I quite like liking him – 6th November 1997

Thursday 6th Dougie wasn’t in school again today but Freddie was.

Emma said she and Hayley told Freddie about me having Ralph as my husband in that game. I don’t know if she did, she might just be winding me up.

Then, outside English after school, Hayley yelled to Ralph, “Will you go out with Tess?!” I think he said no but I nearly thumped Hayley!

I had this ski meeting tonight and you had to go with your parents so I didn’t want to. Dad and Abby came coz Mum’s been at some meeting. I got to school and Emma was waiting for me. Dad and Abby sat with Emma’s mum and I sat a few rows behind with Emma and Rachael Hollins.

More people came including Freddie. There was nobody else sitting on our row at that point and he was with his mum. He went further up the stairs from her and sat at the end of our row. I looked at him and he smiled at me. I nearly told him to come and sit with us coz he looked like he wasn’t sure if he should or not. Then I thought about Dad so I left it.


Boring meeting and I can’t be arsed explaining. Charlie W sat in front of us though.

I think I’ll give you an update on lads I like. There’s

DOUGIE but I might actually be going off him a bit. [Whaaaat?!] I still like him but he’s a bit boring. He’s funny to watch but he doesn’t mean to be. I might like him a bit more if he was a bit more enthusiastic about coming places with us. I’ve liked him for years and I quite like liking him, d’you know what I mean? I don’t really want to go off him but I can’t help it.

FREDDIE is another one that I have started to like more recently. I didn’t really know him before he came to Manchester with us. I like him coz he’s quite funny. None of my friends know I like him. Emma thinks I do but there’s a difference.

I don’t believe I’m about to write this but I actually quite like RALPH. I don’t fancy him like Dougie and Freddie, he’s more a like-as-a-friend. [Hmmmm.] Every time that ‘Do You Think I’m Sexy?‘ song by N-Tyce [It was N-Trance.] and Rod Stewart comes on it reminds me of Ralph coz he was going round Manchester singing it! He’s sort of nice (not looking) really and funny. He’s one I don’t want to fancy coz it’s embarrassing!

There are others I like but I can’t think of ’em now.
