It wasn’t a landmark birthday but a birthday none the less. It’s a shame I only got one slice of my own cake but that’s the problem when you’ve got two teenagers in the house I suppose. We’ve actually started writing things on stuff in the fridge, “DO NOT EAT!”, “FOR DINNER ON TUESDAY”, “FOR PACKED LUNCHES, NOT SNACKING”, and so on because it appears that everything else is fair game. Of course writing “KEEP YOUR SODDING HANDS OFF MY CAKE” in icing would have lessened the aesthetic of the cake.
I was a little disappointed none of the kids asked me why my IQ was on the cake, which I feel is very much the sort of comment I would have made at their age.
Oh well, there’s always next year!
