Okaaaay, so I know I said I was going to be away for a while, but honestly, I miss you blogging people! And I’ve had a pretty exciting day, so I thought I’d share that with you, and I couldn’t blog without an outfit, so that came along too!
So apparently I actually like the colour-blocking trend going on at the moment, I think it’s more to do with the fact that I already have a load of skinny jeans in every colour of the rainbow (except orange…I want orange) so I don’t have to spend more money to do it, YES!
Ok, so now for my exciting day story, probably why my typing sounds excitable and hyper…I think I’m on an adrenaline high! So I went to hand in my essay (YES I FINISHED IT!!…sorry about that!), all 4600 words of it (I talk too much, I hope they don’t realise it’s a little over the word count!), and apparently my Turnitin thing wasn’t right, blah blah blah, eventually handed it etc. Main part of the story: I was walking back to the bus and I saw this HUGE black cloud like billowing into the blue sky, and I’m thinking, well that’s a funny rain cloud. So I rang Ben at work, told him to find out what was going on on the internet. Here is some ‘black cloud’:
Anyway, he tells me there’s a ‘huge fire’ in Newcastle. I’m like, oh dear, but that’s kind of exciting. Waiting for the bus, he rings me to tell me my bus is stopping half way because of the fire, so we were driving along on the bus, get down to the Quayside and WOW that black cloud is huge!! And oh my goodness, that cloud is on my house….
(Insanely brave fireman above) Turned out my stop was the turning round point, and it’s next to my house, and right behind it is this huge black cloud of smoke, so I walk round the corner, and there it is, Byker’s scrapyard in Newcastle is on fire, there were at least 12 fire engines. So I stood and watched, went home and got my camera for pictures. Seriously, this is the view from outside my house, that’s how close it is (it’s still going now, 4 hours later and they expect it to be going overnight):
So anyway, I stood and watched for about an hour and a half, and this woman asked me if I live close, when I said yes she grabbed me and made me do a LIVE radio interview from BBC Radio Newcastle!! It was crazy!! As soon as I can I’ll post it up for you, then you can all hear my voice for the first time!! So that’s my crazy day =D If you’re interested in more fire photos, I have loads on my Flickr.
