hanami 2016, part 1

I just came back from Tokyo a day ago, and this is what I managed to drag back that isn’t food.

Thank goodness I was only going with a backpack. Who knows how many more gachas would have came with me otherwise.

More details and photos soon.

unexpected saturday

Initially booked up saturdays this month for artsy-fartsy stuff, it ended up getting bumped a couple of weeks later so decided to do a bit of London roaming….




a lovely surprise…

I was all set to go to Penzance last weekend via first great western’s first class cabin sleeper train, the night riviera. But due to the incredible amount of rain and storms we’ve had this winter, many parts of the rail tracks were either underwater or swept away into the sea.

So I canceled everything, and decided to go sometime later this year instead.

Last night I came home to an unexpected parcel waiting for me….

first great western

The rail company sent this goodie bag, along with a lovely little note of apologies. I must admit I was very thrilled.
