|6.12am, no snow to be seen|
The weather forecast last night suggested snow might fall overnight, and certainly it was feeling that cold. I haven't seen snow for a while so got up at 6.12am to have a peak outside...alas, no, not this morning.

We didn't plan to go much beyond Ikebukuro today, plenty to see and do there. Our final stop on the shopping day was the Tobu department store. We lived on the Tobu line, so it just makes sense to shop in the Tobu department store (yes, the posher Seibu is next door, but that's a different train line...it's tribal, like football). I do tend to spend a bit of time in this department store, my usual bookshop is here too and I can usually get something nice for mum here. It's all I need really. Anyway, we were hesitating about appropriate gifts for different purposes.
We were getting close and planning an exit shortly (before 6.00pm) until we bumped into a former professor from our old university. That was a nice chat. Gave me a good photo-op at 6.12pm though...decisions, decisions...
