A letter from my sister, aged 6 and 3/4

My Mum and Dad have been decluttering recently, before an escape to The Good Life and selling their home of 25 years. This means a few hidden gems have turned up, which have been gathering dust for a very long time. Like a letter from my sister, aged 6.

Reading this letter now, as a mum myself, makes me hope Frog will one day have a younger sibling. There’s nothing quite like sisters and brothers for bringing you down a peg or two…


Dear Mole (On Sunday I bought some “Mole” powder for you),

Here is what I have been doing while you have been on school camp…

On Sunday I went sailing with my friends. Then we went to the pub for supper.

On Monday Mrs Johnston came into my class and said there wasn’t going to be a swimming lesson, we would have two hours free time in the pool to play with all the floats and toys instead.

On Tuesday Mr Waldron closed the school because there was no water. So we had no school for the whole day.

On Thursday Nana is coming to stay, but she will go home on Saturday morning (before you get back from camp) so you won’t get to see her.

On Saturday Mum is taking me shopping to buy me some new clothes from Tammy Girl. She says you can’t have anything.

Love from Lizzy xxx

P.S. NOT!!!!!!!


Already an expert in the art of winding up her sister, at the age of 6. And she wonders why I wouldn’t let her play with my Sylvanian Family toys….

  1. That’s impressive writing! Does she blog…..

  2. Mistress Mummy

    Haha! That is brilliant. She is a pro at that. Sounds like she had an amazing week!

    she only was allowed a look in when you weren’t there? ‘i’m part of this family too’

    I wish there was spell and grammar check on this computer before I send you a message! I’m still traumastised when your Mum returned a letter I had written to her with spelling and grammar corrections on it, I was in my 30’s. I hope you are not the same?

  4. Jane Clarke

    only and was in reverse

    That is utterly fabulous! Would you care to link it to my Wot so Funee linky later today? It is perfect – hope you didn’t grow up with a self-esteem problem off the back of that. I can’t wait until the Bug is old enough to do that to his older sister – she is usually the one with the best put-downs at the moment!

  6. Love it!!

    I’d have kept the spelling mistake in just to bring her back down that peg 😉

  7. I would have kept in the spelling mistake too! My two were born already versed in the art of winding each other up. At aged two, they are true masters.

  8. Expat Mammy

    very good, hahahha

  9. What an extraordinarily literate child. My son’s that age and even he can’t decipher the mating-spider shapes he calls writing!

    Although she has used some different sentence openers, she has over relied on “On Monday…” etc. If she were in my class the next steps would be… Only kidding, if only I had children like that in my Y2 class at school now!!!

  11. Haha love it! And I used to buy all my clothes in Tammy Girl, I forgot about that place! LOL! X

    Just been to the pub and 2 families all active separately on their games/lap tops/phones. The children were aged between 5 and 10. The art of conversation and letter writing is now officially dead. Keep Lizzy’s letter it is an artefact of a different era or at the very least evidence of her endless teasing.
    I never sent my sister’s letter back corrected. I want to see the evidence!
