Today was an interesting day; I found 2 English TV channels I never knew we had. So in true Wendy fashion I checked them out by sitting on my backside and watching them most of the day…well not when I had my HUGH nap,
I must have been extremely tired from picking the TV remote up , swapping channels, put the remote down, picking the remote up again to switch to the other new channel. That must be why I needed that nap. What I like about the new channels is, they don’t seem to show Crime shows. No Law and Order, No CSI, No Nay NCIS, NO Lie to me, and No The Unit. While I like some of these shows, there is only so much crime you can take!
One show I watched was Iron Chef US. The secret ingredient today was Cat fish… (Yuck)
Most of what they did with the Cat fish was also YUCK!!!!! Cat fish in an icing sugar batter to be dipped in Mexican melted chocolate…Yuck! Cat fish Carpaccio, 3 different flavours of it!!!! YUCK. Cat fish with the back bone kept in as a chop…YUCK! If I do eat fish...No shell, no skin, no eyes or tails and no knobble sticking out like a chop….
I am looking forward to the next show…REALLY I am.

Tonight we went to Jolly Pasta for dinner with Mrs. H and N3.
I mean I was so tired after my nap that I needed to avoid the kitchen. I looked at the menu (which is all in Japanese) Thank goodness for the pictures on the menu. I have noticed here in Japan that a lot of dishes come with soft boiled/poached eggs. I see one dish and think ok …but I start worrying incase this has fish in…YUCK!!!! So J asked in Japanese if there is fish…to which I get a perfect English reply…No only meat…Have to say it was a nice-ish dinner. I would go back and have another meal. J wolfed down his pizza before anyone had finished…strange really because but some food in front of him and we could be there a LONG time!

Thursday I am having a Pot luck lunch here, I have no idea what I will make…I mean any need? I should know already, It is Tuesday night…salad, chicken, pork, potatoes or desserts????
I have no idea…may be some sausage rolls…then I make some for J and make life easier….May be a pie, a pasta salad, apple pie, brownies or bread and dips….I have no idea.
I had better make my mind up soon or it will be crackers and cheese!

After getting over my two trips to IKEA in one day, the weekend was pretty awesome.
So after having dinner with friends Friday night, Saturday was a pretty laid back day.
I did a few chores during the day, (buy and replacing light bulbs, detergent shopping) really exciting chores…..
I then got ready to go to Burns night on my lonesome.
I tried on 16 outfits, each outfit came from different size/diet stages of my life…Why I would decided to try on/pick what I was wearing 25 minutes before I went out I have no idea….
I arrive at the event to see how much effort everyone had put in. The guys were wearing their kilts. The ladies looked beautiful.
As soon as the tables were moved to make way for the dancing I left and went into the bar to play darts…MY WAY! If I get under 10 in a throw I take the dart and throw again…
Then after drink more Cola than was really necessary I drove home and was awake all night.
So after calling G for most of the night to tell him I could not sleep I finally nodded of around 4 in the morning
Then went to some local community thing in the park where they were banging hot stick rice with mallets….REALLY!
It was explained to me that the community got together a few times a year, and this was where we would camp out if lost our homes to an earthquake or such.
It was pretty cool to met our neighbours, who ALL tried to make us feel welcome.

Today I went to the gym, washed and cleaned my car inside and out (found 17 water empty water bottles) finished 2 craft projects, spoke with Yeti Moo, rechecked that I have turned the water of over 20 times..(Well water is expensive here!!!) All before 12 noon….Go me!!!!!

Tonight myself and Mrs.H went walking…we seen a garden that had a Mickey Mouse fence….REALLY
There were also Mickey Mouse lanterns along with one or two other Mickey items….Any need!
Some pretty awesome houses in pour neighbourhood…I just don’t understand why when you have something like a five bedroom house why do they only give you parking space????
The parking space is normally not big enough for your car….Any need???
