Ooooooh …… I’m so excited!!

Rosie and her boyfriend Dan came to visit me at the weekend.  On Sunday Dan had planned a special trip for just the two of them to their very favourite beach in all the world .. Lannacombe…..

Lannacombe Beach

 He asked me to pack a special picnic … and my Great British picnic blanket had its first outing …..

whilst the newfies and I waited excitedly, impatiently and expectantly at home …..

 Because we knew that Dan planned to ask a very special question.  We were certain we knew what Rosie’s answer would be – and we were right! 

Rosie & Dan

Yes, they became engaged on the beach at Lannacombe – so romantic!  And now we are beginning to plan a seaside wedding……

Rosie & Dan

 I’m so happy for them both!

Rosie and her fiance Dan will be back again soon to  start checking out local venues.  Daisy (who simply had to push herself into some of the engagement photos) would love to be a flower-girl, but as we are all of the opinion that she could not be trusted to behave herself on the day, I think this is a definite NO!  But I’m sure she’ll enjoy seeing lots of Rosie during the planning and preparation period as will I …… ooooh … I’m so excited!!


  1. Congratulations to Rosie and Dan. Gone on…..let Daisy be Bridesmaid, and Ben can be ring bearer…….

    Congratulations to the happy couple!! Helen I am sure you have already had your mind whirring with all the preparations and think we will all have to look forward to the continuing story of Rosie and now Dan too. Looking forward to seeing some of the ideas evolve for the monthly delivery. Or perhaps Helen you won’t have time for us and the wedding preparations.

  12. Congratulations to all! Daisy is growing too fast. Please stop feeding her. although, I know from my own English Mastiff that some how their appetite does not seem to match their growth rate or their size. I don’t know how my girl ever grew she was such a fussy eater!
