…Not an e-ring unfortunately, but a very pretty one thats all mine (hahaha). (Sorry it’s a long one)
So last week was pretty bad… My co-worker got engaged on their 1st anniversary, two weeks prior SO and i went for a walk and has a burger on our 8 YEAR anniversary! (long term waiting bees’ I know you can understand my pain!)
This ensued with some sulking and moping around the house (Monday), followed by a serious case of the green eyed monster (Tuesday) followed by a full blown arguement going on until 1am (wednesday/thursday). The arguement was the usual – he hasn’t saved enough money yet, i’d remind him that he’s had 8 years to save and my co-workers Fiance has only had 12 months but managed to do pretty well (not my proudest moment!), SO would say ‘well good for him’ and then tell me that he can’t pull money out of his A$$ so i’m just going to have to wait.
Then I went into crazy mode, (and i get pretty crazy) looking around the house for things to sell/ebay to raise funds, getting old things repaired so that I don’t need to buy new ones etc. All in all it was pretty productive and I got a lot I wanted to do, done.
I then came across this old ring I bought off ebay a while back (that didn’t fit as it was a rash decision to prove to SO that if he wasn’t going to treat me to a ring then i’d treat myself [despite the fact that it’s too small and was far too cheap to be anything of any real value!]) I’ll call this my crazy ring. Well on Saturday, SO agreed to be my chauffer for the morning as he get cheap fuel through his Company. After a few errands I asked him to drop me off at the jewlers, and told him he didn’t need to come with me (I can walk home from there). SO said he didn’t mind coming, so we went in to get the ‘crazy’ ring re-sized. The jewler then told me it is a REAL Sapphire and Diamond white gold ring! YAY!
After that my SO starts talking to the jewler about engagement rings (he’s so cute when he does this as he doesn’t really know what he’s talking about! we’ve been visiting this jewler for almost a year talking about rings), and the jewler said that he’s getting a new shippment of diamonds in at the beginning of March. SO said that is when he is thinking of getting the ring made, as it will take a few weeks to make and for him to save for the rest.
So, the jewler has my beautiful sapphire and diamond ring… my finger size, which SO took a keen interest in and I’ve only got about 10 more weeks of crazy! (p.s it just hit me that I can now start counting in weeks (squee!))
In the mean time I told SO that i’d wear my new ring on my left hand (at home) so that I can pretend while i’m cooking dinner etc – he thinks i’m totally nuts but also found it a bit funny! So the green-eyed monster has gone and i’m completely bonkers! It’s gonna be a fun 10 weeks!!!!
