Happy New Year and all that balls. I’m not much of a New Years fan and I don’t do resolutions so it was a fairly quiet evening for me. I went into Fukushima City for dinner and Karaoke with some people then a bar for the actual countdown. The lovely barmen passed out glasses of champagne for everyone but because I was driving I couldn’t have any. I’m not a fan of champagne either but hate missing out on a freebie so I was a little blue about it until they brought me over a champagne glass with ginger ale just for me. Then I was happy.
I’ve been off all week as it’s a national holiday so have been talking it very easy. I went to Sendai for a day of shopping and lunch. We had cow tongue (a speciality there) and a milkshake of soy beans rather than milk. Both were delicious.
I’ve gone for a few walks around town trying to find new routes for a little variety. Read a few books. Watched a few films. I’m fighting off a cold. I got three epic parcels full of crisps, tea and chocolate so I am now full of crisps, tea and chocolate.
It is freezing but thankfully no snow. Back to school on Tuesday.
