Proposal Of The Week

If you are going to make a proposal of marriage to your beloved, you need to put a lot of thought into it to make it a truly memorable occasion. But perhaps not too much thought, as this cautionary tale shows.

Albert Ndreu decided that he would create a truly romantic ambience for popping the big question by lighting hundreds of tea light candles, inflating roughly 60 balloons, and putting a nice bottle of plonk on chill. According to South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, he then left his flat to pick up his girlfriend, Valerija Madevic, from work.

Unfortunately, by the time the couple got back to the flat, they found it engulfed in flames.

Still, a dousing from the fire brigade did not put too much of a dampener on proceedings as the girlfriend accepted the proposal. As well as planning a wedding, I suppose they will have to find somewhere to live.

As William Shakespeare wrote in A Midsummer’s Night Dream, the course of true love never did run smooth.
