The News

I have some news I have neglected to share.
It doesn't involve flowers but rather a sandwich maker box.
It doesn't involve a bended knee but it does have a ring.
It was just like him, simple with humour, it was just like me, no fuss.
Mr Sparky and I got engaged over Christmas.
It was/ is exciting, bubbling with happiness, filled with hope and expectation but really no different to before, well, except for a ring.
We are happy.

I finally got my ring back just before we headed south so I was armed with what family wanted to see, that is other than out happiness. I then took some photos while there because I couldn't help myself. I think Mr Sparky is still shaking his head.

We of cause did the message and ring around to share the news, not straight away, but we did. I liked having our little secret for a little while. Everyone always has the same questions after the excited congratulations and they involve the wedding ... when? where? My answer is not sure yet, soonish. When I couldn't reply to one work mate he kept going with the most original question yet, "okay so do you know the colours then?" That one was fairly safe to answer, blue, I think as we both like it. This is the same work mate who 'high fived' and said "welcome to the other side" (or something like that). He is a classic that is for sure.

Life here is carrying on as normal, well except for my growing wedding Pinterest board filled with countryfied wedding ideas.
