He’s still a bit pissed from last night – 28th February 2001

Wednesday 28th
5 weeks + 1 days to go!

Sarah’s being really daft! Michael’s been texting her and stuff but she still wants Maz, a gimp she was seeing ages ago. He never contacted her and now someone is, she’s complaining! I don’t get it!

I got this letter from Michael this morning. →

I like getting letters. It was weird seeing those photos too cos I’ve not seen those particular ones before.

Jack phoned me at about 4:50pm today. He told me he’s not intending on skiing today cos he’s still a bit pissed from last night apparently! He said he’s still got to go to Lake Louise though to get some award for passing Level 1 so he says he might try and get a bit of a tan while he’s there cos it’s gone really sunny. He mentioned again about bleaching his hair so maybe he really will do it!

Bye!

Rescued from creepy lads! – 20th February 2001

Tuesday 20th
6 weeks + 2 days to go!
(Until Jake gets back) 🙂

Hello!!! I can’t believe I’ve had 20 diaries before this one! It doesn’t seem like 2 minutes since I started my first one when I was about 13!

I’ve not done very much during the day today other than attempt to cut Mollie’s (our dog) hair with Mum and then go to the hairdressers myself. I just had it trimmed and had blonde streaks done again but it looks quite a lot lighter than it has done in the past.

I went into Warrington tonight with my friends Sarah, Lizzie and Karen. We all met up in Edison’s to start with and got a few drinks there before moving on to Churchill’s. Edison’s had been quite lively (although I’m sure half the people in there were only about 14!) but Churchill’s was pretty much dead! We just had one drink there before going back to where we started.

Abby’s (my sister) boyfriend, Connor, was in there by then with his mate from kickboxing, Chris, who’s a bit thick! Those 2 stuck with us for the rest of the night and Sarah and Chris ended up getting together.

Connor and I just sort of stuck together because neither of us are single so we couldn’t go off with other people like all my friends we doing. I’m glad he was there actually cos I’d have been stuck on my own nearly all night otherwise!

We eventually went to Mr Smith’s (a club) and stayed there for the rest of the night. I just danced most of the time and I was always on hand if any of my mates needed to be rescued from creepy lads!

Connor was driving so he saved us money by giving me and Sarah a lift back to my house.

I sent Jake/Jacob/J (My boyfriend! That’s the selection of names he has so I might use different ones when I’m writing about him!) a 2nd email when I got in. I had quite a bit to drink which made typing a bit difficult! I sent him one this afternoon too cos I wouldn’t have been able to speak to him on the phone if he rang from Canada cos I’ve not really been in all day.

Bye!

Rory ended up cuffed to a fence – 26th January 2001

Friday 26th
9 weeks + 6 days to go!

College was boring today this morning so I didn’t mind having to go to John Moore’s Uni later on, even if it was during my free periods. My Sports Studies group all had to go and use the library there for research to help with our coursework but, cos Miss P’s a thick bitch and forgot to check beforehand if she could take us, she left it too late and wasn’t allowed so we had to make our own way there. Rachael Hollins and Tanya Potter were driving but all we had to go by were some crappy directions that Miss P wrote down so we ended up getting completely lost!

When we finally found it, nobody really knew what sort of stuff we needed to research cos there was no teacher with us. We just made use of the rip-off photocopiers (7p per sheet!) and went to find a chippy and then came home!

Jake phoned me at the normal time (about 4:30ish) today but, again, didn’t really have much to tell me! I think I prefer that cos if he was going on for ages about what a good time he’s having then I’d just get really jealous and worry he won’t want to come home. Hang on, I’m doing that already!

A load of us did The Run [a pub crawl] again tonight and, again, it was quite good! I stuck with Cat and Suzie mainly, like I did last week cos everyone else seemed to be pairing off.

Karen looked like such a whore! She was wearing her dog collar (as in one from a pet shop, not the church kind!) and brought her whip and handcuffs too! Rory ended up cuffed to a fence with Karen cracking her whip near him!

Run - Karen in control

Other stuff happened but I’ve mentioned it all in the 2nd email to Jake. [See the emails after my daily ‘Bye!’]

Sarah was following Gethin round like a little sheep again. That worries me cos I don’t want her fancying him again just because she’s FINALLY decided to give up on Maz. She needs to find a lad who lives around here and who isn’t gay!

Cat needs to find a lad that’s a bit similar to our age and who isn’t a teacher!

I know all that’s easier said than done though! Good relationships always seem like something that happens to other people when you’re single too! Before I met Jake, I thought I was never going to find anyone and even now I still can’t quite believe that I did! I tell that to people like Sarah and Cat [yet they shockingly didn’t punch my smug little face] but they still think there’s no way it’ll happen to them. I hope it does!

I still don’t feel all that lucky at the moment cos Jake’s away but everyone keeps saying I should just be glad I’ve got someone, even if he’s not in the same country. I am really but it’s still in the back of my mind that something bad could happen to him and I’ll never see him again. I know that’s really negative but I can’t help it!

I miss him sooooo much!!!

Bye!

Everyone hates Hayley – 5th January 2001

Friday 5th A big group of us did The Run [a pub crawl] tonight and I discovered that everyone hates Hayley cos she’s been such a bitch to everyone.

The Run

[Left to right: Hayley, Cat, me, Jake, Floyd, Karen, Lizzie and Gethin.]

Sarah told me that when we went for a Chinese, Hayley had told her in the toilets that once Jake’s gone, I’ll try and muscle in on their friendship! Bitch! I don’t like her now either!

Jake got really, really pissed and was hugging everyone (he even managed to fall on the floor with Maisie!) and stuff. He started falling asleep in his Chinese when we got back to mine and I got photographic evidence!

Takeaway

[The photographic evidence.]

He stayed at mine and if he hadn’t have been so drunk I think something could’ve happened but he just fell asleep!

Bye!

A pub not a youth centre – 4th January 2001

Thursday 4th We all had to go back to college today which wasn’t much fun.

When lessons were finally over, Hayley and I went to meet to meet up with Michael Amhurst. He’s got a car so he picked us up from outside the school and we went to The Coach and Horses.

We expected it to be awkward but it wasn’t too bad actually. He seems really nice (personality-wise) and was okay looking. He told us stuff about school and that he does rowing and which universities he’s applied for and stuff. It was quite weird seeing him after so long actually!

Reunion

[Left to right: Isaac, Hayley, me and Michael after getting chucked out of the pub.]

We ended up getting chucked out of The Coach by this big gruff woman who works there cos we weren’t all drinking something and she yelled at us about it being a pub not a youth centre or something.

There was no-one else in there except the 3 of us and a few of our mates so Cat decided to be cheeky and asked her if she needed the space! Then Hayley pointed out that she’d just finished her drink and the gruff woman turned round and told her to get out so the rest of us went too, leaving a completely empty pub!

Jake came round to mine eventually this evening. We didn’t do much except talk. He told me I’m a really good kisser and that if he was 3 years older he’d marry me! 🙂 Cool! He then asked if we can pretend instead so I said we could cos that sounded really sweet!

That Dido song that’s on the radio all the time now is really going to remind me of Jake leaving because it always comes on when we’re together now!

Michael gave me a lift home after that which I thought was really nice of him cos I’d have had to walk otherwise.

Bye!

I’m going to slap her myself soon! – 13th and 15th December 2000

Wednesday 13th It was my last school Christmas concert with Swing Band tonight at the Parr Hall in Warrington. It all went really well, I think. Jake and Connor ended up coming to watch though!

I got a message from Jake tonight saying, “OK! WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT US RUNNING OUT OF TIME!? WE CAN’T LEAVE IT FOR LONGER THAN A YEAR! WE’LL REGRET IT! LOVE xJx”.

Bye!

Friday 15th Everyone’s beginning to get really pissed off with Hayley and I think it’s about time someone said something to her. She’s always been a selfish bitch but nobody ever stands up to her cos it’s too much hassle!

She’s started slagging off Karen and Lizzie really badly, she’s been interfering with Henry Rockwell’s life by stirring things with him and Ellen Tate (who are a potential couple!), she’s accused me of keeping stuff from her but I have no idea what, and there are plenty of other reasons for her to annoy people.

The thing is that I know that once one person says something, loads of other people will back them up but nobody wants to be brave just in case everyone else keeps quiet! I’m going to slap her myself soon!

Karen, Lizzie and I went out tonight, even though everyone else was being boring and staying in. We started off in The Coach and Horses but then moved on to The Beech Tree where Jake was having a small works Xmas do. It was over by the time we got there so he came to join us.

Lizzie, Karen and I then spotted the 2 most drop-dead-gorgeous teachers from our school, Mr L (who Cat’s got a “thing” with!) and Mr P-K! So, we just happened to sit at a table next to them.

Lizzie’s dad gave me and Jake a lift home cos he stayed in our spare room tonight.

My legs have gone sort of numb like my hand did. I’m getting really worried!

Bye!

 

Cat was pissing us off beyond belief! – 29th & 31st October 2000

Sunday 29th This morning, we dumped out bags at Victoria Station so we could wander round for the day until our flight. We all split up again, this time it was just me, Jake and Floyd. The others went shopping but the rest of us decided that we’d let Floyd see all the sights cos he’s not been before. Plus, Cat was pissing us off beyond belief!

cymera_20181115_175134.jpg

We went to Westminster, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, the Thames, Pizza Hut and then Covent Garden cos Jake wanted to go in Starbucks. After that, we went back to Victoria, got the coach, got the plane and came home. Jake and I didn’t want to!

Bye!

Tuesday 31st Jake and I went to see Billy Elliot at the cinema tonight. It was sooo good! When he left for the Royal Ballet School though, it made me think of Jake leaving for Canada so it upset me a bit.

Jake and I both ended up in floods of tears in the Trafford Centre car park for about 45 minutes cos we’re really dreading being spit up. He kept telling me he loves me and cares for me and has never loved anyone before so it’s not fair.

When I got in, I had a message from him saying, “I LOVE YOU!!! YOU’RE SO SPECIAL – NOT JUST COS YOU MAKE ME CRY! I DON’T LIKE CRYING BUT IF IT’S WITH YOU – THAT’S OK! LOTS OF HUGS + KISSES! WISH I COULD BE THERE TO GIVE THEM TO YOU! NIGHT NIGHT!!! SWEET DREAMS! LOVE YOU… FOREVER… LOTS! : ) xxx JAKE xxx”.

The after that I got, “REMEMBER IN THE DOG ONE NIGHT WE BOTH ASKED THE MAGIC 8 BALL IF WE’D BE TOGETHER FOREVER? WELL I HOPE WE ARE! THE LAST 8 + A BIT MONTHS HAVE BEEN THE HAPPIEST 8 + A BIT MONTHS OF MY LIFE! I REALLY THINK WE ARE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER! WE BOTH LIKED EACH OTHER AND NOT WE LOVE EACH OTHER! : ) NIGHT NIGHT TESS!”

Ohh, he’s so sweet!!

Bye!
