Deep Deep Winter

I got to admit that Nuch is coping well with the cold. Bearing in mind that the lowest temperature she had come across before the UK was about 19C, then the temps these last few days should have done her in.

She was amazed to see her breath in the cold, I tried to convince her it was a sign of bad breath!

Obviously she as got too cope with the first frost, then ice and then maybe snow. That should be good for a laugh.

Crazy Aussie swims naked

Here's another story from Pattaya City News "Drama on Pattaya Beach as crazed Australian Man is rescued from the sea" Sounds pretty normal for an aussie!
"In the early hours of Thursday Morning, Police and Sawang Boriboon Rescue Workers were called to Pattaya Beach in front of Soi 10 after reports of a foreign man who had swam out to sea were received by concerned members of the public. A rescue boat was scrambled to the location after the man who was thought to be drunk and mentally disturbed, could not be located. Eventually the man was recovered from the sea, some 500 meters off the shoreline. The naked man, later identified as Mr. John Trevor aged 42 from Australia, sustained a minor head injury and a cut to his right foot and was attended to by rescue workers before he was taken to Pattaya Police Station and incarcerated for his own safety. We understand that he proceeded to harm himself while inside one of the cells, and a foreign police volunteer was called in to assist in calming the man down. Eventually Police determined that Mr. Trevor was involved in an argument with a woman moments before entering the water and we understand the argument was over 30,000 Baht which Mr. Trevor claimed was stolen from him by the woman. The Australian Embassy in Bangkok is aware of the case and will assist Mr. Trevor and the Police over the coming days."

New Job, New School

This morning Nuch started her new job, not what she is used too. She now works in a factory not an office. The wages though are around four times better than those in Thailand. Hopefully she'll do well at it and settle down more in the UK.

At the same time Elizabeth was starting in Nursery. I have always tried to shy away from her going to Nursery. I don't know why, I guess just being protective. She is in the Duckling group and seems to be settling in well.

Anyone after a good business model should think about setting up a nursery, at £560 per month, you know it makes sense!!!!!
