Saturday was a pretty busy day, started with taking Ebi-kun to the dentist for a check up - all ok, his teeth are beautiful! He had football practice in the afternoon so we decided to try out a new cafe which was on the way. The Earth Cafe Restrant!
It was a nice little place, friendly staff but the service was slow and they didn't have the excuse of being busy. They did have a corner set up with handmade zakka items for sale.
I love these tiny books, bookmaking is something I want to learn more about, I have been looking at books on the subject but can't decide which would be a good one to start with, if you have any recommendations please let me know.
Lunch arrived, daddy-ebi ordered keema curry, he said it was very good but the portions were very much a ladies lunch size not a strapping bloke size.
After lunch we headed down to the park for football. The previous day had been so hot, record temperatures, 39.4c in Saitama but Saturday was much cooler. I don't always go to the football but because it had cooled down and I had been stuck in the house all week I thought it would be a good chance to catch up with the other moms and do a bit of hand sewing. It wasn't to be, just as the kids started to play the heavens opened, they got soaked, we got soaked, but they carried on regardless.
I had to strip Ebi-kun down and get him changed before he got in the car, on the way home he said he really enjoyed playing in the rain 'it was like playing in a national match like the professional football players do', I am glad he enjoyed it, I wasn't so happy about having to wash his manky strip!
If you haven't done so yet, please remember to vote for Ebi-kuns fabric (he has some tough competition!)
