Day 23

Hmmmm, I'm not sure what to go for themewise, so I am going to post a couple of pics, and then see what I get tomorrow, and then decide.

My options are rainbow theme, a colour a day.
Red today:
On the way to Shinto Temple

My favourite warning on the Tokyo Subway

Or I could just go for a pure rainbow theme!

Rainbow theme!

Day 20

It's a hanging basket of what looks like cabbage. 
We went to Disneyland Tokyo today, which is an odd combination of disney overload, and Japanese oddities!

Day 17

I'm rich!!! Rich I tell you!

Day 16

The lady at check-in at Heathrow very kindly told us that the plane wasn't full, and seated us so we got three seats between the two of us.

We haven't named the troll yet, any suggestions?

Day 13

Reminds me of childhood:
Part of my teddy bear collection. The giant bunny was given to me by my grandad one Easter. The red dolls are all variations of my beloved Annie. Annie herself is in bits (basically she is just a head with some rags hanging out of it). The other dolls got called Ann and Anna and other such variations. And my Jonathon. I got him for Christmas one year from an aunt of my dads. My mum hadn't seen the present hand over and was convinced I was lying when I told her it was mine.

Day 12

Reminds me of childhood: School! Though I have to say classrooms have gotten a lot more colourful now than what I remember. (One of my classrooms in secondary school was actually painted grey and sick yellow)

Who doesn't remember colouring in?

Day 10

Reminds me of childhood: A random collection of toys and stuff that are sitting on top of the bookshelf in my bedroom. Included are the creepy porcelain dolls, my National Irish Bank savings parrot, a 1998 cube calendar with pictures of Ireland, and most importantly, an assortment of Happy Meal toys - Mc Donald's was a rare treat, and if we got the chance we would pick Burger King - the toys in their kids meals were definitely better.

Day 9

Reminds me of childhood: The view from my bedroom window in my parents house, along with a stained glass clown that has been there for years. Our old minder gave him to me, but I don't remember where he came from.

Day 8

Reminds me of childhood. Remember when any amount of snow, even the lightest sprinkling was enough to get us so excited.

Day 7

Last day of Resolutions: I will fill all of my empty photo frames.

Day 6

Resolution: I will not loose images to cyber space. I took a picture this morning, somehow with no memory card in the camera. And now its gone!
Its Eileen's fault. The girl is tiny, and no one believes how much she eats. I had photographic evidence of her breakfast, and it has disappeared. Its all a conspiracy. (For anyone who is interested her breakfast consisted of a chicken and stuffing roll, two little tins of Pringles, a packet of treble crunch, 5 sausage rolls - only cos they were 5 for a euro, chocolate milk and a packet of little sweets that I can't remember what they are called. Think thats it.)

Only yesterday I discussed taking a stock of photos with Monica. I was against it. Not so much now. So here is a pic I took yesterday (though I have to say her pic of me is better. She managed to get a picture of my flash!)

Day 5

Resolution: To go back to Weight Watchers. Which I did, and am now learning all about the new pro points system. So after being down 2lb, I decided to use my entire daily allowance, and my entire weekly allowance all in one go!!! Captain America's - Nyom!!!

Day 4

These, apparently, are puffles. I'm not entirely sure what that means, but they are very cute!

Day 3

Resolutions: I will be on time!! I'm sorry to say that aside from when I go to work, I am nearly always late. This year I'm going to make the effort to be on time, instead of arriving in a fluster.

Day 2

Resolution: Not to have a similar figure (or hair) to the troll, and to break my love affair with chocolate.
