So, in case I don't get online for a while, I'm off to Tokyo on Saturday. Excited and kind of a little freaked due to only getting the final go ahead today. I've not packed anything and I have no clue what to take. I feel like I should be dressing kind of smartly but they've all seen me looking like my usual scruff-bag self in the office in the UK already. So, I'm thinking smart-ish jeans and something a little better than a grubby t-shirt. The big problem is that I've packed up a fair number of my clothes for the move to Sweden. Ho hum.
I've got 9 or 10 days in Tokyo, depending on the return flight I actually get. I'm on the waiting list for the 14th but booked on the 15th. That means I've got 4 days of planned work and then the rest is technically mine, but I suspect there might be some work. Emma, the girl I'm handing over too is planning some drinking and eating, which is fab, but I'm currently reading guide books to decide where to go. Got a couple of ideas but I'll see how it goes. Photos may follow...oooo charge the camera battery. Something else for the to-do list.
On the plus side, today I bought myself a new jacket and a dress. The jacket is a kind of subdued turquoise and in the style of a denim jacket. Casual but not scruffy. The dress is for Azrael's wedding in Boston at the end of May. It's this one
and I really love it. The mix of colours mean that I'm almost certain to find something in the way of shoes and jacket to go with it. And it's not so smart that I'll never wear it again.
Right, I think that's all the news. Well, except that most everyone else has left the office on Tuesday so it's a bit weird at work. Also the swap from UK to Swedish contract has been a bit of a farce. I couldn't log on for 3 hours Wednesday and now I can't enter any time sheets as my SAP account has been screwed up. But I've got my temporary apartment as well as my permanent place sorted in Lund. I've got my Swedish bank sorted so it's all moving along.
Right, better go and stare at my clothes and hope inspiration strikes.
