Actually, you hit on a good idea....buy the happy couple some cement, something they could actually use instead of the poncey union/ ribbon / crap thing......

Just call me an old romantic.....

Engagement

Champagne every time. Just make sure it's a bottle of the proper stuff. Like Veuve Cliquot or Dom Perignon. Only time most people get to drink it, so make sure they invite you along too!

Thanks for all your ideas, I've actually bought them a picture for their wall! I hope they'll like it, this is a big risk I'm taking isnt it? I made them swear they'd be honest with me.

Anyway, I'll have it if they dont like it

I was planning to take a bottle of champers down anyway.

They're from down your way Dickie C, Harrow! A few of us are going to see them this friday and then going clubbin in London on Saturday.... any reccomendations???

Clubbing

Er, no. I'm not the clubbing type, except at the really bad Oxford clubs after I've had so much to drink that my dancing approximates Ze's. Of course, it never reaches those elevated heights...

And I've never been to Harrow, actually. Though I am going to a housewarming in Stockwell this Saturday.

Sorry, that's no help at all, is it?

Ah, Hemel Hempstead. What a delightful place. I am convinced that the opening credits of The Office were filmed there, and not in Slough.

Stockwell's yer sarf Lunnon. Harrow's north.

Yeah, town planning in the 1960s. You gotta love those funky roads.

The one (and thankfully only) time I've been there was on the coach back from Stansted to Oxford. Went through at about 4 am so missed the worst of it.
