The School Picnic

How many people do you take to a normal picnic ?1,2 or maybe 3 but the Pt England picnic had  over 600 people. There were so many people that  if you were in a plane would think we were a colony if fire ants roaming around . This is an annual thing but this year it was even bigger than all the other ones.

When we were aloud to play I ran to the bag full of balls and grabbed a soccer ball.I gathered people from around the park and asked if they wanted to play soccer.We finished the game not even knowing who won.

After that we sat down and ended up eating so much I think I put on a kg or 2.I had a peach two nectarines a plum and some chips.After that I just lay down and relaxed.

At the end of the day I was so exhausted but happy. Thank god its the week end I went home and played PlayStation.

Monday Mornings

I am learning to write an introduction that hooks in my audience. Here are 3 versions. Which Monday morning do you like best and why?

1. "Really, another Monday morning! Did you know I need about nine to ten hours of sleep each night? So be quiet alarm" I think as I hit the snooze button. "Beep Beep" it goes again. "Fine, I'll get up this time." Entering the living room every one just stopped and stared. I hate Monday mornings

2. “Beep beep beep” went the alarm. I woke  up and put on my uniform. With my eyes still half closed I went down stairs and started munching on my weet-bix. I don't like Monday mornings

3. "Oh my gosh, could you be any louder?" I thought about my alarm. Literally still half asleep I went down stairs. Trying to aim into the bowl, I poured  my cereal and completely missed it. Oh man, another Monday morning.

I like capsicum
But I dont like salad

I like gumboots
But I dont like mud

I like sports
But I dont like losing

I like strawberries

The Holiday

“Bring your boxes down” I ran down stairs and put my boxes in the garage. “Can you help me I need to pack the car” “why” I replied “because were moving”” OOOOHHH thats right”.

“Dad when is the truck going to get here” “I dont know” he replied as the truck came up the drive I shouted “dad the truck is here”. Finally they got out of the truck and got straight to work. I wached them chuck the couches of the deck to the other people on the truck.When they got about half way another truck came and three more men jumped out to come and help.

They drove to my new house and unloaded the truck, I felt so exhausted I jumped on the couch and watched TV.
