may already and 5 weeks till mum comes to visit.

the other day i got a surprise phone call from my sister to say that my mum and aunt are coming to tokyo to visit us for a week at the start of june.  flights from oz must be really cheap cause in a period of three months we will have six or seven family members and friends come to stay with us.  it is going to be busy busy busy but i am really looking forward to it.

i enjoy fridays.

i teach at a learning centre for a couple of hours in the morning and the students are fantastic.  most of them are in their late 60s to late 70s.  i have been teaching them esl for the past 6 or so years.  at the start of the year a young lady (mio) joined the group but today was her last day cause she is going to have a baby in a few days time.  we will all miss you mio.

also at the centre some kids have been working really hard, making soft toys out of socks.
