He's been away the past 2 nights. MC was ill Monday and Tuesday (yes, 4 days back in school and she's ill already!) and then TC decided to suddenly become intolerant to strawberries (I think) last night and spent an hour early on chundering his guts up.
Anyway, this morning I awoke to this email on my phone. I'm posting it so the kids and I have a record of just how incredible their Daddy is (and what a softie!).

Hi only me.
For some reason I'm wide awake. Mind has gone into overdrive.
I'm also craving food, had a toby carvery for dinner as it's next door and I'm still hungry now.
But while I'm awake I just wanted to tell you how much I love you and how much you mean to me.
I know life sort of takes over and with work and then the kids demanding time it's hard to make time to tell you this but you along with TC and MC are everything to me.If you read all of that you may need a sick bucket *passes a virtual one*
We would be lost without you, all the stuff you do for us, cooking, cleaning, shopping, washing etc. I know it doesn't do itself and I would hate for you to think I take it for granted. You also do an amazing job of bringing up the kids and the reason MC is so advanced is all down to you, I still find it hard to believe she is only 3 and I know TC will be the same.
You won't believe me but you look great and I find you even more attractive than when we first met given all we've been through together.
I am so lucky to have found you and really am looking forward to Disney again. It still hasn't sunk in yet that we are going again so soon but I can't wait.
We also need to book Upstairs at the Grill as a steak warmup prior to going.
Let's book that before the end of the month as I do miss quality time with you. I really enjoyed our trip to Liverpool together and perhaps when TC is a little older maybe we can go away for a night while the kids stay with your Mum and Dad.
I'd like us to go out at least once a month if not more, we haven't done The Stables and I'm not bothered about drinking so we can drive but just getting some time together would be nice.
Anyway hopefully TC is ok now and you are fast asleep.
I miss you all loads but should be home mid afternoon all being well tomorrow.
Love you always, see you tomorrow and in my dreams xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
So, I guess posting this also answers the question from my last post. We are off to Florida again! It actually took almost a week of discussions but we know we've made the right decision. It's a rather indulgent thing to do and I do feel guilty that we are going again given so many people go as a once in a lifetime trip but life is definitely too short to scrimp and save and sweat the everyday life. It's for living!
Can't wait until he's home later. This was an amazing email to wake up to. He's such a great husband and Daddy.
Well, either that or he just wants to get in my knickers tonight! ;-)
