Our favourite royal tourists have had a busy day. They went to Christchurch, which is rebuilding after devastating earthquakes of a couple of years ago. That is why the Duchess wore this red and black suit, as they are Canterbury colours. They were good sorts, taking part in a kids cricket match in their suits (and her high heels), and still smiling greatly. We hope they have enjoyed themselves, we have had a great time having them here, and if the British don't want them, they could move down here!!
There is a dinner tonight with our prime minister and his family, a rest day tomorrow, then Wednesday they will go to the police college before heading over to Australia.
In the meantime back at Chez Q business as usual. Mum is on her 4th night of call although she was lucky and got some sleep the past two nights. She might be lucky tonight. She has also decided that she will not be eating any chocolate between now and Easter Sunday, just in case the Easter bunny leaves her a treat. She is not a big chocolate eater, but does usually nibble on a little bit each evening. So she is going to leave it alone for 6 days!!! Anyone keen to join her?
