It’s time to leave,
I’ve got to go.
I’ve learnt much here,
More than you know.

To you, I thank,
For your support.
Throughout the years,
With all I’ve sought.

Things have to end.
Of that I know.
So bye my friend,
I have to go.

I was never really a book worm when I was younger. Books were more for my sister Laura. However, I was fascinated by the way words form on a page. At school we would read books in class like Biff and Chip but I was more interested in writing and making up my own stories. They weren’t masterpieces but I just loved to get lost in the story and the forming of the words, watching closely as my hand moved the pen on the paper, forming the letters.

It wasn’t until I was about 13 that my love for books really started. It all began with a story about a boy who discovers he is a wizard on his 11th birthday. By the time I discovered Harry Potter, the first two books had been published. I was hooked straight away and was disappointed that after reading the second one, I would have to wait for the third!

As I read, I felt that I was in Hogwarts with Harry and Hermione. I wanted to be there with them. Their life sounded so magical and special (don’t get me wrong, mine was great too!).

Another of my favourite books as a child was Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. Again, I got lost in the life of the March sisters and wanted to be there with them, joining in with their plays. Even today I like a good fantasy novel, sci-fi or romance where I can escape to. It makes me feel full somehow.

Having to ask your boss if you can pop home to change your trousers as the zip has broken! I swear it’s not because they are too tight as I have lost weight! Epic fail!
