The first child to either comment below or email me the meaning of the word of the week - look below - keep reading - it's down there - will win a copy of 'Granny Goes To Hop Hop.'
Judi now has a YouTube channel. See, I do listen when you tell me to post videos of my poems online. You can find me here
It's a learning curve for SuperGran, but I'm getting better at it. Tell me if you have a favourite poem you'd like to see me post. PLEASE remember to subscribe to my channel and like your favourite poems or leave me a comment.
You've not heard from me for a while, and now you can see why. I've also been sick and busy writing, and sometimes even both at the same time.
WRITING - I've had some really cool things happening. I wrote a poem called 'Plastic Minefield' about the plight of the poor turtles and the plastic in our oceans. As of now, it's reached 6,145 people from my Rainbow Poetry NZ Kids FaceBook page. I will add it to YouTube over the next few days. That's pretty awesome, but it gets even better. A talented teacher in Auckland has set the poem to music, and is going to record her school choir singing it. We hope to get a video of that online for you as soon as we can.
Don't you hate it when you get sick. Nearly everyone seems to have been unwell at some time this winter. Talking about things I don't like............. I DON'T LIKE WINTER! Well I don't like the cold and I hate all the rain we've had. Just about needed to wear my bathing suit outside for all the puddles. But I do like snuggling down into a nice warm bed at night, and don't like it when someone doesn't turn my electric blanket on! That someone........ they're to blame for everything that goes wrong in our house.
Les and I flew down to Christchurch a few weeks ago. Rosie wasn't happy as soon as she saw the suitcase come out! I was judging the Lions International Young Speechmaker Of The year. There were 13 talented young speechmakers from all around New Zealand. Here is a photo of 1st and 2nd placegetters and the also the Hamilton finalist. What an honour to hear their speeches. They all did a great job. First place gets 6 weeks in America and Canada, second place 3 weeks in Australia, and third attends the international 10 day youth camp in Tauranga. A good reason to keep working on your speech presentations for when you get to high school.

WORD OF THE MOMENT
fickle - Have you ever been fickle?
Don't forget that I love hearing from you, so contact me if you have any questions. I hope this year you may be one of the children I'll get to meet for the first time.
Keep on writing and keep smiling.
