“The tucker is ready!” We ran from the pool,
Wrapped our snags in some bread, yummy sausage sizzle.

Relaxing in comfort and style!

Stihl competition win!!!!

Guess what! I just won a Stihl battery pack worth au$1500 with this poem! 

My daddy needs a chainsaw!
Now let me tell you why-
We need to build a treehouse,
That reaches to the sky.

A Stihl batterys what we’re after-
We’ve heard that they’re the best!
And the treehouse that we’re building,
Will put it to the test!

And if we win this compo,
All our friends will shout hooray!
Our dad will be delighted,
He’ll start building straight away!!
