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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...
