Today I went
swimming swimming. We got a lady called Joyce or maybe she spells it like this Joice. She gave us a little test. We had to swim one breadth without stopping. We got a certifacate. Only Julia Garry and I went.

Today when I did my writing I had to write William walks to school then the poem that is going to be on the cairn. The Ythen welly boots had to go home early.
[I'm guessing the Ythen Welly Boots were the children who travelled from the neighbouring village, not even a village, of Ythenwells, though I had no recollection of ever calling them this.]

Tonight I write two ballets and I am going to write one more. [Prolific or what?!] I went over to Julias house to play. Toby was there too. Mummy made new curtains with the sewing machine.

Today there was no dancing. I discovered that Gary L, Gary W, William R, Robert H
unter, Garry N, Gordon B, Jhon W and Toby R all love me. I won a game of jump the blob.
[Wow! I was so popular, no? My school was tiny and that's nearly 50% of all the boys! Perhaps it was my Jump The Blob skills that attracted them all...?]

Today it was snowing so naturally I went out to play. Mr Scott brought up some skis. Mrs Scott
let me let me have a go. I was very good at it. I watched a very good film.
