Basketball bullies

By | November 25th, 2018|P for Positive|

I love running. That's for sure. I run everywhere. And I also love playing footy. But when footy was over at the end of winter, I needed something else to keep me active.  Mum and Dad said I couldn't just sit around all spring and summer, so I had to decided what else to do.  [...]

Dressups and differences

By | November 25th, 2018|P for Positive|

Every year it's the same. Jack O'Brien has a dressup party for his birthday. And this year is no different. He says it's because it's right near Halloween and people like dressing up, and should have a costume ready anyway. But I think it's just because his Mum is a drama teacher at the local [...]

Losing Maggie

By | October 25th, 2018|Healthy Minds, P for Positive|

So, my best friend, you know the one who I don't hang out with much at school, but who I've known forever and who hangs out with me on weekends and makes the best cubbies, and who my Mum and Dad really really like, and the one who knows everything about me? Yeah her, Maggie. [...]

Spring: pitchforks, peas and poo

By | September 18th, 2018|Healthy Bodies|

"Spring has sprung!" That's what Mum always says when we wander around our garden at this time of year.  And it's easy to see why. It really looks like, out of nowhere, stuff has literally spring out of the garden beds! We have fruit trees that were just twigs last week and are now fully [...]

I had to take some time out

By | September 6th, 2018|Healthy Minds|

Mum has this long lost cousin ....I'm not quite sure why she's 'lost' - she seems to know her way around - but that's what Mum calls her. Anyway, she came to stay with us last week. She's one of those people who you REALLY know is in a room.  She's noisy, she's big, she [...]

Onions, twirly pasta and feeling useful.

By | September 6th, 2018|Healthy Bodies|

It's so cool that we get to cook at school. I've never wanted to go into the kitchen and help Mum make dinner before, because, to be honest, I didn't think I could do it properly. And I really LOVE my food and I didn't want to mess it up. Because if I messed it [...]

Dad wants a new job. Mum wants to argue.

By | August 1st, 2018|Healthy Minds|

Grown-ups are so weird. I don't get why they get so cross about things that seem really normal and simple to me. They just seem to make things complicated that don't have to be complicated and then it gets everyone around them annoyed and fidgety. And then they go and get annoyed and fidgety at [...]

Legoland is my land

By | July 6th, 2018|Healthy Minds|

I love the winter school holidays. I get really tired at the end of school term - 'kinda cranky' says Mum -  so I really like the idea of doing nothing for a couple of weeks. Just sleeping in, having brekky when I want to, and deciding on what I want for lunch AT LUNCH [...]

Feel-good fires

By | June 14th, 2018|Everyday Adventures|

I love winter.  Footy, hot chocolates, pies, fires, mud, my doona. And I really like the long weekend, y'know, the one that celebrates the Queen's birthday. I don’t know if it’s actually the Queen’s real birthday… it seems a bit weird that she has her birthday on the same weekend every year… but anyway, it’s cool to [...]

My best friend found a new best friend

By | May 29th, 2018|Healthy Minds|

You might remember that Maggie, who has lived next door to me forever, is my best friend.  We learnt how to ride bikes together, we’ve built the most awesome cubbies together, we had a race to see who could lose their teeth first, we walked to school together for the first 3 years (not this [...]
