So. I managed to dismantle Abbie's bed without major injury. One trapped finger was the only casualty of singlehandedly demolishing a bed that had taken 2 people to put together. Within the next 24 hours Abbie will have her brand new (to her, but actually 1940s vintage) bed, once more peace (and seperate bedrooms) will be with us.

Have offered a few things on Lewes Freegle today in the hope of decluttering, and plan on filling up my fathers car boot with charity shop offerings in the week, to be taken to the Age UK/Cancer Research shops in town. Decluttering is destressing for me, I am determined to sort out my habitual pack-ratted-ness.

Forgot to add earlier. I'm 26 now. I'm closer to 30 than 20 and I'm only mentioning for numerical value, not that I give a crap about numbers. I had a...birthday. I always feel selfish for feeling.. underwhelmed on my birthday. I try to make as much effort as I can for other people, and not that I expect anything in return, but I would like a big party and a fuss I think. (Though in actuality, I'm cripplingly shy in big groups of people and would probably hate such a fuss).

I didn't go to the Brighton Zine Fest this year because I felt nervous about going on my own, but I think I'm going to ask (one of) my brother(s) to babysit and possibly my dad too so that I can go to as much of it next year as possible. As always there will be sofa-age, or the other half of my big bed should friends want to attend (please. I don't want to do it alone. I feel like a (fat) sore thumb amongst people)

I used to have a crush on Liam Gallagher when I was 13. Watching Oasis performing I am the walrus from those days back when on tv reminded me of this somewhat.


Wow, I've been away for a while, I've felt disassociated with a lot of things lately, It's quite hard to describe my feelings. I've been stressed, distressed too. Wow, cheerfulness.

I feel lonely, but happy with it, I don't know quite where my brain is going, I only seem to have these little bursts of thought lately.

I'm looking forward to new DVDs coming soon (My Beautiful Laundrette (without dutch subs that confuse me), Tipping The Velvet and a new copy of Harry Potter and the Philosophrs stone because Abface and I wore the original out!)

Have BBC4 on now, with Elton John doing a fab cover of "I saw her standing there"

Abbie's new bed comes on Monday, and I'm so excited. Once that's in, I can start organising everything again. I think life had started to drive my crazy.
