Went with Tony for a long drive today in my car to pick up some wheels he'd bought on ebay. It was quite a nice drive but my car is getting slowly crappier. I didn't really get a chance to take any pics of landmarks or anything else of general interest while we were there was was a shame, but i had to be home in time for work so we were a little rushed. When we got home Tony started playing with his wheels while i got a decent pic for today. Well, it's not too bad, our little peach tree actually managed to grow two and half peaches to edible size!
Oh yeah, I forgot to take pic yesterday :/ Last time I missed a day was April 19th, not too bad.
Ah a day with some alright pics XD Well, it's more that I didn't have trouble getting photos today, which makes me feel the pictures are a little better ^^; Today when we got up we went over to Tony's mums for a little while and it started to snow! It was rely big flakes but although it tried to stick it didn't snow for more than 15 mins ;/ I went back to mine after a little while and me and Dad got my car started, it started really easily actually, but the battery is a complete dud. We went for a bit of a drive in it anyway, where I goo the moon pics :]
( Random pics )
Now, today it was hard to get pics. I went up town with dad halfway through the afternoom, and then went to Morrisons with Tony just before tea, but as shops often do neither offered any photo opportunities, and as I sat at the PC in the evening, I couldn't think of anything to photo.
At 11 though Tony decied to go for a drive, and although we went round and about I didn't get any photos but these two, taken before we left XD
Doesn't Terry look a bit peeved :x The stereo is Tony's btw.
( An annoyed sei )
Dossing about the house for a bit today, Tony wasin work at 2, right before he left it started to snow x3 Just as I thought that was about it, we get more! It snowed for quie a while, though most of the time it was light. I went out with Dad in the afternon & we went Asda hunting, we didn't find as good a haul as the other day but didn't do too badly x3
I dossed on the pc in the evening (what's new?) and talked to Mum for a while.
( And a monochrome view of England )
Yeah, I've been avoiding lj a bit, even though I've got good pics :]
Like sunshine, the snow really helps with wanting to take photos.
Last night it snowed loads, everything has a really even coating, even the roads. lots oof complaints about that from others, but we can stil get to the shops, people just don't like having to slow down.
I messed about in it for a bit once i got up some courage to go out in the cold. I tookk pics of my birthday meerkat, Shakespere x3 Then I took Dmitri out for a minute to get this photo, he walked out of the pumpkin, sunk & ran straight back in to inspect the stuff more XD Poor boy.
Aunty Betty & Amber visited for a bit too.
( During the day )
Today was pretty busy, we decided to mooch at a CEX shops, and so went over to Shrewsbury as it's the mobile phone one, we thought it my be more likely to carry ipod touches. Ever since Tony got me one for xmas he has been very impressed with it, but I won't let him hack mine as I'm k with it as it is atm. But when we got to Shrewsbury it turns out most the shops were closed, turns out just cause shops stay open in Telford on new years day, doesn't mean they do in shrews, which was a little annoying. So we left and went back toward home, but since it's been a little snowy lately we went wandering about the the countryside a bit and went to Badger. I thought I got some pretty good pics too xp Annnyway, when we got home we played on the pcs a bit, then had tea & it started snowing a bit! i mean, not bad for Telford either, it seems to have been avoiding us so far xp Tomorrow we're off to Aber for a couple of days, so that should be alright :3
( And during the day )
Today I got my car going to do some shopping while Tony was at work :] I really dislike my car again atm, I think it'll be fine in summer, but at the mo it's heaters don't work and the minor gap in the door that doesn't let rain in does let damp air in, which then freezes on the windscreen...greeeeeeeat! So once I've defrosted the outside, which needs doing at all times of the day at the moment cause england is such a great country weather-wise, I now have to defrost the inside too! Frost all over me in a car that doesn't have heating xd
Enough ranting about my car!! I'm not as bothered as I seem, I'm actually pretty okay as long as it starts & doesn't break down!
That was a lot of wiffle to distract from today XD Here's a couple of pics :]
( Didn't believe I have ice in my car? (aka boring pic so under a cut ;p) )
Today I knew what I wanted to do so when I got up I went out and started up my car with the bump starter, it started first time too! Quite pleased. I took this pic then headed off for a drive. I was hoping to see something else to photo while I charged the battery but unfortunatly not, so after half an hour or so I went into town as I decided to finally do the majority of my christmas shopping. It took me a couple of hours but I knew what I was getting and so only some minor moochings happened, and I managed not to get anything for myself! xD I felt quite pleased anyway as now what I see & can afford can be extras and I'm good otherwise :]
I went home, then met Dad when i was about to go out again so we went to Tesco as I wanted to mooch a little more, then we picked up Tony. I feel like I did a lot today considering I've got work today as well, yet I've stil only got the one pic!
Today we went for a bit of a drive in Tonys car to Shrewsbury. We didn't actually need anything from Shrews, so he drove about and told me things about Shrews & showed me places he remembered. It was a good excuse for a drive about & I think he felt a bit more confident on the roads he originally started his lessons on.
We had to get home for about 3.30 as he had work at 4, and when he left I started to 'make' tea. It was pick-and-choose type of tea so I just had to arrange it XD
( Shrews & back for tea )
Today is rained a lot...sucky, it was such awful weather that even when Dad came home he didn't feel like dong anything but sitting inside & watching TV.
I went on the pc quite a bit (what a shock- again!) and Tony was on his xbox, so I didn't get good pics today either x.X The first is all of our cars, I have to try and get rid of the mini within the next couple of weeks ;C Everyone shows interest but no one actually wants it! Ebaying in the end I think.
( Random pics for filler )
Got home at about 2 from work last night x.X
The rest of the day wasn't spent doing much, I think we went and got some new tyres for my Sei from the scrapyard, they were only £10 each and now hopefully they'll stop going down x.X
Dad was putting it on and discovered one of the rims that was on the Sei is pretty rotted, so now I'll have to get a new wheel too xd Stupid cars.
We went up town to get some supplies for tonight as it's gonna be a looong night...again, and got some money out for Dad too cause I keep spending his paypal money ;x Anyway, better go get ready for work now.
( The Sei's getting new tyres )
Today the guy who won the mini moto off ebay came to pick it up. He said he would arrive about 12, so while we were waiting I decided I wanted to charge the Seicento's battery, so I plugged it in. While it was charging the guy came and seemed very impressed with the moto and so that was good. He was buying it as a present for a 4 year old, and Tonys mum wouldn't let a 13 year old on it XD it conked out as the bloke had a go on it of course, but it just turned out to be the petrol. I stayed at home a bit then while Tony went to mess with stuff over his house, but he came back after a while to be run down to his and Pauls new 'racetrack'. After doing a sudoku I went home and put tea in then went out in the backyard to take photos when it started to rain ;d it was only when I'd gone inside that i realised the washing was still out there, so I had to rush out and get it too XD Tony then called cause he was getting soaked so I went and picked him back up.
What an eventful day xp
( Random pictures while I was alone )
Another lovely hot day, and I spent most of it about the house I think. I took pics before I went to work again (I was in at 4 today, moved forward from 2) as the poppies in our garden came out today! There is a pink one and a few reds, they a are really nice and look sorta like crépe paper x3 After work, I rang mum as I just missed on msn, it was like 1.30 I think. Didn't talk for long though.
( This poppy was huuuge )
Tony went to Pauls today to help build a shed and so I came home to beat his score on Bejeweled XD I spoke to an old friend on facebook for a little whle too before the weather improved enough that it felt nice to be sitting by the door, where I finished the first stage of the current project I have going. ;] I then got the pullip out and took some pics, as well as a set up I made a few days ago with ice and tulip petals. I broke it on the concrete to see what would happen and this is the best pic I got of it.
( Pullip under cut with new clothes omg yay ;d )
Strange how some days are easy to get photos, and others seem just impossible ;p Today you can see that now I have both cars at home, the Seicento (Terry!) is on the drive as it is SORN'd so the mini (Booge) has been pushed into the road, where it'll have to stay parked till it's running properly. If I keep it much longer and the Sei, I'll push the sei forwards more and try and get the mini behind it, so at least the mini won't be on the path.
As it was sunny out I took out Pullip and tried to get some pics, the ones I had in mind didn't really work as it was too windy, so I'll have to try again on a nicer day, I did get some with the Daffodils though so that was nice a spring-y :3
Also I put the coconut I bought and Dad and Tony helped me hollow out ages ago into the gerbs cage, they investigated straight away, chewing the moldy cocnut from inside and the hairy fluff stuff off the outside XD At least it gave them something new to look at :3
Got a new battery from CES after ringing around for a cheap one, and we went and picked it up at 3. Fitted it at home, and then went for a run for what was supposed to be half an hour but turned out to be more like an hour cause I stupidly went along a road leading to the TCAT island just as TCAT was getting out :I Got home and the battery wasn't charged, so looks like it's a dud...or something else is wrong with the mini, typical. Still, good day cause I got lots of photos and it was nice out of the wind (like in the car ;p)
( Pullips back, and the gerbs have fun )
Today we took the mini for a run to Wolves. It's not been very happy cause of the cold i we figured a run may do it good :3 Town wasn't bad but it was cold again and after looking in the DVD shop there wasn't much else we felt like seeing and it was too cold to go into the park so we went back to the car, we had still managed to spend a couple of hours though :3
On the way back to the car when we were within seeing distance of it, I looked up to check it was there and it was, only then I realised I don't drive the seicento anymore! There was an exact copy of my sei sitting right near where I parked the mini (only with out loony tunes stickers). It spooked me a bit anyway XD
This pic was taken from the mini while we had a snack before we left, there had been a car between us before which was why when walking back I hadn't seen the mini first and registered what was going on XD
I've been putting off this entry cause it's gonna be lon-winded and I can't really be bothered to type it as everyone knows already anyway but i have the time atm while I'm waiting before I go over to Tony's house to bed so I may as well type it.
Today I was to tax the mini as i insured it yesterday and it was also the last day I could use the Seicento as it's insurance ran out today. I thught this was a good idea as I wasn't wasting money on time i couldn't use either car while there was money on it, but how wrong was I?
It turns out, I found out as I went to tax the mini this morning, that the logbook is needed to tax a car and guess what? I sent it off to register it's colour change only this morning...I put it in an envelope last night and Dad took it with him today and posted it. Bloody typical.
So now I have to wait for the log book to come back and in the mean time i haven't got a car! Woo. Luckily Dad'll run me to work, otherwise i'll have to stay at home. I hope it doesn't take too long.
