This is just me chattering away – I’m not really looking for advice or anything, but feel free to reply 🙂
A few weekends ago, me and SO went to an ancient town in search for antique jewellery shops. We found one good one which had a few rings similar to my picture. I tried them on, and i came to agree that they’re not what we class as ‘engagement ring-y’.
On the drive home, we were talking about engagement and rings. I said that I worry that I’ll keep changing my mind and he’ll either never buy my anything, or he’ll worry that anything he does buy me won’t be what I want.
For ages now SO has been saying he wants to go to Birmingham Jewellery Quarter to pick one out. I suggested that we go together, pick one together – then we’re both happy with the choice, then he’ll keep it and propose with it when he wants to. he isn’t very keen on the idea of proposing without a ring, and wants to propose in his own way – we think that the above is a good compromise.
Am I right to think that ring shopping (for real), I’ll know when it’s the ONE When I try it on?
Anyway, so now if we’re going together, we need to book the trip right? Well I said that and apparently I don’t need to know when we’ll be going! He’ll just bundle me into the car one morning and drive us to the train station/ drive all the way. Sweet, but argh, I like to know!
Oh! Also his parents are away for a 2 month trip. We were talking last night and I suddenly thought, we can’t get engaged when they’re away because an email isn’t really very nice to tell them. We have an unusual relationship with FPIL anyway, and this didn’t seem to bother SO too much. But if he does think it’s not right, that puts off the engegment to the end if August.
Its so frustrating and exciting knowing the funds are there, just waiting now. Waiting, waiting. I wish he would stop reminding me that he has the money.
Oh he also didn’t ask my Dad AGAIN over my birthday! sorry that turned a bit ranty…
