Have you ever had the feeling you are having a bad day? It all started on a great winter's day and we were in Hanmer staying in a bach beside a pine forest.
It was really weird because it was a lovely little house and it had a massively oversized backyard. We were definitely going to play in that backyard.
We were in the house playing monopoly. I really wanted to go outside. So I wandered off to play ball tag with my cousin Jack and my brother Tom. I was in, and I was counting to 10. They sprinted around the corner of the building.
I was thinking to myself what mischief are they going to get up to? I found Jack in someone else's property. I told you they were going to get up to mischief.
Next they headed for a massive clump of green flax. I couldn't find them in there so I went to look on the footpath. I could hear the mischief makers noises. I was wondering what lay ahead.
Then something caught my eye. It looked like a kid, then realised it was Jack. I was about to throw the ball at him because I was still in.
Somehow I accidently dropped the ball. It was pretty small and I probably had butter fingers that doesn't help either. The ball was rolling into the middle of the road.
I saw something coming right for it, I didn’t want my ball to be ripped and broken so I sprinted for it. Now I could see it properly. It was a car. I did the wrong thing, I dived for the ball and that was the worst thing of it all.
Well despite the landing I felt fine except I was a bit dizzy. I thought to myself could this day get any worse? Well it just did.
I walked back to the house thinking that i was pretty lucky to be alive.
Then guess what i found in my bedroom? My brother was digging into my lollies. He pretty much ate all of them.
So how did I react you ask? I took a deep breath and I carried on, although I felt like a volcano about to explode. I learnt a lesson to carry on and just deal with a bad day otherwise it could get worse.
The next day, I Woke up at 6 o’clock to my cousins screaming and I just knew it was going to be a bad day.
