Loads of good blackmail material! – 13th March 2001

Tuesday 13th
3 weeks + 2 days to go!

I’ve been really, really tired all day. I think it must be this bug thing that Mum says is going round. It’s not like I didn’t get to sleep last night cos I did almost straight away.

I got a film developed today. It was all photos that I’ve been taking on Friday nights and stuff so there’s loads of good blackmail material! There are some really funny ones that I took when people were pissed e.g. Robbie Taylor. I have the photographic evidence that he’s been wearing Jake’s clothes!

Cat & Tess in loos

[One of the first photos of Cat and I drunk in the loos… took the latest one a couple of weeks ago!]

Stig

[Lizzie with crisp bags in her hair.]

Snogging

[A spot of snogging… I imagine this was some of the blackmail material.]

Tess and Cat

[Me and Cat, probably in a field on the way to the next pub.]

Drunk Robbie

[Robbie on the floor in Jake’s clothes.]

Jake rang me at about 4:50pm tonight. He was telling me that the Abbie girl is the only one who hasn’t passed Level 1 of the course. I think that’s really shady and so does he but he said she hasn’t really improved much cos she doesn’t do what the instructors tell her to do. I feel sorry for her really.

He also told me more about his roommate saying we can go and stay in his parents’ chalet in Switzerland. I sort of mentioned the fact that everyone there except me would be ski instructors and he wouldn’t want to ski with me if all his mates were there. He got all bothered and hurt about me saying that and promised he wouldn’t do that cos he’d rather ski with me than them. Not that it’s necessarily going to happen anyway!

He’s still saying he wants to come home but is staying for the full 12 weeks. I really can’t wait to see him again! 🙂

I was joking about having to run off with a College 1 or a teacher to him but he told me to stop cos he doesn’t like the thought of it! I should’ve learned that by now!

Bye!

It’s bumpy and the car takes off – 12th March 2001

Monday 12th
3 weeks + 3 days to go!

Floyd and Nell are now apparently seeing each other! Sarah said they were deep in conversation in college and then started snogging again! Nobody understands yet! Floyd seems happy though!

Disaster!! They’re resurfacing Hodge Drive! 😦 If you drive down it really fast, there’s a certain point where it’s bumpy and the car takes off. No more fun on the way back from McDonald’s anymore then!

I still don’t feel 100% yet. I had stomach ache today and my back was stiff and so’s my neck. It was this morning anyway but seems to be okay now.

Jake phoned at about 4:40pm today. He didn’t say that much and he explained that was because he was tired and pissed off about his breakfast or something cos he had to wait ages for it. I didn’t really know what he was on about actually!

He said he played some drinking games last night with a few of his mates but he can’t have drunk too much or I doubt he’s have phoned me at a normal time! He told me he still wants to come home even though they’ve got really nice weather there and it’s chucking it down here!

Ooh! I saw the new Westlife video (Uptown Girl, I think it’s called) and the gorgeous Ioan Gruffudd is on it in a suit! Ahh, he’s sooo fit!! I mean, Hornblower was good but him being in it made me make sure I watched it every time! Jake’s just as gorgeous as him though! 🙂

Bye!

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!

He’s being a complete nasty bastard – 7th & 8th March 2001

Wednesday 7th
4 weeks + 1 days to go!

Donna Sharpe is cooperating with Cat about Mr L now. Cat’s explained about how he’s being a complete nasty bastard towards her and I think she showed Donna the emails he’s sent her to prove it. Donna wants a copy of an email so she can go to history, yell at him and use it as evidence that he’s a liar!

Jake phoned at about 4:40pm today. His dad’s arrived in Banff now so I think he’s going to skip skiing and spend the day with him. Jake told me that his dad met Emma while she was seeing his brother and that he thought she was nice. That then led to the subject of his brother telling me his dad didn’t like me.

Jake got all bothered and said that his dad wouldn’t have said it cos he’s harmless and not like that. He also reminded me that his brother slagged me off to his mate Hugo a while back too. I’d forgotten about that. Great! So if it’s true then both his dad and brother don’t particularly like me.

At least his sister stuck up for me when his dad found out about what his bro said! She yelled at her bro, saying it was a really mean thing to say! 🙂

The snow’s still melting cos it’s really warming up there apparently! 🙂 He’s spoken to his dad about coming home a week early and his dad says that’s okay! I hope he does! A week doesn’t sound that much but it’d be nice to see him sooner rather than later!

Bye!

Thursday 8th
4 weeks to go!

Jake rang at about 4:30pm today. He warned me that if I don’t get an email from him tonight then it’s because he’s stuck at Lake Louise. I’m not allowed to worry! He’s skiing as normal but is meeting his dad afterwards so won’t be getting his usual bus back. Instead, he’s going to be getting the last bus back to Banff so if he misses that or his dad’s got the times wrong then he’s stuck there!

He told me it’s still warming up where he is so the snow’s continuing to melt. He said he still wants to come home early so he’s going to check the airline’s website to see if there are any earlier flights back to Heathrow that have got a spare seat for him. 🙂 He thinks he’ll book it if there are any! 🙂

I really do hope he can come home earlier cos then I’ve only got 3 weeks to wait now! He kept telling me not to get my hopes up just in case it doesn’t happen but it’s difficult not to because I really, really want/need to see him!

Bye!

He jacked off in front of her in the history cupboard! – 3rd March 2001

Saturday 3rd
4 weeks + 5 days to go!

Cat phoned me today cos she’s worrying about the Mr L thing cos she’s had some emails from him saying how HE feels hurt and betrayed and stuff cos he reckons she told people on the ski trip that he jacked off in front of her in the history cupboard!

She was okay once she’d been reassured that he’s the one that’s going to get the bollocking if this all gets out, not her. She sent him a nasty email back! 🙂

Oh wow! My mum brought some Playmobil home from her primary school today so I could put all the stickers on and stuff. It’s sooo cool! She’s got a big yellow digger, a truck, a compactor and a Portaloo with all the little builders and stuff! Hee hee! 🙂

Jake phoned me at about 7:15pm. He said he’s still enjoying his first aid course thing. He was only on a 15 minute break from it when he phoned so he couldn’t talk for long. He told me that they’re rearranging the ski groups on Monday so he’s hoping he won’t be put in a group with 2 boring older blokes like he was before! He said they’re really swotty and suck up to the instructors cos they want to get good. I thought the whole point was to get good but I suppose that doesn’t mean you have to suck up!

Bye!

Another nice surprise! – 24th February 2001

Saturday 24th
5 weeks + 5 days to go!

Jake rang me even earlier today at about 2:40pm. Another nice surprise! 🙂 He said he’d missed the bus and wouldn’t be able to ring me from Lake Louise later because he was going to be late. It was a very short call but I still was pleased to hear from him.

He did end up ringing me again at about 7:45pm thought cos he got a lunch break. It’s his last day of the assessment today and he finds out later whether he’s passed Level 1. He was really worrying on the phone because he’s got to teach his group stuff as part of the test and he’s been given the most difficult but to do. I’m sure he will pass and I kept telling him that but he was much less positive.

Some girl called Charlie shouted, “Hello Tessa!” down the phone while he was speaking to me. Apparently she’s trying to cheer him up too cos she got the easy bit where all she had to do was teach how to put a ski on and easy stuff like that!

I won’t find out if he’s passed until I read his email tomorrow! He should do though.

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!
