Day 87 of 365: Boxing Day
If by "open longer" they mean 6 or 7 o'clock PM!! We spent roughly two hours here at Merry Hill today because Matt wanted an Xbox game, which had been reduced to £8 and I wanted to pick up a Christmas ornament for 2008. We thought we would start a tradition of purchasing a new ornament for every year we are together.
Unfortunately, all the card shops were shut, being as it was a bank holiday. Fortunately for Matt, this led to us making a cameo at each and every games shop to "just see if they had one more thing." We didn't find whatever that was either.
We settled for coming back tomorrow when everything would be open. Then we headed to Em & Daz's for a night of Lips and Scene It.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
