emotions all over the place. but in the end glad that I went, even though I’m going to have a bruise on my arm and it hurts to move it from going on that ride and repeatedly getting it bashed against the bar. I also have two photo’s of me, which I’m sure are horrific, floating around somewhere, and most probably on facebook. FAB.
but now I MUST try and sleep at least a little for my 9:45am enrolement talk tomorrow!
Why am I the only one that seems to have a morning talk!?
Wow. That’s weird. It feels-
I don’t know. I don’t think I really understand what’s happening right now?
my babysitting children are the best ever.
I love how my friends often love babysitting because they are being paid to sit down, watch tv and eat other people’s food. Not me. I have to play with the children I look after - not that I’m complaining because ever night has been so much fun.
Tonight was my last night of babysitting them because I am going away to University this Sunday. Therefore they gave me some presents and cards and it was the best thing ever. I wasn’t expecting it and it really nearly made me cry.
I should probably mention that these children have special needs which means you have to take more care when looking after them and it’s often hard to form relationships and trust with them. However, it didn’t seem to take any time at all, and I quickly managed to get them into reading Harry Potter; from then on it was pretty crazy and we would have Harry Potter quizzes every time I was over there; we’d watch the films ask each other questions about our favourite ….. and so on!
Therefore amongst my gifts it included an owl - for my owl; a scroll of parchment which the little girl had written a reciepe for an invisibility potion which she had created herself, and another thanking me for babysitting and talking about me being a Ravenclaw. One of my favourite lines is definitely:
“Ravenclaw would like to mention that you draw better than Dean Thomas of Gryffindor.”
There was also a really cute card, a little Lavender pocket which she had sewn herself, and an art set, because I am going to do illustration. It was really touching and I am definitely taking it all with me to my new room!
It was such a great end to babysitting as well, because tonight we wizard dueled from 7:30-9:15pm with spells, trick steps, Filch, Dumbledore and invisibility cloaks. [although I did crawl out from under a table at one point, jumped up to run and tripped and fell straight down on the floor which created some crazy laughter!] Then we built a large fort in the lounge and just laid around with torch light where we then did a small Harry Potter quiz and then “taught” Hogwarts lessons. I think I did a pretty good job of teaching Astronomy and Charms!
I’m not going to lie, I’m really going to miss them and babysitting because it is so much fun and I really don’t mind that I’m not left to my own devices and relaxation, because it’s always a great laugh. :)
Okay, so please don’t hate me, but is Doctor Who just getting a bit….I don’t know. I guess I just miss the continuity and right now, every episode seems to be its own separate thing and it is really quite crazy and erratic. Crazy is good, but I feel like we’re missing some good storyline’s like the old Doctor Who had…
When it comes to going to university in a weeks time, I think it’s going to be more the fact that I
can’t be bothered I won’t have time to go and buy food; or because it’s my money will rarely do so; rather than me actually not eating as much food or snacking so much on purpose.
I really want to go to a movie premiere in London. that’d be fun.
