Hi everyone! Everyone in my class needs to do a post on their blog or wikispaces about what they done during the break off school. It snowed for ages so the school was off. I am starting from the 1st Tuesday as I cant remember what I done the 1st Monday.
My Winter Report
Today men were due to come in from Glasgow to put new windows in my house. This was because the windows that were in my house at the time were quite old and drafty.The men didnt make it because the roads were really icy in Glasgow (and Falkirk). I was glad because if the men had came then I would have had to go to my grans (thats no actually that bad, its just because I wouldnt have my PS3). I went out and played in the snow and had a snowball fight. It was good snow for building so my dad brought up the idea of making a snowman. I went and rolled a ball of snow for the head of the snowman while my dad built up the body. I then rolled another ball of snow for my dad to use to build up the body. My dad helped me get the ball back to where the snowman was (in my front garden) because it was really big and heavy. Once the snowman was built my dad went back inside and I had a snowball fight with my next door neighbour Callum.
Today the men from Glasgow came in to put new windows in my house. We werent expecting them so when they arrived we were all in our pyjamas. My mum got dressed and took us to grannys house while the men were preparing all their stuff. Their was only two men that came so only one window was done at a time. When I arrived at my grans, my granny was just up and my grandad was away to the shops. He took a bit longer because of the snow and ice, which meant he couldn’t take his car. My gran was surprised as it was only about 9 o’clock and she thought that was the time we would be getting up at and not arriving at herhouse. She didnt have lots of the food we like because she wasnt expecting us.When I got in I said “Hi” to my gran then sat down on the couch and played my DS while my brothers Ryan and Ben ran around the house playing guns (in other words playing with my grans toy guns). Once I had been at my grans for about 30 minutes my grandad got up. He had to get ready right away and got to my Papa’s house to do his washing and see how he was getting on. My Papa is actually my Great-Grandad but I call him Papa fro short. he is 97 years old so my Grandad needs to look after him (he gets meals on wheels and stuff so my grandad doesnt do everything for him). Soon after my grandad left I went onto my grandads laptop. I went on my blog (which I am on right now) and worked on a post about when my little brother Ryan signed for the falkirk academy. Then I went and played guns with Ryan and ben. Thats really what I done for most of the day. I slept at my grans because my house was freezing. I kind of felt sorry for my mum and dad, sleeping in a freezing house. I had to sleep next to Ben (who is only 3) becaus there is only 3 bedrooms in my grans house.
Today I woke up and went downstairs to play my DS. I then had breakfast and got my clothes on (I was in my pyjamas). Then I had yesterdays advent calendar chocolate (I saved todays one for later). I played a game of battleships with Ryan then had lunch. After lunch I watched TV for about 1 hour. Then I went on the laptop for about 1 hour. After that I went outside in the snow and had a snowball fight. At one point Ryan was advancing at me with 2 snowballs so I ran behind a bin with a huge pile of snow on top of it. Ryan ran at me and I just shoved all teh snow off the bin and onto him. He got some down his neck but it was funny. Soon after Ryan went in and that left me and grandad out in the snow. Grandad wanted to make a snowman so I agreed. They werent the best snowmen in the world because the snow wasnt good for building so I couldnt go and roll a ball of snow for a head, but they were still good given the circumstances. Then we went inside to have dinner. Soon after my mum came to pick us up and take us home. The house didnt smell very nice, it smlt like fresh paint. And we couldnt go in some of the rooms because they hadnt been cleaned (all the rooms were covered in wood shavings and stuff so they needed cleaning. All the bedrooms and the living room an kitchen were cleaned but the room with the computer and PS3 werent. I was still glad to be home, though.
