I’m awake early again. My alarm is due to go off in 5 minutes how annoying >.<
All ready now, time to go to work 🙂 This is my baby – the new car I got for my 21st. Well half of it because I paid for the other half 😉 So this is my half you’re looking at, the drivers side!
I came to work and sat with Craig on dispatch before I started work. I check the rota and I’m scheduled in to take Gas Emergency calls until 9:30 (boo!) “Good morning, Transco Gas Emergency Service, how may I help you?” I’ve been told I don’t sound old enough to even be working, and that I sound 12 years old!
Asha, myself and Sedem all went to breakfast, so here’s the remaining food lol It’s OK, I start my diet next week!
Everybody hard at work: Ros, Sedem, Nigel (Asha who’s hiding!) but not Sophie and John lol! They pose for the camera for me 🙂
It’s lunch time. I’m running low on credit so I needed to come to Tesco to get some more, so I offer to do a Tesco run for anyone who wants anything. Sedem and Asha come with me (Asha does a runner when I pull my camera out) so I’m following Sedem to get our “shopping list” for work.
I have my credit now, and I got some choccy and a sandwich 🙂 but it’s back to work
lol, Sophie loves to sniff her Post-Its all day 🙂 A guy called Rob (stood behind her) came over to chat to Nigel. She’s found that Pink Post-Its smell better than Yellow ones!
Vroom Vroom! Triggy bought me and Sophie and Kinder Surprise Egg one day and I got a bright pink car in it (Sophie got a jigsaw which is on her desk) but I’m not too keen on pink so I painted the car with tippex. Sadly, I play with it while I take emergency calls so the tippex is coming off!
Well, I finished work and drove home and quickly went on the family computer, as I don’t have access to the internet now in my room. I come and have a bath 🙂
Snow! It’s going to snow tonight! Yessssssssssssss! Oh no wait – Noooo! I have work again tomorrow! It’s gonna be -3!
I went to my Mate’s house, but we have a lot of things to sort out so I didn’t take any pictures. I come home and luckily the dogs are outside which means parents are just about to go to bed, so I manage to sneak in.
I set the alarm… and put it on charge lol. Night night!
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 degraded.org 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!
It’s our first morning here in Egypt. We got here last night. I had a drink of coke last night before bed from the bar, hence the cup!
Better get up and have a shower 🙂
Right, I’m all ready with my bikini underneath my clothes, hehe.
This is the pathway to get to the main hotel building, our room is separate. On my way to get breakfast!
I grab the chocolate donuts of course! I dunno what that red drink was but after a while it wasn’t very nice lol. I drank it anyway, but I shan’t be having it again I don’t think…
Right, our welcome meeting was meant to be at either 10am or 11am, Mustafa (our rep) couldn’t make up his mind on the coach last night, haha! We go and check it out but we realise it’s at 11 so we sit at the bar and have a few drinks before it starts
We have our excursions list. We decide we want to do “Ras Mohammed National Park” on Sunday and the “Bedouin Evening” tomorrow night. Riding camels – should be fun! The Bedouins are the “People Of The Desert” 🙂
Now we’ve finally finished with the welcome meeting and booking the trips and all, it’s time for some FUN! I’ve got my towel and stuff so I can go to the pool 🙂
I sit down for a moment to see this guy making sand pictures in bottles. A girl was watching him, so I decide to go over and watch myself 🙂 It’s pretty nifty!
Better not overdo the sun today, so we head back to our room. I’m pretty tired too, so I’ll just have a little nap watching BBC World…
Yikes! More than a little nap! I must admit I woke up a few times and watched “Full House” and “Friends” I’ve just had a shower now I’d better dry my hair
Time for Tea! This is our HILTON bracelet/tag things we have to wear for our All Inclusiveness hehe.
After dinner, we head to the pool bar. I stick to Fanta Orange! lol. It isn’t long before those 2 empty chairs get filled and we get chatting to a couple from Guernsey
*yawn* Believe it or not, I’m still really tired, so I’m heading back for an early night.
I finished work today (12th) and was picked up by my uncle. Tomorrow I’m going to be chief bridesmaid for my cousin Sarah’s wedding! (far left)
We had been out for a meal, watched TV and drunk wine, but we decided to go to bed, cos we had to be up early!! Me and Leanne (other bridesmaid) had to share a bed in the back bedroom.
I didn’t sleep very well. I woke up at 5:10am and manage to get to sleep again before both me and Lea woke up.
Sarah had her first phone call to wish her luck, it was our Nanny Irene. We just sat around watching cartoons 🙂
Mmmm! Times for breakfast! Sarah cooked us sausages in a roll. Delicious!
Had to start getting ready by this time! Sarah’s friends were our hairdressers for the day and they were due at 9:30!
Leanne’s shot of me going into the bathroom!
Our flowers turned up, brought by the groom’s parents. The flowers were gorgeous! We put Sarah’s bouquet in the sink and mine and Lea’s in a bucket to keep them fresh until we needed them…
The hairdressers still hadn’t arrived. This is me talking to my mum on my mobile phone! She was wishing us all luck.
The hairdressers coming up the drive. Boy were we glad to see them!
They start on Sarah’s hair, before doing ours and then finishing hers off
Now our hair is done, it’s time to have a quick drink of wine! We had just over an hour before the Rolls Royce picked me and Leanne up
Soo and Uncle Mark come to see us. I took this shot from the stairs.
We all have to start getting dressed now and add our finishing touches before the car comes. This is Sarah’s dress… But you can’t see it 😉
** Sadly I couldn’t take any pictures after this, as we had a mad rush on to get ready, and I couldn’t take my camera with me. I gave it to the hairdresser to take care of until the Reception. Me and Lea went past the market in the Rolls and it was market day so everyone was staring at us 🙂 We pulled up at the church, shortly followed by the bride and her father (uncle Mark). The ceremony went great and I had to be a witness. From there the bride and groom went in the Rolls to the Reception and me and Lea went in Uncle Mark’s Car, complete with ribbons, through the town center **
My brother, my cousin Leanne and my cousin Craig at the reception. Everyone else was at the bar getting in the drinks! We were waiting to be called to have pictures taken. My and Leanne already had a load of pictures done at the wedding.
This is me in my dress with my Tiara and my bouquet! I was very proud!
Finally we get called outside by the marquee to have pictures done. This is our 5 Generations picture. My great nan, My nan, My uncle Mark, cousin Mike and his baby daughter Morgan.
I couldn’t resist this candid pic of my bro holding Soo’s handbag! After this everyone had to stand facing the building. There was a small hill which the photographer stood on and captured everyone who attended the wedding. We also had full family pictures done. I look forward to seeing those!
The head table! My chair is on the end, next to Leanne, the groom’s mother, my uncle Mark, Sarah, Kevin, Groom’s father, Soo and finally the best man on the end. We had a huge 3 course meal, and as soon as you took a sip of your wine a waiter was back topping it up!
Sarah and Kevin cutting the cake 🙂
Argh! The reception went on a bit longer than everyone expected, not that we were complaining! But we had to race back to our hometown ready to catch the minibus back to the party!
We got home, and Stewart wanted his picture taken for his Fiancé Claire. I dropped my bouquet off and my presents (I got a Tatty Teddy (metoyou) bear as a bridesmaid saying “Special Bridesmaid” and a bottle of champagne!)
We found our table back in the marquee and started to drink and have a great time!
Holy! It’s Charlie from Busted! Haha, nope this is a guy called Eddie (Didn’t get the chance to talk to him) He doesn’t look so much like him in this pic but if you stood and watched him, you’d swear it was! Kevin took this picture for me as I didn’t have the guts to go and ask him for a picture.
Time for the bride and groom to have their dance. They chose Shania Twain’s “From This Moment”, lol, I almost cried!
This is my step-cousin Tim, posing for the camera! I was exhausted after all that dancing, so I sat and chatted with everyone when Tim came to chat with Stewart and my dad. Not long after this, I got back up on the dancefloor but I hurt my ankle somehow 🙁
*sob* The party finished at 1am, so we all had to jump back on the mini-bus to go home. Leanne, My Aunty Jayne, Tim, Becky, Craig and a little bit of Mike in that pic!
Finally, over an hour later I get back home and hang up my dress and jump into bed. It’s been a great day, but sadly it had to come to an end…
Time to get up!
Got ready and it’s time to jump in my car
I arrive at work, got my muffin and orange drink. This is my new desk! We moved here last week.
Asha and Terry are in. One of these Grinds, I will catch her! lol
I got a bit bored (I have a short attention span) and I play with the Tweenie I got from my Happy Meal a few weeks ago. My battery ran out on my CD player, so I take them out and make him skate between them! lol
Breaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaakfast! Got bacon, hash brown, sausage and beans.
Lunch time now. Sat down and put a ton of jobs on so I didn’t fancy taking any pics of that! I’m sat with Sarah. Kelvin’s on holiday.
Few minutes to spare so we go for a walk outside seeing as it’s so nice. The only place to walk though is the car park 😉
If only my days seem to go this fast! It’s time to go home now, but before I do I swing by Dispatch.
Stewart’s on the computer (he just ran off somewhere!) so I sit on my bed
Taz wants to play!
But he soon gives up and has a belly rub instead 🙂
I fell asleep cuddled up to Taz but got up for my tea. Guess what it is? Chicken Kiev.
Seeing as Stewart has gone, I play on the computer. Just do normal stuff and work on my shop. Like the Heath Ledger wallpaper? 😉
Hehe, listening to Evanescence! And singing along to the lyrics in the booklet.
Time for a bath but my parents are going to bed so I can only be 5 minutes.
Surprise, Stewart comes back and gets me off the computer. I tell him I need to be on just after 10. He stays on til 10:15.
Finish watching TV and it’s time for bed! Goodnight!
Hmph. Can’t sleep, so I try my relaxation machine thing. I fall asleep to a very dim blue light, going slightly light and dark to the sound of waves washing up on the shore…
11:29: I don’t usually go to bed this late, usually it’s at 10:30. I was working on my computer. I set my alarm on my Psion. Night everyone!
06:52: Time to get up! Psion goes off and I turn on the TV to GMTV.
06:59: I picked out my clothes just before I went to bed so it’s just a case of putting them on. I also have a habit of throwing stuff on the floor just before I sleep, hence the books, CDs and CD player still there!
07:04: Here’s all the stuff I need to get ready… Got my hair brush, scrunchie and clips, body spray, tooth brush & paste and finally my facial wipes.
07:14: All ready to go to work and plenty of time to spare. I leave my house at 7:25 every morning.
07:35: Typical! Stuck in traffic! It has only taken me about 10 minutes to drive from my house to here, and I’m almost at work!
07:47: Having said that, I got stuck at the next set of traffic lights, and then the set after that, so it added an extra 10 minutes! Here’s my desk all nicely tidy(ish) just how I left it yesterday 🙂
I realised the time was set wrong on the camera so changed it to the right time. This is my breakfast – mini jaffa cakes, Galaxy Muffin (mmmmmmmm) and an orange drink from the vending machine. It’s on free vend!
No work has come through e-mail so mess about with our figures and stuff for Cross Meters (how many jobs received etc). I took it upon myself to do weekly and monthly graphs and write a small report (what I’m doing in the pic) about the workload received.
** The stupid batteries ran out on my camera! At 10am I went for breakfast and got some mini Cheddars, creme egg and my usual bottle of Cherry Coke. I didn’t eat them as Peter bought in cakes because it was his birthday. I then got a few jobs through and I put them on. Lunch is at 12:15 for me so I ask everyone if they want anything because I needed to go to Tescos to get some batteries. Only Kelvin wants something and I make a list for him! lol **
I got all the stuff except Kelvin’s roll. I also got a few extras 🙂 There was a van parked next to me with a cute dog in it and I tried to get a pic but I guess he was camera shy cos he ran off to the back of the van!
It was raining slightly (hence windscreen wiper! lol) and I’m here driving up to the barrier to get into work. I have my card ready to get in
As soon as I walk in the door, Kelvin is sat on the chairs! I give him his drink. Doesn’t look too impressed with me taking a picture >.<
I see Asha as soon as I get back to my desk. She tries to hide behind her monitor so I can’t see her!
A few more jobs come in for me to do! YAY! That’ll keep me busy for a while
I catch Terry, Asha and Sophie in mid conversation, ironically about work 🙂
I finish the few jobs that came in and I go over to talk to Sophie as I always do. She poses with her Miss Piggy for me. She got it from McDonald’s.
There’s the birthday boy! This is Peter. He generally keeps to himself and plods on with his work. Kelvin is with Jo in the background.
Sophie insists on taking my picture with Kermit, lol. I got him on a trip during lunch to McDonald’s down the road.
This is my lunch. I have cake, An Aero, Mars Bar my creme egg and Mini Cheddars from breakfast I didn’t eat and Baked Bean flavour Monster Munch. I eat everything except the Mini Cheddars, cake and Mars Bar.
I should start my own stationary set, what do you think? lol! I keep my stationary in that big box so no one will steal it and the box labelled “Box” has my stapler in it.
YAY! One whole job for me!
Asha works part time so she’s off home. She saw my grab my camera and she goes to run off 🙂
Break time! Little late though. We have set breaks and I was supposed to take mine at 2:40. I work on my cross stitch of Tigger.
Another cake from Peter. This time I have a jam donut.
Home time! I’m a bit late going because I was stood talking to Kelvin who’s trying to make a sharp exit out of the picture over there on the right! Sophie waves goodbye to me.
I’m home after sitting traffic for a little! We have speed bumps in our neighbourhood, and I went over one and Nodding Dog’s head came off!!
Buster and Taz are sat on my bed to say hello to me 🙂 Buster looks a bit guilty for my liking…
While I sit waiting for an eternity for Stewart to finish in the stupid bathroom, I watch “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Live”
Time to wash my hair and stuff! I work on my websites and stuff…
… and totally lose track of time! CRAP! I’m supposed to be at my mates!! Time to shut down, lol.
He saw me coming and opened the door for me. Spot of rain on the camera there.
This is me peeling off the label from my bottle of Cherry Coke cos he’s collecting the tokens. I don’t want my pic taken though so I hide lol. My hair is still soaking wet too.
Top Of The Pops is on. Macy Gray’s in the picture. Busted are at the end of the show because they’re number one 🙂
Now it’s time for Eastenders! Phil’s talking to Sharon about her brother Dennis.
I personally think this show is soooooo under rated!! It’s called “My Family” I love it!!
“Lenny Henry In Pieces” comes on. This is near the end, my favourite part of the show – the polar bear animation! That polar bear is putting an egg next to the other one and it wakes up and thinks it’s given birth to an egg. It hatches and it’s actually a crocodile, and it bites him, and he throws his arms about and then the croc goes flying. The mother polar bear says: “It’s the hardest thing about being a parent… knowing when to let go…” I’m creasing by now! HAHAHA! It was very funny!
I go home and I play on my computer and drink some chocolate milk 🙂 Desk is a bit messy though >.<
Bit late now, so I shut down the computer.
PJs and my hair brush 🙂
Good night everyone 🙂
See if you can spot the recurring object…
Morning 🙂 Sorry, I’ve been awake quite a while. I’ve watched “Brace Face”, “Don’t Blame The Koalas”, “Revelations” and now “Spring Break Live” is on. Only watching this cos Busted are meant to be on it.
Argh! Go away, I’m still in bed, lol. Here’s me in bed, hiding from the camera watching TV!
I decide I can listen out for Busted whilst playing on my computer. Like the Mattie wallpaper? lol I also got a webcam yesterday. I quickly go to the bathroom to have a wash and brush my teeth.
I need to work on my Mattie layout for Starsandmoon and sort out my webcam pic. I couldn’t do the highlights in Mattie’s hair so I give up! lol.
Mum calls me for dinner but I scoff it down cos I was hungry, and I forgot my camera! So here’s a picture of tomorrow’s dinner for my parents, minus the gravy. I had mash potato, roast potato, Chicken, carrots, mushy peas, Yorkshire pudding, and sage and onion stuffing 🙂
Had better get dressed. It’ll save me later if I have to go to my mate’s house or not. I grab the first pair of jeans, and first top I pull out of the wardrobe. I can’t be bothered!
After 2 hours of messing about, the layout looks a bit better. It’ll do haha. I’m drinking some summer fruits pop (soda for you Americans!) And I got a good picture of my left foot too!
I start messing about with Flash now. I got a great picture of Mattie that I took a screen shot of from my Busted single, and rotated it so it looks a bit more square. I’m slowly figuring out how to use this. I manage to get a stop button actually WORKING! Go me!
Mate tells me not to go over, so I check out my forum haunts, and have an early night myself. By the looks of it I was at Laundromatic.net forums here!
Here’s a game I downloaded from one girl’s site I stumbled upon. It was a really good site as well! This game you have to build a house and it reveals more about your personality. My reading came back and it was quite spot on!
Mmmmmmmmm Dairy Milk bar. Gotta eat some more of this. I’ve only eaten my Roast Dinner all day!
Don’t I look so happy!? It got cold so I put on a jacket and it got dark as well, which is odd. I’m looking at a few sites still. I felt a bit tired by now, and I got up late!
Here’s a sneak peek at my Littlesocks collective layout (Once the stupid scrolling works!!) It’s got Taz and Buster on. It’s gonna be a bit big for 800×600 peeps though. My Image Dicer just will not work on this computer! Grr! It’s one big fat image to have to load o.O Eek!
Ok, everyone’s gone to bed now, so I grab a chicken (left over from the roast dinner earlier) and salad cream sandwich and some Chocolate milk. Odd combination I know!
Time to switch back to my PJs and eat my food!
Good Will Hunting is on TV. I’ve got to get up early in the morning for work, so I’m gonna drink my milk and sleep. Goodnight! What a boring and non-productive day lol! I’ve barely left my room
So what was the object…?
My Busted album!
11:22: Resting on my Teddy Bear behind the pink bag to the right of the computer, in it’s usual spot 🙂 I always keep it here
17:01: Peeking from behind my monitor
18:17: Below my Dairy Milk Bar
21:14: On the worktop by my Choccy Milk
21:30: Resting on my lava lamp
Good morning party people! It’s the weekend! I wake up and turn on the TV to watch SM:TV Live. Hehe, I got my first Capri-Sun of the day too.
We always go to my nan’s house at around midday, so I’d better get my hair washed and dried!
Ahhhh! My parents tell me that we’re leaving soon so I have to get dressed and ready right now! I pick out my “Star” hooded top, denim skirt and my brown striped top. That brown envelope is my letter from Dubai which mum gave to me as she told me to get dressed.
This is the shops. It’s just down the road from my house. We’ve got a Post Office, Off License, Hair Dressers, Fruit & Veg shop, chip shop, local Happy Shopper, Pharmacy… Everything we need! Behind me is a block of flats. We used to live there until I was 4.
It takes literally 5 minutes to drive to my nan’s house. She lives on the otherside of our neigbourhood. We’re about halfway there already – especially with the way my dad drives!!
Hehe, Felix opens her eyes for the camera! It’s a shame I want to sit down, but I’ll just sit on the floor until someone has finished eating.
My Nan always puts on a spread of food for us all. We have cake, chocolate, crisps and sandwiches! Sat at the table is my mum (In blue), My Great Nan (She’s over 90!) and my Uncle Mark’s girlfriend Soo, who’s managed to escape the picture! Everyone has their cup of tea, but Nan gives me a Capri-Sun.
You’ve come on the right day I think!! Next to my Great Nan is my cousin Mike. I haven’t seen him in months! My cousin Craig is the one stood up, I saw him last Saturday but he hasn’t been to my Nan’s in months either. Sat in the chair is Mike’s girlfriend. I’ve literally just met her too. She’s pregnant and due any day now! Stood behind her is my infamous Nan, and escaping behind her is my Uncle Mark!
After a lot of catching up, and eating (I had 4 sandwiches, a handful of crisps, some chocolate, Cake, and sausage rolls!) Soo comes home with us to work on her CV with mum. They didn’t want any pictures taken. So I sit down and watch episode 2 of Taken (For the 7th time!)
Taken finished and now I’m hungry! Let’s look in the fridge… I’d better eat something healthy if I’m off to the Gym soon! Oooooo, I still have 2 Capri-Suns left…
I choose some bread sticks and some dips, and drink a Capri-Sun. It’ll keep me going for a bit! But mum comes out and tells me it’s too late to go to the gym. It’s a shame cos I had to go to the cash point and withdraw some money to pay her for my rent.
I didn’t fancy going to Safeway BP garage on my own! Not with the amount of money I needed to withdraw! So mum offers to come with me. She enjoys driving my car so I let her! Hehe. We’re making our way up to the traffic lights. On the way back we stop off and get some petrol (£15 worth) to fill my tank. I sneakily buy 2 Cadbury’s Creme Eggs – one for me and one for dad.
We get back home to find my dad doing some DIY. He bought a ceiling fan cheap from Argos and he’s trying to fix it and watch the Rugby on TV. If you see the door handle, that blur is my dad!
I get a little bored so I go on the internet and check out windows forum. Not much is happening, except talking about the shuttle in Texas.
Hey! Cribs is on MTV. I must be some sort of Cribs marathon cos I saw it on when I was eating my bread sticks and dips. It’s Sisqo… Stewart’s probably seen this one already…
Seeing as we didn’t go to the gym, I decide to have some pizza, with my last Capri-Sun. Mum cooked herself and dad something, but I was already cooking my pizza. I go into the lounge and eat it while watching Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. Dad didn’t like his meal, so as soon as mum leaves the room, he’s eating my Pizza!!
Ant & Dec have finished on TV. Very funny programme as usual! I’m gonna get dressed for bed, seeing as I’m not going anywhere now 🙂
Hey, you caught me half an hour in to Taken episode 4 on BBC 2. Jesse’s just got to the hospital… I’ve seen this episode about 3 or 4 times now
As soon as Taken finished on BBC 2, the next episode starts on BBC Choice. (This will then be shown on BBC 2 next Saturday) Wow, including this episode, I’ve seen 4 and a half hours of the programme today alone! (Episodes 3, 4 & 5) What can I say, I’m a fan!? This one is much better that number 4!
*yawn* I’m tired now. Taken’s just finished, so I’m gonna sleep now. I stare at my poster of James Kirk (Teenage Jesse episodes 2 & 3 – see if you can spot where it is!) and I drift off to sleep…
Good morning 🙂 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 🙂 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 🙂
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 🙂 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 🙂 The middle window and the window on the right are mine 🙂 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 🙂 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.
