So, we have some news! Alex and I got engaged on our six-year (?!) anniversary last month and now, having shared it with the few people it had to be shared with first, are ready to tell you all! So, there it is, we're engaged!

We do know that the wedding/ceremony/tandem-sky-diving vows will happen in June, likely the weekend before or after the weekend of the 12th. It will almost certainly happen in the UK, and we have no idea at the moment whether or not there will be something in the US as well.

We have a lot of behind the scenes stuff - venue, invitations, etc - to figure out in the next month or so, as soon as we figure out a budget. There will be a poll of some sort to see who of you all is available to come over, once we have a date set. We will be sharing information with all of you as and when we decide things!

Whee! Engaged!

Also I am so not "stuck" in China at all! I looked up the price of airfares to the UK and assuming my foray to Japan at the end of this year doesn't completely cripple me financially, I MAY be able to make it. We'll see, though; everything's fluid.

PS you are SO more important than dim sum.

Let's not be too hasty with the dim sum/Lowell comparisons; even for me it's a close call sometimes.

Stepping in from the depths of the past with a hearty omgGRATZ!!!

That is so beyond awesome. I had a sudden flash to the changing of your journal title to Alex's Boyfriend right after Nimbus.

I'm just...so happy for you both. The best now and always &hearts x infinity.

Very very happy for you.

I still have a tonne of stuff if you need any help at all with any sort of planning.

I should really get round to throwing it all away...
