After some early hiccups, I’m normally very organised with my new things, but with this week’s chaos bringing new worries, it wasn’t until 9pm that I realised I hadn’t done anything yet!
I scanned through my list for something quick and relatively simple and found a suggestion by a friend to learn how to count to ten in Japanese – something my talented husband can do.
I have to admit, I already knew how to count to four thanks to Missy Elliot’s Get Ur Freak On, but the rest was brand new. James taught me the words, and then as an added extra I learnt how to write them in kanji too.
Now I know how to order 10 more onigiri, or play hide-and-seek with a Japanese child!
