Date Night...

Sometimes you just need to spend one on one time with your partner. No kids, no interruptions, just time for the two of you, and this year I am determined to do just that. Quiet dinners for two, walks along the beach and the occasional coffee and conversation.

Last Friday (gee, its been a week already) we decided that a night of fine dinning was in order, so after making sure the kids were fed, we waved goodbye and set off to try out a new Yum Cha & Seafood Restaurant. 

It was divine......

Because there were so many delightful dishes to choose from, making the decision very difficult. We decided that the banquet for two was the way to go, and we were so not disappointed. Everything was cooked to perfection and the wait staff were very friendly. I could not find fault at all.

Our meal consisted of 
  • Home made steamed dim sim
  • Pork won ton soup
  • San Choy Bau                                                                         
  • Peking Duck
  • Garlic Prawns
  • Sweet & Sour pork
  • Sliced Beef in Szechuan Chili sauce
  • Special Fried Rice
It was a meal to be fit a king, and although there was more food then either of us had imagined, we stayed until we could eat no more and were bursting at the seems.

We had a wonderful night chatting and reconnecting over a lovely bottle wine. It is something that we needed as a couple and something that we will continue to do for ourselves and our marriage. With our boys older now it's time that we make the effort to connect and continue to make time for ourselves. 
It's easy to loose yourselves in the fast lane of life, and we all need to stop and slow down every now and then to connect with the one we love.

  1. This is how life works around here. We are way better parents after we've managed a date night. Only wish we could do it more than once a week. :)
    Glad yours was a positive! x

  2. I agree, you've also got to have some 'alone time' and get that spark back - well for me anyhow, because after having 3 kids in 3.5 years I feel like I need to feel less pregnant again! Great post. Emily

  3. Absolutely, so important. We are looking forward to a night stating in a hotel in the city in a couple of weeks. Something we are hoping to continue at least once a year. Glad you enjoyed your night

  4. I sooo agree with you! I would love to be at the stage in my life that you are at right now. I would take up every opportunity to work more & more on my relationship. I've always looked at it - like your own personal investment that just grows & grows.. their is really nothing more important, apart from the children Xx Good for you guys : )
