I come back to the sitting room to find this big furry thing sitting on my seat! She enjoys chillin on the couch. Too cute to be mad at!

NEW YEARS RESOLUTION!

It’s a bit late but late is better than never, right?

So I have been thinking long and hard…. for the last 10 minutes.

New Years Resolution is *drumrolls*:

To get fit and eat healthy and be healthy over all!!

I know I’ve said this loads of times, but I’m going to try really hard to stick to it this time around… it’s just bit hard with the weather being so miserable at times! Myself, like most other Irish person living on this island, don’t particularly fancy the rain. Farmers, gardeners, and any other people who love rain and water are exceptions!

Starting every morning with waking up early to walk my dogs (1 hour each). Then come back have a good breakfast and cycle to work… though this REALLY depends on how I feel because it IS 1 hour or more cycle one way! And another 1+hours to cycle home after a long days work… mmmm… We’ll see. 

And also more fruit and veg in my diet as well as more water! 😀

yes yes, that is it for now! Anyone else made any new years resolution? 😀

I tidy my room and discovered something interesting!!

Well, not REALLY interesting, but I just found a short story I wrote when I was 17! I was probably the worst English student back then as I was crap at everything English, apart from speaking it, and even still I wasn’t great at that! So when my English teacher gave me a B1 (81%) I was SHOCKED! Never been so proud of myself for something so trivial. But I thought I’d share my story with you. I’m surprised I ever wrote this story because to be honest, I probably wouldn’t be able to now if I tried! So enjoy!

Title: “It was mad…. Ridiculous!”

The sun was blazing from the sea blue sky and the air has been humid for quite some time now. I never realized how packed this orchard was until I noticed the shine from the skins of the bright orange oranges hanging independently from one another.

“Hey you! What you lookin’ at?!” I swiveled around only to discover Mr. Pip swaying from left to right. His skin was a bit shriveled up, but still round as a whole.

“Nothin’ much sir.”

“Aye, I see, you checkin’ out that juicy bub there!”

Mr. Pip was always the odd one. He hung there most of the time and enjoyed ‘observing’ his surroundings. Everyday was repetitive. Boring. Same scenery. A myth had been passed down from my mother’s generation.

“The one has yet to come”

It has been said that ‘the one’ to take us away from this place is nothing of what we will ever know or understand. It can carry over millions of us. It is huge, enormous, yet extremely loud and dangerous. It was said that this thing comes only on certain times during the year.

Over the other side of the orchid was a kiwi tree. These brown fluffy living things hung from their branches. The tree was no taller than a sweeping brush. 

On the same odd day, Mr. Kiwi became ripe and fell onto the soft yet dry ground. 

“OW!! Who cut me down!? Who dares go against the saviour?!”

The sun blazed down. It was as hot as ever. Mr. Kiwi lay there waiting for a miracle to occur, otherwise he would have shrivelled up like a dry peach! A miracle came, when three kids appeared from behind the little hill. Who could have ever guess what was in store for Mr. Kiwi.

“Just because you’re older than me, don’t assume that I don’t know anything!” Mr. Pip replied with “Ah, young’in. No need for temper. You may have the thickest skin here, but you sure have a soft inside!”

Just then, an explosion was heard from the opposite side of the orchard. Slow sounds of destruction was growing increasingly loud and the time was coming to an end. “Was this how my life as an orange was going to end? I never did any harm to any thing, well, not that I could any ways! I never met with another orange to make orange babies. My life can’t end here!! No! It’s not fair! Not like this! Not with Mr. Pip!!”

An orange round body swiveled around with a scrunched up face.

“What did you mean by that??…”

Then the enormous monster came into views. The sun rays hit off the cover and blinded me… almost. All the oranges around me shook with fear from their thin branches. It was over.

Suddenly, out of nowhere, three living creatures appeared in front of us. They were odd. Long arms and legs, unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. They appeared to be throwing some ball. Brown, small and in a way, fluffy…

“Wooo! I’m FREE!! My time has come to become your saviour!”

Mr. Kiwi was being tossed in the air to and fro. It was a rare sight! His hair brushed back with the wind, as if it was guiding Mr. Kiwi towards a certain direction.

“Farewell my fellow oranges! I would’ve loved to stay and chat, ya know, get to know ya’s all a bit better before I sacrifice myself… but no can do! I just don’t have that kind of time now…” and with that, the brave Mr. Kiwi was tossed in the air one last time. He tossed and turned in such a beautiful motion, as if he was dancing in the sky with the wind accompanying him. 

SPLAT!

He went straight into the heart of the monster. The noise has now decreased and the motion has stopped. Grey smoke came flowing from the monster. It was howling, but stopped moments later. All mayhem has ceased.

“It was mad… Ridiculous..”

So there! Hope you enjoyed my short story!

Hope you all had a super duper Sunday!

And a happy belated new year!
