Time to go

Since I’ve now told Sensei, some close friends and, today, The Company, I think it’s time to share this news on the blog… I am going to be leaving Japan at the end of August.

I feel like it’s time to go home. Amazing as Japan is, an awesome country that’s given me some incredible experiences, delicious food as well as a fair few aches and pains, I miss my friends and family, and feel it’s time to start a new chapter in life. On a personal note, this will start with my becoming an aunt in September, and on a professional one, with the commencement of a course in Garden Design, which will (hopefully!) lead to a new career that never sees me being based in an office ever again!

As the time for me to go approaches I’ll try and do some more reflective posts – the good and bad of Japan, the things I want to take home (literally and metaphorically) and the things I’ll be glad to see the back of – plus I’ll be doing some travelling so will have lots of photos and adventures to post.

For now, however, I’m focusing on the last six days of work before I’m faced with an expanse of free time (and hot weather!).

    Where will your course be based? You must have mixed feelings about heading home, it sounds like you’ve had an awesome time in Japan but I can imagine it’s hard being a long way from your family. Congrats on becoming an auntie soon! Looking forward to seeing you in the UK soon!

    Wow, time to go home already. I guess you are very excited about going back to the UK. I still only slighty miss home, but im very much looking forward to seeing my friends again. I so want a sandwich. But I’ve always enjoyed reading your blog and you should keep going!
    It’s a shame too as im starting to plan a snowboarding trip to Japan for next year. Always welcome though :) Enjoy the rest of your time and have a safe flight hope! Andy x
