Home life with an elderly Japanese lady (Okaasan) who has to live with a not-so-sweet foreign daughter-in-law (Oyomesan).
Thank you for finding my blog. After reading about your okaasan I can stand back and reflect - and thank god I don't have to cook for her and have meals with her - Granny K that is. Sounds like you are a much calmer person than me though and probably wouldn't have to resort to hiding in a washing machine with a bottle of wine to 'get away' from things :)I hope your knee sorts it self out and good luck for the banana diet. I thought very breifly about that a while back but then I think I got pregnant again and all good intentions went out the window in place of cheese and bread!
