A Day in the Life

By Zoe

I awoke from my slumber at 3:15 am I awoke because I heard the swooshing of my LED lights falling they were wrapped around me, I stayed in bed for 30 min waiting to fall back into my sleep then I felt a jolt to get up and fix them I had already fixed them the previous night but I got up and stretched my legs, my legs were all wobbly so I stud up nice and slowly then I felt along the wall to find the blue tack when I had found it I grabbed the LED lights and stuck them on, I had no light so I had to feel along the wall for the other blue tack and the pin once I had them all up I checked the blue tack to make sure it was secure by the time I got to sleep it was 4:30 I think.

Then again I awoke to my noisy beeping alarm telling me it was 7:45 I turned to my side and switched it of then just like that I was asleep.

15 minutes later my dad came in and awoke me from my slumber by opening the blind he told me to get up I didn’t because I was exhausted from the night before I told him all about it, he patted me on the head and he went to go into his room to get dressed, I heard my brother making his way down stairs to bring out the dog, I still stayed in bed while I was in bed I was pushing of the covers with my feet then my dad came in and told me I had to get up so he took the rest of the covers of me and I was cold, He grabbed my hand and helped me out of bed, I put my feet on the fury carpet I walked over to my wardrobe I was still a bit cold I sat on the ground for 2 minutes then stood back up because I heard my dad. I took of my pyjamas and put on my favourite baggy t-shirt that my dad had given me it was from the world cup in 1998 , then I took my black baggy zip up hoodie popped it on and got my baggy blue denim jeans and my green socks and I sat on the top of the stairs putting on my socks and my dog charley was whining so I called her she tilted her head then my dad took her outside and I ran down to the kitchen my bother Sam was doing some of his maths homework then my dad came back in I put honey on my wheet-a-bix that my dad had put out then I told him about the James Joyce story’s that we are doing today he said; well that will be fun. Then I left the kitchen table as I was meeting the stairs my mam came in from her run so I quickly rushed up stairs and brushed my teeth and brushed my hair came back down popped on my vans shoes grabbed my coat and bag and rushed out the door.
