me and you {october}

Our October has been kind of boring,
that kind of boring where you never seem to get a second off,
but you feel like there's been nothing fun to show for it.

The Mr has been away quite a bit with work,
I've been trying my best to be a better housewife
and actually do more stuff around the house.
And so our days have been boring,
normal, quiet, simple.

And we actually really needed this change of pace,
for things to slow down just a touch,
so that we could get back to the simple things we love;
like sharing snacks and watching a film,
or taking to bed to watch Netflix in our jim jams.
Just spending our evenings together.

We reconnect in those moments.
We need those moments,
after busy days at work,
or crazy days with the children,
those moments are what keep us sane.

When we first got together we used to watch movies on Rich's computer all the time,
we'd snuggle on his bed, 
share a Vienetta (yes we'd eat half each, but we were young and our metabolisms were faster back then)
and watch all sort of random films his housemates had downloaded (not entirely legally) off of the web.
They were good times,
and its been nice to get a bit of that back,
even if I do tend to fall asleep a lot earlier these days.

This month one of my lovely cohosts went and got married,
which is super exciting and big cause for celebration,
so do stop by Fritha's blog to see how beautiful it all was.
And do go and check out our other cohosts too,
Kirsty at My Two Mums,
and Becky at Ar Blog;
I'm sure everyone will have something lovely to share.

And link your couply moments up below,
I can't wait to see them. 
And if you tweet me your links, I'll try my hardest to share as many posts as I can.

Oh and there are bonus points if you can identify what we're watching...!


  1. You definitely do need those kind of evenings, just to chill out and enjoy being in each other's company! x

  2. We've had a busy month too! I do enjoy just sitting and watching anything as long as we spend time together. Bet your enjoying your new computer and no I do not have a clue, I'm am so down with it!

  3. We used to stay up late watching movies too. Now we usually watch just 1 show before we pass out for the night, lol.

    Cute pic, and I love the kitty photo bomb!

  4. I crave these kind of evenings, especially now the weather is turning. I love snuggling up although we don't have a tv or computer in our bedroom, but we snuggle up on the sofa, put the phones and laptops away and just relax. And I bloody love vienetta, we still have it every time we go to my Grandmas for dinner! x

  5. You can't beat a good snuggle and a film, they are some of the best nights especially when you feel like you have been passing each other by due to busy days X

  6. Love your pic this month - sometimes those evenings sitting together and just relaxing in front of the TV are exactly what we need - time to slow down and just enjoy being in each other's company.

  7. Oh I know that feeling curling up in bed and just watching Netflix! It's pure bliss! Me and my girlfriend sit and watch Faking it & AHS religiously we watched the first 3 series in 2 weeks!! :') we all need our down time! Xx
    Me and Mell had our couples photo shoot not too long ago ( my blog post on it ) -

  8. I love snuggling up in bed, it is just simple things like that which are lovely. Nope I don't have a clue what you were watching!!

  9. I love this and have to say so jealous as I have always wanted a tv in my room and Mr P says no way. Fantastic that you both can curl up in bed and pjs and have that quality time together. Relaxing and enjoying those little moments are so very important. Love that your kitty-cat photo bombed in. hahaha Thanks for hosting. Will link up tomorrow my lovely.

  10. This photo reminds me so much of our evenings - I love having a TV in my room! :) I'm late this month, can you add my post to the linky please? :) xx
