Hi guys, had a FANTASTIC weekend. It's going SO well with me and John - I just can't get enough of him! Don't want to pour cold wataer on it but I think he's going to propose soon!! I know I'm so lucky to have met him, and he's so rich too. We went to the most amazing restaurant on Saturday and then he drove me all the way down the coast just for afternoon tea. How lucky am I?! Can't believe it's Monday already though - still, only a few more days till the weekend!! Can't wait!!!! Janet x
