I had a lasagne. It was nice. – 31st October 1997

Friday 31st

October 1997 - Ticket 2

I can’t believe it. They’ve found Louise Woodward guilty of murdering Matthew Eappen. How? I don’t understand it. The two lie detector tests say she was telling the truth and the doctors say something happened to the baby 2 or 3 weeks before he died. So many people are angry about it, especially her family and people who knew her in Cheshire. It’s unbelievable. I hope they sort it out.

Today was ok. Mum took me and Abby to the shops coz Auntie G had to work. On her birthday too! I got a new watch strap coz Abby broke it last night and we went in Harrods and got a cake. Mum booked the BBC tour and we ate our lunch in some park with the pigeons and squirrels.

October 1997 - London

We wandered about for ages until it was time for our tour. It was so boring. It was more radio than TV and they showed us boring films. It’s crap compared to the Granada one.

October 1997 - BBC tour

We met Auntie G and went for an Italian in Covent Garden. I had a lasagne. It was nice.

I’m knackered now after walking round all day.


P.S. I bought a weird keyring in Monsoon.

I’m in London now! – 12th February 1997

My Wednesday 12th I’m in London now! I forgot to mention it before. Mum, Charlotte and I came to stay with Mum’s sister, Auntie G. She’s moved into a new flat so we’ve landed ourselves on her. We’ve left Dad at home with Mollie, our 1 year old Scottie. I’m going to miss them.

We set off this morning from Warrington Bank Quay and arrived 3 hours later. We came in at Euston station here in London.

I got really bored on the train and we had this man and woman talking really loudly sitting near us.

Auntie G met us and we went on the tube to Boston Manor then we drove to Hanwell where the flat is.

This evening we had a look round Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square then went to China Town and had a meal there.


[And here is a list of my hobbies and dislikes that I randomly included…]

Play flute
Go to school [Oh God! I must’ve been seriously struggling to think of hobbies.]
Love ice skating when I go (I don’t have lessons though)
Manchester United
Seeing my cousins in Caithness
Oasis (band)
James Douglas (Dougie)

Wasps, bees, daddy-long-legs etc. (Urggh!) [This hasn’t changed. I recently realised that I’m not keen on things that fly slowly when in an enclosed space. I like them from a distance and outdoors but, if they’re in the same room, they might go in my mouth. I don’t want them in my mouth.]
Green beans [This also hasn’t changed. I don’t want them in my mouth either.]
Scratchy blackboards [Thanks, young me. My teeth are now on edge just thinking about it.]
Liverpool, Everton, Arsenal etc.
Garbage (band)
Lindsey and Karen
Megan Quinn
Big dogs
