R.I.P Aunty Shearly

On November the 11th, my Aunt Shearly passed away. 😥 We were planning to go see her in Canberra for that very last time, as she was very old. We were packed and rented a new bigger car, it just cost too much to fly. As we went to pick it up, we got a phone call from our grandpa, she passed away. 🙁

We might be going to to her funral soon, we’re still going to canberra, just to support the family.

There’s a saying, when someone dies peacefully, it hurts their friends and family more than it ever hurts them.

But she will be in a happy place, a new family probably, and our other uncle (her husband of course).

It’s not the longest post, but I can’t go on any further. 🙁

 

Have you ever had a family member die?

Have you gone a long way just to see a person?

I hope she’ll be happy, I don’t think that she would of wanted us to see her in a state like she was when she passed away.

Oh, No! And… Yay!

I bet I know what your thinking, what would that title mean? Well here it goes.

On Melbourne Cup day, I missed the day of school because we were going to test out some horses for sale! 🙂 We had a two and a half hour drive past Melbourne and into the country. I had my mum’s laptop, my Ipod and a book. I almost slept half the time, but my excitment kept me awake.

The first horse was, Sweet Sorento Moon, he was so beautiful, but a little awkward to ride. When you were riding him, it felt like he was going to trot or whatever gait was next, so it would be hard to tell if he would spook or bolt on you. But then he started to trot off on me, then he had a little canter I think, and before I knew it, I was on the ground winded. My lower back was so sore, I couldn’t even sit down and relax, so the ride home was uncomfortable.

 Despite my pain, we stopped at another little place on the way home. There was a little New Forest pony there. His name was, Nim. I couldn’t download any photos, but he sort of looks like this, exept for the star on his forehead:

He’s five years old (a little young) and was so adorable. I couldn’t ride, but my younger sister did. He was very quiet and looked perfect, a black body and light brown around his eyes and muzzle (nose).                                                                                                                     My dad went somewhere with the owner and came back saying he was ours! :)We came up with a three barreled name, Nimrod Nelson Mandela, it is a little weird, but it suits him. 🙂

 

Have you ever had a bad and good day together?

Have you ever taken a long car trip to somewhere, and it didn’t go to plan?

Have you ever been so excited you couldn’t sleep?

The Melbourne Cup!

This post is about the… Melbourne Cup! Well, you could tell the post is about the Melbourne Cup because of the heading, why am I saying this? “Cough, cough”

The Melbourne Cup is the best known race in Australia, it’s held on the first Tuesday of November every year. It’s also known as “the race that stops the nation.”

Cyber Safety

I would just like to say, “Don’t cyber bully!” It’s bullying but on the computer, texting and mostly techology from which we communicate.  It is serious and if it continues, people may be hurt.

Sometimes, you can be cyber bullying and not even know it. That’s hard to believe, but it can happen, so always have a second thought before you submit or send something.

 

There are different types of cyber bullying.

Gossip

There’s gossip, that means things like spreading rumors, saying mean things about you and even turning the truth into something different.

Impersonate

Impersonating is going online and pretending to be someone else and stealing passwords or logins and changing details.

 

Have you ever been cyber bullied? (hopefully not)

Did you know the meaning of ‘Cyber Bullying’ yet?

I’d just like to say happy Birthday Warrick! Warrick is my brother that just turned thirteen.

On the 1st of October, 10:56 my brother, Warrick was born. This morning I had a count down (by my self) to 10:56, then finally the time arrived.  My brother was thirteen!

For his Birthday he just got a phone. We don’t have lots of money at the moment and a phone is really the only thing that he’s interested in and the biggest thing that we can get him. But my Grandma and Grandpa sent over $100 from Queensland! 🙂 So he’s going birthday shopping today.

He thinks he should have his party at Timezone. He’s been there  many times and never gets bored with it! 🙂

 

When is your birthday?

What did you get or want for your Birthday?

What’s your favourite place to have a party?

Have you been to a party this year?

I found it so funny that I made a joke about it, here it is.

Lizard: “Well, I think that this toilet is pretty neat.”

Toilet Owner: “Aaaaaahhhhhhhh! Richard, it’s so ugly!”

Lizard: “Well I thought that it would be a great place to live in.”

The toilet owner scooped it out of the toilet and threw it outside.

Lizard: “Oh, you ment me, that was dramatic.”

Animal Profile: Chester

 

 Sorry this one is late, the internet has been down and I coudn’t change the post 🙁

Here’s the second animal profile! This one is about my cat, Chester. I’m not so sure what his breed is, but want to. My sister and I got him for our birthday in 2011. He’s a gray and white cat, gray fur on top and white on the bottom. He even has a little gray spot under his chin that looks like a beard! I like to snuggle up to his ‘half’ coat if he comes to lie down with me. When I say half coat I mean that we got his belly shaved some time ago because it got very matted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S He’s not shaved in this photo.

Chester is the first cat that I’ve ever had. At first we would’nt really allow him to go outside in the neighbours backyard because they have a dog that sounds dangerous and didn’t want to take the risk. But that was when he was a kitten, now he is a big fluffball that comes back home with wattle in his coat! 😆

 

                                                                         Comment on:

                                                             Do you have a cat/kitten?

                                                     Do you like the animal profile?

                                                   Is there something funny or

                                                special about your pet?
