Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and I am 16 now! The big 1 6.
To be honest I don’t feel any older and I feel no different. Not that I was expecting to suddenly feel really old. One thing that always happens every year, is for a few weeks or so after my birthday if I have to write or say my age I end up saying the wrong age. So for the next couple weeks or so if someone asks me how old I am, I’ll end up saying “15-uugghh-I mean 16!” It happens every time.
The day itself wasn’t really any different from a normal day. My parents and sister went to work, I stayed at home. Some of you might think that spending your birthday alone is sad, and admittedly I was one of those people. I was so sad when I found out my sister couldn’t get the day off. However, I realized it’s not so bad as people say, I could watch anything on the TV, I could turn up the stereo as loud as I wanted and have a freaking party if I wanted. Well not that loud, my neighbours would be pissed otherwise.
Another thing I could do is that I could eat anything I wanted for breakfast without my parents nagging in my ear saying “you can’t eat that for breakfast! Eat some cereal like a normal person.” Well guess what Mum? I’m not a normal person. I am a crazy, loud and annoying wack-job and I’m gonna have Ben and Jerry’s for breakfast because it is Goddamn delicious. BTW, Cookie Dough is the best flavour, no contest.
My dad suggested I make a cake or some cupcakes since I like “all that chiefing so much”, yeah, like having to make your own birthday cake on your birthday isn’t depressing. However, I got bored….and hungry…. I then made a batch of chocolate muffins….and they were scrumptious…. don’t judge.
I accompanied my well balanced and healthy breakfast with a cappuccino with a dash of sugar, and then I had an Espresso Macchiato, chilled.
Later on I went to my Granddad’s house for a couple of hours. It was always my Nan who would organise days out and stuff like that and Granddad isn’t used to doing that, but bless him he really tried to do fun things. We had boiled eggs and soldiers for lunch, in which he boiled the eggs just the way I like them, we watched ‘The Sound of Music’, a classic we both love, and he bought two creme doughnuts from Sainsbury’s and put a candle in mine which made me smile.
Usually I stay there until 5pm and then my dad will pick me up after work and take me home. However, my Granddad had to go for an appointment at the hospital in the next town on from ours so he dropped me off home at 4:30pm. It wasn’t long before mum and dad came home but then my Granddad turned up with my sister. Turns out he was only picking her up from work because she finished early, he had no appointment at all.
We all had hot drinks in which I had another cappuccino, and my birthday cake. Usually I end up having Victoria Sponge with too much fondant icing on it which makes it a little too sickly and I have been asking for a chocolate cake for years and never had one. However, this year thanks to my sister I finally had a Thornton’s chocolate cake. After we finished eating I opened cards and presents. One of my cards from my friend Becca had a scratch card in it for 80 grand, but I didn’t win anything. I got some birthday money, some chocolate, a cooking Dictionary book and then I had a brand new laptop. I have never had one all to myself before, I have always borrowed my sister’s laptop which was left to her in Nan’s will. However, I now have my own to use for my blogs and for college. I won’t use it yet though as my mum’s co-worker Mark is an IT expert so he’s going to set it all up for me, I will be able to start using it in the next couple of weeks.
For tea I had chips from the best chippie in town because the one on my estate is terrible. I had it last Thursday and it was too greasy and only half cooked. That was half the reason why I was sick last Friday. Before we went to the chippie we took a detour to McDonalds so I could get my favourite Mocha Frappe drink. As I had four coffees yesterday, I shit you not, my fart smelled like a strong coffee. Some of you may be grossed out, but everyone farts and it was awesome!
So that’s all I have for you guys today! Viola over and out xxx
