Happy Birthday to me! I'm twenty-four for anyone keeping count. I am celebrating by going to work (boo!) then for some drinks with my colleagues and then dinner with my parents. It's pretty low-key but I'm one of those annoying people that prefers not to make too big a deal out of it.

My parents bought me a suit and membership to our local cinema, and I'm not swapping presents with my boyfriend until the weekend (his birthday is the day before mine). These beautifully wrapped gifts are from my old housemates, thanks guys!

The battered corners on them are all my fault!

Happy Birthday Harriet! Hope you have a lovely day, you deserve it! I'm very jealous of your cinema membership, that would be a perfect present for me. Might drop some hints about my 21st to my parents now actually!

Happy Birthday!! I also prefer not to make a big hoohah out of my birthday; I've always liked low-key celebrations with close friends and family over large parties. That polka dot wrapping paper is the cutest!
