Jet Lag is Not My Friend

We had the most wonderful time in Japan, we met family there too as my brother Yoda and his partner flew from San Francisco which made the trip even more special. We packed so much into the week but knew we'd never manage to do everything on our cumulative lists - still, we gave it our best shot.

But I am knackered, properly "can't retrieve the correct words" weary. I was just getting over the jet lag on the way out and we got on a plane and flew home. My brother spends his life flying long haul, I have no idea how he does it.

And Blogsy is not playing ball today, I don't have the foggiest idea why not but have no energy to wrestle with it!

So, here are a few photos of random wonderfulness, if you ever get the chance to visit Japan I'd recommend you grab it with both hands.

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

Shibuya crossing

I'll plough through the washing today! Perhaps take a little nap, and then photograph my purchases (there were a few!) to share. I even have a little giveaway planned by way of a thank you for following my ramblings - Arigato.


  1. It looks so wonderful! And how fantastic that your brother was able to join you :) Looking forward to seeing more photos and all of your purchases!

  2. Oh, it looks like you had a wonderful time. I can't wait to see your purchases and hear more about it once you've recovered a bit.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment :)
