I really, really, really, really like him now!! – 14th February 2000

Monday 14th Wow!! Jake bought me so much stuff! It made me feel extremely stingey!

I was absolutely wetting myself about giving him my present and how he’d react. I think he was a bit disappointed actually but he didn’t say so. It was quite embarrassing when he gave me mine because a small crowd had gathered!

He came in the room with a massive plastic bag from The Discovery Store and presented me with a big red rose. Then he began to empty the contents of the bag. The first thing he got out and give me was a gorgeous white teddy bear holding a heart.

Bhakti told me later on that he and Hugo hadn’t shut up about Sarah and me when she was shopping with them and that Jake had been cuddling all the bears in the shop to see which one was the nicest! He was sat there going extremely pink in the cheeks as she was telling me this.

The bear he bought me looks something like this:-


I love it! It’s so sweet! I just feel really guilty for not getting him something more.

The next thing he got out was a red bag covered in gold hearts. Inside it was a glass jar containing a strawberry scented candle with wax in the shape of strawberries making it up and two soaps, one in the shape of a heart and another like the candle.

The gift tag on the bag was this one:


It’s a bit soppy but really, really nice what it says inside.

That gift tag was nothing compared to what it said inside the Valentine’s card he gave me.

His writing’s so nice inside that, at first, I thought it was printed in!

I bet he was really disappointed with my card because all I put inside was “Love Tessa xxx”. I did it in a rush this morning and I would have written more if I’d had time but even then I wasn’t expecting a poem off him. I get that nice feeling in my stomach every time I read it! I hope he realises how much I like him.

Later on, Sarah found a receipt in her bag from Hugo so she looked in mine and was successful in finding one: 

To be honest, I was relieved to find out that he only spent £6 on the bear!

Hugo’s beginning to scare Sarah now. He keeps phoning her and sending her messages saying he’s falling in love with her and that he wants to go further with her. He’s only ever seen the girl once!

Jake also had a call from Hugo after college and, as I was speaking to him, he asked why Jake was still at college so I asked him for Hugo and he said, “Because you’re here”. Aaaahh, so sweet! I really, really, really, really like him now!!

According to Emma, Sinead Holt in my year said that I got the biggest and best Valentine’s present in the whole college. Cool! [It more than made up for the previous Valentine’s Day.] 

I ended up getting a lift home off Mum so I had to tell her who the presents were off. She just kept smiling and says he must think a lot of me and keeps asking if he’s nice. I say yes, of course! I don’t think she realises I’m actually going out with him though.


P.S. I’ve just remembered: Jake told me that his whole Geography class was calling him stingey because Sian Dell had told them all he didn’t come to watch me in the RNCM concert yesterday. I’m bloody well glad he didn’t!
