Alright alright. I’ve kept you waiting long enough. I think it is now okay to put it out to my cyber-supporters here…last week Del took me to one of those great English historical estates (Chatsworth) which I love so much. And…he popped the question!
I was completely not expecting it (at least not just now), so my immediate reaction was a stern-ish, “Are you joking?” But of course he said no! and so I said yes! 🙂
So that’s why I’ve been running around doing other things rather than writing. Calling family and friends. I finally had to send an email to some because the days were ticking by to where people would begin to hear through others anyway and start to think why has it taken her so long to tell me? And my retelling of the story was getting less and less interesting (as my options for altering the telling had been well used up). We went to Paris over the weekend to see friends and enjoy the luxury of having such a romantic place just an hour away on the train, the trip being a lovely engagement gift from my future M and FIL.
I have been thinking more about combining future posts to the other blog. It just feels right to begin to lay this aside as an almost daily discussion and to pick up the old pre-cancer and new post-cancer threads of life. Certainly I’m starting a new chapter. So I think I should, well, actually do that.
But not quite yet today. I shall sit on it a little more. For now I’m going to go look at some wedding mags and giggle! Whoopee!
