You should remember what I'm like, I seem to recall that half our arguments were about me paying for everything (even if I couldn't afford it then), rather than go over that all over again and make me pay for everything (you know I'm capable) I'll pick up mine and DC's tab and you pick up your costs. I don't like to spoil DC so please don't go overboard on any presents for her, I know she will like you for your wonderful self but don't want any doubt in her mind. She's at the age where she now counts the presents she gets and if she gets less at the next birthday/event she gets upset on the basis that as she is a year older she should have an extra present, it'll pass I'm sure, its kind of cute but not always in a good way!
We can go dutch when we go out, but I would like to treat you to dinner on our last night, I've already booked the restaurant so I hope you like it, slightly more upmarket than our last burger meal. I've saved for the last year for our summer holidays so we're ok financially and I know that you might have a shock when you come over here and see the prices at the moment. Petrol will give you a fit, its $2.15 a litre now!
I've spoken to DC and told her all (well not all) about you, I've said that you were an old girlfriend (this confused her slightly as she has this cute face where she gets concerned and puzzled at the same time, I think she thought you were her grandmothers age!), and they we used to be together in America. I've told her that you will be coming back to England with us as you are going to university here, but at the moment nothing more. Oh god, I hope our magic is still there but having a child means I am probably less carefree than I used to be, I have to put her first so need to be a little cautious before we meet, hold you in my arms and kiss you, no doubt I'll be completely lost at that point.
Itinary sounds great, I thought we would have a pool day as well one day, DC loves swimming and I might be able to get a bit of a tan to show I've been abroad this summer to my colleagues, otherwise they won't be jealous enough. Though I know the guys will be when I first go out with you here. (getting ahead of myself again, I am excited as your words make you appear to be, just excuse my caution at times as an overprotective father). I think these last few days have been some of the most exciting of my life and the most frustrating, my love grows stronger day by day and I ache for want of seeing you again.
