WordPress has brought it to my attention that I started this blog just over a year ago, and so I am very happy.

Thanks everyone for all of your support. You have made me a very happy cow, and I will make sure to keep this blog running because it is one of the things I really enjoy doing in my spare time.

More blogposts coming soon. I’ve recently been helping a friend of mine with revision so haven’t had much time to write on this blog, but will get back to making regular blogposts soon. Also, I will soon make another issue of the Life Of Cowie magazine, because I have received kind comments about it and I have also chosen a winner for the drawing competition. For your chance of winning and being in the next issue, send me your picture of me to



Life f Cowie magazine issue 2

Finally I have made the second issue of the Life Of Cowie magazine, which mainly contains recent posts reworded in various places, but I enjoy handing them out to people I know and want to keep my magazines going. It is quite a short issue, containing my recent stories about Three Days Grace, Evanescence and Cabin pressure, and also one of my school teachers and her baby and the winner of the life of Cowie drawing competition.

A link to the magazine is below:

I was set a very complicated, time consuming piece of PSHEe homework as part of the ASDAN Qualification. I had to create a magazine, advertise it, raise money to print it and sell a few copies (all in two weeks)

So I chose to make the Life Of Cowie magazine!

The magazine

As I had already designed the front cover from a previous piece of homework, I just changed what the text said and started with the content. Inside the magazine, I wrote about myself, some of the places I’ve gone on holiday, drawing competition, design-me-a-tshirt page and a story about being bullied.

The magazine was surprisingly successful. People came to the school library to get my autograph and people were also very interested in buying a copy or finding out more about me. Of course there were some people who said that I was “weird” and “stupid” but I’m sure that they were just jealous of all the attention I was getting.

Here is the first issue of the first ever Life Of Cowie magazine!

I think I might make another Life Of Cowie magazine, some time soonish

I would like to say a big Thank You to the Shirley Life Magazine, for including me in the latest edition (27 June 2012).

Great things were said about my blog, and I feel proud to be in the Magazine. I won a photo competition and now feel quite famous! Don’t I look lovely in the picture above? 😀

Thanks Shirley Life. Your kind comments have truly touched my heart, and I will be sure to continue blogging.


Why is it that no ‘play food’ ever tastes nice? I understand that I might have a smaller appetite than most, but that does not make up for the fact that food that is designed for me always tastes like cardboard (or plastic if I’m lucky). Urgh! Someone really needs to sort this out, because it has become something that is just accepted now… why can’t I have decent food – just in a smaller portion?

Yesterday, I bought a Peppa Pig magazine, for the food that came with it. I am afraid to say that I was extremely disappointed. It wasn’t edible at all, but simply the packaging of cereal, cookies and cans! Seriously? How strange! I like good food, just like any other person. 🙂 Mmmmm… CHEERIOS! – You can’t beat a good cheerio!

Look at my Peppa Pig Shopping Set.

I thought it looked quite promising…
Until I opened it and found that it was made of foam. 😦


Who eats foam?

Oh well. At least I still had my cheerios. Mmmmm… cheerios!

Daydreaming about cheerios

(Yes, I did use quite a lot of Cheerios to make this picture). 🙂
