Engagement marks the end of a whirlwind romance and beginning of an eternal love story.

In the midst of the heatwave, something wonderful happened! Almost a week ago we ventured to the meadow in the early morning (because it was the best time to beat the heatwave!) with our coffees in hand, and Maisy, and sat watching the view.

In the quiet, in the very place where we had our first ‘date’ almost six years ago to the day, William proposed and I, absolutely of course, said YES!

This will be a story we will always tell because even today somewhere on that meadow is a tiny little diamond (I mean little, it was one of the side diamonds and you’ll never find it!) Seconds after putting the ring on my finger we both looked down and realised that one of the small diamonds on the side of the ring had vanished… We both looked at each other in shock, then down at the dog (no she wasn’t interested, she faced the opposite way the whole time) and then we contemplated the tiny sugar crystals on the bench that we had shaken into our coffee. No way… short of dissolving each one until we were sure, it was impossible! Alls well that ends well, another ring is on order and I am not parted from this one just yet – but what a story we have for the next heatwave!

In true organised form (me), we launched ourselves into searching, planning, hunting down venues and in general, just thinking of ideas and celebrating with family and friends – and it’s all very exciting. standby for more news on that pesky heatwave, but I couldn’t get away without blogging for so long and then NOT coming back with the big news first… !

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.”
― William Shakespeare ―

The snow melted today and with it went the cold snap. I started off taking my photos of the day first thing this morning before a Monday packed full of meetings and other various bits and pieces. I finally received the laptop and printer that work promised me last December and therefore manage to get a lot more done in the way of admin and working alongside clients too. My job involved assisting people with learning difficulties to find and apply for jobs – and then if needed to support them for some weeks in the workplace too. Laptops and a steady internet connection are vital for job searching and online applications.

So that was a productive day and unfortunately the photos are ones that will seem familiar for I shot a similar view some weeks ago. However I did think that the melting snow was significant and the water droplets looked pretty – plus it’s a photo! So I’m not complaining if you’re not!

And I also wanted to share some photos that I took late last night – that’s not cheating I promise! I borrowed my Father’s 500mm lens and set it up to take some rather wobbly shots of the moon…and was very pleased with the outcome given that it was a cloudy and cold night! So there we have it, some water droplets and the moon and a rather busy day. Perhaps I’ll get more adventurous tomorrow…
