That baby kept doing the same thing over and over so I didn’t play with a toy for an hour. At the end of that we had the cake and it was chocolate cake with chocolate icing on the top. Down the bottom there were crunchies smashed up and some little decorations which were two things with wheels on it. Guess what they were? They were a loader and tractor with a trailer on it.

Abi’s House by Lily McGreevy
In the second week of the holidays I wanted to go to my friends, Abi, Caitlin and Timmy’s house. I was excited because I do not get to spend much time with them. They have a very very long driveway! When I got up to the gate Abi’s puppy dog came down the driveway and barked. They were looking after another puppy dog that was doing the same thing except she was running slower. Their puppy dog’s name is Alfie and he is a boy and the one that they were looking after is called Meir who is a girl. I was a little afraid for a little while but then mum reminded me that I wasn’t afraid of Alfie. Meir was a tinsy bit younger so she was a little bit calmer. So, I ran to my friend Abi and ran out of the gate to Abi’s house. Then we both walked up the two story building – her house. We went inside and they showed me around. Me, Abi, Caitlin and Timmy went into the playroom that I never knew was there because when I was there last, it was Timmy’s room. In there we all played loom bands but Timmy did not play very much. We went outside and Abi showed me some chrysalis and at the end of the show (Abi and Caitlin called it a show) they showed me two caterpillars and then Abi and I saw something squiggling in the dirt. It was black and yellow. Guess what it was!? It was another caterpillar. One was called Lily or it was spelt Lilly. I don’t know!? We had lots of fun.
Great detail Lily. You always do a lot of fun things when you visit your friends.
