Hello fiends! Have you been busy outside recently? I don’t know about where you live, but it has been very rainy this week and so I got very very wet doing my #30dayswild challenge!
Mum is always saying how time flies, and I know what she means this week because it’s been six months since Tim Peake went into space. He returned to Earth yesterday.
Time to put on some weight! What an incredible journey it has been– thank you for following & see you back on Earth! pic.twitter.com/ffAhPvsAFv

It is hard to believe all of the amazing things he has seen and shared with us in his time up in space. Let’s have a look at some of his best images!
Above is a picture of Tim before he left Earth for space, he has said that he is going to put on lots of weight when he comes back because he lost so much while in orbit.
Below is an image of somewhere in England. Can you guess where?
If you look closely you can see a long winding snake. That isn’t actually a snake, it is the river Thames. This is a photo of London at night. Don’t we make an awful lot of light!
Here is Tim Peake taking a selfie before his first space walk. I don’t know if space walks are for me, I prefer the coast of Ilfracombe!
You might have seen Miss Mouse from CBeebies up in space with him too! He took three very special items with him when he left. A rugby ball and shirt to launch BBC six nations coverage, a tuxedo t-shirt to present Adele with her Brit Award, and Miss Mouse to teach children about space on Show Me Show Me.
DID YOU KNOW in the 1950’s and 60’s the USSR sent dogs into space to test if it was safe for humans to be able to go. I think Tim Peake has a lot to thank us for.
But after all his hard work it was announced that for his services to space research he has been awarded an Order of St Michael and St George in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. Congratulations Tim! I hope you have a lovely week on Earth.
Until next time fiends
