If you’re as unfit as I am, or even slightly asthmatic like I am (hayfever induced!), getting older must be a bitch.
Seriously – I struggled to blow out all the candles on my cake! And the pressure was on because people were looking at me. Staring, as if to say “WTF is wrong with her?!” “Why can’t she blow out those candles?!” And all the time I was thinking “There are sooo many fucking on here! You try and give it a go!”
So for next time, I asked them to just get the numbers themselves rather than individual candles to add up to my age!
