For a month my boyfriend and I had been organising a surprise 30th birthday for a friend of ours. Getting thirty-five odd people who were attending to keep this a secret from him (which is not easy when you pretty much see him every day) was proving very difficult.
Still the big day came. The theme was 'Dirty Thirty'.
Everyone got the to bar we hired out for the evening, on time with regular updates from the boy who was with the birthday boy watching the rugby.
As they were outside making their way in we all gathered around for the big surprise. He had no idea until he was coming down the stairs when he thought it was unusually quiet down there. We all had an awesome evening drinking, chatting and admiring everyones costumes for the night!
