Diamonds are a girls best friend!

Yes, we have an engagement in the family!!! Son No 1 (actually the one and only!!) has finally proposed to his long time girlfriend and we are all very excited. No, this is not her engagement ring!! I was just setting a simple table for two in our living room when I came across these napkin rings so just for the fun of it I used these today. I have been doing a bit of revamping in our living room over the last couple of weeks but I am not finished yet so can’t give you a full tour so thought I would just give you a peek! You know the type of redecorating exercise where you don’t want to paint, can’t afford new furniture ( actually anything new!!) but you want a new look. Well, that’s what I wanted for the start of summer. It’s looking quite nice at this stage so I’ll share it with you shortly.
We have also bought a house with our son which they will be moving into in February. It is a cute little cottage which we have big plans for so I will share the journey when we start that. Exciting times around here if it wasn’t for the down turn in agriculture!!

Congratulations to your son, his bride-to-be, and the two families!!! That is really, really great news! I am very excited for you all!!! I know the coming months will be a flurry of activity, especially preparing their new home. Have fun with it! The table you set is absolutely perfect to celebrate the occasion!!!! I'm still hoping for the best for you guys with the sheep situation. I still don't really get that ruling. Seems counterproductive to me. Have a good weekend!
