payday

I got paid today.

¥1957.

Not for teaching English.

For making the Hi-zex curry and rice for the neighbours.

That was last August.

Lucky I have other forms of income, hey?

And 1957 yen? Not 1950, not 2,000- someone went to the trouble of getting enough small change on hand to deal out six pay packets with 1957 yen each in them.

Then again, I had no idea the red cross women's group rep got paid at all so it was a bonus and gratefully received.

Think tomorrow I'm going to go and be terribly extravagant and spend it all at once.

Might splurge on some fancy heritage tomato seeds.

At least that way if I'm ever evacuated I will have something other than fish sausage curry to eat!

You can buy a cute, fluffy, baby rabbit for 1450 yen :-D And if there's ever an emergency evacuation, you could make it into a nice casserole!

thanks slime, I love the picture too. The mountains are like nothing I grew up with which means I still look at them in awe every morning.

anchan, I would love rabbits... Meg is allergic to dogs and cats, I reckon rabbits would set her off, too.... And we are terrible farmers here- can't even kill bugs so I doubt rabbit casserole would be a possibility!
