Tony has worked in the beautiful West Yorkshire town of Ilkley for many years and The Box Tree restaurant is somewhere I have always wanted to visit. So as a treat for my 44th birthday Tony booked us in for a rare lunch date together to experience this prestigious restaurant and spend some much needed quality time together.

MY PERFECT DAY!

MY PERFECT DAYIMG_0667

As much as I love dressing up & going out, as someone who leads a very busy life my perfect day is a Sunday at home with my family.

Being the business owner of a Theatre school I work most evenings during the week & all day Saturday so I very much look forward to my favourite day of the week which is Sunday, especially if we have plans to just stay at home & around our village. The kids are often busy on Sunday’s with various hobbies & my work can often run into Sunday’s too so when I see a free Sunday coming up in the diary I’m a very happy girl!
