I love my pink pjs, so soft and so warm, I wear them all day from dusk till dawn
No matter what my mother says, to me my pink pjs are the best.
Huggable, snug gable friends till the end, such a friendship no one could bend.
But then wash day came, so I took them off , into the washer my mother did put.
Then she hung them out to dry in the wind. Then the weather took a change for the worst. The clouds grew dark and then they burst.
Down came the rain hard and strong. Wetting my pink pjs as the rain carried on.
All day long I waited for the sun , I felt so sad I was not having fun.
“O mommy, o mommy when will the sun come out . I cant stand watching my poor pink pjs being blown about.” Then suddenly I felt a warm sunny glow, as the sun came out and put on a show.
Drying up all the clothes on the line, including my pink pjs and boy did they shine!
As soon as my mommy brought in my pjs, as quick as a flash I put them on.
Snug and warm as I fell asleep, I promised myself I will wear them for at least a week.

I found myself sitting in my room playing games on my computer. When suddenly I started to feel hungry.” Mommy!!” I shouted. She appeared looking furious that I screamed so loud, and then she said “How dare you scream at me!” “Sorry mother. I’m just so hungry, may I please have a burger and a cream soda?” “Yes you may “she said.
(I have my burger and cream soda so I began to eat hungrily). When I was done eating I drank up my cream soda, but all of a sudden I heard a small squeal and I noticed it was coming from the soda can. So I turn the can upside down and out tumbled an alien!! I screamed so loud my mother came and she said “what is the meaning of this?” so all I just managed to say was “I thinking I saw a mouse”.
My mother began rummaging through clothes drawers, and she even managed to peep through a small hole in the wall. Then she said “I don’t see any mouse.” So she stormed out of my room and went to take her afternoon nap. Then I did something so absurd only a crazy person would do, I touched the alien! I thought I would to turn into an alien too, but nothing happened the alien just sat there and stared at me!
Then something astonishing, happened the alien began to talk! The alien said “please don’t hurt me” then I said “no I will not hurt you” so the little alien jumped into his hand and they fell asleep.
I woke up. And then I noticed the alien was not in my room. I feared my mother had caught him and killed him, but then I noticed that she wasn’t here either so I went searching for the alien and when I went into the kitchen I found that the fridge was open so I took a peep inside, most of the food was missing but I bet my mom wouldn’t notice because she never knows what’s in the fridge. And she calls herself a mother. Then I caught a glimpse of the alien eating on the counter. He looked up, looking alarmed so I moved slowly across the kitchen and now the alien was two times bigger than he was before.
So the next morning I tried to look him up on the internet, and guess what, I found millions of websites that could be used, so I typed in the words. ‘Why does an alien grow bigger?’. And then it showed a website and I clicked on the website and it said that the reason why the alien is growing bigger is because it is eating food. An alien isn’t supposed to eat human food otherwise they keep on growing until they get as big as you. And an alien can last up to millions of years without food.
I stood there astounded, looking at my alien, and then from that moment on I decided that I would never let him set foot near the fridge ever again. And I also decided that I should also tell my parents and friends about him at school. So then it was settled I would tell friends and family about him, my cute not-so-little alien.
10 years later. I still have my little cuddly and he was super quiet for all these years, he never said a thing. I did tell my friends and family about him. So you see, anything can happen at any time, you wont know when, where and what will happen, so all you have to do is be prepared.
On the 4 March 2011 we went to Goudini Spa. I had so much fun at Goudini Spa. It was the best day ever! The only people who went were me, mommy, daddy and that’s about it. I had NO goggles, but my daddy went to buy a pair and they were R71, can you believe it! R71! At first I thought we should try buying it because that was the only pair of goggles in the whole shop. On Saturday the first thing I done was to keep on asking if I could swim, but my daddy said no because we needed to go to Worcester to get mosquito repellent for the mosquitos that were biting us the night before, so I could not swim until we got home and tested the mosquito repellent, THEN I only started to swim. When I got into the water I almost drowned because someone accidentally pushed me under the water by mistake, because her brother was hitting her the whole time and she fell over me and pushed me down. On Sunday we packed and went home to change then we went to Aunty Aziza’s 60th birthday.
