A proposal.

So, in the icy drizzle Bill and I wandered up to the Pimple, the little building on the hill above a hidden reservoir near my house. Even the ponies were more sensible and not out in this weather. It was dark and you could see the twinkling lights of Tavistock spreading across the landscape back in the direction we had come.

We made it to the top and tried to find a sheltered side to huddle against, no luck there! Snuggled anyway and then Bill surprised me by giving me a little packet, an extra special Christmas Pressie.

A ring! A diamond ring! An uncut diamond, set into a ring of cast iron which he then placed on my ring finger!

He asked me to marry him.

I said yes.

*bounce*

Bill, you’re great, I love you! Whooo! We’re going to be married!

*more bouncing*

We stayed up there in the cold quite some time, snuggling and bouncing and getting all muddy.

I’m ENGAGED to my dodgy vile redneck! YAY!

Took a while to announce it here because we wanted to tell various people “in person” first, did an announcement on the forums the other day though:

pinkaboo…will you marry me?

    Well “Congratulations!” from me too. I hope the wedding doesn’t continue with the theme of the proposal (ie icy-cold and muddy).

    I shall have to spread the word…

    Awww, thanks Nolly!

    Hmm, what to wear? *panics!*

    Though I guess that’ll be the least of my worries what with all the VISA and INS stuff we have to work through. 🙁 ARGH!

    Still, who knows! Pink is always an option!
    Do they do platform Buffalos in white?

    Thanks Clay! *hugs*

    Hmm, I’m hoping that we might have better odds for decent weather for the wedding seeing as it looks likely to be held in the Deep South. (Atlanta) Can’t possibly be as horrible, cold and rainy as the South West of England, can it?!!

    Though, knowing my luck we’ll get freak freezing rain or something. UGH.
