Christmas prep and being sick

Well, I got my Christmas parcel for back home sent off. Shaking Gift I hope it gets there by Christmas.

I am planning our Christmas party. I have decided on the finger food, alcoholic drinkies, mingling type party, which may prove a challenge as Japanese are used to the let's-sit-on-the-floor-and-crowd-around-a-little-table type thing, like this

Christmas Party

Well, I think I have finally managed to convince Yutaka that we should have a Christmas party. Christmas Tree

I just love this time of year and enjoy getting together with friends. It kind of bugs me that Christmas is all decorations and crappy Christmas songs in supermarkets here, but then that's about it. Just another working day for everyone. BUT this year it's on a Saturday, so everyone is free and can come for lunch!!!! Way Too Happy

I'm also planning on cooking a 'traditional' Christmas dinner for my new Japanese family. First Christmas as a 'wife'....yikes...Ignoring You Anyone have a good recipe for Christmas cake?


One thing they do well here at Christmas is, Christmas lights. They are huge, gorgeous and spectacular!!! This gives you a bit of an idea

Don't analyse your vomit.

Nice title huh? Went to a wedding party yesterday and woke up with a cracker of a hangover this morning. Although on taking note of the contents of my vomit, it may have been more to do with the combination of foods.... Vomit Into The Toilet

How am I going to be able to eat Kaarage again?

Getting to know blogging and Christmas

Well, from being a bit of a technophobe, I have managed to get a few more things working on this blog today. Pretty damn proud of myself. Wow

Seems Christmas is in the air.... Mistletoe Kiss Christmas decorations up everywhere, Christmas music playing.... So today I got into the spirit of things and started making Christmas cards. Making I hear you say.....well, I haven't been very crafty in a while, so I decided it was high time to get the glue and scissors out. Card Making
