I had a lovely day yesterday, Ebi-kun had his first full day at yochien so I headed into town, got myself some new trainers, nice silver and pink ones! It did take me an age to decide, I didn't really want ones with laes because I am forever taking my shoes on and off here and doing laces everytime will drive me nuts, the ones I found are slip on. Then I wandered around the shops, no one moaning or demanding to go to the toy store. No awkward toilet breaks, I could pee when I wanted to pee. I had a lovely relaxing coffee and sandwich at Starbucks, went to Uniqlo and even tried a few things on since I had no one complaining they are bored. It is a new found freedom :o)

I spotted this in the craft store, made me giggle, the picture isn't great but I will never bore of living in Japan unless they get the hang of the English language!

Ebi-kun had a great day, he had curry rice, apple and something lemony for his lunch and most amazingly he wasn't the last to finish, I can't believe there is someone who eats slower than him LOL.
Today, I have some sewing planned, a new top for me, a holder to keep all Ebi-kuns bits in one place in the car, a couple of little bags and maybe some new place mats if I have the time...


  1. LOL That is too funny!
    Thanks for making me laugh this evening!
    I love your blog so much!


  2. Hah - little prick. Hee hee :) I can't wait for September to come around and for Tara to be in school from 9am until 3.20pm. Bliss!!

  3. I love the "pee when I wanted to pee" comment! I'm longing for the day when I can shut the door whilst I'm on the toilet!

  4. All that preparation for yochien and I am so glad he is enjoying it...

    and that litle pack cracked me up!

  5. Hello ~I've just strolled in for my first visit...I've enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts. You've got so many wonderful ideas. Your blog is so beautifully inviting.
    You are delightful!
    I adore spring flowers and I know Japan has beautiful blossoms!

    As spring approaches I'm looking forward to applying the inspirational palette of colors into a few DIY projects, with a little baking/cooking in between.
    Don't you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
    It's definitely invigorating.
    I will come by your charming blog again.
    Come by for a visit. Your company would be nice.

    Sweet wishes,


Thank you!
