Golf and Holidays

So I'm in the full swing of holiday preparations WHILST sorting out uni stuff AS WELL AS trying to do some shifts at work AND watching the British Open.


So that means there hasn't been much time to update my blog. Things should get more interesting in August, I promise! Right now I'm just keeping busy enough so I don't have enough time to stress about my results. Eeek!

I had my first IMAX cinema screen experience on Wednesday when me and Toni went to watch Superman. I've gotta say, it was pretty cool, especially the sheer SIZE of the screen. When the guy said it was eight storeys high I was like "Pfft!" But he was not exaggerating. Imagine Kevin Spacey's head on a screen bigger than your house. Scary, huh?
I did enjoy it, I mean the image of a place wing coming RIGHT AT YOU is cool and all, but I couldn't help but find it a little intrusive, bordering on voyeuristic. Maybe that's just me though.

If you can believe it (and those who know me well probably won't) I have a new mobile phone! Shocking. And I'm currently also suffering on the atkins diet.

And Saturday was one of the worst days of my life for several reasons:

a) England were knocked out of the World Cup by bastard Portugal
b) I met the most annoying person I've ever had the misfortune to meet
c) I saw David in Standish
d) I had an argument with my Dad and became subsequently despairingly depressed

So I was chilling out yesterday since I've now officially left college and therefore am required to do NOTHING and I decided to finally let my birthday balloon go.

It floated over the top of the house and round to the front so I ran to the front door to watch it go. With one hand holding the door I looked up at the sky. The sun was bright so I lifted my hand from the door to shield my eyes and BANG the door shut behind me.
I was locked out the house with wet hair, wearing shorts and t-shirt and no shoes with only a digital camera. Rob had gone out for God knows how long so I was forced to go next door and seek help.

Thankfully our next door neighbour is very kind and was happy to help me. He had to pretty much demolish his fence so we could lift it up and I could slide through a narrow gap (good job I'm on a diet!) into my back garden.

How humiliating.

Top 10 foods I am craving right now:

1. Jam on toast
2. A Greenhaulghs steak and ale pie
3. Cheesecake
4. Jammy Dodgers
5. Crisp sandwiches
6. Apple pie and ice-cream
7. Hot Dogs
8. Lasagne
9. Garlic Bread
10. Rolo yoghurts

That list was not very comforting.
