Diary Excerpt: Daisy Chains

May, some years ago, Age 9

Today, we played outside ‘cos it’s Sunday. I made a daisy chain but R ruined it. Well, it doesn’t matter. Had dinner. For lunch we had noodles. Went swimming. I think I might be moved up in swimming. Anyway when we tucked R into bed, he started coughing and was sick. Mummy thinks he may have caught a bug. Hey, it’s bank holiday Monday tomorrow. Wonder what it will be like.

Diary Excerpt: Puppet Plays

April, some years ago, Age 9

Today, we got to watch Miss Jamieson’s class do their puppet plays! We have to do ours as well, next week. Ours is called ‘the wild dog chase’. I’m going to have dinner soon.
