Assuming you are in relationship with someone you’re in love with, I would take a guess and say, ‘it may come as no surprise to you the value of making time for love’.
I mean, how the heck did December get its jolly holiday bags packed and be on well and truly on its way to us already?
Time flies like a rocket. So how can we possibly fit in ‘time for love’?
In my crazy world, my husband often works eighteen hour days and for 95% of the year, he works seven days a week. When he isn’t on the road we often work together and when we hit the hay we are (to put it politely) stuffed.
So apart from the hot impromptu quickies, time for good quality, hot steaming, long sexual romps are far and few between. Not to mention having any time for quality conversation or activities that don’t involved my ‘all husband’ consuming transport company.
At particular times, when the moon and I align, I have a deep instinctual urge to take my husband by the scruff of his shirt and drag him to the bedroom and have my ravenous way with him.
I have realised that this is only ever a possibility attached to a whole string of variables such as, ‘is he going to be home before 12am?’ Is he in the same state as me? The same time zone? Do we have a house full of teenagers?’
Last Saturday at 2pm we finally got away from work and headed one and half hours north along the coast to spend less then twenty-four uninterrupted blissful hours together in a small seaside village.
It very nearly didn’t happen.
We almost put it in the too hard basket and cancelled. If we had cancelled, we would have worked until 5pm or later then come home, had dinner and crashed by 9pm, woke up and did the same old thing over again.
We made the effort. No matter how tired, we chose to make it happen. We delegated tasks and finally took off for a night.
