My Buttony Birthday – 2019

On my birthday, when I woke up I ate a delicious breakfast of a baked peanut butter pancake. I loved it.

Afterwards, I opened my present and got a lot of amazing things. Here are just a few of my favourites.

  1. A new pair of headphones
  2. Some fun games such as ColourBrain (You have 11 colour cards and have to answer a question with 1 or more colour cards. An example question would be ‘What colour is the lid of  a Marmite jar?’or ‘What colour is Mace Windu’s lightsaber in Star Wars’)
  3. LEGO sets such as a Forklift and Tow truck
  4. Sphero Chariot (For information about a Sphero click here) (A sphero chariot is a car for a sphero to drive.)
  5. Lots of exciting books such as My Cousin is a Time Traveller and The Train to Impossible Places

Then we went to the train station to take a train to Sheffield, unluckily for us, the train we were supposed to be on was cancelled because of the extremely high temperature. It was the highest recorded temperature in the UK.

We went and had a drink in the bar next door, whilst playing a game of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Top Trumps that I got for my birthday.

When we arrived in Sheffield, we went to the National Videogame Museum (NVM). It was the Summer of Buttons. The Summer of Buttons is where there’s a workshop on how to make a button, (like a controller for a video game) and other button themed things like a 4-player Pac-Man.

They had loads of old arcade games and some newer modern games. It was a brilliant place. I got to play Miss Pac-man, which is the same as normal Pac-man but Pac-man is a woman and has a bow on her head. I also got to play Donkey Kong and the original Tetris! I loved the NVM and want to go back.

Then we went to Tamatanga which is an indian restaurant. I had lots of small dishes that tasted very nice and were new to me. My favourite dishes were the prawn tempura and the Gunpowder Paneer. I also had a pistachio lassi to drink. It was unusual and very tasty.

When we got back I saw my amazing cake. It was a Minecraft cake.(For a blog about Minecraft click here.) It had a pig, creeper and lots of TNT. A creeper is what Notch(the developer of Minecraft) accidentally created when trying to make a pig. They run towards you, sizzle then blow up in  your face if you don’t kill it fast enough. It was an extremely tasty cake! Probably the best I’ve ever seen and eaten!🎂😋

II had an amazing birthday and loved every minute of it.

Afterwards we went to a place called Conkers which is an enormous country park with loads of activities, walks and trails to do!

There was even a high ropes course with a climbing wall, a descender (where you step off the edge of a platform with a length of wire holding you and you go down really fast and slow at the last second.) and a giant zip wire 110 m long. It was brilliant!

There were also den making areas and a 4D cinema. Next, we went to Five Guys and had some burgers. They were really tasty. Then we went home, and I had a magic smarties cake with a bag suspended in mid-air and smarties pouring out.

I really enjoyed my birthday and if you bought me a present thank you again.

Blue Peter – Diamond Badge

A few months ago, I downloaded a form to get a blue peter badge, the Diamond Badge. This badge was made for the Blue Peter 60th birthday and is a rare limited edition badge. I managed to get one and it looks really special.

To get the badge I had to say I had:

 

Done something different in 2018 (I did kayaking)

Inspire others ( I inspired Georgia to write more stories)

Amazing experience ( I had an amazing experience at Condover)

Memory Mission ( Daddy remembered making Tracey Island from Thunder Birds)

Others I’ve helped ( I have helped lots of people at school with their Maths)

New Blue Peter fans ( Mummy is someone I shared my Blue Peter love with)

Design your own diamond badge (I can’t remember what this looked like but I did it)

 

This badge is the most special badge I have ever received and I will enjoy wearing it.

 

My Terrific Tenth Birthday

After I’d opened my presents , we went to Milton Keynes and I went on a Helter-Skelter, which was quite high.

It was really fun. Then we went to YO Sushi for dinner, I really enjoyed grabbing food from the conveyor belts.

After that, we went to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden. I had a quiz to do and there were chocolate doors into the Solo gallery, where you can find out about his childhood.

In the story centre, I made my own movie with figurines. In the Upper Babbling room, which is a craft room, I made a snail in a jar. Afterwards we did the village and countryside trails, the countryside trail through the woods and through a field was amazing, there were grasshoppers everywhere. It was very relaxing!

The woods were the ones that inspired Fantastic Mr Fox, The Minpins and Danny the Champion of the World. Along the high street were some old-fashioned pumps that inspired Danny the champion of the World The library inspired Matilda and the crown house Sophie’s “norphanage”. We also went and looked at Roald Dahl’s grave.

When we had finished the trails we went to the Black Horse for tea, I had a delumptiosly, scrumdiddlyumptious pheasant and mushroom pie.😋

Back home, I was shown my scrumdiddlyumptious IRN BRU cake🎂, it was the best cake🍰 I’d ever had!!

Thanks for all your presents, I loved them all! Hope to see you all again soon.

Leeds

In the Easter holidays I went to Leeds for a week, we stayed in a nice house. Then we went to BrewDog for tea and had Red’s barbecued food. I love Red’s.

On the first day we went to Roundhay Park.

There is a Tropical World, where you can see animals from all over the world. IT WAS AMAZING!!!! They also have a fun maze.

Then we went and had tea in an Indian restaurant called Bundobust and I had a nice drink I’d never heard of before called Chai.

My favourite bit of food was the okra fries, they look a bit like green chillies and were really delicious.

Then we went shopping, I got some clothes and Lego.

On the second day I played Monopoly for most of the day then I went to Nando’s with my Grandad, Mummy, Daddy and Georgia. Afterwards, I went to the cinema to watch the hilarious film of Beauty and the Beast.

 

The next day I was super happy because we went bowling and I won with 92 points! (I did have the bumpers up.) 🙂 😉

Then we went to the arcade and I got lots of prizes, played a game of air hockey, played Mario Kart together and spent ages on the two pence machines and me and Daddy won a red shoe.

I really enjoyed my time in Leeds and would love to go again.

My Crackery Christmas Day 2016

When I woke up in the morning I felt a tinge of excitement! It was Christmas Day and I had a stocking full of presents, with an extra one next to it. I opened the big one first and it was a Star Wars bin, my other presents were: a Star Wars light-up light saber, pirate badges, rubbers, a game where you have to put facial hair on a man using a magnetic stylus and loads of other cool stuff.

For breakfast we had a special christmas porridge, it was delicious!

Then, I got my presents off mummy and daddy, my favourite things were: a potato clock, books, a 3 in 1 set of Lego, a card game called Boggle Slam, where you have to change a word one letter at a time until you run out of cards.

After that, we had our traditional Christmas dinner (smoked salmon and watercress salad, which had orange in)

Afterwards, we went to grandma’s house for tea. My Auntie Lisa, Uncle Ryan and cousin Scarlett were already there. I got some more really good stuff like a Star Wars movie projector and star wars battle ships. I’m really bad at it.

Finally, we had Christmas tea, which was roast turkey, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, carrots, sprouts, parsnips and stuffing. I really liked it!😋

When we arrived I saw we were outside Solita, but then we went to it’s next door neighbour Hispi (a type of cabbage and a restaurant) I had apple juice and Ginger beer, whilst I looked at the menu. For starters I had a spiced pork and pistachio terrine, orange jelly and fruit bread, which was delicious.

Then we took the tram back to manchester and went to Brewdog. There was unlimited pinball. I had loads of goes but I’m really bad at it but it is really fun.

When we got back home I got a book and some new pyjamas. Then we watched the Simpsons, The Snowman and The Snowman and The Snowdog, whilst having my Malteser Teaser reindeer and a cadbury chocolate snowball. I can’t wait for Christmas morning.

Amazing Advent Calendars

On December 1st I got an enormous surprise because guess what, I had two advent calendars waiting for me, one was a Maltesers one and the other a LEGO Star Wars advent calendar.

The LEGO Star Wars one had cool gifts in for example a white Wookiee, my favourite, Luke Skywalker, ships and loads more really cool stuff. I really enjoyed opening them, it was even better than my lego one last year.
