I don't see why I can't be like the Queen and celebrate my birthday twice - December's a naff time of year to have a birthday anyway!
Last week, I went down to London for a few things. I got to eat yet more cake with Emma Forbes and Lily came along too which was nice. On Thursday evening, I went to the Ray's of Sunshine concert. It was a really, really good night but I was quite tired by the end of it. It was so funny cos about a dozen different people came up to me and asked "Are you Alice?" - it was so nice to know that people do actually come here and read it (well, I know people read it, but I dont always meet you all). JLS were the main reason I wanted to go and I loved Leona Lewis too. I didn't really know much about Pixie Lott before the concert although Milly is already a fan, but I just loved her music and the way she performed. It's getting a bit annoying, cos I keep finding things I like and I'm running out of time to start having new things lol. It's a bit like finding a nice restaurant on the last day of your holiday!
Next Thursday, Milly carries the Olympic torch through Keswick and we are all so excited about it. We should really take a bus up there cos there are so many of us and Milly's year at school are all going to support her too, so if the sun can just shine (I will put in an order lol), it will just make it perfect. Well, perfect apart from the fact that her Olympic uniform doesn't fit her and they don't seem to be that interested. Mum spent over half an hour on the phone to the helpline who weren't very helpful. They said to turn up on the day and that there might be a spare uniform on the bus but they couldn't say for definite. They were going to get back to her on Wednesday - she's still waiting lol.
The Thursday afterwards is my Prom. I'm besides myself with excitement and I can't believe that I'm going to get to go. I've still got to find some shoes which is quite difficult as my feet are small, thin and too sore for heels, they need to be completely flat, but as I'm already vertically challenged I'll make a sad sight next to my friends in 4" heels!
In a few weeks time, on 7th July, we are entering a float in Ulverston's Carnival. We've done a design around the Olympics and now all we have to do, is make about a million paper flowers to decorate it lol. Mum has managed to make it into a wine and flower making evening - she thinks that they'll look better after a few glasses (the flowers not the mums)! Anyway, on the day, we need Team Alice VOLUNTEERS to help us out for the afternoon, so let my mum know if you can help. The carnival is fantastic and Ulverston is such a lovely town with little cobbled streets and quaint pubs and stuff.
Don't forget that my charity website is HERE - we've still got bits to add to it, but it's getting there and I'm very excited that we'll be adding a shop soon, so you can all walk around in purple t-shirts, carrying a Mabel mascot lol.
