Our last minute Christmas shopping took place in Chester with one of Stuart’s friends and his mum, luckily Stuart was able to catch up with another of his friends in his lunch break and I was also able to catch up with one of my best friends while we were there As a result I was very happy, I also met his other half who is lovely and gorgeous! During our wander round Chester, while Stuart and co were buying presents for me, we had a good chat and I’m very proud that he’s pulled himself together and is finally happy because he deserves to be.
In the run up to Christmas we were entirely neutral and come Christmas day there was no change despite a nice night out on Christmas eve with our friends. We didn’t get to bed ’til about 3am if not later and had to be at Stuart’s parents for 7am so we were both shattered which didn’t help and I was missing my Dad more than usual this Christmas, although I have no idea why. Christmas day was, of course, followed by Boxing day which Stuart, his brother and I spent firstly shopping in Cheshire Oaks and then at his Nan’s, despite her being on holiday! We got to play on the wii with his cousins and also playing monopoly with one of the kids, she’s only 8 so hadn’t quite got the hang of business, despite that fact she did actually beat us!
This leads us to today which has been fabulous! We went to the 1st birthday of our friend’s child and it was great, he is such a little charmer and so beautiful. It was good to catch up with his parents too because we hadn’t seen them since their wedding over a year ago and therefore had only seen baby Ethan as a bump! On the return home Stuart picked up two of his friends to play on Rock Band, which he got for Christmas along with Guitar Hero Metallica and Beatles Rock Band, and they have now been happily occupied for a good 5 hours “rocking out”! Sadly they have made me promise not to put videos of them up, but it has been very amusing! All in all a fantastic day!
