One unforseen bonus of moving closer to the in-laws is that C's grandparents have offered to collect C from nursery on a Tuesday and have him overnight so they can look after him on a Weds without us having to drop him off in the morning. It's super nice and means T and I have a whole evening to ourselves.
Not only that but with my office move and T's new job, we both work in central London, so can have Tuesday night date nights in town! Something that hasn't happened since 2005 when I was a bookseller on Oxford St and T was an office admin near Bedford Sq.
I'm looking to make the most of this free time and to do something nice at least once a month. T has already won cinema tickets to a private screening in Leicester Square, so date night is getting off to a good start!
