The trick on Arabella worked spectacularly well! She followed Theo round to our pile of leaves, cooing at him all the time and then we burst out – with ear-splitting screeches. She was so scared she fell over backwards and got her bottom wedged in the washing basket. She scuttled about the garden like a tortoise until her mum freed her.
We’ve had a great half term. We went to an activity swim at the leisure centre on Tuesday with lots of floats and inflatables. But mostly we’ve been getting ready for Halloween on Sunday. And there’s lots to plan. I’m having a Halloween party and everyone has to dress up in a scary way. Ben’s coming of course and some other friends from our class – or should I say, fiends from our class.
The gargoylz have been helping and we’ve promised them their own party when everyone else has gone home. We’ve been making paper ghosts and shiny skeletons to decorate my bedroom. I left a skeleton on Jessica’s pillow and waited for her screams. But Mum found it first. She screamed really loudly so the trick worked in a way. Bart’s going to burp up lots of spiders for us so my bedroom will be Scary! Scary!! Scary!!! That will keep Jessica out.
Bart was wondering if anyone has some Halloween jokes for him. Ben has one.
Q. Why didn’t the skeleton go to the party?
A. Because he had no body to go with!
Bart likes that one and so does Rufus!
Abel’s joke is -
Q. Why do witches wear name badges?
A. So you can tell which witch is which!
Don’t forget to post your Halloween jokes too.
Right, we’re off to the kitchen to practise making witch’s guts and eyeballs. We’re going to use spaghetti and lots of gungy tomato sauce that looks like blood, with mozzarella cheese balls on top. Yummy and yucky!
