Two weeks ago today I was in Edinburgh having got married the previous day! That’s just insane!! We enjoyed those two days without any children as it was blissfully quiet and yet we missed them terribly. Since then we have returned to normality with a massive crash which is only to be expected. I have started my new career which is probably going to mean less time than I’d like with the family but sacrifices have to be made by everybody right…!
Well we have been discussing the opposite. The last few years of our lives have been all about sacrifice, it’s been a tough period for us financially which has definitely put other strains on the family but we’ve managed to pull through ok. Now we have decided that we need a little time to ourselves as well as time together away from the kids. We of course adore them and love spending time with them but other than our honeymoon I can’t remember the last time we went for a meal together just the two of us. we have vowed to start having date nights (that’s what grandparents are for right) even if it’s only once a month.
As for the time to ourselves thing I have started running again, something I enjoy and will help shed a few pounds. Yesterday was my 3rd run since I stopped over a year ago and I was well impressed to be running week 4 of the running program i use and keeping a 10 minute mile pace consistently over the running sections of the splits. I’ve started slow and am building up but if I carry on as I started I should be less flabby and less short of breath fairly soon.
