For dinner Matthew had a ham sandwich followed by lemon slice. In the afternoon Matthew went to JTF. We set off onto Glebedale Road and we turned right onto City Road where we saw Copeland's Tours MIB 270. At the roundabout we turned right by KFC and we walked down to JTF. Matthew did some shopping and brought me a present for Fathers day which is next weekend. After Matthew had done his shopping we set off back down City Road and we stopped at Lifestyle Express where Matthew brought can of Coke. After we had finished shopping there we crossed over City Road and onto Christchurch Street. We stopped at the Co-operative Food store and Matthew brought a Bottle of dandelion & Burdock.
