I have been looking forward to this weekend all week long.
All going well we will be visiting Teddy at his new home this weekend, maybe even today.
I have to ring Gayle and tee it up.
It is going to be interesting to see how Teddy reacts to us after not seeing us for two weeks!
I hope he doesn't go nuts, or do the opposite and ignore us!
I'm still toying with the idea of taking Coco with us. She is missing him too.
It's grocery shopping weekend too. Friggin ya.
But a necessary evil.
I also want to get over to Albany to meet up with Felicity, who is a blogger friend from Christchurch.
She's up this way for a week's holiday.
It will be lovely to see her again.
I made these yesterday:
OK... off to make a start on the day... catch ya later.
So! I'm having a piddle (yep!) and I decide to ring my girlfriend Sandra, cos I have two missed calls on me phone from her this morning!
And she answers and says... "Open your door, I'm outside!"... OMG!
I like, VERY quickly finish me piddle and race to the door.
ABOVE: They are up here for a family wedding.
ABOVE: I hope Tallulah isn't hyper later on, she LOVED Neil's coffee!
It was awesome to see them, and it's made me very keen to jump on a plane and go see them all down in Palmy again. So... I shall probably be down before Christmas girls! I can also catch up with Mike and Joyce hopefully.
Right, now that our visitors have left, Stew and I will go and do the grocery shopping.
We are visiting Gayle, Teddy and family later on this afternoon too. Exciting!
Yaaa, shit job done. Groceries bought and put away. We are now grabbing a quick lunch before heading out to see Teddy and his family.
Our visit to Teddy's home went really well... Ted was happy to see his sister Coco, and us too I'm sure.
Riley didn't like Coco AT ALL, so he had to stay in the bedroom sadly.
ABOVE: Jenna with Peppa, Coco's daughter.
ABOVE: Coco and Peppa sniffing, Peppa wasn't that fussed on her mother I must say! I don't think they remember each other.
ABOVE: Griffin with Teddy and Coco. Just like old times. So darn cute.
Gayle has all her Christmas decorations up.... I should get our's put up soon I suppose, but I think I'll leave it to the family this year.
ABOVE: The blokes. Stew and Coco and Shane and Teddy. Teddy sure looks like he knows and loves his home already. I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with the fact he's spoilt rotten!
ABOVE: He looks AWESOME! And happy, and that is the best thing ever.
ABOVE: "NO Shane, you cannot have Coco too!"
I"m sure that little tart would have stayed there too.
ABOVE: We needed more dog food, so on our way home we stopped at Animates and got food.... and a new bed for the girls. It's so pretty, and they already like it.
Well... a most excellent day I must say! First a visit from one of my very best friends, then visiting Teddy and family. Just neat.
End of Day: going to bed really happy.
