On new year’s day / 元旦

帰国後、いけばなに行ったら、先生が「あなたはいつも、”出たり入ったりして” 本当に忙しそう」と、おっしゃるので、その表現に笑ってしまいました。

I just returned from almost 2 weeks in Europe to participate in a leadership program.
On New Year’s Day I spent more than 14 hours in an airplane.
After my return, I went to a Japanese flower arrangement class.
My flower arrangement teacher told me that you are always busy because of “in and out” of Japan.
I laughed at that expression “in and out”.
