It’s his last night to pull – 20th July 2000

Thursday 20th My postcards from Jake finally arrived this morning. It’s a good job they did or I wouldn’t have been able to read them until I got back from Holland. (I’ve stuck them over the page.)

It was the last day of college today but I’ve been left with tonnes of coursework to get on with over the “holidays”! We finished early today so I came home to pack for tonight when I leave for Holland. I’m getting really excited now but I know the coach journey’s going to seem to take forever and I won’t get much sleep (if any!) so I’ll look a complete state when I get off at the other end! I hope Jake will be there though.

He’s asked me to bring my nail varnish cos he’s only got a bit left on his nail and also my Poppy body spray cos the smell of it on his watch strap’s wearing off. I think I’d better take my nail varnish remover and all cos if he gets drunk, he’ll let me put it on and then regret it the next morning!

He was telling me before that he’s going into Amsterdam tonight because it’s Charlie’s and Ali’s last chance to pull and Charlie reckons he’s feeling lucky! He also told me that he can’t stay in our hotel cos there’s no room so he’s booked into a hostel or something in Maastricht which he said is only 10 minutes away on the train.

He sent me 2 messages after that saying, “I GET TO SEE YOU TOMORROW! : ) : ) : ) SORRY – IT LOOKS BETTER WHEN I WRITE IT IN A MSG! : ) CAN YOU TELL HOW HAPPY N VERY EXCITED I AM BY THE NUMBER OF SMILEY FACES??…” and then, “COS I’M SOOO EXCITED!!! LOVE YOU TO BITS!!! : ) : ) : ) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx J xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx : ) : ) : )”. Do you think he put enough kisses?!

I then told him (jokingly) that it’s his last night to pull too but he said, “CHEEK – YOU KNOW I’M NOT OUT TO PULL AND I DON’T WANT TO EITHER! : ) WAY TOO HAPPY TO EVEN LOOK AT ANYONE ELSE! : ) I THOUGHT IT WAS AT LEAST 7PM BEFORE – THEN I LOOKED AT MY WATCH AND IT’S ONLY 4PM! CAN’T BELIEVE HOW SLOW IT’S GOING! 24 HOURS AND WE’LL BE TOGETHER! : ) LOVE YOU! : ) xxx J xxx”.

I’ve decided that from now on, when I get a continuing message, I’ll just write it down as if it’s one.

A bit later on he said, “REALLY REALLY REALLY CAN’T WAIT! YOU WILL TEXT ME WHEN YOU’RE ALL ON THE COACH WON’T YOU?! I’M JUST WALKING ROUND – THEY’RE LOOKING FOR SOME DODGY COFFEE HOUSES! WHAT ARE YOU UP TO?? I’M SOOO EXCITED! – THIS HAS BEEN SO HORRIBLE! AND TOMORROW IT’LL ALL BE OVER – CAN’T WAIT! REALLY DO LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH! xJx”.

I agreed that it’s been horrible and stuff and then he said, “UURRGGHH! JUST WANT TO GET ON THAT TRAIN NOW! AT THEY VERY LEAST I SHOULD SEE YOU IN THE EVENINGS… SHOULDN’T I?? GONNA WANT TO BE WITH YOU ALL THE TIME! CAN’T PUT IN THIS OR ANY OTHER MSG HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU!!! COS I LOVE YOU MORE THAN WORDS! : ) YOU MAKE ME SOOO HAPPY! : ) STILL CAN’T WAIT! – HOPE YOU’VE GOT LOTS OF CREDIT FOR THIS COACH JOURNEY (WELL UNTIL YOU GET ON THE FERRY)! LEAST YOU SHOULDN’T FALL ASLEEP TONIGHT… SHOULD YOU! LOVE YOU LOTS!!! : ) xxx J xxx”,

I really can’t wait to see him! I just want to get there!

Bye!

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!!

Bye!

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.

BYE!

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.

BYE!

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.

BYE!

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!!

BYE!

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.

BYE!
