Out and about

Out and about

The last two weeks have been a mixture of events and outings.

We have had people here for dinner and BBQ’s and also had the favour returned. I have bought myself a few items of clothing. Always nice to buy something new.

We have been to the Sea Falcon at Na Jomtien that was nice, worth a trip and very cheap. Right on the beach front with a really good breeze. We have also visited the Dusit Thani for morning coffee and the Lakeside Restaurant for a typical hearty sandwich. Pity we were the only ones there as it was really good value for money. More about it on the Dining pages later this week.

My friend has had her baby, 5lb 6oz and I hopefully will get to visit this week and have a cuddle of him myself. Yesterday we popped out to buy gifts for when I get a date to visit. The baby things are so cute, It think my OH was getting quite worried that I was getting broody!!!

I had coffee with Wendy on Friday. We went to the Village Shopping Centre on Shukumvit Road. It was only just after 10am and not a lot of places where open. We sat outside with a nice little breeze while enjoying a nice cup of coffee at a cafe which I did not get the name of. I do intend to go back and sample the food as they had both outside and inside dining area’s and it was a good price for coffee.

Then off we went to Foodland for the weekly shop. I was having some children come over on the Saturday and a request had been made for ice cream. I was really pleased that Foodland gave me a freezer bag for my ice cream. What a great idea. I did wonder if it would be defrosted by the time I got home. I will now keep this bag in the car for future purchases for the freezer.

The children came over Saturday and we had a lovely time in the pool and Jack our pup was really good with them. What grown up children there are really as we had explained about the No touch, No speak, No eye contact for grumpy Jack and they did just that. They even came armed with treats to make friends. Of course he swam for them as they were holding the treats out in front!!! A good day to be had by all. Made a lovely change for us to be around children. The chocolate cake went down well too.

Sunday came around and a trip to the shops for the baby present and some paint!!! strange combination eh?? OH got HomePro to mix some paint for touch up areas in the house while I went to find the antibacterial wipes!!! very sad I know.

Downstairs we had our lunch time treat of a kebab (in Bahrain known as a swarma). Only 59bhat. Polished off with a nice drink of old fashioned lemonade from the Aunty Anne franchise. We had already stopped for coffee at Starbucks when we went to the IT Mall for some software for OH.

Today is the vets visit for Molly, Tess and Jack. I have to go back and collect Jack at 6pm. I have posted all about this on the Pets in Thailand Page.

Molly and Tess had a full health check and are sleeping the day away now in peace and quiet. Goodness knows what tonight will hold when Jack returns. Bless his little cotton socks. I do hope he will be OK and settle down now.

Wow has just turned the sprinklers on so it must be time for me to go get another coffee. I was late having my breakfast today so I don’t think I will need lunch. Mind a piece of  chocolate cake might be a good idea instead!!!!

Still have not found my way to the gym yet???? I must make an effort. Too easy to do nothing once you get on this internet……..

The sad news this last week was that my mum’s brother died. It’s times like these that you realise you are so far away and you can’t be there in an instant. I just wanted to comfort her and be there for her. To cuddle her and let her weep. It must be awful loosing your sibling. I couldn’t imagine it. The funeral will be held later this week. He was a great man and had achieved so much in his life. I am sure there will be an article about his life in his local paper there after. May he rest in peace.
