Re-connection

Sion and myself have come away for a few days to a little country hotel near Nuneaton. It's come at a perfect time for us. We've fallen in a pattern recently of working, going to the gym and sitting in front of the TV without talking for the rest of the evening. This hasn't caused us any problems but we needed to stop it before this turned into the norm for us.

On the drive up we talked about our career plans, our hopes for the house, plans to start trying for a baby again and completing numerous Facebook quizzes to find out what Greek god/ess we were (Zeus for him, Hera for me), what medieval job we would have (blacksmith for him/furniture maker for me) and what place we should live in (French Polynesia for him, Kenya for me) and just giggling about silly stuff.

We enjoyed ourselves at Cadbury World (post and photos to follow) and we sat in the hotel bar eating our chicken and chips before snuggling in bed with a bottle of wine and Masterchef on.

Today we are going to head into Birmingham to shop and eat sushi, all the while those invisible strings that tie us together will be tightening and strengthening.

  1. I don't remember the last time husband and I hugged OMG I am in apanic mode now and I need to re-connect as well. The things is he is working 2 jobs and when he arrive I am already knackered to have a conversation let alone kiss and hug him. I should work harder don't I?

    1. I think it's just about making the most of the time you are both in the same room and relatively awake...most jobs can wait 5 minutes. We've agreed that a quick catch up is more important to us that most other things now.

  3. I guess this is why people have invented 'date nights' - we are exactly the same - either he's on late shifts or we're in the same room together but doing solitary activities. Maybe relationships improve when your kids grow up and you get to re-connect the whole time! #WotW
