Nettie’s World – 2020. Reflection.

This year marks twenty-five years ago that I went to live in Japan.

The hubby kids and I were having brunch and was watching a Japanese news programme, when it talked about the Hanshin earthquake in 1995.

It reminded me that I was preparing to go and live the rest of my life in Japan. A dream that I had since the age of ten, after watching The Water Margin and Monkey. Shogun and Karate Kid sealed it for me.

I realised that if I hadn’t made that decision, then I would not have the family unit that I have.

I realise that my family unit is still rare in Japan and in the UK, but I am so glad that I made that decision.

This year I will be going to a Robin of Sherwood Convention, going to see alot of 80’s band’s celebrating their anniversaries. E.g. Level 42, Simple Minds, Go West and others.

Back to the eighties for me.

Am also trying to go to the Olympics in Tokyo, as I was a Games Maker in London 2012, but was unsuccessful to be one in Tokyo. Will just have to go and soak up the energy. Gambarimasu.
