Friday was my 22nd birthday – starting to feel old now! They say 21 is when you are a ‘fully fledged adult’, so I guess now I’m 22 I’ll have to grow up a bit! The first sign that I am getting old was when one of the players in the All-Star game on Wednesday was younger than I am (Starlin Castro for the Cubs – born in 1990).
Anyway, I had a great birthday. Vicky came home from Sheffield for the weekend and made me an awesome cake. It’s a giant cupcake, decorated with vanilla icing and little flowers. She stayed up until 3am baking it, and somehow managed to turn her fingers red with the food colouring. She also almost set fire to it after I had blown the candles out – she didn’t realise that one of the candles was a re-lighting candle and left it on the plate. She soon realised when the cake started smoking though!
I will have more pictures when someone decides to send me them. For my birthday, I got tickets to see Jason Manford in October, a Tom and Jerry DVD box set (taking me back to my childhood), some books about Chicago, a Final Destination box set, and a box of fudge. All brilliant presents, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Next up, it’s Frank’s 18th birthday. I can’t believe my little brother is 18! That’s another reason I’m feeling old. His birthday is on Wednesday, so I’ll post some pictures soon.
