That is indeed an engagement ring on Rosie's finger as she looks upwards (I know) into the eyes of her betrothed - Wee John. Really.
I've had a feeling for a little while that this moment may be coming soon (Wee John's sensible jumper is a bit of a giveaway) but I was no less taken aback when the pics arrived earlier today, followed by a phone call.
Indeed, my sense of shock was matched only by Charlotte's state of confusion. Delighted as she was to hear that Uncle John is getting married, she was also curious to know if Auntie Rosie was getting married too. She is also mad keen to find out if Uncle John is planning to wear a dress.
All these questions and many others will be answered in the time ahead.
But for now, we Whites are thrilled to bits for them both.
And I feel a drink is very much in order. Bloody hell.
PS Big thanks to John and Rosie for allowing me tell you all on here.
PPS Bloody hell again.
