The Life of Agnes: Angels, Americans and Agonising Agony

There are three things I love more than anything. 1) Animals 2) My family 3) My freind

In this book you'll find out about the day my best (only) freind came to school for the first time. And about how I found my soul sister in an African American girl from the past. (Who heard Martin Luther Kings speach when she was my age). You can also read about my younger brothers atempts at being a stunt man. (Ouch).


8. Shopping with boys (can be fun)

For a fun shopping trip take a friend who will give you advice and an honest opinion. For even more fun bring a friend who will make you laugh. For maximum fun bring a friend who will do all these things. Tommy certainly comes into the third category. We met outside M&S. (Which used to be Woolworths. It had been there when grandma was young. When I was little every Sunday grandma would give mum a break and take us out. Every time we would go into Woollies and buy a pick and mix. I would always choose jelly snakes and dolphins, chocolate mice and mini eggs). Tommy and I went round a few shops looking for the perfect outfit. There were many fun events. Like when Tommy ‘tried on’ a bra. Much to the amusement of the shop assistance. Not. And when he went to try on a jumper. Only for it to rip down the side. But inspite all this I eventually found what I was looking for. A white and silver top with a butterfly top, a pair of skinny jeans and a leather jacket. “And I can wear my silver pumps with it.” Tommy agreed this was a good idea. It wasn’t until we’d left the shop, (Oxfam if you must know) that I was stumped for things to do. Tommy suggested we’d visit the park. But I pointed out that one visit to the park a day was enough for me. “Well let’s hear your ideas then.”

“Well I did think of checking on Boi.” So we made a beeline for the sports shop known as All Star Sports. My brother was staking shoe boxes when we found him. “Hey Agnes having fun?”

“Yeh. Well. We were, now we haven’t a clue what we’re going to do now.” Boi put the last shoe box on the shelf. “Why don’t you go down to Cherry Oak Wood.” He suggested. “Oh Boi that’s a wonderful idea. Come on Tommy.” I dragged Tommy out of the shop and we walked to Cherry Oak. Cherry Oak is a large nature reserve. It’s free to enter though I always leave a donation. There are loads of different trees in Cherry Oak. But there are cherry trees all along the border, and bang slap in the middle (in the middle of a clearing) is a huge oak tree. Tommy and I sat under the oak. We hadn’t been there long when I saw a streak of grey. I kept staring at the spot until the squirrel came back.  Me and Tommy happily watched him gathering nuts for winter. We were there for hours but then it started getting cold. So we walked back to the shopping centre then went our separate ways.
