Ringing the church bells was awesome!! Why did we ring the bells? The answer is to call the people to church. They did come. I know because I saw them in the church singing hymns. It was really loud ringing the bells. You could hear them all over Hambledon. We wen to the very top of he belfry. We saw a bell ring. It was VERY LOUD! Children are not usually allowed up there because it is dangerous but Great Uncle Fred said that I could because I am special!

The Torch Light Procession was very cool because you got to hold a torch with real fire on the end of it. I saw somebody with their fire on their stick. You got to put out the fire in a bucket of water. I marched with George, Matthew, Uncle Julian, Auntie Kate, Elizabeth, Mummy and Daddy. The bucket of water went SISSSSSSSSS when you put the torch in it.
Today I played with my cousins George and Matthew. Grandad made us a bow and arrow each out of a hazelnut tree. We spent the afternoon practising shooting stuff. We went for a walk in the woods and found a rabbit skull. Daddy got cow poo on his pants. I make a book about Granny's garden. We went to a sweet shop and choose a bag of sweets. I choose a lot. It's really really really really really really nice in England. Granny and Grandad are really nice!
