I didn’t mean to kill her

The sun is starting to cast a yellow and orange tinge over the New Zealand high country. The view is stunning and I can see the mounts all around me.  I am with my great pig hunting dog called Among Us. We are preparing ourselves to go on a hunt for some pigs, but I didn’t mean to kill her. 


We set off on our way, the sky had been dipped in bright blue paint all the way to the horizon with not a white fluffy cloud to be seen. There were plenty of pigs and before I could say “Where is the pig Among Us?” 

Among Us was bailing up a huge sow but Among Us is 400 meters away up a big slate hill on a ledge. I started on my way up the big slate to get Among Us and the huge sow. The noise of the sow trying to get away was terrible. There is slate flying at me from the ledge where Among Us is. When I get there the pig is nowhere to be seen but Among Us is sitting there waiting for me.  


Me and Among Us are on top of the hill and we see another pig in the distance so we go and get it because I want to shoot a pig to eat. Among Us can not smell the pig so I get close and then I shoot it. As soon as I shoot the pig, Among Us runs up and looks at it, then runs away, then I go to look at it and…


I am in the high country in New Zealand  pig hunting with my dog called Among us and I have accidentally shot a woman because I thought it was a pig. I don’t know what to do but I think I should hide the body and leave so no one will find out. But, there was nowhere to hide the body in the open tussock plains. Then I remember the slate hill, so I take the body and hide it in the slate hill. When I was walking back to the truck I found Among Us and she was balling up the big sow, so I shot the sow. Now I have got what I wanted so I go home telling myself,  I didn’t mean to kill her.

my house

My house sits atop a hill, far from the road. The silvery gravel driveway has a green swampy stream flowing beside it to the bottom of the hill. The house is clad in creamy grey boards. The aluminum windows are white and blend in and the big blood red roof that shines all year round.  With a ginormous garden wrapping around the house with its light greens and all the roses that look stunning when in bloom. With the big deck that gets lots of sun in the summer. With the corrugated iron garage that was a deer shed. All the dust that comes into the house in the summer from the balers, rakes and trucks come up to the farm.

My favorite place is the farm because I can go hunting for rabbits and ducks. It is exciting to get something to bring home and show mum and dad. It is fun to go on my go kart that feels like you are driving a car with how fast you are going because you are open to the wind in your face. The best thing is going in the tractor and going to cultivate the paddock, starting and stopping like a robot.

my weekend

This weekend I had a friend over and we went to Twizel.  When we got there we take our stuff in and the we played lazier tag then we went to the supermarket and we got lollies and we went back the we did nerf wars then we had tea. Then we went on a walk with the dog near the lake. The next day we made tunnels in the lime heap. Then we went to the lake for a kayak and a little swim thin we went to the pool for a little bit then we went home.

100 word challenge

It is the winter of 1952 and the police arrive at a crime scene in Beverly hills. The victim is in hospital after being attacked while they were sleeping. There were dog handlers trying to find the criminal but there was no trace. When Tom the policeman went inside he said it felt like there was someone watching his every step. When Tom went to go talk to the victim the nurse said he felt really ill. The last words he said was LOOK IN THE BEDSIDE CUPBOARD. When Tom looked in the bedside cupboard there was a hidden trap door.

week at tech

At tech I was in hard material first we had to get our license to work in the class first we had to plan our our protect which was a pen/pencil holder out of treated pine wood. Then we made a puzzle and then we made key rings pendents out of aluminium, MDF  and plastic then I made a other puzzle out of wood. That is my week at tech.

Camp writing

The cracking of the campfire filled the air and the smoke floated up like it was lighter than air, the sky was orange and slowly fading away. All of the parents, students and three instructors were there, sitting in a moon shaped coliseum around the roaring fire while we sang folk songs. It was terribly funny when we made household objects and furniture and they made sounds when one of the instructors went round their fake house. The smores were great when we let the marshmallow go on fire and get black and squishy and when we put them between the chocolate bottom biscuits and the melted chocolate. It was so good. We also played charades and there was a log they did there charades on and we said it was a toilet. On the way back to the cabins we had to do a conga line back through the trees in the dark while we saw flashes of light once and a while in the thick undergrowth. Which was Waitaki Valley School playing spotlight on the last day of camp.





driving the tractor

In the holidays me and my dad were I the tractor braking up the cow poo so the grass can grow though it. Dad had done most of the paddock and there was a triangle left. Then he put me in the drivers set and tolled me what to do and I finished the paddock he tolled me to drive around the paddock and find the bits that needed done again. It was so fun to drive the tractor around the paddock and do a job in the tractor too.

Who my hero is

A famous person that is my hero is Richie Mccaw because he is great at getting over the ball and good at stealing it. He also gets lots of turn overs. He is my hero  because I want to be like him stealing the ball, turning it over, be a explosive run, powerful player and play for the all blacks.


curling and ice skating

Last Friday we went to Dunedin and we went ice skating and curling. When we got there I was excited to do it. we had morning tea then we went and got our broom for curling then we went on the ice it was slippy to start thin it got better. It was fun pushing the stone down the ice to the target I got better at it as I did it more. 


After lunch we went ice skating at first I was fulling over every two to three metres because it was my first time. But I got a polar bear and it  helped me to stand up on the skates and how to push to move fords. After a while I tried with out the polar bear I still fell over but I did not all of the time. My high score was ten times around the ice hockey field with out fulling over.

That was the year seven and eight ice skating and curling tripe.  


my weekend

This weekend Me and my family went to Twizel and I spread some lime on the the lawn with the side by side and a lime spreader. It was fun being able to go and do it.

When we got home  me and my sister made a pine cone box to hold pine cones. it is big enough for use to fit in.
