Day 18. Here we are, yet another day in paradise and the sun's still shining. Not planned to do a great deal today except to visit a restaurant that someone had recommended in the visitor's book in the villa so it was a leisurely breakfast then swim and read (kindles everywhere) and sunbathe. One faction decided they would go for a walk and others decided they were mad as it was about 30 c at the time. While they were away an old friend paid us a visit and made itself at home, it's a dog's life.

The restaurant, Blue's Blue's, was superb: typical Thai style, with a hint of the Orient, outdoors, under the trees, a bit shacky (made that up but you know what I mean) and the food was fabulous, fish, shrimp,veg, rice and a bit of heat.

Hazel ici - un petit peu en francais. Je m'excuse pour n'avoir pas faire - mais je crois les photos dire presque tous. Norman et moi avons ete tellement emu lundi quand nous avons visite l'ecole - les enfants et les professeurs etaient si heureux et reconnaissant - c'est grace a vous tous qui avez soutenu Tilac Ben

It must like it here
- merci beaucoup.

Hier, nous avons loue un bateau et navigue a Koh Rom - c'etait ciel bleu, mer bleu, calme et tranquille. Nous avons coupe les moteurs, reduit l'ancre et ont passe quelques moments reflechissant. J'ai nage avec Ben et lui dit tout sur l'ecole et terrain de football.

Notre vie ici est simple (ok ok villa avec petit piscine et mer en face) Chaque matin nous irons dans le village locale et achetons des fruits (ananas, mangues, papayes, bananes, pasteques, mangosteen) pour notre petit dejeuner - les legumes que nous cuisinons Thai Style avec d'ail, citron vert, lemon grass, piment, feuilles de kaffir - aussi du poulet, des encornets (frais du pecheur) et des grands crevettes - le riz et nouilles - simple, pas cher, mais delicieuse.

Le vin cout trop ici - nous buvons le Singh (biere) - nous ne mangeons pas de la viande (apart d'un petit peu du poulet) - heureusement pas de la viande de cheval ici......

Enjoying yourselves ??
Well there are 5 Chickens in Hoghton who hope you are !! Its cold here grubbing about in the snow for a few seeds. Take a tip from us- when you do finally take off your holiday hats and get on a plane to come home, put on your vests, long johns and cardigans for the taxi trip from Manchester. Brace yourself for the icy blast. Luv n stuff (but not sage and onion) Les Girls PS our wild birdie friends have turned their beaks up at the fat balls you left- we told them not to be so fussy.
