Date ideas

In the week or so that my boyfriend has been back in town I've been trying to come up with inventive dates so we enjoy our time together. I've been working a lot these days.

Last Tuesday we rode our bikes into town and met at a cocktail lounge: gin martini for he; raspberry mojito for she. Next stop was a most delicious Chinese feast where we chatted for hours before riding home in a warm Summer night.

On Wednesday after a sleep in we went to Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens for a picnic: homemade filled baguettes with roma tomatoes, cheddar and homegrown basil; delicious goats cheese with fresh tossed salad; a crunchy apple apiece and two bottles of water. We ended up overstaying our welcome and being driven to the exit by a groundskeeper! Spent the rest of the afternoon in my local library.

Friday night we took a walk in my neighbourhood (and met the friendliest cat!) before dipping our feet and hands in the pool, looking at the stars and talking, talking, talking.

Saturday we shared the day together initially in the air-conditioned comfort of my own home before braving the heat to go to a festival.

Sunday we snacked on goats cheese and crackers, red wine and salt and vinegar chips under a shining moon while we watched "Man on a Wire" at the Moonlight Cinema.

What are your favourite date destinations? I'm seriously failing for V-day.....
