Remember that day we went into space? Man, Mum and Dad were so mad at us that day.

You packed sticking plasters, which was pretty cool because Candy scratched me when I tried to get her into the shuttle with us.

We saw so much that day. Shooting stars, satellites, alien space ships. The best bit was probably looking back at Earth and our galaxy. So pretty. It was so big and we are still so small.

Then we ran out of sandwiches and it was time to go home again.

Mum and dad were shouting. Candy hid all night on top of the bookshelves. Remember we were both grounded and no pocket money for three weeks!

It was totally worth it, though. Even if Smudge the Goldfish had to die for our advances in space exploration.

Orion says hello.
