Scottish Smoking Ban

Smoking is to be banned in enclosed public places in Scotland from 2006. All I can say is, woohoo! Lets hope this comes to pass. Scotland would become the first place in the UK to adopt such a ban, following…

PLACEBO MAGIC, Robert Smith, Hoobastank

Me and Linds just got home to Stirling tonight. Left Steve's (Linds' bf) place in Brighton about 4pm. Got into Edinburgh Airport, early by the way, at about 8.20pm. Mum picked us up, took us to my dad's,…

Tired, Ill, Nervous

A very short entry just to say I'm ill and completely energyless and I'm not sleeping. Which ain't good. Uni starts again tomorrow. I'm an ancient 4th year now... all the 1st years look so young... it's…
