I am 23...

[Smile]

Shamelessly self-indulgent, but hey it's my birthday! I'm allowed to be!

Tony is interstate but nonetheless I feel loved - my Mum and siblings rang at 6am my time (thanks guys), I had parcels waiting for me and two movies on the computer from Tony instructing me on where my present (a tinsy teeny jar of Iranian caviar - because I've always wanted to try some) was hidden.

[Big Grin]

It's gonna be a good day.

Of course, here your birthday is tomorrow. But it's already tomorrow there. Only you think tomorrow is today. *eyes cross*

And I'm now having caviar and hot buttered toast for breakfast - and feeling marvellously indulgent about it, I might add.

Thanks Bob, Rivka and Quid! [Smile]

I'm going into shock that you're only 23, though.

Thanks everyone. [Big Grin]

I have had a great day.

I went shopping with my mother-in-law for shoes (as my birthday present) and we had a great time.

Then when I got home...

A little background first. I left organising my party a little late - as in last Sunday. It turns out there are about 6 gazillion other parties in Perth tonight, most of them centered around the law school. So most of my friends were busy - and then some cancelled mid-week.

I was left with two people coming, and I was quite upset. No-one seemed to care that much, and with Tony being away I felt a little abandoned.

Anyway, I got over it and organised a dinner party for the two who are coming - and managed to get one more person. So now it's four for home-made pizzas. Yum.

I got home from shopping to find on my doorstep the most enormous and bright bunch of flowers - with yellow tulips [Smile] - and a bottle of Chandon champagne.

From my friends who can't come tonight.

[Big Grin]

<-- Very Happy Birthday Girl.

I am not *that* young.

So it turns out the flowers and champagne are from my Mum...

Oh well. I'm still loved.

Well, I'm relieved. Since you said she's young, it means I'm young too. Always good to get a second opinion... [Wink]
