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
  • climb mt fuji (I know)
  • go to the recycle shop and drop my stuff off.

How has your first half of the year been?  How scary ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

2017 memories

It’s the highly anticipated highlights of 2017! Photo-heavy and self-indulgent, reader caution is advised.

january

I embarked on my journey to not buying clothes.  I didn’t know it at the time, but this would result in my new hobby of sewing which I still haven’t really said anything about on here and I apologise for that.  I endeavour to bore you all with it this year.

february

We went to Dominique Ansel Bakery and had the frozen smore and cookie shot. Top tip, don’t bother getting a drink if you go, just get the water.

We went to see the ...
