I've been back at work this week after enjoying a rather low-key (apart from the Haka) week off for 'OBON'. Mum, do you like the tatt??? Don't stress, it was only drawn on. What do you think though? Seriously? let me know with a comment below. (English/Japanese ok)
Testing began for the second term's curriculum at school for the elementary aged kids with pretty satisfying results. We still have a few things to fine tune with regard to some of the testing materials, but it's been a progression from the first lot a couple of months back. And, as a result, the week has flown by!!!
I got home last night and there was a postcard from mum in the post!!!! I hadn't heard from her in awhile so was beginning to wonder if she had disappeared off the face of the earth!!
She's just returned from flitting around the world and despite 50 degree temps in Dubai it sounds like she really enjoyed herself, especially on the cruise. Wish i could have joined her and Aunty Val!! That lady knows how to PARTY!!!!!!
There are still lots of people at the beach enjoying the last week of official school summer holidays. Check Aiko's blog for more pics of the crowded beach!
So far I've managed to stay outta trouble and avoid any crashes with beginners, kooks and rude 'drop-in' Tokyo surfers. I may just sit it out today (Sunday) to keep that track record in tact. (hahahahaha)
Besides, there is swell forecast that should start filling in tomorrow from another typhoon. Yeeeaaahhhh!! Bring it on! Fingers are crossed for some decent size, as the bigger it is the safer it is....less people :)
