Up at 05:00 which can never be a good way to start Christmas day or any other day come to that.  I turn on the fairy lights, aahh, Jai starts the rice steaming whilst I brew a cuppa then she goes out for a run with the lady next door.  Yes, I will just say that again, Jai goes out for a run with the kady next door !!!!   I stand by the gate with a cup of tea and watch them jog up and down past the house for about 10 minutes.  She will regret thuis later no doubt.
Still dark but Jai decides that it is a good time to start baking as she is on cake detail for tonights party.  Jai actually sold 10 currant buns to a neighbout last night for just over 1GBP and the same lady may be in the market for a birthday cake later.
An announcement comes over the village PA system and Jai heads off with one of her sisters to complete yet more paperwork on the off chance of gewtting some money back on her rice.
Go to George's for partytime at about 16:00 and meet another Engligh guy from a neighbouring village, John, who is joining us tonight.  Other farangs include Alvin from USA and Gerry from Switzerland.  Manage to get in a phone call to Um at Carols before the drink takes charge.  We all drink lots of beer and I sing lots of Karaoke, honestly, couldnt get the microphone off me.  I offered to sing something if they could find something in English, someone shouted what about Led Zeppelin and efore you knew it a near perfect rendition of Stairway To Heaven was splitting the village night sky complete with an excellent - even if I do say so myself - air guitar solo !!!!
