A parenting challenge

Another stinking hot day in Tokyo.  I accidentally pushed the emergency button on the intercom, and the hot water went on the blink.  Little Miss O was fractious and sweaty.  We needed bubbles.

She sat in a cold bath and blew bubbles, while I sat on the floor with an icy cold Asahi and blew bubbles too.  Bliss. Both of us felt relaxed and at peace.  In fact, it was so much fun, we did it twice - once at noon and once at about 5pm.

Tomorrow,  we are going to do number 36 - set up a hammock, make lemonade and relax.  Errr... but we don't have a hammock, so we will just make the lemonade.  Gas man permitting of course.
