Ioee and I arrived home at 10ish, and feeling pretty sorry for ourselves, went back to sleep whilst Mum, Helen and Jenny went to a café in Methven which Jenny told us about the other day. It sounds intriguing, a junk/ vintage shop come café hosted by an eccentric lady with a flair for homemade cakes and socialising. Unfortunately my brains not up to it and we have plans to go into Christchurch tonight. After a couple of hours sleep, a shower and a new dress, I was good to go again. Ioan, Helen and I have booked ourselves into a backpackers, Charlie B’s, in Christchurch tonight so we can go out in the city. It’s a pretty good place, but we wandered round and none of the residents were up for a ‘Yarn’ (I’m getting the lingo now!). We went out about 11ish and went bar hopping for a few hours, playing pool and dancing (not simultaneously). The locals are really friendly here, happy to chat about anything especially when they hear the British accent! We all had a great night, but Ioee’s introduction to a kiwi energy drink ‘Mother’ meant I didn’t sleep a wink! Dangerous drink!
