Best time with my family – Going to Greymouth


October 26, 2015 by lucy@central

The best time with my family would be going to Greymouth for 2 weeks. It was during school so every kid there was at school. My dad used to be a coal miner, so I got given some coal when my dad and his friend went into a coal mine. We stayed with our friends, Tess and Barry. Their dog, Socks was old and slow, but friendly and sleepy. I liked playing with Socks because she was friendly and would follow me around. My mum and I had Subway and McDonald’s most of the time. I liked this trip because I liked having a time off school. But when I came back, I had to share what happened, so on the way back, I made a book. When I came back I was sad because I wanted to go home as I didn’t want to share what happened, but luckily, my teacher was Mrs Dodds, who gives out lollies at the end of the day. This all happened in 2011, so I only faintly remember it. The picture here is the Greymouth bridge.

    Hello Lucy, that’s so cool that you got to go to vacation during school, my parents would never let me do that. This a link to my class’s blog and we’re writing a blog about foods in our country. We are also asking bloggers about their country’s food. I just would like to ask, what do you typically eat for lunch? Thank you. ~Rarcallana

      Hello Rarcallana. Thanks for the link to your blog. Isn’t a bit mean of your parents not to let you out of school once and a while? Anyway, what do I typically eat for lunch? I mostly eat a sandwich, but sometimes I order my lunch at school. At home, other than a sandwich, I like to have a toasted sandwich, or even takeaways like fish & chips and subway. In NZ, we bring our lunches from home, unless we order. We also have fruit at schools, which is a rare opportunity. One of the NZ foods are Weet-bix (it is a breakfast food), and here is a page to describe it:
