Friday, October 07, 2005

High school is so cool.
It absolutely ROCKS!!

Everyone is so cool and they are all really funny too. I don't know why I was worrying so much!!

Last day of FREEDOM!! 

Tuesday, August 23, 2005

Today is my last day of holidays before I go to my new school.
I am very nervous, but at the same time excited!!
I think I will have a good time at high school!

Keys to the house 

Yesterday, Louise and I went to get some keys cut, for ME!!
I am sooooooo excited, I keep playing with them in my pocket. The reason why I am so excited is because having keys is a sign that I have more responsibility and trust. (and also that i don't have to hang around waiting for someone to answer the door!)
Then today, Louise and I went to John Lewis and I got a COOl keyring!

Today Louise was teaching at a health club called Homes place.
While she was teaching, Frank and I went swimming. The changing rooms were really good, the pool was so good and really clean! When Frank and I got bored of swimming, we went into the spa!
I was so hot, it was like climbing into a bathand the bubbles felt really good on your skin.
When we had finished our swim we had a shower. The showers were really good, you got your own special cubical to shower in, and you could change the temperature (not thats thats anything new for a shower, but it's good for a pool!)
I also explored the steam room and sauna, they were really cool, butI didn't go in because you had to be over 16. Overall, my score of the place was 10/10, there was nothing bad about it at all!

Today my dad told me about this cool new thing called Skype.
The way I was explaining it to my friends was that it is like msn mixed in with a phone! You get a headset (like the one in the directline adverts!!) and you sign on like msn, but instead of a typed conversation, you talk to each other. It's free and better quality than phone!

New stuff!! 

Today I went shopping with my stepmum.
I got new trousers (which were only £6), They are an olive colour, cord!! They are really cool!
I also got new trainers today, they are brown, with blue stripes. They are cool too!
I love geting new stuf (but so does everyone I guess!!)!!!

Waving Goodbye 

Wednesday, August 17, 2005

Today was my brother and sister's first day back at school.
Because I am now at high school, my holidays are slightly different!
My sister was moaning most of her last week of holidays about how unfair it is that I am getting a extra week, (obviously I think it's fair!!!) But I explained to her that when she goes to high school, she will get and extra week. But, after all that explaining and convincing her that it was fair that I should get an extra week, and that there was nothing that we could of done, even if I had wanted to go to school a week early, I still felt kind of bad, lying in bed while she had to get up, eating a lovely bacon sandwich while she brushed her teeth and standing at the door a 08:30, waving her off, in my pajamas!!
I hope she has fun today!

Going to High school 

Tuesday, August 16, 2005

I bet that I've written this loads of times, but I'm really going to try to write more on my blog, It's terrible! I haven't written since May!
I was thinking "whats the point of writing on my blog if no one reads it!" but then I thought, "no one is going to read it if I don't write anything!"
This is me trying to make amends!!

I did loads of tests to get into some schools.
Mum wanted me to get a bursary. I got quite a good ones.
The best bursary was to a school called George watsons. Most people probably would of said, "well, if she has got such a good bursary to a good school then we'll send her there", but my mum's not like that, she really wants the best for me. So she took AGES to choose which school was best for me. I'm a catholic, so the state school, that was the other choice, is called St Thomas of Aquins, it is a catholic school. So, mum thought that it would be a good idea for me to go there.....and so on............you get the picture! I tried my best to stay out of the decision, I really didn't mind either way, both schools had good points..... and bad.
FINALLY mum came to a decision, I was to go to George Watons.
I got my uniform, which is : a maroon and greenish kilt, a maroon blazer, maroon and white tie, navy pullover, navy tights and black shoes! Some people moan about wearing uniforms, I don't mind, the uniform isn't exactly the most comfy thing in the world, but it's not really UN-comfortable as such either! At least no one can comment about what I'm wearing, because they're wearing exactly the same as me!

The holidays have gone SO quickly!! Alice (my sister) is moaning about the fact that I have got an extra weeks holiday (she goes back tomorrow, I go back next week!).
At the start we went to france for two weeks, which was good, but it sucked up a whole TWO weeks of precious holiday time, the time in france only felt like a few days. The whole holiday feels like its on >>> fastforward! Then I had a week to see my dad before I went away to a guide camp for a week in Darby, england! It was really fun. I was staying in a tent with four other girls, they are all really nice. Though we didn't really make any new friends (as such) we made better friends with each other!
We took the train down to a place called Darby, where a coach picked us up and took us to the site!
There was 10,000 scouts and guides camping with us. Though not in the same tent!!!!. We put up our tents, went to the opening ceremony, and then slept! The next morning we did our activities, mine was canoing! Every day we did two activities, one in the morning and one in the afternoon!
Every night there was a disco on , They were really fun!! We met LOADS of new people !

When I got off the train, my uncle,aunt, dad,mum and brother were all there to meet me. It was a really nice surprise because I didn't know that my uncle and aunt were up (they live in London) and I don't usually see my dad and mum together!
We had a really nice meal back at the house, where everyone had a laugh, but I was shattered! I was the first one to go to bed, even though the meal was for me!!

The next day we went out for lunch with my uncle and aunt and then we played Pitch and Putt, that was fun.
The next day we left to go Up north to visit my mum's cousin and his wife. They have a lovely house and two Beautiful dogs who we took on walks every morning. We were only up for two days, but we must of walked about sixteen miles! The walks were great fun and the scenery was BREATH TAKING!

After that we went to dads. Frank (a rally good family friend, who is great fun!!) took us "kids" swimming in the commonwealth, where, I am very pleased to say, I jumped of the third diving board, which is 5 meters!!

that's me up to date for now, hope fully I will get around to writing about more relevant things next time!!

At school we are doing loads of tests before we go to High School. So I did my level E reading test. It was sooooo EASY!! I passed with 26 out of 30 in the first one and 27 out of 30 in the second one. Most of the mistakes were stupid ones!

My little sister 

Tuesday, May 17, 2005

I haven't written much in my blog for a while because I have been very busy.
Recently my step-mum (Louise) has had a baby girl, (this means that she is my 1/2 sister)
I am very excited, even though I already have to younger siblings, I was still quite young when they were born. For this little one I am nearly 12 years older than her. She was born on St Patrick's day. She is so cute and she giggles at me and I am really happy because I am old enough to look after her when dad is working and Louise is out (don't worry, my dad works from home).At first all she wanted to do was eat, sleep and cry but now she is more aware of what is going on around her and she is getting into the 'rhythm of life' LOL.

House work 

Saturday, February 12, 2005

Yesterday was my mum's birthday. For a present I gave her myself as kind of house-worker.
I am also working on a painting for my mum.
Doing the house work was quite fun; stuff like hoovering is OK but doing the washing-up is soooooooo boring!!
