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.

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.

 

Star Wars Identities the Exhibition the O2

We went to London for STAR WARS IDENTITIES THE EXHIBITION at the O2 in London.

The O2

We had to wear a wristband and a headset. The wristband was so we could find out which Star Wars hero we related to the most; I was an Ewok and I chose to fight for the light side. Georgia was also an Ewok fighting as a bounty hunter for the light side. The headset was so we could listen to facts about Star Wars and some extracts. I really enjoyed the exhibition and looking at different designs of things and people from the past. There were also some models that had been used in the films and some costumes worn by the actors. There were also really cool pictures outside.

Afterwards, we went for delicious bagels from Beigel Bake. It had on pickles and salt beef with mustard.
