I'm getting up bright and early this morning and heading out to the airport to pick up Chris D.  She arrives back in the country from the UK.

I know she's had a fabulous time with her UK family, doing lots of sight seeing, visiting family and even attending one of the Rugby World Cup games.

As she has a 5 hours stop over here in Auckland before her connecting flight to Palmerston North, she's coming here instead of having to sit around in the airport.  Of course I don't mind, it gives me a chance to spend some more time with her.

I got a little bit of sewing done late yesterday:

ABOVE:  Detail that's on the pocket of a little bag I'm making as a Christmas present.  I want to make several little bags.   

Right, that's me for now... I'm off to get me girlfriend.


11.35 am:  and Chris arrived safe and sound... tired to the bone and with a nasty cough and croaky voice.
She had a shower and a cuppa tea and I'm sure felt a tiny bit better.

As I thought, she had a lovely time, but it wasn't long enough.  It's such a long way to go for only 3 weeks, particularly when you have to spend 4 full days travelling just to get there and back.

ABOVE:  Chris got me a gift ... A darling mid-sized Britto Tinkerbell!  She's gorgeous, THANK YOU so much Chris. *smiles*

My Britto collection sure is growing.

5.58 pm:  Stew is cooking dinner, and I've just painted me nails:

ABOVE:  I really like the blue on white look.  But it won't last long.  I need my acrylics back filled really soon, like in the next few days.
I'm loving the false nails this time around, I trim them down so they don't get too long, so I can still type.

Heading into a nice evening, Coronation Street in on and it's getting really interesting again.
I decided NOT to watch it online, I love my Friday/Saturday night fix too much.  *smiles*

End of Day:  well the evening went really nicely. Coro Street was great, then I followed it up with a few programmes I'd taped.  Stew took himself off to bed fairly early as he's getting up at 4am to watch the All Blacks Vs. South Africa in the Rugby World Cup.  I will NOT be getting up.  Stuff that!
I can wait till the morning to find out if we won or not. For sure.
