Homesick


 I have nearly finished another stitchery gee I think I am going to be very busy finishing off these projects when I get home.I am starting to get homesick,missing my family especially the grandies,❤️❤️❤️

Had a chuckle when I saw these toilet signs near the pool,lol

 No chance of getting the toilets muddled up no matter what country you come from,lol.

 We watched a guy climb these coconut trees and get the coconuts down,you might be able to just see him at the top of the tree.

This is the view from our balcony,there are lots of these make shift huts about.

I couldn't get over all the homes that were built in their mountains,we are off to Patang for the day shopping,can't wait to finds things for the grandies ,family and friends.Cheers shez xx

 We see lots of these little temples around at houses and shops,had a chuckle when I saw that they had drink bottles there as well.

 We saw this beautiful old dodge truck lovingly  restored

 Some beautiful statues and water fountains in this shop.

 This is the local park and the way to the beach and these huge lanterns light the way,hanging in the trees,they looked like a full moon from a distance.

 We came back from a lovely tea and had a dip in the pool,just the thing we needed to cool us down.We are catching a taxi and going to Patong tomorrow,so another wonderful day in Thailand.cheers shez xx

Market night


 I have 4 stitchery's finished now and have just started a Gail Pan design.

This is the local ATM machine  and it poured rain yesterday for about 1/2 hr while we were walking to the market,when it rains it pours,lol.

 I got quite a bit of stitching done yesterday  between having a dip in the pool .

 We bought some yummy food at the market,this is some mango sticky rice,so yummy we got some pieces of pork on a stick that had been marinated in soy and honey and then BBQ,so yummy and so cheap only 10 Baht which is about 35 cents in our money,I also bought some custard donuts,oh the food over here is so nice.

We had  a lovely lady that offered to take a pic of us both,we spent all morning and up to 2 o' clock around the pool that's why I got so much stitching done.cheers shez xx
