It’s only two and a half weeks until my birthday party.
I feel like a little kid being so excited about it, but I guess I’ve got reasons to be.
I have been sick for most of the year with glandular fever. If you’ve ever had glandular fever, or been sick for more than a couple of weeks, you’ll know how boring it is, and just how much you can’t wait to get back into the swing of things. At first it’s somewhat nice to have some time to catch up on all your favourite TV shows, until you run out. There is only so much TV you can watch before you start feeling like a potato.
Anyway, I’m fourteen about to turn fifteen, and spending weeks in your room feeling terrible gets old fast. I’ve been feeling much better lately, and started back at school.
Mum must feel like I am up for the challenge because she had me arrange my birthday party all by myself.
“You need to investigate the best function rooms in Melbourne for parties. Make sure you tick of everything on this list.”
And just like that, I became a party planner.
I already knew exactly what I wanted, so it wasn’t like choosing was difficult. I’m not really into kids party games but I really like sport and since I have been in bed for ages, I just want to get back out there with my friends. I found some great function venues. Melbourne has loads of them, but there is this one place really close to the city, they have an ice skating rink and do kids parties.
As soon as I saw it, I knew that was exactly what I wanted to do.
When I came back to mum with my plan, I knew that seeing as she told me I could choose, she wasn’t gonna say no. Everything you could possibly need in a venue for a party was ticked off the list.
All I had to do was send out the invitations and turn fifteen.
