We're coping a soaking...

June 4, 2014 was always going to be a challenge dear blogging friends,
Having said that I will take you out and about with me 
every day in June,
 as I live my daily life in Melbourne,
I find that joy of joys 
today I'm at the Doctors!

Yikes! I'm wondering how I'm going to get through this one 
with the whole world watching...

Puddles at Canterbury Gardens, Vic.
But before I take you to the Docs we have jobs to do
and the crazy poodle is bouncing off the walls wanting walking!
What's worse the official weather forecast was 
for Victoria to 'cop a soaking'
Yes it was raining....cats and dogs!

I ditch my normal park to return home after the school run 
to fetch an umbrella and put Mutt in a coat.
He's not that impressed. 
Yep he clearly feels a bit of a plonker in the posh park 
I've chosen for it's paved walkways.

The trendy little straight jacket that I bought him in the sales is great, 
it keeps him from smelling like a wet fish all day 
and also prevents him peeing on every tree that we pass.
All that velcro round his tummy & it's clearly hard to cock a leg...

Bless - I do love my dog
but not so much on rainy days!
Back from our walk, I refuse to let him inside the house.
He gets his own back by grubbing around in the garden!

Time to get to it! 
I've been working hard on clearing out my cupboards for my 
June into June minimalist challenge. 
Each day I am increasing by one thing, items to chuck out 
I'm seeking four things today....
A quick tidy of my herb drawer and four things are identified and jettisoned!

Look what I spotted on the way back from the park,
Recycling Bins!
These could be handy when I've got more to get rid of?

For my 30 Day Abs challenge we have a rest day today
Hooray, as my knees are still feeling it from the 1000 steps on Monday!

With the walk & housework over it's off to the Docs...
I didn't like to tell you earlier in case you clicked 'close'
but I'm here for my Well Woman checks!
Here is the surgery and that's as far as you are coming!
Bet you're relieved!!

Our Doctors surgery is a typical red brick building in the area

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
I might take you grocery shopping
I bet you can't wait!
Each day I am linking to a new meme 
Today I have chosen Outdoor Wednesday.
So glad you stuck with me to the end after that indelicate start!
Hello everyone, nice to meet you!

Friendship Friday!

Hello dear friends in Blogland. How are you doing? I am pleased to be here for Friendship Friday
I've had a great week and have well and truly settled back into my Asian life  where I am enjoying making new friends both locally and in here in the blogosphere.

I've had fun, I have joined a new group - the American Women's Club of Thailand.
Why the American's when you're a British Aussie? You may well ask. Well firstly they take anyone, these Expat women's groups really are not that fussy!

Well, except for the ANZWG Group where you need to be closely associated with Australia and New Zealand. I am, I have the passport and I have a family, home and of course an Aussie Crazy Poodle Down Under and I miss my Melbourne life terribly,  but my life in Thailand is more about meeting women from around the globe.

I have always had lots of American friends, I chat with many Americans via my blog...

... anyway they let this little bird in and she's chirpy about that!

The Expat - an A to Z of how not to make friends.

Ok, so I have now officially disgraced myself with the Americans…
A little bit of backstory, I moved to Bangkok eighteen months ago. It was a tricky move coming from the eight times winner of the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ Melbourne, Australia to one of the most polluted, congested and the world’s hottest capital city… I gave up a meaningful job that I loved, in the Not-for-Profit sector to become a lady of leisure.

I threw myself into life here. I enjoyed the travel and getting to know Bangkok, and we had loads of visitors, but this year everything changed when we moved into our forever place in Bangkok. Hated it, nothing worked, was miserable, so had a great summer traveling the globe visiting family and friends instead.

Back in Bangkok, ready to immerse back into my Thai life, I am moving into a new apartment and ready to make some new friends, I joined a few expat organisations…
I know, I know being an Expat sounds glamorous, we have left the homeland, or in my case homelands, and j…

Brilliant Britain in the Spring

It has been a long, hard and bleak British winter which has made Spring  all the more delightful for everyone, and especially wonderful for me  arriving in the UK from the hot and humid tropics.

Of course, we arrived to for a quick visit to catch up with family and friends  to find everyone apologising for the dismal, cold weather  - not at all I said, I love it cool these days!

We've had a wonderful time, enjoying beautiful Britain in the Spring.  Everything seems particularly green this year.
The flowers are out to delight, we just love the tulips at Dyrham House and the bluebells woods are stunning. By the May Bank holiday weekend, the weather was being reported as a 28-degree scorcher. Yeah right, it was spot on perfect for me. 
I'm heading back to Bangkok this week where the temperature will be scorching no fib!

I have finished off my Blogging from A to Z (2018) Challenge. Thank you to everyone who has popped over to find me at my new space on the internet. In case you m…
