let's party like it's your birthday

I have been away from home since Sunday morning spending time with friends and I can't even remember the last time I had a good nights sleep, but I guess sacrifices have to be made if you want to go out and have a good time.
It just so happens to be my dad's birthday today and I got him a book voucher and an itunes voucher which was clearly out-shined by my brothers present for him which was a brand spanking new camera :|
My mum and I are off to the shops soon to buy some ingredients for a tiramisu we plan to make for my dad so we can surprise him once he comes home from work. Let's hope this will give me some more brownie points after feeling like I failed in the present department..
