Life Update!

I keep thinking that one day I'll resurrect this blog and actually start posting on it more often.  Yet it doesn't happen.  Maybe one day life will slow down and I'll get a chance.

Life doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon.  But it's good busyness.  Yep, lots is happening at the moment.  Some highlights:

- Mum is having another baby in September (number 12!)

- I'm working 40 hours a week as a legal executive at work (I was promoted from a legal secretary which means I have a lot more responsibility.  Day to day, that looks like a lot more file work, meeting with clients and document preparation).  I have finished my study and am actually graduating this week.

- I'm getting married!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, you read that right... David proposed to me on the 9th of May and I said yes.  For those of you who will ask for the story, here goes...

We went out for dinner, then we drove around a bit and then we went to the Botanic Gardens in the dark and stopped on the same bridge that we started our courtship on 9 months ago to the day..... then David got down on one knee and did this little speech about what he loves about me and said he wants to spend the rest of his life with me and then he asked me to marry him, then I hesitated for a second because I thought maybe he was joking, then I realised he was being serious, then I told him I would love to marry him...... we then drove to the mall and picked out a ring together. :)

We are so excited about this new season of life.  It has, however, plunged us into a whirlwind of wedding planning, where-shall-we-live-when-we-get-married planning, honeymoon planning and just all the general whirlwind of life.  But I love it.  It's so exciting and such a great reason to be busy!  I’ve got the best man in the world and I get to marry him.  Our wedding date is mid/late February next year.

Engagement has a nice ring to it!
