I'm going to be one of those...

women that show of their rings in the most unnatural ways possible. NOT.

Officially we are now engaged. His parents are psyched to have a "goeie boeremeisie" in their family. My family still needs to warm up to the idea that he is not Afrikaans - at least my Dad loves him!

If you were wonderig, the ring is beautiful. Flawless diamonds. White gold. Perfect.

One other thing. I will not be changing my surname. I quite like it. Besides, I'm too lazy to change passports, ID books, banking details... I just don't do queues all that well either - especially not in South Africa.

Sigh! Ring shopping.

Today we tried to actually get a ring on my finger. No luck. We had to leave by the second fitting - a unexpected call for my (dare I say it) F I A N C E.

At least I know that eternity rings are the way to go for my slender fingers :)

The secret slowly uncovers itself

So much for keeping it on the low-down until we have sorted the bling :) The fmilies know and the neighbours know.

Trying to count

Recently one of my friends asked me on exactly how many dates I've been. I tried to count, but somewhere along 76 I gave up.

I don't think it is healthy to have to try and remember the past too well!
I do however admit that I don't see anything wrong with going on as many dates as I did - it gave me the opportunity to meet lots of new people and make some new friends.

Another countdown

I have lots to count down to this year, Europe and the big secret.

Why do I suddenly have secrets? Well, Its not really a secret, more like an untold certainty. I know that most of you have guessed it anyway, but first off to Europe and then the rest of my life can happen. (Sounds a bit crazy - doesn't it?)

This weekend we will have the first mixed friends social at my house. Should be interesting as we have very different types of friends. I'm just I'm thinking, pool, sun, pool noodle and food.
