Take time to date

Take Some Time To Date Before You Make The Big Step

When swept away int he throws of wedding planning it is easy to forget to take time to just be with each other. During engagement A & I set aside whole weekends (we didnt see each other very often) when we would’t talk about the wedding or planning at all – it was great, and necessary to keep sane!

Holding HandsHere are a few ideas:
– Pack a picnic basket and head to the park / riverbank / anywhere… Surprise your partner with their favourite foods from the local farmers market…and a mini bottle of champers – obviously!
– All this week in London there are loads of events taking place to encourage you to slow down (unless you are a marathon runner – go Tegwen!) and take time out. Check out the Slow Down London events planned… 24th April – 4th May
– Save cash – try some of the free things that are on offer in town – Time Out has loads a pretty definative list including comedy clubs, bars, art and music…

If lavender be the scent of love…

Lavender Fields Of Love

So, incase you have stumbled across this site and happen not to be engaged to be married, you may be interested in this eco-speed-dating event happening next Saturday in a lavender field near you…

Following the success of BTCV in York, Carshalton Lavender, the Observer Ethical Award-winning community group based in the London Borough of Sutton, is introducing eco-dating, a new form of match-making for environmentally-conscious singles aged 30-50, to London on Saturday 18th April.

Eco-dating takes the speed dating idea and aims do a little for the environment at the same time – helping to prepare Carshalton Lavender’s field for this year’s annual lavender harvest. Whilst going about the tasks at hand you will be paired with a different partner every 10 minutes, and the small sum of £5 includes all the hot drinks and cake you could need…
