Man....it rains in Wales

I keep on telling my sisters that I don't feel like I'm in a foreign country on vacation. It's hard to when you have Laurie cooking for you, taking you around and when you are hanging out at her residence. It's kind of nice, not eating out for every single meal, not depending on maps to get around, figuring out transit systems and getting lost. It's very chill in Aberystwyth, and relaxed.
I've never seen soooo much rain before in my life. I've been to London, Ireland and Scotland, but I've never ever been somewhere where it shits rain non-stop all day/night like this. They actually say its "shitting rain" all day. We took the bus down to the town (because it was shitty rain!). We spent the day walking around in the rain, to and from stores looking for rain boots and rain jackets. It's suppose to rain here and in London for the next week, and seeing as we are in the UK until next Sunday,we gave in and bought some gear since everything we wore today was soaked. All three of us bought jackets and Les and I got Welly's. UK sizes are much bigger then US sizes, and the smallest size we could find was an 8, which was 4 sizes too big for Candice. She ended up buying the cutest KIDS jacket! Lol. It fit perfectly.
We went grocery shopping and bought our turkey and fixings for Christmas dinner. Ate, lunch/brunch at a pub called Salt. British meat pies are amazing. I don't think I could eat enough meat pies....EVER!!!!! We picked up some little cakes at a bakery, got a stock of flake bars and a box of tea. I am enjoying Twinings tea, but its not David's! I miss read my lips already!
We pulled names for our Kris Kringle today. Tomorrow we are going to town to hit up the £ shop and pic up some KK gifts. Hopefully, the rain won't be so intense tmrw... I don't think I could ever get used to downpours all the time.
