We're Engaged!

I've been having a lovely week off work and it all started with a very romantic proposal! I'm over the moon, head over heels giddy that I started the week with a lovely boyfriend and by Thursday evening went off to dream land with my fiance!

We got up on the first day of our hols and as I was hopping into the shower he came through to say he was nipping to the local shops to get a drink. After half an hour I got a text message to say 'there's no cash in any of the atms so I've gone into town be back soon.' Nearly two hours passed, this was really out of character, so I texted back to say 'is this a joke? all this time for a can of pop?' more messages followe and he was soon back in the house where I quizzed the poor man for about ten minutes about his whereabouts!

We had a lovely day and then headed out down by the sea at Tynemouth for fish and chips where we got blown about like mad, then headed for home.

Then, at about 9:30pm on our favourite walk with our Tobydog we sat down on the little grassy knoll where we've so frequently watched the sun go down, and before I knew what was happening he was down on one knee and reaching into his pocket for that little box!

The ring is a beautiful yellow gold vintage solitaire which I adore and cannot stop looking at! We took a few days for it to sink in and now that I know it isn't a dream and we've told our parents, family and friends we have a little party to plan, and much more to plan too!

Lots more holiday photos to follow, including our trip to The Fat Quarters and Blackhall Mill, for now I'm back to floating on my cloud!

Oh, the peacock was spotted on our favourite walk the day after the big proposal, an odd sight in a built up area, I think this is a sign of good luck!
