Sod Off

‘Rebel Yell' - Billy Idol

I got a phone call from a local kid called Trevor (Kier’s ex or something). He wants a fight with me! I told him to sod off. I don’t even know him, the gayboy. Sounds like Keir's been stirring...

This time 7 years ago:
‘Watched Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet (Part One) at Aunty Vi’s.’

This time 2 years ago:
‘We have finally left West Yorkshire and moved to Norfolk or Cambridgeshire, or wherever this is. We live in The King Arthur pub on Walton Highway in West Walton, near Wisbech. It’s crap here. It’s the middle of nowhere. Right out in the bloody country. I hate it. I miss my friends and my family (especially the Winterfoods and my Dad and Paul) and I’m sick of moving all the time.’

This time last year:
‘I think the greatest mistake of my life is 'celebrated' today – moving to East Anglia. I still wish we’d never left Yorkshire.’
