Haydyn and I had talked about for a while. We had bought the ring with the intention of getting engaged on Bonfire night - but Haydyn's sister got there before…

I was 22 and he was 35
I did, breaking with tradition I know, but it felt right.
I told Duncan that I needed to talk to him when he dropped me home in his car, I spent about half an hour uming and arhing because I was so scared of what I was about to say. I couldn’t look him in the face, but when he laughed and said yes it was the best feeling in the world.
My friends at work, and my sister, I was unsure about telling the rest of my family as they are very traditional people who like things done a certain way.
It’s an 8ct White gold ring, with some tiny amethyst stones half way round the band, and a bigger amethyst on the centre.
Yes I saw it and fell in love with it, good thing it was on sale!
Duncan was wearing my dad’s wedding ring by way of an engagement ring, but we just had it resized to fit his ring finger so now he can’t wear it.
We’re planning a combined party at the end of November, moving in together and engagement, and new jobs. Everything all at once! Its a fancy dress party so it should be amazing.
It’s going to be at our local pub..
All our friends really. Anyone who we think needs to be there.
Just fancy dress.
Knowing that the planning is over!
