So you will probably have read about the year that we had that was, well let's be honest, a little taste of Hell. The last life-changing-in-a-negative-way event was the miscarriage in February. Six months on I would like to tell you what has happened to us since...
May 13th 2011 - We moved into our new house. Our first home that we own, as a couple, as a family. It's beautiful. Newly renovated and a perfect space for Will.
June 21st 2011 - a positive pregnancy test!
August 12th 2011 - after a long few weeks of nausea, exhaustion, a couple of scares and 3 scans later our fetus is 12 weeks along and looking healthy! Fingers crossed on or around March 4th 2012 our wee Will will become a big brother
August 17th 2011 - Shaun proposed! On a beautiful beach in Cornwall with a stunning ring. We are getting married!!!!
Today, right now, I literally could not be happier.
Now I am sure that anyone who, in the space of 3 months, buys a home, gets successfully pregnant and then gets engaged is over the moon but I am more than that. I am smug. I am that person that thinks their life is just the frigging best. And do you know what, I think I deserve to.
I don't believe in fate, or karma, or luck. But I do believe that after 2010, 2011 deserved to be a good year for me and Shaun. And it's turning out just that way.
Of course, when we met my parents to celebrate within 2 minutes my Mum had fallen over and broken her ankle so we spent the afternoon in hospital sans celebration but you can't have it all. And as much as I feel sorry for her, it's not taken away any of my buzz.
I AM GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!
