Fred had always wanted to be an astronaut and now he could! The whole adventure started when Fred, Mummy and Daddy went to a space launch.
“Of course you can Fred,” Daddy replied “But don’t go on the 624ZT it’s going to set off soon!” But Fred didn’t hear the last bit he had already ran off!
Unfortunately Fred went on the 624ZT. He put on the suit, buckled himself in and pretended to be an astronaut. Suddenly Fred heard the cry: 5…4…3…2…1…BLAST OFF! Then Fred found himself blasting off in to space!
When Fred finally landed, he found himself on a brand new planet! Fred just couldn’t believe his eyes! He got out his digital camera and started to take photos of everything he saw.
Then Fred saw something VERY strange. Something that humans have wondered about for years. Fred saw an alien!
“Aaaaaaaaaaahhhh!” Fred screamed and ran. But unfortunately for Fred he fell down a hole! He screamed again. Then something came down the hole, it was a twig! Fred grabbed hold of the twig and pulled himself out of the hole. Fred stood up and realised that it wasn’t a twig it was the alien’s arm!
“GobbylafongGib. Sudolagisabelashu?” said the alien.
“What?!” asked Fred puzzled.
“Oh, sorry! I was talking in Globglob there. I said that my name was Gib and asked you who you where.” replied the alien.
“Oh right my name’s Fred and I come from Earth,” replied Fred”
Suddenly there was a beeping sound, Gib pulled out a device which looked like a plastic ear on string and started to talk in Globglob to someone on the other end. Gib put away the plastic ear, which Fred later found out was called an “I can ‘ear you device” and told Fred that he was taking him to the king of all aliens.
The king looked exactly like Gib but then all aliens did. The king told Fred that he would let him go as long as he didn’t tell anyone about them.
“But can I tell my Mummy and Daddy?” asked Fred “It’s just they’ll want to know where I’ve been.”
The king rolled his five eyes. “Of course you can tell your Mummy and Daddy!” he replied “Oh and by the way you can call this planet anything you want.”
“I know!” shouted Fred “Planet McKelvey! After my surname!”
Later on Fred got in to the 624ZT and got ready to go.
“5…4…3…2…1…BLAST OFF!” shouted Gib and Fred blasted off in to space.
“Bye Gib! Bye planet McKelvey! See you soon!”
That evening Fred told Mummy and Daddy about Gib and planet McKelvey. But of course like all parents they didn’t believe a word!
More home made present news tomorrow hopefully (if I get them finished!) - and of course the eagerly awaited Charlie P creation - I can't wait for Fred to see that!
In other news I am pleased to say that 6 of my mini quilts have safely arrived in their new homes - I will upload some pictures soon.
Off now to have some quality time with good old Mr Locket - we are going to have coffee and book browse in peace at Borders this morning before coming back to organise everything for Fred's party tonight and birthday tomorrow!
Have a good day!
