I was so thrilled to be one of the first to go up the Shard last week that I didn't realise I was missing out.

I didn't see a single proposal. (On the plus side, I also missed Boris.)

It's going to be busy up there on 14th. I hope the sun comes out for them.

I like Boris. Mind you he isn't my mayor. Who would turn down an opportunity have a name like Mrs Episcopou?

Maybe she'll keep her own name, Sue. I can't imagine anything I'd hate more than being proposed to in public. Although I have a bigger chance of being hit on the head by a meteorite next time I go up the Shard!
Actually, last time I went on the London Eye the capsule 'hostess' told us that she'd been up with a poor young man whose proposal had been turned down at the top ... and then they'd had to come all the way down again in embarrassed silence! With the 'hostess' feeling a complete gooseberry. (You still get accompanied. Even if you book a private ride.)
