Three Lines on the Shirt, all Drawn with a Ruler

Last weekend I did my Duke of Edinburgh Silver expedition. I won't go on about it for too long but I'll explain the basics :) On Friday we left school at about 2 and stayed overnight (camping of course) On Saturday we walked 20km, camped overnight, walked 18km on Sunday and 12km on Monday. It was very hard- we went to Exmoor which is really hilly and it was so hot! I didn't think I'd enjoy it but I really did. I'll admit that I absolutely hated those hills but you soon forget the pain and remember the fun :) That sounds so corny, I apologise!

This is our group photo on 'the beacon' on top of the moors somewhere. We had a good group, half boys half girls so we didn't have to look at the map and they didnt have to cook (very stereotypical, sorry!)

This is us three girls, I have to say, not looking our best- no make up, unwashed hair and looking pretty sweaty! I guess that's part of it :/ That's Fran, Me and Bekah in case you were wondering :)

This one's a bit random...We had to carry food/tents/sleeping bag etc. and when you take your bag off it makes you feel like your yes, I'm demonstrating this in the photo :D

The group on a well-earned break :)

One of the many beautiful views, we walked by the coast for a lot of the way and it was so pretty!

So yes I said I wouldn't go on for too long, I hope that was nice and brief :)

Thanks for reading, I really do appreciate followers and your comments mean a lot :) Bit of a soppy ending, sorry guys!

P.S The title of this post has a bit of a story... I stupidly thought that the football song 'Three lions on the shirt' was 'Three lines on the shirt' so I had that sung to me all weekend. I also asked someone what football team their hat was, when it was England, that's how the song was brought up!

Football and Photos

Ahh I'm such a busy bee at the moment, even though school's finished and exams are over I still manage to have too much to do! I had my last exam yesterday finally! I felt like the only person who wasn't free yet :(

So anyway it was the England v Slovenia football game as you probably already know :P I went to my friend's house to watch the match- we're not really into football but you know, it's the world cup we've got to make something of it! To be honest we weren't really watching it, it was in the background while we talked and took photos!

Thats' our little family photo :) I don't usually like putting people's pictures on here seeing as no one knows about this blog but ahh well, a few won't hurt, hey?

The one above's pretty funny- we put the camera on self timer so we all sat there smiling when Lydia (middle) shouted "Look they've scored!" so we all turned to the TV looking really shocked and confused and then we realised it was half time and they were replaying the goal! Classic photo, I love our bemused faces!

This one's a bit I said I don't really like putting photos of other people on here so I found one that was just of me. It was supposed to be really cool because one eye would be bigger than the other, I guess it didn't really work!

From there I went on to my other friend's house, with the T4 on the beach girls, to practice setting up the tent and just for a general gathering :) That was really good fun, there are some photos but I'll put those up another time. We stayed over in the tent which is amazing! It's a giant teepee that easily fits the 7 if us who are going, plus all of our stuff...ooh I'm excited now :D

Being the busy person that I am, I woke up in the morning and rushed home for a shower so I could go to someone's birthday meal. It was good but a bit awkward because they're not really my group of friends, so I had to keep making small talk...ahh well it was good to see some more people! I went shopping for a bit then had to go DofE food shopping which just wore me out to be honest!

So that leads me nicely on to my last point- I won't be posting for a bit because I have my silver Duke of Edinburgh expedition over the weekend. I'm actually dreading it, we're wallking for 3 days and camping for 3nights in Exmoor. It better not rain! I'm back on Monday so I'll post some pictures if we get any good'uns :)

I hope you're all ok, thanks for reading!

A House?

"Mum, I think I'll tidy my room"
"Oh good, the estate agent's coming tomorrow to value the house. We looked round a house and want to make an offer."

Oh. Brilliant. This is the first I've heard of this. Since when did we want to move house? Since when did we decide there was a reason to? Oh right yeah, I's not 'we' it's 'they'. Their stupid little tag-team that holds the majority against me as my brother doesn't seem to be bothered about much at all.

This is just typical my parents. It won't happen. They'll realise it's much easier to stay where we are and give up on the idea for a few years. But still...I cant help thinking about it. I have mixed feelings, half of me thinks it would be an adventure, although in the same town it would be a fresh place to have more times and make more memories, plus it's an amazing house that's bigger and better than ours....but the other part thinks of the old times. This is OUR home. I've spent ages making my room how it is, decorating, sticking, ordering. The garden holds countless memories that wouldn't be forgotton but wouldn't be so vivid. I don't want another family in OUR home, changing things and making it theirs! I've grown up here and wouldn't want to leave it.

As I said- it's not going to happen. Well I hope not.


Don't you love when you tidy your room but you have to make it messier first? You can even see the spot on the floor where I was sitting :P

Eventually it got there! It looks even tidier than this's crazy my room's always a mess! These photos make it look really colourful, I think the camera was on a funny setting...

Sorry this was a boring post, I was proud of my handiwork and wanted to share it with you, sorry for the lack of interesting details, it's late and I need to get to bed :)

P.S This post is supposed to come above the one about the house...I think because it was a draft with the photos in, it went in the wrong order...ahh well :)

The Good Times Are Calling

I'll admit this post is a bit delayed but ahh well I thought I'd share my Thursday night with you :) Basically we went camping in the woods with a load of people from my year...

I'll be honest with you, it's not a great story, nothing interesting happened, I suppose it was quite surreal. We got there at about 7.30 and it was so awkward- you know at school when there are different groups that tend not to mix? Well it was a handful of people from each group so no one really knew who to talk to. Eventually, at about 10 o'clock, it got dark and most people had had quite a bit to drink so we all relaxed and started to come out of our shells :)

Apart from the odd drama of people getting too drunk or losing things nothing really happened! It was just a relaxed night, we sat around the campfire talking to a load of people we hadn't seen properly in a while, which was good. I like things like that where groups mix together and you end up speaking to people you never thought you'd be friends with :) Anyway, I went to bed at about 2.30 but didn't get any sleep. Everyone was so loud outside the tent, they were literally talking (and shouting) all night!

I got up at 4.30 (it was light at 4 so everyone was up) to help my friend find her shoes because some idiot had been throwing them round the night before. It was so surreal waking up in a wood with all the trees and the campfire still burning! We couldn't find the missing shoe so I went back to bed til 5.30 and managed to get a few minutes of sleep!

At 5.30 we all got up to pack up the tents and everyone was gone by 6.30. We waited for my friend's mum to bring her some shoes and then as most of us couldn't go home (because it was such a stupid time in the morning) we went and sat outside Tesco's for a bit. It's right next to our school so the teachers started arriving which was quite funny! I walked home at 8 and went straight to bed. I was so tired I didn't wake up until 3.30! My parents thought I'd snuck into bed in the middle of the night!

So yeah, it was a good night, I'm glad I went even if it wasn't the most exciting of evenings! I do love camping. Ok I didn't sleep, I had sticks in my back all night and I felt pretty shit in the morning but all in all we had a good time :D I think people are already planning to do it again...

Thanks for reading :)

T4 Sur la Plage

I'm so excited! It's just over 2weeks until I go to camping with my friends. We're staying for 3 nights and going to T4 on the beach on the Sunday...I dunno what we're gonna do for the other days, apparently Weston-super-mare isn't the most exciting of places! Haha I'm sure we'll find something!

The line up is really good, I'll admit most of the artists aren't really my sort of music but it will still be amazing! And there are a few little gems in there who I actually cannot wait for :D I don't know how may artists there are going to be in total, but they keep adding to the line-up, here it is:

Kids in Glass Houses
The Hoosiers
Plan B
Dizzee Rascal
One Night Only
The Saturdays
Taio Cruz
Professor Green
Diana Vickers
Pixie Lott
Ellie Goulding
Scouting for Girls
Alexandra Burke
Tinie Tempah
Jason Derulo

So yes, I am VERY excited! It'll be so fun camping as well, we can just relax and not worry about anything, we haven't really planned much, I think we'll just live off biscuits and many trips to the chip shop :) Are any of you guys going? You never know we might be staying a the same campsite, that would be funny...

Thanks for reading, I hope you have sunny weather like us :D xxx

Run Forrest Run

Urgh. Running. It's unfortunately one of my hobbies...don't ask why it's just one of those things that you get into and it's hard to get out of I suppose. I've been training at a club for about 5 years now, I'm no good, I usually come almost last in cross country and try to avoid athletics like the plague.

Annoyingly, tomorrow I have to do a school's race. For some reason they put me through to the second round even though I purposefully didn't turn up to the first one...and it's so early in the morning! 9.35am, ridiculous! You can tell it's organised by adults. It's a sounds like a long way but it's my favourite distance- any shorter and the people just sprint away, I'm usually left on the start line for a few seconds before taking up my leisurely jogging pace :)

I suppose running is good though, if you do it you'll get what I'm's horrible but addictive! I'd better get some sleep in preparation for my early start, grr.

Thanks for reading :) Georgina xx

I use mouthwash

This is my face, covered in freckles with an occasional spot and some veins.
This is my body, covered in skin, and not all of it you can see
And, this, is my mind, it goes over and over the same old lines
And, this, is my brain, it's torturous analytical thoughts make me go insane

And I use mouthwash
Sometimes I floss
I've got a family
And I drink cups of tea

I've got nostalgic pavements
I've got familar faces
I've got mixed-up memories
And I've got favourite places

And I'm singing 'oh oh' on a Friday night
And I'm singing 'oh oh' on a Friday night and I hope everything's going to be alright

This is my face, I've got a thousand opinions and half the time I'm trying to explain
And this is my body, and no matter how you try and disable it, yes, I'll still be here
And, this, is my mind, and although you try to infringe you cannot confine
And, this, is my brain, and even if you try and hold me back there's nothing
that you can gain

Hate people who think their life is a drama

Yer this title is a bit hypocritical...I do hate people who think their lives are dramatic, I don't believe I am one of those people, but I do think we all have things to complain about however lucky we are and I choose to vent through the medium of blogging :) Here goes...

Agitation. That seems to be all I feel at the moment. Everything just pisses me off and thinking about doesn't help much either. Huh. I keep meaning to update this blog and I should be a bit more positive but right now is the time for ranting and moaning, sorry guys.

Ok the first one- exams. Yer we all have them, well most of us, so you feel the pain. It seems to just take over...every happy thought is drowned in the dreaded 'r' word.
(I've just realised the girl in the photo is drawing but let's pretend it's maths :P)

Clothes...Ok I know these complaints are so petty..I'm a bad person for getting stressed over clothes but they seem to be all I think about. Because summer's starting and my wardrobe consists of a few pairs of jeans, a variety of hoodies and plain t-shirts, I'm getting desperate. I just dream of floral dresses, sunglasses and denim shorts...

My hair. It's never been right, but now it's just boring I suppose. I try to do stuff with it but it doesn't wish to cooperate. I used to have it really short when I was little so now I'm obsessed with growing it and even though it's not far past my shoulders I don't wanna have it cut...however out of control it is.

This is the real agitator (if that's a word) Noise. Petty but boy does it get to you. Being at home all day doesn't help and the fact that my dad decided to hire a friggin cherry picker to do 'work on the house' halfway through my drills and hammers it is for me.

Sleep. The old body clock's pretty fucked up again. I go to bed at 2-3 in the morning and get the rents coming in my room at 9am telling me not to waste the day and that I have work to do. Cheers.
(I love the sofa in the picture below <3)

Braces- small but friggin mighty. I hate the bloody things, they cause me nothing but pain and I've just been told my 2 baby teeth, which should be long-gone, have to be pulled out -.-
Family, who needs 'em? Yes they are being nice...but overly nice as if to compensate...I dunno what for, I suppose they saw me drifting a bit. But I want to drift I don't want to be wrapped in cotton wool. I just don't get them and they don't get me.

Again, I am a horrible person for complaining about this, please forgive me. Food, I dunno, I'm just gaining a lot of weight at the moment. I've always been really skinny and want to stay that way but boredom transfers to hunger and I pile of the pounds. It does get me down.
Thanks for reading, I hope you're all well and I don't bring you down with my meaningless non-problems... Have a good week, let's hope for some sun :)
