I really should have called this post “the art of the surprise weekend away” because that is what it is about.
I know how hard you both work and how difficult it is to spend time together, let alone have a holiday. Hard work and neglect of each other can really damage your relationship and it’s one of the causes of some professional couples breaking up.
Relationships can get lost in the demands of dual careers and that is sad.
The time when you both have the same weekend free is probably rare so why not schedule it ahead of time? Book it out in your diaries and commit that weekend to yourselves.
Now that you know your dates, surprise your love by taking them away for the weekend. Can you imagine their face when you pick them up but don’t head home? Gradually the smile will spread across their face as they realise what is happening.
Wouldn’t that be a wonderful gift to your partner and to yourself?
I know you are busy so I can do the organising for you. All I need to know is where you’d like to go and what kind of weekend you would love to have. Do you like to laze around or do you prefer action? Do you like the beach or the hills? Do you prefer city or rural places?
I will find the perfect place and book it for you. I can arrange for champagne and flowers on arrival, or perhaps you’d enjoy chocolates. I can research local restaurants and book you a place for dinner. I will book you a hire car or, if you don’t want to drive, arrange a driver for you.
All you have to do is pack your bag (and one for your partner) and run away from the world for a magic couple of days.
Refresh your bodies and minds and rejuvenate your relationship. Weekends together are rare so make them memorable.

Running out of Time to Buy that Present?
I know a science professor who has commented that in the past, if her young son was invited to a birthday party, the present had to be bought from Safeway or 7eleven or it just didn't happen.
