Merry Christmas and the Hobbit

Merry Christmas everybody! (A bit late!) Anyway, I hope you all had a great Christmas celebrating the birth of Jesus.

OK, I saw the "Hobbit" on Boxing day and it was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow, what a great movie. The animation was amazing and it was exceptionally close to the book, which is cool.



I got to say, Thorin Oakenshield was pretty cool.

Gandalf was awesome, as always

Bilbo was funny and quirky,Martin Freeman made a very good Bilbo.

School


A few weeks ago I started school! It is quite fun and I like it very much. Everybody is very nice too. (Mostly)  The Sunday night before my first day of school I dressed my chair in my uniform and it looked very nice in it and it was loathe to give it up in the morning. Since this is way too short to be a post I will do a daybook. I hope you all like daybooks because if you don't I can't really think of anything else so you just turn off your computer .

Starting time: 5:15

Weather: overcast

I'm wearing: My school uniform. (Still. It is really rather comfortable)

I'm thinking: I wonder what we are having for dinner.

I'm looking forward to: Getting my English assignment done.

I hope: I get an Excellent

I'm celebrating: Getting 100% in my spelling test today. (Again!)

Where I'm looking: Outside my window, wondering if it will rain.

I am reading: Nothing. I don't have anything interesting to read at the moment.(Sigh)

I should be doing: My science homework! : )
Finishing time: 5:25

On Friday we came home from our cruise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so fun. Our ship was called the Pacific Pearl and was VERY big. We went to three islands. Vanuatu, Lifou, and Isle of Pines. Lifou and the Isle of Pines were in New Caledonia.  My favourite island was Vanuatu because we went on a tour on horse back!!!!! My horse's name was Asher, he was extremly good and did not mind the water too much when I swam with him.   -Hollie

Last night we watched 'Pirates of the Carabean' for the first time for my sister's birthday.
It was really good and very funny. I liked it alot





Jack Sparrow was really funny.


It was strange seeing Legolas without blond, long flowing locks.
Maybe he thought he could catch Elizabeth better that way...
Or maybe he did it for the movie

Latin is a language
As dead as dead can be
First it killed the Romans
And now its killing me

I thought this very appropriate since I just ordered my new Latin book!

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high over vales and hills,
When at once I saw a crowd, A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretch never-ending line Along the margin of a bay
Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing there heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay
In such jocund company:
I gazed- and gazed-but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
 which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
 And dances with the daffodils
        -William Wordsworth

Another Trip..... To Sydney

Last week The girls and I stayed at our cousins house in Sydney while Mum and Dad were in Melbourne for a conference. It was lots of fun. I stayed at my Friends house for a sleep-over and we did each others hair. It ended up looking really cool. We also went to the "Family Show". There were some dressed up geese that looked really funny. Mikaela won the days record for staying on the "Mad Bull" the longest.

A couple more quotes...



Everyone seems to like quotes, so I found some more.

The task ahead of us is never as big as the power behind us.
-Unknown by me

Don't let you worries get the best of you; remember Moses started out as a basket case.
-Also unknown by me

You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him. (In this cas Sam Gamgee would be very big)
-Unkown by me
No-one ever heart there eysight by looking on the bright side of life
-Anonynous (This is my favourite)

Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

-Again, unkown by me

The Secret Zoo



I have recently been reading "The Secret Zoo" it is really good. A friend suggested it and now I am too! Apparently it was published last year or something. Anywho, this is what the back of the book says:


'Noah's sister Megan has disapeared, and he thinks the Clarksville City Zoo has something to do with it. The Animals are acting strangely, leaving cryptic messages for Noah and his friends Ella and Richie. Following these clues, They soon find themselves lost in a secret world more asstonishing-and dangerous-than they ever imagined. Befriending Polar Bears, Penguins, and rhinos on the way, Noah and his friends embark on a wild adventure to find Megan and bring her home.'


Well, I hope you get a chance to read it!

Baby Guinea Pigs


Yes! More Guinea Pigs. Aren't they cute?!! The black one is skunkels and the other one is Jersey.
When they are big enough we are going to sell them but they are ours to play with 'til then!

Misty Mountains

These, are the Misty Mountains. (Yes, they don't only exsist in The Lord of the Rings, just incase you were wondering.) They are quite close to our Hobbit Hol- I mean house. only about half a days journey as the nazgal fly.
-Hollie
P.S Okay, Maybe they're not the real thing. Pretty close though.
these are the mountains when not so misty
