News Crews and Libraries

today I had the tv crew come round. My mum is doing the bit for Channel 4 and they wanted a family as well, so we got dragged into it.

Lucky us!

So I spent most of the day with that, which was quite fun. they filmed me blogging - my earlier post, they were filming me whilst I did it!

Then they filmed my brother baking shortbread, with my dad. Then they filmed my other brother making stuff. Then they had a quick interview with my mum and then they filmed us getting books out of the library. Which was fun.

So, an eventful day, but a good one. A lot more interesting than school!

Its meant to be on the tv on Wednesday, on Channel 4 News. I think its about 7pm.

kayaking lessons - 2

On Friday I went to my second kayaking lesson.

This time we learnt how to go backwards and to my horror we did a capsize test. In other words we had to fall in on purpose.

Which wasn't fun but at least I had a wet suit on.

Bowling, forks and animal parks

Sorry I've not posted for a couple of days but lots of stuff has been happening.

Now then ...Three days ago I went bowling with some friends. We played over three games.

First game I WON !!! Second game I came in fourth #sigh# Third game I WON!!!

Later when I got home my brothers forced me to help them dig a hole in the garden. Now we were jumping from one part of the hole to another.

(you can see where this is going can't you?)

I am not going into details about what happened but we ended up with garden fork hitting my five year old brother's foot... so now he has a hole in his foot.

The day after that we had to look after him.

Yesterday we whent to Godstone farm with the home ed group. We got see the animals, go on a tractor ride and play in the park there which was all fun.

Kayaking Lessons

On Friday I started Kayaking lessons. To my surprise I was actually slightly good.

Luckily enough I didn't fall in, despite the fact that a ton of other people did.

So far I've learnt how to control my kayak, and that water polo is extremely difficult! I've also learnt how to go round and round in circles.

No - seriously - I was MEANT to be learning that!

I'm going to be doing it for five weeks and hopefully I will be able to get my certificate by then, and if not, I hope I don't have to go through it all again.

My holiday in Disneyland

We've just come back from holiday in Euro Disney.

My Dad got on really well with Goofy!

It was really fun but the train journey there was a bit boring. We went from Waterloo International because my Dad promised my train-mad brother that we would go on the fast line from Waterloo which meant the journey was even longer and therefore a bit more boring.

Oh well, it was worth it though.

When we first got there my youngest brother - almost, not including my baby brother - was really excited when he first saw it cos he'd never been before. It was the look on his face, it just made me happy as well. My first smile at Disneyland.

I really enjoyed my stay and I also went on my first proper rollercoaster - the Aerosmith Rock 'n' Roller coaster, and it was well fun! It went upside down a few times, did a number of corkscrews and it was REALLY LOUD.

One evening I went out to the Disney village with my Dad - and I managed to get a couple of cheeky comments in as well - and it was good to have a bit of time without my slightly annoying brothers. Please note, slightly annoying is the understatement of the century!

I've got a ton of photos and if I can, and I nag Mum enough, I will get some of them on the blog.

Welcome to my blog

To tell you abit about me, I like Dr Who, sailing, listening to music, reading, and winding my Dad up.
