I was the table – 11th March 2001

Sunday 11th
3 weeks + 4 days to go!

I really couldn’t sleep last night. It was horrible! I was sort of half asleep and started thinking really surreal things. I kept waking myself up but every time I tried to sleep it happened again. It was weird! At one point, I felt like I was sat up and I was the table and other people were sat around me. Like I said, weird!

I had something similar ages ago when I felt like I was a triangle or something. That time I did have a temperature though. Maybe I’m not well now. I ended up sleeping in Mum’s bed cos I felt safer knowing someone was there. I seemed to get off to sleep fine then. This morning, I woke up feeling a bit dizzy and light-headed and I still feel a bit weird now.

Mum reckons I’ve got a bug that’s going round. She says she thinks she’s got it and some of the children and teachers at her school have it too. She says it’s one that lingers and some people have had it for about 3 weeks. She says people have been really weepy and tired but can’t sleep properly and have been stiff when they wake up. That’d make sense cos I got upset quite a bit last week, more than I normally would, and I’ve had a stiff neck when I wake up for all this week which fades as the day goes on. I’ve been really tired too but not sleeping well and I’ve got patchy bits on my tongue and had an ulcer, I think. They’re usually signs I’m coming down with something. Oh well, I hope I’m okay soon cos I don’t like whatever it is. It’s weird!

My driving lesson wasn’t too brilliant today. I was a bit wary of doing it cos I don’t feel 100% today at all but you can’t cancel this late without paying anyway. He took me around Warrington and it was all roundabouts, traffic lights and one-way systems. I kept getting confused and making silly little mistakes like forgetting the handbrake was on and stuff.

Jake phoned at about 5:30pm today which was a nice surprise cos I wasn’t expecting to hear from him until later on. He’s told me he isn’t coming home early after all. I wish he was so I am a bit disappointed. As long as he doesn’t end up staying much longer though, I don’t really mind too much!

We decided that we want to go Youth Hostelling around Scotland at some point in the summer cos we always joked about running away to Scotland together so we could be alone! I don’t know if it’ll happen cos I don’t know how much more either of us will have by then. I hope we can go though.

He told me about his Beetle and how shiny and new it apparently looks now it’s been restored. He said he really wants to be able to drive it again but that there’s not much chance of that now! He said it’s going to be famous cos some photos of it are going in a VW magazine article about the bloke who’s restoring it. Cool!

Even though Jake’s not coming home early now, he still keeps saying how much he wants to come home. I do believe him. He says he’s sort of got to stay for the full 3 months (now he’s not got the excuse of the snow melting to come home) cos he doesn’t want to seem ungrateful seeing as it’s all be paid for. I think I understand.

Uhh, I’m scared of trying to sleep again tonight. I don’t want any nasty dreamy things again cos I hate them! I hope my dreamcatcher works!

Bye!
