A Pilgrim’s Tale6 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!
