Date night

A couple Saturday’s ago, I actually got to have dinner with my wife.

Just my wife.

For the first time since January.

It wasn’t the first time we’d been without the kids. We went to a Press Association awards banquet in February, but that was with a bunch of people.

Since Ella was born in January, we hadn’t managed to enjoy a nice meal just between the two of us.

The parents on the soccer team we coached (once again using that term loosely) pitched in at the end of the season and bought us a gift certificate to a decent restaurant nearby to show us their appreciation (mainly their appreciation that they didn;t have to coach).

So we convinced Brooke’s parents to take the kids for a couple of hours, and we had a date. We had conversation and we didn’t have to police anyone.

The food wasn’t quite what we’d hoped for, but I don’t think it mattered. It was the chance to eat like adults that was important.

I just hope it’s not another 10 months before we get the chance to do it again.
