Exciting news of my Marriage plans
Both of us have been divorced for quite a long time , me 18 years and him 9 years and by the time we get married we will have been together for just under 6 years - why now I can hear you ask?
Well first and foremost I am happy to publicly say that I love him to bits, so I decided that as it was a leap year that I would use my prerogative to ask him to marry me, and I am delighted to say that I got an instant yes and he is just as excited as me about the prospect - we could hardly sleep on Wednesday night.
For all you sceptics out there, after my divorce I never thought I would ever find someone that I would love so deeply, let alone get married again, but I have done exactly that, and feel like a teenager again - its wonderful.
So what plans - well first we need to secure our venue (we know exactly where) so we may have to do a few phone calls this weekend, I know exactly what type of engagement ring I would like - I adore the Art Deco style of rings. As for dresses well of course I am going to make them. I will have to plan enough to make one for me, and my bridesmaids; my daughter, my granddaughter, Mike's granddaughter Ella, my daughter-in-law and and Ella's mum.
Needless to say, I will have my work cut out for me, so I think I need to save up some holiday to spend a few weeks sewing, not to mention making the wedding cake too.
My children are delighted, my daughter said "I will have 5 brothers" she is the only girl, but we are adding to the female line with the grandchildren, I have asked my eldest son to give me away and he is quite chuffed, and all the other boys will be ushers.
OMG - I AM SO EXCITED.
