Beddy visits the Conisborough Castle – Doncaster

Monday, August 5th, 2013

I visited the Conisborough Castle yesterday, and it was brilliant!!!

We learnt that it was built in 1070 which was shortly after the huge battle of Hastings where two armies were fighting for the country of England.

Sadly the castle has fallen down now and there is only one tall building which is called a keep which the goodies would use to kill the baddies.

I would highly recommend a visit!

LinQy visits John Smith Stadium – Huddersfield

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Yesterday my cousin LinQy and I visited the John Smith stadium, which is the home ground to football team Huddersfield Town.

It is also the home of Huddersfield Giants Rugby Union team!

We learned that it has 24,500 seats for the home and away supporters to sit in.

That’s a lot of people!!

We also learnt that the ground was opened 19years ago! Which is a lot older than you and me?

Beddy visits The National Railway Museum

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

I visited the National railway Museum the other day; you can discover 300 years of history and 1,000,000 objects that changed the world. It was so much fun learning about the railway. Do you like the railway?  You can even play with the trains; they come in all shapes and sizes. Some are really small whereas others are huge and you can even sit in them! You should definitely go if you have the chance!

LinQy visits York Minster…

york minster

Yesterday, I went to York and saw the cathedral.

It was very impressive, and somebody told me that people began building it in 1230, that is over 700 years ago!

I thought it was amazing that something so large and detailed could have been made without machinery and electricity. You should be sure to go if you visit York because this is definitely an experience I will not forget!

LinQy visits…Newark Truckfest

Friday, October 26th, 2012

This year, I went to Newark Truckfest, and helped celebrate it’s 30th anniversary.
I talked to drivers, and other truck enthusiasts!

There was entertainment aswell, Monster Trucks, Motorbike stunts, and stars from TV and the stage.

I had a great day and I am looking forward to going back next year!

Beddy visits…the White Cliffs of Dover!

Monday, September 24th, 2012

At the bottom of England, next to the sea, there are some big cliffs. The cliffs at Dover are different to everywhere else, because they are completely white! They are called the White Cliffs of Dover, and they are very famous! Before aeroplanes had been invented, people left England on boats. The White Cliffs of Dover were the last piece of England that people saw, and the first bit they could see when they got back. I didn’t know that on a clear day, you can see them all the way from France!

Beddy Visits… Olympic Ceremony

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

Friday night was the Olympic opening ceremony, a big night with people from all over the world watching. Me and LinQy were there to witness the marvellous performances and the amazing firework display but we didn’t enjoy the long drive home!

After discussing the best moments I said that the James Bond sketch was the best but LinQy said he loved the Rowan Atkinson part!

Beddy Visits… LEGOLAND

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Today I’m off to LEGOLAND with my cousin LinQy, we’ve been given a day off from deliveries.

There are more that 55 interactive rides, live shows, building workshops and LEGO models that we fit into one day.

My favourite part was Miniland. Miniland is a miniature park made from Lego, it has models of towns and cities from all over the world. It also has cars that move and trains that run on real tracks all scaled perfectly to size to fit in with the model surroundings. the attraction is made of just under 40 million Lego bricks.

LinQy’s favourite was the part on Traffic which is themed around transport. Unfortunately he was too big to drive one of the Lego cars around the track but he had lots of fun watching the children learning how to drive.

We both had such a fun day at LEGOLAND and really enjoyed our day off, back to deliveries tomorrow.

Beddy Visits… Buckingham Palace

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

I was lucky enough to get one of the few tickets for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert.

I was greeted with a lovely picnic that was created by celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal, it had five courses including coronation chicken and my favourite pudding Eton mess.

Whilst watching the concert I spotted Prince William and his wife Kate, the Queen turned up late but since it’s her party she’s allowed to be late. There were lots of great singers including Elton John, JLS and Cheryl Cole, but my favourite was Robbie Williams. The Queen looked to be having a great time sat with all her family having a sing a long.

At the end the Queen and Prince Charles took to the stage to make a brilliant speech that made me proud to be British. The Queen then went on to light the National Beacon, which was followed by an amazing fire work display.

I’m so lucky to have been chosen to attend the concert; I will treasure the memories for ever. Long live the Queen.

Happy Easter!

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Happy Easter everybody I hope the Easter bunny has left you lots of Easter eggs. We receive Easter eggs as the egg is a symbol of the start of new life, just as when the chick hatches out of the egg.

Easter is a very special event in the Christian diary. Christians are followers of Jesus Christ who lived about 2000 years ago. Christians believe that Jesus is the son of god, at Easter time Christians remember the last week of Jesus’ life.

I’ve got four days off delivering this week thanks to the Easter Holidays so I’m getting some much needed rest. Enjoy your Easter Holidays.
