What Does Romance Mean to you?

… after years of Disney, fairy stories and Hollywood movies where the girls always get a ‘happy-ever-after’ I thought that romance meant there was a knight in shining armour, or Prince romanceCharming, with big romantic gestures ready to sweep a girl off her feet and ride off into the sunset of ‘happy-ever-afters’.

But you know what?

I don’t want sunbursts and marble halls – to quote Anne of Green Gables.

The most romantic thingĀ for me is the most precious commodity anybody owns … time!

Just spending time with that special someone is worth more than any amount of a flash extravagance.

And when you are spending time with someone – even if it’s just a few hours, you can almost make time stop, so it feels like for ever.

It’s the simple things that mean the most.

– Thoughtfulness.

– Kindness.

– Long kisses.

– Talking about anything and everything.

– Walks at sunset.

– Cuddling.

– Spooning.

– Holding hands so that you don’t know where your hand ends and theirs starts.

– Listening to music in the candlelight.

Romance doesn’t have to cost the earth.

Sometimes the simplest things have a way of making you feel like everything is … magic šŸ˜‰

Bath -v- Shower. Which do you prefer?

Much as the thought of a deep, hot, luxurious bubble bath, dimmed lights, soft musicĀ and lighted scented candles is appealing in the relaxation stakes.bubblebath

In reality, I would probably last less than 5 minutes beforeĀ I got bored.

I can never seem to relax in a bath. I’ve always found them very uncomfortable, my neck always starts to ache, and I end up feeling more tense.

I am not one of these people who could lie in them for hours reading the latest chic-lit whilst slowly turning into a prune!

I also never feel clean after a bath and have to have a shower afterwards!

So, for me, I have to say I’m a shower girl.

I feel more relaxed being able to stand underneath running water – almost as if I can feel the stresses and strains of the day running down the plug-hole too – and I find it a perfect place to think!

And the more powerful the shower the better šŸ˜‰

Which do you prefer?
