… at home!
When you’ve been together nearly 20 years & life is busy with kids & work, you don’t always want/need/can afford to go out to spend time together. It’s all very well & good enjoying a romantic meal for 2 in a fancy restaurant where you’re waited on hand & foot, & believe me I love it, but it can be just as much fun, if not more, if you cook together.
When you’ve been together for so long, it’s important to find new ways to keep the romance alive. Date night at home is something we have been doing for the last couple of years. We chose something that we can both get involved in cooking, prepare it while the kids are having a quick & easy Friday night meal (usually while drinking gin – us not them!), then eat together when they’ve gone to bed, & enjoy a nice bottle of wine. Then it’s ice cream & a movie curled up in front of the fire!
No posh frocks, fancy hair or makeup.
Just comfy pj’s & bare skin!
