The point of this post :

2008 - SOH has made me a very happy lady :-) by asking me to marry him - and of course I said yes. Love you very much Boss xx xx

ps - to answer some of your questions, no we haven't set a wedding date yet. I think SOH ought to choose a date as I would like to get married in Cornwall as the majority of family would be able to come; when we have a date we will let you know.

I lurked through the tales of your lengthy bike ride and enjoyed them.
