Out done

I thought I had big news this weekend - but no, my own mother completely and utterly outdid me by getting engaged :O! I'm very happy for her actually - although very surprised. She's not been seeing the lucky man for very long (only a few months) so this is all very quick. I've not even met him yet (should be fixing that in May).

Does anyone know what normal etiquette is for informing the ex-husband (i.e. my dad)? I'm trying to decide if I should tell him or wait for the extended family grapevine to do its work?

I think I'll tell him. No idea how he'll react (he is married tho - has been for nearly 10 years).

Oh my....

you should probably tell him... it's not as if it's something you had any control over anyways.

I definitely think it better that he hear it from you.

I thought so - and told him! As I expected, no worries, just a bit of a surprise!

It was a difficult thing just to slip into casual conversation tho!
