I go out to water the back garden which got missed last night but the water pressure is so low that I give up.
Jai is waiting out the front of the house for the monks to pass so that she can give them an offering for good luck on her birthday.
We bike across the village to youngest brother Pad's house to invite them to come for a beer tonight then I take Jai to see Norng Fin
I bike into Phon Thong to check up on the sports results and update this blog. Amongst other things I am under instruction to go and buy a 2m length of material for edging of the mats-I get all of the good jobs. Whilst in town I thought that it might be a good idea to buy Jai a birthday present, well, theres no point in rushing these things is there ?
When I left the village acoupleofchaps were putting a ladder up on the village 'gate' and upon my return I find that it is dressed
Jai spends the morning with friend Wan preparing the ducks she isgiving her then they came back to our house to finish them off and cook them. I go to the village shop and stock up on beer etc.
Late afternoon I go out to the farm to water the trees then come back in timeto have a quick shower before people start to arrive and I am allowed to start to water myself.
Mum phones to wish Jai a happy birthday but the phonesignal at the house isso bad it is impossible to have a conversation.
People start arriving about 17:30and we end up with about 30 sat around in the garden and, mainly, on the floor in the kitchen. Too much beer was drank by all and I think that everyone had a good time. Judging by the number of empties we had to clear up after they all left they must have done !!
