Happy Valentine’s Day! Although the cynical amongst us will say that today is all about card companies and florists and Willy Wonka making money I thought that I would share this post again (I originally posted this in August 2007 when it happened!)
It is 10 in the morning and I am happily tucked up in my bed dozing. Suddenly a door slams and there are footsteps running up the stairs. Mr C comes into the room and kneels on the floor next to the bed.
Mr C: Are you awake?
Me: Mmm sleeping.
Mr C: Can I ask you a question?
Me: Snuggling further down under the duvet and mumbling Go away, I’m sleeping.
Mr C: It won’t take long.
Me: Reluctantly opening eyes Mmmm
Mr C: Will you marry me?
Fairy: Eyes wide open What? Are you joking?
Mr C: Producing pretty wrapped box No
Me: Sat up, wide awake Yes!
