I would like to share something with you and see what you think…
A quick re-cap (I am new here and just posted in the intro thread so my up to date position is there). The ring is being made as we speak. It is a replica of one I spotted at an auction (three stone 1960s mixed metal design) and according to The Canadian last weekend, the ring would take about 15 days. He also said (under excited questioning, not voluntarily of course!) he had the proposal in mind but just had to work out some logistics. I don’t want to know the details etc. and I know he won’t be drawn but I just love talking about it regardless as I just love the fact that it is coming. I’m sure you’ll relate 🙂
The Canadian told me this to avoid disappointment as it is our year anniversary on Saturday and he had hoped to propose in the place we had our first date – a coffee on a Friday evening after work in a lovely, quiet bar here in Dublin, decorated in 19th century opulence. We both love that decor so it was very fitting for us to meet there really. It was supposed to be a quick meeting due to prior commitments but lasted over an hour!
Anyway, we are going there on Saturday evening for a drink (I won’t be drinking thoiugh as I have a minor cervical op this eve and will be placed on pencillen straight away by my gynae to avoid infection). Oh ok, I’ll have a glass of champagne to celebrate the anniversary!!
So, we are a little disappointed it won’t be then as it would be so romantic yet low-key.
Soooo, he asked me the other day to make myself available Tuesday 23rd at midday as he has a surprise for me. I have a feeling this might be it! He did have to tell me there’s a surprise in store as it is midweek and I have work commitments during the week. This date co-incides with the arrival of the ring.
I think I might know what the surprise is (men aren’t subtle so I’ve dropped hints about things I like and which are so romantic, just to help the poor guy out). But this guy has his own mind and ideas so I don’t want to say for sure that it is definitely one of mine, you know.
When I teased him about it, he just had a big smile and put his eyes to heaven in a ‘you’re not drawing me on this, snoopy’ gesture!!
So, what do you ladies think?
