I now have an editotial team who, as you can see have been bribed with a superior choice in chocolate biscuits: their words not mine. They go gathering material and we discuss whether it is strong enough or whether it needs holding until we have confirmation from a second source!
Our first report involves Maya making a trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night (floor was clear) and then when she came back the
floor was blocked by Beth who had sleep fallen onto the floor and had to be woken up!
Tilly danced across her room on the way to the 'fridge'! Well that was what she told me first of all, actually it was the loo, tripped and fell (accompanied by the usual amateur dramatic scream) and bruised her knee. Ice pack and lots of attention, and a reconstruction of the scene more than once by Lucy, seemed to speed recovery, whilst Harriet regarded the whole thing as totally underwhelming.
Theo Le T gets paranoid when anyone in his room sprays a deoderant because he’s afraid the fire alarm might go off. On the subject of deoderants Bradley, Zac and Theo C were quizzing Ellie and Ivy about their favourite deoderant. The cutting answer was “Nothing you’ll ever have heard of!” Thinking inside,’It would take more than the right deoderant for you to be good enough for us.’ Toss of the hair at this point and walk away!
Arlo and Zac have a private spoofing battle going on; the latest round involved Arlo hiding under a duvet in the middle of their room. He leapt up when Zac entered and shocked him so much that he stumbled backwards landing sprawled over a pile of suitcases! We look forward to Zac’s next prank!
The dressing gown girls were so busy styling their hair that they didn’t realise that everyone else had disappeared for breakfast. Luckily for them Miss Hughes thought the dining looked a little empty and shot upstairs before the canteen shut! When hearing there was a photo shoot after lunch in the garden, Joe E refused to appear until he had gelled and spiked his hair!
The greatest challenge so far for Team JB has definitely been Jacob’s Ladder. You have to have a team or you cannot make it to the top: 40 foot high. First to go were the three confident males: Nathan, Zac, and Joe H, who soon realised they had bitten off more than they could chew. To be fair, they did make it all the way and certainly learned a thing or two about encouragement, not limiting yourself, but it took them 30 mins. On the second attempt three ladies: Ivy, Natalie and Ella, did it in 10 mins. Girl Power!
Sorry canteen pic in wrong place and no time to correct it. Don't worry about food, there's plenty, usually on Ben Taylor's plate whilst I swear Joe Ellis' food doesn't touch the sides he such a fast finisher!
