Well I'm back again and yes I wasn't overly successful last time!! Why does life think it has the right to get in the way of 'good fun'! As I said I have SO much to share. I have decided to keep my posts short and sweet and much more frequent. Today has to be a pictureless one as we are having a few camera disasters. The horsey one broke her camera in China (she thinks she dropped it one too many times - yep that would do it!!) and lo and behold mine stopped working not long after. I rushed out and bought a new camera for the horsey one on the proviso it was for the whole family until I bought myself a new one. Now it is playing up so it might be back to the shop tomorrow.
Last week my sister (baby if you must know!) celebrated her 40th Birthday. She lives in England and Mum (whose birthday is the same date) was over there celebrating with her. In the evening her partner Iain (they have been together about 15 years) took her for a walk (in the cold and drizzle) along the canal near their home. She was panicking that maybe he'd planned a surprise party and everyone was arriving at that moment!! No need to worry, instead he proposed! To celebrate her accepting he screwed a small plaque into the fencepost that stated they had become engaged at that place on that date!!!!!!!!!!!! How romantic is that? The next exciting part of the story is I may just have to travel to the UK sometime next year to celebrate their wedding. I am so happy for her and wish her and Iain every happiness for the future.
