Shiny sparkly

Just got back from a week in Lincoln with some exciting news - the OH proposed whilst we were away and I accepted!

It was all very exciting and very romantic. Unbeknown to me he spent some time thinking about the best place in which to propose and when we went into Lincoln Cathedral on Monday evening he waited until all the tourists (and my Mum) had disappeared from the cloisters, before getting down on one knee and proposing!

He couldn't actually have chosen a better place - not only is the cathedral a really special place for me, but he also proposed underneath the Wren Library, which is where I decided on my rare books librarian career (which led to me meeting him) whilst doing work experience aged 15!

The ring was his grandmother's and is absolutely beautiful. And also fits me perfectly!

I will post more soon but thought I'd post the exciting bit now!

Huge congrats!! Will toast you both with a hot choc at the TTT at GB next weekend!

And the cathedral is totally gorgeous - (my home church is the little one in the castle square, btw). Seems like your life together is well blessed from the start!

Congratulations and what a story, he obviously put a lot of thought into it. The fact that the ring fits is an omen that things were meant to be.
