My husband's two ex-colleague ladies came and one with her lovely daughter and the other with her future husband; they are marrying this October. We had nice time together; we saw the little girl last fall and wonderful to see her grown to a little kid and not a baby any more.
Lovely lunch time and also sweet to hear that the cute little girl call hubby "soba-uncle; お蕎麦のおじちゃん", for me "English-aunt; 英語のおばちゃん" ♡♡♡
We bought a set of cooking pan for the couple as a present of their marriage and also this cutting board. In Japan we normally use these wooden boards. Hubby knows a woodcrafter and I also asked him to buy us a new one♪♪♪ I wonder if you use these things in western countries as well.
And another day, my ex-students who is teaching English to kids at language school in Chiba-pref. came back to her parent's home and kindly stopped by to our house. We used to tell me that she wanted to teach children English. I am quite happy that she accomplished her dream even though it must be tough sometimes.
Last Saturday, my new PC arrived and the staff from the Elec-company trying to connect it with internet. Well, the router was old and in a bad shape; he needed to change it (means I had to renew it). He had to get back to his store and brought a new one. Setting up took him a lot longer than he expected... I feel so sorry and truly appreciated him for is help. Oh, you all must know how it is when you have a new one; I have been struggling since then(^^;) I might have made a call to support-center more than 10 times for several tiny bits of matters that had been changed, p;) Their remote-service (they assist me watching my screen) really is inevitable for me! I would't have been able to use PC without their help, how lucky I am that this staff reccomended me the particular company when I first bought PC.
*One sad news
Besides the guests, we had to visit a couple of relatives this week. And one sad thing happened to us. One of our pine tree died and has been cut. We only have one small sized one left. Our biggest one died many years ago and this time...; hubby looked really sad about this. He had been seeing the leaves changing its color to brown. He rushed away as he couldn't see the worker cutting it. So sorry with this long post, my friends and thank you for stopping by. I almost feel kind of guilty that I couldn't contact you so long... I'll catch you later♬♬♬
