Just a quickie post. On Friday night, Alastair, our daughter's boyfriend called to say could he come for a visit but that we mustn't let Steph know. We thought it could be something to do with a Christmas present for her. Oh what a delightful surprise we had! Al formally asked Andrew for our daughter's hand in marriage! He told us that he was going up to his parents' the following day to get his grandmother's engagement ring for Steph. It was so very romantic - I just loved it.
We are thrilled - Al is a lovely chap and so right for Steph.
Now I've got to get myself in shape - I'm going to be the bride's mother!
