WoW – Jimmy James’ Collection

Jimmy James has a treasure box

It’s Write on Wednesday time again. I missed last week, but this week I got inspired.

I know you’ve been wanting to hear more about Jimmy James, at least my kids have, so this week is dedicated to him. It’s also great as it gives me an idea of where to take his story.

Jimmy James was nearly in tears. His beloved magic socks were falling apart, his toes were poking through them and Mum had declared that it was time to say goodbye.

He opened his treasure box. In reality it was an old shoe box he had rescued from the bin, but to him it was much, much more. Inside held a collection of objects he had accumulated while on his adventures.

There were the sticks that had appeared in his pocket after he had learned how to make fire from the aboriginal man in the Museum. There was the bullet shell he had picked up at the Shrine of Remembrance from the Digger. There was the moon rock he had picked up when he visited the Moon via the Planetarium, and many more objects.

It had been a wonderful year and now it was coming to an end, it was time to say goodbye to his magical orange and purple spotted socks.

“JJ, come downstairs, Grandma’s here.” Mum called from downstairs. Jimmy James carefully packed away his collection of treasures and headed down.

“Hello, Jimmy James,” Grandma greeted her grandson and handed over a wrapped parcel. A smile spread across Jimmy James’ face…
