A To Z Date Ideas

1 comment
I know it doesn't seem that long since Christmas but Valentines Day is just around the corner. One of resolutions last year was to make more time for each other, and spend time together as a couple. We did really well and managed lots of date days and nights. It's so nice to step away for life for even just a few hours and spend quality time with each other. This year we will be doing alphabet dating again (we did it a few years ago) The aim is to try and schedule at least 2 date days or nights in each month that begin with the letters of the alphabet, by the end of the year you will have completed 26 different days. It's a great way to think of new things to do together and if you need inspiration there are so many ideas.

Spending Time Together As A Couple

10 comments
John and I make sure that we spend time together as a couple as often as we can. When you become a parent it's sometimes hard to be anything else except for a Mum or Dad. You have to remember that before baby came along you were you, and if you are in a relationship or you are married you are a couple. Sometimes we lose the chance to be a couple and do couple things but its so important not to. Date nights can be tough but with some planning and a good babysitter they won't be as hard as you think.

I've popped down a few date ideas that John and I have enjoyed so far this year. They are not crazy nights out just simple ideas that will get you out of the house for a few hours away from the kids to enjoy each others company.

Cinema
We love going to see a movie but rather than just going to the local cinema we will head to Odeon and pay for the Gallery experience.

It's not available in all Odeon's but if there is one by you that offers Gallery screening then I would definitely recommend.

The gallery is available for those over the age of 18. There is a separate bar area with comfy seats and unlimited soft drinks, popcorn and nachos for those who purchase a gallery ticket. You then get to watch the movie from a sofa for two.

It makes going to the cinema a bit more exciting and we would definitely recommend it.

Break Out
Last week we visited our local Break Out. You may have heard of something similar basically we were locked in a motel room for one hour and we had to find clues to help us escape.

I wasn't sure what to expect and whether I would actually enjoy it but I did, it was so much fun.

When we arrived at our chosen game we were shown inside the room. There was a TV screen that had a countdown timer on. You get just one hour to escape. It was tough at times and you are literally on your hands and knees searching for clues to help you unlock padlocks, solve clues and eventually escape. We did with just 39 seconds to go.

It was a completely different idea for a usual date night but it was lots of fun and we laughed so much.

Concert/Theatre
John and I like to visit the theatre at least four or five times a year and we are always looking for concerts to attend too.

The theatre is probably my favourite date night and we are lucky to have a few theatres close by. We have watched Ghost, Dirty Dancing, Sister Act, Hairspray to name a few. Then we planned a more exciting date day/date night by visiting Birmingham to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and London to watch Wicked. We just went for the day on the train to help reduce costs and we didn't need the boys to be watched overnight.

Going to a concert together is lots of fun too. Unfortunately for John he has had to watch Steps, 5ive, Spice Girls, the Vengaboys and more cheesy pop which wouldn't be something he chooses to watch but he does it so we can have  good night together and we always do.

John's concerts are artists like Coldplay, The Script, Snow Patrol, Jimmy Eat World which aren't as fun for me but I will always go along too.

man and woman
Everyones idea of a date night will be completely different. For us we are not interested in going out drinking at the weekend till all hours and feeling ill all Sunday. It's just not us. We've done all that when we were younger, nowadays we would much prefer PJ's, Baileys and a Movie.
