Looks like it must be my time of the month to get on here and have a rant, sorry, I mean a discussion, about life in general and especially romance.
Currently my life is somewhat centred around babies, toddlers and small children. Let me tell you know that new-born twins don’t leave a lot of time left in your day for romance. Even when you only have one baby at a time, (which my four year daughter says would have been more sensible) there isn’t a lot of breathing room to get all misty eyed with the hubby.
Candle lit dinners at expensive restaurants do not work, I can tell you that now, not with four children in tow. Even an evening in front of the box tends to end up with me falling asleep before the end, and my husband eating all the popcorn while I am upstairs putting in someone’s dummy for the umpteenth time.
So what’s a girl to do?
It’s the little things that keep the romance in a marriage going.
Like my husband running a bath for me at the end of the day and taking the time to find the matches and light enough candles to read a book by (or burn the house down, whatever your pleasure).
This massively beats my current bath running capability which would be:
Is there water? Check?
Is it hot and soapy? Check.
In I dive only to discover lack of dry towels within reach etc.
|Alright, he's not quite up to this level, but he does try his best.|
It’s a box of chocolates to scoff during the middle of the night feed.
|Don't tell my dentist.|
It’s hiding the one line love note under my husband’s coffee cup in the morning.
|Putting a love note on the washing line however would guarantee he would never see it...|
It’s a text message at lunch time.
It’s making my husband’s favourite meal (hot dogs!) for tea.
Or putting a drop of my perfume on my husband’s pillow.
All little things, none of them costing the earth in time or money, but all of them make the difference.
What small things make your heart go pitter-pat?
