Daddy's daughter (J)

I decided to go to the UK.
July 1 to 10.

I've been going back and forth on this one for the past week, and finally decided. Now I think it was a good decision.

Dad sounded so down on the phone last week, maybe Jane's condition isn't getting any better and he is beginning to realize quite how bad she is and how long this could all go on for. She still can't eat normally and she's only been up and sitting in a chair once.

I will go and keep him company on the daily hospital visits, help him cook and shop. Just hang out.

Now I have to find substitute teachers to cover my classes at the NHK community school classes. My own classroom I can just close for 10 days. But the NHK classes I have to find cover. And I have to apologise to the managers for doing this again.

But my visit will give Dad a big lift. I'm an only child and he doesn't have any family apart from me. My step-mum has a big family. But Dad only has me.

Here in Sapporo all is well.
Yujiro got one night of food poisoning from something he ate on Friday night: we decided it must have been the dried fish he had as beer snacks. Okaasan bought these, but she had forgotten them in a bag on the carpet near her heater for we-don't-know-how-long...and maybe the fish had gone bad!
Poisoned by your own mother..,poor guy!
