I got a very special Christmas present...

I am now very happily engaged to my beloved Andrew.

He got up very early this morning to wrap my 'big Christmas present' which he kept saying might die if he wrapped it too early... I got up and he was telling me to open this big box which was wrapped in newspaper and set on more newspaper.
I refused "No, we have to have breakfast first, then we all open presents together"
Thankfully, Mum was there with "No, you can open this one now, we're a bit worried about it"
I didn't really think he'd bought me a pet, but you never know with him...
So I pulled off the paper "Lift the box too. I went to all the trouble to wrap it."
So I picked it up, and underneath was this

When I am grown up I will understand how beautiful it feels to administrate my life effectively.
Until then I will continue to torch all correspondence that bores me and to dance naked over the remnants of its still glowing embers.

I have joked about the lack of a question mark meaning it was an order instead of a question, but I only thought about that later. I gave him a big kiss and said "Of course"
As it turns out, he's told basically everyone he's talked to in the last few weeks (and has carried the ring with him, for fear I'd find it elsewhere!) His family pretended not to know, but since I knew they did, I said nothing and they had to draw attention to it before congratulating us. My (extended) family didn't bother with such pretence - as soon as we arrived, we were congratulated. My cousin had bought us flowers and my aunt already had an engagement present!
