I have to tell you about last nights date night. I am so incredibly lucky, that my tiny little treasure is having my desired “Gina-Ford-Routine” – just fabulous! Now I can do plans again which means for our poor babysitter that she had to watch out for three kids at a time. Luckily her name is also Gina and the kids love her, and so does she like the kids – I guess 🙂 My little treasure is drinking formula at night that way I am free and even better, it makes her go through the night much longer than with my breast-milk.
Since the FilmfestHamburg is still ongoing I reserved us tickets for a movie about Greenland with my dear hubby. So happy, that I have the freedom to plan our whole social and couple life! Don´t know if he would ever leave the house without me organising everything from the back office! You probably know that one, right?
What I really need to add: FORCE yourself to do regular date-nights with your partner. It is sooooo important, feels soooo good and is really refreshing for your relationship – I promise! Even though we felt really tired, especially my lovely husband, I convinced him about the necessity of that regular night out with just the two of us.
So off we went.
BIKERIDE – A bit odd to mention that, but do you know, that the best thing about yesterday night was actually riding my bike again? It feels like freedom not being attached to a newborn all the time – I felt myself again, it was unbelievable, just time for the two of us! But my fitness has to be improved for sure, I got exhausted after the first corner. Time to start the Tracy Anderson work out DVD that a dear friend gave me after giving birth!
FILMFEST HAMBURG – not like Cannes or Locarno but it certainly shows some movies that are worth watching. We went to my favourite cinema ABATON and saw “Le Voyage Au Groenland” (The Journey to Greenland) by Sébastien Betbeder. I can only say: Urbanites meet Inuits – two Parisians visiting a 444-inhabitants town in northern Greenland – such a refreshing and funny culture-clash-comedy! Loved it!
DINNER FOR TWO – after the movies I was expecting some note from Gina on my phone, but everything was quiet. So we rushed to have some late dinner just the two of us. How I missed those date-nights! Now we start again every wednesday! I can so much recommend this to anyone – we always had a regular babysitter-night during the week – even if you just want to go for a walk and a drink. We headed to Otto´s Burger – to me the BEST BURGER IN TOWN!
TREASURETTE-FAVE: I can so much recommend the Honey B-Burger with coleslaw on the side – mmmmhhh so yummy! Try it!
Happy to hear from you and to read your comments and ideas. I would love to hear from your visit at Otto’s Burger. I just love it!
