On Thursday we started our time out, a time to be us again, a time to give our full attention to each other.
As all parents will know that is a hard thing to do when the kids are running around and once they're in bed all you want to do is sleep. You do get stuck in a routine. So it was lovely to break away from the norm for a while.
We started our time by visiting a very special place. We returned to the hotel where we were married 3 years ago for meal. As soon as we walked in I felt so emotional as all of the memories came flooding back. We started remembering things about the day that we had forgotten and it was lovely to spend some time reminiscing about our perfect day. As we walked through to find a table we bumped into our Master of Ceremonies, Rob, I was amazed when he recognised us! We chatted and told him about the twins. He said that he had the perfect table for us, and it was perfect! We were sat in the room where we had our wedding ceremony. We enjoyed a delicious meal and have promised ourselves a visit for our next wedding anniversary.

After our meal we made our way into York to our hotel before going to see the brilliant Paul Hollywood! You can read all about the great show here.

On Friday we spent the day shopping in York and visited the Minster. It truly is a magnificent building.

We returned home on the Saturday. In comparison to the previous days the weekend was pretty uneventful. We just spent time together with the children and got back into our regular routines.
York did the hubby and I the world of good and we are already planning when we can do it again. Admittedly it probably won't be until next year, but we're enjoying planning.
