My partner wants to pick the ring by himself, he wants it to be a total surprise. I decided maybe I can swing him in the right direction with a little help!
I decided to stop at a few jewellers while I was out with my mum and I fell in love with my perfect ring! The sales assistant offered a deal that in our financial situation, was more than perfect – half price, until Saturday. We could actually afford it too!! (Keep in mind I’m on maternity leave and we only have one income)
So I asked my mum to pass along the details to my SO while I wasn’t around, telling him that I didn’t know she got the details for him.
I let myself get so excited, I got carried away with all my fairy tale thoughts that when I asked her how it went, the last thing I expected was for her to shake her head. What?!
“He said he wants to pick it himself, he’s planning but he’s not ready yet.”
I was crushed. I really tried to smile and say that’s ok, instead I just sat there. How could he not be ready?? He said before June! I began to dwell on it, is he planning anything or was he just saying that? is he stalling?
I guess I looked pretty upset, because my poor mum became so flustered she leant in and said; “He’s going to have a look on Saturday, don’t you dare say anything! And stop asking questions, you’ll spoil it.”
I really, really hope this is it!! I can’t take much more waiting!! I just don’t want to get my hopes up and be really disappointed if it’s not.
