Project 52 - The first date

Our date was on Friday night. It was supposed to happened between 9.30 - 10.30pm but due to the fact that our kids were still not settled, we started about half an hour late.

This month is Tim's turn to come up with the dates. Friday night we had to write a list of the things we loved/liked about each other and then talk about it. It was good. Writing down things like that seemed to come easy to Tim but for me, I was really struggling. I think Tim was worrying that I didn't have a long enough list. I just found that after such a long day being Mum, it was hard to even stay awake. (I get little sleep at the best of times and unfortunately it catches up with me.)
It was fantastic to sit and spend some time just remembering why we love each. And talking and being silly together.
We ate Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate with Popping Candy inside, which was very funny to us, and drank Pepsi and just had fun.
The photo at the top is actually one of us from 1999 when we had just started going out. It was taken in a photo booth at a train station and it is one of my favourites.
Plans for next date... Not sure what Tim is planning yet. My part of it is to make a photo booth set up so we can take our photo together. I want it to be something we do each date. I hope we will get a bit more organised for our next date. But hey, give us a break. This was our first date.
I am looking forward to getting some more ideas from all the other people who are signing up to do Project 52 as well.
