Damn, where do the holidays go? Today was my last day of not having to get up early, and so I got up early. Bah!
The Summer of ’83 [aged nine years] …
On the second week of the school holiday the Ladies Fellowship went to Felixstowe with the children. My family went and we took a picnic lunch to eat at lunchtime. We had a great time at Felixstowe . I went in the sea and I swam for the first
[I must have been lying, as I’m sure we used to go to Felixstowe practically every day]
time in the sea. My mum only came to paddle because she couldn’t swim in the sea. For lunch we had Superman crisps they tasted lovely.
[poor, poor, grammar]
I went in the sea alot and when I was in the sea came right up to my neck. Then a nother week we went to Frinton and when I swam I kept putting my foot on very sharp rocks and they really hurt my feet. Near the end of the holidays we went to Frinton again and that was on a monday. It was ever so cold on that monday so we didn’t really go on the beach. Instead we went on some

grass. When it was nearly time to go home we had a barbeque.
The Summer of ’05 [aged thirty-one years] …
I rescued a cat. We called her Tabatha Cat. She is very nervous and is scared of everything. We will probably not get a nother cat. My mum came to see me. So did my brother. He had a man friend with him. They held hands. It was silly and they made me laugh. I wanted to swim in the sea but I couldn’t because of Tabatha Cat so we ate alot of pub lunches and drank alot of vodka instead. I dug up some weeds. I forgot to do my homework but it doesn’t matter because my teacher likes me and thinks I’m intelligent. I saw some dead people and then I played with my fishes. I thought about doing some decorating but the idea made me laugh too much and so I pee’d myself. Then I realised that I hadn’t pee’d myself at all. I read alot of books and finished watching Roswell [season one] so soon I can watch Roswell [season two] which will make me very happy. One of my older brothers moved to Wales. Wales is a long way away. It will take a whole day to get there. We were going to have a barbecue but then we didn’t.
