Where does time go?

Where does time go?

When I was a little girl my grandmother used to tell me when you got old, time went really quickly. Well, I soon realised at 18 it was already happening. Wait I thought, she said when you get old???? not now. Well now I am a lot older and you know it goes even quicker.

Christina has had her holiday and it seems like weeks since she left for the UK. Getting an upgrade on the way home too!!! Business class indeed. She says she can never fly Economy again!!! yeh right!!!!!!! Unless she wins the lottery that is exactly how she will have to fly. Ah well, I am sure it was good while it lasted.

I have been back to the Woodlands Resort for lunch and breakfast over the last couple of weeks. Really enjoyed the bacon, mozzarella and pesto sandwich on Friday.

We have both been to Joan’s for dinner and we have had friends over this weekend for dinner too. No wonder we are putting on so much weight!!!!! Food, food, food.

Yesterday we ate the left overs from the dinner party. So that’s all the  potatoes and the cake gone!!!! well including the large slice of cake I am eating as we speak….now it’s all gone. Back to healthy food from now on. Well, until the next time anyway.

We have been to look at a gym in the back of beyond which would be great for me as I wouldn’t have to fight with any traffic  into Pattaya, but I don’t think I could remember how to get there and once there, could I remember my way back??? It was well equipped and very quiet so that would suit me down to the ground. As David pointed out I have the sat nav but I as said, oh yes and she often takes me to Bangkok by mistake!!!!!! great eh??? I think she is one of these that has a warped since of humour….maybe computers do have a mind of their own.

I have been to Central Festival Department store to find that they have a new brand in their women’s ware’.” Island Shop”, is the name and it has larger sizes. It’s great. I tried on size 16 (UK size) to find them all too big. Great….he he….

Down to a 14 in their sizes anyway. So that made me feel better straight away. I even tried things on. I came away with one dress and two tops. I have spent months and months buying either nothing or cheap tops etc., to then find that a few weeks later they come out of the wash with holes in them!!!! So I am going to ensure I wash these items by hand.

They ordered a couple of dresses for me but alas only one arrived. I have spoken to a tailor and they say to bring the dress in and they will copy it. I wonder how much they will charge though. Won’t be as cheap as Bahrain for sure. I took one of my old summer dresses in and to get one made up the same it will be around 36 English Pounds!!!!! mmmmm…. we will see.

My Dyson broke and there is nothing like that here. My OH thought I was very sad getting so upset about a hoover but I know it can’t be replaced. There are no upright hoovers over here at all. I had to settle for an Electrolux cylinder vacuum in the end but it’s  no where near as good as my Dyson. Sob, sob.

I notice today that although the new vacuum is only a couple of weeks old it is already bruised and dirty.. I have cleaned it  but I think I will need Nok to interpret for me to my maid that it has to be looked after!!!!! There are brown scuff marks all over the head which indicates that she bangs it off the wood work and/or the furniture. No wonder I am always going around with the varnish touching up!!!!

The iron is broken too. That isn’t very old either. Just 3 or 4 years at the most. That’s two items broken. I wonder what the 3rd will be?????

Saturday was a good news day all around as my new friend has given birth to a baby boy 5lbs 6oz. Can’t wait to visit. Must go and buy a present.
