I need lessons in organisation ( yeah thats right, with an s stupid spell check)

OK so my original plan for this weekend was that i was going rounds sophies, who was going to drive me, jade and dale to daves to stay there on Friday night, and we had a hostel booked for Saturday night in Liverpool because sophie had an audition for a university early sunday morning.
And then she was going to drive us all back home.

So the first half of the plan went according to plan we got to daves fine we stayed the on Friday night, and hung out all day on sat which was sweet, but them i received an e-mail from one of my band mates saying " dude, don't forget the photoshoot tomorrow".
I shat my pants because i forgot that we had a band promo shoot at 12 and practice at 7.
So very swiftly i had to organise a way back to winchester, which sucked because i think i left sophie to stay in a room by herself :( sorry sophie.

The journey back consisted of:

Getting a lift to derby coach station.
Getting a coach from derby to London Victoria at 3am.
Walking over to Victoria station and waiting for about 2 hours.
Jumping on a train from Victoria there to Epsom.
Catching a taxi from Epsom to sophies house.
Getting in my car and driving from sophies to mine.

The travel cost me:
£5.10 - Coach.
£5.40 - Train.
£10.00- Taxi.
£10.00 -Petrol.


No wonder i always run out of money.

So any way i got home about 11ish and called the guys to see where im meeting them, and guess what?
The photo shoot was canceled.

Im tired.
Im going to sleep.
Bad times. x

Ok so this weekend i attended the sheffield gathering which was awsome.
But today i am here to talk about what happened to me on the way home.

After the main chunk of my journey, after dropping off hatti, ivens and sophie, i eagerly continued my journey home down the M3 to get back to southampton because my band were playintg a show at 8 that evening.
About 5 miles before Fleet service station Kenny (My car) started pulling over to the right, i thought i was just tired and imagining things but then kenny started wobbling and i decided to pull over.
The wobbling was happeneing because i completly burst my tyre, it was a mess.

At this point i looked at my phone to call some one buti had NO CREDIT and my battery was in the red.

Luckily after about 30 mins one of my band mates called me to see where i was and he said that they were gunna play without me but then he will head out onto the M3 to find me. I said that i was past fleet services, then the battery ran out. I was hoping he heard what i said before it ran out.
I sat in my car playing on my DS, until about 30 mins later when the highway maintenence told me to not sit in my car and wait outside till my friends arrives.
This was annoying because it was FREEEZING out sideee.

So i stood still while minutes past, the minutes turned to half hours and then to hours.
I had to keep my self warm i spent alot of time jogging on the spot, practicing my dance moves and screaming at the top of my voice because i was in the middle of nowhere and the bridge i was under echoed alot, that was quite fun.
Im fairly good at keeping myself entertained soo the hours passed by quite swiftly.
At this point myu battery on my car ran out because my hazzard lights were on for soo long, and i didnt have a clue if bidds was coming or not because it has been soo long, also at this point it started getting reallly cold, i was starting to get realllly worried.

5 Hours later highway maintenence return and say if i dont move soon they are gunna charge me lots of money to have me removed and i said noo, i have a friend on his way ( Even though it only take an hour to get from southampton to fleet.)
The guy let me use his phone and i called bids to see where he was.
On the other end of the line he said he had returned home :( because he drove up and down the M3 between southampton and fleet 3 times and didnt see me.
I said to him that i was after fleet services, but we misunderstood each other, and he though i meant i had driven past fleet services and i was past there from londond way, where as i meant the other way around.
So he left again from his house in guilford and was there in like 30 mins, It was amazing to have some company after such a long time.
We called the AA from his phone and used his member ship card so we didnt have to pay, well that what we thought.
The AA guy arrived after 1hour and a half and said that i was definately not covered on bidd's card, but he was nice and said he would drive us to the nearest service station.


We got to the service station signed some papers ate a macdonalds and decided to leave the car there and drive back to bidds house because it was like 3.30 in the morning and we would see to the car in the morning.
It cost £8 to park there for 24 hours, but they give you back a £2 voucher for food in the service station :s it really annoyed me because i would much rather pay just £6.

This all happened on Monday night/ Tuesday morning, and Poor kenny is still stood in the service station waiting for me to rescue him.
Today i got new tyres which cost me £45 :( im going up there tonight to put them on.

I dont think i will be able to post my challeneges video until tomorow now because i have been trying to fix my car all day.

Love x x x

OK so some of you may know that i went to Ireland this weekend, which appears to have been a very good decision ^__^

It started of very badly because, my band were playing a show on the night of my flight, so i turned up to play the show knowing i had to be out of there by 8.30.
Its turns out that the band which were providing the back line had broken down in their tour van, so i had to just leave without playing otherwise i would have missed my flight.

I got to the airport with 1 minute to spare, they nearly shut the gate in my face, but i just sweet talked them ^__^ ( First time thats ever worked )
When i got to Ireland, the plan was that tom was going to phone me at 11.15, which didn't happen. I was stuck in the airport for about 2 hours wondering if i was going to be sleeping there, eventually i found an internet point that worked and THANK THE LORD FOR TWITTER.

Ohh and if you read this thank you to the people who got hold of tom for me. (Hatti <3 , Doug <3)

It turns out that tom couldn't ring me if i didn't have credit on my phone because we were in a different country.
But i managed to find my way to the city centre where i stumbled across 3 very drunk people by the names of Dave, Tom and drunken Stephen sat in burger king looking as though they had just given up on life.

After some very loud street walking from Stephen we found ourselves back at the hostel, which again was very loud and stephen like ^__^ we ate some pizza, bread and a little bit of pasta, ohh and if your tom, lot of stolen cheap rice krispies.
I Lots of towel whipping.
Comes to trying to sleep and Stephen is on the phone to various people, so i threw a shoe at his face and managed to chip his tooth.
I meann a shoe feel from the ceiling .......

Early wake as usual with these gathering malarkey's to shower before hand, time ticked on and it came to us being kicked out of our room by the cleaners, we left in a hurry.
In soo much of a hurry that 30 mins later i realised i left my wallet in the hostel.
Upon my return, my wallet was returned.
But i was shocked to find that all my money had been removed from my wallet.
They said that none of the staff had taken it when the guy behind the counter could not even look me in the eye.
He said we must have left the door open this morning and somebody must have snuck in and grabbed it. He tried to brush it off by saying
"ohh it happens all the time"
HAHA ok well if it happens all the time, why would any one come here EVER??
Great thing to tell your customers.

Soo after this, we head towards the gathering, and it had every quality of a good gathering, the slight awkwardness, the fan girls and the handing over of gifts.
Apart from it was PISSING IT DOWN WITH RAIN AND IRELAND IS THE WINDIEST PLACE ON EARTH. I had a very fun time meeting new people Karla is AWESOME and katy was really nice and kameron, omg it would take forever to name everyone, but yeah i met some amazing people.

After this we went home to stephens house where his lovely parents welcomed us in to their home and offered us food, which was very much appreciated.
We Then slept, and woke up mega early for a secret top mission secret that none of you guys can know about :)
But you will find out sooon enough.
In the famous words of tom milsoms t-shirt:
"Cliff hangers are....."
Love y'allllll

There are some amazing people out there.

Something a little crazy just happened to me and i am gunna share this with you.

I shall give you some background info to start off with. I once tried out for a band which went really well, but unfortunately my other band just started to take off (slightly) so i said the tryout band that i had to focus on my main band and i quit that one.

So when i moved to winchester, the guitarist from this band is working behind the till in my local shop, we start chatting and i forgot how nice he was, now every time i go to the shops we have a nice little chat about some day making the greatest hardcore band ever.

Ok now onto the story.
I was at home yesterday and i have no food what so ever my cupboards are empty, on top of this i have no money what so ever, i am minus in my account, i have less money that a homeless person.
At this point i hadn't eaten since the previous day and was mega hungry to the extent of having stomach pains.

I managed to get together 82p from finding 1p and 2p coins around the house.
So i took this over the shop to get some pasta.
This guy from the tryout band was working behind the till, and when i was paying for my pasta with my pennies, he asked:
"Are you seriously that skint" to which i replied
Then i left the shop and halfway down the road he ran out of the shop and shouted my name.
I though he was calling me back because he thought i had been shop lifting.
But i got back and he said.
"Look ian if you really are the low on funds, come into the shop get a couple of days worth of food and i will sort it out for you."
I thought he was joking, but he was deadly serious.
So i went back into the shop and i didn't wanna take the piss and just got some bread some pasta and some milk.
He got angry with me and said:
" Look ian don't feel bad, get a couple of days worth"
then he put like 2 cans of beans, some cheese, a bag of chips, some sweetcorn and some apples in my basket and took me to the checkout.

After paying for all of that for me, he said
"Please dont hesitate to ask if you need anything else, im here nearly everynnight bro."
I said thank you and walked home with a huge smile on my face, trying to workout what just happened.
When i got home i was unloading the shopping in the kitchen and as i was digging through the bag, not only was there a shit load of food, he put a £10 note in the bottom of the bag that he didn't even mention.
This actually brought a tear to my eye.
What a fucking legend.

P.S. I just looked over into the corner of my room and saw my Yoshi teddy and all i could see was its eyes and it scared the shit out of me hehe.

Much love
-Ian xXx
