The Midden

So, although it should be Spring we have returned to Siberia with the Beast from the East.

The Artic blast has kept us at home for the past 2 days. I don’t want to do school work but my Mum says I have to (Booooo!)

Inside now cozy and warm playing the Playstation with a few friends, Fortnite. It was a blast. We played the new mode, solid gold,which means every weapon you find is legendary.

Mac n’ cheese now for dinner #nomnom =D


My Saint is…..

……James, also known as Santiago!

Saint James the Greater was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. He was the first apostle to become a martyr and the only one whose martyrdom was recorded in the New Testament. Son of Zebedee and Salome and brother of John the Apostle, Saint James the Great is the Patron of Pilgrims and Labourers. He is also known as the Patron Saint of Spain, having earned the Spanish title Santiago Matamoros which means “Saint James the Moor-slayer”.

I chose James firstly, because my Grandpa Jim was a very important person in my life and he has gone to heaven. Secondly, because he is the patron saint of labourers and my Pap Bradley was a Painter & Decorator he’d be his Saint too. I miss these guys :'(. Oh aye, and my Mum has walked the Camino to raise money for street children in Ecuador. She has a special credencial, certificate and medal.

My Aunty Amanda’s Fraction Tower.

Full set
Different ways to make 1
Halves make wholes.
Still making 1

I went to visit Aunty Amanda tonight. She showed me a really cool desk tidy she got as a gift for her new office. We practised different ways to make 1. You can see from my pictures that I learned different ways to make one. I like the top picture where you see all the different sizes but Aunty Amanda helped me make a few different combinations. I think my mum wants one now too!

If you please draw me a sheep!

Normally I laugh because my mum has to do GLOW homework. Tonight I’m joining her!

Mum and me laughed out loud on Monday at my new book. My favourite line in the first chapter is, “That is not a hat, it is an elephant inside a boa constrictor.” =D

From the inside 🙂 
This is no Boa Constrictor

Aunty and me went to see Coco about Day of the Dead. It was very good.

I went swimming on Wednesday with my cut knee; it stung a lot.

I ate birthday cake with my mum tonight. #nomnom
