My 30th

 

First off, here’s my amazing Birthday cake by the lovely Cakes by Minnie.  I watched Moana recently and was blown away by it, so I was over the moon to have a friend conspire with my S.O. to arrange this surprise for me 😀 The attention to detail is incredible, and I’ve saved the figures from the top to cherish!

Not ones to miss an excuse for cake, the girls at work came up trumps with a box of cupcakes and a bottle of Asti (to be taken home) which I’d never tried before!

Considering I’d only been there three weeks, I was also gifted with this wonderful haul of presents from work ❤

S.O. took me to The Deep in Hull for a Bank Holiday day out, as we were both at work in the days around my Birthday. The queue was absolutely massive but we only waited about 40 minutes. I’d visited a few years ago, and wanted to go again, but when they announced a new Lagoon feature, I wanted to wait until it was finished to visit. As you can see, it was worth it 😀

It’s absolutely incredible. Curved Glass that shows more the further you walk around rocks, anemone, plant life and tropical fish. It was awesome. They’ve homed a few Penguins which is worth seeing, and a few turtles. Even got ourselves a souvenir Fridge Magnet:

All in all, an incredible day. The only spoil on it was the amount of Facebook Parents videoing and photographing their kids all throughout. I’m not opposed to anyone taking snaps but when it’s 10 families in every room, in front of every tank, yourself getting elbowed/pushed out of the way and everyone just recording instead of enjoying the experience, it takes the mystery out of actually visiting, as they have a whole lot to offer. It’s not fair on folks who want to see the exhibits. Just sayin’.
