Hello there, remember me?
Yes, I am still here, even though I haven't actually been here for a month... Sorry. Is it too late to say Merry Christmas?
Somehow, December turned out to be quite a busy month. Funny that. There was a lot of festive fun which I wanted to share with you, but I just never quite got around to it. This week I will try to post a few Christmas photos, but please don't hold me to it.
At the best of times I find New Year in Japan to be a bit depressing. It's supposed to be the biggest holiday of the year, but nothing happens. There's nothing to look forward to or really enjoy for me. This year was far from the best. Since H's grandfather passed away last year, we didn't send or receive New Year cards, one of the few points of interest of the season. And then, at the end of the year, both H and I got sick. Luckily the boys were basically OK, so we sent K over to stay at H's parents for a couple of days so that we only had to muster enough energy between us to tend to one little boy.
Luckily all of that has passed now, and I feel much happier now that Normal Scheduling has been resumed.
