You're not going to believe this ...........

On my recent trip to New Zealand and Australia I asked my wonderful girlfriend to marry me and she said yes! Actually I can't believe that I've got caught, I thought I'd got away with it!

Here's a photo the morning after on Doubtful Sound - I'll spare you all the details but it was romantic!

Congratulations to you, Cookee, and commiserations to Mandy. Only joking - I hope you'll both be very happy.

Have you set a date yet? Richard and I have been engaged for nearly 19 years now! I'm still hedging my bets in case someone better comes along.
