Bike into Phon Thong and drop Jai off at the hairdressers for a good going over. I go on to the internet figuring that I have plenty of time to spare.
No reply at all from the British Embassy confirming our visit there on Thursday - worrying.
Watch the weekends 6 Nations highlights which bare actually quite good for a change.
Pay for our reserved guest house in Bangkok, book coach from Heathrow to home for 25th and I think I am pretty well up to date - except for Embassy !!! Coincidentally, they sent me a questionnaire to fill out about the service they provide but I have been keeping it until this is all finished
I am sat in the back garden at Khamnadie when I hear a lot of noise coming from next door. Going to investigate I find a snake trapped under the stairs by an angry looking dog. I dont know snakes but take the simple option of presuming them all to be poisonous. This one has its head raised off the ground and fanned out like a cobra but ... Someone distracts the snake with a long stick and the dog moves in for the kill, taking a bite for his trouble by the way he starts rubbing his head in the dirt afterwards. Result; dog 1 v 0 snake. Took a short video but as I was quite a long way off and shooting through a window - well, safety first (ignore the young boy in the video who is not scared at all !!).
Later Jai is sat on the floor next to me preparing something in a bowl and I can hear strange noises coming from a bag next to her. She is de-winging etc what can only be described as cockroaches. A bit of a delicacy around here that they have no worries about me stealing !
Visit village shop for a few more stone blocks and some empty boxes for us to pack stuff away in.
Make my weekly phone call to mum - only one more left ...
