Fantastic sports day today. It wasn't too hot and the wind kept the midgies away. Midgies are tiny flies that bite you and suck your blood. Scotland is famous for them but they can't fly if it's windy. I like the wind. In the three legged race there were four teams. My friend and I were running really fast and were in first place when we tripped and went flying! Two teams overtook whilst we were picking ourselves off the floor but we managed to get a third. It didn't matter because it was just for fun. Overall I got a 1st in the long run, 1st in the sprint and 3rd in the three legged.
Today's lunch was special because it's my favourite. There was no soup on today but it didn't matter because I wouldn't have chosen it over ice-cream and shortbread. I googled the Hindi for fantastic so I can say my chicken curry was शानदार (śānadāra)! I mix the rice and curry together but I put the broccoli in the cup holder so I can eat it afterwards. I always eat my shortbread before the ice-cream. The shortbread is really nice because it's covered in sugar. The teachers told everyone in school today that we are all allowed fruit everyday but today I chose not to have any.

Thanks to Emily from Shetland (9 seconds because I knew it was part of Scotland) who is in Sendai, Japan (32 seconds) where she teaches English in a Primary School for sending me this photo.
'Students always have milk and they have to bring their own chopsticks. My chopsticks are Winnie the Pooh! Students always eat in their classrooms at their desks and there is no choice (everyone eats the same thing). The food in this lunch is fish, seaweed rice, tofu and egg soup and salad with sesame dressing.' Emily adds that the meal costs 250yen, about £2.
It looks like Emily keeps her chopsticks in a case. I like the idea of eating at my desk but it's probably too messy!
I really enjoyed my curry today and I'd love to see some meals from India please! I'd be grateful for photos of all your lunches and ratings to firstname.lastname@example.org
