The trials and tribulations of being a tweenager!


I am quite a musical person and have been for quite some time. I sing in the local youth choir as well as take singing lessons and have a choir at school. I will also be working towards grade 5 piano reasonably soon I think.

I was wondering about the possibilities of me making some music posts on this blog. I do like to sing a lot and would enjoy doing it. At first the recordings probably wouldn’t be very good but they will hopefully get better with time. I don’t write origonal songs but have a few favourites that I enjoy singing.

Home made paella!

Hey Guys,

sorry I’ve been really inactive recently but I’m trying to get back into it. Today I made a paella for my family’s tea (dinner for some people). I used Jamie Oliver’s recipe for chicken and chorizo paella. It turned out really well but towards the end of the 15 minute simmer mentioned in the recipe i did have to add some water as the paella had started to stick to the bottom of the pan. Just make sure you stir the paella often and move it around in the pan to prevent stickage. I also forgot to season the paella so although it tasted good it needed a little more salt and black pepper.

Yesterday I made some quilted effect cupcakes. Basically you make some normal vanilla or chocolate or basically any flavour cupcakes you want. Then took some sugarpaste and put it on the cupcakes. Finally score the cupcakes in a diagonal grid and put a edible silver ball where two lines meet. The process is simple enough but the result is s truly gorgeous. So my mum put these cupcakes on Facebook and I got sixteen likes in an hour and a half. Yay!!

Sleepy den building

Today was probably the first fun day at school in year six. Ellie, one of my classmates fell asleep twice! The first fun thing we did was to have a book auction, of which we would bid on different books with the book bucks we had earned earlier this week. The book bucks were a sort of money we earned by reading when the bell rang, by competing in a quiz and by behaving well.

So it’s nearly Valentines day and you’re wandering whether you should give a card to someone and if so who? Well, valentines day does not have to be boyfriends and girlfriends you can give cards to your family and friends too. I personally love pop up cards and green however valentines day and green are probably not the best match. Anyway school is normal.
