school school

There is the Royal School of Needlework which is a popular embroidery school in Hampton Court Palace UK.I took the Intensive Summer Certificated Course during July and August 2004.

There were 3 japanese girls in my class.So it relieved me from sorrow.However I spoke Japanese in the school and kept quiet during stitching.I went to my Japanese old friend's home in weekend.My English has not improved much.

I was tired because I'm not so young.But,I was satisfied to do the wonderful experience like a young student.

I was crying when I was leaving Narita airport because I would miss my husband and my pets.A couple of months later,I thought I'd like to stay in the UK more.

People often say that there are some ghosts in Hampton Court Palace.I couldn't see them.Most Japanese are afraid of ghost.Do you know Japanese ghost movie?They are very terrifing.I think the English are not more afraid of ghost than Japanese.English might think that ghost will be big business.

School life

school

I bought a sandwich near the school every morning.
Sometimes I met my classmate who has 23 cats and 3 dogs and went to the school with her.
The class started at 10 am.
We had a tea break at 11 am and could taste good biscuits.
We enjoyed lunch at 1 pm.
I like some soups in the garden cafe.
We called it a day at 4 pm.
I often enjoyed shopping for some antiques and have a tea with my classmate after school.
I bought many antique things because I love them.
I hope my husband forgives me.

I recollect walking on the riverside,shopping at TESCO,talking with the cat...etc.

Tutors

school

I think that basically the English are kind and rational.Every tutor taught embroidery to me with zeal.There were tutors who had good sense,good teaching skill,friendly mind,excellent stitch....etc.
Needless to say,I'm well content with the school.

Classmate

school

These days,a Korean drama(Winter Sonata) is popular among Japanese ladies.I expected that I could meet Korean classmates in this school and talk about the Winter Sonata with them.Unfortunately,I couldn't meet any Korean classmates.There were English,American,Australian,Canadian and Japanese who love embroidery seriously in my class.I think that everyone except me live highclass.At the last school of day,we enjoyed a tea party in a riverside cafe.They were very kind,so I give thanks to them.

Hardship

school

We can choose a lunch among many things in Japan.For example,cooked bread,buckwheat noodle,Chinese,Japanese set lunch,sushi,delivery lunch box.....etc.
Japanese lunch is really full of variety.But,I couldn't get that in the UK.
