At new year I did go to London with Martha and Rob to see some puppets at the theatre in War Horse. It were very good but the osses didn’t look much like Clovelly donkeys.
The next day we did go to see some people playing a game they do call ‘football’. It was very odd and there be lots of shouting.
Now I be back in Lincolnshire where Janet Few (Branch 6) and Chris Braund (Branch 2) do be visiting.

I just be back from a few days in Germany. We did go by train on a very long trip.
I saw the Cathedral. It be a bit bigger than St Anne’s at Bucks.
Here is a view of Cologne from the top of a very high up building. Don’t look like there be many fish in that there water.
There were lots of padlocks couple had put on this bridge. I did think I should have brought one for Mary and me to leave.
There be very calm water in Cologne – this doesn’t look like any boat I seen before.
Rob and Martha had some tea. I didn’t have a very comfy seat ‘ere.
Here be the Cathedral again with Martha, on the roof of some art gallery. It all be very odd.
Then we did look at the Christmas markets. It all be very busy and noisy and there were some very funny music there.
Merry Christmas from Captain James.

Yesterday I went on a train to visit Lincoln again and went back to the cinema, this time to see Life of Pi. There be a boat and lots of water. I never seen one of them tigers down Clovelly though.
Today I have packed my bags and my passport as tomorrow I do be off to Germany with Martha and Rob (Branch 6). I do hope they remember to bring me back.

Today I helped Martha do some baking. She made a banoffee pie and clearly needed a bit of help. I almost ended up in the mixer! Sadly I didn’t get to taste any.
I helped sort out the Christmas decorations too, can you spot the interloper?!

Today I helped Rob and Martha do their present wrapping. Here I am wrapping a parcel.
I had to be careful though – I nearly ended up wrapped up under the tree myself!
It is a bit chilly up in Lincolnshire so we lit a lovely open fire. I nearly warmed up rather too much!

After school I was off to Lincoln to visit the Christmas Lights. There be a few more than those back in Clovelly.
It were a bit rainy but we walked up a very steep hill, called Steephill to see the Cathedral. Here I am walking up the hill. I did get a bit wet. Nothing like being out to sea though.
Here I am with Rob by the Christmas Tree at the Cathedral.
Walking back down the hill was a bit easier. I did see lots of cobbles like there be at Clovelly.
To dry off, Rob and Martha took me to the cinema to see The Hobbit. There be lots of people here who do look just like Chris.

I have travelled up to Lincolnshire to see Rob and Martha Barnard (branch 6) and today I went to school with Rob. I did think Rob was a bit old for school, but off we went. I had a very busy day. I did some reading about the Egyptians – they be about even longer ago than me.
They kept be proper busy building something they do call a ‘Mario Kart’ I couldn’t see no osses about to pull it though.
I think everyone be impressed with my work – I even won the Writing Star.
I did some marking and used some thing called a laptop. It be a bit large for my lap though.
I played monopoly and cards, and went on the wii. This be some new fangled device I never seen before. I’m not sure I be so good at it.
It all got a bit loud so I borrowed some ear defenders until everyone went home.
Here I am pretending to be a Christmas Angel. I am not sure a halo would suit me.
I had a lot of fun – thank you class 10 for letting me join in. I think I be off for a busy evening now.
