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.

Ooshies Review Fred’s Box

Fred’s Box / Ooshies

A Ooshie is squishy figurine that can also serve as pencil topper. Ooshie’s can be wrestlers, DC Superheroes and so much more! Some Ooshie’s glow in the dark. I got the wrestlers:

Randy Orton (glow in the dark),  Jey Osu,  Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns. These are all of the other wrestlers.

other Ooshies

Ooshie’s feel nice in your hands and are a bit sticky at first. If you want Ooshie’s but don’t want the same one more than once, visit Fred’s Box. I love Ooshie’s and would recommend them to everyone!!! 10/10 stars.

 

YOUR FAVOURITE CHARACTERS JUST GOT OOSHED!!!!

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.

Film Recommendations

My top 3 films so far this year are: The Lego Batman movie, Rogue One and Sing.

1.The Lego Batman movie is number 1 for all lego / batman fans and hilarious.
I give this film 5 stars out of 5!

2. Rogue One, the best star wars film yet the young Jyn Erso finds her dad has turned to the dark side…
I give this film 4 stars out of 5.

Rogue One

3. Sing is excellent for music and animal fans. There’s a disaster but, it manages to be sorted out…
I give this film 2 stars out of 5.

On this you had to drive around in fiat mini cars with pedals, the right pedal makes you go faster and the left slower, there were speed cameras, traffic lights and a garage.

Vikings’ River Splash

This was the water rapids ride, we got soaked!

The Dragon

This was my personal favourite, it’s a rollercoaster that goes through some rooms in a castle with a dragon and a wizard and lots of other stuff, then it exits the building and goes sideways and through the trees.

These were some of the other rides.
