark The Herald 🙂


I come home because mate’s tired. D’ya like the pretty lights?


Hehe, I come to play with my iPod as I didn’t get a look in at my mate’s because they fell in love with it and played with it. I’m chatting to Amy! I tell her to say Hi for the camera 🙂


I jump into bed after playing with the iPod long enough, and I didn’t want to hold my tickets any longer in case I rubbed the ink off lol. There’s something on the TV about a programme from the 80s I remember called “Spitting Image” where they made puppets of celebrities and made fun of them! Good Night and Merry Xmas!
