in the blink of an eye
Before the weekend, I was going to write about chocolate biscuits, but then it seems like there are more important things to talk about right now. We have friends over in Japan so our thoughts are with them and everyone else affected by the unimaginable events of the past few days.
I've been reflecting on many good times had in Japan over the years, from when I was 10 years old, attending school (and learning how to ride a unicycle on the roof of Nagatacho Primary) to more recently when we stayed with our friend Matt, cooked up a traditional Christmas dinner (complete with turkey, fruit mince pies and peas) and then went bowling. It is hard to believe how quickly things can change in the blink of an eye. It really makes you take stock of what is important, to focus on appreciating the simple things in life and to help if you can.
