Japan has a public holiday this coming Monday, so I am having a four day weekend. I am getting ready now to go off to the bank. It is pretty hot and humid here today. I will probably follow that with a trip to the book store, gym and then the local pool, with a bit of blogging in between. It is amazing how the day can get away from when you don’t have a fixed shedule, but then again having a day off is pretty rare for me, so I think I can be forgiven for kicking back a bit.

For my summer holiday I am off to Thailand. For me, a relaxing holiday has to be in a warm climate by the beach. I am still thinking whether I should take my laptop. I figure that even though I am holiday, I will have time to do some writing while waiting for planes/buses/ferries. I also find I can write better if I am in a different environment.
