Well it seems like I have let this blog slip a bit and after checking my last post it appears that it was October of last year you heard from me.
So I’ve gotten around to finishing a book after my hard attempt at getting through Lord of the Rings and today I’m going to give you my thoughts on The Martian by Andy Weir.
Hey readers how’s it been?
Don’t worry this won’t be another update post. In fact this will be a kind of diary of what I did last week for my birthday celebrations.
In my last update post I said I was going to write a book review but I can’t really write a review as I haven’t finished the book I was reading.
Once again I’m going to write a blog on why I haven’t written a post in a long time, and the excuses this time is the same; busy, busy, busy…….

I know that the upgrade for Windows 10 has been available for some time but I’ve just taken an interest in it.

Since April of this year I have been staying at home as a part-time house dad until my mother in law takes over. Usually I will spend a good 7 hours doing house hold chores such as getting breakfast ready, cleaning, and then seeing the boys off to school. The remaining few hours I spend taking care of my one year old and working on my business projects. I also try to work on this blog, my short-stories and novel but with a demanding one year old it has proven to be very difficult.
As the title says I’m going to be changing the direction of this blog. As it stands my blog is about my life in Japan and my progress on my writing course but as of late I haven’t been able to do anything in regards to studying and my Japanese topics are getting less by the month.
