It’s the end of the summer as far as I can tell…

Hey kids

Once again almost a month has gone by without me getting round to updating this beast. It is hot again (we had a weird summer that was hot at the beginning, cool in the middle, and is now trying to be hot again for the last few days) and there is not all that much to do right now.

Well, there is lots of stuff that has to be done fairly soon, but this office is a terrible place to try to concentrate, especially on stuff that could be done next week instead.

I’m taking tomorrow off and going for a drive with Chiho to celebrate my birthday. Feels weird having another birthday, I had pretty much forgotten about it until Chiho brought it up. Strange how something that was so important and exciting before can become so commonplace and unimportant!

So, the next time I do this I will be 29 🙂


Hot hot hot

Okay, I give up. We have the air-conditioning on in the living room now, and I’m heading for my fourth shower of the day. Ugh.


Why hello there!

Okay, so it’s been a while. Allright, it’s been more than a while. In my defence, I have been busy recently.

The university classes effectively killed two of my days off (Monday and Sunday -for the classes themselves and preparation respectively) and then to put the icing on the cake I also got a corporate class on Monday evenings.

So the teaching has been taking over my life somewhat.

In other news, it is HOT in Sendai at the moment. Summer started three days ago, but it seems like it is trying to make up for lost time. Strangely it doesn’t seem to bother me as much as it has in the past, and I am trying for a no air-conditioning policy at home (you adjust to the weather quicker if you are exposed to it).

Have the weekend off next week so very much looking forward to that. Wooh!
