Flat Stacey goes to Sydney

Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Journey
Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Toy

This is the story of Flat Stacey. Way back in 2009, a very good friend of mine’s daughter had a school project. Flat Stacey was given to each member of her class and had to write a story about an adventure that Flat Stacey had whilst in their possession.

As I was going to Sydney for work, Harmony asked me if I could take Flat Stacey with me and take some photos She would write a story for her project and use my photos to illustrate her story.

I never did get to see Harmony’s story. A while ago when I was talking to her Mum, Flat Stacey came up in the conversation. She asked if Harmony remembered about Flat Stacey but she didn’t. That little girl is around twenty-three now.

Here is my story of Flat Stacey.

Flat Stacey boarded the plane and headed off to Sydney. Tracey, the Flight Attendant, was very attentive to Flat Stacey as she had never flown before and was a bit nervous

After a while Flat Stacey relaxed enough to look out of the window and marvelled at being so high up and what she could see.

Once we were in Sydney, we checked into the hotel and the staff were so friendly and made sure that Flat Stacey felt at home.

Flat Stacey liked the room and the first thing she did was jump on the bed.

Flat Stacey thought the view from the window into the courtyard was fantastic

On the plane on the way home, Flat Stacey couldn’t stop talking about her first plane flight, staying in a hotel in a big city and meeting so many wonderful people.

Bloganuary – What was your favourite toy as a child?

I had a truck
it was a big truck
I was a small child
I would ride around on my truck
my mother said
I still have my truck
it’s made of pressed metal
the driver still sits proud
old and worn
but will always be loved

Boomaroo is an amalgamation of Boomerang and and Kangaroo. This one is from around 1955 or 1958. The trucks were made from 1955 to 1960. There is a similar one for sale on e-bay for $900

This is the information from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney about my truck
