An anniversary date night. We hardly ever go out as a couple any more. I’m sure that many of you with young children are in the same position. It is expensive to go out, we need childcare and we are so tired from working and looking after the children that a night on the sofa always seems like a better option than going out anyway!
But now that the baby is a little bigger we have been going out a couple of times. The weekend before last we went out for a fabulous dinner with friends – it was so great to be out and socialising without worrying about the children! Last weekend too we celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary and headed into Cardiff for a spot of dinner and cinema to celebrate!
We had dinner in La Tasca in the Brewery Quarter. I haven’t been for a couple of years but it used to be quite a regular haunt of ours. I was a little disappointed to find that it has become a little more ‘commercial’ than it used to be and the food wasn’t absolutely amazing like it used to be but we had a nice quick bite to eat there. Dessert was definitely a highlight!
We then went off to Cineworld to see Martian in 3D. Not the most romantic choice granted, but it was really good and seeing a 3D film makes me think it was worth seeing in the cinema! We didn’t get back until long after midnight and were really tired – such old things we are now! But honestly it was lovely to have time together and we are hoping to bring back regular date nights – although not all of them will be this expensive!
