6 months of 2018 memories and august wish list

Laziness!  Ok, rather than dwell on why no updates of late, let’s move on to actual updates.

6 months of 2018 memories

To continue with my favourite theme, I’m just gonna leave the photos there. No explanation needed.

august wish list

  • carry on reading – I have been reading a lot this year
  • go to a museum – I want to go to the soseki one
  • finish the shirt dress by merchant and mills

fruit parlor fukunaga

For my husband’s birthday/our wedding anniversary we went to Fruit Parlour Fukunaga – you can follow them on Twitter here.  It was delightful!  As you can see, we went greedy!

First up we have a cherry parfait and (large, I think) plate of fresh fruit.

Then the fruit sandwiches which I liked very much. I hadn’t ever had a fruit sandwich before coming to Japan, but now I have delighted upon them, I have become quite fond. You can find them at the supermarkets and conbinis too if you don’t have time to go to a fruit parlour. The ...

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?

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 ...

meanderings

Just meandering out and about. Enjoying the ‘fresh’ air and the sun on our backs.

I’m using photos from two days here and pretending they are one. The jig’s up now though! I’m my own worse enemy, I just sabotaged myself and didn’t even bat an eyelid whilst doing it. Doesn’t it look like autumn in these photos? But it’s not! It’s winter because it’s December. Unbelievable.

So now it’s day two and we had a mission for this day. Our mission was go to Blue Bottle Coffee and Dandelion. It was a pig day and we weren’t (and ...
