For those of you who missed emperor
's post, he asked me to marry him last night
I've not come down even near the level of the ceiling yet :-)
In other news, IVFDF was wonderful. I want to write a long description of the really groovy workshops I did, and I want to write about how wonderful M is, but what I really want to do is go and fall asleep in his arms :-)

To continue a theme - congratulations and I hope you're both very happy.

Well, I've already said congratulations to him, but congratulations to you too :-) *hugs*

What I was going to say ;)
|Date:||March 2nd, 2004 02:30 am (UTC)|| |
Wow! In an attempt to be stunningly original, I say congratulations!

Oh, congratulations :).

yet more congratulations, and *hugs* too. And I still want to hear the story. Whatever happened, it's bound to have gone more smoothly and romantically than Adrian's proposal to me... tell me tell me tell me!!!

Ah well, obviously he picked a gloriously sunny day, when there was nothing else going on, and took me up to the top of John's chapel tower so I could see the whole world spread out at my feet, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him...
Nah... It was very late on the 29th, and we were very snuggly and joking about the date, and how it was the only chance I'd get to snare him for the next four years, and jokes and smiles and love lead to serious questions, and... It was wonderful, and perfect, if not at all how I'd imagined it was going to be. Sadly I was so rushed off my feet for the two days afterwards that we didn't get time to celebrate until Tuesday night! :-)

Thats really adorable. Did he already have the ring, or did you go and purchase it together afterwards (we picked ours together, which is probably good, because I have ridiculously small fingers, and most of the rings looked awful).
I am so happy for you. I think this is the best news I've had since *I* got married. *hugs*

That's pretty amazing. Did you know he'd bought it at the time?
|Date:||March 9th, 2004 02:58 am (UTC)|| |
It's even more amazing than that - we'd spotted a perfect ring while on holiday in Switzerland in the summer (well, there's nothing to do in Interlaken in an evening but browse jewellery shops), and he'd managed to track down the only UK suppliers to a shop in London... :-)

awww! That's really sweet! Even Adrian thought so.
|Date:||March 4th, 2004 05:09 am (UTC)|| |
Congratulations! I know you'll be very happy.

Re: bounce bounce
I can't think who else would be using Piqueen, but settle my paranoia and confirm it's you and I'll friend you so you can read all the dull things I witter about in this LJ...

Re: bounce bounce
Yes - I've been lurking for a while but your news prompted me to delurk.
I'd love to see you and bounce up and down in person (I've been smiling since I read your post).

Re: bounce bounce
Meeting up would be great. You must be planning to be up in Cambridge at some point soon though?
Oh, I haven't seen Kate to tell her yet, so don't let it slip (having said that, it's probably all round the gossip chain already...). I have a bad feeling she'll disapprove of my wanton haste and mad happiness though ;-)
If you think you've been smiling too much you should see the grin on my face :-D
I know we've never actually met, but I thought I would add my voice to the congratulations. I sure if I did meet you, I would think you were a lovely couple!

Darling, that's absolutely wonderful; greatest congratulations. Happiness all round. When can we meet up so I can see your ring?
