Just before Christmas I passed my 6th kyu Karate test.
I also passed Part 1 (of 6) of the CLAIR Beginners Japanese Course. I'm retaking it because I failed last year for sending in a result too late. Oops.
After submitting photos for the JET Calendar Competition last July I'm pleased to say one of my pics has been selected for the 2011 Calendar. My "Snow tree" pic, taken last January in Nozawaonsen is the photo for January. I was rather chuffed to walk into school last week and see the teachers had put a copy of the calendar up with a congratulatory note. Thankyou Vice-Principal.
