A waiting Kendoka

Kai doing Kendo in the garden

Kai was lonely.

His brother had gone to Japan to learn from the top Sensai and was due to return any day! Kai waited by the door (in Seiza of course) on the day he was due to arrive, but the doorbell never rang. It turns out, Kai’s brother had posted himself back to the UK and was lost in the postal system!

All Kai really wanted someone to fight with at Kendo again. All the other Kendoka were far bigger than him, and it scared him to go to the dojo alone! (Although being strong of heart and mind, he went anyway!)

Kai will keep waiting for his brother to show up. He must be somewhere in the system, waiting to escape from the envelope!

In the meantime, Kai is practicing some Suburi in the garden so he can show his brother how much he has improved whilst he has been away!

Story book (a summer project) – Status report

Summer holidays.

What a great moment of the year. I really hope you are enjoying yours.

Like every year, the summer season is one of the busiest time of the year at work, for me. This June/July did not fail to be so.

And since I don’t have any child, I tend to take my summer holidays in June or September. What a delight to be on vacation when everyone is back at the office. :-)

This time, in September, there is the Edinburgh toy safari planned followed by a trip to Denmark (but more on that later on the blog).

Don’t get me wrong, I will have a short break this August during which I will drive to the South of France, to visit my parents.  Continue reading “Story book (a summer project) – Status report”



Across the Ninjago Madness of the last few days, one can easily loose focus. And that is what this month’s word is all about. Focus. A new month. And a new word in our series of words this year.

A definition.

So, what does focus actually means? According to Merry, focus is a point of convergence of a beam of particles. Ouch.
That did not really help.
A convergence of beans.

Special Report: Invasion in Britain started

Special Report: We continue our breaking news series on the disappearing Ninjago models.  Our reporter on shore, Ian Cockayne, has spotted what seems to be a #Brexin instead of a #Brexit.  He reports straight from his undercover position using an old school long wave radio. Hence the short twitter style like post on what seems to be an ongoing invasion. An invasion of little plastic creatures listening to the code name Ninjago.

We just got breaking news (we can’t say if it is fake, alternative or just plain plastic) but a yet to be identified woman wearing a name badge with the name Koko imprinted was seen in panic mode tweeting inside the detective’s office while gesticulating about top models, raw fish and other breaking news, making the brickies of our little town stop outside the detective office and look up.   Continue reading “Breaking News: LEGO Ninjago Models Mysterious Disappear”
