He’s all tanned, blonde and gorgeous – 4th & 6th September 1998

Friday 4th Oh no! I think I’m starting to like Jim Brackenhurst a.k.a. Farmer Giles. It was just in P.E. today. He’s all tanned, blonde and gorgeous. Plus Abby keeps going on about him and that’s made me think about him being alright. Then when I was walking home, a bus went past and guess who was turned around on the back seat staring at me. He must’ve been looking at me coz there was no-one else around. If anyone like Ralph finds out I like Jim, I’ll never here the end of it.

Ferny was making me paranoid in P.E. He was sat there with Mal Johansson and Gethin Turner and they were pointing in my directing and Ferny kept looking at me.

This new P.E. teacher, Mr B, is a clone of Ferny. Well, he can’t be coz he’s nowhere near as nice as the real thing. They’ve just got the same sort of features like dark hair gelled to one side, quite tall, big nose etc.

I’ve had to keep quiet about Emma and Freddie all day coz Freddie doesn’t want to tell his mates until Monday coz they’ll think he’s gone mad considering how much he was slagging her off yesterday. So he’s using today to control the skitting, I think.


Sunday 6th I went round to Emma’s today. Suzanna was there too coz her parents are away and they don’t trust her to stay at home on her own. They told me that Davis and Ed turned up yesterday and Davis and Suzanna hit it off (but she said she doesn’t like him much) and they all ended up playing strip poker. I think I’m glad I wasn’t there!

Then today, Suzanna wasn’t feeling very well coz she’s got a bad cold and Davis and Freddie turned up. We all walked in the direction of Ed’s house. Emma and Freddie couldn’t make it obvious that they were going out again coz Suzanna doesn’t know and if she did she’d only tell Connor [Oh aye, I forgot Emma was going out with Connor. Did that even last 48 hours?!] and everyone in town thinks she’s a bitch for dumping Connor like that anyway.

So, Freddie talked to me quite a bit and was walking with me a lot of the time and told me that I had to go to the garage with him and Suzanna We all ended up going.

Just as we were getting close to Ed’s, we met Ned Arncliffe and Az Hart and they stopped to talk to Freddie. They were talking about stuff that Ed and Si Grimmer had got up to in the past and it was pretty sick so we ended up phoning Ed to say we weren’t coming.

So, instead, we all ended up wandering round the village. We kept meeting Si and Ned and at one point they were talking about Jim Brackenhurst (who I think they’re mates with) and they were saying about how much he fancied Roxanna. Never mind. I’m pretty used to the fact now that everyone I like fancies someone else.
