I haven't even looked at this thing for over 3 months now, so i hope your lives are as thrilling as ever. I think a lot changed for me during the summer, perhaps i no longer feeel the need to share my existence with people on the internet because if i'm not in contact with you anyway then you're probably not that interested in me anyway and to some extent it's puzzling why you should be if you either don't know me or don't make the effort to contact me in the real world. (yes it exists... it's fucking big and scary out there when you stop thinking of your computer as a gateway to the world) Anyhow, I can't imagine i shall be using this little tool any more. If I'm not in contact with you there 's probably a reason for this. If you feel this is an unfair statement then call me. Text me or email me if you can't be bothered calling. Whatever. I think my life is a bit richer than this now. Maybe I've grown up.
I'm getting paid as an artist now, I'm gonna move to Paris next year and to be honest I'm pretty happy right now. I have friends i trust and respect and don't need emotional teenage bullshit in my life anymore from me or anyone else. So farewell... until another day.

So, I've been in Lancaster for a month working on an outdoor theatre event in a beautiful park up there. First night was friday and it was fantastic and the weather was great which was a relief as it had pissed it down with rain for the dress run 2 days beforehand. Any how i liked lancaster and the surrounding areas which i explored while is was there.
I haven't watched TV for a month but have been to the cinema 16 times... I doubt i will watch any TV for the next month either, my life does not feel like the absence of TV has affected it in any significant way. This is a good thing i think.
I'm flying to Oslo first thing on tuesday morning - i'm pretty much packed now and i'm so excited. I'll be away for a month and i'll try and email people as much as i can so you will know how much fun i'm having! If i don't have your email address (or you're not sure if i have it) and you feel that you would like to know about my little voyage around scandinavia then find some method to contact me and tell me it.
I will take millions of photos (ok probably more like 1 or 2 thousand) whilst i am away and shall show anyone who cares to see after wards!

I had a really great night out yesterday, one of the best i've had in a very long time. I went out with Lucy from my course at uni who is really lovely and always a fun person to go out with, and her sister. We went to a gig at the Carling academy. Patrick Wolf was fantastic, he had a really beautiful voice and was very cute. His music was hauntingly beautiful and i'm really glad we went to see him play. After that we went to Lagos where we danced lots and i met a very lovely man called fionn, who was a fabulous dancer... and we had a lot of fun.
I think it reminded me how nights out are so much about who you go out with rather than anything else, and despite feeling slightly rough today i think it's a night i'm gonna remember for a long time.

I have been taking advantage of the good weather by wearing sumer skirts and being outside. Except on tuesday when i worked at chester racecouse instaed and envied all the people in summer skirts who were outside, whilst i boiled in a black shirt and trousers and served them food. Indoors.
To make up for this i went out wandering along the docks yesterday, and actually thought i saw a hint of a tan on my pale pale skin by the end of the day.
Today i drove to west kirby (northern seasidey place) and walked for miles and miles along the sand and took a lot of photos.
I really enjoy walking on my own (this bodes well for my month alone in norway and sweden where i will be doing a huge amount of walking and travelling in beautiful surroundings) i think it's the only time when i truly clear my head and know that i will not be interrupted and i can just let my mind wander as much as my feet. I think it helps to get out of the city as well, it's nice to have no noise except the wind and the sea. There aren't many times in my life when it is truly quiet and i can appreciate it

I am cooking for Alex tonight. I really hope i don't mess it up, he's so critical of my cooking.

My week has involved a vast amount of driving - about 800 miles round trip from liverpool to carmarthen to london and back to liverpool, which has been quite exhausting! I went to see jock to begin with in not so sunny wales. We went to the botanical gardens of wales in the rain, it was pretty there but wet, went out for a nice meal in an italian restaurant and went to see sin city, which i thought was a bit disappointing really and not as clever as i thought it would be. Far too violent as well. Nevermind. Then i went back to london and went out to stay beautiful which was possibly the hottest club in london literally. I was sweating so much that it actually quite spoilt my evening and made me very tired. I was already tired because i had driven all day long and the extreme heat did not help. It was worth it though just to see fabulous kat looking very beautiful, and her lovely friends! And i went for cocktails with my lil bro before hand which was fun, and i was surprised b how well we get on these days - he's really grown up recently. Next day was shopping in Croydon followed by meeting ruth for a very quick drink and catch up which was all too brief, but i am determined to keep in contact with her as she is great! Then i went on to the opera (cosi fan tutte), which was fantastic, one of the best i've seen for a long time. And today i came back up to liverpool, so it has been a whirlwind few days! I think i will sleep a lot tomorrow!

Rah! I got given an even bigger bag of olives last night. This is excellent and Alex is truly a star for bringing me delicious olives so i can munch on them all day long.
I got lovely new summer shoes today and sat in the park all day again so they felt like they were being duly appreciated for their summery loveliness.
New shoes and olives - i am a happy girlie.

Alex brought me a big bag of green olives stuffed with almonds home from his new job yesterday night because he knows i love olives. They were yummy. He is a very nice man.
Today i have sat about in the park in the sunshine and enjoyed the beginnings of summer.
On Wednesday i'm seeing jock and friday i'm going out to stay beautiful with kat.
Life is pretty good right now.

I used to go to school with one of the girls on big brother this year. I swear i wasn't gonna watch it this time round, but i have a sneaking suspicion i will now. I seem to remember she wasn't very nice. I think she got suspended for stealing a mobile phone.

Finally i have given into the evil that is msn. Mainly because my brother refuses to keep in contact with me via any other medium - so go ahead and add me to your lists or whatever. firstname.lastname@example.org I do this grudgingly and due to pressure from several people who are simpy rubbish at keeping in contact with me. Bah.

I taste a bit like Almonds.
Mmm, the taste of almonds - anathema to many with nut allergies, and a bad sign for many more, as my taste is not unlike that of cyanide. Am I good or am I poison? A risky thing to guess about. What Flavour Are You?
