Happy Birthday to me! I’m twelve today. Only one more year and I’m officially a teenager – WOW.
I woke up to my youngest brother (Romy) bouncing on my bed shouting at me to ‘Get up!’ – he couldn’t wait to help me open up my presents. My family sang happy birthday to me and we all had breakfast together. We had… pancakes! Proper American fluffy pancakes. We only get them on our birthdays as a special treat and oh boy was this special. Mum bought chocolate spread, strawberries and even whipped cream!
Angelo and Darius – my older and younger brother – got me this diary. I’m so surprised; it’s perfect! I’m going to write in it as often as I can.
Mum and Dad got me a drum set for my birthday. I’m so excited. It’s my absolute dream to become a professional musician. My friends from school and I - Maya, Nisha and Max – are starting our own band so maybe in a few years’ time you’ll see me at Glastonbury! Haha. Just joking. But it would be cool to do that…
Darius is calling me, I have to go!
Lots of love,
