going the distance

Wednesday, 7 September 2016

Making time for each other as couple is so difficult. The odd date night here and there is great, but I miss the simpler things. Like going for a walk together, just the two of us. Or spontaneous trips to the cinema.

This morning I convinced Dan to take an hour off work and come for a bike ride with me. Ayden was in pre-school for a few hours and the sun was shining - it was the perfect opportunity. We've never been out cycling just the two of us; usually I'm walking with Ayden and Dan is half a mile in front with Dylan and Meryn on bikes or scooters.

We cycled along the sea front, chatting away, just being a couple for an hour. Not mummy and daddy. I think every couple needs that sometimes.

Sometimes, if we can't get out anywhere together, we bring date night to us and sit in the garden, in the dark, with a fire burning and a bottle of wine. We sit there for hours listening to music and chatting. It makes a nice change from slumping on the sofa watching TV.

This month I joined some of the other Channel Mum vloggers to talk about the things we do to keep our relationships alive and kicking. There are some great tips and its nice to hear from other mums about what works for them. You can watch below, and please share your relationship tips in the comments below. I'd love to hear them :)
