Hi peeps - thanks for all your kind messages about the exam :-) Feels so good knowing it's over and I thought that title is pretty apt for today ;-)
So tomorrow will be 7 years since the Truro gig. I don't know if I'll be online on Sunday so here's the write up today :-)
MARCH 18TH TRURO HALL FOR CORNWALL
Not much to report from Truro or am I bluffing? Trina and I went home after Cardiff, just for the one night though, cos we were off again. This time to Cornwall a little closer to home :-) We arrived fairly early, not everyone that we had met at Gloucester/Cardiff were making it to this gig, but it was nice to meet some new people.
We decided to stand outside the stage door. For the main reason that as we were in the cafe we saw Mike Crossley and Martin Groves (editor - Martin was security blokie) walk past. We had been standing there for a while when the door opened. Out stepped Jason and Matt Exelby (rhythm guitarist). Jason turned to look at the crowd and saw me first and said hello. I decided to have another go at this picture taking business. I actually told him he wasn't looking for the last one! (editors note - why god why??) Thank god it wasn't Roger, otherwise I would have lost it!! When Trina took the picture people asked him for his autograph. We got him to sign one of our Happiness? covers. Then I asked him if he got ribbed. His face for a split second was of total shock!! He soon realised what I meant and said no! I had meant is he getting teased by the other band members as he is the only person getting asked for autographs etc. Still not to worry at least he couldn't forget me now lol.
Jason left to get a drink, (his words!), and we waited for Roger to turn up. As we were waiting a blonde haired girl and her friend who had just turned up, started talking about the signatures. First was Treana's and as she is Cornish they talked about her for a while. Then the next was Jason's. The friend said, 'whose that?' 'Jason Falloon the guitarist'. 'oh' 'Yeah I know well everyone else was asking for his autographs so I thought I would.' This annoyed me!! Don't ask me why it just did!!
Anyway when Roger did turn up, it was quite late and there was a lot of people waiting for him. So I decided not to try for anything and just took a few pictures. As so did Trina. She was not amused as Debbie (his partner) was with him and walked right in front of Trina's camera when she was trying to take a pic. We had a feeling he wouldn't come back out as it was too late. So we went to get our place in the queue.
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), I couldn't stand still and kept checking outside to see if Roger was going to come back out. The first time I went out a select few were still there and we cornered Matt when he appeared, as to whether Roger was coming back out or not. He said he probably wasn't going too as he was probably going to eat in. I went back to tell Trina what Matt had just said. Not long afterwards Roger's blue van went down to park outside. Seeing this inside I went out to see what was going on. Me and Sarah tried ringing Trina to tell her he was coming out. Unfortunately she thought we were telling her about the van and didn't answer her phone. The question is what would you do? Go and tell your best mate or wait for Roger!! If you agree with what I did please tell me.......
There was literally six of us and he came out. A gentleman asked me to take his picture with him. So I did. I then asked the bloke if he could do the same for me, which he agreed too!! So I asked Roger if I could have my picture taken with him. Martin was trying desperately to get him in the van. But Roger stopped walking, bent down to my level and the picture was taken (editor see number 7)!! OH MY GOD I can still remember when that was processed how much I screamed and cried lol
Anyway shocked and stunned I wanted to run and tell Trina but I managed to calm down enough to take another picture of him. I ran in and told Trina what had just happened. She couldn't believe it and was totally annoyed that she was not there!! You can't blame her really, (NB: She has since managed to have her picture taken with him :-)
Once again the gig was brilliant!! Roger and the band all acted as though they had taken something, they were so UP! Mind you this is the only gig so far to have a barrier between us and the stage :( Massive gap in fact!! Here come the best bits:
- The change in set list. He took People on Streets out and replaced it with I Want to Break Free. When he saw us singing it, he turned the microphone round on it's stand and told us to sing it :-)
- When he announced the band during London Town......as usual we went mad over Jason. Roger saw this and told us he taught him everything he knows........bless :-)
- He said something about his mum being there too!
That was it apart from taking Jason's picture outside and he smiled afterwards as usual *rolls eyes* Mike gave me this awful look for taking Jason's pic. Probably jealous ;-) Unfortuantely not only did the gig have a barrier but we weren't allowed to take pictures either, but we did manage to get a few ;-)
Well that's it for now peeps, more on the 28th March :-( it was such a long gap and it was flippin' awful!! Ten days in fact!!
I'm away for the weekend so have a good one peeps and happy st patrick's day to you all :-)
god it's cold brrrrrrrr........
Hiya peeps - just thought I'd post a quick entry to let you all know..........
I PASSED woohoo :-) 86%!!!
1 down 3 more to go - gonna do information and communication (aka emails and the web, should be a doddle)!!
Just thought you'd like to know!! Thanks for the good wishes.......*hugs* to you all!!
Thursday, 16 March 2006
Hiya everyone - well I have some GREAT news!! I did the diagnostic test today which actually has a lot more questions than the real test and I scored 90% :-) Which means I would've passed had it been the real thing!! P rung earlier and when team leader told her it was my test tomorrow apparently she said, tell her she'll be fine!! Her way of wishing me luck I guess LOL..........Anyway just wanted to share that with you!! So onwards and back to 16/03/99...................
MARCH 16TH CARDIFF COAL EXCHANGE
Well after the Gloucester gig I had an hours sleep!! But I felt totally alive and awake, ready for another fantastic concert. This time off to Cardiff. We met my Irish pen pal who had flown over and not told her parents!! Then we met up with Trina's pen pal whose house we were all staying at.........She dropped us of at the Coal Exchange building and the same people who were first in the queue the day before were there again!! We managed to find out the actual layout of the building. There where two doors at the front and none round the back. So thankfully he had to be dropped off somewhere near where we were standing.
The hours and minutes went past, evenutally the blue van (editors note - that's Roger's van :-), was spotted!! This parked up and no-one apart from the driver got out!! After a long pause the driver got back in and drove off, everybody, apart from me, were running here there and everywhere chasing it!! In the end they positioned a person on each corner. It was quite amusing, like some military operation. At one point whilst we were waiting we heard a shunt between two cars and looked at Lisa who was standing on that corner and she pointed to the cars and laughed.
Before all that happened though I have forgotten to tell you that Treana turned up and people got her to sign stuff. She signed my Electric Fire cd cover. Then after a long pause, the white Star Line van turned up, meaning one thing, the band and more importantly for me - Jason!! The band got out and everyone apart from Jason managed to get inside. So where was Jason?? Surrounded by about 10/15 people all wanting autographs and photos. He was so sweet, he kept saying that he had to go inside for the sound check. I managed to get him to sign my Electric Fire cd cover, then I had my picture taken with him. Then if that wasn't enough as he was going in, I told him that he played well last night and thanked him :-) He grinned back at me and said thanks!! Believe it or not though after all that waiting I found out from Trina who took the picture that he wasn't looking!! Noooooooooo.........Paula, my irish pal, had her picture taken with him too and sent me a copy. He's looking at me in her's and at her in mine LOL............
Still low and behold Roger turned up. I decided not to bother to try and get any autographs or photos cos a lot of people were!! Trina did try though and she felt like he was ignoring her on purpose.........reason being she held my cd cover out and he looked at it, but signed the ticket next to her. Can you even begin to imagine what that must've felt like? He went in for the sound check.
When he was coming back out, we could see him through the door, so I managed to get myself on the ledge and lean over the wall to catch him as he came out. When he opened the door, I called out to him and he looked in my direction. And you will not believe what happened next...........He looked at me, (as I've already mentioned but thought I should again and said 'Oh I missed you out earlier' and signed my cd cover. It was the same cover Trina had been holding, but she was holding it differently to me and it was also a different person, so it made me wonder what he was thinking but OH MY GOD!! The first time I ask for his autograph and not only did he sign it but he spoke to me! ARrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
The gig was Brilliant!! Although the lights were not!! Roger and the band were on fine form. Now I shan't bore you with loads of details again, so here is the highlights:
- When Roger started Happiness he sang the wrong words, but Jason mouthed the wrong words too........silly man!! We helped Roger remember that one.
- Some stupid bloke jumped the stage and Rog commented on it but I can't remember what he said!!
- When Radio Ga Ga finished (last song on the set list), I yelled at Jason for his plectrum, I did this for a few times but he didn't hear me. So I was going to give up when Trina made me continue. When he finally looked at me I asked if I could please have his plectrum? He took it from under his tongue and replied that it was a bit wet!! I said, so?? He chucked it to me and I dropped it and frantically searched on the floor amongst all the coats for it. When I finally found it I was so chuffed.........it was still wet (editors note - Oh dear lord!!) Trina told me afterwards he looked a bit worried.
Roger left not long afterwards, but there was no point trying to get near him, there was so many people around. They all left after Roger did, but I decided I wanted to see Jason, so I made Clare (trina's pen pal), Paula and Trina wait!! When he did come out I told him I had found the plectrum and thanked him for it. (Editor - I am so cringing right now what was I thinking??!!) His reply was nice one and gave me the thumbs up sign :-) Wow another fantastic day/night!! Can Truro top that in a couple of days??
Well you'll find out tomorrow hopefully!! As I'm going away on Saturday (back Sunday), I shall post Truro either tomorrow or Sunday!!
Until then - wish me luck with the exam tomorrow and happy st paddy's day to any of you irish guys out there for tomorrow :-)
Wednesday, 15 March 2006
Well I wanted to share this tour diary with you last year and completely forgot but I won't forget this year ;-)
1999 - a pretty good year for me!! Followed Roger around on tour whilst I was unemployed ;-), got a job at the council, year of the eclipse - that was the day I started my job!! I'm sure there were other good things but I can't remember them now LOL.........
Anyway here's the diary as I wrote it back then so forgive me for the writing..........
March 15th - Gloucester Guildhall
The start of the tour!! We set off quite early with a few train changes to make! I couldn't listen to Electric Fire on the walkman as it was making me too nervous just thinking about it.
Got to Gloucester and on our way to the B&B took a look at the queue. Familiar faces but only about 5/6 people there. Once checked into the B&B we went back to the Guildhall to queue. Got there at 1.30pm. Six people in front of us, they were, Lisa, Sarah, Helen, Brenda, Alison, and Sarah. Between them they kept checking the back entrance. Trina and I hadn't eaten much so I went off to get something to eat. After a little walk and a Macdonald's in hand, I went back to the queue. OH MY GOD!! No-one was there........Lots of things entered my mind......had they been let in early? Were they meeting Roger? Where were they? (Editors note - please remember this was before EVERYONE had mobile phones!!). All of a sudden Trina's walking up to me. Apparently he had just gone in, was sound-checking and was due out at any moment. So we made our way to join the others and listened to him sound checking. Whilst waiting we heard practically the whole set, so we knew he was gonna do Under Pressure and other stuff, BRILLIANT!!
Eventually he came out!! He looked so perfect, he was wearing proper glasses so you could see his blue eyes. GORGEOUS! We managed to get him to sign stuff, well Trina did. She pushed her way through and he signed her Electric Fire cd cover. He also brushed fingers as he took the pen from her!! He signed Lisa's leg, which she went and had tattoed. It looks good, if you ever meet her ask her if you can see it. Anyway after that was over there was a long wait till the concert actually started. But even though all 8 of us had left the queue we were still in front when we went back :-)
The gig started about twenty past eight when Roger's guest Treana Morris came on. (Editors note - She's now the singer for a band called Wire Daisies - look them up their really good :-) He found her in a pub in Cornwall apparently!! Now before Roger comes on I'm going to tell you another story. I took a liking to his guitarist in the first ever gig I went too. His name was Jason Falloon. At the time one of my penpals sent me a pic of him from the Shepherds bush Empire gig 14/10/98 so I was looking for him from what he looked like in that pic. When Roger was signing autographs I watched some of the other people coming out of the door.........desperate to see Jason. A bloke walks out and I think to myself, 'He looks like jason but it can't be he has too much hair.' We had made it to the front row and We Will Rock You, Roger's first song starts up. Guess what? It was Jason!! Anyway the whole concert had started but you could tell the band and roger were nervous!!
Just so I don't bore you stupid I shall only give you the highlights.
- He announced a song wrong.
- His flies were undone (many photos taken) *cough*
- He knocked a light off the stage
- When he came over to our side of the stage (we were stood on Jason's side), Sarah stroked Roger's leg. He glared at Trina who pointed to Sarah and said 'It was her not me!!' He grinned at Trina and at some point before anyone else shook her hand. I was livid!! It just wasn't fair!!
I was sharing moments with Jason though :-) and he always smiled at me after I took his photo. grrrr....
Believe this or not but Roger then came back over to the front and shook my hand Arrrrggggghhhhhhhhh........His hand shake is lovely, it's so firm he literally grabs your hand. Anyway what else happened? Oh yeah, Martin Chambers, drummer from the Pretenders was there!! Not much else happened except Jason shook my hand as he was walking off, (I had meant to ask for his plectrum!) His hand shake wasn't as firm as Roger's, it was sweaty. Sarah got his plectrum and Trina told me to ask her for it. So I did and I offered to pay money for it, but she gave it to me anyway. Oh my god I had Jason's plectrum. Wow what a night!!
After the gig we went round to the back exit, but we couldn't see Roger, what with security guards. We saw the band get into their van. After Roger had left Trina and I walked back to the B&B and looked forward to what the next day was going to have in store.
Tomorrow - Cardiff :-)
Hiya peeps well I shall be making two entries this evening as like I said in the previous entry it's 7 years since Trina and I followed Roger Taylor round the country!! More about that later ;-)
Right now I'm feelin' fairly stressed out!! Last night there was a web chat and a girl that annoys us turned up like she usually does. She posts her usual 'we can't understand a thing your saying' stuff and then she types something to one of the other girls and I flipped to be honest. She had told this other girl to shut up and ugh........it just got messy!! I'm moderator on the board and big boss wasn't there so I felt kinda responsible. Problem was I didn't have the ability to kick her out. Instead I sent her a private message asking her politely to leave. She ignored it. I asked her in the main chat to leave, she ignored it. She then starts posting about how she's received messages about large trout and thinks it's from me!! Well that was it I couldn't deal with it anymore and left!! I was fuming!! I haven't felt like that in ages. I rung Trina to get her to calm me down lol..........Well tis her job after all ;-)
When is all said and done though I feel as though I could've handled the situation better and not left in such a huff but there comes a point when you just can't take anymore!! If you know what I mean??! Big boss has banned her from the board now after last night's fiasco!!
I'm also stressed about this damn exam and I still feel I'm gonna fail. I should know more tomorrow as I have to do the diagnostic test and that gives a clearer view as to what the main test will be like!! Panic arrhhhhhh!!!
Tonight my computer is playing up. It's not loading up normally giving me options such as safe mode, normal mode, and others. Apparently I've deleted some file or another that's extremely important!! Well I'm sorry but b*****ks!! Why would I delete a file like that?? On top of everything I have no idea how you would access such a file..............
I give up! Especially if it means I need to do a system restore coz as usual I shall lose everything :-( Oooooo not if I get myself an MP3 player that would work and I could store all my music stuff onto it!!! Something to consider but for now I guess I'll just plod!!
P's off work this week due to breavement in the family at the weekend and the doctor signed her off. I asked E to give her my regards when she spoke to her on the phone. Apparently P was worried coz she'd left me alone on Monday. I shrugged my shoulders and carried on but it's nice to know she cares in her own strange little way :-) If K's not back next week then I shall be on my own again on Monday!! Hey ho!!
Anyway I shall leave this entry here and shall take you back 7 years ago this very day when I was 21 years old - 1999 what a year!!
Take care peeps
Sunday, 12 March 2006
Hiya everyone - can't believe I haven't updated since Tuesday!! I'm useless aren't I lol........don't answer that ;-) So what's been happening?? To be honest and quick - nothing!! So have a good week everyone.........lol only joking!!
Seriously nothing has been happening. Work is okay!! More of the usual moany people and stuff......got a bit of work to do when I go in tomorrow which is nice to know. T left the department on Thursday. I'm kinda glad in a way - her voice irritated me lol......When you don't talk much and listen to others having a conversation they can start to do your head in after a while!! She was alright otherwise!! Her section put up banners and balloons when she left on Wednesday for her to come into on Thursday. P couldn't believe the childishness about it all. I don't understand it to be fairly honest but I've never really been in an office that does stuff like that. The worst we did at Go was to send Graham a birthday card filled with those little hole punch things. He saw the funny side of it but was fairly annoyed as he'd had to hoover them up LOL........God I miss that place in some ways!! If I was still with them I'd have a lot more than 20 days annual leave that's for sure!! I'm trying to spare some of my leave for next year coz you never know what might happen. We have leave from april to march just in case you were wondering lol.
Talking of leave I must book the 19th June off this week :-) Trina and I were emailing as usual *tut tut* and I mentioned how B4 (channel 4's music prog on at 7am) had said the Foo Fighters were playing Hyde Park in the summer. I thought how cool would that be so I mentioned it to Trina in passing. As it turned out we (aka Trina, myself and Wayne) are going to Manchester to see them on the 18th June. As that's a Sunday we are gonna make a weekend of it. They are playing the Lancashire Cricket Ground and I've been there before. One of my ex's family had a 50th or something and they all live in Manchester and I went with them. Had the worst time of my live coz he got drunk and we argued pretty much all night!! But the next day there was a cricket match on and our balcony looked over the ground. Could've sat there all day and watched it - I don't even like cricket!!
Anyhoo what else has been happening?? The weekend has gone by in a complete and utter state of 'where did it go?' lol.....Today especially!! I've had enough of being out in the rain what with the last few days walking to work during it and so today I stayed in. But I haven't really done anything or achieved anything and it's now 9.41pm!! I have been slightly creative this weekend though. I've made 4 more banners and 2 wallpapers :-) I should post a banner so you can see what I mean but I can't be bothered to open that photobucket account just yet so I do apologise if you haven't got a clue what I mean!
Watched Wallace and Gromit today. Love that film - as if you didn't guess, what with the comments telling me they had won the oscar LOL.......I just think it's amazing (a bit like Harry Potter phenomenon) that someone can have a simple idea and look what it turns into!! I want to be able to do that.........but how?? That's the big question of course!! I guess I shall never know the answer.
*ouch* that was a bit deep huh? I've been downloading stuff too. I don't know why I bother coz I can't get it off the computer anyway LOL. Managed to get Paul and Queen doing Dragon Attack which they've been doing on their usa shows. It's funny coz I don't have a clue what the tour dates are for those and I think it's much better for me not to know otherwise I would be miserable!! I probably could've gone but I would be in much more debt than I am now!!
Oooo talking of tours *see that link that I just did crafty huh* Wednesday marks the 7 year anniversary of the Roger Taylor Electric Fire tour which Trina and I managed to attend 7 shows of :-) If I remember coz I forgot last year I shall try and share my tour diary and possibly some of our photos :-) Don't worry it doesn't go on that long and doesn't really include much about Roger, but you'll see that when I start sharing it!!
This week I have my ECDL exam and to say I'm panicking about it is probably an understatement. I was planning to catch up this weekend but that went out the window. So I shall have to do some at home during the week. Arrrrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhh...........I have this instinct that I'm gonna fail!! That's not good............
Well I shall leave you here for now.
Take care peeps
Tuesday, 7 March 2006
Hey everyone. Jeez what a day!! Is it the weekend yet? No, okay let's just keep going then LOL.........So here's the rest of what I got up to at the weekend and I did remember to put the lead into the computer today and have added the photos from the zoo - enjoy :)
Sunday - Trina and I did manage to get up at 9ish, had some brekkie, watched some of 'return of the champions' and decided it would be better for us to get out and have some fresh air instead of staying in and watching TV and doing nothing all day. So we went to catch the bus down town. As we were waiting we noticed the dark cloud forming and prayed it wouldn't hit us as neither of us were prepared for rain!!
The bus eventually arrived and we went into a few shops as Trina was looking for a new swimming cossie!! After looking in Debenhams we went for a walk by the harbour. All the time having a good ol' natter about nothing in particular and having a good laugh. I realised that when we're together we don't talk about normal stuff, just odd stuff and turn it into something that it wasn't to begin with. Tangents in other words. I won't go into what kind of tangents we went off on but it was flippin hysterical when we recalled what we had been talking about trust me ;) We walked along the pier and sat down at the end of it. Whilst we were there it did start hailing but didn't last long :) Not that we noticed LOL.......Eventually we moved and walked back to town and continued shopping.
Trina thought I was being very good by not spending all my money. At the end of the day when I owe her so much I could hardly spend in front of her could I? lol We went into Ottakers book shop and visited Costa Coffee at the top of the shop for a sandwhich and a cake :) Trina purchased the new Stephen King book for Wayne, I have to say reading the blurb it does sound very good - can't wait to read that one!! After food we went to woolies, a dvd shop and a clothes shop :)
Went back to Trina's, had a cuppa watched Saturday's Deal or No Deal but the DVD cut out before the end so we didn't know what had happened. (Managed to find out from Jez at work), then they brought me home!! I didn't want to come home, I feel very alone after spending the weekend with them two. Also my flat always feels big and cold :( So I just curled up on the sofa and watched Tv. Have you been watching Invasion? It was well cool on Sunday :) Apparently according to Jez it's gonna be even better next weekend.
Well I think that's it your all caught up. Yesterday I managed to do some exercises :) Today I couldn't be bothered but I'll make up for it tomorrow.
I walked to work today it was raining and as I was walking across the bridge I started to regret my decision. It was blowing a gale and my hands were cold trying to keep my big umbrella up :( I did go into work through the nearest door which means I have to walk up 4 flights of stairs. Puffed out is not the word for it LOL..........
Well I shall leave you here..............
Until next time - Take care everyone xx
Monday, 6 March 2006
Hey all - hope your ok :) I am listening to Queen radio but don't panic I shall try and keep the tangents down to a bear minimum!! I could be here all night otherwise. I'm afraid there are no pics with this entry coz muppet here forgot to load the camera lead in before she loaded up the computer doh!! So if I remember to do that tomorrow you can see the photos then ;)
So the weekend - where did it go? Friday I went to stay with Trina and Wayne. First we went and did Trina's weekly food shopping. Guess what I got?? A Wallace and Gromit tea caddy - it's smashing it is :) (Oooo billy squire and brian don't think I've heard this one!!) It kinda makes up for not being able to get the mug!! On the way back Wayne and I got our chippy tea and Trina had to cook her's as she's on a diet *mean laughter* We didn't do much during the evening. I managed to catch up on Hotel Babylon as Trina's been kind enough to video it for me!! Then as the American leg of Queen's tour started on Friday in Miami we decided to watch the Hyde Park DVD. Well we would've watched Return of the Champs but Roger looks so much better in Hyde Park ;) LOL
Saturday we managed to get up early and out just after 10am. I was impressed lol......We went to Paignton Zoo. I paid for us all to get in as I thought it might help to lower the bill that i owe trina - little did I know!! *rolls eyes* We had such a good laugh walking round. We spent a long time by the tiger and lions coz they are both partial to those particular animals. You'll see that from the photos lol.......We wanted to watch the feeding of the big cats too, but whilst we were round by the lions, the tigers were the ones that were being fed and we missed it!! Mind you I don't reccommend you making a point of watching the feeding times in Paignton Zoo........(ooo 1 of my top 5 songs - it's late!!), they just seem to dump the food in the animals pen and that's it. In other zoos I've been too they do a little talk too!! Anyway after they'd seen the tigers and lions for a long enough time we went and had some dinner. :) Trina and I didn't have much as she had planned to cook later. Wayne had a burger and chips. The woman behind us in the queue had a list as long as your arm for food thatshe had to get!!
After lunch we planned a route to follow and pretty much stuck to it. We saw Red Pandas which are just the cutest, camal, zebras, red hogs or something like that, little monkeys, lots of monkey type thingys (can't remember what they were and can't be bothered to get the guide map ;), wolf, cheetah, and of course the elephants :) It was strange coz as we walked into the elephant/giraffe house the woman in front said she could smell smoke. I thought she was having us on. We walked through to the elephants and I stood there for a while but then decided to walk back to the giraffe bit. As I walked through the door I could smell smoke it was eerie!! Poor things :(
Later Trina and Wayne battled to get the better pic of the cheetah as you'll see when I post the pics LOL........That was about it at the zoo!! Apart from the gift shop of course :) I brought the obligatory book mark (I try to get one from everywhere I go :) and a red panda cuddly toy which I've named Roger :) Now I have Brian the lion, Freddie the tiger, Roger the red panda, I'm considering calling my giraffe John :) lol...........
We went back to their house after a detour to Totnes. Wrong turning LOL.......At least I can say I've been to Totnes now LOL.......We watched Wallace and Gromit :) I brought it on DVD on Thursday to cheer myself up as I'd had a bit of a crap day!! Love that movie!! Trina and I went for a walk after that to get pencils (sweets not the proper thing!) (ooo stone cold crazy remix thingy Love this!!) Unfortunately they didn't have any pencils so we had to get jelly tots and tooty fruity's lol.......we're such kids at heart ;)
We got back just as Ice Dancing was starting. Go Gaynor :) I'm so pleased she won and I was well chuffed that it was between her and Stefan. I was welling up watching Torvill and Dean perform the bolero - I remember the first time they did it!! Once that finished it was of course, Casualty, and the final Ice Dancing bit. After that we couldn't watch a Queen DVD coz they were videoing Planet of the Apes and didn't really wanna watch Parky coz Tony Blair was on it!! Saw the ending to Just the two of us. Trina was convinced Russell and Sian had sung Barcelona but whenthey replayed it none of us could make it out until they actually sung the word. Very odd version!! Trina was not amused!!
Anyway after the football, we managed to watch some Queen, but not too much coz Trina kept falling asleep. Decided to head up the wooden hills to bedfordshire as we were gonna get up early the next day too :)
I think I shall finish this tale here for now and post some more tomorrow - until then...............
Take care peeps
P.s I'm behind in journal reading as I've been away but don't fear I'll catch up at some point LOL........
P.p.s Great king rat was born today - sorry just singing along to the track on Queen radio :)
Wednesday, 1 March 2006
Evenin' all - yep tis me again!!
I'm having one of those days where I thought I would have lots to tell you but now I'm here and typing the entry and I'm not sure what to say LOL.......You'll be glad to know I'm not listening to the Queen radio so I won't be going off on my tangents ;-)
Let's see what's happened since me last entry? Well it's the first of the month and therefore a change to the journal - colours and photo :-) I like change sometimes!
Short break as my doorbell was buzzed!! It was some chinese delivery - I didn't ask for a chinese, I've just eaten my tea LOL......Trina's ears have probably pricked up if chinese people deliever down this area!!
Talkin' of change I ordered some photos of my mates and they were delivered today so I've rearranged the pics in my big multi frame. It looks good now there's an up to date piccie of my bruv, the group pic from the tour and wedding pics of Trina and wayne :-)
I suppose I have been a little creative lately, yesterday I made 4 banners for use on the web. I was actually really pleased with them - I finally worked out how to use the paint brush in the programme I use lol only taken me about a year lol........I'm so pathetic it's unbelieveable!!
Work is manic with the accounts and only two of us there!! Sometimes it feels like there is just one of us. Team leader is always in meetings or up talking to her boss - still it goes to show I can cope on my own coz I just get on with it. It's a nice feelin' to know there's work on me desk when I go in though.
Not been doin' well on the ol' exercise front this week. I was determined all day I was gonna do a workout when I came home today but about 2 seconds before I walked in the door that changed!! Well I have my reasons LOL.........Tomorrow I've gotta do quite a bit to get ready for the weekend (woohoo) so no exercising tomorrow!! Unless I do my hoovering when I get home lol ;-)
What is up with the weather?? Yesterday it was sun, rain, hail, snow, sun, rain, hail, snow.........all day long!! Today it's been beautiful sunshine all day till about 5 minutes before we're all due to go home and it buckets it down with snow, rain, hail, whatever!!
Well I'm gonna sign off here as I wanna shut the computer down to watch the film in a bit!
Take care everyone.
Best wishes xx
