If it’s good enough for Brandy, it must be good enough for me! – 1st June 1999

Tuesday 1st I’m back from London now. I didn’t take this with me for fear of somebody finding it and reading it, if they haven’t done already! So, I’ll fill you in on the last couple of days.

We only went down on Sunday (not much can have happened on Fri and Sat coz I’ve not written in) but it didn’t take too long to get there. We took Mollie [the dog] for a walk along the canal when we arrived at Auntie G’s in Hanwell and we saw some canal boats in the locks. I’ve never actually seen it done before. Mollie was walking right along the edge of the canal, I think just to scare us!

We went to Covent Garden on Sunday evening for a meal at a place called Belgo which is a weird Belgian restaurant where there are unisex loos and the waiters are dressed like monks. Mum, Dad and Auntie G had a big pot full of mussels which I didn’t want (so I had chicken) but I tried one and it was actually quite nice once I’d blanked the image of it out of my mind!

I didn’t get a lot of sleep on Sunday night coz Dad was snoring really loudly and my eye was throbbing from when a mobile phone dropped on my face from the table above me while I was settling down on a pile of cushions on the floor. I improvised and tied a pillow round my head with a belt from a dressing gown to block out the noise!

Yesterday was the big day for Watford v Bolton. I, of course, was siding with Bolton. Mum and Auntie G dropped me, Dad and Abby near Wembley Stadium and we had to walk there amongst a lot of Watford fans. It was brilliant inside the stadium! I managed to join in with all the songs but I kept quiet and seated when everyone else was singing, “Stand up if you hate Man U!” Bolton chants aren’t half as inventive as Man Utd ones. Songs in the Premiership have verses whereas you’re lucky to get 5 words in any other division. [This is untrue. I was just bitter about the Man U song.]

It was great even if we lost 2-0 and I am a Utd fan but I’ve been wearing my Bolton shirt with pride for the last day or so. I like it. It’s too big and very yellow but I like it!

[HOARDER ALERT: Here is the shirt, still too big and still very yellow.]

We went to Monty’s, an Indian restaurant, last night. It was good but very filling. I had quite a good night’s sleep last night so I’m not too tired today. We travelled back from London this morning, Bolton flags and all with Mollie hanging out of the window down the motorway. Dad said she’s probably pretending that she’s running really fast!!

I found this article in the Express newspaper.


It makes me feel better as though I’m not quite so sad now! With this thing with Adam (although I very much doubt if I’ll ever meet him never mind marry the lad!), I’ve not wanted to tell my mates I met him in the internet but if it’s good enough for Brandy, it must be good enough for me!

We kept seeing signs while we were travelling for Stoke-on-Trent and Alton Towers and I just wanted to turn off and visit Adam but then I remembered he’s visiting his brother in Lancaster.

Well, not much has really happened today. This evening I went on the net to revise and I had a mail from Adam. It was very short and all it really said was, “Where’ve you been?” He sent it on Sunday and he’d answered none of my questions from the mail I’d sent him so he might be at his bro’s although it was his mail address and everything. He should know I was in London coz I told him about 5 times! He wanted me to meet him online last night but I wasn’t here which I did put in the mail I sent him. Never mind!

I was talking to this lad called Paul who’s at Lancaster University (screenname: PLD444) who my sister’s been talking to for a while. She’s not very pleased that I was getting on with him. He’s 19 and he’s coming home tomorrow. I think he lives nearer Warrington but I know he went to our high school and college. He was with Pete Brody’s brother tonight apparently who’s going out with Ceri Brownlee, the sister of Aled. Pete Brody is in his 1st year now at 6th Form College and a lot of my mates think he’s fit. Internet Paul mentioned Aled Brownlee and Pallav C and wanted to know if I know them. I do. He’ll know Aled through his mate and Pallav through Pete B coz Pete B gets to school with Pallav. Understand?!

Anyway, this internet Paul wants to meet me in the next village. I dunno what he looks like or anything so I probably won’t. If he says he’ll be around anyway, I might just go to Hayley’s and have a wander round the village coz she knows what Pete B’s bro looks like and he’ll probably be with him.

I had a wander with Hayley tonight and we went up Welford Road. Chris Lewis and a mate (either Riley Howarth, Keith Cox or Jav R all in my sis’s year) was with him and they were hiding in a bush watching us walk past. We saw Riley in his house (no. 10) after. He’s gorgeous so I hope it was him with Chris!

This is my proof that I went to Wembley:


[I’m not sure why it says Ipswich Town on it. It was definitely Watford.]
