2014-07-10 01.14.16

1.14: Early morning bottle & nappy change & back to sleep in the cot

2014-07-10 05.57.24

5.56: Dylan chats away and moves around his cot from about 5.30, I finally give in to get a bottle when Gareth hears us up and he comes in to change the nappy & say hello.

2014-07-10 06.42.28

6.42: Someone won’t go back to sleep so it’s up and in baby jail for a moment. Today is going to be all over the place.

2014-07-10 06.54.02

6.54: I eat breakfast and watch teen mom 2 while Dylan plays. I have medicine to take straight after food.

2014-07-10 08.13.12

8.13: Time for Dylan’s porridge πŸ™‚ He has iron and vitamins to take through an oral syringe every morning.

2014-07-10 08.25.05

8.25: I text my friend as we go to baby group together but she is away so am walking down solo today.

2014-07-10 08.46.40

8.46: Dylan goes down for a nap as he is tired and rubbing is eyes. Not surprising seeing as he was up so early, so I put the finishing touches to my cv and do the washing up.

2014-07-10 09.15.36

9.15: But he’s back up. Still, that’s half an hour πŸ™‚

2014-07-10 09.59.13

9.59: We are both dressed. We play some before we have to get ready to leave. I get the bottle that was left over from this morning out of the fridge to take with us. Bags under my eyes and greasy hair are the norm these days!

2014-07-10 10.14.14

10.14: On our way to baby group! What a lovely sunshiney day!

2014-07-10 10.29.47

10.29: We are the only ones to begin with & Dylan is well away having so much space to move freely but 5 other mummies all come.

2014-07-10 11.01.40

11.01: Today’s activity is card, tissue paper and shredded paper. He loves it, and is soon joined by his little friends. Have been trying to get him to take his bottle but he’s not interested but has water.

2014-07-10 11.58.32

11.58: After group, it’s monthly weigh in in the same building as I missed last week because of hospital. 18lb 6oz at 9 months old (tomorrow)

2014-07-10 12.17.36

12.17: Sleepy boy on the way home, hooray! Once we get back, I leave him in the shade and get everything out to cut the grass when he wakes up, but he is patient enough for me to cut it at least but that’s all I can get done.

2014-07-10 12.55.37

12.55: Looking much better. Still waiting for downstairs to cut hers though :/

2014-07-10 13.01.10

13.01: Lunch time! (He normally eats about 12) Peaches a banana! That’s mister’s “put the spoon in my mouth already mum!” face

2014-07-10 13.09.29

13.10: Doc McStuffins while mummy has a shower. All hot & sweaty from doing the garden. He whines the whole time I was in there. Realise I forgot to get foil on the way home.

2014-07-10 13.30.39

13.30: Lunch for meeeeee, then playtime with monkey.

2014-07-10 15.00.25

15.00: I’m exhausted and put Dylan in his cot in hopes that he may have a little sleep (he has been rubbing his eyes!) and so can I. He has had 2 short naps already today so I could be pushing my luck!

2014-07-10 15.07.27

15.07: Definitely pushing my luck. We have cuddles on the bed which turn into “let’s climb over mummy” so back to the front room.

2014-07-10 15.28.05

15.28: But monkey is tired and starts crying. He’s too tired for snacks which he usually eats now…

2014-07-10 15.33.28

15.33: … So I get a bottle ready and chilled down as he rubs his eyes and continues to cry. Though we use a perfect prep machine (best baby purchase without a doubt!), when it gets hot out, he prefers it a little cooler than it comes out at.

2014-07-10 15.36.10

15.36: Anbesol for his gum and a bottle. He starts to drift off… To nap myself or not…

2014-07-10 15.43.19

15.43: Success!

2014-07-10 16.26.24

 

16.26: He wakes up but is still tired. This calls for mummy cuddles. And back to sleep he goes.

2014-07-10 17.25.49

17.25: Still trapped under baby. Send chocolate.

2014-07-10 17.27.44

 

17.27: Begrudgingly wake him up, but he needs to wake up as it’s getting late and he still needs his tea, so while I get it ready, I put him in his travel cot/baby jail.

2014-07-10 17.44.18

17.44: Tea: “my first Sunday dinner”

2014-07-10 17.50.59

17.50: followed by strawberry fromage frais.

2014-07-10 18.01.25

18.01: My tea: crispy chicken, chips & beans (some things never change!)

2014-07-10 18.54.53

18.54: Have been pinching grapes all day lol. Because of the longer nap being stuck under dylan, we skip bath time. He doesn’t have one every single night anyway.

2014-07-10 19.02.49

19.02: Daddy’s home!

2014-07-10 19.37.41

19.37: We sit down and start to unwind after Gareth throws Dylan up in the air which makes him throw up a bit. Have to change Dylan & the travel cot. Glad I didn’t get him dressed for bed before! “Hollywood treasures” is on in the background.

2014-07-10 19.58.45

19.58: A bit sicky on his clean clothes. It’s all good, could have been worse. Gareth looks after Dylan who is showing no signs of wanting to go to bed (not surprising), while I wash up Dylan’s spoons & bottles and then stick the bottles in the steriliser.

2014-07-10 20.00.02

20.00: Big Bang theory! Leonard & penny announce their engagement. We pause a few times to try and get Dylan off to sleep, it doesn’t work. He has a full 8oz bottle (later than his usual 7pm due to late tea. His naps, or lack of, often throw the whole day out) and finally goes to sleep in his cot by 8.30. Gareth pauses until I go back in.

2014-07-10 20.37.31

20.37: How I met your mother. Last but one ever episode. Sad times.

2014-07-10 21.03.08

21.03: Say goodnight to Gareth and I come to bed…

2014-07-10 21.14.15

21.14: … Monkey wakes up. Get him back to sleep. Night all, until Dylan’s next feed.

(Dylan was restless from 12.10, settled a few times but was up at 1. Bottle, bum change and tried to get him back to sleep but wouldn’t. Throw up milk everywhere, PJs changed for both of us, more cuddles and finally back to sleep just before 2am)

Although I have taken part in a “week in the life” from Ali Edward’s blog, I haven’t done a regular Daily Grind/Day in the life project in quite some time… So you shall notice quite a few changes around here…

2013-06-27 06.50.28

6.50am: Alarm goes off at 6.30 and I get up and briefly catch up on the news before I head out in to the kitchen to make myself some strawberry milk and my husband (change 1: I’m married!) his egg mayo sandwiches for work. I forgot to get myself something to put in sandwiches like a donut!

2013-06-27 06.59.48

6.59am: catching up on the weather but I’m not making that much notice as I’m getting ready myself and hubby is about to leave for work

2013-06-27 07.54.04

7.54am: I work in a new place now, after I was made redundant in January from my old job after being there for 8 years. I wave to the gate house guy as he signs me in and out.

2013-06-27 08.02.31

8.02am: Have started work and am eating breakfast and taking my medicine. I was diagnosed with colitis in July last year and have since had my meds doubled so I have to take another one later on.

2013-06-27 09.48.05

9.48am: First snack of the day, I have quite a thing for cheese LOL

2013-06-27 11.51.52

11.51am: Lunch isn’t far away but I can’t wait so I munch on some crisps for now.

2013-06-27 12.13.27

12.13pm: it’s almost lunch but I cave and eat my yogurt and head off to the water cooler to fill up on some water for my squash. That cup is my special cup from our honeymoon trip to Disney World!

2013-06-27 12.35.45

 

12.35pm: Lunch time, and this is why I cannot really take any photos. I work somewhere that the stuff being made is top secret!

2013-06-27 12.36.42

12.36pm: Hello car! Yup, I still like to sit in the back of my car at lunch time to relax πŸ˜€

2013-06-27 12.38.22

12.38pm: Ahhhh, feet up. And it’s nice and sunny, so I decide to leave my coat in the car as it didn’t start off so great.

2013-06-27 13.47.31

13.47pm: Ah yes, change number two: I’m pregnant LOL. baby is giving me a few kicks whilst I work on some invoices πŸ™‚

2013-06-27 14.58.19

14.58: The gatehouse guy brings in more invoices and a little treat for me! So, erm, I scoff it down LOL

2013-06-27 16.35.17

 

16.35pm: It’s hometime and genius I am left the coat in the car and it chucked it down with rain. I stick the heaters on in the car to warm up and dry off a bit! I check back to earlier and it does indeed say it was going to rain. I should have paid attention!

2013-06-27 17.16.21

17.16pm: I get home by 5 Mondays to Thursdays (Fridays are 1pm finish, I am spoiled!) , so I try and decide on some food as I really can’t wait for Gareth to come home. The yorkie pud meal is the winner!

2013-06-27 17.21.29

17.21pm: While the food is cooking, I do the washing up. My energy levels still haven’t picked up and I’m 19 weeks pregnant today. So lately around here, chores kinda get left as I am too tired.

2013-06-27 18.09

18.09: I catch up on Facebook, Feedly, twitter and Pinterest on my phone.

2013-06-27 18.44.34

18.44: Florida calling! We get a call from Matt on Facetime and then I leave Gareth to chat with him while I carry on doing a few bits πŸ™‚

2013-06-27 18.50.59

18.50: I love the Mum & Me range and I have the sleep mist, bubble bath, bump cream & shampoo! It’s time for a shower, and then I just veg out on the sofa. I’m not moving for anyone!

2013-06-27 20.01.39

20.01: The reason we love Thursdays! As Gareth plays World of Warcraft, first on TV is Big Bang Theory. I curl up on the sofa and relax!

2013-06-27 20.33.56-1

20.33: How I Met Your Mother, and it’s Barney’s bachelor party.

2013-06-27 20.59.54

20.59: That’s me done! I head off to bed as I can’t stay up any longer. Yes, there is more housework to do but I am absolutely shattered so Gareth stays up a little longer as I snuggle up to my pregnancy pillow. Β Night all!

 

 

22_11_07_01

Alarm’s gone off and it’s time to get up and take a shower and wash my hair. I was too busy to wash my hair last night before bed lol!

22_11_07_02

Once I’m out the shower and my hair is relatively dry, I sit down and watch the weather and news on GMTV… We’re under the 9 above Bristol lol. I’m eating Coco Pops, but I ran out of milk so I’m using UHT.

22_11_07_03

Lunch box made, hair completely dry, everything ready for work… and there’s frost tonight oh no!

22_11_07_04

Traffic wasn’t too bad today, which was nice πŸ™‚ Here’s my messy desk… and that huge pile of contracts is still there! AHHHH! I get started straight away on finishing my invoices from yesterday. Don’t feel like a hot chocolate this morning.

22_11_07_05

Now all my Self Drive invoices are finished, I get on and type out all the operated ones, ready for printing. My throat starts to feel really funny. I hope I’m not coming down with anything!

22_11_07_06

Lunch time. My time has been moved to 12 o’clock now. I sit in the old reception area which is closed off and full of archive boxes lol. Peace and quiet, seeing as I can’t sit in my car at lunch times anymore. I have my Christmas Creating keepsakes mags (the last lot of mags about Xmas I haven’t read this year yet!) and I sit and play animal crossing and brain training on my DS, all while eating my lunch: cheese and salad cream sandwiches, packet of discos, maltesers, twix and because I run out of yoghurts I have some poppy and sesame seed biscuit thins.

22_11_07_07

Back upstairs at my desk and busy with work!

22_11_07_08

This is one of my favourite things to do lol. I just check through the sheet, make adjustments, and I get to highlight the machines in pretty colours!

22_11_07_09

Right, now it’s time for my monthly shop. I do on occasion pop into Morrisons supermarket to pick up things like bread and milk when I need it, but today is my main shopping day!

22_11_07_10

I get soup, Rice Pudding, Squash, pizzas, Chocolate, some more cereal because I ate the last of it this morning (and I pick up some porridge to have now it’s getting colder in the mornings!) longlife milk for emergencies (like this morning!), chicken nuggets… my usual stuff… I have the sweetest till lady who helps me pack because I’m not feeling well still.

22_11_07_11

I got home, unpacked all the shopping and head straight back out again to mum and dad’s house when Buster comes running down the stairs to say hello! I help dad with his e-mails and check some things online with him and chat to mum when she got home from the gym.

22_11_07_12

back home again lol. Check my own e-mails and bloglines, and begin writing the minutes of Tuesdays dance committee meeting ready for our show in April. Lots to do! I have to find a venue in 2 weeks! I check yellow pages and some websites to get some ideas.

22_11_07_13

I take a small break and watch Scrubs on E4 + 1, then flick over to E4 ready for Friends at 8pm… Once that’s eaten, I go back to the computer to carry on with minutes and committee stuff.

22_11_07_14

Time for bubble bath! I feel rough! *sniff cough* Seeing as I’ve read all Xmas magazines now, I find 2 old mags to read and try and get some DIY present ideas. I love to read in the bath. You can normally find a few magazines or books tucked under my sink lol.

22_11_07_15

Finished, time for brushing teeth!

22_11_07_16

and bed time to start all over again in the morning – but it’s my last day tomorrow until I get a week off, yippee!

03-06-07_01I’ve been tossing and turning for a while, so I might as well get up now πŸ™‚ Morning everyone! Welcome to my new home! I’ve not been here long, only a couple of months πŸ™‚

03-06-07_02

First thing I do in the morning is to start tidying up. I make my bed, do the washing up from the night before if there’s any left which there’s a couple of glasses, and various other chores. I also fold the washing up and put it in the ironing basket, but now it’s computer time! I check e-mails and stuff.

03-06-07_03

Next important thing – bath and dressed! lol!

03-06-07_04

As I’m not doing any proper housework today, I scrubbed the flat last weekend, so I’ve been meaning to scrapbook my Hanson experience so I get started on that today.

03-06-07_05

These scrapbook pages take an eternity to do lol. I’ve got all my photos printed now though and my stamping, the title is completed, but this is a double page and I’ve only done a little on the first!

03-06-07_06

The rest of my photos are still drying, so I take a breather to find there’s a new episode of Taking The Walk on iTunes! “Special Delivery”… sounds awesome have to watch this! And that’s my signed copy of The Walk album from when I met Isaac, Taylor & Zac!

03-06-07_07

Mum’s just called. She’s telling me dinner will be ready for 2.15pm, but I decide now is a good time to start shutting my windows and get ready to walk on over.

03-06-07_08

I help dad on the computer for a while (he’s desperately trying to get hold of a Raleigh Chopper), and one auction is ending tomorrow, so I arrange with dad to come over after work to sit with him to see if we can grab it! Mum calls us for our dinner so we all sit in the lounge and tuck in!

03-06-07_09

Ooo, Beaches is on channel 5! But dad changes over so I don’t get to watch it long.

03-06-07_10

Taz wants some snuggles, so he jumps up on the sofa after I start to fuss over him. Mum doesn’t tell him off so soon I’m having a snuggle with both Taz and Buster lol

03-06-07_11

We’re just watching the end of “In Her Shoes” It’s like the Sunday thing for me to do now – when mum and dad don’t have any videos to watch (normally NCIS, Law and Order etc) I bring a DVD over and we sit and watch it.

03-06-07_12

I’ve now wandered on back to the flat, and mum’s come up with me. I got ironing to do before I go out, and mum’s looking over the little booklet I made earlier to go on the Hanson page. It’s photos of the scrapbook I gave to the guys when I met them.

03-06-07_13

Now I have Virgin Media and I get full control over the remote, I tend to watch a lot of TV. Loving “Home Improvements” on ABC1!

03-06-07_14

And I’ve not played Sims in absolutely aaaaaaages, so I play 1 Sim day before going back to Home Improvements lol. I’m so good at multitasking!

03-06-07_15

Now it’s Friends on E4. Awesome!

03-06-07_17

I go to my friend’s house for a little while to hang out. Forced to watch Big Brother!

03-06-07_18

Back home. I set my alarm and jump into bed. Night!

31-10-06-01

7.28 – Haha, hit my snooze button. I get far too tired and I had dance class last night and it was a late one cos we’re rehearsing for the Xmas show! Just laying in bed watching GMTV πŸ™‚

31-10-06-02

7.48 – I’m up, washed and dressed. They’re doing a poll on the TV as to whether Trick or Treating should be banned. They’ve also been discussing banning fireworks last week for Guy Fawkes night on 5th November.

31-10-06-01

7.58 – Just checking the weather before I leave. It’s going to be getting cold by the end of the week. Eek!

31-10-06-04

8.19 – Here’s my computer. And look! My top tray is EMPTY! It’s only taken me a few months to get that done lol. I make myself a hot chocolate and get straight to work πŸ™‚

31-10-06-05

11.51 – Woah, I’ve been busy! I come downstairs to cover reception which has now been moved into the skip department so I have some company as opposed to being on my own as in the old reception you were isolated from everyone. I was so hungry I went out to see the sandwich lady who comes around in her little car, and I had some BBQ mini cheddars! I discuss Halloween with the people around and they all agree with banning Trick or Treating, saying it’s an American thing anyway.

31-10-06-06

13.07 – Lunch time! Eating habits are still very much the same after all these years! lol. I’m also reading Billie Piper’s autobiography. I only bought it Sat and I’ve nearly finished. Great reading, I can’t put it down!

31-10-06-07

15.25 – Look at all my stationary with my names on them lol. They go walkies otherwise! Been quite a nice afternoon with 5 of us girlies in the office.

31-10-06-08

17.00 – home time! I wander off to my car, and get stuck in all the traffic on the way home…

31-10-06-09

17.31 – Home now πŸ™‚ Welcome to my messy desk! As you can see I’m using the cybershot and not my Nikon (which I love!) cos it’s sat on my desk. Time to check my mail and stuff. Dad said there’s been no trick or treaters (no surprise there) but he takes the batteries out of the doorbell so that we can’t hear it when they press it. I’m also under strict instructions not to open the door should anyone knock. The one night of the year everyone pretends to be out

31-10-06-10

17.40 – The fireworks are off. Guy Fawkes night on Sunday so you generally get it over a week before and a week after. Poor Taz and Buster hates those fireworks!

31-10-06-11

19.49 – I’m a little bored and thinking of things to do. I’ve not written in my journal for ages, so I decide to do a little bit of artwork in there. The quote I found at lunch time reading Billie’s book, the Paisley stamp is Purple Onion from a Self Addressed kit ages ago, and the Journalling stamp is Autumn Leaves. Had to try it out, I bought the set of stamps on Saturday πŸ™‚

31-10-06-12

19.56 – I put some food in the oven and come up for a bath. Mmm, nice relax in some bubbles!

31-10-06-13

20.29 – Man, I’ve been really hungry today. Possible because the last time I ate yesterday was lunch time cos I had dance and no time for anything else. Making up for it today though!

31-10-06-14

20.53 – Welcome to my craft area! Uh… Excuse the mess lol. This is where all the magic happens – not on the table obviously. No room lol. I’m fast running out of storage space for all my stuff! And there’s those Autumn Leave stamps I was saying about on top of the album pile next to my Yankee Candle πŸ™‚

31-10-06-15

21.27- This is my project affectionately known as “the encyclopedia”. It’s an Encyclopedia all about me, and I’ve been working on it since January. Inspired by the book “Encyclopedia of an Ordinary life” by Amy Krouse Rosenthall, and an album idea by Cathy Zielske. This has been THE scrapbooking project of the year! Parents have gone to bed and we’ve had no Trick or Treaters at all.

31-10-06-16

22.27- I upload a few more photos to this here page, then I blog very very quickly because it’s time for bed! Β Number of Trick or Treaters: 0

31-10-06-18

22.55- I finally jump into bed and set my alarm tomorrow. Dad said it’s going to be cold tomorrow just before he went to bed and told me to get up earlier. Cold? I doubt that very much

01/11/06: The temperature did in fact drop. It has been about 14 degrees C or more all week. This morning it was 3c, and highs of just 8c. Next time I will listen to my dad.

See if you can spot the recurring object…

14_10_05_01

Thank heavens it’s Friday! Switch on the TV to catch up on the news on GMTV

14_10_05_02

I’m up and ready… and off to work! Yes, parked out the stupid front again (grr @ neighbour!)]

14_10_05_03

These are the traffic lights right before work. We stopped so I could take a piccie… Someone painted smilies on the green! There’s also a postman who’s always stood at the side of the road by the Royal Mail office in his shorts in every weather. Unfortunately the traffic was moving so I couldn’t get a shot of him. Next time though! That’s work in the background – you can see all the blue from our lorries.

14_10_05_04

Parked up and walking to the building now. I start work as soon as I get in, but I’m unable to take piccies inside really.

14_10_05_05

Breakfast time! Far cry from the canteen we had at Transco, I grab a Fitness bar from my lunch box… The guys downstairs are eating their MacDonalds can you believe – a toasted deli sandwich and 2 orders of fries! But I’m being a good girl!

14_10_05_06

These are the stairs I walk up and down several times a day to get to my paper work and folders etc. I have a query so I’m off to see a colleague.

14_10_05_07

I relieve the receptionist so she can go for her lunch, so if you ever ring us between 12 and 1, you’ll be speaking to me! lol. Phones get a bit manic!

14_10_05_08

Lunch time πŸ™‚ I got my iPod and Creating Keepsakes magazine to keep me entertained along with ham and pickle sandwiches, Bacon wheat Crunchies, jaffa cakes, chocolate mousse and 2 fun sized choc bars. I sit in the back of my car for lunch and get nice and cosy… And take off my shoes and put up my feet as you can see my funky black and green socks! lol

14_10_05_09

Back to work. I love to gaze out the window sometimes… The weather is icky and grey! This is my view from MY window (yup my very own window!) It’s better when the leaves have fallen off the trees as you can see all the cars going past on the dual carriageway in front.

14_10_05_10

I spent the rest of the afternoon doing my filing downstairs πŸ™‚ I enjoy being downstairs with the guys cos they’re so funny and the drivers and customers come in and you get to say hello and meet new people. But I’m home now, looking at UKS, and I decide to look at Ali’s “top internet finds” from CK October 2005 issue. I end up playing at COLOUR IN MOTION for a while lol! Haha, and there’s Hanson’s heads poking out from behind the mag. *waves* hello Taylor!

14_10_05_11

Microwavable sausage and mash. Yum(!)

14_10_05_12

Time for a bath before I think about going to my friends house who finishes work at 8pm.

14_10_05_13

I get to my mates house and they tempt me with Thornton’s chocolates… so I finish off the packet!

14_10_05_14

I get sleepy and come home to check on my site Degraded Digital which went “live” about 8 ish. Lots of positive comments πŸ™‚ Now I’m off to sleep!

14_10_05_15

I just had a call from my mate. We had a slight falling out (another reason I came home early) but they called and we sorted it out. Now I’m really off to sleep!

Did you spot the object…?

(1st October) Mum and dad went out for the day, so Taz and Buster were sleeping in with me until they got home which was 1.30am… Dirty stop outs lol!

02_10_05_02

I’m awake now, Got my Danone drink and my vitamins to take… I love the Bassetts ones because they’re like eating sweets πŸ™‚

02_10_05_03

Haha, as soon as I finished with the vitamins etc, I started playing Sims 2! I got Nightlife and it’s so addicting. Here’s Lillith, Her sister Angela is married to Dustin and they have 4 kids: a boy Parish, 2 girls Verity and Cadence and another boy Oren.

02_10_05_04

Mum reminds me that the Christening starts at 12.15 so I better get my butt moving! Decided to “dress up” ish with some black trousers, a white top and a black blazer.

02_10_05_05

My cousin Dawn with her husband and baby πŸ™‚ We’re sat in church for the Christening. It’s nice to spend time with my mum’s side of the family, we see my dad’s side every week, but rarely mum’s side

02_10_05_06

Then we were off to the Pike for a party! Yay!

02_10_05_07

I took my other cousin’s daughter to have a look at the cake, isn’t it lovely? It was Dawn and Robert’s wedding cake!

02_10_05_08

Fooooooooooooooooooood! It’s not all for me, my mum helped me with half of it. I had the ham roll! Mmm, good old BRITISH CHIPPIES! Those chips were lush, proper English chips, not McDonald’s french fries rubbish πŸ˜‰ Big chunky chips lol!

02_10_05_09

We start to say goodbye to everyone and head off home as only mum and me went. Stewart had to go somewhere with Claire, and dad was at home in bed feeling ill. We’ll be seeing everyone again in November though, my cousin Martin’s 18th birthday, will be WELL cool!

02_10_05_10

… and back to Nightlife!!

02_10_05_11

Whoops, realise the time! I gotta get to my mate’s house but I gotta have a bath and wash my hair as the pub was all horrible and smokey… but not until I check UKScrappers first… What’s that? Doodlebug kits? *drools*

02_10_05_12

At my friends house, just finished watching Antique’s Roadshow, then it was Malcolm In The Middle, followed by Top Gear (Richard Hammond… Mmmmmm) I love that show, they played 5 a side football with cars in tonight’s show… and it’s got Rich Hammond in it! Then after that it was Mechannibals…

02_10_05_13

We carry on our TV marathon with Bad Boys! I should be going home shortly, I can’t stay up too late, I’m tired already!

02_10_05_14

I’m back home, but I had to finish it off as I was watching it already. AHHH! Look at the time, goodnight!

10_09_05_01

9:50: I suppose it’s time I get up, lol…. I actually have an alarm clock now, and a proper bedside table!

10_09_05_02

9.56: Ministry of Mayhem is on ITV so I think I’ll lay here for a while! Nan’s on holiday so I have no plans until later when I’m going to the pub.

10_09_05_03

10.40: I get up and have some coco pops, read the paper, and catch up on the soap gossip… Kat finds out this week that her husband Alfie has been seeing her sister.

10_09_05_04

11.46: I think I’ll wear this today πŸ™‚

10_09_05_05

11.56: All washed and dressed!

10_09_05_06

12.51: I’ve just been playing on the computer for ages… But I fancy going to a scrapbook shop in Brimscombe (Paperarts, they moved to a bigger shop from Minchinhampton!) Had better ask Stewart nicely if I can borrow is satellite navigation from his work van!

10_09_05_07

1.51: Got the sat nav! I had to park out the front because my neighbour is stupid and parks too far forward that I park over the garage and mum can’t get out. There’s Stewart’s work van too in front of my car.

10_09_05_08

2.56: I got here eventually! I had a nice browse around the shop – so much wonderful scrapbook goodies! And my mate called me while I was in the shop as him and Kev are already down the pub, so I’d better get back to my hometown now pronto!

10_09_05_09

3.16: Stupid sheep hold us up so we’re gonna be sat here until they move out of the way!! Ooops, just remembered I gotta get Stewart some pencil crayons, so I’m gonna go to HobbyCraft.

10_09_05_10

3.32: RUN! Run for cover! Argh! It’s raining a lot so this pic is blurry cos I’m pegging it!

10_09_05_11

4.11: The rain got a lot worse and everyone ended up stranded in Hobby Craft! The rain was so bad you could hear it in the store, but while I was stood at the door with a bunch of other people I decided I’d run to my car… Only the car park was flooded so my bag was soaked from the rain coming down and my feet and jeans are soggy from the flooded car park!

10_09_05_12

4.24: Mate’s called me at least 4 or 5 times since I was in Paper Arts so I dont stay home long, just enough time to drop off the sat nav, Stewart’s Crayola pencils and my Doodlebug papers and rubons I got in Brimscombe.

10_09_05_13

5.38: After sitting in the Turmut for ages we all decide we’re hungry so we go to the Harvester once Crystal and Richard arrives to join us.

10_09_05_15

8.41: After we’ve had our food we go to Tenpin which is just down the road from where I work! After playing on a ton of games, Rich and Crystal go home. Me and my mate head home, only to realise Kevin’s left behind!! Mate goes to pick him up only Kevin has already started walking back. At 9.30 there’s a knock at my Mate’s house – it’s Kevin!

10_09_05_16

10.28: I’m soooo tired, I’ve been driving practically ALL day! I have a cake and my tigger mug of milk.

10_09_05_17

10.50: I realised that the time was wrong on the camera lol, doh! I correct it, and I go to sleep after my candle burns out 5 mins later.

27_06_04_1

Morning! Argh, the brown box is still there… Must resist temptation to open… I know there’s red ribbon as it’s hanging out of the side at least πŸ™‚

27_06_04_2

I got up straight away to play on the computer. I’m making “elements” which are digital embellishments. I’m making a button here.

27_06_04_3

Yikes, lost track of the time. I have made 2 Digital Layouts though πŸ™‚ Just gonna wash my hair and have a bath

27_06_04_4

No parents, so I’m doing the washing an ironing. It’s looking a little dodgy outside now so I won’t be able to hang the washing out on the line (should have done that first thing this morning!) But I’m doing the ironing now, cos I’ll be damned if Stewart will even think of touching it.

27_06_04_5

Time for my roast dinner. Ok so it’s a frozen one, and you need a chainsaw to try and eat the Yorkshire puddings, which is why I’m cooking some of my own, and I’m making gravy with OXO granules. Look at me all domesticated!

27_06_04_6

Had to take a picture of Bisto seeing as I’m “mmmbisto”! *slaps hand* I know I’m not using it…

27_06_04_7

Yummy yummy πŸ™‚

27_06_04_8

Back in my room prancing around dancing around to Pat Benatar “Love is a battlefield” just like on 13 Going On 30 (Yeah, I saw that for the third time yesterday!)

27_06_04_9

While I’m waiting for mum and dad to call from sunny Spain, I play on The Sims Bustin Out as Stewart’s PS2 seems to have taken over the lounge. It’s me as a Sim, how sad am I? lol. You probably can’t see but she’s wearing glasses too πŸ™‚

27_06_04_10

At Mate’s house. Parents boasting about the weather and when I tell mum I’ll cook them something to eat the day they get back, mum asks me what they’re having and dad says in the background “Beans on Toast!” Mate’s still working on their website so I’m watching Glastonbury on TV… with no sound. Practising my lip reading!

27_06_04_11

I leave as I have things to do.

27_06_04_12

Just watching Kiss on TV. It’s “Fresh Prince & Jazzy Jeff – Summer Time” I love this song, night!

19_05_04_1

It’s Wednesday which means it’s my 8:30 start today

19_05_04_2

I have a wash and get ready. Now I’m all set to go to work πŸ™‚

19_05_04_3

Y’see I thought this was too good to be true. I get to the traffic lights and it’s quiet – too quiet! But I carried on down the road and dammit, I was stuck in traffic for 10 minutes πŸ™

19_05_04_4

I’ve been on calls for an hour. I’ve had some right loonies phone up so far. I’m taking an emergency call and so the safety advice has come up on the screen… so I’m just reading that to the caller. I finish on phones at 10.

19_05_04_5

Yippee, it’s time for breakfast! cheese and ham toastie and a Cadbury fudge! It’s a bit hectic today so far.

19_05_04_6

Sophie’s being rude with her food again lol. Steffany is messing about with the blinds in the background and I’ve just realised I haven’t taken a pic in a while (because I’m sending meter details back) so I take a pic of the first thing I see lol

19_05_04_7

Phew, lunch time finally! I have loaded potato skins with cheese and sausage. This should last me until I get home after I go into town! I’m on lunch with Tina and Sarah. It’s so nice and sunny!

19_05_04_8

Work finished. I get to my mum’s office cos I get free parking, I come in to put my contact lenses in, thn I race off to the Opticians. I wear a headset similar to my mum’s at work.

19_05_04_9

Ah-ha. Evidence…. I get home to find my room in an absolute mess and I didn’t leave it like this, this morning. And I’m missing Β£7 – Stewart’s been in here and he’s stolen some of my money!! At least he could’ve left it tidy in here, and we have the family computer downstairs – this is MY computer dammit.

19_05_04_10

I have a very quick game of The Sims, but as I’m playing I can hear clopping outside. There’s two horses going up the road!

19_05_04_11

Mum finds a job in the local paper. Everyone was not impressed as we read something in the paper about the place where we work and we not informed of it. We photocopied it and stuck it on the noticeboard, and there’s many changes going ahead and we will be made redundant, so I try finding my CV to send off.

19_05_04_12

I couldn’t actually find an up to date one so I had to re-write it, and I’ve just finished. I shut down and have a quick wash.

19_05_04_13

No time to eat, so I grab a packet of crisps and head over to my mate’s house.

19_05_04_14

Spent an hour there, but then came back to wash my hair

19_05_04_15

My poor feet after all that walking. Time to go to bed now, with soaking wet hair >.<
