Cooking Our First Banana Loaf

Mo creams the butter and brown castor sugar with the gusto of a Master Chef!

Indigo beats three over-ripe bananas until they submit.

Adding the bananas, beaten eggs and vanilla extract to Mo's creamed butter and sugar mix.

It's important to gather all ye olde ingredients before beginning to bake. Or ye gets very confused rather quickly.

Fold your sifted flour, baking powder and pinch of salt into the gooey mix of other ingredients. If the spoon can stand up on its own in the pan, it's probably not a good sign. But that's how it happened for us!

Pour your gooey mix into a greased loaf tin. Then wash up!!

After 50 mins at 180 degrees, this rather yummy banana loaf came out to be devoured!!

Woah! Long time no see!
I am homeschooled now. Daymn.
But no matter! Sadness is Parasprites!

Last two weeks was Latin(& Greek) fortnight! Here is an extract of a poem written by Ovid the Roman poet via Telling Tales in Latin:

prima aetas est aurea. terra est communis. agri dant cibum sponte sua. ver est aeternum.
The first age is golden. The earth is communal. Fields give food on their own. Spring is eternal.

I am being tortured with Latin - send help!!!
This week is french week.

I bid thee good health,

The Big Bang Theory

Will background radiation from the Big Bang ever run out? This is one of the questions Indigo and Dylan discuss in their Big Bang Theory discussion.

If you look at Dylan's You Tube account, there are other short films like this to enjoy. Including a longer piece on the Big Bang and how it happened.

My First Book Review! 'The Ranger's Apprentice!'

This is the book I'll review today: THE RANGER'S APPRENTICE, BOOKS I & II by John Flanagan.
See this on Amazon UK.

Oi guys! Don't go to sleep! I know you're thinking "Can you do it? it's your first review!" Well maybe you're thinking, "Get on with it!" so okay I'll do it...

Here I go:

Will is:

a nearly 15 year old boy

who is an orphan

his mother died in child birth

his father died a hero

Hoping to become a knight, but being an orphan, Will is under the Lord Baron's control while he trains. His wish is to become an apprentice to one of the Craftmasters when he reaches the age of fifteen.

But when the big day comes, the seven Craftmasters reject him because of his lack of height. Sad and worried about his future, for he can only become a villager by gaining an apprenticeship, Will notices Halt the Ranger giving the Baron letters. Will guesses those letters might be about HIM!

But those letters are just the start to this action-packed story that leads Will to his destiny ...

My favourite bits of this book were the descriptions of special battle skills and equipment, bows and arrows etc. I would recommend it to people who dream of becoming great archers, perhaps doing archery in the Olympics. Will is a great hero, the book has a punch-in-the-face storyline, and I enjoyed most of all the good but tragic ending to this 2in1 book.

My rating would be 9/10.

I liked it, and it would make sense if you liked the book to! This volume has two books in one, so it's good value too.

The author, John Flanagan, has a website for The Ranger's Apprentice.

Hi guys! This is Dylan Here!
Sorry for the long gap, but things have come up (leaks, visits from our big sister Katy and meeting our nephew Kieran) meaning we could not have blogged as much as we would.

Mum said I should blog about my dream, so here goes:

It was about zombies.
A man locked his wife up because she was a zombie. He fed her random people from the street. One day, he kidnapped a girl. She tried to run from the zombies but failed. So instead she ran to a window and drew a face which probably meant,"Help! Get me outa here!". A man and his dog spotted it while there were riding on their flying bicycle( With an open cargo platform beneath big enough to fit a car in) and went to the rescue. They failed. While they rode home, a car drove through the window and landed on the cargo platform. Out (of the car, not the window) jumped the non-bitten girl and she shouted "I'm free!".
The Dream Ended.

Hope you enjoyed this blog post. We WILL blog more frequently in later months, or my name is't Dylan.
Dylan(or is it) and the DMI.

Dyl out.

Indigo's published another book for kids!

Indigo has published a brand-new ebook called HOLLY AND THE RABBITS FROM MARS.

It's a 50 page novel for children aged 8-12, and is a fast-paced sci-fi adventure story about bunnies facing a Martian invasion.

Holly is just a fluffy young bunny. Can she save Planet Earth from invasion by an army of evil Martian rabbits?

Hey, interested? Why not give it a whirl? It's only 77p on Amazon Kindle.

Indigo's new ebook is only available as a Kindle download, though it can be downloaded with Kindle software to any computer and most smart phones.

It's also available in the States.

Indigo Haynes is a young writer of only eight years old. She lives and writes her stories in a farmhouse in Cornwall, England. In 2011, at the age of 7, she was the youngest winner of 'The Tick-Tock Box', a national short story competition at The Guardian newspaper judged by Francesca Simon, author of the Horrid Henry books.
Her short collection of Tudor dog stories, 'How Potatoes Saved the Queen', is Indigo Haynes' first publication. Her second publication is a fast-paced sci fi adventure novel entitled 'Holly and the Rabbits from Mars'.
In her free time, Indigo's hobbies include playing with her naughty Red Setter puppy, constructing mountains of soft toys in her bedroom - which overlooks a field of ponies - and baking cupcakes, preferably the kind with tons of sticky pink icing and sprinkles.
