Monday 29th of September


Hello there diary, how are you. I am good considering what I got for my birthday present from my dad. I got a notebook, which will make me a bestseller author. Anyway, today I had to face another crazy ideas of Mr. Botheritís. HE WANTS US TO WRITE LETTERS TO BROOKFIELD. I wrote one anyway, I donít know why but Cass, Em did too. Guess we were sort of excited by the fact that we are writing to them and they will be writing back (if we are lucky). I donít know who Iím writing to so that sort of makes it bit mysterious and thrilling.


Wish me luck that I will get a reply, otherwise it will just make me look stupid.


Bye and Iíll let you know if I get a reply.

Hey guess what I got a reply from one of the boys at Brookfield. He seemed nice so Iím relieved. He said happy birthday for me as well so there you go. Thatís saying something. I think Iíll keep writing to him and hope that he will send back something. His name is Seb Mantegna. I think Seb is short term for Sebastian. I really like this name, when you pronounce it, it feels sophisticated and clever if you know what I mean.


My hands are really sore since Iím trying to do two things at once. Writing in the diary so you know whatís going on and also writing back to him. Iím telling him what happened on my birthday morning and that no one remembered it was my birthday (no one in my family).


I have this feeling that this guy is really nice andÖ you know what Iím talking about, so bye.

Dear Diary, I wish you can see this picture that Seb drew for me. It is amazing he is so artistic and talented, Iím really jealous. Heís funny as well, he wants me to set of his schoolís fire alarm straight after lunch on Tuesday next week. So he will pass his test.


Iím thinking a plan to set the alarm off and Iíve just thought of a great plan but Iím not going to tell you because someone might read this. So Iíll keep it to myself but Iíll sort things out with Cass and Em.


Tuesday 7th of October


Hello there, Iím in a good mood because I have fulfilled my job for Seb and set the alarm off. He was pretty impressed of me but heís not getting away with it. I gave him a task to do. It is toÖ



o At 1p.m. tomorrow go the refrigerator section of the Harvey Norman store in Castle Towers
o Find a sign hat says: THIS WEEK ONLY! POLAR BEAR%FRIDGES-GET THEM WHILE THEYíRE COLD
o By 2p.m. the sign must be standing outside the World of Pets Pet Shop.
o The sign must say: THIS WEEK ONLY! POLAR BEARS-GET THEM WHILE THEYíRE COLD
o Send me a photo of this

This exam boy, Seb has wonderfully done the job but has once again asked me to set of sprinklers at his school at 11a.m. yesterday. So I did, and I wasnít that hard. He said he wanted to meet in person but Iím not sure if I should or not. Wish you can talk or write so you can advise me but donít worry so much Iíve still got Cass and Em.


I got him to do another assignment, which was to tie ribbons on trees in the reserves, and he has done them beautifully. I really liked it.


He didnít want to do his Science exam so we had to do a favour for him again (I mean Cass, Em and me when I say ďWEĒ). With a little bit of help from everyone we stole the paper. I think we just rock.


I have got this plan worked out for Seb meeting and me up. Iím getting him to come to a cafť and weíll have to recognise each other before
