I’ve realised that all too often we take spending time alone with our partner for granted.
Last night Daniel and I went out for dinner and a movie alone for the first time in months and it was fantastic. For a non-married couple we spend a lot of time together anyway, but it’s different when you’re alone together.
He spends most nights at my house on the futon and we often game together (one on the PC, one on the PS3) but you can’t really beat sitting across from each other at a table and just chatting.
We spoke about work and all the changes are that happening for both of us and we laughed and joked. We didn’t have to constantly be touching and kissing and slobbering on each other. That’s not a relationship.
A relationship is made of loving each other enough to care what you’re talking about. A relationship is me being really interested about what’s happening at work, even though it has nothing to do with me. A relationship is being able to sit quietly and not feel awkward. It’s obviously many more things too, but it’s important to have someone that you can talk to about all of your interests, worries, hurts and happies.
I had that last night. And I’ve had that for the last 5 years. I’m one lucky girl, I know.
Enough of the soppy!
Okay, no more soppy stuff. On a different note, the movie Daniel and I ended up watching (at 22:50 last night) was Johnny English: Reborn. Good grief, it’s hilarious! The lols were brought.
It’s a fairly long movie and we left the theatre (having been the only 2 watching that particular movie) at 00:45. Our movie was also that last one to come out. The poor staff had to wait around until nearly 1am just for the two of us… Awkward.
I have 2 videos of the day for you.
First off, Agnes (from Despicable Me) singing The Unicorn Song
And then Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO because it’s such a fun weekend song. Love it!
