Friday 30th November 2012

Dear Diary,

                  I had the best day EVER today. I woke up this morning, the sun was shining through the curtains and I could smell breakfast cooking downstairs.  I jumped out of my bed, threw on my school clothes and skipped down to the kitchen.

        A delicious breakfast of pancakes with syrup was waiting for me on the table and I gobbled it down as quick as a flash. I grabbed my school bag, shouted “Bye!” to my mum and dashed out of the door to school.

        When I arrived at school, my teacher handed my homework back to me and a huge grin spread across her face. Guess what? I got 20 out of 20! I couldn’t believe it! We had my best lessons in the morning (Literacy and Geography).

        Before I knew it, it was lunchtime. The menu today was my favourite: Spaghetti Bolognaise followed by Chocolate pudding – yum! The afternoon flew by, and we ended the school day with a really fun game of Dodgeball, and we all cheered when my team won (of course).

After school, I came home and was met with the most amazing surprise; my mum told me that we were going out to the cinema and to Pizza Hut for dinner. We had a fantastic time!

I’m sitting on my bed writing this, remembering all the fun things that happened today. I hope tomorrow is just as good!
