Ivena Smailes celebrated her 105th birthday this summer. But not how most of us would probably expect. This cute 105-year-old lady asked for a “fireman with tattoos” to deliver her birthday cake. Well, guess what? She got her wish!
Ivena, known as “Aunty Ivy,” is a resident at Addison Court Care Home in Crawcrook, Tyne and Wear, UK. Although she made this unusual – for an old lady – request, she probably didn’t actually expect it to happen… Well not until a strong fireman from the Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service climbed through her third-floor window and presented her with a Victoria sponge cake!
“She’s got a fantastic sense of humor. On her bucket list this year she wanted a cake delivered by a fireman with tattoos. For her birthday last year she tried to get us to climb a tree. She always tries to find something we can’t do.” said care home worker Debra Carter.
Happy Birthday, Aunty Ivy!
She got a present she really wasn’t expecting!
