An update.....

I haven't updated for ages....usually that means my life is going so well. I am a pretty crap friend really so its no wonder loads of people just drop me from their Livejournal friends list because everytime I take a break from LJ I take a full break and don't read peoples posts....sorry guys...so if anyone has had anything exciting happen to them recently do fill me in! :)

So what have I been up to? well the usual stuff.

Work: has quietened down a lot in the last couple of weeks. I guess that's to be expected though.

Phillip: I have also been keeping my Phillip Schofield Site up to date and spending a lot of time conversing on the forum with fellow fans. It's nice to know that other people like Phillip like I do and I am really looking forward to March when I a group of us are meeting up and hopefully going to meet Phillip. So that will be fun. Something to look forward to. Part of the reason I took a break from LJ was because even though this is my diary I was pretty sure people was getting fed up with me going on about Phil all the time, the thing is the site is my project that I am excited about. I enjoy updateing it. I enjoy talking about Phillip, I guess that must make me weird or something. I hope not becuase I am realistic about things, I just think he is great and have done since I was a kid.

Penpalling: I have recently started penpalling too which has been nice. So far I have only made friends in the UK but thats cool. Mainly by filling in Friendship books which my friend Debbie sent me. I have about 15 pals so far and I enjoy getting proper mail and writing to people. I have 9 letters sitting here waiting to be replied to so might get to them tomorrow.

Autographs: I haven't sent off many requests recently. Still getting some autographs back but not that many. I haven't been out collecting recently. I haven't given up I have kind of taken a break from it all. I am going out on Wednesday though to Brsitol to a book signing and meeting Pete from Big Brother. That should be fun. Anna and Lil are coming with me :)

Competitions: Again been a bit of a slacler as far as comping is concerned. Started entering again the last few days though and won on Loquax Christmas Grotto which was good. I won £20 Woolworths Vouchers, £10 HMV Vouchers, £10 Firebox.com Vouchers, a signed rugby ball, a Fifi and the flowertots DVD and a book.

Family: All is fairly good family wise. Anna has been a lot better recently. Lilly is so cute and is walking around. A few weeks ago I sent a letter to my grandfather. I haven't seen him since I was about 7 years old. He lives less than a mile away from me and I felt now was the right time to try and make contact, so I wrote to him and sent him a letter. I didn't get a reply though I got an email but I didn't realise it was from him so I just thought he wasn't interested. Then last week I was up near his house with Anna and Lil so I decided to knock on the door which was scary because I wasn't sure if he would slam the door on my face or anything. I couldn't remember what he looked like or anything so I didn't really know what to expect. When I saw him it was weird I was nervous, I didn't know what to say but he was really nice, looked a lot like my Uncle Nick. It's really weird because I couldn't remember what he looked like but as soon as he spoke I could remember his voice from when I was a child. It was so nice to see him and I really really hope I get to chat to him or see him again.

Health: Health wise I haven't been to bad this year so far. I am quite chuffed that in October I didn't go to hospital and be put on the nebulizer this year after I had done two years in a row before. My asthma isn't perfect but its better than it was last year. I am still doing my morning paper round, I haven't had a day off yet. I quite like getting out in the fresh air in the morning. Not keen on the rain and cold though....roll on summer! ;) Still fat and eating crap. I seriously need to sort that out sometime. I need to go to the doctors soon for a medicine review, I am hoping they don't want to take me off my anit-depressants because I would be so scared the depression and anxiety will come back.

Love Life: Still totally unsure of everything. I am still hanging out with Nige a lot, I still care about him but I am still not sure if we will ever be together like a proper couple. I care about him a lot but I just don't know whether its right. It's so hard to explain....I quite like being free really and not having to worry about a man. Is that bad? I feel like I am getting old sometimes but you know what I don't even really know what I want from life anymore. When I was younger I used to think all I wanted was to be married and have kids and now I don't know if I could ever cope with a child. I watch Anna deal with Lilly day in day out and its bloomin' hard work....even I sit here sometimes and think "oh please Lilly just shut up" I love her to pieces but you just don't get a break. I can see myself as an old spinster haha :)

I am sure I have missed loads out but I need to go to bed as I am getting up early tomorrow to go to a craft show with Mum, Anna and Lil...should be fun....might find some Christmas presents or something....so what have you guys been up to? am I a craapy friend?
