What a weekend...

Andrew had planned a weekend away for Valentine's Day for a while, but wouldn't tell me where we were going.

So we left Friday night (managed to find out it was Sydney by then, so luckily knew what to pack - very important...), and checked into the GORGEOUS Observatory hotel which is at the Rocks. This place was stunning - I've never stayed in a genuine 5 star hotel before I don't think! The bathroom was HUGE and had a beautiful shower and bath, the bedroom had a massive king sized bed with the most comfortable and cozy blankets and pillows I've ever slept on. Very impressive....

Then on Saturday morning we set off for the next mystery event which was a harbour bridge climb.

Then..... when we got to the top of the bridge..... he got down on one knee and proposed!!!!! Woohoo! Of course, I said yes.....

It was all very exciting and romantic. So we had that, then went back to the hotel to tell all of the family. My mum already knew (Andrew rang her to ask her permission to marry me - awwww) and of course big mouth that she is she'd already told nearly everyone else in my family!!! But still, everyone was very excited!

So, I have a nice sparkly ring on my finger which I'm terrified of losing - I don't wear rings and it feels funny!

Now, to plan the wedding...
