Date Night

Tonight is a very exciting and much needed occasion, it’s Date Night.

The last time Kirsty and I went on a Date Night was when Monkey was about 4 months old. We had a lovely couple of hours eating some dinner and talking (about M lol) and then rushed back because we hadn’t left him before and we were very anxious.

Tonight however is a different story. We’re going out for a cheeky Nandos, then going to watch a film at the cinema. Yes, you heard us correctly, we’re actually going to the cinema! We’re so excited, we haven’t seem a film at the flicks since before M was born. Kirsty got to choose the film this time. We are off to see World War Z. She is a big zombie film fan, plus it does look good.

We’ve been out for meals together and we’ve never had an issue taking M out with us to places, he’s such a well behaved boy, we really can’t complain. However, it’s going to be lovely to be adults for a night. We spent a lovely few days the other weekend at Britmums Live (you can read about our weekend here) together, but it was such a busy time, we hardly spoke to each other lol.

Date Night -

We think its so important to find the time to reconnect as a couple and we’re hopefully going to make this a regular thing.

Bring on the popcorn!

Just a quick question before I end this – Popcorn – Salty or Sweet? Leave us a comment below.


  • Have a lovely night ladies! I’m jealous, I love Nandos.
    Sweet and salty. I’m so indecisive! xx

  • Have an awesome night!

  • Hope you both have a fantastic time and definitely salty popcorn

  • Hannah

    Both! I always have a mixture…

  • Have a lovely time ladies, I am so desperate for a date night with mr e, we literally haven’t had one for months and months, and have only had about 3 in the whole time mads has been here.
    Definitely salty x

  • Have a wonderful time girls. Oh and popcorn should always be sweet! x

  • Salty with a big bag of peanut m&ms! you are so right date nights are really important!

  • Salty and sweet mixed together! I love date nights. Cinema trips are very rare and therefore extra-special once you have a little one! Enjoy 🙂

  • We went to the cinema a few days before Elma arrived and it’s amazing how decadent you can feel for such a simple trip out – I hope you enjoyed the film! Oh and sweet and salty mixed is the way to go

  • Got to be sweet! Hope you had a lovely night x

  • Good for you for taking this time! Our son is 8 and we still struggle w/ date nights.

    BTW…I’m a sweet and salty girl so something like Kettle corn or a choc covered pretzels usually works 🙂

  • Hope you had a great night. I’ve been so, so rubbish at making adult time so hats off to you two for doing it:I think you’re right it is important. Let’s hope that was the first of many….and sweet !

  • I like both!! Salty makes me spend more money on drinks though, which in turn makes me need to wee in the middle of the film lol! Have fun xx

  • Date night!!! I thought it was an urban legend! 😉 Me, salty, husband sweet. I think he does it so I can’t steal his popcorn.

  • I actually like the one that is salty and sweet – Pret a Manger stocks it and it is delish! x
