Lunch date...



 





There are really good things about being freelance and having school aged kids.  One of those is being able to have lunch time dates with Dan.  

We started this Spring, when the weather became warmer.  Meeting in the park for a picnic, a simple salad or a baguette and cheese.  Enjoying the time to sit, chat, spend time together just the two of us, without the boys.  A midday date seems decadent.  Babysitters are not needed. We don't need a reason, not a birthday or a celebration which would need a night out.  But a simple lunch, just the two of us.

Today, the weather was glorious. We went to the artisan area of Bristol, Christmas Steps. Poked heads around some curious shops and eventually sat and ate tapas at The Urban Wood.  Just the ticket on an Autumn day.

We hope to keep our weekly 'dates'.. with Winter coming we are going to have to be a little inventive, picnics in the park might have to be well thought out.

Do you have a weekly date with your love?

  1. Yes, but it's usually at night with our eldest babysitting!

  2. That's wonderful! We do have weekly dates, every Saturday night at home. We make an easy dinner to eat after the kids go to bed and we watch a movie. We also have every other Friday morning together because of my husband's work schedule and we try to do something fun by ourselves then.

  7. Stephen and I try and go to a new place every week for dinner but for some reason or another we always end up in our local thai shop. We have our own set table now and the owners know our orders and everything. There is something so special about having a routine, especially when other people are involved.

    Maybe next week we can be more adventurous with our date nights :)

  11. Sounds wonderful - a real stolen pleasure. My husband is a High School teacher, so if he is off the children are off (plus our youngest is just two so not at school yet!). There are many benefits to John being a teacher, but having time alone without any small people is not one of them. Keep making the most of your chances! Juliex

  12. Sound perfect. I think it is so good to be able to do these little things, it certainly keeps the spark going. xo

  13. Lunchtime dates seem so decadent and illicit, don't they? I love it when Dave takes a day off and we can have lunch together, even if we stay in and I make omelettes.
