So… January is an expensive time for us – on top of all of the Christmas expenses
7th Jan – My birthday
16th Jan – was our 8 YEAR anniversary
21st Jan – my Dad’s birthday
27th Jan – My SO’s brothers birthday
Plus 6 out of 10 people in my department at work have Janury birthdays!
So a January proposal wasn’t on the cards, but a Feb, March, April or May one isn’t looking likely either, as in addition to the above expenses, and the monthly ring savings being on hold for January, SO has managed to crash his car, not once but TWICE, within the last month! To be fair neither were really his fault – and I was in the car for one of them so I know it wasn’t his fault – and I’m glad that he escaped the second one unharmed as he could have been injured.
It’s a Company car so he only has to pay the excess – but that totals £500.00! That’s £500.00 he’s had to manage to find out of no-where – and £150.00 that would have gone to the ring!
Before you think i’m a total cow – please note that I actually offered to use some of the the engagement ring fund to cover the costs, (praying that he wouldn’t agree!) but SO refused (phew!) – saying that if we keep using it to bail things out, it’ll never happen – Too true!
Arrgh! the best thing is that January is nearly over and we’re 1 month closer to the summer – prime proposal time!
