Jenna’s part­ner ploughed the per­fect pro­posal FIELD OF DREAMS

Pick Me Up! - - REAL-LIFE -

it wasn't the most tempt­ing in­vi­ta­tion. 'Come and meet me at the farm af­ter work,' Tom, my boyfriend of 10 years, said one af­ter­noon in Septem­ber. 'I want to show you some new ma­chin­ery I've bought.'

I'd grown up on the farm in Rack­en­ford.

But quite what Tom wanted to show me, I didn't know.

I wasn't sure I cared ei­ther, felt an­noyed he'd spent money

when we were sav­ing for an ex­ten­sion.

But Tom, 39, sounded stressed, so I met him there and was ush­ered into his truck.

‘Close your eyes. And no peek­ing!’ he said.

I rolled my eyes shut. What's so ex­cit­ing about this flam­ing new ma­chine? As we bumped down a track through some woods I was los­ing my pa­tience. ‘Where are you tak­ing me?’ I huffed. Wear­ing smart work clothes and no wellies, I re­fused to get out. In­sist­ing I kept my eyes shut, Tom lifted me out of the car and over a gate. ‘Now open your eyes!' he said. And there it was: the words Marry Me had been ploughed into a field.

Gasp­ing, I turned to find Tom on one knee hold­ing a box.

I leapt into his arms. 'Yes!' I beamed. It turns out Tom had spent four and a half hours plough­ing the pro­posal in Dad's field.

We’re get­ting mar­ried next May. Who knows if Tom has any more sur­prises in store?

He’ll re­ally have to do some­thing mag­i­cal to top that one!

Jenna Stimp­son, 37, East An­stey, Devon

Our big day is next year

A bit corny? No, I loved it!
