Hope you have a fantastic day!  I'm glad you liked the card, although i'm sure it classes as cheating to open it a day early!

Because you won't get your present from me until next week, head over to [livejournal.com profile] perfume_world for a little something.  It's not a story (because we both know how good i am at avoiding it), but hopefully you will like them. 
Seeing as how it's been a few months since i last posted, i figured it was time to post an update on life :o)

Every year i make the resolution to be more active in lj, and to make more of an effort to respond to my friend's list...and this year was no exception - and i was going to! Until my computer broke. Over Christmas we were planning on reformatting the hard-drives on my computer as it hasn't been working properly for a long time now, so there i was, backing up everything on the new external hard-drive that i'd brought, when one of my drives chooses that moment to fail. Luckily i'd backed up the majority of stuff, but it turns out the computer motherboard died...so no computer. My poor brother took my computer with him back to Aberystwyth when he went back to uni, so hopefully i'll get it back February half term...Easter at the latest. Of it would happen just as my new course begins, which co-incidently relies heavily on the use of a computer. Luckily i have a nice family who don't mind me hogging theirs for the time being!

In other news...Torchwood has eaten my brain again. Seriously...there's another 11 episodes to go. There is no physical way i can possibly maintain the level of excitement that i have for Torchwood for another 11 weeks...i may possibly explode. But....Jack/Ianto!! How do i love thee...i love that it's canon (for now...i keep waiting to be disappointed...and i really hope i won't be), i love that it's hot...and i love that the kiss in my icon will be on tv tomorrow night. *dies* I will seriously explode. What with Stargate Atlantis becoming the love story for John and Rodney, and Jack and Ianto living the love story (With aliens as a bonus on both shows) live couldn't get any better!

I'm back working with two new kids last week...and already watching them progress and recognise new words fills me with so much glee - i can't believe i was planning on giving up the voluntary stuff....it's soooo fulfilling! When they get words right that they previously didn't know...it's confidence building for both me and them. It's so much fun!

And i think Joan is beginning to warm up to me now. In the past she used to undermine me with the children at lunchtime, and make sarky comments but lately she's been much nicer and is actually talking to me, and she's started bringing me pudding from the kitchen after all the kids are gone. I hated school dinners when i was at that school, but i loved the pudding...and now i'm getting them again!

And today i received mail from the Open University announcing that i've won the 'Julian Hodge Award' , for getting a distinction in my T172 Technology course. I've been invited to an awards ceremony on my birthday, where i will get a certificate and a cheque for £225 and they want me to write a profile that they can send to the local newspapers and use in the OU magazines. Don't think i'll be doing that bit...i hate getting any sort of public attention, so i'm not sure whether to go the awards ceremony. But! That money covers half the cost for this new course i'm doing! Working hard literally pays!

Are you guys all okay? *Pokes friends list*

*Goes back to staring at The Icon Of Love*
Happy Birthday luthienberen!

Hope you're having a lovely day and that you got lots of nice presents! :o) Six years of friendship! It's such a relief knowing that I have someone on the same wavelength as me...no matter how *coughs* gutter-like it may be - here's to another six years! (Hopefully at some point we will be able to crawl out of the gutter we fell in.....) Did the card arrive on time?
♥ Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] luthienberen! ♥

Despite the pain you and your family have been through lately, i truly hope you have a wonderful day. *Hugs* I'm so glad to have a friend such as you in my life! I'm hoping that your card arrived on time, although knowing the post, that won't be the case. So...sorry if your card is late!! :o)
Happy 21st Birthday [livejournal.com profile] luthienberen!!!

I hope you have a fantastic day, and a much better year than last year!

Hehehe...your present has been sitting on my desk for the last 2 weeks! :o)
[livejournal.com profile] luthienberen Thank-you for the message and it was lovely chatting to you! (See ya Wednesday, and good luck with the interview!)

[livejournal.com profile] akira42 Thank you for the text! (And it was cool chatting to you too...even thought i chat to you allll the time! See you in um...11 hrs?)

You know...i didn't get a phone call or a card from my grandparents (the same grandparents i wrote about last month) and it bothers me less than the fact that my friend Amy hasn't acknowledged my birthday.

Now that may sound selfish...but we've been close friends for 9 years, but grew apart when we went to separate 6th forms, but then we got close again. And now we've grown apart. I sent her a birthday card and letter for her birthday (2 days before [livejournal.com profile] luthienberen's birthday) in November, but i haven't heard anything from her since September, just before the whole Aber experience. And i thought to myself: If i dont hear anything from her on my birthday (which i always have done, even when we grew apart) then i guess the friendship is obviously over. And today? Nothing. And i have to be honest...the thought of losing her as a friend hurts a lot more than the fact that my grandparents have ignored my birthday.

I suppose i can hope i'll hear from her on monday....

ETA: Okay...so i'm posting this entry on the exact time that i was born 20 years ago...how cool is that?

ETA2: I suppose i should wish my twin 'Eastenders' a Happy 20th as well! May the plot lines improve!
Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] luthienberen!

I hope you have a brilliant day!

I will email you very soon - i have lots of stuff to tell you! (Ok - maybe not lots to tell you...but certainly stuff!) Also...i made you a lj icon, but i cant upload it here, so hopefully i can email it to you instead!
