Christmas gifts

On the 23rd, I got some Christmas gifts.

I missed having the Christmas dinner followed by lebkuchen at my aunt’s house, which I used to have every Christmas day until last year. This year, I ordered two boxes of lebkuchen to be sent from Germany to my house in England. The delivery date was supposed to be the 28th, but the parcel came to my house this morning.

At noon, my landlord came to my place to install some blinds on the windows. My room hadn’t had any curtains/blinds since I moved here in September, which was a bit frustrating. After contacting him about it several times, he agreed to set it up for free.

At 13 pm, a guy from a furniture assembly service came, and he assembled all the pieces of my new furniture for me: desks, chairs and a bookcase, which I also hadn’t had since September. So, my room is finally all set up after three months have passed.

After my landlord finished installing the blinds, I served him some tea and lebkuchen. We had a good chat. I talked about my normal Christmas, my family in Japan and my studies, and he talked about his friends who study Japanese and about some religious topics. I found that he is very friendly.

These were great Christmas gifts. Now I can start my studies and work at home from today.
