Friends from Japan

My internet friend Etegaminikki (Hatsue) who is very involved in organizing and showing her etegami along with that of her friends  has sent me a beautiful postcard with a lovely message. I wish you could hold the card in your hand as it has a beautiful silky feel and some of the paint is quite raised up.
I hope someday my work will be so nice.
Speaking of Japanese friends I am eagerly awaiting the arrival tomorrow of someone who was a "homestay girl" at my house when I lived in Sydney. She is holidaying in Australia with her partner and I am looking forward to hearing her news so we can catch up after 10 years.
Unfortunately our house was flooded (a flash flood after a devastating storm) three years ago and I lost, along with almost all of our possessions, the address book with the names of all of my homestay girls and because I had moved they could not contact me.
Thankfully a couple have found me via Facebook so I hope more will do so in the future.


  1. How exciting to be able to catch u[ with a long time friend.

  2. I'd like to write your homestay girl in my blog.

    It's wonderful to be able to hearing her news.
    on this day.
