TODAY I TURNED SIXTEEN
I had quite an amazing birthday.
The day started well. I was woken up by Steffie, Haike, and Jeltje with a breakfast on bed. From them I got two cupcakes and a grilled cheese sandwich. Delicious! They also told me that they were going to buy one of the tank tops for me that they saw in Hamilton which I really liked. Super sweet! Anyway, I enjoyed my breakfast and opened the post which I had gotten from my parents. One was a card in which my parents, brother, and nanny had written something. In the other I got a shirt! I had never been so happy with a shirt. The last four months I have been wearing the same 5 shirts and 2 tank tops. To have something new in the collection was amazing and it was of course great to get post for my birthday.
I then went to look for my phone because I wanted to call my parents. However, I couldn’t find my sim-card anywhere! The day before I had lent out my phone to Siebrand and taken out my sim and now I couldn’t find it. This kind of partially ruined the day. I cleaned out my whole room twice but couldn’t find it anywhere.
Anyway, I continued the day. When I came upstairs everyone sang for me. After this I had to sit through school till four o’clock and then I got to Skype with my parents and brother. I skyped for a really long time and then because of pure luck my friends were also online. So I skyped with two of my friends which was also amazing fun!
Also, my nanny from a long time ago came and visited me. It was really fun to see her and along with her she brought amazing amounts of candy, cookies, and cupcakes. Haha, all the people on the ship are really thankful of her.
What I forgot to tell was that an Argentinean family was docked close to us quite some time and today they had docked next to us. The parents had two daughters aged 14 and the other one turned 11 on the same day as me. So of course it was a double party.
In the evening we celebrated our birthdays. The little girl and I got a big cake and everybody sang for us again. Then we got some free time in St. Georges during which I checked my Facebook and then went back to the boat. Together with some others I stayed up and at around 1 or 2 we went to bed.
Definitely a birthday to remember.
