Drinking, Smoking, Snogging, Fighting – 21st August 1998

Friday 21stEmma’s now had Daz O’Brien on the phone to warn her off Howler. He’s jealous coz he supposedly fancies Emma too! They’re all going to the cinema tonight. I’ve decided not to coz: – it’s in Wigan with people I don’t really know – Mum’ll worry so I’ll feel guilty – I still don’t feel 100% – Howler was taking the piss out of my name and saving bonds and stuff on the phone last night – I haven’t got the energy – I can’t think straight so I couldn’t get Howler back as well as I probably normally could. I did go round to Emma’s before and just got off the bus here whilst she, Ralph and Freddie carried on to town. Freddie’s after Suzanna the Slapper tonight and so’s another lad. Howler, Daz and Ralph (possibly) are after Emma. Damn, I might be missing a fight. I need some entertainment! Never mind. Whilst Ralph went off with Emma on the way to the bus stop,…

We Discovered a Place Called Twatt! – 1st-7th August 1998

Saturday 1stSpent most of the day travelling then stopped here at the Royal Dunkeld Hotel. There was a Scottie dog here called Fergus at the same time as us. I thought I had a brain tuma [Oh, come on. I was a better speller than that.] coz I’d had a headache all day but Mum and Dad said it was sinusitis coz it was in my nose too. At tea there was this man with really bad B.O. and we had to move coz Abby was nearly sick! BYE! Sunday 2nd I got even more worried about my brain as I had another headache. We stayed overnight ay my cousins’ house in Wick but their family went away so we didn’t see them then. When we got there we realised that the tickets for the ferry to Orkney were gone so Mum had to sort it out. I needed a hug for some reason and started wishing I had a boyfriend. I dunno what brought it on but…

I might never get married. Who knows?! – 20th April 1998

Monday 20thP. [Period.] It’s scary how fast time seems to be going at the moment. It hardly seems any time at all since I first started school in Year 7 and now I’m in Year 10 and more than half way through. It seems ages away until my major GCSE exams but everything is going so quickly. Back at school today. Back to normal. Normal shouldn’t be being at school but term time is the way it is more than anything else and it’s the routine I’ve got used to. I’d rather we had more holidays, even with the boring bits. That’s one advantage about school – I never seem to get bored. I mean, I don’t like some of the lessons much but I’m always doing something. Then at lunch and break I can catch up on all the gossip or watch Ralph and co playing sad little ball games on the tennis courts. I suppose if we didn’t have school then I would never have known…

He was nothing compared to Ralph! – 14th April 1998

Tuesday 14thWe went ice skating today. There were loads if girls and Freddie. There was me, Emma, Rach, Georgia, Lena, Olivia, Rach’s sister and her mate and then Freddie. It was quite good actually and there was this lad in a green coat (who looked a bit like Ewan Swann) who kept “accidentally” falling into me. They all thought he fancied me. Maybe he did but he didn’t stand much of a chance coz he was nothing compared to Ralph! It’s snowing really heavily and it’s gone quite deep now. I really want a snowball fight with my mates tomorrow but I don’t think that there’s much chance of that happening coz Mum’s making me go shopping for new school stuff tomorrow and Abby and I have got a dentist appointment too. What a fun day I’m gonna have – NOT! I’m really worried that I’m going to run out of time to do my homework as well. I’ve only got two pieces but they’re really long and…
