Four Childhood Books

1. Famous Five - I fancied Julian
2. Beatrix Potter - So many different stories, I loved Peter Rabbit though and I still have them all now
3. Sweet Valley High - I think I had every book in this series, I still have them all in the loft
4. The Babysitters Club - I wanted to be Stacey, and go out with Sam, and the film was ace too. It’s on Amazon on video and even though I don’t have a video anymore I want to buy it!


Four authors I’ll read again and again

1. Marian Keyes - I absolutely love her books, and only wish she had more out. I can’t wait for the new one, out in February this year.
2. Sophie Kinsella - The same as above really, I can really relate to her books!
3. Cecilia Ahern - One of my favourite books, Where Rainbows End. I have read it so many times!
4. Lisa Jewell - I have not read one of her books which I didn’t enjoy, she is a fantastic writer.


Four authors I’ll never read again

1. Dorothy Koomson - I didn’t enjoy My Best Friend’s Girl but I gave her next book a chance, Marshmallows for Breakfast, and I thought it was rubbish. I wont be picking up any more of her work.
2. Elizabeth Kostova - The Historian has got to be one of the most boring books I have ever come across.
3. Terry Pratchett - I have just never been able to get into any of his books
4. Am clutching at straws here as I can’t think of a lot of authors, but I read PJ Tracey’s Live Bait and absolutely hated it, which has put me off wanting to read more of her books.


Four books on my to read list

1. Persuading Annie, Melissa Nathan
2. 31 Dream Street, Lisa Jewell
3. The Dead of Summer, Camilla Way
4. A Dangerous Dress, Julia Holden


Four books I’d take on a desert island

1. Where Rainbows End, Cecilia Ahern
2. Vince and Joy, Lisa Jewell
3. Hubble Bubble, Christina Jones
4. The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger

I haven't tagged anyone in this or the last post as I was tagged so long ago on them!

This made me cry:

Father's Poem To His 'Little Boy Blue'


The father of murdered schoolboy Rhys Jones has written a moving tribute to his "little boy blue".
Read the poem in full here.
Now God wanted a football match
And to play it up in heaven
But first he needed players
And select his first eleven.


Georgie Best, big Brian Labone
The legend Dixie Dean
Alan Ball and Bobby Moore
All made it in the team.


He needed one more player
Someone who would be quick
From up above he looked down
And saw Rhys there in his kit.


So Rhys was taken up above
God took him by the hand
To play the game he loved so much
Where sponsorship is banned.


There is no cheating either as
God is the referee
There are no mega wages
And the transfers they are free.


The games are live on telly
You don't have to subscribe
The players all stay on their feet
Cos no one takes a dive.


So Rhys plays now so happily
To the angels in the crowd
And every time he hits the net
They roar his name so loud.


Have fun my little blue boy
You're safe and in God's care
Till it's time for me to get my boots
And join with you up there.

Birthday Shenanigans

Thanks for all your comments and emails wishing me a happy birthday! I had a really great weekend, beginning on Friday.

Like I mentioned (I think) I went for a breakfast in the morning with my boss and friend. I only picked that place to go as I couldn't stop talking about these delicious looking kippers that were available, its a poshest fish restaurant in the city centre, so we decided upon going there so I could get them. Guess what? They didn't have any! So I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs with toast and it was lovely. Nearly £10 though, so I was pleased when my boss whipped his card out to pay! I felt really nice too as I had dressed up and wore a dress for a change to work, the sun was out and we sat outside to eat.

We walked back to work and as I walked into reception they had decorated it all out...there was a chilled bottle of Bucks Fizz for me, my friend and the receptionist, presents galore on the tables and 21st banners all over the cupboards and walls....complete with photos of me at all ages, courtesy of my mother, including this one!! Every single person who wrote in my card/s added something about either A, being drunk, or B, falling over. I'm so predictable. Work bought me a silver bracelet (I fell up the stairs last week and broke my favourite one) and a 21st photo frame with that above photo in it. The receptionist bought me a pair of posh earrings and a bottle of cava, and my boss bought me a very expensive bottle of champers.

I got one of the lads to cover reception so that me and the other girls could go to lunch together, where we consumed 2 bottles of rose between two of us in an hour and a half and needless to say I was pissed out of my tree when I got back. My boss had kindly done work that needed doing that afternoon so I had to do it as best I could hah hah.

A few of us went to the pub after work, I didn't really talk to a lot of people so I didn't have to worry about the guys I don't like. So, after my slightly alcoholic breakfast drinks, bottle to myself at lunch and four bottles - two to myself - after work, I couldn't stand up. We went for a subway and practically turned into lesbians walking for a taxi hugging, linking arms, telling each other how much we loved each other and generally being pissed and happy.

Until the next morning, when I cant remember a hangover as bad!! Jesus. I felt sooooo ill. I was heaving down the toilet so when I felt slightly better I jumped into my mummy's bed and opened all my presents. My mum and dad gave me £500 to pay for my holiday in three weeks and to go towards spending money, although I'm gonna have to use it now as I'm £13 in my bank, £0 in my purse and payday is a week today (after the bank holiday, how frustrating). Also a h-u-g-e pink box filled with 21 pink related presents which are lovely and girly :-)

I had to go back to bed after that to try and sleep it off, which I managed, then pottered around picking clothes for that night., then headed into the centre to meet my two friends in the hotel we had booked into. I wasn't allowed into the hotel room as they had decorated it all, so we went for a quick larger in the bar and then into town to shop and get some tea. Afterwards, we went back into the room where I opened all my presents and cards from them two, whilst drinking pink champers. We just messed around, watched X Factor (mmmmm Simon Cowell porn) and finally got done up and ready to go out at midnight. We only went to two pubs, as the other girl was pissed out of her head and it was a bit cold, especially for me wearing teensy weensy hotpants and vest top.

The next day we went to another local pub for a breakfast, or in my case as I think cooked brekies are minging, a jacket potatoe. We stayed in there watching a bit of footie, then said goodbye to one of the girls and went to a sports pub to watch the Liverpool V Chelsea match - what a robbing for L'Pool!! Oh and on the subject of footie, how chuffed was I about the Leeds score on Saturday, 4-1!! Get in Beckford is such a God, I love him.

We went to another pub, had two pitchers of cocktails and then went for a Nando's, then it was home time for me.

All in all, a great weekend.

Princess Diana


...would have been 46 today. I've been watching the concert for her, organised by William and Harry (I soooo would, Harry is such a fittie, even for a ginge! He falls into that Bradley catagory!!) all afty, and I just think it's really sad, at the same time as looking like such a good day.
I only vaguley remember her dying, I remember my mum crying loads, but I was only 10 I think.
Aarggghh just had to stop writing this and come back to it cos P Diddy doing his thang had me in tears well bad!!
Anyway, there isn't really a point to this post I suppose, I just think it's really sad that she's gone, as she did do so much.
[I'm not a Royal family freak or anything, I don't usually post things like this but I do really like - or did - Diana and felt I should write something about her.]
WOOH - JASEY BABY IS ON NOW! Love him!! (Jason Donovan, obviously)
Don't know how to end this now, RIP?? I hate saying that though.

Kylie

Kylie's album, Enjoy Yourself, was the first album I ever had, when I was either 3 or 4, and all these years later (I know it sounds gay!) I have to say, it is still one of my faves. I love all the songs on there, just feel good songs, which remind me of just happier times when I was younger and there was nothing to worry about!

I don't particularly like her these days, as she's got older her music has got different, she actually annoys me a bit now. As I keep on saying, I am STILL trying to update my ipod, and put all my CD's on. It's taking so long cos I have loads myself and then there are loads in the cupboards downstairs, and on the computer, anyway, while working my way through the cupboard CD's today I discovered more Kylie albums - from back in the day!! I love it! I've had to make a playlist with my fave songs in so I can turn it up loud and sing to my hearts content!

The playlist faves consist of (in no order):

Turn It Into Love
I Should Be So Lucky
I'll Still Be Loving You
It's No Secret
Wouldn't Change A Thing
Never Too Late
I Miss You
Tear's On My Pillow (Is this from a film? What? Is it good?)
Got To Be Certain
Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi
Where In The World
Especially For You
What Kind Of Fool

Probably the same year the Enjoy Yourself album came out one of my Uncle's bought me a Kylie video for Christmas, and I still have it; and actually watch it.

So if it's Kylie for me, you all must have someone you have always liked, who you still listen to after all these years, who is it?

Oh, and I don't think I really need to say it, but I will: Jason Donovan? ABSOLUTE LEGEND.

Everyone knows he is going to enter a time machine, get his looks back from when he went out with the Kylester, and come and marry me.



BTW: If I get any comments dissing my hubby to be - I won't post them!!! X

You Said I Must Eat So Many Lemons Cos I Am So Bitter

...I said I'd rather be with your friends mate, cos they are much fitter

I am totally loving Kate Nash at the moment, I just love that above line from her song Foundations.

I love these lyrics too...they remind me of lots of things ♥

All I know is that you're so nice

You're the nicest thing I've seen

I wish that we could give it a go,

See if we could be something

I wish I was your favourite girl

I wish you thought I was the reason you are in the world

I wish I was your favourite smile,

I wish the way that I dressed was your favourite kind of style


I wish you couldn't figure me out

But you always wanna know what I was about

I wish you'd hold my hand when I was upset

I wish you'd never forget the look on my face when we first met


I wish you had a favourite beauty spot that you loved secretly

Cos it was on a hidden bit that nobody else could see

Basically, I wish that you loved me

I wish that you needed me

I wish that you knew when I said two sugars, actually I meant three

I wish that without me your heart would break

I wish that without me you'd be spending the rest of your nights awake

I wish that without me you couldn't eat

I wish I was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep



All i know is that you're the nicest thing I've ever seen

I wish that we could see if we could be something

The Notebook

I watched this film at the weekend.


Jesus Christ! I have never, in my life, cried so much at a film! I Loved it though. Well, to be specific, I loved Ryan Gosling. I loved the film too though. This has defo jumped up my list of face films to the top.
I know it sounds really sad, but when I watch films and stuff that are set years ago, I miss it. I don't mean I miss it, obviously, I didn't live in it, but I wish stuff was the same way now. I loved watching how Noah and Allie met, and started dating. I know it's just a film, but how different is it now? Where do we meet men now, and how come they are all dickheads?
I want a Noah!
