free ‘sweet’ hugs asked me what's the most romantic thing someone did for me.

This morning, E stood from where she was eating her breakfast before heading for the school bus. I was making coffee, with my back to her and suddenly felt her snuggle in against my hip, squeeze me tight and say "I love you, Daddy."

It doesn't get much more romantic than that. And I'll take such small and welcome giving of love and affection over the long-ago grand gesture any day.

And as for the giving of something material as a romantic gesture, I'll leave it up to Messrs Lennon & McCartney:

"I don't care too much for money

Money can't buy me love"

I love you too, sweetheart.

[Lennon & McCartney didn't say that, I did]
