Let's shout from the roof tops! And of course dance in the streets.

On Tuesday, Inspector Climate asked me to marry him.

I, of course said "YES!"

It was while we cuddled up in bed about to take a nap, snuggled up inside blankets and wrapped around each other to keep warm.

It was both unexpected and completely predetermined (more on that later).

Our families are beyond excited with skype phone calls had and emails sent and normal phone calls - a truly international experience.

I am supposed to be working, but I couldn't keep it in any more - and I certainly couldn't keep this secret from the internet for a second more, I was going to burst!


  1. OMG! CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  2. I'm so happy for you! Oh, how sweet..I'm excited for you!

  3. AHHH, I love it!!!! After I got your email I immediately came to the blog to see if there was a story. YAY, a sweet cuddly proposal is so adorable. Can't wait for more details :)

  4. Yay!!! I am so happy for you hunny! AND I am happy that it happened on your terms. Can't wait to hear more! =)

  5. Mazel tov! I like the sound of a cuddly proposition. I'm planning a Melbourne wedding at the moment, so if you need any ideas, let me know.

    Does that mean no more FBI, English and TB tests?

  6. I've been lurking and not commenting...
    BUT YAY!


  8. WAY TO GO!!! CONGRATS!!! Will this make you a dual citizen?

  9. Oh, congrats! This is great!!

    You should check out A Practical Wedding. I'm a big fan of their approach to weddings, and bucking the Wedding Industrial Complex when necessary. 'Do's and Don'ts for Friends of the Pre-Engaged' is a rather funny post, but you might also appreciate the post on 'Questions to Ask Before Marriage'.

    The commenters on the blog are all fairly thoughtful, too. Some of my favorite discussions come from the post 'On Name Changing and Weddings.'

    It's worth a look! Good luck :)
