Children in Need Bandeoke

When we (Not Quite that is) played at our local carnival, there was another band booked to play a set after us. The One Hit Wonders are a ‘bandeoke’ band. Basically they are live karaoke, encouraging people from the audience to come up and be the lead singer, complete with track lyrics and everything.

On Saturday, it was their Children in Need night. I was really keen to go, even though I had been shopping all day and ill the day before so I was feeling very tired. I missed the last gig, and I wasn’t going to miss out again! It was totally worth it. They are great performers, and all really nice, so it was good going. I sang Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars first. I actually broke the band somehow. They had been fine before, but when I went up something went wrong with the bass and all sorts, so I actually sang Just the Way You Are one and a half times… It was good fun. I couldn’t see anything because of the smoke machine XD

Because they are so nice, as I said before, they where keen to get all of us in Not Quite up to do a song. We’d been up individually and in pairs already, but for our last song we all went up and did Forget You by Cee-lo Green. They were impressed, but due to bad mic levels everyone else could only really hear Liberty. It was funny though because she was quite drunk and dancing around everywhere, so I imagine it was good to watch. Drunk Liberty is so funny.

Liberty’s friend Carole came and did a couple of songs and so did my boyfriend. His Sweet Caroline was a bit painful, but he did really well on Brown Eyed Girl and especially awesome at Year 3000. I think it was the Busted jump that he did with it that made it that much more cool XD. I pulled a muscle in my leg dancing along to that with Charlie. Good times.

At the end of the night everyone (bar like, 3 grumpy people, Liberty’s boyfriend included) piled onstage to sing Hey Jude. I only knew the Naaaaa naaaaa bits at the end, but it was fun all the same. It was an awesome night, and I can’t wait for the next gig!

Good thoughts of the week:

Monday: As a present for doing such and awesome maths presentation, mum paid for half of the Lion King Blu-ray boxset for me! The box is sexy and I can’t wait for it to arrive!

Tuesday: Me and Charlie went to Jazz band after school today. It was really fun and a teacher came to tell us we were sounding good already.

Wednesday: My Lion King boxset came today! It is sexy-licious ๐Ÿ™‚

Thursday: My stomach still feels a little weird from the bug/food poisoning I had yesterday, but it doesn’t hurt anymore. And I ate. I never eat when I’m ill.

Friday: Because I felt ill I stayed home from school, but Addy helped cheer me up by watching Lion King 1 and 2 with me. And she sung the African bit in the beginning of the Circle of Life.

Saturday: I went shopping with my friend, had a firework party and wen to the One Hit Wonders Children in Need Bandeoke night. It was all awesome.

Sunday: I pretty much spent all day doing a jigsaw puzzle ๐Ÿ™‚

Shopping

Today I was woken up at very early o’clock (ok, it was 9 o’clock, but that’s early for a Sunday) by my mother after a very strange dream about a spider. Mum asked me if I wanted to go shopping. I needed some smart clothes for when I have interviews and such, so I said yes.

After getting the babies ready and in the car, we went to Tesco in Telford. I managed to find a nice pair of trousers quite quickly, which is rare for me because I am awful at shopping. I never know where to start, what is good or what is just plain ugly. The even rarer thing is that the trousers actually fit me. I’m an odd size, just really too short and skinny for my own good. I couldn’t find a nice top, so we went to find everyone else in the toy section. I found the coolest thing ever there. Are you ready for this.

Yes, that is a Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar. I know it says age 6 – 14, and I’m actually 17, but I don’t care! Star Wars Lego is cool :).

After a quick dash to find another toy for ยฃ5 to use our vouchers, we went over to the Town Centre. My Step-Dad took the babies to the park while me and mum went round the shopping centre. We went into Asda first, but I couldn’t find any clothes I liked. We bought some things for a little tea party we were planning for lunch for my Step-Dad’s birthday, and mum went a bit crazy for Pudsey Bear things. The Pudsey Bear Lego is awesome though. We also went into the Puzzle Store, just to have a look. It made me really want to do a jigsaw…

Primark was the next big shop. We managed to get loads of good stuff in there. I found a smart top, a t-shirt, a skull scarf and a load of hair bands. Mission accomplished for me. Mum bought a load of stuff to replace the 3 yr old’s wardrobe and some socks for herself that no one can mistake as their own. Mission accomplished for her.ย  We headed out then, taking a quick detour round the Works, but then ultimately meeting back up with the rest of the family to go home for our tea party. It was a great day, and I actually had fun shopping for once! That almost never happens.

I will leave you with my good thoughts of the week, that I totally did not have to make up just now because I forgot to write them down from Tuesday onwards…

Monday: I got loads of work done ready for when I revise for Business so I can get my A grade.

Tuesday: I have finished my maths coursework and almost finished my further maths coursework.

Wednesday: I might be going on a shopping trip with my friend to buy going out clothes and a secret santa present. It will be fun.

Thursday: I got an A in a timed Business essay that I hadn’t even completely finished!

Friday: I stayed over at the boyfriend’s house and ate Chinese. Good times.

Saturday: I had a great shopping trip with the boyfriend and his grandparents. I will have a gorgeous new coat and a new book for Christmas. I can’t wait!

Sunday: I had an awesome shopping trip with mum. Now I have smart clothes ๐Ÿ™‚

Good Thoughts

I am trying to install an updated version of Microsoft Office on my laptop, and it is proving very difficult, so I’m not going to have time to write a proper post. I’ll just write my good thoughts of the week, and then write a proper post tomorrow.

Monday: I went to the Argos recruitment event. I think I did well, and I had fun. Just have to wait for a phone call now.

Tuesday: My friend came round and we basically watched films all day. Plus she let me borrow a load of DVDs.

Wednesday: I got a conditional offer from Liverpool University. Just waiting to hear back from the other four now.

Thursday: I got to stay with Ivy in Northampton ๐Ÿ™‚ We made Enchiladas and watched Thursday night TV.

Friday: Me and Ivy went shopping. I got a new book, a hat to make her look like Edith from Despicable Me (don’t ask) and series 1 & 2 of How I Met Your Mother on DVD. It was legen- wait for it… -DARY!

Saturday: I presented my maths presentation and everyone liked it ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunday: I had a great time at the boyfriend’s house for Sunday Lunch. I even ate a normal (mostly) sized plate of food!

Last week I wrote a post about making a new, more positive me. I had a plan to be more happy, and I felt really good about it. Until the next day. I don’t know what it was, but I just felt really depressed, and did so for a few days. I just wanted to cry all the time, and did a couple of times in fact. I wrote a song one night when I couldn’t sleep, just trying to work it all out. I don’t know if I’ll post it on here or not. Maybe someday. Then I had a talk with the boyfriend, cried on him for a little bit and felt better. I still don’t know what it was that was wrong, but he made me feel better, and I have been happy pretty much since then, so I thank him for that :).

The rest of the week has been amazing. I’ve had loads of fun with my friends, College has ended for half term, and I am really on top of all of my work, so I don’t have a lot to do over my break. I also asked Charlie to teach me how to practise piano because it was really frustrating me that I was practising every day, but not getting any better. My practising is a lot more efficient now, and I have improved quite a lot I think. I haven’t practised for the last couple of days due to people being round, and then doing a photo shoot at my friends house for part of her Art coursework. I plan to do an extra long practise today though, and then I will get back into the swing of the routine.

Also this week, I have had a reply from all of my University choices saying that they have received my application. I am also one step closer to getting my first job. I am going to attend a recruitment event tomorrow (eep!) and hopefully everything will go alright and I’ll have a job over the Christmas holidays. Suddenly it feels like I’m actually going to have to be a grown up soon.

So, despite the major setback in my Happy Plan at the beginning of the week, I feel pretty good about everything at the moment. I will leave you with my good thoughts for the week.

Monday: My gum doesn’t hurt anymore. Now I can brush my teeth properly. Also, I have finally seen the Phineas and Ferb film. It was awesome!

Tuesday: I had an awesome break time with my friends. For some reason EVERYTHING is funny around them…

Wednesday: I got to snuggle in bed reading with the boyfriend for an extra hour this morning ๐Ÿ™‚

Thursday: Last day of school. Need I say more?

Friday: I called Argos to confirm I could attend a recruitment event on Monday. I am one step closer to getting my first job.

Saturday: I had an awesome time at my friend’s house doing our last photo shoot and killing zombies (or not, I wasn’t very good at it XD).

Sunday: I have finished all of my maths homework for over half term. I only have business homework left to do.

Bring on the Storm

As promised yesterday, here is my post of the week. I thought I would post the lyrics to a new song I wrote, because it links in with my good thoughts. I haven’t done the music yet, I thought I would wait until the band was together. I have some ideas though, which include awesome drum solos and stuff. Here it is.

Bring on the Storm

VERSE 1:

We are like lightning

Watch the sparks fly

We are like rain clouds

Darkening the sky

The electricity is building

Thereโ€™s static in the air

Can you feel the drumming?

The beat is everywhere

CHORUS:

Bring on the storm

Let the clouds burst

Wash away all the hurt

Bring on the storm

Let the lightning flash

Hear the thunder crash

Bring on the storm

VERSE 2:

We are like thunder

The noise is all around

We are like rain drops

Splashing to the ground

The wind is howling

Blowing through the air

Can you feel it drumming?

The beat is everywhere

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

The storm is coming to a head

I canโ€™t take it anymore

So open your heart

And let the rain pourโ€ฆ

CHORUS

VERSE 3:

The storm has passed now

It has cleared the air

We are the drumming

The beat is everywhere

I know it’s not much of a post, but I’ve only had one day to think about it, so that’s all for now. Hopefully next week’s will be a bit more substantial.

Now to leave with the good thoughts of the week:

Saturday: I have a new film that I love, love, LOVE! It’s Disney (of course) and has the coolest chameleon called Pascal (which is a maths geek out too). The film is called Tangled and is a re-telling of Rapunzel. It is awesome! I’ve seen it 3 times in the last 2 days and have watched all the special features. Have I mentioned that I love it?

Sunday: Liberty liked my song Bring on the Storm that I finished writing the words to last night.
