December Schedule (Edited)
Hope you are all well and keeping safe and warm.
Today, England comes back to tiered system of Covid restrictions, so the shops can reopen.
We are coming back on 3rd December (Thu). (But we are closed on 4th Devember (Fri))
Naoko works on Tuesdays and Sundays in December.
Ryoko works on Monday, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
From January, both of us are in the salon on Saturdays, we are closed on Sundays.
We are almost fully booked for a week and
we have more availabilities after 15th December.
For Christmas and New Year, we are closed between 25th and 27th December, 31st December and 3rd January.
The reason we were closed on 4th December (Fri) is that I have been in Japan since the second lockdown started and flew back to the UK on 4th December. (Naoko can't come in on Fridays)
Some of you might think that I am mad flying and taking risks.
But I knew I can't mentally survive the second lockdown.
Luckily, the flight to Osaka was very quiet, I had 3 seats for myself, so it was very comfortable. (Wearing a mask all the way didn't bother me too much. I guess I am used to it as we have been wearing it all this time in the salon..)
I took Covid test on arrival, I waited for about 40min, got negative result and good to go home.
I still had to stay home for 2weeks for precaution.
My parents live in a quite large house with a garden, so it wasn't too bad.
The weather was so warm and the garden needed looked after, so I was there everyday!
Waiting to hug my nephew and neice for 2weeks was hard, though!!
I didn't meet many friends this time just in case, but managed to see some friends to catch up, which was really nice.
But mostly, I stayed in my home city and walked a lot.
There are mountains and it was really beautiful with autumn colours. ↓
I haven't spent time with my family this long for so many years, so I am really happy I made the decision to come back.
Thank you always for your support and hope to see you soon.
