At kinder I got to dress up in a kimono. I loved it! Now, at primary school, I learn to speak and write Japanese, learn Japanese crafts like paper folding and even try different kinds of Japanese food. That's even more fun. We have one Australian teacher who has been to Japan and a young woman who has come here to improve her English and help us with her language.
I wanted to wear a dress that day, but Mum wanted me to wear “something warm,” meaning long pants. In the end we compromised.
These are pictures of me when I was about two years old. At playgroup I liked climbing and sliding through pipes, and at home I liked to show people different things in the garden, such as our big bird cage.
Umbrellas are lots of fun. When I was little I used to make a house with four or five of them, but people always complained because the umbrellas would blow away and get broken. I had to just take one, hold it over my head and dream about making houses.
Once when I was very small I helped Mummy and Obby sort through a lot of junk from the shed. There were all sorts of new and exciting things in the boxes, and my favourite was a big shell. I held it to my ear to hear the sound of the sea. There was definitely some sort of noise in there!
The little girl feeding a wallaby looks a lot like me, but it's really a picture of Mummy. You aren't allowed to feed the animals these days, because junk food spoils their diet and can make them ill.
Here's a picture of Mummy now that she's a grown-up, and another picture of her when she was a little girl. It was her first day in a bright yellow rain-coat and rain-hat. She had bright yellow boots too, although you can't see them in the picture.
The other picture is me in my favourite hat. It's a good hat for being Sun Smart, but it's very floppy and it makes me laugh.
I dressed as a swagman for something special at school. I had bowyangs and a billy-can and a hat with corks on strings. The corks are meant to scare away flies. When Obby put me up on the table to take this photo, she said, “Don't tell your grandmother or she'll go crook.” That's a bit silly. Obby is my grandmother.
When I get home after school I just like to relax. Here I am down at the play equipment.
