21st February 1987

We went to Basingstoke today. It took ages to get into the centre and find the shops – but we did eventually. There were just the usual shops in a nasty shopping centre. I tried to find a nice black dress – I tried on a nice sort of long jacket and skirt one – but it wasn’t really my sort of style and it seemed a bit much just to wear it a few times – £20. I spent the whole day traipsing round trying on loads of stuff but I couldn’t find anything. I bought a man’s black dress jacket for £4 which was in the Sue Ryder shop. It’s really nice. I expect I’ll end up just getting a bowtie and wearing that. Hilary is dead weird – she looks just like one of the men off Home Sweet Home , she’s really young and says all the wrong things, like talking about school and her school friends when me and M are with her and Alice. She is quite sweet though. They bought this hair mousse stuff to colour their hair and tried to colour it. Hilary’s looked a bit darker but Alice’s just stayed the same. I’m watching a James Dean film at the moment, Giant, it goes on till 1, so I don’t know if I’ll see it all. I wish Rebel Without a Cause was on, I’d love to see that!

19th February 1987

On Monday me and Emma are going to Edwards No 8 nightclub. Helen’s sister’s best friend  – Suzy – is having a party there – but they open it to the public as well. Hopefuly Helen will be able to scrounge some tickets from somewhere for us – otherwiwe we’ll have to pay on the door and it might be more difficult for us to get in. We should be allright though. I’ve just been trying on all my clothes to find something that looks nice and old and ‘sexy’. I think I’ll wear my red skirt and white shirt and waistcoat, and, if I can get one, a red dicky bow! I’ve GOT to see Andy tomorrow – and I’ll ask him if he’s going and make it clear I’m going so he can go etc etc etc! It’ll probably turn out he’s going away for the hols or something. Half term tomorrow – ACE! I don’t know if anyone’s doing anything special after school – I’ve got to get some stuff from the optician’s so I’ll have to go into town, but I don’t want to have my lunch there cos of money! I don’t think I’ve got very much left – I’ll have to be more careful with it. Me and Kati went up the chippy again at lunch, I’m getting on to 3 a day now, but Kati owes me 2 so I’m ok for fags. I used to be just 1 a day – its really going up!
