The other day whilst visiting Wilf's granny, Tom and I got to spend a couple of hours by ourselves. We worked out that the last time this had happened was well over a year ago and so I guess it was well due!
We went to the vintage quarter in Bridport which is such a treat, I wrote about it earlier in the year here. We even stopped for breakfast at the Red Brick cafe and sat in the sun marvelling that we didn't have a toddler to distract. Undoubtedly off course we did end up talking about said toddler a fair bit (he is our favourite subject).
It's hard as a parents sometimes to find the time for time as couple, especially when your family don't live close. In fact Tom and I have only had three 'dates' in the past 19 months! Luckily our lovely neighbour and owner of one adorable 7m old has recently suggested babysitting swaps which I'm really keen to start going!
I always feel all the more excited to see Wilf when I've been away from him for a few hours too, I think time apart is good sometimes and time together as a couple is so important also. Here's to more couple time in the future!
Do you find time out for 'date nights' how do you work it around children if you have them? I'd love to know!
