Do be careful. Depending on how heavily you "celebrate" on Saturday, you won't be fit to drive until very late on Sunday, or possibly not until Monday. Apparently now something like 70% of drink-drivers are caught the morning/day after, as the limit is that much lower now. The old rule of 1h/unit + 1h now leaves many people well over the DD limit.
this might be a signature

NOOOOOOOOOOOO! That's not the way it works mate!

Around these parts (Lancashire, at any rate) it is customary for the person whose birthday it is, to bring Cream Cakes into work for his/her fellow employees!

As it happens.....mine can be an eclair, thanks!!! :wink:

It's the same round these parts too, so I guess it's a global thing!

I cant believe you still celebrate b/days Tim, I stopped celebrating them when I was, er, about 10 I think. Actually I never really celebrated at all.

Still get smashed as often as possible though, just dont need an excuse!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

I use it as a excuse to meet up with old friends etc and have a get together as some have moved away, have kids etc so its not always possible, the days of birthday cakes and "parties" are long gone.

Also you are doing your bit for the environment, Tim, by NOT having all those candles on yer cake!! :lol:
Imagine the size of your carbon footprint, and all that wax burning!

You clearly failed in persuading your mates that kids are the root cause of all evil!
