Talk about Summer

Hi guys! What’s up? The first thing I want to say is… IT’S SUMMER!!!!!!! Ok; now is the time when everybody is in flip flops and are basking in the sun. I don’t mind doing that, I mean I LOVE wearing flip flops and I think it’s relaxing to go out in the sun. But there’s an issue for me… ☹

Lately, whenever I’ve been going out in the warming sun my skin begins to get EXTREMELY itchy because of my Eczema. For those of you out there who do not know what it is, it’s a skin illness and you have dry skin and is always itchy. Sometimes it can be major or it’s not so much of a big deal. And here’s another reason. I do not tolerate heat well, for me even London is ABSOLUTELY scorching!!! I always feel fainty! And last of all … (this may break most of people’s hearts who are reading this so I am going to bring it easy on you)… I HATE SUMMER!!!!!!!!! Also, I have a perfectly good reason to hate it, in summer I am more, sick than I am in winter.

Any way enough complaining about summer! Let’s go onto the main two reasons I chose to talk to you today. As a lot of you may know, this month for Muslims it is Ramadan. It is the month of fasting. Fasting is when you do not drink or eat from sunrise to sundown. As I am a child I am no obliged to do it, however I decide to do some of the day. Well, that’s all you need to know!

The second thing I want to talk to you about is McDonald’s! I am sure this subject will get you all jumping up on your feet. On Thursday, my mum and I were in Greenwich as we were on our way to my guitar lesson. There is a McDonald’s there and it was an INCREDIBLY hot day, therefore we decided to buy a Raspberry Ripple Ice Cooler. It was SCRUMPTIOUS! A couple days after, we realised we could make our own ice cooler! Here is a small recipe:

Ingredients:

–         Vanilla ice cream

–         Ice cubes

–         A berry flavoured squash or syrup

Method:

Put the ice cream in with the ice. Blend for a bit. Pour the squash or syrup into the blender and carry on blending. Blend until it is like a sort of liquid. Pour into a glass and enjoy! 😊

So that’s it for today! AU REVOIR!!!

P.S  I want you to say happy birthday to three people in my class who are Lewis, Jayvan  and Anthony whose  all birthdays were recent! 😊

Talk about holidays

Hi guys! What’s up? I AM FINALLY DOING ANOTHER BLOG POST!!! The reason I haven’t done one in so long is that, I haven’t had any exciting things going on in my life.

I wrote in capitals because I am so angry at myself. I have realised that even if I don’t have anything exciting going on, I can still talk to you lot! All this time, I could have shown you how to make a Kreative Project or just say HI!

Anyway, enough of the shouting. I haven’t dragged myself to my laptop and made my poor fingers work SO hard and press the keys to MOAN! Certainly not! I am here to be happy and talk.

You know how I said I haven’t had anything exiting going on? Well something exciting FINALLY happened! YAAAAAAAAAY! 😊

Once I tell you guys what happened, you’re going to think that I’m crazy that I haven’t mentioned this earlier on in the week and I am truly sorry.

From the 4th of April to the 13th I was in the SOUTH of FRANCE

Another reason I haven’t written on my blog about France, is that I was enjoying the countryside and also was seeing my family and spending days with them.

In case you were wondering which family I have there, I have family from my mum’s side. My mum and I go there once every year mainly to see my grandparents. I call them Mamy and Papy.

So now that I have told you the main reason I went there, I’m going to tell you a bit about what I did one day with my aunty and uncle!

First of all, they took my mum and I to a restaurant. We all ordered burgers, except my uncle, who ordered a sort of a piece of raw meat, with raw egg and some salad. I have absolutely no idea how he could eat raw meat and egg, but then again we all have different tastes. 😊

Moving on to the second thing I did on my day out with my aunty and uncle!

Sadly, I will not tell you everything we did, as it was such an active day.

Later in the day, we went to a small restaurant called Le Petit Jardin, which in English Means, The Small Garden. We ate DELICIOUS desserts, which filled up our stomachs! I ordered a crepe covered in Nutella, my mum took the same with a sort of pink whip cream and my uncle and aunty both took a big shell with some ice cream, fruit and the pink whip cream.

Well this, I’m afraid is about it I’m going to tell you about my day but I want you to all know that I had a great time in France and had a lovely Easter holiday and that I hope you had a great one too! 😊

So that’s it for today! AUREVOIR!

P.S. I Hope you all join me in wishing Claire (my teacher assistant) a very happy 21st birthday, as it was hers yesterday!

Pancake day!

Hi guys! What’s up? The first thing I’d like to say is … HAPPY PANCAKE DAY!!!!!! Yes, you heard me it’s that GLOURIOUS day of the year when we get to eat a whole meal of JUST pancakes! Just thinking of it makes my mouth water! Without no doubt, I can guarantee you that homemade pancakes are 1000 times better that those ones that you get in the supermarket. Therefore, with no hesitation, I am going to tell you how to make 10 pancake in just 30 minutes!!!!  🙂

You will need a:

Wisk or a wooden spoon

Measuring jug

A mixing bowl

A frying pan

Ingredients:

. 100g of plain flour

. 2 large eggs

. 300ml milk

. A few drops of vanilla essence

. Butter for frying

 

Method

  1. Sieve the flour into the mixing bowl and both off the eggs and slowly pour the milk in. Using the whisk, mix everything! Your batter should be a sort of thick liquid that you can pour.

TIP: make sure your batter has no lumps!

 

  1. Put your frying pan on the hob. It doesn’t matter how big it is; it’s your choice in sizing! Turn the hob on medium heat and let it warm up. As soon as it’s warm, put a little bit of butter on the pan and swirl it around.
  2. Once your pan is ready, pour some batter in and leave it to cook on one side for around a minute

 

  1. FLIP IT!!!

 

  1. Cook the pancake on the other side for another minute. You should now have a golden-brown treat!

 

  1. Repeat steps 2-6 until you have finished all your batter! Now you have the choice of topping! 🙂

 

Topping ideas:

. ‘The Classic’- Lemon juice and sugar (I find this on revolting!)

. ‘The Brain Freeze’ – Ice Cream and any dessert sauce

 And finally, the one that I made up: ‘The Ella Berry’ – Nutella and strawberries,

 

So that’s it for today! I hope you enjoyed your pancakes and next time try my recipe! AUREVOIR!
