[Thursday 18th December]
Chie had observed that work had been getting me down somewhat the past few days, so endeavoured to provide a change of scenery this evening. So we met up at Oxford Circus after work, and, after a cursory bit of shopping (Chie wanted to buy a new dress for her company's Christmas party the next day) we headed over to Abeno Too for some okonomiyaki.

This made for a good distraction from the stresses of work, and along with the usual kiso mix okonomiyaki (mushrooms, lotus root, garlic and cheese - very good as always) I had some sake, served in a traditional masu, which I enjoyed a huge amount.

Alas though, after leaving the restaurant my thoughts returned to work, and I decided to actually go back to the office for a couple of hours on the way home. Despite it being late, and being slightly the worse for wear for sake I managed to make promising strides on the accursed "Sisyphus Bug" (see yesterday's entry). I left the office around midnight, went back home, and was able to sleep somewhat more soundly with the knowledge that there may actually be light at the end of the tunnel.
