I kept setting fire to things – 9th January 2002 (continued)

Wednesday 9th  Jonas came round to my flat again tonight. We watched TV, listened to music then went to bed. I kept tickling him so he managed to tie my wrists together with our watch straps to stop me and tickle me back. He tried to tie me up with my school tie but didn’t quite manage.

We talked a lot after that about all sorts of stuff. He told me that he thought I wasn’t interested when we met on his birthday. He said I wasn’t speaking much and didn’t make a move (neither did he) and I kept setting fire to things in an ashtray. He said he’d had a crap day until he met me and on his way home, Sid started going on about being the best man at his wedding. I don’t think that was related to me though.

We started talking about people we’ve been with in the past. He said he’s been dumped about 9 times but that’s including when he was little. He said the last person he snogged before me was about 4 and a half months ago. He was 26 and not at uni and she took advantage of his drunken state. He said he was dumped by a girl when he was 10 cos she snogged his best mate in the cloakroom cos Jonas wouldn’t snog her due to him not knowing how to. Ahh! He said he’d fancied her for ages too.

He told me he dumped the girl who he was with for about 3 months cos he never really liked her (she stalked him) and she was a bit tarty. She cried when he dumped her and so did he cos she was. That was the girl whose horoscope he found amusing and also the longest he’s ever been with someone so far. Apparently I’m not the 2nd longest relationship he’s had. He also dumped the girl from Crewe (Natasha who’s Dave’s mate) cos she lived too far away and she hardly spoke when sober.

He asked me questions too such as when, where and who I lost my virginity to. He thought for a minute it was to him cos I wouldn’t answer and was grinning. I told him eventually that it was Jake and also he was the last person I slept with so Jonas now knows my tally and all.

Jonas said his virginity loss was a very scary experience for him. It took me a while to get him to tell me but eventually I found out it happened about 2 weeks before he came to uni (he was 17) at his cousin’s party. Someone set him up with a girl cos they said he couldn’t go to uni a virgin. Anyway, the scary bit was that he started bleeding a lot. He said he was told that it sometimes happens to lads but he said he was very upset and cried and worried for ages afterwards.

He also said he doesn’t want to dump me. GOOD!! 🙂


“I’d just settled the bugger down!” – 7th to 9th January 2002

Monday 7th  I didn’t think Jonas wanted to see me tonight but he did. 🙂 We kissed a lot more than we used to which I liked. I went round to his and he told me as we were lying in bed that I looked a bit like a girl on one of his posters. I thought she was really pretty so I was flattered already but then he said I was prettier. 🙂

Jonas went out to the toilet then came back, snuggled up and said, “Damn you!” to me whilst grinning at me. I asked why and he said, “I’d just settled the bugger down!” Cool!

He told me I’m the first girl that’s been in the bed he’s got now. That’s good!


Tuesday 8th to Wednesday 9th  P. [period]

I was a bit worried on Tuesday cos I should’ve come on my period but didn’t. I’m never normally even a day late. Not that Jonas has ever given me a reason to worry really!

I came on my period in the morning much to my relief and then had to actually get up and out of bed fairly early to meet Jen at uni so we could get some Ecology + Pollution coursework done. We weren’t very successful in that though, as usual!


It’d be easier if everyone was bald – 2nd to 6th January 2002

Wednesday 2nd  I sneaked into the spare room this morning to see Jonas. He was stroking my legs and said “spiky”. Honestly, if he keeps making little comments I’m gonna have to stop him touching me or something!

He told me it cost him £31 to get here on the train but he said he doesn’t mind cos he wanted to come and see me. 🙂

We only snogged when we were at the station. I didn’t really want him to go. He’s put George on his bag with Tigger which is nice.

He was telling me when we were reading our horoscopes that he was once going to dump a girl and her horoscope was something along the lines of that. He said he found it quite amusing apparently.

Mmm Jonas! He’s sooo nice. He’s quite gentle with me too. He kissed me on the forehead and the shoulder and cuddled me a lot. Mmm!


Thursday 3rd  Boring. Nothing worth writing happened.


Friday 4th  Not a lot happened during today but I did The Run [pub crawl] with Cat, Denny, Isaac, Rocky, Neil, Ed and Emma tonight. We all got pissed and it was fun but nothing of major interest happened.


[Me and Denny on that pub crawl. I was probably on the phone to Jonas.]

Sunday 6th Nothing much happened again yesterday but I came back to Huddersfield again today.

I went round to Jonas’s this evening cos I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to see him. I was cold at one point so he said, “Gimme a hug”. He said it wouldn’t make much difference if I was bald cos I was saying how my hair was a mess and it’d be easier if everyone was bald. When I said, “Ugh!” as I caught my reflection in the mirror, Jonas said I’m gorgeous not ugly 🙂 then he tried taking photos of me but his camera thankfully wasn’t working. He wants to keep the picture of me in my school uniform now.

Speaking of that photo, I’ve just remembered he thought he’d left it at someone’s house cos when he was at home he showed ALL his relatives because they were curious. AARRGH!!

Jonas wanted to tie me up at one point and asked if he pinned me down and distracted me would it work. It didn’t. He also asked for a kiss. He got plenty!


He made me drink an entire bottle of Lambrini or two – 31st December 2001 to 1st January 2002

We got home from Scotland in time for New Year’s Eve which I was quite pleased about because I really wanted to see Jonas and I didn’t want to miss out on what all my friends were doing. Mum took me to the station to pick Jonas up at about 5:30pm. I was going to get the bus to save him being in a confined space (i.e. the car) with one of my parents but they weren’t all running. It wasn’t too bad though cos Mum didn’t say anything to embarrass me and neither did Jonas. When he saw me in the station he said, “Yey!” and then went to relieve his bladder behind some bins.

After drinking quite a bit at my house, Michael picked Jonas and me up and we all went round to Isaac’s house for a party. There are many blank bits but from what I do remember…

  • Cat and Karen snogged right in front of Jonas (much to his pleasure).
  • I snogged Jonas lots including when he was on the phone.
  • I spoke to some of his friends/family but haven’t got a clue what I said (Jason and Emma, whoever they are!)
  • Also possibly spoke to his sister.

It’s all Jonas’s fault I can’t remember stuff cos he made me drink an entire bottle of Lambrini or two by refusing to help me get through them.

Jonas had his new lip spike in. It’s not as scary as it sounds and it was actually quite nice kissing him without the ring for a change.

I gave Jonas his Christmas presents too. It was really freaky cos he’d got me a George out of Rainbow too! Except the one he gave me was smaller but I don’t mind. I wasn’t expecting anything.

At the party, Jonas kept talking to Zack Bain for some reason. I spoke to everyone although I can’t remember what about.

Isaac very kindly let Jonas and me have the sofa bed in his room cos he decided to stay in the living room. We went to bed when people had gone home or started falling asleep. Stuff happened. I don’t remember when I fell asleep but I still had no clothes on when I woke up. Jonas kept going under the covers to see too.

When we finally decided to move and see where everyone else was, we went into the living room to find Cat and Aled Brownlee snuggled up under a sleeping bag on the sofa. I later found out she snogged him. Hah! Now she can’t take the piss out of me for snogging him!

Michael and Sarah gave Jonas and me a lift back to mine. We fell asleep on my bed pretty much straight away. When I woke up, I went downstairs to find Auntie G and Grandma S and a proper Christmas dinner. My dad was also there, complete with mangled face. I found out he’d been walking home from the pub and had slipped on the ice and fallen over. He had his hands in his pockets too therefore he landed flat on his face and skidded for a bit. Ow!!

Also, a cupboard door in the kitchen had come off and my parents nearly set fire to the house whilst trying to light a fire.

My Grandma saw Jonas and said he seems very nice. 🙂
