Wow,  I have been so busy, here there and everywhere.  I was supposed to go to Liverpool today but everything was changed and I am going tomorrow instead.  I also got a job which is a short cameo and I have to fall in a lake so we went swimming today to practise going under the water and floating on the surface.  I don’t know what they want me to do yet but it was good fun practising.  Mum said not to do it too good otherwise the lifeguards would be jumping in. I had some basic scuba diving instruction last year but...



Yesterday I was due to return home after filming for CBBC in Liverpool.  We saw a news story on the t.v. in the morning and decided to go and have a look at a parade that was taking place all around Liverpool.
