It was one chilly morning when i woke up and had the birds sing their melodies song and they were jumping from tree to tree when i had the birds came out of my bed and opened the window and sharfed of the light lighted my eye so i went in the bedroom and took a cold shower as fast as a deer. I weared my beautiful dress which had matched my shoes,earrings, socks and my hair clip. After finishing i had some aroma which was coming from the kitchen so i knew that my mother was cooking for me some tea. I took the tea as fast as i could . I wnt to school very fast and found the bus gone and the school was very quit and calm. So because i knew my teachers number i called her and asked he where she was and told me that they were very far from Nairobi so i was disapointed and i went home i had a harry because i wanted to tell my mother the insidence. That is my memorable day.
