Memories

From April '04 to May '05 our family travelled around Australia. Mum and Dad made us write a diary while we travelled. I hated doing it then, but I do like looking back on what I wrote. At least, whatever of it I can comprehend. There is absolutely NO punctuation whatsoever and very little spelling that is correct. I will do my best, however, to translate.

Sunday 4/4/04

We had a fire and I rode my bike and I went swimming and played with my friends. Our friends got here, lots of fires, my chain on my bike came off, I did my bible study, my feet got muddy. We are at Charlie Morland.



That was my first entry. You have to cut me some slack on this one. I was seven! The next one is practically incomprehensible. Something about dress-ups and lots of prickles (prikls) and a bird doing it's business on my shoulder. Anyway, I will continue to translate- or try...

What a gorgeous little girl you were Jordan. I must confess, it's how I still think of you - little, very blonde, in the middle of everything going on and often quite outspoken. But look at you now - so gorgeous still! And such grand punctuation! I have a Christmas card sitting on my kitchen bench, addressed to you and your beautiful family. I may even actually post it, but I have a feeling it will be horribly late. In the meantime, please wish everyone a very festive and merry Christmas. Thank Mum for me again for all her help and tell her I have received my Sonlight catalogue and all I can say is What the???? Love to you lot from us lot!!
