We Went Out!

The husband and I don’t have much time together, just the two of us, out and about. We do enjoy lounging about together most evenings at home, so we do have that, but to actually go out, into the world, without children? Well, that’s rare. I can literally count on one hand the amount of times we’ve done it since Boo was born, a little over 4 years ago. And of those occasions, only one has been of a night!

So, to the say that we were looking forward to going out on Friday, is something of an understatement. Where were we going? To see Billy Joel at the NEC, and as we’re both big fans, the excitement was palpable! We’d booked tickets back in May, as of course they sold out within a few minutes of going on sale.

Now, regular readers will know that Boo had a sick bug last week. Horrible at any time, but with our only night out this year looming, and a good one at that!, we were really nervous. The past week, we’ve double-guessed and worried over every slightly queasy moment we’ve had, any ache or pain, and every time Little Man’s been a bit sick, it’s been all out panic (he sicks up little bits pretty regularly, which isn’t helpful!). But we made it, we made it through the bug!

Here we are – out in the world, together, and it’s night time!

The Husband and I

We had a great night – a magic moment for us.

And, for anyone doubting Billy’s song-writing genius, here you are.. 😉

  1. Glad to hear Boo was feeling better so you could get out and enjoy your night out. It’s important to get time together as a couple and it looks like you had a great time.

  2. So pleased you made it out and had such a fab night 🙂 If it makes you feel any better your words could have been my own! Although hubby & I have had a fair few days out together, I think we’ve only managed one (perhaps two?) ‘date night’ in 4½ years #MagicMoments

  3. Oooh, I remember you saying you were going. How exciting. I have a concert of his from the 80s when he played at wembley Arena on VHS and yes, I still have a player and love to watch it still. He’s just soooooooooooo good. I’m horribly envious 😉 XX

  4. Woo hoo!!!!! You must have been beside yourselves with excitement especially after Boo was feeling better. How awesome to see Billy Joel too, He must have been absolutely brilliant. So glad you had a great evening, looks like you were having fun. Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory

  5. Yay, glad you both had a brilliant time. It’s something that seems to be so hard to organise and follow through sometimes and before you know it, months have passed by and you’ve had no quality time on your own.

  6. Oh yes this is magic! J and I had a breakfast date while we were on our family holiday and we really enjoyed being a couple again rather than just mum and dad. We are trying to do it regularly but it is hard and time passes so quickly.
