London and it’s many rainy attractions…

We have come to London for half-term and despite the grizzly weather it has been really fun!

We are not here to see the Queen, in fact Mum is trying to avoid most of the crowds but we’re having a good time anyway. We have been to the Great British Library and Coram Fields which is this really cool park thing where you can only go in if you are with a kid, and they have a zip wire and big playgrounds. Also, in the summer, they have a shallow pool filled with water with little things ¬†that spurt water….. We like fountains. If the weather gets better, Mum is going to take us to this amazing fountain on the South Bank which is concentric squares which shoot water up at different times and even though it’s freezing. I like the South Bank, they have a Wagamamas and normally there is cool things going on along the side so it is well worth visiting!

In the day, we went to this place called Highgate Cemetery and because no one else was stupid enough to go out in the pouring rain we got the tour guide all to ourselves and he was so good!!! It was really interesting and it turns out that he was in the Guinness Book of World Records for going round the globe in a double-decker and for driving a double decker on only two wheels! Also the cemetery itself was really intense and cool; we saw this little grave and apparently it belonged to this man who was this massive criminal mastermind of the Victorian Ages but he didn’t believe in violence so he was just this really clever con-man who befriended these super rich people and then robbed them without them ever knowing! He was never caught because even though all the police suspected him, they could never catch him in the act!! This was the guy James Moriarty was based on ( Moriarty is Sherlock Holmes’s arch-nemesis). There is an amazing Sherlock Holmes programme on every year and they do a few episodes but it has Benedict Cumberbatch in and he is a great actor along with Martin Freeman A.K.A Watson.

Tonight, we went and saw this poet called John Hegley who does quite comedic poems and he was fab-mazing! He signed some books for us and read some brilliant poems/songs…….. It’s really late now so I better go to bed other wise I will resemble a zombie tomorrow morning!

P.s If you are going to Kings Cross in London, be sure to look out for Platform Nine and Three quarters from Harry Potter! They have got a Hogwarts trolley going through the wall we all had our pictures taken with it! ūüôā

Limericks

I like limericks. I used to know a cool one about a crumpet but I can’t remember it any more…… Never mind though! I made my own limerick:

There was a young man named Phillip,

who painted a cow in acrylic.

The cow kicked him hard,

right out of the yard,

and that was the end of young Phillip !!

If you know any cool ( or rubbish ) limericks, please post them on comments. ūüôā

Something About Nothing

Here is a small poem about nothing and blogging:

         Nothing and the Blogging Owl

  Here is a poem  about nothing, sitting on my blog.

 It smells like nif and pibblesquonk , sitting on my blog.

It is the colour of nothing above the mighty Owl,

nothing and the blogginng owl, sitting on my blog.

As you can see,  this Blog post is about nothing much! Did you know that everything is nothing, so that means this post is about everything and nothing at the very same time ? It is very amazing really.

Here is a poem about Everything:

                   Everything is everything

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Everything is……

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Everything is……

      Bumble bees, jam pots,  America and Threes

     Jelly fish, Moomins, and red Iscoceles.

    But the most important everything in the very big wide world

                      is OWLS

There you go then, I have given you everything you could ever want and nothing at the same time. You have all tired me out, so I am going now .

Bye bye,  Owly xxxxx
