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)

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!

02_10_05_01

(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!

25_12_03_1

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

25_12_03_2

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!

25_12_03_3

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 πŸ™‚
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!!

25_12_03_4

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 πŸ™‚

25_12_03_5

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.

25_12_03_6

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!

25_12_03_7

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 πŸ™‚

25_12_03_9

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!

25_12_03_10

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!

25_12_03_11

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

25_12_03_12

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!

25_12_03_13

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

25_12_03_15

I got a message from my mate to say I can go over whenever. These are my presents πŸ™‚ 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!!

25_12_03_16

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 πŸ™‚

25_12_03_17

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

25_12_03_18

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 πŸ™‚

25_12_03_19

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!

13_09_03_1

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)

13_09_03_2

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.

13_09_03_3

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.

13_09_03_4

Sarah had her first phone call to wish her luck, it was our Nanny Irene. We just sat around watching cartoons πŸ™‚

13_09_03_5

Mmmm! Times for breakfast! Sarah cooked us sausages in a roll. Delicious!

13_09_03_6

Had to start getting ready by this time! Sarah’s friends were our hairdressers for the day and they were due at 9:30!

13_09_03_7

Leanne’s shot of me going into the bathroom!

13_09_03_8

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…

13_09_03_9

The hairdressers still hadn’t arrived. This is me talking to my mum on my mobile phone! She was wishing us all luck.

13_09_03_10

The hairdressers coming up the drive. Boy were we glad to see them!

13_09_03_11

They start on Sarah’s hair, before doing ours and then finishing hers off

13_09_03_12

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

13_09_03_13

Soo and Uncle Mark come to see us. I took this shot from the stairs.

13_09_03_14

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 πŸ˜‰

** 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 πŸ™‚ 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 **

13_09_03_15

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.

13_09_03_16

This is me in my dress with my Tiara and my bouquet! I was very proud!

13_09_03_17

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.

13_09_03_18

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!

13_09_03_19

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!

13_09_03_20

Sarah and Kevin cutting the cake πŸ™‚

13_09_03_21

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!

13_09_03_22

We got home, and Stewart wanted his picture taken for his FiancΓ© 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!)

13_09_03_23

We found our table back in the marquee and started to drink and have a great time!

13_09_03_24

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.

13_09_03_26

Time for the bride and groom to have their dance. They chose Shania Twain’s “From This Moment”, lol, I almost cried!

13_09_03_27

Let’s boogey!!

13_09_03_28

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 πŸ™

13_09_03_29

*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!

13_09_03_30

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…

23_06_03_1

Time to get up!

23_06_03_2

Got ready and it’s time to jump in my car

23_06_03_3

I arrive at work, got my muffin and orange drink. This is my new desk! We moved here last week.

23_06_03_4

Asha and Terry are in. One of these Grinds, I will catch her! lol

23_06_03_5

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

23_06_03_6

Breaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaakfast! Got bacon, hash brown, sausage and beans.

23_06_03_7

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.

23_06_03_8

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 πŸ˜‰

23_06_03_9

If only my days seem to go this fast! It’s time to go home now, but before I do I swing by Dispatch.

23_06_03_10

Stewart’s on the computer (he just ran off somewhere!) so I sit on my bed

23_06_03_11

Taz wants to play!

23_06_03_12

But he soon gives up and has a belly rub instead πŸ™‚

23_06_03_13

I fell asleep cuddled up to Taz but got up for my tea. Guess what it is? Chicken Kiev.

23_06_03_14

Seeing as Stewart has gone, I play on the computer. Just do normal stuff and work on my shop. Like the Heath Ledger wallpaper? πŸ˜‰

23_06_03_16

Hehe, listening to Evanescence! And singing along to the lyrics in the booklet.

23_06_03_15

Time for a bath but my parents are going to bed so I can only be 5 minutes.

23_06_03_17

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.

23_06_03_18

Finish watching TV and it’s time for bed! Goodnight!

23_06_03_19

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…

01_02_03_1

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.

01_02_03_3

We always go to my nan’s house at around midday, so I’d better get my hair washed and dried!

01_02_03_2

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.

01_02_03_4

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!!

01_02_03_11

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.

01_02_03_12

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.

01_02_03_13

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!

01_02_03_14

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!)

01_02_03_15

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…

01_02_03_16

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.

01_02_03_17

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 (Β£15 worth) to fill my tank. I sneakily buy 2 Cadbury’s Creme Eggs – one for me and one for dad.

01_02_03_18

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!

01_02_03_19

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.

01_02_03_22

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…

01_02_03_23

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!!

01_02_03_24

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 πŸ™‚

01_02_03_25

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

01_02_03_27

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!

01_02_03_26

*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…

31_12_02_1

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!

31_12_02_2

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

31_12_02_3

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

31_12_02_4

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™‚

31_12_02_5

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

31_12_02_6

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

31_12_02_7

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.

31_12_02_8

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…

31_12_02_9

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!

31_12_02_10

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…

31_12_02_11

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!

31_12_02_12

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.

31_12_02_13

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…

31_12_02_14

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.

31_12_02_15

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!

31_12_02_16

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.

31_12_02_17

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

31_12_02_18

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.

31_12_02_19

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.

31_12_02_20

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

31_12_02_21

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

31_12_02_22

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)

31_12_02_24

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.
