It's my birthday today
and I'm having a virtual 

Can you come?

There's going to be

(friends 'found' on the internet)
and fun games

and I'm going to wear my
bestest party frock
with the secret pocket.

I hope you can come,
my lovely friends.
(that's a mighty big CAKE
for me to eat all on my own!)

ps X Factor Final tonight,

SO bummed I missed your party, and I feel so bad since it would have been so much more fun with me there! But seriously, I hope you had a wonderful day and got totally spoiled - from what I know of your family, you probably did!
