    I don't know what to ask for. There is nothing I 'need'.

    So, what did you get?

    I got £20 of petrol from my parents and a couple of bits of jewellery from friends. My family are poor, so that was quite a lot. I ended up selling my car and using the £20 for a secondhand jacket for the winter and the car money for uni savings. The jacket is still going strong!

    Party-wise, I was going to have a house party (therefore, free) but all of my friends cancelled the day before so I just went and got a milkshake from caffe Nero on my own :P

    I got a swarowski necklace which I can in the end give my children. I really appreciate it as my family arent the most rich.

    I got money from all of the family - came to a handsome amount by my standards (which isn't exactly a lot by other people's standards and my parents aren't rich). It's still sitting in my account (thankfully). From my friends (mostly girls) I just got cards (including a Transformers card and also a Princess Cinderella card - hilarious! ), and one girl got me a bunch of things that was supposed to remind me of my childhood - i.e. power rangers stuff and toy aeroplanes etc. which I absolutely loved!

    Did you not explain you weren't their toothbrush? :teehee:

    I don't really remember my 18th. Which is bad considering I'm 19 now. I went for a meal with the family one night I believe then spent the weekend getting hideously drunk.
