[Monday 1st May]
As we were going to be heading to Hiroshima for "golden week" the next evening, I was loathed to buy any new food, that would inevitably go unused and just sit moulding away in the fridge during our absence. So instead I decided we should use up some odds and ends - the remainder of last night's red wine stew, and some leftover boston baked beans that had been lurking in the freezer for a week or so. The results were surprisingly good - both dishes seemed to have benefitted for a bit of maturation, and went down very well with some leftover crusty bread (which, being in Japan, wasn't particularly crusty). That's pretty much it for today really. Just eating, and a bit of preparation for our five nights away.

Today marked one year since we came to Japan, to start looking for work and have a go at living here. Looking back it's been a pretty eventful twelve months, and it is weird to think that this time last year I really had no idea what the future would hold - where I would be working, etc. All I had was one interview arranged. I keep meaning to write a sort of "year in review" article to chronicle all the major events of this period, which has been like a kind of project in many ways... but never quite seem to get round to it. Maybe some time soon!

I believe a happy anniversary is in order, then!

Thanks Sheri!

Actually I suddenly fancy a glass of champagne, strangely.
