Broken hill holidays

Well it's been too long since I wrote a decent blog post.. At the moment I'm sitting in the backyard and it is super windy. I was in the hammock but I was scared the breeze would blow me right out.. The sun is nice and hot and the wind is cold so my body doesn't really know what's what. Anyway Ill tell ya about some of the things I've been doin eh?

It's summer holidays! I am still out in broken hill.. The musical is finished, I've been playing squash, doing some screen printing with my step mum and sister, playing board games, going caroling, swimming, drinking lots of cups of tea and reading good books.

Gib and I made a version of his board game the other day. It's called the animal game.. We made all the pieces and the board and the box for it to go in, it took forever but was so much fun! Since then he's been thinking about other board games a lot and we've messed around making new characters and he even started testing out making moulds for the pieces. I love making stuff.

Oh I went swimming at the local pool yesterday.. I was happily floating along looking at the bottom and saw this funny little shape. I swam over to it and was like "hey what's this?" I picked it up and it was SQUISHY and I figured out it was a POO sitting on the bottom of the pool and inwardly screamed and swam away. I told the pool people and they came with a giant net and fished it out. I CAN'T BELIEVE I TOUCHED A POO.

So.. That was fun.

Hm ok my neck is getting sore from typing on my iPod. I might go now.
