So yesterday was my 19th birthday, and for the last week or so my mum and boyfriend have been all shifty together planning my present. I had an idea about what they were getting me as I’d been dropping hints that I wanted a fish tank for a few weeks.
On Wednesday night Ray and mum shut me away in the room so they could wrap my presents and get ready for my birthday. After 3 hours they finally came out at and Ray said goodbye so he could go home and get some sleep as he said he had some last minute bits to do in the morning.
I woke up at around 8 on my birthday when Ray arrived with a bunch of flowers and my card, but he said I had to get ready quickly as my dad was picking us up at 9 to take us to get part of my present. By this point I was really suspicious as I hadn’t been allowed in my mums room all night because my present was in there. So dad arrived and took us to Chiltern Aquatics Shop, where he told me to pick out two Koi fish. It was pretty clear then that he’d gotten me the fish tank id been hinting about so I was really excited, so I picked two Koi’s and rushed back to the car so I could go and put them in their new home.
When we got back he brought my new tank into my bedroom and set it all up so it would be ready for them. After the fish had settled in we had some lunch and then I opened the rest of my presents.
In the evening Mum, Dad, Raymond and I went to Nando’s for dinner. We had a lovely meal and when we came home and got ready to go out. After having a slice of birthday cake we went to meet my friends a Wetherspoons for drinks.
All in all I had such a lovely day, and im so happy with my presents. I’m going to do another post with pictures of what I got and my fish.
