Was yesterday and I had a lovely day :) Got so many nice presents and omg, omg…
I HAVE MY CAMERA! It’s a Nikon D3000 and it’s beautiful. The 3000 is a step up from a D60 which was my original choice. However the D3000 has a bigger screen on the back, and less buttons, but apart from that there pretty similar. I’ve not tested it out properly yet, just been snapping away at things around the house.
Other wonderful prezzies include, a £50 Topshop voucher AND a 4 month LoveFilm voucher from my brother and sis. Lots of money from the rellies. Bracelets galore! I must be a bracelet type person. My mum and dad bought be a charm one from Links of London with an 18 charm and a G charm. I love it! You can add charms for the things you do in life, like graduate, or learn to drive etc. My amazing friends bought be all sorts of goodies, bangles, a purse, a belt, a necklace….
Josh was so sweet, he had flowers delivered to my house in the morning! And bought be a pair of Karen Millen black heels!!!! Which I absolutely adore and they must have cost him so so much but they’re perfect. He has good taste in shoes. I don’t know when I’ll wear them cos I wouldn’t want to ruin them. I’ll post a photo up later :)
I went for a meal with the family in the evening, we went to Nutter’s (which is Andrew Nutters restaurant if anyone has heard of him) And properly had the best meal of my life. Everything arrived on the plate is such style I didn’t want to eat it! Best of all my sister ordered the cheese board for dessert and Andrew himself came out from the kitchen to explain all the different cheeses to her! He’s not super famous but I did feel like I was with a celebrity. Ha ha.
BUT, the party continues, oh yes, I kid you not….
Tonight is GREENDAY! Woooo! So excited, there a pretty rich band so I’m expecting smoke machines at the least…
and Saturday is Hard Rock Cafe day! Gunna paint the town red! Quite literally, because my dress is red and I’m sure it’s going to rain.
I spent my day painting. Yes, ALL day. I think I’m trying to find anything to do apart from English coursework or Psychology work. And I’m kidding myself by thinking all the painting crap I did will count towards Graphics work, and that I can use pieces as backgrounds if I scan them in. I wont do this. I actually did some cool things with cardboard squares and acrylics and painting in lines and doing some watercolour stuff too. Just practising really, If I do scan them in, I’ll show you all.
I’m 18 on Thursday!! Ahhh! And I opened my first birthday card today (because i didn’t know it was a birthday card, it arrived in the mail…) and inside was a rather generous cheque from my uncle :) Lovveee having rich rellies. I felt the leap from 16-17, I really grew up that year. So you never know, I could be in my slippers sipping scotch and reading Knitters Weekly this time next year.
The stitches in my stomach are peeling off. They aren’t proper stitches, just these super strong sticker things. I’m down to 5! I’m a little put out that I might not be able to squeeze in at the front and mosh out at Greenday. Josh wont actually let me in case someone elbows me in the stomach, which is fair enough. But the tickets cost me (my mum) so so so much especially to buy standing and I don’t want to see 3 little imps on a stage.
Feeling a bit left out at the moment, I have a week off college because of appendicitis and now all my friends seem to be avoiding me. Yes maybe they all went shopping together for ME, and for MY birthday, and it would have made no sense for me to go with them, but still…. I’m missing people, I’ve been pretty bored.
In other news, I did buy a new coat today :) Well, mum did. As an early present. It’s nice to have a winter/autumn coat now to wrap up in. It’s a pale grey which i know i will get dirty in half an hour of wearing it. Or I’ll go all day to be careful to keep it looking nice and someone else will trip and spill their drink on it, or something.
I was also supposed to do loads of work today and that didn’t happen. I’m convinced I’ll go back to college and be soooo behind and have all my tutors on my case for not keeping up. A letter came through the post today about how low my attendance is. It actually said “We are aware reasons have been given for the lack of attendance…” Yeah. How about me being in hospital. Idiots. Oh it’s okay I’ll just hobble into college on a zimmer as not to let my attendance percentage slip.
Is on!! Yeyyyy… the highlight of my very boring days.
I’m missing college! Not the work as such, but the people and my friends and just doing something. The un-employed must get soooo bored. I’m kinda hoping I’ll be working this Saturday, I’m going to ring the pub tomorrow, but seen as though I haven’t even started yet, and that I need next weekend off, and the weekend after that….I’m not sure I’ll even have a job.
In some ways, I sort of miss all the stupid drama and catty behaviour of high school.
I never thought i would say that because it used to drive me insane. I would never want to go back to that. I didn’t do any of the silly rumours and arguments, but you always end up wound up in it all. And back then bitching actually hurt. If someone told me now that i was “self absorbed and a bitch” I’d probably be like, “Yeahh your quite right.” Cos i just wouldn’t care. Now we’ve all become a lot more thick skinned. We’re growing up and realising there’s no point to it and people that still want to do all that crap have been shut out. Or at least they have in my social group. I don’t have to deal with that stuff any more.
I can remember high school being a time where i had to fight to stay in a relationship with my boyfriend because there was so many people trying to get involved. You can’t live your life properly in High School it’s all out there, and if it’s not, then someone will make something up anyway. People are interested. They want to know who your seeing and when and why and show you how many people your hurting along the way. But I do sometimes miss having to (in Cheryl Cole’s words) Fight for this Love.
Believe me a nice quiet night in with a pizza and a dvd with Josh is actually possible now. We’re completely closer than we have ever been before and much more grounded. We made shitty foundations to our relationship. Built on sand…… but we’ve made it work. I don’t know how! But we did it. And all the other people (both girls and guys) who wanted to be involved aren’t there any more. They have left us to it….finally. But it’s when you’ve got all that “competition” and bad stuff is going on that makes you realise how much you love that person. And I know for a fact I wouldn’t have put up with the year of being messed around if I hadn’t been in love, I just wouldn’t have fought as hard as i did. I’m glad i did.
High School is pretty much something everyone should do. It teaches you a lot. Trust me though……you’d have to pay me millions to go back there.
Feeling much better today. ‘In myself’ Haha, I’m still hobbling around like a invalid.
I love being able to watch This Morning and Loose Women everyday :)
My mum’s just gone off to work, she had all yesterday off and last Friday with me so she needs to go earn pennies. She’s been waiting on me hand and foot recently and i feel a bit guilty, even if it’s hard for me to just jump up and get stuff for myself i wish i could.
Ok, so after i thought i was over my flu…. Thursday night came and i felt worse than ever before. I had this blinding constant pain in my stomach, and was throwing up all night. At about 4 in the morning my parents took me to A&E where i spent 5mins in the waiting room before passing out and having to be wheeled off to a room to get checked over. After blood tests, urine tests and the like…..and 3 hours later…..the doctor arrived and told me i had a bladder infection. Gave me pills and sent me home.
The next day was pretty much the same. I threw up any pills i took and basically felt even worse. So that night was ambulance time! Which i tell you, is NOT exciting. It’s awful. If you ever get the choice, DO NOT travel in an ambulance. You kinda expect the ride to be smooth for patients who are dying and such. It wasn’t. It was boiling hot and shaky and horrible. Things were flying off the walls and i nearly passed out again and threw up too. They didn’t have the siren on cos it was late at night and there wasn’t much traffic anyway.
So…back in A&E for hours. I was referred to a surgeon who told me it was probably appendicitis and they were just waiting for a bed for me.
They put me on a drip thankfully so i didn’t have to risk throwing up painkillers again. I had a night there getting some rest before i saw my surgeon the next day. He said they weren’t 100% sure it was my appendix, but he wanted to cut me open and have a look. That was a bit scary.
A long story later, i had the op - they took it out (it was extremely inflamed apparently!) and I’m just struggling now with the pain and effort it takes to move around. My stomach kills when i cough and I’ve a big nasty scar but i guess things could be a lot lot worse.
Everyone’s been super nice though and brought me magazines and chocolates :)
I’ve spent the day watching Gilmore Girls and snivelling. My swine flu has morphed into a terrible cold which i know will last for weeks, because my colds always do. Which will do nothing for my social status, especially after missing two days of college, I don’t know where I’m up to with work, and I’m sure people won’t be too willing to catch me up if I’m sniffing and coughing all over them.
I’m thinking I’ll walk back into all my lessons in the same way. By announcing “Sorry I’ve missed lessons but I’ve had Swine Flu and I’m not quite sure I’m over it yet….” And see people withdraw from me in horror! Mwhahaha
If it was/is swine flu, it’s nothing to do scared of. It’s no worse than regular illness. Saying that, it could just have been regular illness.
I’ve also been thinking about an Art project where we have to produce a short film with something that shows our personality and private lives. So…..SEXXX TAPPE. Just kidding! I havn’t really had time to put anything together, not even thoughts but Malcolm’s no monster so I’m not scared of missing his deadlines. I’ll charm my way out of it. Haha. No, I’ll just use the flu excuse again.
I’ve not been keeping up to date with my fashion talk either. Just posting the occasional photo. I promised some of my art work too, so if your lucky….. one day ;)
I’ve nearly finished The Time Traveller’s Wife and it’s gotten to a really really good part. And I hate Gomez for no reason. I keep picture Charisse as really really fat too. Is she in the film? But I love Henry, I want to marry Henry!
I’m suffering for last night and i didn’t even drink! Woke up with the biggest headache EVER and a sore throat, chest and cough. So I’m having a day in bed to try and make myself better because i really don’t want a cold.
Funny thing is, Danny also woke up this morning with a big headache, so he told me. Weird.
I’m off out to Pizza Express with people for my friends 18th :)
Were planning on taking balloons and party poppers, glittery things and a pink tiara for him to wear too! The whole sha-bang! Pizza Express even promised to stick candles in his dessert. Bless. So I’m looking forward to that.
Then were going on to see his boyfriends apartment in Manchester, have a few drinks there before we stumble home on some night bus (oh no) and then it’s off for a pub crawl in Littleborough. Haha, oh dear, I’m not an alcoholic I swear, I’ll probably keel over after 3 drinks anyway and someone will have to carry me home while I giggle.
This is me and the birthday boy on a different drunk occasion……
he likes to take clothes off….I like to pull faces, dance and get sweaty.
And yepp… its gorgeous! And yepp… it’s too big! I can just about keep it on my thumb or index finger without it flying off, but the damn listing on ebay lied! Told me it was a size P and my ring finger is a Q (don’t ask me how I know) so I was worried it would be too small! Ah never mind, I’ll just pick up one of those plastic things that makes your rings fit and see if that works.
I want to go take all my make up off but my dad’s in the bathroom having a bath. Although… he shouldn’t be that long, he just fills up the tub, jumps in, splashes and jumps out again. And I swear when he has a shower he just walks through it. Me and my mum on the other hand, can spend a full hour in a bath.
I like to see my fingers go wrinkly.
Right now I’m just pratting about on YouTube trying to find stuff to watch.
Had my ultra sound today, followed by a ECG ………IT’S A BOY!
I’m just kidding, my heart is fine. Still there.
I had this medical student in the room too, it was like a awkward Scrubs moment, but she was very nice and there was only one of her. The bad news is they have referred me to the Adult Hospital now, so in another 6 months I have to go there and do the same stuff all again. But to be honest I would have been pretty scared for my Doctor to just say…”All is well, have a nice life now…” And that be that. Because what happens when I get all old, my heart might not stand up to getting grey hairs.
I neeeed to start my English essay, or at least make notes so I can show my tutor tomorrow and she wont rip my head off for not being committed. I also should revise for the exam I’m re-sitting in January.
But I’m too caught up on my plans for the weekend. I neeeed to go out.
I may have the dress for my 18th. It’s just so hard to get into and sort of…move in. There’s no way I could possibly eat in it.
My word of the day is: Awkward - because I’ve used it loads today for some reason. I think it sums up Monday nicely.
I’m watching Michael McIntyre with a cuppa green tea and the feeling that i don’t have to go to college tomorrow! Yey!
I also saw Josh tonight too even if it was for like 2 minutes. We watched X-factor which is good ‘cos its about the only programme we can watch together without arguments. Haha, apart from he thinks Danyl will win and I think he’s crap. I wanted the American guy to go through!! Also I want to see Surrogates next Orange Wednesdays, and he want’s to see Gamer. Lets see who’ll win……… (me)
The really exciting news, is that I have new shoes :) They’re for my 18th, and I’m only now waiting for my dress to arrive pronto through the post and just maybe….I’ll have my outfit sorted? I’ve been strutting around the house trying to break them in and even though they’re 5 inchers, I’m doing okay. I shoot up to a giant 6 foot in them. Which I don’t care about I actually love being tall, I feel important! But I doubt my boyfriend will be happy, he’s dead on 6 foot now and it’s going to be strange when I don’t have to crane my neck up to see him any more.
I have my hospital appointment on Monday and hopefully it will be my last one….After I hit 18 I’m not allowed in the children’s hospital any more :( And if my heart needs more attention, I’m being kicked out and booked into the adult ward. Geeze. But the last time I had a check up everything was A-OK and my doctor was like, yeah sure..you wont be coming here much longer. I think it’s cool how I still have the same doctor who performed my operation when I was little. Back then, it was the first heart surgery he had ever done (which also makes me pretty special to him ha ha) and now, he’s like…80 or something. And I get to look at my heart! (which I’m telling you is AMAZING. No wonder mums cry at baby scans) But I don’t understand what it means. If theres a big black cloudy area…I know that’s not good. And if you can see the four chambers…. then that is good. But that’s the extent of my knowledge. Have your fingers crossed for me :)
