My Trip To Skegness. Blogpost by Bismah 4M.

On wednessday 27th July me,my sister Faryal, my mum and some of my cousins took a fabulous trip to Skegness. Let me tell you about it…

The night before we were going I was very excited. Me, Faryal and my mum were packing what we were going to take which took over an hour! When I was packed I fell asleep, meanwhile my mum and Faryal were still packing.(I fell asleep at 11 o’clock and Faryal and my mum went to sleep at 3 o’clock!)

Even though I was electrified I was a bit grumpy at the same time because we had to wake up at 7 in the morning and leave at 8! 😦 When I was ready Faryal was still lying in bed. Finally all of us were ready so we put the food and clothes in the car and drove off. My dad dropped us off at Handsworth. We got out of the car and walked to the coach. I sat by my cousin Hira and cousin Aleena. It took us at least 1 hour to get ready to drive off but we finally managed.

On the way I was just talking to my cousins about the trip. After a while we had a snack. I was very keen to get there quickly but I just had to be patient. Half way there we stopped just to have a rest and then we took off. As time went by we made it. It took us a good 5 hours to get there but it was worth it. We got there at half past 12 and had to come back at 5 o’clock. The first ride me, Hira and Aleena went on was very frightening. I sat on thinking that it wouldn’t be petrifieing but it was. It started off slow then became faster and faster and faster. I kept my eyes shut hoping the ride was over. When I got off I said to Hira that i’m never going on it again. Hira told me that she loved it. Next we went on a ghost ride I sat by Hira’s sister Hajra. When we went in I put my hands over my eyes. Half way I took them off. It wasn’t terrifieing at all. After a few more rides I went on the bumper cars. I sat with Hira’s mum and she drove. It was very fun but I got off with a bruise on my leg.

When we had gone on more rides we sat down and ate. After we had ate me, my cousin Iqra, cousin Sidra, Hira, Aleena and Aleena’s sister headed off to the beach. When I saw it I was absolutely mesmerised. The sand was so smooth and the sea was crystal. The smooth sand was so deep that you couldn’t even run and your feet sank. We had lot’s of fun at the beach. We played in the water and took pictures. (The water wasn’t warm it was really, really cold.) At 5 o’clock we got changed out of our wet clothes and into our dry clothes. We headed back to the coach but it wasn’t there so we waited. Whilst we were waiting I had an ice-cream. When the coach had arrived we got on and drove off. Eventually we arrived back to Birmingham.

Mya’s Summer holidays so far…

Me and my family have been really lucky because my older sister who is married and lives about one hour away has come down to stay with us for the week. At the moment she has gone down to keep in touch with her friends so I thought while I’m not busy spending time with her, I might as well write a post telling you all about what I have been up to so far in the summer…
Deciding I need a bit of a break my sister has treated me to movies at the cinemas, bowling, restaurants and many more captivating journeys.
On the first evening when my sister came, although we’re all trying to keep healthy and fit we went out for an appetising, delectable meal at Wing-Wah!
One day later, after waking up at almost mid-day, we all went out to the cinemas to watch Kung-Fu Panda 2. You’d never think it but that is a very enthralling film it really hooks you in, if you get some free time you should watch it.
The next day we went to merry-hill to do some shopping, I have to admit, I soak out my parent’s wallet when it comes to shopping! Also that day I didn’t just spend their money on shopping, I spent it on a heavenly, luscious pizza hut too!
Yesterday we went bowling, I never lost the game that time but I am not fantastic at it only because I’m quite weak and the balls nearly pulled my arms off!
Later in the evening we was in the mood for some American food so we head out for T.G.I Fridays even though it wasn’t a Friday!
I do hope my phenomenal holidays continue because I sure am loving them so far!

The Poor Song Man By Zara

Have you ever been unloved and unwanted by your family?
Have you been ignored while you are trying to entertain your family?
Well in this story this is what happened to the Song man…
“Go away we don’t need you here” said his wife (Rebecca) while she was peeling the skin off a rabbit. The song man felt lonely and unloved by his cruel, negligent family. They were negligent because they didn’t appreciate all the hard work he did for them (like hunting for food). He was old and ancient and had wrinkly skinny fingers. He tried to entertain his family but they took no notice, He was heartbroken. Although he didn’t want to leave he had no choice but he had to leave. The song man trudged out his camp, tears were cascading down his cheek which was like a leather sofa. He looked over his shoulder and saw them dancing and having a greatest time without him. He had never been so sorrowful and felt like his heart was going shatter into a thousand pieces. He walked slowly and he saw beautiful, shiny pebbles on the ground. Later that day he saw mesmeric, glimmering water which was calm and serene. The waterfall was cascading like diamonds rushing down. Just at that moment he felt that he was being dragged by someone or somebody……

Then he saw a scaly, exquisite tail and long golden hair. Who was swimming gently in the water? Who could this be? Just then he saw a gorgeous, picturesque mermaid he had never saw one before ever in his life. He had the most great, fantastic time! He swam and saw lots of types of creatures. But he still remembered his family and saw them sobbing with tears. He tried to touch them but it was just a dream. He felt miserable and unhappy. Despite him missing the caring, loving mermaids he had to leave the water and go back to his family. He headed back home and slowly trudged as he waved to the mermaids. The man’s family was sitting down casted and suddenly with shock they heard footsteps. They were ever so glad and pleased they rapidly ran to the song man and hugged him. Never again will I leave my family. Now they appreciated the things he did for his family. Well that was the story of the song man.

The Mermaid Story By Mya

“You’re absolutely hopeless, you can’t even sing!” My savage, cruel sons screeched over my voice as I tried to entertain them with my dancing. Unloved, uncared, taken for granted I secretly trudged out of my own home to be away from my boisterous, brutal family. Can you believe my own family don’t love me? Despite me knowing it was something I’d never usually think of doing… I abandoned my family and headed out for outback…
Halfway down a prickly path, I threw a discarded, chipped pebble to show my anger and frustration. I dragged my weak body towards a tall tree as a radiant, picturesque magpie caught the pebble I threw. At that moment a phenomenal idea suddenly began to blossom in my mind…
Deciding that I had nothing more to lose, I followed the precarious, exquisite creature which led me through a deserted, drab forest to a cascading waterfall which trickled into a pond. In the spot I was standing the sky, which was as clear as crystal, seemed much more beautiful than I had ever saw it. Surrounding me I saw such kaleidoscopic plants which were the most radiant things I’d ever see. As I began strolling towards the harmonious pond my feet felt as if they were in a bucket of moisturiser! Dejectedly, despondently I peacefully swam to the centre of the serene pond feeling overwhelmed as if all my problems suddenly faded away, until I felt myself uncontrollably being dragged into the pond by some sort of creature under the water…
Who was it? What were they doing there? Why did they pull me in?
Pushing the water behind me I trembled as I noticed precarious, exotic mermaids were surrounding me!
Throughout that tranquil evening I felt as if the mermaids were my own family, they cared for me and adored my company. Usually I am very content but I was the most elated I’d ever been in my entire life.
Even though I thought my intense, tempestuous family was my past, that evening I had an image reminding of the cruel lot. Although I had an idea it’d be of them teasing me, it seemed to be of my two sisters first weeping and then my young son sobbing away heartbrokenly. Stuck in a dilemma, I bit my lip struggling for a decision but as a vivid, radiant creature swam by I made up my mind. I ordered the exotic creature to take me to shore.
Peacefully waving I cried my byes to the striking mermaids and even though I knew I’d miss them, I began my journey returning home…
Proud, relived, delighted I scrutinized my family as I arrived and over the moon they hugged me back. Never again will I leave my family no matter how exasperated they get me because everyone has their arguments.
