Call me Madam


I woke up at sunrise this morning, in a huge, freshly made bed, with the sun slowly lifting her head over the towering high rises of Bangkok. Made coffee, and contemplated my day, having already told Nix and Tiff to do without me.

Much to my surprise, I went to the gym and did 45 minutes on the hill setting of the bike, which overlooks the pool. I could've done longer, but it was already becoming humid. Back to my suite for a mini feast of raclette and more coffee, and I caught up with the news via BBC World and the internet.

I ventured out on to the sticky streets and headed back to an artisan jewellers I'd spotted on Monday, and purchased my handmade earrings, for a song. Took a few photos of the absurdness that is Bangkok, came back, changed into my swimmies and parked myself poolside with my book - The Minaturist, which is an excellent read. 35 degrees, but cloudy, it was like sitting in a warm bath. Still no tan, but wonderfully relaxing.

Met up with the girls and boys, who after cocktails, took us to an amazing Thai restaurant. Wonderful food and service. The boys would not hear of us paying for anything at all, not even the taxis.

I am a lucky lady.
