For no reason at all

I was in the kitchen today, watching a movie doing my folding in my tracky dacks....
Stu had been away at Tamworth all morning, then flew in and out again.. as he does all day with his business.
Then he came home again and came to give me a cuddle.
His pocket felt lumpy so i said, is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me??
He said, "Why dont you have a look"
So I pulled out this little wrapped parcel...
Ok, is this for me?
He said, yes just open it....
Why?
Just open it....
So I did and i cried....
I couldnt believe my eyes....

In 1999 sometime, 2000 maybe, i was packing up the house for the thrid time moving yet again and lost the diamond from my engagement ring...
As like most couples when they are youg, my engagement ring was lovely, but only small and cost a fortune on storemans wages, so to replace the diamond was going to cost more than the ring was worth. SO we put a cubic zerconia in it and Stu said i will buy you another one when i have some money.....
Of course, i didnt think that would happen for ages yet as we are just coming out of a drought and things are still tight with paying off debts and all....
So i was speachless to see this... and for no reason, he just did it.....
I do have a very romantic husband dont i?
