So, I've been home a day. My dad took the wheel off my bike... I'm not sure why, something to do with fixing my sister's. He now refuses to fix mine (this is a bike, I paid for...).
I am seven miles from the nearest town, and I'm now, effectively, being held prisoner in this village, as there is no other transport.
My mother and sister keep having conversations about nothing in particular, while I'm in the room. If I try to join in, they both stop speaking. Stare at me til I've finished making a comment, and then go on speaking to one another, entirely ignoring whatever it is I've said.
There have been three mentions of how singing doesn't really count as a musical skill, although there has also been one mention of my sister's best friend being "the best singer [they've] ever heard". This is despite the fact that she doesn't so much sing, as screech at the top of her lungs in an attempt to land herself a spot on the X-Factor... Ok, so that's a bit mean and bitter, but really this girl isn't very good... I mentioned that I didn't think she was doing her voice any good... Then I was told that I was jealous, and arrogant and thought I was a better singer than everyone else in the world. Also that they'd rather hear someone like [this girl] with "raw talent" any day, than my silly, pretentious singing... I suppose I should just suck it up and be grateful that they used to pay for lessons... I don't know why they did given the way they talk about it...
I'm supposed to be going back to York soon. I sensibly planned weekends in my own house because I knew they'd drive me mad... But now I don't see how I'll even get to the train station to get away from it all.
Oh dear, that is so sad, hope things get better for you soon. Sending you a big hug.

So sorry to hear about your friend's flute, hope she gets some success and so sorry to hear about your friend with the problems. Hope that your support will help her through this bad time

I've been a diet since last January and I've lost 27kg with another 20 to lose, but now I'm getting some really bad food cravings that I have to fight. Ice cream, cold puddings, cheesecakes, and my favourite British strawberries and cream. Thats what makes me scream
Well done on the weight loss, and hope that you manage to fight the cravings. Maybe just have a very small treat to try and satisfy them.
