So, I have lots of stories to tell this year! I thougth I would start off with this one though. One that immediately came to mind, 1) with the theme and 2) because we have recently been to see 'The Hobbit'. The Hobbit? Yes, my precious! A ring of course!
So, what did my wonderful husband do? He took me into the Luton Arndale Centre and went wedding ring buying. He said that it was a little embarrassing, buying a wedding ring for someone heavily pregnant (as he too had been brought up with the same views). However, a new wedding ring was found and I wore it until Ben was about 3 months old, when I could finally get my proper ring back on again.
Of course some of you reading this story might think what was the fuss about! After all, having a baby 'out of wedlock' these days is nothing out of the ordinary. Well, let's just say that we are/were old fashioned back then!
