Monday - Hot and Sunny
A good day.
I spent the last few days in Tsukuba at the annual AFWJ Convention. It was marvellous and I really enjoyed myself a lot. I was in the company of roughly 150 other foreign wives and had a lovely, life-affirming, “you aren’t an idiot for marrying a Japanese person” kind of time!
I left Tsukuba yesterday and made good time to Niigata. In Niigata last night I went out for dinner and bought some books too. I ended up crashing in bed at before 1am which is rare!
Today I woke up early, watched Castle in my Hotel room and after a bit checked out. I asked the hotel to keep my bag and then I went out. I did a little shopping, I did a little eating and drinking and a lot of reading too. It was rather fun! I probably spent too much but I enjoyed myself.
I was able to pick up my bags from the hotel and I caught the train handily. I had been most worried that I’d miss it as I had to walk to the train station a little faster than I had planned. Still, I made it.
When I arrived in Tsuruoka, F was nowhere to be seen. I phoned and apparently he was running late. He did come and pick me up within a couple of minutes so believe him!
We had a cheerful dinner in Cocos and then bought some groceries. I’ll be cooking tomorrow night, so be warned Japan.
We came home and I tried to catch up on my Facebooking. I don’t think I’m quite there yet.
However, I am yawning up a storm and I am very tired, so I think I’ll just end this and get some sleep. Talk to you later. Until tomorrow….
