For the last month of so I have been telling the kids at Church that I am moving house (which is true) I havent mention Uni since they wont understand. Today I was teaching Eleanor and Jade. Eleanor realised I was moving and was like 'No you cant go!' and was making a big fuss that I cant move away for 4 years, obvioulsy ignornig the fact that i will be back in the hols. It was Fred's 100th Bday tomora so we had a mini party in Church for him. so active for 100! i got to chat to Janice and Win from work. Also paid for teh Church outting... whats the beating that Yvette will pull out at the last minute?!

Saw Charlie and the Choc Factory last night! Was soo amaing. Tim burton is amazing director and i didnt realise how wel Johnny Depp could act! Slightly annoying that the oompa loompas were the same actor just digitaly imposed and their songs were different .. yet cool!! The nice thing bout driving with Tris is that he will talk through driving stuff and you know you can ask him questions and he wont mind!

I've had a strange couple of days.

Things have come to light.

Peoples kindness, love, courage, betrayal, selfishness and ignorance.

Ive decided to let Christ influnence my life in more ways now. I have written out the Quotes that mean the most, help the most, or teach the most so that I can have instant acsess or memories them for when I need them again. Plus then I can roll more quotes off.

Mrs B funeral today. Seemed very impersonal to me, but thats the way she wanted her funeral. Not really a lot to tell.

Work today me and Gemma got told of for going up to the staff room at 11:45. Fair enough but hey look how many fag breaks the management take. I cleaned the staff room today and I gave it a good going over, hoovering the floor which needed it. Sandra home manager came in twice for a fag, as did Sue, they then had a meeting while I was still cleanign tehn when I went out they closed hte door, I was like yes I have finished!

Its nearly August and WE HAVE THE CENTRAL HEATING ON! WHAT IS UP WITH THIS WEATHER??!!

I bumped into Curly and Lorely in town today. Was nice cause I was gunna pop in and see them at some point anyway. We took Lorely to the park, bless her she is 16months and totally gorgeous! We talked bout Uni, life, friends and everything in general. We then went to the new cafe in town which is lovely!! so cute watching Curly being all motherly, suits her so much, well it always has really! Finally worked out how old she is! Wasnt as old as I thought. She looks late 20's but I always thought she was late 30s but she is only 32/33 which was a nice suprise!

Got another email from Tony. He missed the Tears For Fears concert in Vegas. So at least I know its not only me that misses great concerts!

Got to work today and had a quick chat with Margaret, just checking that I was ok with the hours I am working. I crashed yesterday and I nearly did at work today, just wasnt in the mood. Stupid weather!

Church this morning I had Sam and Jade, trying to teach them about Joseph and getting them to interact was like getting blood out of a stone! Also went back into Church to see Mary and Win. The guy that was preaching did his children address about soem dead language, most boring! Janice gave me and Yvette the details of the Church trip to Southend, might go to that, sounds quite fun! ]

One thing that is buggin me is Yvette and her phone. Why is it everytime she is wtih me she is always on her phone texting someone else, as soon as the film ended on fri, she had her phone out, as soon as we had finished teaching, there she was with her phone. I mean I dont mind it if she said she was going to do it. But quite frankly when she is wtih other people is she texting me?? No! she only texts me to tell me something! URGH! Just rubs me up the wrong way.

Stupid Hormones!

Now we have a tattoo person in town I am thinking bout a tattoo, when I was younger I use to want an eagle on my shoulder blade but after thinking about it these things came into thought .. I cant really have it on my arm cause teachers arent really suppose to have them. I dont want it somewehre visible as it will show when I wear certain things i.e. white wedding dress!

My current line of thinking is to have a small cross put on the right side of my lower back. However it will hurt, it will cost, it is permanent and my back is fatty so I have no idea what will happen if I gain or lose weight. Or it will be visible.

Anyone got any thoughts, views etc?

Why cant they leave us alone? What is it about Warren Street that these so call humans like? Me and Yvette were walking through town when we walked passed Powerhouse with all there tvs on showing London. One was on Sky News, so after a fashion we compared the quality of the tvs and news channels. Must remeber to phone Uncle Steve tonight and see if Jan is ok considering she works down the street from the station.

Got a letter from Dean this morning, 3 pages about the Queen concert. Also got another email from Tony this afternoon thanking me for my encouragment... he called me Jennifer :S.

How fantastic was last night?!!! The Regal is such a nice place to sit, relax and chat. After 2 bottles of Budwiser (though its American, yet so nice!). I had a sip of a shot but It really burnt my throat so screw that! Had a nice chat with Tristan and Michelle, spreading over a wide amount of topics! Then onto the Junction, was a quite small and I didnt think much of the bar but the music was amazing (apart from the DJ cutting songs up and missing guitar solos!). There was a nice section of 90S music, so the stuff we will asociate with our school time. Also had one trance song at the end which was really great! There was a rather nice looking steward as well, shame he was on duty, wouldnt have minded dancing with him ;) Have to say I didnt sleep much last night, the beat was still ringing in my ear in the morn (opps!) and I just couldnt get comfortable. so I was shattered at work.

Today at work I had to tell Win and Kath that Mrs B had died, mum worked out she had Breast Cancer for 7ish years. She apparently just went to sleep with her daugher Jennifer by her bed and never woke up, which is the way she wanted it.

Came home and I cooked bread again, then cleaned and ironed for mum. Then since I told her J20's are on offer in Somerfield (4 bottles for £1.89, which considering one bottle costs about £1.50 is a great offer) Mum Got me Orange and Passionfruit so Im gunna give that flava a go. Tried Apple and mango last night at the junction (£2.30 there!)

I can home to find Mum in the study looking upset... Mrs B died this morning. I felt strangely detached, I just had to show nothing to support mum.

Work was quite fun this morning, Me and Gemma talked bout Musicals. Bumped into Sue Walters from Church so I had a nice chat. Had a rathter nasty encounter with Kirsty, one of the housekeepers who told me and Gemma we couldnt go on our break causing havoc with the carers and unit order. We went up after talking to the care worker and it turns out Kirsty went for her break 15mins early!

Last night was the concert. Have to say Dan was looking rather lovely in his black shirt! Was a good concert, rather annoyingly mum spent the whoole first half putting drinks out and then the performers came out and drank them all... so we ran out for the audience, slightly annoying and cause they crowd round I couldnt get through to refil empty trays etc.

Yer I have no idea what tonight, tomorrow will be like, or when the news of Mrs B will hit me. I have to tell Win and Kath tomorrow which is gunna be hard. Was suppose to have the morn off tomora but Bruce is coming round at 8 to do the shower so I have to be up and ready at 7:50 - so much for my lie in!

Yesterday was the family BBQ at Steve and Jan's. We got there and I recongnised only Michelle and Jason, Michelle looks fat instead of pregnant, she showed mum the scan while I looked over her shoulder. Jason kids from his first marriage was there.... One of them decided to throw a ball at the table me, Ellie and Graham were sitting at knocking my wine all down me and all over the table. Then she refused to get a cloth to clear it up and then said it wasnt her, and of course Jason nor Michelle did nothing about it! They had no dress sense and were ever so demanding, didnt seem right to me! The only people I knew there was Steve and Jan and Ellie's family. It wasnt as good as most years since I hardly knew anyone there and it was so hot and I was wet. Just wasnt in hte mood.

I get into work this mornig and Sue said she missd me cause Hannah had to clean the whole place and they didnt have any laundry cause I wasnt in, which I felt bad about cause Hannah is so lovely! Hmm cant do antyhting bout it now!

School Concert tonight, shelleys party tomora night, Cinema at some point.. hmm do I have the money?

I saw Mrs B today, she is dying of Cancer. She has had Breast Cancer since I can remeber and has fought it for so long. She is supposidly going into a hospital but I dont think she will make it. When I first saw her I was shocked but then after talking with her she is completly with it, her body is dying yet her mind is as strong as ever.

I'm listening to a Queen and Paul Roger Concert. Im kinda a bit annoyed I missed it yet after listening to him do BoRhap Im like... oh no! Terrible! Mum was like yer Tony could do better!

I spent this afternoon reading my book, its getting really good now. I sat on my bed reading while listening to RENT then I cleaned my room. I am actually using my afternoons now. I baked yesterday which was really fun and I read today. I had a funny day at work nothing really amazing happened. I am so looking foward to my day off on Sunday, although I am at Church in the morn so its not like I can have a lie in.

I want to spent money but I can't. Cinema, Shelleys Party, generally money to get my by. Hmm.

I wrote this really cool letter last night night. It was kinda directed at God, it was kinda like modern day prayer, you just write what you are feeling, direct your thoughts and see where it takes you. I did 2 pages leading to that I know realise that my relationship with him IS 2 ways, that I lack self trust and trust in Him. Really cool! Also planning on coming to see Curly, just to see her and catch up with her before going on plus I just wanna get some good advice on moving and how Christ can make it a smooth journey, no doubt it will include a large amount of time in prayer, as adviced by Tony!

Dad opened a bottle of red wine, It was wine so I wasnt gunna say no. It smelt like bread, now it has no taste until I just drank some and it tasted of wood.... and people like red wine? Give me white anyday!

I spent the afternooon cooking! I have made 6 white rolls and chococlate kisses. So nice to have the kitchen to myself to cook and its just being so fun, and suprisingly not that hot!!

Went into the new Somerfield... posh!!

I need a laptop bag, and there is one on play.com for £10 altough Im not sure the sizing is right so I might not buy it, plus if I buy it I can then buy the DVD I want as well.. which isnt good!

Don't think there is much to tell about..

I came home from Work with the clear blue skys and I wanted to be by the River, sitting on Jubilee Gardens just watching London or in Hyde Park... but alas I cant spent money this month which is annoynig since I found another Christopher Eccleston DVD about him being Christ in the second coming, and it is something to do with the production people of Dr Who. I also have Shelleys party, and I want to go the cinema twice. Hmm!

Work has been hetic but fun, I love the people I work with! I get on with Jan really well and all the cleaning staff and management, Its nice to know that its one big team not sectioned like at St.G's.

My plan for tonight is to go to bed at 8, watched the Dr, and then watch Bad Girls while eating the pic n mix I bought at lunchtime... cause Its gunna be good. Fenner is gunna get his! HA! Finally, the most hated character ever! whooo

In Christ Alone - Stuart Townsend

In Christ ALone My Hope Is Found
He Is My Light, My Strength, My Song
Thus Cornerstone This Solid Ground
Firm Through The Fiercest Drought And Storm
What Heights Of love What Depths Of Peace
When Fears Are Stilled When Strivings Cease
My Comforter My All In All
Here In The Love Of Christ I Stand

In Christ Alone - Who Took On Flesh
Fulness Of God In Helpless Babe
This Gift Of Love And Rightenous
Scorned By The Ones He Came To Save
Till On That Cross As Jesus Died
The Wrath Of God Was Satisfied
For Every Sin On Him Was laid
Here In The Death of Christ I Live

There In The Ground His Body Lay
Light Of The World By Darkness Slain
Then Bursting Forth In Glorious Day
Up From The Grave He Rose Again
And As He Stands In Victory
Sin's Curse Has lost Its Grip On Me
For I Am Him And He Is Mine
Bought With The precious Blood Of Christ

No Guilt In Life No Fear In Death
This Is The Power Of Christ In Me
From Life's First Cry To Final Breath
Jesus Commands My Destiny
No Power Of Hell No Scheme Of Man
Can Ever Pluck Me From His Hand
Til He Returns Or Calls Me Home
Here In The Power Of Christ I'll Stand

On this horrific and sadening day I feel quite loved since I have had Tristan phone me, Louisa text me and Samm on msn checking that I hadnt gone to London and was ok. Which is soo lovely, feel so blessed and the fact that people do care bout me no matter what I think which is nice consideirng I have been in a state of horror since I saw the news at work.

We are still waiting to hear if Auntie Jan got home ok, she was at work in Warren Street, a street away from the bus bomb but as far as we know she is ok just stuck at work. I looked at the coverage and saw the streets I walk down, the streets I feel so safe on and think Who would do this??!!

I Blame the Yanks and Bush! We are being attacked because Blair has his head so far up Bush's arse they have become the same person therefore causing us all to suffer.

I cant really enlighten on it anymore, all I can say is that I pray for the safety of all those people, and Well Done to all the people involved who have dealt with the situtation amazingly. God Bless our Country!!

Ok so for the past couple of days Yvette has been telling me off for being broody, yet today I bumped into Louisa and her 18month old Niece Syndie, she was soo cute and sweet bless her. We walked her hand in hand down the high street then lifting her up and swining her and then she kept putting her toy on our heads!

Today I cleaned at work. Went into town then had to wait till 1 for Yvette to go on her lunch break so she could get copies of the photos, yer so I had to pay for them, I thought she would have at least contributed but no. Anywhoo I also bought 28 days later on video, since it was on sale and I know Tris said it wasnt good so I thought if I buy it on VHS then it wont matter if I like it or not since it was only £4. Good film tad gorey, I mean proectile bloood vomiting and pushing someones eyeballs in. plus Christoher Eccelston with blonde/yellow hair. hmm!!

After finind my laptop I was rather hoping that DAd might get it tongiht but no! Oh also saw Rosie in town which was nice and then Shelley turned up at 2ish, which I knew she was but I completley forgot so we had a little chat which was great.

Yer went to the bank today and didnt like what I saw, stupid Play.Com!! hmm must stop spending!

Hmm where to start...

Today was work, then went to Stevenage with Yvette, went into Currys to look at laptops, was approached by 'Jamie' a rather tall muscly (married, shame!!) guy who talked me through all the laptops and I finally choose the one I want hopefully Dad will take me back this week to get it :D We then round Stevenage to window shop and just muck round, went into the arcade.

Sat I watched Live8, was alright. Can't remenber that much bout it to be honest!!

Friday night was the parrty. Was great, we got some great photos done .. already printed and in frames by my bed, and the first things I am packing to take to Uni :D It was lovely to spend time with everyone wtihout mentioning school and exams and just to relax. Thanks Jenni for hosting it :D

Yer so Mum nicked my nice smart sandals and put them on and she now thinks she is wearing them to the yr 11 prom.. however as soon as she did this I started complaining that I was gunna wear to the party on friday cause they went nicely with my outfit (forgetting that I have to walk to Jennis in them, and then dancing and most likely running round like a mad thing!) bascailly ending up with me and mum have a slightly fun argument and fight over the damn shoes and at the moment I have a headache, my sleeping pattern is all over the place and I was hormonal so yer I dont know what to do now, and who gets the shoes!

Kate phoned me tonight, was a nice convo bout exams, life and the job, Im not going back although she wants to keep in touch with me which is nice.

I had to walk down to the post office to get a packet, so I went the long way round, down butcher bulk, then to Kings James way, up the Fire Station, through to Green Drift and down, was nice bit of exercise, tad warm though. Got my packet, a pressie from my Aunt and Uncle, nice little blue watch and this reallty pretty card of St, Pauls but its set in silver.

On Sat I want Dad to come to PcWorld with me so I can get my laptop. although I think him and mum are watcihg Live 8... fun!!

I just need to get myself back to me! I need to get rid of this numbness..... uncomfortable numb!
