The Proposal

"We had embarked on our trip for a planned weekend getaway from work, to unfortunately get a screw lodged into our tyre. Unusually, Shaun was reluctant to change the spare, so it took us a few hours to get it replaced - what unfortunate luck! Expecting to stay in a small apartment, Shaun surprised me with a beautiful holiday home overlooking Middleton Beach. After opening some champagne and settling in to watch the sun go down, Shaun encouraged me to look out to the surfers down below. After a few minutes of looking out the balcony without seeing them, I turned around to find Shaun down on one knee asking me to marry him! Turns out, all the paperwork for the ring was actually in with his spare tyre, thinking it would be safe in there!"
