    After my whinge yesterday about living back at home, me and my Mum had a row last night

    She decided to tell me that the house was getting on top of her again, but seriously. I do pretty much EVERYthing now, apart from the lounge. She seems to forget that I also work all week but that seems to mean nothing to her. URGH! When I told her she was stressing me out again she flipped and told me 'Oh don't worry, you'll be fine when I'm dead with somewhere to live!' I was f*cking flabbergasted to say the least and ended up walking out. I mean, how childish can you get??!! Anyway, we did end up sorting it out and she told me to ignore her as she thinks it's because she isn't feeling well. Still, get a grip woman.

    I am totally stressing about my trip away now too. I have absolutely NOTHING to wear and no money to buy anything, how annoying!

    Anyway, enough for now.

    What a night I had last night!

    So I left work, got to my car and I had a friggin parking ticket! Fuggin swines that they are. My car needs taxing but it only ran out like 2 days ago and I thought they'd give me at least a week to sort it out, but nope. I now have to pay £30 I wouldn't mind but I only get 15min lunches to fit around Leia's nursery so the only time I have is on a Sat morning. The post office closes at something stupid like 4.30pm, right around the time I'm collecting Leia. HOW frustrating.

    I had to go and get cigarettes later on that night, so I went to the shop a little further away as it's cheaper and when I came out I thought 'oh, I'll go but a quick drive along the sea front'. Was rather pleasant. Then I passed a police van that was going in the opposite direction but though nothing of it. In fact, I was coughing and had my hand upto my mouth and saw him look at me but that was that. Then, as I pulled into my drive I noticed the van was RIGHT BEHIND ME!!!!! Shows how little I use my mirrors
    Anyway, I ruddy sh*t myself. As well as no tax *aherrrrrm* I have outstanding parking fines so ALL sorts were going through my head. I got out of the car and he asked me if I knew why they'd followed me. I said 'because of my tax' and he's like 'ooooh no, I didn't know about that!' Sh************t!!!!!
    Anyway, he thought I didn't have my seatbelt on because I put it under my arm rather than across my chest. He gave me a warning rather than a ticket (thank GOD!) and told me to tax the car asap as I could be stopped again as I shouldn't be driving it. Pretty reasonable considering.

    So yea, I've got myself in a bit of a mess regarding my car. It's all about money though god dammit.

    Hopefully I can resolve it all once I'm back next week.

    Wow.

    It feels like I haven't updated for yonks!

    Well, my trip to Bham turned out to be nothing but a nightmare. First thing that happened was I'd booked out hotel miles away from the city centre, so we spent shed loads of money on cabs. PITA! The show was amazing and I still love John Edward Afterwards we went into a bar right next door. A tramp turned up and he ended up fighting with 2 other tramps right where we sat. As we obviously didn't get involved he started shouting at us, calling us racists. b*tches, sl*ts etc. I was gobsmacked. He then ran at us with a walking stick he had on him and I bloody cacked myself. I ended up crying I was so scared.

    The rest of the night was fine, although BFF met up with a guy she'd met on a previous vacation. I was totally fine with it but as the night went on I got p*ssed off because I was spending all my money on ALL 3 of us. In my eyes that was taking the f*cking michael and so BFF and I ended up arguing. She can be a right **** when she's had a drink and I'd usually ignore her but because she was causing a scene I was raging. She was saying things to me that I never thought she'd bring up in a fight, especially in front of someone we both barely knew! You know, like things from the past that I aint proud of. What a cow.

    We sorted things out but because I had no money left to buy drinks to bring back to our hotel, she started again!! I couldn't believe it. I kept telling her to just back off but because she was drunk she kept on and on at me. We eventually went to sleep (her guy friend was in our room!) and woke up ok with each other as always. We said our sorries and all is now ok.


    After all of this, we were ue to fly home on the Wed but because of fog, it was cancelled and we had to be transferred to Manchester to catch a flight the next day. I am soooo tired from it all. I will not be leaving my isle for a while, that's for sure!

    Oh well, 7 weeks today until my beautiful Will Young comes to sing to me. Wooooooooooop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Another nightmare week in my life.

    The weekend was absolutely glorious here. Sun was cracking the flags and it was HOT! DBF and I took Leia out for lunch on Saturday and then we sat in the sun and watched the motorbikes fly by. Leia bloody loves them!! Everytime she sees one she shouts 'bike! bike! brrrrrrrrrrrm' hahaha.
    She is going to LOVE the next 2 weeks then as it's TT yahoooooo!!! Busiest time of year on our little rock and ppl come from all over the world to see the BEST road races IN the world. Love it

    Sunday, we had a normal walk through yet another glen. It was absolutely gorgeous. There was a massooooove waterfall with like a lagoon and ppl were jumping in. I wanted to myself but didn't have my bikini (yea right!! like I'd wear one ha) then we carried on down to the beach. I couldn't get over the beauty as we walked down a path, with the river flowing beside us, absolutely perfect.
    When we got to the beach the river ran right through the middle of it and there was a bit where the water was still and so the kiddos played in there. I sat Leia on my knee and put her feet in the water, which she loved! She ended up sat on the edge of a slab with her feet in, splashing and throwing stones for a dog that was playing too haha. It took me AGES to move her, bless.

    Mon & Tues I was off work with tonsilitis. My god did my throat hurt! I think I've been a little run down with all that's been going on lately. First I got a chest infection, then ear infection, coldsore and tonsilitis BLAH. Let's hope my dose of sickness is over with for a while.

    One of my childhood friends gave birth to a beautiful little girl on Tuesday morning. Summer Louise 6lbs 8oz I went to see her last night and OMG, she really is lush. I left feeling so sorry for her and her Mummy though.
    Mummy was diagnosed with schizophrenia about 6 years ago. Loooong story short, she was abused by her step dad and it turned her life upside down. She was constantly in and out of hospital, harming herself etc. She has 2 boys already who are like 7 and 3 (roughly) but they both live with their Dads, not because she ever harmed them but because she couldn't take care of them. She's been well for a while which is obviously great but now Summer has arrived and she is PETRIFIED of losing her. Social Services told her that wouldn't happen and her brother has agreed that if she was to ever go back in for a long period he will take the baby. Thing is, she is clearly being judged by the midwife team in the hospital and it winds me UP! She loves her kids too bits but because of her background, they're telling her she's doing everything wrong! She isn't though, she was SO good with her when I was there, urgh. My friend is scared that they'll confuse her being tired with being 'depressed' etc. Oh it just must be so flaming awful. I wish there was more I could do.

    So that's it upto now. I'm meant to be visiting my other childhood friend tonight as she had her little boy a few weeks back..... can I be arsed? haha.

    So I didn't make it to see my friend last night. If I'm honest, I completely forgot! I feel really bad but I had SO much to do last night, by the time I sat down it was almost 8.15pm. I just wanted to collapse and watch a bit of TV for an hour or so.

    I DID manage to go and see my sister as she wanted to upload some pics from my camera to put on facey. I happened to mention to her that I have emailed Supernanny regarding her kids and lets just say she didn't take it very well *gulps*

    Thing is though, they might not bite and swear at random people, but they do treat my sister and each other like crap! My sister was in tears the other week because the kids were being so disrespectful to her and her DBF (less of the darling!) is useless beyong belief. She obviously got straight on the defence which is fair enough. I wouldn't like family telling me that Leia was awfully behaved etc. Then again, it's only the truth and if we can't say it who can?

    First of all, I cannot believe it's the 1st of June!!!! Where in Gods name does the year go??

    What a fantastic weekend.

    I swear they're just getting better and better!

    Saturday I had a pyjama day with Leia as the weather was pants. We played with her dolls house and did some painting which she lovvvved. DBF had plans to go to a concert on Friday night so me, Mum, my sister and niece had a girly night and watched Sex in the City 1 with lots of nibbles.

    Sunday the usual gang (me, dbf and Leia. My mum, sister and her 3 kids, Angela and her 3 kids) got the steam train to a town at the south of our island. There is a park right next to the station, cordened off by a fence so we didn't have to worry about the kids escaping lol. The park is in a massive field so we were able to fly our kite and then have a game of rounders which was flippin' hilarious as the older generation didn't know the rules haha. We then had our picnic and got the train back.

    Yesterday (Monday) we had a BBQ at our house and blew up the slide and pool. Amazing times

    DBF and I went and caught a bit of the TT practise later on in the evening and then we came home for a well deserved sleep.

    Today I have started the Cambridge Diet. I'm looking at it like this is my last chance and I want to lose at least a stone (14lbs) by July 9th. Fingers crossed for me!!

    The Isle of Man TT has arrived!!!!!!!!!!

    Check this out, taken last night at the practice.


    It was SO busy. It usually gets that busy this time next week but people have flocked here this year and I LOVVVVVE IT!

    This is what it's ALL about...



    I know some of you reading may not understand what I'm so excited about, but to me, there's nothing better than watching the races. The speed, the sound, the tension of who's beating who. It is AMAZING! What makes it better is that people from all over the world come here for 2 weeks to enjoy it aswell and the atmosphere is electric. This is WHY I love my Emerald Isle so so so bloody much

    Well, the TT is well under way and the 4th race of the tournament has just this minute kicked off. It is SO exciting! I'm hoping our local boy wins today after his unfortunate retirement on Saturday due to mechanical problems. COME ON CONNOR!!!!

    My little isle is still buzzing and the street entertainment has been superb.

    Sat I spent time with Leia, went and bought her some new shoes and then we played in the park on our promenade, opposite the fair. She had a blast. I then went to pick up DBF at about 9.30pm after the roads had opened. It was absolutely heavvvving...... I was getting a huge thrill out of it though whereas my Mum was going nuts, making sure I was being careful!

    Yesterday we went out for lunch as it was my nieces 15th birthday then we headed into Peel for TT fun day. We were out for ages and got home about 6.30pm. I went back to sisters for some bday cake and DBF took Leia home to get ready for bed.

    I am so excited for tonight (or could be Wednesday) as we're going down to watch the entertainment on the promenade with Leia. She absolutely loves the bikes herself so will no doubt be shouting 'brrrrrrrrrrrm, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrm!' haha.

    Urgh.

    I am in such a bad mood today. Since I had tonsilitis, they (my tonsils) haven't really gone down and it's making me..... snore? lol. At least that's what DBF keeps telling me when he's having a go at me in the middle of the night! I am SO knackered thanks to being pushed about in my sleep. OK, yea, I feel sorry for him too but there is nothing I can do about it! So him bullying me during the night is not helping and I am zonked

    I just had a row with a guy I work with too. He's one of them types of people who one minute will be all nice and chatty and the next, he's grunting at you. Does my f**king head in. He shouted over to me about something and I was p*ssed at the way he spoke to me so I told him to do one and that I wasn't listening. URGH, what a nob.

    So yea, that's the feeling for my day today. Not good.

    The end of the TT has come and I am withdrawing already! Roll on 2011

    Well the weekend was rather sh*tty tbh. Friday we watched the last day of the races which was ace, although Guy and Connor both crashed and for a second I thought Guy was dead I almost burst into tears! Luckily though, he is ok!

    Sat we took a drive to Ramsey and played on the beach with Leia, but it was FREEZING so I went back to the car haha.

    Sunday we stayed in as weather was sh*te in the AM. Then the sun came out in afternoon, typical so we took Leia to the park to let off some steam.

    She's been a right little brat over the weekend, screaming and throwing tantrums. You can tell she's 2 in 3 weeks!!! Where does the time go??

    I'm stressing out over my mate and the predicament she's got herself into. She's started seeing a guy who is being accused of indecent exposure, sexual assault on a child and adult and posessing images of children!! She is convinced he is innocent and is SO into him. I have told her she needs to be careful, especially as she has a 3yr old boy. It doesn;t matter how nice he is or what his friends and family say. You just DON'T KNOW and can't trust people unfortunately.

    I hope she comes to senses!
