How come your Mom lets you have TWO birthdays?!

Hello everyone! It’s been a few weeks since my birthday live - time flies! I have tried writing this blog post so many times now. I can’t seem to find the words to say what I want to say. I guess this is as good as it’s gonna get 😂

Obviously, 2020 has been... a challenge. I really hope everybody is holding up okay! Kate birthday live was actually meant to be held on the 21st of March, but unfortunately increased COVID restrictions meant that we had to postpone the live the day before it was meant to be held. I was pretty gutted. Everyone had already bought tickets and I was upset at the thought of disappointing people. I had also been working on something really important to me that I was looking forward to sharing with everyone (more on this later), so I was sad that we had to postpone indefinitely.

We held a “birthday party” livestream on the 21st instead, which was lots of fun! And, even though I was really disappointed about the live being postponed, AMUSE and all of you in the Briswota community supported me and helped me have fun despite everything.

You all really surprised me with the beautiful arrangement of blue flowers and white lillies (my favourite flower - how did you know?!), and the artbook! AMUSE also got me flowers, a LEMON CHEESECAKE, and a really touching card. I keep the photobook and card from AMUSE on display in my house, and I look at them often. They always bring a smile to my face! I was so touched by everyone’s support, I didn’t even know what to say....

AND THEN YOU DID IT ALL OVER AGAIN FOR THE RESCHEDULED LIVE???? I am so grateful and so lucky. I love you all. Thank you.

COVID restrictions started to ease, and we were able to reschedule my birthday live to the 25th of July! We were all so excited to be able to perform for an audience again. I was hiding backstage before the show, when Pengi appeared and said “I think you should come with me” with a lil smile. She took my hand and led me to the front of the venue where I saw.... a big blue flower stand! Complete with a little blue basket of lemons! I was surprised by such lovely flowers from everyone in March for my actual birthday, and I was SO touched that you all pulled together to organise something so lovely for me a second time. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed - you made me so happy. Seeing the flower stand made me teary and I ended up just sitting on the floor next to it and having a lil cry, but Luvkii made sure to take some photos of me in that moment before the show!
