What’s your favourite day? Friday is my favourite! I love Fridays times a hundred - do you know why?
Because on Friday we don't get any homework. :) Well we do but it's not real homework. Mrs Prince writes the same 3 things on the board every Friday. I know them off by heart.
1. Listen to the news once
That's ok cos mam always has the news on. I don't know why, cos it's so boring.
2. Make sure to do something nice for someone
Sometimes I forget but I always tell Mrs Prince if I do.
3. Bring in a new story for Nuacht
That’s easy cos I always have something to say…
BUT the other thing I love about Fridays is that my sisters and brothers all come for their dinner and they bring the kids. So I can play with my nieces and nephews, and because I'm older than they are, I'm in charge.
The house gets full and noisy and we have my favourite dinner in the whole world. Yellow fish with mammy's chips. mmmm even the smell of it is yummy :)
One time Granny came for dinner on Friday and when I told her we were having yellow fish she said to tell mammy it didn’t sound very nice and she didn't want it.
Mammy said, "Go back into your Granny and tell her that it's smoked cod in white sauce."
Granny said, "Well why didn't you say that in the first place? Of course I will have some."
We only ever call it yellow fish, but I didn't tell Granny cos I didn't want to get Mammy into trouble.
So when the dinner is all ready I sit up at the table with my nieces and nephews and we eat ours. ooohh yum yum I love it!
When we are finished I take my nieces and nephews out to the back garden and we play until it's time for everyone to go home. If it’s raining we play on the stairs. NOW can you see why I love Fridays??? It’s the best day. And this Friday Iris is coming too, so she is going to help me mind my nieces and nephews.
Do you have a favourite day and a favourite dinner? Why don’t you tell me on my Facebook page or send me a tweet @lizzyredmond and I will answer all your questions.
I would love if you got in contact with me :)

Mrs Prince said that we had to do one extra bit of homework on Tuesday but she promised it wouldn't be hard. We had to bring in a question for someone in the class and instead of ‘Nuacht’ or ‘Our News’ we would have a Question Time. I knew that I wanted to ask Iris a question. She is my best friend and I know everything about her but I didn't want to ask anyone else.
On Wednesday morning I went to school and I had my question written in my copy, but Iris wasn't in. I told Mrs Prince and she said that I had to think of someone else to ask a question. Mrs Prince said that she was supposed to be last but that I could go last instead. Mine was for Iris and was about her Dad, Kevin. So I had to pick a new question as well as a new person. I didn't know who to pick or what to ask.
Everyone took turns asking questions. I can't remember them all but I remember some.
Mary Kelly asked Aoife McDermott what her Da did as a job. She said he worked in town in a big factory. He makes sure all the machines are working properly and fixes them if something goes wrong.
Rita Jones asked Debbie Molloy if she had a boyfriend. She said yeah and that it was my brother Jim and we all went 'yeuuuuuuch!' I said it the loudest.
Debbie Molloy asked Mary Saunders what her favourite dinner was. She said it was Christmas dinner with everything on it – including sprouts. More yeuuuuuuchs!
Rose Mullins asked Mary Kelly where she went on holidays last year. She said that she didn’t go on holidays last year because her Mammy had a baby, but this year they might go to see her Aunty in England on a boat.
Siobhan Rafferty asked Mrs Prince if she had any kids and she said no and then she smiled and said, “Well... not yet.”
Mrs Prince asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up. As soon as she asked me I knew what the answer was.
“I want to be a teacher Miss, just like you.”
“That's great Lizzy. I think you'd be a great teacher. Now it's your turn. You can ask me a question because Iris isn't in today. What is your question? “
“How much do teachers get paid Miss?”
Mrs Prince opened her mouth then she closed her mouth. Then she opened her mouth again and closed it again. She took a deep breath and we all looked at her and she said…
“It’s time for Geography now girls, that’s enough of the questions.”
