I open a letter this morning that looks very official. On the envelope, Japan Pension Service is written. Inside there appears to be some sort of cheque.

Why now?

I have made no effort to apply for a Japanese pension. It appears that mills have been grinding very small somewhere. I interpret this a me getting 33,238¥ a month. Thank you. Mind you, I did pay a lot of tax. I will get a Japanese buddy to read all the accompanying documentation, maybe it is a bill.

To continue the happiness, I go sailing. Finally a beautiful day.

Great day on the water!

I have to motor the last bit against the wind into the harbor as I must rush back home to be there for the Amazon delivery of a tube of grease for the drive shaft bearings.


I then watch World Cup rugby. Pretty good day.

    Great to see that the mighty boat can actually get out of the harbour and back. Looks to be great fun. That tube of grease is a bit eerie – looks more like some strange sea creature. Sunday’s forecast looks not too bad – another trip around the bay or beyond? Meanwhile that extra £250 a month should sort the drinks bill nicely – unless it is a bill?
