So I’d received the ring(s) and just couldn’t wait until Christmas to do it as first planned!

Got back late from the libarary and after a take-away (and a whisky) it just seemed right…

I got the “fake” ring out of my pocket and showed it to Lisa. I explained that as I’m back to being a student, that money was tight and it was all I could afford right now – but hopefully she still likes it…
She assured me she did and accepted my proposal!

I kept asking whether she liked it and I was sorry that it was all I could afford.
She said it was lovely and that she liked it.

I went out and got another box, which contained the real ring.
The relief on Lisa’s face when she opened it was priceless!
