Sai is around before 06:00 to collect the completed form, that isnt completed yet.
Cant face my weekly visit to Phon Thong for the internet this morning so clear the garden of the weeds that have accumulated instead.
No mains water this morning ...
... lunchtime get-together. John isnt feeling too good, George still isnt drinking and I am only allowing myself one beer but we still manage to put the world to rights.
In the evening I water the garden for the last time and burn off all accumulated rubbish.
We finish with a ride out to the farm to check on the ride which is now ...
... and fried rice fits the bill well.
After lunch we empty the bag and I add the new books to my 'library' then return for a stretch out in the back garden.
Dont move too much the rest of the afternoon until the sun has dropped when I cut up some bamboo to make supports for the growing peppers and Jai puts out the smaller plants that were left over before.
Feel really tired tonight which I put down to the uncomfy return bus trip and maybe a bit too much sun.
... find Pad trying to catch up on his sleep with Jai wandering around the paddies regulating the flow of water between fields.
I start a fire of the grass I have been clearing and spend the next hour or so topping it up whilst keeping it small to stop it burning the adjacent palm trees.
They decide that there is now enough water in the fields so before we leave tonight we take the pump apart and load it up on Pad's dak-dak. ...
... from the old river, now little more than a narrow brook, that runs behind the rice fields. This is better than draining the farm pond although I guess they will have to use that later to do the fields on this side of the farm.
I bike back to Khamnadie to get some more petrol for the pump then after topping up leave Pad there and head back to the house with Jai.
