to expect DH to stay in touch when he's away with DS?

... only the reason I'm lurking around here tonight (apart from the glittering conversation) is that I'm waiting for DH to log onto Gmail chat because he hasn't called or emailed in 2 days and I'm missing him and DS like crazy.
I know they're on holiday and that its not easy to get away from the MOTHERINLAWFROMHELL but I just want to know they're ok.
For the record I don't suspect him of being up to no good and its not a divorce offence but I feel a bit forgotten.
I'm being selfish and whiny right? tell me. any conversations better than sitting here alone!

well, I'd be extremely happy not to hear from my ds and dh for a couple of days (not more than that, to be fair) but if he's married to you he should know that you like more contact.
try to enjoy it though... [wistful contemplation of the idea of being able to head off to the movies or similar on my own, eat pasta out of the saucepan in front of ancient Friends episode etc)

I really thought I'd love being on my own, but hated being alone overnight when I forgot to renew my passport once and family jetted off to France without me (sob!). I joined them two nights later, but I was bereft, and really suprised at myself! Love being alone all day though. Really love it.

yeah the nights are a killer.
as I keep saying (sorry I feel like my MIL on this "ooooh I'm in the middle east you know" aw shuddup) and that means cinema and easy wandering around is out. However, with great and self-sacrificing generosity DH left me to pack up nthe house pre our move next week.
Its the nights that kill me. I have to come downstairs with the Pif Paf at the ready at least 5 times a night because of strange noises and its always the aircon. I move into a hotel on Tues night and am anticipating 7 hours sleep..... bliss
He called at 1am -10pm hs time. I got such a fright I fell down the stairs while clutching the PifPaf (see above) and hazed a blameless socket.
