The Tomboy's Tale

*Found in a notebook I'd given The Tomboy to use during our time away*


Monday 1st August 2011

Today, we went on holiday, and it was to Los Angeles in America! Today was a 32 hour day! We had to go on two seperate flights. The first was 8 hours long and we went back 5 hours. On that flight, we were given pillows and blankets. On the back of the seats, there were computer-style things that, during the flight, you could watch movies, play games or listen to music. One of the games was called Onflight Trivia. On this, you had to answer questions while the clock went down, starting at 600 and going down 50 at a time. I made the leaderboard twice in each flight. The first flight went to Atlanta. We hired a car that was dark blue and drove to our holiday house. We spent ages trying to open the door at midnight, and eventually had to ask a neighbour to help us get in. He managed it and we apologised for waking him up. In the dark, we found our beds and fell asleep.

I'd say that was the start of a very big adventure!

Good start to the holiday then and fancy having 6 extra hours in a day. What would we do in those extra moments.
I love your disclaimer at the bottom, Mel, made me smile

Brilliant piece of work The Tomboy! Sounds like the hours flying went by nice and fast. Bet you couldn't believe it when you couldn't get the door to open at your house - how embarrassing!

Certainly does sound like the start of a big adventure.
We had a similar situation on trying to enter our American holiday home!!

What a great way to sum up your travels, Mel. The Tomboy's story is just so cute, and so was your disclaimer. ;o)

What a fantastic start to your American adventure for The Tomboy.

Hope she keeps it up. She'll have a wicked show and tell when she gets back to school.

The Tomboy tells a Very Good Story, Mel!
The start of your American Adventure sounds wonderful - I'm sure the rest will be fabulous too.
