I am very pleased to say that I have finally, finally adapted to this bloody time change here in Tokyo. It only took a week, good Gods. Guess that means it'll take a week to recover on the other end, too. Oh joy.

My mother, on the other hand, has gone about business like it was nothing else. I thought the sheer size of Tokyo would overwhelm her (and it certainly did to me, the first time I really experienced the number of people that are packed into this city), but she has honestly been dragging me around. I'm a little frightened by this version of my mother, I think! In a good way, of course. I'm really happy to get to spend time with her. And my brother, sister-in-law and nephew, who are also here. Even though Ainsley plays for The Enemy.

The weather's not what I'm used to, but other than that, I really do love Japan. I'm sure Fabian would have liked it here, too. Hopefully we'll win a match for you. It's a beautiful country, and I'm pleased I've gotten to see a few of the sights in between practices and meetings and all of the official things.

And as always, GO IRELAND.

I can't wait to play some Quidditch.
And I can't wait to watch you play some Quidditch.
Your mother is scary.

Not as scary as the time change, but still scary.
I swear to Merlin she is not usually not this.
The time zone change is one thing I'm not looking forward to.
Just be prepared, is all! You may think you've got it figured out, but then WHAM, you realise you're falling asleep into your lunch.
I think I'll figure it out.

Good luck on your first match.
Hopefully it won't take you as long as it took me.

Thanks! I hope things are okay back home?
