Today I went and invaded England. Our army smashed the opposition the British. My son also fought alongside me in war. Me and my son then went off to see my sister, my wife died of illness. I do not like to talk about it. We went back to Scandinavia. If you do not know what Scandinavia it is Denmark, Sweden and Norway. When we got back I went off to help out with the farm. I had to wear a coat made of fur as the temperature was -5 degrees. It was in fact the coldest day of the month. My son went off to catch some fish in the lake for dinner with some of his friends.
Today I went off on a long ship with some of my mates to attack a village and there were 5 other ships going. But 2 of them were a group of settlers. They were going to get some free land. But the other ship was there to ask some British men for land to set up a new farm. Soon more ships will come if they get the land. When I got back to my long house I started to play a game called kingy bats. I played it with my sons friends. Here are the rules. The children would make a circle of wood. They would then pass a simple ball of tied up fabric around the circle without letting it fall to the ground. The ball may have been hit into the air as it was passed from one Viking child to another. It was very interesting as I had never played it when I was a child.
I told my son I am going away for 5 weeks as I need to go and raid another place. You will stay with one of your friends you can choose. I will just go to your friend’s house as his dad is the chief. So they are going to have a big meeting about battle plans. I will see you in 2 week time my son.
