My Life Ordinary

So ICT and Pedagogy is over, but I am going to keep going with the blog. At the moment I am in Osaka, I have a permanent resident visa for Japan so I come once a year to keep my visa current. I spent 16 years of my life living here, and it is home to me. The rainy season has kicked off and it is overcast with rain headed our way today. I am staying with a friend for two nights, then house sitting for another friend for a week from tomorrow.

Today’s post goes out to Ilona at Cairns International Airport yesterday for her complete kindness and trust toward a complete stranger who was having a first-world crisis – my friends dropped off at the airport and as I am lined up waiting to check in I realised I had left my mobile phone on the charger at their house. So I can’t call them, coz I didn’t have my bloody phone, all I had was the iPad. I tried to access the wifi at the airport, but couldn’t log on, so asked a complete stranger if I could use her phone as a wifi hotspot so that I could access Facebook on my iPad and call my friend about my phone. Ilona was kind enough to trust me with accessing the wifi from her phone. I was able to call my friend and they dropped my phone to me and I was on my way. I must remember to return that kindness myself to a stranger in need and in panic!

I don’t if anyone will bother to keep up with their own blogs, or follow anyone else, but I will be! Please keep in touch!
