My Sixth Birthday
On my 6th birthday I woke up. I went to see if mum was awake. She wasn’t there but there was a map to my mate’s house so I got dressed and biked to his house. I put my bike on its stand and knocked. No one opened the door. I was sure this was the right house I said to myself. Or was it 84. I was 100% sure that it was this house so I biked to 84 but then I realised it was my birthday. So I turned around and headed home and there was my family waiting all along so then I got ready and went to Chipmunks. That was the best birthday I ever had. Meanwhile I was in the car just asking “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” I suppose it got quite frustrating so I stopped and then we got there so I got out of the car.
