… and first of all, happy new year to everyone!
It was so great to be back at school today, and I was with Year 6, then Year 5!
First up was Mrs Mumbletrouble who ate such a huge breakfast that her stomach just kept rumbling and grumbling!
Next was Gangsta Granny, and Ben didn’t want to go to his Gran’s house. He said that all she wanted to do was play Scrabble (I do that when I’m digging in the garden!) and he also said that she smelled of boiled cabbage!
The Beak Speaks was next, and Dinah the mynah bird was watching as a dog chased a rabbit – and got stuck in a tube!
Oranges in No Man’s Land came after that, and you wondered how Granny managed to feed all her family with not very much food.
Up next was The Midnight Gang and George slid down the banisters so quickly that his pants caught on fire!
Then it was A Boy Called Hope, and Dan Hope was hoping to be revealed as the son of a celebrity …
Next was Wimpy Kid: The Meltdown, and the reward for doing some chores was a battery for the TV remote (it took 4 batteries!).
Last today was Spiderwitch, The Field Guide, where I got introduced to identical twins, Jared and Simon Grace. I wish I had an identical twin all the time – sometimes he’s there, right opposite me – in the mirror!
