Coffee and Green Tea

I know, I know. celebrations throughout the land will take place today because, I, Michaela Garnett have finally posted some other pointless paragraph on wordpress after weeks of denial.

I’d like to think so, anyway.

I’m not sure why I haven’t written in so long but I’ll spare you the explanation as you probably do not care for one. This week beginning 17th February is the Half term holidays and I have had numerous lovely things planned during it that I thought i’d note down for memory’s sake.

I spent the beginning of it with Harvey,  we broke up ( from college I mean, not each other ) so I spent Friday with him and although we were meant to have a valentines meal, the chicken I cooked was raw in the middle and then when I put it back in the oven it went all dry so in the end I gave up and had a cheese sandwich. It was lovely. Then Harvey went down to the sea side to visit his Grandma and although I was invited, I stayed at home so that people could be seen and homework could be done!

I decided at the start of the holidays I was bored of my bedroom, so the little project I have started is drawing the disney castle, characters and quotes onto one of the walls. It’s taking ages and i’m not the best artist in the world, at one point  the castle just looked like a lot of wobbly penises but it’s starting to look acceptable. Harvey bought me 8meters of warm white fairy lights so I can put those up too so they look like stars.

I cannot believe I am 16 years old. More like 6!

Of course, some time was spent doing homework. Although i’m a published author, the subject I struggle most with is English literature, in particular, creative writing. All we have to do is write the opening chapter to a book and i’m finding it so hard,. my first grade was just a C, so if that doesn’t tell you  that ‘away with the fairies’ is 113 pages worth of absolute POOP I don’t know what will. I’ve also been going to the gym every day but today.

Yesterday, My neighbour and good friend Alex ( we call him Flanders, or Ned.) needed new clothes so some of us, his friends embarked on an adventure to Manchester. Dan, Lucy, conor and I all helped him pick out clothes, we even did the thing where you hold up two  shirts and are like ‘blue? or green?’  he chose green. I voted for us to do what they do in the movies where they all try on lots of outfits and we’re like, ‘nah, nope. NOOO..YES, IT’S PERFECT!’ but it didn’t happen. Dan also wanted some help, but finding a blazer to fit his arm length was hard, so he stuck with the safe option of buying multiple plain white t-shirts. Lucy said ‘i’m not buying any clothes until I have a car,’ yet she walked out with three bags. I bought a top, some shoes that were on sale for £3 and some mens bracelet. Conor, however, got his lip pierced. His parents aren’t too happy, but I wont go into that. Then we all had lunch and a bit later went to a cafe for coffee (  or in my case green tea) …actually, Dan was the only one to have Coffee.. so never mind.Anyway, It was a really nice day and it made me happy.

Today the girls ( Lucy, Gee, Sophie and Becca ) are coming round and we’re going to eat noodles, watch films and drink tea all night and all day. I’m looking forward to it very much.

Love from me.x

I’ve been trying so hard to think of a word other than ‘perfect’ to describe my day, but none of them have been good enough.
Last night my lovely boyfriend Harvey hosted a BBQ for our friends and it was just so fun, his mum bought lots of food and mine made pasta salad for us all and we played volleyball in his garden. Just general fun, I really enjoyed it. It did result, however, in the six of us that slept over getting a little tipsy and playing singstar (very badly) at 1am.
Then today, after a lazy morning on Harvey’s sofa, his mum drove us to Manchester opera house where we saw ‘GHOST’ the musical. I’m welling up thinking about it. I cannot describe how amazing it was, it was just… I can’t even begin.. Genuinely left me speechless.
Harvey knows how much I love the film – especially because Patrick swayze is my favourite actor, so Dirty Dancing is also a favourite film. So he bought me the ticket as an early birthday/ one year anniversary present and it was the beat present ever.
It was just incredible, it really was. He even bought me sweeties to watch it with:)
Afterwards, we went to an Italian tapas restaurant where we ate our weight in pizza, pasta and salad.. Oh, and maybe chocolate mousse.
I can’t ask for anybody more perfect and thoughtful.
Today has been one of those days where I just can’t stop smiling, and its all Harvey’s fault!
Oh, maybe not entirely, my best friend Sophie’s on holiday in Spain and she said that she saw somebody reading my book.. That kinda just put the cherry ontop of my perfect, ghost musicals am tapas cake of a day.
Lots and lots and lots of love from me. X
P.s. I hope this good mood lasts.
