E33 Colomendy

The coaches pulled off away from the school and everyone was excited to be away from home for the first time.There was a couple of kids crying as they got on the bus and who cried a lot throughout the whole trip. At the time we thought this was hilarious and everyone at the backContinue reading “E33 Colomendy”

E32 Third Year of Juniors

As mentioned in the last blog we were to begin a new school with a permanent teacher.Peter Gribbon took over our class and if you were on the football team you walked on water.Even though I’m a terrible player I remember that our school used to win all of the competitions. There was always aContinue reading “E32 Third Year of Juniors”

E30 A Disappointing Outcome

Well, this week’s blog topic is unexpected, to say the least.I planned to continue the story of my school days so far.I had found Francesca and saw what she was doing and that she was doing very well. The detective in me told me to keep looking and for me to do a more detailedContinue reading “E30 A Disappointing Outcome”

E27 Mr Hughes, Ex boyfriends and a very merry Christmas

The school year continued the rest of the pupils and I were all high on life due to our 2 victories.If you remember from last week we had secured a classroom and we had also got rid of Miss Jacob. I’ve no idea what happened to her but she has to be dead by nowContinue reading “E27 Mr Hughes, Ex boyfriends and a very merry Christmas”

E25 A new Family

In all honesty, now is the best time to talk about Sandy and her family as they do not feature much later on.If I introduce them later on then there’s a chance it will wreck the continuity of the writing. I know Sandy won’t like this post if she reads it but still, I don’tContinue reading “E25 A new Family”

E23 Sidetracked

The problem with writing when there is so much going on is that it’s easy to get sidetracked.When I write I do not want there to be any misconceptions so that’s why I try to go into as much detail as possible while at the same time keeping the reader engaged. It’s not as easyContinue reading “E23 Sidetracked”

E21 Planting roots

I must make a correction from the last blog. It was my 7th birthday party and not my 8th. Everything else in the story is accurate but when you start to remember and take notes for future blogs they don’t all come out in the right order.Carol has been extremely useful with the timeline soContinue reading “E21 Planting roots”

E19 On the road again

I had made new friends in ST Michael’s school and the area we lived in was a huge improvement from where we had comeContinue reading “E19 On the road again”

E17 Worlds Apart

We loaded all of our luggage into the taxi and asked the driver to take us to a hotel for the night. Like I said in the last blog mum hadn’t factored in it is the height of the busy season. We were driving with the windows wide open and I couldn’t believe how hotContinue reading “E17 Worlds Apart”

E16 We’re all going on a summer holiday

The aftermath of the burglary wasn’t too bad overall.We claimed on the insurance and they paid out quickly without any question.This in itself is worth its weight in gold because normally dealing with insurance companies is an absolute nightmare. Having said that this was 1987 and they were not as clued up regarding scams andContinue reading “E16 We’re all going on a summer holiday”
