Our date in A and E and Valentine's Listography

2. More quality time together at home.  A love film subscription. We have very different tastes in film, but we both love it.  We watched Remember Me this weekend and it made me realise we've been relying too much on Mr A's blockbuster action thriller purchases from Asda. Remember Me is likely to make you appreciate your loved one, although without giving away the plot, maybe not a film I would suggest for Valentine's Day.

Just when I thought life couldn't get any more complicated Mr A woke me up at 6am on Monday in agony due to what he 'gestured' to be a belt of pain around his chest.  I called 999, the paramedics were there in minutes. They fixed him up to a heart monitor. They pretty quickly concluded it wasn't heart related.  Mr A told me later he had already come to the same conclusion when he woke me up but couldn't explain he was in so much pain. 

They took him to the hospital, I followed on, after I had dropped the kids at a friends.  To cut a long story short, after lots of discussion and tests it turned out to be one of those wierd, one off things medics can't explain, or perhaps the beginnings of appendicitis...  But it gave us a day together, in peace, with no kids and no wifi. Which given the chaotic state our 2011 has taken, almost counts as a date. We were passing ships in January, he held the fort and worked while I spent as much time as possible with my mum.

And it made me have a big rethink about my Kate Takes 5's  listography and Notes' I Heart Me

For Valentines I would like:

1. More quality time together away from home.  A break in a spa hotel. The Menzies Hotel in Stratford Upon Avon which I languished in the hot tub in, for my best friend's hen do, would be fab:

Menzies Spa Hotel, Stratford Upon Avon

3. More quality time together on the town.  A Babysitter. Our lovely babysitter had a baby recently and oh how we've missed her.

4. More quality time together looking after ourselves.  A Wii Fit.  Due to lack of number 3, to facilitate getting out together to play some kind of real sport, dance or go for long walks. 

5. More time remembering quality times gone by...Someone to put all our pictures in albums.

Love you Mr A

What a fright, glad he is OK.

What a lovely list and so true. Our much-loved babysitter has just gone home to New Zealand and we are at a complete loss, and in desperate need of a night out together.

Oh poor you, but time together is time together, and thank goodness it was not serious. Great list - btw, I use agency for nights out. Have always found them to be brilliant, and they're even if you take your young ones away for a weekend, and want a night out, they can come to your hotel! (I am in no way affiliated btw, just they happen to have given us back some freedom, as family who live 1 street away are always too busy to help!).

That is a great list. Babysitters are so hard to find. Glad Mr A is ok. I'm following your blog now having just found it.

What a lovely down-to-earth list. I too could use more film and a great babysitter in my life (who couldn't?). What a frightening thing, glad Papa A is okay.

Manana mama - Yes it brought me down to earth a bit. Although Mr A has now seen this and thinks I am hinting...
Send any film recommendations this way!

Make sure you get your own love film account. I put my choices in only to go back and find my hubbie has changed there importance :-(.
