Okay, okay, okay... enough complaining! I'll challenge myself to a blog a day for at least the next week to try and catch up on all the happenings here and give my brother some reading before he heads off to the real world called work!
First up - it was my son's 10th birthday yesterday, so my children have both now hit double digits. It is school holidays here right now so you would think it would make it easy to have a proper celebration on his actual birthday, but..... unfortunately most of my work schedule doesn't change in the holidays, so we split his birthday in half - sushi for lunch followed by bowling yesterday. Cake and singing tonight. In Japan "coming of age" is considered to be 20 years old, so I guess we are half way there! Happy Birthday Masaki!
