Okaasan EATS so much!
We always aim for dinner at 7 pm.
Last night I walked into the kitchen at 6.20 pm and found her sitting on the sofa in her room with a plastic box of rice dumplings on sticks smothered in sweet bean paste...scoffing them down.
It's funny for a woman who is always says she is so careful and about what she eats and how much she eats and when she eats!
I was out for Family Dinner because of work - but Yujiro said later that of course she wasn't very hungry for the food he cooked and served.
I am sure Okaasan has put on weight since she came to live with us - partly the food we cook and make sure she eats, but also the eating at all times and when she sees something she likes.....I hope when I am 81 years old I have the same abandon.
Hell - maybe I do now anyway.
Just came away from another dentist trip and I'm sitting here eating chocolates to comfort myself.
One more dentist trip to go before I fly away from all of this next Thursday afternoon.....
