Some Days Are Better Than Others

The downside to super-hearing is you can't ignore the phone when it rings, no matter how deeply asleep you were. I blearily reached out for the phone resting in its cradle beside the bed, kicking my legs to untangle the sheets from around me. The glowing numbers on my alarm clock tell me it's 8.00am. And a Wednesday.

Gaby: BOOK 2* Summer Girl*Part 68*Gone, Gaby, Gone

"Hiya Gab" Mad greeted when she opened the door.

"Hi Mad"

"You okay?"

"So, so I guess"

"You staying for tea Gaby?" Mrs P asked from behind her daughter.

"Dad's not expecting me straight back"

"I'll take that as a yes then" she countered

"Come on Gab," Maddy started pulling me upstairs, "Dad's got me a mobile for my birthday"

"I thought your birthday was Monday?" I managed as I was dragged into her room.

"It is but we went to get it today, that's why we were out earlier"

I breathed a sigh of relief.

Mad's new bit of 21st Century hardware was a dinky little pink and white thing that made mine look like the incredible hulk!

Gaby: The Anime Days- Part 40-Back Home

Even Jules was late getting up on Monday morning!

We met dad in the breakfast room at quarter to nine, I had managed to
dress more like a boy today, well at least the clothes were mine!

"Come on you two, your mum will be here soon"

"How's she getting here? " Jules asked

"She's got the car remember" I offered

"Oh yeah" she allowed

"We'd better get something to eat then" I nudged Jules

Gaby: The Anime Days-Part 39-Jenny's Day

I was woken next morning by the sound of Jules showering
and suddenly my world popped back into focus. The shower cut off and
shortly my sister emerged wrapped in a towel and humming an Eminem

"Oh you're awake then"

"What's the time" I yawned

"Seven thirty, mum'll be back in an hour to pick us up"

"Where's she gone?"

"Back to her flat to pick up her kit. You better get a shower, we have to get breakfast before mum gets back"

Gaby: The Anime Days-Part 33- Ouch!

I was unaware until I stepped into the shower later of my sunburn! Ouch did that hurt!

"Jules have you got any sunburn lotion?"


"Er can you put some on my back please?"

Jules came into my room armed with her cream.

"Lets have a look then"

I turned round so she could see my poor back. I was not prepared for her response a barely contained snort of laughter.

"What's so damn funny?"

Gaby: The Anime Days- Part 32 -Ride The Hills

Friday. Of course the only subject of conversation amongst those involved was exchange students. But there was more to this Friday, well I thought so anyway! It's only two weeks 'till half term and Germany and... well I can't think of anything else right now.

The day passed without any drama and as I have a race Saturday, I agreed to meet up with the others on Sunday for a bit of surfing and emailing.

"Come on Drew, shake a leg!"

"Coming Dad"

I pulled the door shut and got into the camper.

Gaby: The Anime Days * Chapter 10 * Dress Rehearsal

After yesterdays exertions mum decided that we would have a 'family' day. In parent speak that means we were going on a family outing whether we liked it or not, usually to somewhere we weren't keen to go. But surprise, this time it wasn't so bad. Dad drove us up to York but only after mum and I had done an hour's training ride around some of the north Nottinghamshire lanes.

I like York. It only took a little over an hour from home and the olds had decided we would 'do' the Jorvik experience so we headed straight there. For anyone who doesn't know, Jorvik is history brought to life with animatronics and you ride round in little carts. Everywhere seems to have one these days, Robin Hood in Nottingham is much the same. The other thing is that you usually queue for ages but we timed it just right getting there just before the coach load of scouts and the WI outing!

Gaby: The Anime Days * Chapter 7* What?

The images that greeted us represented quite a cross section of anime characters, but Jules had also selected costumes that she thought we would actually be able to make.

"Ok, Drew you've got Chi Light"

"Nooo" I groaned, it was a very girlie costume with all sorts of flounces and lace.

"Bernie you've got cat girl Merle"

"Great, that's dead easy!"

"Nina for you Ally"

"Should be a cinch"

"Rhod you will be the lovely Nuriko"

"At least it's not as bad as Drew's"

"Oh good, Maddy you've got Chi Dark, you're costume is nearly the same as Drew's but in black"

"I really like Chi, this is great Drew!"
