On Xmas Day Santa gave Georgia a certificate for a Girls Day Out with mum including lunch, movies and spending money. Georgia chose yesterday for the big day out! The day started with the girls getting ready - girlie clothes, jewellery, make-up and hair straightening!
We left at lunchtime and went straight to Zarbo in Newmarket for lunch. Georgia had the yummy lasagne and mum had a Thai Chicken Cake. We both had coke to drink as Georgia said it was a special day!
We went into Redcurrent, next door to Zarbo and the first purchase of the day was made - a beautiful hand made leather covered sketch book.
After that we headed up to Two Double Seven and into the newly opened Smiggle shop we'd heard about from Ruth. Georgia chose a 'green theme' and picked out some stationery for school including pencil case, pencils, pens, electric eraser and electric pencil sharpener! She also used the touch screen computer to select a Smiggle "skin" for her iPod Shuffle.
Next we headed off to Sylvia Park for more shopping. We had a look around in Borders and purchased the first Gilda Joyce book and some 39 Clues card packs. There was also a stall making wax hand moulds but we ran out of time to do this before the movie. We stocked up with frozen coke, popcorn, ice cream and lollies (Georia said it was a special day) and hurried in to our prime seats for 'Bedtime Stories'.
We both agree it was a fabulous day and we'd love to do it again soon. Georgia thinks it would be a great thing to do every Christmas!
PS The boys had a nice time at the Auckland Museum visiting Sue the T-Rex so don't feel sorry for them!
