My flatmate says everything changes when you turn 30.

The illusions of youth are replaced by rock solid realities.

Anyway, I'm playing it very cool this birthday -

a couple of beers, Chinese takeaway, watching telly.

My friends are good about it.

They know the last thing I want on my plate is a big splashy glittery hoo-ha.

Th-they are clear about that.

ALL:
Surprise!

- Leo! Leo, where do you think you're going?

- Out.

Get back in here. Go on!

The boy's come back. Yahoo!

Happy birthday. I wanted to show you where you are now on the medicine wheel.

Out of the house of the hunter, which is a very solitary house

- and into the house of the warrior.

- Great. I'm just going to the loo.

Look what I've made. Taste it. Happy birthday, Leo.

- Nice?

- It's lovely, yeah.

- Hey, Leo. Happy birthday.

- Hi, thanks.

I've always wanted a surprise party but somehow it's never happened.

It's probably because I'm waiting for it.

I'm just going to the loo, OK?

Mm! Guess who it isn't.

- Ummm. Baby Spice?

- Correct. Here, open it now. I can't wait.

- I'll take that.

- Oh, thanks.

- Oh!

- I paid for it. It may look like I didn't but I did.

- That's great. It's your book!

- It's too heavy, isn't it?

- Throw it away. I don't mind.

- I'll put it with the other pressies.

- You'll enjoy it. I learned a lot.

- Great.

- Ange? Where's Darren?

- I'm not going to tell you if you're going to give him a bad time.

- I was just going to thank him.

- You're such a terrible liar.

Relax and have a good time.

I bought you a present. You'll love it.

See you in a minute.

Hi, thanks for coming.

How are you? Are you all right? Good to see you.

Good to see you. Thanks for coming. I'll see you in a minute, OK?

"This isn't so bad, actually. I got through the top floor in one piece."

- Oh, hi there. How are you?

- I'm fine.

You've lost some weight, haven't you?

- Are you coming down?

- What are you up to?

Well, you know, just keeping busy.

Hi. How are you? Fine.

"Wonder how Darren found half these people."

See you in a minute.

Hi!

Hi.

- I hope you don't mind my...

- No.

It takes a while to get used to it. Just check my look.

- How are you?

- Pretty good, pretty good. you know.

I'm going to Thailand in a couple of weeks.

Really? That's a long way.

Yeah. Well, it's something I've been meaning to do for a long time.

Anyway, happy birthday.

Yeah, thanks.

It's for Sal, somewhere.

Happy birthday, Leo.

Thanks.

"Now I remember why I didn't want this."

- Darren.

- Hello, birthday boy.

Listen, I asked the boys from downstairs and guess what?

- It turns out they're brothers.

- Hi.

- I told you... I'll get him back in five minutes.

- It was getting interesting.

Darren. Darren, what were you thinking? This is all I need.

I'm sorry, it's your birthday. I thought you might like it.

There's absolutely no-one here that I want to see.

Would you like me to send them all home?

- It's too late for that now, isn't it?

- Yes, it is.

Have I done a bad thing?

Come back to the party, little Leo.

No. No. I'm going to stay here and watch telly.

No-one will notice.

SHOOTING ON TV:

I really thought you were making progress.

I thought, "Marvellous. Leo's finally decided to live his life."

Wrong again.

Bye.

Hm.

"That's not fair. I WAS living my life. But things got very complicated."

- OK, start with his age.

- He's 35.

Well preserved 37 at a pinch.

- But gorgeous.

- Wait for me. Can't a girl have a pee? It's a long ride from Heathrow.

Here's your stuff.

- Darren, bags, Leo cologne.
