(Ignore my face, no make up because of stupid cold sore and hadn't brushed my hair since I got up lol. I wanted to cut my face out but Kye said that looked stupider)

I got my ballgown for the masquerade ball. It fitted perfectly everywhere except for the top of the arms so with a bit of altering we got it comfortable. I'm thinking i might get a 3 hoop underskirt to hold the skirt part out better.

I'm going to be all in white, my inspiration was the ballroom scene with Sarah in that beautiful white/cream ballgown and Kye's got a black horned mask like Jareths.

We have to watch Labyrinth one night this weekend before the ball, Connar you're going to the ball aren't you, you should come over and watch it too? :)

(Anyone whose tried to text or call me in the last 24 hours, i changed over my direct debit online weeks ago but apparently they take 14 days to process it on O2 so my payment for this month was declined. I've got it sorted now but won't have phone till tomorrow. amethystar we got your card, it's so lovely, I was going to text)

The holiday to Skye was FANTASTIC, utterly relaxing, just what i needed, beautiful and romantic! We got back Saturday but I'm still really tired. I was soooo glad to get back and see the kittys!!

Mum had decorated the entire flat with engagement banner, balloons and left us champagne. They also gave us money and bought us a huge knife set, a picnic set and a brand new hoover, ours was just a cheap one and they got this amazing cyclone one which is so loud, Kye and I like new electronic toys LOL!

Gran, my brother and family friends have given us money as we have all the house stuff we need so along with Mum and Dads we are putting it into an ISA to start our caravan/camper van savings fund! (not sure which we'll get but the caravan looks like the cheapest option for buying and upkeep)

I didn't even know people sent/got engagement cards or presents i thought that was just when they got married. I've been so blown away but what my Mum did with the banners and stuff, how happy Gran is for us and all the cards! I've been emailing Kyes Mum the photos from the holiday and it's such a nice feeling, I feel closer to my family and his because everyone's so happy for us.

The engagement
We found a little rocky/grass down some steps off the left side of Eilean Donan castle which you can see in photos below. Somehow the weather held that day as it rained every other day LOL! We had a wonderful picnic with hot chocolate, strawberries etc. Kye had hidden the ring in a hand painted box of Booja booja truffle organic chocolates which are like the only nice dairy free/wheat free chocolates I've ever found, I'd had a little box before but this was HUGE! When he proposed I cried but said yes of course ..then i took his ring and asked him if he'd marry me too and he cried. It was wonderful :). He also surprised me with a feather fan, nipple tassels and a black rose.

Highlights of the rest of the holiday

I'd say my favourite places on Skye were fairy Glen and Armadale castle.

Fairy Glen is amazing, you don't expect it when you come upon it ...it's like a miniature glen, with tiny hills, trees and lochs, even the ferns look tinier for some reason. If faeries exist they definitely live there! We got hideously diverted on the way home that day but got to drive past the red Cullin and black Cullin hills which are beautiful if a little creepy with their size and colouring. On the way home I decided when we want to have a child in the future we should conceive her/him in fairy Glen so the faeries will bless us and our child shall be beautiful and fairy like which made Kye giggle but I'm totally serious hehe!

Fairy glen on the Isle of Skye

Aramadale castle is quite a ruin but has such a beautiful gothic arch left with amazing gardens and a very good visitor centre, its worth a visit.The visitor centre tells the story of the wars of independence, Bonny princes Charlie and the clans, then it goes onto telling how badly the crofters were treated by the landowners after the breakdown of the clan system when they English took over and traces families who are now in Australia, America etc. back to Skye. The conditions their ancestors lived in to make the long sea voyages for a better life was horrendous and almost made us both cry.

One day we went on a short boat trip under the bridge to an island to view seals. It was an amazing boat with a semi submersible bottom where all the people could go down to view the seashore while the boat was going. Kye loved it and I really enjoyed seeing the seals but i couldn't go downstairs because looking through the glass, the boat moving, motion etc. made me instantly feel like I was going to throw up and gave me spinny vertigo so i stayed on top of the boat the whole time which was mostly OK if a little nauseous at times but worth it. I'd been chatting to the skipper while everyone was downstairs and when they all came back up he made a huge deal telling everyone we were engaged and the whole boat wanted to see my ring, it was so weird but cool!

The cottage was soo lovely, we had an open fire which we lit every evening! My favourite evening a local butcher had given us some mussels from his restaurant supply (as they don't sell them out front normally) and showed us how to cook and beard them, we had the HUGEST meal of fresh mussels out the loch that morning. The butcher was so friendly to us :).

It was very cold the whole time so we took hot drinks in flasks whenever we went, mm hot chocolate, i had ear muffs and a scarf etc. but it was difficult to keep my blood sugar up in the cold, i had to eat tons! The journey up and down wasn't very nice with windy roads, i felt so carsick but it was worth it to get there, i had only 3 what I'd call bad days where I was very weak, dizzy and had to stay in bed but one of those i managed to sleep all day and felt better in the evening so we could get the best pub meal ever at the local pub (mm steak). The other 4 days we got out in the car to visit places, only one of those days out I ended up almost crying cos i couldn't walk anywhere and felt like passing out so we had to come home, really the other days were great and the day at Armadale i managed to walk quite a bit which was such a liberating feeling even if i did feel rough for it the next day, so half and half and I'm thankful for any good days :).

But i really don't remember the holiday for the cold, my health good or bad or the fantastic places we visited ..I remember this holiday for the laughter, god we laughed at everything, i mean we had sooooooooo much fun and it was so romantic and he's my best friend ever *giggles*! I feel so lucky i get to marry my best friend and that he's so handsome, kind and wonderful, i love him soo much and I only hope I can always make him happy forever.

I love when cats yawn, chew their paws, lay down in funny positions and when they look confused at mirrors!

Maia being cute :)

[mood - amused] I've been telling a few people about this so here are the photos! John was here while Kye was building part of it and I know you're dying to see Mr Spider finished LOL!

The kittys thought it was getting crowded for places to nap in the lounge so Kye built them this 7 foot cat castle complete with sleeping areas on top of and inside the castle, a dungeon bed area and blue bed area (to look like water hehe).

It also features 4 turrets up into the clouds for vantage points and has it's very own Mr spider, Miss ladybug and Fred the fish. I made the toys from pom pom designs on www.dadcando.com :) and we got the rope from B and Q.

I'm planning to make some stars to hang off the clouds :). All the carpet is new and most of it was donated from kind people on freecycle! The whole thing used ALOT of staples.

more photos of it being made etcCollapse )

Our valentines is being officially celebrated along with Kye's birthday in a few weeks when we will be spending a long weekend at a lodge beside Loch Lomond with it's own sauna and whirlpool bath! Whoo!

He got me Maia for Valentines and I'm enjoying our little family so much, happy domestic bliss since Kye and I unpacked his last moving in box this weekend *phew*. I'm looking forward to alot of wonderful things being with Kye this year and I have so many happy memories, I am happier than I've ever been on Valentines day before. He's a wonderful man.

I'm not sure how romantic today can be with me suffering from evil cystitis that won't go away for 10 days now (meaning no naughtiness, but I'm sure that can be more than made up for when we go away on holiday hehe) but we have sushi and lots of cuddles planned and we are permanently smitten and addicted to playing with Maia!

Happy valentines purrs to all my friends :)

Kye is my hero :) in everything.

He has a wonderful knee to sit on in the garden when I'm too scared to sit on the bench because of spiders, he makes the best picnics on the beach complete with a full picnic set, he makes me laugh all the time at everything, he watches 24 with me and makes me smile saying it's all so unbelievable, hehe, which it really is and he makes a fallen angel costume look sexy!

This past month when I've been ill with sinusitis he's bought me the most gorgeous fairy notebook to write happy things in :), brought round the work projector so I could have BIG movies to watch, made me lemsip, took a day off work to look after me and even though he didn't want me this far away he borrowed a car to bring me back to my parents so I can rest up :) and is even feeding my kitty for me!

I miss him alot as I've hardly spent a night away from him the past month, but he is my hero and I will go to sleep thinking that :) ...and how he must've looked in a dragon costume tonight, hehe. I wish I'd been there with him tonight, i hate being ill and missing things we want to do together ..but distance and time pass, how he makes me feel won't pass, i love him. :)
