So, I have news.
On Saturday (yup, sorry, couldn't get on the blog before now!) the man of my dreams, love of my life, my soul mate, mo anam cara....
And he did it all proper like, on bended knee.
The deets - we were out for a meal in the pub two doors away from us, with his parents as it was Mater's birthday. I disappear off to the little girl's room, and when I returned he popped up out of his chair and said
"As you're on your feet, and I have the people I love around me, would you do me the honour of becoming my wife".
Mater cried. I cried. He cried. Lil Miss B cried.
Oh..... I also said yes....
We have set the date, always assuming the registry office is available, as the 21st June 2013, with a big knees up on the 22nd. No doubt it will include a visit to Stonehenge on the Solstice, and quite possibly a handfasting too. Watch this space for more info at a later date!
