I feell all grown up now……..

Might have something to do with the fact that I proposed to my girlfriend last night, and WE'RE GETTING MARRIED.

Not that I planned it that way....

I planned to take her to the beach today, get down on one knee and ask her to marry me, but fate had a much better idea.

First of all, I had to buy the ring. I've been doing research on rings for almost 3 weeks now, and I had all but made my mind up. Unfortunately, no one stocked rings in her size (more on that later), so I went into a jewellry store, found a ring I liked.....and picked it up. It was a size too small, but the deal was that I should go ahead and use it to propose, and bring it back to have it resized (and her finger measured).

Friday night is our 'movie night' and this Friday, we were going to see the brilliant 'Batman Begins'. She was running a little late, which gave me enough time to pick the 'perfect' ring. We had planned to go for dinner in Nando's afterwards, so I thought, was Nando's a good enough place to propose? Or should I just wait for the 'beach moment'...

Well, after the movie, we went off to North Greenwich, and the queue at Nando's went out the door, and almost onto the road, we weren't in the mood for Pizza, so it was over to a nice little Chinese resturant nearby. So there we were, candle lit dinner for two.....lovely atmosphere, and a ring in my bag. So I figured, why waste this wonderful atmosphere?

I didn't get down on one knee......don't ask me why !! She has this ring she wears, so I took it off her finger, and told her I didn't want her to wear it anymore. She asked 'Why?', and I said 'Because I've got another one for you'. As she opened up the box, saw the ring, and looked over at me, I mouthed the words 'Will you marry me?'

to be continued..........................
