I love Cassie, and we want to be together, and so we’re getting married!

We just told Cassie’s family, and we’re enjoying a glass of fizz.

It’s been a long time coming, despite the fact we’ve only been living  together for just under a year. It wasn’t necessarily a spontaneous thing – I didn’t surprise her with a trip to Tiffany in New York on New Year’s Day, or reveal a printed t-shirt stenciled with ‘the question’ while dining in Pizza Hut, or go down on one knee over the Thames (people I know did all of these). It was a joint decision, which was the logical next step.

But that doesn’t diminish how happy I feel right now.

More news as it appears!
