How about cooking a nice romantic meal once the little babe is in bed and followed by candles and a nice massage

well if you're skint then how about making a special album of all the pics n memorabilia (tickets n stuff from dates) of the time together then a nice candlelight dinner - u could always treat yourself and him to some stuff from the la senza sale hee hee!!! otherwise if you can afford around 40-50 quid then check out buy a gift website for some really cool treats and ideas!Have fun!


Sorry can't help with ideas but....


.......for Saturday!

take a look here - and you are giving him the gift of 'time'


Get him beer and a curry and Die Hard box set, it will be the best anniversary ever.....trust me

My husband's idea of heavan (apart from the obvious of course) would be a picnic somewhere, either with or without the children. Nice and cheap, pack up your picnic basket with all his favourite things, try and pick some nice weather (which may prove to be the most difficult part of all this) but this week's not looking too bad, and then think of somewhere he really likes, does he have a favourite local country park for example, or go the coast. Whip out the picnic blanket and just relax if it's just the two of you, or take small games and have a really family bonding day if you've got your little one with you.

We've just joined the National Trust (I'd like to point out that we are quite a trendy family and always laughed at this but found you got £20 off through quidco so decided to go for it and in 2 months have made our money back already so also a good idea for the whole family if you want to splash out a bit more, take a look at the places near you you could visit regularly) and take a picnic everytime we visit somewhere and my husband said it's a lovely thing to do as you get to relax and chat as a family!!
