Hi,

This is quite big I feel and worth sharing as whilst it's on the website, I spotted it initially in the national newspaper itself:

There's a goodun!

Cheers,

Jem.

i don't think they could get away with mentioning suicides in context.

hmmm wish my school was like that. Its usually me in the corner on my own :'(
and everybody says that i'm showing off.
maybe it's because the only shop that sells diabolos only sells £1 plastic diabolos that break really easily (actually once this girl came to school proud with her £1 neon pink diabolo and i threw it up very high and missed :-| and it shattered!)
anyway good to see diabolo getting some press
