An opportunity to have a good smooch! – 1st March 2000

Wednesday 1st I didn’t go to college today because I woke up feeling really ill this morning. I’ve got a temperature and a sore throat and an extremely runny nose and I keep going deaf. I feel awful! I might drag myself into college tomorrow though because I’ve only got 2 lessons. Mind you, I’ll probably end up infecting everyone else.

I got messages from my mates asking if I was okay and stuff. I don’t think I missed much during the day but quite a lot of people went bowling tonight because it’s Freda’s birthday.

I had messages from Jake too apologising for giving me his sore throat and stuff! He gave me his postcard that he wrote to me in Paris yesterday. I just found it again before cos I put it in my Geography folder. I love his writing! →



I hope he doesn’t catch the sore throat back. I suppose I’ll have to control myself, won’t I, but he wants to go and see a film on Friday night and that’s just too good an opportunity to have a good smooch! Damn this bug!!



I’ve hired Cat as my bodyguard – 1st-4th November 1999

Monday 1st I had to go back to college today after half term. I saw Trotter again for the first time in ages and he’s still as gorgeous as ever.

Most people know about Nathan and Aled now. Davis said Nathan said, “Hi”. Ed found out about Aled and was telling me to say it wasn’t true and stuff. Lizzie told him. We’ve agreed we’re even now after I told Aled about Brett and now she’s said that to Ed.

Aled was being nice to me again today. When Oscar was telling him I’d said that if I was going out with someone, I’d dump them before Xmas so I didn’t have to buy them a present, Aled then said, “Oh, I’ve always said that!” Hmmm, to be honest, I’m not so sure he has because Oscar couldn’t confirm it.


P.S. I got this postcard from Freda this morning. It’s a bit late arriving because she got back last Wednesday!


Tuesday 2nd Freda said she might have a party at her house on my birthday, using both my birthday and Poppy’s birthday as the excuse. Aled’s got ice hockey on Fridays so he was whinging and trying to get it changed to Saturday because he wants to come. It’s not even confirmed it’s happening because Freda hasn’t asked her parents.

To be honest, I feel a bit guilty about this because it’s hardly fair we use her house. I mean, she genuinely doesn’t seem to mind though. It’s just any excuse for a party with her.

I got another postcard this morning, this time from Hayley.


I’m quite worried already about what Hayley’s reaction to the Aled situation’s going to be. I know I really shouldn’t be but it’s likely she’ll twist it in some way, especially if this party goes ahead and we get together again.

However much of a cow she’s been recently, I would kind of like to be able to talk to her bout all this. I think I could also possibly trust her to tell all the Nathan details too because I really want to tell someone.

I’m worried about Dad. He’s really hurt his back again. He was in loads of pain tonight and could hardly walk. I didn’t like seeing him like that so I had to go in another room. Mum’s taking him to the doctor tomorrow morning so hopefully he’ll do something for it.


Thursday 4th Aled decided today that he might just skip hockey altogether so he can come to Freda’s party. I hope he does. It sounds like loads of people are going now. More than usual. I don’t know if they’re all staying though.

I’ve hired Cat as my bodyguard against Freda and Cat’s hired me to control her intake of alcohol! She doesn’t want a repeat of the Chris Kelly-Banks situation and Freda is pretending to be a lesbian again. She’s kept it going too long now. It was quite funny to start with but she’s just getting on my nerves now.


Pathetic isn’t it!! – 15th & 16th July 1999

Thursday 15th I got this postcard from Sarah Llewellyn today. ↓



I’ve not been abroad for years with my family, the last time being to Cyprus which was great. We don’t go anymore as a family coz it’s both too expensive and we’ve got the dog and can’t bear the thought of leaving her!

I’ve not actually got a lot to tell Sarah for when she gets back. Maybe summit really good and exciting will happen soon which I can tell her about. Somehow I doubt it! I suppose I could fill her in on Zoe’s party. That’ll take all of 2 minutes! I could also tell her about Ed being picked on by Ollie Bramwell. She fancies them both so might find it mildly interesting.

I’d say that was about it actually. Pathetic isn’t it!!


Friday 16th I went online at about 2:45pm today coz I was bored and Adam was on. I asked him where he’d been and he said he was just about to ask me the same thing. He told me that he just hasn’t been on the computer much recently. He didn’t say much else really other than we’ll speak asap and that he’d mail me. Then he had to go. He’d just been looking at car prices coz he said he’s getting a car very soon. Could be handy!

I just saw John Baker before. He was outside his house, kneeling on the pavement pulling up weeds from the base of the wall from what I could tell. That’s it.
