It went wll for a long time and I made it through to the third round when I played giants that I thought were 16 let alone 12 turning 13.

I played hard but they really needed tall(er) goalkeepers. But I loved what I’ve learnt.

I even got to stand up in assembly!!! 😉

April 16   My Amazing Race

Posted by


This was the theme to my birthday party this year. When Jessica had her party when she was 12 I was inspired to have mine as soon as possible. So on Saturday after it was postponed because of the moon being in the wrong place the turn out was a little sad with it being 7 people to come and 20 invited… Even Tamlin couldn’t come! L

This blog post will be too long if I tell you everything that we did but I’ll tell you about my favourites. We built kites instead of making sandcastles. We walked to Just Nuisance and did a couple of activities there. We walked to quite a few places and did 10 RaodBlocks. We finished on a submarine and it was very close but we came second which if you know me is DEVISTATING!!! But we went back to the hall and we ate the most delicious foods from all over the world, which were all made by Miranda except for South Africa, which was KoekSisters but everything else. Like the pizza from Italy, Jam Tarts from England, Spring Rolls from Hong Kong, Sushi (made by Jessica and eaten all by Luke) from Japan, Quiche from France, mini hamburgers from USA, samusas from India, Nachos from Mexico and I’m sure I’m missing a few. From the people that came I got

Money (The number will be left to the imagination but a clue is that three people gave money and not shocker is that two of them were boys DUH)

Two chocolate

Bath Salts

Two bath cream things

Slippers that unfortunately don’t fit

The cake was Miranda’s first circular cake with it being vanilla with chocolate fudge sauce to bind with the most amazing icing and she made Tamsyn’s Purple Planet and I was on top doing a handstand

Everyone together now AWWWW!!!

This has now concluded my birthday there is no more opportunity to milk it but there’s still next year ; )

Just thought everyone should now that I tried my best at trails fell on my knees (which now look like a war scene) but did infact make it through to the next round! YAY!

Today I am going back to school after my two week Easter holiday. I thought that the holiday could’ve been one week long and seeing as on the second to last day it was Easter it wasn’t really and EASTER holiday. My first day was quite a success there really wasn’t much to report. It was average we had prefect photos and normal soccer breaks. There was a lovely little success of that day though. And by ‘little’ I mean HUGELY AWESOME success of that day. Out of all my netball team (which is at least enough to make a C team) I was chosen to go to WP trails. Another girl was chosen aswel but that’s it. Just us two!

YAY!!! Seeing as my first netball practise went well and left me a stiff piece of useless I am nervous and excited. I should have my WP trails by Tuesday latest.

The week so far has been going really well and I hope the term will work out aswel.

The trails are on Friday so wish me luck!

We’ve been walking for days now. There seems to be no end in site. I was starting to loose faith and I was afraid we were going t turn against each other.

But then I saw it. The luminescent sign was bright compared to the other mall advertisements. It read:

Long Beach Pet Shop

I knew we were all excited. All of us except for Andrew. He didn’t say it but you could see it in his eyes. He wanted out. Didn’t want the responsibility. But it was too late for that. We’d come too far. Gone through too much. We walked to the back of the shop and stared. They were big, small. So many different shapes and sizes. It was the moment of truth. It took us long. Maybe too long. People came and went choosing theirs. We stood and contemplated until finally we decided on four.

Yes four. It was slow motion as the man came to take them out for us. We bought some extras to make them feel at home. Was I becoming weak in front of the team, who knows? All I knew is that my life would never be the same… How could it be the same? Aliens were entering our home base becoming one of us. It was strangely exciting. On the way home we were silent but not for long we were bursting with ideas. We were going to name them. Maybe I was becoming a softy. I knew naming them would make me become attached  and yet we named them anyway. Willow the elegant one, Ebony the one with the ‘afro’, Opal the big one and Topaz the one that was freakin’ out.

I got fish. Proper goldfish. Ebony is back (NO?), Willow was so chilled and very elegant and the shape of  a willow leaf (REALLY?), Opal was the biggest and opal coloured (SHOCKER!) and Topaz is topaz coloured (MINDBLOWING).

In the time it has taken me to write and post this bogpost two o my fish have died and all four have been ill. At first Willow was resting at the bottom of the tank and only coming up to eat. I woke up after two days of this and Willow was dead. Opal was showing the same symptoms so we spent whole day researching goldfish diseases. Apparently goldfish can live up to 20 years and goldfish hardly ever get sick (Ya right tell that to Willow, Opal, Topaz and Ebony). Nothing, We established that they had clamped fins but that was it. So we went to the Aquarium Shop  where the man was extremely helpful. He told us that it was because we hadn’t got our filter working and we never soaked the gravel in the aquarium. So he gave us medicine and a filter. We got everything sorted and put them into a very very clean tank. They were looking good but then Topaz   got these strange red markings all over her body and we noticed Ebony started showing signs of Ick. We went back to the Aquarium Shop and again the guy was amazing. He told us something about Ammonia we got some aquarium salt and more medicine. They all had Ick by the time we got back. We gave them the medicine and they were looking better. But unfortunately Opal didn’t make it. We ow have two little graves outside our house.
