The Big 30

The Big

Well the day came on the 5th of March for my big 30th birthday I woke up to a lovely homemade breakfast from my loving partner Jonathan and my amazing daughter Millie and my cheeky monkey son Alfie.

Me at 30 .

My pressize from jonny was a extra add on zoom lens for my Nikon D3100 that jonny also lovingly got me and I have to say I’m well impressed with the Nikon.

I felt so bombarded by shop you go into offering photo shoots for silly prices then you feel so guilty if you did not buy anything from them plus it’s also one of my hobbies is  phototherapy so this just was the perfect gift for me J .

And I know it can be a bit pricey but its well worth it .


We both agredd that it would be nice to go to harrogate as we have not been in a long time and fanced a change ,weather was not that good but it did not dappenour spiriets.

The drive took about 45 minutes – 1 hour, it was so nice to get out with just jonny and me I think we take for granted sometimes that its so nice to hold hands and have time out from the kids I have found this out that it is so inportant each month to have time out for youeselfs otherwise I belive it can get alittle stresful if you don’t .

One of my favoruit places for Tapas is La Tasca-    website.

Its speciality tapas restaurants bring an authentic, vibrant taste of Spain to the UK .

I am a vegitraina and I have found lots still of exciting new veggie dishes to try, my best dish I love has to be patas bravas with cheese .

This is Fried potato dish, with spicy tomato sauce. And you can add cheese aswell as a xtra . I have also found a new dish that is so yummy called HUEVOS CABREAOS that is  a  Amazing Spanish take on egg and chips,also I love the MONTADITO 'LA – bread Topped with garlic, Catalan sauce, rustica tomatoes and goat's cheese.

I find the asmaspher so nice and the service is just right sometimes it can get alittle busy on weekends and cant be waiting for seats but apart from that its very nice and well worth a visit, and they do cater for kids .

If you would like to look at the full menue its
