At that point, I realised that I hadn’t parallel parked at ALL since I took my driving test! How weird, if I lived in the U.K., I would have to do it all the time, but here there is less occasion to have to park on the side of the road, or to be allowed to The space was pretty tight, and Yusuke was twitching in the passenger seat, so when I asked him if he wanted to do it, I think we were both quite relieved
After a few minutes of trying to squeeze the car into the space, I suddenly watched him drive out and slot into a normal space that had since been left by another car Yay!
The blossoms at the park were so pretty. We found a sunny spot and sat and ate. Hannah hadn’t had her usual morning nap, so she was manic with sleepiness She found it endlessly fun to chase after her little ball down a slope. Yusuke thought it was great exercise, but I worried that she would get more tired out and crochety (which is of course what happened…)
After a while we decided to go and see the spring display. Gunma has spent a lot of money this year on flower parks. Lots of beautiful flowers, fountains, greenhouses, etc. It’s so pretty that I hope they keep it well maintained Yusuke mentioned that they might only have it there for this year, which would be such a waste!
Later that night, we watched a DVD Catch and Release, which was a really good “feel-good” movie. I was annoyed that the night before we had rented “No Reservations” and it turned out to be a remake of “Mostly Martha”, a German film that I love. The remake was ok, I suppose, but a bit Hollywood.. If you haven’t seen either, I would definitely recommend Mostly Martha
