The air is filled with romance!

When I offered to write a post for our blog I was scratching my head for a subject matter when …….

Yesterday, Clarence House (Prince Charles' residence and office) made an official announcement, Prince William and Kate Middleton had become engaged….. and …… William had given his mother’s engagement ring which was very special to him, and wanted to share it with his ‘someone’ very special. image He said, "It is my way of making sure my mother didn't miss out on the day and the excitement and the fact that we're going to spend the rest of our lives together."  Aaaaah.

During these days of stories of hardship and austerity it is so wonderful to have good news and something lovely to look forward to!  Well, I am a romantic at heart after all.

It is amazing how a story such as this spreads across the world to quickly!  Perhaps it might have something to do with who William is and his family history?  Would the media etc have the same interest otherwise?  Mind you, it is a royal story, we all like to dream and imagine.  So, let’s just wallow and then we can get on with our lives.

Talking about getting on with our lives, following on loosely in the theme of blue which is the colour of the sapphire in the ring, happiness and celebrations take a look at the following examples of the amazing talent that can be found in the BBEST team.
