We made it to Christchurch on Wednesday. Discovered I needed to purchase a map…. I’ve been away long enough that although I can proabably still feel my way around the city, it will use less fuel if I actually know where I need to go! LOL
Hubby was to be dropped off at Rangi Ruru hostel as that was where the band was staying. Now, in my time down here, I’ve driven past the school any number of times. Yet I had in my brain it was more towards upper Riccarton. Turns out that was Middleton Grange school I was thinking of… and Rangi Ruru is still in Merivale where it has always been. See, I needed a map. Just to remind me. 😆
The first night we stayed in what I am convinced has probably featured in a few axe murderer movies. Very dodgy…. so thankfully the sister let us stay for dinner so that all we had to do was go and sleep there (after checking under the beds!!). Breakfast was at Mcd’s…. I really wanted to bet out of there fast! Then our main place was still being serviced so we had some time to kill first. We ended up at Riccarton mall and catching Kung Fu panda! Fun!!!
Tonight the Mr’s are off to have a sleepover at their cousins so I get a night to go do something on my own. Yippee! I’m going over to Tanya Leigh’s for one of her StampinScrap crops. Best thing about this is I have no photos as yet (altough I have called in at a shop and grabbed some papers 😆 ) No really, the best thing about this plan is I actually get to meet Tanya, and now Vicky too… awesome!!! I think Mrs Frizz’s sister is also going to be there… so look out Michelle… I might come away with some dirt!! 😆
Right, my time is up on the motel’s pc… so catch you all again soon!
