october memories and november wish list

I’m a bit late to the party on this one but I’ll keep it short.

october memories

I went to Sumi-Bio with my friend for lunch – don’t let the name put you off (sounds like the sort of place they might do experiments on you).  They cater for vegans, vegetarians, meat-eaters, everyone (maybe)!  It was really nice – I had a mixed veg set/BIO野菜(ビオやさい) 5種盛り.

Then we went to Tully’s and my friend had not a clue what I was on about when I said ‘Tully’s’ in my English accent. タリーズ in Japanese, obviously.  We had a similar problem with Mister Donut where she thought I was talking about an actual person because I didn’t say ミスド.  Anyway, at Tally’s we had the Halloween drink and it was sweet!  It was a pumpkin (but let’s be honest, sugar) concoction with a little biscuit.  I wanted the pumpkin one but it was a no go.

Husband and I went to the botanical gardens, see here.

Then we went to Hagi!

After Hagi I said I went to the UK and I did to see…Weezer!! I went to Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and then London. Originally I was going to book a flight that got me there for the Leeds gig but luckily I didn’t otherwise I would have missed it due to the typhoon! Instead I ended up going to the London gig which wasn’t planned and was very spontaneous. They were all amazing!

I got poorly again! I am always poorly and was tended to by my mum with honey and lemon.
