Journalling reads: When it comes to your birthday we have never really had much luck. Every year something goes wrong and the day never turns out as we planned, but usually we make the best of it, and you usually end up having 2 birthday cakes (at least) as a kind of compensation. But this year was the worst so far we planned a birthday party but changed our minds because I was feeling too ill to cope with other people’s kids. We planned a meal at Fire and Stone but then you changed your mind. We looked at going to see Toy Story 3 as a family and then having a meal at Oxy or ordering dominos pizza. At the end of the day none of our plans meant anything because on your birthday, we ended up being homeless, having no money and sleeping on Grampy’s floor. We planned to go swimming but we ended up missing the swimming session because everything took longer then it should have done and our last ditch plan to go to the park was ruined when it rained. We did end up going to the small park by Grampy’s house and we did light the candles on your cake, but there was nothing else that made it seem like a birthday. You had already had your birthday presents from us and Nana, and the only other person you usually get a gift from is Lisa. It broke my heart a little more when you said it was the worst birthday ever. I am so sorry Lukas, I really did try and make your day special but I failed miserably at it. I promise you as soon as we are settled in the new house, I will make it up to you. Maybe we can have a half birthday celebration as a second chance to make it amazing. I only hope that we have officially used up our bad luck quota and next year you will finally get the perfect birthday Lukas!
