Today I took my son to Narita Tokyo airport. He is on the plane right now. We used to live in Chelsea ,London. he still has some friends there. So he has some experiences of 12 hours flight. But this time, it is a bit different...actually totally different. He is coming to England alone! Of course he isn't really alone, He is going there with some kids and tour guides. He is there for summer school, learning English, playing tennis, football....etc.....
This morning at the air port, I nearly cried to see te...Read more
It was sunny today. I went swimming with my son and his friends. Actually I just took a lift to the swimming pool.
There is a small swimming pool on the top of the building. It's on the 21st floor. The building is between 2 rivers. I really like the beautiful view from the pool. I live on the 11th floor and can use it in summer. I think it's quite unusual for apartments in Japan. There is a jacuzzi as well.
Usually I use sun block lotion. I'm thinking of getting sun tan skin this year. For a change! I know it's bad...Read more

I ate out with my sis and her boyfriend tonight. He is from Italy, living in London at the moment. I think he is a typical italian guy. He talks a lot about his mum and pizza!!
In my opinion italian guys are really sweet. My sis's boyfriend always gives me flowers when we eat out together. He gives me a little present too. They met in London 2 years ago. At that time my sister couldn't speak English. We went to a language school in Camdentown together. Every morning before we went to the school, we had coffe at Staubucks.(Sturbu...Read more

I'm scared of going to spa. Not happy at all. :(
It was Father's day yesterday. I went to sushi restaurant with my family. We enjoyed chatting and sushi of course.
I like tuna the best. Sushi is really popular all over the world. Once I went to Sushi restaurant in London. It was way too expensive and not so good. Yeah I knew that already before I went there. But you know, I missed sushi a lot at that time.
By the way... mother's day is in May here. In England , its in March. Father's day is the same date in both countries. How about other countries???
We are in the rainy season here in Tokyo. Actually rainy season started 2 days ago. Sometimes we don't notice that we are already in the rainy season.
