We checked out from the backpackers for 10a.m. and after a trip to McDonalds that I’d rather never repeat, we got home to a very smart looking mum and Jenny. They’re off to the coast today to a small French colony the other side of Christchurch, and are wearing their ‘Stripes’ in honour of this! We three wee ones were not up to much, so spent the day napping and reading. This evening we went out to Ashburton town to a Speight’s ale house for a meal. When I say we, I mean the whole family too! Dewi, Jenny, Mum, Helen Io, Rhys, Rhys’ girlfriend Kiri and myself. It was really nice to have the whole family together. The meal was lovely too. Pretty reasonable too. I had a pie, this has been a mission since arriving here. The kiwi’s are really big on pies, I can’t quite understand why, but his one was great. When we got in, Dewi passed out straight away, so we all went to bed after a cup of tea. Tomorrow we are thinking of departing the family home to work out way further south.
