Latest news from France and Japan

Hello dear english speaking friends :o) It's been a while I haven't posted in English : some of you might have understood a few things from the french posts (good way to work your language skills, huh?) , but I need to cater for all my dear friends ;o) So what's been happening in Tokyo these last days ? The Todoroki house is ours. Actually, we had hoped for another house, slightly bigger, with more cupboards and also just in front of the school we want to put Romane in. The downside of this other house was its distance from... [Lire la suite]

Pictures of a prospective house

Hi guys ! the house I was talking about last week is still on the cards. Nicolas had a second viewing last saturday and sent me some pictures. You can view them on the album on the left hand side.  Nicolas has prospected another area, closer from his office, but without success : too expensive, for poor quality, and no school for Romane.

Welcome to my blog

Hello all !!! as I have many english speaking friends, I will post in english from time to time... It will not be as much detailed as in the french version, but it will give you the gist of what's happening for us in Japan. So actually, I am NOT in Japan yet : Nicolas has left a week ago and will be returning early November for the birth of our second child. Travelling there now and taking care of finding a flat and Romane at the same time would have been too dangerous to manage for me, and I certainly don't want an early... [Lire la suite]
