Us time

Day 27 of #65daysofsummer

It’s been a hectic few months for us so it was wonderful to be able to get a night away together, just the two of us.

John had bought me a voucher for the Galgorm resort and spa in Ballymena for my birthday earlier in the year and his parents kindly looked after the children so we could get away to enjoy it.

The weather was glorious, which made for a beautiful afternoon in the thermal village. After much relaxation we had a delicious meal, a wander round the grounds and a nightcap in the River Room. Having some time completely on our own happens very rarely and we feel rested and replenished as a result. There’s going to be quite a bit of change ahead for our family so this couldn’t have come at a better time.

We need to think about how we make more time for this sort of thing, for sure. Nights away at lovely locations don’t happen often but alone time and space to relax can be achieved much more simply and economically. It’s about making time for it. A walk together, a coffee or a trip to the cinema are all ways we could build it in to our routine. What could you do to ensure you get quality ‘us’ or ‘me’ time?
