There's a few benefits of having a very late birthday. The first one is that, since my birthday's in the Christmas holidays, I don't see everyone that gets me a present. I like to open the presents I get on my birthday and then I start thinking forward to the people who I'm still to get a present from. I know that's really bad, but who doesn't like getting presents? The longer it drags out, the more fun I have because I like waiting for presents! The second benefit is that my birthdays's after Christmas so people are able to get me really lovely things that they can't get for other people because, usually, they're so expensive. But when it's my birthday, the sales are on, so people can get really nice cheap things.
This week I've been given various presents from a few people I didn't see in the holidays and actually, there's still a few people who claim to have presents to give me. I feel so lucky! I've already been given a Hollister top, sweets and a heap of jewellery. I have such generous friends!
