With the children out of the way from 9am till 3pm, you suddenly have bonus time to spend with your partner. So take time off work and spend it together.

You can make these school-hours count, by turning your house into a romantic home-from-home. Here’s what to do…
As soon as the kids leave for school, arrange a romantic breakfast to eat in bed. Croissants, fruit, buck’s fizz, fresh coffee… Place a flower in a vase on the tray and head back to bed wearing your nicest nightwear.
Then spend all day in bed. I’m serious!
Make sure everything else is done (ie, there is food for dinner and the house is relatively clean), then camp out in the bedroom all day, or until you have to do the afternoon school run.
No TV allowed, just read to each other, listen to music, chat, sleep, give each other massages… It’s a great booster to flagging libidos.
