5 Low-Key Romantic Gestures All Mums Would Love

Mum-of-three and blogger at ProperFudJill Jordon writes about how romance doesn't always have to be flowers and hot-air balloon rides!

When it comes to me and my husband of ten years you can forget hot air balloon rides with champagne. We’re eh…slightly more low key than that. Here is the official run down of the things that happened recently that qualify as romance between me and the fella I married.

  1. He bought me tickets for my birthday to go see one of my favourite bands from my teens: Suede. I was into them at a time when he was all about Motörhead yet this week when the gig rolled around he sat beside me probably not embarrassed at my lyric-recall powers.
  2. He made the school lunches on Thursday night. That’s a bit pathetic that I count that in the romance column of our marriage ledger. I had made them the other four nights but it’s a task I dislike so much that any reprieve is noted.
  3. Much as I love to watch Ireland play in the Six Nations, the enthusiasm doesn’t stretch to watching the Under 20’s team play on a Friday night. I suggested we watch “About Time” on Netflix instead, and he did not protest one jot. Of course, it helps that Domhnall Gleeson – who can do no wrong in our eyes – and Rachel McAdams (think he might fancy her a bit) star. I cried, unsurprisingly. It’s terribly sweet, terribly British and really quite romantic. Anyway, him indoors liked it.
  4. He suggested we get Indian for dinner. That was no big sacrifice on his part but it’s my absolute favourite. I would happily bathe in Saag anything.
  5. When I got up one morning this weekend, he was gathering swimming gear to bring the boy children to the pool. Lessons aren’t on this week, and he’s a member of a fancy place where the lads can go free but there’s no guest passes for wives. Oh no… So instead I got to go for a run and drink coffee in peace and eh, write this. Added bonus, that’s the children washed for the next week. Now that’s love!
