As right as rain
This morning, I woke up with ever such a slight hangover. Last night, Tomono and I went out for dinner after work. Actually, she treated me to a really nice meal at a teppanyaki restaurant. In this type of place there is a large hot-plate on the table where you, or a chef, cook your food. We had steak, seafood, vegetables and okonomiyaki, which is a popular egg and cabbage based dish. Tomono knows the owner quite well and he kindly offered us lots of delicious drinks. How could we refuse? Unfortunately, I may have had a few too many, so it was a bit of a struggle to get out of bed this morning. However, I soon perked up after a cup of coffee and some toast, and now I feel as right as rain. What perks you up when you are feeling a bit rough?
Has your husband been feeling a bit out of sorts recently? I can understand why he wanted to escape from the hospital. It sounds a bit scary, I must admit, and I would probably feel scared in that situation, too. However, I’m sure suffering a little discomfort by having his stomach checked with a mirror will be worth it in order to get to the root of your husband’s minor problem. I hope that he is given a clean bill of health by the doctor soon.
Thanks for the new pictures. Xi’an looks like such a picturesque place. It’s amazing that all the structures were built such a long time ago. There are many beautiful old buildings in Japan too, but nowhere near as old as in Xi'an. I recently visited Matsumoto castle when I was in Nagano. I've never seen any crabs in a castle moat in Japan, but there are often loads of huge koi carp. I hope you like the photos.
Have a lovely weekend!
