For once, we were finally able to use a sled. A toboggan. Being a Wednesday, I had school in the morning. Naturally. It was boring. But while I was at school, Dad went out to a large sports shop near Carcassonne, called Decathlon. They have so many things there, including sleds. Dad got two sleds. One big, red one with brakes, and one small green one that looks a bit like a spade. When I got home from school, we made sandwiches, and Dad, Nicholas and I went into the snow.
On the 10th of December we went to the Sigean African wildlife reserve. They had tons of animals there. It wasn’t just a few well known animals that happened to live in the reserve, there were hundreds.

Our first stop on our trip to France was in Bangkok, where we did a full day elephant experience at an elephant rescue centre, three hours by car south towards Malaysia. The centre was really fun and they actually had many other types of animals there too. Like sun bears and Asiatic black bears and iguanas and jackals. All the animals that they have at the reserve were rescued by the centre from service.

The school had been practising for the celebration all term with Ollie’s class doing gymnastics and singing while my class were practising homework-excuse jokes, singing, drums, guitar, and recorder.
Today there was a fishing tournament in la Place de la Republique, which just happens to be right outside our apartment window.
Today we went on a day trip to Collioure. It was a 2 hour drive to get there and when we got there we had a pastry and a drink, and went for a swim in the Mediterranean sea.
Today when I woke up I was so excited that I was going to go to Andorra. But I knew I would miss my mum because she was not coming, even though I knew I wouldn’t miss her for long, because I was only going for one night. Continue reading
Today was my first “quest” into the labyrinth. Don’t blame me for saying “quest” my dad told me to. But anyway, if you don’t like hearing scary things because you get sick when you hear them, I recommend skipping to the 3rd paragraph. Hint: We got lost in the labyrinth. Continue reading
