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!😋

 For dessert we had christmas pudding and christmas cake. It was delectable.

This christmas was absolutely brilliant!

Many thanks for everything you got me. I love everything.

Ecstatic Christmas Eve

Before dinner we went out to Manchester and took a tram to Didsbury Village (Middle Didsbury).

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 my main course was a celeriac with salad, which was the best I’d tasted.

Our shared sides were, chips, carrots and red cabbage.

After that, for desserts I had some Eccles cake with vanilla Ice cream, parkin and butterscotch with vanilla ice cream and christmas pudding.

 All of it was delicious and I would love to go back, everything was really nice.

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.

Last Week Of December

My favourite present altogether was probably the Maze Ball, because I was playing with it for a long time every day. I enjoyed playing with everything it kept me busy all the time! I spent quite a long time reading my new books and my favourite is Tom Gates Excellent Excuses.
