For this very special Valentines Day we Hartleys reunite in Dubai – at 6am in fact when EK 413 gets into town on time. Erroll is waiting for us and as is our tradition, Kingsley runs out to the arrivals lounge and into his daddy’s arms while I wait for our luggage. I receive the best gift for this day of love: a kiss on the lips from my hero and a loud “Happy VALENTIMES day MUMMA!’ from the little man after Erroll whispered in his ear.
Nothing better than this happy scene, except getting home to our cute apartment, unpacking, enjoying our usual Arabic fare (chapati and laban) then hitting the sack, spooning, all three of us as the sun comes up.
