New Music

A Catch-Up In Pictures

I’ve been meaning to blog for a while, but for some reason, keep putting it off. So here is a little recap of the past two weeks for you while I try to remember about the Race for Life and write it down. Blogger fail.


The queues for the museum on the first day of the Banksy exhibit. Two weekends later, the queues seem to be worse!


They’re not so good at being a top secret rogue agency if they have a banner on a shop off Whiteladies Road.


Topshop does it again with corsages that were bigger than my face.
I kinda want one.


The wife took me on a date to celebrate doing the Race for Life and bought me an ice cream mountain. I could only manage half.


My headaches have been getting so bad, I am taking a pack of these every day.
Of course, the doctor has been a real help. Can you sense the sarcasm there?


Randomly found these chemistry books by the train station last week. An excited student trying to get rid of them?


Pints of tea are the only way to survive train journeys.


Although VitaminWater also helps. I like this one the best. Mostly because it sends me a little hyper and tastes a bit like Um Bongo. I miss Um Bongo.


Who doesn’t love strawberries dipped in chocolate (and then eaten with raspberry sorbet)?

About Me, by Hayley aged 16 years and 6 months

I’ve been sorting through the last few boxes full of folders, and trying to find my bloody degree certificate as one agency wants to see a copy of it to make sure I wasn’t just dossing about for four years. (Erm, I was at uni. Of course I was dossing about!)
Everyone around my age had these horrible folders called National Records of Achievement which were burgundy vinyl with gold trims and writing on (in an attempt to look classy) I found my Record of Achievement, and thought I would have a read of it to see what I was like when I was 16.
Wow. The first part (the achievements bit) reads like a 13 year old wrote it. I am actually ashamed I wrote it.
Because I found it funny, and I thought that I probably wasn’t the only one to have written something similar to this under duress from their form tutors (honestly, I would have had no idea what to have written on there if I had been left to it)
These were both written in March/April 2000, so just over 8 years ago. I hope I have changed my writing style slightly since then!
