Kia ora, and welcome to another blog post!
This week we have been doing a recount about our favourite holiday place or just a normal favourite place to be. So my favourite place to be is Invercargill. Which is southland the bottom of the south island by bluff, and gore! This was also words from my own perspective. This was a hard time for me in that time so like it was definitely different to be telling the story. So I do hope you enjoy reading this, Comment down below your favourite part of my story byeee!
|Orientation- (who) Frankie (what) Invercargill (when) on weekends holidays (where) Southland Invercargill (why) because it’s my home. (A bit more background information) Invercargill is apparently for stupid people but I don’t believe that because I used to live there.|
|Events (What happened) – In 2020 my mum decided to move from Invercargill to Christchurch, so we made a decision we were going to move ofcourse we started to pack up the house, clean it and Mum’s boyfriend Grant came down and took all our belongings back to christchurch. It was quick and emotional letting go of my house for a different place, I was getting home sick, just having the thought of letting go. My Mum said I would be fine and I would love it up there. I agreed and started packing my room.|
|I was so upset because I wasn’t ready for another home. It didn’t feel right leaving all my family behind. But my Mum wasn’t going to give up, she was in love with Grant but I know, if my Mum loves him I will too. I left my cat behind and all of my childhood toys that remind me of memories. It gave me the thought of when I was little going up to dudein to stay with my cousins and see some of my other families. It is always nice to stop and see family that you haven’t seen in awhile. So we always make sure we can see them if they are not busy or we aren’t. Half way through cleaning and packing up my room I came across, My teddy from when I was first born. Also a couple of photos of my great great grandad and my gran this year (2023) he would be 100 and my gran this year is 94. The photos were taken at my gran’s 80th birthday , 14 years ago.
Before we went to live up in Christchurch we went for a mini holiday to explore and meet Grant’s family. My mum (Levina) told me that they lived together with the people that live there, Grant, Francine, Brent, and the dog twitch. So we went up there and when we got there everybody greeted us at the door. I was getting hugs and I felt uncomfortable because I didn’t know these people except for Grant. The dog twitch was very friendly and kind. He struggled up to be and played with the ball. He was very good friends with Hudini, who was my dog. We stayed up there for a few days and headed back home. I felt more confident about moving to Christchurch now. Once we got back I realized I would be moving school’s with no friends at all. I was scared and worried about what it’s going to be like at a new school.
It felt like I was going to be a nobody because I had been when I was a year 1. But I continued packing. Once I had done my room I moved on to helping my mum clean up her room, It was full of stuff like perfume, jewelry, bags, and clothes. We had finished the whole house. The only thing left was the beds. It was getting late so I headed to bed and got ready for school tomorrow. My mum is going to stay home and pack up the car and the beds. Once the school day was over Mum was going to pick us up and start getting ready for the road trip. School was over and it was time to say goodbye to all my friends, family and my favorite teacher Whea Ashley and she is still one of my favorite teachers. We hit the road. I was so excited but worried at the same time I was already getting home sick. Once I got there I felt right at home, I got comptable really fast and I was ready for a new home.
|Conclusion- I went through the covid 19 pandemic so I stayed home for about 5 weeks and it didn’t really go well. After I started my new school I felt really nervous. I made new friends Felice, Shreeya, Leilani, Maryberth, Josh. My new favorite teachers were Mr Martin, Mr Taylor, Miss Scott, Miss Hanson. I loved living in ChristChurch. I never had a mall in Invercargill, but ChristChurch had lots of huge malls. ChristChurch had become my new Home.|
