My last real "update-on-life" post was waaaay back in September after I finished my dissertation. Sorry about that! I know most (if not all) of you keep up with me outside the blog as well, but I still feel I owe a proper post about what's been going on in my life.
Back at the end of August, we took a trip to Aberglasney Gardens, a beautiful mansion house and gardens with pools and fountains and woodlands and all sorts of flowers. We had a lovely day out, it ended up being the last properly warm, summery (well, as summery as Wales can get) weekends that we had, and at the end of the trip I proposed to Josh. This was something I'd been planning for a while but waiting for the right time. I'd never managed to actually surprise him with anything up until that point, and I was so pleased that I pulled it off, because he was speechless, which anyone who's ever met him knows is a huge deal!
