My initial intention was to use this space as a touchbase with those who are physically and geographically remote (but hopefully, psychologically very close..) to update them with my news. But as a few people know, I moved from London to Japan last April to start a new job, and ever since I was in a turmoil of everything new and unexpected. Long and hard hours of work, manners of the language nearly-forgotten but very important in the social (and especially business) situations, travelling, setting up a nest, exploration in the area, upgrading my mobile phone, sorting out my parents etc etc.
For the 8 years I was in Britain I’ve made more friends than I had in Japan. So now this space will, and WILL, be the touchbase with them. Surely!
So wish you all a happy new year and many happy returns in 2008!
