As if to prove my point, it started spitting at lunchtime.
I forgot to mention earlier, that Michael dropped off some of Phil's stuff for me on Saturday morning. Some of it I can use, like the cheese grater and an extra pot. Also included were some food items, like more noodles and the all-important jar of Marmite!
My money still hasn't come through, so I still only have about 500 yen to my name. Why are international money transfers so frustrating. /sigh
