12th October, 2006 - Needing a bit of time together, T-chan and I headed off to Maeda Shinrin-koen, where we'd done our X-country skiing way back in 2003. In Autumn the place looks completely different... instead of a wide expanse of snow, we see an environment of green, with a just a few splashes of red as the weather cools and Autumn starts to take hold. The clouds roll through, but there's no real threat of cold/wet weather coming. It's the perfect place to have a chat about things like parenting as there's plenty of space to let your thoughts go free.
It's a great park to walk, and in spring and summer it's also a great locale to see a veriety of blooms. Now there's not much to see flower-wise. Winter approaches.

With T-chan pregnant, it was a common for her to be the last to leave the table. When you can't taste what you're eating though, there's not much enjoyment in it.
Everyone was full...Even T-chan's cat. What a life.
