Jomtien, 25th November, 2009

Today I have been sober for 87 days.


Here is a short update in response to those who have urged me to try and write a little every day.

Tonight I flew back to Bangkok, met up with my new girl friend at the airport, (she had just flown in from Surat Thani), picked up my car which was parked in the airport car park, and drove back to Pattaya.

The condo was still there in one piece after my 10 day absence, and I must say it’s good to be “home” and it’s even better to have someone here to keep me company.  On a previous occasion when I went away after leaving my wife, and subsequently returned to Pattaya all alone, the yearning to go home and make another go of it became  irresistible.

This time I have my little lady to keep my mind off things, and it’s all working well. I will hold strong this time.

Yesterday, my appointed “go between” finally met with my wife (after she had postponed the meeting several times as she was still in Bangkok getting drunk)), and negotiations are proceeding in a positive direction.

More tomorrow.

  1. glad to hear all is proceeding positively with you, mobi, even though i’ve never met you. from the picture you’ve painted of your wife, i sincerely hope that you are able to cut her off with little, if any, financial compensation. hopefully, your marriage isn’t registered in thailand and, if it is, then you’ve kept most of your assets out of the country (apologies for commenting on such a personal matter – it’s just that stories of conniving thai women (and foreign men, for that matter), don’t sit well with me).

    1. Thank you for your comments and concerns. My marriage is registered here, and apart from the house and contents (which cost a great deal of money) all my remaining assets are outside Thailand. Yes, I’m afraid she has been rather a conniving woman, and she has taken me for literally millions, which shall all be recounted as I get into my “Retirement Years” blog. As they say, there’s no fool like an old fool. Anyway, I may have finally learned my lesson, and yes, I have cut her off. I am now arranging to pay the house utilities and upkeep via a third party, and that is the only money that is going in that direction.
