Today is our 9th wedding anniversary and I have to admit I have not planned anything special as all funds have been exhausted with all the birthdays in the last month.
Last night hubby had a grumble that we never do anything together……..just the two of us. We always have at least one child in tow and love days out with the family, exploring where we live.
The last time we went out as a couple was 18 months ago to The Print Room – I think he has a point!
For my 40th, hubby has bought us a romantic balloon flight – perfect for some us time, although we will be sharing the basket with 6 other couples.
Getting out as a couple is a challenge for us. We still have two children who are not at school and babysitters cost a fortune these days. There is no more bunging a teenager £5 and telling them to help themselves to whatever is in the fridge. Babysitters charge more than I charge as a childminder – how does that work?
Even chilling out on the sofa with a glass of wine is a thing of the past these days, as the teens stay up longer than I do!!
How do you make sure you spend quality time with your partner?
