Friday. I pick the kids up from the in-laws, along with Rach. We have a birthday party tomorrow, and I decide we’re better off stopping at the shops on the way home to buy a present, than rushing it before the party tomorrow. We reckon we might pick up Arrival too, but in the ongoing conspiracy to prevent us from ever owning a copy of Arrival we find that JB Hifi closes earlier than almost literally any other shop in the centre. Slight exaggeration there: most of the other shops are also closing. But the slight still burns!

Luckily Big W is still open. We grab some suitable presentage from Big W before heading home for another relaxing Fridate.
