New Year


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 🙂


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.
