I know it’s the law for siblings to not get on, but sometimes my brother makes me so angry I think I may explode. I do get on to him a lot, but it’s because if I don’t he won’t do things to help us or help himself! My mum lets him off more than I do, but I suppose she has to live with him 24/7 so she gets tired of moaning at him. He’s got special needs so it’s...
It was my sister’s UK hen do tonight and I reeeally wanted to stay out with her but I couldn’t. It’s mu brothers birthday tomorrow and we have to leave like waaay early eurgh, so no drinking for me :( I’d feel guilty if I stayed out with her and didn’t go to legoland though, birthdays mean the world to my brother, much more than they do to others. We’re...
I just watched a beautifully powerful and...
called ‘Inside I’m dancing’. It’s about two disabled young men, both in wheelchairs and their journey of independence out in the real world. It’s an endearing and thought-provoking movie and I was gripped until the very end…which had me in tears. It was produced in 2004, but the fact that everything is a little out dated is irrelevant. I’m not sure...

I had such a strange dream
first I was at my house, but my estate was MASSIVE and I could see into everyone’s houses. and all the houses were the same as mine but different variations. then I was in Paris? and climbed out a window of some massive Cathedral and casually made my way down the building. then it turned in to some sort of school trip and I was on a boat….it was just odd. I always find I have the...
busy busy week...
But it’s over! And I’m a bit sad now :( Had a really successful week with my local paper, got on well with the staff and it’ll be strange not going in the office tomorrow morning! I just kind of got on with what I had to do and didn’t really need much help which seemed to pay off…I got really good feedback today and both editors sent me lovely emails thanking me. ...
I had to go to this art gallery which had a new exhibition to get an interview. it was really strange! The project was basically this guy who put a solar powered camera in a tree and left it there for a whole year. In total there were 18,000 pictures! The lady was really nice and said I could watch the short film, so I was led into this blacked out room where the pictures were projected on the...

First day of work experience
went quite well! I mean it’s not like I’m writing about celebrity scandals or breaking news…local news is dull. But I knew that already. The good thing is though, they’re not afraid of throwing you in to stuff and giving you stories to write…I could’ve been utterly awful for all they knew. Luckily I’m not. Got to write about 5 or 6 short news stories...
I start work experience tomorrow and I’ve realised that not being a ‘trouser person’ is a bit of a problem when trying to find a sensible outfit to wear…hmm.
going to see hangover II tonight. I...
tumblr's changed aaaaaah!

it’s a never ending task
eBay is fast becoming the bane of my life
…I know I raved about it but right now I am not loving it!
The plight of being a checkout girl
After many years working in a supermarket (not naming any names…the most expensive one to shop at!) I have come to find that every shopper can fit into my ‘customer categories’. Let me break it down for you: The cute old people. we don’t mind these, even if they do smell a bit stale, if they’re sweet enough we can overlook this. usually results in me wanting to...
