Firstly, i woke up, and spent my morning on twitter. That part you guys already know. I also recieved a birthday phone call from my dad and hung out my waiting pile of washing. Then, a little later in the day Mum took me out for lunch, where we bought obscene amounts of delicious food that we couldn't finish and subsequently took home in little doggy-bags. Then we browsed the shops for a little while, Mum bought me some nice jewellery as a present, and then we rushed home and I got ready for work in a huge screaming hurry**.
Work itself wasn't bad at all. Working on your birthday has the potential to completely ruin the day (I know this only too well from experience) but it seemed to do only the opposite for me :). Everyone wished me a happy birthday, and they even got me a cake :D. It really was just 5 hours of funtimes during which I had to help a few customers. I had multiple visits from friends and family who came to wish me happy birthday. It barely felt like work. I really think this is how work should feel EVERY day, but then we'd have no way of making birthdays special now, would we? ... OK, moving on...
After work finished, my brother*** and our shared friends came to pick me up, and we went home for a late birthday dinner. We (my brother and I) recieved presents, we ate home-made pie (which was heaps better than the meat pies we're all used to - you know, the frozen things containing God-knows-what that you heat up for an instant meal. Basically, one big pile of bleugh) for dinner and stuffed our faces with cake...
I am positive there was some wine consumption in there somewhere, but I really don't remember where... :S
All in all, fantastic day. Best birthday I've had in years. Here's hoping for an even better one next year :D:D:D:D
*EDIT: More like WEEKS... :/
**I wasn't actually huge and screaming in this hurry, those particular descriptive words are merely to enhance your visualisation of JUST how much of a hurry I was in.
***I should mention that it was my Brother's birthday this day as well... him being my twin and all. Incidentally, we were born on my cousin's first birthday, so the three of us all celebrate on the same day :).
