Back from York! I meant to post this up yesterday but got caught up in doing other things. But since I have no plans for the day - it's my birthday, I'm gonna do whatever I want! - I got time now. ^_^

York was so much fun~ Even though nothing opened until about 10am, which made my boyfriend's insisted early starts kinda pointless. But it was a beautiful city. ^^ Wish I'd taken more photoes of it but I got a shot of the York Minster from the top of Clifford's Tower and there are some shots of the cat statues that are scattered all over the city too. Apparently the people of York used to be really big on cats and so there are random cat statues all over the place.

We went into the York Dungeon as well. A lot has changed since I was last there but it is a lot of fun. They've added a few new things since I was last there and switched some stuff around. Rather than have a room filled with models of various tortures,they're scattered about a bit and there's a guy that plays the role of a torturer who explains a bit about it and used thumbscrews on one of the girls in the group. XD Someone else was accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake, we got lost in a mirror maze and sprayed with water a couple times. The chairs in the Dick Turpin room almost dumped everyone on the floor when they suddenly jolted as Turpin was hanged. XD It was so much fun!

I even got to go to Jorvik, which I've wanted to do since I first heard of it when I was young. I didn't get a chance to examine everything, as my boyfriend just wandered through and kept leaving me behind but there was a ride that went through a lifesize model of what York was like during Viking times - complete with the smells and everything. It was kinda... icky but I got used to it quickly and really enjoyed it. I want to go back someday, have a look through it all properly.

There were a couple other museums we went to as well, and a Ghost Tour. I wanted to go into the Haunted House, since the leafelet said that the crew of Most Haunted ran out of there screaming but we couldn't afford it. ;; Maybe next time...

But now I am back and can get back to my usual routine. Except today is my birthday so I'm going to do whatever I want today. I'm not going to go to work but I am going to go out, might do a little shopping and I have to go get my birthday cards from home. For some reason, my boyfriend's family thought yesterday was my birthday but no, it is definitely today. o.O I've been given a book token and a box of chocolate, along with a few cards I will have to thank people for. But this day is mine and once I'm done with my exercises (which I am waiting to do until everyone gets up and goes out), then I'm gonna do whatever I want.

Which means I'll probably spend the day RPing. >>

I'm 23 today~ ...No comments about me getting old please. -_-

So far, so good too. Nobody asked me what I want to do for my birthday, which is awesome because I've not had to explain for the millionth time that I do not want to do anything special on my birthday. I'm a year older. So what? The biggest celebration I've had planned is that sparkly text up there.

Mostly seem to have been getting chocolate. My mother got me pocky and chocolate covered coffee beans - with the warning not to eat many at once or I'll be bouncing off the walls. XD Also got a jewelery case - means I gotta find my jewelery now - and a handbag that doesn't match anything I own. XD Also received a book voucher I am very tempted to spend right now online and some money that I'm gonna save until the end of the month when I go to Newcastle.

Last week was... I guess a bit more eventful than usual. Carrie had her engagement party, which was... alright. Nothing much happened except the DJ was rubbish. His laptop broke and took an hour to fix. Saw a few people I've not seen in ages too, like Stacey, Danielle and Garth. Not that I talked to them much in the end. I sat next to Ross mostly and ended up leaving early because my boyfriend was getting sleepy. XD I swear, he fell asleep on my shoulder at one point. <3

Doctor Who is back on TV~ New Doctor too. I've had enough of hearing how much of a 'tit' Matt Smith is. I just don't see it. I like him as the Doctor. Including the bow ties. XD Sure, I'm sad to see David Tennant go but I got over that at the end of the last series. Now I'm willing to give this new guy a chance and so far, I like what I see. I like the new assistant too. Can't wait to see more~ I keep rereading the Radio Times article on it. XD Wantwantwant~

Which reminds me.

No one is to send me any news of any games I have yet to play that I may want. This includes KH, FF and ...well. Any Squenix games. I'll drive myself mad with want. No movie ads either because I'll never get around to seeing half the movies anyway. I'm just sick of seeing things I'm not going to be able to get for ages and ages, even after they're available. I can drive myself mad with the want but I'd rather people not help me. Seriously. The ad on TV for FF13 is almost painful to watch, I want it that badly. >.>

I finally have a copy of Dissidia Final Fantasy. It is wonderfully addictive but I kinda suck. At least for the moment. Once I've leveled the characters, I'll do better I think. But I'm seeing advertisements for Final Fantasy XIII everywhere and I can't afford it yet. ;-; I wonder if my mtoher was serious about getting a XBox 360 to play it on? PS3s are too expensive so she was asking about 360s earlier but they're still a bit expensive for us at the moment.

...I sort of want a PS3 more though.If we get a 360, then I can introduce my mother to all the awesome games on it... But PS3 has blu-ray which means I could get Advent Children Complete to watch with her...

Bah. It's not really my decision and it might not happen anyway. >.> But the fact that she even asked about getting a 360 at all just for FF13 makes me happy. <3 It is awesome, having a mother who plays the same videogames I do.

Adam's birthday on Friday. I haven't got him a present. No idea what to get him. Tried emailing him but he has no idea either so... I'm not even sure if he's coming back this Friday at all. He'd better though. Mom'll get upset if he doesn't. He missed her birthday and Gran's already so he sure as hell better come back on his or I swear I'm going to kill him. He's all but abandoned us for his girlfriend's family. He follows everything they do or say like it's the fucking gospel and never goes anywhere without his girlfriend. Yeah, she's nice and we get along but for once I wish they would just spend some fucking time apart. Bah. It's not even fully their fault. My brother is built to be a follower. Even when he pulls his pretentious elitist bullshit act, it's only following what he's aready been told by them.

Just got back from my night out. My mother met a whole bunch of people she's not seen in more than ten years and enjoyed herself a lot. I'm glad of that. I was a little worried she might feel awkward but there was no awkwardness at all. A good time was had by all~ The food was good, the drink was good, the company and the conversation - all good. Just hope I can remember enough later when I am inevitably quizzed by Pauline about it. ^^;;;

I'm still feeling really full though. The main course was huge. o.o I'm glad I skipped the starter or I'd never have been able to manage it. I think there were a few people surprised by how much I eat. Apparently I eat more than I look like I should be able to. o.O And I had room for desert afterward but not the birthday cake.

I got to hear about what the kids had been up to though and discussing how Aiden loves Indiana Jones and wanted to know more about archeology from my mother. XD He's got the toy whip and the hat and everything apparently. And he knows about the Egyptian trick of yanking brains out through the nose with a hook. I wonder if he realises real archeology is more about kneeling in a muddy pit for hours every day and not running from boulders and avoiding traps? Sweet kid though.

The story of the first time I met Pauline and her family was told again as well. I remember it as being very awkward and Megan kept asking questions about shampoo. >_< But it's all good. My mother had a few stories of her own to tell, particularly about the time Iain tied me to his sofa bed and texted her to say he wasn't going to let me go home (yes, it was all a joke but embarrassing!) and my mother texted back to say "I know all your family and so do my friends. Be very afraid." The first time she met him, she went through the list of his aunts and uncles to narrow down whose offspring he was. She was all "Well, it's not Dave and it's not Ronnie... Not Pat or Ann either..." and he went so pale so very quickly. XDDDDD But on the plus side, my mother also said that as soon as she knew which family he was from, I would be safe with him. It's good to know she approves so much, even after I've been with him for five years.

So tonight has been a lot of fun. I'm really glad my mother and I went along. If we hadn't, it would have been a night in on the sofa with some DVDs. Iain's mother was pleased to see us as well. She had no idea we were coming. Initially, I'd said I wanted to spend the day with my mother because it is her birthday but then we got that phone call inviting us out and it was all kept secret. ^_^ Apparently, Iain's mother was a little disappointed I'd said no to going out, which was why Pauline invited my mother as well. It was much better than just staying in anyway.

On the whole, today has been an excellent, if a bit hectic. I had to make two trips into town because I forgot to buy chinchilla food for Spike. He ran out two days ago and I had to keep him going on the last of the biscuit treats yesterday. >_< I still have to get my gran a present for her birthday on Tuesday as well (Why are there so many people born in March? Geez... give my bank account a break, please!) and a present for Adam for his 21st on the 19th. I have no idea what to get either of them. I couldn't think of anything for my mother either so I just ended up with a box of chocolates and some bath bombs from Lush - they do awesome handmade cosmetics and things, so it's a bit expensive but also really unique, which I knew my mother would love. She got a lot of chocolates for her birthday though. XD There's three different boxes, all varying sizes on the table right now. She was looking at them earlier, saying "My diet is really going to suffer..." but I know she doesn't mind in the least. Hell, she even suggested chocolate when I asked her what she wanted. XD

Wow, I've rambled here... ^^ Must be the wine I had. Someone kept topping up my glass but I didn't want to leave it unfinished on the table... XD

So. Uh. tl;dr - awesome times were had by all.

And there will hopefully be more awesome times to be had on Sunday when I shall hopefully go to the anime/fur meet. ^_^
sabulana: (don't cry for me)
Plans are made and finalised~ No getting out of this now!

My mother meets my boyfriend's family this Friday. She's met some of them before - used to be drinking buddies way back before I was born - but not everyone. She spent an hour on the phone talking to his sister yesterday. XD And she phoned again today to get our orders for the restaurant on Friday. I haven't yet planned what I'm wearing but I'll find something. ^_^

I've got my next couple Jobcentre appointments sorted out now. I met my New Deal Advisor today - the same woman I had a couple years ago as it turns out. They didn't give me a name when I was given the time of the appointment. But we know each other and get along well enough that I have no problems at all so far. I have two application forms to fill in for the same job - it's a library assistant thing but it's in two different locations but for the same university. I'll hav eto fill them in tomorrow and take them back to the Jobcentre for my next appointment - which is Friday morning. It's that or I pop in on Monday and do it. I don't know what the closing date is but since it has to be faxed and posted I figure sooner is better than later.

I have to get a birthday present for my gran soon too but I have no idea what to get her. I thought about getting another little crystal sculpture thing since I know she likes those but I didn't see any in town. My last hope of getting one is if I can find one on Sunday when I go to the meet up in Newcastle with Ross. Looking forward to that so much by the way. Last time was awesome even though I didn't get to stay very long. But I'm double-checking now to make sure it's okay for me to go. >.> I should go anyway but still. I should. Just...because.

Gah. So many things happening lately~ It's making me both happy and anxious. I hope everything goes well over the next week. Month. Better make that for the rest of the month. Once my gran's birthday is over, I have to think about my brother's birthday, then the next fanbbs meetup, my friend's engagement party, my boyfriend's dad's birthday and then his nephew's birthday.

Oh, and my birthday. I almost forgot about that. I'll be 23 in about a month. Crap.
sabulana: (bang bang zack)
I just realised...

I'm 22 now~

...First person to crack any jokes about me getting old is getting disemboweled. D< And why is there a freaking huge gap between the sparkle text and this? o.o
sabulana: (fuck gravity)
It's my birthday today. Whoo!

I was gonna finish stories to post them today but I fell asleep instead... >_> Ah week, maybe? I don't know what's happening tonight but I might not have internet access until next weekend after my boyfriend gets here.

Haul so far inludes £20 and a big tin of Cadbury Heroes. XD Yay!

And the weather is messed up. Snow, rain and sunshine all at once. O.o
