My Summer Holiday

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

During the summer holiday, I did lots of fun things with Mummy, Daddy and my brothers and sister. This is a quick list of the stuff that I was busy with for 6 weeks before school restarted.

Swimming

I had a week of swimming lessons which I’ve written about already.

Portsmouth

We went down to the coast to Portsmouth and Southsea to spend a morning playing.

  • Brachiosaurus – A gigantic dinosaur on Southsea common, which was black – We walked underneath it and slid on it’s tail.
  • Hovercraft – From the Isle of Wight to Southsea, and everytime it came in it sprayed us with water đŸ˜†
  • Pain au raison – Crunchy outside but soft inside, tasted like custard with raisins and a croissant all rolled into one.
  • Threw stones like hovercraft flying through the air.

Clandon Park

Mummy took us to the National trust house, Clandon Park to visit the house and play games

  • Played games – Cricket, maze, noughts and crosses
  • In the house – secret door in the library, old furniture – seats with holly on them, pictures of Lord Nelson and the Queen in her palace, marble hall,
  • In the garden – orange ladybird, Pine cone game

Karen

Mummy and Daddy went to holiday in America so our friend Karen came to look after us for a week or so. We also did tons of stuff with her!

  • Clay models – Snowmen, doughnuts, carrots, cars, people from ‘Lego Batman’
  • Little Angels – Nets, ball pools, rope bridges, soft rollers.
  • Aquarium (Portsmouth) – Clown ‘Nemo’ fish, Blue Tang ‘Dory’ fish, sea urchins, Stingray, Piranhas, star fish, sharks, turtles, frogs, snakes, sea otters, bought slidey, slodgy things. Karen didn’t like the Octopus.
  • Saw a mouse, and tried to catch it. Made a house for it.
  • Made a holiday book

Devon

When Mummy and Daddy came back we went down to Devon and stayed in at the Duke’s Hotel in Sidmouth.

  • Went to rock pools and found starfish, crabs, sea anemones, prawns and fish
  • Threw stones at beach, made a wall – with sand and rocks, to stop the sea. It worked :smile:
  • Saw Nan and Grandad, and Bob and Helen
  • Toffee-fudge ice cream with a normal cone and then a chocolate cone
  • Watched Lewis Hamilton win Belgian Grand Prix in ‘The Anchor’
