New Year's Day

Rather a grey and miserable day. Was running out of ideas for things to do so we just went to the playground for a bit, and went to our nearby pasta place for lunch.

Sunday 17th January 2016
Mostly tried to keep Erika entertained at home in the daytime, as we were a bit too lazy to go out. In the evening the girls went to see a friend of Chie's for a nabe party, and I saw a fox on the streets of Kentish Town.
