This weekend I went to Manchester to be on BBC1. This is my routine, so first we packed our bags for the train. It was a long journey and I packed toys to entertain me. I took colouring and top trumps. Then we were off to the train station. We waited on platform 4 for our train and we had to find our seats. It took 2 in a half hours.
As soon as we got to Manchester we got a taxi to the hotel. We got there super late so we went to bed. We had a bed each and the room was really nice. So the next morning we woke up at 6:00. because we had to go to the studio really early. After we got ready we went to BBC1.
We had a touch of makeup and then we were on TV just like that. The lady took me into a room and asked me if I wanted my hair straight or curled. I said curled, she kept saying I had lovely hair. Next she put some lip gloss on me. My mum was also getting her make up done.
Then we had microphones put on us and went into the studio. The studio is smaller than it looks on TV but the people are the same. They are famous TV people and I was sitting with them.
We were talking about reverse advent calendars.That means giving to other people. Each day you put something in a box and then give it to a charity who gives it to poor people. They asked me questions like what I would put in the box and why we should do it. I said it makes people happy.
After it finished they said we are going on again!!!!!
We went for breakfast in the hotel and I had pancakes.
We went back to the studio and we met Katie Melua. She was really nice and liked my colouring. We talked about playing the guitar. After we went on TV we went home to watch ourselves over and over again.
Do join in with the reverse advent calendars to help other people.
