Summer 2017

Well we’re back in Bangkok after an amazing but totally hectic month back in the UK where as predicted we ate way too much, spent too much and drove too much! We caught up with friends and family, hung out with our dog, I accompanied one of my best friends in the world down the…

The UK round up

Jet lag has fully kicked in despite my best efforts which is why I find myself writing this post at 4.30am on a Sunday. Oh the joy. We have just got back from a wonderful 3 weeks with family and friends back in the UK and rather than give you a blow by blow account I…

Hello There 2016

Wow, what a wonderful few weeks we’ve had. Sorry for the lack of blogging but it has been somewhat of a whirlwind, packing then flying back to the UK just over 2 weeks ago straight into a flurry of Christmas activities, parties and preparation. Christmas at home in the countryside was lovely despite the rainy,…

Reunited BKK

This weekend my cousin, Singapore Cee, and her husband came to visit us here in Bangkok. I haven’t seen them since October when I was back in the UK for their wedding so was seriously excited about being reunited! Needless to say we had a crazy busy weekend filled with lots of eating and drinking……

The Best Delivery…

Today we received a package from England. We weren’t expecting anything so it came as somewhat of a surprise, a lovely surprise of course. Inside was what can only be described as the best delivery ever…two packets of Warburtons Giant Crumpets amongst other things but they were the absolute highlight, the gold dust if you…

Home: A Snapshot

So I’m back in Bangkok after a wonderful whirlwind 10 days back in the UK cramming in so many things. I am genuinely shattered but having brought friends back to BKK with me there’s no rest for the wicked and we are busy ‘Cooking with Poo‘ and doing bike tours of the city which I…

I’m Going Home…

Today I am flying back to the UK for the first time since leaving for Bangkok in December 2014. I wasn’t supposed to be going but I was absolutely gutted at the prospect of missing my cousins wedding, so back in April my lovely parents said they’d pay for my flight, amazingly I got an awesome return deal…

The List

Whilst we can get most things here in Bangkok, there will always be the odd thing we can’t or that we just miss! With that in mind I thought I’d share with you some of the slightly random things we have asked our visitors to bring out for us. Toothpaste Toothpaste here is terrible, there is…

Goodbyes.

Saying goodbye is truly the worst thing about living on the other side of the world. We had the most amazing 2 weeks with my parents and I can’t wait for them to visit again, we’re already planning on doing some proper island hopping with them next time, but actually saying goodbye at the departure…

The Teachers Twitch.

Last night Dave and I went out. For most people going out on a Tuesday evening for a meal or to the cinema probably isn’t that big a deal, for a teacher it’s a rarity. Back in England we never, ever went out in the week. The most exotic it got was to pop to my parent’s…

The big photo wall reveal.

We are not allowed to hang anything on the walls as we rent our condo (that’s what they’re called here!) so I have had to be creative in getting artwork and pictures into the apartment. A few weeks ago I told you I was working on a photo wall, well last night after finally buying…

Do something every day that scares you…

Moving to Thailand was a huge, life changing decision. A month in for me and 5 months for Dave and I’m already convinced we made the absolute right decision back in Easter 2014. When your living a happy, comfortable life with your family on your doorstep, incredible friends, your own house, dog and great job…
