Boxing day outing

We had tickets booked for Kath, Rhiannon and I to go skating this morning. It started to rain as we all began to walk down to City Hall Gardens, but by the time we'd arrived and donned skates, it had stopped, and remained so for the hour of our skating session. We even had a rainbow. It was a delightful experience to share, with lots of photos taken, and hot chocolates drunk afterwards. Then we all made our ways into the city centre to sample the delights of the Boxing Day sale. It is the first time I can ever recall having done this. Normally we head off for a country walk, but apart from Owain Clare and I, none of the others had sampled the delight of our new shopping Shangrila.

It was very busy indeed. I took James for a tour of the technology stores in search of a laptop for him, and be the end of trading we'd obtained an excellent Song Vaio at a decent discount. The rest of the evening was spent setting it up, explaining step by step all the useful features, and getting it to work in the safest, hassle free manner. An enjoyable thing to do with an unquisitive teenager.
