It’s good to be at home, and it’s been a very nice Christmas.
My mum’s been clearing out some cupboards, and found a bit of writing I did when I was maybe 6 or 7. We’re very impressed, so I’m here to share it:
[spelling/punctuation/etc. author’s own]
Once there was a boy and he wanted to play football in the park
(boy) where is my football
(mum) where you left it.
(boy) where did I leave it
(mum) I don’t now but it’s where you left it.
(boy) let’s go to the sport shop and buy another one
(boy) can I have this one.
(mum) yes you can have that one
(boy) great! let’s go to the park now
(mun) yes, come on
(boy) come down here mum look at this I have found my old foot ball.
(mun) why did you ask for another one
(boy) because I could-not find it and I have lost my new one
(mum) I can see it give it to your sister
As you can see, I was writing about what was on my heart – always best.
Excellent spelling, nice twist-in-the-tale, and good use of brackets!
