I am engaged ! - There's something about Mary...

Mar. 1st, 2011 03:07 pm I am engaged !

 I posted this on facebook yesterday, so some of you will have seen it there already, but.....

timpootle  and I are engaged to be married :-)

Tim proposed to me on Sunday, while we were driving round the M25 (that well known romantic location) - this was followed by me telephoning my Dad and sister and bouncing down the phone at them!  My Dad's response was " oh that's delightful!! "  and " about time really " which was a particularly welcome response since Tim had worried that perhaps he should have asked my father first.    

We haven't set a date yet - on the one hand, we'd like to marry tomorrow; on the other hand, my Dad's diary is already full for most of the coming year - so, we have got as far as "sometime in 2012".

Our first thought for location was Jodrell Bank, but they don't do weddings.  We have some other ideas too, but, funds will be rather limited I fear, so it rather depends how good at haggling I am I think.  We shall see.

But anyway, yay!  Me and Tim!  *bounce*  

Guess I had better buy a dress then...

Bletchley Park do weddings, if the idea of getting married at Station X appeals...

I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who thinks a geek wedding at Bletchley Park is a good idea. :D

Oh yes - my heartiest congratulations to you both. :)

Congratulations my dear!!

I don't think many people ask the father of the bride to be's permission anymore. Some women may even be insulted and think she's being accused of not being able to make her own decisions, lol.

Congratulations! :-)

Jodrell Bank sounds like a suitably scientific location, not to mention being fairly close at hand for you both...shame they don't do weddings!

Congratulations to you both and good luck with arranging your big day.

I'm happy to help with any suggestions of how to do things on a sensible budget becuase that's what Sarah and I did.

It's the metal rope thing on the NW corner of UMIST campus.

Apart from what I said on FB, let me just say again I am so very happy for both of you. You are both wonderful :-)
