Date night, I love the idea but am crap at following up the concept! Ian and I last had a ‘date’ back in January for his birthday, we’ve since had valentines and my birthday both of which we opted for a cosy night in, they were lovely don’t get me wrong, nights in are my favourite after all but they quickly turn into us both being on our phones and becoming part of everyday routine.
It was time to get that over due date night in the diary and with the bank holiday approaching it was a perfect time for Sonny to enjoy sleeping at Grannies whilst we went out for some delish food and maybe the odd drink or two in the sunshine!
After having children the simple concept of just getting out of the door without a little one in tow is so strange, it feels so freeing! Dressing up is a nice feeling too, how often do we just get home and put our comfies on?? It was nice to get smartened up, get the lippie out and not having to take a massive rucksack with me!
For once our dinner time discussion wasn’t all about Sonny, it was phone free (apart from obligatory food pics) and relaxed.
Of course we promised ourselves we would book another one in and this time I’m determined to not leave it another 5months plus it doesn’t have to be an evening, a casual stroll childfree or a breakfast date would be just as nice!
Do you have any date night plans?
