Morning. It’s Grace here. I can’t believe I haven’t written anything here for two whole years! Now I’m 10 and yesterday I lost another tooth. It was a huge one and the tooth fairy left me $5. When I lose all my little teeth, I have to get braces. Yuk.
Anyway, I still believe in fairies but I also like a lot of other things now too. My favourite is my dog Blossom. She is soft and squishy and one of my best friends. She sleeps on my bed (but she also sneaks into Mum’s room at night) and I feed her every night. I have to clean up her poo which is a job I really really hate.
I also LOVE One Direction. Mum says every girl in the world probably does too. I’m going to their concert soon with my Dad and I can’t wait!!!!!! I still love being outside and I still want to be a writer when I grow up. Here’s something I wrote the other day. And some photos I took. I LOVE flowers!
I run down to my favourite place. The soft canopy soars above me, it is the place where I am aware of the world. The velvet earth beneath my feet. Then the rain starts. It is as soft as a kiss from a mother to a child, the glistening drops tickle my skin as they fall from above. I sniff the air; it smells like damp. The dark grey clouds start to close in on me as the wind whispers in my ears. The melody is so sweet it makes me let go of my senses.
My body slowly shrinks to the ground making me aware of everything. Now I realise it is pouring with rain. The soft pitter patter has stopped and there is a violent thrashing on the ground as giant drops hammer the soil. A crack of thunder startles me and I jump to my feet. The wind’s whisper is gone. Now it is howling like a lonely wolf being hunted. The lightening flashes as I try to run back inside. Then it is gone. The sprinkle of gentle rain returns and I am safe again. Everything smells clean and real. I am happy and so is the world around me.**
I hope you like it.
I haven’t gone fairy hunting for a while. But I have taken some photos of plants and flowers.
See you soon!
