I DO NOT want an office job – 21st July 2002

Sunday 21st  I started work at Tor Environmental Consultancy on Tuesday. It was an okay first day and everyone seems nice enough. There’s Malcolm Michaels (the owner and Head Consultant), Janet Hill (another consultant), Darren Spen (Assistant Consultant) and Kathleen Burley (Office Manager). I just got shown the basics, e.g. how to work the photocopier, and got odd jobs to do like filing stuff and posting letters.

By Wednesday I’d decided I DO NOT want an office job when I finish uni. I don’t mind being in one for a bit but not all day, every day. Malcolm, Janet and Darren are out on site all the time so being an Environmental Consultant might suit me. It was just incredibly boring over the last couple of days. 8 hours doesn’t half drag! People spoke to me a bit on Thursday which was good and I’d been asked to work on Saturday. I’d get £7.50 per hour but I’d already said I’d see Jonas.

We won wine at The Green Dragon pub quiz on Wednesday night. Everyone was impressed by my good-sounding job until I told them how boring it can get.

I watched Graham Norton on TV this weekend and somebody sent in a picture of the sign for the village of Twatt on Orkney. I was going to do that one day!

I went to Gainsborough on Friday. We stayed at Jonas’s mum’s house but went round to his dad’s new and empty house for a bath (once we’d got the spiders out) and other stuff which was nice and fun. It was sooo nice to see him!

We went to Lincoln yesterday with Jonas’s sister. It was thundery and we get very, very wet. When we got back and dried off we got up to 5 in his sofa bed. His room looks quite good now, even though it’s very small. Jonas said he’ll never dump me and he wants to buy me a toe ring. I remembered that at T in the Park he said it could be like a secret engagement ring! 🙂 He also said he loves me sooo much. Yey!

Before I left we did stuff together and then Jonas had to speak to a policewoman about his dad’s house being robbed. I watched the F1 while that went on and Michael Schumacher won the whole damn thing. Boring and predictable.

It was horrible saying goodbye to Jonas at the station today. Neither of us wanted me to go. I hate leaving him cos I love him so much.

Bye!

I was ready to punch the knobhead in the balls – 15th July 2002 – Part 2

Monday 15th continued  On Saturday morning we made our way to the arena and over to the NME Stage. We watched lots of bands such as:

  • Hundred Reasons
  • A
  • Idlewild
  • Less Than Jake
  • Hoobastank

They were all very good. We got pretty near to the front and there was a TV camera pointing at us loads. We wandered round all the stalls and over to the main stage to see The Hives.

We watched Athlete in King Tut’s Wah Wah tent too. They were cool.

Back at the NME Stage we saw a mini whirlwind come across us, pick up some litter and swirl it round really high up. I saw Rhian too. She didn’t take her phone so I couldn’t find her again after that.

I really, really hate portaloos now. I dread going to the toilet because they’re sooo disgusting. I’ve hardly drunk any alcohol so I don’t need to pee as much. It’s certainly a good incentive to remain sober!

The last band we saw was Oasis. I like them a lot but they definitely weren’t as entertaining to us as some of the less well known bands.

We sat around our group of tents after that and Jonas and his mates played guitars and sang. Ross, Fraser, Andrew and Neil are in a band called The Gloria Flaw and they want us to see them do a gig in Forres one day. Apparently Jonas is mentioned on their website cos he was in a band with some of them once.

When we went to bed, Jonas was saying that he wanted to go to Gretna Green to get married. 🙂 He was jokingly saying it but said he meant it.

Sunday was good but not brilliant. Jonas and I missed a band called Biffy Clyro that Jonas’s mates know and really like because we were stood in a queue for the cash machine for 2 and a half hours. It was ridiculous! Cheeky little bastards kept pushing in at the front so they rest of us who’d politely waited were stuck for bloody ages. The security guy at the front must’ve been blind!

I got very, very pissed off when a lanky guy pushed in right in front of me and Jonas. I asked him to get out of the queue and he started trying to deny he’d done it. The woman behind us saw him and was annoyed so he started on Jonas. He couldn’t have hit him very well because he was obviously pissed but I was ready to punch the knobhead in the balls if I’d needed to. I didn’t.

That afternoon we watched Foo Fighters then Green Day who were excellent. It was so good! We just missed out on getting in the mosh pit bit were as close as we could be otherwise. They got people up on stage to play their instruments and the lad with green hair who played the bass had a sister stood right by us.

That evening we sat around singing and stuff again. A couple of other people joined in too. I was a wee bit tipsy but not too bad. When we went to bed, Jonas asked me how long I thought we should’ve been going out before we did stuff without anything. I asked why and he said it’s more personal. I then asked how he knew and he told me he did it without anything the first time he ever had sex. I’m not impressed. He said he’d get checked out for diseases if I wanted. He then got all upset about it and said he’s worried about it before. We made up and he said he still wants to marry me. 🙂 I’m very cautious about it anyway. I’m not sure it’s worth the risks really.

This morning we packed up our tent and stuff, said goodbye to the Forres lot and left Kinross. I didn’t really want to go cos it’s been a good weekend. I had a small go at Jonas for his driving but then felt guilty and apologised. Jonas said it didn’t matter. He stopped at mine for tea and said he didn’t want to leave. I hope I can see him again at the weekend.

I’m a bit nervous about starting my job tomorrow. EEK!

Bye!

A pair of jeans and a yellow space hopper – 15th July 2002 – Part 1

Monday 15th  I got offered a job at Tor Environmental Consultancy last Tuesday. It’s the job of Office Assistant. The main boss guy, Malcolm Michaels, used to live next door but one (he still lives in the village), knows Dad and helped me with my A-level Geography project. He must’ve remembered what I’m doing at uni and offered me the job before he handed it over to the Job Centre. Cool! It’s £5 an hour and 4 days a week.

I went shopping with Denny to Cheshire Oaks last week too. He wanted to get himself some “sexy-ass summer shit” and wanted the opinion of someone else. I got a pair of jeans and a yellow space hopper while I was there.

I phoned Jonas when I got back and he said he’d spoken to his mate Ross in Forres about T in the Park. Apparently there are 3 minibuses going from Forres. EEK!! That’s a lot of Jonas’s mates to meet. My cousin Rhian’s going too but won’t get there until Saturday. I’m a bit nervous of going now. They know all the bands and I don’t really. Judging by the amount of girls Jonas pointed out in his yearbook who fancied him, I’m worried they may get a bit bitchy too. He said they’re mainly skaters so I might not fit in. Jonas said he won’t leave me out though.

They might think I’m too quiet as well if I don’t say much for fear of embarrassing myself. I can’t help being worried and I don’t want Jonas to think less of me for doing it. He doesn’t seem to worry very much but I do all the time. I think he thinks I’m a bit stupid for worrying.

I’m also not convinced that he likes me as much as I like him at the moment. I’m probably just being paranoid though. He said he’s looking forward to seeing me and loves me and we did have a laugh about me worrying on the phone.

I went to The Green Dragon pub quiz after speaking to Jonas with Denny, Rocky and Floyd.  We won a bottle of red wine. Yay!

Ooh, I’ve just remembered something Jonas said. I told him if his mates don’t like me then I don’t have to see them again. He then said it depends on us because he might be going to see them at Christmas and I could go too. 🙂

On Thursday I went to the Trafford Centre and did The Run [pub crawl]. Jonas told me his dad’s house has been burgled. All his camera equipment’s gone along with Jonas’s CDs. Poor them.

On Friday I set off for T in the Park with Jonas. It was at Balado near Kinross and it was a good drive up there. When we arrived we got our sparkly green wristbands, found Jonas’s mates and set up the tent. It turns out his mates are all really nice and kind of reminded me of my lot.

However, Jonas was kind of forcing me to speak to people, like the one girl (Fiona) and I didn’t know what to say. It was ok though. We did stuff in the tent when we went to bed but Jonas was really stoned. We didn’t really get all that much sleep cos we were near the fairground and it had crappy dance music going on all night. There were lots of drunk people staggering past out tent too which made me a bit more nervous as I had visions of one falling on us.

Practising kissing on his hand – 30th June 2002

Sunday 30th  Jonas turned up at Storthes earlier than expected on Monday which was a very nice surprise. It was sooooo nice to see him and we cuddled lots. We talked and kissed lots as well which was nice. He said he’d been practising kissing on his hand cos he couldn’t remember what it was like! I got a bit upset because I didn’t want him to leave again.

We talked about my work placement and him starting work and he said if we can get through that then who knows what could happen! He said 80% of students marry people they met at uni 🙂 I went to uni with him on Tuesday. He had a presentation of his work or something so I wandered round and met him after it. He’s a bit of a swot really! He’s the only one who turned up.

We cuddled and did stuff again and he helped me pack my stuff to go home. He went and then I went. I haven’t handed my key in yet but I will soon. I’m not that fussed about leaving Storthes cos there’s nobody there and it’s boring.

I went to the Trafford Centre on Wednesday then town on Thursday night for Lizzie’s birthday. It was good because Warrington’s improved since I left. Mr Smith’s has been done up too. Some dancy-crap singer called Kelly Llorenna or something came down on a stage from the ceiling so we did the YMCA to her. We also met Cat’s 32 year old ‘boy’friend that she found on the internet. He seems ok and looks a bit like Cat! Lizzie and I pretended to pole dance round Sarah and Isaac and I took the piss out of scallies by imitating their dancing. That’s always fun!

On Friday, Abby drove me to Warrington Central station so I could go to Gainsborough but there were train strikes so none were direct to Huddersfield where I wanted to change. My phone battery had died so it was just by chance I spotted Abby. While deciding what to do, I saw Cat and Lizzie so Cat let me charge my phone in Dawsons where she works.

I decided to go to Jonas’s anyway and had to change trains at Manchester Piccadilly. I got completely lost but eventually found the right platform but had to wait for ages. There was another guy trying to get to Hull but couldn’t find his train. I tried to help but couldn’t and I felt really sorry for him.

I eventually got to Huddersfield but only to find there were no trains going to Lincoln. They’d all been cancelled. I was pretty pissed off and didn’t know what to do so I went to Storthes. I manages to get hold of Jonas and he very kindly offered to pick me up. I did make it to Gainsborough in the end!

Jonas told me his auntie’s house is haunted (thanks, Jonas!) so I was glad when I wasn’t on my own. They’ve got lots of cats so I blamed noises on them to make me feel better! We were very pleased to see each other and had a nice snuggle up on the sofa watching TV. It was very nice having the whole house to ourselves and a double bed.

Jonas was at work til 2pm on Saturday so I was scared all morning! We went to Cleethorpes to the beach but the sea was really far out. We walked along the sand anyway. That evening we had a BBQ at his mum’s and I met her boyfriend Mike. Laura gave me a belt too which was nice of her cos she doesn’t wear it anymore. We went to see his dad briefly too.

After Gainsborough, Jonas drove me to Huddersfield and we said goodbye. Mum and Dad then came and cleared out my room. I handed my key in so I’ve officially left Storthes. EEK! I don’t want anyone else to have my room but I am looking forward to living in a house. I’ve left my 1st year accommodation and it only seems 2 minutes since I moved in!

Goodbye Room 5, Flat 5, Block D, Boothroyd Court!

Bye!

I went without a shower for 3 days – 22nd June 2002

Saturday 22nd  The fieldtrip was hell. Last year they went to Malta, the Geography lot went to Switzerland and we get dumped in South Wales. Woohoo.

The place we stayed in was awful. From the outside it looked okay but once inside, ugh! It was freezing cold, the rooms were tiny and full of midges and it was just generally crap. I shared a room with Jen and Sally which we were very pleased about cos we could’ve been with the old people. However, we couldn’t actually get into our room at first due to the door handle being knackered. Once we did get in, the stuff we put on the floor (mainly clothes) ended up damp because of a wet patch across half the room.

After a particularly unpleasant tea on the 1st night, Sally, Jen and I decided to have a shower. We found some in the block that were pretty nasty looking with brown patches on the walls and hair clogging up the plug, but we were told they were for staff and ours were across the car park. The ones for us were 10 times worse. They were cold with muddy puddles full of grass on the floor, a vast collection of dead insects scattered around, cobwebs in the windows and brown/yellow stains everywhere. They looked like they hadn’t been cleaned for years. The showers themselves were pathetic trickles that took about 10 minutes to warm up and we later found out the water came from a stream (probably full of dead sheep).

If being traumatised by having daddy long legs flying round in the shower wasn’t enough, on my way out I spotted it. The biggest fucking moth I have EVER seen was sat on the door to get out. It was kind of sparrow-sized and I was sooo scared of it flying at me. It stayed there all week too and even the lads were scared to shift the thing. At one point I went without a shower for 3 days just cos of the moth!

We were out doing fieldtrips every day. Some were awful, e.g. when Dr V took 2 hours to explain something that could’ve taken 5 minutes while we were being eaten alive by midges and missing our dinner. Some, like the trips to the beach and rock pools, I quite enjoyed. We visited Port Talbot steelworks (Corus), sand dunes and rock pools at the Gower Peninsula, mud, beaches and a pub.

The fieldtrips would’ve been much more bearable had we not had Dr V rambling on and on and on. Just as you thought he’d stopped talking, he started again, usually due to an old person or Ben asking a question. Even the other lecturers got bored!

Another annoying thing about the damn trip was that we missed most of the World Cup. Just before we had to do our presentations on the last day (ours was on the rock pools – me, Jen and Sally did it) we got to watch England lose to Brazil on a tiny fuzzy black and white TV. Oh joy.

The whole trip just got to the point when it was so bad it was funny. On nights, we were working til 11:30pm and watched Archie trying to force down a shepherd’s pie, which he hates. Poor Julie even had to have her birthday there.

I got to know people I’d never really spoken to before and I found I got on really well with Sally. We talked loads and I found out she knows Pierced Sam who’s living with Jonas next year. We’ve got the same taste in lads, clothes, music and hate talking to our parents about lad stuff. She’s been going out with her boyfriend Harvey for a long time too. It’s just weird how I’ve never really bothered with her before because we’ve mainly stuck with people we met in Freshers Week.

Kevin managed to not only piss me off this week but piss off just about everyone else there too. Most people got to know and like each other more but Kevin just annoyed everyone. Here is a list of examples:

  • Jen was telling us how her Scalextric has trucks on it and we were all quite impressed. Kevin then felt the need to better her and reeled of loads of cars he’s got on his.
  • When we had a quiz, Kevin was so determined that his team beat me, Jen, Archie and Sally that he even pissed Ben off who was a member of his team. Ben later told me (on one of his many night time rants in our room about Kevin) that he was actually hoping we’d beat them because of Kevin!
  • Jen put the tiniest bit of vodka in Archie’s pint and Kevin said very loudly how immature it was, I think in the hope Archie might be grateful.
  • Kevin basically said people from council estates are scum. Jen lives on a council estate.

There were many more incidences of Kevin being a prick but I’d be here forever if I wrote them all down.

Ooh, I’ve just remembered another… During our presentation of our project, Kevin said to Archie, “I bet that’s all she’s gonna do” about me when I was changing slides. He was wrong. Grrr! However, Rick and Ben called Kevin “Shit” all week. It started cos they’d called him “Tidy Ida” for folding his underwear and stuff. He didn’t like that so Rick pointed out they could call him much worse, e.g. Shit. Ha ha!

Ben also commented on the fact that Kevin always goes on about the size of his speakers. Ben started saying stuff like, “Which speakers are those then? I don’t think I’ve ever heard you mention them.” Hee hee!

I spoke to Jonas twice when I was in Wales. He said he loves me and misses me but wasn’t doing much but working in a wood yard. He said I could stay at his auntie’s house with him while he looks after it. I did get a bit upset once cos I missed him a lot. I can’t wait to see him.

Bye!

Love rats and trust – 9th & 16th June 2002

Sunday 9th  Jonas stayed at mine all this week cos he’s moved all his stuff out of his house and to his mum’s. I really like having him at mine all the time but I kept snapping at him for things like eating all my food. I think I’m a little bit worried about exams etc., I don’t really mean to do it.

I had a Water Science and a Microbiology exam this week. The Water Science one was okay but Microbiology was really hard. It was multiple choice but I couldn’t do it. I’m gonna have to rely on luck!

I went out on Thursday to Bar Non. It was very boring. I got a hug off one off Jill Baines but there was nobody else out really.

Jonas keeps saying he loves me! 🙂 I really don’t want him to go home. It’s going to be horrible not seeing him as much.

Bye!

Sunday 16th  Jonas went home this week so he can start his job in the woodyard. Before he left, we did stuff. He wanted to leave me something to remember him by but I don’t think I’m going to forget him! It doesn’t feel like I won’t see him for ages. We said goodbye at uni in the car with lots of hugs and kisses. I’m going to miss him so much! I do already.

Violet left this week as well so I’m not entirely sure who’s left now because I never see them.

We went out for Kevin’s birthday on Tuesday but it wasn’t all that exciting. I got upset when I got back to my flat cos I missed Jonas so much. I didn’t think he was going to ring but he did. He’s just been fixing his car and might be back on the 25th. He said he misses me and loves me and he hugged the phone and blew kisses down it! 🙂

Some gimp of a lad who was wearing a matching shirt to his friends came up to me in Warehouse and lifted my chin and said something about turning my frown upside-down. Hazel said the look of disgust on my face was funny. She asked me to go to the cinema tomorrow too. I felt really guilty for some reason. I felt like I shouldn’t be dressed up so things like lads coming on to me wouldn’t happen. I wouldn’t cheat on Jonas but even people coming on to me when he’s not there makes me feel bad, even though it’s not my fault.

I had my last exam on Thursday then Jonas rang me. He said he really misses me now but he didn’t as much before. I told him some creepy lad came on to me because he asked if anyone had. I then asked if he trusted me (I’d been watching Trisha about love rats and trust) but saying that probably made him suspicious. I just want him to know I’d never do anything and I want him to say the same.  I trust him anyway. Ooh, I love Jonas! 🙂

The stage which I’m going to miss Wheatus playing on went up right outside my bloody window on Friday. I’m sooo pissed off! I want to go to the Summer Ball, not on a crappy fieldtrip to Wales.

Jonas started work. He said he’s tired but it was easy and ok. He told me he’s been “bored” twice and was getting excited when I mentioned no knickers and dancing naked in the rain! He said he might get “bored” again! He told me he really does miss me now and he’ll worry something’s happened if I don’t ring from Wales. He said he loves me 🙂 mmm! I really love him and miss him too!

Bye!

Jake can bloody well piss off – 2nd June 2002

Sunday 2nd  I had my Atmospheric Science exam to start this week off and it wasn’t too good at all. I was expecting to have to write an essay at some point in the exam but the entire exam was 3 essays. I don’t think I did too well unless some of my waffling happened purely by chance to be correct. Jonas came round later to cheer me up.

Jonas was happy on Wednesday cos he got some good comments for his work. I actually have no idea how well I’m doing in some subjects. I would quite like to know then I can either not stress or decide to work harder.

On Thursday, there was the school disco that I’m on the flyer for. It was pretty good actually, even though I’ve been to loads. Jonas looked really good in the jeans he cut the bottoms off, a cap and some freckles for eyeliner. He said I looked good too. Rick off my course also told me I was looking good, Fit Phil (Jen named him that – I disagree) from Ben’s flat pinched my arse and so did some others. Dave told Jonas he’s really lucky cos I’m great. That was nice of him. Jonas said he definitely agreed 🙂 I’m lucky to have Jonas too.

When we were in Rock Café, Aletta from Ben’s flat spoke to me. I was surprised cos Archie told me she didn’t like me for some reason and she usually blanks me. I think it’s from the start cos they said we spied on them from our flat and I told Ben that they were being a bit pathetic.

Back at Storthes, Jonas started talking about houses together again. It makes me happy to think we might be together for that long and he’s thinking about it. He did scare me when he said there was a 1% chance I’d meet someone else over the summer. I don’t want him to think that cos he might meet someone as well. I want him to know I don’t want anyone else too.

On Friday, I went home with Jonas and Archie for Abby’s 18th birthday party. It was also a school disco!

[Birthday girls]

All my mates from home were there too so it was good fun. Archie got very, very drunk and snogged Karen. He then got upset cos she then went off and snogged Cat and Jake (at the same time!). He was then sick all over Floyd’s sofa cos we went there afterwards. He kept telling me how I’m his best mate, “Not just at uni, best mate ever!” Aww!! I have to day, I think he’s one of my best mates too.

[Jonas, Archie & me]

I saw Freddie Bevan at the party. I used to be really good mates with him when he went out with Emma T but he’s getting married now! That’ll be weird when my mates start getting married.

Jake said Cat and Karen are a pair of nymphomaniacs. He kept talking to my dad too which I didn’t like cos Jonas is my boyfriend now so he should be the one speaking to my dad. Jake can bloody well piss off. Mind you, he did spend most of his time sat in the corner with Connor. Hah!

[Gethin teaching us one of his dances.]

Yesterday, Archie wasn’t feeling very well at all. I can’t say I was surprised! He got the train home okay though. Jonas walked Mollie round the fields with me. It was really nice. We saw some ducklings and they sat incredibly still and well camouflaged in the pond when they saw us. I didn’t know ducks did that. We came back to Huddersfield last night and Jonas stayed at mine all today.

Bye!

Just giving him certain looks may cause trouble – 26th May 2002

Sunday 26th  On Monday, I had a night out to Camel Club. Jonas was there too with his mates and a load of curly Scouser wigs. Paul, Dave and Mitch were all being really nice to me and Paul even hugged me at one point. Geeky Sid however didn’t really speak to me so I didn’t bother trying to make an effort cos when he’s pissed he always turns EVERYTHING I say into something bad and he sulks.

Jonas was pretty drunk too and had a stern word with me about being nice to Sid before I’d even seen him. Apparently I don’t always have to say anything, just giving him certain looks may cause trouble. Great. I’d better get a mask or something. Jonas was pissed so I didn’t take him being all serious too seriously and he did say later he didn’t mean it to sound like he was having a go at me. Before we left we spent ages searching for Jonas’s wig cos some girl nicked it off him and wouldn’t have it back til he bought her a drink. He didn’t. 🙂

Jonas stayed at mine afterwards and we had our most serious disagreement yet but it was nothing really, it’s just we haven’t really had one before. We were just lying in bed and he was basically not seeing how me not talking to Sid is the best thing to do. If I speak to him it’s even worse. Jonas said I should at least try and I pointed out that I had but it didn’t work. Jonas ended up getting a bit upset cos he said he didn’t want there to be tension between his mate and his girlfriend. I felt guilty then (even though it’s not my fault) so we made up.

Archie, Dave, Jonas and I all had a trip to the cinema on Tuesday night to see Dog Soldiers and Star Wars. They were both very good but Dog Soldiers was better. I did miss some of it though due to hiding behind my knees!

Archie and I were bored on Wednesday night so we went and joined Ben and his mates in Milton. It was quite good actually, considering I don’t know many of them very well. Ben told me that I’m “well happy now” and that he likes it. He used to say I was a bit miserable but I explained that it was probably Kevin’s fault! They all convinced Archie and I to go to Warehouse with them but I went to find Jonas who was working in the computer rooms til about midnight.

Thursday was quite a good night for Archie, Hazel and her new boyfriend Mike and I. We all went out. We started in Wetherspoons where some of Mike’s flatmates were. I got told that a lad called Kav (who I actually thought was quite nice when I’ve seen him around halls) fancied me. They were being evil and not telling him I had a boyfriend even though I told them they should. I wasn’t interested any more now I’ve got loverly Jonas. 🙂 Mmm!

Anyway, there was also a girl called Emma with them and she said she fancied Archie. Once we got into Bar Non, everyone was forcing them together and it actually worked. They ended up snogging loads in front of everyone. That left me as a bit of a gooseberry. I had one last wander round and saw Dave who seemed pleased to see me (I think he was pissed!) and Jake who told me Connor’s invited him to Abby’s 18th party. I then got picked up by Jonas which I was glad about.

Archie went out with Emma the next night to the cinema. The same night, a load of uni publicity people came to our flat with the Skool Disko flyers. I’m famous!

This weekend I’ve been with Jonas nearly all of the time, watching the F1 together and stuff. We’ve been together for exactly 6 MONTHS today. How good is that?! 🙂

Bye!

2 hours slagging off Kevin – 19th May 2002

Sunday 19th  Ooh, I really don’t like being without Jonas now, even for a few hours. I didn’t like it anyway but the more time I spend with him the worse it is being apart.

I only went out once this week. On Monday I went to Camel and saw quite a few people there including Jill Baines from my college who I spoke to for quite a while. I stayed at Jonas’s after.

Unlike most people, I made it into uni on Tuesday morning. There was only Ben and me there. Ben spent most of the 2 hours slagging off Kevin (I wasn’t going to stop him!), saying how he’s annoying and acts like his girlfriend, whinging when Ben goes out without him!

What really started up my hatred of Kevin again was when Ben told me how Kevin had wanted to delay sorting out our rooms for next year because he wanted to fix it so he got the basement. AAARRGGHH!!! He bloody well got it anyway! Bastard! He apparently wants it because he’s got the biggest speakers. Biggest head more like.

On Thursday I sat on the grass at Storthes Hall all day with Jonas and Dave because it was really nice and warm and sunny so we decided to have a BBQ. Jonas brought his guitar too. We were later joined by Archie, Jen, Alexa and a few others so it was quite a good afternoon. I got pretty sunburnt though.

I had a fieldtrip to Castleton in Derbyshire on Friday which wasn’t actually too bad. It was a nice day and we got to go in Peak Cavern and look at all the limestone landforms. Jen and I spoke to more of the Geography people and we got drenched by ducks flying over us.

Jonas went to Gainsborough this weekend for a christening and someone’s birthday. I really, really missed him. I could’ve gone but I only had 3 days to research and do coursework from the fieldtrip, plus it seems like a family thing.

Jonas did text me saying he missed me all night and he’d come and pick me up but I had to say no, even though I was very tempted cos I really wanted to see him. He rang me too and said he was really disappointed I couldn’t go. He said he’d be bored at the christening and stuff without me and said “I love you” before he went. He tried loads to persuade me and said he was looking forward to seeing me a lot so I felt really guilty for not going. I got my work done though.

That evening I went up to the Arb with Archie and Hazel. Archie was being evil about the study room in our house but did say Kevin doesn’t deserve the basement. He also said that Jen’s always trying to start arguments.

Today there was a bike race one and I’ve just had a big yellow Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopter land outside my room.

Bye!

I’ve got over my stupid insecure worryings – 12th May 2002

Sunday 12th  I’ve spent almost all week with Jonas and I’ve got over my stupid insecure worryings. I really, really love him and being with him and he makes me sooo happy! 🙂 Mmm!

Jonas came out with me and my mates to Visage on Tuesday. I was really pleased when he said he would and it was a pretty good night. I had someone to take the piss out of all the crappy dancey music with and he was all cuddly and kissy and nice and we had nice proper snogs. He’s got bright red hair now too. We dyed it again! I didn’t want to leave him the next morning at all when I went to uni but I got a big hug and kiss off him. 🙂

Jonas didn’t come out on Thursday. Pierced Sam was there and he said hi and kissed me on the cheek. Hazel said I’ll have to visit her next year and we can all meet at the bottom of the hill to go out.

I went to Lincoln with Jonas again this weekend. His sister got bollocked by his mum for drinking cider on the park behind the house. Doh!

Bye!
