So I've been reading in Playing Grown Ups blog sweet stories of marriage proposals which made me think about mine and how AMAZING it was. So amazing AMAZING has to be capitalised!
As she was walking up the street a picture message arrived on her phone. It was a picture of a tiny stenciled bird that was on the wall next to his house. The message said "this little bird has something to tell you." She knew about the bird because her angel had shown it to her just a few days before. And also a few days before that. She had laughed at him for telling her something twice.
When she arrived at his house, the big old rambaling rectory, now student accomodation, she went straight to the birdy graffiti. Unlike in the picture not only was the bird there but now there was also a pretty note taped to the wall underneath it. She excitedly opened it. It had a clue written inside, it led her to the letterbox..
She went to the letter box and there was another clue inside and a key into his house.
A TREASURE HUNT was laid!
Then as the sun really was setting they stood on the ocean wall, in a state of extreme happyness. He took her hands and turned to face her and said "I want to spend the rest of my life with you, will you marry me Sophie Dee?"
Because then they went out for chai tea.
Then they got married.
But that's a whole other post.
