Tuesday night 21st July.... five years to the day we first kissed..... I get a suggested appointment in my Outlook diary asking me to meet him at 6.45pm outside Canada Water train station in London – which happens to be the nearest station to my office.

I get there early. I’m in my suit and fretting that he’s probably booked a restaurant as usual and I could be more dressed up – at least I can take my suit jacket off; I have a sexy top on underneath...

He arrives and we kiss.

We jump on the train to High Street Kensington and it starts raining.... we head to a bar for a glass of wine (apparently it’s too early for the table). I relax.

Half an hour later we arrive at location – Richard Branson’s Kensington Garden Roof Restaurant – its lovely – you can see the whole of London from here! I order scallops and steak and we eat. Mmmm.

After eating I decide to have a cigarette out on the balcony – he stays at the table.

I return and there is a gift waiting for me! Before I open it I know what it is. Marc Jacobs ‘Daisy’ perfume. I have the white and the black but not the green bottle which is a special edition and comes with little daisy stickers to make the bottle look like you have designed it.

I adore daisies; they are my favourite flower which is probably unusual for a gardener as they are considered a weed – but I remember the daisy chains of my childhood – and the simplicity of the sweet little flowers.

I open the wrapping and box and the packet of stickers are on the top... I remove the perfume bottle and I squeal in excitement as I try to open the packet of stickers...... and then I see him push the bottle towards me and cough...

There appears to be something glinting – attached to the top of the green flowers on the lid of the bottle..........

Congrats!

So now I'll officially have to duel the chap if we become official rivals for your affection.
Good to know, I guess.



Also, I give this site credit...no one made a comment about your "daisy chains of my childhood" line.

Love that it looks like a daisy!

It is!

Its an antique edwardian (1910) daisy cluster. He had to travel to a really cute antique place in Hastings (south of england) to buy it. Bless.

Thank you to all you lovely lot. Not been on Uber (or my laptop) for days. With this and my birthday its been a whirlwind of restaurants, presents, flowers.... I'm exhausted!

Happy though.

Berty - you have mail.

If I ever decide to get married again I want to be proposed to in a hot air balloon. Conquering two of my greatest fears at once (heights/commitment) would be exhilarating.

Marriage has worked out pretty good for me so far, but it's certainly not for everyone. Good luck.

The first year is the worst. And the third. And really, really the 7th. After that, though, it's all good.

getting married is gay merlina, still, it's not as gay as some of these reviews. 'totally falling in love' and 'I squealed a little? bleah. Just be a good wife and pick up after your husband, or he will start sleeping with his secretary and it will all be your fault.

I swear to god that woman is psychic. As soon as I posted that review, she switched to "Deep in the Heart of Texas," which is even worse.

Congrats and all that rot.

Word of advice: If you want to keep a happy marriage, do NOT whistle "Red River Valley" for six hours straight when he's hungover. He hates that. He knows you think it's hilarious, but he's thinking of cutting your lips off with a chain saw this very minute. I lost my chain saw last year. Who the fuck loses a chain saw?

no, it's not tight - actually had to have it slightly resized yesterday - is perfect now.

Probably just got slightly swollen fingers because I'm hot. And yes my hands look old - I'm 39 in two days time :-O
