    My 18th birthday this year happens to fall the day after my mum and her boyfriends 1 year anniversary and the day before they went on their first date so now im worried that my birthday is going to be overshadowed by their anniversary, they are a very lovey dovey couple and will no doubt do something big to celebrate leaving me feeling left out. Money has been a real issue recently although my mum still tries to splash out on events like this i can only imagine that with her buying an anniversary present (which she will probably go OTT on like she did at christmas) and my birthday presents i will end up finding a reason to cause uproar. So i need some ideas as to what i can do for my birthday that won't be too expensive, i don't particularly want to spend it around a loved up couple

    Spend it with your friends instead of your family? I went out for a meal then clubbing afterwards

    I'd have a family meal on another day, and do something with my friends on my birthday.
