Step 3: Relax over a meal
We’ll then take our time over our meal. I think this is so important, particularly as we aren’t able to go out to a restaurant at the moment, and really relax over a meal making time for conversation. We always finish with a naughty dessert as I don’t think anyone has a sweeter tooth than me.
Step 4: Unwind together
I absolutely love board games and sitting by the fire in our nightwear is definitely one of the most relaxing things to do. After dinner we would start a game and get nice and cosy, probably with a hot chocolate and some cookies I will have made with Jamie that afternoon. (We do a lot of baking, especially since lockdown, so there is always something needing eating).
Step 5: Set-up a movie night
We both really enjoy watching movies so this would be where we would end up. We can often spend a long time choosing something to watch, so inevitably it will be a romantic comedy we will have seen before. We might treat ourselves (again) to some popcorn if we have any room. This is when we would get really comfortable with our dressing gowns on, probably also with a hot water bottle and some sleepy tea before heading up to bed.
