Things I do with my tripod

Well things I do with my tripod are go outside and set it up there then I sit on a chair  and take videos and pictures of my and my sisters cats Midnight & Morgan or pretend its a gun and the sticky outy bit is a way I can contact 'base'. And the camera is a way that if a criminal kills some one the police/ detective see the photo and then the fingermarks on the camera so they know who did it. Some times I pretend I am one of the police/detectives.

The Undrowned Child book reveiw

~Teodora is an orphan who's only longing is to go to Venice.                            

Her adoptive parents always make excuses. Then one day when  she persuades her scientist family to take her to Venice she  feels she is coming home.                                                             

Teo(dora) loves reading and old bookshops and when  she is at one, a

 book falls on her head, the old shop keeper gives her the book for free, it is  called The Key to the Secret City. The books description is : hallo Teodora...  (I do  not  remember  the full description)

When Teo has a headache and starts "seeing" things( : statues talking) her parents ask a doctor to come who takes her to a hospital to stay over night. She wakes up to find herself in a graveyard with no memory of how she got there. When she reaches  the hotel that she is staying at she realises nobody can see her. The book (she has it with her)starts writing to her and showing her around Venice. She thinks she is a ghost but is still  a bit warm. Later on she realises: a.children and animals can see her   b.things(that)she touches turn  invisible to.                                                                                                            


She becomes friends with (Lo)Renzo whom she shares The Key                                                    
to the Secret City. Together they go to The House of Spirits and                                                    
find out about the mermaids who own printing presses which pr-                                                
int notes saying not to trust the mayor who encourages tourists                                                     
to come to Venice all though things are troubling.                                                                               
Teos parents are friends  with other scientists whom came with                                                   
them and brought there daughter Maria with them, Teodora and                                                    
Maria hate each other. Maria is really, really, really, really, really                                                
vain. Teo catches her with a teenage boy Teo suspects is evil, he h-                                              
as a suspicious mole on his forehead. And Teo sees he has given                                                    
Maria an emerald  earring and that is Bajamonte Tiepolo otherwise                                                                     
known as Il Traditore's (there main baddie\villain\enemy. He is a ghost.)                                                                        

Bajamonte Tiepolo was banished from Venice for his crimes against Her in 1310, but his ghost is back for revenge and he is building a fierce-some army of pirates, ghosts, vampire eels and a sea monster who can destroy the city of water.                                                                                                                                                                                
I would have liked to copy and paste the ancient prophecy but nobody has posted it on to a website.                                                        

I will continue this review after I have read The Undrowned Child again.

When It Snowed

Today is the 1st of March. and I haven't done very many posts recently. It was very fun when it snowed in February. My mum and sister gave me new Wellington boots which is a bit big which is handy because it can fit my thick fluffy socks inside. We went tobogganing or sledging and our sled is a really nice one and I liked it when my sister pulled me up the hill on it. I saw these kids doing a snowball fight and they didn't do it very well. They just picked up some snow, scrunched there hands down once and threw it. What I would have done was to take a lot more snow and actually roll it into a firm ball not just squish it and then I would throw it harder at my opponent.

Updates on My Tripod

About a week ago I got a new tripod.
My dad sent the old one to the people
who made it. I am happy that it now is
mine from the beginning. That's all.
