After dinner, the preperations began for peeling grapes. During said preperation I was lead downstairs by Luis in to his private room. It was large and had a computer, a punching bag, a large promotional card for Driv3r, some boxing gloves and a small closet full of games. I had a go at the punching bag. I found it difficult. Thomas blocked attacks from Louis. Then it was time for the grapes. We watched the clock on TV as we ate our grapes. The way it works is when the clock strikes 12 it does 12 bells. On each bell you eat a grape. We then went outside on the front porch to watch the fireworks.
We then played Tower Tension (a.k.a Jenga) and I lost once. Then me and Louis played Guess Who. After a while we went home.

After breakfast, we slowly started to get ready to go to Spain. I had a bath, and got dressed. Then we had lunch. It was so good. Quiche, sausage rolls and salad. And then for dessert, a meringue roll. After some packing up, I met Uncle Alistair´s nephew.
We then headed off to the airport. It was a small and fairly cold airport. At least on the outside it was like that. Inside it was quite busy. We had to wait to go up through the system, and in this period of waiting, me and Thomas had drinks. I had a Diet Coke, Thomas had a hot chocolate. After a bit more waiting we headed up in to the fray. We had to stand around in the lobby and wait for quite some time. But eventually we got through and on to the plane.
The plane ride was very short, but quite comfortable. I fell asleep for most of the flight. When we arrived, we were picked up. We then got to Nona´s house and had dinner of soup and pork and prunes followed by a dessert of cake. Then Thomas lead the cat out of the room with a trail of treats.

Today I woke up at 4:00. That was pretty ridiculous, I know. So as I was awake I read my Calvin and Hobbes book and tried to sleep every now and again. Eventually I did nod off and woke up again at sometime after 8:00, which was a bit better. Thomas told me to lie in for a bit more. I did so and got up about, what I thought was, 10 minutes later. Which was good. So I got up and scrambled down to find Granddad at the kitchen table, reading the paper. I went in to the dining room and turned on the telly (can't quite remember what I watched, all I can think about right now is poor Meat Boy, mayherestinpeace). After a few minutes, we had breakfast which featured cereal. And there was also toast.
Couple of hours after we went shopping. Nanna wanted to go in to a local sports shop, JCB Sports (Yay! Advertising!), to change some Christmas presents. Nanna offered to get me and Thomas something, buuuut there wasn't much we fancied. We then went in to Currys, an electrical gadget shop, to have a look at TVs for Alistair. Whilst we were there we bought a camera for Thomas, which we shall use in Spain. So hopefully the Spain blog posts will have pictures. I also found Super Smash Bros. Brawl (for the Wii), but we weren't sure about getting it because we didn't know if it would work. On the way back, Nanna bought fish and chips for lunch.
After a very tasty lunch, Thomas did some research on the English games on Australian consoles issue and found out that, yes, they would work. Nanna will get it whilst I'm in Spain. There was then a tea of chips, dip and various meats. Then we all relaxed and played Mastermind.
