Soccer Barbie Letter

I wrote this letter for my English lesson – I decided to write about my new Made to Move Soccer Player Barbie doll, which I got for my Nameday (I’ll write a post about her soon!)


Dear Gracee,

How are you? I’m really enjoying my brand new, shop-bought soccer Barbie doll, which, after a long debate, I named Teresa. I love her soft yet slightly sticky hair – it slips right through my fingers! Today, while making a stop motion with her, I was surprised that her ‘joints’ made a very faint creaking sound when I moved them. I was also surprised by the doll-sized soccer gear – it was so cute, and easy to slip on and off.  Her plastic is also very smooth – and a lovely, dark colour, too! The smile on her face is wonderful, too – it warms my heart each time!

Lots of love,

From Venus

Watch out for the next post about Teresa, which will come next week!

My Poem – Kevin

Recently, I wrote my first ever poem! It’s called Kevin. Mum help me write it down. It is about a minion named Kevin. It is a hilarious poem.

Your goggles so awesome

Chazzy blue overalls

On your head – a possum


I hope you like it!

Polish Poem

This is my first Polish poem ever (I think). My mum helped me a lot, because she knows Polish very well.

Zimy nie lubię

Bo klucze gubię

W śniegu i wodzie

Tylko nie na lodzie

Mama mówi “oi”

I ja no to “ahoj”!

Use google translate to find out what it means. Although it gets a few words wrong, so here they are:

lodzie = ice

mówi = says

nie = not

You also might have to add a few words or swap them around for it to make sense. It will sound funny without them.

Making Ravioli

A couple of days ago, we made ravioli from scratch.


First of all, we made the dough. We used eggs and flour. We liked making the dough into things like couches and dough-men. Then we put all of the dough together and went to play outside.


We put the dough through the pasta machine. That made it thin. We liked getting scraps and putting them through the machine too.


We laid out the thin sheets on the table and then we put filling in. We stuck them together with egg, then we cut out the pieces.


All the pasta was boiled in a great big pot. Hen it was cooked we ate it with parmesan cheese, tomato sauce and chopsticks.


I though it was really great!
