Wow. I'm O.L.D
But, I had a lovely day, especially after all the excitement of my results. I even got cake for breakfast, although it was my Dad's leftover birthday cake (as his is on the 26th - bit stressfull for my mom that we're so close together). I'm getting my amazing cake at my birthday meal. I will post pictures.
I woke up to balloons and banners and general excitement, and I got:
A beautifull silver locket which is very Victorian.
Various books and CD's
The DVD boxset of Party Animals (yay!)
Pretty dreamcatcher earrings made by Native Americans
Pride and Predjudice and Zombies from my best friend Alice, who knows how much I hate Jane Austen. Can't wait to get stuck in!
During the day I went shopping, and bought the dress I've been lusting after for months in Warehouse. It's gold and silk and has a taffetta underskirt and makes me feel like a 1950's debutante. Ohhhh, it's so beautiful, and now I own it!!! I'm wearing to my meal on Sunday!

Thought I was going to vomit this morning, but then I went up to school and discovered I had got:
A* English Lit (So, so happy)
A* English Lang (So, SO Happy)
A Science ( I didn't do a scrap of work in scienece all year, and crammed teh night before. You see hildren? This is where cramming gets you.)
A German (My teacher predicted me a B! No idea HOW I got an A, but thats not my problem!)
A Maths (hahaha, mean primary school teacher who told em I'd never get any kind of mark in maths!)
A Additonal Science (like a second, harder science qualification)
B Music (which I thought I was going to fail)
So, lovelies, I'm SO HAPPY!!! I cried a little bit. && I'm gonna be in the paper.
AND, it's my birthday tomorrow!!!

First we stirred:
Then we added milk: (lots of it)
Then we panicked a bit, because it looked like this, and that didn't look too good. However, it did taste good, and was 100% safe to eat raw, because it had no eggs. I always worry that I might get salmonella when I lick out a cake bowl. Then Loz & I washed our hand very thoroughly (You can't be too sure with all this swine flu) and balled the dough into little patties. Into the ovens for 25mns and....
Well, I don't have a picture to show you of that, because we got quite caught up in the eating of them. I'll suffice to say they were good.
And - we comforted ourselves with this thought - Peanut Butter's good fat. So really, it was a healthy thing to make.

Me & My best friend once sat on a park bench eating a cheapo Battenburg once, laughing at all the dull people walking past us. That makes me feel young, too.
Anyway, it doesn't look too tricky. Famous last words.
I'll let you know how it goes.

I think I'm probably still in shock, even though I've been typing it all day.
I wrote a poem miles ago, and then I got an email about this Poetry Rivals competition, and thought; 'what the hell, there's no harm in entering'. So I sent it off and promptly forgot about it.
This morning, however, I went down to microwave my tea and found quite a lot of post on the doormat, so I made sure there wasn't anything for me. Well, strictly speaking, there wasn't, but there was a letter adressed to "The Parents Of..." me. Now, naturelle mon, I freaked out a bit, thinking it might be something from my new school saying I couldn't go (which would, in part, be a blessed releif), but when my mum opened it, it was from Poetry Rivals saying there going to publish me.
I'm really excited. I mean, they haven't picked the top 50 to go to the Grand Final, and I'm almost certain that I won't get into that, because I'm only 15 and still a bit crap, but... I don't care.
I'm going to be published. I'm so happy for me.
