A life in the day………………….

At a quarter past seven the alarm on my phone (known to my mum as the ‘Ice-cream van’) rudely awakes me from my deep, warm, sleep, in which I was dreaming but can’t remember what about.

By now it is half past eight so I climb into the car where my older brother and younger sister are waiting for me. My dad soon appears and, saying bye to my mum, we leave for school.

After this I head to the library to do any homework that I have forgotten about. At about nine o’clock I head to the form room where I meet up with Rebecca and we head to Wilson Todd’s. In here you will find Kirsty, Claire, Katie, Kelly, Sarah and Sarah stocking up on chewing gum and other sweets. We head back to school and ...
