kia ora!

it's early in the morning and i'm the only one awake.
man i hate time zones/jet lag.

a few days ago we made the long haul flight from japan all the way down to new zealand (via hong kong). it took us about 26 hours from leaving k-chan's home in nagano before reaching my home in new zealand. oh and two trains, two planes, and a car trip.
surprisingly kou-chan travelled well. he tried to sleep on the long flight over; when i say try it's because he kept being woken up by the screaming baby girl beside us who's parents couldn't care less...

anyway, it's so nice to be back home and i can"t believe that this time we will be staying for a month; just chilling out making the most of summer down under.

kou-chan has seen (and pulled at) his first cat and experienced what grass is; he didn't like the feel of grass on his feet (and no, there were no prickles!)
he even got what he wanted, my mum's glasses.

will try to post and check out your fabulous blogs more often if i can!

Haha, Kou-chan looks über-cute with his granma's glasses! :)

And ditto what Pascale said, don't worry about the blogs, just enjoy your stay back home. Sweet! :D

here's me thinking that he would just love being able to roll around on the grass. i so wasn't expecting that reaction!
