Thanks!

Thank you everyone for your lovely congratulations and successfully guessing what my wonderful news is! We actually got engaged on Christmas Day, but have been waiting for the ring to make things "official". Isn't it gorgeous?! I couldn't resist putting this picture up as well - it's not completely off-topic as after all the bit in my profile says that I love baking, books and my boyfriend. Might have to make a change there, although fiance doesn't begin with B! No plans to set a date yet, it won't be for a year or so, and I need to get used to the sensation of having something on my finger!

It was a lovely Valentine's weekend as we had a wonderful trip on Saturday to see Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Opera house. It was an absolutely fantastic ballet - although it was 3 hours long it went very quickly, and we were wowed by the sets, huge cast and the dancing. This was good as I could easily have spent the whole performance staring at my left hand! On Sunday I baked, as you saw earlier, and we went to a special showing of Breakfast at Tiffany's at the cinema, before having some heart shaped pasta for supper!

  6. What a romantic weekend. Romeo and Juliet must have been divine. I chuckled at the trouble you're having not looking at your ring all the time. I thought I might crash my car, I was so consumed with staring at my left hand. (I didn't). I also took ages to write into patient's notes that first week as I ended up gazing at my ring instead of writing!
