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.....


  1. This reminds me a lot of my MIL.
    Since SIL and family have moved in with her, she has really put on weight.
    She has diabetes and needs to be careful...

  2. You are too lucky to be going to Australia!! Have lots of fun!
