I’m so hungry it’s 3.30pm I’ve not had anything to eat since 7.30pm (last night). The staff don’t have to worry they get six meals a day. I also found out i get extra work tomorrow and the day after. I had nothing to do with it i just pulled out a longer piece of string.
Oliver Twist day 3 August 19, 2008
Somebody else went up today, the cook said it was my fault and I get the blame!. Only because I did it yesterday for the first time in history, how unfair!!! I got a good old beating and sent to bed (no food tomorrow then).
Oliver Twist diary (day1) August 18, 2008
It wasn’t because I was still hungry, we had a lottery who ever got the shorter piece of string had to go and ask for more. When it fell on me I felt really worried. I walked up I felt like crying when I got there, I said to the cook please sir I want some more the cook said “more?” I dropped my bowl and ran I almost trip over chair.
Horses and Pony August 5, 2008
I love horses. they are loving animals. there are lots of different breeds, my favourite breed is called the Thoroughbred. it’s my favourite breed because it’s the fastest horse and it’s very pretty. when they are fully grown they are usually 16.1 hands high (explain this to the group). they are usually brown, bay, or chestnut. Pony’s are like horses but smaller. My favourite breeds of pony are the Dartmoor pony, Exmoor pony and new forest pony. Dartmoor ponies when fully grown are 12.2 hands high. they are usually black, bay, or brown with some markings. Exmoor ponies when fully grown are 11.2 to12.3 hands high, usually bay. they are rarer than the giant panda and they have very big eyes. New forest pony’s grow up to 12.2 to 14.2 hands high, they are any colour except piebald or skewbald. a hand is four ins which is 10cms they are measured from the withers there shoulders. any horse 14.2 hands or less is a pony
