A Pilgrim’s Tale

6 October 2009

On Thursday I’m going on my annual pilgrimage to England to visit my mother, who’s now 89.  A couple of days in Hong Kong, plus a night in Helsinki, on the way there, and 3 days in Tokyo on the way back.

Last year I had a dreadful time with internet connections – all my friends seemed to have computer problems simultaneously and on the day I went to a public library, even their connection was down.  Better luck this time.  And I’ve now got a netbook so if I can find a WiFi cafe, I’m all set up.   

One of the highlights this visit is that I’m spending a weekend with good friends in Bristol PLUS meeting up with Emily whose family lives just around the corner from them.  Should be a lovely weekend.  Also spending a weekend with my sister and her family and hoping to visit good friends and the rest of my family in London. 

I’ll try to keep in touch!


  1. I look forward to hearing about the stages of your pilgrimage – if the gods of the internet allow! Bon voyage, and my best wishes to Emily and Clare.

  2. Have a great time – when will you back?

  3. Have a safe trip, wonderful visit with family and friends.

  4. Have a lovely lovely time. And please take with you a hug each for Emily and Clare. I miss my lunches with Emily.

  5. I can’t wait to see you! (And to send best wishes back to my friends in Sydney).

    So excited, Sally…

  6. Have a great trip!

  7. Enjoy!

  8. I hope you get to do lots of cooking. 🙂
