What Day is it Anyway? Sunday, 20th September 2020

I cannot remember the last time I did one of these posts. In any case nothing much has got better in the UK, if anything it has got a lot worse. Honestly no one knows what the rules are anymore. Everyone was told to go back out in August to save the economy and given incentives like 50% off food in restaurants. Now all those people who did as they were advised are getting the blame for the rise in virus cases. It’s completely insane. Anyways, I’m just sticking to what I have been doing since it all began. Avoiding shops and any indoor public places. Getting a train only when absolutely necessary. I only see my immediate family now and I doubt that will change as things get worse again. Apparently there is going to be another announcement this week, which will result in more chaos and confusion I am sure!

My sister and nephew came over yesterday and we had a KFC for the first time since January thanks to Deliveroo! It was my nephew’s first time having one and he wasn’t impressed. He ate a few chips and then threw the rest of it to my cat! She was very excited that it had suddenly started raining mini fillet and chips!

I finally bought my air fryer that I have been wanting for a year on Tuesday! It arrived on Thursday but I haven’t been able to rest it yet as I have nothing to fry until my Asda order next Thursday oops! It looks really good though and seems very easy to use which is good!

I’m on Instagram now! A fellow author advised me to check it out and I did, and I love it! Here’s the link to my profile, yet me know yours in the comments so I can follow you back! https://www.instagram.com/shari_sakurai 

Today is going to be a rest day I think. I have a few bits to do on the dreaded ‘to do’ list which gets longer every time I tick something off somehow! Then I’m going to finish building my post office on Animal Crossing!



What Day is it Anyway? Sunday 12th July 2020

My Day:  I have a three day weekend this weekend, which I had completely forgotten about! I had booked Monday off because me and my sister were going to Hyper Japan in London, but that’s been moved to next year now. I didn’t bother cancelling the day as a three-day weekend is always welcome! Especially at the moment when my Perfect World muse is working overtime!

I’m on Chapter 21 now and this novel really is just writing itself now!  I spent much of today re-vamping the Perfect World website and I’m pretty pleased with how it came out. Everything seems to be a lot more organised there now. I’ve also been adding to the Pinterest Board for the series!

Yesterday was the fishing tournament in Animal Crossing so I spent much of the day doing that. I managed to get all the items and then duplicates too. CJ seemed to think I really liked the fish rug as I got 5 of that! I do like the rug, but a bit of variation would have been nice! I also redesigned my campsite as I had some new ideas for it. I keep thinking I have finished making over my Island and then find there’s more I want to do. It’s so much fun though and a good stress-reliever too!

Linda G. Hill came up with this great idea to keep track of the weeks and months ahead. For those who already are, and will be isolated in the coming weeks, it is important to all come together and support each other.

What Day is it Anyway? Friday 8th May 2020

My day: As today is a bank holiday, yesterday was technically the last day of my time off work. I’ve been working on trying to get all my novels formatted for print copies this week, which has been taking a lot longer than I thought it would. After me spending hours messing about with the cover, Demon’s Blood has gone back for a final proof before submission! I also started working on Demon’s Life. I thought I had finished it yesterday but I forgot to turn orphan control off so when I did at the end it upset all the pages so I have to look at it again now!

A large part of my week has also been taken up with Animal Crossing and today I thought I would share with you some screen-shots of my Island redevelopment so far! My Island is called Mallepa (the fictional city where my favourite Japanese vampire movie is set!) and I have called it Mallepa in every incarnation of Animal Crossing so of course I stuck with tradition this time too! I haven’t uploaded all of them as there is quite a few, but a selection of my favourite parts!

Mallepa Entrance

The entrance to Mallepa!


Mallepa Duck Pond

Mallepa duck pond! Those decoy ducks are so adorable and that you can customise them too makes them even cuter!


Mallepa Apple Orchard

This is going to be a woodland walk/apple orchard (once the apples have grown!) but it also serves as a horribly confusing maze for unsuspecting Island visitors!


Mallepa Play Park

Mallepa playground!
