Europe stinks! – 13th & 14th February 1998

Friday 13th – Saturday 14th I had Friday morning off and went into school with Emma. My mum took us on the way back to work. We grabbed some seats near the front of the coach at the top and left our bags there and went down to say bye to Mum.

It was boiling when we set off coz the heating was turned on and the driver didn’t know how to switch it off.

As we were leaving school, Jez said, “Tess, Dougie wants to wave you goodbye.” He must think I still fancy Dougie.


We were on the coach for ages. It was nice to get off for a bit on the ferry to Calais and it was calm too. When we got back on the coach again, we switched drivers and they knew how to turn the heaters off and put the air conditioning on.

Europe stinks! It really does. [Sorry to the whole of Europe for that sweeping statement.] Every 5 mins through France, Belgium and Germany there was some awful smell. Yuk!

Ralph and Freddie were being perverted as usual and taking the piss out of Emma all the time. They were sat behind Rachael Hollins and Georgia Dean and they wouldn’t let Rachael go to sleep. Jez then started teasing me and Ralph.

I really do fancy Ferny now and I talked to him a bit. Rani was sat behind me and in front of Ferny and she kept asking him if he liked me. He kept changing his answer and eventually said yes but I dunno if he was being serious or not.

I found out that Ferny’s birthday is on 26th March (Aries) and Jez’s address is 112 Hazel Lane. It’s some bungalow by the shops.

We arrived at the hotel in Austria in the afternoon and had to go and get our skis before our rooms. We were queuing up for hours. They wanted to know your shoe size and weight in kg. I know I’m 9 stone but I had no idea in kg. Neither did anyone so the teachers had to work it out. I had ok ski boots but these mingin’ bright pink skis. I certainly wouldn’t lose them!

When we got our keys to the rooms we only had a room for 6 and there were 7 of us. Lucy volunteered to go in someone else’s room so that was easily sorted. We unpacked and went down for tea. It looked gross but was really nice. Everyone was saying it was llama coz there were 2 in the field when we arrived and only one at tea.

After tea we kept visiting Ralph and Freddie’s room and they came down to us more. I gave Ferny a Crème Egg and told him it was a Valentine’s pressie.
