Ireland might not be the best at climate change and we might be a small country but we do care about the environment and we want to show that to the world!!!!!! 15th of February its time to get ready!!!!!!!!

On Saturday my Granny my Mum my Dad and I all went to pick up a really cool hybrid mini car for the weekend and it was so cool, we all really liked it, it was so awesome, also inside the car it changed colours, it went from red to blue to purple it was so, so, so cool and I really hope we get it! When we were in the car I continued to sing the song ‘I’m In Love With My Car’ by Queen it is such a fun song to play in the car !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On Monday my Mum and I went to a really great meeting about the swimming baths  in Dun Loaghaire that are being built. It was really interesting and cool because we got to help decide the future of the swimming baths in Dun laoghaire!

This weeks story is called ‘The Seals Playground’

Once upon a long, long time ago under the sea there was a problem a big problem……………………..

……………………….. ALL THE SEAL CHILDREN AND BABYS WERE BORED!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which was terrible for all the parents because the children would just complain and annoy their parents, CONSTANTLY.

The adult seals did not know what to do and  or how to do it!! Then one day something crazy happened all the seal children were missing they weren’t annoying the fishermen they weren’t trying to steal food, they were no were to be found! All the parent seals were looking everywhere meanwhile the seals with no kids were enjoying the sound of silence! They looked high and they looked low but they could not find their children at all. After a while the parent seals were starting to get worried that something terrible might have happend to them but then one seal found them all on the surface playing with all this plastic and rubbish!! The seals hugged there kids, then one seal who was more angry than anyone that they didn’t tell them where they were going said:

We have been looking for you everywhere, we have been worried sick!

then one of the kids said

Sorry Miss we just saw this really cool place to play in and we just couldn’t help ourselves

Some how all the adult seals understood and were alright with it!!!!!!!!! So everyday all the kids would go there to play with the rubbish whilst the parents relaxed or enjoyed the fishermen!!!!!!!!!! Things were going great …………………………………

Until!!!

One of the seals swallowed one of the pieces of plastic and couldn’t breathe… luckily his Mum and Dad brought him straight to the seal hospital where he was saved but then they realised they had to do something about the playground because they did not want this to happen ever again! so they went up to the surface and got one of the bags that was floating up there, then bit by bit piece by piece they cleaned up every last piece of rubbish and made it one of the cleanest parts of the sea and when ever rubbish would build up there again they would clean it and then they would put it on the one place it truly belonged…the human’s beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And from now on instead of doing nothing with their kids they taught there kids how to do one of the most important thing in the world……………………………………………………………. ………………………..

Follow the fisherman’s boat and sunbathe on the rocks!!!

The End

    Hi Flossie
    Loved your blog, as always. Loved the idea too about using plastic credit on public transport. What a great way of getting people to collect plastic instead of throwing it away! Jean 😊
