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.

    What a good idea to go around the area of the author to see what inspired him in his stories,even better for you that you love the books.

    Wow, it looks like Christmas morning seeing all of those presents.! 🙂

    I love looking at your photos and reading what you’ve written, you describe everything really well. The helter skelter does look very high and your cake very scrumptious. It sounds like you had a very exciting birthday, I think I would enjoy the Roald Dahl museum, it’s interesting hearing what inspired some of his stories.

    Glad you enjoyed your birthday. I look forward to seeing more photos next time I see you all which I hope will be soon.

    Lots of love,

    Grandma xxxx

    Looks like you had so much fun on your birthday Dillon! Did you see the beach at Milton Keynes too? We go there sometimes and Scarlett likes playing in the sand. Can’t wait to visit the Road Dahl museum, it looks great! Xxx
