Have you ever been on a residential trip? Have you ever seen what appeared to be a ghost? I have I bet you think I’m mad, if you told me this story I probably wouldn’t believe you.

Sunday 17th march

I was dancing around my bedroom celebrating and singing “I’m going on holiday tomorrow, I’m going to spring bank hotel.”

“Shut up darling you need to pack,” my mum snapped

“But I’m exited!” I moaned

“I know, but you don’t want to turn up with half of what you need do you.” She pointed out

“No.” I muttered, I hated it when she was right

Tonight I know that I won’t be able to sleep, I know it.

Monday 18th march

This morning I woke up at 5:30 in the morning and couldn’t sleep. I looked at the paper from yesterday, “murderer escapes” I just put it not really interested.

At school it was really boring because we were waiting just waiting to leave on the coach for age. The journey was long and boring, I just starred out of the window, whilst playing the game “ find the sign first”. I didn’t win though.

When we got there we were told where are rooms were and who we were sharing it with. There, of course were some rules and these were:

1. No boys in girl’s rooms, or girls in boy’s rooms.

2. No eating in the rooms

3. No bad language

4. No impropriate behaviour

And lot of other rubbish rules.

We were on the zip wires this afternoon it was fun. After we had tea, chicken casserole, I didn’t like it.

Also the poetry anthology is a great idea. Maybe some short stories too? One thing I wondered was whether people might want to have some kind of regular poetry writing slot - either every now and then or as an option during our Thursday sessions. There's a book called The Ode Less Travelled by Stephen Fry which has loads of different forms of poems which might be fun to work through, but there is also free verse, and exercises along those lines.

And you're forgiven for the biscuits :)

Yeah I agree with Leif - good stuff, it makes me want to hear more. When's the next installment?

Hi Anne!

Well, first of all, happy to see you get your books out, finally. Would love to thear what your parents think of it.

And then, once more, bravo for your writing! There is a lot of good things happening to it, I really feel it's getting very interesting. It was always fun to read about andrew the sausage but this is somehow a little bit more mature and language much more developed. ut I knew you could write and you knew I knew that so this is not new. Just saying keep it up really! Is this going to lead to some more installments on the same story? I would love to see you write slightly longer stuff. You could always write it as small episodes similar to andrew but maybe a little bit more interconnected. After a while you will have a longer story!

We'll try and do your idea for a poetry anthology too. I'd like that.
