We have some 'couple' time, can't think of a thing to do!

we have had a rotten stressful couple of weeks, you would not believe it (not relationship stress, building work stress) So our lovely friend has offered to take our 3yo DD for a sleepover tomorrow, starting at midday or so and has said there is no rush to get her on sunday, so we can have a lie in.

So, tomorrow evening, we are going to a close friend's parents silver wedding anniversary, but just going to pop in for an hour. We are planning on being exceptionally boring and coming home and watching a movie and then going to bed early. While that sounds dull, DD is in our bedroom with us due to building work being done, and struggles to settle so the evening is taken up settling her, then settling again, and nights are disturbed by her talking in her sleep, waking up because her covers have come off etc and she often ends up in with us, so we get kicked in the head etc.

Sunday morning we are sleeping in. Never get to do this together these days. We might get the paper delivered.

So the evening is pretty much sorted. But I would like us to do something in the day without DD as that is also rare for us. We cannot do anything in the house as builders are in again tomorrow. So needs to be ourdoorsy.

Any suggestions, I have a mind blank. Can't involve spending too much money as we are skint this month, but we might go have lunch somewhere without having to wipe food off us or chase DD around the place! Something else to fill in our day would be good.

Oh bowling - that could be fun! Cinema, hmm. I am not great at sitting down for long periods of time, and also, we are watching a movie tomorrow night. So perhaps a bit overkill there. Unless we make out in the back row!!!

What about going somewhere with rowing boats?
Or going somewhere on the spur of the moment you have never been to and just have lunch there?

We've got tonight to ourselves and dp suggested going for a walk to the local pub and getting a chinese on the way home, however I am shattered and just want to have a bath and get into bed with a take away. I'm just about to pour us drinks and go and get in my hot bubble bath, if he's lucky I might even shave my legs!
