Jen, Caz and I set off for a few hours shopping stopping at the famous ‘Cookie time’ on the way to look around the factory shop… much to the dislike of the sales woman. Ha, if looks could kill!
We shopped close to Christchurch, picking up a few last-minute presents for people and a few pieces of holiday clothes. Pre-Christmas sales meant there were some amazing bargains!
Jenny and Caz dropped me off at the airport at 5ish and I waited for Stuart’s flight to get in
We reach Stu’s mum’s house where he’ll be staying over Christmas. She’s so lovely, greeting me with a big hug and welcoming me to her home. We head in and get some dinner and ice cream. It’s nice to meet Stu’s mum and get to know her. She’s been working teaching Art locally, so really interesting to talk to. Plus she works with a Welsh guy, so I teach her some Welsh phrases to shock him with! My explanation of pronunciation is pretty bad though. I feel for any Welsh teacher teaching third language! We all head off for bed. Stu and I plan to go out shopping in Christchurch after the dentist tomorrow, it’s so nice to get some more stolen time with him, baring in mind I wasn’t supposed to see him until Boxing day and I’ve seen him twice now!
