I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had some pretty amazing birthdays over the years. When I was little, I was slightly obsessed by the story of Humpty Dumpty. I would demand that my mother make me a Humpty-theme cake every year. Basically a cake that looked like a brick wall with a little egg in costume on top of it. I think mum even made little top hats for the eggs.
One year I decided to be a bit different and asked for a green caterpillar cake. I had my party at our local town swimming pool pretty much every year I lived in Kununurra. Mainly because my birthday is in November and it’s about 45 degrees Celsius outside. Also because it meant that mum and dad would hire the big floating bouncy castle for us (and who wouldn’t like a big floating bouncy castle).
For my 18th birthday, I celebrated with two friends in Northern Italy, and I made them eat pizza every night for an entire week. After that I had some pretty cool birthdays at uni, where my friends would surprise me by decorating the whole apartment and baking me a cake before I woke up (kind of easy because at uni I rarely got up before 11am).
My housemates ‘streamered’ the doorway to my room…
