X is for Xylophone

Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge where for the month of April we post everyday except Sundays, corresponding to each letter of the alphabet. I’ve chosen to blog about keeping the romance alive in a relationship along with ideas for married couple dates. Each post will also have a romantic song for you to listen to whilst you read.

Okay I’ve totally failed in my efforts to have a romantic song by an artist that starts with the letter x, so I’ve resorted to the song Xanadu by Olivia Newton John (Australian of course).

Now you may well be wondering what a xylophone has to do with romance and dating, and it did take me a while to remember this. I was very short of ideas and was even considering doing x factor, as my beloved definitely has it.

We love days out together exploring and having fun with our best friend, which is each other. Occasionally we come across kids play areas that have instruments, including xylophones, made out of everyday objects so of course we play around with them (we’re just a couple of big kids).

It’s really good to have those days when we don’t take ourselves too seriously and just get in touch with our inner child. Sometime it can end slightly disastrously, like the time I was trying to complete a children’s obstacle course and ended up falling spectacularly off one of the obstacles.

Why don’t you pick a fun day out together as a special date day soon. I’m excited for an arts and crafts one that we have in about a month.

Fun fairs are another great way to have fun together – play on the arcade machines, play air hockey, and definitely get some fairy floss (cotton candy or candy floss) to share and get all sticky with, which is perfect for sugary kisses afterwards.

Today’s quote – I think this should be a motto for the world:

Pamela & Ken
