So on Saturday, Hubby and I had the opportunity to have a day out on our own without our little man.
The in laws came up for the weekend so we took the day out to go into Nottingham to do some shopping and enjoy some time with each other. It was just what we both needed.
We managed to get the majority of our Christmas shopping done, (not including each others) – I haven’t even started hubby’s yet!!
We stopped for hot chocolate in the most amazing tea room – The White Rabbit Tea House. It was vintage chic and incredibly beautiful.
I will admit we started at Costa but looked through the window, saw the queue and turned back around. I had heard of this tea room before and it is a little tucked away from the main streets in the City so i was hoping that there would be space.
We ordered 2 hot chocolates and a piece of raspberry & lemon cake. As much as you cannot go wrong with a brand like Costa i was happy to experience a more unique and individual setting.
They also do sandwich lunches and amazing afternoon tea so i will definitely be returning.
So the day flew by shopping, enjoying hot chocolates, plus a trip to Nandos and most importantly having fun.
We did admit whilst sitting in Nandos that we missed little man immensely. It did feel that there was a part of me missing throughout the day, but it was also nice at the same time being out as a couple rather than a family.
There is no shame in admitting that. Hubby and I know we need to make some fundamental changes to our relationship, and we are working on these. Ultimately a happy partnership equals a happy family.
A date day suits us more than an evening. Neither of which happen often due to our families not being local, but we are a pj and bedtime by 9pm sort of couple.
I would recommend a few hours during the day rather than an evening out anytime. We can enjoy ourselves and not be rushing through our meal wanting to get home to bed…
So what’s your choice – a day or a night date? And are you guilty of being a family and not making time for you as a couple?
