My Week: Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off outside we go

SPRING IS HERE!! Well, it has been. It's now raining again, and that is forecast to continue most of this week. Right when I want to be enjoying my first Sakura (Cherry Blossom) season in Japan. Urgh.

But, we have had a week of gorgeous weather, which we've been enjoying wholeheartedly.

I love daffodils! 

I hate the overhead wires that are everywhere in Japan :( But this river is such a lovely colour!

I found and used a bee venom face mask. Random.

On Saturday, a friend took us to an awesome park. We ate, walked, played badminton, acted like children and enjoyed the sunshine.

Freaky-deaky dogs.

We subtly ignored the (bilingual) signs that said children only. Who wouldn't want to play on a massive bouncy mound?!

Smiles may blossom, or they may not. That all depends on the weather. 

Rurousha, I think this one of your dream eating Baku!

Trees are starting to look a little pink around the edges, but no Sakura yet! I'll be back later in the week!

The Plum blossoms are still lovely though, and smell gorgeous.

Dressed in pink to encourage the sakura on!

A really rather effeminate photo!

Last week, on Friday 13th, a child from school gave me a four leaf clover. There's a luck conundrum for you! 

I hope everyone else is enjoying the spring weather too!


  1. What a lovely mishmash of interesting stuff. ^^

    That's a particularly beautiful baku, yes!

    I love daffodils too, and those dressed-up dogs freak me out, and if I didn't know better, I would've thought John was a herbivore man! :D

  2. I wanna have a go at the bouncy mound too!
