An early awakening followed by a lazy getting ready for the day. A bit of knitting and breakfast.
Cheron and I went out for a look around the city centre and we went to the pop up Arts and Crafts market,
cheese shop bought a slither of blue cheese, popped into the Art Gallery to look at a Pip and Pop sugar installation
Then we went to the pop up mall through Ballantine’s department store – spraying perfume! Had lunch in a cafe. I had a filo pastry filled with roasted vegetables followed by a ginger slice all washed down with a cup of tea. Cheron had creamy chicken pie and coffee.
Finally we went to see the cardboard cathedral that has been built as a temporary measure while they decided a way forward with the original cathedral.
We collected Castell at 2:15 and we were dropped at the mall for the cinema. We shopped for popcorn and sweets before we went in the cinema to watch Hunt for the Wilder People, a NZ comedy film. It was quite funny apart from the New Zealand references.
When we got out we had about 15 minutes so I bought Castell two hoodies and two games for us to play at Christmas – Bananas ram and Skip-Bo. Cheron collected us and we collected pizza from Spagalimus on the way home.
With the pizza Chris and I shared a bottle of red wine, Castell and Cheron had some cider.
The pizza was followed by millionaires shortbread made by Cherry, both were very good!
Castell, Cheron and I played both games with the boys before they went to bed. Cheron played Tic Attack Toe with Castell and then took him back to the hostel.
I watched another episode of The Bletchley Girls and competed my fifth strip!!!!
