I've done the honourable thing.....

Post by Nuts4my827 » Wed May 12, 2010 8:29 pm

And proposed to my GF of nearly 2 years. :D

Wasn't sure exactly how to do it, or where, but knew it had to be significant and special. We have discussed getting married in the past, so I kinda knew she would say yes (hopefully!!)

So, last week I had a the week off, and we went around and out for a few days.

One day I had arranged to see Alice in Wonderland 3D at teh O2, followed by a trip to the National Maritime Museum. Serena (my G/F) was well up for this as had been many years ago, and wanted to go again.

Went to Greenwich park to park up, took a walk down to the Royal Observatory, and went to the Museum. On the way round, I stopped her on the time line, under the Telescope that marks the 0 Line of Longitude, and told her how important this place was for time throughout the world (she said she knew), and how important she was to me (she said she knew), and how I wanted to spend all time with her. I then pulled out a jewelery bag with a 'different' shaped box.

Serena was supprised, and asked if I had bought her a watch!!

The look of sheer delight, supprise and love on her face was priceless. (She said yes :D )

I am now engaged, and we are looking for a place to get married 8)

Oh, and I am VERY happy

My condolences. :D

Remember to be firm in the beginning, demand at least 2h of garage quality time per day and you'll end up with 20minutes which isn't too bad.

haven't you heard the saying "Don't get married, just buy a house for someone you don't like "

Seriously though, congratulations.
