- Wedding: November 2014 - Historic cinema
So I had an horrendous waiting meltdown last night, catch up on my recent posts and you’ll find that I have been living with Manfriend for 3 weeks and he had promised we would be engaged before I shacked up.
Anyway, withh still no action I had a huge meltdown and cried my eyes out to him last night about how awful it is to wait “I can direct you to a whole forumm of women who feel like me!” I blubbered.
I think he ended up understanding and he said, he hasn’t been able to come up with a great idea yet because he wants (and I want) something relly special and meaningful.
I made the mistake (?) of telling him I have dozens of ideas of what he ould do and then he said “Well, it is 2013, you could propose to me. I wouldn’t mind that at all.” Cue torrential blubbering…you see I am a vintage girl, I dress like a 1950s pinup every day and like old fashioned ideas like men holding doors open etc….except that in our relationship, I pursued him. I asked him out, said I love you first, initiated moving in and the marriage talk and I had really hoped he would give me this one thing.
Anyway, being a creative person, my mind immediately thought of a fab idea of how I would propose to him.
My mind then went further into overdrive and I have made up my mind to propse proposing to him tonight! He will still do the actual asking but I will take care of the big buildup!
We live in his independant dvd hire store and our lives revolve around film.
The store closes at 10pm and he will get home from squash at about 11pm so I am going to hide clues in dvd covers of films that mean something to us, like: “Look for the first film we saw at the cinema together” which will lead him to another film with some personal meaning for us.
The last clue will tell him to go and put the ring in his pocket and check for a love note (we have a blackboard wall in our bedroom where we write each other notes).
The path to the bedroom will be lit with candles and strewn with rose petals and on the blackboard he’ll find a note saying “DR Rxxxxx Jxxxx Sxxxxx, will you do me the great honour of proposing to me”
He can take it from there.
So, what do you gals think? This whole process of the idea through to the execution is taking place within 24 hours! EEk!
Am also thinking in each dvd case I’ll slip an envelope with a note detailing a reason I want to marry him.
I’m so excited!!!
