I think of her as a Montgomeryshire girl, even though I believe she was from Maesteg. And I like to see Montgomeryshire people be happy and fulfilled. So I was pleased to read that Sian Lloyd, ITV's weathergirl is engaged to be married, and very much in love by the sounds of things. These are her quotes from today's Mail on Sunday.
"I feel like the luckiest person alive. We were in Kenya, in the Amboseli National Park, and we went for a drive to see Mt. Kilimanjaro. We went for a walk up the hill, and Jonathon just held me very tightly and said "will you marry me". As he said it, the cloud lifted from Mount Kilimanjaro. It was beautiful. I just burst into tears. It was so moving. I just couldn't help it"
I can't remember what Mrs D and I said to each other, but I don't think it was anything like as romantic as that. However, its a pity that Jonathon Ashman didn't make his proposal in Wales. The weather's been a pig over the last few days that I could have done with the clouds lifting over Montgomeryshire. This blog wishes Sian and Jonathon many decades of wedded bliss. There have been rumours that they are thinking of settling down in Montgomeryshire. Everything should be OK this time, because Sian also told the MoS that she had learned loads from a previous relationship - mainly that she would never make that sort of mistake again. She added for good measure that she had experienced 'a lucky escape' when this previous relationship broke up - and that things would be better this time because 'Jonathon is an adult!' Wow. She's not a Montgomeryshire girl to be crossed.
