First I went to the cinema and saw Rise of the Gardians. Then I went home and watched the second half of Lord of the Rings. Soon I will watch a bunch of peoplesing Auld Lang Syne whilst fireworks sparkle around the london eye.
This means I have spents the whole of New Years Eve watching telly.
Happy New Year!
Today we went ice skating at Hestercombe, we may skate at John Lewis at some point , but Hestercombe has advantages over John Lewis:
- Hestercombe is wax, but John Lewis is ice, OK for experienced skaters, but for us novices you can get very wet. I fell over so much in the first few minutes I spent more times sitting on the ice than I did skating! If that was wet I would be soaked right now!
- John Lewis is full of people who can acctually skate, when you’re on a rink and you’re slipping and sliding like bambi in this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSh1eLrxiqs the last thing you want is a load of people skating past you making it look like it’s the easiest thing in the world and you’re just some clumsy elephant.
- John Lewis has plastic seals to help you round the rink, (kind of like those push along dogs and horses babies use when they’re learning to walk) the seals cost money and are only for under 5s. Hestercombe just puts theses wooden penguins out and anybody can use them, though don’t muck about and pretend to dance with them, they fall over if used from the front, and they try to bring you down on top of them. If you over balance you can impale yourself on one of those skiing thingies they have to help them move smoothly and die a lonely painful death, while your blood taits the ice bright red and your intestines leak out is a really discusting way.
I actually ended up learning to skate better than my family.
Whoo hoo! Yeah!

I am the proud owner of a £20.00 Amazon voucher! Uncle Percy gave it to me for Christmas, he got the boys both rockets, I was a bit worried as James opened his gift Uncle Percy described it as “Something dangerous, I mean you could kill your brother”
I was expecting an air rifle or BB gun, but it was just a rocket, so we had to travel all the way to the windmill to test it. luckily I brought a book, a tube of smarties and a geo bug, there’s supposed to be a geo cache up there, we traced it to a big square rock made of stone cemented together. But I’ve checked every crack and crevice, I’ve done everything short of giving it a once over with my metal detector, my theory is that somebody took it home as a joke! They probably look like this: 😈
Anyways I’ll probably buy books with my voucher, because I love reading.
But I have news for all those teachers out there: reading isn’t all great. Books can isolate you, because you can’t socialize, I can socialize I’m just too busy reading! To all you kids out there though, don’t worry, when you lose your friends you won’t mind half as much as you think you will, you’ll be to busy reading!
Anyone who likes historical fiction should try Caroline Lawrence. I’m a bit upset because I know I’ve only got two more books to go and I’ve finished the Roman Mysteries series, 😥 but don’t despair! There’s still the Flavian Trilogy and the Roman Mysteries Scrolls! 😀
Today we went to Nanna and Grandads house. They gave us all Christmas presents and I got a game of trivia pursuit. Unfortunately everytime James saw an italic h he thought it was a b so we had Edward scissorbands and winnie the poob! LOL!
Today Aunty Carrie, Aunty Jolene and Grandad came round. Grandad had a go at fixing my sewing machine, even he knew I was dying of boredom, but he sh0wed me how to fix it, and I must have learnt something inbetween reading my book, because I just did it again, before I realised that the needle had snapped. Who knew it was so fragile, luckily I have some spares!
I got loads of presents this morning (We always have more presents on Boxing Day, half on Christmas, half on Boxing day.) Some books, more Rollos and a toy aardvark called Archie. He came with a code you can enter into a website called: Webkins. It’s not very good. It only lasts a year and all you can do is buy stuff of earn Webkins cash in an arcade. It’s a bit wierd because it’s a cute and fuzzy game, but your gambling! Like ‘make a wish’ you drop in a coin and objects float to the surface, some of these objects are wishing wells, you win a fiver for each of these, some of these objects are fruit, if you get, say two strawberries in a row you win some Webkins money, three cherries, even more money, three wishing wells in a row = Ca ching! You get like £1000 or a gift. There are some games too, some are pretty fun but, meh.
Aunty Jolene finally met Swiss. The thing is Swiss is a ragdoll, like she looks like this:
And she’s the size of a large cow. Though apparently her fur makes her look fat, ‘yeah’! The thing is James always says Aunty Jolene’s cat is fat, so when she sees his cat, she makes fun of it. Though to be fair, Swiss has got really long fur, whereas Aunty Jolene’s massive cat has short hair. Hmm… 😉
We wish you a merry christmas! I was woken up at the crack of dawn by Dad. We had to go to church. Afterwards we got to the important stuff.
I got loads of books, loads of sweets, loads of materials, a soft toy rabbit called Harriet, lots of DVDs, some cookery stuff and a sewing machine! I gave Mum and Dad keyrings made with my glow in the dark clay, that way they won’t lose their keys in the dark! Mum got a cat (because she likes them) and Dad got a crocodile (because he likes them.) I hid them behind the tree yesterday. I got a bit panicked when Mum said there were no presents there! Shock horror, had they been eaten by a cat? Swallowed by a vaccum cleaner? Stolen by a burglar?!! (OK probably not, it was hard enough for me to get behind there without breaking the glass decorations, an adult would have no chance!)
Luckily they were still there, Mum just hadn’t looked properly! 😀
We had a delicios Christmas breakfast of spaggetti and/or beans, vegetarian bacon (also known as facon! 🙂 ) and mushrooms and waffles (at least I think they were waffles, it’s hard to tell when you only have them once a year. 😉 )
Then we went on a walk to the levels.
We got home and I helped make tea. Mum bribbed me into eating a sprout using Yorkshire pudding!
L 😀 L
I’ve been using a lot of smileys lately haven’t I?!!
Here’s one you don’t often see:
