This was the view i had for most of the day
This blog will be out of sequence.

"Here I sit lonely hearted . . . . . ." to coin a childhood poem.

7,000 km from anyone I know with 6 people who can hardly string a complete sentence together in English between them. (all but one have disappeared on their daily routines anyway).

There's no (reliable) internet,
1 viewable TV channel and that's in TAGALOG,
it's raining so I can't go outside
and one of the dogs has just walked into the bedroom and pissed on my sandals.

This "holiday" has hit a new low point. Might go and pay that penny now . . . . . .

Later in the day, I went to Sonya's Secret Pleasures at Sonya's Garden and had a Hot Stone Massage. . . . They heat some largeish river pebbles in a rice cooker, dip them in masssage oil and run them all over your body.

The stone are highly polished and very smooth - not to mention quite hot. At one stage I felt something smooth and hot slide up the leg of my shorts . . . . . this surprised

. . . then there was this
me a little because the guy massaging me had both hands on my shoulders . . . . . 8-O

(only joking Joyce)
