[Well it is 12:30am over here and I am wide awake. Ordered a large coffee after the ice hockey game forgetting that over here a large basically means a bucket of coffee! If it wasn't so snowy and slippery outside I would probably go for a jog to wear it all off... but anyway!
So the ice hockey game was so much fun! We were sitting in the second row and no one was in front of us so we got some really good views of people being smashed into the glass right in front of us! There were 8 of us there plus little Carter who seemed to absolutely love the atmosphere of the place. She's such a good girl We saw the Saskatoon Blades (that's who we were going for) versus the Prince Albert raiders and it was very cool because we won 9 - 4 which is apparently a ridiculously high scoring game. Had the rules explained to me very well but the play was just so fast that I found it a little bit hard to keep up with what was going on, was an extremely exciting game though! Definitely something I would follow if I lived over here
This morning we had another sleep in (despite not doing much we are all really tired so morning haven't really been starting till at least after 10) and then had cinnamon toast for breakfast which was absolutely delicious! Everything Allison's mum makes is delicious though And then we played killer bunnies which is an extremely confusing board game that I lost in a big way but was really cool and a lot of fun to play with lots of people. Then we went to Wallmart so that we could experience just how large it is! To explain - it's like a Woolworths, plus a Kmart, plus a full Chemist, plus a Pet Store, plus a Bunnings and then there is also a McDonald's and Tm Hortons....... Oh and you can buy air rifles there and ammo for real guns!!!??? Crazy stuff.
Tomorrow is our New Years Eve so in the morning Nick and I are going on a road trip with Ryan to Prince Albert, so that will be cool to get to see another place that we wouldn't have otherwise gone to, and then everyone is going out to supper (dinner), then going ice skating then chilling back home to see in the New Years. Should be pretty fun because all Nigel and Allison's friends and family over here are so nice and making us feel very at home
Hope you guys all have an awesome New Years Eve!!! Looking forward to hearing how you all spent it and what you got up to
Love Claire and Nick
