An adventure named Scotland


It was a week after we decided to get a dog and looked at the puppies (my family and I were sitting in a coffee shop called Heiner), when my parents broke out the news. We were going to Scotland for a year! My dad was a surgeon and he got a one-year job in a new country. At first, it was horrible news for my sister and me – my brother liked the idea of going away for a year – because we did not want to leave our friends behind. Soon, we had found a way of keeping in touch with them.

Blade 0363


I really enjoy chicken pie,
I’d also have a cookie,
But there’s one thing that will never tie,
That is macaroni. 

I also think there’s something nice,
Korma is that thing,
It’s much better with some rice,
But it is not the king. 

There hides something really tasty,
A pizza on a plate,
And I’m sure you’d all agree,
That it is really great.

Making Meringues


I have a memory of when I was in P5; Mrs Gauld, my friends and I had to make meringues for a school event. First, we had to separate the yolk and the egg white, Mrs Gauld said that the easiest way to do that is to get a small cup and put it on top of the yolk then collect the egg white. When we tried we messed up every time but when Emma tried she got just enough so that we could move on. The next step involved Harley whisking the egg white, when he finished the egg white looked so white and fluffy. After that, Bethlin slowly added the sugar, then Harley got to whisk it again.

Missed the Train

M.Harper, @@

Back when I was a young sprout – see what I did there?

Anyway. Back when I was 11 years old, when my mum was still on this side of living – well, she was obsessed with shopping. Whether it was clothes or jewellery. It really was anything she liked and had the money for (sometimes she didn’t and bought it anyway).

However, my story is specific to what I like to refer to as 'Suzanne's Week of Life'. I call it this because despite everything that was going on inside my mother's body at that time, her last full week of life was the happiest I ever saw her.

My Own Open Quesadilla


My parents always care for me, give me the right things so I can grow up smart, healthy – physically and mentally strong.

My family always cook together. We rarely go to restaurants but when we go to other places, we seem to end up always making our own food using different ingredients from different parts of the world. I love this with my family.

I love everything about cooking. From preparing the fresh ingredients, then serving the food and seeing everything eaten with enjoyment. Even peeling potatoes is an art to me!

It's funny how good food can make you forget your worries.
Your parents are getting divorced, but you’ve got that buried.
Feeling dizzy from the wine, you can’t keep yourself in a straight line,
But making a fool out of yourself is your last worry.
See, your family has always been tight-knit,
Or at least that’s what you thought until you came home for a week,
Under the false pretense of some family fun,
You wish that talk had never even begun.
The tears stream down your face in despair,

Dear Diary,

Sorry, I’ve not written in a long time, I was very busy with Granny and my little brother Caelan.

On Monday, Caelan and I went for a sleepover. We all went to Morrison for shopping. As usual, Caelan went off doing... well, who knows. Meanwhile, Gran and I were looking for food we could have for dinner but we couldn’t find anything yet. Eventually, Caelan came back with gingerbread, Chippy menu, and sausage in beans. He went over to Gran and asked, “Can we have rolling things for dinner?”

The Feast


Watching the fireworks display on New Year’s morning is one of the best feelings that you will ever experience. Celebrating the start of a New Year, making New Year’s Resolutions and spending quality time as a family. After a while, once we all begin to yawn and face the struggle of keeping our eyes open, we depart from the sitting room and when we are in bed – we almost instantly fall asleep.
