We are expecting someone in a pick-up to come to our place at 08:30 to take our rice into the station in town to be sold.  By 09:30 he hasnt turned up so Jai goes to his house to see what is happening.  He has gone to a farm somewhere to cut sugar.  They phone him and he tells us not to worry as he hadnt forgotten us so apparently he just didnt care less that he was over an hour late now and that we were sat waiting for him !  He arrives at 10:00 and we load up 18 sacks into the back of his pick-up.  Jai goes into town with him whilst I follow on George's borrowed motorbike.
Once the rice deal is completed we bike to the bus station to buy our Bangkok tickets for Wednesday night but as we are now late the ticket office is closed until 18:00 tonight.  My last visit to Phon Thong now looks unlikely to be today !!
I drop Jai off at a salon to get her hair and nails done and head to the internet for an hour whilst I wait for her.
Update my travel blog for probably the last time before we are back in UK.
I go to collect Jai from the salon but find her still getting a pedicure so have to hang around for a while waiting ...
It is 13:00 by the time we get back to Khamnadie and lunch.
It is very hot again this afternoon but I force myself to do a few odd jobs around the house.
After eating this evening we walk to visit Jai's nephew's wife, Boo, and baby Yaya to ask her for a lift to the bus station in Phon Thong on Wednesday night.  We are in luck as the family also lend us a motorbike for tomorrow.
