Another year older and hopefully wiser. Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes, presents and messages (even those reminding me that 40 is just around the corner). It was great to speak to family on skype and catch up on the news back home. It was a work day so not much to do other than treat myself to a nice bit of meat and a beer (Bill you were on the money!). Aiko was in Tokyo on Monday and splashed out on a really nice cake to top things off.
Hopefully this year will be a little more settled than the last 12 months and bring some pleasant surprises.
