Just me and him...

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, September 29, 2009

It's just been me and him together since yesterday afternoon. It feels strange... in a wonderful way... just like before we were married all those years ago.

For the first time in over 3 years we have had all 4 kids staying away for the night, thanks to my amazing parents who decided they'd like to have them stay for a day or two.

And although we haven't been away to a fancy motel or tripping around anywhere in particular, we have definitely been enjoying our time together.

I slept in until 9:30 am (until master 10 decided to phone me to ask a question). We've been eating breakfast in bed (mmmm french toast), walking, watching our favourite DVDs, listening to amazing music, eating out, sight seeing (check out that crazy house in my pics), relaxing at home, talking without being interrupted and buying the odd treat without needing to buy x6! I even found one of my most favourite fruits at the orchids... lemonades (not that that has anything to do with anything).

Just like Gail (from Delightfully Diva-ish) said in her post today, we are a team, and we need to make time for 'us' more often.

I definitely was in need of some time to relax and rest.

Better go, more relaxing waiting for me to do...

    so funny about your master 10 ringing you still :)

    And I definitely understand about the having to buy x6 of everything!!
    turns buying a small treat into a major purchase!

    Enjoy xo

  2. Yay for you guys! We are planning an overnight drop off in the New Year (inlaws live down the line). We try and do a night every now and then with my sister, but haven't gone for days and night yet. Looking forward to it!

    Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow!

  4. I agree with Widge, just hanging together with no kids sounds like BLISS! Enjoy!

  5. Wow it must be really really quiet at your house!

  6. You do need that time without the kids. Some day they will be grown and gone though, so you have something to look forward to, but also to dread!
