Hi fellow waitingbees!
Had an amazing weekend this weekend as my parents were with us visiting and it was great to spend time with them (they live over 500 miles away and we see his parents ALL the time – they’re awesome but hey, these are my folks!)
Anyway, my Mum turns 60 next week and has asked my Dad to get her an engagement ring. She can’t wear one for her job (as a midwife) and has finally retired so feels it’s overdue and for various reasons they didn’t get one when they got engaged 30 something years ago. So on Saturday we were out together just me and her and I pulled her towards a jewellers – she knows my gorgeous boy has said he’s saving for a ring – and we were looking at the rings in the window with me pointing things out that I like. She really didn’t seem fussed so we went on our way.
My Boyfriend or Best Friend spends all day with my dad and when we met them in the evening, he was just full of confidence and acting particularly jolly. *did he ask???!!* I thought to myself! On the sunday mum suddenly starts asking if we’ll go past a jewellers because she wants to have a look and needs my opinion so I pretty much decided that my Boyfriend or Best Friend and my Dad had had a chat. Did any of you have any clues??
Then sunday night I had a horrid dream that he proposed with some melting metal and I said I didn’t really like the ring so he made me live somewhere else with someone else’s shoes – interpret that Freud!
Agh! It’s such a crazy time waiting. I don’t think it will happen until Feb / March but I’m so excited to think that he’s getting it together – however long it takes him.
Did any of you have crazy pre-proposal dreams?!
Good luck all you hopeful xmas proposal bees!! Hope Santa remembers your address (and your ring size!)
