Congratulations.

Early this morning R answered the phone. It was younger son J calling from Somerset in UK, ( above ), where they are staying for the weekend. He had  some very happy news. They were at their favourite garden ( one I blogged about on August 24th ) and they had just got engaged! Yippee. That is fabulous news.      Congratulations!
This lovely garden called Kilver Court. It is in Shepton Mallet, which is near Castle Cary where they ( and we in July ) stay with V's lovely Aunty R. That is so nice that they got engaged there so they can share it with her - she has looked after them both so well while they have lived in UK.

This lock up in the centre of Castle Cary is "The Tank."  Not used to lock drunks up in to dry out any more, but the central feature of this special little place. The news is  special for another reason. This general area is where R's  family came from in  1856.
 As we are having some big worries about another family member it is wonderful to have something to be pleased and very excited about. Well done your 2 - you have made your Mum very happy! ( it also gave me the chance to show you some more of my holiday photos )

Congrats to them!
Now this is serious business - what are you going to wear? No pressure but the family photos taken at this event will last a life time...!
You can look up all the silly 'rules' they make up for weddings, like only the Mother of the Bride can wear purple, if she wears a hat you wear a hat... it goes on.
