Ivena Smailes aka “Aunty Ivy”, a feisty resident at the Addison Court Care Home in Crawcrook, England, decided that she only wanted one thing for her 105th birthday – to have her cake “delivered by a fireman with tattoos”. The crew at the neighboring Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service were more than happy to oblige. In an interview with the Chronicle Live, employee Debra Carter said that Aunty Ivy has a “fantastic sense of humour”
On her bucket list this year she wanted a cake delivered by a fireman with tattoos. We’ve managed to find one and the fire brigade have been fantastic about it; they were arguing over who was going to climb the ladder and deliver it to her. …No one would believe she’s 105, she doesn’t look it and she’s got a fantastic sense of humour. She even had her first selfie today to celebrate.
