My 29th of March went a little something like this....

He provided the snackrels (he knows the way to my heart is cheeseballs)

 I was maybe a little late....

I, fresh from work bounded cheerfully into the room not quite computing the solemn intensity of the moment.

Matt hastily dropped to one knee in the traditional style, I (in a somewhat less traditional style) demanded to know what was happening.

 Luckily for me he still proposed!

We then drove out to the peaks in A sneakily borrowed car and went stargazing in the snow!!

It was beautiful and crazy and I can't actually remember what I said as its kind of blurry now!!

 (apparently it was a yes though!)

The ring belonged to my great grandmother and was her engagement ring almost 100 years previously

We have now been engaged for a little over two weeks and I am enjoying it immensely, Its so exciting to be planning together and dreaming about future, Matt is an excellent wedding planning pal as he is organised and good at big picture which gives me plenty of time to think about important things like daisies and bunting.

He's gone to Norway with work this week so we've been instant chatting each other like we're 14, I miss him like he's a limb.

This and that

The other day as I was returning from work I bumped into my next door neighbour, who is my age but completing college courses to go to uni. We exchanged pleasantries and then out of the blue she admitted that she had an essay due in the next day and needed help.

I would very much like to get to know her better so I warmly invited her in. The topic as it turned out , was GCSE level Biology. I wrongly thought myself qualified to help but was happily bailed out by boyfriend and housemate. I enjoyed the picture very much though and think I want to add it into my life vision that there will always be homework being done at the table by someone random.

In other news I was in the paper today for organising a charity netball event! Unfortunately it was in fact a blonde girl who shares my name and works as a hotshot solicitor on the 3rd floor. People quite often muddle us up and she has been the reason for important things arriving in my inbox, which have nothing whatsoever to do with me.

Also has anyone noticed that its Still snowing…Still! My pure hearted friend Becky recently commented that snow still makes her heart skip a beat a little bit. I regret to say that I do not feel the same way. Spring please!

My mutti and vati have recently returned from there travels to foreign climes I want to take a moment to be impressed by them, feel free to be impressed as well!!

They are big on adventure and are in the process of reimagining their lives. They’ve been travelling for the past three months and now they are house hunting for a new project, inspiring.

Other exciting news is that Matt and me got engaged over the weekend! I will most probably post about that soon!
