I’m alive!!!

I know that it has been a while since my last update, so let’s get started.  One thing that I have come to love about living in Japan is the attention to detail in food, transportation and my favourite dry cleaning.   This week I had an experience that could have used a little less detail, I had my first Doctors appointment.  Let’s just say that I have been closer to my Doctor than some boyfriends.  To my ex’s reading…please don’t take it personally, the Doctor just said all the right things.   Speaking of details, I think that’s enough for now. 

Right now the hot topic in Japan is how to reduce power consumption by 20%.  We have received “guidance” from the Japanese government to set our thermostat at 28 (for my US readers that’s 82F) aka hot!  The only time I feel comfortable in that kind of heat is when I’m sitting by a pool, being served drinks by someone named Yuan.   I am all for cutting back but this week they crossed a line!  I came home to find out that my heated toilet seat had been turned off, no notice, nothing!

This picture is for Penny, this is my stove that took me three days to figure out.  Take a good look and call me if you have any suggestions....don't worry it speaks Japanese.

Thank you all for your messages, without giving too much away on a public blog, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. 

Lots of love from Tokyo…
