Ok, so most of you probably already know, but James and I got engaged on Saturday! 6 years and 4 months we've officially been together (with about a year of messing around before that, courtesy of James being a typical 16/17 year old commit-a-phobe haha) and now we're engaged. Excited doesn't even cover it.

It was a total surprise! James had been out in Glasgow during the day and when he came home he told me he couldn't get the book I wanted but that he'd got me something else and to close my eyes. I was standing at this point and felt like a right numpty standing with my eyes closed and my hands out like a child haha, but eventually he told me to open them and he was on 1 knee with my ring and asked me to marry him. I'm pretty sure I said "of course I will, ya dafty" (pleasant) and burst out laughing. When I hugged him I realised he smelled a little of booze, so he must've been nervous, bless.

He hadn't told anyone about it apart from his 2 best friends so we had to phone our parents and that ended up being dinner at my family's house and his mum came over too. Lots of wine and champagne later and I was beat.

I don't have anything really to report in terms of wedding arrangements as we won't really have money until James starts work in August, so I doubt we'll be booking anything until then, but we will be having a party to celebrate with our friends and family :) We both have big families so it'll be busy.

Anyway, I get my ring back on Friday! Woop! It was too big so we had to order a different size. I'll post a picture when I can wear it :)
