You're sick - I wouldn't be driving around when I'm feeling like cr*p and he changed his plans last minute.
Tell him to catch a taxi home or walk... or get a lift with someone else. Tell him you're sick, and you're not interested in waiting up for him until you can take some medicine... so give the kids pizza or something (order it for delivery - pay with a credit card if you've got no cash), or some leftovers or even just toast... stick them on the couch and pop on a DVD, slack off nearby, and just wait until he makes his way home.

Something similar happened to me 2 years ago. Since then we have made a pact that I dont pick him up from any Xmas breakup. Harsh I know but it's not worth the ensuing arguments.

Take your medicine, go rest and get him to catch a cab.
If he was ready at the time you first planned you would have picked him up - he changed the plans - he can deal with it.
If you had gone with him - got a baby sitter and enjoyed yourself...you'd both probably be cabbin' it home.
If you weren't unwell and dealing with kids I wouldn't be bothered by it though.

I don't think you're over-reacting at all. Not one bit.
You're ill, he knows that. On top of having to study, you have 3 small kids to look after. On top of that you've made dinner and have probably done housework, right? I've said it before and I'll say it again...he needs to lift his game .
Hope you feel better soon, especially in time for Christmas.

Thanks lovelies. I have come to the conclusion it wouldnt be a big deal if I wasn't sick so not going to harp on about it. Although I am still going to milk this for all it's worth. He is home now and I made him wash bottles and clean out the kitty litter tray while I lay on the couch siping my hot lemon and honey. Off to have a foot rub and snooze. Thanks for listening to my sickness induced whinge xoxo
Yep..... It's an iPhone

He's allowed to have fun but at least let her know what's happening so she can plan her night . It's not just her it's kids too.
