    Jeez, after all that expense the ring better be brilliant. Either that or you blew all the cash and it's a £50 jobby from Samuels. Maybe you can ebay the box afterwards, unless a jewellery box with built-in GPS is of much use

      But seriously, many many congrats!

      haha, I have many different sides to me, festival goer, adrenalin junkie, beer drinker, outdoorsy type, geek and cook being the main ones.. this is just a good way to be a bit geeky while working away, buy some new tools and toys which for once are actually needed and with a great end result, plus it keeps me out of the beergardens a bit

        hmm well, I thought about that and I'm going to line the box with felt type material so it can actually be used as a jewellery box (her's currently is some teenage tatty piece of crap) and as EO said, it'll make an interesting conversation starter/memory. Plus, she'll own it so I can't really ask to have it back and stick it on ebay.

        Plus, it's not about the expense of it all, if that was the case I could just stick the ring in a bunch of 50's.

              Adding the backdoor option is always a good idea at this stage.

                  Nice one Chef!

                  I hope it all goes well and I'm sure the effort will be appreciated.

                  Did you use the VBB I mailed you about? Any good?
