Today was a very traumatic day. At recess I caught Andy as he was coming into German, and asked him if he wanted to go to the cinema on Saturday. He seemed a bit shocked and surprised and said he’d think about it and see me at lunchtime. But I didn’t see him, so I phoned him, and he said he’d go as friends, but he’d be afraid he’s do something stupid – presumably getting off with me although I wouldn’t think that stupid!! So we worked out that he’d go if other people would go. I phoned Jo then and her and Richie are going on SAturday to see Crocodile Dundee but in Solihull, which is a pain, so what I thought was I could meet Andy at Moor St and go to Solihull, where Richard could pick us up in his car and drive us to the cinema – where seeing as it’s two couples and Jo and Rich will be “friendly” Andy may take the hint!!! I don’t really know. I arranged to meet Andy in the girls’ school about half one, but they’re not staying till then, it’s a 12.30 day for some reason, so I’ll have to see him in the morning and tell him to speak to Richard about the plans. I’m meeting Monica in town at 8.15 as well – so maybe we’ll see him than, hopefully anyway!! I’m in a good mood, things are finally getting going!!!
