    The cherry tree is called Sakura. I don't know if that's Japanese for cherry or if it's a particular type of cherry tree. The fun thing is that you can buy sakura flavoured food. Ice cream, kitkats, mochi 🍡. Starbucks do a sakura drink in the spring time. I quite like mochi but there is a particularly thick type made in New Year that old people choke on and some even die! It's very pretty though and comes in cute animal face shapes. -------------------------------------------------------------I snapped this very quickly in a car park yesterday and I didn't want to irritate people trying to get round so it's not very clear. It's a small white heron type bird. I thought it might be an egret. What do you think?

    Some stuff in the garden. The shoots are Daylilies. I always forget the name of the pink flower but it's beautiful year after year. I like it best when it's icy and the petals look sugar frosted.

    I bought a box of Japanese block print postcards from V&A. I was surprised by how 'cheeky' they were but they were just bottoms and boobs. That is Mount Yotei in the very north of Japan. It looks like Fujisan doesn't it. ( being pretentious saying Fujisan but apparently that's what Japanese people say)

    The end of March. I might, if I'm lucky get to try snowshoes and a snowmobile. I don't drive so that could be interesting.

    This is the view from ES's home. I've seen it IRL and it is actually awesome. I went on a walk towards it with DD but it never got closer! Going back soon and I'm so excited.

    LOTR marathon day

    Yes. Our timing was pretty good. We finished just before 7pm. It was really fun. It's the third time we've done this plus one Hobbit Marathon Day.

    LOTR marathon day

    We wear comfy clothes! First breakfast was very light. This is second breakfast. Lunch will be little pies salad and then tea is a big pasta bake and then cheese, crackers and beer in the evening. We've missed out about three meals. Making good progress with the second film.

    LOTR marathon day

    It's Lord of the Rings Marathon Day! All the food is prepared in advance. First breakfast and movie will be at 7am. The marathon should take about 12 hours so we're aiming to finish around 7pm 🕖

    Does anyone have a roomba??

    Yes. I have a roomba 650 which I think is quite old now. We all agree that it is great. It's the best appliance I've bought. I haven't got any complaints at all. Ours is called Edgar. At Christmas we put a christmas tree decoration on it, one of those singing ones and it trundles around like that.

    Easter swap 2019

    I want to join in although I'm bit of a scaredy cat about my abilities and I've forgotten how this works. Can I add my name anyway?

    I was reading back through the posts and at first glance it looks like Valkyrie has a particularly harsh method for dealing with manflu.
