I am still sober and pretty much settled into my new home.
The ‘spare bedroom’ is chock-a-block full of stuff that needs to be unpacked and stored away, but the rest of the house is now spick and span and everything in its place.
I have done everything completely by myself and I haven’t had a single visitor.
As yet I haven’t even hired a maid.
Yesterday I was up and about early in Pattaya, doing some shopping, paying bills, running some errands and in the afternoon, I had a good session with my therapist. We touched on a few issues which I will write about in a day or so.
I spent the late afternoon and evening watching the Ryder Cup which was a very exciting and an emotionally draining experience. Thank God we edged it at the death, or I might have been tempted to drown my sorrows. In my opinion, the Ryder cup is one of the most thrilling sports events anyone can ever watch, and it is just made for TV viewing. There are so many breathtaking moments; so many highs and lows as your side either makes a fantastic shot, or just misses a put. The whole match is played in such a good spirit and with the greatest respect for the opposing team. I feel sorry for the Americans who played brilliantly and carried themselves with the utmost dignity at all times.
This evening I will get my dogs back at long last, so I am really looking forward to it. It was starting to look as though Dang wasn’t going to let me have them after all, but after a few days of prevarication she has finally told me I can go and get them. Then I discovered that my front gate wasn’t ‘dog proof’, so today I had to buy some plastic netting and attach it to the bottom of the gates so that the shih tzus can’t get out, and also so that street dogs can’t get in.
I think when I bring my dogs home today, there is going to be one hell of a kerfuffle, as my house is bordered with other houses that also keep dogs in their gardens, to say nothing of the soi dogs which my golden always treats with utter disdain. It will be fun and games for sure.
I am sort of ‘ticking over’ on my blog for a few days as I spend most of my time settling to my new home and new life. Maybe in a couple of days I will get back to proper blog production.
Many thanks for all the kind comments that I have received over the past week or so.
