The "Happy News" that I alluded to yesterday can now be shared
drum roll please Maestro
ta da da dahh [ okay so that's more like a trumpet fanfare... sue me ]
As of last Saturday evening Nadie and The Boy are now engaged.
I have no idea whether he went down on the traditional bended knee - it was twilight on a wet and windy beach, so perhaps not, but in any case, as both sets of parents have now been informed, as well as one hysterically happy Italian Grandmother, 't'is official.
We WERE all going to be told in person at Christmas but a certain Boy leaked the news to his mother yesterday and so I was promptly thereafter told over the phone
she was up here Monday and didn't tell me !!!! Little Beggar ! I needed to hug someone and there was no one here except David, who really had no idea why I was happy but let me hug him anyway.
Anyway, the wedding will be in about two years, once The Boy has finished University
