This is a rushed blog cos I have to go to hospital in 30 mins.
Was going to do a nice, measured posting.
But just had a 40 min conversation with my step-aunt about Jane, the funeral, the house, the furniture etc etc. SO many things we have to cram into the time before I go to hospital.
But my last day of freedom was good.
I did errands in the morning, and then escaped from it all and went to Makomonai Park - the old Sapporo Olympic Park - and lay under some trees in the grass to think about Life, Death and the Meaning of it all. Then I read some newspapers. Drank some juice.
Came home via a posh supermarket and bought crab and fake champagne for dinner.
Yujiro and OKaasan and I sat down and ate crab and toasted my operation.
This is my family now...for better or for worse!
Okaasan has finally really caught onto the fact that I AM having an operation and going into hospital - she overheard my phone conversation with a friend and maybe my recent cheerful chat about "good hospital, good doctors, nothing to worry about" clicked into place.
See you on the other side.
I'll try to get Yujiro to post an: "Oyomesan is ok" or "Oyomesan gave birth to 3 kittens and a melon" message. And i'll try to get to a computer sometime soon.
Bye for now.
