I am surrounded by the things I am not doing. There are kanji flashcards on the sofa, verb lists on the rug, dishes that need cleaned on the floor, and a whole pile of laundry that should really be hung out to dry. But I just don’t feel like dealing with any of it. I would like instead to be playing Scrabulous on Facebook but it’s not working at the minute so I will have to wait. And instead I will waste my time writing in my blog.

For some reason today is one of those days when I have no interest in the things that need doing. I can’t even be bothered to read a book – though maybe that’s because I woke up early and read a book this morning. Even the classical music playing in the background is annoying me today. Travelling has left me out of sorts.
