We called his family and all he had to say was that he had an announcement to make, and his mother started to squeal like a high school girl.
He's the only son and eldest, I'm an only child. This has been impatiently waited for by both sides. His mother even proposed to me - twice!
So now planning starts - when, where, what... Times two, one for each country, plus the addition of tracking down the paperwork so we can do the legal part of it all...
But I must admit I've gone all girly and can't think about paperwork when Google awaits with image searches like "engagement ring" and "wedding dress"!!
