It's taken me all of 2 weeks to become addicted to Home & Away and Neighbors again!!

I haven't watched either in about 15 years and most of the original characters have gone but there are a few faces I remember (Alf, Sally, Irene/Karl, Toadi, Sky who was a baby last time i saw) and it's all getting rather exciting. I remember both used to be miles behind in England so I don't know where you are up to now but here it turns out that Sky's bloke is not the father of the baby his brother is in Neighbors and in Home & Away some teenager's mother has been shagging her boyfriend!! Sad I know but what else is there to do when we are trying to save money cause we don't wanna go home yet!

Watching the news or reading the news paper is as depressing here as it is back home. In the last week there has been 4 stabbings, one shooting and a kiddie fiddler carted off to jail for life! As well as vandals smashing shop/restaurant windows. We just get to hear about it while enjoying the 90 degree heat with lots of sunshine, except for the last 2 days when it has pissed it down!!!!

So what else has been going on?

Well Ben isn't having much look on the job front which makes me think maybe we should move on. The diving jobs are badly paid if they are paid at all! Which reminds me that we caught up with Lucie (last week) from Koh Tao who has got herself a job on a Live Aboard (1 week on 1 week off) and Leigh will be here soon too so I'm sure there will be a few nights out on the piss!! So Ben is now looking at labouring work and a few bits are coming in so we will see how things go.

Bill & Lynn will be here on Friday and we are so looking forward to seeing them - we last saw them in Goa when we'd only been away 10 days! Now we've been away almost 8 months!!! And our Brian was booking his tickets to come out and see us in November and we can't wait to see him too we had such a blast in Phuket.

The house is still a bit mental and Tom has now joined us too though he seems to be a bit quieter than the rest of us. We are having far too many late nights' playing cards and just chatting.

Last night we all went ten pin bowling which was great fun and cost about 4 quid a game. We laughed loads and got told off quite a few times (see pics).

I will be updating some of the old entries as you can now weave pics into the text which looks cool so will be going through them all as and when i have time or a decent internet connextion.

Can't think of what else has been going on so I'm off for a wonder, see ya x x x
