Sunday Bloggers

Whilst cruising UKS this afternoon to aid coming round after a lovely night out last night to celebrate my friend Sian getting a new job I came across today’s Blog prompt which I thought was just so heart warming for such a wet, dark and windy afternoon.

"What is the most romantic thing that anyone has ever done for you - has someone ever done anything so romantic that even now when you look back and think about it, you smile?"

Bit of a corny one here, but given the topic I guess most responses will be (!) – but it has to be July 13th 2002.

Lee had arranged for us to stay on the beautiful Gower coast for the weekend, and on the Saturday, led me down to the beach for a picnic. I was slightly suspicious of his actions - but he assured me it was just because I was soooo special and I deserved a treat. But moments later, he took my hand, dropped to one knee and took out a ring and asked me to marry him.

As romantic as it was – I couldn’t quite believe it all and was in fits of giggles, and had to ask him to repeat himself about three times until the situation sunk in.

We spent the rest of the evening high up on the sand dunes – drinking champagne as we watched the sun go down.

Four years on, we still haven’t made concrete plans for the wedding, although we’ve found the most ideal location in a place that’s very special to us – it’s just that we’re just sooooooo poor! Seriously, most of our money has gone into renovating the house (and according to Lee – my Scrapbooking stash! Fancy that?!) – but now that that’s all completed, hopefully we can now start about thinking of saving towards getting married.

Well, no other real news – Katrina has still not had her baby – seven days left to go until her due date but whether she’ll go that long nobody is sure – even the midwife thought she would have had the baby by now given her enormous size! I took these pics last weekend – I can’t wait to do a LO of the second one as it shows the only way anyone’s been able to hug her over the last couple of months due to her bump, by standing at her side!! They are all moved into their new house now – and I’m off to visit in a bit (I could do with the caffeine!!) – maybe I can coax the baby out with a bit of gentle persuasion?!!

I have done a little bit of scrapping – here’s the LO that I will be teaching at the South Wales Crop next week – I’ve sent it to Chrissie so I’m sure it will be up on the Scrappers Unlimited website very soon.
Other good news is that there is going to be a one-page article in Scrapbook Inspirations about the Swansea Crop and the monochromatic challenge they set us, and my page, along with Gems’ and Chrissies’ and a couple of the other crop-goers, are going to be used in the article.

Okey dokey – hope everyone is having a fab weekend – take care my blogeroonies!

Love, Nat xxx

Blinking gorgeous LO Nat. Look at the size of your sister's tummy, gosh, it's gonna be a big un, bless her, hope she's feeling okay, I know it's terrible tiresome towards the last few days, ankles swollen etc, lol. Can't wait for the news too. What a lovely thing of Lee to do when he proposed to you, bless. Beth XX
