I Can't Believe I'm Not Healthy

I have been sneezing for two days and my eyes are half-shut. My bones ache. I hardly ever get colds but that's two in 3 months ! I blame the parents, who are visiting. I wish it was Summer, and we've hardly begun Winter. The cold mornings seem worse when you wake up in the dark at 6.30 am. I don't want to live in this country, I want to live in a hot country.

Last year more than 200,000 Brits left Old Blighty and the number one reason given was: more sunlight. I can see how that works. I am going to follow suit as soon as I can, strolling to the beach for breakfast, drinking juice from fresh-picked citrus fruit, enjoying what remains of this precious earth while I am still walking around in my bit of it (this body). Otherwise I will have to live in a big coat which I never take off and which smells of damp, and cuddle old iron pipes for comfort, like the Russians do. My house will be made of old fridges and I will eat spinach all the time, turning my teeth green. My legs will turn completely white and the hairs on them will mat together in dreads.

I want white teeth, brown legs, and Bermuda shorts. I must go and live further South as soon as possible.

But...but...just a few days ago you were saying that I didn't need to soak up too much UV before my move to your country. You said the sun does shine there, and that it does get hot. What's all this complaining now?

****, no! I can't bear hot climates, and dislike strong daylight, so I'm more likely to emigrate to Iceland or Norway, following my father who did exactly that in 1975!

I want a sunny place that is warm but not too hot. Cool but not overly freezing. Gobs of plants, forests and gorgeous tropical foliage, beaches to walk and romp, short drives to mountains with snow covered peaks. Now I say is that too much to ask? Find this place and let's all go!

To Kate: New Zealand, north of Auckland. You'll have to drive a bit for the snow-capped mountains, but hey, there's always a downside.

So what am I doing in Japan? YOU MAY WELL ASK.
