Summer Holiday highlights

Hello everyone! This blog post is a post full of LISTS! I know how much you all like lists, so most of this post is just lists – all of them explaining about my holiday.

Top five new things I did:
1. Sail – I did a four-day sailing course with Josh during the summer and I got a level one RYA youth certificate.
2. Cook scallops – I bought a mini frying pan from John Lewis and I have been cooking lots of things like quails eggs and
scallops in it
3. Make daisy chains? – Mum taught me (she was horrified when she found out I didn’t already know how to make one!)
4. Made a pasta collage at Polly’s house – same explanation as above
5. Hoovering Polly’s flats – I earned £1 and free lunch for my efforts

New places I went to (Not in any order):
• Dartmouth – Short holiday with Granny Devon and Dad
• Oxford – Family outing to the Discovering Tutankhamun exhibition at the Ashmolean museum

    What a busy holiday.
    Tell Polly you are worth more than £1 if you did a good job.
    Excellent SATS results. Granny is very very proud and will be thinking of you tomorrow. Hope all goes well.
