Meal out in Sabae to meet Flick's Mum.
A really good meal, lots of alcohol...swiftly followed by a karaoke session and more alcohol.  All in good company, too.  What more could you ask for?!

Changing of the leaves, and making flutes
Tom and I had an early start this morning as we drove out to Izumi to admire the beautiful scenery...and also make Japanese flutes.  It was a really interesting experience, even if our teacher was despairing when she tried to teach us how to play our new flutes!

44th Fukui Ken English Oratorical Contest For Senior High Schools!
Like last year, I helped Aoyama-sensei make arrangements.  A HUGE thank you to the ALTs (and Tom) who acted and judges and chairpeople - you did a fantastic job guys, making this year's contest better than last!

Detox
Yes, it can be done.  We invested a lot of time into juicing...ate only fresh fruit and raw veggies...and felt absolutely no different at the end of it...!

Lecture and demo lessons at Jin-ai Girl's Senior High School
Although not really relevant to my situation, it was good to get an afternoon off work ;)  (which must also have been in the minds of two of my JTEs, who also attended!)

Hiroshima
I was very fortunate to be able to go back to Hiroshima with Tom.  It's such a fab city, I just couldn't stay away!  ;)

ALT Mid-year Conference
We're very lucky in Fukui to have a great group of people - the conference was really interesting, and actually quite helpful!  (Thanks to the people that came to our workshop - hope you found it useful!  And a HUGE thank you to our Kencho Alt, Jazz,  for all her hard work making the MYC a success!).

Powa Howa & the party after the MYC
Drink...and lots of it.  Fun times!
Unfortunately, due to a technology malfunction (i.e. I forgot to charge the batteries in the camera), I only have a few pics of the event.  If anyone has some they could send me, it would be much appreciated!

Mugenkyo Taiko Concert in Takefu
Mugenkyo is a professional British Taiko group, and this was a bit of a homecoming for them - the two founding members lived in Fukui for 2 years (one of them was a JET in Takefu), and they learned taiko here.  We were very privileged to see them perform with their Taiko sensei!  The concert was absolutely fabulous (although those with a hangover from the night before may disagree with me).
