Stuff To Do On a Rainy Day

 I hope you all liked my short story, and if you haven't seen it yet, check it out. So it's really rainy outside, so I thought I'd make a list (long term readers, you get me by now) of things you can do on rainy days. But first, here's a little picture of what the weather was like yesterday, just to show you how annoying the weather is:

Argh! How irritating! Here's the list:

A short list of things to do on a rainy day

  • Find a board game
Even though they have gone a bit out of fashion, they are still fun at desperate times, like on rainy days.
  • Start writing a story
All you need is some characters, something you are interested in, an unexpecting twist and an imagination for this on a rainy day.
  • Bake a cake
This can be really fun on a dull day, and a piece of cake can really help. You don’t have to bake a cake, you can make anything with the ingredients you have.
  • Clean your room
This doesn’t sound fun. But if you turn up the sixties music, and dance along with your broom. Watch out, strictly come dancing!
  • Start learning something something new
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but never got around to it? Now is the time to start.
  • Learn a new craft
Can you knit? Sew? Crochet? Basket Making? Weaving?I spend a lot of time knitting and sewing, and who knows, you might never have to buy a Christmas present again!
  • Design your dream house
I did that already today, and it takes a while. Take time and add lots of detail, and you never know, the architect inside you might be better than you think.
I think that is definitely enough, and you should never say the b-word (bored) again. You might even find yourself staying in on a sunny day with these!

Here’s today’s quote:
There is nothing better on a rainy day than to soak in a bubble bath. - Zoella (Best person ever)
How did this happen? I looked up rainy day quotes and it turns out she said that!

  1. You got me laughing with Zoë! That is an amazing picture! And also pretty good tips of what to do in a rainy day... I personally love to have something sweet, wrap up in a blanket and read a book :)

    1. I like your idea :) Thanks about the picture and tips... as I said before, it really means a lot to me! Your idea sounds ideal, and I'm actually in a blanket with my book beside me and I'm just after making some muffins!

I've written a SHORT STORY!!!

So I have written a short story about a girl, and she loves music. I hope you enjoy it! EEEEK! I really enjoyed writing it. The title is based on a line the song "American Pie" by Don McLean. If you spot any mistakes, just comment below. And tell me what you think in the comments! 

THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED  By Meain Girl The traffic on the way home was terrible. I was so bored in the bus, I actually got all my homework done. When I got off the bus, I ran home, opened the door and went upstairs, taking the usual two steps at a time. I ran into my room, grabbed my guitar and started to practice the song me and Edmond wrote. Me and Edmond have been best friend’s since I moved into the neighbourhood. He lives on the street behind me, so it’s easy to keep in touch. While I was in the middle of thinking what to put in the next verse, the doorbell rang. I was hoping it was Mum or Dad so they could put on the dinner. But who was at the door but Beth. Argh- Beth. She is my annoying nex…

Question Time...

See what I did there? Very smart, using my new stamp set to start the post.
So I just found my camera and have been taking some nice pictures this evening. I'm so excited that I csn finally put my pictures on the blog, all the other pictures were from the internet. I don't think blogs are complete without a picture, even if they aren't great quality. It's just nicer to go out and take pictures with your camera than your phone, I guess.

So let's get to the topic: questions.
I have a lot of questions, most of them weird, wonderful, or just random. I asked people I know what question bugs them or what question they think about a lot. Here is one of mine:
Why did someone invent smooth peanut butter?I will post the other questions along with my next post, but for now I don't have enough interesting questions. Someone who is eight asked me why his maths book is different to the maths book from the year ahead of him. What?!?
If any of you were wondering about the new sch…

Ginger and Chocolate Biscuits

Hi guys!
This is a really nice recipe, which I found in a cookbook in my kitchen (a really old one without a publisher written on it!) and I came across a recipe for 'biscuits'. They could have came up with something more original! Anyway, I tried that recipe but the biscuits were very plain and boring, so I decided to spice it up a little (I actually used spices) ;)

Here is the recipe I use (which is half from the book and half from me!)

Makes about 18 biscuits (it depends on the cookie cutter you use, really)

For the biscuits:
350g plain flour
3 teaspoons of ground ginger, or 4 teaspoons if you're a ginger lover!
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
100g butter
175g soft light brown sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons of golden syrup

For the chocolate icing (don't really know what to call it!):
165g milk/dark chocolate (whichever you prefer)
Handful of sprinkles

Heat your oven to 180C, 350F gas mark 4.
Storage:Keep in an airtight container and eat within six days.

1. Dip a paper towel in some m…
