Strawberry Tart

IMG_7461_convert_20150224203423.jpg
I took this picture when I went to the countryside where my son's futsal games were held.
These days I've been busy because I have to go to see them every weekends.

By the way, I made a strawberry tart for a girl who has just passed a high school entrance exam.
I was very happy to hear the news. I hope she likes the cake I made.

Next month, March is a farewell season. And I'm getting nervous whether my family would move or not for my husband's job transfer.
Recently, a thirteen year old boy was killed along the river in Kanagawa prefecture. According to the news, he moved there a few years ago. When he had lived in Shimane prefecture, he seemed to be popular among his classmates.
If he didn't move, he wouldn't have been killed.
I was very sorry for him. And this insident is not a fire on the other side of the river. I'm worried about my son if we move.

It's breaking my heart, too

I've just read your latest post. Thank you for sharing your experience and thought. First: how delicious-looking the tart is! The girl must have been thrilled to see and eat it. Second: whether your family move or not, I sincerely hope your son is kept from harm with a strong support from you folks, as well as other people close to him. Finally, my heart really goes out to the bereaved family caught up in the abominable case you mentioned. I just pray that the justice be done swiftly and his soul rest in peace. Thank you for your attention.  英語教室 Lingo-Field (仙台)

Re: It's breaking my heart, too

Hi, LINGOSTIR

Thank you for your kind comment. Yes, I also hope my son will find good new friends and I'll watch him carefully if we move.
I often regard moving as negative, but I really know by myself that it also has a positive side.

*Unless they are no longer held there...then 'were' would be correct.

*Unless she will take more than one.

The month of March is our possible farewell season. I'm getting nervous as to whether or not my husband's possible job transfer will force our family to move once again.

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

As for 'This incident is not a fire on the other side of the river.',
I wanted to say that it's not another person's problem, and an incident like that could happen to my son.

Good Samaritan lookalke

「対岸の火事とは思えない」,「他人ごととは思えない」。
この文脈では I suppose we are no stranger to the abominable murder case. とか Such heinous crime seems so close to home that I can really identify with the tragedy/ I can really relate to the tragedy. とか What befell the poor boy could happen to anyone's child in this increasingly heartless world. ということでしょうか。よろしかったら,参考になさってみてください。
