*yawns* Geez I honestly meant to use this holiday period as a time to kick back, relax and try to get over some of my many illnesses. Ha not a hope in hell for the past few days I have been swept off my feet with busy busy things, admittedly a few of them were my own doing however there are several things that I have neglected doing for far, far too long *looks guilty at revision and coursework folders*...ah who needs qualifications anyway...urm wait *looks even more guiltily (I don't think thats a real word)at the lastest chapter of 'Is it scary' that haven't reviewed yet* very very sorry Idol Hands but I honestly have had no time recently, I promise to jet over there as soon as I've posted this!!

Christmas day was good fun. I actually enjoyed it more than I've enjoyed it since I hit my teen years. My best friend blew off her family and her current boyfriend to come over to my house and spend the day with me. It is nowhere near enough to make me trust her properly again but it gave me confidence that she seems to be sort of heading in the right direction towards restoring our friendship. It also helped that she brought me presents that I loved. Firstly she got me this snuggley duck-billed platypus toy that has this been bag in its tummy that you heat up and it acts like a hot water bottle, it is also scented with lavender which she remembered helps with my migranes and insomnia. She got me a set of 'Betty Boop' girls boxers thingys that date back to an old joke that only me and her ever got. And she also got me Orlando Blooms biography knowning that he is the only real life person that I go fangirlish over- she does know my Willy Wonka obsession but not all of it lol. Anyway it was nice to see she put some thought into it. We spent the day in a typically girlie fashion...i.e eating chocolate, watching the first season of 'Will and Grace' and talking non-stop. Now just to see if it lasts.

Then Wed, I had a sort of dinner party where I got the gang over. I spent the day handmaking Spaghetti Carbonara. Do you have any idea how freaking hard it is to make pasta from hand??? I mean it was well worth it for the final result, the whole taste is much fresher. The sauce was easy enough to make but geez it tired me out. And I hadn't even made the dessert yet. But it all went down well and put together with two classy bottles of wine everyone said the night was a hit.

Thrusday all in all could have been considered one of the most bewildering days I have had in a while. It started off with my male friend calling me up because he needed to talk about his problems, this kinda surprised me because I literally haven't spoken to him in ages. He's basically been kicked out of his home, got a girl pregnant, the girl gave birth early, the kid lived for two days and died, and now he's been expelled from college and the people he was living with kicked him out again. And I get this call out of the blue asking me for help, you know what should I do etc. I think he was also hinting he needs a place to stay. I said I'd have to think about it. I mean sure the guy has been through some serious shit but A) It feels a lot like I am being used B) This is enhanced by the fact that he wasn't there when I needed him. So still thinking about that one. Anyway half an hour after this I get another call from an aquaintence/mate Phil, you know I have some decent conversations with him but he's not really a friend, and we chat for a while and then he drops this bomb on my head that he really likes me and wants to start dating etc and he's got it all planned out what we'd do on our dates. Now I'm a free minded kinda gal and like to be consulted on such matters so I got a bit tetchy about that, also I happen to know he's got a reputation as a player which puts me off and I've already got my heart set on someone else who I'm too shy to go for. So I tried turning him down gently but it just seemed to make him determind to change my mind. So I have been avoiding him since then.

However the day significantly improved when my friend from New York turned up on my doorstep. The sneaky cow had failed to mention that she was coming to England over the holidays and it was such a great surprise to see her again. We've known each other since we were about three and then she moved to the USA when we were ten, it was wonderful to catch up and all of that. She also approves of my reading material, seeing as shes the person most like me I know I somehow thought she would lol.

And then there was Friday where I went to see my Matt's play. *Happy dance* It was freaking awesome, my little dude totally stole the show. It was a production of 'Oliver' and Matt played the Artful Dodger. Seriously the kid is so cute he should come with his own warning notice! 'Warning, over-exposure to this child will leave you with tooth decay from sweetness'. Seriously I am at a loss how to explain how much I enjoyed the show, although it was heartwrenching to see him on stage without me. But it more that made up for it when he yelled 'I love you Beth' at the end when they all did their bows. I will admit I went bright red but I blew him a kiss anyway. And then we all went out for a meal afterwards to a surprisingly posh resturant and he was so beautifully behaved all of the way through that he put most of the so called adults to shame. Its my personal belief that the dinner should not have gone on as late as it did but who was I to tell Matt's parents so?? So I stuck to his side all evening and played games, god I miss being a kid, was so much fun. It may be slightly mean of my but one of my fave. moments of the night was at the table when his mum leant across Matt and stage whispered to me (which meant the whole table heard) 'I think my Matt has a little crush on you!' and Matt when the colour that I was earlier and said 'Aww MUM!' and I just hugged him and said 'Well I love him lots too' and it kept a beaming grim on his face all evening...and when I wanted something I'd ask him to do it and he'd refuse and I'd put on this sad face and and say 'Don't you love me anymore?' and he'd flash his cheeky grin at me and run off to do what I wanted. Although I quickly stopped that when he figured out it worked just as well on me...Oh dear I seemed to have gone off on a babble about Matt again. *blush* Moving on!

So when I finally got home it was this morning (like I said..waaay past the kids bedtime) I realised that by the time I'd done everything nessesary I would only get two hours sleep before I had to get up and get ready to go visit my I simply didn't go to sleep. Lol. I will admit I am not looking foward to seeing my family, I am very much the outcast of the family and feel uncomfertable around them. But for my father I guess I can bear it for a while. As long as I am home in time to meet up with some people for new years celebrations I don't mind too much.

So all that is left to say it: Have a very Happy New Year and may the year ahead brings all that you could wish for...or damn near it anyway!
