Saturday night

T'has been quite a rough weekend for moi. All week, I'd been feeling slightly off. A little dizzy here, a minor headache there. I just put it down as a cold or something. But you know what it's like when a man gets a cold....IT'S SERIOUS!
Saturday night, I felt so rough, I got into bed at 10pm. That's about 8 hours too early for me usually (lol!). I woke at 2:35am, dripping wet and red hot. My temperature was flashing at the 'OMG, you're burning up' mark and worst of all, I really needed to pee, so I stood up, but soon found myself back on my ass with dizzyness, so I woke Anthony and asked him to help me to the loo, to which he kindly obliged.
While I was stood there (taking a pee....sorry to be so graphic) I suddenly felt really faint. I panicked....'I need to finish my pee but I need to lay down..oh god!'  I tensed and stressed and urged and cursed. Finally, I'd finished, so I started running toward the bedroom door to lay down quickly. I couldn't even tell Ant why I was running, I just had to do it as fast as possible. I reached for the door and pushed the handle down............
Next thing I know, I'm laying on the floor, dripping with sweat with a pillow under my head. There's blood on my fingers and pillow and I have no idea who I am, where I am, or who the two people around me were. My memory came back quick and the first thing I did (from past experience) was check my teeth with my tongue. '1, 2, 3, 4.....Ok, they're fine at that side....what about the other?...1,2,3,4......'
I couldn't talk or open my eyes, but I could hear Ant and Mum chatting round me. I'd hit my head against the corner of the cabinet as I passed out and knocked myself out..lol! When I faint, I'm only usually out for about 10 seconds, but Mum and Ant say I was out for at least a minute this time. It's bizarre!
I stayed in hospital all of Saturday night while they did blood tests, urine tests, x rays, poking tests, rubbing tests, tickle tests.....everything..lol! They don't know what's up with me, although they found a higher than normal amount of white blood cells in me, but they dunno why. That's seems to be it with hospitals...'You're ill, we don't know why...cya'...lol!
It was quite dramatic and upsetting in there though. The Northern General Hospital is scary on a Saturday night! In the bed across from me, there was a guy who'd tried to commit suicide because he has a brain tumour. That was awful to hear. I wasn't being nosie, but it was hard not to hear the conversation as it was so close. In the bed next to him was another suicide victim who refused to tell the doctors what he'd had, and how many, and then in the end bed was an ex co-worker of mine from Tesco who was having drunken epileptic fits. I know the guy quite well but never knew he had those fits!
I feel much better now, although my head is really sore and cut from the fall and my throat is killing. Anyone else suffering from similar out there? I think there's a nasty bug goin round! Don't let it floor you!

Everyone's story...


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.

Christmas has come early!


Hellooo folks!

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,
I can't sleep at the moment. My body clock's out of synch again..grrr!!
Not many will be interested in this entry, but because it's me, and with recent news, I HAVE to do this..apologies..lol!!
Ok so the new Star Trek film began filming last Wednesday. I'm sooo excited!!! I have to wait until December 26th to see it here..:-( So far, I'm happy with the casting....here's a run down of the 'New' old crew...
The villian of the movie
The villains sidekick
Kirk's GORGEOUS dad
and look who's playing Spocks mum 'Amanda Grayson'!!
I can't believe Winona Ryder's in a Star Trek film....crazy! 
The only thing I'm not really happy about is the fact that the actual 'Enterprise' ship will look DIFFERENT to how it did in the 60's!! Ok, I understand they need to make it look more believable now and that the effects weren't that good back in the 60's, but it's like changing the look of the Thunderbirds ships, or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.....It must not be done!! Grrrrrrrr!!
Here's how the Enterprise looked in the 60's and in recent Star Trek series where it's been seen:
..and this is how it might look in the new film:
SHOCKED and horrified! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
Anyways, I'm gonna keep this brief. I no longer work at Tesco's. After everything that happened, we still couldn't agree on what hours I'd be working, so I quit. I'm ok though, 'cos my new job is going great and I'm feeling much more confident!! YAY-ness!!!
Also, and I'm gonna be VERY hush hush about this, but I was on webcam last night, with two people from a very famous (in the UK) and currently successful girl group, and no, it's not the Spice Girls, but that's all I'm saying. Just had to say it 'cos it was such a huge deal to me! They've even invited me to London...*jaw drops* 
Life is fantabulous right now, and I can't wait for Xmas!!!
A recent pic:
The girl in this costume looked mortified when I jumped on her and asked if me and Nat could have a picture, but kindly obliged!
Before I go, I'd just like to pay my respects to Donna and family. I'm very very sorry for your loss. R.I.P Pat. It's nice to know that you're pain free. xxxxxx
Donna, love ya babes!

Random updateyness stuff!

Hey all!!
Euuggh, I've had such a lazy day today. I've literally just sat here at my pc listening to music and watching youtube videos. I'm not complaining mind you. I'm working later so I have to get ready soon.
Sorry for not updating sooner. The trip to Alton Towers was excellent. I got to know the teens better and we all had a great time. It was cold all day though, and I didn't go on any of the rides, purely for the fact that I didn't want it to look like I went with them just to have fun. I went to observe, make sure everyone was ok and to patrol round the park to make sure everyone was behaving. This didn't go to plan though as I must've only bumped into the group again once or twice during the whole day! It's a huge park yes, but we were there for 9 hours!
Been having trouble with Tesco again. I should've been at the youth centre on Friday, so I called Tesco on the previous Monday to explain the situation and to swap shifts. I was assured that it would be dealt with and someone would call me back. I waited all day and nobody called, so I spent the following 3 days trying to get hold of ANYONE who gave a damn. I finally got through on Thursday just for my team leader to say 'You haven't given us enough notice'. I was like 'No way..I called you on Monday!', to which he told me that he hadn't received any message from anyone regarding that. So I called the guy who gave him the message and he assured me that he'd personally told my team leader to call me back, so obviously, my team leader's lying as the guy who originally took my message says he'll come with me to face my team leader to ask him about it. So I ended up having to work at Tesco on Friday, but I've reported my team leader and I've gone over his head to the big boss and sorted my hours out permanently. One of the staff went barmy about it and said it 'Wasn't fair' to go over the team leaders head like I did, to which I replied 'I gave him a chance to sort it last week and he didn't. If he'd done his job, I wouldn't have had to see anyone else!'. Case closed in my opinion.
All in all, things are going great and I'm really excited about things now. This new job means the world to me and I can't wait to start studying! I got promoted last week, so in December, I'll be doing 4 shifts a week at the youth centre (which is the maximum amount of shifts I can do in one week there by law), so I'm dead chuffed!
A few recent pics:
Dunno what was happening here but Phil wants me to shut up..lol!
Random pirate guy..lol!
Another random guy. I have no idea who he is!!

Also, me and my friend have made our own channel on Youtube, designed to keep in touch with friends. There's a scene in this where I say a few hello's to people, but at the time, I really didn't think it'd end up online so I didn't say hi to everyone that I should've, so ignore that part and I'll get ya all later! lol!
..and our Myspace account is: myspace.com/natalieandste
We only uploaded our first video yesterday though, so don't expect anything great..;-)
Hope you're all ok out there in the world!
I just wanna say hi to Donna and family as they're going through an awful time at the moment. My prayers go out to all of you hun. Thinking about you. Love ya!
