Oh the songs that run through your brain when you’re facing the possibility of radiation coming your way.
This is all a bit of a nightmare really, trying to decide what to do for the best.
I think right now where we are ( West) we are safe for the time being, but personally I think things will get worse.
Personal update is, am cancelling tickets for India trip, a trip which I’ll say was probably doomed from the start considering we started off planning to go to the middle -east and it imploded, and now this, if the universe doesn’t want Ditoh and I to holiday together it only had to say so, no need for the dramatics!!
So will go somewhere, possibly a road trip head south west in Japan, possibly another Asian country with my sons, while The Man makes contingency plans to leave with the girls if necessary, possibly a longer term, get far away for a while plan.
I have to say I really feel for my friends in the East who have to try to make these decisions after little sleep, constant after shocks, power outages etc…. will see how the next few days go.
My friends who were supposed to visit cancelled but one of them’s son was working in Tokyo and he has evacuated here, so he is eating all the scrummy food I bought for their visit, I like the symmetry, keeping it in the family.
Can’t get the workers off my mind, the people working in the reactors!!
Some wonderful stories of survival coming out though, a man 6 miles out to sea clutching a piece of his house, a three month old baby…. what an azaing job these rescue workers do, they’ve certainly had thier work cut out recently, globally!
