Thank you for all the comments, and for all the advice about getting a mortgage. I went to another bank this week. Their interest rate was a tiny bit lower than the first bank I went to, but there were a lot of conditions attached to it. When the time comes, I will apply to both and then choose the one that suits me best.
Here is some feedback on your comments:
I know exactly what you mean!
This is a useful sentence to memorise if you don’t know it.
Although we both had nothing to be ashamed of,
Although neither of us had anything to hide,

Congratulations! I hope you like the new smartphone layout.
David, I’m glad to hear you had a nice time in Australia.
Thanks, and nice sentence.

Could you please put the site here which we can check your books like Amazon site,

Second, not to work hard…
From reading your comments, I would say you failed in that resolution last year quite spectacularly!
I have gained weight since last year,
“Gain weight” is okay, but “put on weight” is more common.
Thank you for asking about my books (English and Japanese are written side by side).
Are any of your books available as e-books? I would like to get one for my Japanese studies.
If you keep studying English, someday you can speak English
…someday you will be able to…
Thank you for telling us information about your books.

>By the way, are there many vegetarians/vegans in
Not only are there not many vegetarians in Japan, most Japanese people don’t really understand the meaning of the word. I have a lot of vegetarian friends who say Japanese people often tell them things like “But it’s not meat – it’s bacon.” They have no idea about things like meat stock, so most vegetarians who come to Japan find that they have to either cook all their food themselves or allow their standards to slip when they eat out.
I’m always choosey about what I buy.
That’s all for today. I’m going to join a new sports club tonight. I went the other day, but I couldn’t join because I didn’t have my inkan with me. I hate the stupid inkan system! The sooner Japan gets rid of this 15th century technology, the better.
Have a great weekend.
