my birthday!!! woohoo! although waking up on the floor after not much sleep wasnt the best start! so i had to head back to house to collect my parcel from back home and had 4 hours to get there and get back as i was meeting others at 1 to head to the beach for a barbie.
the journey should have taken an hour and a half there but of course, nothing runs smoothly! end up taking the wrong tram, going around the city, back towards st.kilda then out to camberwell! except it wasnt the right line i wanted to camberwell so end up getting off and calling a cab to take me there! he waited for me to get parcel and luckily took me to another tram line that went straight back to st.kilda! opened my prezzies on the tram not realising there would be lots of pretty bits of tissue paper- oops! all over the tram! make it back in plenty of time!
so a group of us head to the beach (well, a bit of grass just beside the beach!) with lots of food, alcohol, ace weather and excitedness (well, from me anyway!).
after everyone had been drinking all day no-one was up for too much so we had a few drinks in the bar, some bubbly downstairs in the kitchen, and a boogy at a place called vineyard. apparently its the place to be on a sunday and one of the guys with us knows the owner so we didnt even have to queue up! check me out- vip! it was totally packed, u literally couldnt dance on the dance floor! good music, a live band for some of the time. an awesome birthday in oz.
