Double Blessing…

K3Z

It’s been almost 4 months since I started my life at KES. FYI, I’m studying 15 core and creative subjects: English, Maths, Science, Geography, Art, Design and Technology, Computing, French, Latin, History, Music, Drama, RS, PE and Rugby/Hockey.

King Edward’s School also uses a credit system. Credits are kind of like points that you get awarded if you do a good piece of work. I actually achieved my first 10 credits way back on 24th October, and I got a certificate to mark the achievement too.

But when you go on to achieve 25 credits, or do an outstanding piece of work, then you get an entry in what they call the GOLDEN BOOK, which is a special book in the Chief Master’s study. Every student looks forward to getting an entry in the Golden Book, because it’s a very big achievement!

The good news is that I was blessed with a DOUBLE GOLDEN BOOK ENTRY last week! The first one was on Wednesday 5th December for my Geography project, and I went to visit the Chief Master to get my name signed in the Golden Book. And right after that, on Thursday 6th December, I got my second Golden Book entry for attaining 25 credits! Not only that, I also got £20 worth of Amazon gift cards!

I can’t describe how proud I was, looking at my name in the Golden Book, and not just once, but two days in a row! Alhamdulillah, I can’t thank God enough for the endless blessings. And of course, I couldn’t possibly have done it without the support and prayers from my PAWSOME parents!!

Pawsome regards,

Laffy Taffy!

In the last few posts, you’ve only seen my casual and serious style of writing. But, you haven’t seen my creative side yet! Other than writing, music has always been my passion. Even when I’m writing, I listen to Mozart at the same time. Mozart helps to stimulate my brain more. But not only Mozart, I do love various types of music.

When I was in Moseley (old school), I used to have a band called “The Five Diamonds”. As the name clearly says, there were five of us (best friends) in the band. There was a girl named Ellie, who played the drums, another girl called Natalia, who was a dancer and twins called Antony and Alex. Alex played the fife and Antony sang with me. I have also written a few songs in the past. One of them was for my Dream T-Shirt Boutique and the rest were mostly for the band.

Anyway, remember the post about chocolate mayhem? Well, Uncle Fun has sort of ‘challenged’ me to write a song about Laffy Taffy. For some of you who can’t remember, Laffy Taffy was the brand for my chocolate. Today, I was thinking of what to post when all of a sudden, this idea hit me! I accepted Uncle Fun’s challenge and have a complete song waiting for you!!! 😉

This will also show you my creative side as well as entertaining you.

LAFFY TAFFY

(lyrics by The Pawsome Lion)

Laffy Taffy, it’s really yuffy,

It’ll make you laugh all day long.

Laffy Taffy,

Sold it to my mate named Miffy,

Gave it to her Grandma Jaffy.

Laffy Taffy, it’s so good,

Some people hide it under their hood.

It’s divine, it’s delicious,

It’s scrumptious not vicious.

It’s twisty, it’s turny,

It’s bendy and curvy.

It’s the Laffy Taffy, Laffy Taffy all day long!

Laffy Laffy, Taffy Taffy, Laffy Taffy, Laffy Taffy…

I may not be Wonka but I can dance to Conga,

Coz J.O’s my brotha from anotha motha.

I may not have Loompas but I do have Toompas.

Try and close my factory down, I’ll make yours tumble to the ground.

I might not be toughy but I’m always laughy.

My Uncle Fun won’t believe it but I needed to achieve it,

Coz it’s Laffy Taffy, Laffy Taffy all night long!

Laffy Laffy, Taffy Taffy, Laffy Taffy, Laffy Taffy…

When Harry met Sally, Choccy met Taffy.

This is no black or white, this is coco loves pinky.

When Barbie hugged Ken, Choccy hugged Taffy.

Let’s not get too warm or else we will melt,

Then all that is left, just a messy puddle,

So it’s Laffy Taffy, Laffy Taffy till it’s dawn!

Laffy Laffy, Taffy Taffy, Laffy Taffy Laffy Taffy…

 

Here’s a video of me singing it! Excuse me and my croaky voice. I had a sore throat! 😦
