Wednesday 10th August 2011…….I am talking Newfie already!!

Cannot believe I slept in till 9.15am this morning!!!!  Jude and Rick and left already for work but the night before they  gave me a key for the house and told me to help myself to anything!!!

So kind….after breakfast I got ready and drove about 30km to Costco where I stocked up on groceries because when I leave here on Friday I shall be in the outback a little so will make sure my freezer is full and a well stocked fridge.

I then went down town St.John's for a while and it is quite a small down town core took a few photos

I call Rick the money man he has a sense of humour like me and he is keeping a tally of everything I use or eat to bill me when I leave he thinks I am leaving on Friday but I will sneak out in the middle of the night to avoid paying!!!

We sat around and talked again and it was just a very pleasant evening…….they are so friendly so kind and I feel so lucky!!!!!

So now I speak English, Zen Spanish and a few words of Newfie!!!!!
