This 105-Year-Old Woman Had Only One Birthday Wish – A “Fireman With Tattoos”

Ivena Smailes just celebrated her 105th birthday, but not in the way you’d probably expect. Because Ivena asked for a “fireman with tattoos” to deliver her birthday cake, and guess what? She got her wish!

Ivena, who is also known as “Aunty Ivy,” is a resident at Addison Court Care Home in Crawcrook, Tyne and Wear, UK. Despite requesting her special birthday present, she probably didn’t actually expect it to happen… until a fireman climbed through her third floor window and presented her with a Victoria sponge cake!

“She’s got a fantastic sense of humour,” said care home worker Debra Carter. “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.” Happy birthday Aunty Ivy!

That's so nice of the local fire department. Making people happy is such an important thing especially for a senior. Her birthday I hope was everything she wanted
