Our birthdays are all in June and September, and September always seems to come around so fast! Harri's birthday is on the first day of spring, and he was really excited about it. I woke up feeling so, so sick on his birthday and felt terrible, but tried to make it fun for him. I gave in and bought him a Giants Guernsey which he was happy about, as he had wanted one for a while.
He was so happy to have his friend Josh come out for tea with us, and to stay the night. He's a new friend that he's made at school this year, and he's a lovely kid. We went to Hogs Breath for tea and Harri had fun, but I just felt so sick, with a temperature, sore throat and cough. I couldn't even really eat and just wanted to come home to bed.
Luckily his friends all agreed, and thought it was heaps of fun too! It's not your usual 18th birthday, but we loved going old school and back to the Bike Centre.
I was actually still sick on his birthday. I ended up with the full blown flu - it was the first time I'd ever had the flu, rather than just a cold and it was awful! I ended up having to ask Mum to come in and help as I couldn't even get out of bed for a few days. I had to have 6 days off work, and was still not well when I went back. I had a cough for the whole month of September, but am feeling much better now, thank goodness. Jay was happy with a cheesecake from the Cheesecake Shop and I think he pretty much ate 3/4 of it himself, over a few days :)
