Today my twin and I celebrate our birthday. In a stroke of good fortune and good planning we are spending it together in our home town on Melbourne. We had to scratch our heads to try and remember the last time we blew out the candles together on home turf. It could have been as long as 14 years ago. Before work and children I would give the entire day over to celebrations. Now I'm a little busier, I try and give it centre stage for a good half-day and impose a rule. No moderation. Eat? Well! Drink? To excess! Spend? With abandon!
