Well, I was going to update for Christmas anyway, posting from Peterborough where John and I are spending the holiday with his parents and family. And it is a lovely Christmas so far, with mince pies and mulled wine and in about a half hour some caroling in the town Green.
But more critically than that is that tonight John suggested we go for a walk, and as is sometimes our habit we went to dark spot away from the light pollution to see the stars. And after we spotted the ISS whirling past and the crescent moon with its very clear penumbra he got down on one knee and put a lovely ring (with a rocket ship engraved on it) on my finger.
So that happened :)
