Freddie. April 19, 2010

Filed under: Family Stuff — cartwheelqueen @ 7:10 am

Freddie was my little brother, he was born on the 2nd of April 2010. When he came out he didn’t breath so he went into the Special Care Baby Unit SCBU for short. Freddie was put on a Ventilator.

The hospital he was in had just had a Virus going around so me and my sister weren’t allowed to see him.

But on the 6th of April they said we were allowed to see him, when we saw him he had a lot of wires helping him to get better.

After 2 days of being on this Ventilator Freddie was able to breath and shortly afterwards my mummy was allowed to give him a cuddle and when she did he opened his eyes just a little bit.
He then went to another hospital for the day to have is brain waves measured.

After that we had lots of ups and downs but he was stating to get better. Then he was moved into a room of his own and we were allowed to see him. We brought him some presents all of which he liked.

I gave him a Comfort Blanket, Maddy gave him a a Lullaby Teddy, Amelie gave him a bear called Leonie and Josie gave him some baby grows.

A while later he opened his eyes and was having a good look around. When we came to see him a while later he was asleep but we all had a picture taken of us and here it is.
Unfortunately after we had left he got a chest infection. The doctors thought that they could make him better but Freddie was too young to fight it off. He died on the 13th of April Freddie died aged 11 days old. But he died happy and in no pain.


School days. April 17, 2010

Filed under: Family Stuff — cartwheelqueen @ 6:12 am

Going to school for the first time ever is not easy. My first day at school was a bit confusing, because I didn’t know what to do at all. I met lots of new people, but only a few on the first day. We started a project on the first day it was a research project where each of us had to pick a subject and write about it.

I chose the Tudors and wrote 25 pages on it on the Bradgate park and all the kings and queens from Henry the VII  to Elizabeth the first, I even did the confusing bit about Lady Jane Grey. I did a lot of projects while I was there.

I did DT which is design and technology where we had to build a House then a car boat thing which we had to test.

Then we started an end of school term play of a Midsummer Nights dream but we turned it into A Midsummer Terms Dream since there was a lot of us we had to play a bit of one part so one person would Puck in one scene then another in the next scene. Which was great fun and went well.

We also had P.E where sometimes we did Orienteering and other times we did Cricket (which I was RUBBISH at).

One of my favourite times was when I helped at the younger Sports day, me and my friend Elizabeth did this game where they had to jump through these hoops and then ran back and I enjoyed doing that. Then there was my Sports day. I was the second Captain it was great fun and we won!!!

I did try a day at Orton Longville but I knew school was not the place for me. But I’m really glad I went and I really enjoyed it.


Fairies and Bronzos (story)

Filed under: Projects — cartwheelqueen @ 5:51 am

Once there was a fairy called Millie Mae she lived in a old sparrows nest. She spent most of her time reading magic. The other fairies asked her if she would come and play with them she always said no. One day she was out and she saw a noticed saying

WANTED £1000 if you find…

Jackdaw Haddow.

I’ll help find him she thought and she flew of to the woods. at the entrance something jumped out.


“I was looking for you.” She in a calm voice.

“WHY!?” He thundered.

“What are you?” She said in the same voice..

“A Bronzo.” He said almost in tears.

“Sorry but what’s tha.t” she said.

“Can’t you see I’m a big elf?” he said.

“Why are you crying.” she said.

“Because I’m the last Bronzo, you would be crying if you were the last fairy.” He said.

“Yes I suppose I would, but how do you know your the last bronzo.” She said.

“Because I….. don’t know.” He said in tears again.

“Lets go and look for one then.” She said.

“YEAH…oh but they would catch me.” He said in tears again.

” Who?” She said.

” The zoo people.” He said.

“Why would they want to catch you.” She said.

” THINK CHILD THINK why else would they want to catch me unless they were going to put me on show.” He said.

“I see…Well there must be another Bronzo in the wood.” Said Millie.

“Maybe.” He said.

“Well let’s look, we’re going to find one before the day is out!” said Millie

“LETS GO!!!!!!!” He shouted.

“They walked for a few hours there had been nothing in sight. So they walked few more hours. Still nothing.

“Millie,are you sure we’re going to find another bronzo?” He said.

“Look I’m sure we’re going to find one.” Said Millie.

“Alright.”Hhe said.

They walked on and soon they came to a city, there was a notice it said…

WANTED  £1000 if you find

Lucy Bonna

“Looks like a Bronzo.” Said Millie

“We need to find her.” Gasped Jackdaw.

“That’s what we’re going to do.” Said Millie.

So they walked and walked and walked some more until they came to a cave, there they heard a faint cry. So in they went.

“What are you doing in my lair… Are you another Bronzo???” Asked the girl.

“Yes. are you?” Asked Jackdaw.

“Yeah. What’s your name? She said.

“Jackdaw Haddow. You?” He said.

“Lucy Bonna.” She said.

Millie then flew off back to her home. She was reading her books again and sometimes playing with her friends.

The End
