5 tubs of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter – 29th & 30th March 1999

Monday 29th P. [Period]

I’ve only been on holiday 3 days and I’m already bored out of my mind. That’s not good coz when I get bored I usually start thinking and when I start thinking I usually find something to worry about. [Still true.]

Today it was, “Am I the only one (other than Hayley) not having fun?”

The answer is probably not but I feel as though everyone else is out partying or at least with their mates. The only thing I’ve got coming up is a date at the opticians. Ooh, fun!


Tuesday 30th My mum, Abby and I went to see my Grandma S today. We took her to Hollingworth Lake for her lunch at some chippy called Mr Thomas’s. It was quite nice and would have been better if I wasn’t feeling travel sick.

Grandma keeps giving us all money. She gave us £10 each today for no reason. I don’t know where it’s all coming from coz she keeps pulling big wads of cash out from her bag, drawers, cupboards – everywhere! Well, I’m not complaining!

We went round Rochdale with her because, even though she’s got money, she still insists on searching for bargains in the markets. We then went back to her house for tea only to discover she had 5 tubs of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter in her fridge (one of which had a use by date during 1996) along with a mouldy onion.

She was also telling us about how she was going shopping with her friend (Marjorie I think it was) but another lady (Jean, I think) who my Grandma doesn’t like has invited herself along so she’s not going to answer the phone or she’s going to say she’s ill if Jean comes coz she doesn’t want her to go with them. You’d have expected people of my age (e.g. Lindsey, Lena etc.) to do that but you would have thought by the age of 70-odd, people would’ve grown out of it!!!

Aah, she makes me laugh, Grandma.
