7 years today:)

So we went for a meal in a local, award winning, pizza restaurant in Glenelg. After we’d eaten that LOF was very keen to get back to the beach outside our house before the sun set. Very romantic i thought especially on our special day. It has been seven years since we first embarked on our relationship. We sat on our designated beach blanket and got comfy when LOF suddenly had the urge to run to the loo. When he came back he returned with an odd shaped package and presented it to me, with a card. After opening the card which read ” thanks for the last 7 years, if get another 70 I’ll be a lucky man” I was told that the person inside the package had to be opened at sunset, thus the wait and that I had to hold him up a certain way. Excitedly i ripped open the paper, fully expecting a pig. Instead, i was greated by a kangaroo. I was a little confused at this point and was wondering why it wasn’t a pig! lol
LOF then pointed out that there was something extra in his pouch. A small package was sticking out. Still, i though ah he’s bought a necklace or something that’s nice. I began to open it and LOF said “this is the point where I have to get traditional and ask you to be my wife” a little dazed and excited I said ” of course I will” whilst hugging him and struggling to breathe!

I then had to make sure that all of this was true and that I wasn’t dreaming. For the last 7 years Marriage has been the last thing on LOFs mind for various reasons. As such, despite all the very obvious clues I had resigned myself to the fact that we were probably never getting married; i guess this made it very easy for him to surprise me!

I’m really happy. It took about 2 hours and have various conversations with mothers, nans and best friends about it all! He has chosen a stunning ring and the kangaroo was a genius idea! lol

There was some bad news though… the kangaroo did originally have something else its pouch. A baby Joey… He had to surgically remove it – well its head!! poor thing. So now I have an engagement ring, a kangaroo and a joey’s head!

Brilliant 🙂 🙂 🙂
