PictureAs bushfires raged the sun above botany had turned an eerie bright red! This amazing sight was captured from my front verandah. the red orb transfigured the sky with its obvious heat as the grey clouds of smoke swirled overhead.

1. Getting out of the helicopter into the freezing cold of the Vostok Station in
2. The bore was starting to get to me now. Mum had been talking
to Optus for 75 minutes!
3. Turning the page for the 475th time. I had read a
book for the first time in my entire life.
4. Looking at the finished house
of Sussex Inlet, a wave of joy swept over me. It was finally finished.

My poem from 5M:
Tough as a
Sharp as a blade
Sneaky as a
Annoying as a flea
Wriggly as
White as a sheet
Dangerous as a
Numerous as a pea
