Today we shopped without any obvious dropping for the engagement ring. The well chosen model being an antique (pre 1837) Georgian diamond and pearl example bought from a highly reputable source in the diamond district in Thistle Street Edinburgh. It was safely packed away in a little box and duly placed on the correct finger whilst eating chips and drinking coffee by the checkouts in IKEA. We like to do things properly and traditionally in this family.
The finger + ring + flowers from Emma photos were taken once we'd made it back home armed with our IKEA biscuits, cat cushions and shower curtains. The rain never seems to stop but life in all it's fullness and richness carries on regardless.
