I'm going to continue to title these posts 'My Week', even though
I'm too lazy not enough exciting stuff happens for me to post every week. This really is a random collection!
I had to make this scary and impossible craft, with 12 children, 1 roll of tape, no common language and about 15 minutes of the class to do it in. Fun times.
A ridiculous amount of oyster shells aka My Dad's worst nightmare.
I had to go to Kesennuma to teach earlier this week. 4 hours each way with a hotel stay. But it was pretty and sunny....
...and I saw fish drying...
...and my hotel had a funny name. It was actually called the Pearl City Hotel, but an unfortunate Katakana issue means that the 'Ci' bit has to read 'Shi'. I'm 100% mature.
There is nothing like cute biscuits to cheer up a boring office day.
We started watching Series 1 a couple of weeks ago, and we've now almost finished series 3. It's awesome, addictive and annoying, in almost equal quantities.
We went skiing again.
I made a big mess. I cut John's hair for him, as I was clearing up the cuttings, I knocked over a cup of rice that had been left on the fridge. And there was already a lot of other stuff on the floor because of moving it out of the way for said haircutting. Oh dear.
Proper tin openers cost ¥1000 (£10). So I improvised. Anyone who has ever read 'Three Men in a Boat' will understand why I was laughing hysterically as I did it. And anyone who hasn't read it, should.
Spring still isn't thinking about arriving in Sendai (we had more snow last night for goodness sake), so I brought spring to my nails instead...
...and to my table with a pot of flowers and a glass of summery smoothie in the afternoon sunshine.
And I made a Victoria Sandwich. In a rice cooker. And it works. Yum.
