Also, regarding the jammies. Japanese culture is again, very different. When we used to go to the huge park with the fountain, mine were the only ones running through the water with shorts and shirts on. The rest, some as old as 6 or 7, were absolutely naked.
Is pre-school now compulsory? Or is there another reason to separate so early?

Hmm. I don't want to discount this but I'm not sure how he would have come into contact with it. We live on the prairie. I've never seen a tick around us. Maybe he ate something that had it? But even that seems rather unlikely. Who knows though.

In Japan what happens is you have one coloured basket you do your shopping in and then once the cashier checks it out they put it straight into another coloured basket and then you pay and take that to the tables set up for you to pack your shopping into bags.

The main problem is that Japanese companies all tend to collaborate and have standard sizes for everything. So my kitchen unit would happily accommodate the Panasonic. Should be an easy fit. The Miele would not fit easily, would require the counter to be raised (which I actually need doing because i'm tall) and then also need all sorts of adjustments. Whilst we will get the counters raised eventually, finding all the money for all the things that need doing in the case that we choose miele is such a lot and I'm not sure we'll have time before Christmas. My husband knows I had my heart set on the miele but I think we just can't afford it. We also need the garden doing and that costs a LOT here. I'll probably have a go at building raised beds and herb spirals but I can't dig up concrete nor build fences. Can you believe though that just those things would cost almost ¥1 million yen. Why are things so expensive here?! 😭 the garden is probably only 30-50m2 as well 😅
Anyway the garden is sort of our priority as we have a 2 and 5 year old that want to be outside and I have chores to do inside so need something secure and safe.
Sorry again i'm going off on a tangent...
