who does that?

Who arranges to visit a friend on the very day her husband gets back from an overseas business trip?

Who sets out on an adventure to the big smoke to visit somewhere they've never been before with the wrong address?

Who sets out to drive to someone's house without said person's phone number in their mobile phone?

Who gets lost and asks at a real estate agent for an address?

Who lets their bored, tired kids play in the back of the car, hears paper crinkling and then remembers there's a bag of fresh soba noodles back there?

Who still hands that soba over as a hostess gift?

Who spends 2 hours trawling the back streets looking for a view they've seen in a photo to tip them off where the house they're looking for is?

Who uses an electrical store's computer to try and access the internet and send their friend an email?

Who emails a third person whose husband is in hospital asking for mutual friend's phone number?

Who then emails a different person again (email cold calling) on a tip off that they may have the number?

Who (on finally arriving- you wouldn't believe what a difference a single digit can make in someone's address....) falls onto the sofa and sits there non-communicative with exhaustion?

Whose husband eats the amazing afternoon tea, drinks a coffee and then makes his farewells less than thirty minutes after arriving?

Certainly not us.

No way.

We have way better manners than that.

wow yet another adventure from the ever entertaining northern family!! I hope you enjoyed seeing your friend though.

BTW the lovely bored police officers stuck in their little boxes usually are very obliging (especially to pretty girls!!)

Glad I wasn't the only one who forgot to punch in the appropriate phone numbers last weekend! I too, was phoning people all over Kyushu trying to find the needle I was looking for in the haystack of Kumamoto castle

sara- thank you, it was great fun. And thank you. ;P

achan- one for future reference! We were trying to do as much research as possible from our base camp in a family restaurant carpark as the traffic was unbelievable (well for us anyway)

Rachel- really? I feel less of an idiot already. Foolishness shared is foolishness halved? ;P
