Good morning J~Landians! How ya doin?
I'm just about to start day 3 of my last minute Christmas shopping. It's been a hectic couple of days since I got paid. I haven't stopped!
Only problem is, work have screwed up my wages, so I didn't get paid as much as I thought. My boss has had to sub me £200, which I'm grateful for but it's rubbish considering that it's Christmas and I've only just made a start on present buying. Grrr! It's screwed up a lot of my plans and I can't get half of what I intended, so I'm just having to prioritise! I don't get paid again until the end of January either, so it's gonna be a really tight month now.
Things have been good lately. This job has been so good for me, and I'm so thankful that I have it (despite them not paying me..lol!).
I'm feeling really festive now as Xmas draws closer. It's Christmas Eve-Eve..woo hoo!!
I'm not back at work until the 8th so I'm enjoying the time out, even though I'm easily getting bored...:-( My return to work will be interesting as 40 of the teenagers found out that I was gay last Wednesday. Well they didn't find out, they just kinda guessed after one of them saw me walking with Ant down town the other day. I've been dreading them guessing because it creates all kinds of awkward situations. They were questioning me about everything, but I just had to keep avoiding the subject, which can be difficult when they're all asking you at once. 'Are you gay? It's ok if you are, I have gay friends..come on, are you gay...JUST TELL US!!!', to which I reply 'Would it matter if I were? I have gay friends. Is this an issue? What are you getting for Christmas? I give that kinda response..lol!
I was sat at my desk in my bedroom earlier this week, when I suddenly heard strange noises at my feet. It was like a rustly, crinkly kinda noise. I ignored it at first but the noise got louder and I had to check it out. Imagine my surprise when I looked behind my desk to find the smallest MOUSE I've ever seen! We've NEVER had mice before, and I can't figure out why we have them now, although thinking about it, I would've expected them sooner as we live out next to large fields and the countryside.
I don't believe in mouse traps, so me and Mum spent ages trying to catch it. I was fooled by his size, because he's a clever little swine! After 2 hours of trying to catch it in a large shoe box, he suddenly vanished! I have no idea where he went because we followed him into a corner and could see him all of the time. I took my eyes off him for a SPLIT second, and when I looked back, he'd gone. I heard him tapping on my floor boards behind me 2 seconds afterwards, but god knows where it was coming from. He really did one over on me! Two nights ago, I came home absolutely exhausted from a days shopping. I took my clothes off, sat on my bed and just stared into space. I was sooo tired. Just I was going to lay down, the mouse (who I call 'Kevin' after the Home Alone character) popped out from under a set of my drawers and just froze and looked up at me. I looked at him and for a split second and thought about trying to catch him, but I was so tired. Instead, I said 'Kevin, you can do what you want tonight. I don't care, just don't invade my personal space!'...lol! With that, he toddled off under the drawers again. I can't help but laugh..lol!
In my room, I have my karaoke system sat on one of my huge P.A speakers up against my wall. Together, it's really heavy. Lately, it's mostly been used as somewhere to put things on top of, usually paper and a Christmas present from one of the teens at work. I came home yesterday to find that it had moved and the Christmas present was on the floor! It was a good 30 inches away from it's usual position and kinda horizontal. It looks like someone's grabbed the left corner of it and pulled it out. I shouted Mum to ask if she'd moved it for any reason, and she assured me that she hadn't, so I placed it back in it's usual position and thought little more about it. NOW I've woke up this morning and gone about my business for a couple of hours, but then I noticed that it's moved AGAIN, in the EXACT same way, although the papers and present were still on top of it. I'm not saying that I need to call a priest, but I just can't figure this out. It's too large and heavy for a cat (OR MOUSE..hee hee!) to move, and it's never moved before with any kind of vibrations or anything. I'm just stumped! I'll keep you posted.
Well I've been at it again and recorded another song. I love this song but everyone seems to have done a different version of it, so I tried to just do it my way, but I think it went in the direction of the original singer. Hope ya like it.

This is a story about four people named everybody,somebody,anybody and nobody.
There was an important job to be done and everybody was asked to do it.
everybody was sure that somebody would do it, anybody could have done it, but nobody did it.
somebody got angry about this because it was everybody's job.everybody thought anybody could do it, but nobody realized that everybody would not do it.
It ended up that everybody blamed somebody, when actually nobody accused anybody.
Apologies for my last entry. I should've calmed down waaay before I wrote anything, although I meant everything I said, I have to remember to keep it cool here. I'm gonna delete the entry cos I don't wanna have to keep seeing that entry and that picture, but thanks for your supportive comments. *hugs*. About the entry, I just have to correct something. With what I said, I implyed that Adam had taken the picture and sent it directly to me, but I found out that Adrian actually took the pic, not knowing there was anything wrong with it, so he sent it me a joke. He thought it looked like a crashed alien or something, so I just thought I'd say, Adam didn't send it me. There, all done!
Well, with all the happenings lately, I decided to pick myself up and start celebrating christmas early this year. I'm already listening to Xmas tunes and I love it. For anyone who has it, I've also trimmed up my myspace page, so pop over if you have time and if you can stand listening to Christmas classics (Darlene Love, I LOVE YOU!!)
On Friday night (before the incident) we took the special needs group shopping to Meadowhall and had such a great time. I intended to write about this that day, but obviously, other things got in the way. We all had our own groups to look after, so I made sure that my group had fun. One of my youths managed to shake hands with 'Pudsey the bear' (from Children in need) and he was over the moon. It was lovely to see. One of the other lads wouldn't walk anywhere unless he had his arm draped over mine, which I thought was amazing cos this guy's really quiet and stand off-ish! I was seriously choked up the whole time. We all went for a meal in the 'Oasis' section of Meadowhall and were treat to a few stage shows. One was an 11 year old girl who had a fantastic voice and the confidence of a wrestler, and the other act was 'Future Proof', a boyband who recently got booted from 'The X factor'. Considering they're all really cute, I enjoyed that part A LOT!!
T'was a great day and I can't wait for more to come.
I'm gonna go and get ready 'cos I'm going up to Hannah's house later on, so I'll catch ya all later and hope you're all well!
Thanks to Donna for this lovely pic!! xxx
Hey all! It's been a while! How ya all doin?
Just thought I'd add a new video that I recorded earlier. I look really depressed on it, but that couldn't be further from the truth. I have BIG news...I'll fill you all in a bit later on 'cos I'm running late for the chance of a lifetime, so I'll be back later! Much love! xxx
