I'm back. I came into work today to start getting caught up with the backlog. Still feeling a bit ropey but glad to be out and about again. It was raining hard when I came in, but the fresh air was lovely.

Boss and I have been invited to lunch or dinner with the new Consul General of Japan. I'm looking forward to meeting him. Previously Boss had arranged for an event in the Scottish Parliament to celebrate the life of Thomas Blake Glover who had such an impact on Japan, although little is known about him here. This went down really well and included a karate demonstration, traditional Japanese food and sake as well as a host of other things. It would be great to do it again.
