Simple September: Lunch at La Ristrettos

Recently, I met the hubby for lunch near his workplace, without the kids. Going out without the kids is rare, and so are couple dates. These days, our conversations usually take place during dinner (while we try to feed both kids and ourselves at the same time), or after the kids are asleep (by which both of us are usually exhausted after finishing the remaining household chores). So this lunch meeting, although pretty short (he had to go back to work, and I was rushing back for Lil J's nap), was quite a treat.

We had a nice meal at La Ristrettos, a cafe nestled on the 8th floor of Novena Medical Center. The coffee was good, and their breakfast menu was pretty decent. The pasta was disappointing though. (You can read a review of the place by another mum here.) 

It was really nice, being able to munch our lunches, while it dripped and drizzled outside. We chatted, without having to worry about wiping dirty mouths or making sure someone didn't spill his soup. I guess these dates are going to be even rarer when #3 arrives, but I think right now we'll just enjoy whatever time we have together, be it couple time, or with the kids!
