"Look!... I come bearing fruit" HA HA HA.... and she did!
This was yesterday just after Chris D arrived from Palmerston North.... she was really happy to get here.
TODAY: I do believe we will go..... SHOPPING!!!! For a change you understand! lol
WELL, I do have to show me girlfriend around don't I??? She's DYING to see the shops in Auckland... REALLY.
Poor Stew is slaving away at work again, but I do expect him home fairly early today.
This evening we are going into the City to meet my niece Shelley and her daughter Ashley and spending the night with them, shall hopefully see in the New Year with them too. Shelley is a nurse working in Melbourne and is here on holiday... they are going home on the 2nd.
