UPDATE: we went for a walk around her favourite lake. I was going to do it on the way around but it was rather cold and blustery so I waited until we were on the way back to the car where we crossed a bridge. I told her I wanted to take a photo of the waterfall but pulled out a ring instead of my SLR.
She said ‘yes’.
I took some champers with me too but she suggested we go home and drink it later! 8) I agreed.
Me: When very pissed after about 6 months of seeing my missus: “I’m not actually asking like, but just suppose, theoretically like, not that I am, but if I ever asked you to marry me what would you say? Not that I am mind, just a theoretical question”
Her: “I’d say yes”
Me: “Oh. Wow.”
Got married two years later. Been married 22 years this year.
