But a BLUE PETER BADGE!!!!
Upon opening the post this week, Joshua discovered he'd earned his first Blue Peter badge. It was that long ago he'd gone online and submitted his short story to them, he'd forgotten all about it.
I wish I'd saved his story now to share with you, but it was called The Land of Chocolate and involved a young boy somehow eating an entire town (made of chocolate, of course), then being woken up by his mother at the end and telling her he couldn't manage breakfast as he was full, or something like that anyway.
Joshua's usually a pretty cool and reserved boy when it comes to showing excitement so to catch him beaming like this is rare and that's why it's all the more heartwarming.
