I was expecting my parcel to come today after school. I walked in from school and I searched the perimeter of our house to look for it. I bought it last week and the delivery people said it would be delivered today. The package is super fragile and small I can’t wait to play with it. Mum only allowed me to get it if I looked after by myself. I will need to feed it everyday and give it water so it will survive. I was feeling disappointed that it didn’t arrive so I went to my room and there it was on the bed. “When did it arrive?’ I said to my mum.

This is his favourite but on that day we went for a stroll it was not there and the rest of the sculptures had disappeared. “Where could they be? “I asked my grandpa.
He said, “they have all been moved out and are being sold so they don’t get bulldozed by the trucks coming in to make a Disneyland.

On Tuesday the 28th January 3013 my family and I went to see the Commonwealth Games in Tokyo Japan. We saw the swimming unfortunately the swimming was outside so it was really sunny, boiling hot and lots of people got sun burnt. Suddenly it started bucketing down rain and everyone was drench because there was no shelter. The crowd was running to their private jets to escape the pouring rain although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress. So crowd was so soaked they could have collected buckets full of water and made a Commonwealth Games swimming of their own.

One day on the way home from school. Everything looked the same except I couldn’t see my dog even outside in the backyard. My dog was small and hard to find but I had looked everywhere even in the toilet. He was nowhere to be seen. I look around the backyard for the hundredth time and I hear barking. I start to yell, “Jeff come here, Jeff”. I could see him anywhere and I look up to the clouds and wonder where he could be. Suddenly I see him standing on the roof next the gargoyle but how did he get up there.
