Mt. Nokogiriyama

Have you been wondering what I did during this year’s Golden Week? Going out of your mind imagining all the amazing things I probably got up to? Well the wait is over! It must be good if it’s taken me this long to get something together, eh?

Well, we went to two places – Yokohama and Mt. Nokogiriyama.  I have no photos of Yokohama, so you can imagine the amazing time we had.  No, that’s not fair, we did have a good time eating our way about and sitting in the park.  I don’t think I would rush back though. ...

loving hut – tokyo, japan

I’ve realised recently that I have ridiculously long arms, like an orangutan (I’m getting a red line under this word and I don’t know why) so I had to cut them out of the photo. They are too distracting.

Anyway, enough about me (it never is) and more about the food. I went to Loving Hut in Jimbocho with my husband. We didn’t go for the lunchtime buffet, but I think we would next time, we went for dinner instead. I think it’s only open on Saturdays, at select times, so do check that it will be open if you ...

pancakes at accueil

I went to Accueil in Ebisu for pancakes.  I had the banana and caramel sauce pancakes with vanilla ice cream, see above.  It was really nice and it was huge!  Me being the greedy sod I am at times asked for the regular size.  The waiter explained that size was for two-three people.  So, I’m not quite THAT greedy or brave to still go for that one, so I changed to the half size which I’m bloody glad I did because look at it!  I couldn’t eat it all and I was laughing so much when he brought it out ...

i’m back

I haven’t been anywhere but I haven’t been here either.  Is that because of a lack of motivation?  Laziness?  Boredom?  Lost of enthusiasm for blogging?  I’m not sure of the reason – maybe one of the aforementioned, maybe all of them, maybe none.

So, whatever, what exciting things have I been up to then?  Not much is the answer. I’m sure you were all expecting that as well.

Why am I here now?  There has to be a reason right?  There’s a reason for everything and the reason I present to you now is that I currently can’t sleep so ...

do you ever wonder…?

The photos of the snow are of no relevance to the text, so if it’s a snow story you’re after, turn back now.  I just felt I needed to try and make my words a little less soul destroying.

What you are doing with your life?  I’m sick of that question!  It seems to be everyones favourite thing to ask at the moment.  Everyone defines themselves by the job they do and I just find that so depressing.  More depressing than that though is that I do it as well!  I hate being asked what I do but I invariably ...
