John and I are going out tonight, without any kids!! I don't think we have been on a date for about 8 years. When we lived in Leeds there was nobody I would leave the kids with (I didn't know Sarah Harrison then :-p) and as soon as we moved back Ted was diagnosed.
We are going to the cinema to watch 2012, and John has booked us the "posh" seats at the back (I use the term posh lightly, the cinema is in Basildon!!) and I may even let him hold my hand :o)
