My birthday was a few days ago. We usually invite all my friends and go to a party place or a hotel for a pool party or something like that. With the coronavirus around us, we couldn’t invite my friends to celebrate with me this time.
On the morning of my birthday, I woke up and looked outside. It was a lovely day, the sun was already shining and the birds were chirping. I had to wait for Adel to wake up, and then we had croissants with home-made strawberry jam for breakfast. I already planned the menu for the whole day. J
I, Adel, and Adam went outside to play. We had lots of fun on the swings, slide, and the trampoline. Mom filled up the pool too. We just got a new trapeze for the swing frame, and all of us want to be on it all the time. Sometimes we argue, who’s turn it is.
Some of my friends came over (one by one) and stopped outside. We had a great chat. Gosh, I miss chatting with them a lot. Just to be safe, they weren’t allowed to come in and play with me. I wish we could have played in the pool, it is such fun. Maybe next time. I got loads of presents from them: sweets, books, a dress, nail varnish, home-baked buns, a card game (color addict, which is really addictive) and lots of birthday cards. Some of them couldn’t come over, but they also called or texted mom and dad to wish me a happy birthday. It was really nice of them. I don’t even know how they remembered that it was my birthday.
Dad made a BBQ in the afternoon, it was so yummy. We had burgers, corn on the cob, pineapple, and some s’more (roasted marshmallows). They let us roast our own marshmallows over the charcoal, even let Adam.
Then we tried the cake. It looked so pretty, and it was also delicious too. Of course, there was a lot of chocolate in it: chocolate sponge, chocolate cream in the inside, chocolate cream on the outside, and a lot of sweet decorations. I got a huge slice (yummy).
I got a load of presents from my mom and dad too. They gave me face-paint, a decoration for my garden, gardening gloves, sweets, a huge magic ring, and a new bike. The bike is very cool, it has 18 gears. I don’t even know what to do with them, there are so many. J I loved all my presents a lot. I tried the face paint too, it is really fun. Adel painted a lot on mom’s leg.
I had so much fun. It was a really good party, even though it was a home party. I hope from September we can go back to school and have birthday parties like before the coronavirus. I miss my friends. We have a lot of missed chattering to make up for.
