In Tom's work every Bank Holiday weekend they get given an extra day holiday. I can't remember the reasoning for it but I'm always pretty pleased whenever they come around because a, I've usually forgotten it's a bank holiday and b, it's an extra day of shared parenting!
Last bank holiday Wilf was actually in nursery so Tom and I got the day to ourselves. I had a bit of work to do and Tom managed to get a few bits done around the house and then as the weather wasn't all that great we decided to have an indoor picnic. The last time we'd had a picnic indoors was when Tom and I were in our flat, the first place we lived together before we got the house and settled down a bit. I had come home from work to find a vintage hamper he had picked up that day, a super cute dress and lots of cakes. It was so sweet, I wish I had been blogging at the time so I would have had a picture of it.
Anyways we decided to take a break from the day and have a little indoor picnic. Tom came home with macarons the day before and it's really making me excited for our honeymoon later next month (!). It was nice to have an hour or so to chat about our upcoming wedding and break away. It will be the first time we'll be without Wilf and is quite exciting to think about spending so much couple time together alone. We have a few trips planned, I'm really excited about the vintage markets and eating out in the evening.
Here's to more couple time!
We were sent a little hamper from Lindemans with the cute blanket and some bottles of wine, thanks guys.
