Hubby’s folks came to us and looked after the kids yesterday so we could enjoy a long relaxed lunch together. It was so nice to leave the house without a buggy, bikes or scooters, changing bag and all the other paraphernalia that usually accompanies us on our outings. Don’t get me wrong I adore my children, but a little bit of time apart that didn’t involve me going to work was very much needed, and gratefully appreciated. Although we said we’d try and do this monthly, it’s been three months since our last date.
We sat in the beer garden of a trendy pub, ate some seriously yummy food, had a few drinks and chatted about all the things we don’t usually get to talk about. Then rather than getting the bus home, we walked an hour and a half in the glorious sunshine instead. Knowing that the kids were having lots of fun with their granny and grandad meant we weren’t worried about them, and didn’t feel guilty about enjoying some us time. The sheer joy on the little fella’s face that greeted us when we got home was absolutely priceless. Such a lovely welcome back 🙂
It really was a blissful day, and a fab way to end the Easter break. What have you lovely lot been up to?
