All Alone

This week I’ve been all by myself. Yuriko and Mayuki have gone to Yuriko’s parents’ in Nagoya; the original plan was for Yuriko to sort out the boxes of stuff that she still had stored there.

I’ve been talking to them every day by Skype, and I think Mayuki recognises that it’s Daddy in the computer. She certainly appears to be looking at me and smiling and clapping. It’s plausible; she does a video chat with relatives almost every week, so she’s had plenty of chance to get used to it. She’s going to grow up thinking that video phones are the most natural thing in the world.

However, I’ve also caught up with Yuriko on what they’ve been doing. As of last night, she hadn’t quite got round to starting sorting out the boxes. They’re coming home tomorrow. I can’t say I’m surprised that she didn’t get it done, to be honest…
