Chie Returns

Posted on 2009/05/17 09:07:41 (May 2009).

[Saturday 9th May]
Chie came back from Japan in the evening today, which meant I spent most of the daytime tidying the flat in preparation.

She arrived with the usual suitcase full of omiyage (souvenirs) and assorted Japanese foodstuffs. Including a can of Asahi Aqua Blue, by special request. It's a sort of fake beer, called Happoshu. Asahi do a range of these, and the blue themed can contains seaweed extracts. From an objective point of view it's actually probably quite horrid - I'm sure any real ale buff would immediately turn their nose up at it - but it has a sort of nostaglic / sentimental attachment for me to my time in Japan, and I rather like it.

I made a spaghetti bolognese (which Lorenzo has recently proclaimed doesn't exist in Italy) for dinner. Inevtiably the jet lag caught up on Chie, and she was asleep not long after we finished eating, bless her.
