Well, I'm back in Tokyo after a whirlwind trip to the UK. I was there for three and half weeks, focusing on work as well as catching up with family and friends. The highlight of my trip was a family weekend away to celebrate mum's 70th birthday. She rented a house on the beach in East Wittering and it was perfect! The weather was beautiful - sunny with blue skies - and we spent the time playing on the beach and going for bracing walks followed by fish and chips. Heaven!
