Hi readers, it’s Emily and William here, or should we say collectively Emiliam or Wimily!
This week we are sitting in a Beach-hut at the Brewhouse. Even though it’s raining, we feel like we’re on the beach, pretending our cokes are cocktails! This could become our regular writing venue as it’s fun, quieter and well ventilated.
Today I, Emily, thought we could write about what it’d be like to be famous for a couple of days. What I would do? I’d be a popular catwalk model as I’d like to just experience how it feels to be famous. I don’t want to be too famous but enough. I’d spend it in Paris, perhaps on the catwalk and then in the studio on a photo shoot. It may sound odd as I don’t actually like my photo being taken! I like the idea of a location shoot too, that could be fun. If it doesn’t sound too daft, on a boat somewhere doing my poses and the camera crew taking pictures.
If I, William, was famous for a day, I’d be a tv presenter, perhaps on the Olympics with Alex Scott and Clare Balding as they are so good, and I think I’d get on with them quite well. I like their banter and they seem nice. I hope viewers would see me as chilled out, smiley and fun. I’d also like to present on the Paralympics with Adam Hills. I actually met him in Yeovil and he was so nice. He helped raise some money for our charity and talked to us for ages after his show. Doing the Paralympics would be good because I have a learning disability and can relate to having a disability.
We hope this has got you thinking as to what you’d do if you were famous for a couple of days!
