It often seems the "done thing" amongst women to complain about their menfolk. It's normal to roll the eyes when a man is mentioned, or to say "Men!" with an attitude of amused scorn. But, if I'm being honest, I have nothing to complain about.

This post is a tribute to my wonderful husband Aidan. He works full-time, he does loads of housework, he helps as much as he can with the baby, he pampers me with backrubs and cups of tea. He is ever-supportive, loving, and is simply always there for me and, now, for Elspeth. He wants nothing but the best for all of us. He might be the big tough man when he has to be, but he's got a tender streak that comes through for his womenfolk.

So to my husband I say: I love you, and thank you.

He's unbelievably fabulous isn't he? I remember when we first met I was amazed at how smart he was.

It didn't take long to figure out that he is a ridiculously well rounded human and funny as hell to boot.

You were brilliant to snag him but you already know that don'tcha?

It's exciting watching the next stage of "your story" develop..thanks for sharing.

Aw! I agree, I dislike the culture of complaint about the menfolk. It perpetuates the "battle of the sexes" nonsense.

Congrats on little Elspeth's arrival, you're a lovely little family.
