It started out a wee bit earlier than I had intended it to be. I went to be at 9 and put my light out at ten. Then I slept until 3:30 am when a gorgeous little brother of mine asked me if he could hop in my bed. I told him no and instead he hopped into Eden's. But he had woken me up and after going to the toilet and getting a drink, I still couldn't get back to sleep. Hence I spent the next hour trying to get to sleep, then decided I couldn't be bothered as I had planned to Skype one of my friends from the U.S. at 5:00 am. So I got up. I Skyped my friend which was really fun! She had seen Thor 2 on her birthday which is just a few days before mine. We talked about a lot of stuff. After that I watched Sir Gadabout with the little kids, went outside and then watched a bit more of Sir Gadabout. After that it was present opening time! I got all the books I wanted plus, the Sherlock DVD's. :) Saxon gave me a card with an announcement that he would be taking me to see Thor: The Dark World. Eden gave me a blow up mattress for going on the pool and twenty dollars (she loved giving presents and is very generous) and Autumn gave me earrings, which I was very happy about. :)
I had my breakfast and then we left for the cinemas. I wore my birthday crown all the time we were in town. :) After the movie finished we came home and I spent a while up in my room having a look at my books. Reading mostly 'The Sherlock Files' which is basically a visual guide to the series. :)
Braedon and Anna-Lisa came and brought Eden home from work as well. They also brought me two presents. Or two different lots of presents. One being a headband as Braedon had been fiddling with one of mine and had accidentally broken it, so they gave me another headband and two cute little guinea pigs. :) A boy and a girl. Anyone like some guinea pigs? Because I am going to have a LOT to give away! They're Abyssinian Guinea Pigs I think and their names are Olga da Polga and Percy. :)
Dinner was very nice. Beef Stroganoff with potatoes and my favourite vegetables. It was interesting not having to do any of the jobs and just being able to sit there and watch everyone while I read.
Then we had dinner and cleared away for my cake. Can you guess what it was? A violin for Sherlock Holmes. Can I just say that my Mum is so talented when it comes to making cakes? After that we had it, I took some of the little kids to bed, and then came down stairs to watch 'The Reichbach Falls' with Mum, Eden and Saxon. Then I went to bed. By the time I put out my light I had been awake for twenty hours, and I was pretty tired. And I was fifteen.

So I had a very good day, and am now read for all the toils and triuphs that fifteen will hold. Bring it on!
