N ick called to tell me the news just before New Year’s, only weeks after we got back to Denmark.

He proposed, and she said yes. I’m happy for them, of course, really happy. Nick has found the person he wants to share the rest of his life with! Selfishly I’m filled with dread at the thought of the trip, so I hope it will be a long engagement.

This production is made by me, Sophie Harper, in partnership with Wondery. I’m supported by generous listeners. Editorial support from Michelle Webster.
