Not an ordanarie windy wellington day.


It all started on a thursday night walking into the wind trying to get to the car.The wind was so strong that I could lean 45 degrees into the wind.If you dont know what if talking about im talking about the big storm on thursday the 20 of june.When I got home from the college meeting the power went out and we couldnt see a thing.The only thing that lit up the room was the fireplace untill we got the big dolphin torch and some candles.When I woke up I put on some warm clothes and went down to the bottom of my section to see that 12 10 metere trees had fallen down include ing the really big tree that had my swing rope on it.4 trees had fallen on the fences and all the others were either on 45 deggere angles or flat on the ground.It was so windy still that my dog Jess ran up the hill because of the roaring wind.My dad was at work so I rung him up to tell him what happened and asked him why the power went out, and he said that the roof of the factor down the road blew into the power pole.We still have 8 trees down but that's not much of a problem at the moment. When the power came back on me and my mum went down the road and clapped for the workers.The power was out for 19 hours but it was a cool experience.

The day things started dissapearing

The day things started disappearing

It all started on a glamorous Saturday morning when Bob,Ross and I got up to play some PlayStation.First to be refreshed we went outside,kicked the ball and went back inside to have some weet bix,but when we went inside there was no food but a juice box.I ran to my room with Ross and Bob to see if my PlayStation was there.When I went in there was nothing but a cup of coffee and a chocolate biscuit so I was starting to think that someone was playing a trick on us.I went to tell my mum but she was nowhere in sight.When I turned back to see Bob and Ross I could hear Ross screaming “help” “Im down here”.I knew something was up so me and Bob ran as fast as we could to see that there was a huge Crater right outside my window.

All of a sudden Bob started crying and Ross was yelling at him saying “STOP CRYING YOU BABY” which just made him burst into tears.Bob I found a rope and pulled Ross out of the Crater and ran until we could run no further.When I looked behind me Ross was nowhere in sight just to see two shoes on the ground of his.I yelled out “ROSS, ARE YOU THERE”there was no answer.Bob suggested we should go back and find him but I thought it was to risky because what if I disappear,it means I might never see earth again and I could be living on mars or something.Me and Bob carried on.We heard a huge BOOM!There was a big explosion and we all died just to wake up on a glamorous Saturday morning after a big sleep in dream.

The majestic cross country

What a wonderful day I said to myself as the sun came out for the 2.5 km long cross country.Thinking about the cross country made my stomach drop because I was worried I wouldn't beat my score from what I did last year.When Mr smith called out year eights I knew It was our turn to show what I had got.First we warmed up and lined up on either number 1,2 or 3.I lined up on 2 because I'm between 1 and 3.The air horn went off and I was running for the front but as I was running I near lie tripped over in the scooter area because it was really crowded.I finished the block run in under 3 minutes and I was off up the hill,I could remember running past Mr Skip worth at the corner before the motorway bridge.

I was just about half way through the cross country at that point but I didn't stop and kept running until it was the last hill.I ran down the hill under the bridge and came 46 at the finish line,although I lost by 3 places from my place last year I was still happy of my achievement.I was so hot that I felt like I was in an oven turned up to 300 degrees.I had a big drink and saw all my friends.

I quite enjoyed the cross country but I would prefer it on grass because its softer on my feet.
