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!).
