It's a Wrap

Well, the gifts for those at home are nearly all wrapped and some are even chosen for the Canterbury house.

It is too early to be excited about wrapping presents!

Only four weekends to go, fairly sure that the time will pass quickly for us both.

Diane has a trip to Dunedin planned for Alice's graduation as a doctor (after six years of hard work and study)
Stephanie has a final trip planned to visit Stratford to collect Christmas presents and to do the final Christmas online shopping. What did we do before the power of the online shop??

We are still watching the weather and although snow would be nice, we are driving so don't really want too much of it.

Bags Packed

This is just a short note to keep you up to date with the excitement levels!!!
Well it is only six weeks to go and we will be on the road to the airport.
We could say that our bags are packed but really we are just looking at what clothes we need to take, washing them and folding them nicely, just like our mothers taught us. 
Diane has packed her winter pj’s and Stephanie has got trousers under control. The number of bags is sorted so we have space for shopping and a visit from Santa Claus as well.
