I haven’t seen these guys for a loooooong time…

Hello everyone! Today I found a box in my brother’s bedroom that hadn’t been opened since we moved house in October 2014. I took off the lid and peeped inside… And there were my old pals!

My Grandma is really good at knitting, and when I was little she used to knit loads of things for me and my brother.  I found some of them in the box today:


Pinky, Jeff, Emily, Bella, Bumble and Charlotte the little baby

Emily is quite a lot bigger than the rest of them! (By the way, Bumble is the little orange teddy bear.)

I never really played with Jeff or Bumble. Pinky, Emily, Charlotte and Bella are the original squad! I used to pretend that Bella, Charlotte and Emily were sisters who survived the Titanic (did I ever mention that I am slightly obsessed with Titanic?)

Comment if you want a photostory on the Titanic starring the sisters! 🙂

War Horse

Hello everyone! I have the week off school because it is the half-term holidays, so today my mum and I decide to watch ‘War Horse’. Don’t worry, this post doesn’t contain spoilers! We have both read the book by Michael Morpurgo (which is amazing by the way), and so we were really looking forward to the film.

It definitely didn’t disappoint! It was full of action, and a LOT of sadness and death, but that was what World War 1 was like. I don’t know how I made it to the end without crying! I was thinking of posting ‘War Horse – Sylvanian style’, but it would be a bit too violent for their peaceful village…

…And I don’t have a Sylvanian Families horse!

So, what films do you love? Leave a comment…

Lent is here!

Hello everyone! As many of you will know, Lent started on Wednesday. Lent is the period before Easter, and lots of Christians give things up during Lent…


Mr. Buttercup is giving up sugar in his tea! Good luck Mr. Buttercup! 🙂

Tell me in the comments what you are giving up!

Jessica’s Diary

Dear diary,

As I write this, I am sitting at the desk in the orphanage watching everyone else playing duck, duck, goose. I would quite like to join in, but I am determined to start a diary.


Today I went to the park with Ron to play football, but I put on my sports clothes so that my dress didn’t get muddy. I didn’t want to play at first, but it was so freezing just standing still and I just needed to warm up!

When we came back to the orphanage lovely Mrs. Buttercup had prepared us a mug of hot chocolate each. Little Gerard insisted that he had extra cream and sprinkles, the cheeky little monster! I love him though, I can easily make him giggle by reading his favourite book and doing silly voices. 🙂
