Ellen’s Birthday by Gareth

Yesterday was a Campesinos! birthday. Always a special occasion. We somehow managed to keep Ellen out of the house all day and Harriet, Aleks and Ollie prepared her a beautiful spread of typical British school-age party food, plus Olives and Flumps. I took a trip to the party store with the instruction of purchasing a banner, hats and things that you blow causing them to make that sort of rasping noise. I failed miserably, somehow managing to purchase mute mouth pieces and cones that were a wall decoration, not hats. Useless. Look at how awesome that banner is though.

In the evening we played Trivial Pursuit (because there ain’t no party like a Campesino! party). Board games are always a massive anti-climax. It ended with the others encouraging me to cheat so we could put an end to our miserable idiocy. I sealed the deal by answering a question with the name of the only Israeli I know who isn’t a footballer.

Ellen’s 24 now, and her presence is like a constant reminder of mortality. Seriously, just since yesterday she looks hugely more haggered. It’s like I’m starring in a reworking of The Picture Of Dorian Gray and she is my portrait. (ONLY JOKING ELLEN, LU)

A very happy birthday to you, Ellen. While old, you’re still closer to 20 than 30. I would give it another year before you start planning your retirement and yelling at kids who stray onto your lawn.
